About This Listing
This newly finished bijou studio flat is adjacent to the owner's home and art studio and has an independent entrance. It is wonderfully secluded, yet situated in the heart of London's culturally rich South Bank. Beautifully detailed and designed, this unique space sits in the back garden of our Georgian terraced house. Private, en suite bathroom with shower.
The studio is well appointed with all new appliances. The kitchenette includes a microwave, refrigerator kettle, sink and is suitable for preparing basic ready-meals, coffee and tea but is not appropriate for full scale cooking; double bed, cable TV and WIFI; iron + ironing board.
Sheets and towels are provided. For stays longer than 1 week, we arrange for a cleaner to come refresh the flat. For your personal laundry there is a dry cleaners nearby that will do a drop off laundry service.
We consider ourselves very lucky to be in such a fabulous location. This vibrant neighborhood has numerous restaurants and shops and Borough Food Market is a 15 minute walk. The cultural amenities of the South Bank are all literally just outside the door (Tate Modern, Old Vic Theater and National Theater, the London Eye etc..) and we are a short walk across the Thames from Westminster, the West End and Covent Garden. We are 2 blocks from the river path- a truly desirable location!
London's vast transportation network spans out from Waterloo Station which is 5 minutes away.

Anne and John were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Anne was always quick to respond to any emails I sent before we left for the UK. The flat was spacious and clean. And what a fantastic location!!! A 5 minute walk to Waterloo Tube Station and within walking distance of many attractions along the Thames. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone planning a stay in London.
Anne welcomed me on my arrival as a single female traveller I felt safe in the area. The location was fantastic, within easy reach of Waterloo, Blackfriars and central London. The accommodation was clean, modern, tasteful and comfortable with everything you need for a short city break. I would definitely stay again and recommend Anne's accommodation to anyone. Thanks Anne
Lovely place, host and location. Cannot get much better. Perfect spot with 3 tube stations within 5-10 minutes walking distance, same is true for various food options. Easy and fast communication with Anne. The only downside might be that they are fully booked for 6 months. We'll try to come back.
Séjour très agréable dans ce joli studio qui est conforme à sa description.
Les petites attentions d'Anne Smith nous ont fait très plaisir.
Le studio est idéalement situé (15 min à pied du London eye, 25 min à pied de Big Ben et de Covent garden).
Pour notre prochain séjour, nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir chez Anne, tout était parfait !!!
Our stay at the South Bank Bijou was utterly delightful. The host Anne was warm, welcoming, very informative and so helpful. Our stay there was like home from home. We had total privacy and sufficient facilities to make our stay enjoyable. The property is situation in such a central location with easy access to public transport and a short walk to tourist venues like the London Eye, Tate Gallery etc.
To be honest the photos on Airbnb doesn't give the accommodation the justice it deserves... It is well worth booking! Thank you Anne for making our visit so enjoyable.
The place is very good! comfortable, the best location near the southbank and at the south of holborn, and good transport around. Everything was very neat and done with great care. Anne was the best host, we had a great experience in this place.
We had a lovely stay in London thank you to Anne's apartment. We arrived after a 30 hour flight and this place couldn't have been more perfect, very easy to get to from Waterloo station and Anne was so welcoming and friendly. The location was fantastic- within walking distance to all the major sights, bars and restaurants and very close (around a block away) to Southbank where you can walk along the river. The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable! This place is by far the best we have stayed with airbnb, we highly recommend and we hope we can come back one day!!
