A Wonderful Stay in Kennington

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely little flat for 5 nights in September, 2007, and had an excellent time. Simon, the owner of the flat, was very friendly and helpful, and a pleasure to chat with. The studio itself is delightfully decorated and cozy, with a comfy queen sized bed and couch for lounging. The kitchen is bright and cheerful, and is very well stocked with utensils to make cooking meals very easy. The bathroom is a little smaller than expected, but it was all we really needed for our stay.

The walk to the Kennington Tube Station is a breeze, and takes less than 2 minutes to get there. We were in Central London for sightseeing in less than 15 minutes altogether, so the location of Kennington is fantastic!

We walked with ease to the Tesco nearby for groceries, as it was not even a 10 minute walk, and there are numerous restaurants and pubs in the area, many of which Simon was able to recommend to us.

All in All, we had a wonderful stay, and we will definately return for another stay sometime soon!

Wonderful stay at Simon's October 13 - 16, 2016

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Simon's flat. The apartment was even better than the preview pictures. A great location, so close to the tube. Simon greeted us and explained every thing we needed to start our London stay. Pubs, tube stops, a little history of the neighborhood. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants great accommodations, access to public transportation, and a courteous host. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Simon. Joe and Jill M.

Very comfortable and quiet

The property was what we expected and it was in a nice, quiet area a couple minutes from a tube station. Simon was a great host.

Perfect flat, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights at Simon's flat and had a wonderful time. Everything in the flat was as described or pictured except two comfy armchairs rather than a couch. The bed was so comfortable, we slept like babies. The flat was extremely quiet, just the odd squeaky floorboard from above where Simon lives, but we ourselves live in a home where the floorboards squeak a bit! Simon was there to greet us and explain everything about the flat and the area, even recommendations for pubs and grocery stores nearby - and the neighbourhood is great! Lots of dining/pub options and groceries within a few minutes' walk. The only thing we could not figure out was the dishwasher so we just did the few breakfast dishes each morning by hand - no biggie! So handy to have a washing machine right in the flat - very much appreciated. The place was cozy and warm. It is so close to the Kennington tube station that got us to the centre in no time at all, so easy! The flat has a security system which made us feel very secure, but the neighbourhood was nice; at no time of the day or night did we feel unsafe. If we ever visit London again, we would definitely book here again! Thanks again Simon for a great stay!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We can't rate this accommodation high enough. Simon was the perfect host. So convenient to the tube for that short trip into the sights of London.

Flat was spotless and just like the photos. Even had a lovely visit from the lovely little dog Archie .

Thanks Simon will definitely tell all our friends in Oz .

This is a perfectly located flat on a quiet street just around the block from a convenient tube station. The flat was clean, exactly as pictured (beautiful), and Simon was quick to respond to any questions. It's plenty spacious for two people, the kitchen was well equipped, for the price I can't imagine why anyone would want stay in a cramped hotel room instead of this lovely flat. I would definitely book here again.

Kennington lies just south of the Thames and only one and a half miles from the geographical centre of London.

Close to the tourist spots of the South Bank, Borough Market , City and West End. Great transport links with Tube, Bus and Rail. Minutes away is the delightful Clever Square with its traditional English pub which provides an excellent spot to sit on a summers evening and relax. Good local well as the swanky central ones.

Other Activities: Historic and educational
