I'd like to thank Alex for giving us the opportunity to experience London in it's natural way. The appartment was very cozy. It was clean an just like you see it in the pictures. The surrounding is quiet and typical british :) Only the mattresses take getting used to. Everything else was wonderful. Thanks a lot!!!

Alex’s house is very well placed in a lovely terraced street in Kennington only a short and easy walk from the Oval tube station. It was well placed for local shops and good places to eat. Public transport links were great but we also enjoyed exploring the area on foot, and walked from the house over the river to the Tate and beyond without any difficulty. The house comfortably accommodated the 5 of us and was just as described; with 3 bedrooms, a sunny kitchen for lazy breakfasts, a wonderful living room full of books and artwork and plants, a green and sunny balcony and both a large bathroom and separate shower-room. The home is full of character and curios gathered from travels, which fascinated and charmed us in equal measure! We felt lucky to have been able to spend our time in London here and appreciative of the attention given to ensuring our stay was easy and as comfortable as possible. This is one of the most homely and welcoming houses I’ve been lucky enough to find through Airbnb and Alex was a very kind and generous host. We’d happily recommend the house to other travellers looking for something a little bit special.

A well connected spacious apartment in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood. Just 2 minutes walk to Oval tube station and buses, 10 minute cab ride to Victoria station. The apartment design combines warm home atmosphere with museum-like curiosities, resulting in a place that is both fun and cosy. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a big living room; a lovely balcony with greenery, bees and a view too. If you are looking for big and comfortable place to stay in London, I would definitely recommend you to stay at Alex's flat.

My best experience on Airbnb, Alex house is not a place for sleeping while on holiday but a way to feel at home when traveling. He is kind and cooperative. Highly recommended. Kensington area is wonderful and Alex house is literally at walking distance from Oval station. A special thank to a special host
