Stayed there for two weeks in September.
The flat is very convenient and has everything a regular tourist needs after a busy day of sightseeng. The owner's description of he apartment is true and correct. The photos he made are a bit blurred so I am adding mine.

The location is great! It is in a quiet residential street on the southern bank of the Thames. Southwark tube station is about 10 minutes of unhasty walk away and walk to Borough station will take 5 minutes more.
When you walk to Southwark station you see the London Eye through the adjoining streets to your left and the Shard to the right. Both are about 20 minutes walk away.
So if it suddenly starts raining when you are somewhere near Buckingham palace you can easily return home and fetch your umbrella.

The street is so quiet that once when I went out for a smoke at about midnight I met a fox on the steps to the apartment! A real red fox! Can you imagine that? A fox in the centre of London! I didn't have time to grab my camera and take a picture as it was frightened and quickly ran away but I can swear it was a fox!

Two food shops are nearby and a popular pub opposite Southwark tube station (jammed with people in the evenings).
The flat can easily accomodate a couple or perhaps a couple with a child. For a single person it is more than spacious.
It is situated in the lower ground floor (several steps down the street level) and therefore there is a felling of dampness when you return after a day out but after all you are not going to live there till the end of your life. Perhaps I had that feeling because I never switched the heating system on as it was quite warm in London during my stay.
Another petty drawback is the rather noisy fan in the bathroom which needs replacing or at least oiling but you hear it only when you turn the light in the bathroom on.

James was quick with his answers when booking and returned the damage deposit soon after my returning home. I was met with the keys at the apartment on time specified and given all the necessary instructions.
I would not say that it is the best apartment I ever saw in my life but it is definitely very good and worth its price.
