We are Jennifer and Greg, a married couple with two young children. We've lived in London all our lives, and are passionate about our wonderful city, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
Greg is a Black Taxi Driver, so what he doesn't know about London isn't worth knowing! We are of course happy to offer any advice you may want regarding your stay in London.
You will want for nothing if you stay here - there is space to unwind after a day of sight-seeing, a fabulous kitchen if you want to cook for yourself, a communal garden overlooking the Limehouse Cut canal if you want a picnic; and beds are excellent quality so you're bound to get a good nights sleep.
The flat will very easily accomodate 8 people, without feeling you're on top of each other or cramped. It is perfect for a business trip, a family or a group of friends.
Any other questions please do ask.
The flat is in a quiet private residential square, so please - no parties or loud music, and we're sorry, we can't accomodate hen or stag parties.
3 night booking minimum Interaction with GuestsYou will have the entire flat to yourselves and you will be given 2 sets of keys. We will be contactable by mobile or on the Airbnb website should you need any help at all. The NeighborhoodPLEASE READ THIS SECTION BEFORE BOOKING
