Your staying in a Double room in a shared flat with myself and Anja and a couple of jack russell dogs - Biba and Asa one of her puppies
The room has a super kingsize orthopaedic bed - nice storage for clothes and luggage, feel free to use the kitchen whenever for tea and coffee - you have a small fridge in the room and local shops are across the road and opposite kennington tube station.
lots of care has been taken in thinking about travellers - so the walls are painted green and lime washed to absorb airplane germs, keep out flies and spiders -
the room overlooks a park but is close to road so expect some traffic night sounds with the window closed its quiet, Its central London after all so amazing location
I live in the flat and work in the studio - a cleaner comes 2 -3 times a week
along with Biba my small short haired terrier along with her youngest puppy Assali, who will greet you on arrival a nice welcome -
they don't go into rooms unless invited by guests.

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 beautiful surroundings and creative inspirations.
