Clapham South is a leafy area of South West London, close enough to the centre for quick and easy travel but far enough away to feel removed from the madness of a big city. A place to relax and unwind...
Centrally located between Clapham Common and Balham with easy access to many cafes and restaurants, bars, a local cinema and live music venues, there is always something to enjoy nearby.
Not more than a 3 min walk from the apartment, Clapham Common provides a large expanse for leisurely strolls or a jog with the locals.
Host's favourite escape from home is a fantastic French cafe: Le Petit Boulanger just around the corner from the apartment in pretty Abbeville Village. Choose from a selection of mouth-watering sweet and savoury treats baked on the premises by a French pastry chef (yes, that's French from France) PLUS the best coffee in the area. Don't miss it.
Easy 5 minute walk to/from Clapham South tube station (Northern Line - Zone 2) for efficient transfer into the heart of London, only 5 miles from apartment. Numerous bus routes within minutes from door.
If carrying luggage to and from airports isn't your thing and if you'd prefer a relaxing, seamless transfer to the front door, host will arrange an inexpensive but efficient taxi transfer for you. Just ask for details.
*This is a gay-friendly household.
*The property is not suitable for children.
*No pets allowed. Host shares her home with two cats.
It was to be my first AirBnB experience so I was obsessed with finding the right place. Angela's listing stood out because she seemed to have more reviews than everyone else and more important, the comments were not random ones but were quite consistent.
Her flat was all I expected and more - cheerful and neat as a pin, creatively furnished with 5-star attention to detail and comfort. The big bonus was Angela, such an interesting, engaging host and a fountain of information.
I had two lots of stays with Angela with a one-week break in between. On returning for the second leg, I really felt like I was going back to my London home. Angela made my stay a '3D' experience... I do miss our morning chats over coffee!
Angela is an excellent host. Room was pleasantly cool despite the heat wave and very quiet. Close to tube station. Heartily recommend it.
Very cute bedroom, located in the back away from street noise. It was really quiet and the rest of the flat is very clean. I felt very comfortable staying here and felt like I actually lived in London rather than a nameless hotel. Situated in the more southern part of London, maybe a 5-7 minute walk to the Tube. Tesco and M&S etc all nearby, with a busy street with bars and restaurants up the road about a 15-20 minute walk.
Angela is a great host, super friendly and nice.
Indeed a very comfy room. Nice and clean flat and bathroom. Angela was very kind and a great host. Can definitely recommend staying at her place.
Angela was a great host - she let me drop off my bags early even though the room was not completely ready, which was a big help. The room was clean and quiet, just as advertised. Angela provided a nice continental breakfast every morning, as well. She lives very close to the tube station and it was easy to head into the city every day. On top of that, Angela is a lovely person - I really enjoyed meeting her and hope she makes it to my fair city someday!
Anglela was a warm, friendly and exceptionally inviting host. From the moment I stepped into her home -after a very long flight- I was greeted warmly and offered the best latte I've ever tasted with some cookies. The place was wonderfully homey, clean, modern, sunny and bright. The room itself had access to a wonderful backyard patio. I had an incredibly comfortable stay with close access to the Tube, cafes and shops. I also enjoyed meeting and talking to Angela, a very personable, smart, worldy person. I loved the experience so much, I would only ever stay here on my future trips to London.
This was undoubtedly the best airbnb accommodation I've booked and I have no hesitation in recommending this as a first class experience. Angela's apartment is super clean, neat and extremely comfortable. Angela herself was a fabulous host who wasn't intrusive but who was also available to chat and offer advice any time I asked. I must have not read the fine print very well as I didn't realise breakfast was included which was divine and always plentiful. The flat itself is a stones throw to Clapham Common and loads of buses, and only five minutes to the northern line Tube. The wi-fi is fantastic too so I was able to research loads of things to do from the comfort of my room. What a fab host and place! Next time I get to London I will definitely be asking to stay there again.
Angela was the best host during our two-night stay! She was flexible with our check-in time since our flight got in super early (she let us drop our bags and freshen up real quick), and her flat was super cute and really convenient / easy to get to on the tube. We very much enjoyed (and appreciated) the breakfast (and cappuccinos!) she made for us in the morning, and hearing about her own travels, too. We'd definitely stay there again the next time we're in London--hopefully for longer next time!
I don’t have much to add to my previous review—staying at Angela’s is always a blast and I’d do it again without a moment’s hesitation every time I’m in London.
Brilliant. I had a really great stay ! Angela truly is an excellent hostess. Friendly,welcoming and knows all the best spots in Clapham and surrounding her beautiful home. Her garden flat is in one of the best locations in Clapham. Fact. The best location I've ever stayed in London. Excellent connections to Gatwick and so close to the tube, busses, and really great local amenities and trendy cafe's. All just a short walk.
Very relaxing to come back to after the busyness of sightseeing in London. Really nice quiet room, cosy and warm, really comfy bed too, better than any hotel I've stayed in!
I slept so well. The rest of the flat is so nice, comfy, bright and very cool. I loved it, Huge landscaped outdoor space at the back. very cool.
People this is an absolute bargain! The continental breakfast and fresh coffees were really great too. A real treat to wake up to. Thanks again Angela!
Top of my list for staying in London in future!
