House Rules: No parties or loud music
Unfortunately we had no idea about London and the areas around it. The pictures look marvelous and the apartment is pretty good, but likely meant for bachelors and stag parties. The location was above a Co-op store, meaning the second floor. Not sure how that is considered a "Penthouse". The area was a bit scary and seemed very run down. The place had plenty of beds and would be a blast for younger people having a party. But for me we went with 3 families with small children and the pool table, etc. wasn't really the right setting. The couple that owns the place seemed really nice but it was a bit curious when they tried to take a picture of my credit card and asked for a separate deposit. I figured this would be handled by travelmob and didn't quite like the extra transactions that needed to occur.
