Hi there!

The advantages of renting a room in our place :

1)Reasonable rent. Why pay more, possibly much more, for a room in Central London when you can hop on the tube, a minute away, which takes you into the heart of London?
2)Spacious and comfortable accommodation.
3) Safe, friendly family ambience.
4)A beautiful garden where you can sit and chill out!
5)Very convenient for travel.
6)Very convenient for amenities: the park, restaurants, shops just a minute away!
7)Off street parking (please note cars are parked on the property at guests' own risk!).

A bit more:
There is satellite tv (46inch flat screen), Wifi, washing machine, dryer, kitchen, garden etc.
The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Guests have use of the communal facilities: lounge, diner, kitchen, tv room. There are two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath and shower) as well as downstairs cloakroom. Great news! We have recently refurbished our shower room to high standards. We have re-tiled, fitted new shower enclosure, new toilet, new vanity unit (washbasin and cupboard) and new illuminated, sensor operated, mirrored cabinet. The shower room is a delight to use!
We have a beautiful garden which has a range of shrubs and trees, a lawn and tables to sit at and eat outdoors if you should so wish (weather permitting!).
As mentioned, we are particularly well placed for public transport. We are just one minute from the tube (subway) station.
The centre of Edgware is nearby with its shopping centre and other amenities.
We are opposite Canons Park, a beautiful park where you can enjoy the walks and the scenic views.

This room has a single bed but we can put out an extra folding bed if required for a second person.

We can, if required, provide meals as an optional extra but otherwise we are happy to provide tea, coffee, etc at no charge.
Guests also have free use of washing machine and dryer (including soap powder) once a week but for additional use there is a charge of £5 per wash.

Please note that this is a family home and we are looking for guests who are comfortable in family surroundings. We have had the occasional guest who expects 5 star hotel quality. If you want perfection then please book into a 5 star hotel (and pay their rates!!)! However, I am pleased to say that the vast majority of our guests (from here and from other websites) have been very happy with their stay. I should also add that we welcome constructive comments as we are always striving to improve.

Please also note that we can only consider booking requests which are accompanied by profile and photo. We may ask to see ID upon arrival.

    The room was very nice and clean! Phil was really nice and answered any questions we had! It was also very convenient because it was only a minute walk from the underground train station.

    The house is really close to underground station and to the lovely Cannons park. You also have to visit St Lawrence's old baroque church nearby.

    Die Wohnung lag ca. 200 Meter von der nächsten U BAhn Station entfernt , ziemlich ausserhalb von London . Die hier verkehrende Linie hat fast alle wichtigen Punkte angefahren , war echt gut . Das Zimmer war wie angegeben , ebenso das Bad . Frühstück hatten wir nicht gebucht , sah aber lecker aus . Alles in allem auf alle Fälle seinen Preis wert .

    I enjoyed staying at phils house. The room and the house in general are really clean and comfortable. the room is exactly like on the photos. The house is only one minute from the tube station and in 20 minutes you can be in central london! So it is perfect for everyone who wants to explore london with a small budget. Phil was really friendly and did his best to make sure his guests felt welcome and comfortable.

    Phil and Aquilla were a delightful and gracious host family, making a lone traveller feel welcome in their home. We shared interesting, lively and varied conversations during lovely breakfasts overlooking their peaceful garden. Phil helped me plan my daily itinerary to ensure that I had a wonderful experience of London. Thank you both for your thoughtfulness.
