2BR LUXURY KNIGHTSBRIDGE FLAT CLOSE TO HARRODS ON BASIL STREET

Belgravia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A charming and elegant 2 bedroom apartment conveniently situated steps away from world famous Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and all the Sloane Street and Brompton Road shops.

Thirty year London home of Hollywood composer. Perfect for one or two couples exploring London, and overlooking Basil Street with a perfect mixture of comfort and elegance. The flat is located on the first floor of Lincoln House (in the UK this is one floor up) and is accessible via steps or elevator. The closest tube stop is Knightsbridge, and the flat is located midway between the Sloane Street entrance and the Harrods entrance. Kings Road is a ten minute walk at the end of Sloane Street. The building has two porters which are available to assist with deliveries.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Not suitable for very young children.

The flat has a local phone, and also a US based phone with a California telephone number which can be used for unlimited free calls to and from the US.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Knightsbridge on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes and is a short train ride to Victoria Station, which is fifteen minutes away by cab - Bonnie Cacavas.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks in this beautiful flat... our third visit! It has every comfort and the luxury of spaciousness; and the location! A stroll to the park, marvellous shopping precincts, buses and underground. We appreciate the ease of communication with the owner and the friendly attention of the House Manager. We have recommended it to friends and are already discussing the possibility of a return visit.

CHANGED THE WAY I TRAVEL FOREVER!

  • 5 of 5
I am writing the review while still sitting in the flat.

I have never rented a place before. We have always stayed at hotels. However, having been to London a few times before I know what a nice London hotel room costs. I now have 2 teenagers and the thought of either a suite or 2 rooms sounded like a lot of money. I decided to take this route based on a friend's recommendations. We chose this particular flat for a few reasons.
1. It looked like a home and not a hotel room
2. My kids didn't have to share a bed.
3. My kids had their own room separate from ours.
4. The location.
5. 2 showers

I made exactly the right choice. The flat and building is pristine. It is beautiful. It is comfortable, quiet and feels like home. Even before I got here Bonnie is the easiest person to work with. She is more than accommodating and responds to every email very quickly.

Places we have walked to:
Royal Court Theatre
Harrods
Hyde Park
Victoria Albert Museum
Natural History Museum
Every designer store you can name is within walking distance.
Grocery store

It is just under 10Pounds to take a cab to Westminster Abby. From there the Eye, Big Bed, London Dungeon, Aquarium, Florence Nightingale museum and so much more is all right there.

Right next door is the Capitol Hotel that does what looks to be a lovely tea. We actually found a Groupon for tea a bit further away but it would have been great next door. From the front window I can see cafes and an Italian restaurant.

Knightbridge tube station is really RIGHT around the corner.

The flat its self is so comfortable. The beds are very comfortable. Coming from an area that has more cows than people I always worry about noise in a city, but the bedroom is very quiet. The kitchen is great. We cooked breakfast in every day and kept beer cold for the evening. I ordered from Waitrose online at home and the delivered for free at exactly the time I requested. A few nights we ordered delivery from just-eat.co.uk and relaxed inside after a day of sight seeing.

Having WiFi makes a big difference, especially for the girls who want to keep in touch with friends. A phone to call home was also helpful as I received a message from my credit card company concerned about fraud.

I dread having to pack and leave in another day. I just love everything about being here.

I will NEVER rent another hotel room again and I will NEVER come to London without staying here.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
The last week of my recent trip to England was spent in this remarkably comfortable flat in Knightsbridge. The flat is spacious. The entry hall is larger than many hotel rooms in London. The porter for the building, Matt, is a treasure. The flat is comfortably furnished and well-maintained. The location could not be better for walking as well as taking buses and the Tube. And Bonnie, the owner, was a delight to deal with. I couldn't be more pleased.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My sister, niece, and I stayed in this lovely bright flat in January. This conveniently located flat was comfortable, and having two bedrooms and two full baths were a definite plus for three women traveling together! The elevator was extremely useful for luggage and tired tourists and we felt safe in the flat.
The extra perks of having wifi available and a dedicated phone line to the US were much appreciated.
Ease of communication with Bonnie was excellent, and the payments, arrangements, and instructions were all clear and easy to follow.
We have previously rented homes in Hawaii,Paris, St. Martin and Rome, and this flat was the most comfortable. We would love to stay here again when we return to London.

ONE STAY IS NOT ENOUGH

  • 5 of 5
The three of us had the most fabulous stay in this most amazing flat. We felt immediately at-home: the apartment is spacious, beautifully appointed and Bonnie's instructions make it all work. Bonnie herself is very professional, helpful and accessible. And as with top quality real estate, the location is perfect. The best cherry pie we have ever eaten was only a stroll down the street to Harrod's - don't miss it. You have everything you need close at hand within the neighborhood to help you explore and enjoy London. Plans are in the works to return next year.

BEYOND OUR WILDEST EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for ten wonderful days in this spectacular flat and felt so very fortunate to have discovered it. There is great character and love within the flat and it is truly is like stepping into someone's home where your every need is taken care of. The kitchen is well equipped, the sitting room is something out of a Hollywood stage set ( glamorous And comfortable) and the bedrooms are a delight to sleep in. ( Great mattresses and bed linens)..There is besides a high powered showered a gigantic soaker tub in the master bedroom and just the thing to soak in after a long day out.
The location of the apt. is probably the most convenient and posh in all of London. ( Harrods is literally a two minute walk.I had so much fun one morning buying foodstuffs on the Harrod's food floor for a lunch that I was hosting. It is comparable in prices to Whole Foods but MUCH better.)
We mostly ate out ( Bonnie's recommendations are excellent) and opened a free on line account with Waitrose who delivered cases of water, fresh fruit, etc.
The building has a porter who was vigilant, kind and so helpful . ( Please tip him at the end of your visit. He goes above and beyond to be helpful.) To their great delight he greeted our lunch guests and showed them up to the flat, helped carry things in, packed our departure car, looked after my husband during a dizzy spell (!!!!) etc. He is also a fount of information re: the history of the area and London in general.
I visit England about twice a year to visit family in the countryside and have stayed in London on numerous occasions in wonderful places. This apartment is the Very Best !
