My apartment is the perfect location to be in the center of London but also be able to escape from the noise and bustle of a busy cosmopolitan city.

Minimum rental period 5 nights and not available for parties.
Location Location Location. Every time someone enters my living room for the first time there is an intake of breath. I literally can spit into the Thames! Its almost like living on a boat and daily I watch the River Thames rise and fall at low tide the ducks seagulls and two cormorants often stop by. The river boats plough back and forth and I often imagine those on board wonder who is the lucky person living there. On the other side of the river is the fast developing Nine Elms area with the Battersea Power station residential to the right and the new American Embassy to the left.
I simply love my apartment and I know you will to.
When I say very central I mean 15 minutes walk from The Houses of Parliament & Victoria Station or 5 min by cab or bus. Pimlico tube station is the nearest at 7 minute walk. The number 24 bus to Victoria and the West End stops right outside my door.15 min walk from Battersea Park, Kings Road Chelsea, Piccadilly and South Bank.
The main double bedroom of my apartment is ( 7m x 3m (or 22ft x 10ft ) with a spacious bathroom with bath and integrated shower. Large double wardrobes, white walls, TV, tea and coffee facilities. The bedroom is town facing but traffic noise is minimal.
The second bedroom is smaller with a double sofa bed and is ideal for one person or two if you are a cozy couple! bathroom & shower ensuite and town facing.
The living room overlooks the river , where you can serve yourselves breakfast and with two panoramic 2 meter wide windowed patio doors that slide back to allow you on to a Juliette Balcony ( standing but you can sit and sip wine as the sun sets )
Very Private and Quiet - No one over looks the apartment and facing the river the apartment is very quiet, the bedrooms face the road but good double glazing makes it a quiet nights sleep.
The whole apartment is newly decorated and carpeted and has a very light airy feel with white walls and cream carpets and an all white tiled bathroom.
There is large hallway with guest loo and the the vast living area with a very comfy Sofa bed idea for one person. There is wifi, Sky TV, Apple TV, Sonos Music System.
Large Kitchen with gas hob and electric oven and microwave, refrigerator and freezer. Gas central heating and plenty of hot water.

My name is Colin and I live in Pimlico, Westminster, Central London. For many years I used to live in South Devon having grown up in and then ran for 20 years, my own 130 bed family hotel. Growing up in a stunning coastal location on a cliff top where for much of the year the permanent neighbours were sheep and sea gulls its no surprise that when moving to London I chose to live bang in the center. First in the West End for 7 years then Marylebone for 2 but now the water is calling and I have recently moved to a stunning 2 bedroom 1349 sq ft apartment on the river Thames overlooking Vauxhall, Nine Elms and the famous Battersea Power station.
I was married for 17 years but now divorced and have 5 grown up children who still pop in to see their Dad regularly ( particularly when they want a bed for the night !) I love to travel, eat good food, spend time in good entertaining intelligent company, to dance, swim, play squash, tennis, go to museums, theatre. I enjoy people, places and things that are different and innovative even adventurous. As for my work ....
For the past 10 years I have been working as a sexual performance mentor and relationship therapist and masseur.
I’m fascinated by human sexuality. I think sex is an incredibly important part of life, but for many people, sex and sexuality are things that just happen. But when we don’t work at understanding and improving our sexual selves, a sense of unhappiness or lack of fulfilment can affect our broader sense of self.
I’ve made it my calling to teach people how to achieve better physiological and emotional sexual communication within relationships. I speak about and lead workshops on sex and sexuality, and I mentor single men, single women and couples of all sexualities on improving intimacy and sexual performance.
If staying with me then openness and broadmindedness is an asset! My motto for life is " Be who you really are not who they want you to be"
Some may be daunted by what I do for a job many are very interested, either way I am at heart a very traditional guy who simply has an non traditional job.
