Guestbook comments from the owner

'I have just returned from a week in a rented flat in London.

My wife and I were dazzled. We found ourselves going 'home' early, just to loaf in the flat and to roam the neighborhood and to sit at the Marina and have a beer or two.I HIGHLY recommend the place to anyone who wants to spend a very pleasant week in London.'

Dear Terry,

We are back after another wonderful week in London. Your apartment has really been a blessing. It is so comfortable, so well thought out, and so nice to come back to after long days of sightseeing, wandering and celebrating.

The weather was particularly kind to us this year. We saw so much sun, we were wondering what city we were in. And we rode the Tate Modern slides, heard the Messiah at Royal Albert Hall and saw Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic. Shopping was festive and fun because of all the gay decorations.Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year's,

Perfect location for a visit to London

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a pleasure to stay in. Warm, comfortable, clean and lots of space! The location is excellent: it's only a 10 minute walk to the nearest Tube station (Tower Hill) or you can hop the #100 bus right into central London. There are several amenities closeby as well, including several cafes and restaurants, a very nice grocery store and a Starbucks :). We loved walking by the Tower of London each day, it was amazing. I'd recommend this apartment in a heartbeat to anyone that was visiting London!

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear our visitors enjoyed their stay in London with us. We do have a FREE car parking space which are like gold dust in the centre of London and many of our visitors under 55 years old have also enjoyed a holiday in our apartment! We have no facilities at all for children.

Lots of pros : a very nice, comfortable and quiet flat in the heart (or almost !) of London. Well located in a beautiful place, the St-Katarina's Docks. You're few minutes by foot from the river Thames. And the owner is cool !

Just one con : bring your curtain if you don't like the sun early in the bedroom !

Owner's Response: Good to hear that our visitors enjoyed our apartment. There is a venetian blind in the bedroom so no need of a curtain. St.Katherine's dock is a great location that is why many of our visitors return.

A wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

The experience staying at this property has been so good that I have stayed there 4 times! What better endorsement good there be? The apartment is clean, well-appointed and very well maintained. It has all the facilities that are needed for a relaxed stay - I have found everything to be in tiptop condition and not one thing that I needed was not available. The close proximity of a quality supermarket makes self-catering so simple. The owner, Mr Harris, is a great help. He is very flexible on both check in and check out and the complementary provisions and bottle of wine just add to the highly professional and high quality customer service. The apartment is just a short walk away from the Tower of London and the associated sights and attractions of the City I highly recommend this property.

A great location and excellent value

  • 4 of 5

We visit London at least once a year to see family and friends, and this is was our fourth stay in this apartment. What makes us keep coming back is the great location. There are easy transport links to all parts of London, with Tower Hill tube a pleasant 15 minute walk through St Katherine Dock, avoiding busy streets. The location itself is quiet and safe and the flat is bright, warm and cosy and generally well equipped. Terry (the owner) is friendly and helpful and will usually meet you on arrival. Any minor problems we've had have been sorted out quickly. The flat is excellent value for money: we will certainly continue to stay here and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Every year since 2009

  • 5 of 5

We are New Zealanders who come to London for summer every year. We have stayed at this apartment for a total of 23 weeks over 6 trips every year since 2009 and we have booked for 2015 as well. - need I say more.

The location is great with a pleasant 10 minute walk to Tower Hill underground or 10 minutes to the city of London. A bus stop is right outside the complex. Waitrose and other shop are a cross the road. The river is 2 minutes away. The owners are delightful and responsive. Highly recommended.

Comfort and Convenience!

  • 5 of 5

We have so enjoyed this centrally-located apartment that we’ve stayed three times! The comfort and convenience factors cannot be understated. It’s directly opposite a Waitrose supermarket, restaurants in the St Katharine Docks marina, a short walk to Tower Hill Tube Station and the 100 bus takes you into the city where you can alight at Liverpool Street Station, St Paul’s or even cross the Thames as far as Bermondsey.

The apartment is light-filled, airy but cosy, clean and well-equipped, should you wish to eat in and there is a good stock of guide books for further tourist assistance in and around London. An added bonus is the complementary WiFi. Situated in a secure complex, there is also a parking spot available. With attentive owners, location and competitive tariffs, this is an ideal base for a couple and a gem of a find in London.
