About Alexander, Pass the Keys

Andrew (the owner) purchased Bridge Wharf originally as a base for his office in London. After relocating to Devon after his son was born in 2008, it was rented out to tenants. In 2011, as Andrew missed having a base in London, he decided to rent it as a holiday let and it was run by Andrew's wife, Rebecca. For practical reasons, Andrew and Rebecca wanted someone based in London to take over the running of Bridge Wharf and I was appointed in September 2015.

Why Alexander, Pass the Keys chose Camden & Covent Garden

The property is very spacious, offers off street parking and is nearby to Regents canal, which offers walks along the canal to nearby Camden. Islington is only a short ten minute walk away with a fantastic selection of shops, bars, restaurants and a couple of cinemas. In addition, the Kings Cross area has undergone massive redevelopment in the last few years and the local area has many exciting restaurants, shops and bars.

What makes this house unique

Bridge Wharf offers 1189 sq feet of space in a 2 bedroom townhouse in north London with its own parking space. The townhouse is based in a development overlooking Regents Canal and as it is set back from the main road, the house is quite quiet - a big advantage in central London. Kings Cross St Pancras Station is only minutes away - so guests can easily reach all the main sightseeing areas by underground/train. Oxford Street or Covent Garden is only 20 minutes away door to door so guests can enjoy all of the attractions of the West End!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca is a star! From pre-booking questions to aftercare (returning our deposit and even cash that we had left behind) Rebecca dealt with everything swiftly and often went the extra mile ensuring that our stay was extremely comfortable and stress free.

The house itself is exactly as seen in the photos, very spacious, modern and stylish with all home comforts provided as well as luxury linens/towels and appliances. On arrival the house had been spotlessly cleaned and was warm and inviting.

The location is perfect with every amenity close by. Despite its central location the house is in a private courtyard and therefore extremely quiet and peaceful, with free off-street parking, a definite bonus in a central London location.

In all our stay was just perfect, so much so that we are looking to re-book soon. Many Thanks Rebecca for such a wonderful service.

Perfect accommodations for 5 people

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 nights in July 2017 with our three children.

The apartment was exactly as advertised. Very clean, comfortable and quiet at night. The shower was nice with no shortage of hot water and the kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. The owner was attentive to our queries during our stay.

Convenient to bus (1 minute) with 1 minute ride to King's Cross or just ten minute walk to either King's Cross or Angel underground stations. Sometimes we walked and other we took the buses. King's Cross in a major underground hub so it is quick and easy to get everywhere once you figure out the layout of the station.

A good size Tesco (grocery store) is just a 3-4 minute walk.

Lots of interesting restaurants, especially if you walk due East toward Islington along Wynford Road to Chapel Market which is under 500m away.

You can also do a nice 30 minute walk along Regents Canal towards Camden Market if you don't mind the few dodgy sections.

Highly recommended.

Comfortable convenient and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Its really good to be able to park in front of the house.The beds are very comfortable with fresh cotton sheets .The cot and highchair are provided and essential for the baby .Although the arrangement of bedrooms is not entirely the best for our party .We brought a little camp bed for the 4 year old so he could be in his parents room.The selection of toys is much appreciated.

The house is very quiet although so close to main road and Kingscross.The convenience for all transport and closeness to central London is the best feature.

Nice, quiet flat close to central transportation and dining options

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at this flat in November. We were two adults and four kids and we made it work without any trouble. The flat is convenient to the Tube (about a 10 minute walk) and even more convenient to bus stops, which we preferred for the double-decker experience. We also walked along the canal one day to get to Camden Market and really enjoyed the walk. We did have one issue with the refrigerator while we were there but it was resolved quickly without hassle. The only negatives I would say were the downstairs bedrooms could use an update and the floor is a bit creaky in the dining room, which is right over one of the bedrooms, so it woke our kids up one of the days. However, this is minor. We would recommend the apartment without reservation.

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great for our visit to London. Very clean, well-furnished, and we loved the location. 5 to 10 minute walks to Kings Cross station and grocery store. Many small pubs and restaurants even closer. We also enjoyed walking along the canal for a different view of London. As described, the kitchen, dining room, and den/TV room are upstairs so be able to climb stairs.

Good location and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our visit to London and staying at the townhouse. The townhouse was comfortable and clean, it could use an update. We thought we would be able to see the canal not only the parking lot. For air circulation the glass doors need to be open.
