Accommodation Details

Style Notes

Modern London. This newly refurbished residence is set up with visitors in mind, with items to make a stay stress-free and comfortable. The lounge echoes the colors of London buses - scarlet - with a muted gray, the kitchen is modern and the upper floor is sophisticated with gray walls and white bed linen. The kids bedroom includes white bunkbeds. We love the sunny patio garden with flowers and a metal bunny sculpture, and the space, unusual for so central a location, for a family of up to 10 to spread out.

Bev & Jeff were amazing hosts and the property couldn't have been better. They walked us through everything when we arrived and the home is stocked fully and decorated beautifully. Our 18 month old daughter loved it, particularly the train and wooden double-decker bus toys. An easy walk to Stockwell station and plenty of buses at hand for getting around and having a large grocery store nearby made it an easy stay. We hope to stay again.

We had a great stay. Jeff and Bev were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and the place was excellent for four adults and two kids.

Nine Elms, London

Shiny, central and south of the river

Set between Battersea and Vauxhall, Nine Elms is an up-and-coming area south of the Thames. Luxury flats and new developments are springing up along the riverside here, where investments are transforming the area. Take in a game of cricket at The Oval, head to Battersea Park for Go Ape’s treetop adventure ropes course, or take a bus to Tate Britain and the stellar central London attractions of Westminster beyond it.
