Description from the manager
Don't bother trying to look-up this area in any guide book - you won't find it! The Roupell Street conservation area is a well kept secret - charming Victorian cottages, original gas-lamp standards, and traditional pubs. No wonder it's often used as a film set. Colin Firth and Renee Zellweger were recently spotted here shooting the sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary.
The house, in adjoining Theed Street, used to be a violin factory! After several re-incarnations it achieved its current form 3 years ago when it was converted into a modern open-plan family home. The street maintains its artistic links: a royal photographer lives next door an...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Nice 3 bedroom London home in convenient location
We were a party of 5 adults and stayed here for 5 nights. It is a nice home in a quiet, safe, conveninet location. The hosue was clean, and had a modern kitchen. We found the local pubs enjoyable, and good restaurants as well as all conveniences (groceries, pharmacy, etc.) within reasonable walking distance. Being 5 minutes walking distance to the Wateloo station allowed us easy access to the anywhere in the city. The staff at Coach House Rentals did a great job: 1.) presenting the property online,2.) responding to multiple emails, 3.)arranging airport pick up, and 4.) meeting us on arrival. We would stay here again if visting London.
A very pleasant stay.
The Coach House Rentals team were a pleasure to deal with and most efficient and helpful. The house turned out to be more spacious than we had envisaged and was well located, being close to the rail station, tube, bus stop and local Sainburys. Even had some good restaurants nearby. The complementary wi-fi and small amount of basics to get by re dishwashing, coffee and tea, etc was extremely welcome. If I really had to say what we liked least, it was probably the creaky wooden floors but that was a very minor issue!

Fabulous house and location.
I rented Theed St. for a 50th birthday with some girlfriends. The house was perfect (3 bathrooms!)and a great location. It was walking distance to many great London sights and areas but also very close to train and underground stations. A wonderful pub and bakery just steps away, as well as local grocery shops made this a perfect place to stay. The only thing that wasn't up to par were the furnishings in the living room - the sofas very much need replacing.

At home in Theed Street
We were met by very friendly and knowledgable Cedric and it was reassuring knowing that we could contact someone in case of emergencies. The starter pack is a really good idea for the first breakfast and cups of coffee and tea.
The kitchen was well equipped to cook a meal. The bed was firm and comfortable and everything was clean. It was great to able to come home after a long tiring day of being tourists. One very rainy day we came home since plodding about in the pouring rain was not nice and the couch, the newspaper and a hot drink were also part of our London experience !
The location is good for the Tube, and bus RV1 but we also walked a lot along the river and enjoyed the sights, the shops, the market, the many bridges. The home was also surprisingly quiet for such a big city. The closest supermarket, the Sainsbury's was very well equipped and always open.
The best part of staying here was being able to have enough room for two adults and two teenagers to not get into each other's way and to be able to relax in homelike setting.
There were a couple of small imperfections (no doormat, wobbly showerhead downstairs) but since the house is actually being lived in, it is possible that this can occur. They were not major and did not spoil the fun !
Theed St. was great
We had a slight problem with the car service. The driver was late and then didn't call them to let them know we were on the way. But, you can check with Coach House to make sure that glitch has been worked out.
We loved the location of the flat. Lots of restaurants nearby, grocery nearby, and tons of things to do. We didn't even get on the tube until half way through our trip, because we could easily walk to everything we wanted to do.
Tons of room to spread out and a nice layout so that each couple could have their own space. Bedrooms upstairs and downstairs, with living area in the middle as a great place to congregate to plan our day or to relax after a day out.
We are fairly self-sufficient, but Coach House is available by phone if you needed any advice. And, I loved having our own home and not being in a hotel. I always feel like the housekeeper is hovering for you to get out so they can clean. Plus, it was a quiet neighborhood despite being right in the middle of things.
White Hart at the end of the street was a nice pub. Always crowded. And, Waterloo Station was super convenient access to train to Windsor. Plus, it has a couple of nice places to eat besides having a small grocery store.
Will definitely stay here again, and will recommend it highly to others. Have a great time in London!

