A Home Away from Home
My wife, daughter and I spent four nights at Wren House, Flat 6 in Greenwich. Having a fairly roomy, two bedroom/two bathroom apartment with a full kitchen and washer/dryer was much nicer than staying in a cramped hotel room and was a less costly than any quality hotel we looked at in London. Michel and Trevor were very responsive hosts and left detailed instructions for everything in the apartment, as well as DLR and water taxi schedules and maps. Having the Cutty Sark DLR station literally across the street was magnificent. After long days walking through the sights of London, having the station at our doorstep was greatly appreciated. Pubs, restaurants, grocery shopping and a pharmacy were mere steps from the apartment. It was quiet and comfortable; a true home-away-from-home. And, since this was our first trip to Europe, having the convenience and the homelike atmosphere was very welcome. Security was very reassuring, too. Not that the area was rife with crime; quite the contrary. My family and I felt quite comfortable walking through the area, even at night. Access to the apartment is through a security gate and a security door, each with their own key codes. The lift to the apartment had its own security code, which would work for only the floor you were going to (for us, the second floor). A separate key to the fire escape door was also provided.
I have no doubt we will visit London again in the future, and I have no doubt we will stay at the Wren House in Greenwich. Thank you, Trevor and Michel for making our first visit to London and safe, comfortable and memorable one.
