Hi there :)
I am a 35 year old Scottish firefighter who loves to travel and try new things. I love meeting new people and air BNB has been an excellent experience.

We loved Kathryn's place in a very quiet location 5 minutes from Kennington underground station.
The bedroom and bathroom were brand new and the neighbourhood really quiet but for a few planes in the morning.
It's a pity we didn't have a chance to see our host to tell her we have really enjoyed our stay.
We had a very nice stay at Kathryn's house an enjoyed our trip to London.
The room is exactly like the picture and very comfortable, same with bathroom and kitchen. Furthermore it is just a 5-minute-walk to the next tube station - perfect!
This is a little jewel in London close to the main sights. Very clean and a wonderful host!! Our bedroom was very comfortable and the bathtub felt like heaven after a long day of walking. Will definitely come back here if I ever come back to London
I had a plesant stay in Katheryn's home. I didn't get to meet her, but she was very nice and easy to contact. I also met a friend of her's which was very sweet. The house is in a very conveniant place, it's in a calm and peaceful neighberhood but very near the tube station and bus stations and only a few minuted from the centre! My room was very clean and nice, the tv didn't work but I didn't really need it anyway. If she has other guests you will have to share the bathroom with other people and the first day I arrived it wasn't very clean I must say(not really her fault but of the other guests that weren't very considerate of the fact that other people were going to use the same bathroom). But the day after someone arrived and cleaned it perfectly so I was very impressed :) I'm sure I'll go back there next time I'm in London!
very quiet neighbourhood yet extremely close to central London (2.5km or 1-2 tube stops). Lovely house, tidy and clean. The room was okay, bit noisy from upstairs guests because of creaky floors but that's to be expected in this type of house.
The bed was clearly used mostly by one person and too soft for our taste, but that's personal.
In the end we met Ben who's room we occupied, Petra and Kathryn as well.
All communications with Kathryn went smoothly (although she missed one message on airBNB but that was resolved later and no issue).
She even rushed home on the last day hoping our radioHAM station was still in operation, unfortunately we had packed already. Better luck next time.
The included breakfast was well catered for.
We will certainly be back but will probably try and get one of her upstairs rooms that time round.
Kathryn's home is very modern and cozy. I found everything I needed for my stay. Although I didn't get a chance to meet Kathryn, she was very accessible by phone and very pleasant to deal with. The location is very convenient, only a couple of minutes from the tube. The home is in a peaceful area. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there!
I had a good time staying at Kathryn's place while visiting London. The room was bright and clean with neatly folded towels sitting in the bed waiting for the guest. The second story has two bathrooms, so the one in the hallway was not shared as I thought, a nice surprise I was not aware until the guests in an adjacent room left. The instructions for the room were very clear, including how to access WIFI. I did not meet the Kathryrn in person and was amazed at how well she managed the logistics of providing B&B to guests without her presence. I did meet Ben and other guests, including the cleaning lady right before my departure. Everyone were friendly but appeared to be quite busy managing their own hectic schedules--nothing to complain about. Overall, I was happy with my stay and would recommend others to take advantage of the B&B at Kathryn's place.
We had a great time at Kathryn's flat. The location was near bus routes and the tube station. The hospitality was amazing and London overall treated us very well. I would definitely be staying there again when I return.
We really enjoyed our time at Kathryn's flat. The bed was so comfortable, the underground was close by and we felt very "at home" here. A special thank you to Petra who was very pleasant company and shared many of her travel experiences with us. Our experience was very positive and we would recommend staying here to others.
This was the first place we stayed via AirBnB and I was a little nervous traveling all the way to london from LA with this being the first trial run. Petra & Kathryn were perfect hosts and immediately calmed any anxiety I had the minute we met. The place is tricky to find, but it's so close to the tube it more then makes up for it. We spent so much time running around london we didn't hang out at the house very much. However, when we were there, it was nice and chill. We even met another couple from the USA who stayed in the room adjacent to ours. She has over 200 positive reviews via AirBnb for a reason. check it out.
Nice person to spend time with, Kathryn took kiteboarding lessons with us and was a great student.
Though I never met Kathryn, she was lovely to plan with. My friend who was hosting while I was away, said how lovely she was when they first met, and how clean my apartment was when she left. I hope I actually get to meet her one day! She is stellar.
Even though we did not meet in person, Kathryn was a pleasure to have stay in our cottage. Our guest house has it's own private yard and stands alone, so I missed seeing Kathryn as she kept busy discovering all that Sedona and our neighborhood has to offer. She left the cottage clean, and besides the unmade bed, you wouldn't even have known she was here. I highly recommend Kathryn as a guest, and I look forward to (someday) visiting her abode in England!
She stayed in my flat one night she was really good chat friendly clean and tidy.I would love to accom her again.
It was a pleasure to host Kathryn, she is an excellent guest, warm, friendly, relaxed and gave us a valuable insight into her Airbnb experiences. We would be very happy to have her stay with us for weeks and would be very happy to stay with her too.
Couldn't ask for a more fun and terrific guest! We hit it off... and laughed too much!
Kathryn is very friendly and quite a character. She arrived with a bottle of wine and it was fun to chat about a variety of subjects, including our experiences of renting rooms in our homes. She was clean and tidy, even bringing her bedding down when she left. As she is a host herself, she has a good idea of how to be a congenial guest. No hesitation in recommending her.
Lovely host, good house, clean and comfortable. Katrhyn is very kind, gentil and welcoming The new shower is wonderful!
The place is good for its nearby to the tube station Kennington and in 10 minutes by Tube you can reach most of places in London.
Kathryn is a great travel buddy and host! If it comes down to choosing between places to stay, you should stay with Kathryn. You won't regret it! She's fun, inviting, interesting, and likely to become a new friend. Kathryn and I spent several long periods of time together, while under the stress of traveling. Once to the Amazon forest and another while roaming parts of the UK, including her home in London, and parts of the US.
Kathryn and I have been friends for over ten years. We met skydiving in California and our friendship has spanned continents. Over the years, we've spent weeks at a time together in tents, motels and various levels of apartments and homes. Once we crossed country in a car she bought for $50 - turns out she's a decent mechanic!
Kat was raised right. She's a great host and a fabulous, low maintenance guest. She's awesome with kids. I'd highly recommend her as both an Airbnb host and a guest.
Kathryn is interesting, smart, considerate, and has a great sense of humor. She cares about the world and is one of those people that works to make it better. Her style is open, friendly, and supportive. She is adventurous and keeps her word. I would wholeheartedly recommend her.
