About This Listing
Your own stylish pad close to the South Bank, Borough Market, Tate Modern, St Paul's Cathedral and The Shard - with excellent transport to the financial centre and West End.
Want to stay somewhere just minutes to Borough Market, Tate Modern, St Paul's, Shakespeare's Globe and the city's cultural hub at the South Bank? No sweat! All of these are on the doorstep, plus excellent public transport connections (Borough Tube 5 mins, Southwark Tube 7 mins) to the rest of the capital. It's less than 15 mins to Piccadilly Circus, Westminster, Trafalgar Square, St Paul's, the British Museum and all that!
The apartment is ranged over 3 floors with kitchen/diner on the 1st, master bedroom & bathroom on the 2nd and bedroom-cum-study (sleeps two on a sofabed and a further single sofabed) and roof terrace on the top. We like mid-century furniture, and the overall look is spacious and clean (though normal wear and tear on the paintwork!) with a few feature items. All mod cons.
So come, stay in style and experience the best of cultural and gastronomic London on the doorstep.
NB We won't be staying when you are, and nor will our small short-haired dog.
Use the place as your own.
Interaction with Guests
We'll welcome you, answer any questions you have and then leave you to enjoy your stay. Of course you'll have our numbers in case you need to call.
Dive into history, culture, art, food and architecture right on the doorstep. Even though it's right in the heart of London, Borough is a quiet, easygoing area.
You're spoiled for transport - there are 3 underground stations within easy walking distance!
Southwark tube - Jubilee line
Borough tube - Northern line
Elephant and Castle tube - Bakerloo line
You've also got quick access to Waterloo and London Bridge on foot and Liverpool Street by direct bus (route 344).
The main thing is to enjoy yourself!
If something unexpected happens or you need something that most households have (and can't find it), please don't hesitate to call us straight away. We'll be happy to help.
The only truly vital rule is not to lock yourselves out! And to leave the keys when you check out.
The moment we arrived, we were welcomed by Kieron and felt immediately at home: there were flowers, groceries, and a very friendly host showing us around. The flat is cosy and the little rooftop terrace is ideal for breakfast on a sunny day. With the tube close by, the apartment was idealy located. We had a lovely stay!
Kieron was a delightful host - he met us during checkin and checkout to make sure we are all good. He also bought us some food items on check in. Had a couple of emails prior to check-in and Kieron answered them all - extremely helpful! He was easy to talk to and seemed easy-going.
The apartment was as listed as the listing. Relatively quiet neighbourhood but walking access to a number of attractions. There's a Co-op and Tesco nearby. My family loved the apartment and we had a very good stay.
We absolutely loved the flat. It was in a nice neighborhood, had a great view, and was only minutes away from exciting Borough Market. It was also a short walk to popular sightseeing locations and a couple underground stations allowing for easy and quick traveling through London. There is also a nice pub, supermarket, and restaurants within a 5 minute walk.
The flat was very clean and exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was available and if we had questions he was more than willing to answer. We definitely recommend staying here.
A quite comfortable, spacious, well-fitted and convenient flat for the two weeks we spent in London. It is well located in a pleasant district (10 minutes walk from the River Thames and not far from the touristic center of London and close to everything (supermarkets, restaurants, tube and buses stations). The appartment is modern and tidy just like the pictures.
Kieron and Joe were very pleasant hosts. Should they come in France we would enjoy welcoming them at home.
We received all the information we needed to make our stay comfortable.
Just a little hitch : the two beds in the room on the 2nd floor are not too comfortable.
Apart from this little inconvenience, we do recommend Kieron's flat.
Thanks Kieron and Joe for helping us having spent a very good stay.

my daughter and I had a wonderful 7 week stay at kieron's flat. well furnished and layed out over 3 floors, it offers all that could be required for a comfortable stay. kieron is an excellent host. the neighborhood has a variety of restaurants and markets and is very convenient to Borough Market, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern and The City. There are an array of bus lines that connect easily with tha rest of London. I can highly recommend this rental. thanks kieron!
Our family of 3 enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Holiday at Kieron and Jo's apartment. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos provided on the site. The beds are very comfortable and our teenage daughter loved having the third floor all to herself!
Communication and responses from Kieron were excellent before and after the booking.
We really liked the location of the apartment, both for the fact that it was quiet at night for sleeping, but with easy walking access to many sites,activities and amenities, as well as to several subway stations.
It is easy to prepare meals at the apartment since it is so well equipped including all your spices, and basic condiments.
Our favourite sites within an easy 10 minute walk included: The Southwark Cathedral (The Christmas morning Choral Eucharist was wonderful, but it is worth a visit just for the architecture and design), Borough Market (take in the sites and sounds and do your shopping), the Globe Theatre (even if no plays are on, the museum and tour are a must!).
If you are planning a visit, avoid the business of Leicester Square, and take in a play at the Old Vic Theatre - just over a 10 minute walk away - it features some of the best plays/actors available and is the oldest working theatre in London.
One feature that we loved was the BBC digital radios throughout the apartment. We are public radio buffs, so for us this was particularly nice.
We would love to return to this apartment during another visit to London, and would not hesitate to recommend it to your friends.
You couldn't ask for a better host or a better apartment. Communication with Keiron was wonderful and he was always super helpful and very kind. The apartment is in a very handy location and is just as described in the listing. It was very clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
About the Host, Kieron
Web editor, amateur writer, photographer, theatre-goer and general enthusiast for everything! I love London, and having lived all over the city I can't imagine a better place than Borough to base myself if I was visiting for pleasure, on a work trip or wanted to hook up with friends.
