El piso es fiel a las fotos de la web, muy limpio y luminoso. Wendy fue muy amable y servicial.
Tara's Wohnung können wir nur weiterempfehlen. Wir wurden von Ihrer Freundin Wendy sehr herzlich empfangen, zur Begrüßung gab es eine Flasche Sekt und einen großen Obstkorb. Alles entspricht ziemlich genau den Bildern, die Wohnung ist großzügig, modern und vor allem sauber. Sie liegt sehr zentral und dennoch ruhig in einer Straße mit vielen Bars und Restaurants. Zu Fuß sind es ca. 10 min. zur London Bridge Station und sogar die Tower Bridge kann man vom Balkon aus sehen, der Ausblick vom Balkon ist herrlich. Auch ist gleich ein Supermarkt in der Nähe, der bis 23 Uhr geöffnet hat. Wendy ist sehr hilfsbereit, organisierte uns einen Adapter und ein Taxi bei der Heimreise. Die Kommunikation war unkompliziert und prompt. Vielen Dank Wendy nochmal für alles!
Outstanding home could not ask for a better location for exploring all the great sites in London. Apartment was well appointed and exactly as advertised cannot think of anything else that you could need to have a great time. Would definitely recommend to all our friends look forward to returning to London sometime in the future.
We loved the flat and the neighborhood. The flat was well appointed, spacious and extremely comfortable for our family of four. Tara and Wendy were always accessible to us and responded quickly if we needed them. There was delicious fruit on our arrival and it was really thoughtful for them to provide freshly ground coffee and milk so we could wake up from our extreme jet lag the next morning and have coffee!
We are foodies so having Borough Market a 10 minutes walk away was amazing. We highly recommend this for families just be aware that you will have to carry suitcases up the last 2 flights of stairs so pack light if you can!
It was perfect for us...we loved returning to our quiet neighborhood after a long day and we would go back again in a minute. Thank you Tara and Wendy!
Very cozy and nice place.
Nice neighborhood, close to good restaurants, markets and metro station.
Tara and Wendy are very nice hosts.
I really recommend.
Very, very nice stay. Warm welcome by Tara's care taker. The pictures are accurate, the view is very nice, and for being located in such an interesting, vibrant neighborhood, it was really quiet at night.
The location is great, a lot of nice cafes, pubs, restaurants right out the door. Walking distance to the Tower Bridge, the Shard...

About the Host, Tara
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!
