On the first floor above street level with a lift so wheelchair accessible or easy for those less mobile or with children. Easy access to central London! Free secure underground parking available in the building.
Our modern and stylish two bedroom apartment is safe and secure and situated 10 minutes from the heart of the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Greenwich is a World Heritage Site, and an area of historical interest and where the Greenwich Mean Time and the Meridian Line is set. Our famous landmarks include the Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, and Sir Christopher Wren’s Old Royal Naval College. Only 15-20 minutes from Central London, Greenwich is easy to reach by Docklands Light Railway, overground rail, bus and even riverboat. We have an excellent green space by way of our large park, together with a terrific market and lots of quirky shops and places to eat.
The flat itself has two bedrooms, a double room with en-suite shower room and another smaller double room with it's own separate bathroom. The living room has a very comfortable pull out sofa bed that can accommodate two people meaning that the apartment can take up to 6 people. The kitchen has all modern appliances, 2 refrigerators, cooker/oven, microwave, dishwasher together with all the utensils, plates/cups/glasses that you would need. There is reliable, fast fibre optic wifi in all areas of the apartment. There is also a washing machine and clothes rack to wash and dry clothes and an iron and ironing board. We have our own private balcony and a wonderful shared outsize terrace to relax and enjoy. All towels and linen are provided and we even have a hair dryer! There is a fold up cot (crib) for very small infants with clean and good quality bedding and those under the age 3 years old do not count in the pricing structure as "extra guests."

Interaction with Guests

All we ask is that our guests enjoy and respect our home.
If you wish to smoke, we would appreciated it if you did this on the balcony and not indoors. Thanks so much.
Super Easy and convenient!
Very easy to to communicate with Russell in advance about logistics, and he was very helpful with everything.
The flat is super comfortable and they had everything i needed.
Would to love to come back!
We have met only Russel but he was a very nice and relaxed host. He provided a complete info sheet with every detail. We had Oyster cards organised prior to our trip but Russel has as well a few to load cash onto.
The flat was great and it is 100% as in the despriction and the pictures. Outside the flat is Greenwich High Rd. and traffic into the City is heavy even early in the morning. (If you sleep with windows shut not a big issue).
The house itself is very quite and we have not heard a single neighbour.
Trip into the City and back is possible with several options (Underground, DLR, Bus) in a few minutes walk distance. Trip into the City and back with 2 small kids takes some time but it worth it. We would choose the flat again if available for another visit!
Nous avons été accueillis à l'appartement par Geane, une amie de Russell et Alex et avons reçu un SMS de bienvenue de la part de ces derniers. Ils étaient au Brésil, c'est pourquoi nous n'avons pu les rencontrer (les veinards !). Nous pouvions toutefois les contacter en cas de problème et Geane nous avait laissé son numéro de téléphone. Nous avions également reçu par mail, avant notre arrivée, une fiche avec toutes les informations nécessaires concernant la location : code d'entrée, fonctionnement du chauffage, local poubelle, code de la Wifi, modalité lors du départ, etc... Tout était parfaitement organisé par nos hôtes.
Le logement est tout à fait conforme aux photos. Spacieux, chic et bien équipé. La literie est excellente et nous avions a disposition tout ce dont nous avions besoin : draps, serviettes, produits de toilettes et une base de nourriture (sel, sucre, huile, thé, café.....).
L'immeuble est bien insonorisé, nous n'avons pas du tout entendu les voisins.
La chambre des parents et la pièce à vivre donnent sur la rue qui est assez passante : il faut donc prévoir des boules quiez si on a le sommeil léger. Ayant lu cette information dans un précédent commentaire, nous étions équipés et cela ne nous a posé aucun problème.
L'appartement est à deux pas de la station de DLR (qui fonctionne comme le métro, avec la même fréquence) et du supermarché TESCO (que l'on peut voir du balcon). A la station de DLR Deptford Bridge, il faut descendre côté Collège pour se retrouver du bon côté de la rue, à proximité de l'appartement. Chez TESCO, on trouve tout ce qu'il faut (du pain, des sandwichs, quelques médicaments de base, un distributeur bancaire et toute l'épicerie nécessaire) et c'est ouvert jusqu'à 22 heures. Inutile de dire que c'est très très pratique ! Egalement à deux pas, un Fish and Chips et un peu plus loin, à 10 à 15 mm de marche, le centre de Greenwich (que l'on peut également rejoindre en 2 stations de DLR) avec, notamment, un restaurant chinois (le Tai Won Mein) où vous pouvez acheter d'énormes portions de nouilles (à emporter ou à manger sur place) qui vous revigoreront après une longue journée de marche.
Notez qu'à partir de Greenwich, à proximité du Cutty Sark, vous pouvez prendre le bateau avec la Compagnie Thames Clipper (même compagnie que le métro, reconnaissable à son logo identique à celui du métro, mais en bleu) et naviguer sur la Tamise jusqu'au London Eye pour un prix modique (aux alentours de 5 £ avec une Oyster Card ou une Travelcard).
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Londres et l'appartement de Russell et Alex y a largement contribué. Encore merci pour votre accueil !!!
Thanks Russel and Alex. We really enjoyed our stay. You delivered a very complete description on how to get there, on how to go to London and on points of interest in the neighbourhood. Very nice of you also to let us use your car park (we use the eurotunnel).
Very good location to reach London with the DLR-Train. The flat was tidy, spacious and our teenage girls loved the fact that they had a separate bathroom.
My family and I really loved the flat, it was exactly as in the photos. We already knew the area but being so close to Greenwich was great. Russell and Alex communicated with us really well and we had everything we needed. This was our first experience of staying in someone's home but we will definitely be doing it again. Thank you
