IMPORTANT NOTICE: IF YOU ARE FACING THE HOUSE, PLEASE PARK YOUR CAR ON THE LEFT NOT RIGHT BECAUSE I PARK MY CAR ON THE RIGHT, IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW THIS RULE THEN YOUR PARKING WILL BE ILLEGAL. I JUST HAD SOMEONE PARKED THEIR CAR ON THE RIGHT, AND CAUSED A LOT OF NUISANCE. THANK YOU
Secure parking in a private driveway of a mid terrace property. Just 20 mins to Heathrow Airport terminal 5 by bus or 10 mins by cab to any terminal.
We live at the property which means we will keep an eye on your car if we are not on holiday. The gates are always kept closed. Thanks
You can either take U5 bus to Heathrow terminal 5 and free transfers to other terminals or a cab. To take U5 bus, if you are facing the road, turn to your left, keep walking till you reach a roundabout, turn left again, keep walking till you come to a traffic light, where you will also see Tesco express on your right. There is a bus stop about 10 feet away from Tesco express on the same side of the road as the Tesco. If you are unsure, you can check with someone in Tesco :)
If you are getting a cab, you can either use uber service or google for "West Drayton Taxi", you will get few contact numbers.
Wish I could give his unkind gentleman a 0 star. The parking space picture he shows in the description is now smaller as a result of a newly constructed porch. So, if you have a longer car like my Toyota Avensis, it would be a squeeze to fit it in especially if the host has already parked his car. Sensing this, I parked in the location where I felt it was appropriate and flew from Heathrow for a week. And to my surprise the host kept on sending me threatening messages that he would file a police complaint and that he would get my car removed. I couldn't access these messages till the day I returned and I had to go through a couple of most anxious hours of my life thinking about the safety of the car especially because it was getting dark and I had a newborn with me. That said, you should be okay to park your car according to his instructions as long as it is a hatchback, anything bigger, it will be very tight.
Easy to find, lovely owners, does take a bit of maneuvering to get the car in the space however its not very dificult. I walked and got the free shuttle bus to T3 which took around 20-25 mins. Got an uber from the airport back as it was an early landing - however this cost £20.
Good parking spot, seems fairly safe and secure. Car was fine after leaving it there for a week. Short taxi ride to airport. Was slightly concerned about the awkward parking after reading previous reviews but it's fine if you open both gates and reverse in. Also, I have a saloon car so it's not exactly tiny.
Robet was helpful when I messed up my online booking. Easy to find and car safe for the short time I was gone, no problems at all, woud happily use again.
Just take care when reversing in! But great location for Heathrow and very very helpful and friendly host. Would definitely recommend it and use it myself again!
Convenient for Heathrow terminals 1,2,3. Slightly awkward parking behind a gate by the hedge. Friendly and helpful people.
