My property is in NW10, Willesden Junction. It is an area very close to Wembley, Portobello Market and Queens Park, Westfield Shopping Centre and the Central Middlessex Hospital ( buses (phone number hidden) and 226).
Transport facilities are very good, two underground stations ( Zone 2), Bakerloo Line which takes about 25 minutes to Oxford St or Piccadilly Circus. The overground will take you all over North London or to the South with a final destination in Clapham Junction. There are also a number of buses to take you to central London, number 18 to Euston, 266 to Hammersmith or to Golders Green. For more information look into (website hidden) where you can get all the information regarding public transport.
If you like to exercise, Roundwood Park is just a 5 minute walk where you can exercise in a very relaxed setting but if you are more into swimming or weight training, Willesden Sports Centre is a 12 minute walk. The sport centre is very good and you can pay by the day, so you could incorporate training in your holidays or your short stay. For more information about the centre please have a look at their web page: (website hidden) There is also a Bikram yoga centre about 15 minutes bus ride from the flat: (website hidden) If you are interested in mediation and more alternative ways of life, the Brahma Kumaris centre is a 15 minute walk from the flat, more info in : (website hidden)
The area has quite a few good affordable restaurants ranging from Spanish, Caribbean, Brazilian and Iranian as well as a few good pubs on the Harrow Road such as the trendy Paradise or William the IV.
The flat was completely refurbished in 2009 with all modern facilities. There are two bedrooms, one occupied by me and a double room which is the room offered to rent. You will have access to quite large family kitchen and if If you are lucky enough to have good weather, a lot of my guests, have breakfast in the garden. We get the sun all day and it is very pleasant in the morning to sit and start the day in a peaceful manner.
I am flexible in terms of checking in and out and you will have your own keys. If you are a driver I have a guest parking permit so there is no problem for you to bring your car.
I love London and have quite a busy social life, so I can also give you information about this wonderful city in terms of what is going on for people who want to feel the real London and not just the tourist visits and if you are a dancer... that is my passion, so you will have all that information at your hands. I speak English, Spanish, French some Portuguese, some Italian , and my son is fluent in French so we can answer questions in a few languages and help you if you need further information about the area.
If you are a driver, I can book parking on the street for your stay. I provide this service free.
I interact with my guests as much as I can. If I am home and I am cooking I love to invite the guests to share the meal with my son and myself. I am very proud to say that some of my friends are from Wimdu that came as guests and we become friends.
I love interacting with people and any information you need I would be glad to spend time with you and explain. I love London and everything that it is offered, therefore I have good knowledge of how to get the most out of this wonderful city.
I love the diversity of this neighbourhood, different cultures and sometimes the crazy ambience that the area provides.If you are a cook, the area is like Aladin's Cave. You can find meats from Brazil in the local Brazilian's butchers. All type of Caribbean food at Blue Mountain ( a shops that caters for the Caribbean community).
There is also a 24 hour supermarket that offers Turkish food, olive bar, polish deli counter and freshly baked bread.
There is also some good restaurants in the area such as Iranian food, Spanish, Italian and Brazilian.I love the fact that you don't have to leave the area in order to meet all these different cultures.
There are also a couple of Brazilian/ Portuguese clubs with one of them offering Kizomba classes.
The flat is located 12 minutes walk from Willesden Junction. The Bakerloo line will take you to central London in 25 minutes, Picadilly Circus and the overground can take you to the North of London in very short space of time as well as to the South of London ( Clapham Junction).
The M1 is 10 minutes drive from the flat and the North Circular is also very close. The M40 is about 15 minutes drive.

Reviews of this property
Me and my friend had best time in London at this trip! On the first day we said it is nice to stay in suburb. You see the everyday life and it is just amazing. Room was just on point and host was also amazing. Definitely would go to stay Pilar again. Two stundent girls just says yes to room, yes to public transport and yes to London!
Very friendly and welcoming both the house and Pilar and Marcelo.
It was our first experience in this type of accommodation and were very pleased.
Muy agradable y acogedora tanto la casa como Pilar y Marcelo.
Fue nuestra primera experiencia en este tipo de alojamientos y quedamos muy satisfechos.
