  • This was my first time traveling to Europe and at first I was nervous arriving in Kennington, not because it is a bad area, but because I have never traveled alone before. I called Antonia once I arrived at the train station and she came to greet me with open arms and her dog.. it was a perfect way to make me feel right at home. We made dinner together, talked about life, and she explained the history of London and Ska music.. it was awesome! Her apartment was very clean and nice which made me feel extremely comfortable. She made me yogurt parfaits in the morning and bagels with cream cheese as well! Antonia went above and beyond for me and made my first ever Airbnb experience perfect... I will be visiting soon :)

  • Super easy to get around London from this area. Our stay with Antonia could not have been better. Comfortable bed, generous breakfast and available to answer our questions. Antonia was most helpful and caring. We will return to stay again sometime.

  • We had a fantastic time at Antonia's place in London. The apartment is super nice with, great views of the park, lots of light and air. We were lucky to have the apartment for ourselves during the weekend. Antonia was kind enough to meet us before she left and hand over the keys. She was generous with her suggestions for things to do, places to eat etc.
    The location is convenient too, with the tube station only a few minutes from the apartment.
    Thanks Antonia!

  • Antonia prepared lovely breakfast for us every morning complete with tea, truly made us feel at home away from home. Gave us alot of good tips on navigating London and her place is very closed to Metro, we took Metro using Oyster card to get around - really easy. Thank you Antonia for sharing your lovely place, you helped our stay at London a pleasure!!

About
food and art lover - I make public interactive artworks with a Masters at St Martins school of Art Just spent a year on an island in the Greek Aegean region, lived in Switzerland for 4 years and love to travel. I create site specific community art interactive installations, and am passionate about design and all things artisan. 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.
