The flat is a lovely, cosy and light flat with two bedrooms near Herne Hill, Brixton and Dulwich.
The flat is light and airy on the second floor, has original wooden floors throughout and a bo-ho feel. The flat has also been recently redecorated, and the kitchen and bathroom are both new. The kitchen is open plan to the lounge and there is a dining table with 5 chairs that guests enjoy using for mealtimes and also just sitting, relaxing or reseaching on the internet for interesting places to go in London.
There is wifi in the flat and I also leave a laptop in the reception room for guests to use freely during their stay.
I occupy one of the bedrooms, and the guest bedroom is a comfy double room at the back of the flat, with two windows both overlooking the rooftops of London and the gardens and trees below. The room is quiet and private as it is seperated from the other bedroom, which is a bonus for guests as it provides privacy when needed at the end of a long day sightseeing.
The flat is located about 15 minute walk from Herne Hill which has several nice restuarants, pubs and a beautiful park with a cafe in the middle. It is also a short bus ride to brixton with the tube and all the lively ameneties, pubs and restaurants, including the new and popular Brixton Village with all sorts of small unique and inexpensive restaurants there. In the other direction is gorgeous East Dulwich with its arty market stalls on the weekend, and plenty of pubs or places for brunch.
There are several different ways of getting into central London. From the end of the road, 3 buses go to Brixton where there is the tube - Brixton is on the Victoria line which goes straight into central London. Also at the end of the road are buses straight to London Bridge, where you can walk along the southbank to Waterloo, the London Eye, or in the other direction to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. There is also an overland train which goes North to Kings Cross, the next station is Elephant and castle which is onyl 3 minutes away, and from there you can walk up to the South Bank in 12 minutes.
To help guests with travel plans I provide some drawings of how to get around, as well as use of a large London street map and large tube map, all of which guests have found very useful.
During the week I work Monday to Friday and usually arrive home in the evening around 7pm. Guests are free to use the flat during the day or evening. I really enjoy chatting in the evening & weekends to guests, find out where they have been, and swap travel stories etc. If I have friends over to dinner I'll invite guests along too if they like so they can get to know some local people. It really is a lovely place to stay and I look forward to welcoming you to my home!
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour à Londres!!! Liz s'est rendu tout à fait disponible et nous a bien guidé durant le séjour. Nous étions parfaitement libres et autonomes dans ce merveilleux appartement dans lequel on se sent décidément très bien!!
Merci Liz pour cet accueil.
N'hésitez pas à la contacter si vous décidez de venir séjourner à Londres. Elle est vraiment à recommander!!
My trip was a flying visit, the room was lovely, fresh bed sheets and towels. The flat is great and very homely, well located for the purpose of my visit, but also not far from Loughborough Junction to make your way quickly into the city.
Liz was lovely, very helpful and I would stay again.
Todo genial, un muy buen servicio y la habitación muy limpia.Gracias por todo, Elizabeth es muy amigable y divertida, tiene un trato realmente agradable.
Excelente localização, tão fácil de obter os comboios frequentes de Lougborough Junct para Downtown. Liz é muito descontraído e permite-lhe desfrutar do apartamento e usar o Wi-Fi.
Elizabeth was a perfect host, our room was very nice and she made sure we felt at home. We got breakfast every day and could come and go as we pleased. She was, in our experience, "typically english" - welcoming, friendly, helpful and warm. Thank you so much for letting us stay with you, Liz. We will definitely see if your room is available the next time we come to London!
Wonderful location, only 10 mins from Brixton village, which is busy with life... very relaxed with us staying longer... and really beautiful flat. Thanks Liz...
It`s a very nice place with a very nice person, taking care to her guests, she made breakfast for us, wonderful! The place is next to the station, the room is perfect designed....
Our stay at Liz's place was great. Good location and wonderful room. She gave us good indications to find her house and also the keys (this was especially funny!). Very good breakfast and nice place to stay. Thank you!
This flat is everything the listing says it is -- comfortable, relaxed, and well-located. Elizabeth is a great hostess, very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is lively and interesting, and there is a train station just down the street, so anywhere you want to go in London is only a short walk away. Overall, we would highly recommend Elizabeth and her flat for a great stay in London.
We stayed at Liz's place for 4 nights and it's been really nice. She is a very kind and easy-going person and the bedroom is really comfy.The location is great, 2 min walk to the National rail.
