Enjoy the best of both world being in a vibrant local neighbourhood yet close to London's centre - just 10-15mins away by tube or train and with lots of buses past all major sights.

A true urban oasis and boltholt in bustling London Town. This period Victorian house has 2 jaccuzi bath tub, 2 showers heated marble floors. A modern, open plan living/kitchen/dining area that comes with a vintage feel but all the mod cons: flat screen digital HDTV, cable, dvd player, ipod dock, wireless broadband, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine. Fully serviced by a weekly cleaner included in the price, well maintained with great guide books & what to do suggestions. We are a popular listing as our reviews show located in a genuine London neighbourhood that is not a central tourist trap. An accomodation in London popular with couples on romantic city breaks, families looking for a family vacation home, tourists coming for sightseeing, locals wanting a fun night together, wedding parties, hen parties and bachelorette parties, people on business trips, as a base to explore Oxford, Stone Henge, and other English places of interest, all sorts really. We try to cater to your needs and are open and approachable with a respect for people's privacy.

The location is ideal for fast commuting to any part of the city on any mode of public transport. Brixton Tube has fast tubes into Victoria in 4 stations / 12mins OR Oxford Circus in 6 stations / 15mins. There are 4 overground train stations to all parts of London and beyond all less than a mile from the flat (Connex/Thameslink/Southern/SouthEast lines). There are also numerous buses to all parts of London from our front door going to ALL major sights on a single bus ride (London Eye, Big ben, Westminister Abbey, Downing St, Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Covent Garden, Oxford/Regent /Carnaby Street, Marble Arch, Hyde Park).

I have opened my own home to visitors for 6 years, and for 20 years at my family home which is seconds away, so hosting is in my blood. We understand how important it is to have a sense of your own space to relax in and a home away from home and our place is just that. We are a friendly young couple with a great sense of adventure, we enjoy discovering new things and places in London daily. Being a creative chef at #MEATliquor and interior designer we like to stay creative and tuned in to all the city has to offer and we love finding inspiration in new places, be they restaurants, vintage or design shops or underground events. We invite you to make yourself at home and ask us for any advice or anything that you need to get the most out of your trip.

Please do check out our other listings for bigger groups. Happy Travelling!

Guest Access

Living room, full kitchen, washing machine, wifi, the entire place is dedicated to airbnb guests and there is a huge picnic park with playground right outside.

Interaction with Guests

We stay in the apartment next door so we are on hand when you need us and can give you space when you just want to relax in your own company. You basically have free run of the place. We will greet you and pop up to see how your day was and are right there if you need any tour guide info!

The Neighborhood

We love our neighbourhood which has a real local feel. Vibrant and dynamic, friendly and hip. Brixton Village is the hang out spot that Londoners flock too and tourists are cottoning on fast too! With vintage shops, market stalls, cake shops and small restaurants and boutique bars its adorably charming!

Getting around

Free street parking outside, this is gold dust! Super convenient fast tube getting you to Victoria in 12mins or Oxford Circus in 15mins. We also have 8 bus lines to ever sight and attraction possible literally at the end of the street. Also between 3 train lines and loads to do locally on foot

Other Things to Note

London is big, thankfully with the tube and transport network nothing is more then a jump on a bus or tube away (rush hour on affects road travel mostly). It is best discovered on foot with a travelcard over driving. The pavements are hard so pack some comfy shoes.

London is divided into 6 concentric zones with zone1 being the heart of town with more historic sights then residential places and zone 6 being suburbia. We are in zone 2 which is highly central by the London standard.

    Response from Miranda:

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay!

  • Miranda's place is the absolute BOMB! Highly recommended as a home-away-from-home in London. The flat itself is gorgeous, with beautiful decorations and everything you could need. Warm and cosy, it's ideally located to get anywhere you need to go with bus and train stops very close by. Miranda and her family are perfectly lovely, and really made me feel welcome from the moment I stepped in. They helped me with everything I needed in my first week of work in a new city, from pointing me in the right direction, to printing last minute teaching resources, loaning me international adapters and keeping the heating up to my delicate Australian standards! Super grateful to Miranda and her family for taking such good care of me. Incidentally, they also have the cutest little girl in the world, which makes for an even more enjoyable stay! Thanks, Miranda :)

    Hi Kate, oh you are too kind, it was such a delight to have you stay and we really hope we stay in touch, Mila misses you too!

  • Miranda & her husband were lovely hosts. The house is gorgeous and very comfortable. We were only there for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. They gave great sightseeing ideas & good directions. We would stay there again!

    Response from Miranda:

    So lovely to meet you both and so coincidental you live in Charleston SC. Happy Thanksgiving. Miranda

  • I has a wonderful 3 weeks at both Miranda's and her mothers bnb - they are both great hosts with lovely properties. Kind warm and friendly.
    Great rooms, lovely bathrooms (loved the heated floor s at Mirandas - was so nice on a winters morning! and both have well equipped kitchens - all you could really ask for in a BnB
    Great location - feels safe and a nice area to be - but still within cooee of Brixton and the direct bus's into town - get that Oyster Card Miranda will suggest - you will get lots of use out of it.
    Thanks Again Ladies for a lovely break - I enjoyed every minute of it
    Will book for my next trip in 2013 - HAPPY CHRISTMAS

    Thanks for such a lovely review! How was the flight back? Hey to be reunited with hubby and heat?

  • The place was clean and nice. Location was perfect for our trip. Host was friendly and very helpful. Recommended.

    November 2012
  • Miranda's pad is very comfortable, welcoming and the room was to a very high standard. We were made feel welcome and at home during our weekend stay. The location is excellent for public transport, which suited us as we had a busy schedule catching up with friends in all corners of the city.

    The house has a great open layout in the living areas, and a real relaxed feel. The bedroom is well laid out, spacious, with a wonderful double bed and cable television. Special mention to the beautifully designed bathroom (including a hot tub).

    While we were not in the house too much during day time hours, we had a few nice chats and coffees with Miranda and her husband and they are most gracious hosts and recommended us a great lunch spot in Brixton market. I have no reservations heartily recommending the Zen Room to any future AirBnBers.

    November 2012
  • It was really great at Mirandas Castle.
    We would definitely come back if we can.

    Many Greets & Bless

  • Excellent location with great buses and tube into Central London. Clean, stylish and comfortable accommodations-- you really feel as if it's your home away from home. I looked forward every night to sleeping in the comfy bed. Miranda is a friendly hostess.

Hi I am Miranda - A life long Londoner with a flair for travel, food and architecture. I enjoy interiors, it's also what I do for my work and I hope it is reflected in my home. Myself, my husband, and my little newborn have been enjoying sharing our home and hosting for nearly a year and have metmsome lovely people. We invite you to enjoy the comfort and beautiful tranquility of our sunny, spacious 3 double, 2 bathroomed town house to kick back and relax in as if it were you're own home away from home. It can be rented room for room or you can have the entire place. The house looks over a great communal park so plenty of outside space too, it even has a playground for kids as well. I'd love to help you get the most out of your visit to this great capital city that I live in, know and love. My husband and I have a lot of quirky guide books on the bookshelf and maps for you to use, lots of local knowledge of markets, eateries and fun places to visit. We are a relaxed laid back, respectful couple with a little mild mannered little new born called Mila. We have opened our home as a family vacation home, a lodge house, a bed and breakfast, a launch pad to explore and sightsee in London, and for the Olympics. It even works for hen parties and bachelorette parties, for the wedding group to get ready in and even as the wedding couple's honeymoon suite. How would you like to use it? We look forward to hearing from you. "All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them" - Galileo
