The Space

This listing is for a very sleek yet comfortable apartment in a smart new building in central London. 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. 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 flat is on the top floor in a secure lift service block and 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. Our kitchen has everything you need - dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and is stocked with all the essential hardware and basic ingredients for (email hidden), should you want to stay in you will have everything you need to make a meal. However, since the street is full of gourmet restaurants and bars, boutique shops and great coffee shops, you might be better to ditch the cooking during your stay and head out to explore the local area! 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 flat has wireless (email hidden), sound system and ipod dock to make your stay as comfortable as being at home.

Rental includes cleaning and basic supplies (biscuits, tea, coffee, milk).

  • Apartment very well located!! 10 minutes by walk from London Bridge station.
    Nice and quiet neighborhood. Small shops, restaurants, park to discover all around. The flat itself is spacious, calm, and very well equipped. We felt at home!
    Sophie is very helpful and responsive. Her explanations were perfect!
    We really enjoyed our stay there, and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

  • We've had a wonderful weekend and cannot recommend this beautiful flat highly enough. Sophie has been so brilliant throughout - supportive, informative and thoughtful. She has been genuinely committed to making sure that our stay went as smoothly as possible.
    The flat itself is an oasis of calm, bright and spacious. It's very comfortable and well-appointed - and although we didn't cook at all, we easily could have done as the kitchen is well-equipped. The minute I spotted some books by my favourite writers (notably Carol Ann Duffy) I felt at home.
    It has a great location (just off Bermondsey Street). We really enjoyed getting to know this area better - it was fun just to potter around and discover little green spaces (like the Leathermarket Gardens) and we loved all of the little delicatessens and cafes - and there are some great places to eat (the Garrison Sunday lunch was fab!). It was also a great base for getting to Tate Modern and Borough Market (all on our agenda).

  • The flat is simply wonderful, everything was fine and clean.
    The location is very well located: various buses and underground stations are in walking distance and the streets nearby the flat offer plenty of restaurants and nice shops.
    We felt at home ad we definetely would love to stay again there!

  • Very nice appartment, clean with evrything needed. The building itself is a bit surprising at the first sight, but the flat is really comfy and quiet and large.
    Very helpful host with clear infos on how to reach the place and infos about restaurants, cafés etc.
    The location is perfect in London, 10 minutes from the Tate modern, from (wonderful) Borough market, in a very pleasant and quiet street, 2 minutes from a very nice restaurant.
    Me and my children recommand warmly the place

  • We were very pleased with our choice, the flat was in an excellent location and the instructions given by Sophie were exactly what was needed. The flat itself was in immaculate condition, clean with a very spacious living area. It was so handy to have the basics in the kitchen such as bread and milk which we could use and replace.
    We would most definately use the flat when we return to London as the perfect base to explore but be able to relax in comfort and quiet.
    Thanks Sophie.

  • Sophie (email hidden) - very responsive. The flat is very well maintained and well-located in a great neighbourhood. Borough Market is only minutes away and there are wonderful restaurants and cafés on your doorstep. Would stay here again!

    April 2014
  • Sophie's beautiful flat was a great find. It's well placed for exploring London, with some great restaurants right on the street outside (which we made full use of). The flat is off the main road and is suprisingly quiet for a city centre location. We really enjoyed our stay there, and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

About
I am a 33 year old from London, who somehow wound up living in Detroit. I am a psychologist by training and do psychiatric (email hidden) of Michigan. I was introduced to AirBnB a few years ago, so am an experienced guest, and I was convinced by my hosts on a trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago that it was time to do my part and turn host! I returned home and fortunately was able to convince Chris, my other half, that it was a good plan, so, here we are... We have renovated our home with lots of reclaimed materials and hand built features, and we are very proud of the result. We are also super keen to spread the word that Detroit (email hidden) to live. We've been hosting on airbnb for around 2 years and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have a spare room and are very happy to share our home with almost anyone who is interested in and enthusiastic about exploring Detroit! I also act as manager for my Mum's listing in London. She isn't online enough to (email hidden), 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 (email hidden) from which to explore London. So, please book away - I look forward to welcoming you into my home (Detroit) or corresponding my way to a smooth check in for you in London! Sophie
