Isebail was great as a host, with timely and precise responses to our consultations and questions. No detail was left aside, so we always felt supported during all the process of arriving/staying/leaving London. Worthy information, leaflets and suggestions can also be found in the appartment itself.
Don´t expect a luxurious 300 square meters appartment with a breathtaking view to the Thames like the one that appears in the film "Matchpoint", but be clear on this: the apartment largely fullfills all the requirements for a nice and problem-less stay in London, I would say ideal for a family or two couples (two comfortable well-equipped bedrooms; full equipped kitchen), taking into account how difficult and expensive a stay in London can be.
With regards to the location, perhaps someone can have an issue with the 25 minutes or even a bit more ride to the main turistic attractions by bus, but on the overall the area of Elephant and Castle is well connected by bus and then by the tube. On our personal perspective, we loved the ride on the top level of the two-floor typical London buses!
To sum up, I do recommend Isebail as a host and the apartment on Bethwin Road as a whole.
We stayed 3 nights in Isebail's place in the first day of October 2014.
The flat is very clean and fully furnished you just have to bring a luggage with your clothes!
I would like to thank you for th beautiful accommodation and for the good position , very near ther's a bus stop to connecti to main attractions or to reach the subway station.
I'll probably stay there again if i come back to London one day.
This was the first time I used Airbnb and everything was perfect.
Isebail is a great host and she is very kind and helpful and makes the things easier, always reachable for anything you need.
The flat is large and comfortable (we were 5 adults and a baby) and well connected to the city center by bus (one minute away form the bus stop). The neighborhood is quite peaceful (not the main road, Camberwell road) and safe.
Thank you Isebail!
Isebail's apartment is really nice and she couldn't have been more helpful as regards accommodating flexible numbers etc.(We needed beds for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of double that as some of our daughters who live in distant parts of London were staying over). We were sorry not to meet her in person as she was very nice by email. The colourful apartment is cosy, clean and comfortable, and well equipped. Plenty of coffee shops in the area, a lovely park (big fan of parks), and excellent bus and tube connections to the centre, river, restaurants, theatres. We had a lovely day out in Hampton Court Palace gardens strolling amongst the cherry blossoms and daffodils. Thanks a million Isebail!
Excellente situation avec un arrêt de bus a 1 minute a pieds.
Appartement agréable avec quand même un petit bémol : simples stores pas top en été avec une lumière bien présente.
Appartement très fonctionnel et pratique en rez de chaussée.
Merci a isebail (n'hésitez pas a demander au club de tennis a cote pour la remise des clefs si besoin)
Sinon tout est PARFAIT
Nous avons passé un bon séjour à Londres. L'appartement d'Isabail est très bien situé par rapport aux transports pour aller dans le centre de Londres, assez calme. Un seul petit bémol, on a loué pour cinq, il n’y a que quatre chaises pour manger, donc toute la semaine mon mari a mangé accroupi, mais bon pas très grave. Très fonctionnel et merci pour les épices.
Isebail was a very accommodating host. She responded quickly to every message. Although we didn't meet Isebail in person, even her friend who welcomed us was really nice and friendly. Isebail's flat was very comfortable, quiet, clean, wide and well equipped. The kitchen had all that we needed. It is quite spacious. The bus stop is located really closed to the flat and the City is reachable in 20 minutes. The neighbourhood was quiet and there are markets near too. We had a comfortable stay at Isebail's place and we can thoroughly recommend Isebeil to other travelers.

I am a self-employed social entrepreneur working in entrepreneurship and development and work in the UK and Africa so I travel to Ghana once or twice a year and the flat is available when I am away for work and I rent out the other room in the flat when I am here.
I have been living in London for eight years and I love it here, I am originally from a small island off the west coast of Scotland and travel back there a few times a year to see my family.
I play tennis as much as possible in Burgess Park which is just across the road from my flat (you can borrow one of my tennis rackets if you want to play).
I read, go to cinema, eat out, cook in and do the normal things that most people do!
I like people so I am happy to have visitors in my home.
