I had a lovely time at this place. I would highly suggest biking around to see the sights as it is a flat city and there are lots of bike paths! The apartment was wonderful and Lena and Sven really know how to make you feel at home. Everything I needed was available and when I was looking for how to get around or things to see they were super helpful. I would highly recommend a stay at their house.
My stay at Mathias and Sally's flat was fantastic. It was unfortunate that they were on holiday while I was there, but even then, they were extremely helpful with settling into the apartment and feeling comfortable.
It's a beautiful space with a very large amount of room to stretch out and relax after doing some sightseeing, and the location is superb. The flat is only a short walk and one rail stop away from Victoria station, and I could get around London very easily.
If you're looking for a peaceful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city while still being close to it, this spot is the place to stay!
Mathias and Sally are wonderful hosts! It was so smooth getting to their place with the directions they provided for us (including a map!). They are very gracious people, and their flat is gorgeous. I felt very comfortable there during our stay. We enjoyed talking with the hosts in the evening recapping our adventures. The location is fantastic!!! Just one stop on the Overground from London Victoria. It is a very short walking distance to the Overground station from their flat. Each night after getting of the train, my husband and I enjoyed a drink at the Marson Arm's pub in their neighborhood. It was such a lovely, lovely stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to London!! Thanks for a fantastic time:)

What a beautiful home! The pictures don't do justice to this place - tasteful decor, lovely hosts, super comfortable bed in a great neighbourhood. Just a few steps from a bus stop, and a walking distance from the Battersea Park this place is in the perfect location wether you're looking for a calm place to relax or a buzzling London experience. The place was spotless clean and everything went as smoothly as one could wish for. I HIGHLY recommend! Thanks Sally! Xx
