About grace fields
I am a creative, and have designed my home to be both beautiful and comfortable. I love meeting new people and sharing my 'London finds' with my guests. I adore cooking and exploring the local farmer's market. There is an independent movie theatre's 5 minutes walk away, and some of London's most fashionable restaurants, shops, weekly farmer's market and cafes to enjoy, nearby.
Why grace fields chose Hampstead Town
I have grown up in this area and have lived here my whole life and it really is 'home' to me. This property is a Georgian historical Townhouse and yet has a contemporary feel as it is so light filled with high ceiling and such a lovely energy with its views of trees from the lounge windows. It is a tranquil respite from the urban energy of London. It is also in the heart of the village and so is surrounded by everything one could ever want or need.
What makes this House unique
It is in the heart of the village and yet is a spacious and peaceful place. It has great connections with the Underground being 4 minute walk away which takes you directly to the centre of London in 10 minutes.

Inadequate Accommodation For More Than A Night or Two
We are an older couple who booked a 30 night stay at this property. The location was lovely and convenient. The main problem we had was that the bathroom offered was not the one pictured on the property description. It was a tiny old bathroom with a very small shower stall. In addition, the owner’s toiletries were in the bathroom drawers. When asked if she was using this bathroom, the owner stated “Only at night”. The site said a “dedicated bathroom”, ie. private. It was NOT a bathroom with a jetted tub as stated. There was actually no tub and the shower was the size of one on a cruise ship.
While there was an adequate sized closet, there were no drawers, so underwear, socks, etc. would need to be placed on the closet floor or on a very high shelf which the owner scrambled to clear for us. The kitchen was as described; however, the owner had not cleared even one shelf of the refrigerator for our use, even though we were renting for 30 days. The site states “ comfy seating for 6 people”. This implied the kitchen was for our use, which would have been almost impossible.
We elected to not even stay one night, mainly due to the state of the bathroom and lack of privacy. We asked for a refund, but the owner refused to consider it even though we lost 29 nights and she has already re-listed it during the time we would have been there.
The owner seemed inexperienced. Otherwise, she would have stated more clearly the unsuitability for an extended stay and not misrepresented the bathroom.
Bottom line, if you are looking for an inexpensive rental for a few nights and do not care about privacy or the type of bathroom, this might work for you. Do be aware the bathroom pictured on the site is NOT the one for guests and we did not even see that one.
I think the great reviews my happy guests have written should be answer enough. I have had guests stay here for over a month without any issues. You arrived with 4 suitcases which clearly a double wardrobe is not going to accommodate. I offered to put your cases in my loft which I did after you had unpacked. I also cleared an extra cupboard above the doubke wardrobe for you and provided you with over 25 wooden hangers. There are two bathrooms one that is shown in the listing which is 2 flights down from the bedroom and a second smaller bathroom which is directly next to the bedroom and which you said would be fine. I asked you if you would like extra space over and above the mirrored cupboard in the bathroom and offered to clear some additional drawers to which you replied ‘no it’s fine.’ I showed you the lounge and the eat-in kitchen where I explained that I will lay out the breakfast for you in the morning asked you if you prefer tea or coffee in the morning and you then asked me if you could have some space in the fridge and I said that ofcourse I would clear a shelf for you as I do for all the guests that request it. ‘There is comfortable seating for six ‘which does not in anyway indicate you would have sole use of the kitchen. This is VRBO where guests stay in people’s homes. I don’t think you’ll find an entire 3 floor Georgian house for your own sole use at £60 per night. The listing is clearly for a room and use of the other facilities I offer. After I had put your cases in my loft and cleared an additional cupboard you went out for a walk came back clearly having had a few drinks and informed me that you are leaving, having checked in 3 hours previously and asked for me to get your cases back down from the loft and then asked for a refund. VRBO has a strict cancellation policy. There are no refunds post check- in. I have never had a single complaint from any of my guests - as stated before I have had nothing but very positive reviews both about my home and for me as a host. I am not sure what your expectations were having cited lack of privacy- I live here and the listing if for my guest room and bathroom and use of the lounge and kitchen which is clearly outlined in the listing details and which many listings do not offer. I will just add that shouting and swearing at each other in my hallway while you were waiting for a taxi and causing a disturbance was not how I would have expected guests, particularly a retired couple to behave.
Beautiful and relaxing!
Grace is wonderful and provided the best tips for local attractions and restaurants. The neighborhood of Hampstead is beautiful and nice to retreat to after a busy day of seeing the sights.
Alexis was the perfect guest. It was a pleasure to host her and hear about her daily explorations of London! She was a considerate and respectful guest and is welcome to stay here again anytime.
4 night stay at high street heaven
Booked this double room last minute. Communication by email, text and through homeaway was quick. Our 4-night stay was pleasant and comfortable. The room and bathroom was clean and spotless - no complaints! The apartment is located 2 minutes away from the underground station and high street. Our host, Grace, went out her way to prepare us a nice light breakfast - truly appreciated. Plus, she provided us with helpful information on the best cafes, pubs, restaurants and other places of interest to go to. Thank you again! -C&C
Thank you for the great review- it was a pleasure to host you both. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you here again if you travel to London again. Grace.
Beautiful home in an idyllic neighborhood
Grace is a gracious host who had helpful tips places to go to. Breakfast in the sunny kitchen was excellent with fresh fruit, muesli, juice and coffee or tea.
Small room with double bed, cupboard facing a busy street, so sleeping with an open window is a little noisy. A small shower bath next door for exclusiv use and the option use a larger one downstairs.
Overall we had a great time - it felt like staying with a friend.
Thank you for your great review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay here. All the windows are double glazed to ensure a tranquil stay but obviously opening both windows will allow some noise in, given the central location. It was a pleasure hosting you both and I am delighted you felt so at home here.
Beautiful stylish home, conveniently located
We had a great stay in the heart of gorgeous Hampstead village! Underground station close-by. Within 15 min we were right in the city. The heath (area of outstanding natural beauty) is also nearby. The rooms are light, pure and beautifully arranged. English scones for breakfast were delicious and Grace is a wonderful host: friendly, discrete and helpful. Thank you very much!
Thank you so much for your great review! It was an absolute pleasure to host you both here- you were delightful company.
