The South East England region
Greater London is the top-level administrative division of England covering London. It was created in 1965 and spans the City of London and the 32 London boroughs. This territory is coterminate with the London Government Office Region and the London European Parliament constituency. The region has by far the highest GVA per capita in the United Kingdom. It covers 1,572 km2 (607 sq mi) and had a 2009 mid-year estimated population of 7,753,600. The term Greater London was in use before 1965 to refer to a variously defined area, larger than the County of London and often similar to the Metropolitan Police District.
In addition to its administrative and statistical functions, Greater London (excluding the City of London) is one of the 48 ceremonial counties of England, and is under the Greater London Lieutenancy.
Central London/Zone 2
The property is close to Battersea Village, Battersea Park and Clapham all offering trendy restaurants and lively night life. A brief walk is minutes to the River Thames with bars and restaurants servicing parts of the public footpath. The King's Road, Chelsea and Waterloo are 10 minutes away by public transport.

"An Excellent Family Accommodation"
When I moved into this accommodation, I was kind of sceptical about its surroundings, approach to the apartment and overall environment. However, the apartment itself was extremely well laid out, cate… More

"Do not hesitate to book this flat!"
We are a Swiss family with three children (7, 11 and 13) who stayed in this flat for two weeks in July.
As many have mentioned before, the sordid-looking surroundings (staircase, lift) are a real put-off and the building itself is an eyesore, but as the owner was honest about this we knew what to expect. A lot of families (of African origin) with small children live in this housing estate and we never encountered anything strange or felt unsafe.
The flat is tastefully decorated and furnished, very bright and has everything you need: Washing machine/tumble dryer, dishwasher, deep freezer, PlayStation, a wide range of books, umbrellas, iron etc.! Besides, you have a stunning view, you can even see the London Eye. It is perfect for four people, five is o.k. (but we wonder where you would put up the 6th person).
Dejan was always on time, very polite, helpful and correct and he provided us with a very generous welcome pack. After a long journey (we came to London by train) we were so grateful that shopping wasn't the first thing we had to do.
If you are not familiar with the London public transport system, you might find it a drawback that there is no tube station nearby. But Clapham Station is just a stone's throw away and there are trains to Victoria and Waterloo every 2-4 minutes. (But be aware that children (>5) have to pay on Southern and Southwestern train services!)
We would definitely recommend that you stay with Dejan!

"Perfect for a London weekend with friends"
As read on other reviews, the street and the appearance of the building don't do justice to the gem inside. Such a lovely, new and nicely decorated flat with all amenities (hair drier, washing machine and dishwasher, oyster cards, umbrellas, iphone/ipod dock, dvds, towels, satelite tv...).
The welcome pack was amazing (plenty of fruit and everything you need for an English breakfast: eggs, milk, 3 types of juice, tomatoes, 2 types of bread, ham, cheese, mozzarella...).
The flat is very cozy, warm and clean. Really quite and with lovely views of many iconic London buildings. The neighbourhood feels safe, we never saw anything weird, even walking at very early hours in the morning/very late at night.
3min walk to Grant Road exit of Clapham Junction Station, perfect public transport links by train and overground. 2 min walk to several bus stops.
Dejan (flat owner) was always nice, prompt and correct when arranging the contract and appointment on arrival. Unfortunately he was on holiday on the dates of our stay, but his friend, Mr Kenade (very nice and chatty) took care of us.
I'd also say it's a nice flat for a girls stay since it has so many mirrors along the corridor and in the rooms.
Lovely stay, I will recommend it and I would go back tomorrow!
