It was such fun to meet you and Christopher and spend a week in your lovely home. I got a real sense of living in London. You took such good care of us and are a great source of information and encouragement. Many thanks! Hope your summer continues to go well and your guests are as happy as we were.  
Jean, Libby and I arrived safely in Albuquerque and Stephen arrived safely in Budapest.  We had a lovely time with you in London and thank you for all of your care while we were with you.  It was very special to all of us.  Here is a photo of our back yard this morning. Libby.  July 2016

I arrived safely on Sunday and am (sadly) headed back to work today. I can’t thank you enough for your lovely and generous hospitality– my stay in London was such a pleasure. I’m looking forward to my next visit!  My very best wishes to you and Christopher.  Keenan June 2016,

LisaI just want to say “MANY MANY THANKS” to you!!  You made my trip in London much wonderful and memorable.  I was quite lucky that I met you and C and stayed in your lovely house! Thank you very much for your kind and warm hospitality. Though it was only 2 days stay in your home, I feel as if I lived there for a long time.  Again, thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me.  I miss you so much. I miss the lovely breakfast and chatting with you!!  I’ll definitely come back to London and see you again. Tomoko, Japan, October 2015

We came here as guests and we leave as great friends.  Renate, Germany, September 2015 

Thanks for making our recent visit to London so memorable. We enjoyed your beautiful home and our comfortable rooms as well as your lovely and quiet neighborhood. Your pub recommendation made us feel right at home with the locals. Breakfasts were beyond our expectations, and we enjoyed talking with you every morning about our sightseeing plans. We will certainly recommend your home in London to our traveling friends. Martha, USA, July 2015 

Many thanks for your help to find this wonderful home in London.  The warm and familiar atmosphere, so much beauty, the harmony of colours, the interesting talks and themes at the breakfast table. My grandchildren of 12 and 14 years and I had a wonderful time and especially I was always happy to come back to our calm and peaceful island in the middle of the ocean of the busy buzzing fascinating London.  Christiane, Germany, May 2015

We were welcomed into a wonderful home – looked after with exceptional care, attention and warmth and we felt like private guests to the family. Jean is an exceptional host – we had the most wonderful breakfast times together – got a really good start to our days.  I highly recommend this lovely and unique host.  Thank you very much for all your care and attention and recommending this beautiful home.  Susanne, Austria, December 2014

The Portland Road host is a great owner and her house is a beauty and my parents really enjoyed to stay there and to visit London from Holland Park. You were right, it’s good to change from Victoria to Nottinghill and so easy to get to the center from there.  Caroline, France, August 2014 

I´m really grateful of found you in At Home in London you were so kind with me, your advices about London the long discussions about politics, sports, history, economy and many more things, I enjoyed them so much. Everything was great you are that kind of people whose hospitality makes travel easier. Juan, Argentina, June 2014 

Our London accommodation just couldn’t have been more comfortable! J and C are superb hosts, generous, attentive and good-humoured, supplying us with lots of anecdotes, advices and tea (or whatever else you need). And what hilarious breakfast conversation we had! Whenever I light a candle I think of J and our truly wonderful time in Portland Road.  Felicitas, Germany, April 2014

The house is very conveniently located with many small shops and boutiques around, 24-hour bus 94 takes you to the very centre of London, and the house itself is so stylish and full of elegant details and decorations, and there was a gorgeous real New Year tree in the sitting room. The hosts were very thoughtful and caring, gave us scarves to warm us up during our walks, welcomed us with hot tea and biscuits and amazing home-made mince pies, and after the NYE fireworks they were waiting for us with champagne and a delicious cake! And J’s English breakfasts and the exquisite way she serves them were absolutely excellent! We had a fantastic holiday!

It goes without saying that when in London we will never stay in a hotel again, now that we know how wonderful it is to stay in a real English home.  Thank you once more for recommending this home to me.  Natalia & Sergey, Russia, December 2013
