Guestbook comments from the owner

This studio is the perfect place for a single individual or a couple to use as a home base while staying in London. Located within easy walking distance of multiple transportation options (including tube, bus, and regional rail), it is convenient to not only the heart of London, but also the center of the charming and safe neighborhood of Putney. Angela, the landlord, is a gracious hostess and provides lots of helpful information and is readily available when and if you need her. I greatly enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to others.

Helpful host good accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This place is small the host made good use of the space it had everything we needed. Its a bit of a commute to get into central London but the host made it very easy to figure out with detailed directions and public transit routes to popular attractions and cities. Get a oyster card the minute you arrive from a train station or the Convenient store around the corner from the apartment to use the bus. Convenient bus and train stations a quick walking distance. Convenience store and pubs walking distance around the corner from the house. Quiet neighbors. The host made us feel welcome with little things most rentals won't provide such as coffee, cream, salt/pepper, olive oil, sugar, tea just little things that make a stay more enjoyable. Make sure you buy toilet paper There is one roll for your stay. Really appreciate the welcome folder with lots of helpful information to make a tourist stay simpler

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad you found the directions useful, you can get into central London (eg Victoria) in about 20 minutes when you take the right routes, but mostly it takes 30-35 depending on where you are going - fairly typical for most rentals in Zone 2, and this is reflected in the price! Sorry about the toilet paper, we provide 2 rolls (one on the holder, one spare), and it's usually enough as a starter for stays of 3-4 nights. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!

Wonderful customer care!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our four night stay in this tiny studio. Angela was quickly attentive to our needs. We had a few glitches with the accommodations, and she responded with answers and assistance usually within the hour.

The studio was a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest tube station. From there a 15-20 minute ride into central London attractions. Something to keep in mind as you plan your stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! It does take about 11-12 minutes to walk to the tube, but there are much faster ways to the centre via fast train (eg 14 minutes to Waterloo) as outlined in the folder - and Londoners use all forms of transport to get around the city, using the Oyster Card. Another option is the river ferry, a 5 min walk and just 15 minutes to Chelsea, 25 min to Westminster!

Wonderful Flat in nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in the wonderful flat not too far from all the happenings in London. The train was close by, we prefer to travel like locals. There was a wonderful little pub in walking distance and a convenience store for essentials. There was also a darling little street with places to eat and shop nearby.

Although we did not meet the owner, Angela, she answered any questions we had quickly.

Everything we needed was provided. Felt very safe. Would definitely recommend.

The flat is located in zone 2 Inner London, just 14 minutes by train to central London (Waterloo), 10 minute bus ride from Wimbledon, and 25 minutes by bus/train to Victoria. District Line tube is 10-11min away. A few minutes' walk away is the river Thames, a tree-lined riverside park, excellent riverside restaurants, and several pubs, while the lively Old York Road restaurant and cafe district is a 7 minute walk away. Waterloo is the home of Southbank, a picturesque riverside restaurant and shopping district, the London Eye, and Imax. A short walk will take you to Westminster Bridge, over the Thames to see the famous Big Ben and Houses of Parliament, then further up to Buckingham Palace and Park Lane. Over the footway is The Strand, Trafalgar Square, Soho, Picadilly and Covent Garden. Further to the right is the Modern Tate, and you can cross the famous Millennium Bridge to reach St Paul's Cathedral in London.
