“You should stay at Matina's house if you love cats and have teens/kids. The house is in a fabulous location, a quick walk to the Piccadilly line (which makes for an easy journey to/from Heathrow and into central London). It is a spacious house with great facilities and comfortable beds. Matina is a fantastic host and made sure that she left detailed instructions on everything to do with the house and the local area. We really appreciated the goody boxes she left for us! They have two gorgeous cats that love a snuggle and are delight to look after. We hope we will be able to swap with Matina again in the future as we felt very relaxed staying in her lovely home. We all extend our thanks to her and her family for approving our stay request.”
“We had great stay in this stylist, comfortable, spacious home in a great location, convenient to central London and the local tube station and with a grocery shop one minute walk away! Matina was easy to communicate with and made us feel so at home with a lovely welcome pack, sweeties and drawing for our little boy. Her attention to detail is second to none. Matina was also easy to contact during our stay too. The kitchen and living room are ultra modern and a pleasure to cook and sit in. Spotty and Chase made us feel at home and our son loved these very friendly and well behaved cats. The garden is large with a trampoline and the playroom stuffed full of toys and games. The bedrooms and beds are super comfortable and the bathroom stunning. We had a great time in Matina's home and would love to go back. If you are fortunate enough stay in this stunning home I'm sure you'll love it as much as we did! Thank you Matina and Ross! ”
“We have just spent the most fantastic week in Matina and Ross's lovely home in West London. The house is situated less than a 3 minute walk from Boston Manor tube station which means that we had direct access to the Picadilly line and all of London's top attractions were in easy reach. Westfield shopping centre is very close by and the house itself is well served with shops and cafes. Their house is very spacious and there was a lovely large garden with a big trampoline which my kids loved. Matina left us with a generous welcome pack,as well as beautifully presented towels and toiletries with a little gift on each bed. The house was immaculate and spotlessly clean and the kitchen was so well equipped and labelled for us we immediately felt at home. We had agreed to care for Chase and Spotty the house cats (we are cat people!) and they were no trouble at all and very very affectionate. Matina is extremely friendly and easy to communicate with and the whole experience was a real pleasure. Matina and her family swapped with us and stayed in our place in Spain and left it absolutely immaculate. They were a pleasure to host and a pleasure to deal with all round! ”
“We had the most amazing week staying in Matina and Ross's home, such a fantastic welcome with an unexpected basket of goodies, friendly helpful neighbours and Chase, the most adorable kitten. Our twins thought he was the best thing in UK (even more than red double decker buses!!) The house was so warm and spacious yet cosy and convenient too. Such a great location for getting into London - it really is just a few minutes walk to the tube station even with 2 3 year olds in tow. It was also great to feel like you were away from the hustle and bustle of the city and could get to Kew gardens, the RAF Museum, nearby canals and other great outdoor places so easily. We had hired a car as this was the 2nd swap of our Christmas/New Year break but you could easily do a house swap here and use public transport to get around. The nearby local small supermarket was very handy and the staff recognised us after just one visit, lovely to feel like a local while away from home! The pictures on the Love Home Swap site do not do this home justice as it is beautifully decorated and so comfortable, the playroom and family bathroom with spa bath were highlights for our young twins. We would love to visit again and enjoy the garden and trampoline a bit more than the wet weather allowed us this time (but the indoor drying area was a great help!) and to try out more of the local recommended restaurants which all sounded fantastic. We would highly recommend a stay here for anyone who would like a relaxed stylish home to use as a base for exploring London and the many attractions around and outside the city. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and making our trip so relaxing and memorable. ”
“WHAT A WONDERFUL SWAP!!!! We had a wonderful swap with Matina and Ross. They live in a beautiful and big house with a lovely garden in London, very close to the tube station, and well located to reach Central London (only about 20mn with the Picadilly Line). The house is georgous, clean, with high level of comfort - big beds and rooms, luxury bathrooms and kitchen... - ... and has plenty of space to play for children. The area is really safe and there are local shops near the house. The communication with Matina before and during the exchange was really great and warm. They even offer us a welcome basket with food to start our swap. And when we came back, our house was really clean. In summary, we higly recommend to exchange with Matina's family, it was one of our best swap (and we did a lot)!”
“We stayed at Matina and Ross's place in July 2015. When we arrived all were surprises, first the house was even more beautiful that it seemed at the photos we watched before going, second they prepared us a big basket with handmade cakes, chocolates, cheese, champagne... and a present for the children, third they also prepared us a complete guide of the area and moreover there was a friend of them waiting for us who showed us the house. The house is very modern and comfortable. They have the best multi-media facilities (play-station, wifi, premium tv streaming...). The kitchen is like the ones you can see at magazines and we enjoyed also their jacuzzi. The location is quiet and with all kind of services, there is a supermarket 1 minute by foot and the tube is only 4 minutes by foot from the house, in 20 minutes you are in central London!!! Our neighbours told us that they were really nice. They took beautiful care of our home and we returned to a spotless house which made it so easy. We'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending these guys as great swappers. We also swapped cars, and the car was returned with a full tank and in perfect condition. Wonderful experience!!!!!”
