ABOUT THE LISTING

Ideal if you need space for a couple of nights, this is a double futon in the living room of our family home. It sleeps two.

This is not a private space with kitchen attached, but just sleeping space! We need some time of our own during the day from around 11am to 4pm because our kids do their work in here (which includes LOUD drumming practice!). You can of course come in and out at any timeduring the day. You have privacy between 11:00 pm and 07:30 am.

Great access to Central London sights because we are so close to the Underground Station. The space is in our living/dining area and attached to our kitchen so it is only private between 23:00 and 07:30.

The living room is smaller than it looks in the above picture (4.5 x 3.8 m), because there is now a drum set in the room, but feels big because it is attached to the bright kitchen. It has great ambience and our guests have spent many happy hours in this space with us.

Ideal if what you want is a safe base in London and a family atmosphere to come home to. Meals are NOT included but we will be glad to talk about how sharing can work.

We only host here if we are fully comfortable with you (so a good request and adequate description on your profile helps).

The living room has light coming in from 05:00 in summer; please remind us to set-up a curtain if you expect that this will bother you.

---What to expect---
You will be staying in a lived in family home -- this is reflected in the price. You have to be realistic with your expectations and not expect anything near pristine. We keep it clean, we love having people stay and we are interested in getting to know you and have you experience what it's like to be with a family.

None of the bedroom doors has a lock so if this is a concern for you please take your valuables when you go out. We cannot take responsibility for them.

You have use of our garden and wireless broadband, and free parking spaces are available within an easy walk.
• We are quite easy going but please also refer to the House Rules.
• Smoking is permitted in the garden.
• Fresh towels and bedlinen are provided though they will not be ironed.
• Self-service breakfast. Bread, coffee/tea is always available. You need to prepare it yourself. Please clear away your things. Please help yourself to hot drinks at any time during the day.
• If joining us for meals that you haven't arranged in advance, please show your own capacity to share;-) seems obvious? Yup, the shops are 2 mins away. Please ask so we can tell you whether or not we are available at mealtimes on the day you would like to stay in.

---Futon in Family Home----
• The Futon is in our living room and we'll be using the space throughout the day. We do expect that you go out most days, even for a few hours. This gives us all a break.
• We will respect your privacy between 11pm and 8.30 in the morning (unless we are awake playing board games and chatting with you).

----General----
This is a family home and we ask you to treat it gently and be considerate to us, as we will be to you.

• Who else will be in the house? You will be sharing the house with us (4 people) and any guests who have book our other listings. (Bedroom maximum 3 people, living room futon maximum 2 people)

• Tidying Up-We expect our guests to keep their room or sleeping area reasonably tidy. This also means clearing up plates after you have served yourself breakfast.

* Waiver of Liability-We ask our guests to accept responsibility for their own safety throughout their time with us. This is mainly due but not limited to to the fact that we have access to a backyard with uneven ground and a trampoline.

Staying at Zaza and Kevin was our favourite and best experience so far. It was like having a home away from home. They have great house which is so close to the tube that gets you wherever you want to go pretty quickly, markets are also very close, but most importantly is their family and kindness; they were ready to give you advice and help you any time. Felt so safe and happy there :) Thank you for everything and hope to see you soon. Kristina and Petra

Zaza is really really kind and welcoming! We was 3 people and they provided us space in the living room with large bed and sofa, with our privacy and space! We felt at home. Quiet area and very close to the tube station with direct service to central London!

Me and my friend enjoyed 3 nights in mid July and we both loved where we stayed in. Zaza and Kevin welcomed us in a way we did not expect and made even breakfast for us. They were really helpful to give you guidance on how to explore the city as well. Neigborhood was very quiet and peaceful as we always came home very late at night. Transportation was easy to use as it was 2 min walk from the underground station. If to visit London again, it is the place i would stay again.

Thank you for staying with us and for your responsive communication throughout. It was easy and pleasant to host you both and we were lucky to be free that morning to spend some time with you. Welcome back anytime. All good wishes.

Thank to Kevin, Zaza and their family, we had such a good time in London. They are very open-minded people, attentive, and there if you need any piece of advice. Their house is so close to the tube station that you can't get lost. We definitively recommand this family if you are looking for a cosy place to stay, and nice people to talk with. Karine & Klaudia.

Kevin, Zaza, and their daughters are wonderful hosts and I recommend them to anyone! They are super informative and are eager to help. Plus the location is perfect, the tube is an extremely short walk away! I previously stayed in their private room prior to booking on the futon. The futon was just as described, although I did get the luxury of the room to myself until about 9AM everyday which was nice! It's the perfect base for sleeping if you're going to be out and about for the day, I had classes so it worked out perfect for me.

Roz, Kevin, Aisha and Jamila are a wonderful, friendly, creative, intelligent family and I had a great time staying with them. It was lovely to find such warm people to spend time with in the middle of all the stress and hassle of moving house :) I would definitely recommend them - and did I mention that Roz' cooking is absolutely divine? Definitely a great place to stay.

Nutzerprofil von Zaza & Kevin

We are a family of four and have been living in London for the last 20 years. We are committed to learning, raising ourselves, and realising the inter-connectedness of being in this wonderful planet.

The idea of making connections and friendships with people from other parts of the world appeals to us and we have made many friends from around the world through hosting.

We sometimes take on Meet and Greet work for other hosts, help coordinate their guests, provide support and help hosts make the most of their listings; when asked we also help other hosts become better hosts. Zaza does a specialised check-in service for a handful of hosts that require a trusted and reliable person to be there for their guests.

We love blue skies, camping, beaches, making art, reading and travelling. We love cooking, making bread, learning to cook new things from our guests, and teaching them too.

We both work from home so we're around most of the day.
