About the Area

For restaurants, there are several Indian restuarants on Kennington Road as well as a Pizza Express, Pizza Hut, a Chinese Restaurant, 2 new Japanese restaurants several coffee shops, a Fish and chips shop, a couple of good pubs that also serve food.

    Michael is a great host, and the apartment is at a very convenient location. Communication and the checkin-check-out process was smooth. One thing that would've made my stay a bit better is a lock on the door of the room.

    Michael is an attentive and very supportive host. The location of his appartment is very near to the House of Parlament and bus stations into other central parts of London are near. I' ve enjoyed the time in Michaels flat and I do recommend this homestay.

    Michael hosted me for almost 3 months. He is welcoming and respectful. The flat is clean and functional. I recommend this host!

    Michael is a very calm and helpful person. He is very low-key and quite housekeeping.

    He has a small two-storey flat, you can't hear the neighbours. For me the downside to the room was the non-dark curtains and creaking stairs.

    The area is busy and it can be noisy outside at night. Otherwise a very convenient location for a trip to the city centre!

    Michael was an adorable host, sensitive and careful. He showed me nice spots around and had lots of stories and knowledge about London. He was also helpful and supportive during my stay.
    Thank you so much Michael!

    Le logement était bien situé, la résidence était sûr. Pour ce qui est du séjour qui a duré 3 semaines pour ma part, j'ai pu vivre dans de bonnes conditions mais pour ce qui est de la relation avec Michael je m'attendais à mieux. Nous n'avons rien partagé malgré plusieurs tentatives de ma part. J'aurais aimé avoir plus d'interactions avec Michael c'est dommage car il a l'air sympathique.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
