For most of the year we live in Hawaii and during that time we rent out our beautiful, comfortable, light and spacious 2 bedroom maisonette, which is available for weekly rental in the heart of charming and picturesque Primrose Hill Village, London. We find that its private and quiet location - whilst having direct access to all that London has to offer - is proving to be a real oasis in buzzing Central London.
Our property is only a minute’s walk from a multitude of charming local shops, gastro-pubs, cafes and restaurants on England’s Lane and Primrose Hill Road. The weekly Organic Farmer’s Market is just a stone’s throw away. The affluent and fashionable neighborhood of Primrose Hill and Hampstead has an impressive historical track record of attracting prominent people in the Sciences, Literature, Arts, Media and Financial Sectors. Residents of this area enjoy the friendly, local shops and restaurants, however just as easily venture out further to enjoy world renowned Opera, Theater, Symphony Concerts, Museums, parks, restaurants and nightlife.
The location is very green and quiet, yet the bus, the Tube (underground) and taxis are all very easily accessible.

We are a professional couple, based in Hawaii. Our family, friends, and business connections take us to London and Europe on a regular basis. Since the trips settled into a regular rhythm, in 2012 we decided to buy a property in London, and make it into a second home. Choosing the area and flat carefully, we then remodeled and furnished it to our taste. There is comfortable furniture in a modern style; art work; excellent appliances; inviting beds… in other words, the comforts of home.
Since we only get to London a few times a year, for a few weeks at a time, we decided to rent it out when not there. Our daughter has her full-time residence in London, close by. She introduces renters to the home, makes sure they are comfortable, and handles any issues promptly.
We take personal cheques, bank transfers and Paypal payments. We will be able to take credit card payments in the near future.

We fell in love with the village feel that the Primrose Hill area has to offer, while also being so close to the parks, and having easy access to our favourite London activities, whether musical, artistic, gastronomic or touristic.
Whether one prefers the Starbucks around the corner, fancies something tasty from the local English bakery, or looks forward to Tea & Scones near the Thames; it can all be enjoyed from here.
All the main attractions are near from this location. Here are a few options:
- Seven minute walk to the famous Primrose Hill Park, which connects directly to Regents Park (which connects to South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Harrods, etc).
- Five minute walk to Swiss Cottage Tube Station (Jubilee Line). Seven minute walk to Belsize Park Station (Northern Line).
- Ten minutes Tube ride to Bond Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Square, Covent Garden (National Gallery, Tate Modern, Royal Opera House).
From going shopping in famous Covent Garden, New Bond Street or Westfield (Europe's Largest Luxury shopping Center), to visiting world famous Ballet, Opera and Broadway Shows, everything is just a short walk, tube or taxi ride away. The area boosts a wealth of historically important buildings, has many old statuesque trees, green open spaces, and old Victorian buildings.
This property is one of our homes, and we treat it as such - a special place with all the amenities and comforts that one would like. This means that you will experience an extra level of care, attention to detail and charm during your stay.

Tranquil: Get your well needed rest after exploring all London has to offer in the quiet, friendly neighborhood of Primrose Hill.
Our family of 3, including our 15 year old son, stopped in London for 4 days on our way home to California after a month in Africa--and this little home was our respite. It's exactly as described: full of light, well-equipped, very much a home away. Tube stops and buses in any direction you choose (we actually often found the buses more convenient, but Chalk Farm tube was our usual Underground stop) and walking at any time felt very safe. We made full use of the neighborhood amenities, all pointed out to us by Anouk, who met us an hour early for our check in after an 18 trip. She is great, the apartment is great, and we look forward to coming back again sometime!
The apartment was comfortable and included everything needed for a family, in particular a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and all kitchen utensils. Both bedrooms and the living room and kitchen were spacious and pleasant and the location was convenient - close to the local supermarket and to the Tube's Chalk Farm and Swiss Cottage stations with easy links to most tourist locations. Communication with Anouk was convenient and efficient, and she was always responsive to any question or issue and ready to help.
We recommend this flat wholeheartedly.
We selected this place because it fit our needs, but also mainly because of the responsiveness of the owner's representative, Anouk. She was very quick to respond to our email requests. Having never rented a flat in London before, we were not sure what to expect. The flat is a slightly uphill, 10 min. walk from the tube. While the building appears to be old (perhaps built in 50's), the flat is pleasantly updated with all you need for a comfortable stay. Our one issue was an oversight of no toilet paper or enough paper towels, but that was remedied with a short hike to the local market. Otherwise, the great washer and dryer came in very handy as we like to travel light and need to wash clothes often. There is also a lovely tea shop just down from the Starbucks we can recommend for a very pleasant weekend breakfast. We usually had breakfast in the flat before commencing on a hectic day of sight seeing. There is so much to see and the tube makes it all very convenient. The wifi worked great. The street was quiet at night and a great break from the craziness of touring London. A short walk away is Primrose Hill, which is a city park that overlooks everything, and gives a much better experience than the tacky ferris-wheel London eye. The area is very safe, and we enjoyed the walk to Camden - not far away is the very bohemian Stable market in Camden which is not to be missed on the weekend.
We stayed at this lovely Primrose Hill flat for nine days and it is just as described - spacious, bright, clean and well equipped. It is located in a quiet, safe and charming neighborhood, close to everything by underground and bus. The owner was very friendly and helpful with all communication. We would stay there again and highly recommend it!
This flat is very tastefully decorated and was equipped with everything our party of four needed for one week. We were two adults and two children age 7 and 8. We enjoyed the decor and found the furnishings, towels and linens comfortable for us all. The location was a convenient short walk to two different tube lines and we used them both depending on our destination. Everything from the communications with the manager, arrival and directions on the electronics and Wifi was easy. The grocery store and Starbucks are around the corner. The manager also provided great recommendations for car service and other items. You will not be disappointed in this property! We will return on our next trip. A perfect stay!
We absolutely loved our stay at this property! It was spacious, with charming decor, and extremely comfortable for us (3 adults on business/holiday). This is one of our favorite London neighborhoods, and the flat is ideally located for all the nearby amenities of Camden, Primrose Hill, and Belsize Park - with food shops and a great selection of pubs and restaurants just a short walk away. Transport is a breeze, with Chalk Farm tube just down the road. The owner, Anouk, is so lovely and professional, and we appreciated her welcoming us personally to the property. She was so accommodating and responsive to our requests/questions, making the entire experience a pleasure. We're looking forward to returning!
