Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, with our daughter and 2 grandchildren, recently spend a week at the 3 bedroom townhouse. It was perfect for us and was exactly as represented! We could not have been happier with our experience. We all sleep so well that we had energy to explore all day. Angela was on site and responded immediately to any questions we had. She arranged taxis from the airport and when we left. Her information was critical in helping us get around easily. We loved walking thru the park and catching a ferry into London. We all loved it and our family had a perfect vacation, largely due to the accommodations..W e will cherish our memories of our stay.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We a group of 6 adults and a child stayed at the apartment. Angela the owner go out of her way to make your stay pleasantly the rooms are comfortable the kitchen has everything that you may need and the flat location is a plus with stores and restaurant within walking distance. The metro and bus are close by.

Overall meet our needs but photos make it look nicer than it is

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very well appointed and cones equipped with everything. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Angela was extremely responsive.

However, I feel like the photos make it look nicer than it is. I know London is expensive but for what I paid for my family of five adults I was looking for better. The shower/tub setup in the master bath was a pain. I dont want to be challenged when I take a shower! Give me a full shower curtain (so the whole bathroom doesn't get soaked) and more room to not have to do a dance to clean myself. Don't show me a nice floor in the kitchen and then when I get there it is covered in foam tiles (looks cheap). Overall the place is junky, packed with a ton of stuff that takes away from the experience and is not shown in all the photos.

I did not feel comfortable at all with leaving my bags in the cramped hallway while waiting for the people who were there before me leave. That was unsettling

Did we feel safe here? Yes. Were the beds comfortable and did we sleep well? Yes. Was it clean? Yes, for the most part. Were we warm and toasty during a winter stay? Yes although one bedroom was a furnace. Did we enjoy our stay? Yrs but based on the photos I was expecting it to be nicer. I wanted both sofas to be comfortable (one was good, the other had no cushion left). I wanted a place that was more light and airy and not stuffed with furniture in every nook and cranny.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to receive this review, particularly after you said 'we had a lovely stay and your townhouse served us well.' We have hosted many families over the past seven years, and this is the first time we have ever had this kind of feedback. The majority of our guests find the apartment well equipped, comfortably furnished, stylish and personalised to create a 'home from home'. I am astonished that you would refer to it as 'junky' and packed with 'stuff'. Both couches are extremely comfortable with plenty of cushions. The ensuite shower is over a bath (as pictured) but you also had the choice of a dedicated shower room. As a service, we offered you the option to leave your bags in the downstairs entry hall because you were arriving at 10am, when guests were leaving. Despite your protests, it was not possible for you to stay in the apartment with your large suitcases while the cleaners were working - they would not have cleaned to a high standard. You mentioned that you found it expensive, but at just over £200 a night over the Christmas period, I can assure you that this 3-bedroom apartment offered you good value. I'm sorry that you weren't entirely happy, but I suspect that you have chosen to focus on the negatives in what is for most people is an extremely positive experience. All the best, Angela.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in a fab location for rowing in Putney. All the little extras from toilet roll to coffee made an easy and enjoyable self catering stay!

Hopefully we'll be back next year.

Thank you!

Excellent for families and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

I had my family come to London for my wedding in September 2016 and decided to try out this listing on HomeAway. Just getting around to writing this review now, but I'm definitely glad I went with this place as it was perfect for my needs - convenient location, perfectly suited for a family of 4 adults and 3 children, and Angela was incredibly helpful. She went above and beyond expectations as a host and her welcome manual is probably the most thorough and helpful one I've ever seen in all my travels. Just a fantastic set up for a family or larger group. Thank you Angela for helping make my wedding preparation a little bit easier!

Wonderful flat in London

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cost flat in London. Close to transportation and a couple of wonderful pubs. Everything we needed was supplied. Couldn't be more happy and would stay there again for sure. Angela even left us a bottle of Champagne for our arrival.
