This beautifully presented contemporary studio flat is just 1 minute walk from Battersea Park and a short walk from the Thames. There is a separate mezzanine area with a double bed with a skylight window for nocturnal sky gazing. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. It's wonderfully quiet and is overflowing with contemporary art. There is a bike hire station just 20 seconds away, perfect for a cycle to Battersea Park or over the bridge to Chelsea and the King's Road.
The space: The flat is a brand new renovation. Everything is brand new and beautifully finished. No one lives there when it's not rented out so it's not full of the usual clutter, just the things you need to enjoy your stay.
Guest access: You will have the whole flat to yourself.
Interaction with guests: I live close by, so I'm always on hand to help with any issues or offer guidance on your stay in London.
The neighbourhood: The flat is on Albert Bridge Road and is just a 1 minute walk to the gates of Battersea Park, one of London's most beautiful parks. Just over the bridge is Chelsea with all the shops and restaurants of the King's Road, Sloane Square and Fulham Road. There are also some great pubs just seconds away: The Lighthouse, Lost & Co and The Northcote.
The nearest tube is South Kensington or Sloane Square. The 49 bus goes direct to South Kensington every 8 minutes and takes 16 minutes - the bus stop is a 2 minute walk from the flat. Or of course you could cycle - there is a Santander cycle hire station just seconds from the front door. All the tube and train stations have bike hire stations very close to them.
The nearest train stations are Battersea Park (5 minute by bus / 15 minute walk) which gets you to Victoria in 5 minutes or Queenstown Road (6 minute by bus / 16 minute walk) which get you into Waterloo in 10 minutes.
There is a great site and free app called Citymapper which will give you every possible combination of transport around London. Type in SW114PX for the location of the flat.
Getting from Heathrow Airport: There are a few ways to get to the flat from Heathrow. The easiest and quickest way is to get an Uber taxi if you have the app. It should take no more than 50 mins and cost about £35/40. Second option would be the Heathrow express train to Paddington Station (£25 one way, £22 off peak, £37 return). Here you then have to change to the underground (circle line, yellow line) to South Kensington Station and then get a bus or taxi to the flat. The cheapest option is the underground all the way from Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line to South Kensington, followed by bus.
Getting from Gatwick Airport: Take the train to Clapham Junction (do not take the Gatwick Express as this only stops at Victoria, not Clapham Junction). From Clapham Junction take a bus (6 minutes) or taxi to the flat.
Getting to Wimbledon Tennis: The quickest is to walk/cycle/bus to Battersea Park train station and get a train to Wimbledon station (there is one change at Clapham Junction) which only takes 20 mins. Or you can get the District Line tube from South Kensington to Southfields.
Parking: There is free parking on residential roads about 5 minutes walk. Parking outside the flat is free in the evenings and weekend. During the day there is metered parking with a maximum stay of 4 hours.
Other things to note: A few essentials for breakfast to get you started in the morning are supplied in the kitchen: Teas, coffee, butter, jam, spreads, cereal. There is a small convenience store just round the corner to buy fresh milk and bread.
