The flat comprises or a large double bedroom, with a large sitting room with dining facilities there is also a sofa bed to sleep an extra person, and a double blow-up bed can also be provided, as well as a cot if requested.

Guest Access

Guest have full access to the flat and to use it as they would at home with complete privacy.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you like. I always enjoy meeting my guests and having the occasional chat - when they're not busy exploring the city! But I also understand that some guests prefer privacy and seclusion.

The Neighborhood

Lower Marsh was built in the 1820s. Although the apartment block was built in the 1950's Lower marsh and its neighbouring streets of intact Georgian artisans' cottages form a designated conservation area and most of the houses are Grade II listed. So the neighbourhood is a piece of living London history. A number of period dramas for TV and cinema have been filmed here, Lower Marsh is a vibrant street of cafe's a daily market artisan shops and crafts, but also home to some great restaurants and bars as well as the local area "The Cut" The street is quiet but lively, and exceptionally friendly - there are many young families living here as well as people working in all areas of the arts. The famous cafe "Scooter Cafe" is a stones throw away, it's also a bar in the evening and has film nights. Konditor & Cook bakery is nearby, and is a daily temptation that's hard to resist. We are in the heart of the London arts scene, too, with the National Theatre, the Old Vic, and the Young Vic all a very short walk away, as well as the Southbank Centre with its concert halls and art galleries. Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe and Borough Market are also only a twenty-minute walk from the apartment. The immediate vicinity is very colourful and alive with many independent shops as well as pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants, and a good choice of supermarkets. There's an excellent Foyle's bookshop in Waterloo station and another branch on the south bank by the Royal Festival Hall. We have lived here since May 2009 and can't imagine wanting to live anywhere else in London.

Getting Around

We are a three minute walk from Waterloo Station, one of London's major termini. Trains, tubes, buses and taxis abound. You couldn't be better connected. It's also just a twenty minute walk into Covent Garden, over We can't imagine not just wanting to walk everywhere as we are so close to everything here, but in case you need public transport, it doesn't get better. Waterloo Bridge, which most Londoners agree affords the city's most breathtaking views. You can also walk into the West End via the Millennium footbridge right by the Southbank Centre. Waterloo mainline station is moments away with also the "tube" (underground to non natives) and many bus links.

Other Things to Note

Munro House is located on a quiet residential family 1950's built estate. When you get to Waterloo station. Take the Waterloo road Exit and turn right onto Waterloo road towards the Old Vic Theatre. Just before the Old vic (Large White Building on the corner of waterloo road & the Cut) turn right onto Baylis road. Keep right and walk towards Lower Marsh where there are shops and the “Cubana” bar and cafe is on the left corner. Walk down lower marsh, (we can arrange to meet you here on lower marsh by Cubana) there is a left turn onto Frazier street, where you will see “Greenwoods” grocers, turn into Frazier street and a few meters on the right past the garages there is an arch, this is Munro House. Follow the arc around and number r29 is on the first floor, three sets of stairs around the bend.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
