About Ray Ackrim

I am from Hong Kong. I settled in London in 1999. I bought this apartment with my husband in 2001.

I used to work as an accountant and now am a full time mother.

I have two lovely boys (7 and 10). They are a handful.

I love London. I grew up in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a great city, but it does not have the sense of space and the variety of night-life you get in London.

We bought the flat for quite a few reasons;

1. The area is great, its very central, it's so close to many great sites in London. Hyde Park is only 5 minutes walk away.

Hyde Park is an enormous park, its got a a lovely lake called the Serpentine.

2. Food. We love Chinese food. Queensway, in Bayswater has got some amazing restaurants in it. It also has a huge range of other types of foods there (Greek, Thai, Lebanese).

3. Transport. Its so easy to get around London. The underground is just 5 minutes away. London Heathrow is only 15 minutes away by train, to Paddington railway.

4. Shopping. The great shops on Oxford street (the West End), Marble Arch

5. Finally, the flat is lovely. It's really big and bright. It's very spacious and it has a small patio garden.

We lived there for many happy years.

We had our two children there.

We now live about 5 minutes drive away.

Ray Ackrim purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Ray Ackrim chose Bayswater

I bought this property as I had always dreamed of living in central London.

Bayswater is as central as you want. It has a great vibe and is located in urban Bo Ho chic of Portobello and the wide open spaces of Hyde Park.

What makes this apartment unique

Great Central location, very close to Hyde Park

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ray

Sorry it has taken me the last few days to catch up on emails.

We had a wonderful stay at your place Paddington is a fabulous area so easy to get around and the architecture as well as being able to walk to Kensington gardens was great

Having the little courtyard to sit in was a bonus.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your place for staying in London

Regards

John

Just what we had in mind...

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very comfortable for two couples. We enjoyed the large dining table. The kitchen was very clean and well equipped. We had problems with the t.v. ..our e mail was answered quickly and problem solved. The cab service recommended for our pick up in London and return to the airport were prompt, well priced and professional. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants...also to Paddington Station which made it easy to get everyplace we wanted to go.

Great flat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this flat for 3 nights. We were 2 adult couples and enjoyed our stay. The flat is exactly as depicted in the pictures, very nice. There was a nice large refrigerator and the flat was very clean. Ray responded to mails both before and during our stay very promptly. We couldn't figure out how to use the oven and he emailed us promptly. The location was perfect, it was easy to get to everything There is a very nice grocery store inside Paddington station where we purchased food, and several wine shops and small stores nearby. If the weather was nicer we would have enjoyed using the lovely patio. The steps leading down into the flat are very steep. There is a handrail and we notified Ray that either the outside light was burned out or we didn't know how to turn it on! Ray recommended a car service to get us to/from Heathrow and they were very efficient and prompt (also cheaper than the Paddington Express). One thing I would recommend is a nonslip bath mat for the master bathtub as it was slippery, but the shower was great! We would definitely stay here again and if we have friends going to London we will recommend this flat to them.

Great Location!!

  • 4 of 5

Ray and Mubi were such responsive owners to this spacious flat in the Paddington area of central London. We needed to store our luggage on both ends of our trip and were granted this convenience. The flat was in a great location for our family as we were visiting our daughter who is studying in London only a few tube stops away. The property was clean, provided plenty of space for our family of four and the amenities (wifi, laundry, blow dryer) were most appreciated. We would definitely recommend to others!

An easy way to see London

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four (adults) really enjoyed this spacious, bright apartment. There was ample room and had it been warmer, we would have loved to use the little patio. Well equipped kitchen, a small shop nearby to buy some food; comfortable beds, high ceilings. Master bath has been updated and the furnishings are modern. We ate dinner only a few blocks away, at a great Greek place. The proximity to Paddington Station anda Hop-on Hop-off Bus stop made it a wonderful location. We would come back!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My six friends and I stayed three nights in this London apartment, and we could not have been happier with the accommodations. The location was perfect, right next to beautiful Hyde Park. The walk to Paddington Station (a primary metro stop) was only 5 minutes away, making for easy travel throughout the city to anywhere we wanted to go. Because there were enough of us to split the cost, however, we often felt that cabs were even cheaper than the metro. We were always able to hail a cab easily right out in front of the property. The property was also close to a very nice street with plenty of restaurants, pubs, and grocery stores. This made it easy to stay close to home at night if we were tired from being tourists all day.

The property comfortably slept all of us, and the living space was more than adequate for us to all relax together for meals, etc. The apartment was clean and well-equipped for daily living. We all agreed it was one of the nicer apartments we've stayed in, and we've traveled a great deal throughout Europe together.

Ray was very good about responding to e-mails both before, during, and after our stay. We had no issues at all with customer service.

All in all, this was a very pleasant stay for us. We wouldn't have changed a thing, and we would all highly recommend this place for others visiting London. We were just sorry to leave our temporary home in such a beautiful city. Thank you for everything!
