This stunning Victorian townhouse is set in a quiet street in Putney/Wandsworth (Inner London — Zone 2), a 3-5 minutes walk from the river Thames, and just 12-14 minutes into Central London. Within a 2 min walk are direct buses to Victoria, Sloane …
The apartment was everything we expected and more. Everything oozed quality from the bed linen to the great (and spacious) kitchen, fabulous bathroom and cozy lounge. We were basically 5 adults (3 teenagers) and the second bedroom was a squeeze but we knew that it would be. We had a futon as the 3rd bed and that limited space to store suitcases.
It's the little things that count and I can't think of a thing that Angela had not thought of. The welcome pack was very detailed and Angela was the perfect host. I would say that the apartment would be ideal for a couple with perhaps two younger children.
Free phone calls to Australia (up to an hour) included but it would have been good had we been able to receive calls from our friends back home. Angela may I suggest that each flat gets its own phone number. International roaming charges for Australians in UK are very expensive so most don't use their Australian mobiles in UK.
Anyway, if that's the only thing I can find, you've done a great job Angela.
All the best

My family (4 people) and a family’s friend (4 extra people) spent 6 days in this lovely apartment. I can tell you that we had such a wonderful relaxing stay that it was hard to leave and return to our daily life.
The apartment proved as advertised- clean, quiet, comfortable, It was spacious (3 separate bedrooms, sitting room and separate kitchen with all sort of equipment) clean, warm and homely. Bathrooms and kitchen appear to be recently renovated with dishwasher, cooker, washing machine, coffee maker, microwave/convection oven. Furniture and decoration are of very good taste.
The welcome milk, champagne, tea and coffee and fruit was a lovely touch and the cupboards contained many "useful" items so that you could cook a meal if you wanted (so many apartments provide a cooker and microwave but only one spoon or knife). Arriving from the airport we were glad that we could have a good cup of coffee without having to venture out to buy it
The location is excellent, everything you can need is conveniently situated, just a short walk to the underground and the bus stop, Putney High St with a good choice of restaurants, plenty of supermarkets across the street. A really exhaustive information pack (nice touch) is provided by the owner.
Add to that the owner, Angela, that proved a charming hostess and you have a truly great London accommodation. I can’t wait to be back in the autumn. Thoroughly recommended !
Warm and cosy apartment, this place was ideal for our stay in London before Christmas. It was very well heated and a lovely haven to come back to at the end of the day. Christmas lights were beautiful as usual, especially along Regent Street. Kitchen had everything we needed, shops nearby for food and wine, nice delis and restaurants. It was out of the noisy touristy areas, clean and tidy, a nice neighbourhood and we jogged every morning in the park (it was surprisingly warm for December!). Very quiet too for a London apartment! Occasional plane noise but it didn't bother us, you hear them in most parts of London. We would definitely stay here again and are already planning a trip for next Summer.
We planned a week in London and were looking for a condo fairly central (within zone 2 on the tubemap) but not in a to busy area/street and with easy access due to a pram we needed to bring for the youngest. We had a list of other amenieties we wanted to be in place as well, such as wi-fi, dishwasher and washer etc - and this condo met every need, and more.
First of all, the correspondence with angela should be gold standard to every owner of condos for rent. The information beforehand and in place in the flat met every question we had, and others were quickly answeared.
The flat iself was much better than we hoped for. The kids loved it, running in the corridor and bedrooms, they enjoyed wathing the telly, bathing. We made our meals easly and everything worked perfectly. The suggestions we had regarding travelling with small children (for example a high chair for det smallest children) was seriuosly considered.
The communications was easy accesed, bus, tube, train and cab. We planned the next day using the free wi-fi, excellent! We found two great playgrounds nearby for the children and could provide the groceries we needed close by.
We can highly recommend both the owner and the flat to other families travelling with to small children (ours aged 2 and 5). We have already booked another week.
I traveled to London with my 70-year-old mother and my 10-year-old daughter, and we all loved staying in this flat. It was perfectly appointed, convenient and comfortable -- and a nice retreat after long days of sightseeing.
Angela was wonderful -- she provided a detailed guide to the flat's amenities, places to see and how to get there, as well as local restaurants, etc. And -- knowing it was my daughter's birthday -- she even gave her a little birthday present. So many extra touches that made us feel right at home.
My family would definitely stay here on upcoming trips to London.
Delightfully modernised groundfloor apartment in Victorian terrace. Tiny courtyard where we sat on nice days. Best equipped kitchen I can remember anywhere. Dishwasher, modern oven, loads of cooking equipment. Lovely deep bath in the bathroom. Roomy openplan kitchen /living area. Beds very comfortable (bedrooms typically British size ie not very big) but good storage for clothes etc. Big tv. Close to supermarkets, nice pubs (Queen Adelaide recommended) and cafes (The Pantry recommended). Best transport connections we found was bus to Putney Bridge station as good bus service even though East Putney and Wandsworth are closer stations.
Right under a flight path - but ear plugs are provided. Other than planes a surprisingly peaceful street for somewhere in the heart of London. Would stay here again!
My family and I stayed here for a week while visiting London and were extremely happy with the apartment and its location. The apartment is in great shape and has everything listed in the ad. The location is within walking distance of a nice park and a number of restaurants, shops, and transit.
We have two young children and they had ample space in the second bedroom as did we in the master bedroom.
The landlord was great to deal with and is happy to help if there are any issues (although we had none during our stay).
I am back in Australia and have been very busy telling everyone about the Wandsworth/Putney flat we stayed in.
Great after a long flight to arrive and find the accommodation is everything you were hoping it would e including a bottle of champagne as a welcome. Comfy beds & quality linen.
The kitchen is certainly user friendly with everything one needs and the courtyard great for dining alfresco. The pub & restaurants by the river are excellent and one restaurant has an Italian deli attached serving great antipasto and takeaway meals.
We walked to Putney Bridge tube along the riverbank, caught the nearby buses to various destinations - all so easy.
We would book again.
We were very happy with this great little flat, it was well located near transport and amenities. We flew in from Australia and after the long trip found the flat clean, warm and comfortable, and very well appointed. The rooms were quite large and had good cupboard space. We cooked in a lot, and the kitchen was very well equipped, with lots of pots and pans, stove, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine - they have thought of everything. The TV had a lot of really good channels, unlike many hotel rooms, so we watched free movies and the latest programs at night. Shopping facilities were about 5 minutes walk away, as well as a multi-screen movie theatre. Getting out and about was very easy, buses, train and tube nearby took us pretty much all over London. We would definitely recommend this flat to friends visiting London for a few days or longer.
