This spacious room with its own bathroom is situated in a beautiful flat characterised by exposed brick, wooden floors and lots of light - a real home from home. Enjoy your stay in a neighbourhood popular with locals and so close to central London!
What everyone loves about my place:
This is a lovingly decorated double bedroom with lots of light and lots of space. A complimentary bottle of wine, a bottle of filtered water as well as a hair dryer and two free Oyster cards (to get around London's public transport system) are made available for every guest. Your own luxurious bathroom with fresh towels, soap, hand cream and shower gel is right next to the bedroom.
You can use the beautiful and very sunny kitchen for breakfast in the morning. There is always lots of fresh organic fruit, organic natural yoghurt, organic swiss muesli as well as tea, coffee and organic milk. The comfortable lounge area is available for relaxing after a long day. There are many books you are very welcome to borrow. There is no TV.
Interaction with Guests
I am always very interested to hear about where my guests are from, what they do, why they are coming to London and why they chose to stay with me. Sometimes this may result in a home cooked dinner and a glass of wine together. However, I have a very active lifestyle and I am often travelling or out and about or just busy living life so sometimes when I come home I just want to relax.
Clapham is one of the most vibrant areas in South London lots of young professionals from all walks of life call their home. It is very well-connected with buses and tubes to Central London as well as its vicinity to two of London's busiest railway stations: Victoria and Clapham Junction.

Other Things to Note
What some guests don't like about my place:
There is a deep staircase with narrow steps leading to my flat on the first floor - 15 steps in total which I walk up and down several times a day, but which can be hazardous for someone with difficulty climbing stairs.
I mostly work from home and my desk is the kitchen table. I therefore ask my guests to be respectful of my time and space during weekdays and would like them to have finished breakfast by 10am, which is not suitable for everyone. The same goes for dinner and cooking in my kitchen. My working hours vary widely and I am not always able to finish by 6pm. However, I AM VERY FLEXIBLE and have many work commitments outside of my flat so I can always schedule around my guests' needs - all I require is good communication before and throughout your holiday so that I can ensure your stay will be an unforgettable experience.
If you have any questions about the accommodation or require general advice for your trip, please get in touch and I'll do my best to answer everything. I am here to help make your stay a memorable one!

The garden stairs are broken and my landlord is in the process of fixing this, but for now please be very careful when going outside as you could fall off the stairs.
This was our first experience with AirBnB and it was a good one :-) We felt very welcomed in Claudias home. Even though she wasn´t at home, we could pick up the key at a neighbour in the evening. The room is really nice, the bathroom is clean and we slept well in the comfortable bed.
Claudia is an open person and she has much fun to share her house, her kitchen and refrigerator with guests.
There are a lot of opportunities to come to City without walking more than 5 minutes. Because our flight back was early in the morning, Claudia organized a minicab for us.
We had great days in London and give big thanks to Claudia - perhaps we´ll come again!
We stayed with Claudia for one night and the accommodations were excellent. Unfortunately we had to leave early in the morning, but we would highly recommend it. Stefan & Ana
My experience was great! Claudia was extremely helpful throughout my stay, providing tips and ideas of what to do and how to get around London. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The location was so close to nice local shops, restaurants, and a movie theater. On Saturday morning, there is a local market very close by. Also, it was so easy to get to central London via the tube. Next time I am in London I will definitely try to re-book!
Claudia is a lovely person, very pleasant and helpful.
Her place is plenty of charm, calm and close to the tube.
You have a room and your own bathroom.
Definitely a good place to visit London for a few days.
Lovely flat in a great location minutes from the tube and Clapham High St. Claudia was very helpful and attentive. Large room, comfortable bed. Would definitely stay here again.
Die Zeit bei Claudia war toll. In ihrer gemütlichen Wohnung lernt man das wahre England und London kennen, nicht so wie in einem Hotel. Alles war wie von Claudia beschrieben und somit wurden wir nicht enttäuscht. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
I had a lovely time staying in Claudia's apartment. I was traveling alone and she had great suggestions for neighborhood dining. The apartment was very comfortable and cute and Claudia was a lovely host. The best part was the vibrancy and proximity of staying in the Clapham area. Thanks for a great visit!

I'm a German who has lived in London for fifteen years. I love this city and think it's absolutely amazing what airbnb is making possible.
I have travelled lots over the years and always looked at alternatives of staying over in places. Whether it was a working farm in the south of Italy, a boat in France, a cattle farm in Australia, a tree house in Turkey or a good old-fashioned bed & breakfast in South West England - as a traveller I wanted to meet the locals and experience their place as they do as this is the best way to learn about other cultures. With today's technology and the ingenious airbnb platform this whole process has become so much easier and fun. It is wonderful how airbnb is helping ordinary people to open their doors to the curious traveller and I am very happy that I can contribute to this. I'm looking forward to welcoming you in this vibrant neighbourhood of this wonderful city.
