Hello and welcome to London. I have poured heart and soul into decorating my home in past two years, and the result is exuberant comfort with elegant style. I hope that my enthusiasm comes across in the aura of the space.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom flat sits on the 2nd floor in a newly-built modern development. Residents in the building primarily work in the financial sector in Canary Wharf or the City. You can expect to see professionals in suits coming in and out ☺

No effort or expense has been spared in creating this beautiful home:

- Spacious (960 sq ft in total) and well-apportioned for each room

- Incredibly well-lit in all bedrooms and especially the open-plan living room with panoramic views (east/south/west facing windows)

- Exquisite furniture/furnishings and new home appliances

- 3 double-bedrooms (one also has a perfect office setting): two with double beds; and the third one having the flexibility to provide a single bed, double bed, or twin beds, and/or to be used as an office

- Quality pocket spring mattresses, Sheridan pillows and luxurious 500 thread count pure cotton bedding for all beds, beating hotels for comfort (now it’s your turn to benefit from my self-indulgence)

- 2 Muji single foldaway guest mattresses are available which can be used in the living room for extra guests

- Sleek bone China tableware, Italian design/made cutlery set and professional copper base sauce and frying pans. Everything you need to make a gourmet meal and a pleasant dining experience

- Logitech Speaker Z906 (the ultimate surround sound system) to power your listening experience (video game, music or movie) to a sensational one


- Free parking (on quiet street)

- Internet WIFI

- 48inch Samsung curved smart TV

- Hotel quality bedding and fluffy cotton towels (1 set of towels per guest per stay. More can be requested in advance with charge GBP3 per set)

- Household detergents and cleaning towels

- 3 hairdryers (1 in each room)

- Extra professional cleaning during stay (on request with charge. GBP30 for flat cleaning and GBP90 for cleaning+change of linen)

- Surround sound system Logitech Z906

Guest Access

The entire flat will be at your disposal.

You will have access to the private communal garden.

Interaction with Guests

My super warm and friendly friend Georgina lives 100meters away and will greet you upon arrival and show you around the flat. If you have any problem or questions, feel free to stop in at Georgina's Victory Fish Bar shop to speak to her, alternatively I am reachable on mobile.

The Neighborhood

Local amenities:

- Southwark Park on your doorstep (200 meters way)

- Surrey Quays Shopping Center is by the Surrey Quays station and a max 10 min walk from home. It has many high-street brands and coffee shops

- Tesco Extra (a large supermarket) is inside the shopping center

- Behind the shopping center is Odeon Cinema (Surrey Quays) and Hollywood Bowl

- As for restaurants, I am quite a foodie so will only list places I personally like:

Near Surrey Quays station: “Café East”, a wonderfully delicious and cheap Vietnamese restaurant serving home-made pho and rice dishes, just opposite the far end of Hollywood Bowl. So far their phos are the best I’ve had in London

Near Wapping Station (Overground line): just 15min from home, you have a few quality restaurants to choose from: “Il Bordello”, “Smiths Brasserie Wapping”, etc.

Getting Around

This flat is very central and conveniently located:

- Surrey Quays Overground Station: 0.4 miles / 8 min walk

- Canada Water Station: 0.8 miles / 15 min walk

- Bus number 1: 200 meters from the building (stopping at Waterloo, Aldwych/Somerset House, Holborn, and final destination Tottenham Court Road. 35min to destination)

- Drive/taxi: Tower Bridge 1.9miles; London Bridge 2.2miles; Tate Modern 3miles; Bank 3miles; SouthBank 3.8miles; Covent Garden/Soho 4.4miles; Buckingham Palace 4.5mile

From home, you can reach major London attractions with ease and minimum time (door to door, incl walking time, via Underground):

- Canary Wharf station: 15 min

- London Bridge station (Borough Market): 19min

- Westminster station (Parliament/Big Ben): 24min

- Green Park station (Buckingham Palace): 26min

- Bond Street station (Oxford Circus): 28min

- Trendy areas incl Wapping, Shoreditch, Hoxton are all on the Overground line, so you can get there w/o change within 20min

- Kings Cross&St Pancras: 37min

- Paddington: 37min

There is plenty of off-street free parking around the building. If needed, I can give you my own private parking space (however it's quite narrow hence not fit for large cars)

About Owner/ Manager

My father was a graphic and later on interior designer for three decades. Growing up in his studio and our family house, it’s hard not to be immersed in his profession and passion, not to mention working on his sites as a helpful teenage labor!

When it came to my own place in London, this latent design ability got awakened. Probably I was taking a leaf out of dad’s book only too naturally.

I’ve played a few parts in life so far: spent my 20s in “high finance”, have been studying classical music devoutly, have met many lovely groups in my property, and most recently started to practice healing. I felt it’s an amazing thing to help with people’s health with energy healing.

I hope you like my expression of beauty & peace in the form of an internal space, and enjoy your stay.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and her co-host Farnaz are super helpful and responsive. Everything is as expected in the description. We were welcomed and given a detailed tour around the flat upon arrival. The place is very spacious and spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped for daily living which feels like we are just at our own home. The neighborhood is quiet and very easy to reach the central London attractions via Tube or road. We had a very comfortable stay. Thanks for all Michelle and Farnaz, and we look forward to returning to your beautiful flat.
