I was born in Auckland New Zealand, educated at Auckland University. married a Londoner, settled for 30 years in the Manning Valley NSW Australia, taught senior English at Taree College of TAFE.

Jennifer purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Jennifer chose London

I inherited the property from my mother, bless her....and I love it because she lived here 28 years...it is south facing and sunny...you can lie in bed and not see a building when you look out the window

What makes this apartment unique

good bus services to major attractions nearby, walking distance to Houses of Parliament, London Eye and Tate Britain.

this apartment is overlooks a park, it is quiet and well located for Westminster and West End theatres and galleries

Another Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Chez Guinevere! This was our second visit...and definitely not our last...in this most perfect flat. The location is ideal and it has everything anyone would need for a comfortable stay in this amazing city. Jennifer is a most informative and gracious host and has recommended excellent places that most of us would miss. We will return and would absolutely recommend it!

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We loved this two bedroomed flat and have already booked it for our week's holiday in London next year.

The location is marvellously central - a very short walk brings you to the Albert embankment and its great views across the Thames, of Big Ben and the houses of Parliament. Every morning we walked across Westminster Bridge to begin our day. So lovely not to have to spend time travelling into central London.

The flat itself is lovely, with a much-loved and very comfortable and cosy feel. It is spacious and welcoming , well equipped and charmingly decorated with a mix of modern and traditional furniture.

We appreciated the warmth ( November visit), Jennifer's excellent communication before our stay and the very helpful travel information and suggestions for places to visit, the pretty balcony with views over the park and the ability to park on-site. The nearby convenience stores and pubs and restaurants were a bonus.

The cost is very reasonable and the booking and arrival process very easy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Thank you Jennifer.

Good Functional Flat in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment for us. Easy to get to and from by bus or underground. We had 5 people and we fitted in nicely as the couch could be converted to a bed. The apartment had all the facilities we needed for cooking and washing. There was some noise at times due to multi-apartment building but this did not worry us. I would fully recommend this to others who want a comfortable apartment. Jennifer provided lots of information on where to go, what we see and general details of the area.

Great location. Had a lovely family break with 2 young children.

  • 4 of 5

The flat is easy to find and very close to great bus routes. Also an easy walk to many attractions including London Eye and Houses of Parliament. The flat is very comfy and is just as the photos show (apart from a different sofa which is a bit uncomfortable). We were there with 2 young children and it suited us really well.

Notes:

  • There is a lift to the 2nd floor where the apartment is located. We ask smokers to respect the fact that they are welcome to smoke on the balcony, but please not in the apartment as the smell of nicotine is not pleasant for non-smoking clients who may come after you. There is no wheelchair access into the shower as the shower is over the bath. We love animals but there is no garden and the apartment is on the second floor. please note that there is a £20 administration fee to alter a booking that reduces the length of stay. If you increase the length of stay there is no administration fee. If the length of stay is reduced up to 3 months or more in advance of arrival, and a vacancy results that is less than 5 days, 50% of the cancelled dates is refundable. If the cancellation of part of the booking occurs within 3 months of arrival date which creates a vacancy of less than 5 days, the caneclled dates are non-refundable, because most bookings are made 6 months in advance
