A wonderful split level flat (aka maisonette/duplex) on a lovely, leafy street in what is quite simply the best location in London - Blackheath, a unique village within a metropolis.
The maisonette is south facing with a balcony.
Around the corner is the stunning Greenwich Park, which slopes downhill and into historic Greenwich, a gorgeous 18th - 19th century World Heritage town that is steeped in nautical history.
A very fast Thames river hydrofoil into London and the West End stops at the O2 Arena, The London Eye, The Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament and runs until 1 a.m.
The No. 53 bus runs 24 hours across London into and out of Victoria - making getting home after a night out a painless affair.
The property is also within an easy reach of many of the Olympic venues; Greenwich park ( Equestrian) North Greenwich Arena (Gymnastics, Basketball final) and The Royal Artiilery Barracks (Shooting) are all within walking distance. The Olympic park is accessible by public transport taking around 40 minutes from Blackheath station.
There really is nowhere quite like this. Please check out these links to get an idea of how wonderful this place is:

We really enjoyed our stay, the house was great, the host has been really nice to us, he is a very welcoming person.
The flat was clean. The appartment close to public transport, and 40 mins aways from the center of London.
We recommend this apt.
William was so helpful during our stay. He gave us a great personal guided suggestion with a hand drawn map. He was very friendly and so were his friends; William even ordered us pizza! The location was pretty hard to find- we didn't know it's in the back, behind the building on the 3rd floor. The room was also very damp with mold on the ways but he mentioned he was in the process of doing repairs. Thank you for hosting us!
Great guy! William helped us out in a fix. We fully recommend this host :o)
William was a lovely host, he met us, explained how everything works in the house. The room itself is alright, it is tidy and clean, however, unfortunately it was very cold for us in the house as the heating appeared to be off all the time. As a result both me andmy boyfriend caught a cold :( to be fair though, we never asked to turn the heating on...
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
