About listing

Probably the best located, stunning flat with the best reviews on VRBO! You can - rent unit as a 1 bed/1 bath (complete with fold down bed in the living room), stunning kitchen , living room & amazing private deck , perfect for 2 or 3 people, ...with its own private entrance - Great for guests wanting an amazing property in a prime location at an great price ... All with free wi-fi, & guests met on arrival and tour where requested. A fantastic location in the quiet beating heart of the South Bank yet is only a short stroll from the excitement of Covent Garden, the West End & the Olympic sites. South Bank attractions include the beautifully remodelled Royal Festival Hall, The National Theatre & the iconic Oxo Tower (all moments away). The penthouse restaurant at the Oxo Tower offers one of the best views of London. Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (to see or not to see it, that is the question!), the Tate Gallery of Modern Art (Miro a must!) and the staggering London Eye (dwarfing Big Ben!) are all less than a 10 minute walk from the property. These world class attractions are knitted together by the inspiring river walkway (pedestrianized) which threads the length of the South Bank to London Bridge, the Tower of London & beyond. All the major tourist attractions are a mere caber toss (a Scottish pastime!) from the apartment, which means that you can save on expensive travel cards during your stay. Whilst you can genuinely walk to all the major sites on foot, public transport is right outside. A red bus picks up right outside the apartment stopping at attractions between Covent Garden & London Bridge, as do passing black taxis. Waterloo station (main Train line & Tube line) is only 5 minutes walk away. Paris is possible as an exciting daytrip on Eurostar in 2 hrs! The property has undergone an amazing upgrade in December 2017 and limited to 3 persons to maximise enjoyment of the unit. Broadwall is arranged on one level. It comprises of 1 large bedroom and 1 bathroom, ( en suite) with shower and bath. Bathroom and shower room furniture is complimented with chrome taps and shower fittings, towel rail, wall-to-wall mirrors and siena tiled floors. There is a fold down bed in living room area complemented by wooden floors. Hallways and living/dining & bedrooms feature beautiful cherry wood flooring with sensor lighting as a feature. The newly installed kitchen ( December 2017) has quality designer units featuring curved breakfast bar. Integrated top quality bosch appliances include washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, integrated microwave and oven & ... a wine fridge! One of the great benefits of this property is that despite its fabulous central location it enjoys a marvellous secure & peaceful outside deck, leading onto a fantastic urban garden. THIS MAKES THE PROPERTY ALMOST UNIQUE! A timber decked roof garden with plants, seating and lighting proves very popular & a huge luxury in such a central location. Security video entry phone has been fitted to the apartment. Remote controlled access to car park. The apartment has allocated covered parking space within the ground floor car park which may be available upon request. We are proud of our 'Reviews' - don't forget to check them out! NB - I used to rent upstairs also but for comfort have decided to let as a fabulous 1 bed with en-suite, new kitchen and living room with private deck. Keywords: Flat

  1. This place is a gem, a gem, a gem! I simply couldn't believe all the rave reviews this apartment got. Well, staying there is believing. The apartment is lovely and clean, and the location simply can't be beat. It is walking distance to many of the major sites, with easy access to the others. The South Bank area has its own character, and almost a Greenwich Village-feel. The owner could not have gone more out of his way -- welcoming, attending to every detail, and doing everything he could to ensure a pleasant stay. We felt that he would let no stone go unturned in making sure that we knew how to navigate London, and how to be comforatable in this apartment. Following a full orientation in the apartment itself, Barry took us to the river, and gave us both a Famous London Sites orientation, and a local must-do sites orientation! On future trips in London, there is no doubt that this will be home-base for us. My daughter and I chose this site after days and nights of exhaustive research on VRBO. This was undoubtedly the right choice -- and we wholeheartedly recommend it to singles, couples or families who are visiting. You will not find a better deal, nicer owner, or better location. 12 February 2012 - 13:14:20

    My husband and I stayed for a week and we could not have been more thrilled about the location and set up of the property! It was absolutely perfect! Barry walked us around and showed us all the "foodie" spots as well as historical spots that definitely satisfied my difficult palate and craving for history. The pictures are wonderful, but do not do it justice - it is just stunning here. We will most definitely be returning - 6 month limit on U.S. passports and this is exactly where I want to stay when I live in London for that time! 20 May 2012 - 20:18:00
  3. My stay in the upstairs unit was wonderful. The flat was tidy and the internet access was seamless. The location is perfect for seeing the sights and enjoying great food! It's extremely walkable to many locations in London. As someone traveling alone, the location is safe and easy to get to by foot or public transport (both the tube and bus.) Barry gave a wonderful tour that was tailored to what I was interested in! I hope to return again soon! I would certainly recommend this rental to others! 08 June 2012 - 12:46:40
  4. After carefully scrutinizing available flats online we selected this one for location, price, and amenities (all the good reviews didn't hurt either). We couldn't have made a better choice. The flat was clean, well-stocked, and conveniently near Waterloo Station (the tube). The neighborhood was reassuringly safe, both day and night. Almost every important attraction in London is within walking distance (we're in our 50s) and if you do stray too far the tube stations are everywhere. Barry couldn't have been a nicer host. He gave us an orientation tour of the area, which we found very helpful, and periodically checked in with us to see that all was well. We would recommend this flat without reservation (no pun intended!). Thanks again, Barry. 04 July 2012 - 19:39:51

