Notre séjour à Londres, dans le quartier de Camberwell, a été très agréable.
L'appartement de Robert est très bien situé (5mn des bus). Le quartier est très bien desservi par les différentes lignes de bus allant aux endroits les plus touristiques de Londres.
Le logement était très propre, très fonctionnel. Robert est facilement joignable sur son téléphone mobile. Nous recommandons le logement de Robert sans hésitation.
Robert was easy to communicate with and the listing was just as described. It was perfectly sized for a comfortable stay and perfectly located for the event that we were attending in the area. A walk to Ruskin park, right up the street, made a nice little stroll, if you felt like getting out an about into some green space.
We've grown to love the camberwell neighbourhood too much! There are delicious restaurants, a supermarket and a bus stop with buses that get us to key attractions of London, and they are within 5mins walk from the apartment.
The apartment is nicely decorated, clean and spacious enough for 2 people. The mattress was slightly uncomfortable for me as it was a little dented where my hip was, but sleep quality wasn't compromised. The shower is well heated and there's a mobile heater in addition to 2 installed on walls near each window.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay :)
Robert was quick to respond to all our enquiries before arrival and was readily available for any questions, suggestions, etc. upon arrival and during our stay. The flat is exactly as pictured and described; very clean and bright with ample room for two people. The shower had good pressure and the deep tub was wonderful for soaking in after hours of walking! We took many walks around the neighbourhood and further and always felt safe. We were extremely impressed with the many reasonable ethnic restaurants, cafes and pubs and the large grocery store just a 5 minute walk away! The bus transportation was a 5 minute walk (if that) and a 10 minute bus ride put you to an underground station; above ground rail was a 10 minute walk. We absolutely loved Camberwell and would definitely return and recommend this flat to everyone!!
Lovely warm apartment in Camberwell. Robert was a great host although we didn't meet him during our stay he had replied to any questions or correspondence quickly, he also booked us a taxi to get from Heathrow to the apartment which was great as it saved trying to get around after my partner has a 10 hour flight over from the US.
The apartment was as described and the photos are exactly how it is, it is cozy for 2 people and there is plenty of room, good internet access and Robert was helpful with bus information which he emailed before we arrived so we could get around at it was so easy!
I would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to stay not too central to London but has great access to get to the sights and there's a nandos down the road which was great :) plenty of shops and takeaways near by, we would stay again.

About the Host, Robert
I am a journalist and author, raised in Australia but living in London. I grew up on the surfing beaches of south-west Western Australia and spent almost 20 years living in Sydney before moving to the UK three years ago.
My wife, Paola, and I are both journalists for a metropolitan daily newspaper. I have also written and published five non-fiction books. We live upstairs. Even though the apartment has a separate entry, it is part of our home which is a lovely Georgian terrace dating back to around 1790.
We love travelling ourselves and have a sense of what our guests need - a combination of comfort and information but also the space to explore one of the world's great cities. As your hosts, we are happy to help.
