The apartment was exactly as it was described on-line.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at the apartment for a week in September. Vito the owner met us at the station and walked us to it. There are a lot of stairs, but that wasn't an issue for us. It was clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water and pressure and beautiful large bath towels. The location was ideal for us, we walked to The London Eye, Big Ben, War Museum and Churchill War Rooms. The train/tube station (Vauxhall) was easy to navigate and perfect for us to get where we needed to go. We took the tube a lot and the train to see relatives. Grocery stores were close by and well-stocked for our needs. We ate at the Rose Pub, which was really good, and The Counter Restaurant which is right by the train station, the food was good, service ok.

I would definitely recommend the apartment to others and go there again if I had the opportunity. Thanks again Vito and Mary. Leigh Golding

Very clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The flat is not a lived in flat so there is no clutter. It is very comfortable and has been recently updated. The bathroom and kitchen were beautifully done. All other rooms were clean and nice. Even though it is close to a very busy area and tube stop, plus a train station, the street the flat is on, Vauxhall Grove, is nice and quiet. What was really convenient was the little grocery store right at the entrance/exit to the tube. Also right there is a nice restaurant. After visiting the Tate Britain Museum we walked across Vauxhall bridge to our flat. Vito was there to meet us and show the place to us. He also answered questions via text which was very helpful. Plus there was a washing machine in the kitchen which we needed.

Exceeded our expectations...the flat was clean, modern and close to the tube. Couldn't have asked for more. Vito was charming and met us at the flat. His famous lemon cake was joined by scones and jam made by his wife. Both were fabulous. It contributed to the enjoyment of our trip.

Had a wonderful vacation for our family of four. Close to tube station, groceries, restaurants. Short stroll to Thames. Comfortable and clean apartment. Vito kindly met us and showed us around, even provided some goodies in the refrigerator.

Wonderful visit to London!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young children (nine and six years old) for a week in July. The apartment was clean, comfortable and very well located to hop on the tube or a double decker bus (a requirement by our nine year old). It was perfect for a family, close the grocery stores, and we even used the playground a block away. I enjoyed early morning walks along the Thames while the rest of the family got ready for the day. The apartment was well organized and had everything we needed, including toys and games for the kids to play. Vito and Mary were always responsive during the booking process and Vito was there to meet us when we arrived. We had no problems during our stay, and we would definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay and will definitely stay here again when we return to London. We traveled with our two children (12 & 16) and the apartment was just right for us. Booking and responsiveness from Mary and Vito were great before we even arrived. Vito met us at the apartment and made sure we were settled in. We flew over night and were pretty tired and hungry when we arrived. Vito had a lemon cake, drinks and a few other nice items in the fridge - the perfect way to start our trip!

The location couldn't be better! We walked and jogged along the Thames which was so much fun. We also easily took the trains and buses to other locations that were too far to walk. There are some great local places to grab a bite, not just the chains in and around Vauxhall Station, but also a great Asian/Fish and Chips take out and a wonderful Indian restaurant on Harleyford Road. There is a coffee vendor along the Thames as we walked to Parliament that was really good as well and worth a short morning walk when you have time.

We thought the apartment was nicely furnished and had everything we needed. We watched football (soccer) and Wimbledon at night on the TV and all 4 of us could easily watch. We ate out many nights but were there for 10 nights so had a few nights in as well. The kitchen was just right for putting together a meal and there are two small food stores in Vauxhall Station for supplies. We also went to a Whole Foods on Glasshouse Street for a few ingredients we couldn't find in the local stores (but you can find almost everything in the smaller stores). Internet was fine and easy to use, beds were very comfortable and we slept very well!! While the location is busy, the street is amazingly quiet and the bedrooms were especially so. There is also a washing machine and for a 10 day trip that was really helpful. They have thought of almost everything you'll need from irons and ironing boards, drying rack for clothes, blow dryer, and nice big bath towels. You will need your own soap and shampoo.

This was such a great experience and we were so happy with the choice. The apartment lived up to all the five star ratings. Thank you Vito and Mary!

From the Owner

This apartment is my former home, very comfortable and very central. The street is very quiet but a short walk from the transport system to get you around town. The Thames Clipper river bus is 5 minutes walk away and it is an amazing way to view the city and much cheaper than the tourist charter boats.
