About This Listing
Our beautiful little studio space has a modern feel and is brilliantly located for all the fun of local Brixton. It's also very easy to get around London from here and takes only 15-20 minutes to get to Oxford Circus on the tube. Wifi very strong!
Our Garden studio is a beautifully converted former garage/coachouse. We have lived in the house next door since 1998 and know the area very well. We are now selling the property in order to downsize in London but the studio is still available to rent for a few months.
The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, with EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION to the centre......
10-15 minutes walk from Clapham North anad Brixton tube stations. Max 15-20 minutes away from any site in the centre.
Brixton centre has a very positive vibe and the relatively recent regeneration of Brixton village has brought the area on to the the London FOODIE map...MORLEYS department store has pretty much everything, including a Top Shop outlet and a MAC counter. Clothes shops include very good value H and M, New Look and TK Max.
The Brixton Lido in Brockwell Park has a super Gym and an outdoor pool.
The total space of this property is approx 16 square meters. Tall ceilinged, but the sleeping platform is only 1.2 metres high so its a bit of a struggle for "oldies" I've been told.
The Wet room (bathroom) is spacious and has a large Powershower and is tiled in black slate. (You will find little extras such as cotton pads, earbuds, deodorant, shower gel).
There's a hair dryer and Washer Drier machine
The sleeping platform has a double mattress fitted with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, duvet and comfortable pillows.
We supply you with towels.
There is a TV /radio and Wi-Fi connection is very good as broadband has just been installed
Breakfast isn't included but the cooking facilities are excellent with an electric hob, oven and fridge. Ideal for preparing your packed lunch for the day or a cosy dinner at home. Sainsbury's supermarket at the end of the road has everything you need and there are plenty of take aways in the area too if you don't feel like cooking.
The cupboards are full of oils, herbs and spices, tea, coffee, sugar and you'll find mineral water and a few english items in the fridge such as mustard, jam etc.
We're about 10 mins walk from either Clapham OR Brixton and in a nice quiet street so you'll be able to enjoy a lie in if you've had a late night.
If there's anything you need that isn't in the studio, we're happy to provide it.
Interaction with Guests
We are always available via email. Travelling this January/ February. You'll be met at the studio by our good friends Jack and Kasia who will show you everything.
It's a really quiet area. Away from the city..... but central. Brixton has a lovely "local" feel, is multicultural and colourful with lots of great places to eat and drink
The public transport is fabulous! There are nearly ten buses at the end of the road that take you to nearly everywhere in London! and there are two underground stations, (Clapham North and Brixton) only 10-12 minutes walk away.
Please try and take your shoes off at the door
Please arrange a time to hand keys back to Jack or Kasia in person before leaving
Please respect our neighbours and don't play loud music late at night.
Please put the rubbish outside on Monday night in the black wheelie bin of 54 Lambert Road.
Try and leave the place as you found it :)
REMEMBER TO LOCK BOTH THE GARDEN AND THE STREET DOORS EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE
We thank you for your consideration
We had a fine time in Lizzie's Brixton studio. The apartment is compact, but it has all of the necessary amenities (plus a few more!), and everything worked well for us. While it is a bit off the beaten path, we enjoyed exploring South London from this home base, and we were also able to get to the center easily via the Brixton Tube. Lizzie was helpful and responsive via Airbnb messaging before and during our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay here in June. The apartment is beautiful and a very cool place to stay in London; had everything we needed. The hosts were very welcoming & accommodating, even when we were a little late checking in! Great area to stay in with good bars and restaurants. Brixton or Clapham North stations are a 15min walk or short bus ride away. Would def recommend!
Fantastic studio, great location, clean and all the amenities you could need. Lizzie organised a little surprise for my partner and was very helpful with local knowledge. Would recommend.
Spent a lovely few evenings at Lambert Road. A very cosy apartment with all the essentials. Loved the shower! Very clean. Was great for getting into London also. Lovely people to deal with, and would definitely recommend.
Il nostro primo viaggio a Londra non poteva essere così perfetto e bello! La casa è come nelle foto, solo poco più piccola. È pulita, è comoda per due e ha tutto il necessario. È collegata benissimo con il centro ed è a pochi minuti dalla stazione di Brixton. La padrona di casa è davvero gentile e disponibile. Consiglio a tutti questo appartamento per chi deve fare una vacanza a (website hidden) tornerei sicuramente!!!
Excellent communication from Elizabeth from the time of my enquiry right until I checked out. She was very helpful in giving me directions from the airport, and answering any questions I had. The place was very cool and exactly as advertised and reviewed. Had a great stay and was in a great location. Would definitely recommend to others for their stay in the Brixton area!
