About this listing
Our bright, beautiful, secure, fully furnished, Victorian purpose built 2 bedroom flat is on a quiet residential street in the central London neighborhood of Elephant & Castle (zone 1). A 2 minute walk from tons of buses and the Underground (Bakerloo & Northern Lines.)
The bedroom available is fully furnished and has plenty of storage: drawers under the bed, mirrored closet, chest of drawers, and a bedside table. Please note that it is a small room, though. It's best suited for a single traveler, but two people can sleep in it.
The flat gets a ton of natural light throughout the day. All rooms have big windows. There is a separate eat-in kitchen w/ washing machine and a modern bathroom with bath. Comfortable living room with two couches and a 40" flatscreen smart TV.

Interaction with guests
It's very conveniently located: 3 minutes to the E&C Shopping Center and 15 minutes by foot to Waterloo station. A 6-8 minute walk from one of the most delicious permanent food markets in London - called Mercato Metropolitano. Within 20 minutes you can walk to Borough Market, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, BFI Southbank, Westminster and the houses of Parliament / Big Ben, the Thames water front, the London Eye, Tower of London and a little further to the Tower Bridge and many other destinations. Also walking distance to City and West End. Easy access by bus to Shoreditch, Hackney, Hoxton, Victoria Park and the East End.
Other things to note
A couple currently lives in the main bedroom, and we both occasionally work from home but also can have erratic work schedules. We are often around in the evenings, though we also are out and/or away quite a bit.
The flat is best suited for people who plan to come, be out a lot, and explore London as travellers, because you will have an extremely convenient home base.
No outside shoes in the flat.

Hey All - Been using Airbnb since 2013 to rent out my spaces in NYC and London, U.K. Have traveled and stayed at quite a few Airbnb spaces over these last few years. Some of my favorite travel destinations are Australia, New Zealand, Western deserts of the United States, Mexico City, Los Angeles and California coast, Berlin and Stockholm.
