No smoking in the house and keep the house secure by locking windows and doors when leaving to go out anywhere. The neighbours are elderly and quiet so please be respectful of them. We have 2 locks on the front door- please lock both when you go out. Clean up and do your own dishes and keep space tidy. NO BRINGING STRANGERS BACK TO THE HOUSE!
It was really a great experience staying in London with these two ladies. They were so kind and friendly and helped us with everything we asked for. The location is near the underground station , place is clean and quiet. Our best recommendation !
It was really great time in London, because of super place we stayed in. The location of the house is just perfect: the park, the shop and the underground station in 5-7 minutes of walking. Leanne and Kate are really friendly and from the 1 minute it is understandable they are great people. We felt like at home.
Thank you guys and Ginny too! :)
P.S. And many thanks for suggestions! We saw everything we wanted to see in London, even designer's market ;)
Leanne and Kate were really nice friendly people and made me feel completely at home. The house was in a nice area, quite quiet too. I visit London a lot and will certainly try to stay here again. Thank you for a great week!
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil de Leane qui nous a attendu à la gare de St Pancras pour nous remettre la clef. Le logement est petit mais propre et a l'avantage d'être central. Très pratique pour visiter Londres tout proche des transports en commun. Bonne adresse.
Lovely place with small room. Nice host!!! And a cute dog, Ginny. They provide everything they can, including their suggestions about visiting London. Especially good restaurant, ha!!! The environment is good and quite. 10 minutes walk to tube and feel safe even walking in night. Totally the same description in the customs guide. We have very wonderful experience to stay with Leanne, Kate, and Ginny for 8 nights~~
Leanne and Kate were amazing host.
I stayed with Leanne and Kate for 7 nights in their lovely place.
Everything was perfect!!
I really enjoyed hanging out with them.
I recommend you Leanne and Kate at 1000%
Leanne and Kate are great hosts! They are friendly, warm and gave us many tipps and directions for exploring the city. The tube and the buses are only a short walk away from their place. So the city is just around the corner. A special thanks for the great cake and for the Oyster cards.
We really enjoyed our time in London Kennington and we can absolutely recommend your place! We wish you the best and greetings to Ginny.

I am chilled out, love art, London parks, great food and a pint in the local pub. I also love travelling when I am not working full time. If you like the arts there are so many galleries in London and if you are on a limited time frame I can tell you what is a must see. I will try to meet up with you when you arrive to make sure you settle in ok and know where everything is and if you need anything I am more than happy to help you.
