About the property

Fantastic Central Location Close To London's Southbank Area


Our apartment is a small but perfectly formed new 1 bed apartment in great Zone 1 location with easy access to multiple transport links. For us the location is perfect! Webber Street is only 5 mins walk from Waterloo and Southwark Stations and also close to Blackfriars for direct trains to both Gatwick and Luton Airports. Moments away are direct buses to Kings Cross St Pancras for Eurostar.

Our apartment is only available at certain periods of the year, Christmas, Easter and some of the summer etc. Sorry we do not offer a nightly rate and 5 nights would be the minimum stay.

If you are interested in reserving a stay please get in touch and tell us a little more about your visit and required dates. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Please note we will require a tenancy application to be completed and a rental agreement to be signed. Sorry no smoking or pets are allowed at the property.


The flat itself is a newly built one bed with modern facilities and parquet flooring throughout. The apartment would be most suited to couples or individuals, a maximum of 2 people. Please note the property is on the first floor, there is a small flight of stairs leading to the entrance (about 12 steps), there is no lift.

Please note the location is central London but it's still quiet at nights and weekends. The flat itself is located above an admin office but they do not start work early or create any noise.

There is no allocated parking in the area. We do not recommend driving as parking and congestion charges are expensive but there are numerous options for public transport closely.


includes oven/grill/hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, TV/radio, bluetooth speaker, unlimited broadband WI-FI, sofa, dining table with 2 chairs. (sorry - no microwave or coffee percolator)


Double bed, plenty of storage in drawers, small hanging space


bath/shower, heated towel rail, extractor fan etc


Here you will find some additional hanging space and things like the ironing board, iron, hoover etc should you require them!

We will usually be available at check in to make sure you know how everything works, to hand over keys etc. We would not be present during your stay but around for any questions by phone/email.



(EMILIE - stayed in October 2014)

Julie and Darren are a wonderful hosts! Everything was really well organised, Julie gave us the directions for our arrival and many recommendations about the area and our visit in London. The apartment is more than expected, we really feel like home. It is well located only 10-15 minutes walks from every major attractions. The area is calm and safe, which is perfect after a day in the busy London. Thank you for your apartment Julie, it was perfect! Emilie & Mathieu

JOSE - stayed in September 2014

'This apartment was fantastic. Super clean, great amenities, great location and the hosts (Julie and Darren) were just awesome. They were super attentive, provided great suggestions for restaurants around town, they even provided some albums of great bands they work with, and all the information I could need was on a neatly organized booklet they left in the apartment. Can't say enough great things about this place, would definitely stay here again on my next visit.'

EMMA - stayed in August 2014

Another wonderful stay.! Having convenience stores, restaurants, and transport so close makes this already wonderful apartment all the better

EMMA - stayed in July 2014

The perfect base to explore London!

Loved the apartment. Fresh, clean, great kitchen and bathroom. The area is really safe - day and night. We would walk home late at night with our baby and never had or saw any problems. It's such a short walk to Waterloo, Waterloo East, or Southwark stations for Tube, Bus, or National Rail connections. Or if you prefer walking (as we do) you can be in SoHo / Covent Garden in 25 mins. Close to walk to the river which is lovely, and plenty of food options. There are several mini-supermarkets nearby to buy things to cook and make full use of the kitchen.Corresponding with Julie was a breeze. She responded really quickly to the request and every email following. Took the time to meet us at the apartment and walk us through living there. She even includes a 'What To Do' folder for London, and has some really interesting books to help make the most of your time in London.Staying there a 2nd time at the end of August we liked it so much.


