Guestbook comments from the owner
We arrived Eurostar after our trip of Paris and found this lovely apartment a wonderful choice even the tea and biscuits was a site for tired eyes, many many sites right on our doorstep was amazing. With this in mind we were able to very easily and safely walk most places and the underground station is also next door to the apartment for further afield. We felt like neighbours to the queen and the prime minister.

OUR STAY EXCEEDED OUR HIGH EXPECTATIONS. WE WILL RETURN AND WILL RECOMMEND THE APT TO OUR FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying at an apt in Europe and we were a bit nervous about doing so. However everything went smoothly. The apartment was very nice and the location was superb. The staff was helpful and responsive to our every need. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully will return again to stay at this apt in the near future. The apartment was convenient to everything a tourist could need or ask for; tube, bus lines, wide variety of eating choices all within easy walking. Plus have St James so close for a morning stroll could not be beat. Loved our stay!

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our vacation celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. First I want to say thank you to Lizzy for making this trip wonderful. You made the process to stay here extremely pain free.

About this property---the location, of course, is amazing. I though it would be good, but not this good. It's literally walking minutes from many sightseeing attractions (too many to mention). The apartment itself was very clean when were arrived. The accommodations were good, bed was nice, etc. Kitchen items were not used much, but I think adequate should I have needed them. The only improvement that could be made was having a toaster and better pillows. But, with everything else we had, this is easy to overlook.

We would definitely stay here again should we come and would certainly recommend this property to any who will listen!!!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We visited London for a couple of nights in March as part of our journey around the UK and I can confidently say we found our home away from home. Everything about Lizzy’s place is perfect, it’s very clean, light and well looked after and in a wonderful central location.
A 30 second walk will take you St James’s Park Underground Station, and nearby are grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, restaurants and cafes. If you walk a little further you have Westminster Abbey and the River Thames or Buckingham Palace and the Park on either side, making it very easy to explore the sights on foot.
Lizzy and Marc are wonderful. From the moment I sent my initial enquiry, they were so helpful, making the booking process very easy and very accommodating when we arrived early. Key collection was straightforward. They are very happy to share advice on the best places to go in London. It was reassuring as first time visitors to London to know they are available 24 hours a day by telephone if help is required.
The apartment is in a secure building (with elevator access, although it is very small – something to consider if you have big suitcases, otherwise it’s the stairs) and we felt very safe staying there. I would recommend staying here when visiting London.

GREAT LOCATION AND GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO HOTEL

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in a truly fantastic location. It was very clean, comfortable and surprisingly spacious for a 1 bedroom apartment. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped and the shower hot. Lizzy and Marc were very welcoming and made sure everything was ready for us, plus they were relaxed and accommodating at very short notice about our earlier arrival time.
Hard to imagine finding a better place to stay in Central London.

Will return and have recommended this property to friends.

SHELLY

  • 1 of 5
Renter, beware. We have probably stayed in over 30 VRBOs and never had a bad experience. However, this one was HORRIBLE. The bldg is deserted with a somewhat sketchy entrance around back by a parking lot. We never saw another soul. The apt is right across the street from a noisy pub with no way of escaping the late night noise. No one was there to meet us & no key was left. We waited on the street for almost 2 hours for this to be resolved after a very long overseas flight. The housekeeper arrived with the key, but the apt was not ready. So we waited for her to make up the apt. We are a family of four including our young teens. We were given 4 small thin towels, one roll of TP, no replacement garbage bags or laundry soap. The WiFi was not reliable and the overall feel of the place was that they had staged it for unsuspecting renters. To top it all off, they have not refunded our security deposit. We received an email that declared it was left in appalling condition, but the sender would not provide any detail. We did not cook in the kitchen, wear shoes in the apartment, or leave anything out of place. All was tidy. I can only assume it's part of their overall operation. It was just a huge disappointment.

Owner's Response: I would ask prospective renters to consider the many other reviews, submitted over several years from many people from all over the world who without exception rate the property 5 stars and are positive in all aspects of their comments and feedback relating to location and the apartment.
What this guest has omitted to include is any reference to their family causing considerable damage and leaving the place in a truly awful state. Similarly there is no mention that they only wrote this review on receipt of Court Papers notifying them that we had issued proceedings in the UK Courts to recover our costs for repairs, replacements and deep clean.
I would remind prospective renters that the apartment is located in one of the very best upmarket neighbourhoods of London, moments from Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street and then, if you require clarification or further help or even additional pictures of the interior or exterior please contact me.
Thank You.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Have previously stayed at Lizzy's apartment before and returning again found it just as good. The photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance. As everyone remarks who has ever stayed there the location is second to none and the actual apartment immaculate, light and well equipped. Would highly recommend.
