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.
It was a wonderful stay at pilar house.... the room was very tidy and well organized... pilar was very friendly, cooperative and supportive...

Such a charming place to stay , close to willesden junction to go to london !
We had a great time with the other hosts !
I recommend it !!!!
It was a great experience and the apartment was good . And her son is very respectfully and helpfully guy .
Pilar was an amazing host, very flexible which is absolutely a non-plus-ultra. She took care of everything around the flat, I would highly recommend her as host and her room to everybody. The pictures from the room on Wimdu are showing the reality, we get exactly what we expected. Very calmy neighborhood, lovely place, London style, away from the city centre's too much noise. We loved it sooo much!
I stayed for a longer period (6 weeks) with Pilar and Marcello. It was a great experience. I really felt home. Pilar is a wonderfull host! The rooms are spacious, clean, new and very modern. Public tranport (from there it only takes 10 minutes to Oxford Circus), shops and restaurants are very close by. You wil have everything you need for a wonderfull stay in London!!
We stayed for 2 weeks with my 20-month-old boy. Pilar and her son were really nice and kind all the time. My son likes them very much!! He misses them with his first jet lag now. And another guest families were also really friendly! We had a nice time with them. It took 20 min to tube st. with pushchair. So I sometimes took the bus to central. It was convenient for me. And easy to find nice supermarkets and many kinds of shops. Thank you for your kindness and lots of toys & lovely picture books!
It was a great 9-day journey in London started from Pilar's warm hospitality. The place is just like what is showed in the pictures, clean, modern, comfortable, and cozy. Pilar provided me useful information and has been there for me just a phone call away when I needed help. I like Pilar and her son and greatly appreciate them respect guest's privacy and at the same time be naturally kind and friendly.
Unfortunately we didn' t have much time to talk but staying at Pilars was very nice and she was very friendly. Would always go back there again. Our room was nice and big exactly like on the pictures. Everything was nice and tidy. It takes about half an hour to get to the central of London but we expected that and the connections are really good and there is a 24 hour bus service. Thank you so much for having us!
Ik heb enorm genoten van mijn verblijf bij Pilar en Marcelo.
Bij andere reacties lees ik negatieve dingen over de buurt, maar heb het niet als negatief ervaren. Tuurlijk Is het niet de beste buurt in Londen, maar die huizen zo maken het Londen voor mij. En als dame savonds laat daar alleen over straat lopen vond ik ook geen probleem. Voelde me niet bedreigd of in gevaar.
De afstand tot het metrostation van Harlesden Is maar 10 minuten en makkelijk te vinden. Praktisch alleen maar recht door.
Over de accomodatie niks te klagen. Het bed lag echt super lekker en heb in tijden niet zo fijn geslapen.
Badkamer was wat klein maar valt prima in te bewegen. En die heerlijke douche was ook zeker niet verkeerd!
Prachtige keuken en de slaapkamer ook.
Ondanks dat ik Pilar en Marcello maar heel kort heb gezien en gesproken omdat ik tot savonds laat op stap was, komen ze over als twee lieve mensen.
Ben zeker van plan nog een keer terug te komen hier!
