About this listing
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.

At first the front desk couldn't find the keys but Serena was responsive and helpful the whole time. Apartment was neat and nice overall and good amount of space in decent proximity of other popular areas in London. Also very willing to accommodate us when we needed to leave our bags. Thanks Serena!
A lovely, big flat, excellently located next to the Vauxhall underground and railway station. Located on the 12th floor it's not noisy.
Serena wasn't at home during my stay, but she gave me all information I needed in advance. During my stay she was always interested in whether I feel good or I have any questions. The Tesco around the corner as well as a Prêt and a Starbucks make this flat a perfect stay.
I will book this flat for my next trip to London. Thank you so much Serena.
This is my first Airbnb experience, and everything was according to my expectations. I did not meet the host as she was away, but the apartment was clean and tidy and the area is really central (only 15 minutes walk by the Thames to the Parliament, London Eye etc).
Great location near tube and Tate Britain gallery. Clean, quiet. Serena was helpful and accommodating.
Serena was a very friendly and helpfull host. I enjoyed the stay with her a lot.
Before I arrived she sent me a instruction, wich tube I have take from the airport, how I find her flat and where I get the key.
The flat is just next to the tesco express (1 min walk) and vauxhall (5 min walk) station. It is very convenient!
Serena was very welcoming and helpful. When there was rumor of a Tube strike in London, she made sure to keep me informed and gave me bus directions. The area is lovely and very practical. It's a nice walk along the Thames and the apartment is located right in front of the underground and the railway station. You can also go to Tooting the indian area via bus. The apartment is pristine and very warm.
About the Host, Serena
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.
