My 9-year old son and I stayed at the flat for one week at the end of April/start of May. The apartment was very clean and comfortable - we were very pleased with it. The location is great - the Thames is just a few blocks away and the Tube is about 2 blocks. The hosts were in touch beforehand and during the trip to be sure we had a nice stay. We locked ourselves out once, and they were very accommodating and able to let us in when we returned in the evening. We also found ourselves unexpectedly in need of a babysitter for one evening, and they were very helpful in locating a sitter! I can't say enough good things about them. They went over and above in taking care of us, and we very much appreciated it.
This flat suited our family of 3 perfectly. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfy, it was extremely well kept, clean and quiet. It is literally steps from Borough Market and you can see the Shard out the front door. It's about 2 blocks from the tube (London Bridge station) and close to pubs, restaurants, Globe Theatre, Tate Museum, etc. Try the Fish Kitchen at Borough Market, so yummy! David and Ida were the perfect hosts and David was kind enough to show us how the electric cooker, microwave and washing machine worked. The only downside is that we didn't want to leave this perfect little flat to come home. We would definitely book this flat again.
Can't thank David and Ida enough for this gem of a unit. Very clear instructions, very close to London Bridge station for all connections, very close to the Borough Markets for picking up anything (especiallly cheese) . Everything exactly as per the pictures, just a fantastic place to base yourself as we did for one week. 110% clean, 100% functional facilities and hosts that really care.
Stop looking elsewhere and just book this one immediately.
Great Place near Borough Market and London Bridge station. My family enjoyed it very much. David was a great host too!
Congratulations to David & Ida, what a great property great location 2 minutes from Borough Market. This is a top spec flat with everything you could want,very comfy bed with hotel quality bedding, this also applies to all the fixtures. David & Ida are very welcoming. Our first time in this part of London, great base to explore South London & the Market. We cannot recommend this property highly enough!
Loved the flat & location is great adjacent to London Bridge station so good access to Underground system. Would happily return
Since you may focus in on this beginning
I want to tell about the recommended place to eat -Pizza Express, a short walk from the apartment. A few doors down is the Globe Theater and across from the restaurant is a dock to catch one of the water 'taxis' to take you to Greenwich, Westminster Abbey area, and the Tower of London. Metro is near by but it easier and picturesque to go on the boat. You can use the Oyster Card for both
Our trip to London was enhanced by renting the flat in boroughs market. The owners were the best -helping us with any problems,giving us input on places to eat, how to get around,etc.
Very comfortable bed, great shower, great place to come back to after a day of touring
Only one thing we never got the hang of - getting the heat to work to take the chill out of the unit. The owners make attempts to show us but We didn't manage to get it working. So We ended up turning on the stove burners to warm up the place
When we go back to London this will be our first choice to stay
