David a tout fait pour qu'on se sente bien, petits croissants pour le petit déjeuner et d'autres petites attentions très sympathique. Le logement était parfait, très propre et une petite terrasse avec une vue superbe sur la City. Le quartier était très agréable avec la station de métro Canada waters juste à côté. Plusieurs commerces, supérette,... vraiment, nous recommandons ce logement très agréable. Merci encore pour ta gentillesse.
David's flat is lovely, my parents stayed there for a long weekend and it was perfect. It is well located, just 10 seconds from Canada water tube station. The flat is new, super clean and the view from the balcony is amazing. We definetly book it again for their next trip to London.
David was there to meet me when I arrived from Heathrow quite late in the evening. He was very helpful and very friendly in showing me the flat and where everything was. He had very thoughtfully brought in some food and drink to tide me over until I could get to the shops to stock up with groceries.
The flat itself is as it is described; it's quite small but very well appointed and very well looked after in a recently built block - and I also found the bed to be very comfortable! The flat was absolutely perfect for my month's stay in London and to top it off the view from the balcony of the city and of Tower Bridge and the London Eye is superb. The balcony is the perfect place from which to watch the sunset over St Paul's.
There is a Sainsbury's about fifty metres or so from the entrance to the building (staffed by a team of very helpful concierges) and there is a large shopping centre only about ten minutes' walk away.
Canada Water tube station, on the Jubilee line, is virtually on the doorstep as well as a bus station. Although very easy to get in to the West End, say, the location is well away from the hustle and bustle normally associated with London and is only a short walk to the Thames Walk which is a wonderful place to have a quiet stroll on a Sunday afternoon.
I would most definitely like to stay here again the next time I visit London.
This was a great base of operations for our week in London! Very convenient for the tube, nicely set up for self-catering, and since we arrived on Easter Sunday, David had arranged to leave some basic supplies for us. He was helpful and easy to contact throughout the week, and the flat itself is well-maintained, clean, and very comfortable. I'd have no hesitation about staying again or recommending it to my friends.
We throughly enjoyed my stay at the apartment and david was the perfect host, will definitely b going back and will recommend this lovely apartment to friends.
Great place to stay if visiting London as a couple for a few days, as you can come home to your own place to relax. Great access to Jubilee line tube station - less than 200 metres from the building. Well known Supermarket next door.
London skyline, as a view from the balcony and bedroom window is fantastic.
David meet us personally at the apartment on the agreed time and made sure there was some basics in , tea, coffee, milk and juice ...............very nice touch.
Will definitely stay here again and have recommended to friends.

I booked this apartment for my parents' anniversary and David was an excellent host. He was really friendly, flexible and accommodating, and was easily contactable. He even allowed us to get a bottle of champagne into the fridge before my parents arrived which was a nice touch.
The apartment is fantastic, modern, clean and well-equipped and the view from the balcony is a beautiful panoramic of the London.
The apartment is right next to Canada Water station which has the Jubilee line, overground rail and bus connections all over the city and suburbs. You can reach anywhere in London quickly and with ease from here, plus it's near Surrey docs where there are boats to embankment or Greenwich.
The docs are also great for a walk and there are some nice pubs like the Moby Dick and the Wibbly Wobbly bar boat. There is a Sainsbury's and a cafe at the doorstep, a large Tesco, a cinema and a shopping mall 5 minutes away.
I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting London as David is a great host, the apartment is brilliant and you get the peace and quiet of Canada Water whilst central London is only around 15 - 20 minutes away.
