The space
ACCOMMODATION
A gorgeous modern self contained private suite within our Victorian house with its own entrance and cute back garden. The suite 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 private suite 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, down three steps, across the decking and into the suite though the double doors (and two more steps). 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 white towels.

RATES
The room rate advertised applies to 2 people sharing the kingsize bed. If required, an additional bed for a charge of £25 per night could be provided in the lounge area. It's a Jay-Be Royal Pocket Comfort Folding Guest Bed. Please email me for more details to see what works best for you.

Generally there is a minimum booking of 6 nights, however, depending on availability, the time of the year and week shorter stays might be considered. Please drop me a message.

Music system to link your laptop or iPod to (includes speakers in each room including the shower room)

Free UK mobile for your use for the duration of your stay
Dishwasher

Central heating
Complementary chilled wine and beer in the fridge and croissants, coffee, tea, cereals, OJ and a bowl of fruit for breakfast.

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 like dogs, otherwise he stays away upstairs from the suite.


ON HAND TO HELP
I am happy to be available as and when guests would like. Some guests like to be independent but I am happy to share a glass of wine and I am usually on hand to help with anything, from recommending local restaurants to helping plan trips in the city.

OVERVIEW OF THE AREA
The area is a real London neighbourhood. We live on a cute Victorian terrace street. It's a very friendly street, where most people know each other and has an active residents association.
Walk, literally, just round the corner and we're a few minutes away from lots of shops and very convenient bus routes into town, going past many iconic London sights on the way.

There are tennis courts, a recently renovated (£8m) park and a gym nearby plus a vibrant local market, restaurants and many very handy shops just round the corner.

GETTING AROUND
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.
- Trafalgar Square, 20 mins
- Covent Garden, 15 mins
- Parliament/London Eye, 15 mins
- Liverpool Street/Shoreditch, 15 mins
- Borough Market, 10 mins

- Hyde Park/Knightsbridge, 25 mins
We are an 8 minute walk from Kennington tube, and 10 minutes walk from Elephant and Castle tube station (zone 1).

Please let me know if you have any questions and we hope to welcome you to London and the apartment soon!

Recent reviews from new listing of the apartment:

"This flat was exactly what it looked like in the ad: a gorgeous and cosy apartment with a lot of personality and clever solutions. This was my family's first Airbnb experience, and coming hosts and places have a lot to live up to. Mike is friendly and quick to respond, gave excellent info before our trip and there was a great and fully updated guide book to the area in the flat. There were also Oyster cards, umbrellas, adapters etc - even fruit, beer, juice and wine in the fridge. For an additional cost he put in an extra bed for our kid, and the flat was still spacey compared to most hotel rooms we would get for the same price in London. Literally just round the corner: bus stops that take you in to central London in no time, a supermarket and a nice (and cheap) Italian restaurant - and then there's great fish'n'chips at Ocean Fish Bar and excellent full English breakfasts at Amore and Star café for no money at all just a few minutes away. I would totally recommend this flat to anyone thinking of going to London!"

"We recommend staying at Mike's flat when in London. He is a truly thoughtful host. From having a welcoming book full of information, a couple of oyster cards to get you started, and many other details to make you feel at home while you are away from home. It is quite cozy, comfortable, and close to so many amenities and tourist sites. And as a host, Mike was great and easy to work with. You never feel abandoned as he is great with commutation and responds quickly. Take a chance on this cozy flat and you will enjoy it!!"
Scott, October 2019

"Mike’s place is calm and well located to visit London. It has all you need and Mike is always available to answer any questions. I totally recommend it."

Hi, Mike here. I've lived on my friendly, traditional Victorian London street since 2002 and really enjoy hosting guests. I aim to make sure that our Airbnb guests have a wonderful time and anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable I will do my very best to accommodate. (Please have a look at the reviews on my new listing of this apartment, I've cut & paste a few of them into the bottom of the old listing, as this shows up in searches more, hence you're likely to see this before the new listing a.t.m.)
