PERKS FOR THE PARENTS
Our family home has a great kitchen area with a long breakfast bar & 6 high-stools (great to feed everyone at once).
Two separate bathrooms were recently re-designed with a contemporary finish - the master bathroom has tadelakt walls and a large bath tub and Italian shower. The loft conversion has a large double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a large glass window with view of London.
The house is walking distance from cute cafés and restaurants and you will find plenty more cafés, shops and restaurants within Westfields Shopping Mall 10 minutes walk from our home.
WHY KIDS LOVE IT
This is an easy place to stay with small children. The house has a nice back garden and is close to central London attractions.
We have a 10-year old daughter and plenty of toys and books are available for older kids. Children can go to the kids movie on Saturday or Sunday morning in Westfield.
There are tennis courts and playgrounds (Brook Green or Ravenscourt Park) within walking distance.
However, since our "baby paraphernalia days" are well behind, beside a crib and a few plastic plates & cutlery in the kitchen, we don't have any baby equipments (i.e. there is no safety gate for infants) so bear this mind if you are travelling with babies.

We are a family of three and have been calling London our home for the past twenty years but this year we are sharing our lives between London and the South West of France where we have our holiday home (also on Airbnb). Steve is from New-Zealand (north island) and I'm French (from the Bay of Arcachon).
Our daughter Mila Sienna is 13 years and bilingual. She took her first trip to New-Zealand when she was 6 months old and has now visited more countries than her age.
In France, we have an Australian Shepherd, a cute little bunny: Lou and now 8 little chicks!
Steve works in finance and I'm the Founder of online concept store BODIE and FOU which I ran for 10 years and sold in January 2016 to focus on my new career as a Fashion and Portrait Photographer. I'm also an Interior Stylist & Blogger.
Our home in London (before the renovations) got featured in Elle Decoration, The Telegraph, Inside Out, House & Garden and many more and we are currently converting our tree house into a cool home office/hut.
