An Oasis in London, Spanish spoken

Apartment - Private room · Acre Ln, Lambeth, England SW2 5, United Kingdom

The Space

You will receive a warm welcome in our home. It is a convenient, comfortable base from which to explore London. We are a friendly bilingual English/Argentinian couple - Carolyn was born in London and Carlos knows exactly what is is like to arrive for the first time as a visitor! We are full of advice on how to enjoy and make the most of London. Thanks to all our wonderful guests and great reviews we are now Superhosts and are very pleased and proud that all our hard work and hosting has been rewarded!

The room:
A spacious, private ensuite room with a double bed, shower room, flat screen TV/DVD and french windows leading onto its own private patio. It is relaxing and quiet. There is wifi, we provide clean towels and a full continental breakfast. This room accommodates 2 but with the adjacent room we can host 3-4 people(see below)

Our place:
We live in a spacious 3 bedroom maisonette with a large garden. The house is mid-Victorian and is full of character with ornate fireplaces and other original features. You are welcome to use our beautiful kitchen diner and the home gym at the bottom of the garden! The house is set back from a main road with off-street parking. The bedrooms are at the back overlooking the garden so are very quiet.

The area:
5 minutes walk to vibrant Brixton with its fascinating, multicultural markets, bars and cafes. 10 minutes walk to Clapham High Street which has loads of restaurants and Clapham Common, a beautiful local park . We will give you a map when you arrive with our favourite restaurants and bars. If you need more recommendations just ask!

5 minutes walk to Brixton tube station and 8 minutes to Clapham North.
From Brixton it is 4 stops (9 minutes) to Victoria and 6 stops to Oxford Circus, so a 15-20 minute tube journey to most main sights in central London.

Local buses to all parts of central London including Westminster, Trafalgar Square and the museums in South Kensington.

*Please send a message to check availability before reserving*

The second room:
This smaller double room can be booked together with the larger room. It has a double bed, ensuite toilet and basin and a door onto the patio. The two rooms together are suitable for a family with older children or a group of 3-4 friends who are happy sharing the shower in the larger room.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wonderful stay with Carolyn and Carlos. They are the kind of hosts that make using airbnb worthwhile. Very helpful with tips and recommendations and making us feel at home.
    Also, their neighborhood is a treasure. Very close to London's many attractions but at the same time an authentic and lively place with a distinct character. If you love markets as I do you have got to check this out.
    I will let anyone planning a trip to London know about this option and hope to return there on my next trip to London.

  • Carolyn and Carlos were thoroughly charming and attentive. They were mindful of every detail from temperature to tea preferences. Home and room was even more breathtaking than they seem in the photos. I left very reluctantly :)

  • Our stay here was fantastic! Carolyn and Carlos were amazing hosts and really added to our stay in England.

    Their home was warm and welcoming and neither of them could possibly be more helpful, informative or accommodating; giving us a lot of help and advice with where to go, what to see.

  • Carolyn and Carlos were fabulous hosts. Their place is lovely and my mother and I had a great time staying here. I would recommend definately recommend staying here.

    Carolyn was very helpful in answerin all my email queries prior to arriving and I highly appreciate the fact that she did not mind some special requirements I had with regards to allergies (washing powder/fabric softener).

    Our London stay was definately all the better for staying with them.

We love having people to stay with us and helping them to enjoy our beautiful city of London. Carolyn is a GP and Carlos is an architect (he designed and renovated our home). Carolyn was born in London and Carlos is from Argentina and knows exactly how it feels to arrive in London for the first time as a tourist! We both love travelling, art and music. Our house is full of paintings and furniture that we have collected along the way. We have been hosting for airbnb for over a year and have recently been awarded the 'superhosts' badge for looking after our guests to a high standard. We have met some fantastic, interesting people. Our rooms are private and relaxing, we are happy to chat to our guests and help when they need it or leave them to do their own thing when they want to. We hope to welcome you to our home.
