My house is close to Lavender Hill, Clapham Junction. It's a bright and spacious terraced cottage with a sizeable backyard, large kitchen/breakfast room and the good open plan living area. In a quiet, leafy enclave of Battersea, close to bus routes and a 12 minute walk to Clapham Junction. I'm very easy going and happy to give you run of the house while you're staying.

The space

A very homely place in a quiet leafy area. Unlike with previous rentals, the available beds are two singles (they can be put next to each other but are not the same type of bed, so do not 'turn into' a double)

Guest access

All amenities are at your disposal, including fully-equipped kitchen

Interaction with guests

As much as you like. I can do social and private, and very happy to help and advise.

My favorite thing about Matt's place was Matt's hospitality and help. The next favorite would be his large, deep tub. When my train tickets hadn't arrived at home, Matt allowed me to have them shipped to his home, and when they needed a signature to be left, he had the DHL envelope delivered to his work and we received our train tickets to finish our trip. The twin bed was comfortable for my daughter but the cot wasn't comfortable for me. It was ok for a short stay though. We used public transit and Uber. The train/bus got us within about a half mile to Matt's. The neighborhood is quiet and feels safe, we walked to Matt's after 11PM more then once. Matt is easy to talk to and work with. We enjoyed our stay there.

Matt was an amazing host. He was very helpful and was very responsive when we asked him questions. He left town for a few days and still trusted us with his house. He said we could pretty much use anything that we wanted to use. Small comfortable house.

Matt is a perfect host! He is very friendly and made us feel welcome during our whole stay. The house is very neat and tidy. The location is 15mn walk from Clapham station from which you are in about 30 minutes to Gatwick and 6 minutes to the centre (for example Victoria station). Location vs price it's perfect. If I had to name one thing that can be improved then it's that the house is very functional but misses a bit of a "bed and breakfast" look and feel. If you spend a lot of time in the city centre (like in our case) that does not matter but if you want to spend more casual time in the house/room then this place is probably less suited.

Response from Matt:
Thanks Ewout. That's probably a fair comment about the relatively limited "B&B appeal" - I'm sorry the house was somewhat cluttered (including another guest!) when you stayed. Most of my guests are out around town all day, but in fact my previous guests did enjoy relaxing in the lounge area during the evenings. There are also separate eating areas in the kitchen and the dining/living room.

This home is in a beautiful neighborhood called Battersea Park. The house was built in 1874. The home is exactly as shown in the photos. The bed was very warm and comfortable. The bus and trains are nearby. It is very easy to get to the downtown area of London. The neighborhood is very quiet. There is a nearby pub/restaurant with really good food and wait staff called Fox and Hounds. Matt was very helpful and a considerate host. I would stay here again.

Thanks for the review Sonya. The specific area is the Shaftesbury Estate in Battersea. Battersea Park is about a 15-20 minute walk.
