The space

There is unlimited, fast internet access in the whole apartment. The apartment was completely refurbished 7 years ago and it is very modern.


My property is in NW10, Willesden Junction. It is an area very close to Wembley, Portobello Market and Queens Park, Westfield Shopping Centre and the Central Middlessex Hospital ( buses (phone number hidden) and 226).

Transport facilities are very good, two underground stations ( Zone 2), Bakerloo Line which takes about 25 minutes to Oxford St or Piccadilly Circus. The overground will take you all over North London or to the South with a final destination in Clapham Junction. There are also a number of buses to take you to central London, number 18 to Euston, 266 to Hammersmith or to Golders Green. For more information look into (website hidden) where you can get all the information regarding public transport.

If you like to exercise, Roundwood Park is just a 5 minute walk where you can exercise in a very relaxed setting but if you are more into swimming or weight training, Willesden Sports Centre is a 12 minute walk. The sport centre is very good and you can pay by the day, so you could incorporate training in your holidays or your short stay. For more information about the centre please have a look at their web page: (website hidden) There is also a Bikram yoga centre about 15 minutes bus ride from the flat: (website hidden) If you are interested in mediation and more alternative ways of life, the Brahma Kumaris centre is a 15 minute walk from the flat, more info in : (website hidden)

The area has quite a few good affordable restaurants ranging from Spanish, Caribbean, Brazilian and Iranian as well as a few good pubs on the Harrow Road such as the trendy Paradise or William the IV.

The flat was completely refurbished in 2009 with all modern facilities. There are two bedrooms, one occupied by me and a double room which is the room offered to rent. You will have access to quite large family kitchen and if the weather is good, to a garden which faces the sun all morning and afternoon. You will also have access unlimited access to Internet through WIFI.

I am flexible in terms of checking in and out and you will have your own keys. If you are a driver I have a guest parking permit so there is no problem for you to bring your car.

I love London and have quite a busy social life, so I can also give you information about this wonderful city in terms of what is going on for people who want to feel the real London and not just the tourist visits and if you are a dancer... that is my passion, so you will have all that information at your hands. I speak English, Spanish, French some Portuguese, some Italian , and my son is fluent in French so we can answer questions in a few languages and help you if you need further information about the area.

I think I have covered quite a lot, but please if there is anything I have left out, just email me and will be happy to answer all your questions.

I hope to see you soon in my home soon

The house has a very strong odour of authentic food smells which we found unpleasant. There is no tea/coffee in the room. It was very noisy. We had booked 2 nights but only stayed one.

Response from Pilar:
I feel that I have to respond to the unfair review from this guest: Perhaps you don't understand the concept of airbnb and that you come into a family home, where people cook and go on in their daily lives. You are right, I was cooking, and what you refer to as 'authentic cooking' it is called curry. If you are so against ' authentic food' perhaps on your next trip you may have to consider to go into a hotel where there are no smells. It seems that you may have a problem with smells, or perhaps being British, you don't accept other peoples' cuisines. In regards of my welcome being cold, I engage with my clients as much as I can perceive that they are willing to do so. I remember you coming into the kitchen where I showed yo where the cofee and the are and also the microwave. I am intolerant to milk, so I showed you that I had soya milk. Again, this is not a hotel, and I do not provide with tea, cofee in their rooms, however, I always invite my guests to take as much as they wish from the draw where I keep it. You did not show any interest. Furthermore, when you came with your partner, he did not even have the courtesy to say hello to me. Your engagement was limited to asking me if I had wine glasses which I showed you and you took them to the room. Therefore, I was not going to engage in conversation with a client who was clear not interested. In regards of the noise, I would also like to remind you that this is a home where life happens, and i made a conscious effort to finish my cooking at 10.30pm not to disturb you and your partner. Again, this is not a hotel but a family home. That you decided to stay only one day, it was your choice and in fact I was away for the weekend, therefore, you would have been on your own during the weekend. I also would like to confirm that I was not late. I always offer clients the flexibility of leaving the luggage so they can explore London. When you arrived in the evening, your room was ready, so I am not sure what it is that you consider being late. I would suggest that if you use airbnb again you rent your own apartment , because it is clear that you are not able to accept smells, noise and ' authentic cooking.
