About Jennifer

I was born in Auckland New Zealand, educated at Auckland University. married a Londoner, settled for 30 years in the Manning Valley NSW Australia, taught senior English at Taree College of TAFE. Came to London 2004, currently living in and enjoying London, worked past 4 years in the House of Lords Westminster.

Jennifer purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Jennifer chose Waterloo & Lambeth

I inherited the property from my mother, bless her....and I love it because she lived here 28 years...it is south facing and sunny...you can lie in bed and not see a building when you look out the window

What makes this apartment unique

good bus services to major attractions nearby, walking distance to Houses of Parliament, London Eye and Tate Britain.

this apartment is overlooks a park, it is quiet and well located for Westminster and West End theatres and galleries

PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
My mother and I stayed three weeks in this apartment in order to visit my daughter. The location was great for all that we wanted to see and do either on foot, bus or tube. We felt safe to walk back to the apartment at night. It was spacious and very comfortable. Jennifer was great to deal with. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of clean towels and linen. Hot water was plentiful with good pressure. The kitchen was well equipped to cook light meals. We appreciated the little balcony with clothes line to hang out some washing. We hardly needed to use the heating as it didn't seem to get cold in the apartment. The only thing that I think could possible improve this apartment would be a clothes dryer, but this would not be a deal breaker for me and I would rent again. Thank you Jennifer for a great stay in London.

Owner's Response: thank you Serena, you are very sweet to write a wonderful review without being asked! I am very happy you and your mother have enjoyed your stay in my apartment. I note your suggestion of a drier…and am thinking already: where could it go?…I will mention in my Information for Guests that the boiler cupboard in the hall way has a few lines strung up and acts as an airing cupboard because whn the boiler goes on, it warms the cupboard nicely. It was a pleasure to communicate with you, and thank you for the recommendation to the other members of your family,

all the best

Great apartment with a wonderful owner

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice, well appointed, homelike apartment on a quiet street with a beautiful park behind the building. It is extremely well located close to transit and shops. Jennifer, the owner is a delightful person who emailed us some very useful information before our travel date and also has a well organized binder in the apartment with all kinds of information in it. We highly recommend this rental to anyone!
Thanks Jennifer!

Comfortable apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Our trip to London was great, and made better by the apartment. It was an extremely convenient location, clean and comfortable. The owner has thought of everything to ensure a great stay. We loved the aspect ... so close to everything yet waking up next to a park in the sun. Beautiful! We will definitely look you up next time we are in London.

Great experience

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a great time in this house. Its location is very good, close to the river and the city centre. Near the house there is the option to get many different bus lines. The living room and bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable (except the sofa bed), and the kitchen is full-equiped. Another good point is to have a green area in front of the building and a lot of natural light. The unique negative point is the old-fashioned furniture. With no doubt, I'll go back, it is a very good value for money!

Owner's Response: Hi Melinda

very pleased you had a good time in chez guinevere, sorry you found the sofa bed not comfy enough, the apartment is for 4 people and there are beds for 4 people so the sofa is not really intended for sleeping :o) I am glad it did not spoil your holiday

with kindest regards

Really great apartment for a family of 4. If you are a tourist as we were then Jennifer’s place is a short walk to the nearest underground subway & all of London. The kitchen was fully equipped and the linen closet was full of fresh sheets & towels. Wifi & good a television selection was also included.

Thanks Jennifer from us in Canada.

Great location

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and 3 friends stayed just the one night but found the flat perfect for our needs. Well looked after with everything you could need. In a great location close to all the sights and a short 10 min walk to the nearest tube. Jennifer was very helpful and quick to reply to any queries. Thanks

It's possible to book shorter stays if there is a vacant period that suits you, between other bookings.The apartment is close to the tourist centre of London. A 10 min. walk to Tate Britain. The # 3 bus from the corner is 5 minutes to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and White Hall, (stroll from here through St James' Park to Buckingham Palace); 5 -10 minutes on to Trafalgar Square, the Strand, China town, Covent Garden Market, the West End, and the Haymarket; Shaftesbury Avenue's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square, Soho's night life, Picadilly, Regent St, and the miles of Oxford St shops.

In another direction take the 360 bus to the King's Road Chelsea, Sloane Square and the High Fashion of Sloane St; the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, Harrods, Royal Albert Hall, Lady Diana's Kensington Palace and within walking distance to South Kensington High St and Notting Hill, where Charity shops are a treasure trove of designer labels.

Bus 507 + C10 on the embankment take 10 minutes to Victoria Station, (the Gatwick Express) more theatres + shops.

Other Activities: Theatre, film, parks, museums

Notes:
There is a lift to the 2nd floor where the apartment is located. We ask smokers to respect the fact that they are welcome to smoke on the balcony, but please not in the apartment as the smell of nicotine is not pleasant for non-smoking clients who may come after you. There is no wheelchair access into the shower as the shower is over the bath. We love animals but there is no garden and the apartment is on the second floor. please note that there is a £20 administration fee to alter a booking that reduces the length of stay. If you increase the length of stay there is no administration fee. If the length of stay is reduced up to 3 months or more in advance of arrival, and a vacancy results that is less than 5 days, 50% of the cancelled dates is refundable. If the cancellation of part of the booking occurs within 3 months of arrival date which creates a vacancy of less than 5 days, the caneclled dates are non-refundable, because most bookings are made 6 months in advance
