Just brilliant. Nice area, lovely flat, amazing room. Best hosts we could have imagined. They were extremely nice, friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately we didn't have much time to get to know them better but we'll definitely be back. They even trusted us with their flat whilst they were on holiday. We had a great time and we can highly recommend everyone to book a stay here!
Bernard and Michael are just the best! They are very helpful, very charming, the flat is just amazing and there company is the best you could have! They help us from the first moment in everything we could need, they made us feel home in their home! We can't wait to see them again! Thank you so much for making our holiday's so wonderful! Love from Spain xxx
I stayed with my mother in London for 4 days. Bernard and Michael helped us everytime and for everything. They also invited us to a friends birthdayparty. Was so amazing, so wonderful people. A very nice arranged apartment with very calm neighbourhood. Breakfast was great, locaded very close to the city with subway stadion nearby. Can recomand it very very much.
Dear Bernard & Michael, thank you for a great time in London. Thanks to your beautiful apartment and the great tips, we saw in 3 days so much of London! It corresponds to all the description, we have been more than satisfied! Greetings from Germany from Sarah & Christoph :)
Lieber Bernard & Michael, vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit in London. Dank eurer schönen Wohnung und den tollen Tipps, haben wir in 3 Tagen so viel von London gesehen! Es entspricht alles der Beschreibung, wir sind mehr als zufrieden gewesen! Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland von Sarah & Christoph :)
Two days after our stay with Bernard and Michael, our thoughts are very settled back to this very nice and very hospitable hosts. You hope beforehand that staying with strangers will go home well, but their friendly attitude was above expectations. They showed themselves interested and involved with us and offered all help to make our stay in London for a fantastic holiday. It is nice that they do that if local residents of this metropolis also known by the less obvious activities and events. The stay in their home felt day after day more and more like coming home. On a subsequent visit to London, we will definitely go to Bernard and Michael. A top stay !!!
Twee dagen na ons verblijf bij Bernard en Michael gaan onze gedachten nog heel geregeld terug naar deze bijzonder aardige en zeer gastvrije hosts. Je hoopt op voorhand dat het verblijf bij vreemden thuis goed zal verlopen, maar hun vriendelijke houding was boven verwachting. Ze toonden zich geïnteresseerd en betrokken bij ons en boden alle hulp aan om ons verblijf in Londen tot een fantastische vakantie te maken. Het leuke is dat zij dat doen als locale bewoners van deze wereldstad die ook bekend zijn met de minder voor de hand liggende activiteiten en evenementen. Het verblijf in hun woning voelde dag na dag steeds meer als thuiskomen. Bij een volgend bezoek aan Londen zullen we zeker naar Bernard en Michael teruggaan. Een top verblijf!!!
Super nice hosts who every wish from our eyes and gave us valuable tips daily for our itinerary. We felt comfortable and recommend a stay in the cozy rooms with private bathrooms with pleasure.
Super nette Gastgeber, die uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen haben und uns täglich wertvolle Tipps für unsere Tagesplanung gaben. Wir fühlten uns wohl und empfehlen einen Aufenthalt in dem gemütlichen Zimmer mit eigenem Bad gern weiter.
Love Wimdu team
not only that we felt incredibly at our hosts during Auftenthaltes, no, it's already created beforehand a kind of friendship. We can 100% recommend to our friends both hosts and their beautiful apartment. We have at all times felt comfortable and I'm still happy to have found this gem from your portal.
Patrick & Claudia Mayer
nicht nur, dass wir uns bei unseren Gastgebern während des Auftenthaltes unglaublich wohl gefühlt haben, nein, es ist schon im Vorfeld eine Art Freundschaft entstanden. Beide Gastgeber und auch ihre wunderschöne Wohnung können wir zu 100 % an unsere Freunde weiter empfehlen. Wir haben uns zu jedem Zeitpunkt wohl gefühlt und ich bin jetzt noch glücklich, dieses Juwel aus Ihrem Portal gefunden zu haben.

We (1 adult, 2 kids) stayed in the appartment for a whole week. We liked the appartment, which was nicely done up and very clean, the environment with the Regent's canal before the house, the Mile End Park, which the children liked as playground and the colourful environment. As described, the central areas in London are easy to reach.
Bernard an Michael were very friendly and considerate hosts, so we felt welcome in the appartment. We liked the breakfast, which we didn't have to look for. Bernard took time every day to make propositions and plans for our activities in detail. We only constraint was, that we were three in the sleeping room with a matress on the floor that meant, that due to lack of space you couldn't open the wardrobe without moving the matress away.
We enjoyed our stay at Bernard's flat very much. It was really "home away from home". Bernard and Michael made us feel very welcome and are wonderful hosts. Bernard's title "superhost" is very well earned!
The room is lovely, with a beautiful view at the canal.
It was a special weekend for my niece and me and we hope to go back soon!
My friend and I have had a wonderful week in London. Bernard and Michael were warm, helpful and altogether very pleasant to live with. We had experiences in London, we would not have had without Bernards help. We he recommend them warmly.

Min veninde og jeg har haft en dejlig uge i London. Bernard og Michael var varme, hjælpsomme og helt igennem utrolig behagelige at bo hos. Vi havde oplevelser i London, vi ikke ville have haft uden Bernards hjælp. Vi han anbefale dem på det varmeste.
