Luxurious Flat as Roomy as a House
Submitted: November 3, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
We are a family of 4, with 16 and 18 year old children, that were fortunate to stay at this wonderful London apartment during August 2011. We found the apartment to be everything that the owner said it was. It is enormous as compared to other apartments and hotel rooms, and was a welcome place to come to after a day spent touring London. If you're going to see London and have limited time to do so, then location is everything. We didn't want to rent a car or spend much of the day traveling to the sites we wanted to go to. This apartment is within walking distance of at least 85% of the sites we wanted to see, and within 5 minutes of an Underground station and bus stop. We did not have any need whatsoever to call a cab or rent a car. Everything is close by; markets, restaurants (lots of delicious ones), shops, theaters, pubs… We didn't lack for anything. The owner, Ian, was extremely helpful and kind. He supplied us with maps of the area, information on places to go and how to get there, and local knowledge of London. He was very respectful of our privacy, called us to see how we were doing, and was always available for any questions we had. The apartment is fully furnished, with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, internet, dining room, living room, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. When you first enter the apartment, you'll swear you've just entered a plush art gallery. Many wonderful paintings are on the wall, and you'll begin to think you need an admission ticket. I'm overstating just a bit, but it truly was relaxing to come back to that large, comfortable apartment and plop down on the sofas with plenty of room to stretch out. All of us were very glad we didn't try to squeeze into some small hotel room. London was a very exhilarating stop for us, and we would definitely stay here again should we return.
