Quiet comfortable flat with private entrance and garden backing onto a leafy embankment. Trains/buses to Central London, beautiful park with open-air lido, pubs, restaurants, shops, cafés and a vibrant Sunday Market.
The flat has two bedrooms with a king-sized bed in one and a single in the other. We do also have a blow-up bed if somebody didn't mind camping in the living room. So although we say space for three, it could be four. Towels, bed linen, toiletries, coffee, tea and milk are provided along with any dry goods you find in the cupboards!
You will have access to everything including the garden.
Interaction with Guests
The flat is the ground floor of a three storey house. We live on the third floor when we have guests. We are easily contactable if there are any problems. Otherwise you will be left alone to enjoy your stay.
Herne Hill is an area with its own community groups and forum. It feels like a village but with very easy access to the city and everything you need is "just round the corner".
The station is 2 minutes away where you can get trains to Victoria (8 minutes). From there you can access the Underground for the West End. You can also get trains to Blackfriars (9 mins) for a walk along the river to Tate Modern and the Southbank. Plenty of buses to take you to the centre of London and Waterloo.
Other Things to Note
Check in can be negotiated - it depends on the day/date and the particular circumstances of the guests. Check out is anytime before 12 am.
We do not allow pets or smoking - smokers are welcome to use the garden.
Patricia's apartment was charming, and we had a lovely stay in it. The photographs reflected what we found and everything was clean and tidy. All appliances worked as expected. The neighborhood was quiet with nice shops and restaurants (and a very big park) and well communicated to Victoria Station (10 minutes train).
El apartamento de Patricia era encantador y tuvimos una magnifica estancia. Las fotografías reflejaban lo que encontramos. La casa estaba limpia y ordenada y todos los electrodomésticos funcionaban bien. El barrio es tranquilo, con bonitos negocios y restaurantes (y un parque bastante grande) además de bien comunicado con la estación de Victoria (10 minutos en tren).
Patricia was easy to contact and would reply to messages and emails immediately. Very welcoming and informative when showing us around property. Flat was really lovely, tea, coffee and towels all provided and everything was tidy and clean with beautiful garden. Plus necessities like iron, hair dryer, mirrors etc all available. Really lovely location, round the corner from the station and close to park and Sunday market. Perfect flat for a weekend away. Would definitely recommend.
I stayed in Patricia & Damian groundfloor flat in Herne Hill for three weeks in a cold, dank January. I was visiting on a working vacation and the place was absolutely PERFECT. The flat itself is very cosy and warm and tastefully fitted out, everything worked very well and the location for my purposes was ideal. Herne Hill station is literally 30 seconds - 8 mins to Victoria, 15 mins to the City - and buses seemed to go to everywhere I wanted to go to. Patricia & Damian live in a flat upstairs but everything is completely self contained with a small garden at the rear. They were both very welcoming and delightful, helping me out when I inadvertently locked myself out, providing me a couple of parking permits when I hired a car for a couple of days. I would thoroughly recommend this place to either a business person or a couple (with a small child) and cannot praise it highly enough. I visit London a couple of times a year and henceforth this will be my "go to" place.
The flat was even nicer than it looks on the photographs, it was comfortable, spacious, clean and extremely conveniently located - all that one needs for a stay in London. On Sunday we were able to buy our breakfast directly from the farmer market outside the door, and the hosts had given as much thought to their little guide booklet as they have with every detail of space, inside and out. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
