The house is delightful, large & spacious & full of character. We had everything we required & it is conveniently located down a quiet side street with access to amenities & Clapton station just a few, short minutes walk away. Sophie was very easy to communicate with & very accommodating & her neighbours are lovely too. Gary the cat is so friendly & a pleasure to look after & even became a hit with our 1 year old daughter who has been petrified of cats & dogs! A great base for us visiting the Olympic stadium & as a base to explore London. Would very happily use again.

Wonderful, clean and large house in a lively, yet quiet neighbourhood. Good services, including underground station, close to the house. The cat that we had to care for during our stay was a pleasure to have around. Good beds, we slept like babies.

Usefull and large house, with easy connection to London city center via the train (3 stations from Liverpool Street).Only constraint: you have to love cats.

Well equipped, comfortable house. Very good transport to the city. Beds are good, cat is friendly. Lots of shops and pubs in the neighborhood, but also nice parks for walking or running. Olympic Parc on a few miles distance! The only disadvantage was the building work at the neighbor's house. Noise starting at 8 am. Sophie mentioned it a few weeks before we arrived, which was kind, but we had no possibility to look for an alternative. Apart from that, Sophie's house is the perfect place for a family to stay and discover London.

Thanks for a nice review Henriette. I'm sorry the building work caused you some disturbance - hopefully the special discount we gave you made this a bit less painful.

Sophie is a great host! We really enjoyed the house and Gary the cat is very nice. Unfortunately, there were reconstruction works in the house next to Sophie's, that is why we had to wake up at 7:30 a.m, also the house was rather cold and we had to use a lot of heating, because of which we had not a very pleasant conversation with Sophie.

Sophie's house was pefect. Near from Clapton Overground station (10/15min min to London), near from shops (eat, supermarket). We were 7 adults and the house is big, with manies bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Sophie's neighbour give us the key and he was very firendly. Gary (the cat) was pretty cool and not annoying us ! To sum up : Perfect House, Perfect Place and Perfect trip ! We would be happy to return there and we definitively recommend this house! Thank you Sophie. Thomas.

We were met by Sophie'sbrother who was very helpful and friendly and gave us lots of recommendations for where to eat locally and where to visit. (Stoke newington) a lovely local village style area with lots of lovely shops and cafes. The house was ideal for our family and the beds were really comfortable. Free street parking and great bus routes in to Central London. There was a great park around the corner with a large green area tennis courts and playground with sand pit. The house had every thing you could need very homely and relaxing. And lovely little garden. The cat Gary was very easy and the children loved him. Would definitely recommend staying here and would stay again. Thanks. Anne

We are a London family who loves to make the most of this great city. We enjoy music, art, cinema, eating delicious food we make at home or find in local restaurants. We also love to go on holiday, often in the UK (Wales, Norfolk, Cornwall) and also to Italy and Spain. We want guests to enjoy our house which is comfortable but not flash! We also hope that they use it as a base to get to know the vibrant local area and people, much as we hope to get to know the places and people that we visit.
