This 5-star review came from a guest from Washington, USA -
'I cannot tell you absolutely perfect the accommodations were...... (Your caretaker) was so amazing and nice.....the location could not have been more amazing..... Quiet, clean, and close to everything you could want to do in London .....your flat really made my first trip to Europe and the UK that much more enjoyable. It was fantastic!'
THIS is the perfect London base for your visit - - a cool yet cosy, HUGE (for London, over 900 sq ft/ 100 sq meters) space in a great location. Completely charming flat on first floor (2nd to US guests) of period building overlooking glorious Bishops Park (Google it!) in Fulham. Sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, big sofas for 2 more. PLEASE NOTE to reach flat from lobby there are 18 quite high steps up, landing break in middle, sorry, no lift/elevator
WHY STAY IN FULHAM?
Fulham is an 'inner 'burb', an upscale, safe neighbourhood just 4 miles (in straight line) from Marble Arch, close enough to enjoy the sights but far enough away for a little quiet time. In the immediate area is a huge park with River Thames-side walks, nice homes, good shops and restaurants.
.Keen WALKERS with enjoy the miles of River Thames towpath ....FOODIES will like walking to the award-winning River Cafe and great local pubs.... SHOPPERS will appreciate easy access - one bus ride - to the brand-new Westfield mall at Shepherds Bush, the biggest in Europe .... in 10 mins FOOTBALL FANS can stroll to Craven Cottage, home of Fulham Premier Division football club....and HISTORY BUFFS can tour nearby Bishops Palace, 16thc former home of the Bishop of London.
I'M ON BUSINESS AND NEED FAST COMMUNICATIONS .... Good news! We have free, fast and unlimited broadband with Wi Fi - max connection speed 76.7 Mbs, max upload speed 20Mbs.
IS IT NEAR HEATHROW? No close but a super-easy journey by Piccadilly Line tube to Hammersmith then quick bus or taxi ride to flat
NEAREST TUBE ? PUTNEY BRIDGE .. 10/12 min pleasant walk from flat .... BUS STOPS 4-8 mins walk from flat ... total door-to-door journey time to Central London 25/60 minutes depending of traffic/crowds.
INSIDE THE FLAT... high ceilings, plenty of light and original features in 900 sq ft/30 sq m. The main bedroom has a Euro king (160cm/60 ins wide) bed, large wardrobe & pretty non-working fireplace. The small bedroom has a single (90cm) bed and French doors onto a small balcony with cafe table and two chairs overlooking tennis courts and park. There is also an inflatable bed for 4th person up to 5ft 2'/158 cm. plus two big sofas.
There's a brand-new flat-screen tv and a VHS (yes, VHS!) player with tape library .
Super- high-speed WI-FI is free!
Our favourite room, as big as many apartments! If you're planning a long stay, especially with kids, size really matters. Table and Conran chairs for six, a Bosch dishwasher, washing machine and dryer plus microwave etc.
CHILD-FRIENDLY ... but not CHILD-PROOF!
We have a young son who has left some toys and books for our tiniest guests... our new boiler means you wont run out of hot water at bathtime!
Well-behaved children are most welcome and of course the park provides a big attraction - but please note the flat isn't child-proofed and guests are responsible for keeping their little ones - and our property - safe from harm.
CENTRAL HEATING Yes !
SORRY - NO SMOKING OR PETS
