About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This property is professionally managed by Ivy Lettings, specialists in central London vacation rentals since 2009. Here's a video of reviews from some of our clients:

A wonderful London vacation rental, complete with a beautiful balcony which overlooks the Tate Modern, the Shard and the Young Vic Theatre. This modern apartment has light and contemporary décor throughout and is perfect for adult groups and families. It is the ideal home for those searching to stay in the heart of the city.

Living & Eating

Full length windows provide the large living space with excellent natural light, and simple décor compliments the modern ambience of this space. A generous sofa completes the picture of convivial convenience and charm.

A well equipped, modern kitchen allows for the chef of your party to whip up simple suppers, with a dining table to seat four.

With spectacular views over the London skyscape, the apartment is flanked at all sides by a balcony; a luxury in the midst of the teeming metropolis, and a rare suntrap indeed for crisp mornings..

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

With two luxurious bedrooms, this apartment comfortably sleeps up to four guests. The master bedroom has a UK king size (5ft wide) bed, complete with an en-suite bathroom, furnished with a bath, twin basins and WC. The second bedroom, furnished with a bunk bed will accommodate a further two guests. The family bathroom has a walk in shower.

Please Note: From November 30th the second bedroom will have the option to have twin singles or a double bed, meaning this home will be even more suitable for families with children wanting separate beds

On Your Doorstep

You are a 10 minute walk from both Southwark and Borough tube stations, where you will have quick access to Westminster and Green Park, and central and south London using the Jubilee and Northern lines.

Five stars for the flat and four stars for Ivy Lettings

  • 5 of 5

The flat is as described and the photos are accurate. It is clean, comfortable, and bright and has all the amenities that one would need for their stay. The flat is an easy walk to either the Southwark or Borough stations, which was very convenient. The neighborhood is quiet (well, for a big city) and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. We especially loved the Borough market, which was a short walk away. One thing to note is that master bathroom only has a bathtub and no shower. There is only one shower in the flat, which is in the family bathroom.

Ivy Lettings was very professional and responded very quickly to my initial inquiry and follow up questions. I am taking off a star because we choose to use the lock box to get the key to the flat. The code to the lock box in their email to me was wrong. We were lucky because an employee arrived a few minutes after us to put another key in the lock box and opened it for us. I am sure that we could have called the emergency line for Ivy Lettings, but the situation could have been a big disappointment if we would have arrived late at night as we had planned. My recommendation would be to plan your stay to meet an Ivy Lettings representative to get the key during their office hours or double or triple check the lock box code with Ivy Lettings if you will be arriving late at night. Also, the welcome book had the wrong code for the trash room. Our apologies to the cleaning service for the stinky trash that we could not throw away. It would be great if Ivy Lettings could update the welcome book.

If your party only needs one shower, then I would highly recommend this property.

Great flat in London

  • 5 of 5

This was very clean and well-kept, generally exactly as advertised and as the pictures show. They were very easy to work with and our security deposit was refunded quickly. The location was great - close to public transportation or within walking distance if you don't mind walking a bit. We loved this apartment! We had 4 staying here and had plenty of room. It's a big city so it does get loud at night - especially if it's warm when you visit and you keep the windows open (no AC) - so we used earplugs a lot for sleeping. Not unexpected when staying in a big city though! If we are even in London again we would stay here!

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

You can tell how much this owner cares about his apartment, it is immaculate, and very well cared for. We went to Ivy Lettings on recommendation from friends and explained what we wanted. They were efficient and friendly from the start, and we were very happy with their service. We felt lucky to stay in this home, and to have found such a personal service in London. We will definitely be coming back.

Car: not necessary

In this area of London, you can never be too far away from a pub, and Wireworks is no exception. Try The George, just over 10 minutes on foot, for a truly traditional English pub experience.

In terms of location, this is a theatregoer’s dream, with Shakespeare’s Globe, the eponymous Young Vic as well as the Old Vic a pleasant walk from the apartment. The Tate Modern, Imperial War Museum and now the tallest building in Europe, the Shard, are also within striking distance.

Finally, don’t miss one of London’s most renowned food markets - the Ivy Lettings team highly recommends Borough Market, which is only moments away. Open Monday to Saturday, we highly recommend a trip and particularly suggest visiting on an empty stomach.
