STAY 6 NIGHTS, GET THE 7TH NIGHT FREE!
Bruce and Cathy Gibson are the brand new owners of this wonderful London flat. We purchased from the previous owner who also rented out the property and we are continuing the tradition of being able to share our place with others. We have many repeat customers and that speaks to the charm and wonderful views from its fifth floor perch. We reside in California but consider London to be a second home and a very special place for us as a couple.
CATHY purchased this Apartment in 2018
Why CATHY chose Junction
If you want to stay in a real London neighborhood vs. touristy this is the place for you! The underground is a 5 minute walk away and you can be in central London in 15 minutes! There are great restaurants locally and an outdoor market on Saturdays in the square next to the tube station. If stairs are an issue, please note this is a 5 floor walkup with no lift service.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Very nice apartment in excellent location for our London vacation
The location and convenience of this apartment is excellent, and helped to make our London vacation very special. It is located minutes from the Tube Station (Northern Line) but also close to neighborhood stores and coffee shops that enabled us to easily get around as well as find the necessities for our meals and snacks. Cathy was very interactive and responsive throughout the whole rental process. She reached out to us right away, and continued to provide helpful information all the way through our trip. As noted, this apartment does have a number of stairs. This was not a problem for us and we rather liked having the view and upper level unit. However you need to be prepared for this, mainly with your luggage. The only suggestion that I would make is the staircase (common area) is getting a bit run-down and could use some upgrading. This is not a reflection of the apartment itself which is in very good condition with nice upgrades throughout. But this would be a nice improvement to the overall experience, but also recognize, not an easy improvement to be made by the owner. Overall we were very happy and satisfied with our choice.
Overall good value rental
Pros- good location, great views, easy access to underground and other amenities.
Cons- no lift, flat located on fifth floor with 93 steps. A real challenge.
No blinds on south window exposures, bedroom and kitchen.
Conclusion -all in all a good solid rental.
Thank you for your feedback!
I know the stairs can be an issue for some and so that's why I make a point to address that in the property description. There are window coverings available for those windows, so I will add that to my site.
Most guests are fine with that although if you want to sleep later, blocking out early morning light helps.
It’s a wonderful place. Second time I’ve stayed and I love it.
Arune was very helpful, and everything went as smoothly as could be expected. Great experience!
Perfect stay in London
We loved our stay at this apartment. The convenience of having a major tube station just a two minute walk away was amazing, we could get anywhere in central London in just 20 minutes! The apartment itself had everything that we could've asked for, from an ironing board to extra food in the cupboards. Cathy was incredibly helpful when we were settling in, more than we expected for a Christmas arrival. Overall, we'd highly recommend this property!
We know where we are going to stay on our next trip to London!
Thank you Andrey for your kind words! We look forward to having you stay again!

I chose this property because of the amazing views and the many positive reviews it had received in the past. We were not disappointed. The new owner honored the previous booking details and was very easy to work with and had great communication. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. The view is wonderful and perfect to sit at the table and have coffee in the morning.
The neighborhood is great, not touristy which we love. It is so close to the tube station and links to anywhere we needed to go in London. There are several restaurants in the neighborhood, and groceries nearby, it has everything you need right there. It is in the city, there is some street noise which we're not used to and bring ear plugs when we travel. The apartment building occupants are very quiet. It is a 5th floor walk up as advertised, so pack accordingly.
We had a wonderful stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future!
Thank you so much for the kind words and enthusiasm for our lovely flat! Since taking over from the previous owner, we have been able to continue to share this wonderful little oasis in the sky with those seeking a unique travel experience in London. Happy guests equals happy owners!
Great location and lovely apartment
The location was great! We bought a travel card and easily explored all of London from our very close subway station. The apartment with its many stairs had the most amazing view. It was great making a coffee in the well equipped kitchen each morning and looking out over the city. The apartment was quiet, with lovely bedding and two very comfortable mattresses. There were a couple of small supermarkets nearby and some restaurants. We made many meals at the apartment and always had what we needed to cook a great meal. This was our first experience using home away and it was a great one. Our girls will fondly remember their first stay in London and the place we called home.
Thank you Alexie for the kind words and for staying with us!
We want all of our guests to feel at home in our flat and it looks like we succeeded! What we like most about the flat is that it is in a real London (not tourist) neighborhood but it is only a 15-20 minute tube ride to central London.
