The property offers a haven of peace and calm from the city bustle, and amazing views from the west-facing balcony and from every room across the harbour and docks to Canary Wharf.

Blackwall DLR station is 5 minutes walk away. Canary... Wharf underground station, just 10 minutes, both giving quick access to all the historic sights of London.

Sleeps 4/6. 2 bedroom large, contemporary, comfortable waterfront apartment in the centre of London Docklands. With west-facing balcony and amazing views of Blackwall dock & Canary Wharf. Watch the sun go down and the lights come on, while ducks and cormorants swim below the balcony. Just 10 mins walk from the shopping malls, bars and restaurants, but in a peaceful, quiet development.

'Away-from-it-all' but right in the city, this 900 sqft apartment is in a quiet low-rise development in a peaceful location, but just moments from all the facilities and excitement of Canary Wharf. The light and spacious living area and wonderful harbour views make this a special place to stay. London Docklands is a thriving mixture of contrasts, from the city bankers to the working river barges, with a colourful multi-cultural local community, offering restaurants of every nationality.

Diverse local shops include high fashion stores in the Docklands malls as well as a useful tiny supermarket one minute away from the apartment. There are excellent transport links to all the historic sights and best shopping areas of central London and the 02 Arena is 10 minutes away.

"Homely apartment in a great location with fantastic views."

An apartment which offered good amenities in a very accessible location for transport into Central London and the O2. Very quiet and relaxing location surrounded by water and within easy walking distance of the shops at Canary Wharf.
The owner is very accommodating and provided all the necessary home comforts making it a very enjoyable carefree stay.
The Gun, a gastro pub, is just around the corner for good food and wine offering a pleasant evening.
Hopefully we will stay in this apartment again next year.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to meeting you again next year.

"Fantastic roomy unit, immaculate presentation and quiet"

Stayed 7 nights with a friend, bedroom each, in late September. Due to holiday changes arrived a few hours earlier than originally planned. Gillian kindly offered to allow drop off of luggage while she cleaned the unit from the previous guests. I rec'd a text as soon as it was ready.

Although the Blackwall DLR is closer my recommendation for anyone arriving with luggage is to alight at Canary Wharf and catch a taxi. Cab Rank is there, fare was around £7, well worth it for the first day if you aren't familiar with the area and/or don't want to haul your luggage about the streets.

First impression of the unit was very favourable and that impression never left. I was in the main bedroom, very comfortable mattress, in fact wanted to bring the bed back home with me.

The full size kitchen was appreciated though never used. There's a pin board in the kitchen with local take out menus, very handy for the nights you don't feel like going out for dinner.

Milk in the fridge on arrival meant a relaxing cuppa while sitting on the balcony overlooking the water.

My only negative was the lack of a clothes dryer as you can't rely on sunny days to dry your clothes. Most likely not a concern for most though.

Gillian replied to all emails quite promptly and was very easy to deal with. My security deposit was returned almost immediately and the wi-fi reception was very good.

I'd happily stay here again and would recommend to family/friends.

Thank you for such a kind review, I am so pleased you had a happy stay and everything was up to expectations. I would love to install a tumble dryer, but there just isn't the space in the kitchen, so I hope the retractable washing line on the balcony, which is under cover of the balcony above, helps future guests to dry their clothes.

"Perfect base for exploring the city"

We, a family of four with two teenagers, stayed there for 5 days. The apartment borders the water of the Blackwell basin on two sides, with gorgeous views of Canary Wharf over the water, geese and ducks flying by now and then... It's a quiet oasis in the rush of the city, perfect for recharging your batteries for the next exploration. The Docklands Light Railway & the tube can be reached in less than 10 min on foot. From there it takes perhaps 10 to 15 min to reach the city center. The apartment is very nice and has all facilities needed for a convenient stay. Supermarkets are within easy reach (10-15 min on foot).
We hope to be back soon for a more thorough exploration of London!

"Fabulous Flat and Location"

We enjoyed a family stay with our children aged 12 & 10. Flat was perfect for our needs, immaculately clean and welcome pack of milk, organge juice, tea, coffee etc... was very much appreciated. Owner was extremely helpful during booking and providing information on area, lots of helpful information was also available in the apartment. Loved the views from balcony, Canary Wharf is such a nice, clean area to get away from the hustle and bustle every night was great and commuting from there is so easy with a choice of boat, DLR or tube. Would definately recommend to others.

"Beautiful Apartment in a great location"

We were exhibiting at the Excel and it was lovely to come home to this apartment rather that a hotel. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything you need for a comfortable stay

"I hope to return soon"

I stayed at this apartment in March 2014 with a friend. We found the apartment and garage with no problem, and when we walked in all we could say was wow... It was a beautiful sunny day, and we instantly started taking photos of the amazing views.
Gillian was very helpful and friendly when we booked, and had left us tea, coffee, biscuits, fruit, milk etc. for when we arrived.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and well furnished. It was good after a day out in London to return to a home that was comfortable, and quiet. We found supermarkets nearby, and Gillian has left information about the take aways and restaurants in the area.
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends -( I have done already). I hope to return soon.
