Loved this place!

We stayed here in the end of August 2011 (couple in our 40s, kids 9&7 and 80 year old granny).
The pictures were very accurate and the house was lovely with books and art. It was very spacious and clean with a great kitchen and modern bathroom facilities. The family room was amazing with a full wall of windows that opened fully to a lovely garden (felt like we were outside). The location could not be better with wonderful stores & restaurants all within a very easy walking distance. It was on a quiet residential street where we felt very safe. The Tube stations were about a 10 minute healthy walk ... but we actually enjoyed the neighborhood so much, we found much more to do than expected in a 5 minute walking radius!
The owners were very good at communicating details in advance. The reservation process was simple and the house had everything we expected ... and more. The kitchen had lots of unexpected benefits and the owners provided a lot of little conveniences within their house. The wireless access was very convenient and there was a large modern entertainment center in the famly room. We were very very pleased with the experience.
If I had to find something negative about the place ... the only comment I can make was that there was a lot of stairs. This was not a problem for myself, husband or two kids. It was a bit challenging for my 80 year old mom who walks with a cane. The living room is on the main floor ... and you must go down a flight of steep stairs to get to the kitchen/family room. You need to go up one or two flights of steep stairs depending on what bedroom you are heading to. This would not be a good rental for anyone with balance or walking issues. We knew about the stairs in advance from the owners, but thought it was worth mentioning here.
