“great holidays in london also due to our wonderful accomodation”
Reviewed 20 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Our children had school holidays in autumn for the first time so we decided to use this opportunity to visit London. 4 people in a small hotel room isn`t a very inviting imagination, so we decided to rent an appartement. And we had big luck!!! Via Internet we discovered this appartement and it was 100% the right place for us: generous, bright, modern, clean, very well equipped and that all for a very good price. A great part of our enjouable holidays was thanks to this wonderful appartement, where we could relax after exhausting sightseeing tours. We always had the feeling to come back home after straying around the streets of London. Many thanks to Gillian, kind regards Ulli

“Tranquil location with city lights. A home away from home.”
Reviewed 20 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This is a fabulous apartment and such a refreshing option for a stay in London.
The first thing you notice walking into the apartment is that this apartment is really as gorgeous as it appears in the photos - and better still is it is fully furnished with everything that you could want to make your stay feel like your at home. It is spotlessly clean and tidy.
The kitchen is great and contains all that you may need to cook for yourself if you choose - and you can enjoy the wonderful view of London's new financial district (Canary Wharf) while doing so.
The bedrooms are very stylish and comfortable; we all slept very soundly.
Gillian has thought of everything in presenting this property and that is why it felt so homely. For example, there is a folder that contains the user manuals so all the appliances in the apartment. This was particularly useful when using the washing/dryer machine. Also she has left detailed instructions about how to lock the balcony doors (we were scratching our heads on this one and about to give her an SOS call until we sat down and read her welcome folder).
We accessed both the DLR and Canary Wharf tube stations depending on our plans for the day. It was a 8-10mins walk from Blackwall DLR (was easy to do with suitcases as the DLR has a lift and there were no stairs until you get to the apartment) and Canary Wharf was less that 15 mins (although you could visit Waitrose on your way back to the apartment).
It is worth the walk to return to such a perfect place at the end of the day. We can't recommend this apartment highly enough.

“Colored Lights of Canary Wharf”
Reviewed 14 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed in Gillian's lovely apartment in early Sept. for 8 nights. The pictures look exactly like the apartment, cute, clean and a gorgeous view to enjoy after a long day of touring. It is a bit far from the Canary Wharf tube if you have little ones (15 minutes walking), but perfect for us as we enjoyed the nightly walk through the buildings and lights. Canary Wharf has everything you need: groceries, Starbucks, quick lunch spots (Birley's), and bank machines from Barclays for cash.
A beautiful old Pub is a block away which we enjoyed twice, once for Pub food and once for a nice dinner.
Gillian was most helpful and gave directions to get us settled in. She also helped us arrange a car service for pick-up at Heathrow because the apartment is on the far side of London. The only real problem we had was wireless internet with BTF (we didn't have a UK phone so internet needed to be our connection) who overcharged me. I wrote to Gillian and right away she gave me a contact number for help, meanwhile I heard from BTF and they refunded the overcharge. We found McDonalds a couple of blocks away was our best source for getting on line quickly so we stopped there daily for breakfast or a drink on our way home.
Beds were so comfortable, and once we figured out the shower system for adjustment, good showers were had by all. All four of us never did figure out how to get our clothes out of the dryer system (I guess they need to cool first), so we hung a make-shift clothes line which worked fine. All in all we would definitely recommend her apartment to those who don't mind walking. (There is a DLR a bit closer, but we found as an out-of-towner, taking the Jubilee line at Canary Wharf was easier for us and more direct.)
Upon check in, Gillian had a full fruit basket and cookie jar waiting for us, and had the basics in the kitchen as well as cleaning products.
If you are looking for clean apartment with a gorgeous view this is the place for you.

What a lovely, informative review. Thank you so much and I'm delighted that you all had a good holiday.
I will be installing WiFi internet next year, which will probably come with a landline phone with an honesty box for those who don't have UK compatible mobiles phones.
