South Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Luxurious Apartment

Beautiful apartment on the lower ground floor with your own front door in the elegant entrance hallway of a grand Georgian House, very quiet and private and exceptionally safe. Outside patio with table and chairs. It is possible to leave the bedroom doors (which open onto the patio) open all day and night, it is that safe! Super large bathroom with underfloor heating,large bath and walk in power shower. A spacious dressing room with lots of hanging space.The dressing room seperates the two bedrooms. Fully fitted kitchen with a Panasonic music system. Sitting room with dining table and chairs for 6 persons. An L shaped sofa system which is large enough to sleep an extra person if necessary. 42 ' 3D Plasma tv, with Freeview cable tv (100's of channels). Coal effect fire within the fireplace. Very atmospheric room. A most romantic apartment for a couple but also perfect for families. This is like having your own personal hotel suite in London, warm and cozy in winter, cool and welcoming in summer.

Added attractions within the area are:- swimming in summertime in the Hyde Park serpentine lake, there is also a private and safe little play area and paddling pool for toddlers and little ones, as well as a great adventure playground for the older child in Holland Park. Barnes wetlands is also close by (15 minute bus ride), this is a bird-watchers paradise, you would never dream you were so close to London. Kew Gardens is 20 mins by tube. Wining and Dining in the most exclusive of restaraunts or casual cafes and picnics in the park. Boris bicycles everywhere, this is the best way to see the parks. Roller blading also in Kensington Gardens near the Albert Memorial statue, this is a meeting place for the keen roller bladers to show off their skills. Horse riding in Hyde Park from stables just the other side of the park in Bayswater. Little Venice canal boats, will take you to Camden for a different shopping experience. Portobello Road is a must on a Friday or Saturday, not just for antique collectors, it is a wonderful day out for all the family and you cannot fail to enjoy the atmosphere.

Excellent and safe location

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful and very safe location, close to metro. Apartment itself has an awkward configuration with guests in second bedroom needing to pass through main bedroom to their own room as well as bathroom. Manager was very responsive to emails before arrival and during stay--very cooperative and easy to work with. Living room and eating area were nice---plenty of light, especially for a below ground unit.

une semaine à Londres

  • 5 of 5

Louer un appartement à l'étranger par Internet, ce n'est pas compliqué mais il faut faire confiance. Suite à cette expérience, je peux donc témoigner que la propriétaire, Yvonne, est très gentille, et de confiance, et que nous avons été ravis de notre séjour.

Les photos de l'appartement correspondent bien, ainsi que le descriptif de l'appartement.

L'appartement (très confortable) est situé dans un quartier chic (belles maisons blanches, ferronneries noires, à proximité d'une place arborée) près d'une station de métro (Gloucester Road) située sur deux lignes desservant les points stratégiques du Centre de Londres (la Circle Yellow line et la Picadilly line).

L'autobus 74 depuis Knighbridge (Harrods) s'arrête très près également (utiliser la Travel card/Oyster comme pass).

Très proche d'Hyde Park, Holland Park, et de nombreux musées.

Grand supermarché (Waitrose) , à la sortie du métro. Restaurants proches également.

C'est un appartement en sous-sol, mais les fenêtres des deux chambres et du séjour donnent sur une courette (mur d'un étage seulement sur trois côtés, donc clarté, et sécurité également).

Nous y retournerons avec plaisir,

Lovely flat in one of the best locations in London

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this property. It is a basement apartment without an elevator requiring that luggage down be carried down a flight of stairs--but it was not a problem for us. Apartment feels spacious and enjoys a lovely outdoor garden off of the bedrooms. Location is A+++++ we were within walking distance to the park, area museums, starbucks, restaurants, and waitrose. Furnishings are well appointed (as photos show) and owner (Eve) was very helpful/professional. Would highly recommend for couples or small families.

Warm & Cosy flat in lovely area

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay in Eve's apartment. It was warm and cosy and Eve was there to meet us on our arrival and available at all times for any queries during our 9 day stay. As the apartment is below ground, it would be a little difficult for some to get their luggage up & down but not a problem for us. Our correspondence with Eve before our arrival was great and nothing was a problem.

Gloucester Rd station was just around the corner and we were able to walk everywhere. The Waitrose supermarket next to the station was very handy and had good quality food and everything we needed. Also was able to walk to the V&A museum and Natural History Museum. Next time we come to London we will be in touch with Yvonne again. Thank you.

Lovely Well-Appointed Flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat is just as described and pictured. Very nicely appointed, and everything is good quality. The appliances in the kitchen are top of the line, and my friend and I were very comfortable. There is a very nice dressing room that separates the two bedrooms, and the patio allows lots of light into this basement flat. Yes, the stairs are a bit narrow, but that was a minor issue. Yvonne was very helpful and friendly, and the area can't be beat. There is a Waitrose and other shops, restaurants, and pubs a five-minute walk of the flat. There is plenty to do within walking distance, but central London is a short tube ride away. I highly recommend this lovely rental.

Great flat in South Kensington

  • 5 of 5

After a long, tiring flight from Toronto we really appreciated that Yvonne had arranged for a car to meet us at the airport. Yvonne, a most friendly and helpful person, met us at the flat to give us the keys and a quick explanation about it. The flat was neat, clean, well appointed with all the necessities and absolutely charming. There was more than enough room for my wife, daughter and I too 'spread out' and not be in each others' way. There are plenty of drawers, shelves and hanging space and we were pleased to find soap, shampoo and cream rinse in the bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the 'hobbit hole' of a second bedroom (as Yvonne called it) was perfect for our daughter. The flat is just steps away from shops, restaurants and the tube. But if you enjoy walking as our family does, a brisk 45 minute walk takes you to central London. Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, Albert Hall, the Victoria & Albert Museum are almost around the corner. There were two minor problems that we encountered but found that Yvonne was quick to take action and neither was of major consequence. The only issue that prospective guests should be away of is that this is a basement flat and there is a narrow set of stairs to be negotiated. We would most definitely stay at this flat when next visiting London.
