Overview

Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This pretty flat is set in a smart, white-fronted period property in a quiet street near Holland Park. Decorated with floral prints and pretty pictures, it has a traditional English character and warm ambiance.

Unusually, the Kensington has its own book collection so you can curl up with a novel on its cosy sofas after a day’s sight-seeing.

The Kensington has excellent transport connections making it the perfect base for exploring London

This flat is located on a quiet one-way street lined with oak trees in Kensington & Chelsea in central London. A traditional British pub is on the street and two fine restaurants are just one minute away.

The Royal Borough has many bars, trendy cafes and markets. Westfield London, a new billion pound shopping complex, is nearby. The area is a centre of live music, especially at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate, Portobello Market and High Street Kensington are only a 10 minute stroll away. You can walk to Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace within 15 minutes. You can easily reach the West End and other parts of London via the local tube stations.

The Kensington on Elsham Road

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip overseas didn't begin well. We rented a flat through the internet that was deplorable and refused to stay there. Fortunately, we came across Liz and Carl's rentals the following day. They did everything they could to make up for the first flat on a day's notice. Carl accomodated us with every request we had. His assistant, Nellie, met us at the apartment and oriented us to the area. The apartment was clean and perfect for myself, my husband and two adult daughters. The location was an easy tube ride to London and had everything we needed right in the area. Thank you Carl, Liz and Nellie. Your apartment was wonderful to come home to at the end of a long day exploring the incredible city of London.

Our rental with Carl & Liz started off horrible - not because of anything Carl & Liz did! To make a long story short, their email account was hacked and all my email transactions regarding renting their property were actually occurring with a criminal who stole the money I paid to hold our reservation. I decided to call the phone number associated with the property and talked to Carl. He was so helpful and truly sorry that we had been swindled. That was the start of the GREAT service we received from Carl.

The property we were originally interested in was not available so he provided us with another one of his properties close to the same area. The location was perfect for our family of 4 (we have 10 & 13 year olds). Close to groceries, close to bus/tube. Nelly met us at the flat and gave us great info on what to do and where to go. She even purchased Oyster cards for us so we could hop right on a bus and start sightseeing. Carl called us the first day and answered all of our questions. He even tried to find us tickets to a sold out show at the Royal Ballet.

We would definitely stay with Carl & Liz again. And I would strongly suggest that anyone using VRBO for booking should CALL the phone number listed with the VRBO listing FIRST - then you can converse via email.

Very positive

  • 5 of 5

Liz and Carl provided exactly what we were hoping for: an opportunity to live in a neighbor setting, use neighborhood stores and restaurants. In addition they really do what they advertise, that is, they provide more than a key. They oriented us. Told us where to catch the bus which would take us to all the places we planned on visiting. They also made additional suggestions which were excellent.

A great homebase

  • 4 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed at the Kensington for 10 nights and found it to be an excellent home base. It is roomy and well equipped. Is is very central and close to many options for tube and buses. The bedrooms are quiet- which is great if you are getting over jet lag. We always felt safe walking back from to the flat from the tube or bus stop. It is very close to a major mall and there are many choices for groceries and restaurants within a few minutes. This was nice, as after a busy day full of sightseeing or day trips it was easy to stock up on groceries or have a meal on the way back to the flat. Carl was very helpful with any issue that came up and was genuinely concerned that our stay be a memorable one.

Great Flat for a Good Price

  • 5 of 5

If you need to be in the Marble Arch area, as my mom did, this is the place for you. Nice amenities, just a few minutes walk to the Tube. Lots of stores around for grocery shopping so you don't have to haul your goods around. There were also several choices for car rentals close by so renting in the morning, taking a day trip into the country and returning that evening (why mess with the parking, right?) was easy. Carl and Liz were great to work with and very accommodating when we wanted to extend our stay. We will definitely be giving them a call the next time we're in London.
