About listing

The Balcony gives a SIDE River Thames view, (see the photograph from the Balcony picture) so you can watch the boats sailing by in the evening after a walk along the stunning famous and Romantic South Bank River Path. The view DIRECTLY in front of the balcony is Europe's tallest building called 'The Shard'. A balcony with a view of the River and Shard is London RARE! The River Path is next to the apartment. This leads to most things you will want to see ... The River is very long so make sure you are staying at the central part of it...ALWAYS check the Google map! As you can see from the photograph, the River path leads all the way to The London Eye. On the River Path: (see my photographs) The Shakespeare's Globe The Tate (free entry) St Paul's Cathedral The Tower Bridge HMS Belfast Museum Boat London Bridge The Oxo Tower The London Aquarium St Paul's Cathedral The London Dungeon Cross over the bridge and you are on Charing Cross Road and into 'The West End' The studio is 441 Square Foot or 41 Square Metres. Immaculate throughout (read our reviews) and modern. We have unlimited Wi Fi Free International Call (Most of Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Japan) Free British Calls Free British Mobile Calls You can also use our Britsh Mobile/Cell Phone (just 'Top Up') at the shops, this means that you can take it out with you and then you will not get crazy International Roaming fees! There are four ways to make coffee if you are a big coffee fan like me! The best in my opinion is the gorgeous Italian De Longhi Expresso/Capuccino Maker then there is a stove De Longi Expresso maker and a caffetiere plus normal instant with the kettle. A full tin of Illy Coffee, fresh milk (or coffee mate creamy powder) sugar and sweetners and croissants will be waiting for you. Kichen Everything you will need, pans and frying pan, Oven, Grill, Microwave, Sieves, Blender, Dishwasher, Can Openers, Bottle Opener, Scissors, Chefs Knives, Cheese Grater plus many extras!

    This was my first time on the south riverside, the flat is part of a modern building almost facing the Thames, the area is a residential one, thus really quite, but only 5' far from the nearest tube station and bus stop. In 1' you can walk on the Thames path and easily reach shops, restaurants and bar. The flat is extremely well-kept, very clean and really well-equipped. This is not the first time I rent a vacation flat, but Karen has been the first one providing coffee, milk and croissants for the first breakfast, and I assure that you will appreciate this a lot after a long travel. Further, there were other little touches left in the flat, like umbrellas, free phone calls, mobile, etc. I would recommend this location to everybody, couples, families or friends, Karen with her flat knows how to welcome you, professionally and warmly, better than any hotel or rental agency. 16 February 2013 - 08:16:43

    Great location for our stay. We really enjoyed our time in London. Thanks for accomodating our family. The boys loved it. 08 July 2014 - 19:06:40

    This was the first trip to London for both me and my friend, not only were we nervous about not knowing anything about what to expect, but also locations for what we wanted to do. This flat was perfectly located within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to do. There was a tube station right around the corner, along with a little Co-Op store that held everything we needed. The flat itself was extremely comfortable that it felt like your own place. I loved everything about it and would definitely stay there again. And hopefully will soon! 05 March 2014 - 03:07:21

    The entire process of renting this studio was effortless. Karen greeted us at the studio when we arrived and made us feel so at home. The unit is very comfortable and clean. Karen supplies many extras to assure a nice stay. So enjoyed walks along the Thames Path both to the east and west. Great views from the unit as well as the balcony. Thank you for sharing your place with us. 25 September 2014 - 14:00:11
  6. This place is a steal - five minute walk to the Underground; 10 minute walk to Tower Bridge. The unit is EXTREMELY clean, well stocked, and user friendly (directions for everything, great espresso machine, refrigerator, washer/dryer, washing machine, stove, microwave, phone with local calls, WIFI, cable TV.) The owner is so communicative, easy to work with, and responsive. An absolute pleasure to work with and great deal - especially given the high cost of living in London! 03 December 2014 - 19:11:43

    We had a very good holiday in London. Very nice weather, good shopping, great food and nice to come home and relax in your appartement, where we didnt miss a thing. We loved it. It was great with the balcony. The whole place was clean and functional. It was lovely with the quiet neighborhood. 29 July 2015 - 19:44:59

    Loved everything about the apartment - comfortable beds, well catered kitchen (cooked a nice meal first night there), good bathroom with loads of towels for everyone,, balcony that lights up in the night, views of the Thames from the balcony. Location is perfect - very close to Tower Bridge. Had a fantastic few days in London, caught the clipper boat to Greenwich which is fab place. Did alot of walks along the river, visited Southbank where the wonderful Globe and National Theatre can be found as well as the BFI. Went to Southwark theatre and saw a great play - edgy, comical and tragedy all rolled into one. People very friendly - husband even tried some jellied eels - he says that he liked it! If you are coming to London, then you should rent this wonderful apartment, the owner is so friendly and helpful, making your stay in London, even more special - thanks Karen, it was lovely meeting you - we will be coming again - soon, I hope! :) 30 July 2015 - 20:37:22

