Interaction with Guests
We greet all guests to our home in person and give a tour around, we provide a served breakfast each morning (in the garden if the weather is nice), morning the best time to ask advise and pick my brain on things to do.
Our household is a friendly welcoming place to call home, the kettle is always on and we all respect each others sense of space.
Brixton Village has a great artisan market with fresh quirky restaurants and vintage clothing and craft shops, an independent cinema, coffee shops and a big department store in it's centre.

Hi I am Francien!
I love the great city I have called home for the last 41 years and enjoy discovering new places in it every day. I am originally from Indonesia and the travel bug still strong in me as I love exploring new places and cultures. I have been to Germany (where I studied), Jordan, Turkey, Spain, Italy, India, France, Sri Lanka and Portugal, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, all in the last 5 years! And with airbnb I can keep learning of people and places even if it is from the comfort of my living room or kitchen. As they say " kitchen is the heart of a home".
I am happy to share my home and have lots of handy tips for you to make the most of your time and budget.
I invite you to come and stay with me in my comfortable London Victorian Terraced home that is directly opposite a big park and well connected to all parts of the city. Please feel free to ask me any questions, practical or fun, to get the most out of your visit before and during your stay.
