The clean 3 bedroom apartment is set in a quiet neighborhood on the Thames with a view of the O2 Arena. The description of the apartment was spot on. Since we stayed for 9 nights the housekeeper came after 4 nights and cleaned the apartment and changed the linens. That was a bonus we did not expect. The entertainment system was excellent and the wifi was sufficient especially since we had to contact people after the Boston Marathon. We were able to enter the apartment early which was nice especially after a long night flight to London. Obtaining the key was easier than expected. We chose to walk to Canary Wharf every day to catch the Jubilee line. It was a nice 15 minute walk, and decided it was easier than to walk to South Quay and catch the DLR only to have to change to Jubilee. We also chose to have our main meals out so we did not use the full kitchen facilities. The 3rd floor bedroom was the largest and the best so put your dibs in early! We have stayed in Christine's apartments before and have recommended them to our colleagues.
Reviews: My husband and I had a very good holiday in London recently. We found this house on the net and were very pleased to find that it was better than we expected. The house was clean, modern and bright. Well organised and everything was provided. The river provided us with constant fascination and interest that on occasion we just went out later in the day. Canary Wharf was a short walk away and we travelled around town using our Oyster cards, which are excellent value. Late one night we came home on the bus from Leicester Square, everywhere was quite safe and the bus dropped us off right outside the Square in about 10 minutes travel time. The 02 Arena is a must even if you just want to eat at one of the restaurants there and feel part of everything. Generally, we did the sights but would still like to return and would hope to stay at the lovely townhouse on the River Thames. Would certainly recommend it to others, its quiet, convenient for everywhere and being situated in a private square there was no busy traffic or fumes. Bliss! "
"The summer cottage corresponded completely to the description with very good equipment, a dreamlike situation on the Thames, short ways to the underground and DRL. We have spent with 2 adults and 4 teenagers great days in London and will recommend the "Riverside"with pleasure. "
"This was a wonderful place to stay. We've been there for 6 nights and it was a great time in this lovely house. The view on the O2 Arena and the river Themse from the panorama window in the living room is amazing. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and the bathrooms. We would come back and stay in this house and also highly recommend it to others."

I enjoyed my stay at your lovely vacation home for our 10 days earlier this year. We all quickly adjusted to the busses, ferries and underground and were able to visit most all of the places we wanted to see including sights out of London such as Warwick Castle and Stonehenge. We enjoyed the Tower of London and Greenwich and found a number of restaurants and pubs to our liking. We shopped the grocery stores successfully, cooked 3 or 4 dinners and all our breakfasts in your efficient and pretty kitchen.
Your tour books, albums and notes were of great help and went a long way to getting us “into the picture” very quickly. It was so nice to have a home to come to at the end of our busy days. Arriving from a pretty warm California, I feel a little guilty about thoroughly enjoying the rain and snow, but it really didn't stop our enjoyment one bit. We were able to see Billy Elliott one evening with perfect 4th row seats purchased at the last minute that day. On a couple of half-days, I elected to stay home to do a few chores and enjoy the view and watch various projects being worked on and just “kicked back” all by myself. It was lovely.
Thank you for your gracious help with our little queries. I surely would recommend your rental. I'd not been to East London before, but have read many novels describing how The Isle of Dogs used to be and marveled at the beauty it has become.
