Overview

About the property

Attractive, Spacious 1 Bed Apt Conveniently Located For Business Or Sightseeing

Lovely apartment recently fully refurbished to a high specification - light, airy and spacious. Such a large lounge is very unusual in a London apartment - approx 5.75 x 3.8 meters (17 x 12 ft).

Stylish, chic, modern décor and furniture, with high quality fittings throughout. Home-from-home, with supermarket literally underneath. Free WiFi. Sky Television. Climate/temperature controlled lounge, for warming up or cooling down. Walking distance from several cafés, restaurants, pubs and all forms of public transport. Safe, purpose-built block with 2 elevators and weekday concierge. Temporary gym membership available.

Situated in the "actual" City of London, on the north side of the Thames, we are literally 2 mins walk to Tower Bridge, 4 mins Tower Gateway for Docklands Light Railway, 5 mins Tower Hill tube and Tower Pier for river taxis, 5 mins Fenchurch Street Station, 5 mins Aldgate tube - and extremely handy for a range of London buses. Lovely and peaceful large secluded garden with bench seats and bushes, trees & shrubs - just 1 minute from the apartment.

*Purpose-built block with secure video entry system, 2 elevators, weekday concierge.

* Gorgeous large lounge with comfortable leather sofa and chair, round glass dining table & 4 chairs, plus side tables and wide flat-screen TV.

* Bedroom with extremely comfortable English King size bed (150 cm/5 ft wide and 2 meter/6 ft 6 ins long), plenty of drawers & wardrobe hanging space, TV and black-out blinds. High quality 100% cotton bedding.

* Full kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and plenty of crockery and cutlery.

* Attractive bathroom with full bath + shower head and glass screen. Soft-close toilet seat and vanity unit doors. Towel radiator and towel rack.

No extra charges, as your rental payment includes all linen, towels, cleaning and running costs.

Normal check-in is after 16.00 hours and check-out is required by 10.00 hours, unless otherwise agreed. This is purely in order that the cleaning and preparation of the apartment is not jeopardised for the next guest. At less busy times we can and will be more flexible.

We, or our representative, will 'meet & greet' you on arrival, and will give you keys and information on the apartment and the area, attuned to you personally, with the intention of you getting the best from your London visit.

The apartment is very handy for cafés, pubs and restaurants and has many in close proximity. There is a Tesco supermarket underneath the block, just round the corner, and an ATM cash point. There is also a Sainsbury supermarket within 100 yards. These supermarkets are open 7 days a week from early morning until 9pm or 10pm – slightly earlier close on Sundays.

The London public transport scene is terrific these days, and it is probably a good idea to purchase a Travel Card, which will offer unlimited travel on buses, tubes and the Docklands Light Railway, plus discounts on the Emirates cable car and Thames river buses. A Travel Card can be purchased, in advance of your visit, for varying lengths of time – through the Transport for London website. If you do not have time for it to be mailed to you, it can be sent to the apartment address, where we will hold it for your visit.

About Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick

We used to live here in the City and loved it, but now we live outside London and have decided to offer the apartment for rental by discerning visitors to London.

Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick chose London

It is a great apartment, in a very convenient part of London. Getting around couldn't be easier as we are so close to all means of transport - and London public transport these days is really fabulous. There are lots of restaurants, bistros, coffee shops and old-fashioned English pubs nearby. Grocery store, ATM cash machine and Gym are underneath the block.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is situated in a nice quiet purpose built block. Secure video entry system. Concierge weekdays 08.00 to 16.00 hours. Two elevators. Lovely entrance lobby.

Don't Miss It

  • 5 of 5

We are an American professional couple in our mid 60's and have traveled extensively in Europe and rented apartments. Without a doubt, this is our favorite. I reviewed over fifty apartments before reserving this one. It is clean, bright, comfortable and air-conditioned (a rarity in London and welcome during the heat wave that occurred while we were there) with a queen size very comfortable bed, doorman and security locks, absolutely quiet, new appliances (frig, dishwasher, clothes washer, stove and oven with everything you could possibly desire in the way of kitchen utensils and pots, plans and plates) and elevator within 2 blocks of three different tube entrances - we could go on and on. Very safe neighborhood, close to food stores. Although not a luxury apartment it is very high end. Straight forward , accurate photography (the bed room is great with more storage closets than you could possibly use although there is no picture in the ad). Do not buy any London guides either - there are a dozen or more. The host Bonnie and Carol her manager: you could not find nicer, more caring people. We had a health crisis and their kindness, caring and generosity are without equal; the help they gave to us was far beyond any that could ever be expected. More than just thankful, we are grateful to them for the help they gave to us who were after all just strangers.

Fantastic Experience in Central London!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! I could not say enough great things about this flat and it's manager, Bonnie. Everything you could possibly need is there. Very nicely appointed. The bed and pillows make for a solid night's sleep. Quiet neighborhood and yet we were not far from the Tower Hill Station, which took us everywhere - Prime location! Bonnie even arranged a driver, who is a friend, for us so we had no worries being picked up from the airport or getting to another airport the following weekend. John was wonderful as well! I would highly recommend this flat to anyone. Bonnie was so kind and made it so easy for us coming from the states. She took her time to offer advice. If you are going to London - grab up this gem.

Many Thanks from Arizona,

Tasha and Daniel

comfortable, charming

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at this VRBO for about 10 days in August, 2017--and as advertised, it is spacious and modern...right at the top of rental apartments we've used in Europe and (or) the US....has EVERYTHING you need in an apartment, including all sorts of cutlery and cooking tools, table service &c....quick and convenient elevator; building is clean and kept in good shape...there is a Tesco in the building (around the corner) and a Sansbury's a block or so away...10-minute walk to Aldgate and East Aldgate stations, a little longer than that to Tower Hill station. ONLY drawback is there are few restaurants open on the weekends.
