About This Listing
Nicknamed by some as the 'razor building' due to its three rooftop wind turbines, Strata is, at present, the tallest residential building in London.
Elephant & Castle is conveniently located for very easy access to Borough Market, Bermondsey Street, Maltby Street Market, the West End, South Bank, the City of London and Canary Wharf.
A 24 hour concierge ensures security for all residents and a television, wireless internet, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, towels and hairdryer are all provided.
Guests will be welcomed by myself (or very rarely, my long term housekeeper, Maria) to the apartment to ensure all is in order. I have lived in the neighbourhood for more than ten years and would be happy to share local knowledge and recommendations - please ask.
Elephant & Castle is one of the best connected destinations in London, offering easy access to the City, West End, East End, South Bank and popular suburbs in the south-west, such as Brixton and Clapham. Two underground lines, Bakerloo and Northern, as well as 28 bus routes, are all located less than five minutes' walk from the apartment.
Trains from Elephant & Castle overground train station offer connections to Herne Hill, Luton, Peckham, Wimbledon, Sevenoaks, St. Pancras, Streatham, Sutton and many more.
Where possible, I am happy to be flexible with check-in and check-out times. Please ask of you need to arrive earlier and I will do my best to accommodate.
I use Airbnb as I do not wish to be bound by many rules and conditions and I assume my guests do the same. Apart from a maximum of two guests, no pets or smoking, I do not have any house rules, just a polite reminder that this is my home too and a request that guests keep this in mind during their stay.
It was great to visit Charl's apartment again. The apartment matches exactly the description and pictures. Charl is a great host who does his utmost to make you feel welcome.
Being a recurring guest, it was nice to see the development in the neighbourhood.
Charl apartment is perfect!! It has everything we need. Very clean and comfortable apartment. Good location. Close to elephant and castle station. Unfortunately me and my husband didnt meet charl personally. Charl's housekeeper Iara is the one who welcome us. She really did a very good job in cleaning. Everything are clean and spotless. Charl is generous enough to provide us fresh milk, fruit, juice and bagels during our stay. He also a very organize person. He gave us a print out list of guidelines and local restaurants recommendation. I wld highly recommend charl's apartment as a place to stay in London.
It was really nice apartment. The room was so clean and near to station. I had great trip in London becouse of Chals. Thank u Chals.
Charl's apartment was exactly as described and as seen in the photographs- perhaps even more spacious than it looks. It has absolutely everything that you need for a stay in London and more. When I arrived at the apartment Charl's housekeeper met me to show me around and to help get me settled in. She was very polite and made me feel very welcome. The apartment was clean and I was even given some fresh milk, bagels, yoghurts, fruit and juice to have for my stay. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone thinking about staying in London for business or leisure. It's location is very central and the tube station is minutes away. He building itself is very impressive and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in it!
Charl’s apartment was the perfect location to explore London. The underground station Elephant & Castle is just around the corner. The apartment is very clean and looks exactly like on the photos. The view from the 20th floor was very impressing. Everything you need is available in the apartment, also a plug adapter ;-) The check-in and the check-out was uncomplicated, Charl’s response to my questions was very quickly and very friendly, and he did everything to have a good stay. I would absolutely recommend this apartment, and for my next trip to London I will book Charl’s apartment again.
Had a great stay in Charl's apartment, 2 min from the tube stop which was great and a very nice building. The studio was brilliant and very clean and fresh.
Would definitely recommend anyone staying here!
Char was a very good host! His appartement is awesome and the view is even better. The only problem is that it's quiet noisy. Char gave us great advice and he was very accomodating with the check-in and check-out times. We enjoyed it a lot!
About the Host, Charl
I am a 35 year old professional, living and working in London, where I have lived since 1997 after spending my childhood in South Africa. I return to Cape Town as often as I am able however my list of 'must see/return to destinations' is so long I am struggling to keep up.
I love discovering the city of London (it is hard to keep up - there are new destinations every week!) and other parts of the world too. I am always very interested to know why people visit London and what they most look forward to - apart from those visiting on business of course.
I consider myself to be honest, polite and considerate. I really do believe in treating others like I would like to be treated. I also have a very mild case of OCD ;-).
Please do ask if you'd like to know anything else about me - I would happily share...within reason.
