Channelling the crisp, clean lines and contemporary cosiness of Danish 'hygge', this flat in Battersea is something special. Although the design is fairly modern, it radiates a warm and homely feeling that's hard to resist. We adore how the painted floorboards add subtle pops of colour to the living area – it's a unique feature that's the perfect amount of whimsy. The sumptuous sofa is as inviting as it looks, and with a Sonos sound system, cuddling up for a film night is a given. Whether you want to work from home at the desk, whip up a delicious meal in the fully-equipped kitchen or while away the summer evenings out in the private garden, this home has more than enough room to make yourself comfortable. Add in the range of mod-cons – such as a sleek rainfall shower and a PS4 – as well as the excellent Battersea location and what's not to like? Spend your days strolling around Battersea Park (ten minutes away on foot), sipping coffee at the cafes and eateries on Battersea Park Road (three minutes away) or shopping along the iconic King's Road in Chelsea (half an hour walk). To get into London's buzzing centre, hop on the bus (there's a stop right around the corner) and you'll be in Victoria in twenty minutes or wander over to Clapham Junction Station and take a train into Waterloo.
Home truths: *This is the host's actual home, so expect to find personal possessions as well as locked doors and cupboards for storage
*The host also has a pet dog – they won't be there during your stay but this might not be suitable for those with allergies
*Window guards can be provided if you're travelling with little ones
*There's paid street parking nearby, but we don't think a car is needed – a bus runs straight past the house that takes you to Victoria, and Clapham Junction Station is a ten-minute walk
*Your host won't be there to greet you, but you can let yourself in via the lockbox
*There's one bicycle available for guests to use