    What a find! This place was a great deal for a flat with the perfect location and welcoming host. I've traveled using VRBO a lot and this is the first time I was met at the place and given a tour. His recommendations were spot on (do get coffee around the corner and be sure to take the owners advice on food - he was so right!) The location was simply perfect and I know that when I come back to London that I will check to see if this place is available first. I was traveling alone (I'm a woman) and felt very safe here. I rented the single flat upstairs. Nicely redone bathroom, good bedroom. The place is small but works fine for a single traveler. The view of the garden was really a plus. Again, like others have reviewed, the location can't be beat. I'd love to rent the whole flat with others next time! 27 July 2012 - 12:10:42
  6. As every other review said, the location is the best thing about this apartment. But it wasn't just the location - it was the ovation and Barry's help and inside knowledge that made the huge difference for us. There were 6 of us including 2 grandparents who had never travelled before, and 2 kids 10 and 8. So finding something for everyone was a tricky brief. But Barry was fantastic and the apartment was THE perfect base for the start of our European vacation. His tips on where to go, including restaurants the locals eat at was spot on, and we all had a fantastic time. It was so kind of him to meet us - something you don't get at other locations. And the apartment was great - clean, functional, neat and tidy. And the outside patio was just fantastic - we couldn't believe we were sitting in the middle of London! For Aussies who love the outside life it was ideal! We'll be back - it was a great stay. Thanks Barry! 28 July 2012 - 06:24:36
  7. We had an opportunity to travel to London a few weeks ago, and can not recommend this location enough. My girlfriend and I had just come back from Paris and was looking for a small affordable location for a few days at the end of our trip. This location was perfect! The South Bank was an incredible place, and only a few blocks away from all types of great places to eat and scenes. It was incredibly safe, and was only a few block away from several different Subway/Tube options. Barry was a great tour guide, and when we told him what things we wanted to do, he took the time to build us a great plan. This was our first experience, and now I'm not sure I'll stay in a hotel while on vacation again. We rented just the upstairs room, which was perfect for us (2 people). It was secure and easy to get to, and great affordable place for those who are going to spend most of the time sightseeing. 30 July 2012 - 20:09:38

    Two friends and I rented this flat as we wanted something centrally located and within walking distance to the many wonderful sites in London. Barry met us at the flat on our arrival and spent about 40 minutes of his time giving us fantastic tips, directions and definite places to visit. The flat is perfect for three people who like a bed to themselves but it definitely is suitable for two couples and a kid or two. We only had one issue with the heat but Barry quickly responded and we were warm as toast in no time. We were within walking distance of numerous great restaurants, a grocery store, breakfast/lunch place and a rockin pub called the Thirsty Bear (it's right by the flat, check it out!). We had quick access to the Underground at Waterloo and a short walk to Blackfriar's Station so getting anywhere in London was super easy. Buy your Oyster card as it's the best way to travel! I will definitely stay here again when I go back to London. Barry is an awesome, funny guy and very easy to work with. Thanks for everything Barry...cheers!!! 24 October 2012 - 20:31:49

    Great Space in London. Rented the upper part of the flat, plenty of room for 1 or 2 people. Convenient to everything you'd ever need. Owner was incredibly helpful for the last minute trip and had great recommendations for the surroudning area. Have already recommened the flat to friends and will defintiely try to stay next time in London. Easy access to 3 Underground stations by foot, or by the bus stop in front of the building. Perfect base to see London at an unbeatable value. 13 November 2012 - 07:45:18

    Our group of 4 agreed that this was the absolute ideal place to stay to enjoy London. We rented the whole flat and all of us found it very comfortable and clean. It most certainly met our expectations. We were so pleased to be met by Barry's son, who waited patiently even though we were delayed by over 2 hours. Our park like setting on the patio also added to the ambiance. It was in the heart of activities and wonderful sites as we always walk the riverwalk and the wonderful offset was it was still very much a quiet home to return to. Lots of great restaurants all very closeby and the treat of a community feeling as well. We highly recommend this property if you are considering a visit to London. 07 October 2013 - 12:35:58

