Our terrace house is spacious - Edwardian outside, modern within. It's located on a quiet street a few blocks from the heartbeat of funky Brixton. Enjoy easy access to the Victoria underground line and multiple bus routes closely.

The space

A warm, family home in funky Brixton.

Downstairs is a big open plan kitchen / dining area and separate lounge. Upstairs is a bathroom (with bath & shower) and a double (master) bedroom. We've recently renovated to add a loft - where there are two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom (with shower).

Guest access

Our kitchen is modern and fully equipped so it would be easy to whip up a meal with fresh ingredients from Brixton market.

Our house is lived in - it's not a stark hotel - so there are books and DVDs in the living room and ingredients in the kitchen cupboards!

We have two small children so there is a high chair, travel cot, change table and lots of toys and books for little ones. We've tidied the toys away, if you have children, please take them out, if you don't have children, they shouldn't get in your way.

We have a new loft - with two double bedrooms (one under the eaves) and a bathroom. You will have access to three out of five bedrooms, we will keep our children's rooms to put away some of our things in advance of your stay. Let us know if you have young children and we may be able to keep one of the children's rooms open.

Interaction with guests

We only put our house on airbnb when we go away (otherwise we live there!) but we are easily contactable if there are any problems. A friend of ours lives around the corner and will give you the keys and show you around.

Other things to note

We hope you love our house as we do. Your children are very welcome.

e had a fabulous stay in Melanie's spacious and comfortable home. There were four adults in our group and the house was perfect for our needs. The location is superb...close to buses and a quick 5 minute walk to the heart of Brixton. Brixton is on the Victoria line, trains plentiful and it's a quick 12 minute train trip to the heart of the city...Green Park or Oxford Circus. There are Plenty of supermarkets nearby which make shopping a breeze. Melanie's house was light filled and very comfortable. It had a lovely lounge room and great eat in kitchen. The central heating kept us cosy. We had access to TV, WiFi, washing machine and dishwasher ..all of which make for an easy stay. We had plenty of storage and hanging space in the bedrooms and space to use in the fridge. We were even able to hang our washing in the back garden to dry. She provided all the essentials such as detergents for the d/ w and the washing machine and also a bottle of wine, some fresh fruit and bagels on arrival. Check in and check out were very easy. Melanie was a great host ..very responsive and friendly. She provided a detailed guidebook to her home which made it easy to access all the amenities. We would recommend it for groups such as ours or for families with children too.

We loved our stay in Melanie's house. It was clean, big and well decorated. Everything we needed was in sight, and when it wasn't, Melanie responded quickly to help us. She was kind from the beginning and it was an amazing experience. We definitely would come back!

Communications with our host prior to arrival were excellent. All queries were answered promptly and thoroughly and no request was refused. We were met at the house by a friend of the host, who showed us round and gave us her contact number in case there were any further queries whilst the host was abroad. She was also most helpful. The house was clean and warm and we were treated to champagne and chocolates on arrival - a lovely touch! The location was perfect and everything matched the description that we were given - hence no disappointments. We would recommend this lovely home in Brixton very highly. Strolling around the village and market was a treat for the senses and communications with Central London by bus and by train swift and accessible. Our first experience of Air B&B and as good as we could have possibly imagined.

Wonderful place for travelling family. Was amazed by the big kitchen fully equipped of everything that is needed for all types of cooking. Big collection of travelling books, DVD movies and even Netflix availability. Easy access to underground station and local market. Good and quick response from Camille (Melanie's neighbour/helper).

Melanie, our host was great. She gave a packet with all the info we needed about the house and the local area. Everything in the house was as expected and it was extremely clean. We enjoyed the TV and movie selection (especially for the kids!). Family friendly, with a small garden area big enough for our kids to play with a soccer ball. We mainly used the bus to get around, and it seemed that all bus lines were just steps from the house.

We had a marvelous stay at Melanie's 3 bedroom house in Brixton. This is our second time in this part of London and third time using Airbnb. It's location on the Victoria line gives very quick access to central London, and Brixton town itself has everything you need for a family visit (or otherwise): supermarkets or fresh markets, Starbucks or indy coffee shops, Brixton village for great food. The house is on a peaceful street, The beds were especially comfortable, even theWi-Fi was reliable. Would recommend for family with small children or grown - up children. The kitchen was fantastic for cooking small meals rather going out every night and the best bit was at the end the day after all our excursions around London I was able to rest in the large kitchen for a cuppa or in living room with the family. Most important, to us, was the outstanding communications from Melanie throughout, including a thorough instruction book in the flat, and the assistance from her friend Camille at check-in. Overall, highly recommended.

I'm Australian - I moved to London with my husband 6 years ago and we both loved it so much that we have stayed. I love travelling, watching live music and reading.

We have two children who keep us pretty busy - a little boy (1 year old) and a girl (4 years old).
