About this listing
Your home away from home...
FLAT WITH BALCONY COVENT GARDEN -
OUR TWO BEDROOM FLAT- is a very modern fully furnished flat with design pieces, plasma TV and Blue ray dvd, sound system, a spacious living room with plenty of natural light connected to a balcony with lovely plants facing a private court yard The CHING COURT YARD with cherry trees, flowers and birds.
THE BEDROOMS are very cosy, hard wood floor, double glazing windows and a double bed with fitted goose feather mattress cover, king size feather pillows, the finest pure cotton bed linen and fresh soft bath towels. And spacious wardrobe with drawers.
THE LOCATION - It is absolute fabulous, just 2 mins walk from the main Tube stations such as COVENT GARDEN AND LEICESTER SQUARE which are both convenient especially when one travels from any HEATHROW TERMINALS avoiding extra taxi fares. We are in the heart of Theatre land, and all the restaurants and museums of London's West End are a short stroll away. Seven Dials is now the premier shopping area of Covent Garden with plenty of unique boutiques. The location is ideal for people who love the theatre and the other arts!
THE HOSTS: Marcus and Rick both work in the theatre and cinema. We are a well travelled couple and enjoy meeting new people. Marcus speaks Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish. We love sharing London with all it has to offer.
This is a wonderful place to have a few friends over for a nice dinner or a couple of drinks.
No Smoking and no shoes indoor as we try to keep the place fresh and clean at all times.
The nearby Mercer and Covent Garden hotels charge hundreds of pounds a night for this location in the heart of the West End, and we think it is much nicer to be in a home away from home in the same place!
NOTE THAT CHECK IN IS FROM 2PM TILL 9PM IF YOU ARRIVE LATE THAN 9PM A £40 FEE WILL BE REQUESTED FOR WAITING AS WE WILL HAVE TO PAY SOMEBODY TO LET YOU IN THE APARTMENT.
We welcome our guests and treat them as friends with mutual respect and expect the same from them. NO SMOKING.
As this is a family building we keep noise levels at a minimum trying not to disturbe our neighbours. No shoes inside the house. No music or noises after 11pm. For security the front street door is double locked and all guests need to do this upon entering and exiting the building.
Marcus and Rick were excellent hosts. Very responsive from the time of booking all the way through to any questions or requests that we had along the way. Incredibly helpful theatre advice and assistance with tickets too! Check in was easy and the flat is in the most sublime location. Walking distance to most major attractions and to all forms of public transport...but being based so close to everything Covent Garden has to offer was the best part. Great cafes, restaurants, shopping, pubs and the theatres! Even though you are close to all the action, the flat is a surprise little haven of peace. Just wonderful. With good sized rooms, comfortable beds and a homely feel - everything you need is in this apartment.
Can't say enough about the apartment, location, and the smoothness of checking in and out. Was our first Airbnb experience and apartment was exactly as advertised, clean, fairly spacious, and very comfortable. The welcome we received on arrival and the tips provided made this a great experience - staying here absolutely made our trip to London. Thank you Marcus!
La ubicación y el departamento son excelentes. Cuenta con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días inolvidables. También Marcus nos envió un chofer para recogernos en el aeropuerto. Seguramente volveremos disfrutar de una ciudad alucinante y el hermoso piso de Marcus.

Perfect spot for a family long weekend in London, great facilities, an apartment with real character, kids loved sitting in their bedroom and watching the cast of 'Matilda' leaving the stage door and signing autographs down on the street below. Lots of great places to eat nearby and good access to public transport. A fantastic way to live like a local in a special part pf London.
This was our second stay in this lovely flat, and we were delighted to be back.
The location could not be better. You can walk to so many of the attractions, theatres, restaurants and shops, and can easily catch a bus or tube to any further flung location.
The flat itself has everything you need, and is beautifully decorated. From the bedrooms and kitchen you can watch all the comings and goings along the streets and around Seven Dials, and from the sitting room you look out on a flowery balcony and peaceful courtyard.
We didn't see Marcus on this occasion, nor need to contact anyone for assistance with anything, but collecting and returning the keys went very smoothly, and we had no problems during our stay.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your fantastic flat again, Marcus and Rick! We had been looking forward to returning all year and had a wonderful time.
Marcus, did a great job of communicating and having the place set up for us. Great place, location and will definitely recommend this place to everyone we know visiting London. Very convenient to everything...transportation, shopping, food etc.

About the Host, Marcus
I am a well travelled independent film maker who works from home in London. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and some French. I enjoy meeting new people and look forward to making your acquaintance. I worked for more than 7 yrs for the Ritz Carlton Hotel so high standard hospitality is nothing new to myself. As you will see from our reviews we are very selective in choosing our guests as we offer them the best in terms of location, comfort and security and value for their money. Welcome to our apartments in London.
