About This Listing
Experience London from a luxurious penthouse only minutes away from Tower Bridge.
Hands up if you want to star in your very own movie ? At Baltimore Wharf, every moment could come straight from the set of an action film. Deliciously sexy and stirringly stylish, here's a home that would suit everyone from Bourne to Bond.
The views from the inside and from the 2,900 sq ft roof terrace are extraordinary, so much so that your host sleeps with the curtains open, while the interiors are clean, crisp and bright. Outside, Canary Wharf twists and turns in a riot of glass and steel, while through it all, The Thames winds her stately way towards central London, only a few minutes away.
This contemporary double bedroom with en-suite marble bathroom with large shower is situated in this spectacular, iconic and ingenious Penthouse on the 9th floor - a harmonious blend of different textures and styles.
Reaching new heights of sophistication and elegance, the kitchen and bathrooms are generously proportioned, supremely well-designed and finished with a uncompromising eye to quality and detail.
The kitchen gleams with marble, stainless steel and chrome and is fitted with state-of-the-art appliances to the highest possible specifications.
This masterpiece developments also benefits from breathtaking views over the cut and thrust of Canary Wharf, The O2 Arena and the tranquility of Greenwich Park. It's living in a masterpiece of waterfront architecture, no more than five minutes away from the diversity, drive and dynamism of Canary Wharf, London's highest rising district. Everything you need is here : shops, bars, cafe's, restaurants and Club Baltimore, the most advanced - and the largest - fitness and health facility in London. But more than that, there's a great sense of neighbourhood in Baltimore Wharf, ready and waiting to welcome you home.
The DLR (Docklands Light Railway), one of London's great transport success stories, runs fast, frequent and efficient services to the North, South, East and West, so whatever your need is - to get out of town or straight into the centre - you couldn't be better placed.
Just a leisurely walk away, across the iconic South Quay footbridge, lies Canary Wharf, the beating heart of London's financial and business district. Here you'll find life in the fast lane, high-powered, high-pressured and high-rising.
With more than 100,000 people working hard in the business centre here, you'd expect them to be playing hard as well. Canary Wharf certainly rises to that challenge : there's a greater concentration of the best quality boutiques, shops, bars and restaurants in the malls here then you'll find in many cities worldwide.
Canary Wharf seems to have been beamed in from the next century, but there's history here too. You'll catch glimpses of the past in the evocative station names, the occasional cobbled corner, and the boats that puff up and down the river. You've shops, cafes, gorgeous restaurants and a cinema close by, and if you want to get into town, hop onto the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) at Crossharbour just outside the flat.
Guests have access to the large master bedroom with it's ensuite bathroom, the kitchen, lounge and the large 2,900 sq ft (250m2) roof terrace !

A fabulous penthouse in London!! We only booked last minute and Johan couldn't have been more helpful with ensuring our stay was a pleasant one. Although the host wasn't there his flat mates made us feel more than welcome. Fizz on arrival, amazing views and great location!!! It was our first time using airbnb and we will definitely be using it again :-)
A very nice welcome from Adrian at our arrival, late in the afternoon. we discovered an outstanding Penthouse with a breathtaking view on Canary warf's buildings, O2 Arena and Emirate Cable car: A very comfortable, clean, very well designed Penthouse.
Our stay was very nice. Thanks again to the advices from adrian, Wayne and Jackie.
Johan's penthouse is absolutely fabulous! It's a very modern and luxurious place with a massive terrace (an oasis of green on the 9th floor in central London) and stunning views over Canary Wharf, including the O2 Arena.
The flat was extremely clean and nicely decorated by Johan's PA Jacqui. Including flowers and everything!
The host even took me to the spa around the corner (where I spent an entire morning) and also invited me for lunch before I left, which was absolutely perfect. Johan is the most enjoyable host I have ever met and I would highly recommend this flat to anyone.
I will certainly come here again: perfect place, perfect hospitality!
Johan made sure everything was perfect and that I didn't need anything on the day of my arrival. Check-in and check-out was flexible which being an entrepreneur meant it did not impact my business activity in London.
The penthouse sits within an excellent residential complex (pleasant, safe and secure). Location-wise transport links are on your doorstep. You can get to Canary Wharf in minutes and anywhere central within half an hour.
The overall standard of this penthouse apartment surpasses your average 5-star hotel. In fact it is the ideal alternative to a hotel in Canary Wharf - better standard of living and better value for money.
The apartment was cleaned regualarly at agreed times. The flatmate during my stay was really nice and friendly (great hair).
It is definately an experience that I would strongly recommend.
The apartement is as on the pictures. The roommates of Johan are extremely friendly and helpful. Johan was not there, but the conversation with Johan by email was prompt and helpful. The area is quiet and well maintained. The connections with DRL-Train is only 18 minutes to London.
Johan's place is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in London, you can't never find anywhere with this price. Even if it sees from my Japanese eyes, the level of his place’s cleanliness is superb. There is everything you need. Well maintenance facilities, convenient transport, shops around the corner, additionally, a super genuine host, what else? He enjoys his guests' company, respecting their privacy. He is a quite considerate person. I also enjoyed a party he held. He made my feeling comfortable among his people. I want to keep his place as my secret though, I can't resist telling this experience to everyone. Again, thank you so much indeed for everything, Johan.
Johan is the perfect Air B&B host. He is able to anticipate his guests needs and everything you could wish is there when you arrive. He is generous and caring and really enjoys being a host--he is interested in his guests and it was a pleasure to meet a number of Johan's friends. The flat is very well situated and the comfort level is very high.
I can't imagine a hotel providing what Johan offers--and no hotel has his level of enthusiasm.
