We only have 3 points to cover I’m afraid.
1. The property for us was very comfortable, very clean and well equipped for a small basement flat. The bathroom was clean, more than enough hot water and water pressure, lots of clean linen. The kitchen very spacious and well equipped - all the cooking/dining utensils, washing machine, iron & board, a safe for your valuables. Wonderful! Also a nice large window that made the apartment bright. Secure double front entry doors.
For a couple, 3-4 adults or a couple with smaller children, the flat fits the bill. For us (2 adults + 3 very young children) it was perfect.
2. The location - absolutely hard to beat. Literally a 5 minute walk to Harrods and shopping of Knightsbridge. Supermarkets very nearby. You could easily walk to the Natural History Museum, South Kensington and Hyde Park. The Knightsbridge Tube station is a nice 10 minutes walk and you won’t be short of buses and taxis with Brompton Road literally 2 minutes up the street. Lots of choice dining options and of course there’s the wonderful feeling of calling Knightsbridge your home for the moment. The only complaint I had was that it was too easy for my wife to go shopping!!
3. The owner/landlady. Well …. this I definitely have something to say about.
We have never met anyone who allowed a family from halfway across the world to rent and live in their private property, who is as kind and gracious as Madame Anne Marie Genette.
From the very detailed emails (prior to your arrival no less) of whats happening in London and recommended activities happening during our stay period, to making sure we had ample linen and comfort, through to patiently waiting for our very late arrival from our very long drive from the Alps (we still feel terrible for that..). Always reachable yet doesn’t interrupt your holiday at all. She truly made the stay pleasant for my family.
Would we stay at her properties again? Yes! Would we recommend her properties? Definitely.
Nous vous sommes extrêmement reconnaissants et nous vous remercions du fond du coeur Madame.
