London 2019 Stay
The flat was excellent and was in a great location to explore London. Charles was a great host and very helpful. The flat looked to be recently updated and needed a few things tidied up but was otherwise great. The upstairs lounging area was really nice and made for a relaxing spot to close out the day.
Beautiful spacious flat located right on the Common!
The flat has tons of space that includes a very large AMAZING modern bathroom, comfortable bed, tons of storage to unpack and settle in, and a fully furnished modern kitchen downstairs. Main level includes a phenomenal view of the Common and a romantic gas fireplace, and again tons of room to move around and relax. The owner is great and makes sure your every need is attended to. Including providing a bottle of Presecco, fresh milk, fresh Orange Juice and fresh flowers upon arrival. Truly a wonderful home away in a great location. I can’t wait to return.
Perfect place for us as a base for our stay in London!
Great location and Charles was a most helpful host. We were looking for a place where we could get a ‘flavor’ of London, away from the tourist areas. Perfect location for exploring. Clapham Commons is an incredible park to spend time in. You can walk through some very lovely and interesting neighborhoods. We did some typical tourist stuff in downtown but Clapham was the perfect home location. Thank you Charles for being a wonderful host and for providing just what we needed as a home base! We highly recommend and if we get back to London we will see you again!
Lots of space
Had everything we needed. Lots of transport options at our door step, as well as being close/walking distance to restaurants and shops. Apartment is on two levels with a huge living area upstairs. Host Charles was fantastic! My husband had left some clothes in the wardrobe and he arranged for us to get them back. Large comfortable bed.
Clapham Commons Gem
Charles was kind enough to let us drop off our luggage and then check in earlier than anticipated. The flat is on a rather busy road but set back from the road and equipped with windows that block any noise. The view of Clapham Commons across the street (when in the living area) is fantastic and the Commons are wonderful. The BUS line is nearly across the street and the TUBE, pubs, grocery stores, restaurants, are a lovely 10 minute walk from the flat. The flat is beautifully upgraded, the shower is divine, and the bed is firm and comfortable! The living area sofas are beautiful (although not comfy and could use a cleaning-- but they are acceptable, for sure). It might be useful if the owner advertised that he lives in the flat and many drawers and closets are full of his stuff & there are many perishable food items that we assumed belonged to him. But there is plenty of drawer, closet, and fridge space for guests. This was not our first visit to London and, hands down, this was the flat and location that really made us feel like we were home. Byron's restaurant, down the street, gave us a 20% off visitor coupon.
Quite good but below expectations
The accommodation was indeed very spacious and well equipped. Also, very nicely decorated with a nice welcome bouquet waiting for us in the kitchen. However, there is a need to improve cleanness and maintenance especially in the upstairs sitting room. Ample space in the kitchen but cupboards weren't cleaned in quite some time.
Bedroom and en suite bathroom very comfortable. Excellent mattress and pillows. Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and WC are located in the same level - the basement.
A lot of the owners personal belongings were left in the apartment, including unwashed dishes and laundry. Plenty of books that we could use, stereo equipment and TV. Fireplace easy to use if needed.
The owner had provided us with guidance (in writing), was there to welcome us but we had no further contact during our stay. He was flexible with check in time and we thank him for that.
Transportation options are plenty including busses and tube. Nice big park right across the street, bars, pubs and shops within walking distance.
Old part of Clapham neighborhood worth taking a walk - gastro-pubs in the area provide a nice alternative to traditional pub cuisine. We enjoyed staying in the area.
