The London region

Docklands / Canary Wharf area - Until about 1800, the Isle of Dogs was a marshy agricultural area. Some say that the name Isle of Dogs came about because Henry VIII kept his hunting dogs on the island. Once the docks were built c. 1800, the waterways of the docks cut off the southern part of the area making it truly an island.

In 1988 construction work began at Canary Wharf. The area has been transformed into a high rise financial and business centre. However, many of the docks and their machinery still survive providing an added attraction to the area.

Central London/Zone 2

The Olympic Park is less than 4 miles / 7 kms from the apartment.

The warehouses around Docklands' West India Quay are the best preserved in London and now house a selection of bars and restaurants.

The Museum of London Docklands occupies a Georgian warehouse on the banks of the West India Quay. It's a great place to visit and explore 12 galleries of artefacts, paintings, engravings and photographs charting the history of the area from the Romans right through to the present day.

The Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre is a 2 minute walk away and holds activities, such as dragon boating, sailing, windsurfing or kayaking/canoeing. Non members are welcome. Twilight sailing is very popular with members and non members alike. This takes place on Wednesday evenings starting at 6.00 pm and sailing is followed by a relaxing barbecue. Non members are charged just £25.00 for their evening of sailing, including the barbecue. If you just want to watch and enjoy the après sail barbecue, this will cost you just £15.00. Please see http://www.dswc.org

Mudchute Farm and Park is Europe's largest urban farm and is overlooked by Canary Wharf's skyscrapers. It is a 15 minute walk from the apartment and you could easily be in the British countryside rather than a stone's throw away from the skyscrapers. Take a horse ride through the 12.5 hectares (31 acres) of open parkland or meet the sheep, pigs, ducks and geese at the farm. Take a picnic and you can even join the llamas for lunch! Entry is free.

Shopaholics and and food lovers are well catered for in Canary Wharf with a choice of more than 200 shops, bars and restaurants. Luxurious brands such as Tiffany & Co., Jo Malone and Montblanc sit side-by-side with high street names such as Topshop, Reiss, Whistles and Zara. There is also a selection of quintessentially British brands such as Aspinal of London, and Hackett as well as smaller independent shops and designer boutiques.

Canary Wharf hosts lots of public events such as open air and indoor concerts, the London Ice Sculpting Festival, comedy nights, and movie screenings. Many events are free and for more information please visit www.mycanarywharf.com

If jazz, blues and soul is your thing, then check out Boisdale of Canary Wharf. Live music is played six nights a week with fantastic views of Canary Wharf. The Scottish themed restaurant also offers the finest beef, lamb, game and seafood and, if you like whisky, the bar in the restaurant holds over 1,000 bottles of malt whisky and claims to be one of the most extensive and magnificent whisky bars in the world.

"Our third stay at this fantastic apartment"

The owner, Nicholas, always goes out of his way to make our 10 day stay extremely comfortable, and this was no exception. As we exhibit at the London Boat Show at ExCel it is such a wonderful place to return to each evening (10 mins drive) to relax after a very exhausting day. The beds are incredibly comfortable (and I am fussy!), together with the fluffy towels, and all the extras that he provides such as shower gel/soap, loo paper, large bowl of fruit, jams, tea/coffee, right down to the vase of roses - fantastic! The flat itself has oodles of space - a great kitchen with all the gadgets for cooking - and views across the Thames that are unsurpassed. As you can see, we love it there and have booked for Jan 2016 already!

"Truly riverside luxury and more than a home from home."

We were greeted with a warm welcome from Nicholas. The apartment was beyond our expectations for a short stay holiday rental, with all the comforts and mod-cons of home. A welcome touch was Nicholas had provided provisions beyond tea, coffee & milk. The apartment is ideally located a short walk from Crossharbour DLR and Canary Wharf, making London City Airport and central London easily accessible. A pleasure and hope to stay again.

"Beyond our expectations"

If you are looking for a place to stay while in London - look no further! As soon as I saw the photos for this apartment I knew I had found something really special. This was not our first experience in renting a holiday property but was by far our best experience. Nicholas could not have been more helpful, he was extremely prompt getting back to us with any inquiries we had, and meeting him on the day we arrived was an absolute pleasure. He provided us with a complete tour of the unit then went on to give us some invaluable advice about places to see and the best way to get around London. He also made sure we were well supplied with food to get us through the first day which was a such a thoughtful thing to do for weary travellers. The unit itself is extremely clean, bright and perfectly located if you are looking for a quiet place to put your feet up at the end of those busy days of site-seeing. The apartment is located within a few minutes walk of the bus-stop which will then drop you close to the Canary Wharf underground station, then it's a short ride to the busy heart of the city. If you prefer the above-ground train there is easy access to that as well, although it is a bit further to walk, but it is a really pleasant and safe-feeling area to walk through. There is a grocery store along the bus route if you need to dash in for a few items, or a larger one not far away if you are planning on cooking in and need to stock up with a larger amount of supplies. There were 6 adults in our party (3 couples) and we never felt crowded, there is plenty of space to spread out and relax. The living/dining room is furnished with a nice entertainment system, plenty of light and lots of comfortable seating for 6 people. The balcony that opens off that area (which overlooks the Thames) has a table and chairs for you to sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets, or an early morning cup of coffee. The apartment is also well supplied with plenty of reading material if you forget to bring your favourite novel. The beds were super comfy, bathrooms supplied with everything you will need (hair dryers, soaps, shampoos, and other assorted toiletries). The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you will need if you decide to cook. Although we were on vacation we still ended up cooking a few meals there and it was such a great space for we cooks to gather to make meals and share a glass of wine and some laughs about the day's adventures. I could go on and on but you get the idea.........stop looking and just trust me.........this is the place you want to stay! We will most definitely be back if we are lucky enough to visit London again in the future. Thanks again Nicholas, for everything!

