Overview

Chelsea Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom luxury apartment, sleeps 2 - 3 in relaxed & comfortable surroundings.

Situated in Nell Gwynn House, an attractive art deco building on Sloane Avenue, between the shops of Kings Road and the museums of South Kensington, the apartment is finished to a very high standard, providing a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, with 24 hour porterage & your own kitchen area if you ever tire of the endless supply of excellent local restaurants.

Ideal for two, but a comfortable sofa bed provides an extra bed. It's light, airy, and a perfect place to base yourself for a business or holiday visit.

The apartment is situated on the fourth floor (with lifts) and benefits from double aspect windows and double glazing and very pleasant views, making it a sunny and pleasant place to stay.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Tessa Tennant

I've lived in wonderful London all my adult life, but have now

moved to the South Coast of England, looking across the River,

and the Isle of Wight ferry. I still have lots of friends in London so use the apartment at Nell Gwynn House when it is occasionally not booked as my London bolt hole. I just love being there - the location, the peace, the lovely porters, and all the great feedback I get from guests staying there. The biggest compliment is how many people come back again and again and now call the apartment their 'London' home.

Tessa Tennant purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Tessa Tennant chose Chelsea

Convenient, easy to keep, 24 hour porters, elegant reception

and a well maintained block.

What makes this apartment unique

Its not unique, there are lots of flats and studios rented out in the block, but my apartment is a home as well as a rental property and

its important that guests feel that. Its very light, well maintained

and decorated and the location is just about unbeatable .....try it and see.....

A memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

Before staying in this appartment we would not have thought that we will be able to combine the advantages of a hotel stay with those of a private apartment rental while staying in one of the most desirable residential neighbourhoods of London.

We found the apartment exactly as advertised, well equipped, in perfect condition and very clean. We had plenty of room for two adults and a ten year old. The pull-out sofa bed was easy to operate and surprisingly comfortable. The availability of 24 hour reception made our arrival and departure easy and convenient.

The location turned out to be even better than advertised. In addition to what is already mentioned in the description, we discovered nearby a Pret-a-Manger, Amorino ice cream, an excellent steakhouse (Gaucho), a good pub (Queen's Head). We had many enjoyable walks in this clean, safe, friendly neighbourhood and in the nearby parks. We will definetly return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all your kind comments - I agree with it all - I try and stay at the apartment as much as possible but it always seems to be full these days - which is, of course, great! Come back again soon. Tessa

Very comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment. It's not huge but it's perfect for two. Facilities for cooking are good, lots of hot water for endless baths and showers, washer/dryer, comfortable bed, plenty of storage. The concierge downstairs is a bonus and very helpful for getting taxis, directions, storing luggage in advance of flights, etc. Fabulous location, about 8 minutes walk from Sloane Square tube, Sainsbury's Local over the road, Marks & Spencer with food hall just 10 mins away. We would definitely stay here again.

Best Value I've found in London

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at five other VRBO properties. This one is far and away the best value. The photos are spot on. There are no hidden costs. This three weeks was the latest stay at Tessa's Place. I hope for a few more.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our near 2 week stay was perfect, even the weather!! This compact apartment was perfect for the two of us. Tessa is a very attentive owner & makes herself available for any problems. How close to transport do you want to be ? 5 minutes to a choice of Tube stations. How close to London? Two stops & you are there, close but without the hustle & bustle of the capital. We would love to come back again next year & will be booking early to avoid disappointment

Wonderful place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Just the best location to stay in London. So close to public transport..metro stations Sloane Square and South Kensington both nearby. Lovely to walk in the summer months as well.

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped for self catering.

A most enjoyable week's break in London. Thank-you Tessa, for being so quick with your responses to my emails.

Home away

  • 5 of 5

I have booked Tessa's apartment for my wife and daughter who spent 3 weeks in London in July for Discovery Summer English language courses in Kensington. It was important for me that my Family would have stayed within this time in homey atmosphere and it was essential for my wife that the apartment is totally equipped for self-catering. Sainsbury's opposite was a great compliment to it.

Perfect location and walking distance to museums helped a lot in very hot July once they had only half-day time after classes to see around.

All what I can say is the flat totally matched my Family needs and

expectations so I never regretted the choice.

Tessa, the website name is 'homeaway', it is great you adapted it to be exactly the home away, very much appreciated and we definitely will be back, hopefully all together next time.

Owner's Response: Delighted that it worked so well for your family - and that they managed to keep cool in our heat wave. I much enjoyed our correspondence through the planning stages and perhaps one day will meet you all in St Petersburg. I hope you will come back again one day. Tessa
