Overview

Canary Wharf & Docklands House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 double bedroom period house in the heart of East London

The house is a former workers terraced cottage built in the 1890s. Recently renovated to a very high standard the house comprises 2 good sized double bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, lounge, dining area, hall and small back yard. The house can sleep 4 people comfortably, one bedroom has a double bed and the other a king size which can be converted into 2 twin beds if necessary, there is also the option of an additional 2 children/teenagers or 1 large adult on the sofa bed in the lounge.

The house would be an ideal choice for a family holiday in London due to the excellent transport links to all of the major tourist attractions. Mile End tube station is a 3 minute walk and is served by 3 different tube lines which means journey times to Tower of London of 12 mins, The London Eye 20 mins, The West End 15 mins and Buckingham Palace 25 mins. Also suitable for business travellers working in the Canary Wharf area or the financial district 10 minutes.

The house is situated in the heart of vibrant and multicultural East London, close to Queen Mary's University and a very short bus or tube ride down to Brick Lane and all of the wonderful curry restaurants. Within walking distance of the house are plenty of grocery stores, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The Regents Canal is 2 minutes away and makes a lovely walk up to Victoria Park and Victoria Park Village which is a charming area with lots of nice cafes, shops and restaurants.

Parking outside the house is free during evenings and weekends, but weekdays it is residents only. We can provide temporary parking cards valid for 4 hours at a time for short stays, but for longer stays a parking permit is required which costs £5 a day plus a one off £10 processing fee, please contact the owners in advance to arrange this.

Comfortable stay!

  • 4 of 5
Nice house in a less pretty but nice and quiet part of London. Comfortable with pretty much everything you could need and ideal for two couples travelling together as we were. Maybe the only thing to criticise is that the loo is difficult to flush, all four of us found this, we got the knack in the end, and obviously this is not a huge deal and doesn't spoil the stay but maybe a note in the house folder with a warning would be a good idea.

The house is well located near tube and bus links. We did walk to the Tower of London which was a straight forward walk, although fairly lengthy at going on for an hour, so probably best to use the tube. There are plenty of small shops nearby in practically every direction to pick up bits and pieces like milk if you need them.

All in all I would recommend the house as base for a trip into town, especially if there are a few of you travelling together as it gives you plenty of room and flexibility which you just don't get in a hotel.

Perfect place to stay w/ a very nice/helpful owner

  • 5 of 5
The flat is located in a quiet neighborhood- even with windows open, we heard nothing at night. Very close to 3 tube lines which was great for sight seeing.
The flat was supplied with everything we needed, and Claire was very responsive, answering emailed questions very quickly.

Highly recommend this rental!

Excellent place to stay in London!

  • 5 of 5
My son, grandson & I stayed here for 3 nights and we all felt right at home thanks to Claire's attention to detail in the appearance of her flat, her greetings when we arrived and the amount of information left for the tourists. The tube station is close by as well as many restaurants which were great and we enjoyed the diversity of the neighborhood.

Here's a great option if you want a convenient, fully equipped, clean, safe place to call home when you're in London. The Mile End area in East London is a little off the tourist map, but we found it surprisingly easy and centrally located--a quick walk to both the central London subway line and direct bus routes into the heart of everything. Lots of dining and good groceries all around. There are also low-cost rental bikes right around the corner; a fantastic and inexpensive way to explore.

Claire met us and made us feel at home right away. She had lots of info about the neighborhood, and gave me tips on where I could do morning runs: adjacent Mile End Park follows a scenic canal, and links to expansive (and beautiful) Victoria Park--all very accessible and safe. We had TONS of room; the fully equipped and refurbished kitchen was perfect, and the big bathroom was a real luxury. Almost too much room for my husband and university-age daughter. It was a delightful stay all around--especially since I'm a light sleeper (quiet nights and big comfy beds a real plus).

Four instead of five stars only because the location is a little rough--definitely not Kensington! But we ended up loving it. And who wants to waste money on fancy chandeliers and pricey addresses when you can have a place as appealing as this one? Thanks, Claire--we hope to be back again soon.

Nice old house, wonderful renovated

  • 5 of 5
We have been there for 4 nights and enjoied our time in London in this property. We found everything as you can see it on the pictures. Its only a few minutes away from the tube-station mile end from where you have only about 20 minutes to the citiy of London. When you travel via Stansted you have a good connection with Stansted Express to tube Station Liverpoolstreet which is only two stations away from mile-end.
If you like to cook by yourself this property is a very good choice because the kitchen is excellent equipped and in the nearer neighbourhood are several possibilities for shopping.
What could be improved ? The mattress in the smaller bedroom is really hard and i would recommend to change it. Also the bed-sofa is not really suitable for two people.
Resume: Everything was okay and we could recommend this property without restriction.
Thanks to Claire who was a very friendly landlord and responded always immediately .

Owner's Response: Hi Dieter, thanks for taking the time to post a review, I'm glad you had a lovely time in London. Regarding the matress, it is a tricky one as everyone has their own preference as to how firm/soft they like them, I did just go for a medium firm mattress but I'm sorry it was not to your liking. The sofa bed in the lounge is a standard medium from John Lewis and is just meant as an additional guest bed. Two people have slept on it several times (including my partner and I). Thanks. Claire

The house is in a great location for public transport serving all parts of London. It is just a 3 minute walk to Mile End tube station which is on the Central, District and Hammersmith and City lines, so it is just one stop to the Olympic Park at Stratford, 5 minutes to Liverpool Street and 12 minutes into Oxford Street. There are also lots of buses serving all parts of East and Central London.

Within a short walk of the house is Victoria Park and all the wonderful cafes, pubs and shops of Victoria Park Village. There are several small shops and a newsagents at the end of the street and a Budgens supermarket a 4 minute walk from the house.
