Karen's place is very conveniently located near southfields tube station and is perfect for a quiet and cosy stay in London. There are quite few shops and cafes around to get by.
The only thing negative thing I have to say is there weren't any bedside lamps: There was just the main light.
Otherwise the place was really nice and Karen was really accommodating so I recommend it !
Det var en sød lille lejlighed og jeg var der egentlig ikke så meget men det var nok for mig i den måned jeg var i London.
Jeg manglede lidt en ovn eftersom jeg lavede mad til mig selv hver dag men et fint sted tæt på metroen så det var lige hvad jeg havde behov for.
I stayed in Karen's flat with my parents. She was very accommodating and helpful when making our booking and was flexible in the checkout time which meant my parents didn't need to worry about storing luggage before their late flight. The flat's location is excellent, just a short walk to Southfields tube and shops. It is a small flat but everything is new and well presented. We enjoyed our stay and had no major issues!
Awesome quite location, minute walk form the train station and all the local shops. 40min train ride to city centre. Very clean with a nice rain head shower. Karen was very professional to deal with. Definitely recommend checking it out.
VERY close to train (you don't even actually cross any streets), enough grocery / other services nearby, very easy to get in touch with host.
This flat is, in theory, good. Good location, decent set up, walkable to a lot of great shops etc. Karen was quickly responsive to issues with internet (frustratingly intermittent throughout my stay) and hot water (which I didn't have the first 2 days but she fixed by 3rd day). However, what I wasn't told is that they are doing massively disruptive and unbearably LOUD construction directly below this flat on the ground level. For 8-12 hours a day every day except Sunday they were drilling, jackhammering and banging pretty much non stop. So loud that I couldn't hear the sound on my laptop or the TV, even with noise cancelling headphones. Sleeping was out of the question. It was truly unbearable, I ended up spending as much time out of the flat as possible, and because the job I was in town for required me to work nights I was entirely exhausted by the time I left as there was simply no chance of sleeping once they started every morning. The porter advised that it will be at least another 2 months of this and likely longer, so if you're looking at staying anytime between now and July/Aug 2013 I'd inquire first. I should have been made aware before booking that this was happening so I could make an informed decision. I've filed a complaint with airbnb and am still working on getting a refund.
I had a wonderful experience staying in Karen's flat. The apartment had everything you could need and was a nice place to come to after long days exploring London. The location was ideal, 5 minute walk to the tube station on the District line. I definitely recommend it and would stay there again!
Karen was very responsive and helpful with whatever we needed. 1 minute walk to southfields station near Wimbledon.
The apartment is well furnished, clean and functional. It is in a converted terrace house with other apartments. Having said this there was no issue and all residents were quite and respectful especially given that it was NY eve and so forth.
Only have to two items to raise but I do not see these as faults, but more as quirks
1. No control over the heating, it was either off or on, could benefit from a separate thermostat.
2. The apartment was not as big as the pictures make out to be so was a little surprised at the size. It is one bedroom with sitting area, and a separate kitchen with 2 seater dining table. However there was plenty of room so not something to put you off. All relevant equipment was present and correct and to a good standard.
Apart from this Karen was welcoming, friendly and very flexible with meeting times for handover of keys. All in all a pleasant apartment, good location near to the Tube and in a quiet area.
I would certainly stay again.
So many thanks Karen
The apartment was clean and in good connection, a couple of minutes from the Southfields tube station. When the wireless internet stopped working Karen quickly resolved the issue with the ISP.
Would recommend staying in this studio.
Karen is a lovely guest (and Airbnb host). She is conscientious and considerate. Highly recommended!
