5* luxury flat with rainfall shower

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Kingsmead Rd, London, SW2 3JD, United Kingdom

The Space

Welcome to my cosy flat which is set on the second floor of a large Edwardian house (you will have sole use of this self-contained flat on the top floor of the house - this has its own lockable front door so nobody else can get inside the flat - its all yours during your stay!).

ADDED EXTRAS - your pillows will each have a chocolate on them and I will leave croissants, jam and butter for your first morning's breakfast.

All of these facilities will be EXCLUSIVELY YOURS to enjoy during your stay (I will be living elsewhere!).

INCLUDES wireless broadband with UNLIMITED downloads at no additional cost.

I have taken great care and love over the last few years whilst renovating this flat and am now happy to open its doors to caring visitors who will look after it well!

It is a studio flat. This means that there is one large room which has the following features:

*superkingsize bed with ultra-comfortable mattress which combines springs and memory foam for a great sleep;
*a choice of feather or microfibre duvet and pillows (please let me know your preference so your choice of bedding it waiting for you);
*100% cotton bedding;
*television mounted on the wall (with freeview channels - so lots of choice) over the bed for comfortable tv viewing whilst laying in bed;
*comfy 3-seater sofa with coffee table;
*fully functioning kitchen with tiled floor and all the cutlery/plates/glasses etc you should need (including champagne flutes should you wish to paper yourself whilst in the jacuzzi bath!)

The flat has its own separate luxury bathroom with jacuzzi bath, huge mirrors, separate shower with rainfall shower head (and separate handheld shower), limestone tiles with underfloor heating; and large fluffy matching designer DKNY towels on the towel radiator.

Outside the house there is plenty of parking along the road - you will not require any permit and there is no charge for parking - great if you hire a car during your stay!

I don't have a garden. However, there is a park within 2 minutes walk from the flat - great if you want to enjoy a picnic outside!

Although the flat is not super-central it has EXCELLENT train links - so you can travel around very easily and quickly. The trains are frequent and there are lots of options:
- Closest train station: Tulse Hill (7 mins walk from home and this train takes you DIRECT to central London (London Bridge) in 15 mins) or Blackfriars or Farringdon in under 18 minutes.
- 30 mins to Victoria Station (involving a change of train or a walk to Streatham Hill station)
- 45 mins to city centre from our front door (to Oxford Circus)
- Closest underground tube station: Brixton (12-15 mins by bus and 7 min walk from home to bus stop).

-Second closest train station: Streatham Hill (12 mins walk from home and this train takes you direct to Clapham Juntion - you can change trains at Clapham Junction for trains to Victoria, Gatwick or Brighton)

I have said check in is at 6pm as that is the earliest I can get back to the flat after work. However, I am more than happy to come and meet you somewhere in central London (generally Chancery Lane tube station, which is on the Central Line) (which is what I have done for my other Airbnb visitors and it works very well) earlier on in the day if you would like to check in earlier (please get in touch and we can make arrangements which suit us both!).

I can also provide an airbed and extra clean bedding and towels for a small extra charge if you want a third person to stay with you - just let me know!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was our third time staying in Alison's flat. I'm running out of new awesome things to say about it. And I have no complaints! I can honestly say that Alison is a fantastic hostess and actually cares about your experience. Previously I had told her in private feedback about some things that might make the flat a little better and upon return, she's made those little changes. It's a fantastic flat and she's an amazing hostess. Does it really get better than that?

  • Lovely flat, faultlessly clean and a great stay. Alison made everything simple and even treated us to a Ferrero Roche on arrival. The bed is literally a cloud, we both agree it is the comfiest bed we have slept in. The bathroom is magnificent...designed beautifully and one I would quite like in my own home. If we were to stay in London again, we would certainly re-book.
    Thank you Alison.

  • My partner and I had a lovely stay in Alison's flat. Her home is beautifully appointed, spacious and very comfortable (five stars for cleanliness too!). Plus, the location is perfect for those exploring central London!

  • Great Great Great!
    Thanks Alison:D
    The place is just as the photoshoot.
    Eventhough I couldn't meet Alison
    because it was a Christmas season.
    But there are a detail manuscript.
    We could use all facilities following
    the written instructions.
    No problem.
    There was no shampoo, conditioner
    and body washes. You should bring
    them. And then the rest thing is
    rest in the fantastic cozy flat.
    Really nice bed and bathtub.
    Can't forget.
    Thanks Alison.

  • Loved our stay, very convenient and has all the things you need to have a cosy stay in London. Lovely decor throughout and host was friendly and helpful.

    December 2013
  • Alison's place is great! We loved it and we always felt at home whenever we returned from our tour of London. The place is so convenient, with the Tulse Hill's station connecting to all the major train and underground junctions in the city. Alison is extremely organized and left very explicit information concerning the house. The toilet is a big plus and as big as a room! Most of all, Alison took the time to put up the CHRISTMAS tree for our arrival! Thanks so much Alison, we appreciate you hosting! Cheerio!

    December 2013
  • Photos and description match the property exactly and Alison was great, very helpful and quick to respond.

    December 2013
  • Alison is very polite, accurate and the person who DOES care about you, your stay and your arrival.

Hi, my name is Alison (or Ali - I don't mind which!), I am a 31 years old and currently live in South London. By day I am a solicitor who works in central London (so I can give you lots of tips about where to go in London and how best to get around) and in my evenings and weekends I am a cake designer - making cakes for birthdays, weddings and all sorts of other special events! (Quite a dangerous profession when you're as much of a chocoholic as I am!) I love weekends in the countryside and catching up with friends and family. I love dogs (but don't have any of my own yet!). If you'd like to stay in my flat please get in touch, I'll be happy to try my best to answer your questions and help with any special requests!
