You will be welcomed to a lovely flat within a modern development which is excellently located with 5 means of public transport of ur choice. I am an aerialist so there are aerial equipments at home if you like to try them out!
This one bedroom flat is on the 12th floor with modern lifts access. From the windows you can see all the trains going in and out of the stations, but because of the height you will be shielded from the noise. It is one of my favourite things to do, having a drink looking down to the hustle and bustle of the city.
I have a double bed, which you will be using when you are here. I will be sleeping in the lounge to stay out of your way. Though I often not around or arriving home very late, guests usually end up having the whole place to themselves.
If cooking is your thing, feel free to use the kitchen as long as it is cleaned after. There is a Tesco downstairs, about 30 secs away. Then if you cross the road to the station, u will find a Waitrose and a Sainsbury which open from 7am-11pm.
What everyone love best about my place is the location. With over 5 means of transportation available, u will be spoilt with choices and positively surprised by how quick u can get to all the main tourists attractions. I also got a very comfy bed. Be sure to set 2 or 3 alarms if u have a plane to catch in the morning! My guests often have afternoon naps that lasted all the way pass dinner time.
The usuals: Bathroom, kitchen, coffee/tea, towels, wifi, tv (not cable), lounge, robotic hoover, hair dryer, iron etc.
The extra: I have some aerial equipments at home which I practice sometimes, you are welcome to have a go at your own risk! If you ask nicely you get to borrow my yoga mat too ;-) . If you haven't spotted in the picture, yes I have a piano, help yourself but only when my neighbours are not asleep.
The limits: I will have all my clothes in the wardrobe but I will make some space for u if u need it.
Interaction with Guests
My schedule varies tremendously. But in general I am not at home much, and when I am, I can keep out of your way if u prefer to get on with your own things. Its all very cool and civilised.
St George Wharf boasts views up and down the river from the London Eye to Battersea Power Station and beyond. With a stunning series of landscaped courtyards and elegant fountains, there is an idyllic rural atmosphere in the heart of central London. On-site amenities, including riverside restaurants/bars, paid-gym, dry cleaner, yoga studio, nail bar, hair salon, art café, Pret a Manger, and Tesco.
Across the street by the station you can find Waitrose, Sainsbury, Starbucks, Nandos, a 24-hour convenience store, a rock climbing centre and night clubs.

Nice room with bathrooom next door, wi-fi, and comfortable bed. Description is very accurate. Serena was very welcoming and provided me with everything I needed. Thank you so much for all your help Serena! Highly recommend!
Serena's apartment is ideally located right by Vauxhall stations and is a really comfortable place to base yourself. I've returned several times, and always enjoy my stay - she always makes sure I am well looked after!
Serena is a great host ,she help a lot with her text .and the house is lovely and excellent location
Serena Ng was an excellent host. The flat was just as described and centrally located in London. The coach station and Tube station were right outside the flat.
Serena was the perfect host. She greeted me on the morning of my arrival so I may drop off my luggage and go about visiting, a Big Plus.
The appartment was so conveniently located right over the Tube. Also all kinds of proximity shops around.
The place was a good size to share, very clean, all the amenities needed. Serena is a sweet & very quiet person and I didn't see her all that much. Would very much recommend.
Serena's listing was spot on:
- comfortable lodgings
- superb venue from which to explore London
- additional guidance
Serena was a superb hostess!!!
I really had a great time in this amazing flat! I was in London for less than two days and I believe I've found in Serena's room the best place to stay! Unfortunately I didn't met her because of the short time (I was outside the house most of the time!), but she gave me all the informations that I need and I really felt like home! The flat is really great, very clean and nice, the bed is amazing (even too much, I wanted to sleep forever haha!) and the position it's amazing, it's just in front of the underground stop (victoria line), perfect! I suggest it to everyone!
I live a very full life which brings me away from in my lovely apartment a lot. A dear friend of mine has been using this website and recommended me to share my space on here. I travel a lot and understand how sometimes it can be nice to stay with someone rather than to go home to an empty hotel room.
