Heater and hot water system doesnt work on the day we arrive. Took us many hours for waiting until it fixed. All of my friends havnt shower for whole day.
Owen really made us feel welcome when we first arrived and throughout our stay. The 2 bed 2 bath suite in which we stayed for week between X-mas and New Year looked exactly like they looked in photos. Lower Marsh Road is a "gem" and (unbeknownst to us until end of our trip) Prince Charles agrees as he had toured and touted the street (due to plethora of unique stores such as vintage Radio Days and book and jewelry stores) earlier in 2014. We loved the location of the Lower Marsh Road apartment, as it was less than 5 minute walk to Waterloo Station's three (3) Underground lines and Southwest Overland Rail service to Hampton Court and hundreds of other places not served by Underground. We were only roughly (a) 1 minute walk to Old Vic, (b) 2 minute walk to a good number of quality reasonably priced restaurants with Turkish, Chinese, English, Italian, Indian, and Cuban cuisines, (c) 5 minute walk to London Eye, (d) 10 minute walk to bridge to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Parliament and (e) 20 minute walk to Churchill's War Rooms and (f) 30 minute or so walk to Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and parts of "theatreland".
Finally, I thank Owen for helping us by coordinating delivery with the Mail Boxes Etc. franchise located less than 50 meters from apartment) the one piece of luggage (with clothes and shoes inside) we inadvertently left in our rush to get to airport.
P E R F E C T!
I really don´t have another word to describe how amazing was the days with my family in London. The apartment is exactly like the photos, very comfortable (for six), calm, clean and organized. It is located near Waterloo station and few minutes (by foot) from touristic places. I recommended!We love it!!
The apartment was amazing! it was close to Waterloo station which made everything convenient. It was very spacious and it was in a prime location! (Near the Big Ben & the London Eye). Owen personally showed how to use the appliances and everything. Looking forward to coming back to London!
All good.. great location, friendly meet and greet.
Great location close to London's attractions! Good value for money when traveling in a group.
My honest review...Pros and Cons
Location is great. It is very close to the Southbank, Big Ben, London Eye. It's all within a 10 minute walk.
Price was pretty good considering that it has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a kitchen (although we didn't use it much) and a living room.
Location. It is on a street that has a lot of foot traffic well into the late hours of the night and very noisy. There are a lot of bars nearby and people can be heard as they leave the bars at 1am as if they were inside the apartment.
Neighbors upstairs (which I believe live there, not renters) are VERY noisy. They have a small child and the stomping around can be heard late into the evening (11pm) and as early as 5-6 am. This coupled with the fact that the building is old and the insulation is virtually non-existent means you better be a heavy sleeper. You will hear constant creaking and stomping from upstairs.
No air conditioning. Man this place needs it. It was quite warm in the apartment and this meant we had no choice but to leave the windows wide open. This didn't help too much and made the noise from outside even worse.
The hallway leading to the apartment is very dirty. Luckily the apartment is not so bad however it could use fresh paint and a better cleaning job.
Overall the advertisement is pretty accurate but I don't think I'd stay again. I'm more of a hotel person and if you are as well, lower your standards before coming here. You will pay more for a hotel but you will sleep better and it will be more comfortable. We booked this room but were put in apartment A which is on the first floor. Not sure if C would have been better or not.
Owen was a nice host in the limited amount of contact we had with him.
My family had a very good stay at Owen's place. He was a great host. The apartment was exactly as described and the location was really good, close to Waterloo Station and London Eye! Thanks Owen for the amazing time my family had in London!
Great appartment where we stayed 2 nights to enjoy London. Great location and Owen is very kind.
Little miscommunication et arrival as there 2 different telephone nombre, but it has been solved quickly
En choisissant le quartier de Waterloo, je pensais pratique pour la proximité de la gare mais nous avons été agréablement surpris par cette rue sympathique.
Owen est effectivement expéditif mais comme nous étions pressé c'était très bien.
Logement agréable et les 2 salles de bain ont été appréciées !
Cuisine bien équipée.
