HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

  • 5 of 5
We - a family of 4 - stayed in this comfortable and well done upper ground floor appartment for a week in July. The description is accurate. Furthermore, the living-room with a big plasma TV, the main bedroom with a very comfortable king sized bed and one big wardrobe. High ceilings, stucco walls and wooden floor. Running hot water always. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. There is an old church in front of the building on the left and a high hotel building nearby. It is within a residential area.
As regards the facilities, we would recommend Sainsbury's (from 8am to 12 pm, except Su till 9pm) very close in Cromwell Rd to get anything you may need during your staying.
There are also pubs,starbucks, Italian restaurant, Indian restaurant, Burger King, newsagents in the nearby area.
Bus 74 is 25 metres from the appartment and together with bus 14 go to the city centre easily.
Natural History Museum is 15 min walk from the appartment or just take bus 74. Harrods is 30 min walk or bus 74.
Our daughters loved Madame Tussaud's and the zoo. We liked The British museum, The National Gallery and Albert and Victoria Museum. We all enjoyed a walk along the Serpentine in Hyde park as well as St James Park and a boat ride to Greenwich. We went shopping in Oxford St, strolled around China Town (Gerrard St), Covent Garden (Octopus is an original small shop for teenagers) Picadilly and liked the lively atmosphere in Trafalgar Sq.
As regards food, we loved cakes in pastisseries and cold/hot drinks in Starbucks. My husband was fond of "fish and chips" in pubs.
The owner provided good service.

GREAT HOME BASE FOR LONDON VISIT

  • 4 of 5
Three of us rented this flat for a week in April 2014 and were pleased with our experience.

The flat is as described and more or less as pictured (the living room now has 3 sofas and no chairs, a different dining set, etc -- only cosmetic differences). The kitchen is well-equipped and functional. Second bedroom can be arranged as 2 single beds, which was essential for us. Great showers - good water pressure and ample hot water (bring your own soap). Trash collection was easy to figure out. Wifi was generally reliable. Unlike other rentals, we weren't bombarded with house rules and to-do lists. The place was surprisingly quiet -- there was almost no street noise; the upstairs neighbors are heavy-footed, though.

Great neighborhood, within an easy (3-block) walk of the Gloucester Road and Earls Court tube stations. Convenient services are available nearby -- pubs, groceries, banks, drugstores, bakeries, etc. And a TARDIS on Earl's Court in case you have a need for time travel.

Gerry, the property manager, was responsive throughout the months leading up to the rental, and then went out of his way to make alternative check-in arrangements when one of his staff was unexpectedly unavailable to meet us for our scheduled arrival on Easter morning. Payment (we used Paypal) was easy and trouble-free.

A few minor negatives worth mentioning. The mattress in the master bedroom is rock-hard -- literally. There is no shelving/hanging space in the second bedroom, so whoever stays there is forced to live out of their suitcase. (A simple $20 clothes rack from Ikea would solve this and would fit in the corner.) And if you intend to do laundry, you should allow another several days for your clothes to air-dry afterwards in the damp London air. (European dryers are nothing like American dryers.) Just don't expect to wash your clothes the night before your flight home unless you're willing to carry a suitcase full of wet clothes. In a pinch, there's a laundromat on Cromwell Road.

Finally, the flat was advertised as 2.5 baths, which was a selling point for us (traveling with a teenage girl). But we found the half-bath padlocked and inaccessible.

In the grand scheme of things, the negatives were small inconveniences compared to the quality of the flat and its surroundings, but I mention them in case they matter to you. We would absolutely rent this apartment again. Strongly recommend.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is well located.Few minutes from Gloucester road tube station,big Sainsbury's supermarket 2 minutes away.We got warm welcome from Emily.The apartment was very clean,well equipped and similar to what we sow in the pictures and description.
The kids got their own bedroom and shower,the master bedroom had kingsize bed (with a bit tough mattress) and closet.
Our only problem was that the shower head at the kids bathroom dethaced from the wall.It was fixxed by Mike but it took awhile.
The connection with Gerry was pretty smooth.
We had very nice family time,and for us it is very highly recommended option for our next vocation !

GREAT LOCATION AND CLEAN UNIT!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four that were making our first trip to London having used VRBO/HomeAway on many occassions. After lots of research we ended up staying in this flat which worked out perfectly. All communications we had with Gerry were responded to very quickly with all transactions handled professionally. Emily was there to greet us on time and to show us around the place with instructions on garbage pick-ups and check-out procedures. Although we never had a need that required addressing while there we had her contact info should we need assistance.

Pros:
--location was great with quick access to the two different tube locations
--plenty of eating establishments within close proximity.
--grocery stores were close by
--flat was clean
--Quiet; although it was quite noisy on Cromwell Road a block away it was very quiet on this street and only occassionallly did you hear other people talking in the building.

Cons:
--beds were hard as rocks; maybe this is the way Londoners sleep but I was not prepared for just how hard the beds were with very little comfort
--washer/dryer combo unit; although there was an instruction booklet we never broke the code on getting the clothers dry; we washed small loads of clothes but then resorted to placing the items on the backs of chairs to let them dry the rest of the way.
--bathrooms were quite small but functional.

London is a great city and I would not hesitate to rent this unit again.

EXCELLENT LOCATION AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 4 of 5
Arrived at Waterloo at 12.pm and got a cab straight to the property. There were four of us and the cab fare was cheaper and less hassle than the tube. We were met by Emily, she was already in the apartment waiting for us. Nice lady, and very friendly. The property was perfect for the four of us, each bedroom having it's own on-suite. The kitchen and dining area were very organised with everything to hand.
Having broadband was really useful. It's perfectly situated for trips to Harrods and the Museums. A super experience and would gladly go back.

LUXURY APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was ideal for a short stay in London for myself and 3 friends. We found the property very spacious and very well equipped. There were teabags and sugar in the cupboards which was an added bonus after a long journey! The flat was excellently maintained and designed in very good taste. We were not disappointed!

With Gloucester Road tube station just a few minutes walk, getting around the city was easy. You can get to pretty much anywhere within a few stops on the underground. There are also supermarkets, pubs, bars and restaurants lining Gloucester Road, which meant we didn't have to travel far for something to eat. Attractions such as the Natural History and Science Museums are within walking distance and would definitely recommend these! The area has a nice buzz, with restaurants open late, it is also an area that we felt safe to stroll along the streets.

We found Gerry very helpful with regards to organising our stay, and no question went unanswered. We were met at the apartment by Emily, who gave us our keys and showed us around. We were given contact numbers in case of any queries or emergencies, but we did not need them.

I would definitely use Gerry to stay in London again and would recommend this property to anyone.
