About This Listing
Welcoming house in the heart of a buzzy local area with easy access to Central London.
Welcome to my house. I hope you will read the information and get in touch. We love welcoming guests from around the world.
I have two rooms available for rent on the top floor of my house. This is the largest of the two.
The house in on a popular residential road just a 2 minute walk from Clapham North tube (northern line and 1 stop to Victoria line so easy access to Central London). 10 mins to Oxford Street or Leicester Square. Alternatively there are a number of buses that run direct.
This room is a large double with a lot of space. There is a large double bed (king size) that is very comfy. There are two large windows that let in all the light and are double glazed so the room is quiet. There is a large wardrobe and a chest of drawers.
Both rooms share a large spacious bathroom with bath and powerful shower and a separate loo.
There is a kettle and full tea/coffee making facilities as well as a small fridge, microwave and toaster so you can cook basic meals and breakfast etc. This is a ROOM ONLY so the main kitchen and living room in the house we keep private.
Washing and drying machine available at £5 per use.
The house has wifi internet.
Two lovely cats, Ruby and Archie live in our home too who are very friendly!
Clapham is a great area for experiencing London. It is very green with the common just a 10 minute walk up the road. Clapham High Street is very lively with a thriving community. There are numerous brilliant bars, restaurants (some award winning!),pubs, boutique shops, gyms, hair salons etc. Sainsburys is a 5 minute walk.
I have lived in Clapham all my life and enjoy going out so am very happy to recommend places to go or things to do here or in London and around the UK
Check in during the week is before 8.30am or after 6pm. Weekends is more flexible.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Interaction with Guests
We always welcome the guests and are on hand to help with bookings and recommendations of things to do / places to eat etc.
We do however keep the main part of the house private.
We ask that our guests respect our home as we will respect them. As we are living in the house as well as potentially other guests we ask that people are quiet when coming and going from the house and that they leave their room and bathroom in good order. We also ask there there is to be NO smoking anywhere in the house.
Our hosts were very flexible with our arrival time. The room is as is shown on the profile and was very warm and cosy (in December). We stayed for New Years eve 2014 and the location to Clapham North Tube Station was brilliant, a 5 minute walk at a leisurely pace. It worked out very well and we recommend this room to all. Parking is 3 pounds an hour from 08:30 to 17:30 on the adjacent street. Bank holidays are free of charge.
We stayed at Charlotte and Andrew’s for one night as we were going to an engagement party in a pub on Clapham high street. It was great to have a two minute walk home at the end of the night while friends were calling taxis! The room had plenty of space, two large windows and the bed was very comfy. The toilet was just outside the bedroom door. As it was the weekend we easily found free parking on the street outside. Charlotte was quick to respond to my emails and flexible on check in time. I did not get to meet Charlotte but I did get to meet one of her beautiful cats on the stairs who enjoyed a chin scratch. We would certainly stay here again if we were visiting Clapham.
I unfortunately had to make a last minute cancellation that Charlotte rightfully declined, but she happily offered me to postpone the night I paid for in the near future when I shall need it. She was very accommodating and I will be glad to stay at her place soon.
We stayed with Charlotte for three nights and had a great first AirB&B experience. She was very accommodating letting us check in early so we wouldn't have to wear our bags around all day, which was very appreciated after a long day of travel. The room was large, clean and as pictured, and had a very comfortable bed. Bathroom was separate and shared with another room and had amazing water pressure, we never even saw the other lodger staying at the time. Her place is literally a couple blocks away from the tube so getting around all parts of London was no problem at all. If you enjoy walking around as we do its also a very short walk away from Brixton, and Clapham is a great neighborhood to explore. We really liked coming back to Clapham after a busy day in central London, it's just as good but less congested. We would recommend anyone coming to London to stay here!
Large nice room in great neighborhood. Hosts are awesome! I have stayed here 3-4 times now. Neighborhood has lots of great restaurants and grocery stores and is very close to Tube!
