About this listing
This is a ground floor warehouse apartment with is own private entrance and is industrial steampunk at its coolest but most comfortable. You have complete privacy during your stay. Tucked behind a gated Georgian House so is a very quiet spot. It is a central location 1.2 miles from Oval Tube and 1.5 miles from Elephant and Castle Tube. The vibrant South Bank on the River Thames is in walking distance. There are two kids sleeping pods in the flat and a BBQ in the communal courtyard.
This warehouse has had a colourful history. In its previous life it has been used as a book factory, an illegal club and a repair shop for serviceman uniforms in the Second World War. The sleeping area in this flat used to be the ink storage room. We have fitted a sun tunnel in the old explosion shoot !
This is one half of a warehouse apartment that has its own private entrance and own kitchenette, shower-room and living room. It has just been renovated to a high standard with a bespoke copper kitchenette and copper paneling on the sliding bathroom door. There are two kids sleeping pods/zones: one above the double bed which is single bed suitable for a person under 5ft 6 inches (170cm). The bunk bed has a remote control LED light set round it's ceiling. The other is a sleeping zone under the stairs which we have called the Harry Potter Cupboard complete with all the Harry Potter books movies and games for your kids to read and play while snuggled in there. This is essentially the space under the stairs but our 7 year old happily sleeps there.
The kitchenette is stocked with various teas, coffee, sugar, milk and other basics for you to use. The bedding and towels are super comfortable and there is organic shampoo, conditioner and shower gel supplied in the shower.
The Ink rooms are at the rear on the ground floor of a 2 storey warehouse. It is hidden from view from the street behind an elegant Georgian house. You enter the first courtyard using a code and collect your keys from the Vintage London Phone box. A second locked door takes you though to the communal courtyard where there is a BBQ which you are welcome to use during your stay. Continue through the BBQ area and the ink room is located at the end of the ground floor exterior corridor and is the second door on right. It is very quiet at nights which is a rarity in London!
Please leave the keys back in the key safe after your stay.
Please don't wear shoes in the flat as they can mark the painted floors. Thank you.

Due to people constantly not checking out on time and causing huge problems for my cleaning to get the flat ready for the next guests I have had to introduce a £50 fine for those that check out late without prior consent from me.
