Great place to be when you want to visit London. The flat is in a very nice neighbourhood with lots of pubs, shops, parks, etc. It is easy to travel on buses and the tube, especially if you come from Heathrow. The flat is located in a quiet street and has everything you need to make you comfortable.

Arranging the swap went very smoothly. We used the HE draft agreement/confirmation letter for this purpose. Cynthia and Graham were present upon arrival and explained the apartment. The apartment is exactly as described and situated within close reach to busses to inter alia Kensington, Sheperd's Bush underground and shopping centre and other important attractions. Thtouristy. The neighborhood is lovely, coffee shops, bakeries and pubs nearby etc and not too touristy. Quite residential. The apartment is very comfortable. good beds etc. Clean! Although we spent there only a few nights we really enjoyed the place and hope to return!

The apartment is very comfortable and well situated in a nice neighbourhood close to the underground stations and buses taking you straight into London Central. Kensington around the corner! The apartment has all you need, is clean and quiet at night. Cynthia and Graham are also very nice and were very efficient in making it all possible. Thank you very much, it was a lovely stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cynthia and Graham's flat in London. It was in a quiet neighborhood(which is a plus after the bustling noise of sightseeing all day)- an easy 15 minute walk from the Metro, and from there we could get everywhere in London we wanted to go very easily. Most of the "sites" were 15 or 20 minutes by the underground from our stop at Barons Court. The flat is compact, very clean and neat, and looks just like the pictures. One thing I would mention is that it is a one floor walk up. There are steps up to enter and then a full flight after that. It was no problem for us (because my husband carried my bag!). We are in our seventies and it really wasn't a problem, but I just mention it in case stairs might be an issue for some. It's better not to be surprised! My husband loved running in the neighborhood every day and even running over through Hyde Park. The grocery stores are near enough by (we ate all of our breakfasts and most dinners in the flat, and fixed lunches to take with us) and our last night out we ate in the steak restaurant recommended by our hosts - which was a great ending to our trip. Cynthia and Graham were great hosts, the communication was stellar; they were very responsive and had everything taken care of that we needed. Would highly recommend this home exchange!

My husband and I spent a week in this beautiful house in Winchester. What a treat! The home is very comfortable and impeccably clean with everything you might need for your stay. The beautiful private garden in back is a jewel for morning coffee or afternoon tea, and the house is in perfect walking distance to everything in this quaint little city. We so enjoyed the people, the fabulous historic Cathedral, the walking tour of the town, the blend of old and new. Some wonderful pubs and terrific restaurants, as well as walking paths and interesting sites made the week fly by. It is close to Stone Henge, Salisbury, and Oxford too which made interesting day excursions. Cynthia and Graham are excellent hosts and provide all the necessary communication to make your stay go easily. Winchester was not a place we would have thought of visiting, but now we are recommending it to everyone!

Cynthia’s and Graham’s flat is conveniently located in the lovely neighbourhood Brook Green, in fact only a step from the green itself. We enjoyed a week in October 2014 visiting the many sights of London as well as experiencing the local amenities. In 5-10 minutes walking time you’ll find an excellent gastro pub, a nice fish & chips place, supermarkets, etc. Numerous bus routes take you directly to Trafalgar Square via Kensington High Street and Hyde Park or Notting Hill and Oxford Circus. Tube stations are also nearby. The contact with Cynthia and Graham was smooth and very friendly, and we recommend them for exchanging. *************** Die Wohnung von Cynthia und Graham liegt in der schönen Gegend Brook Green, in einer Seitenstrasse des kleinen Parks. Wir haben im Oktober 2014 eine schöne Woche in London verbracht, während der wir die zahlreichen Sehenswürdigkeiten ebenso bestaunen konnten wie die lokalen Annehmlichkeiten. In 5-10 Gehminuten befinden sich ein ausgezeichnetes Gastro-Pub, ein toller Fish & Chips-Laden, Supermärkte, etc. Zahlreiche Buslinien verkehren direkt zum Trafalgar Square, nach Notting Hill und zum Oxford Circus. U-Bahnstationen gibt es ebenfalls in der Nähe. Unser Kontakt mit Cynthia und Graham war angenehm und sehr freundlich, so dass wir sie gerne für einen Haustausch empfehlen.
