Hello. We live in London taking care of our many rental flats. We bought this particular flat in 2005. We have been living in London for 2 years. Two of our daughters go to school here and the oldest daughter goes to school in Pamplona, Spain. Our middle daughter helps us with the business in between her schooling. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world bringing with them their customs and language. Our aim is to be available to our guests and to hopefully have them leave London with wonderful memories of their stay.

We chose this particular flat because it's on a very quiet street but so near to the tube station, Shepherd's Bush and shopping mall, Westfield. When we walked into this flat for the first time we liked the atmosphere that it gave off and the prettiness of the flat. It is in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea which is considered the best Borough in London. The street is not very long and at the end of it on Russel Gardens there are 3 restaurants to choose from one of which is the Kensington Pub. We could go our for dinner and be home in one minutes.....quite a nice feature, especially when you are tired and do not feel like hassling with the bus or tube.

This particular flat has a huge bathroom! It also has a gas fireplace which makes it cozy in the winter months. We just put down a new wooden floor throughout the flat which looks absolutely stunning. The flat is on the first floor which makes it easy to maneuver grocery bags and luggage. It's a roomy flat and very pretty.

Great week in London

  • 4 of 5
We are a family of three from Germany with a daughter of 10 and are very glad we`ve found this flat and hosts in the Internet. For us it has been very important to find a two bed non-smokers flat near by with public transport possibilities. All this is 100% given and exactly like describted in the offer and very well maintained and clean.

There are maybe lower priced flats to find but in our "holiday conclusion" we thought "the package" has been worth the Price

The flat is a few hundred meters near to tube Station "Shepards bush" what made our daily actions comfortable. There are several supermarkets near the tube on the way to the flat. We used also a near by Iranian Restaurant that has been very delicious.

The hosts are very helpful with lots of emails and upfront orgenisation things on short notice via mail and even phone if wished and we never had problems to contact them or get an answer (even in german language from Carl if needed) . In cases we needed information or help we also had the chance to ask Nelly - she reacted very quick and helpful
In case of lack of knowledge on our side e.g. using their offered ways of payment correctly, they accept a lot of mails from us asking maybe silly things without complaining and with a "twinckling eye" comment that makes the atmospere very sympatic.

We would recommend this appartment to our friends and family and will try to return once we plan to come back to London.

Early easter Break

  • 4 of 5
Great location with easy access to tube station. we used public transport all the time. Great selection of shops and restaurants at Westfield Shopping Centre within 5 min walk from the property. Would recommend Fire & Stone for children and adults alike. Jamie's Italian is more suited to adults. The House was really clean and well maintained. Unfortunately the broadband connection was not working while we were there so we did not have internet access or full tv channels however as we were out and about each day this was not a big issue. Would recommend the property to couples and families, living space would be tight if 6 adults were staying.

Great way to visit London

  • 5 of 5
Overall our experience at this property and with its owners was excellent. The description of the property and the photos accurately reflected the property's appearance and amenities. The property was clean and well maintained. As advertised, it was at a very nice and central location, within walking distance to public transportation. The owners were extremely engaged in making sure our days were efficiently planned and also helpful in answering all our questions and concerns. We would definitely come back and reccommend this property to anyone looking to spend some time in London.

Great Flat for a family and a good location for touring around London

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I and our two daughters (11, 13) just spent a wonderful week at this Kensington Flat. The pre-arrival arrangements with the owners was very straight-forward and we found them to be very responsive and extremely accommodating. Arrangements were made for a car to pick us up at Heathrow and we arrived at the Flat and were met and provided the keys along with information about the Flat and the surrounding area.

The Flat is on a quiet street but backs up to a busy street on the back of the apartment. We ran the fan while we slept and were not bothered by the street noise. We ate dinner in a couple of nights but for the most part only slept there while we kept a busy pace touring the city's attractions. We found the Flat to be very clean and comfortable.

We did not have a car so we relied on the "Tube" for the week and the location is a 5 minute walk to the Shepard's Bush station. We purchased a weekly pass and found the location of the Flat very good for getting around London without a car. It’s a short subway trip to the major attractions of London.

The owners also set up a car to take us to the airport at the end of the week. Overall, I think the Flat met our expectations but the owners far exceeded our expectations with their service oriented spirit!

Lovely Flat Near Exquisite Holland Park

  • 4 of 5
My mother, uncle and I stayed in this 2 bedroom flat near Holland park for 5 days and it was lovely. The flat was clean, spacious and most importantly in a fabulous location. We were a short walking distance to Shepards Tube and Bus station, very near quaint and wonderful resturants and very near Holland park. I ran every morning in Holland park, a lovely tree lined park in London with a beautiful children's play area and friendly dog walkers out for a stroll. The Risberg owners were attentive and very responsive to our every request. It was perfect for our short London vacation.
