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.

Warm and cosy welcome and accommodation to match! Kathryn and Ben were great hosts making us feel very welcome and the room and en-suite were both attractive and clean. Close to transport links in quiet location - we would definitely recommend it to anyone needing to stay close to attractions in London.
Excellent access to subway (5 min walk) and easy 30 min walk to downtown. Be sure to do a (website hidden) street view walk from the Kennington subway station to Marsland Close so you know what the route looks like.
Bedroom with own bath is very large and bed is super comfortable. Micro-sink in bathroom has no mirror above it which can make shaving a little tricky and tub is better suited to baths than showers.
Good location near underground. I and my little son used nice bed with its own bathroom. warm and comfortable. mostly spend time outside but still, once we come back home, feels so comfortable!!
Kathryn is a very nice and warm host who made sure I felt very welcome in her house. The house is within walking distance to many London attractions and easy to get to and from. I can recommend a stay.
The bedroom and en-suite were lovely (the shower in particular was fabulous). The kitchen was lovely and well equipped. Kathryn provided us with cereals, bread, spreads, coffee and tea. The underground station was about 10 minute walk from the house, which made it easy to get around.
I foolishly assumed that I would be able to find the house using (website hidden) maps, but ended up walking around the estate for about 30 minutes. So make sure you follow Kathryn's instructions and have her phone number on your mobile phone just in case you get lost!
Kathryn is a terrific host and a wonderful person! I had a great time at her place exploring London by day and chatting and drinking with Kathryn and her roommate at night. As a solo traveler, their hospitality and kindness made London a terrific experience for me. Also, Kathryn's home is lovely and the private room is spacious with a terrific tub and a brand new bed that is incredibly comfortable...what more could you ask for after walking around all day exploring London? I highly recommend staying at Kathryn's place!
Kathryn is a great host with a fantastic private bedroom - upon arrival we sat around and chatted like we were old friends. We received insider Londoner tips, which made our short holiday even more enjoyable. Although it's a ten minute walk to the nearest tube stop on the Northern line (which isn't that bad but with bags it's a little trek!), I would wholeheartedly recommend Kathryn's place to anyone visiting London.
We had a really nice stay at Kathryn's for New Year's Eve. The room was exactly as shown in the pictures, big and very comfortable. We had a lot of space and it is very practical to have your own bathroom ! The house as a whole is lovely, and our hosts were really nice. We really enjoyed talking with Ben & Kathryn, who also gave us a lot of tips on restaurants where to go, or on transportation in London. The location is perfect for a weekend, you can really get anywhere in London very easily thanks to the underground and the numerous buses.
Nice cosy room. I was expecting it to be within walking distance or with a view of Big Ben as advertised but this is not the case.
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.
