Hi, I'm Sara. I'm a 29 year old banker and have just got introduced to airbnb!
Sarika was incredibly welcoming into her home and really went to great lengths to settle me in. I enjoyed meeting the other housemates. The room itself is spotless and very comfortable. Really well located for Canary Wharf via the Thames Clipper. No hesitation in staying again (if she will have me!)
Sarika was a great host! I would definitely recommend her room to anyone who's looking for a quiet stay. The pier is literally seconds from the house and provides stunning views and superb walks. If you work at the Canary Wharf then you can take clipper which takes only 5 minutes.
When I arrived at the house I felt instantly at home. The room itself is tidy and comfortable. I found she had left chocolates and bottled water to make the stay even more comfortable.
All in all, a great host that I would recommend to anyone.
Sara is totally lovely. A really warm and genuine host who went out of her way to make me feel as welcome as possible. She frequently offered me tea/coffee, always asked about my day and even went so far as to invite me on a group outing to the cinema (with her flatmates). In fact, I'd go so far as to say that meeting her was the highlight of my stay and the exact reason I enjoy using Airbnb so much!
Her flat is filled with a wonderfully eclectic group of people - from bankers to other travellers (all of whom are lovely) and there is a really nice homely vibe that makes this place a real pleasure to come home to.
The location is fantastic - a stones' throw from the river (which is simply gorgeous first thing in the morning), there is also a local gym, shopping centre (surrey quays) and a 24hr Tescos within a 10 minute walk which make this an ideal location. Canary wharf is only 10 minutes away via the underground and it takes less then 25 minutes to get into the centre of london. (n.b. there is a bus that goes straight to her front door which makes nights out a lot easier)
I am really happy I chose to stay with Sara and would do so again in a heartbeat - two thumbs (or 5 stars) way up!
Sarika was a great host, made me feel very welcome and ensured that i had a great time during my stay :)
