We are Belgians. We moved to London in 2010. Two of our 4 kids were born here. Our kids attend local schools. I am working as university teacher and my husband as fund manager. We like London very much: its cultural and social life, its kids-friendly atmosphere. We also like w-e getaways in the countryside to visit castles and gardens.
Gaetane purchased this House in 2016
Why Gaetane chose London Borough of Ealing
We moved to our neighbourhood after having lived 6 years in Hammersmith. We have many friends in Chiswick, people who, like us, are looking for better quality of life in London. We feel that Chiswick has a lot to offer: nice shops, nice restaurants, nice parks, trees everywhere and vicinity of main highways to get out of London easily. We cycle or walk everywhere (to restaurants, cinema, playgrounds, tennis courts, schools etc). We barely use our car. We like our house very much as it is straightforward and charming at the same time (a typical so-called Dutch house) and full of light/bright. It is a very cosy and comfortable house, where you can have your own privacy as it is spread on many levels and the rooms are spacious. The kitchen and its dining room is the place where we stand the most: full of light with lovely colours. We like our terrace and garden as well and the kids feel cosy in their rooms.
What makes this House unique
Quiet and safe neighbourhood just 30' away from Centre London by tube. Recently refurbished to the highest standards with beautiful materials and fabrics. A house where you are happy to come back at night. Children friendly as we have 4 children ourselves from 4 to 11 years old.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellent stay in London!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gaetene's place. The home itself is beautifully designed, has lots of room and bright lights - something we definitely appreciated during our stay because it was mostly rainy. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and have all the amenities you would need. We had 11 people in our party, including 4 children and we fit in very comfortably. The location is great - Sainsbury (grocery) is walking distance, a handful of good restaurants are right around the corner and the underground station, Chiswick Park, is less than 5 minutes away. We used the underground station to go everywhere - super convenient and quick. Gaetene was excellent in her communication with us before and after the trip. This house is fantastic for families wanting to stay in London and in a great neighborhood.
Excellent location for our family summer vacation in London
The location is truly excellent. The tube station being a couple of minutes walk was great and provided easy access to both central London and to Heathrow Airport (we flew in from the US).
Having a large grocery store right next to the station was also very convenient.
The nearby park was very good with lots of play equipment that the children loved.
We didn't really need a car for most of our vacation, but when we decided to head out west for a day trip, there was a rental car company at the end of the street.
There were lots of great dining options on Chiswick High Road within 10 minutes walking distance.
The house itself was very nice and accommodated our group of 6 adults and 3 children. The owner made herself available throughout the stay.
Everything was as described (though we only had access to 4 out of 6 bedrooms - this was detailed in the contract).
We really enjoyed our visit and would recommend this location for a family looking for a large home in London.
Wonderful location and convenience to all amenities
The house was spacious, very comfortable beds with great terrace and garden.
Very good location and transport links; 2 minutes walk will get you to the nearest tube station which the District and Piccadilly line runs through which get you into Central London with ease. Not far from the tube station there is a big supermarket and if something is not sold there; Chiswick High street is just behind it. There is an Overground station approximately 5 to 10 minutes walk; should there be any issues with the District or Piccadilly line. A lesser mention if you want a day out and weather permitted Kew Garden is not far via the Overground. If you were to head outside of London by car you're not far from the nearest M4 junction.
The host is very nice and tried to accommodate all our needs and most importantly thank you for having accepted to host 8 adults!
Wonderful home in an excellent location!
The home was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 7 children. The easy access to the tube line and grocery store were ideal for our stay in London. We loved the modern conveniences of the home and the town of Chiswick was lovely.
Great Christmas time !
Really nice house. Perfect location. Very good communication with the landlord. No any problem during our stay. Defenitly suggested for family holidays!
