Entire flat/apartment, split over two floors and recently renovated. A 4 min walk from London Bridge station, great locations such as The Shard, The River Thames, Tower Bridge and Borough Market are on the doorstep. It's an amazing location!

The space

This is a lived in apartment but it will be fully vacated and cleared during the rental period. It is actually a 2 bedroom apartment but one room will be used for storage to reduce clutter and locked away. If you're interested in a two bedroom, it is possible for us to store items elsewhere, so please see separate listing.

The apartment is situated within a 1930s block, with a security gate at the entrance and shared balcony to door. Please note, it's on the second floor (so two flights of stairs) and there is no elevator. Parking for one vehicle can be arranged if you let us know in advance.

The flat has been recently renovated - we tried to stay true to the mid-century modern period so it's not super-contemporary inside, but we like it that way!

As the apartment is centrally located, there is occasional noise from passersby and traffic outside during the night.

Guest access

We'll leave clean bed linen and towels - shampoo and shower gel are also available, as well as tea and coffee and other condiments. Baby equipment can be left if necessary.

Interaction with guests

We will either greet guests ourselves - or a friend/member of family if we're already away.

Gemma and her partner made us feel very welcome right from the start, their place was great location and exactly what we needed whilst visiting friends in London. I would definitely recommend their home to friends travelling to London.

We had a great time in Gemma and Jack's place. It's in a great location and has easy access to public transportation (London Bridge station). It would be a perfect home base for a couple traveling in London. Borough Market being so near by is also an excellent plus!

Gemma's apartment was the place to stay for a few days in London. As a host, she was fantastic. She left some goodies upon our welcome for us to enjoy during our stay there. The location was absolutely brilliant and in the middle between London Bridge Station or Borough. This made it really convenient when travelling depending on which line you were on. Borough market is super close and has load of amazing food. It was easy to go there for breakfast before heading out each day. The apartment was really clean and the heating worked really well. All in all, a great place to stay and really well located.

My parents stayed at Gemma's while visiting me for a weekend and they really really enjoyed this place! The apartment is in a perfect position to go around London and it was perfectly clean at their arrival! Gemma left us instructions and advices to enjoy the neighborhood. I would definitely recommend it to everybody! Thank you!

We're a photographer and writer from London who like to ditch the London drizzle whenever possible to travel - particularly in the US. Our favourite thing about staying in an apartment rather than hotel (aside from the cost!) is that you get to see a side to cities/towns you might otherwise miss out on - living like a local and getting off the tourist track. Some of our favourite holidays experiences have been those recommended by Airbnb hosts so we know how much a good booking can impact on your overall trip.
