About Terry Davies & Ian Jeffrey

We have lived in the London area for many years and know Vauxhall extremely well. I am a musician and Ian is a PhD research biochemist who more recently is working towards a new career as a child psychotherapist. The attractions of this apartment for us included the peaceful location and easy access to the excitement of the West End and the cultural centres.

Terry Davies & Ian Jeffrey purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Terry Davies & Ian Jeffrey chose Waterloo & Lambeth

This flat was our home for 21 years until we began offering it for holiday rentals in 2010. We were very happy here and we want the same for our guests. Having travelled widely, we know what we look for in a holiday home and these are the things we aim to offer in our 2 flats.

What makes this apartment unique

It has been wonderful to see the area around the flat develop into the lively residential centre it is today. We love the peace of the place. In the hallway you might meet Philippa, our lovely neighbour upstairs, but you are unlikely to hear her. If the weather is good, the garden terrace is a little oasis in the city, facing the sun and protected by high plants.

Stunning, extraordinary, truly like home!

  • 5 out of 5
I have traveled my entire career throughout the world, stayed at fabulous hotels, rented a variety of apartments and this is my absolute favorite! From the moment I walked in the door, I felt at home. The fireplace was a nice touch on a couple cool, rainy nights during my stay. Nestled in the nice sitting chair, I stayed home one evening paging through several of the interesting selection of books on hand—including some especially fascinating books highlighting London and even Vauxhall’s story. You will find a comfortable bed with great linens, a tub for a nice soak, and then one great kitchen. The flat is well-appointed and the photos truly depict the place. The neighborhood is quiet, only a short walk from restaurants, a full-service grocery, and London transport just minutes away whether you want to travel by bus or by tube. I moved around the city easily and, while I was there for holidays, I intend to stay when I return for business later this year. I was at the theatre in no time. Make sure to sample one of the Portuguese restaurants nearby. Landlords were wonderful. What a fantastic find! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment! Spring is near and next time I look forward to enjoying the garden. So, make your booking. Just make sure it is not a week I want to return.

PERFECT for our needs!

  • 5 out of 5
Property is exactly as described and shown in pictures. All the very positive reviews we read about it were accurate. Owner, Terry met with us upon our arrival. He was gracious and very helpful in acclimating us to the area and making suggestions as to our interests and needs. He suggested several local restaurants and markets which we patronized during our stay. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We were blessed with warm sunny days and enjoyed morning coffee and afternoon tea in the very private garden off the kitchen. We cooked most of our meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed its warm open airy feeling. Property's close proximity to underground and bus stations made our sight-seeing very easy, enjoyable and inexpensive. I highly recommend this property, I would not hesitate to rent it again or recommend it to my friends.

Loved this place

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was perfect for us. We were met by Peter who gave us a good run-down of the apartment and the facilities, such as shops and bars, nearby tube stations and good bus routes. We made use of them all. We chose this apartment ahead of a hotel because we could spread out, cook and do our laundry. The little outdoor area was ideal for a sit and a drink at the end of the day. The hob nobs were a nice touch. The area was quiet, but close to trains, tubes, buses and the south bank. Couldn't have asked for more.

Wonderful flat in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I rented this flat for six days during a trip to London in mid-May.

This flat is an excellent bargain for anyone visiting London. It is a short walk to bus stops, the underground and Vauxhall Bridge. In good weather it would be a fairly easy walk across the bridge to the Tate Britain and, indeed, to Parliament Square. The owners are Terry and Ian, and we communicated with Terry in arranging the rental. He was helpful in answering questions about travel from Heathrow and recommended a local taxi service that we had pick us up and drive us in—a good option if you’re traveling with luggage and for two people only slightly more expensive than taking the train.

Since neither owner was available the day we arrived, Terry told us that Peter would meet us at the flat. Peter was both interesting to talk with and extremely helpful in describing the area, recommending sites within walking distance, explaining the public transportation set-up, and identifying local stores and restaurants, e.g., a Sainsbury’s supermarket one street over. Peter also came to the flat when we left, so although we did not meet Terry or Ian in person, we felt warmly welcomed and very well cared for.

The flat is on the ground floor, and includes a living room, bedroom, kitchen/dining room, and a small, enclosed garden in the rear. It is spotlessly clean and very bright, all of the furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is reasonably well stocked for cooking and eating, and the nearby Sainsbury’s makes it easy to make your own meals if you wish. Although close to South Lambeth Road the flat is extremely quiet and we never heard any street noise except for occasional people walking by. In addition, since our stay in London was the first part of a two-week visit to England, the washing machine meant we only needed to bring clothes for one week rather than two. (I should note that there isn’t a dryer, so you do have to allow time for your clothes to dry on the rack.)

I would strongly recommend this flat for anyone visiting London. The location is excellent, the flat is quite cozy and comfortable, and Terry and Peter were very helpful. We would definitely want to stay here again.

Loved staying here

  • 5 out of 5
We were greeted by Peter who gave us a good run-down on the property and shops, bars and public transport. The hobnobs were a nice touch. We favoured this accommodation over a hotel because there is room to spread out, cook and do laundry and the little outdoor area was splendid at the end of the day. The location was excellent, close to Vauxhall and Stockwell stations and close to major bus routes. We'd certainly stay again.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful property for two weeks and couldn't have felt more at home! The accommodation is just as it is pictured - no surprises! Just lovely. The added bonus for us was the proximity to so many of London's most popular attractions. If you wanted to walk - it was a short one, but if feeling a little lazy, excellent transportation was at the end of the street! A ten minute walk got us right to Vauxhall Station - from which we could get almost anywhere! We even took day trips to Windsor Castle and Wimbledon - directly from Vauxhall. If we are ever fortunate enough to return, I can't imagine staying anywhere else!

Only 5 minutes walk away is Vauxhall's excellent transport hub (Zone 1) with many trains, tubes and buses to all parts of the city. And 100m away from the apartment are two regular 24 hour bus routes to the West End.

Many popular attractions are within a half hour's walk, some along the River Thames which passes nearby. Among them are the West End, Westminster (the Abbey, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament), Buckingham Palace (if the flag's flying the Queen's at home), London Eye (the UK's most popular tourist attraction), the incomparable South Bank (concert halls, theatres, galleries and cinemas) and the Imperial War Museum. Tate Britain gallery, Lambeth Palace, New Covent Garden Market and Oval Cricket Ground are all within 20 minutes walk. Wimbledon is 3 stops away.

The fast and frequent Gatwick Express from Gatwick Airport travels directly to Victoria Station, a 10 minute taxi ride away.
