The listing description was very accurate. A great 2 bed with decent sized lounge and kitchen/dining. The area is very safe with the flat a short 5 minute walk to the main street and overground station. Clapham North Tube is not much further. David was very cooperative and gave us plenty of privacy. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, cutlery, cups and glasses. Everything worked. Beds were pretty comfortable. Shower water was hot and plentiful. Windows were solid and kept out most of any noise. All up a very good experience. Very happy with our stay. Thanks David.
David met us the day before to hand over the keys and show us the apartment. Very handy as family was arriving on an early flight the next morning.
L'accoglienza è stata puntuale e cordiale. Grazie a David e ad Airbnb che ha risolto rapidamente un piccolo equivoco sulla stazione metro presso cui trovarci. Il quartiere (Clapham) è tranquillo, piacevolissimo, ben servito e benissimo collegato a tutti i centri di interesse.
We were very grateful that David was so obliging in giving the key to the flat to our daughter. This made our arrival easy after a long flight. The flat is as described and very clean and comfortable. It is well equipped with a new sofa, extra towels and good bed linen. It is in an ideal setting for the tube and the local shops and restaurants. we were delighted to be able to stay there again.
Enjoyed David' place, had everything we needed, great location with a 5 min walk to the high st including the tube and bus route connections to the rest of London. Would recommend. Nick
David's flat is perfect for those looking for easy access to the city yet outside the bustle of London. He greeted us at the train and walked us to the flat. The accommodations were comfortable and the bed Extra firm. The are neighbors that can get loud which was unfortunate seeing they had a house party until 3am but otherwise the street is quiet.
The host was very good about communication via email and text. He could not be there upon arrival but we were met by his daughter. The place was as described. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. There was easy access to trains and the downtown area.
