Brixton is a fantastic area with a vibrant local market including Brixton Village boasting numerous pop-up shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. The historical Ritzy cinema is on the doorstep with mainstream and alternative screenings. As is the Brixton Academy and a myriad of music venues. Brockwell Park is a 10 minute walk away with a lido/swimming pool, tennis courts, fabulous views of the city and lovely picnic spots.

Over the years, I’ve lived all over London. Brixton is my favourite by far. No doubt, you too will have a great time here!

  • Yael was a fantastic host - helpful, efficient, kind. The apartment is beautiful and in an amazing location - so much to explore in Brixton itself and easy to hop on the tube to all of London. A joy to stay there!

  • I had such a wonderful 5 week stay with Yael. She is a fantastic host, welcoming and thoughtful. She went out of her way to help me feel settled and answer all my questions about the area and life in London. Her apartment is really lovely. I felt at home and comfortable there. Her apartment is also in a great location to explore London, with a bus stop just outside the door and Brixton Tube station just 5 mins walk away. The area is really interesting to explore and I felt safe walking home late at night. I would not hesitate recommending her place to anyone. I had a fantastic time and Yael is one of the nicest people I have met. I could not have asked for a better host and place to start my new life in London.

  • I very much enjoyed my stay with Yael. Her flat is very close to the Tube station which was very convenient. The guest room is a good size and the bed comfortable. Yael is a very lovely and gracious host...she is also very helpful with directions and local food and entertainment suggestions. If you wish to stay in the Brixton area Yael's place is a great choice :)

  • This was such a wonderful stay for me and my partner. Yael was a fantastic host to her unique inspiring flat, I only wish we had more time to get to know her.

    Brixton is a fantastic area and with Yaels flat being only a 10 min walk from the tube is was ideal for us traveling around London.

    Yaels extensive knowledge of Londons transport and her local area was a big help as we sampled a fantastic coffee house and burger bar in Brixton Market recommended by her.

    Can't wait to stay here again.

  • A lovely place, and lovely host! Yael very kindly helped me out at short notice and was very willing to make my stay comfortable and convenient despite a glitch in the booking system causing her extra hassle. Thoroughly recommended, and easy transport links etc. Great sunset views of the city too!

  • We loved staying at Yael's! It's a beautiful apartment, very clean and very central with a very comfortable bed.Yael was really sweet. Brixton is an exciting area with lots of places to eat and drink. It was also very easy to get to the city on the tube and there were also a lot of buses. We'll be back!

  • Great place!!! Yael was very kind and help us a lot by suggesting places to visit and by drawing personally maps. The room was very clean and tidy, nice atmosphere and (above all) very clean bathroom. This apt is 7 min walk from the subway and it's in a strategic position. My boyfriend and I will come back for sure!! Thank you Yael!! :-)

  • In English :
    We spent a very nice stay with Yael, who is very nice and friendly. She makes us feel very comfortable.
    And the place of the flat is ideally situated not far from the underground Brixton (on the Victoria Line).
    We felt very confident in Brixton, it is a nice place!

    En français :
    Nous avons passé un très bon moment avec Yaël qui est très sympatique et accueillante! Elle nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise!
    L'appartement est très bien situé à côté du métro Brixton (sur la ligne Victoria). On s'est senti très confiant à Brixton, c'est un endroit sympa !

Hello, my name is Yael. I am an choreographer working on a variety of productions and projects in the UK and abroad. The creative industries are a big part of my life and I'm sure you will see this reflected in the flat! I come from a multitude of countries: Born and grew up in South Africa, immigrated to Toronto, Canada where I lived for 14 years and have lived in the UK since 2000. Travelling has formed a lot of my favourite memories as have my adventures living in London. Should you choose to stay as a guest, I will ensure that you have a comfortable and restful time. Excellent coffee goes without saying, and I'm happy to organise breakfast should you wish. It would be a pleasure to welcome you soon!
