  • We enjoyed our stay at Leanne's flat - the apartment was clean, well-furnished and as advertised. Leanne and her partner were very communicative and made it easy to get the key to the apartment and provided a lot of useful information about London and the neighborhood.

  • Leanne was absolutely fabulous before & during our stay. After we had booked her apartment, she answered many questions and inquiries from us. She had a wonderful PDF document that outlined the area, transportation, restaurants etc.

    The apartment was perfect for a weekend stay (we did not use the kitchen or other amenities).

    The only downside was that it is a little 'far' to commute to the center of London (ie. Parliament) - but it needs to be understood that London is a huge city, so it is to be expected. The nearest underground station is a 10 min walk, but the bus service is right outside the door. It just takes a little extra planning to get where you need to go.

    The apartment was very clear and comfortable.

    All in all, it was a great space for the weekend and a fabulous host who made it even better.
