Barry's apartment was a great find. Spotlessly clean, well laid out and comfortable for a couple. Nice linen and towels. Exceptionally well-stocked kitchen with all the basic provisions. Perfect place to arrive after a long flight. Barry is the ideal host.
Great location - two minute's walk to the opera and most of London's tourist attractions within a 20 minute walk. Would definitely recommend this one..

Very well maintained apartment. Fridge thoughtfully provisioned by owners. Barry and Jill welcoming, kind and helpful. Area a little noisy until after midnight but not excessively so. However, that is to be expected. Excellent central London situation for sight-seeing etc. Highly recommended.

The Covent Garden Apartment is a great place to stay. Barry was great with answering questions I had before the trip and helping with restaurants for Valentine's Day. He and Jill met us at the flat and gave us a great tour of the flat and made sure they explained everything we would need to know.

The flat is very clean, well maintained, and has everything necessary for a stay in London from some food items, wifi, travel books/maps, iron, hair dryer, etc. It is well laid out and has a very homey feel to it.

It is about a 5 min walk from Covent Garden - close, but away from the hustle and bustle of the area. Covent Garden Tube Station is less than a 5 min walk and Leicester Square Tube Station is about 7 mins walk. So much to see and do in the area and even an easy talk to Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and other sights. Definitely a great location!!

There is a very small corner market across the street, a Marks & Spencers with food near Covent Garden Tube, and a bigger Tesco's about a 10 min walk from the flat. easy to stock up on food for use at the flat.

We highly recommend this flat and will definitely stay here again.

My sister and I had only 3 days in london and we wanted to stay central. This apartment was perfect, very cosy with everything you needed for a lovely comfortable stay. The bed was wonderful we slept so well. We were in walking distance of most if not all the major attractions,and in the heart of theatre land, everything was on our doorstep.
Thank you Barry and Jill for making our stay extra special with all the little extras
You have thought of everything. Will definitely return to your lovely apartment.

“Our new favourite apartment in London!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have stayed in numerous hotels and apartments in London but this is now our favourite. The process begins with a very efficient and friendly booking process with the owner. He and his wife met us on arrival when he told us everything about the apartment and the local area. Although not huge, it is cosy and comfortable and ideal for two people and a great place to come home to after a busy day. The decoration and furnishings are fun, stylish and to a very high standard and the cleanliness is second to none. The numerous little extras supplied in the kitchen and bathroom are a lovely touch and and add to the enjoyment of the stay. The air con and heating are very easy to use and ensure comfort all year round and this is in addition to the wi-fi which is also included in the price. I can't think of anything negative to say about this apartment and from now on it will be our new 'go to apartment in London' and by the way I have written this review during our stay! I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone wanting a real home from home in a central, vibrant and fun location close to the underground and all the main attractions.

Upon arrival to London, I met the owners at the apartment who were so welcoming and friendly. I enjoyed my stay in the apartment as it was stocked with lovely little treats and it was extremely close to Covent Garden tube station. The apartment cosy and I loved it! I would recommend anytime. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. :)
