I live in the Kennington/Vauxhall/Oval area, south of Thames. Quite close to Central London - 20 min by bus to Piccadilly circus and Soho. The Parliament buildings at Westminster and the London Eye lie within walking distance.

There is no smoking inside the apartment, and no pets are allowed.

Because i will usually be working when you arrive, The keys are available for pickup from local pharmacy, where i work Saturdays, in Stockwell, one tube stop away. This has proved to be the most convenient method of collecting keys as it takes out stress from delayed flights etc. Pharmacy open 9am to 7pm, arrivals out with these times will be direct from me at flat but please highlight when booking to ensure i will be at home.

The area is very nice and green. Several parks are nearby (Kennington park and Vauxhall park). There are several very good restaurants nearby, a big grocery store (Tesco) is a 5 min walk away. The area is very safe.

Lots of easy, great transport links with 8 direct buses taking you to the heart of London within 5-15 minutes. (10minutes to Charing Cross, Trafalgar Square and Westminster,15minutes to Regent Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus). Oval (Northern Line) and Vauxhall (Victoria Line) Tube , and Vauxhall Train Stations are 5 minutes away on foot with 3 London cycle hire docking stations within 3 minutes of the apartment for hire at 1pound a day.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Me and my mom stayed at Graeme's for one night and we enjoyed it a lot. We only had one day in London, therefore it was excellent, because the location is near tube stations and not far from the city centre. Also, Graeme is friendly and willing to answer questions and suggest which places to visit. The flat itself is cosy and tidy, so I warmly recommend it.

  • My husband and I stayed with Graeme for our honeymoon in London for one night. The room was very clean and neat, and easy to find. Graeme was very helpful and friendly with check-in and we were able to deposit our bags there as soon as we arrived in London, before heading back out for some sight-seeing. The rest of our stay was equally pleasant. He was friendly when he was in, but not overly pushy for us to socialize if we didn't feel like it. His house was quiet and the room quite comfortable. I'd definitely recommend this place and if we're ever in London again we will certainly look him up! Highest recommendation from two satisfied guests!

  • Very nice stay, my sis and I were there for 3 nights. Key pickup was easy and Graeme's directions to his place were detailed and easy to follow. Two tube stations within walking distance as well as a grocery store. The ability to do laundry there was a huge plus as well.

  • Great place to sleep and freshen up, we didn't spend much time at the flat otherwise. Graeme was very kind and we enjoyed speaking with him the night we all happened to be there. Pleasant first Airbnb experience.

  • Our first AirBnB experience (what a cliche starting sentence) and it was a great one. Graeme is a fantastic host. He answers really fast on Whatsapp Messages and is a very nice and helpful person. The flat was very clean and we felt welcomed. Very nice neighbourhood. The stations for tube and train aren't far away, as well as a supermarket (Tesco).
    We would definitely come back and enjoy the pulsating city of London (also at Graemes flat).
    Thanks for the nice stay!

I am a new enthusiast to the Tim Ferris philosophy of 4-hour Work Week and 4-hour Body. I've just started a few internet based projects trying to find my 'muse'. I love movies, many different genres. My favourite tv is 'The Killing'- Danish original version, Dexter, Mentalist, Hustle, Body of Evidence, Him&Her, Miranda, Mrs Brown's Boys............... Go to the gym but don't really know what i'm doing there ?!? Enjoy Yoga but not very flexible. I love food in general but can't eat cheese.
