About this listing

Renovated to a high standard in 2014 and larger than most apartments in the area, my home is ideal for weekends or business. You're in Borough, one of London's most historic and cool spots.

The space

Comfortably sleeping four, the apartment is contemporary in style and entirely renovated just over two years ago to a high specification.
The bedroom sleeps two and has a king size bed with hotel style Tempur mattress, soft decoration and parquet flooring.
The bathroom is has a power shower providing hot water 24/7 and on-demand heating day and night.
The 25sqm lounge has lots of storage and a hidden wall mounted queen size pull down bed with high quality sprung mattress for a great night's sleep.
There is a modern American style kitchen, which is equipped with all you'd need to prepare a great breakfast, lunch or dinner bought from Borough Market, including Nespresso machine and wine cooler.

Guest access

The entire apartment is equipped with the latest in home entertainment and modern living with 55in smart TV, on demand movies from Netflix, Amazon or choose from multi language DVD's. There is also Sky TV or you can Chromecast from your own device. There are bluetooth speakers to connect your device & Spotify accounts to. What I don't have I'm afraid is an Xbox. You'll have keys to the place, which has a secure entry system as well. I provide a welcome pack, linen and towels to make your travel lighter. There's umbrella's (you're coming to London remember) and happy to help with any suggestions or requests you have. Please note: I don't have a washer/dryer as we have two laundry's about 200m and 500m walk away that do a full service wash, dry and fold for around £10.

Interaction with guests

I will usually be on hand to welcome you and usually connect before on Whats...App so you can drop me a note any time throughout your stay.

Other things to note

Let me know if you're new to London and what kind of things you like (sights, restaurants, bars etc) and I'll prepare some personalised recommendations, Goo...gle maps with walks, tours, sights, bars & restaurants web links to book in advance and make your life easier, including local taxis although Uber flourishes here. I'm happy to make reservations on your behalf as well as I really want you to get the most from my city as there is nowhere else like it.

I had a very nice stay at Adam’s apartment: he was incredibly gentle and helpful, he provided us with any sort of recommendation as to how to reach the apartment, what to visit, where to eat, what type of trips we could make around London, and he even welcomed us with some food and wine. The apartment was cozy, clean, very well equipped and offers anything you might need as a tourist in London (including maps, transformers and umbrellas!). It is quiet, comfortable and just a few minutes walk from Borough tube station and five to London Bridge station and the Borough market, and has pretty a lot of supermarkets and places where to eat nearby

Me and my family felt incredible welcome in Adams apartment! Everything was well organized and easy-peasy, from the beginning until the end. We very much appreciated the comfy, tasteful and well-located apartment, including the welcoming drinks and breakfast muffins as well as the funny 'emergency kit' for rainy days providing raincoats, games and umbrellas :-) We highly recommend this airbnb- Adam is a very caring host and shares also a lot of cool ideas and things to do in London.

Response from Adam:
I loved having you guys - you really are the spirit of Airbnb - cool, easy, respectful and adventurous of the city. The emergency rain kit is obligatory in London I'm afraid - sorry about that - but its the only way to survive our city in winter (and summer). You're welcome back anytime.

What a beautiful place! My daughter and I stayed there for 5 days. The apartment was just as described, in a great location near Borough Market and close to 2 tube stations. The apt was on the ground floor, beautifully remodeled, nice hot shower with plenty of hot water, comfortable bed, large TV in the front room. He had even read our profile and stocked the fridge with our favorite drinks. We met Adam on our last day (what we thought was our last day) and enjoyed his company and last minute sight seeing so much that we ended up staying 1 more night. He was extremely helpful from the beginning on where to go, what to see, and how to get there. We would definitely stay there again when we visit London again. Adam was always very responsive and informative. Thank you Adam for a great time!!!

I'm a senior level professional, now running my own international business based in London. I am well traveled - often flying globally for work and leisure - and know what real travel means.

I'm also a homeowner and user of airbnb since 2010, both as a guest and host, so know what it means to let someone live in your place and how important respectfulness is and also how hard work it is to have your place ready for guests.

I like to make sure visitors to London get the most from the trip and take great pleasure in helping suggest the best of Secret and Village London, help make reservations if you need and get you to the apartment easily. I'm always available throughout your stay if need arises.

Adam

Thanks
