About Benet Allen

We bought the flat in 2007 and lived in it until 2009 – when Clare started working in the West Country - she works on TV dramas for the German company ZDF - and Benet went to the Gulf - I worked as a TV news producer and now fly and film from a helicopter. Since we left London, we have had residential tenants, and the flat was spruced up in April 2012 for you, our holiday visitors.

Benet Allen purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Benet Allen chose Canary Wharf & Docklands

We both worked in London - Clare in various different parts of the city, but Benet as a reporter for Reuters at Canary Wharf, just ten minutes walk away.

What makes this apartment unique

The epic view to the west - sunsets over the city, or just to watch the rain showers coming in, the view is what sets our apartment apart!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything that you see in the presentation of the house is true, its wonderful, unforgettable view! For us, everything was done on schedule, routes and descriptions of the house that Mr. Bennet had supplied us in advance proved to be precise and exact. I want to assure those who plan to go there, you will not receive any disappointment and if there will be any problems be assured that Mr. Bennet will solve it because he is a true gentleman. Even my son was impressed when he saw the house and its view, and that, currently, does not live properly in a palace in London, decided to move house, In conclusion, I think that soon I return to London, first to see my son but also, perhaps, to review this beautiful city and its splendid view from the apartment of Mr. Bennet.

Great Location & fantastic Views

Great Location & fantastic Views
  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the apartment for 9 nights in October. It was excellent and easily one of the best apartments we stayed in during our 8 weeks travelling through Europe. The host Benet was excellent and allowed us to extend our stay by another night when requested. The apartment is fantastic for families. It has three good sized rooms, comfortable beds and lovely kitchen with everything you need for a holiday. The apartment is located in a nice suburb surrounded by some shops and restaurants. The Canary Wharf station is only 15 minutes easy walk and that is a further 4 stops away and your in London Bridge ! Great place to come home to each night and we just found it to be perfect for our family. The views are fantastic and something you could spend hours looking at. For the price, YOU wont get better valued accomadation in London.

Definately recommend this place. Thank you Benet for allowing my family to enjoy a great holiday in London.

What views!

  • 5 of 5
Friends and I spent a wonderful week in Benet's great flat. The flat was clean and had everything we needed for the week. The views from any window in the flat are spectacular! The flat is within easy walking distance to the tube and DLR. There is a great little store down the street to pick up any groceries you might need. This was our first experience renting instead of staying in a hotel. Benet was very helpful with any questions we had and responded promptly. I would strongly recommend this flat to anyone!

Lovely flat, great location, perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Benet and Clare's flat, and going to the big smoke with 3 kids is a little daunting...However communication and arrangements were very straight forward, everything was there that we needed, the locality is perfect, canary wharf is an amazing place. Buses (D7 and 135) to the DLR/Jubliee Line took 2 minutes and run every 8-10, it has a nearby supermarket etc. The flat was clean and well kept and it has indeed has stunning views out to the west of London. it made the whole trip a lot easier and worthwhile. I Would not hesitate to recommend to anybody else, and is great for exploring London.

Great view

  • 4 of 5
Our family (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) spent a week in the nice apartment. The pictures give a good idea of the place, the second and third bedrooms are similar to each other. The view from the balcony is great, especially in the evening.

The kitchen is well equiped, and we cooked some meals and breakfast every day. We also tried the local fish&chips (they have huge portions, two would have been more than enough for four) and one of the indian take aways.

The only minus (hence the four stars) is for the missing DVD and VHS players that are mentinoned in the Enetertainment section of the apartements description. Not that we did really miss them, as we had so many things to do. And the cable TV was quite enough four our TV needs.

Benent sent us good and clear instructions on how to get there, and also closer info about the apartement in advance.

Would be happy to stay here again, and also to recomend it to friends.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
My family came to London to support my son who was running in the London Marathon. It was very comfortable accommodation and very easy to get to all the transport links to get around London.

It was also very convenient for Canary Wharf with plenty of restaurants to choose from.

The owners instructions and suggestions made the apartment very easy to find and all facilities were easy to use.

Also the views from the apartment were amazing.

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5
As a family of 5 we needed a good 3 bedroom property and this was most suitable. So much better than staying in a hotel and the view especially at night is special. Benet and Clare have taken great care to give excellent instructions about the flat and walking route. The apartment is very comfortable, clean and quite. When next visiting London we will look to book with Benet and Clare.
