The Space

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. We can provide you with a pay-as-you-go mobile phone for local calls.

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 launderette nearby.

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.

  • We would definitely recommend Anne's place to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in London. Not only is it comfortable, practical, neat and tidy, but also located in a strategic spot in the city. Anne takes care of every little detail, she is a great host!

  • This was fantastic place for a couple who wants to be close to the life on the southbank. It was close to Waterloo station for train and underground, close to the river for boat cruise access, close to the London eye and you couldn't count the number of restaurants in the area. The flat was well appoimted with all that was needed and more. The host was personable and acommodating The experience exceeded our expectations

  • For us this was the perfect place to stay in London. We used to live in London and visit often to go to Theatre,exhibitions etc. The flat is well equipped, very comfortable, quiet and within walking distance of so many of the theatres,galleries,restaurants and other places of interest. For anything a bit further afield Waterloo is an excellent transport hub.

  • Staying at Anne`s flat was a very nice first airbnb-experience. Anne and John are absolutely friendly, attentive and relaxed people. We especially appreciated the `little extras´ like the tea, coffee and milk or the flowers on the table.
    The flat is ideally situated, so that you can reach many of the places of interest with great facility. I definitely recommend that little cosy flat and would come back to it myself if and when I`m looking accomodation in London again.
    Thank you for your hospitality, Anne and John!!

  • I hit a bulls eye with Bijou Studio.
    Perfectly (email hidden)parate gate and entrance.
    Walking distance to GLOBE Theatre and Tate on one hand and Soho and Westminster on the other.
    John years ago worked as a designer on Melrose Ave in LA,and he designed the Studio.Little music box.
    Ivonne(my wife) just said to me :
    "you know what surprised me the most the moment we arrived from Heathrow Airport and Anne let us into the flat?
    that my favourite coffee,my favourite tea and cream were waiting for me .
    As if somebody knew me.
    Uncanny.

  • The small but extremely well equipped flat is very conveniently located on South Bank, only a 5-minute walk either from Waterloo or Blackfriars station. The flat is at the back of the house with a separate entrance and therefore very private and quiet. It is very clean, has a private bathroom and even a small kitchen with everything you need. Anne is a wonderful person, very friendly and helpful. She was always there when we needed her and it was a real pleasure to chat with her and share our experiences. It was our umpteenth time in London, but never before did we have such a cosy place to stay in such a perfect location. We will definitely stay at Anne's place again!

  • Fabulous stay in this exceptional space with hosts who went the extra mile to make our stay perfect. Communication after first day to check we were settled in OK was reassuring, Good points of stay, great location with short walk to Southwark, great food in area. Very safe, private, quiet and secure spacious accommodation. Automatic heated towel racks and quality house linen. A lovely touch was the fresh tulips on the (website hidden) book library most varied and useful. Great quality and clean kitchen items in microwave and fridge. I would rate this a ten out of ten stay. Thank you Ann and John.

  • There is no better value than a stay in this very secure and private South Bank Flat !!!!! The location is the best that I have ever stayed in for a world class city. All was within walking distance. Almost no need for any transport once you get settled in this WONDERFUL well appointed flat. Yes,we will be back to this true gem of a place.
