The flat is situated in the basement of a lovely house in a quiet street next to Greenwich Park. We spent a wonderful week with our two children (11 and 9 years old) in Greenwich. It´s a lovely place to start sightseeing so we went by boat, DLR and tube to London city, to Canary Wharf and to Greenwich itself. There are several supermarkets and the wonderful Greenwich market to buy food. The flat has got a well equipped kitchen. We also went to some pubs and restaurants in Greenwich and London and we especially enjoyed the service and the friendly people. Thanks al lot to the landlord and his family, who are very nice and helpful. We booked a taxi transfer (landlords' advice) from London City Airport to the flat (20 GBP) and had a nice driver and a comfortable journey. We will come back to this flat for our next stay in London...and this will be very soon!!!

Manager response: We are always very happy to have guests from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. We find that they appreciate the same level of cleanliness and attention to detail that we like to provide and expect when we are guests. Also, we find that the most important thing for a holiday is for the guest to have a "hassle free" time and find that the airport transfer service, where the driver meets the guest at the airport with the key especially if a late arrival, with children takes out the biggest problem from the holiday and allows the guest to relax and enjoy their stay more. We look forward to having you back at our home.
Die geräumige Kellerwohnung in sehr freundlichem Viertel liegt neben dem wunderschönen Greenwichpark, der gerade voller reifer Maronen war, als wir hier waren. Der Weg zur Ubahn (Zone 2) war so ein Genuss und bot Gelegenheit Ruhe zu tanken vor einem turbulenten Tag in der City. Es ist genug Platz im Appartment für bis zu 6 Personen, die in den zwei modern eingerichteten Badezimmern viel Komfort genießen. Menschen mit Rückenbeschwerden und Reinlichkeitsfanatiker würden sich hier nicht wohlfühlen. Für alle anderen ein absoluter Geheimtipp um London zu erkunden!

Manager response: Liebe Gäste, es war nett, sie kennengelernt zu haben und ich musste sehr lachen wegen der Schlüssel. Sie waren überpünktlich. Danke für die wunderbare Bewertung und ich hoffe, dass Sie einige der Kastanien, die Sie im Park gefunden haben, rösten konnten. Wir bedanken uns auch für den Hinweis bezüglich der Matratzen. Wir werden sehen, ob wir sie in der Zukunft austauschen können, da sie recht hart sind, aber für etwas schwerere Menschen etwas härter sein könnten. Ich würde mich freuen, Sie bald wieder in London begrüßen zu dürfen

Our family (mum, dad + two teenage daughters) spent a delightful week in Greenwich. Julian and Francesca titled this apartment "Your Home Away from Home" - and that's exactly right, coming back after a long day of sightseeing felt like coming home. The apartment is spacious, in fact exactly as shown on the photographs. Having a fully fitted kitchen is a great convenience. As for the location, it is in a nice and quiet part of Greenwich. Maze Hill railway station is indeed very close to the apartment, with a regular train service to the city centre. Getting to the Cutty Sark DLR station literally is 'a walk in the park' - although this was a bit further away, we mostly aimed for the DLR and enjoyed the stunning views over the Thames from Greenwich Park along the way. The apartment is a bit uphill from Greenwich town centre (the daughters thought it 'a steep climb', but that only shows their Dutch flatlandish outlook...), but you're rewarded with a great view! We had planned to spend most of the week in and around the City, but ended up spending quite a lot of time in Greenwich itself, taking in the sights (Planetarium, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich town centre). The owners were very helpful in the process of booking the apartment and provided lots of information to make our stay as agreeable as possible. All in all: highly recommended!

our stay at Greenwich
We stayed here for a week, last May, two couples with 2 children. The property was exactly as described and as we expected. It is comfortable, well maintained and clean, in very nice surroundings (just next to Greenwich Park). It is just a short walk to the Railway Station and to the buses that connect you to the DLR. Greenwich itself is quite a nice place to be, with attracions not to be missed: The Royal Observatory, The Planetarium, The Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark (it is reopening in Spring 2012), and Greenwich Park itself. The owners are particularly helpful and responsive (the landlady- a young italian woman we had the pleasure to meet, replied to any questions we asked almost in real time, before and during our stay). You can also ask for a car service to take you from/to the airport with your house keys. We are totally satisfied with our choice and would like to strongly recommend this apartment. We also hope to come back here soon.

Manager response: Dear Carlo, Thank you very much for an absolutely fantastic review!!! We are glad you had a wonderful time while in our apartment in London and it seems like you really took advantage of everything Greenwich has to offer. We look forward to seeing you in the future!!!

