Overview

About the property

Spacious two bed, two bath zone 2 flat. Wif, balcony, terrace!

This gorgeous converted warehouse flat in a cobbled street five mins stroll from the new Wapping tube boasts great living space (especially in London terms) plus a large West-facing private balcony and also the use of a stunning huge riverside terrace. Both bedrooms are extremely spacious with large beds and big fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has a Juliette balcony and an en-suite with bath, loo and basin. Bedroom two has its own bathroom with shower, loo and basin. Both bathrooms come equipped with heated towel rails, top-class towels - and lots of shelf space!

The spacious living room has three sofas, a chair, TV, radio and a large designer solid cherry wood dining table with eight chairs overlooking the balcony which has a solid oak Yask table and benches to seat eight and views of Shadwell Basin. The kitchen is fully-fitted with washer/dryer, dishwasher, waste disposal, oven, hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee maker etc. Everything is provided for your comfort.

The flat is on the fourth floor with reliable lift so is suitable for older guests and those with children. As the building is old the flat does not have modern facilities for disabled guests although we have had a lady in a wheelchair stay very successfully.

  • There are two very large bedrooms; both with beautiful Heals beds, one superking (6') and one king (5') size. In each room there is a storabed, one Relyon and one Ecofirm both with immaculate top-quality mattresses. This means that each bedroom can sleep between two and four and we have photos of the bedrooms with all the beds in place and can email these on request. In the first bedroom there is plenty of room for three beds but the second bedroom is not as spacious so there is not much room left. However, there is plenty of room in the rest of the flat, balcony, communal terrace and London! There is also a double sofabed in the living room so we can sleep eight people comfortably and ten at a push. However, because there are only two bathrooms and because of the nature of the apartment block (quiet and residential - we are the only holiday let) we feel that the maximum occupancy is only really suitable for a family party. We, generally, cannot accept large parties of adults.

We are sorry that we have to impose this new condition after many years of holiday letting but after a case of recent appalling behaviour we have to protect ourselves in case of future incidents.

wonderful in Wapping

  • 5 of 5

We needed a good sized flat for entertaining many friends and relatives. This one was comfortably furnished; had all the kitchen utensils I could have needed and crockery for all the meals. Great washing machine and dryer. Beds were comfortable and the linens nice. The towels were a delight. We could not have been happier.

Wonderful flat, delightful host!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was comfortable, well appointed and suited our family perfectly. We enjoyed the neighborhood, proximity to the overground, and all of the thoughtful details were so appreciated. And, the local pub was fantastic! Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with and very helpful with regard to logistics. We truly enjoyed our time there and can't wait to return!

Lovely flat away from the busyness of the city

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (wife and 3 teenagers) loved this townhouse. The location is quiet, and the flat had everything we needed: clean, plenty of space, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, w/d, and working wifi (for the teens - haha). Elizabeth was very helpful getting us set up, and providing helpful information about the area. The train was close by, and took no time to get into the hustle and bustle of London. My family enjoys London, and we'd gladly stay again at this flat if available. One thing for potential renters to know - the picture of the bench and the Thames is a little misleading. The flat is not on the water, but across the street; and we found the access points locked when we tried. So, instead of muffins in the morning on the Thames, we had fish & chips in the evening on the Thames (at the Prospect of Whitby across the street). If you are looking for a waterfront space, this isn't it. If you're looking for a lovely, clean, and spacious flat for your family or friends, this is definitely it!

Owner's Response: Dear Jeff Thank you for the mainly lovely review but I am so disappointed at your comments about the terrace. We make it very clear in the listing that the flat has a private terrace but the riverside terrace is attached to the sister building over the road. The directions and information that the same fob to the flat front door also opens the gate were sent in advance of the stay and were featured within the laminated notes left with the keys. Of course the door would be locked as it's a private development! As we were in touch by email during your stay you could have simply asked me about access to the riverside terrace and I would have been happy to help. Best regards Elizabeth

Stunning flat within walking distance to train station

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this roomy, well appointed Wapping area flat which is London city center close via train/tube, but is in a relatively quiet neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle. The corner Italian bakery/deli is wonderful and the small stores within Wapping itself had what we needed between grocery runs. Larger grocery stores and restaurants near St. Katharine's Dock area are just a short ( beautiful!) walk away. Morning strolls across the street and down Pelican Stairs will land you on the Thames shores at low tide.( Fun sea glass hunting time of day!) It was a pleasure to work with Elizabeth who handled our reservation and subsequent needs. She is extremely professional and responded to every question we had. If you are looking for a perfect, comfortable "home away from home" while in London, then this is the spot for you! Would absolutely stay again at this flat or seek a property managed by Elizabeth the next time we are in London.

Wonderful place to stay. Great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this flat. It is in a nice residential neighborhood that is very safe and quiet. There are good places to eat within walking distance and the tube station and a bus stop are very close by. Elizabeth was wonderful to deal with and I would definitely stay here again.
