This is a charming apartment in Forest Hill that is very close to transit, shops, and restaurants. I was there for two weeks and had a wonderful stay. The apartment is beautifully decorated and comfortable with lots of books to browse through and everything you need (good shower, washer/dryer, good kitchen). Julie was very helpful and quick to answer any questions. I will be recommending this place to my friends and colleagues. Excellent Anastasia Anderson 10/23/2018 2:50:00 PM
Julie and Jad have created a perfect little oasis for anyone wanting to spend some time in London, be it on a sabbatical, for research, or a simple vacation. The flat is lovely and very comfortable, there's more books to read than you could ever want, a perfect amount of space for one or two people, and I felt very at home. Not to mention Julie and Jad are wonderful hosts and helped me with anything I might need. The area is perfect, an easy Tube (or bus) ride into London, but a lot of great food and things to do in walking distance of Forest Hill as well. I really enjoyed being able to go into London, but still feel like I got the experience of 'living outside' it. Forest Hill is a lovely place.

I very highly recommend this flat (and Jad and Julie). After spending a little over two months here, I know I've gotten some great research done at the British Library, but also made two wonderful friends. I will be staying at this flat again on my next visit and I highly recommend you consider it as well if you're looking for a place to stay while visiting the London area.

My husband and I enjoyed this well-stocked flat, which has more books than even we could read. It's across the street from Sainsbury's, and steps from Forest Hill station (especially convenient if you're traveling via Gatwick).

Julie & Jad are gracious hosts, and we'll be sure to stay here the next time we're in London.

Absolutely loved this little apartment with its amazing library, location and amenities. If you are looking for a great home base for your visit to London, this is it. Thanks Julie and Jad...we had an awesome time and looked forward to returning to this cozy apartment every night after a full day of touring London. Excellent Jean Courtney 6/19/2012 5:02:00 PM
Julie was a very accommodating hostess and everything was as expected (or better). She sent us detailed directions and was there to welcome us, the apartment was ready for us and was more spacious than we had expected. It is quite large for a studio apartment and it was quite cozy. If you love reading, you will be very content here as there is a wonderful array of books on shelves throughout the apartment and it was just great for a book lover!

Forest Hill is a nice area, with all the basics you need in terms of take away, groceries, laundromat, pubs and restaurants. There are many wonderful parks nearby and it is a great neighborhood for walkers/joggers. There is a lovely little museum up the street and a bit further, lovely park and art museum in Dulwich. The train station is basically across the street with a direct train to London Bridge and Overground service to quickly connect to downtown London. It is nice to have the neighborhood feel and be out a bit from the crowds of tourists, but yet be able to access all the sights of London easily.
