“17 Riverside”
Reviewed 16 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had a great break staying at this beautiful house for 5 days. We loved the location, with Sunbury village a few minutes walk away and easy to adventure to such places as Bushy Park. The fact the house backs onto the river is just brilliant, and we also enjoyed making use of its own bar area. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here! Also, thanks to Nikki and Julian the kind owners.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review - we are also glad you enjoyed Bushy Park it is great walking there with all the deer wandering around (but slightly odd when you notice a double decker red bus trundling along just behind them!)
We too love the bar area and the way it opens out directly onto the garden and, of course, the river. We look forward to welcoming you back again!

“Well appointed with lovely riverside location”

Stayed for just over 3 weeks in October this year and it was super. We were 4 adults and 1 child and were more than comfortable.

The house is spacious, comfortable and has everything you need for a self-catering visit. If you don't want to cook, a short distance down the road are a couple of pubs and lovely restaurants which are worth a visit. That said the kitchen is super and we ate in most evenings.

We hired a car and never found the street parking to be a problem. The property is well situated for Hampton Court and Kingston, with easy access to the M25 and other touristy sites (we never had any major traffic issues). There are two bus stops directly opposite the house providing public transport options should you need them.

We loved arriving home each afternoon/evening after a fairly long day. Feeding the swans and ducks was a favourite activity (for the adults and the child) and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the occasional boat / canoe come past.

Nicola (the owner) could not have been more helpful both before and during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and there was plenty of information available to ensure we were comfortable.

Thank you for your lovely comments, we enjoyed having you to stay.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay but sorry we did not manage for your son to see "the king and queen"! We too love feeding the ducks and swans and generally sitting on the decking watching the world go by - it's very peaceful and relaxing.

Thank you for your wonderful comments - the swans and their cygnets always provide much entertainment (this is the third year they have been there each time with several young). We are glad everything went well.

Excellent well equipped house. The location on the banks of the Thames makes for a very peaceful and restful break. Family had so much fun feeding the ducks , swans , geese and all their young. Also just watching the river and other wildlife led to some lovely afternoons and evenings. Bar room downstairs with the bi-folding doors is just excellent for family gatherings.
Close to Hampton Court , Windsor , Kingston Upon Thames and other such great places to visit.
Communication with the owner has been excellent throughout the whole booking process. Would not hesitate to return.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Such a wonderful vacation staying at 17 Riverside! The owners were so accommodating and their home was clean, cozy and modern. There were 7 of us staying at the house and we were all very comfortable and had plenty of room. It was very convenient to great restaurants in the town as well as public transportation. It was a lovely community.
We loved staying on the river and delighted in seeing the swans. If they were out for a swim, we were eager to see their return. It was lots of fun! 
We were honestly pleasantly surprised at how wonderful everything turned out to be. Traveling abroad from Boston, we were nervous about the whole process of bringing our family to England. Fortunately, it was great!
Also, during the rental process, Nicole was very helpful and quick to answer my many questions! 17 Riverside has everything available to make for a very comfortable holiday! Thank you for all of your help and for sharing your wonderful home with us!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that your nervousness was allayed once you arrived - I can understand it. We also love sitting on the decking watching the swans and cygnets come and go - they seem to love the end of our slipway for their preening.
We do hope you return for the Henley regatta again next year - this time we will attend to cheer you on!
