Who we are

  1. We are a young professional couple from London with a passion for travel and music. We are interested is travelling anywhere and are flexible on dates. I have done home swaps before with my mum and sister and have had fantastic experiences, so was inspired to join home for exchange myself. We are very easy going and just love to travel, meet new people and experience new things. If the home we exchange with is big enough we may travel with my mum and sister, otherwise we would travel as a couple.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our flat is located in Canada Water, a lovely recently developed area just 15 minutes from central London and only 2 tube stops from London bridge. This former dockland area benefits from a network of previous docks which now provide modern waterside living. Greenland Dock, which our apartment overlooks is one of the largest of these bodies of water and benefits from a watersports centre where a variety of sailing and boating activities can be arranged. There are a number of pubs nearby overlooking the docks, including the Moby Dick just a 30 second walk away and the Wibbly Wobbly, a quirky pub on a boat which hosts barbecues on it's floating deck in the summer months.
Just behind the property is Russia Dock woodland, a picturesque wooded area with grassy open spaces perfect for picnics and family walks. At the centre of the woodland is a small hill with a 3D relief map of the area at the top and wonderful panoramic views of London from the peak. At night the woodland is teeming with local wildlife and there are regular nighttime bat watching walks where you can spot local wildlife with a guide.
The bank of the Thames is just minutes from the property where you can look across the river at the famous canary wharf building and the financial heart of the city.
As well as great transport links into central London by bus or tube, the area is also served by the river taxi, a unique way to explore the city and take in the beauty of London through the waterways.
This apartment provides a great base for exploring the bustling city of London quickly and easily while returning to a quiet, safe and picturesque area at the end of the day.
