About the property

Fantastic Central Location Close To London's Southbank Area

Hello.

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. Please note we cannot accommodate very early or late check-ins. From 2pm-8pm is our usual, please ask for anything outside of these hours. Providing there is no evidence of damage the deposit will be refunded within 24 hours of check out.

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 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.

(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.

Truly feels like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is I think my fourth time staying in this cosy flat, which in itself should be enough to tell you how great this place is, and how lovely the owners are.

Ideally located, well kept and well equipped unit.

This unit is very well situated for easy access to all of London's "big" sights. Julie & Darrin are great hosts and check in went exactly as planned. Lovely unit which we will recommend to friends and will also book again.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Julie and Darrin's apartment in Southwark for a week and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and location. The apartment was the perfect size for the two of us and was very clean and comfortable. It provided all the comforts of home and was furnished and decorated in a simple and contemporary way.

The location was fantastic. We hadn't ever stayed in London before so were looking for something that would provide easy access to historic sites, museums, restaurants, grocery stores, public transportation, etc. The apartment truly exceeded our expectations in this regard. We found we were able to walk to many nearby sites including theaters and museums and also were just minutes from a major train station, subway station, and bus stops.

Julie was at the apartment to greet us when we arrived and was kind and welcoming. She gave us a tour and explained the basics of the apartment. She was an excellent communicator during the booking process and offered her advice/assistance on nearby sites and public transport. When we discovered there wasn't a coffee maker in the apartment (prior to arrival), she even went out of the way to purchase a French Press. We would absolutely stay in Julie and Darrin's apartment again and will recommend it to friends and family.
