A home away from home for the solo traveller.
A comfortable and safe place to stay in Central London
Near the river and a major transport hub nothing in London is far away.
A good size quiet bedroom in a private apartment, well lit with the morning sun and warm in the winter. With a double bed and a wardrobe. Big Ben can be heard on a Sunday morning and it is only a 20 minute walk away.
The apartment is located in Vauxhall ten minutes walk to the river and five minutes walk to Vauxhall station where you can get the underground, the overground, and buses at the bus terminal. It puts you 15 minutes from anywhere in central London.
Clean bedding, 100% cotton sheets and towels, unlimited fast internet, clothes washing machine, and a morning coffee are provided. We don’t provide meals, but If you are in and we are cooking you will most likely be welcome to join us for dinner, at other times you are welcome to use the kitchen, as long as you please keep it tidy.
You hosts who you will be sharing the apartment with are a middle aged couple - professional women working in respectively healthcare and IT.
Vauxhall is very much in central London on the river Thames opposite Westminster and has excellent transport connections.
You are welcome to use the kitchen but please leave it clean and try to avoid lots of smoke and frying.
We don’t provide meals or food but we do provide the basics such as tea, coffee, sugar milk, cooking oil, etc.

Other Things to Note
We provide fresh clean high quality 100% cotton sheets and towels for every guest.
We have never found the need for house rules per se, everyone who has stayed with us has been polite and considerate and kept the place reasonably clean.
Fern and Claire were the most wonderful, welcoming, accommodating hosts! I had a lovely time staying in their beautiful apartment (seriously, so many cool paintings and wooden furniture!) in the most convenient location. Would definitely recommend!
Die Unterkunft ist schön zentral gelegen und meine Gastgeberin schickte mir eine genaue Beschreibung, um das Haus zu finden. Sie empfing mich freundlich - eine Tasse Tee durfte natürlich nicht fehlen - und sie zeigte mir alle wichtigen Dinge: Badezimmer, Schlüssel, Küchenbenützung etc. Das Zimmer ist - wie beschrieben - gross, hell und freundlich und hat einen grossen Einbauschrank, einen Tisch mit Stuhl und gutes Licht. Das Zimmer hat Zentralheizung - und wem nicht genug warm ist, kann ein zusätzliches Öfeli benützen. Für mich als Einzelreisende war dieses Zimmer sehr angenehm.
Ich fühlte mich sehr wohl und genoss es, mich mit meinen Gastgeberinnen manchmal auszutauschen. Ich erhielt auch auf meinen Wunsch hin Ratschläge, wie ich bei einem Problem vorgehen sollte. Ich fühlte mich sehr wohl während meiner Ferien-Woche und würde wieder dort einkehren.
Fern and Claire are two perfect hosts. All was perfect!!!!
The bedroom is really comfortable with a good matress and pillows. The flat is fully equipped, nice and clean.
The location is close from everything : big ben is at 15 minutes walk, 4/5 tube stations from every interseting places ( British museumtural History Museum, Buckingham Palace, Oxford Street, Picadilly ....). Convenient and allow you to save money in the transports.
Fern and Claire are really friendly and take care about their hosts. They provide me a lot of advices about a lot of things (directions, interesting things to do in London, books shop ...)
Fern et Claire sont très agréables et leur accueil sans pareil. L'appartement est parfait. Il est propre complètement équipé. La chambre est propre et très agréable; avec un bon lit et de bons oreillers.
Elles m'ont toutes les deux beaucoup aidé dans la planification de mes journées en m'indiquant des lieux intéressants et toutes les commodités.
L'appartement est extrêmement proche de tout (buckingham, picadilly, magasins, big ben, british museum et tous les autres musées). C'est très pratique et permet d'économiser beaucoup d'argent dans les transports (très chers à Londres).
Ne cherchez pas plus longtemps, c'est vraiment un endroit idéal !!!
Thanks to my hosts !! Merci à mes hôtesses !!
I had a very comfortable stay! Claire and Fern were great hosts, very nice and friendly and even though we did not meet much, whenever we did meet they were always asking about me and offering me coffee! They also provided very detailed directions to the apartment. The room was a good size and it was comfortable and cosy. Location was alright, short walk from the tube and lots of supermarkets nearby.
Fern and Claire were such wonderful hosts! They made me feel very welcome and helped me out a lot. The room was really comfortable (I loved the bed). The house is conveniently located, right beside a grocery store and only about a minute or so from a tube station. I would definitely recommend this place and would be more than happy to come back!
I felt definitively at home!! Fern and Claire are the perfect hosts. The room and the house are as described. Comfortable and properly equipped: I missed nothing during my stay. I did all as I was in my home. And the room is enough quiet and silent.
The locaton is really central and at 5 minutes from the Underground and railway station. Cool pubs around as well. it is a pleasure walking along the river and if you want to have a quick run in the morning you can reach a two minute far park.
We had also a great Italian dinner...done by Claire an Fern, who both are very good at cooking.
No other words: recommended!
Fern and Claire were very nice hosts. They make your stay a real "at home." Prompt responses and good directions to find the place. Convenient location to get around in London (two buses to the city, Underground and Trains, and many other buses). Supermarkets and several restaurants options on the way from the station to home too.
