Another AMAZING experience. Sonia was super nice and very professional, couldn't ask for better really, I highly recommend her services.

David - Bermondsey, Today

Best house cleaner we have had. Brilliant cleaner and lovely also! Real attention to detail

sophie - Brixton, 4 days ago

Audrey does an excellent job, she is very thorough and has provided us with the best clean we’ve had since we moved in.

Hanna - Bermondsey, 1 week ago

Maggie is fantastic! Always such a thorough clean, done quickly and leaves the flat looking amazing. Thank you!

Kate - Battersea, 1 week ago

So efficient and thorough and such a lovely lady! Best clean I've had, through this platform. Cleanliness and attention to detail are so important to me, because of my allergies and young baby. Vidgaile ticks both boxes and I'd happily recommend her to anyone.

L - Battersea, 1 week ago

Sarah was such a ray of sunshine. Super friendly and personable. It was a pleasure to meet Sarah, we had two bad experiences before this, so it was a relief to have someone who cares about what they’re doing and who’s easy to get along with and open to feedback.

A - Elephant and Castle, 2 weeks ago

Excellent clean and super lovely, really pleased with Marie's work and will be using her again.

Susanna Catherine - Brixton, 2 weeks ago

Elizabeth was here on time, she worked hard, got all my glass sparkling and even cleaned the outside of the windows without me having to ask. Thank you

B - Bermondsey, 2 weeks ago

Really pleased with her, we had a few cleaners before her, and she was by far the best. Very thorough :)

Local information about Kennington

Kennington, spanning the London boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, is an attractive residential neighbourhood in South London.

Georgian architecture takes centre stage in the area, with beautiful terraced houses around garden squares. Social housing, some of which is now on the private market, accompany the period houses, ensuring that the property landscape has something for everyone. New-build flats, and some converted flatspace, exist throughout the area too.

For sporting fans, the area is significant as the home of the Oval Cricket Ground. The ground dates back to the nineteenth century and is home to the Surrey county cricket club, as well as frequently hosting international cricket matches. The ground has also hosted important football and rugby matches throughout its time, although it is no longer used for such purposes.

Although Kennington is actually only a short walk from central London, those coming from further afield are looked after by the Northern Line, running through Kennington tube station. There are many bus routes ready to take you deeper into south London, or north to central London, too.

The Housekeep platform frequently takes bookings across the SE11 postcode, with 5-star rated housekeepers available. These cleaners have been interviewed by the team and vetted to ensure they provide consistent and thorough domestic service.
