Comfortable, clean, spacious, bright and well situated home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

For a number of years we have been staying at this flat and other properties owned by River Habitat Realty during our annual visit to London. We are always assured of finding the flat in good order, and the management quick to respond to any questions we might have. We always look forward to our stay at these properties.

Lovely flat outside of the city of London.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in London. The apartment had easy access to London tube via a short bus ride. It was a short walk to market, pharmacy etc. We felt very safe at night to walk back from sightseeing. Francesca and Julian were very helpful in getting us situated, helping us get around and assisting in setting up airport pick up.

Very good!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Julian's flat was great. The photos on the website represent the flat as it is. It is large, clean, well-maintained and situated in a safe area. The buses for the underground or the DLR are next to the flat : from the moment we locked the door in the morning it took us about 30 minutes to go to Central London, and it didn't seem long at all. Julian has always answered my (many) questions in a short time, and the staff whom we got the keys from were very nice and helpful too. We were also given adequate information about the area (about 5-10 minutes by bus from Greenwich village). We would definitely rent the same flat again if we came back to London as a large party _ there were 7 of us : 4 adults and 3 children.

Greenwich holiday flat

  • 5 of 5

We have used River Habitat Realty to secure accommodation in Greenwich for a number of years because they can be counted upon to provide a secure, clean and pleasant place to stay. The staff is also very responsive and intent upon the renter having a great holiday rental experience. The 199 Woolwich flat was spacious, immaculate, and pleasantly decorated, with secure entry and parking. Public transportation is right outside the door, and walking to the Greenwich sights is quite easy.

Owner's Response: It is so nice to have a lovely family such as yours return to us year in and year out. I think by now you have been in half of our apartments and we are glad that the layouts for you work especially since you tend to stay longer than the normal time period....and obviously if we can get CBeebies the better although growing children means new channels :-) I am sorry that we will not see you in 2012 but look forward to seeing you again in 2013. Bye for now and thanks again for the review.

Our stay in Greenwich

  • 4 of 5

Dear Mr Jarvis,

As I said before in a previous email, our stay in London was great. Our experience was really enjoyable. The city offers a great deal of sights alonside with the tranquillity and relaxation of its wonderful parks. We find particularly enchanting Holland park and Waterlow park. But in spite of the crowd of inhabitants and tourists everything was perfectly organized. We liked very much the area of Greenwich. We would have wanted to see the cutty sark, expecially tthe kids. When we came back home we already missed the city very much. We would like to come back as soon as possible. Everything was made really special also by the accomodation which was comfortable and up to our expectations as we could guess from description and photos.

Best regards,

Mrs Pisani

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs. Pisani, Thank you very much for your recommendation. We always try wherever possible to keep up the best level of consistent service that we can and have the propery in the best state possible for our clients:- Clean apartment, clean and ironed bed linen, clean towels. The most important thing is that you got exactly what the advertisement said....nothing less. I believe you also took advantage of the airport transfer service which collected you straight from the airport with the keys to the apartment and the information pack. If you come back and you would like to stay at the same apartment, please let us know. You were wonderful guests. Mr. Jarvis

Greenwich was the home of the Equestrian Olympic events in 2012 but its story goes back much further. With is rich naval history and the old Tudor capital of England, it boasts multiple tourist attractions with charming enclaves. Crowd pleasers in Greenwich are the maritime museum, the fan museum and the painted hall in Greenwich university as well as the royal observatory in Greenwich park with its green laser shooting out in the night sky along the meridian line. For those looking for an alternative market, the weekend market in Greenwich is fantastic with hundreds of stalls selling everything from fudge bars to children’s toys.

Now the Cutty Sark ship gad been brought back to its former splendour while the day tourists can grab a pint of beer at either the Gypsy Moth. Pub or Trafalgar Tavern Pub One of the oldest), there are many more grub, gastro pubs and restaurants to try.

Not enough? Jump on the river taxi and the rest of London is at your doorstep.
