We very much enjoyed our stay at this home in Plumstead. It is a roomy 3 bedroom home with a backyard. It has a washer and dishwasher and gas stove.
The decor is very nice.The home was very clean and the owner was very helpful giving us lots of instructions via email before we arrived. It is only a few blocks from a bus stop at the bottom of the hill where there is an excellent pub with an outdoor garden. Further down the street are good Chinese and Indian restaurants and markets.
We (family of five persons) spend a long weekend in the home. The first day we had some problems with the heater, but Jih-Wen and here friend Achmed helped us as quick as possible. The next day everything was clear.
Its a 3 minut walk to the first bus stop and 15 minutes to the first train stop.
There a lot of shops in the neighborhood for grocery.
The house is a little old, but very good to stay. There are enough beds.
Everything is there in the kitchen to use for cooking and cleaning.
We hade a good time. If we go back again to London we diffidently go back to this place.
Can't complain at all, used it whilst working at the o2 arena, whilst it was a 45 minute commute, the owner and house were great and were in constant contact. Will stay again for sure.
On arrival to the flat we found it to be very dirty, the worst aspect of this was in the triple bedroom the bin had urine in it, which was disgusting. Also the whole flat looked like it hadn't had a good clean in a long time.
There were spiders and cobwebs on the wall, behind the bathroom sink was filthy, there was an old shampoo bottle with layers of dust on it, that must have been there for a long time, the backs of all the doors were also really dirty and sticky. The light shades in the kitchen were thick with layers of dirt also. The bedroom floor also had dirt on it, so it obviously hadn't been cleaned since the last guests, nor had the bins been emptied as there was rubbish in them when we arrived.
The BBQ in the garden was filled with cigarette ends which made the garden smell really bad, so we were unable to sit outside.
We then tried to contact the owner, only to find they were out of the country and we had no contact details for anyone else, so goodness knows what we would have done if there was an emergency or any other problems with the flat.
We also felt the flat wasn't in great condition, there was paper peeling off the walls and paint flaking off the walls due to dampness in the triple room.
We have taken photographs of everything.
On return the owner has turned nasty and blaming us for the mess since we have complained! We couldn't have created that level of dirt unless we had stayed for a year!
Filthy, stay away from this flat. It is also in a very unpleasant area and not in Greenwich as stated.
Not worth the money! I would not recommend to my worst enemy!!
The house was great. Jih Weh was amazing. This was my first international rental and she very patiently answered all my questions and concerns. The house is huge per London standards and very comfortable and clean. My guests and I were really pleased. I will mentioned if you are geographically challenged as I am, that it is about an hour walk to the tube station and half an hour to the train station. However, there are loads of buses that run all the time. I will definitely keep it in mind for my next trip to London.
My roller derby team was in London playing a tournament at the ExCel London Center (only a 20 minute commute by National Rail + DLR). After much searching, we found this house and I'm very glad we did.
The owner is very kind and was patient enough to answer all of my millions of questions during the booking process. Everything that she set forth in the booking agreement was exactly how the house was; the beds were clean and comfortable, towels were available, the house was clean and the check out was easy as well.
The house is fairly removed from London's city center - about 20 - 30 minutes by National Rail to the London Bridge Underground, but the public transport is very easy to navigate.
Overall if my travels bring me back to London, I would definitely try to rent this house again.
Plumstead is in the borough of Greenwich. Maritime Greenwich is a World Heritage Site where you can stand with one foot in the east and one foot in the west as it is home to Royal Observatory and the prime meridian line which is internationally recognised as the official starting point for each new day. If it's the sea you enjoy then you can find out about Britain's long tradition as a sea faring nation at the National Maritime Museum. There are plenty of activities for all the family.
For the art lovers there are the galleries at the Queen's House just next to the Maritime Museum. This house was designed by Inigo Jones in 1616 as a commission to James I's wife Anne of Denmark.
And for those who simply want to do nothing Greenwich Park is ideal for relaxing and getting away from it all, while still being in London. There is so much to visit that there is something for everyone: both adults and children will enjoy their stay here!
By train from Plumstead to London Bridge is 22 minutes.
DLR from Woolwich Arsenal to Bank is 22 minutes