    We recently visited London with our two children (ages 7 & 10) from Oct. 10-17 and had an amazing trip. The flat was perfectly located and an easy walk to many of the city's major attractions. We flew to Gatwick and it was a super easy train ride to Blackfriars. We arrived early and Barry graciously met us at the property and explained how everything worked and then took us on a short walk to orient us to the city. He had many recommendation on places to visit, days/times to go and restaurants for the locals. He was easy to contact and very responsive during our stay. While we didn't spend a lot of time at the flat it had everything we needed. Two bedrooms and two baths worked great for our family. The outdoor patio is an extra bonus. We highly recommend this property because of the location and the owner. If we have an opportunity to return to London, we'll definitely stay here again! 02 November 2017 - 16:37:00

    Che scoperta! questo posto un affare, un appartamento nella posizione perfetta e una calda accoglienza. Ho viaggiato parecchio usando VRBO e questa stata la prima volta che qualcuno venuto a incontrami e offerto un tour. Le sue raccomandazioni sono state molto d'aiuto ( prendere il caff dietro l'angolo ed accettare i consigli dei proprietari sul cibo - aveva assolutamente ragione!). La posizione era semplicemente perfetta e so che quando torner a Londra controller prima se questo posto disponibile. Ho viaggiato da sola e mi sono sentita veramente sicura qui. Ho affittato il singolo appartamento sopra. Un bel bagno rinnovato e una bella camera da letto. Il posto piccolo, ma funzionale per un viaggiatore singolo. La vista dal giardino veramente un punto in pi. Di nuovo, come altri hanno scritto, la posizione non ha paragoni. Mi piacerebbe affittare l'intero appartamento la prossima volta! 16 March 2014 - 19:21:34

    It would be hard to be beat the location. Almost all of the main sights are within a 20 minute walk. The flat itself was reasonably spacious for the center of London. The private garden deck gives you added space and a nice quiet place to relax after a day exploring the city. The owner is fun, friendly, responsive and helpful. 31 May 2014 - 12:43:40

    We enjoyed our week and Barry is a great owner and host upon arrival. He gives guests a nice orientation tour and recommendations. Extremely helpful! The back deck is very nice. As all the other reviews have noted the flat is in a perfect location for sightseeing in London. My wife and I along with our two teenage daughter enjoyed our stay. 21 June 2014 - 17:19:55

    As a family of 5 including 3 teenagers we wanted a place that gave us space but more importantly was walkable to many of the sights in London...Barry's place was absolutely perfect! He greeted us on our arrival (midnight due to a train strike!) and gave us great suggestions including eating on the "Cut" - the Indian restaurant there was great. We rented the entire flat and loved having coffee on the patio every morning and the 2 bathrooms came in handy!! Our vacation was amazing and staying in this flat contributed to the enjoyment and memories. 06 July 2015 - 15:13:17

    Visited London with my family from 4-7 September. Reservations were simple payment was done through PayPay making it easy. Barry also worked with us and our early morning arriving allowing us to check into the flat several hours early. At check in he took the time to show us everything in the flat and also took us on a walk around the area pointing both tourists attractions and local hangouts. The flat had plenty of room for 5 adults including a second bathroom and a patio area. The location was absolutely perfect. Just a short walk from just about anything one would want to see or do in London. We will definitely be back! Steve & Tamra Columbus Ohio 12 September 2015 - 10:51:26

    My husband and I were traveling with another couple and we were happy to find a 2 bedroom, 2 bath flat in London with a great location. There are not many to be had! The flat also had a sitting area and kitchen with a lovely patio outside the back door. Very comfortable and pleasant when it wasn't raining!!! We arrived late, after 11:00 pm but Barry, the owner was there to meet us and show us around the neighborhood and give us an idea of where we were in relation to all the sights of the city. Great location with a metro stop near by and within walking distance of many sites, restaurants and one at the corner, The Thirsty Bear which had great fish and chips. The flat was on two floors with two exit areas if needed. There was also an elevator in the building which was helpful with luggage. We would recommend this flat if you are going to London. You can't beat the accommodations and the location! 05 October 2015 - 20:26:28

    Terrific Location for our short visit to London. Home a bit different than we imagined, but appreciated the concern and care shown by owner 11 July 2016 - 13:36:00

    Location, location, location! So close to London Eye, St Pauls and Tower Bridge, Burroughs market. Barry was an excellent host who took time to introduce us to the apt and the best way to see the surrounding tourist sites. There is a lift also to the second floor so no problem if coming with luggage. Apt is on two floors with one room and bath on the top floor. Thanks for the nice stay Barry! 23 December 2017 - 20:29:00

    Barry welcomed us and gave us a great orientation tour. The South bank London location was close to everything. Great experience. 04 January 2018 - 02:31:00
