Hello. We live in London with two of our girls who go to school here. Our oldest daughter goes to school in Pamplona, Spain. We own many flats in London and rent them out to people from all around the world. London seems to be on everyone's agenda to visit. One visit is never enough! We enjoy meeting our guests and making their stay memorable. We are available most of the day to take care of any problems that might arise.

We chose to buy a vacation rental in London simply because we fell in love with the city. We realized that renting a flat with a family of 5 was very practical and much better than being in a small hotel room. We decided to look into other flats and this is how our business grew. This particular flat is on a lovely street lined with beautiful white period mansion blocks. Hyde Park is 5 minutes away. Paddington Station is a few minutes away. There is no commercial activity on this street so it's quiet at night. If you like to walk, Oxford street is a 15-20 minute walk.

This flat is in a superb location. The street has no commercial activity and it's lined with the most beautiful white period mansion blocks. We love to walk and own a dog so having Hyde Park so close is wonderful! For a theatre night out we can catch the tube at the Paddington Station moments away. The flat is very large and can accommodate our family of five easily. It has one full bathroom and a powder room with loo, very handy when you have kids. There is wireless in the flat which keeps everyone happy.

VERY DECRIPTIVE AND ACCURATE

  • 5 of 5
My son and I had a great stay in this two-bedroom flat. Very well located just north of Hyde Park, and close to Paddington Station. Very comfortable, quiet, and clean. Very easy to communicate with the managers, and they were very helpful to us. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a nice-size, well-located flat in Central London.

Our stay was 14 days over the Christmas holiday and found this apartment very comfortable with all the amenities. We cooked all our breakfasts and 6 dinners including roast turkey on Christmas Day. We enjoyed relaxing in the spacious living room in the evenings after full days of seeing the sights.
Enjoy your stay - Bret & Sally

VERY NICE APARTMENT IN GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is quite spacious and in an excellent location - 5 minute walk to the tube and to Hyde Park. Paddington Station is also very close and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms so can comfortably fit 2-3 people. The living room is on the street so a little bit noisy but the bedrooms are nice and quiet.

GREAT LOCATION - MANY FLAWS

  • 3 of 5
Location is great, but a few flaws. Kitchen is not very well equipped. There is a phone number, but no phone, we had to send an email to get a phone. The front entry door slams so loudly and you do not get used to it. The street is busy and noisy. We had to turn the tv up several times just to hear it. Wifi is not throughout the flat, only in the bedrooms at the back of the flat. No one at the property when we arrived and we waited almost 45 minutes before someone arrived. Luckily there were workmen in the flat above and let us in to wait inside the hallway. Shoes off at the front door because of white carpet (who puts white carpet in a rental flat?), but no mat to stand on and no where to put your shoes once you take them off. Beware of car service. You pay for the return to the airport and it is very costly. We had tube tickets we could have used had we known about it. Never once did we see or meet the owners. They were supposed to come by and never did. While we loved the location of this flat, I would not stay here again.

PERFECT PAD IN PADDINGTON

  • 5 of 5
Just finishing up a great week in London with my family (husband and 2 children). Carl, Liz and Nelly were very helpful and made our stay very smooth. We arrived at the airport to find there was a problem with the apartment we rented due to the condition the previous guests left it in, however Carl quickly found a great alternative in a neighboring suburb. It was all handled very professionally and we were in and comfortable in an even better apartment than we had originally booked, before we knew it. The apartment itself is on a lovely quintessential Paddington street, lined with white Victorian apartment buildings. There is a little traffic as the street is a bit of a thoroughfare, but nothing that is too noisy, and it makes it easy to get a taxi in a hurry. The bedrooms face a quiet residential back yard environment so are very quiet. It's very close to a couple of handy Tube stations and the larger hub of Paddington Station. Hyde Park, Portobello Road and Oxford Street are all within walking distance. There are a number of good pubs and restuarants within 2 to 3 minute walk of the apartment. Inside, the apartment is quite roomy and fit our family of four easily. It could comfortably accommodate at least another couple, as there is ample extra bedding in the apartment - fold out single bed and futon. The amenities are all modern and work well, and the heating which is important in late October, works a treat. The little extra touches Carl and Liz provide such as red wine in the apartment to greet us, mobile phones for local calls, a lap top in the apartment, shopping to stock up the pantry and fridge for your arrival, maps and travel guides to London in the bookshelf, are all greatly appreciated. And there was always a prompt reply to emails with requests for information on good local restaurants, location of supermarkets etc. Would definitely recommend this apartment, the location, and Carl and Liz to take care of you - they really do provide more than just a set of keys!

A GREAT STAY AT A GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Liz and Carl and the team truly make your experience simple and efficient. We arrived late and they arranged to have someone pick us and transport us to the flat. As well, they arranged to have groceries in the flat which was just a great touch! The flat is centrally located so very close to multiple tube lines and Hyde Park. Several times we simply just went for a walk in Hyde Park and just enjoyed this location. There are many places to eat close to this location as well. The flat was clean, well maintained and made our stay truly more enjoyable.

The services provided by Liz and Carl and the team made a big difference for us. Multiple times during our stay, they either made themselves available to answer questions or in one case even helped to arrange transportation. Truly amazing service! I would gladly stay here again!
