I am a photographer living in London.
its a boat, not a apartment, with all its pro and cons.
a nice atmosphere, even in winter easy to heat and it spreads a relaxed feeling. bed is nice and big in a small room, the livingroom is wonderful, the kitchen is nice, just missed an espresso thing and a toaster to be honest. i can recommend it easily, just be aware that tall people (like me) have few a bit of lack of headspace on the boat.
Perfect last night in London with Julian! The houseboat was charming as was Julian's company. Even though we were so close to the hustle and bustle of Battersea Bridge, the location was serene. I would definitely recommend for a different perspective on the city.
Julian is great, the boat is very cosy and the location superb. Everything works - big recommendations!
Great place to stay, very warm and cosy with good views on the balcony, and Julian's a really friendly, helpful host.
Great host, great space, great location. I stayed in some top places while I was in London, but this was definitely my favorite. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great stay Julian. The fire and conversation were tops.
We really enjoyed our stay at Julian´s houseboat. Great location and beautiful view. Julian is a very nice and friendly host, and he was excellent with communication through e-mail and helpful with reccomendations and advice. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone - would definitely stay again!
Julian is a pleasure to deal with and has a beautiful boat in a great location. The bed is warm and comfortable and our stay, though only one night, was perfect. We even forgot an item and Julian immediately contacted us and offered to post it to us at our next location. Super guy, unique location and great value for your money! If you want something that is posh, look elsewhere. If you want cozy and the unique experience of sleeping on the Thames, this is perfect!
Julian is a great host--as laid back and casual as his houseboat. The room I stayed in is a mariner's dream: just the right amount of space, a veritable cradle on the Thames. I sorely miss the quality of sleep I had in that room. As I write this, I'm already scheming on my next visit, so of course I'd stay there again.
This little place is definitely for the adventurous at heart, but if you are I can't think of a better way to stay in London. The location is great and the views are superb. Julian is a great and friendly host. The cabin I stayed in was small but perfectly adequate for a single person, the kitchen is functional, the shower hot and, unusually for this town, always with lots of pressure. I really loved my stay and plan to stay here again if I can.
C'était parfait ! On vit sur un bateau !!!
La petite chambre est parfaite avec un lit très confortable (pour une personne en tout cas), un petit chauffage d'appoint, une douche chaude avec bcp de pression.
Ce qui est fabuleux, c'est la vue et la proximité de tout en bus !
Julian est très sympa et très accueillant.
Je garde l'adresse en tout cas !
julian was delightful!. he was interesting, friendly, courteous, clean, tidy and super chilled (perhaps why he held off booking till he was on the eurostar over :D). i'd definitely recommend him as a guest.
