Making flats Fizzy

We've been helping people find and enjoy apartments in and around London since 2012. From the start, we didn’t want to do things by halves. And today, even aside from our vast selection (we now have over 750 apartments across Canning Town, Epsom, Poplar, Stepney Green, Walthamstow, Lewisham, Hayes and East16), we’re still setting the trends in renting.

That’s why our flats have BOBs, WiFi included, flexible leases, free spring cleans and more. And with more developments in the pipeline, the Fizzy story’s still bubbling along nicely.
