Great flat in a central location !

  • 4 of 5

This a great flat with everything you could need ! It is centrally located, close to shops, super markets, bars and the Bermondsey Tube on the Jubilee line. The flat is easy walking distance to Tower Bridge, River Thames, Butlers Wharf and the Tower of London etc !

What you see in the pictures and the overall description is what you get - I wasnt disappointed and felt entirely at home in this flat ! Its a real credit to Jan and Peter who obviously take a lot of care and pride in the flat and it's presentation.

Jan and Peter were fantastic ! They are lovely people and were very helpful. I was particulary grateful for thier help with left luggage between stays.

I stayed at this flat on several occasion whilst I was in London over a 3 month period and enjoyed every minute ! The flat is very clean and very well appointed. There are great views of Canary Wharf and the comings/goings on the River Thames !

Highly recommended. Looking forward to booking again when Im next in London !

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a fantastic one week stay in Jan & Peter's apartment. It was everything we had expected and more. The view of the Thames and Canary Wharf was spectacular. It is just a 5 minute walk to the Bermondsey tube stop and a Tesco food store.

The apartment has a very large outside patio that would be great for dining in warm weather. It is a relatively new building and the unit is equipped with everything you will need during your stay.

We would recommend this apartment to friends and family. It is our intention to stay here during our next visit to London.

Great flat in a prime location

  • 5 of 5

Traveling to London for business, I was seeking a flat close to the center of town and easily accessible to the London Underground. Not only did this property hit the mark, it had everything I would need for my stay. The owners were exceptional taking plenty of time orienting me to the area. If I ever return to London, I will be sure to check and see if this property is available for rent again.

My little piece of heavan

  • 5 of 5

My apologize for the late review. I've traveled to London several times and this place by far exceeded my expectations. We relaxed on the large patio during the day, watching all kinds of boats and ships pass by. In the evening we enjoyed the incredible view of Canary Wharf. The flat was spotless, comfortable and the owners were a joy to meet. You won't be disappointed with this apartment.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit this year. We had another wonderful week in this beautiful city. The apartment is spacious and comfortable with all the conveniences of home. There’s a large patio with views of the Thames and the city. My husband enjoyed watching the tides go in and out. There is convenient grocery shopping and access to the Thames Walk which provided restaurants and views of the city. The closest Tube station is an easy walk, and we were just one or two Tube stops from everything. We’ve taken day trips out of town, and it’s easy to transfer from the Tube to the rail lines. Peter and Janet are so gracious and welcomed us back. We felt as if we were visiting friends.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in London. The apartment was exactly as described. It is very clean and obviously well maintained. The furnishings and layout are very comfortable making for a relaxing environment. Janet and Peter were exceptionally helpful, meeting us at the apartment on our arrival and providing thorough information about the apartment and the building. Janet gave us lots of information about sights and restaurants in the area. There is an extensive set of maps and brochures in the apartment that are quite helpful for planning your visit. Numerous little thoughtful extras greatly simplified our stay - bread, butter, milk, laundry detergent... There was a temporary WIFI problem while we were there but this was something that Janet and Peter were actively working to resolve.

We would definitely stay here again. I have already mentioned the apartment to a coworker who is traveling to London later this year.
