About Maria

I am a female economist works in between countries. This is a flat for me to live in it. I did not intent to let it out. But, Since i started to work abroad, I thought it would be pity to keep such a nice flat empty.

Maria purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Maria chose Holland Park

This is definitely the right place to enjoy London with half price.

Very good area, very safe, Clean, Comfortable and positive, Compare to other similar properties in the area, this is very cheap. Also very relaxing and positive.

Kensington is one of the best part of London in zone 1.

What makes this apartment unique

Is the area, the Location and the transport!

I just love living here. Especially in Spring I enjoy the blossoms in the road. I love being very close to the Holland Park, the Nothing Hill, the Portobello, the royal Albert Hall etc. All are in walking distance. Every body that stayed here loved being in the flat and in the area. a female German solicitor, came to live here for 2 month and stayed 11 month until she went back to Germany. There are regular single ladies from USA and from Canada comes every year. There are several markets and shops just around the corner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Warm and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as pictured and described. Maria was there for the first 1/2 of my two week stay and she was lovely. She even asked me to contact her from the train station so she could come and collect me! I'm from a tropical clime, and was greatly impressed by the efficiency of the the indoor heat in London's mid-winter. I was there to see theatre: was at a different venue (usually in the west end) every night, returned by bus or underground after 10pm each evening - the walk back to the flat always felt safe and a rather pleasant break from the hectic inner commerce and tourist district. Food and sundry shopping is an easy 5 minute walk in any of three directions - 15 min if you need a superstore. Great stay! Would stay again.

Excellent experience in comfortable and modern West Kensington/Olympia area flat

  • 5 of 5

For my month-long visit to London, this modern, well-appointed flat with very comfortable en-suite bedroom proved to be excellent. Photos give a good idea of what it is like. Nice modern kitchen; great shower; clean and well-maintained with weekly cleaning included.

West Ken location is fine with connections via the Olympia Overground (5 mins walk away) to West Brompton tube or to parts of North London. Convenient 49 or C1 buses are 2 mins away, the 49 to High St Ken tube, about a 15 min walk from the flat. 10 to 12 min walk to Shepherd's Bush tube or buses.

Excellent local shop on the corner with a wide range of food etc at competitive prices; dry cleaner and laundry there too. Overall, highly recommended.

If you have a smart phone, upload Citymapper app. It's an excellent means of getting bus and tube info and even gives bus departure times from Holland Rd stop.

A great flat in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. I stayed here for 2 weeks with a friend and couldn't have asked for more. There are at least 4 grocery stores within walking distance on Kensington High Street and Kensington High Street was the Underground station we used daily.

Maria was a friendly and gracious host. Allowed us cupboard and refrigerator space and we could cook and wash our clothes as we pleased. She was not there for a few days, but was around for the rest of our stay. She is so kind and quiet we didn't mind her being there at all. I was worried about sharing a flat with a stranger, but this was a great experience and I would stay here again on any future visit to London!

Our Visit to London and Accomodationsw

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days at this lovely location. Private room and Bath. Very friendly and accommodating Professional owner. Several local restaurants near the location and easy access with a short walk to several underground and bus stops. If the owner is there the week of your visit she is very helpful with local information and thoroughly familiar with London. One of our most memorable and fun vacations in Europe.

It is my first experience using the homeaway. I didnt know how it works, for that I say that start wrong, because I booked by my mobile phone without read all comments. However, when I arrived at property I met Maria the best host ever. She was very gentile and receive us very very well. We do really recommend her house.
