Due to a family emergency I had to travel to London at short notice. The owners David and Ida could not have been more helpful. David met me at Kings Cross in his taxi and took me to this delightful apartment. It is modern and cleanly furnished with everything on hand for your stay. The kitchen/diner looked out on to...

I cannot say enough about my choice to rent from David. A lovely man who was available to greet me and give me the "low-down" on the rental and the neighbourhood. Bankside is a vibrant part of London and I had great fun most evenings just remaining in that area and the nearby Borough market. Quick walk to the Underground...

The owners of this apartment David and Ida were such lovely people and very welcoming - a real treat to have the pleasure of meeting them. The apartment was very clean and well designed with all the facilities one would need like a real home from home experience. I would say the apartment and the hosts were great and went...

About the neighbourhood
London's South Bank is one of the best locations for a trip to the capital. The neighbourhood is lively and busy, but has lots of opportunities to relax.
As well as the many local attractions, there are great transport links, and it's easy and pleasant to walk to other tourist destinations.
Our favourite walk is along the south bank via Southwark Cathedral, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, the Royal Festival Hall and the London Eye and crossing Westminster Bridge to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. This can be done in half an hour, with great views of the City of London and St Paul’s Cathedral on the way, but you will probably want to stop along the way to enjoy just being here.
Car not needed
