House rulesWe offer this accommodation to people who come to our city for the purpose of visiting, are sensitive enough to understand their allocated space is part of our family home and that Caroline & I are both working and are not professional hoteliers
Anyone who'd like to use our room as a “love nest” for example (e.g. to stay in all the time to only come out just for the bare necessities) or have breakfast at noon, or anything of that ilk, we would recommend several fine hotels in our area but our house is not one of them.
Breakfast is between 8 - 10 am. We can provide in our kitchen a space in the fridge for some drinks but no cooking. You are welcome to use the washing machine if you are staying with us for longer than 7 days.
We would require to take a copy of your passport or photo ID on arrival please.
No smoking & no pets.

Reviews of this property
We want to thank George & Carolina again for our great stay. Our weekend couldn't have been any better thanks to their warm hospitality! We're glad we got to meet both of you! 'Till next time!

I was with my 11 year old daughter a wonderful stay at this charming furnished house. George was very helpful and gave us every morning, a good breakfast and even evening Caroline has left us their kitchen if we wanted to prepare us a snack. Without this wonderful property with its friendly inhabitants our London trip would not have been so successful!
Ich hatte mit meiner 11-jährigen Tochter einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in diesem charmant eingerichteten Haus. George war ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und hat uns jeden Morgen ein gutes Frühstück gemacht und sogar am Abend hat uns Caroline ihre Küche überlassen, wenn wir uns eine Kleinigkeit zubereiten wollten. Ohne diese wunderbare Unterkunft mit ihren freundlichen Bewohnern wäre unser London-Trip nicht so gelungen gewesen!
My son (16 y) and I had a wonderfull stay at the George and Carolines home. Their house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood in front of a friendly little family park.There are frequent busses driving to Victoria station within 20 minutes. George and Caroline are cheerfull, intelligent people who like to share opinions with you but also respect your privacy. They are willing to give some good advices of visiting nice places in their beloved city. ('Richmond as a beautifull little village within the metropole of London') In the morning the breakfast, served in their sun room with view on the garden, visited by squirrels,was always a good start for the rest of the day.(and George can make some good coffee!). Our bed- and bathroom were nice, clean and had an atmosfere of their own like the rest of their house. We immediately felt at ease with our hosts and their house. I certainly will recommend this place to my friends as an comfortable starting point of visiting dynamic London. With kind regards to George and Caroline from Pieke and Jesse from Holland.
It was a great pleasure staying at Caroline and George's home! The home is very pleasant, in a surprisingly quiet neighbourhood, despite the closeness to London city. That surprised us. The breakfast is great and fills you up a lot, which is important to at least one of us :-)
Both Caroline and George really understand how to A. On one hand make you feel at home and try to help you as much as they possibly can and B. On the other hand discretely leave you alone to enjoy your stay in London. Very well done!
Thank you very much for a great stay and please give us a hint, when you go to Denmark (this last comment is only meant for Caroline and George, and not the rest of you. Sorry!)!
George and Caroline are very hospitable and helpful. The room was nice and overlooks the green garden. The breakfast was ok and plenty. It was nice to sit in the closed veranda. It was easy to go to the city centre by bus or subway, even at night. There is a busstop nearby. We enjoyed our stay. London is fantastic!
My parents thank you for the wonderful stay. They were excited and Begegnug be kept in good Errinnerung. Thank you
Meine Eltern danken für den wunderschönen Aufenthalt. Sie waren begeistert und werden die Begegnug in guter Errinnerung behalten. Danke
We had my son (13 years old) and I (46) far too short stay with Caroline and George! Their house is very nice and very well located in the center of London, in a very quiet area (birds, squirrels ... at will). As for George and Caroline themselves, they proved extraordinarily welcoming and friendly, willing to do anything to help us and make us happy! We absolutely do not regret having chosen their company and return home when we go back to London. Big thank you to both of these great time!
Nous avons passé, mon fils (13 ans) et moi (46) un bien trop court séjour chez Caroline et George! Leur maison est très agréable et très bien située par rapport au centre de Londres, dans un quartier très paisible (oiseaux, écureuils... à volonté). Quant à George et Caroline eux-mêmes, ils se sont montrés extraordinairement accueillants et chaleureux, prêts à tout pour nous aider et nous faire plaisir! Nous ne regrettons absolument pas d'avoir fait le choix de leur compagnie et retournerons chez eux quand nous irons de nouveau à Londres. Grand merci à tous les deux pour ces excellents moments!
My daughter and I (45 years old + 12 years) were housed for 5 days at Caroline & George, and it was a fantastic time! The property is relatively close to the center, is very quiet and has a good position to capture a visitor to London. Caroline and George are excellent hosts, we talked a lot and we were invited to dinner together. When we needed help, you've met them and I would not hesitate to book with you again. Thanks for the good time!
Meine Tochter und ich (45 Jahre + 12 Jahre alt) waren für 5 Tage bei Caroline & George untergebracht und es war eine fantastische Zeit ! Die Unterkunft ist relativ nah zum Zentrum, ist sehr ruhig und hat eine gute Ausgangslage um London als Besucher zu erobern. Caroline und George sind ausgezeichnete Gastgeber, wir haben viel gesprochen und wir wurden zum gemeinsamen Essen eingeladen. Wenn wir Hilfe benötigten haben Sie diese übererfüllt und ich würde jederzeit wieder bei Ihnen buchen. Vielen Dank für diese gute Zeit !
Very good location to explore the city.
Lovely house in quiet area. It is if you are on the countryside. Perfect host.
It can't be better.
Staying at Georges and Carolines place for five days was the best decision, we made when we(mother 53 and daughter 16) were in London. They are kind, caring, helpfull, interrested and discreet, too.
We enjoyed the room, the tea and the breakfast and their beautyfull house.
