  • The apartment is fab- the location is brilliant, and the facilities are fantastic, a real home from home. Bermondsey is a really cool place to stay, easy walking distance from London Bridge tube to the apartments, with nice places to eat and drink very close by. Tara and Wendy were great- met us to check in, no problems, left us a bottle of fizz and a big bowl of fruit. Thanks!

  • This is a bright, spacious apartment with great dining literally at its feet. Tara (email hidden) who's thought of everything, you'll feel very at home here, from the generous welcome through.

  • Tara met us at the flat and chided the taxi cab driver for not knowing how to get to the flat. I liked her right off for doing that and making us feel welcome. Unfortunately, the lift was out, but she helped carry our luggage to our flat, which was on the top floor. She also kept after the lift company to get it repaired swiftly. She also volunteered her husband to help us with our luggage when we left, which he did. It was a pleasure dealing with her.

    The flat was exceptional (email hidden) for two families in that it offered shared and private spaces. The flat is located on a street teeming with good restaurants. It's an easy walk to many London sites as well as an easy walk to the tube, which can take you anywhere.

    Tara had stocked the flat with fruit and champagne. How wonderful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

  • The apartment was exactly as I expected. Well furnished, large and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking across to the church,the lively street life and views of the city. Great street for cafes, galleries.

  • Tara's flat is very comfortable and spacious, and the two bathrooms very equal in size and amenities (important because my husband and I were traveling with another couple). We enjoyed Bermondsey and all of the great restaurants close to the flat. The tube is an easy walk, and the flat was a nice quiet base from which to explore London. Tara and Wendy were easy to work with and there were no problems at all. Would stay there again if we find ourselves in London. I am taking off one star because the clothes dryer was broken, but that was just a small disappointment/inconvenience. Thanks!

    Just a note to add it don't advertise having a dryer in my amenities list - just a washing machine.
    THanks!

  • Fantastic place, wonderful and helpful host. We were nine people having both flats nr 16 and 18 - it couldn´t be better!

  • We loved staying at Tara's Bermondsey Street Penthouse flat. It was perfect for our family of 4. Tara was wonderful to work with before, during and after our stay- and welcomed us warmly. I especially appreciated her tips on London and extensive list of sights and restaurants. We loved the neighborhood, the restaurants close to the flat and the ease of getting around the city. The flat was beautifully decorated and spacious. We loved having the 2 bathrooms since we have teenagers. The beds were very comfortable and the showers hot and strong- fantastic! Thank you Tara for your hospitality. We hope to stay with you again soon.

  • I stayed at Penthouse Bermondsey Street with my family during Easter and we couldn't be more satisfied with the flat and with Tara's hospitality. The place has a great location, is large, clean, comfortable and well decorated, with good furniture and a well equipped kitchen. Tara warmly received us with fruits, Easter eggs and a bottle of champagne, showing us how to use the equipment of the house and giving us tips of good places to visit in London. During our stay she was also extremely accessible and helpful anytime we had some question about the flat. We definitely recommend it!

About
I really love living and working in London. Sampling all the delicious foods in the many restaurants, visiting one of the many markets, galleries, parks or plays. Strolling up my road - Bermondsey Street, stopping off at the bustling Antiques Fair and Borough Market. As you can see I like good food, good company in a great spaces. I am adventurous, with a good sense of humour; someone who believes you shouldn't take life too seriously and live it to the ful!
