We are Jennifer and Greg, a married couple with two young children. We've lived in London all our lives, and are passionate about our wonderful city, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
Greg is a Black Taxi Driver, so what he doesn't know about London isn't worth knowing! We are of course happy to offer any advice you may want regarding your stay in London.
You will want for nothing if you stay here - there is space to unwind after a day of sight-seeing, a fabulous kitchen if you want to cook for yourself, a communal garden overlooking the Limehouse Cut canal if you want a picnic; and beds are excellent quality so you're bound to get a good nights sleep!
Of course all linen (cotton) and towels are provided.
The flat will very easily accomodate 8 people, without feeling you're on top of each other or cramped. It is perfect for a business trip, a family or a group of friends.
Any other questions please do ask.
The flat is in a quiet private residential square,so please - no parties or loud music, and we're sorry, we can't accomodate hen or stag parties.

The flat and the neighbourhood was exactly like the description. If you want to have a good night it's a good place in london as it's quiet and the bed are okay.
The welcome was good and Jennifer was really convenient .
Everything was really clean, and the breakfast was there :)
If I need to go back in London and I need a flat at this location I would go again for it for sure!
Comfortable and relaxed stay. Everything we needed was available and ready to use. Beautiful apartment. Would highly recommend.
The host was very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was ideal for what we required and great value of money. The location was perfect for our event in the excel arena. Thank you for our stay!
We stayed at Jennifer's for 4 nights, and renting this appartment was perfect for our group! Jennifer's husband picked us up at the underground station so we would not have to try to find it on our own after a 12 hours travel. It is a really nice and cozy appartment and we felt like home right away. Everything was organized to give us the best stay. We got good information before we went. The street and the building was quiet. We did not miss anything, and we had a really great time! Thanks to Jennifer and her family for haveing us!
Thanks for a great stay we really enjoyed your hospitality and loved your place and assistance. Good access to conference and ideal with people who were travelling so all in all highly recommend staying.
The appartment was very clean, nice and bigger than I expected. Good beds, nice bathroom, actually all very nice. Very friendly owners. Area is well located, although the area itself is not the most interesting one. I would book this place again and definetily recommend it for a stay with a group.
Thanks Jennifer and Greg for letting us stay in your lovely apartment. It worked perfectly for our party of six people.
Walking distans to restaurants and shopping in Canary Wharf and if you like to go down town London for shopping just catch the DLR to Bank and change to the Underground.
The hosts was really friendly and most accommodating.
We would love to come back!
We are Londoners through and through and feel passionate about our wonderful home city!
We live in east London in a fabulous and huge apartment and we would love to welcome you to our home and give you some tips on how to make the most of the city.