"A memorable experience!"

Our two week stay at Nicholas and Yvonne's apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. Nicholas set the standard with excellent communication when we were researching where to stay. The apartment is large,bright,clean,modern,well appointed and quiet. The view and the boat traffic on the Thames was a great source of entertainment and since it's west facing over the river,the benefactor of some great sunsets. Our one concern before we arrived was the bus ride to the Canary Wharf Tube station which turned out to be a non-issue because there is a bus every five minutes for a five minute ride. We found eating and shopping at Canary Wharf convenient with everything we needed. Nicholas met us when we arrived and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment and presented us with a well stocked kitchen so we got through our first night without the hassle of shopping after a ten hour flight. We have visited London many times ,always staying in hotels previously. Having the benefit and convenience of this apartment made it a very memorable experience.

"Superb Stay"

Beautiful apartment situated on the Thames close to the hub of Canary Wharf. The area was quite peaceful but with enough things close at hand such as restaurants, mini markets and the DLR with easy access both to Greenwich and Central London. It was ideal for our party of 6, including Grandma, Mum and Dad and 3 kids, to watch Dad do the London Marathon as the route passes straight past the apartment. Although we didn't get to meet Nicholas the owner he was very attentive to ours needs ensuring the apartment complex staff were at hand to guide us in and the apartment contains plentiful information for a pleasant stay in London. Can't wait to go back!

"Excellent"

We stayed for two weeks in March 2014. The apartment is a large for a central London, on the 5th floor of a modern gated block with views (and balconies) looking both east over docklands and west directly over the Thames towards the City. Very comfortably furnished throughout and in excellent condition, There is on site secure parking and a gym. The owner, Nicholas, could not have been more welcoming and provides absolutely everything you may need. Regarding location, all the modern amenities, shops, supermarkets and restaurants of Canary Wharf are 10 minutes walk. Local pubs, cafes and convenience stores are even closer. Greenwich is 20 minutes walk via the pedestrian tunnel under the Thames. Walks along the Thames path and the Limehouse canals are superb. For the less energetic three very frequent bus routes stop 2 minutes from the apartment block, the DLR to the City, the Jubilee line or the Thames Clipper fast ferry to Waterloo and the West End are all just 10 minutes walk away. We were delighted with this property and would recommend it without hesitation to anybody wanting peaceful, secure, high quality accommodation within very easy striking distance of central London.

"Lovely apartment, friendly welcome, definitely would recommend"

We stayed here for 3 nights in half term (Feb) with my wife and three children (ages 14, 12 and 9). We were met by Nicholas (owner) who could not have been friendlier in showing us around. He had left us a welcome pack which even included a bottle of wine as it was my wife's birthday during our stay. As the apartment comes with secured parking, we bought our own food/ drink for the stay but there is a Tesco express within 10 minutes' walk for anything that was forgotten. The apartment is about a 15 min walk to Canary Wharf but if you have travel/ oyster cards, all the frequent busses that pass near the entrance of the car park will go there. The apartment itself is stylish and modern with wonderful views over the Thames and some of the London landmarks in the distance. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to come again if we were to stay in London again.

"Fantastic apartment, a must stay, would return again"

We stayed in this apartment in July 2013 (a VERY belated review, apologies!) We travelled with 6 adults and a 14 month old baby. The apartment is beautiful, very modern, wonderful views on the Thames, very clean and with all the amenities that you need for a self catering stay. The week we stayed the UK was having a heat wave and even though the apartment doesn't have air conditioning which we knew and were fine with, we arrived to the owner Nicholas putting together recently purchased fans just for our stay, a very welcome surprise and very thoughtful. In fact everything in the apartment is very thought through. There is lots if information bono outfit London and sightseeing etc. There are also Oyster cards in the apartment which are available for guests to top up and use during their stay. The owners once lived there so it very much has the feel of being a home rather than a hotel. The complex is gated so is very safe and the nearest tube station is just one very short bus ride away so for us it was a perfect location to travel into the city without having to pay extortionate London rental prices. For us, using all three bedrooms the apartment was great value for money. There is a Tesco express on the bus route and is approx a 10/15 walk from the apartment if you fancy a little stroll. There are some local take away places within walking distance also along with a park next door. Just to reiterate it is an apartment in a high floor so if you do have children travelling with you just be aware that you will need to watch them with windows, balcony etc but that really goes without saying as a parent. We had a toddling 14 month old with us and we didn't find it a problem being in a high apartment and the balcony is railed and very safe. We all loved staying here, was the best accommodation of our 2 week trip, and we cannot recommend this apartment highly enough!

Hi Many thanks for such a nice review. Hope you had a good Xmas and New Year. Best wishes Nicholas and Yvonne

"Excellent upscale apartment with great view of Thames."

Nicholas is an extraordinarily generous and thoughtful owner. He responded immediately and helpfully each time an issue arose over the course of our one month stay. The kitchen is very well equipped, the beds and linen were of fine hotel quality, and the wifi was powerful. The furniture was comfortable and ample for six people in the lounge with its stunning views of the river and London. We used buses to get to supermarkets and the underground, because it is a bit far for walking, though doable. The concierge service was very friendly and helpful.

"Excellent accommodation with a wonderful view of Thames"

We had a great stay beginning with a very frendly welcome from owners Nicholas and Yvonne who made sure they had provided everything we needed. We found transport easy to access and reliable and were able to travel to all parts of London without effort. The property was large and most comfortable for three couples and well served by 24 hour security who were very friendly. Our friends, my wife and I had a great time and we would recommend it as a great place to stay in London.
