Overview

South Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Greece is the word

Cradle of civilization

Here’s a home so warm, welcoming and well-connected that we wouldn’t be surprised if it gave rise to a heroic couplet or two. Generations of history are on show - the honeyed parquet floors, the antiquarian books and the original fireplace. With views out into the garden square, there’s a real sense of tranquillity to this listed home - its high ceilings ensure that while the space is grand it never for a moment feels stuffy. You’re close to the museums and Hyde Park, while for shops, bars and restaurants, look to Kensington High Street and Knightsbridge.

Living legend

Your host is from Greece. An itinerant professor, he’s currently based at the London Business School, but, like all the best heroes, he’s widely travelled. He now splits his time between London, Athens, New York, and Kea, where his desk overlooks the wine-dark expanses of the Aegean.

Myth and mystery

Intellect and pulchritude combine in this home’s expansive sitting room. Rich leather, pre-Columbian pottery and original artwork compliment the room’s gracious proportions and abundant light. The dining table seats four in front of the huge bay window, and the sofa transforms into a double bed. Next door, the kitchen’s well equipped, its walls are a-glow in sunset orange. The master bedroom has a stately atmosphere, its king-sized bed framed in leather, while, with its natural stone tiles, walk-in shower and mirrored walls, the ensuite resembles a luxury spa. There’s a second shower room for guests, with delicately mosaicked walls, and of course, a stash of our gorgeous White Company toiletries.

London odyssey

Exploring the city has never been easier, for you’re within walking distance of many of the main attractions. Marvel at the artefacts on show at the V&A, sun yourself in Hyde Park, and then indulge in a little bacchanalian excess in the bars and restaurants of Kensington and Knightsbridge. The journey from Earls Court to Piccadilly Circus takes a mere twelve minutes.

About Owner / Property Manager

onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose South Kensington

Mention South Kensington and most Londoners get a vivid, albeit contrasting, picture of a centre of learning and top-end shopping in their minds. But it is this amalgam that lends the area its charm.

Distending from the tube station to the museum quarters on Cromwell Road/Exhibition Road and the graceful streets and private gardens in between, South Ken packs in moon rocks at the Science Museum and rock oysters at the Bibendum bar in an effortless swoop.

The museums (V&A, Natural History, Science Museum and Baden-Powell House) form part of the heritage from the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Exploring all the nooks and crannies of these institutions would take months, and require the spirit of the intrepid Victorian explorers who brought home many of the treasures here, but even a quick dip in the tapestry-hung walkways of the V&A or a gaze at how small the lander that brought Armstrong and Aldrin to the moon really is at the Science Museum, provides enough stimulation to last a whole day.

The streets around the tube are booby-trapped with touristy eateries, so for more sensory stimulation, aim for the recently named Brompton Road Design District with destination shops like Skandium, Squint, Mint and B&B Italia, before ducking into Daphne's on Draycott Avenue for Sardini Grigliati and a glass of prosecco.

What makes this apartment unique

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.

Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.

Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.

And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
