My family stayed from a Thursday to Monday first of week of May2015, although Clapham is a busy neighbour during the weekend nights, it was quite and very silent.
The apartment was clean, warm and fully furnishe. It has a large living room, kitchen and main bethroom. It is very close to Clapham north tube station and Clapham High street Overground station.
David was very helpful with my aunt and uncle, they don't speak very good english, he spoke a little spanish to them in order to explain all the bits around the flat, he also help them to set the WiFi in their phones!!!
The flat was better than expected, I will totally book it again in the future.
Appartement très agréable, clair et fonctionnel. Proximité du train qui n'a pas dérangé. Conseils avisés du propriétaire sur les bus et liaisons vers la ville - Bus 88 très pratique.
Ihanan "englantilainen" asunto todella hyvällä sijainnilla. Toimi hyvin kahden pienen lapsen kanssa. Mertoasemalle kävelee n. 5 minuuttia, samoin bussipysäkille. Asunto oli siisti ja keittiö hyvin varusteltu. Lämmin suosittelu!
The second time that I used this flat and the flat was not clean and David was not polite.i will not use it again!
Ileana was by far the worst guest to deal with ever. She sought to book the apartment directly (following her first rental) going outside of Air BNB and not wishing to leave a security deposit. She booked on this occasion for only a few days but demanded the same discount that I had offered when she stayed for a few weeks earlier in the year. I insisted that the booking was made through Air BNB which did not please her. She was extremely vague around arrival time and although she lives local to the apartment declined to assist in picking up the keys for her relatives for whom she had made the booking. This required me to make myself available between 7.15 and 22.15 on a Saturday night to hand over keys. I was aware of her tendency to complain about the cleanliness of the property following her previous stay and therefore ensured that the property was spotless. Ileana was clearly going to be unhappy having failed to secure the discount she wanted. I was reluctant to host her a second time given the state that the apartment had been left previously (heating full on etc.) but gave her the benefit of the doubt. I will not be doing it again.
David's Clapham flat was exactly what we wanted. A comfortable and well-equipped flat, with convenient access to Clapham's bustling High Street and the tube's Northern Line. Nice places nearby to get a morning coffee and weekend brunch. The flat was clean and organized and had all the amenities as advertised. David was responsive and friendly. All in all, a great stay in Clapham.
