The Space

We are a couple with a spare bedroom in our bright and airy South London Flat. We live in a lovely and quiet residential area. The single room is available to rent for short stays of up to 2 weeks.

The bedroom has a single bed, which is next to a large window with views of the area and lots of sunlight. The room has a fitted wardrobe for your use, a small desk and chair and a couple of small pot plants.

There is unlimited free internet access. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans and an oven, and you are welcome to make yourself a cup of tea or cook a meal. The flat has laminated floors and was refurbished 3 years ago.

The flat is in Camberwell Green, which is in zone 2. The nearest tube station is Oval (on the Northern Line), 15 minutes walk away or 5 minutes by bus. There are also a lot of buses towards Central London and East London. From the flat it will take you around 20-25 minutes by bus to the main attractions like the London Eye, Big Ben, the Southbank and Covent Garden - perfect for shopping.

Our local area is safe and enjoyable with a lot of restaurants, bars, cafes, pubs, shops and supermarkets etc.

There is no TV, but London has so much to offer, you won't get bored. As we live in the flat, we will be happy to give you suggestions on what to do. We have lived in London for 5 years. I'm originally from Spain and my girlfriend is French. I am a social worker and she works for a theatre.

  • It was my first airbnb experience and it turned out to be pretty positive.

    Nicolas didn’t mind that I was going to arrive around midnight (I couldn’t make it earlier because of the inconvenient flight schedule), which was very kind of him. He and Violaine seemed like really nice people, even though I didn’t see much of them because I was out sightseeing from early in the morning till late in the evening.

    I absolutely loved the neighborhood: I always felt safe there and it took me around 30 minutes by bus to get to the places I was interested in.

    The apartment was quite small, but clean and cozy. I had everything I needed, including the most important things for me – hot water at any time of the day/night and well-functioning Wi-Fi. However, it came as a bit of a cultural shock that the central heating was turned off at night in January. I didn’t know that it was common practice in Europe (we don’t do that in our country at this time of the year). But it was a minor inconvenience. I really enjoyed my stay, anyway. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

    Response from Nicolas:

    hi Julia, thanks for your review. sorry I could not write your review on time as we have been away for a month just after you left and now i can not find where to do it. So i will leave it here.
    It was great to have Julia around, she seems to be a very nice person although we did not see each other much as she was out most of the time visiting the city. She presented polite and respectful. I would highly recommend Julia as a guest. I hope the rest of your trip was fine for your. good luck

  • Violaine & Nicolas are very friendly and nice couple. I felt very welcome and comfortable during my stay in their flat. We only met the first day before they went away for visiting their friends, however Violaine shared some insights about life & etc. with me the first day. That was really wonderful! Their flat is simple but cozy and tidy, let makes me feel home :-)

  • Wonderful, friendly, and welcoming couple! Everything was provided as well as directions to sightseeing points and instructions on use of public transportation. I appreciated their friendliness as well as having my own space to make my own schedule. Great, relaxing home to return to after a day out seeing London! I had such a great experience here and would certainly recommend it.

  • The room and apartment are clean and comfortable, with several bus stops around the corner. I had a great time in London and I can only recommend Nicolas' apartment.

    September 2013
  • I had a lovely stay at Nicolas flat !
    They are a very nice couple and the flat has a great location.

    September 2013
  • The apartment and the room is great, as well as the hosts. Although I didn't get to see them often during my stay due to their working schedules and my tourist schedule, Nicolas and Violaine were very friendly each time we spoke. The apartment is clean and beautiful, and the room, comfortable. It was my first Airbnb experience and it went very well, despite the fact that I was traveling alone and for the first time in the UK; I never felt unsafe. The location is not at a walkable distance to the center but many, many buses are available to get there easily. Overall, I highly recommend this place.
