About Ms. Christine James
Hello everyone, having worked in London from a young age, I grew accustomed to travelling in and around London and after a few years I chose to settle as a single business woman in this vibrant area of London. They were very exciting times with marbled skyscrapers popping up everywhere and new restaurants to try and new transport links. I drove into town each day and found that this was a convenient location with a wow factor of the river frontage. With off street private parking at the house and the area full of local attractions, this was indeed a find. Then I met my Partner, he lived in the Midlands of England, so I duly moved. However, not wishing to part with this lovely house the idea came to me to rent for short periods. Thus, I would have a foot in the area when I wished to visit. I have family in the area and so this arrangement has proved to be very beneficial to all, sharing the wonderful views and tranquil waters with my new and returning guests.Check out the Special rates apply for same month bookings, where dates are still free.
Ms. Christine James purchased this House in 1997
Why Ms. Christine James chose London Borough of Tower Hamlets
This house struck me as soon as I cast eyes on it. I was not looking to move but immediately had to buy it. It has been a very happy place to live and now my guests can enjoy the ever changing river views and wildlife. My local housekeeper looks after it for me and we both work hard to ensure our guests are made as comfortable as possible. The English Tourist Council, inspect this property every year and grade again. A 4* certificate has been achieved every year for 15 years now. They check that the current regulations are being adhered to and holiday home insurance is in place and everything is as it should be for the Travel Industry. I have been a member of their association for 10 years now.
What makes this House unique
The unique benefits for this house are: Superb River views; local transport connections are excellent; local tourist attractions; good restaurants; quiet private location; quiet streets away from the main traffic areas; good bus service; local London Theatres; Royal London markets. Private off street Parking. More recently, we now have the '02 Orena' for live concerts; the New 'Olympic Stadiums' and the supporting new shopping centre Westfield, at Stratford; not forgetting the new Bike Hire Service from outside the private square. Just £1 per half hour to travel across town and park the bike up somehwere else in another docking station. There is the Emerates Fly Drive which is a cable car ride across from the 02 Arena, high in the sky, across the river to London City Airport. The Shuttle River boat collects folk along the river at the Pier points. From The Royal Docks through to Westminster. Passing by the house just before Canary Wharf Pier. Very good mode of travel. Please visit our dedicated web site where we have posted lots of links to the main areas and attractions. I have seen many sights on the river, a beached Whale, a mother and daughter Dolphin lost, they swam by and ended up at Westminster Pier; the Queens Jubilee last year, all the magnificent tall ships sailed by to moor at the end of each day in Canary Wharf locks. We have many returning guests each year and some of their reviews can be viewed here and on our own web site, noted above. I hope to hear from you soon. (Note: We offer 10% discount off the weekly rate for same month bookings! ) Happy Holidays. regards Christine James

Lovely vacation in sunny London
We thoroughly enjoyed our 8-day visit to London. We had beautiful weather. Christine's wonderful flat made our stay especially comfortable, and she was very responsive to all our questions. We didn't rent a car and, rather, relied on public transportation. The bus and train system was very convenient t. A bit of a hike to get to and from the Canary Wharf tube stop, and the DLR at South Quay plus the various buses stopping close by made for less trekking. There was a great playground with zip line a couple blocks away, which my kids adored. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you!
Beautiful location.quiet neighborhood
This little place on the water outdid itself. Great location only 14 minutes to the DLR Canary Wharf take the Jubilee line to anywhere. The master bedroom overlooked the river,Thames . hope you like steps,cause there are 3 stories of them. Extremely clean, and quiet. I highly recommend your stay here. Remember to bring electrical adapters,they provide a couple but you need them in London. Thanks Christine, loved the place. cheers!
A lovely flat in a fantastic location!
We were very happy and comfortable in the flat. There were 3 adults and 2 children, and we were all very pleased with our stay. Christine has made the flat very accommodating for families, including a portable crib. The location was fabulous; the tube was only a 10 minute walk, there was a great playground across the street, two small grocery stores near by, and the waves breaking outside the windows were very relaxing. The only complaint had to do with the air conditioning as this was not what we were expecting; we are used to this being actual cool air through vents, not simply oscillating fans. Thankfully the heat wasn’t unbearable and there were only a couple of warm nights. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay there again!
Loved, loved, loved the location!
Clean, great location and Christine was fantastic to work with! There was a WIFI issue upon arrival which she promptly got repaired! Loved the view and everything about the flat! We will definitely stay here again!
A perfect location right on the river and 10 minutes from the tube station. Close to Tesco and ASDA, and also close to the many restaurants in the area. Christine has done a great job with the house, it is in perfect condition, she leaves all the information you will need to travel around London, where the local food stores and restaurants are, and different things to do and see in the area. Plenty of room, and if you don't feel like traveling into London, you can sit and watch the ships passing by on the river all day. Just a great experience. My daughter - in - law summed it up best when she said her stay at Riverside felt like a vacation, not a trip to London. I agree 100%
Great Location, fantastic view of The River Thames
Bus transportation is within a 3-4 minute walk from the house. Between riding the bus, taking the tube or train.....it was better than any ride at Disney in the USA. I see no need to have a vehicle in London....especially if you are on vacation.
The breeze off The River Thames kept the house cool all the time. Enjoyed being able to walk from the house down to The Cutty Sark via the underground tunnel. A 20 minute stroll. Ah...the pubs....but that is another story!
We were three (3) couples in our 60's+ from the USA on holiday. We had planned to cook-in some days, but because of our adventures every day.....we only had breakfast.
If you are looking for a quiet, clean and convenient spot.....YOU JUST FOUND IT!
