Antonia was a great host! I enjoyed living at her apartment. It was like bunking in with a friend. She was very friendly and advised us on where to go and even where to eat! Places that me and my boyfriend would have never been if it weren't for her. Her apartment is conveniently located being 4 minutes away from the tube. On our first day, she walked with us to London Bridge so that we got our bearings right. We didn't even realise how close we were to all attractions until she took the liberty to show us! Her dog was like icing on top of the cake. A very lovely and friendly dog that you just want to hug to bits! I am coming back in November for a cousin's wedding and I am definitely going back again! I recommend anyone who wants a truly unique and homely experience to go for Antonia's apartment
I was visiting London with my daughter for 4 days and for us this was the perfect location: close to all the attractions (~ 10 min walk from Big Ben, Tube and Bus stations just around the corner), cozy and clean room, and - most important - with Antonia we had a very friendly and caring host, who gave us lots of tips and helpful additional information. In addition the infrastructure in Kennington is good (restaurants, grocery store, post office etc. all in walking distance). I can definitely recommend to stay with Antonia.
I stayed with Antonia for three nights with my mother over Easter and we had such a lovely experience! Our room was beautiful and cozy (and exactly like pictured in the photos). We immediately felt at home. Antonia welcomed us with tea and water upon arrival and gave us great tips where to go and what to do during our stay, which was very helpful especially during the holidays. The location itself is really central: it's a walking distance from an underground station and bus station (which is great when you want to see a little bit more of the neighborhood). Antonia is a wonderful host, I recommend anyone to stay with her and her adorable dog (+puppies at the moment) in her lovely apartment!
Very helpful and communicative host, very nice and clean room. Perfectly situated flat to explore the city of London. Biba, the little dog is very nice and friendly too. I'll be back again.
Antonia is a very nice and kind person, who really cares about her guests. When we had questions she was always very helpful, we had a really good time staying at her place. On our last day she even woke up at 4am just to say goodbye.
The rooms were very clean and tidy and the breakfast was tasty, Antonia offers a great variety of food. The pancakes she made on sunday were very yummy!
Her pregnant dog is so cute he wants to be petted like a cat.
Me and my husband can recommend staying at Antonia's to anyone.
Antonia ist eine sehr nette und freundliche Person, die sich wirklich um ihre Gäste kümmert. Wenn wir Fragen hatten war sie immer sehr hilfsbereit, kurz: wir hatten eine richtige gute Zeit bei ihr. An unserem letzten Tag ist sie sogar extra um 4 Uhr morgens aufgestanden, nur um sich von uns verabschieden zu können.
Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und ordentlich und das Frühstück war lecker, Antonia bietet eine große Auswahl an Nahrungsmitteln. Die Pancakes, die sie am Sonntag für uns gemacht hat, waren sehr lecker!
Ihr schwangerer Hund war wirklich süß und wollte wie eine Katze gestreichelt werden.
Mein Mann und ich können einen Aufenthalt bei Antonia wirklich jedem empfehlen.
I stayed in the flat for six nights. Everything was as advertised: great location, clean, good kitchen access and Antonia is incredibly helpful in offering suggestions to maximize your London stay without breaking the bank. She can also offer very sound advice on how to avoid unwanted headaches that are part of large city life.
Antonia est très accueillante elle nous a aidé dans nos réservations de restaurant n'hésitant pas à téléphoner elle même . Elle nous a très bien reçu. L'appartement est très bien situé et très confortable, proche des transports mais il est aussi possible d'accéder rapidement à pied à différents sites touristiques Antonia fait tout ce qui est possible pour qu'on se sente bien chez elle . Si nous retournons à Londres ce sera avec plaisir que nous la recontacterons

Experiences to cherish
Barcelona Spain - drinking sherry eating slithers of cured wild boar eating off barrels in a tiny hole in the wall with fisher men sipping cava 5pm midweek.
skiing in Zermatt with my boyfriend and coming across a sledge being pulled by couple huskies followed by their frolicking puppies on a wonderful clear sunny out for an afternoon.
Climbing a mountain in the dark to see the volcanos on Stromboli Italy.
getting lost in George Town Washington looking at doors.
diving for sea urchins off a surfboard with a plastic bag of lemons with some friends in Greece, that was a great lunch.
I am a happy relaxed person who lives for good conversation, beautiful surroundings and creative inspirations.
