We spent three wonderful days at Bernard and Micheal home. Everything was perfect: the appartment is very clean and quiet, with a beautifull view to the canal and well located (nearly the underground). The bedroom and the batch are private and we can easely access to the kitchen for preparing our breakfast. Bernard and Micheal are hosts very thoughtful and always available for helping us to organize our stay in London. We were enchanted and we stongly recommend this very beautiful address.

Thanks again for being your guests and the warm welcome, we had a great time in your lovely home and never felt like strangers.
Berhard put great efforts in making our stay to something specail and although we spent almost all the time with shopping all recommendations we tried out have been woth it.
The room where we slept was cosy with a lot of lovely details, absolutely clean (same for the bathroom) and had a beautiful view to the canal. We always had access to kitchen and living room and Bernard and Michael were really interested in what we experienced all the day.
You both - Bernard and Michael - are really nice guys, we are happy meeting you and wanna say thanks again for being such great hosts.
We came as father and son and were really impressed about the excellent place, bedroom and bath are beautiful and absolute private. Bernhard and Michael are excellent hosts. Bernhard provided best recommendations about day-tours, locations and transport. Very comfortable for us was, that we could easily use the kitchen to prepare breakfast or fast dinner. We would come back every time.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with these lovely men. The room and bath is extremely private. They are more then willing to offer ideas and assistance for your visit to London. They also provide the makings of a complete breakfast to begin each day!
Thanks to Bernard and Michael we had a wonderful time in London. Bernard is a great gide who is very willing to help how to get where. Appartment was comfortable and cosy. Had a fantastic time with my son. Best regards, Annet Saatrube

Great appartment, nice surroundings, easy access to the centre. Bernard en Michael make you feel at home in their beautiful appartment. We had our own batchroom and could use their kitchen, balcony and their livingroom for breakfast. They gave us tips to do things we otherwise would'nt have done. They were interested, but also let us go our own way. I'll certainly want to stay here again when in London.
We had a fantastic time in London with Bernard and Michael as perfect hosts. It felt like home and we had a "click" with them at once. Thanks to Bernards tips we spent our time very well in London. The room is clean and complete. We will certainly return here at our next visit. Thank you Bernard and Michael!!
This is my second experience with Wimdu and it was a great one. Wimdu can be prod to have hosts like Bernard and Michael. They are fantastic!!!! There home is your home, you are staying in a very pretty room with your own private and absolutely clean bathroom with all facilities like towls, showergel, hair dryer and so on. Bernard and Michael are fantastic and lovely hosts, they give us a lot of advice to explore the city. Michael, we loved our crumpets in the morning on top your homemade jam! The flat is located in a good area with nice restaurants and near to tube and bus stations. Thank you for everything!! Hope to see you again!!! Warm regards!
