We stayed here in early January following a couple of weeks touring the UK. It was really convenient and large enough for our family having the two good sized bedrooms with brilliant queen beds. The remainder of the flat was also large enough to relax at the end of the day.
We had family in the next street which made the location great for us.
We would definitely stay again
Booked 5 months in advance, deposit paid, email confirmation, contacted the owner 1 week before travel to be told that no booking had been made and they had rented out to someone else. TripAdvisor confirmed that the deposit was paid but the booking had been cancelled and we were not informed! Not a great way to do business! Beware!
Was a bit concerned about the location when we first arrived at the apartment via taxi as it is a bit far from London City center but we were able to figure out the "tube" quickly and the station(s) were only a 10 min walk away and then about 15 min subway ride. The apartment was clean, plenty of linens, towels, etc. The bedrooms only have patio doors that open, no windows, and since it was warm when we were there we slept with the doors open hoping the cat that was crawling along the stone wall didn't decide to visit us while sleeping (it didn't). I would have given it five stars except for a few things. The bathrooms were extremely small, the terrace area needed a good cleaning and trimming of the grape vines, the apartment smelled musty which I found out was from black mold in the washing machine (and maybe the floor area from leaking water?). Not sure if the washer is salvageable, but it definitely needs to be cleaned with bleach.
Located near two underground tube stations, this apartment was a great home base for exploring all of London. Near Brixton neighborhood shopping, pubs, and restaurants as well. We hope to return.
Family of 4; we decided to spend Christmas in London and needed a place like home not a hotel. This is a great location where you can easily reach the public transport system. Pictures of the property is as you see. Very clean ad well kept rooms and beddings; and Matt is a great and a pleasant guy. My family and I will also make this our home when we do visits to London.
Matthew has thought of everything in this little haven . We enjoyed every minute of our stay and slept like babies in the wonderful beds. Perfect location to Stockwell, Brixton and Clapham.
