PERFECT WITH A FANTASTIC VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This spacious, fully-equipped appartment is perfect as a base when visiting London. Riverbus is just at your doorstep. The owner was there to greed us and was very helpful. We spent Christmas and New Years eve there, and therefore it was perfect with spacious dinner seating for 6 persons. And what a fantastic view - I took a picture, so I could bring it home with me :)

A GEM~!

  • 5 of 5
This duplex flat has it all! Location! Comfort! and Value!

This waterfront apartment is spacious, comfortable and inviting. As a family with two teenagers, we had more than enough room spread out. The apartment boasts floor to ceiling windows overlooking Canary Wharf and a balcony to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

The Riverbus , steps away from the front door, had great value with a commuter ticket and a fabulous way to get into town. We were 10 minutes away from London Bridge from everything.

Josephine was helpful and gracious in every way; a perfect host for our holiday and very accessible. We would definitely plan on returning.

We would recommend this apartment for a family, a group of single travelers or working commuters. This apartment has it all.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!

  • 5 of 5
It was all that and more. When we arrived for our ten day stay, Josephine was there and even helped us with our luggage. We were a party of three,myself, my daughter and sister. We each had our own room, a bonus for sure. I was totally in awe with the views! The view from the dining area is spectacular, I spent my time there everyday and night just enjoying the views from the river. Even though there is a telly upstairs I entertained myself with the awesome river view.My daughter and I watched the New Year's Eve fireworks display from the upstairs balcony. To hear Big Ben chime at the stroke of midnight was awesome! The place was extremely clean and all the amenities mentioned were there. We took the river taxi each day, it was literally outside the door! I was thrilled with that. Canada Water Tube Station, Boot's and Tesco is a 15 minute walk away on a path clearly mapped. Bus 199 is a few minutes walk from the flat, a very good option too.Just walking around the area taking pics was an adventure.I must say Josephine is the nicest lady, she made sure we knew how to use the kitchen appliances,heating,door locks etc. She even had 2 sets of keys and took us to Tesco upon our arrival! It was a pleasure doing business with her and I would love to stay in her lovely flat again. Be assured you will get your money's worth with this one, A definite 5 star rating.

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
I booked the apartment for a family celebration for the weekend of our daughters 18th birthday. Her boyfriend and our 16 year old son also came. Because of the party size the apartment was perfect - everyone had a bed room. The owner met us on arrival on took us in - WOW. Although it was dark the view was spectacular, the view across the Thames towards the financial district was wonderful - the photos do not do it justice. In the day the view from the rear balcony was equally good, gherkin, shard and Battersea power station could all be seen! A real sun trap too. I would be happy just watching the world go by on the river! There was no traffic noise, the furnishings were all high quality and the little touches like leaving milk in the fridge all made our stay pleasant. Just out side the door is the riverboat, £7 per trip but cheaper if you have a travel ticket. Nearby is a 24 hour Tesco and bowling/restaurants etc. The tube is a 15 minute walk, but all on the flat so not difficult. I would recommend this apartment to any party of up to 6, there is plenty of space, it is well maintained and the owner was very helpful, thank you for a great break, you helped to make our weekend a wonderful experience - an 18th birthday not to be forgotten!

GOOD PICK FOR MULTIPLE TRAVELERS

  • 5 of 5
This three-bedroom flat was perfect for our sister's getaway. It's clean, comfortable, and has all the conveniences. It's a quiet spot away from the bustle of the city -- a nice place to relax after a long day of activities.

The views are fabulous!
The beds are comfortable.
Kitchen is fully outfitted.
Host provided maps and river bus/Underground schedules.
Having the Thames Clipper river-bus pier right next to the building is so convenient - we found this a very quick way to get around London.

The grocery store is a bit of a walk, but they have a direct-connect phone to the neighborhood taxi service so we had a ride back within minutes. One trip to the market and we were set for the week.

I would recommend this flat to family and friends.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
This apartment truly deserves the 5* ratings that it consistently receives from all of the reviewers to date. It is immaculately clean, incredibly spacious and it is situated in a beautiful, quiet area. The views of the river are stunning.

For a family of six, holiday accommodation is typically cramped, but this apartment, situated over two floors, felt just like a good-sized house. Everything in the apartment was so clean and fresh, which is not typical of rented holiday accommodation either. Having three double bedrooms was a big bonus also. So many of the London apartments that we reviewed before our trip had only two double bedrooms with a sofa bed in the living room for six people - not an ideal situation for parents with children who go to bed earlier than them. There is a lovely balcony off the upstairs living room,, which gets the sun all evening. There's a table and chairs out there also, if you wanted to eat outside, weather permitting. There's loads of storage room in the bedrooms, and the kitchen was equipped with everything you would need. So, in terms of the standard of the accomodation it is definitely an A* from us for this superb apartment.

In terms of location, it is situated in a lovely quiet area, again perfect for a family with young children. The river bus stops right outside the door. The tube station is a very pleasant walk (10-12mins) away via the docks/marina. There is a huge 24h Tesco on the way to the tube station - brilliant if you want to do your own catering. Our overall feeling when walking around the area was one of tranquility and we felt very safe - a priority when taking your childen on holiday.

We cannot praise or thank Josephine enough for all of her help and assistance to us. She was so brilliant to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her to help us with. We would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to London, especially if you are travelling with children. We look forward to taking our family back there, hopefully soon.
