Delightful, bright bedroom with single bed in restored Victorian villa in South London. Amenities and transport close by make it the perfect base for exploring London.

The leafy London village, Herne Hill, is in Zone 2 situated between wealthy, beautiful Dulwich with its famous Picture Gallery and vibrant Brixton with its listed markets.

Herne Hill station is just a 7 minute walk from the house and one train will take you to Victoria in about 9 minutes or to St Pancreas for Eurostar in about 20 minutes. Brixton Underground Station, on the Victoria line, is a 15 minute walk from the house or a short bus ride making it easy to get to numerous locations within minutes.

Herne Hill is renowned for it's picturesque park, popular pubs and restaurants. Other local amenities include a newly renovated Art Deco gym with outdoor swimming pool, perfect for those hot summer days.

There is WiFi, use of printer and scanner and any time access to the kitchen and lounge. The bathroom is shared with other (usually about 2) guests.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Shaku's place was great I was felling I'm home I did miss that place and I recommend the place for both couple or single .

  • I had a wonderful stay at Shaku's. As a host Shaku was warm, friendly and very helpful. She made you feel comfortable to use the kitchen and washing facilities. Her home is well located for visiting many of the central London attractions (less than ten minutes walk to the train station and ten minutes by train to Victoria Station). There are restaurants nearby and places to buy groceries. With your own key you are free to come and go. I would highly recommend Shaku's place in London.

    Shaku est vraiment gentille, accueillante, elle vous met tout de suite à l'aise. Elle a même essayé de m'aider à trouver un logement sur Londres, en appelant des amis à elle!! Je serai volontiers restée plus longtemps si cela avait été possible.
    Les personnes qui partagées la maison au même moment étaient super sympa, c'était un vrai plaisirs de faire leur connaissance!!

  • Excellent séjour chez Shaku ! La maison est cosy, chaleureuse, et l'ambiance qui règne est familiale. La maison offre de belles prestations et quel plaisir de pouvoir se réchauffer au coin de la cheminée...
    Herne Hill est très bien déservi niveau transport pour se rendre dans le centre de Londres.
    Je recommande vivement ce lieu !

  • I'm happy I stayed with Shaku in London. She is a warm person and host, I felt I was welcome. The location is great, it is very well connected to the city center - only 2 stops by train and you are on Victoria station, the heart of London. The place is cozy, the room is clean and the bed is comfortable :) Other international guests of Shaku make her home atmosphere even more special. Perfect fit when you're visiting London. I would highly recommend this place.

  • That was a wonderful month to stayed at Shaku's place~ She's a wonderful host, I loved the cakes, which she made, so much~ :) Her place is so comfortable, lovely, clear, light and warm, mates were very friendly~ Good location, from St. Pancras International Rail station to Herne Hill is around 22mins, to central London around 15mins.