    Because we have visited London at least twice a year for several years, we have stayed in many rental flats. When we discovered Karen's studio, we found the place we would return to each visit thereafter. If cleanliness and comfort are important to you, this is the place. It is spotless and the wall bed is perfect for my back. It is quite a nice large layout for a studio and my husband and I never feel like we are cramped for space. On nice days, the balcony is a perfect place for a glass of wine and a book. The views of The Thames and The Shard are nice but at night, the view of The Shard is the best. Karen has thought of everything one can need to have an enjoyable stay and has clear, visible directions for using all of the appliances. The kitchen is well-supplied and the bathroom is large with ample storage space for personal items. Karen is a very thoughtful owner. After a long and tiring flight, it is nice to arrive to find tea in the canister, milk in the fridge and a croissant or pastry to revive ourselves. She leaves plenty of cleaning supplies and other essentials and there is even a mobile phone available to use while visiting. Working with someone who is so considerate makes our visits more pleasurable. We highly recommend Karen's property. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood and the Bermondsey and London Bridge stations are within walking distance and can take you to any place in London. 26 March 2015 - 02:45:05

    Well appointed studio, chic, clean, and with everything you will need and some more. The owner (Karen) is responsive and very helpful. Her customer service is excellent. The studio is conveniently located to move around the city, major London attractions (Tower Bridge, Tower of London, London Eye) and with just a six minutes walk to the closest Underground station. The bed (Murphy bed) was comfortable with impeccable linen. I never open the sofa-bed so I cannot comment on that. The space seems adequate for the enjoyment of a couple, and even a couple with a child, although no privacy since it is a studio. This was my first time in London, so this stay was like any first impression....I would definitely go back and stay exactly here! 23 July 2015 - 21:17:27

    Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids, age 4 and 10) stayed here for one week. The apartment was a great option...well-equipped with everything we needed, and well-situated. We loved walking in the neighborhood, whether along the Thames, or to the nearby grocery store or underground station. The main bed was quite comfortable. The pull-out sofa bed was ok, but really only one person could sleep on it comfortably. If you have small kids, one could sleep on the other sofa without any problem. The owner provides wonderfully detailed instructions for getting to the apartment, and everything else you might need to know. If you will be there in the heat of the summer, be aware that it gets quite warm during the day, and there is no air-conditioning. Temperatures were abnormally warm while we were there; I'm sure it is normally comfortable. There is a fan to use to help circulate the air. Everything in the home was clean, and well-maintained. There were some toys for the kids to play with, and lots of guide books, maps, and pamphlets. Whenever we had questions the owner was always quick to get back to us. I would highly recommend this apartment for a solo traveler, couple, or family with one or two children. 14 September 2013 - 09:53:08

    It was a very nice apartment, clean, well equipped. It's very close to the subway and the supermarket. 24 August 2015 - 17:05:32

    A fab studio, in a great location and everything made easy by the owner, Karen. The studio is only 5 minutes walk from Bermondsey Tube and is located right next to the Thames Path. The studio is bright, clean and very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved being so close to the Thames Path and Borough Market, which is well worth a visit as is Monmouth Coffee (don't be put off by the queues, the coffee is worth it). We will certainly be recommending the studio to friends. 16 July 2014 - 16:26:38

    This flat is super convenient for couples or families spending time in London. Close to river, Tube and other transport, as well as a grocery for stocking up. Though this is a studio, our family of four (2 adults, 2 teens) was able to find enough space to spread out. The photos on the website are a good reflection of what you will see when you arrive. The decor is London-themed and fun without being kitchy or cluttered. The unit is also super clean! Coffee station is a life-saver in the morning! We found this flat to be well-stocked with what we needed. Karen and her team were very responsive, and Karen checked in with us during our stay a few times to make sure that all was well. 05 December 2016 - 15:01:21

    We really enjoyed exploring the South Bank from Karen's spacious studio apartment. She thoughtfully provided provisions for breakfast the next morning. And there was coffee, tea, sugar, paper towels and more. All of the essentials were on hand, including laundry soap for the very nice washer-dryer. But the location near the River Thames and the Tower of London Bridge were sights that we never tired of seeing. Thanks so much, Karen, for providing such an inviting apartment. 26 September 2017 - 13:59:00

    The property was very nicely appointed and the location was perfect. The kitchen was just the right size and allowed us to avoid eating out for every meal. The balcony and accompanying view are great. The neighborhood was quiet and the easy access to the tube was a huge plus. Just what we were looking for on this trip. 29 July 2017 - 17:33:00

    When we arrived to the appartment the housekeeper welcomed us and explained us all the necesary information concerning the appartment, the supermarket and so on. Since the first day we felt very confortable. The location is pefect. We enjoied very much the walks along the river side upto the London Eye. The night view of the London Bridge is absolutely marvelous. The metro is not far away so it is very easy to reach any part of London. And after a long day, the appartment offer a nice place to rest. The owner offers coffe, tea, toileteries, towels, linen, bed sheets, dishwasher and washing machine (with the cleaning products necesary). Not to mention all the maps and guiding books you can use during your stay. As a summary, a perfect place for the three of us. Definetely we recomend it. 11 August 2016 - 15:27:03
