About Amanda Robertson

We are the family Robertson's. We first started off with our Holiday let business when we saw our dream house in Devon 4 years ago. We didn't want to move from London, however wanted that weekend escape. To achieve that we brought our dream house and set it up as a luxury holiday let, when its not booked out we use it, unfortunately it has now become so popular that those weekends are getting fewer and fewer!

The success of Devon gave us the idea of trying it out in London.

Our one bedroom flat there had been rented out before on a long let, so in Spring of 2012 when our tenants left we decided to advertise it as a holiday let, we have not looked back!

If you would also like to view our Devon house please go to property 492193.

We hope to be able to welcome you at one or the other!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Amanda for letting us stay in your lovely little flat. It was perfectly situated for our many Christmas shopping trips into town. The flat was very welcoming, warm and cosy, lovely comfy big bed and had everything we needed. The 5 star complimentary slippers and beautifully presented toiletries were a lovely touch.

We will be back!

A lovely flat at a very reasonable rate!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 children, stayed at Manville just after the New Year for the second time. As before the flat was all and even more than we had hoped for, warm, spotlessly clean, quiet and conveniently located for the London attractions. Even The Harry Potter studios out of town were easy to get too, thanks to the overland and tube station at Balham. We will definitely be recommending you to our friend's Amanda, thank you again!

The right choice!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. My husband and I visited London once before and paid a lot of money for a hotel that was extremely cramped. We stayed at Manville over the New Year and were very pleased with our choice after talking with other Americans who stayed in "luxury" hotels. Manville was spacious, beautifully decorated and very convenient to both the Tooting Bec and Balham tube stops. The owner left suggestions for restaurants and bars and we explored them all plus several more in the area. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and the neighbors are friendly.

There were plenty of dishes, clean linens, robes, slippers and the toiletries were top notch. It was a little chilly when we visited and the owner supplied a Dyson heater. It heated the entire flat! That was a pleasant surprise.

You will be pleased with this location, this price and this owner. Amanda returned our deposit within one week. I even left an important item and she shipped it back to me quickly.

We would definitely suggest a visit the Lighthouse Fish and Chips near the Tooting Bec tube station. They are open late and food is great.

Balham seems to be more upscale than Tooting Bec. We walked through both neighborhoods, felt safe, but the shops and restaurants in Balham seemed to be more upper class.

Welcoming haven at the end of a day's sightseeing.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as expected. Well equipped, comfortable and clean. The location met our needs with an easy commute into the city via the Underground. We will certainly recommend the apartment to our friends and definitely stay here again.

Elegant, cosy, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

An elegantly outfitted apartment that provided everything we needed for a 2 week stay. Comfortable bed and couch, great TV, books and magazines, fresh laundry and cleaning after first week, washer, very modern stove, and well outfitted kitchen with fridge. Very quiet.

We appreciated the fluffy slippers that were provided.

Steps from the park and a brief walk to shopping, restaurants and transit and easy access to central London.

The apartment is a basement, which means no views and limited daylight.

The owner is accessible and helpful.

Highly recommended!

Manville Road Flat

  • 4 of 5

We needed a flat in South London for an extended visit with our new grandson. The Manville flat was everything we had hoped for and more. The kitchen was well equipped and Amanda stocked it with some basics before we arrived so we didn't have to run out and get things. It's convenient to the rail and the tube, although the tube is a bit more convenient to get to. The Balham high road has a number of interesting shops and restaurants for dining out. On departure, Amanda gave us a lift to the train.

Positives: Clean and neat, nice neighborhood, towels and bedding changed halfway through the stay, well equipped.

Negatives: Nothing significant. Lots of foxes in the neighborhood. Longish walk to train.

Just what we were looking for

  • 3 of 5

My husband and me were looking for an apartment near London to stay 5 nights with our 5 years old daughter.We hadn´t heard of the area before but we liked the description and photos and decided to go for it. Didn´t get disappointed.The apartment was clean, nicely decorated, cosy and pefect for the three of us. Shops and cafes are very closeby and Balham subway and train station is only 10 minutes walking, and once there, it would take only 15 minutes to get to Waterloo station, right in the center of London.

We thank Amanda for her kindness and we highly recommend it.
