We just enjoyed 2 weeks at St. Katherine Docks in London. Fantastic location, peaceful surroundings with close access to delightful restaurants & cafes, along with immediate access to Britain's #1 grocery store. A short walk to the Tube means all of London is just a quick ride away. The apartment has everything a couple or small family could need: washer/dryer, dishwasher, shower/bath combo, beautiful view (lit at night!) of the Tower Bridge & the Shard. The view of the marina with its barges, ships, & yachts is quiet & restful in the midst of big city bustle. Choosing David's rental made our trip!
The location is fantastic -- a beautiful view (as advertised) of the boats at St Katherine Dock, plus the Shard and Tower Bridge. Easy walks to public transportation (bus, tube, and DLR), the Thames, the Tower and Tower Bridge. I liked how easy it was to get to everything in central London without being in the middle of the bustle. It's also very convenient to the interesting, less touristed neighborhoods of Wapping, Shadwell, and Limehouse. The flat is in a secure building and the area feels very safe. There's a well-equipped kitchen and a full-size Waitrose grocery store right across the street. Check-in and check-out went very smoothly. Simon's co-host David met me when I arrived and was easy to communicate with throughout the stay. I would definitely consider staying here again the next time I'm in London.
Booked this flat for my parents who were visiting (as I live nearby). They raved about it - clean, comfortable, bright and in an amazing location. They've already asked if I could book it for them again when they next visit. Really highly recommended.
David, Thank you for making my trip to London so special. Your flat is in an ideal location in close proximity to the metro, across the street to waitrose market, and a number of delicious restaurants and cafés (mulberries cafe, Emilia's, bravas) . Not to mention steps away from the major attractions like London tower and the tower bridge.
Your flat is bathed in light throughout the day with fantastic views of the docks and the shard (night view is pretty spectacular too). Hearing the birds in the still of morning made me feel I was tucked away in a sweet oasis when only two blocks away a brood of tourists and businessman are hustling through the city. What are those elegant birds that eat from the floating dock with their beautiful, sweet pitch cry?
The flat is spacious, very clean and has everything one needs during travels. I am especially grateful for the long bathtub for my post marathon soak and the balcony overlooking the water during morning coffee (and afternoon beers).
You were very patient and responsive during our correspondence and it was greatly appreciated.
My only regret is I didn't just stay the full run of my London visit, but I know when I return to London you are my first call.
Can't recommend your flat enough.
