“Colored Lights of Canary Wharf”
Reviewed 13 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.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed 8 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We really enjoyed staying in this apartment, the location by the waterfront was lovely, very peaceful and calm after the bustle of central london during the day. The DLR was a 5 minute walk through the docks, and was only about 15mins into Bank and all main tube lines. The apartment itself had everything we needed, was very clean and modern. Gillian made us feel very welcome and having basic stocks of tea/coffee etc available was very handy.

We would definately recommend and stay here again.

“We expeienced a very peaceful and relaxing stay in busy Lonon”
Reviewed 13 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We appreciated the hospitality and helpfulness of the owner. Our favorite thing was to sit outside on the balcony and admire the amazing water and urban architecture views as we sipped our morning coffee and evening wine. Great retreat from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to London attractions. In a word, wonderful!
