The property is our family home where we live and have 2 x double bedrooms available for renting. The house is within walking distance of SmithKline's head office and Thames Valley University Campus. We're a 15 minute tube ride to the National History and Science Museums and 30 minutes to Central London. Walking distance to typical London pubs close to the river Thames and walking distance to Brentford main line station for Waterloo. Kew Gardens are across the river and a short bus ride away.
Public transportation is super close, there are two bus stops either side of our road going into Ealing, West Ealing, Brentford and Northfields.
Alternatively, it takes 5 minutes to walk to Northfields from our house, where there's a tube line going straight into Central London. It will take approximately 30 mins into Central London from Northfields and 15 mins to South Kensington Station - where you'll find the National History Museum and Science Museum. Going the opposite way, you can take the tube from Northfields directly to Heathrow Airport - will take about 20 minutes.
Tea/coffee is available throughout the day. You're welcome to smoke, but only in the garden. We live on a family-friendly street, so generally like to keep it down after 11pm.
I'm originally from Sri Lanka, but came to England back in the 70's and have lived in West London ever since. I've lived in my home for over 24 years with my husband and two children. My eldest has now moved out, but my youngest is at University so swings by every now and then! We live in a great part of London, so I'll be able to recommend some great local restaurants, pubs, bars and shops. We've had many London university students live with us in the past, and thought we'd try out Airbnb now. Hope to see you soon :)
