A perfect contrast between quiet living yet being able to dip into the fabulously funky Portobello area a few minutes walk away.

Great apartment. Perfect for a family.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 nights. Me, my wife, my father (over 60), and our 6 year old daughter.
The layout was great. The apartment was clean.
The Tube stop was a moderate walk (maybe 3/4 of a mile), but we enjoy walking so it was fine. We didn't bother with the bus. My father, who's in his mid-60's had no problem with the walk either and we put our 6 year old in a stroller (I would suggest a stroller for younger kids. It would be a bit much for them).
Location is close to Portabello. There's a cool market and even cooler Banksy wall there. All the other main sites will require a Tube ride.
Fare from Heathrow was about 60 pounds, but you could take mass transit and save a few.
We just learned our American football team is headed back to London next year too, so we'll probably reserve soon.
You can't go wrong with this apartment. The price is right.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Our group of five all loved staying at this property (although we were so busy seeing the sights that we didn't actually spend a lot of time in the apartment). The apartment is very clean, comfortable and quiet. The location is great too, being about a 15 minute walk away from Ladbroke Grove tube station. We made good use of the the number 7 bus to Oxford Street, which we caught from the bus stop around the corner.
Philip was great to deal with. He was happy for us to check out a bit later on the last day as our flight home wasn't until the evening, which was really appreciated.
We would all definitely love to stay here again.

Warm and welcome home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This apartment in London was ideal for our family of five. We especially loved the welcome we received after a long flight from Canada. Barbra met us at the apartment and answered all our questions which proved most helpful. The welcome basket of food was also greatly appreciated. We loved the layout and the cleanliness of the apartment. The location is a little less than ideal however we quickly adjusted to the bus and underground systems and preplanned our outing to optimize time in transit. Overall we would recommend this lovely flat and would book it again if planning a London trip.

We are so sorry we didn't get to meet you and Cassie, especially given our coincidental connection. Actually, my husband
and I knocked on your door the morning we left but there was no
answer.

We want to thank you so very much for your lovely, updated and spotlessly clean
flat. I especially want to thank you for your efforts to accommodate
my special needs. This was my first trip in probably fifteen years and
you have given me hope that maybe it IS possible to travel again,with
cooperative landlords.
We really enjoyed coming home to your spacious, quiet and bright place at the end of long sightseeing days. It worked quite well for us: we were four adults and
two kids. Having the park real close was such an added benefit for
the kids. And when nightfall came, your Monoply game was enjoyed by the "boys".
I will definitely recommend this flat to others. And thanks, too, for the perfect weather we had the whole time.

Cozy, bright and clean

  • 4 of 5
Our party of six (family with 2 teens and 2 grandparents) enjoyed our week-long stay in this well laid out flat. Having two showers was terrific, and all the beds were comfortable. It was fun to live in a "real", non-touristy neighborhood. Be prepared, though, to make lots of bus-to-tube transfers to get to the touristy destinations--the flat is about equidistant between two tube stops, and if you don't want to make the 18-ish minute walk to the tube each time, you'll have to take the bus to the tube. Not a big deal--just requires a bit of planning.

If you have more than a couple people to feed, it is difficult to do much cooking--there isn't much in the way of serving bowls, measuring cups/spoons, etc., and there is no freezer. That said, the lovely welcome basket with bread, milk, juice, and even a bottle of wine was very nice to come "home" to, and a market with the basic necessities is a 3 minute walk away. So breakfasts in were a snap.

Our only other disappointment was the mobile phone situation: the 2 apartment phones meant for our use needed topping off, which would be fine except that the company they use doesn't allow non-UK credit cards unless you physically go to one of their outlets. We ended up buying a couple cheap phones and simcards, which was easier, but a hassle.

All things considered, we would warmly recommend this property; we were happy to return to it each evening after full days of sightseeing.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review. Glad that you appreciated the welcome pack plus the comfortable beds and clean apartment.

It is always going to be tricky to get UK mobile companies to accept US credit cards. However, I hear what you say about it being a hassle when the complimentary phones are there to be a convenience. So in future we will pre charge the phones in order that they may be used immediately upon arrival. Thanks for the tip.

I inspect the apartment every turnaround and can confirm there are ample kitchen utensils. There are sufficient cutlery, plates, saucers etc for 6 persons to dine. There is a freezer. This in a room off the kitchen.

Thanks again for coming to stay. It was lovely meeting you and your family.

Best,
Philip

Felt Like Home...Amazing!!! Highly Recommended.

  • 5 of 5
We came to London to see our family member who is in a study abroad program. She was able to stay with us in the flat. We also had other people over for a visits and dinner. In this flat, we could create a lovely homey environment for all that came through the door. Roast dinners, reading in the beautiful garden and a very clean, welcoming home. Close to buses, the underground and shopping. Everyone in our party, young and old, loved it. Thank You.
