Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + sofabed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-max 6)

Probably the best located flat with the best reviews on VRBO!

You can -

rent whole unit as a 2 bed/2 bath (complete with sofabed in the living room), kitchen & private deck , perfect for 4 people, max 6 ...with its own private entrance - Great for guests wanting a wonderful location at a 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 restuarant 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!

Broadwall is arranged over 2 floors & has all amenities. It comprises of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the downstairs one is en suite with shower and a bath whilst the upstairs unit has shower facility. 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 sofa bed.

Hallways and living/dining & bedrooms feature beautiful cherry wood flooring.

The kitchen has quality designer units featuring curved breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave, toaster stainless steel hob with build in oven and extractor hood.

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.

If it is not available, don't panic, I have another property minutes away ideal for 2.

We are proud of our 'Reviews' - don't forget to check them out!

Note - We are expecting painting work to the outside of the building for about a week somewhere between May-September 2017. It should not affect guest enjoyment of the property inside, however there may be some restricted access to the deck area.

To live here was to walk to work & live in Heaven!

Friends would stay & tell me how much they loved it.

The property has a fantastic deck which provides great extra space for adults & children.

The proximity to the amenities & attractions offers great savings on transport costs too.

All in all, a great vacation option!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Great Guest-translation

We just arrived from a week's stay in London and the truth is that we have returned delighted with the house. These are, in our opinion, the strengths of this property:

- Location, location and location: the apartment is in the heart of London, close to the London Eye. In this way we were a short distance from the main tourist resorts. At the same time, it is at the gates of a not so crowded by tourists area; so you find usual services (supermarkets, etc ...) under normal conditions.

It also is within walking distance of Waterloo station, so you can move quickly to anywhere in the city.

- A terrace charming: We have had the great good fortune that we have had a great time, so in the morning we could have breakfast on the terrace of the property or sunset we could relax with a beer. The truth is that before we did not go much with it, but it gives a lot of charm to the apartment. Also, just around the corner it is an Italian cafe serving excellent coffee and pastries.

- Relation with the owner: the relationship has been by email and has worked smoothly and cordial. The first day we made a presentation of the neighborhood, which was of great help to guide us and to know (and be known) any special shops.

Otherwise, the house corresponds as described on the website. It is fully equipped, giving the opportunity to prepare some meals and relax at the end of the day, in our case, far more than in a hotel.

This was our second experience with Homeaway and the result has been highly satisfactory.

Perfect space at an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

The flat is lovely. The rooms are comfortable and the little patio at the back was a treat. We were very close to everything! We walked everywhere and had great options for breakfast, lunch and diner super close by. Barry is a great host and gave us a little tour of the neighborhood and lots of tips. We had a wonderful stay.

Fabulous! Great location, perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment simply could not be in a better location. We were able to walk to many sights and plays. Close also to lots of great pubs and restaurants. The accommodations were inviting and comfortable. The outdoor patio was lovely as well. Barry was a fun and well informed host who gave a great welcome tour, We were oriented and ready to see the city and liked him so much we had to have our picture made with him.

Ideal location and great space

  • 5 of 5

This flat is in a perfect location. We were able to walk everywhere! It is close to tourist attractions as well as local sites. The flat itself was clean, spacious, and quiet (though we could hear some construction workers in the morning). The patio out back was a bonus, and we enjoyed relaxing outside after a long day. Barry made our stay so comfortable and easy, responding quickly to our questions and accommodating our needs. He met us upon our arrival and took time to show us around the neighborhood. We would happily stay there again and recommend this property highly.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time at this property. The location is exceptional! We could walk to almost all the major attractions. We are a family of 5 and we all enjoyed it. Having breakfast on the patio was a great start everyday. The owner was very helpful! He found a parking for our car. A great experience!
