I'm a Canadian that has lived in London for 17 years. I work for a private bank and am honest, straightforward and helpful (and very nice, of course, like all Canadians)

I can say the place was as described in the pictures. A very nice flat on two upper floors after entering the building.
The confirmation of booking was great, communication was pretty good, and transition to apartment was okay.
Overall great stay and good location for transitioning from Richmond UK to downtown London.
The stay meet the needs of 4 travelers. The small bedroom is tight and I used the dressers and closers to put luggage away. I might suggest if there were two adults in the small bedroom, one sleep on the couch and the other in the bed. The other room was spacious and well kept.
The living area and kitchen were great. Perfect for holding our groceries and supplies. Like hostels people leave extra goods like spices and oils for others to use. The kitchen was great as there was a stove (utensils and supplies to cook), refrigerator, washer (clothes), sink in this space (dryer one floor down across from the bedrooms(small).
The living area was quite large and we were able to sit and talk comfortably in the space with each other and a few friends who stopped by to visit.
There were directions on the table to give guests the details on how things work in the space which was good, however, I would have liked to meet the owner as we were here for an extended stay, but it did not work out! The other slight problem was that the oven did not work. When we inquired about the oven early during our stay, Jonathan was prompt in his reply, however, the suggested solution did not work. It would have been nice for him to a. Come and show us how it works (we tried the suggested way to no avail) or b. Send a service tech to inspect it.
FYI it would be good to share that the space is not accessible and that the toilet area and shower are small. Larger individuals would have a tough time using the toilets. Individuals with disability might have trouble navigating three flights of stairs.
All in all it was a good place to stay and would suggest to others. The area and community are amazing and I would come back and rent the space again!!
We had a great time staying in this flat! The location made everything very easy. The flat itself was great for the kids and we were very comfortable and relaxed in the space.
Perfect location in Richmond, London. Great apartment which suited our needs perfectly (3 adults and a toddler). Jonathan was very communicative and helpful throughout the booking process and also followed-up at the end of our trip to see how things went. Check-in process was also seamless. Will rent again next time I am staying in the area.
This 2 bedroom flat in Richmond is in a fabulous location and easy walking distance to many amenities and sights including the scenic River Thames. A drawback to this flat, if you're staying longer than a day or two, is the bathroom that is in a former closet. It is functional with a very small wash basin, toilet and shower/bath, but not a hassle free experience at all with no counter space. Unfortunately the flat was not clean either. The main bedroom was comfortable and clean but the stairwell, bathroom and kitchen had clearly not been properly cleaned making the whole experience less than desirable. Additionally, the hot water and space heating controls were completely inaccessible. Overall, the accommodation was functional and in a great location, but not the smooth and delightful experience we had anticipated.
Fantastic apartment. Perfect location ... Minutes to tube and river. Excellent dining recommendations and spot on with the local coffee shop. The apartment is spacious. Kitchen stocked with all essentials and available to use. A bonus! Highly recommend!
Un accueil amical de la part de Jonathan, qui est très aimable. L'appartement est vaste, mais le ménage n'avait pas été fait depuis longtemps, nous avons du relaver la vaisselle avant de pouvoir l'utiliser... Le simple vitrage rend l'appartement plutôt bruyant, notamment le soir à cause du pub situé en bas, et des avions d'Heathrow certains jours. Cependant, l'allée est tellement jolie, et le quartier est tellement formidable (la Tamise, les pubs, les magasins, la station de métro toute proche...) que nous avons passé un très bon séjour. Je recommande !
We were made to feel welcome immediately upon arrival. We were met at the door and given a tour of the flat. The space worked well for the four of us, while we were on holiday to visit our son attending Richmond University. It was close to the college as well as being central to the area. We definitely would recommend this flat to anyone that would like to stay in Richmond.
We found Jonathan's place easily. Like others said it is located perfectly in a quiet street and close to everything, literally 2 min walk from the tube. There is a pub on the street but we could only hear it on Saturday night. The place itself is specious and we could host other people in the living room. We had a slight problem with the heating but Jonathan was higly efficient in solving it, he explained us what to do to fix it, called his plumber to make sure it won't happen again and compensated us for that. We reccomend both Jonathan and his apartment.
This flat is in a great location! Close to the supermarket, tube and the river. Jonathan was a great host he was very friendly and helpful. We stayed 5 weeks and absolutely loved it.
Great apartment in a great place. Jon made us feel very welcome in his apartment with their messages and recommendations, not only before the trip, but even when we were there, worrying whether we were comfortable.
Very close to the station to reach central London, and near the river for long walks or ride a bicycle in Richmond.
A memorable stay for all the family.
Even if was just for a one night stay Jon was very friendly and we had great discussions with a nice glass of white wine. Very well presented and smart Jon was a very good guest. I hope to stay in touch with him as we are neighbours.
