A fantastic mix of modern and classic, this home balances comfort and sophistication effortlessly. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a gorgeous wooden king size bed and next door a huge bathroom with separate bath looks out onto the leafy Battersea park.

It is a very nice house located in a very lovely quite community. Although some of the facilities were not very fashion and new, the excellent service provided by UnderTheDoormat team made it ignorable. Very good experience indeed. Thanks!

First, the positives of our stay: The house does look like the pictures. And it is well-equipped for light cooking. There are also tons of good books to read in the master bedroom library, from Zadie Smith to mystery novels. And the neighbors were quite friendly. Also UnderTheDoormat was good about communicating with us; they always replied within about 12 hours max. And though the location is far from main London attractions, there are bus stops in walking distance. Get an Oyster card and you can hop on the bus and get to most places in 30-60 minutes. Lastly, Battersea Park is just a few blocks away, and it's an amazing park with loads of stuff to do for kids from a playground to a zoo to a canopy walk with zip line. Now for the negatives: We were told only one day before our arrival that we'd have to move to another house the last two days of our stay (we booked the house for 7 days) due to a "mistake." This was highly inconvenient for us, and we made that known. In the end, we didn't have to move, but it's very stressful to have your accommodations changed by someone else without much notice when you're heading to another country for a week. There was also a cleanliness issue in the kitchen. Mainly mold in the fridge and dishwasher. The dishwasher actually smelled awful from the mold, and we are a bit disgusted to have to put our food in the fridge. In addition, the shower was broken when we arrived, which was very inconvenient. They did fix it just before we left, so that may not be an issue now. And while there is a washer, it is tiny; and there is no dryer and just a couple small racks to dry clothes. We made it work, though. Lastly, it was quite hot when we were there and there was only one fan. Our son had to sleep with us at night because there was no fan for his room. And you might consider using Ocado to have groceries delivered to you as there aren't too many stores nearby. There is a co-op that's about a ten-minute walk away, but it you have heavy bags, it'll be a tough walk back. Ocado is pretty amazing, so we just had groceries delivered. All in all, it's an OK place to stay. Some tweaks would make it much better. Tip: Bring hand towels if you use those to bathe.

Hello Shavahn, thank you for your honest review of your stay in our home. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the home and were able to enjoy the homeowner's book collection. I would like to sincerely apologise for the issue with possibly moving you to another home. This was an error on our part, and is not something that has happened before. We took steps to ensure that you would not have to move, which in the end you didn't have to, but I can understand why this would cause unnecessary stress to you and this is not something that we would ever want to do. Thank you for notifying us about the issues with the fridge and the dishwasher, this is not up to the standards that we expect from our homes and this is something I have notified the cleaners about, to ensure this is looked at. With the shower, this was something we were only made aware of just before you arrived, and we did everything we could to get it fixed, but to minimise disruption during your stay. The home does have two bathrooms, both of which have shower facilities, but I apologise for any inconvenience caused by not having the shower in the main bathroom working. In regards to the washing machine, it is a standard size of washing machines here in the UK, and the home is not listed as having a tumble dryer, which is why drying racks are provided. The homes we manage are people's personal homes and we try to ensure that they have all the facilities that guests may need, and it is quite standard for homes in the UK to not have tumble dryers. My apologies for the heat issue, the UK very rarely gets to the temperature that it was while you were here, and most homes in London do not have air conditioning or fans. We may have been able to provide a second fan had we been notified about this during your stay. In regards to the towels, each guest is provided with a body and a hand towel during their stay. Thank you again for your honest feedback, I have passed this onto my colleagues and we are already working to improve what you have said needs to be improved. Please let us know if you are back in London as we would love to host you in an UnderTheDoormat and improve on your experience of staying with us this time.

We loved this accommodation. Comfortable & homely but also well equipped and furnished with obvious quality & style. Obviously regularly used & maintained by the owner. Location was great for our needs & the neighbourhood was quiet and clean. It was easy to get to - walking distance to Clapham junction station & had several great dinner and brunch places close by (would recommend 'Flour to the People'). It was also very close to Battersea park & walking distance over the river to Chelsea (25mins to the Flower Show). We loved our stay & would highly recommend this property.

We are Under The Doormat.

When you love travelling, it’s often the little surprises that make it special.

Like finding that friendly coffee shop off the beaten track, visiting a local artisan market, or stumbling across a fabulous restaurant not listed in the guidebook.

At UnderTheDoormat, we’ve worked and travelled around the world – and think the best way to discover an area’s hidden gems is to live like a local.

But without friends or family in every place, it’s easy to be just another tourist and miss what makes a city tick.

Our goal is to help people experience a new way to travel.

By staying in the homes of interesting and well-travelled locals while they are away, you can step straight into their lives and unlock the secrets of the city. Every home we feature is hand-picked for its character – in vibrant neighbourhoods filled with colour and personality.

We believe that travel should be personal, inspirational and memorable, something to share when you return.

That’s why when you open the door with UnderTheDoormat, you’re holding the key not only to a new home-from-home – but also to an unforgettable local story.
