Good place to stay, if you're travelling with kids. Quick connection to Gatwick airport (Southern trains from Clapham Junction). Thanks!
This was my first airbnb stay and it was a very positive experience. Annabella was a wonderful host and the room was exactly as described. The dining recommendations in the local area were all superb and I would happily stay here again in the future.
Arriving at the Darby's in London, we were warmly greeted and made to feel as if this was our home away from home for a few days. The bedroom was bright and cheerful, everything was very clean and proper, it was great having our own bathroom, and breakfast was generously offered. We really enjoyed our crumpets each morning. We especially enjoyed chatting with the Darby's and getting to know them a bit. I warmly recommend this airbnb.
As usual , it was perfect ! (clean room, pleasant host etc)
Thanks Annabella !
Lovely bright double is a very comfortable solution. Me and my 3 italian friends found ourselves very well in this house. Annabella and her family were very hospitable, the two rooms were clean, warm with comfortable beds, the bathroom was clean too and near the rooms. I enjoyed the breakfast very much, we had at our disposal hot bread and all sorts of jams, tea, coffee and orange juice. The neighborhood are very quiet and good linked to fulham station with the bus. in the nearby you can find a pizzeria, a pub with a good selection of wines and beers and a small shop open all the night long. I asked Annabella some information about museums and exhibitions and about the train for the airport and she suggested me what was on in that days about contemporary art, showing me with her iPad where to go. At the end of our staying in London her Husband took us by car at the nearest tube station. I surely recommend this place to anyone is going to London for a short stay, to visit the city and if I'm going to come back I'll certainly look for the availability of this house.
Me and my mother stayed here for 4 nights. It was a very nice house, with a lovely garden, a comfy bedroom, a private bathroom and 2 cute and cozy cats, In the morning there was an English breakfast available at any time that suited us.
Annabella was a great host and a friendly person. She and the rest of the family were very kind and helpful. The whole atmosphere really made us feel at home. When I go to London again, I'd love to come back here.
This was my very first stay with airbnb and I had a superb time at Annabella's house. Excellent communication and she gave exact instructions on how to get there etc. It was an ideal place to stay for my short break in London... I was made to feel completely at home; her family was lovely and engaging. A really positive experience ! I would certainly stay there again....
Annabella and her family were a very warm and welcoming hosts despite my too late arrival :)The location of this house are very easeful for getting around. P.S. The bathroom is very comfortable and relaxing!I am sure I will choose this house next time in London!
Malcolm's wife Helen here! We couldn't have found more welcoming hosts than the Darbys. Annabella and her family did so much to make sure not only that my 15-year-old son and I were comfortable, but also happy. The house is very accessible by public transportation - only a few minutes on the bus from the Fulham Broadway tube stop - and it is charming and cozy (and the beds are fabulous). We felt at home right away, and took full advantage of the lovely garden. And of all of Annabella's good advice and good will!
It was a pleasure to stay once again with Annabella and james The bed is very comfortable, the shower strong and the wifi fast and as it was warm in london when I arrived there was a good strong fan to keep me cool. It was really good having a drink with Annabella and James in their pretty garden in the evenings. Annabella is a very friendly relaxed host and it is like staying with old friends. I can only recommend again staying at her charming house.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
