Are you a lady traveling on your own and looking for a safe reliable place to stay in London? Are you a cozy couple looking for a romantic getaway that affords you a wonderful space to be yourselves at a decent price? Or do you simply need a place with ample space to sleep up to five people? My apartment is suitable for all of the above and when you book it there is NO sharing with people you don't know ;-)
There is a minimum booking period of 3 nights but I've left my settings to allow for 1 night bookings for occasional left overs between lengthier bookings.
The apartment can accommodate up to 5 people (2 in the Bedroom + 2 on the sofa-bed in the living room and an additional 1 on the airbed in the living room).
If you key in 4 guests, AiirBnb will give a quote for all the 4 people. For e.g. 4 friends staying for a week in Sep 2014 would be under £35 per person per night! But if you are a couple then the price is just under £100 a night for both of you! This is a well located apartment for a low price! On top of that it is even less expensive during the low season months. And of-course it is more expensive during the peak months of July-Aug. Please check my calendar for exact price!
If you want to experience living in a real London neighbourhood, Clapham is one of the best areas. It has a lot of buildings and pubs originally built in Victorian times. The local high street has a lot of grocery stores, restaurants and cafes. For more info please search for AirBnb Clapham neighbourhood guide.
The apartment is 7 minutes walk from the famous Clapham Common (Public Park) which is buzzing with life and local people all year round. It is the best place to spend a few summer afternoons. There are a couple of local council (government) leisure facilities which could be used on a pay as you go basis. They are usually a few £££ for each use which includes gym, clean and indoor warm swimming pool, racket sports.
The apartment is located just 2 minutes from the underground station which can take you to central London (e.g. London Bridge, Embankment, Oxford circus and Leicester square) within 12-15 minutes. Buses and over ground trains also run frequently between my apartment and all parts of London. Additionally there are a couple of 24 hour buses which will bring you safely home if you fancy a late night out e.g. night clubs.
There are a lot of grocery stores e.g Sainsbury's, Tesco and M&S all within walking distance AND few £1 shops around (you will be surprise what you can get for a £1 in those shops:-)
Brixton (10 minutes walking) itself is a bit like a cool village within a large metropolis. It is a lively spot with many bars, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, cafes, markets and health food shops to name but a few. And if you value your food and the planet there is a great organic farmers market locally every Sunday! Brixton will give you a taste of the real London for those of you looking to go off the beaten tourist track into the local heart of this great city. If in doubt check out 'Brixton Village' market online and you will then know what I am talking about! It's even been written up in the New York Times.
This would suit anyone traveling through London who wants to see a bit of authentic London life with its pubs, bars, people and local living, and have wicked access to the west end and all the sights. Basically this is where the real Londoners live!
The apartment has got everything you would need during your stay in London.

Dear Traveller - First of all my motto is hospitality! It is culturally very important for me to make my guests comfortable in my apartments. Thus I usually try to provide any thing my guest might ask me during their stay. Hopefully some of my reviews would support my claim.
Secondly, I Love traveling myself so understand some of the basic needs of the travellers. I manage my properties very professionally i.e. professional cleaning and comfortable bed.
Last but not the least I love living in Clapham myself. I've been living here for the past few years therefore I can tell you where all the best bars and restaurants are.
You’ll have plenty of your own space to do your own thing and yet I’m just a call or a text message away if you need anything. I look forward to hosting you in my awesome apartments.
