Gary's flat in London is a gem! It is just doors away from a variety of tasty restaurants, pubs, coffee houses, and a quick walk to buses, and the tube, while still feeling more like part of a neighborhood than a tourist area. There is a grocery a block away. If you're interested in shopping Oxford St.and Regents St. are a few blocks away. It is also within walking distance to the British Museum. Inside, it is comfortable, neat, and whimsical with generous window light and attractive views. There are double paned windows to block street noise. The kitchen is large by European standards with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Gary has thoughtfully provided hairdryers, adapters and other travelers' necessities and a lovely selection of bath products. The master bedroom has an orthopedic mattress and the smaller bedroom's bed was very comfortable, too. The bathroom has a very spacious bathtub/shower. He met us at the flat with a big, warm smile and made us very welcome and thoughtfully explained how things worked in the apartment, how to get around, and where to eat locally. All of his communication was very friendly, helpful, and timely. We would recommend Gary and his home highly.

We lived in this flat as we were at home! Gary is a perfect host: he offered us drink and chocolate, and we appreciated it very much. In the flat we had all we needed: the beds are very comfortable (amazing orthopaedic mattress!), the kitchen is really well equipped (even if we didn't cook very often, because food in London is delicious and rather little expensive). We have been pleasently surprised by the calm of the street. At last, the decoration is great, warm and very british, and our children want the same now! Very next to Oxford Street (bus, tube, shops...). We wish to go back soon, thank you, Gary!

Gary was a very nice guy and very obliging. He met us at the apartment as arranged and explained how to use the heating and all appliances. He provided all detergents for dishwasher and washing machine as well as all essentials for the bathroom and the basics for breakfast. The apartment was as displayed very clean and comfortable. The location was great a few minutes walk to Oxford Circus and the underground. Plenty of Pubs nearby and some excellent restaurants.
