Hello, my name's Nicholas, I love to travel (who doesn't?) and I am lucky enough to make my living out of it – by being a travel journalist and renting out two holiday apartments in the house I share with my Civil Partner Ben and our dog Barney.
I love gardening too and if you stay you'll probably see me weeding or maybe tending the chickens who live in an 'eglu' at the bottom of the garden.
I believe London is one of the world's greatest cities, so if you've got a question about the capital, don't hesitate to ask.
Unusually for an Englishman I like foreign languages too, and can speak good Spanish, OK German and a bit of French.
Nicholas Kynaston purchased this apartment in 2006
The moment we saw the house, we fell in love with it. It is one of the oldest in area , having been built in 1790 as the vicarage for the local church of Saint Andrews. Stockwell is central but not touristy - it takes just 8 minutes by tube to reach Victoria. It's a multicultural neighbourhood that we are proud to live in and is close to the vibrant districts of Vauxhall, Brixton and Clapham.
Large windows flood it with light and the 30-metre (100 ft) back garden is unusual in London for being such a good size. When we moved in, the house was in a sorry state, dilapidated and having been used as a squat. We've now restored it to its former glory uncovering marble fireplaces that had been painted over with white paint and lovely wooden floor boards in the process. We love living here and we love having guests to stay.
Had a great time staying here, owners were awesome and very welcoming. About 8 minute walk from tube. At first surrounding do not look great but area its safe! Stayes with the whole family 4 adults and 3 (1 toddler)kids and we fit confortably. Learning how to work the shower temperature was a challange a the begining but once you do it a few times it works great. Everything was super clean! Overall a great place to stay. Thank you guys!!
My wife, teenage children and I, along with my mother in law, stayed for five nights in the top floor apartment. Great transportation options. The apartment is only a 5-10 minute walk to several underground stops, and we were quickly in the city each day. The 88 bus was also very useful. Nick and his partner were very helpful, and we enjoyed having a spacious and well-equipped space to relax in. The small supermarket across the street was perfect for getting food for breakfast or other meals. A great experience overall.
Bel appartement dans la maison des propriétaires. Cuisine bien équipée. Literie confortable.
Les propriétaires sont très accueillant, très avenants. Le quartier est très calme, pas de nuisance
sonore. A proximité, une supérette et le métro à 5 minutes. Idéal pour visiter Londres en famille.
Je vous le conseille vivement.
Unsere Familie (zwei Erwachsene, drei Mädchen: 6, 12 und 13 Jahre plus Hund) fühlten sich vom ersten bis zum letzten Moment an willkommen. Wir bliebe drei Tage, und lernten Nick und Ben als sehr herzliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber kennen, die ihre gute Laune auch behalten, wenn ihr Haus und der wunderschöne Garten voller Kinder sind. Dieser unkomplizierte Familienanschluss ist wirklich besonders. Wir empfehlen das Haus aber auch, wenn man eher "unter sich" bleiben möchte. Für uns eine wunderschöne Urlaubserfahrung, die wir eigentlich nicht gerne verraten möchten!
Nous avons reçu un accueil chaleureux de la part de notre hôte Nicholas, qui a su être disponible pour nous renseigner à notre arrivée et au cours de notre séjour : la maison est charmante, située dans un quartier londonien typique, calme et fonctionnel (supérette en face, restaurants et transports en commun à proximité). L'appartement que nous avions réservé au dernier étage est confortable et meublé avec goût ; il donne en partie sur un luxuriant jardin que notre hôte a eu la gentillesse de nous faire visiter, en compagnie de son adorable chien !
Nous nous sommes sentis "comme chez nous" et c'est une location que je recommande, car l'accueil de qualité fait vraiment toute la différence !
We are located in Stockwell, an up-and-coming area of London and to reach the West End and City of London, takes just 5 minutes from our local tube (metro) station. We are opposite a small supermarket and have l great local pub as well as an organic bakery and sewing cafe in the area. The trendy 'hipster' area of Brixton is a five-minute walk away, as is bustling Clapham High Street, which is home to over 20 restaurants.
Five minutes walk from us is the district of Clapham with its high street containing over 20 restaurants and pubs.
Brixton, one of London's new trendy areas is 5-minutes walk the other way. Here you'll find Brixton Village, a Victorian former market hall that's' been turned into a must-visit destination with a couple of dozen restaurants, bars and vintage shops packed into its colonnades. And there's Pop Brixton, a fantastic new venture that showcases street food from around the world along with cute vintage shops in a complex made of sea containers with a central seating area where you can listen to live bands and some great djs.
