Beautiful, convenient place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in October. It was a great experience. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive but not intrusive. They gave us lots of good advice regarding transportation and getting around. The apartment itself was also wonderful and very nice decorated. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. There are two grocery stores within walking distance. We were able to cook most of our own meals easily. The bathroom has on demand hot water which was awesome! The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable.

The location is perfect. It is right near the tube and several buses. You can also walk to a lot of attractions if you don't mind walking more than a mile or so. There are also a few nice restaurants right near the apartment. We highly recommend Kennington Tandoori. It puts Indian restaurants in the US to shame!

The owners were very responsive to our needs. We had a few chilly days and they promptly turned the heat on for us, which we were very happy about!

The only thing we didn't like was the construction noise across the street. There is an extension being built for the North Line. It wasn't horribly loud, but it did wake us up most mornings. I don't think this is going to be a long term problem. It will probably be a benefit in the future since there will be a tube station right across from the apartment.

Overall, we highly recommend this apartment! Thank you to the owners for helping us have an awesome trip to London!

Owner's Response: So nice to read this review and just to add the work is for a vent and not a station on our green.

Well Equipped & Good London Value

  • 5 of 5

It's always difficult to know if the place you're renting online will live up the photos, description, and other reviews, but in this case the answer is a resounding "yes." Our family of three (two adults, one teen) stayed at this property for 9 days and we would happily stay there again. An excellent value for the money, we felt we had ample room in a comfortable space that was well outfitted with what we needed.

The apartment was generally very clean (there were a few stray crumbs in the kitchen, but otherwise the place was spotless) and pleasant, and provided us with an nice home base from which to explore London and environs. Having a washing machine in the apartment was very handy and allowed us to travel light.

The kitchen had all the necessary pans and dishes, as well as a few staple items like olive oil, sugar, and the like. We cooked some of our own meals and were happy to have an oven, four burners, and a microwave. A full Tesco grocery store is located a few blocks away,

The bathroom has a tub/shower combo with outstanding water pressure. A full length shelf along one side of the room is very handy for keeping toiletries, and the hair dryer provided meant that we didn't need to bring one. Towels were provided, and there was a new bar of face soap.

The living area features french doors that open out onto a stone patio, a large & comfortable couch, two other chairs, and a large television. The bedrooms (one double, one single) had comfortable beds and good wardrobe/dresser space; we could unpack fully.

There are plenty of nearby restaurants and shops. The apartment is about a 10-minute walk from both the Kennington and Oval tube stops, both on the Northern line. We used the tube every day, and enjoyed cutting through Cleaver Square to get to the Kennington station.

Currently there is a large construction project right across the street from the Bowling Hall, but do not be put off by that. We were concerned that the construction would wake us up early, but found that once inside the apartment, there is little noise from the street; we weren't bothered at all.

The owners were not at home during our stay, but the woman who stayed there to look after things was delightful and very helpful. My only very minor quibble with our entire experience was waiting for a response from the owner to some questions I had before our arrival. The delayed response was a bit disconcerting to us, but all was fine in the end.

Overall, a great experience!

Owner's Response: I apologise but had to deal with a medical emergency abroad in France prior to this guests arrival! We have also provided an information booklet that contains information about the area etc. Glad it all worked out. Katherine

A wonderful and a nice homey place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week and everything was perfect, the owners are welcoming, Katherine has been very generous and helpful in many ways.

We found everything we needed in the apartment, and outside, a supermarket just near by, indian restaurants and takeaways.

We parked next to the apartment, not expensive and out of the congestion zone.

Old Vic and Young Vic theatre, by walk.

Very convenient place to visit London, not far from Tate Museums, Westminster, Borough Market, The Globe…

We felt like home and we hope to come back soon !

Thank you Katherine and see you soon…

Bright, sunny and convenient... great value!

  • 4 of 5

I had a wonderful stay here while visiting for the Rugby World Cup. Katherine was very accommodating and flexible, and made our stay very simple and easy. The property was clean and made up. All rooms receive lots of natural light and the living area is spacious and warm. The location is near perfect; around the corner are a number of cafes and restaurants, and the Kennington station is just a few minutes walk and gets you right into central London in minutes. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it. Great value for the money!

OK but....

  • 3 of 5

Positives: Location convenient to attractions. Owners/hosts were friendly. Layout and amenities were nice and as described.

Negatives: (I hate this part) but the place was not clean. The kitchen floor was sticky and stove had crumbs. Don't believe the pillow cases in one bedroom had not been changed (smell of sweat) be fair, the other bed and bedroom was absolutely clean. Toilet dirty. Bath towels, while clean, were stained as if used as painting rag. Again, to be fair, had the owners been home (they were in India until our last day) I suspect the place would have been clean. Unfortunately, their 20-something son was in charge. (And to add insult to injury, we were still charged a cleaning fee).

Owner's Response: To be fair I told the guests I would be away and my son would be managing while we were on our summer holiday. He has been in charge before but was also starting his MA! He did ask the guests if everything was fine and was told it was ok but would have been happy to put anything right if they had asked at the time. I would also like to respond to this review by saying that the booking was made for 2 persons, so the other bedroom had not been made up as he assumed the single would not be used. I also spoke with the guests when I arrived back to see if they had all they needed. Happy to say I have now re mopped the kitchen floor and it is super shiny! It may have been the wood varnish that can sometimes stick to rubber soles!

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our ten day stay was so enjoyable and comfortable in Katherine's lovely flat. The location was only a 5-10 minute walk from the bus stop or the Underground. We had no trouble at all navigating our way to all points around the city. The Kennington neighborhood was safe and we enjoyed the local restaurants and pubs during our visit. The only challenge we faced was finding the apartment on our arrival day. The street address is not easy to locate. Take the Underground (Tube) to the Oval Station on the Northern line, turn left on Kennington Park Road as you exit onto that road from the Tube, walk until you reach Kennington Road and turn left. As you walk down Kennington Road, the flat is straight ahead of you next to Tony's Cafe.
