We are a canadian/german family and this is our holiday home in London.

Silvia purchased this apartment in 2009

This sought after locaion in South Kensington is conveniently located for easy transport in/out of Heathrow airport, both via underground or by car.

The Hyde Park and museums are within walking distance. Restaurants and pubs, supermarket and lots of other neighbourhood shops and cafes are just around the corner. The Saturday Framersmarket of South Ken is in walking distance.

For serious shoppers the Kings Road and Harrods Department Store, Harvey Nicholls and surrounding designer boutiques are all in easy walking distance.

Other London attractions such as the many museums, galleries or markets like Portobello, Soho, the theatres of the Westend or the Old Vic can also be quickly and easily reached via taxi or the bus / underground.

We love the generous sense of space of our apartment, it is comfortable and inviting to truly feel at home in this busy cosmopolitan city. We have enough space to share a social week end, entertain or to enjoy some relaxation time. We love the location as we have many friends in this part of the city and many from elsewhere are converging here and meeting up. This part of London is so convenient for everywhere to get to with minimal effort, be it on foot, public transport, bicycle or by car. There are so many places to quickly get to and amuse yourself; nothing has to be a big trip or effort. Shopping, jogging at Hyde Park or going to the gym down the road, sightseeing, gallery visits; going out at night to restaurants or theatre etc. every outing is just so easy when you are in a central location like this.

Lovely Flat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 18, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
What a wonderful flat in a great location. It was well furnished and very clean. There are some nice places to eat in the neighborhood. Its only a short walk to Kensington Gardens.And its only 4 blocks to the Tube. We would stay again in a heart beat!
Owner's Response: Dear Annette, thank you so much for your kind review. I am pleased you enjoyed our flat, I have tried to create a welcoming ambience as much for us as our guests. Thank you too for the comment on the cleanliness which is very important to us and serves as a good feedback to our property management. As well, the short walk to the tube station is not to be dismissed, especially with a busy visitors' schedule. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to be able to host you both again on your next visit to London. Best Wishes Silvia

Fabulous luxury Kensington apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We stayed in this glorious apartment for a week in September 2013. The photos are exactly representative of the first floor apartment - except that they can't give the on-the-ground feel of the comfortable sofa, the luxury bedding and mattress, and the overall feeling of well-being and congratulations that you feel for having decided to rent this oasis of quiet and elegance. The location is wonderful, for both on-foot exploration of Chelsea, Kensington, Holland Park, the Victoria and Albert, and Notting Hill, as well as access to two nearby tube stops. We walked miles every day - a couple in their mid-sixties - and then retreated to our relaxing "home" in the evening. Silvia is very responsive, answers questions promptly, and truly wants you to love this London second home that she has created. Property management, who met us upon arrival with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers, was professional and attentive. The apartment was spotlessly clean. Highly recommended!

We would rent the apartment again

  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Silvia, We had a very good time in Londom and we all enjoyed the apartment and our new neighborhood for the week. We got through the alarm problem only by me cutting some wires which I tried to avoid.. The only suggestion I would make is to instruct the local agents how to turn the alarm off or put a little note in your book. But putting that aside, we would certainly rent the apartment again and recommend it to friends. Thanks so much and I will watch for the refund. Kindest regards

Hi Silvia Thanks for your email. On Friday we arrived at the same time as the greeter Didi. The flat was prepared beautifully, with fresh flowers, wine and fresh milk, thank you for that it was lovely. Didi did show us the alarm, tv and where the washing machine was when we asked. The flat is comfortable, and beautifully decorated and spacious. We are enjoying our stay immensely.
Best Regards

Exactly as we expected

  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Dear Silvia, Thank you for your greeting and the welcoming flowers and bottle of wine. The apartment is exactly as we expected it to be.
The greeter did arrive on time and was very pleasant. However she seemed to be in a hurry to get away and it was up to us to ask her how the various appliances worked, such as the dishwasher, the stove and the washing machine.
After reading your very helpful booklet, we searched in the kitchen, we have found the instructions folder in one of the kitchen cupboards and we have had no trouble in operating all the appliances.
You do have a lovely apartment, and having previously stayed in Kensington (at the Ashburn Hotel) we are familiar and comfortable with the area. Regards,
