Canary Wharf is a striking maze of shiny glass and metal set over the watery landscape of London’s docklands. The area might look like a futuristic utopia, but you can call it home in this luxurious apartment – a ten-minute walk from the tube station and the vibrant bars surrounding it. Housed in an impressive skyscraper that forms part of the ever-expanding skyline, this space is particularly suited to business travellers. Inside, the decor of the flat is minimalist yet extremely high-end. We love the light from the floor-to-ceiling windows, making the apartment feel wonderfully bright and airy. And with your own private balcony space so high up off the ground, spend an evening at sunset with a tumbler of whisky in hand as you gaze out to incredible views. Residents in this building also have access to a spectacular range of amenities and communal spaces. Start the morning by sweating it out in the on-site gym, followed by a day co-working in the lounge, then an evening in the cinema room. And while you’re busy, let the staff take care of your laundry and pet-sitting needs.
Home truths: * This home is a serviced apartment, rather than a traditional lived-in space, and a concierge service is available in the building 24/7
* As the balcony here is very high up, it's not suitable for children
* If you'd like to make use of the large communal dining area in the building, it requires pre-booking
*Laundry, dry cleaning, and pet-sitting are all available for extra fees
*Pets are more than welcome, but you need to let the host know in advance for approval and also pay a monthly fee of £80 per pet
* As the host manages multiple similar homes in the same building, you may be homed in an apartment with a slightly different layout to what's pictured (or on a different floor)
