Maria was an amazingly warm welcoming host and made us feel at home from the moment we met her. Very generous, fun and loving person to be around. Served great breakfast and was always there to provide any assistance with enthusiasm! She recommended places as per our interests and had amazing recs for all kinds of stuff-- be it restaurant recommendations, things to do and what not to do, booking a cab for the airport, directing routes and options for transport, etc... So warm, welcoming and fun was our stay with her that we feel she provided us a home away from home in London!
Oh not to forget...keeps her place spotlessly clean!
Maria was a gracious and generous host; offering her time and local knowledge, though equally happy to allow her guests privacy. Maria has lived in her home for many years and this reflects in her ability to offer good advice. Her home is well presented, very clean and furnished to a high level. The bedroom was of good proportions; with a comfortable bed, storage and washbasin. The area is quiet. The location of her home is convenient for Kensington and Exhibition Road, and Olympia. Both the Underground and buses are within easy reach. Overall, I felt I had underpaid. I would certainly recommend Maria's listing.
Maria's house was perfect, a warm and lovely place in a great area of town. Thanks for fitting is in at such short notice and when you were thousands of miles away : )
