I spent a whole month with Barbro and Duncan and truly enjoyed every single moment of my staying. The location is amazing, one of the safest and most quite areas of London, just 5 minutes walking from the Tube or the train. The house is lovely and the room is perfect, with a big comfortable bed, TV, wardrobe and a big separate private bathroom with bath/shower. Both spaces are very clean as they have a cleaning lady coming once a week.
The breakfast is amazing (you don't almost need to have lunch after that!), with bread/marmalate, yogourt, cereals, fruits, eggs, tomatoes... They both are excellent cookers and really enjoy it.
They are also very helpfull and ready to suggest you the best places ever to visit, ect..
I left London with the feeling of leaving part of my family, and I will come back to visit them as soon as I can!
