A gorgeous modern self contained apartment within our Victorian house with its own entrance and cute back garden. The apartment is extremely well located for many tourist areas of London and the local daily markets and shops, including a great 24/7 grocery/deli just 2 minutes away.
The apartment is within an 1870's house, but has a modern very characterful design, making full use of the space. You enter through the side gate, walk through the garden across the decking and into the apartment though the double doors. It's has a lovely cosy atmosphere and is a real den to escape to.
The first space you come to is the lounge with lots of very comfortable large bean bags and cushions. The small kitchen area is off to one side and includes all the regular kitchen appliances including a microwave, dishwasher and two ring hob. Through the arch (which has a sliding door) is the large double bedroom with ensuite shower/wet room with lots of mirrors. There is a very comfortable Kaymed king size bed with lovely white Egyptian cotton bedlinen. We supply plenty of fluffy white towels.
The room rate advertised applies for 3 people. 2 people sharing the kingsize bed plus the additional good double Jay-Be Royal Pocket Comfort Folding Guest Bed for the 3rd person in the lounge area.
Generally there is a minimum booking of 5 nights, however, depending on availability, the time of the year and week shorter stays might be considered. Please drop me an email.

I have a cute, well behaved, friendly little dog called Jarvis (he's a Border Terrier), but he'll only come and say hello if you all like dogs, otherwise he stays in his house just upstairs from the apartment.
As well as Kennington and Elephant & Castle Underground tube stations, the apartment is very well served for buses to almost anywhere in London. They're a great way to get around and see things on the way, especially the fabulous views over the river.

To be considerate with noise and to leave the apartment in the same condition it is found in. This is a non-smoking apartment.
The basement apartment is usually separated from the rest of the house and has its own entrance via the back garden. However, if a guest would like to be a part of the rest of the house then it can be connected internally.
Guest parking permits can be purchased, although public transport (tube and buses) are excellent here.
There is a very well behaved and friendly small young dog that lives in the house and shares the little garden called Jarvis.
ID (e.g. passport) may be requested on arrival.
Check-in is usually any time after 3pm (to give us time to clean the apartment). Check-out is by 12 noon. There is some flexibility depending on other guests and a later checkout may be feasible, please ask.
It would be useful if you could please let us know what time you are likely to arrive and for any details about your flight number in case it is delayed. Many thanks.
The apartment was really nice, clean and perfectly located in London. Mike was welcoming, he bought some food, drinks before our arrival, it was really kind.
I advice everyone to take this apartment, you won't be disappointed !!
Thank you Mike !!!
Mike is a very friendly and helpful host and made my family feel incredibly welcome. The stay was even more pleasant and easy than I thought it could be and Mike made sure that my parents every need was met during their stay. There were Oysters ready for travel, adaptors for plugs, leaflets with information of London and the immediate area and so much more... even croissants, wine and fruit. The back garden is beautiful and we had a lovely breakfast there with the whole family on one of the mornings. The apartment is incredibly close to a lot of buses while still being away on a quiet street. All in all great experience and I thoroughly recommend!
My friends and I had an amazing few days in London. We were so pleased with the apartment. It was a warm and cozy retreat after long days spent out in the city. We were especially happy with the thoughtful details such as oyster cards and extra umbrellas! None of it went unnoticed or unappreciated! A huge thank you to Mike for being the perfect host!
Our stay at Mike's apartment was perfect. Comfortable, nice and clean, all the amenities needed for overseas travelers were available. Mike is very welcoming and generous with good advice for us who knew little about the city. Thank you Mike!