Our stay with Pilar ..... basically were in our house, because that's how we feel, certainly, when we return to London because we return, will be home to Pilar and Marcelo. Great time, we went with our son and did not want to go back, I grew fond of Marcelo, a charming person, always willing to have a conversation with us, we both got many useful tips about the city. The room is spacious, bed very comfortable and there is also a large very comfortable sofa. The house is cituada one 15-minute walk from the station of undreground and overgraund or you can catch a bus also takes you to the station at 4 min of the house, nosotro preferred to walk because if you're walking past the shops and always We needed something to buy and there are no super this very well priced, always better to buy in the center. The house is in Willesden Junction and is right on the border of zone 2 and this either when buying transport cards. The neighborhood is very quiet. Definitely highly it recommended because you feel at home. Pilar and Marcelo thank you very much for giving us not only your home, SL does not heat your house. We hope to see you soon and if you pass by Tenerife and you have our phone. Oh and thank you very much Marcelo for the favor of the last time. ;)
Nuestra estancia con Pilar..... basicamente estabamos en nuestra casa, porque asi fue como nos sentimos, sin duda, cuando volvamos a Londres, porque pensamos volver, sera a casa de Pilar y Marcelo. Lo pasamos genial, fuimos con nuestro hijo y no se queria volver, se encariño de Marcelo, que es un encanto de persona, siempre dispuesto a mantener una conversacion con nosotros, los dos nos dieron muchos consejos muy utiles sobre la ciudad. La habitacion es espaciosa, la cama muy comoda y hay un sofa grande tambien muy comodo. La casa esta cituada a uno 15 minutos a pie de la estacion del undreground y overgraund o puedes coger un bus que tambien te lleva a la estacion a 4 min de la casa, nosotro preferiamos ir caminando porque si vas caminando pasas por los comercios y siempre hacia falta algo que comprar y por alli hay un super que esta muy bien de precio, siempre mejor que comprar en el centro. La casa esta en Willesden Junction y esta justo en el limite de la zona 2 y esta bien a la hora de comprar las tarjetas de transporte. El barrio es muy tranquilo. Sin duda es muy recomendable porque te sentiras como en casa. Muchas gracias Pilar y Marcelo por ofrecernos, no solo vuestra casa, slno el calor de vuestra casa. Esperamos verles pronto y si os pasais por Tenerife ya teneis nuestro telefono. Ahh y muchas gracias Marcelo por el favor del ultimo momento. ;)
We spent 4 wonderful nights in the room of Pilar. The fact that it is exentré (20 minutes by metro) allows you to take a subscription (required to visit London) and allows us to spend peaceful nights in the suburbs of London. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and you feel at home in this room very similar to the picture!
Nous avons passé 4 superbes nuits dans la chambre de Pilar. Le fait que ce soit exentré (20 minutes de métro) permet de prendre un abonnement (nécessaire pour visiter londres) et nous permet de passer des nuits paisibles dans la banlieu de Londres. C'était un séjour vraiment agréable et on se sent chez soi dans cette chambre très ressemblante à la photo!
We have been 4 nights in the house of Pilar and has been a very positive experience, excellent Marcelo dealing with a very quiet area to live and a very different neighborhood knew that London was the center, but well connected.
Overall excellent !!!
Hemos estado 4 Noches en la casa de Pilar y ha sido una experiencia muy positiva, el trato con Marcelo excelente una zona muy tranquila para vivir y un barrio muy diferente al Londres que conocía que era el centro, aunque muy bien comunicado.
En general excelente!!!
It is in a very unattractive neighborhood located .... 15min walk from the subway and it's a little 20min by subway to London.
The Court simply, there is a carpet that is not really clean and the fireplace is not working.
The bathroom is very small and the toilet is there in the morning so you must already wait to go to the toilet ...
at night there is too much noise from the upstairs neighbors.
Pilar and friendly lady but we have not really seen a lot and the son not!, Really neat they do not .... the dishes will remain untouched, the wet laundry in the kitchen ......
Het is in een zeer onaantrekkelijke buurt gelegen....15min te voet van de metro en dan is het een klein 20min met de metro tot in Londen.
De Kamer is gewoon,er ligt een tapijt dat niet echt proper is en de openhaard werkt niet.
De badkamer is zeer klein en het toilet bevindt zich daar waardoor je s'morgens al eens moet wachten om naar het toilet te kunnen gaan...
s'nachts is er ook veel lawaai van de boven buren.
Pilar is en vriendelijke dame maar wij hebben ze niet echt veel gezien en de zoon ook niet!,echt ordelijk is ze niet....de afwas blijft gewoon staan,de natte was staat in de keuken......
Vital and friendly staff to help you in any questions you may have and make you feel comfortable at home without being all over you. Room good and nice bed.
Personal vital y amable que te ayuda en las dudas que puedas tener y en hacerte sentir confortable en su casa sin estar encima tuya. La habitación bien y la cama agradable.
The area was a little further away from the metro stops, so we had to walk for half an hour every day ... would be better just to buy one-day tickets. The room was on the first day very cold and we have no heating or furnace anbekommen. Pilar was rarely there, so we could not just ask. The bathroom had a great big shower, the kitchen, we make only the tea used, since we were to go in the evening. The walls are very thin and you can hear immediately if someone goes in and out.
For a weekend it was okay for a long time should be with the staff have more contact.
Die Gegend war etwas weiter von den U-Bahnhaltestellen entfernt, sodass wir jeden Tag eine halbe Stunde laufen mussten...wäre besser sich direkt Tagestickets zu kaufen. Das Zimmer war am ersten Tag sehr kalt und wir haben weder Heizung noch Ofen anbekommen. Pilar war selten da, deshalb konnten wir nicht so einfach nachfragen. Das Badezimmer hatte eine tolle große Dusche, die Küche haben wir nur zum Tee machen benutzt, da wir bis Abends unterwegs waren. Die Wände sind sehr dünn und man hört sofort wenn jemand rein und raus geht.
Für ein Wochenende war es okay, für längere Zeit sollte man mit dem Gastgeber mehr Kontakt haben.
THE ROOM IS OK, THE AREA VERY BAD, IS SCARY TO GO OUTSIDE, PILAR AT FIRST NICE BUT A LITTLE CONCERNING MAYBE INFLUENCED BY THE SURROUNDINGS
The room and the apartment are well maintained, only the residential area is a bit dirty. Pilar was a gracious host and I would recommend them anytime.
Das Zimmer und die Wohnung sind sehr gepflegt, einzig die Wohngegend ist etwas dreckig. Pilar war eine nette Gastgeberin und ich würde sie jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
