Fabulously managed, clean, modern flat

I spent a great deal of time searching out a flat for our 8 night, 1st time London stay ( all on Home Away). I had found one of the owner Ottile's other flats, and manager Elizabeth let me know about this larger flat (that I hadn't seen) being available, and a better fit for our family and friend traveling to London together. Having heard back from many places on Home Away and not knowing anything about the different areas of London, I had many choices. I decided to choose this lovely flat mainly based upon the responses from Elizabeth, the manager. She made the entire experience such a smooth one from first communications- from the booking and payments of the flat, to answering questions about location and proximity to other places, and even in the arrangement of a car service to and from the airport!
Owner Ottilie had coffee, tea, milk and English treats in the flat upon our arrival- what a nice treat when we arrived very late and exhausted from the United States. Her 3 flats are on the top floor, the 6th floor of the building, with great views- the Olympic Stadium can be seen out of the windows to the east. The flat is new, and was very clean and comfortable. Another plus was phone and internet!
Bow is a nice area- mainly residential. The Bow Bells Pub does not serve food, but a great traditional London pub. The owner sat with us and told us all about its history. Another great neighborhood pub, called Coburn Arms was where we ate 3 of our 7 dinners- great local flavour and food.
We feel that we found a great flat for our London stay. The price is very reasonable for 2 bedrooms, 2 baths- no hidden costs-Also, I want to mention that the living room not only has pull out sofas, but has a closing door, closing it off from the bedroom part of the flat.( Our 16 year old slept on one of the pull out sofas, and he said it was very comfortable.)
Our trip to the great city of London was wonderful. We did and saw so many things. I thank Elizabeth for all she did to arrange a perfect stay. It was nice to meet you Ottilie - you have a lovely flat!
