We were travelling as a family -myself, my husband and our three kids (23, 16, and 12) Dealing with John was extremely easy. We had Tom pick us up at the airport (which I would highly recommend - ask to hear his CD - beautiful voice.)
The apartment itself is perfect - very clean and spacious with lots of unique and quirky decor. We loved the towel hooks and the monkey light. It was our first visit to London and I was worried about the location as it is a little away from the touristy sights. It turned out to be ideally located in a very up and coming neighbourhood - lots of nightlife and interesting restaurants. I would have loved to have spent more time there but we were limited to 3 days and needed to get in all of the main London attractions as well. If we had not booked in this neighbourhood - we would have likely missed visiting it and that would have been a shame because it is very unique. We had a great time and will hopefully be back again one day very soon.
Our family of 5 stayed in this beautiful condo for a London vacation. I cannot say how clean, fresh and open the condo was. John was very easy to work with and followed up with us several times. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space. The only warning I would have is that it's quite off the beaten path. I didn't realize there was not a single family restaurant anywhere nearby. Although we felt safe walking around, you should know at first look, the area looks questionable as there are lots of warehouses and odd buildings. The condo itself is in a gated area. I thought we'd be able to walk to the grocery and restaurants. We ended up ubering a lot. As long as you know that, you'll be great. Also, a few things that I would suggest John consider supplying guests (even for an additional fee) would be a small amount of laundry detergent, hand soap for the sinks, and small kitchen items like cooking spray, salt & pepper and small things like that. Also, the frying pans need upgrading. There were several scratches in the teflon, which is not healthy. Also, my son slept on the cot that was provided, but he didn't think it was comfortable, so maybe some additional padding could be provided. Overall, I would certainly stay here again! Thanks, John,
This was a great apartment for a London stay. The decor is really interesting, the living area is large and the two bedrooms are good. The views to the garden and canal are wonderful and we felt safe in the gated complex. It is a nice ten minute walk to the train, has good access to the city and is close to the Olympic Park and a large shopping centre. It comfortably housed our family of four although a sofa bed would have been good to provide separate beds for our two teenaged sons. The trundle beds provided could have been used for young children but were not sturdy/large enough for older kids. Also there are a few things in need of repair including the main shower and door fittings.
Excellent! Close to Olympic Stadion. Very quiet area. Easy to find. Good beds.
Very well equipped. Nice view.
Just got back from a 2 night stay. This apartment is so nice! It is in a great area for visiting Olympic Park but also with good transport links to rest of London. Would give it more stars if I could! It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable with great views over the canal. The owner was very easy to communicate with and responded very quickly to any emails. He also sent lots of details prior to check in. Our family (aged 10 to 77) had a lovely weekend. Thank you!
The location is great. A gated building, secure car park and one very peaceful setting. It's all too easy to forget you're actually in London. Pair this with easy rail and road access and you have a winning combination.
The apartment is spacious, modern and very clean, with ample facilities which you'd expect from such accomodation and you won't be disappointed.
John is very accommodating, friendly, professional and extremely helpful. It was great in January when its was cold and wet, so I would love to be there in the summer months.
Would I rent it again - "yes". Would I recommend it - "yes". Would I endorse John - "yes". What more can I say?