Ocupamos el departamento entre el 09/12/10 al 16/12/10. Somos una pareja con 2 hijos adolescentes de Argentina, pero el departamento hubiera podido recibir a 6 o más personas. El departamento ofrece todas las comodidades y el confort esperados con amplias habitaciones, cocina y dos baños. Los días que estuvimos fueron muy fríos, pero la casa estaba bien calefaccionada. No entendíamos bien la regulación de la calefacción al principio, pero los encargados de la casa resolvieron inmediatamente la consulta solucionándonos el inconveniente. El entorno es inmejorable. En un tradicional barrio, cerca del Parque, a dos cuadras del tren o bus para llegar en poco tiempo al centro de Londres. El centro histórico de Greenwich es muy pintoresco y se pueden encontrar supermercados (económicos), pequeños negocios, restaurantes, pubs, farmacias, cibercafé etc. Estar allí nos permitió ver cada noche al regresar a la casa la línea verde del láser que marca el meridiano cero en el cielo y pasar por debajo de ella asi como ir en barco hasta el centro de Londres. La altura de Maze Hill ofrece una interesante perspectiva del Canary Wharf. Al momento de escribir estas líneas contando nuestro viaje ya hemos recomendado este lugar a nuestros amigos en Argentina y Alemania. Bettina y Carlos

Manager response: Muchas gracias Carlos por la critica positiva que nos han dado sobre nuestro apartamento y el buen tiempo que pasaron en Greenwich. Era muy interesante ver la persspectiva de un huesped especialmene como notaron la linea verde del Meridiano de Greenwich. Gracias por las recomendaciones y hasta la proxima :-) Atentamente, Julian y Francesca
I chose this property because of it's location and proximity to certain parts of London that I like very much (Greenwich Park, Blackheath village, the royal observatory, etc). The property was immaculate on our arrival; a little cold but that was soon remedied once the heating had been on for a few hours. The instructions provided on local access including transportation and points of interest were useful. There were two areas that I felt let the property down a little - the first was the fact that although the satellite provided some 1000+ channels the local TV channels were not accessible and most of the channels seemed to be arabic. The second was the fact that reception for mobile telephones was extremely poor (although I recognize this is nothing the owner could have helped) making communication challenging, a land line would have helped. The stairs to the property from the street are a little daunting for the elderly; if at all possible I would suggest that they be widened, perhaps have a small landing in between and a much better railing. I would recommend the property to anyone who is not afraid of using public transportation and who enjoys walking. Access to central London is as easy as advertised and there a plenty of local, off the beaten track attractions. It is extremely spacious, surprisingly full of light for a basement flat; the two bathrooms were a most definite plus, as was the ease of use of the wifi.

Manager response: Dear Anita, Thank you very much for taking the time to fill out the guest review on our property. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and welcome the opportunity to address some of the changes you suggested to make other guests stay more comfortable and welcome. I think that this was one of the first bookings that we have had for an elderly and less mobile couple and we agree that the typical narrow English Steps are not the best, especially at night when it is dark and Icy. You were great guests especially when hit by the severe conditions we experienced including the earliest snow blizzard in a very long time. We hoped the shoveling and the outdoor lights on the passageway helped. We look forward to seeing you again...and maybe you can visit the home during a better time of the year :-)

We´ll come back
We´ll come back
Very good equiped, clean and stylish furnitured basement-apartement in a quiet street 50 m away from Greenwich park. The station (15 min. to Cannon street) is only 5 min. walk away. 5 min. walk more, there is a supermarket, some shops and restaurants. From the room on the back side of the house, there is a view (but no access) into a well-groomed garden. In the kitchen you find all tools and machines you need for cooking. The washing-machine and the PC (free internet-access) worked without problems. All finacial transactions (inc. repayment of the deposit) have been very correct. The keys we got from a pick-up-service at Heathrow-airport (because we arrived out of office-times of the administrator) - organized by the administrator. The transfer to the house costed 56 BP. We enjoyed the stay very much and we´ll come back, when we are in London next time. German family with 8-year-old son 6 days in Easter-holidays 2009

Manager response: Thank you for your comments regarding our property. We always feel that the most important point is that the flat, towels and linens are super clean and neat for you when you arrive and that you have all of the equipment you would have at home in order to make your holiday pleasant. We were also overjoyed to know that the service we have set up with the airport transfer company meeting you at the airport with the keys worked out fine. It certainly is one headache not to have to worry about especially after a tiring flight. We look forward to having you back again.
We loved it!
We loved it!
We (1 adult and 3 teenager) had a nice stay in Greenwich. We loved the fact that the flat was so close to the city either by National Train from Maze Hill or by DLR/Bus/Tube. Just 1 minute walk and you enter the wonderful Greenwich Park from which we enjoyed the view over Canary Wharf and the City until Westminster! However, the location is very quiet, we slept even better than at home in Switzerland! Greenwich is a lovely place with lots of possibilities for sightseeing as well as pubs. We especially recommend making a trip by boat from Greenwich Pier to Westminster. The flat has everything you need for cooking and for buying food there are grocers within a 5 minutes’ walk. The owner is very friendly and there has been no problems neither to get the flat in a cleaned state nor with payment/repayment of the deposit. We would come back anytime!
