I have been a holiday home owner with HomeAway since 2010, and have always achieved five star reviews. I have recently changed properties to this lovely apartment in the beautiful historic centre of Royal Greenwich, having always loved the area. Myself and my husband, Kevin, live only twenty minutes away from the apartment, so are always on hand, if needed, to make sure our guests are comfortable.

Mary Porter-Riley purchased this apartment in 2013

Maritime Greenwich has joined a unique club of the most important and natural places on earth - special places which people are encouraged to visit and explore now and for generations to come.

The Royal Observatory, home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian line, is one of the most important historic scientific sites in the world. It was founded by Charles II in 1675 and is, by international decree, the official starting point for each new day, year and millennium (at the stroke of midnight GMT as measured from the Prime Meridian).

Visitors to the Observatory can stand in both the eastern and western hemispheres simultaneously by placing their feet either side of the Prime Meridian – the centre of world time and space.

The Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site comprises the historic town centre, Royal Park and related institutional buildings, and was inscribed by the World Heritage Convention.

The ensemble of buildings at Greenwich and their landscape setting, including the Royal Park, are a potent architectural symbol of English artistic, scientific and other institutional endeavour, notably from the 17th to late 19th centuries.

Greenwich Park hosts the Prime Meridian Line and Royal Observatory as well as being part of the Greenwich Maritime World Heritage Site which is home to The National Maritime Museum and Old Royal Naval College.

The oldest enclosed Royal Park, Greenwich dates back to 1427 and offers spectacular views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond.

The vibrant town centre has so much to offer, with its historic covered market, its 'Clock Tower' bric-a-brac market and it's many unique shops, theatres, cinemas and restaurants.

All the attractions mentioned are an easy and very pleasant walk from the apartment.

This lovely Period Property is just moments from all Greenwich has to offer. Step outside the front door and you are spoilt for choice on how to spend your day!

Convenient for London's major airports, typical travelling times are just - Gatwick 48 mins, Heathrow 60 mins, London City 24 mins.

TÄTÄ VOI LÄMPIMÄSTI SUOSITELLA!

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely apartment in Greenwich proved to be the perfect location for our four days in London. The flat was exactly as pictured, clean and cosy, and the surrounding neighborhood is great ...close to metro, shops and restaurants. Mary is a very friendly owner.

Asunto on juuri sellainen kuin miltä kuvissa näyttää, siisti ja mukava. Sijainti on loistava metroaseman, kauppojen ja ravintoloiden vieressä. Omistaja Mary on ystävällinen ja joustava. Saimme sovittua esim. avainten noutamisen ja luovutuksen lentoaikataulujemme mukaan. Wi-fi toimi hyvin. Asunnossa oli riittävät ohjeet ja esitteet.

A PERFECT LITTLE GEM IN THE HEART OF GREENWICH!

  • 5 out of 5
My partner and I rented this wonderful apartment for 4 days in April as I was running the London marathon. We could not have wished for a more fantastic stay! Firstly the owner Mary was excellent right through from the booking process to when we left. Nothing was too much trouble and we really felt happy to be staying at the property, she met us there on arrival and talked us through all we needed to know about the apartment and the area. Coffee, tea,fresh milk and biscuits were provided which was a nice touch. The property itself is exactly as represented in the advert. It is furnished to a high standard and provides a wonderful compact space for two! The way the flat is configured means there's plenty of room to cook, eat and relax. The wifi connection was fast and reliable. The location of the bedroom meant there was no noise disruption and the bed itself was very comfortable.
The location of the apartment is excellent! You have all you need on your door step! Greenwich itself is buzzing with eateries,bars,shops and markets! We would have happily have stayed there for an entire week! There's an M & S, sainsburys and waitrose all within a short walk of the apartment. In addition there are a number of independent bakeries nearby as well as the wonderful Greenwich market. The location of the apartment is very convenient for exploring The rest of London as the catty sark DLR and Greenwich train station are moments away from the front door, we were in Central London within 20 minutes! You can catch the riverboat round the corner from the apartment for a great way to travel to Central London and take in the sights. It was also perfectly located for getting to the start of the marathon, it meant I had a stress free walk through the park to get to the start line.
As mentioned there are many wonderful places to eat in the area! We tried the noodle bar directly across the road from the apartment, it might not be much to look at from outside but the food was delicious and very reasonably priced! We also ate at the mitre hotel, the menu was varied, the food tasty and again good value for money. We had a few cocktails in desperados around the corner and the atmosphere was fun and friendly!
All in all this is a fabulous property in a lively but relaxed area of London providing the perfect base to explore this wonderful city!
I hope we will visit London again soon and I'll certainly be booking this property!

WONDERFUL PIED A TERRE!

  • 5 out of 5
Our daughter and I stayed here for over three weeks - as she was relocating to London to live/work. The location was perfect. DLR outside the door practically, beautiful parks to walk/jog in and relax in downtime, and huge variety of grocery shops, dining options and tourist activities close by, made this a perfect place for a visit to London. Greenwich is like a county town rather than part of Greater London. Loved the long waterfront, where we discovered the marvellous Cutty Sark (pub for dining) beautiful views and great food. Also loved Jamies Italian restaurant, the Mitre Pub, the Gypsy Moth on a sunny day and enjoyed a super burger at Byrons. The beautiful Cutty Sark clipper was lovely to just look at every time I went to Marks and Spencers for our groceries! I noticed on last day we can even see the tip of two of the masts from the living room! So that is the location. The flat is indeed cosy, but we loved it, it felt like home for the time we were there, very clean and modern, enough for our needs for cooking/dining, and the owners were absolutely marvellous, couldnt be more helpful. Given the pricing of rental accommodation in London I would wholeheartedly recommend this for couples visiting. It is pretty, bright and tastefully decorated. NEver had enough time to take in all that the area offers but we will be back I hope to be just plain tourists next time. Thank you Mary and Kevin, we loved it!

GREAT VALUE AND SERVICE.

  • 5 out of 5
I booked this apartment for a member of my staff who was visiting London. I found the owners very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The booking process was very straightforward and my security deposit was returned promptly and in full. My colleague really enjoyed his stay and requested that we book the same apartment for him when he comes back later this year.

Situated in the heart of vibrant Greenwich, a World Heritage Maritime Site, home of the famous Cutty Sark Historical Sailing Ship, Greenwich Observatory (where time began), and the stunning architecture of Greenwich Maritime Museum and University.

Greenwich is steeped in Royal History being the birthplace of Henry VIII who was baptised in St Alfege's Church, Greenwich.

Queen Elizabeth I was also born here.

A stunning walk into beautiful Greenwich Park brings you up to The Royal Observatory where you can discover the history of Time and stand on the actual Greenwich Meridian time line with one foot in the east and one in the west. The views from here of the River Thames, Canary Wharf and The City of London are quite spectacular.

Walk further through the park to discover historic Blackheath and Blackheath Village with it's many fabulous restaurants.
