THAMES RIVER VIEW FROM BALCONY ! ! (NO BOOKING FEE)

South Bank & Southwark Apartment Rental Photos and Description

100% of people said they would stay again 'TRIP ADVISOR'

The Balcony gives a side River Thames view, so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after a walk along the stunning famous South Bank River Path.

The view DIRECTLY in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard'. A balcony with these views in London is RARE!

The River Path starts at your Front Door ! This leads to most things you will want to see ... The River is very long so make sure you are staying at the central part of it...ALWAYS check the Google map!

As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye.

On the River Path: (see my photographs)

The Shakespeare's Globe

The Tate (free entry)

St Paul's Cathedral

The Tower Bridge

London Bridge

The London Aquarium

The London Dungeon

Cross over the bridge and you are on Charing Cross Road and into 'The West End'

The studio is 441 Square Foot or 41 Square Metres.

Immaculate throughout (read our reviews) and modern.

FREE INTERNATIONAL CALLS and LOCAL and UK Calls! we have unlimited Wi Fi, which is not a luxury, it is a necessity! An i pod/mp3 docking system.

You can also use our Britsh Mobile/Cel Phone (just 'top up') at the shops

There are four ways to make coffee is you are a big coffee fan like me! The best in my opinion is the gorgeous Italian De Longhi

Expresso/Capuccino Maker then there is a stove de longi Expresso maker and a caffetiere plus normal instant with the kettle. A full tin of Illy Coffee, fresh milk (or coffee mate powder) sugar and sweetners and coissants will be waiting for you.

Why not arrive in style with our driver?

We have a gorgeous very large Silver Mercedes

No London Underground or travelling with luggage in rush hour!! Ask us for a price with your airport name!

The bathroom is modern with a lovely warm heated towel rail bath and combined shower.

Hot water is available 24 hours.

Although you can call almost any Country and anywhere in the UK from the telephone, I have also provided a cell phone/mobile phone for your use outside the apartment, so that you will not be charged International Roaming Fees on your own cell phone/mobile phone.

You can top it up at any supermarket or newsagent and many stores and garages.

Dear Guest..Welcome to London !

TWO World Famous Views from One Balcony: From the balcony and also from inside the studio, you can see Europes tallest building, 'The Shard'

From the Balcony, The River Thames.

LOVELY FLAT! PERFECT FOR VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first trip to London for both me and my friend, not only were we nervous about not knowing anything about what to expect, but also locations for what we wanted to do. This flat was perfectly located within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to do. There was a tube station right around the corner, along with a little Co-Op store that held everything we needed. The flat itself was extremely comfortable that it felt like your own place. I loved everything about it and would definitely stay there again. And hopefully will soon!

GREAT LOCATION CLOSE TO TOWER BRIDGE CHARMING APT

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this apartment and the location is fabulous. Everything you need is provided from umbrellas to an espresso machine. So comfortable. And the walk to Tower Bridge was easy and fun, right on the river. Highly recommend.

GREAT OPTION IN LONDON!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids, age 4 and 10) stayed here for one week. The apartment was a great option...well-equipped with everything we needed, and well-situated. We loved walking in the neighborhood, whether along the Thames, or to the nearby grocery store or underground station. The main bed was quite comfortable. The pull-out sofa bed was ok, but really only one person could sleep on it comfortably. If you have small kids, one could sleep on the other sofa without any problem. The owner provides wonderfully detailed instructions for getting to the apartment, and everything else you might need to know. If you will be there in the heat of the summer, be aware that it gets quite warm during the day, and there is no air-conditioning. Temperatures were abnormally warm while we were there; I'm sure it is normally comfortable. There is a fan to use to help circulate the air.
Everything in the home was clean, and well-maintained. There were some toys for the kids to play with, and lots of guide books, maps, and pamphlets. Whenever we had questions the owner was always quick to get back to us. I would highly recommend this apartment for a solo traveler, couple, or family with one or two children.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time on the south riverside, the flat is part of a modern building almost facing the Thames, the area is a residential one, thus really quite, but only 5' far from the nearest tube station and bus stop. In 1' you can walk on the Thames path and easily reach shops, restaurants and bar. The flat is extremely well-kept, very clean and really well-equipped. This is not the first time I rent a vacation flat, but Karen has been the first one providing coffee, milk and croissants for the first breakfast, and I assure that you will appreciate this a lot after a long travel.
Further, there were other little touches left in the flat, like umbrellas, free phone calls, mobile, etc.
I would recommend this location to everybody, couples, families or friends, Karen with her flat knows how to welcome you, professionally and warmly, better than any hotel or rental agency.

WONDERFUL IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
From our initial email enquiry we had prompt and professional communication from Karen, the owner, then a wonderful warm welcome to the studio. The milk and croissants and information on where to eat/ get a takeaway was appreciated by two weary travelers. Perfect for two people, workable with four if you are happy to sleep in the same room, the studio was spotlessly clean, quiet, amazingly well equipped and furnished with some quirky London touches that we loved. Exactly as shown in all the pictures we'd looked at.
The location is fantastic. On a warm day the balcony with a view of the river would be well used. We loved the walk to London Bridge tube station as it meant we could walk the short distance to Tower Bridge, through Shad Thames and along the river. Bermondsey tube station is not as picturesque a walk but is much closer, less than 5 minutes around the corner.
We have no hesitation in remcommending the studio - we already have.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed four nights in this lovely apartment just down from Tower Bridge. Very modern, comfortable and well appointed flat, 100% secure with many extras such as internet and ipod dock, greatly appreciated by our teenager. The outside balcony with fantastic views of the Shard and boats on the Thames was a welcome bonus on our weary return from a full day of sightseeing. Shad Thames was a new area of London for us, but it's hard to beat for its peace and quiet and choice of restaurants on your doorstep. Breathtaking walks along the Jubilee walkway lead you to many London landmarks and its under 10 mins walk to nearest underground and river boat connections.

The apartment is well managed and the many photos on the website are a true representation of how perfect it is. Karen, the owner, and her assistant Alex were a pleasure to deal with and were extremely helpful with check-in and our luggage. Karen also kept in touch during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed.

Next time, experience London from this wonderful apartment and you won't regret it!

Your balcony at the studio gives a side River Thames view, so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after perhaps some serious shopping - or a walk along the stunning famous South Bank River Path.

The view directly in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard' and you can now go to the viewing point at the top! It is higher than The London Eye.

Outside space is a rare luxury in London especially with a river view and iconic view! The River Path starts at your Front Door ! This leads to most things that will probably be on your list ! The River is very long - make sure you are staying at the central part of it...always check the Google map! As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye. On the Path are: The Shakespeare's Globe, The Tate (free entry) St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower Bridge, London Bridge, The Aquarium and The Saatchi Gallery. Cross over The Bridge at The Eye and you are on Charring Cross Road/Covent Garden/Theatre Land/Piccadilly Circus. A unique oppurtunity at an amazing price

Other Activities: All official London walks and bus tours start in front of the tower, just across the bridge

Golf: If you are missing your golf, there is a Golf Facility right in the middle of the City at Liverpool Street, just half an hour away, with 16 floodlit bays and various obstacles, chipping nets and Golden Holes.
