We stayed here for a few days in April and it was perfect. The location has easy access to the underground and is close to many attractions, pubs, and good food. The terraces are beautiful and we had good weather so we were able to enjoy them with a couple of bottles of wine. Tara was extremely helpful in giving us suggestions about places to visit. The place was quiet and very cheery. Thank you so much.
L appartement de Tara était bien situé, proche du centre, ainsi que de l aéroport en train (arrêt London Bridge) très facile d accès! Il était propre et conforme aux images! L hôte était très sympa et accueillante!
This is a fantastic apartment. It is spacious, homely and very comfortable. The house itself is very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. A really nice touch are the everday provsions provided by Tara and her team to get you started (milk, fruit etc).
The area is excellent, and is a main reason we have stayed here numerous times. There are great cafes, bars and restaurants all within a stones throw away. What is fantastic is that although it is a 'hip and funky' area, it is also quiet and respectful for residents.
Great apartment. Fabulous location with loads of great bars, restaurants and shops nearby, and a short walk from London Bridge Station giving easy access to the whole of the city.
Instructions from the host were very thorough both before and on arrival. Apartment and facilties were exactly as described. Tara and Wendy were both very quick to respond and offer help when required.
Would recommend this to anyone looking for a central location in a hip neighbourhood.
Tara was always helpful.We had a lot of problems with our flight but Tara was always helped us and waited for too (website hidden) is just great i could live there forever and everything was just as she told us.Tube is 10 minutes walk away and you can find a 24 hour open market in just 5 minutes(trust me its hard to find something like that in London). You should definetly stay here
L’accueil de Tara a été très sympathique et chaleureux.
L'appartement est très confortable et très bien situé, le seul petit reproche est que nous n'apprécions pas la moquette dans les chambres, nous préférons les parquets, c'est beaucoup plus sain.
la terrasse extérieure est très agréable mais elle doit l'être encore plus le printemps et l'été.
Tara was a fantastic host.
I was welcomed by her assistant Wendy who helped me the suitcases and showed me the flat. A bottle of Champagne,huge bowl of fruits, coffee, milk, ... was all waiting for me which made me feel very homely and special.
Flat is on 4th floor which gives amazing views over London Bridge area, you can literally see tips of Tower Bridge, Shard feels like a stone throw away and in the morning you can literally watch sunrise from your bed ...
The reception room has a sliding door onto the terrace which I found an absolute treat for myself as i just love private outside space.
The kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and washing machine.
I stayed 2 weeks so I had a cleaner coming over which was really a bonus for me, as most of the time i was just working (doing my art) and it was nice to have the flat freshened up.
There is a small Local Sainsbury store almost across the street with food markets on Saturdays, if you need bigger shop, I found Lidl about 15 min away.
I would definitely recommend try some food out as the Bermondsey street is full of pleasant cafes and restaurants and has amazing easygoing feel. Or order wood fired pizza from local Basilico take-away shop. Mnamy;-)
Also communication wise, Tara was absolutely fantastic, if there was something I needed she responded quickly and had it sorted shortly.

I really love living and working in London. Sampling all the delicious foods in the many restaurants, visiting one of the many markets, galleries, parks or plays. Strolling up my road - Bermondsey Street, stopping off at the bustling Antiques Fair and Borough Market. As you can see I like good food, good company in a great spaces. I am adventurous, with a good sense of humour; someone who believes you shouldn't take life too seriously and live it to the ful!
