About This Listing
A wonderful split level apartment on a leafy street in Blackheath, a unique and historic village within the metropolis. The Blackheath and Royal Greenwich area is a holiday destination in itself with so much to see and do.
Well connected by bus and rail; Central London can be reached within 30 minutes. There is also a fast river ferry (the Thames Clipper) which stops at the O2 Arena, The London Eye, Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament
The No. 53 bus runs 24 hours into and out of Central London making getting home after a night out a painless affair.
We are on a hilltop with Greenwich Park, home to the Royal Greenwich Observatory (Greenwich Mean Time – GMT and 0 degrees latitude), overlooking the river. The observatory offers the best panoramic view of London possible and the park itself is absolutely stunning
The world heritage Greenwich village is a picturesque town steeped in Royal Navy history and architecture including the magnificent and historic Cutty Sark clipper ship as its centre piece. There is also a fabulous crafts market with the best street food from all over the world available
Altogether there really is nowhere quite like this. It’s the best part of London. Please check out these links to get an idea of how wonderful this place is:
Kitchen, bathroom and living room if they wish
Interaction with Guests
Guests are free to come and go as they please. I live here so there are often times when we will meet. I work during the week so this would only be early in the morning or in the evening when I'm indoors. The rest of the time you would have the place to yourselves
Blackheath is a beautiful village within the heart of the metropolis. Greenwich Park is the most wonderful park in the world and Greenwich village is historic and charming
Rail and bus services connect with the city centre within 30 minutes, which is very good for London
No smoking indoors; there is a balcony where you can smoke.
No shoes indoors

Very comfortable place to stay and the host is friendly too!
Great host really made me feel at home and ideally located for what I needed. Would stay again.
We felt really confortable, WIlliam is a very nice guy, I'm just sorry we couldn't chat more. And I really enjoyed the place, far from the traffic of the city, but near to such a beautiful places. Really recomendable!
Highly recommend William (Bill). He is a wonderful host and his place is awesome. We felt right at home. Clean and plenty of space. Located to many London sights via the bus and Tube. Bill offers as much info as you like about where to go based on what you want to see. Friendly, engaging and respectful of your private time. A great communicator when we had been unexpectedly delayed arriving. He greeted us with a smile late at night and showed us around his flat. Would stay there again when ever in London.
Great location, great host, i will come back here next time
About the Host, William
I'm a bit of a maverick by nature; I like to keep on the move. You only live twice and I intend to enjoy it to the max. I work in IT and am developing a parallel career in portrait photography.
I enjoy travelling; Istanbul and Brasil are next on my list of targets. I am also an accomplished Aquanaut (SCUBA diver).
I speak a little Italian, I enjoy cooking foods from around the world.
I am a big movie fan, I love Playstation and I am a big Liverpool Football Club fan

Wonderful Georgian architecture at its best. The highlight is The Painted Hall where Admiral Lord Nelson was laid to rest after Trafalgar. It rivals The Cistine Chaple for its power and beauty