(** please note the below are from our previous property in a different area but may help to confirm you would be booking a clean and comfortable apartment!**)


'Thank you for our recent extended stay in your Highgate apartment. Over the 6 weeks, the apartment became a real home away from home. The apartment was in great condition and had everything that we needed to be comfortable and was ideally located for us with easy access to Crouch End, Highgate Village and Hampstead Heath. The transport was also excellent with easy access to the West End and other sights. We highly recommend your apartment for anybody looking to spend time in London'


'We stayed for two weeks in June. The flat was exactly as described, bright, airy, clean and well-equipped. Darren and Julie couldn't have been more helpful. The situation is perfect for a visitor to London ; we hired a car and it took us about 15 minutes to get to Selfridges! We would certainly look forward to staying again when we next visit London'


''Hello Julie!I just wanted to say me and my parents really enjoyed our stay in the flat. Coming from a small town in Italy they really enjoyed the fact that the house was located in a quiet and peaceful area were they could rest after a busy tourist day in London or have a walk in Highgate when they didn't feel like adventuring in the city center! The flat was very clean and had everything we could possibly need. Thank you again!'


''We stayed in the flat for a week (end of December 2008). We found it very clean, warm and comfortable. It had all the essentials for self-catering, washing, etc.and was very quiet. Good value (compared to hotels) and good location, with easy access to shops and to transport to central London and elsewhere. We would definitely consider staying again'


''Beautiful sunny flat, great location, we'll be visiting again'


Highly recommended to all 5/5 Me and my family totally enjoyed our stay at this place. Facilities, layout and environment were as described in description. It is in a great location and underground stations were close. Apartment was clean and well-maintained, and owners were friendly and helpful.


I stayed at Elmcroft for two weeks with my fiancee for a much needed holiday in london. We really enjoyed our time at Elmcroft and were very happy there. The owners made a very helpful book about the surrounding area and what it has to offer which is at the flat this was great to have and refer too. The descriptions of the flat was all accurate and thanks to the book we found stuff to do and restaurants and bars we may not of otherwise stumbled across. The bed was very comfortable and everything was great. I would definitely stay again, in fact we would love too! The owners were very helpful and approachable.

Lovely, cosy apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week in Julie and Darrin Robson's apartment in Southwark. I was given a warm welcome by Julie and Darrin when I arrived. Julie showed me around the apartment which was very helpful. The apartment is exactly as described in the listing. It is well furnished and very comfortable and cosy. The location is excellent; a short walk from Southwark tube station and easy walking distance to Waterloo in one direction and Borough/London Bridge in the other. The South Bank with all its attractions is about a 20 minute walk. I've stayed in numerous rented accommodations in different parts of London and I think Julie and Darrin's apartment is by far the best one. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation and would love to come back for a return visit.

Well equipped flat in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Darren were lovely hosts. They met us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed for our week in London. The flat is cute, well appointed and very well located! With two tube stations nearby and an easy walk to so many of London's sites, it made the week easy to navigate. We highly recommend it.

Lovely, peaceful and very cosy

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in this lovely flat, and I look forward to many more stays here.

It's so cosy and peaceful yet so conveniently situated, to the Waterloo and Southwark stations, to the many Southbank theatres, and has lots of supermarkets, cafes, restaurants very close by.

It's immaculately kept, and everything is extremely comfortable.

And perhaps most importantly, the owners are just really great people.

I do highly recommend it.

Brilliant apartment, with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Darren are incredibly helpful and have a wonderful flat.

The location, size and furnishing of the flat are absolutely brilliant - whether for a quick trick to the city, or for a long stay it works wonderfully.

Worth every penny, we will definitely be back!

A clean well equipped unit with many amenities including wifi.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. The owners, Julie and Darrin are a friendly and helpful couple. Their flat is a clean well equipped unit with a tv, stove, washing machine and dish washer. Wifi is available.

It is in a quiet neighborhood with grocery stores and local eateries just around the corner.

A five minute walk takes you to Southwark Tube station which will link you to anywhere in this vast city. If you prefer, continue on down to Bankside where you will find the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe. An alternate walk down Waterloo Road will take you to the National Theatre, British Film Institute and the South Bank Arts Centre.

P.S. If you are a book lover as we are, there are a number of booksellers’ stalls in front of the BFI.