Great location, property and service
From the outset, everything went very smoothly and efficiently. The booking service was very prompt, courteous and efficient and they were very willing to engage with me about the details.
We had a car pick us up at the airport and take us directly to the property, which I recommend to anyone who has had anything more than a short flight
The property is very well located (close to Waterloo station and Southbank with most of London's landmarks within a good walking distance)and is very comfortable. All rooms are of a good size (particularly for a London flat)and the furnishings make you feel like it is a home, not an impersonal hotel. The home very accurately reflected the information and photos on the website. It suited our needs (2 adults and boys aged 12 and 15) admirably.
The greeting service was excellent and the welcome was much appreciated after a long plane trip from Australia.
We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it.
Great place to stay.
Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed at the THD in London last summer (2009) and loved it.
The location is perfect, every day we would walk to Trafalgar square (20 minute walk)and visit whatever landmark that day. There is a grocery store(Sainsbury) close by, Waterloo station and bus stop. The home is well equipped and rooms are comfortable, perhaps one of the mattresses in the lower bedroom should be replaced. Other than that all was great, and exactly as advertised. Not too many good restaurants close by, we found a great little cafe in the Crypt of St-Martin's in the Fields church and Covent gardens has wonderful little bistrots.

Great Holiday in a GREAT City.
The Service we received was 5* from the original booking to Mary "The Greeter" meeting us as Theed St, The house where we stayed was nice and spacious which was good as there were 5 adults, just one small gripe it looked newer in the advertisement, but wasn't bad. The location was spot on for us near Waterloo Station, London Eye and the best Bespoke Bakery on the planet, plus some nice friendly Bars and Restaurants all close to hand. It was nice and quiet in the evening so no sleep interuptions, overall we just all 5 of us had a terrific time, can't fault it even the British weather was brill, the only thing to complain about is that we had to return home too soon.

Perfect accommodation, perfect location
The flat on Theed Street was perfect for our group of 6 people. Having 3 floors, with en-suite baths in 2 of the rooms (top floor and bottom floor), the house offered convenience and privacy, as well as a comfortable common area on the middle floor. The location, just blocks from Waterloo Station is perfect -- access to everywhere by tube or train! Nearby grocery store, 2 pubs and delightful bakery only a block away added to the amazing convenience. Its location on Southbank is walking distance from major attractions -- The Eye, Westminster Abbey, Parliament and Big Ben, Tate Modern, St. Pauls, Shakespeare's Globe and many excellent pubs and restaurants.
The house is spotless, towells and bedding plentiful, washer and dryer worked perfectly, and the neighborhood is safe day or night.
The staff at Coach House Rentals was welcoming, helpful, professional and accommodating. We enjoyed the car service they arranged to get us at the airport -- a fun, informative driver even at 6 a.m.! The welcome pack of provisions was so helpful, and they even supplied fresh flowers to brighten our stay.
I will definitely return to Theed Street again, and I will definitely use Coach House Rentals for future stays in London or Paris. Bravo to you, and thank you for helping to make our vacation a total joy.
Theed Street - Beautiful house, great location
Let's start with location. Walking distance (20 minutes or less) to Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, St. Paul's. If you don't want to talk, Waterloo station is three blocks away. Sainsbury's, Internet Cafes, and nice restaurants all within a short walk.
House itself is spacious -- three full-sized bedrooms with three full bathrooms. Laundry and a full kitchen were very useful as well. Modern decor, well-kept and in great condition.
Would have loved a yard or large park nearby for our 4-year-old to run and play in, but there wasn't one very close. Still, proximity to so many of the key downtown locations made it a wonderful place to stay.
Unforgetable house and great location
We spent a fantastic 5 days staying here and everything was perfect from the
greeting by our host Cedric to the brilliant location and ease of transport.
There is also a brilliant bakery around the corner and some great pubs, the
White Hart was great for late night drinks. The house had everything you
needed and it felt just like home for us. There was nothing we did not enjoy
and the car to the airport was excellent value.S

