À propos de ce logement

We've had our Harlesden flat for 18 months and spent the past 9 renovating it. The private south facing 50ft garden is gorgeous with a BBQ. We have two bedrooms, one is a huge double with a fireplace and the second is a smaller double which has a single day bed from Ikea which turns into a king size bed. The Bakerloo & Overground station is 5 mins walk and 25 mins to Oxford Circus. We're close to Westfield, Wembley, Kensal Rise and a 20 min journey from the major London parks and wild spaces.

Description

We've had our Harlesden flat for 18 months and spent the past 9 renovating it. The private south facing 50ft garden is gorgeous with a BBQ. We have two bedrooms, one is a huge double with a fireplace and the second is a smaller double which has a single day bed from Ikea which turns into a king size bed. The Bakerloo & Overground station is 5 mins walk and 25 mins to Oxford Circus. We're close to Westfield, Wembley, Kensal Rise and a 20 min journey from the major London parks and wild spaces.

Our home is a renovated ground floor Victorian flat that's bright and airy.

We've got big bi-fold doors opening into the 50ft south facing back garden which provide a mini-oasis from the lively town of Harlesden which we're moments from the High Street. "The High Street is awash with fresh fish shops, hair shops, hairdressers, barbers, and an array of grocers that sell a stunning range of vegetables from okra to ackee" writes local author in her great book A London Safari about life in Harlesden - bring them back to cook on the BBQ or in our new kitchen where you can help Larissa justify her collection of ever growing cook books. There's a double electric oven, dishwasher, gas hob, large family fridge and cupboards are fully stocked with crockery/serving plates.

The bathroom has a cornered free standing bath with two shower attachments, a hand-held and a ceiling fixed rainforest shower head plus a vintage renovated Singer-Sewing machine sink!

You'll share the space with King Kpelle, our west African cat who moved to the UK with us in 2015. He's a low maintenance and friendly chap who sleeps most of the day when he's not out stalking around the garden or in a stand off with our neighbour's cat Pablo.

Full access to all rooms and garden except for our storage room and garden shed which we'll move some of our things into to make space for you!

Larissa's sister lives in Harlesden too and as Duncan travels often for work she uses it as an excuse to spend time with her and her family. It's likely, unless we're both travelling, Larissa will be 10 minutes walk away and on hand to help with anything. Depending on her whereabouts (which she'll let you know before you come) she'll either be able to pop in each day to feed King Kpelle, or leave some food and ask you to feed/water him.

Reading a blog about Harlesden by Rose is a great way to get an insider's view to a changing neighbourhood:

We are 5 minutes walk from Harlesden underground station (zone 3) Bakerloo line and overground line to Euston. A 10 minute walk away is Willesden Junction which is zone 2 on the underground (Bakerloo) and also on two overground lines connecting you across London in all directions easily. See B3 on this helpful London Transport map for underground and over ground train stations:
There are also quite a few buses you can get including the Number 18 which stops 3 minutes from our house in both directions (we are the St Mary's bus stop) and you can see the full route here.
Popular places like Nottinghill Gate can be reached easily by walking to Willesden Junction (10/12 minutes), hopping on the Overground to Shepherd's Bush (1 stop also home to Westfield shopping mall) and switching to the Underground Central Line for 1 stop to Nottinghill Gate. Coming for a concert or sporting fixture at Wembley Stadium? We're just two station stops away meaning you're easily in and out of the event without having to stay in the heart of the craziness!

Larissa is a five star host, she is wonderful. Her attention to detail amazing from the very first communication, we felt we knew her and the neighbourhood long before our visit. Her guidebook is full of interesting facts and things to do, she put a lot of effort into it. We did not meet Duncan, he was away but we did meet and had fun with the wonderful feline King Kpelle! Larissa anticipated our every need, she provided excellent goodies in the fridge. We had a fun time in London, access by tube was very convenient to all the sites and to Heathrow. The apartment is spacious and wonderfully decorated and the garden is an oasis to come home to after a day of site-seeing, south facing and ever sunny, we had our breakfast outside each morning. The neighbourhood is a vibrant mix of many cultures, fantastic food stores (stocking foods from all over the world) and interesting independent shops. We will be returning for sure, looking forward to it already......

Happy and easy going I love being able to find a home away from home when travelling for fun or work! Love marmite, good times, adventures and friends. I run an adventure travel business Another World Adventures and am happily married to Duncan Copeland who I travel with often. We are new hosts to Airbnb, Duncan has been using it for his own trips for ages so we thought we'd give it a go!
