The space

Hi there! Welcome to our apartment. You'll have a charming double bedroom, with direct access to a private balcony and a big, modern bathroom that's all yours.

Your bedroom, bathroom and balcony are all situated in the first half of the apartment so you'll have plenty of privacy.

Then there's the fully equipped open plan kitchen and living room which you're welcome to use and enjoy.

What more can we say? You'll love it.

Guest access

You'll be able to access the whole place, apart from our bedroom of course! You'll also get access to two travel cards, a Lonely Planet of London and an extensive restaurant guide to get you inspired. You're also free to use the laundry machine, because who doesn't love clean socks right?

Interaction with guests

Giada and I will try to help you have the best stay in London. We're been Airbnb hosts for a few years now, and we're proud to say that our guests love us and give us really positive feedback. Between us we speak six languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Hindi.

We know London inside out, we can provide you with information on local customs, travel planning or restaurant recommendations. With Giada being Italian, we definitely know the best pizzerias in London!

We have busy lives and both work during the week (usually 8.30am till 7pm) , but feel free to reach out to us if you need anything, or simply go ahead and do your own thing. We're happy either way.

Other things to note

We're easygoing, flexible people so there's not much else to note. We just ask that during the week (Monday - Friday) you don't use the kitchen between 7am - 8am as that's when we're getting ready to go to work and will need the space. Don't worry, we're very good at being quiet :) And please let us know in advance if you want breakfast. Some guests don't want it, so these days we ask. We offer one milk or juice, one loaf of multi-seeded bread, butter, delicious berry jams, chunky peanut butter and something called Marmite which a true English classic. Oh and there's plenty of good coffee and tea.

Vinay and Giada's place is very nice and stylish. They are friendly and helpful even though we didn't have much chance to see them as they go out early for work. The bedroom is cozy and lovely. Also, private bathroom is super new and clean.

Staying with Vinay and Giada is the best thing you can do. The flat is super nice and they provide you with everything you need. It is a bit of a walk from the tube station but the neighbourhood is nice and safe, also at night. Vinay and Giada are extremely friendly and helpful. Ask them anything about London and they will give you lots of recommendations. When they're home they're always up for a chat and they make absolutely sure that you're comfortable and getting the best out of you stay. I'd come back everytime!

The room is as described and the flat was charming. The best part of the stay was having Vinay and Giada as our hosts. They are so welcoming and will help you find the best places and navigate around the city. The underground station is a long walk (15-20 minutes) but there are so many bus stops right by the flat so this wasn't an issue for us. I would 100% recommend staying here!

Cosy place with a separate but private bathroom. Tower Bridge is in walking distance and a bus stop is also nearby (cca 5-10 mins). Hosts were really understanding regarding our baby who was a bit fussy during the stay. They also provided us Oyster cards which is really thoughtful and handy for a temporary stay in London.

Really nice guests! Whenever we had questions they could give us great tips where to find the fun and interesting stuff in London. The bedroom and bathroom are perfect for a vacation for two and the apartement overall is very cute. Would be back there with pleasure!
