This is the second time that ourselves and our friends have stayed at Tara's lovely apartment in Bermondsey Street. We love the apartment because of its excellent location. Bermondsey Street is full of fun places to eat, drink or have coffee - and there's the very special glass blowing workshop and gallery at the far end of the street. The roof terrace and the view are superb and provide a great added attraction to the living area. The bedrooms are everything you need for a holiday stay and the kitchen and bathrooms are very well equipped.
The pre-arrival communications with Tara went very smoothly as we expected and the greeting we received on arrival was one of true welcome. Alltogether a great apartment to use for a short break in central London. We hope to be back in 2016 for out third visit!!!
This is my second time staying in this accommodation as I visited London earlier this year. Tara and Wendy exceeded my expectations again and the flat was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed for an 8 day visit.
I had my teenage daughter with me, and I felt very comfortable letting her go down Bermondsey street on her own to get coffee and breakfast in the morning. I also had the opportunity to have dinner at three of the restaurants within feet of the flat and they were all fabulous and unique. Overall, another amazing experience renting from these ladies.
Our stay at Tara's penthouse Bermondsey was outstanding from first contact to end of stay. Apartment was as described or better. Plenty of room for two couples beautiful terrace to relax on or have your morning coffee. Walking distance to all key attractions. Great bars and restaurants in area. Highly recommend and would definitely rebook.
Thank you Tara and Wendy for a really good week in the flat in Bermonsdey Street. Wendy was very welcoming when we arrived, the flat was just as described and the location is great; interesting street with lots of restaurants and pubs and under ten minutes' walk to London Bridge. Comfortable, clean and a bottle of cava - what more could one ask?!
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!

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!
