About this listing
This listing is for a 2 bed/1 bath super sleek apartment in one of London's hottest areas. It is tucked away behind Bermondsey St, so you have a quiet retreat but with some fabulous restaurants and bars on your doorstep.
This beautifully decorated flat is on the top floor in a secure lift service block. It has a huge bright sitting room with views of the London Eye, and a walkway panorama from the Eye, to the Tower of London.
Both bedrooms have light excluding blinds and double glazing to keep the sights and sounds of London out. The main bedroom has a double bed with top-mattress for extra comfort. The office has a sofa-bed to sleep two more guests - please note, this second bed is 3/4 size, so its a cozy fit for two adults, and an uncomfortable night for two large adults.
Our kitchen has everything you need - dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and is stocked with all the essential hardware and basic ingredients, so, should you want to stay in you will have everything you need to make a meal.
The flat has wireless internet, a sound system and ipod dock to make your stay as comfortable as being at home.
The flat is all yours to enjoy, and we will not disturb you during your stay. This is our second home, however, containing our personal belongings, so we ask that you treat everything you find there with the utmost respect.
Interaction with guests
If you need anything during your stay, the best way to get hold of us is via an email on the airbnb app. You will also have the phone number for our local manager and emergency contact should anything urgent need our attention during your stay.
The apartments are set around a quiet courtyard, on a street in Bermondsey St Village - an area that The Times calls "London's most fashionable new area" which is also dripping with history. The street is full of gourmet restaurants and bars, boutique shops and great coffee shops. We are just 10 minutes from Hayes Galleria and the river, and from there you can stroll along the river walk to Tate Modern, the South Bank, West End and City. If you are visiting at the weekend, we are a short walk to Borough Market - London's best foodie market. This area really is vibrant - London's newest gallery, White Cube 2, just opened up next door - so please do come and tell us what new treats you find!
The apartment is located just 10 mins walk from London Bridge Station and Tower Bridge, so has great access to rail, tube and bus services - making for easy access the rest of London. Its also a short walk to the river, from where you can make your way on foot up to all the sights.
Other things to note
Please note, in addition to the main bedroom, the office has a sofa-bed to sleep more guests - but please note, this second bed is 3/4 size, so its a cozy fit for two adults, and an uncomfortable night for two large adults. The sofa in the living room is a comfy double bed too. If you chose to use this as an additional sleeping space, please protect it with linen, and return it to sofa configuration before leaving. We also have a travel cot available if you are travelling with a small child.
There is no smoking inside the house.
The floors are solid hardwood, so please do not wear stiletto heels inside the house.
Please be respectful of our neighbours. Keep noise to a minimum after 11.30pm.
I am a 35 year old from London, who somehow wound up living in Utah. I am a psychologist by training and am a University lecturer.
I was introduced to AirBnB around five years ago, so am an experienced guest, and I was convinced by my hosts on a trip to Hawaii a few years ago that it was time to do my part and turn host! I returned home and fortunately was able to convince Chris, my husband, that it was a good plan, so, here we are...
We hosted dozens of guests in the home we renovated in Detroit, and while we have now moved to Utah, we continue to offer a studio apartment on the lower level of our Detroit home, to guests. We are super keen to spread the word that Detroit is a fantastic place to live, and we think our little corner of the city showcases it pretty well! We now have a cottage that we offer up to guests in St George, Utah. We live on site, in a self-contained unit.
I also act as manager for my Mum's listing in London. She isn't online enough to be a responsive host, so I'm running the show for her with respect to bookings/inquiries etc. She has a beautiful flat in Central London that she uses only for work during the week. Its free most weekends and for the whole of the summer. Its really a fantastic place from which to explore London.
So, please book away - I look forward to welcoming you into my homes (Detroit/Utah) or corresponding my way to a smooth check in for you in London!