Outstanding rental in London
Our family stayed in this rental for eight days starting in the end of May 2009. We have four children (ages 10-14) so we need the extra space the unit provided. What a great rental this turned out to be. I had been skeptical about finding a rental online... would I get scammed, would it be clean, how about the location... All those worries were put to rest.
We arrived on an overnight flight from Chicago and were met at the front door by a representative from the rental company (even though we were a half hour late arriving). He showed us all we needed to know about the unit. He had breakfast items for the children and I knew we had made the right decision.
The unit is very roomy. On the street level there two bedrooms, one with its own bath. One has a full size bed, a futon, and a small child's bed. We put our three boys in here. There was plenty of space for them. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Our daughter stayed here(my sister came for a couple of days and stayed in here as well). There is a hall bathroom that also housed a washer and dryer. This was very convenient for our family. My only concern was the dryer took forever to dry clothes, but it was great to have for our stay. Up the spiral staircase is the main floor. The kitchen and eating area were large and spacious. There was a living room with a t.v. set. (Not too many choices on British t.v. though). Up another spiral staircase was the master suite. It contained a large bedroom and bathroom. We had great weather, warm and sunny, so the wall of windows was wonderful to have in this room.
One of the best parts of renting this unit was the location. It was three blocks from the Waterloo Tube station. The Waterloo station is a main transportation hub. Besides four tube lines connecting here we also used the train station to go to Rye for the day.
We also enjoyed the neighborhood pub. Great beer, great crowd (but no kids allowed). Plenty of nearby restaurants. Great job!
Felt like home!
We(7 adults) spent one week in this property, which we found very comfortable, spacious, bright and clean. All you need was available and perfectly working.
What we loved most was the great location, close to the Waterloo station and at walking distance to many major attractions. Would surely stay there again when back in London with friends.

Great flat; Great location
Found this through Coach House Rentals, recommended by many users on Rick Steves' website. The flat was nice, bright and clean. Great location - a few minutes walk to either Waterloo or Waterloo East Station. Our family walked to London Eye/Aquarium one day; over to Oxo building another (~10 minute walk). Safe neighborhood - didn't feel nervous walking with my family even late at night. Relatively quiet, though we did have one night with some noise (party nearby?) Facilities were adequately equipped and clean. Had a minor problem with the fridge (door wouldn't close properly), which was fixed the morning after we called it in (at no charge to us; no questions). One mattress was a bit uncomfortable; others were fine. It was great having breakfast in before we left for the day. Had dinner in one night as well. So much nicer than being stuffed into a small hotel room. Yes, we would definitely stay there again.

Room to move
We booked this apartment for a week before Christmas and having stayed in London previously were expecing a dingy run down tiny place but instead found a roomy, well appointed house with room to move in a charming and central location.
We were met by the car organised by Coach House Rentals at Heathrow on time and given a private tour of London on the way to the apartment. The reprentative was out the front to welcome us when we arrived with provisions for the next few days and plenty of advice on how to enjoy our stay. Nearby is an English pub, French bakery, Waterloo train station and the London eye! The location could not be more central. Had a great stay and would recommend CHR to anyone visiting London.
Nice Home, Great Service
The home was exactly as promised and
the service and communication with the Coach House team could not have
It's unbelievable ...
It is unbelievable that you can be in the middle of London and yet enjoy such peace and quiet.
This very light, modern, relaxed "Scandinavian-style" (as we like to call it!) house is in a time pocket - but just round the corner from e.g. busy Waterloo Road.
A 10-minute walk (where you are able to almost avoid cars) takes you to e.g. Tate Modern (where we enjoyed our morning espressos looking down on the river most mornings while we were in Theed Street).
In fact we used hardly any means of transport except for our feet: you can cross the river on pedestrian bridges and you can walk along the Embankment both east and west.
I have been to London many, many times before and was quite fed up with the traffic, the noise and the dirt - but finding the little house in Theed Street has completely changed this. In fact we have already booked our next stay in Theed Street.
The house is well-equipped and we walked 20 minutes east to Borough Market and bought the best British ingredients for a supper - but most nights dined out at one of the many ethnic restaurants in The Cut, a street 5 minutes south of Theed Street.
Only superlatives, as you can see ...
Best greetings from Copenhagen!

We arrived mid morning to an unmade-up house, but this was
rectified immediately with one phone call to the agent, The house was
perfect for the 5 of us for a week, we home cooked most of our meals
and lacked for nothing in the fully stocked kitchen, the best was being
able to walk everywhere, and there were plenty of unpretentious pubs
around the corner for a pint on the way home.
