The location was extremely convenient, near the tube and many restaurants. It's set on a quiet street with your own entrance, which makes coming and going very convenient. Every day Harley and Meena send you on your way with an amazing breakfast. All your questions are answered and they give your other options as well. We had them arrange a pick-up car for us at Heathrow which dropped us off right at their doorstep. We were able to leave our luggage that first morning and then went off to explore London while our rooms were readied. On our last day, Meena prepared an ostrich egg breakfast (which we had purchased at the Borough Market--another great suggestion by them). Harley then arranged for a taxi to take us to King's Cross train station.

We travel a lot with our children and they both agree this is one of the best places we've stayed. This will be our new London "home" whenever we get the good fortune to return.

We recently stayed at Coach House as part of a holiday throughout the UK and Ireland. London was the first stop on our tour and Meena and Harley were kind enough to arrange a car to pick us up at the airport and bring us to Coach House. Coach House is located a five minute walk to the Balham underground, making it a convenient location just outside center. Coach House itself was spacious, with a small and tastefully decorated kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Breakfast was served in the main house and Meena's cooking was spectacular! The days we left early to sightsee, Meena and Harley left a wide array of breakfast foods in the Coach House for our consumption. Harley and Meena were friendly, approachable and very helpful in giving directions and taking a genuine interest in our plans for the day.
However, we have two reservations in recommending Coach House to other travelers. The main floor bedroom became EXTREMELY damp- despite having the windows closed- enough to make your clothes and sheets noticeably damp (not the most appealing after a long day of travelling). The second, and perhaps greater issue, was the complete lack of hot water and water pressure. Though we were informed that hot water was in short supply, and we could not manage more than two showers at a time, we found the hot water lasted no more than 2 minutes per shower in the downstairs bathroom. This 2 minutes of "hot" water was more an alternating patterm of scalding and frigid droplets trickling from the shower head. During our time in London, it rained with more gusto than this shower could muster! Furthermore, the upstairs shower came with an instructional manual, which even when followed diligently, failed to work at all- leaving 4 people to use the downstairs, very small, shower. For a building marketed to accommodate five people, the showering facilities were totally inadequate- even for a couple.
The dampness combined with the showering facilities detracted from an otherwise pleasant stay. For the price, we would recommend searching for comparable accommodation.

Host/owners of the Coach House Harley & Meena were excellent hosts. They were extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating by helping us with transportation, information on where to go and providing continental breakfasts in our 2 bedroom/2bath cottage when we had to leave on some early mornings. The prepared full breakfasts provided for us were extremely hearty, filling and can only be found at home. Great place for family with teenagers. The cottage provided was a 2 story, 2 bedrooms/2baths, and a full kitchen. It was very private and comfortable. You cannot find a better place to stay in London. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found the Coach house. Highly recommended

Our party of 6 with 3 children aged 8, 8 and 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at FOS. It was a lovely house in a convenient location. There was plenty of room for the children and adults to enjoy themselves. We enjoyed the convenience of a fully equiped home and would highly recommend it as an alternative to a hotel stay. We also stayed with LCH in Paris and again would highly recommend it. Both were great value. The staff at LCH in both London and Paris were professional, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be booking with them again.

We had 3 free tickets to fly to the U.K., so my wife and 2 boys made our way to London. My boys are 12 and 15. I kind of waited to the last minute on accomodations and I really wanted a flat. I looked up Coach House and they hooked us up with a flat just south of Victoria Station. It was a 3 bedroom 2 bath flat. It was someone's home, which was a little different to get used to. Coach House was great. They set up a car service for us (45 pounds) to and from Heathrow. A rep from Coach House met us wiith all the instructions and a basket of goodies, including tea, coffee and breakfast items.

London was great. We were so close ot the Tube, we took it the whole time. We did the Tower of London, Westminster, St. Paul's, Churchill museaum, etc. We also took a day trip with Golden Tours to Bath, Windsor and Stonehendge. Golden Tours did a great job. We could have used more time at Windsor and Bath and less at Stonehendge. Bath was awesome.

Over the weekend we caught the Chunnel to Paris and stayed at the Westin Paris on Starwood points. They didn't have our booked rooms and put us up in two great apartments.

Overall the trip was awesome. Our neighborhood had great restaurants (About Thyme, Uno, O Sole Mio, Olivio, etc.) Overall, great trip, once in the lifetime. Feel free to email me with questions.
