Knightsbridge Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Our rates are a week & totally inclusive -no extra bills

CORNWALL GARDENS, SW 7 South Kensington. Superb light bright two double bedroom lower ground floor apartment. Key access to Gardens opposite the apartment.

SUPERB AREA

ONLY 5 MINUTES WALK TO GLOUCESTER RD TUBE!!

WIFI is included in the rental as well as all bills.

ALL INCLUSIVE - NO EXTRAS

£500 returnable damage deposit.

BOOKINGS FROM May - September MUST BE FOR 7 DAYS MINIMUM unless there is a gap of only 5 days between bookings which I will want to fill.

This quiet light bright two double bedroom property is located on the lower ground floor of a Victorian conversion.

The apartment consists of a comfortable spacious living room with feature skylights, modernised kitchen with integrated appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, clothes-dryer, microwave, fridge cooker, toaster, kettle, cutlery etc. There is also a TV and DVD player.

*The rental price is inclusive of all electricity and heating charges, council tax, check - out cleaning, towels, sheets and linen and also staples in the kitchen (tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper)*

Indeed this inclusive rate is unusual for a London apartment as most charge extra for taxes and cleaning etc.

There are two compact double bedrooms with double beds and an attractive bathroom with limestone flooring and shower over the bath.

The second bedroom is quite difficult to show without a wide focus camera as the door is opposite the bed, and has another door leading to outside space which is very small, but very useful for laundry purposes.

This is the bedroom I prefer to use when I'm in the flat.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned. For June, July and August bookings must be for one week.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Gloucester Road on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes to Victoria station which is fifteen minutes away by cab to the flat or 3 tube stops to Gloucester Rd tube.

Or we have a driver who will pick you up from Heathrow. His charges are:- £50 pick up from any terminal. £45 to drop off. If there are more than 4 people it is £5 for extra person.

Location can't be beaten (check my reviews) with just a few minutes walking distance to Natural History Museum, V&A or catch a concert at the Albert Hall home to the Proms, the world’s great classical music festival.

Most important is the closeness to the tube with West-end theaters 15 mins tube ride. It's only a 5 minute walk to Hyde Park as well as Kensington High St.

I must stress that when staying in London, location, location and location is of the utmost importance and having 3 tube lines will get you anywhere you need to get to in London without having to change lines.

Knightsbridge is close by with the famous Harrods and it's only a 5 minutes walk to Gloucester Rd tube (District, Circle & Piccadilly lines).

Olympic village 30 mins by tube.

The 49 bus (3 mins walk) takes you to the new billion pound shopping complex, Westfield passing Kensington High St on the way.

There are many international restaurants and bars in the area. Quality shopping at Waitrose and nearby Sainsburys supermarkets.

Please email for floor plan.

Check in 4pm - checkout 10am.

We will be on hand to meet and show you how everything works in the apartment. We will happily answer your questions and fulfil you requests in any way we can and can also hire you a car and driver to take you to and from the airport if required.

Our property manager, David lives in London and he will share his knowledge with you.

It's important to note that if not hiring a car the proximity to a tube (only a 5 minutes walk) is extremely important when living in London.

About Julie

I live in N. Ireland with my husband and have been letting property since 1976. I lived in London before I married so it's always a good excuse to come back when reletting the apartment.

I have twin girls of 28 - Claire is married and teaching in Bath. Kate is also married and in Uganda teaching in an international school as well as starting a sponsorship programme for rehousing and educating street children.

Julie purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Julie chose Knightsbridge

I love this property because of the location as it is just so close to everything and has a real buzz to the area.

It feels very light and airy.

I also still have friends in this area.

What makes this apartment unique

It is much quieter than most London flats as it's a rear lower ground floor flat and that is why it's so light because it is not in the basement as such. This can be seen in the photos.

Perfect for London Sightseers!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a fair bit of time on the VRBO site toggling back and forth between descriptions and the map. I hope to spare others the same trouble. If you are looking for a CENTRAL, SAFE, location for a family to tour London, this is it. This apartment is indeed 5 min from two of the most important Underground lines for tourists. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the Victoria and Albert, Science, and Natural History museums. We were able to drag our bags from Heathrow into our rooms in about 45 minutes. We never felt unsafe--there were solo joggers and Moms walking with children and strollers in this clean, quiet neighborhood. It truly is as bright as the pictures show. It was a boon having a washer and dryer in the unit. We will pack even less next time. The restaurants within walking distance (Indian, Italian, Spanish, and Thai) were excellent--I'd recommend heading home after tours, dropping in a load of wash (it is a small and slower European-style washer) and just getting dinner close by. It's handy to grocery stores and fruit vendor; post office and dry cleaners; cafes and take-away food. Additionally, the owner and property manager were incredibly accessible and helpful. The property manager met us on-site at check in and showed us the flat, appliances, keys, etc. He was immediately available by text throughout our stay even for questions such as, "where are the pods for the dishwasher?" Having free internet was actually far more helpful than I ever imagined--I'd not been overseas since the advent of the smartphone. All the apps I thought would be great required live access so I found myself pulling up and storing maps in the evening at the apartment for use the next day. In summary, this is an excellent property to use as a home base for a family of sightseers!

Fantastic stay !

  • 5 of 5
We rented the flat for one week and had a fantastic vacation. The flat is fully equipped and the location cannot be beat. We were in walking distance to a lot of places and it is a very short walk to the tube station or the bus stop for the hop on hop off bus. Many restaurants and a grocery store right nearby also. The flat itself us very clean and has a washer and dryer which is very handy. The neighbourhood is lovely. We enjoyed staying here very much.

A most comfortable flat

  • 5 of 5
We are an active couple in our 80s and loved being in this flat. There are spiral steps leading down to the basement, then a hallway leading to the flat, and the flat itself is light and airy, thanks to skylites and no-one above! The kitchen and bathroom are small but adequate and we liked both bedrooms . We spent a lot of reading time in the living room which had new and comfortable couches. The flat is an 8 minute walk to the tube station, which also has a Waitrose (grocery store), Garfunkels restaurant (good) and a pharmacy; also enroute to the station is a small shop with tourist info, post office, and a free ATM machine. There was also an internet shop, although the flat had a wi-fi connection. Julie was always available via email if we had any questions. If you stay here, you will enjoy yourself!

Perfect Launching Pad for Families with Children

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our two children (9 and 12) stayed here for a week. We could not have asked for a more perfect combination of location, space and amenities for the price. The flat was clean and bright and provided far more space and comfort than we could have afforded in a local hotel. It was also wonderful to have access to a kitchen and to a washing machine! There are also many family-friendly restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. And, of course, the tube was an easy walk and provided convenient access to all of the sites of the city.

London vacation

  • 4 of 5
My husband, two teenage daughters and I just spent a week in London in Julie's flat. Terrific location... 5 minutes from the tube which gets you anywhere in the city and also within walking distance to Kensington palace/gardens! Close to shopping: grocery stores, restaurants, bank, post office... Just perfect. We could also walk to the v&a museum. The apartment was wonderful, plenty of room for the four of us. It's a smaller kitchen, but we used for breakfast/snacks only... Wouldn't want to cook a full meal in it. Other reviews mentioned a smell in the hallway and we noticed this too. Not a problem as the apartment did not smell. Julie was great to work with! Very responsive to emails and we had our deposit back right away.
