About this listing
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.

Very nice flat near London Bridge railway station. The location is very interesting to travel in London by buses or the underground (10 min from the flat). There is some restaurants and pubs in the same street so it's enjoyable.
The flat is very clean and calm. Neighbours are very discreet.

Beautyful appartement, very clean and organised, Nice décoration : excellent week end . Highly recommanded.!
We had a great 3 day weekend at this apartment. Totally functional, comfortable and so easy to walk to from the entire Southbank. The metro station is an easy walk. The neighborhood is great and we ate at 3 places within two blocks of the apartment that were great. The best part was the 10 minute walk to Burroughs Market which is the most delightful experience. Apartment was clean and Rudy to use for four of us. Highly recommend.
Accoglienza perfetta, indicazioni lasciate nell'appartamento estremamente chiare e utili. Appartamento splendido, pulizia eccellente, estremamente confortevole e dotato di tutto quanto si ha bisogno in vacanza. Lo raccomando vivamente!
My husband and I spent 3 days with my daughter in London, and the Bermondsey St neighborhood where Sophie's flat is located couldn't have been a more perfect "home base" to access all of the areas of London that we wanted to explore. Great places to eat right in the neighborhood, with Borough Market, the Shard, Tower of London, the Tate, etc. not far away. The flat was clean and well equipped, with some welcoming touches like fresh OJ and milk in the fridge. We would definitely book this flat again on a future visit.
Thank you Sophie for this very nice stay. Your flat was very clean and modern. The neigbourhood is lovely, tube and buses, and night buses are easily accessible. We were close to main attractions like the Thames, Tatemodern, Tower Bridge, Borough Market, the Shard. Lots of nice, fancy restaurants, bars and coffee shops in the street. The flat was perfect for four people.

About the Host, Sophie
I am a 33 year old from London, who somehow wound up living in Detroit. I am a psychologist by training and do psychiatric research at the University 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 is a fantastic place 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 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 home (Detroit) or corresponding my way to a smooth check in for you in London!
