We love living in the Hampton Court area with its easy access to London and we think

its a great base for an interesting and varied holiday

Some of the benefits of the property are easy access to London, riverside walks, fantastic local history with Hampton Court Palace on the doorstep,

great local shopping, restaurants, walks by the Thames or the Royal Parks. The flat has been the subject of a total makeover and has views of the river from the balcony.

VERY IMPRESSED, EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 6 weeks from March 3 until April 13 then were back for four nights in May. We were met on arrival by the owner Robin. He was very helpful and personable. The fresh flowers were a nice touch. Robin has a binder full of helpful information placed in the apt. We had a problem with the iron and he promptly replaced it.

The apt was exactly as described, with very modern decor and appliances. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. The apt was very clean.

It is very conveniently located, with a Tesco store literally around the corner. The 461 bus stop located beside Tesco has 30 minute service. It was about 5 minutes to Hampton Court train station by bus and 15 minutes to Kingston. The trip by train from Hampton Court to Waterloo was about 35 minutes and the trains run every 30 minutes.

There is a great view of the Thames from the apt. and a path and park steps from the front door. It took me about 30 minutes to walk to Hampton Court along the Thames path.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
My husband I travel full-time internationally. We use VRBO and Home Away most of the time, so we really appreciate an excellent property. The place is beautifully designed, has good equipment, is clean and well-kept and the location is just terrific. Waterloo station is a pleasant 25-minute train ride away, but living near Hampton Court Palace close to the River Thames is a special treat. It's country living with one of the world's greatest cities handy. We loved watching the traffic on the river and seeing the beautiful sunsets from our little balcony. Since it's on the top floor we found it extremely quiet and restful.
There is a huge market just steps away and secure underground parking, which is a bonus. The owner is extremely responsive and helpful.
We recommend this apartment to our own friends and family without reservation.

EVEN WITH KIDS- PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Just can't say enough about the hospitality and effort! We arrived when the roads were shut down for Olympic biking events- thankfully the owner was gracious to really help us navigate our way in. The place is well stocked and located in a really great corner of the London suburbs- felt completely safe walking at night with my 7 yr old. Super fun things to do right near by- and buses/train close, too. All appliances work fantastic- super clean -and place is just so easy. Hope we make it back some day.

PERFECT APARTMENT WHILE EXPLORING LONDON AND SURROUNDING COUNTRYSIDE

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin? I had booked this flat for earlier this year and had to cancel for family reasons. I found myself on a last-minute trip to Ireland and was not enjoying it. I decided to contact Robin again and see if he had an opening for the flat, and he did (the only week available for weeks before and after). He met me at the Hampton Court station and drove me to the flat, and at the end of my stay, picked me up and drove me back to the station. I cannot say enough about how kind he is. The flat is exactly as described, really lovely and very convenient. Right next door to Tesco, post office and bus stop. It is so quiet - unlike any flat or hotel room you would have in London. You can walk along the Thames river path to the train station, which was wonderful, especially with the British Olympic rowing team practicing and all the waterbirds. Kingston is just 35 minutes from central London without any train changes. Hampton Court is a 30 minute walk. I had a lovely time and would recommend this flat to anyone.

FABULOUS TIME IN HAMPTON COURT

  • 5 of 5
Robin was wonderful! The flat is perfectly located in Hampton Court with the Tesco right behind the flat. The flat has been remodeled beautifully. We are a family of four with 2 teenagers and they were very happy with the flat as well. Will highly recommend to our friends. Great location for jumping on the train up to London or to drive to Salisbury/Stonehedge/etc.

DELIGHTFUL VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the apartment for 3 months and were very comfortable. The description of the apartment and location was very accurate and even better than expected. Elegantly designed, light and airy, and clean. We loved looking out of the balcony windows and seeing all the activity on the tow path, walkers, runners, dogs, bicyclists, boats including rowing teams on the river, and of course numerous ducks and swans. I also enjoyed walking along the path to Hampton Court, passing a cafe where you could get a free croissant with your hot drink, and watching boats cross through the locks. It was a real plus to have Tesco supermarket a few feet away with a great selection of foods. The owner Robin was very warm, helpful with advice and arrived within minutes if there was a problem. It was also pleasant when we had opportunities to meet his wife Stephanie.

The walk to Hampton Court station took about 30 minutes and the trains ran every 30 minutes and took 35 minutes to arrive in Waterloo station where you could transfer to the tube or walk to your destination. We would buy a day pass when we took the train and found out that the price included all rides on tube or buses taken on that day. We also liked to walk the tow path to Hampton Court then continue in the quiet park behind the palace all the way to Kingston (farmers markeys, big stores) which added another 40 minutes. There are also many bus routes to choose from, one leaving from outside Tescos and another from a couple of blocks away which takes the Oyster card. All this one can research quite easily on the internet or in folders available in the apartment.

My daughter and 13 year old granddaughter came to stay for 2 weeks but we decided to rent another place for them. We were fortunate that Robin also had an apartment available in his own home, 5 minutes away for this apartment and this worked out admirably. Granddaughter, an avid horsewoman, was delighted to find Park Lane Stables a short bus trip away where she could take rides.

We would definitely recommend 51 Aits View to everybody.
