Overview

Hammersmith & Fulham Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Interior designed 2 double bedroom raised ground floor flat. Close to tubes.

This is a very bright and airy 2 bedroom flat. On the raised ground floor of an imposing terraced house, the flat has high ceilings and large windows. It offers 2 double bedrooms (one with queen sized bed and the other a small double) and a modern shower room. It has an open plan kitchen/living room, which has an everyday use comfortable sofa bed for an extra short term guest. It is beautifully presented and very well located. It is really suitable for 2 to 4 people, as both the beds and the sofa bed are doubles, NOT twins, so the beds do need to be shared. The flat is a wonderful comfortable modern apartment for this number, but at 4+, it is a bit compromised so only suitable for very short stays for larger groups.

It is conveniently situated within easy walking distance of various tube lines,(Piccadilly, metropolitan, circle, hammersmith and city) and is within striking distance of the M4 and Heathrow airport. On my personal site www.stayatthegrove.com you will find links to a cab company which does airport pick up and drop off (£36 for collection, £26 for drop off), and for those driving, a link to car parking.

There is a lovely village feel to the avenue,sitting in the Brackenbury Village area of London, with a small selection of quality restaurants a short walk down the road, as well as a Deli, and local convenience stores for groceries. The Grove Bar and Restaurant offers a 15% discount off its A La Carte menu to guests of the apartment.(vouchers in the Welcome Folder.)

The Hammersmith Apollo, the Westfield shopping center and the Shepherds Bush Empire are all close by, as well as The Vue cinema.

There is a £50 surcharge for use of the sofa bed.

If the apartment is empty we are happy to negotiate discounts for last minute bookings, and discounts for one couple.

There is also a £75 end of stay cleaning charge, to be included in balance of payment.

£200 damages deposit payable which can be a Euro or Sterling cheque.

I am able to accept payment by card or bank transfer.

We ask 25% of total rental fee to secure dates, with the balance payable 4 weeks before arrival.

About Darian Day

I am mother to two grown up daughters. I grew up in London, but have lived in the Berkshire Downs for the last 20 years or so, bringing up family. I two beautiful rental houses in the South of France and a flat in Portugal....I am building up a little site of privately owned special places to stay throughout Europe. Visit my site, shortstaysat,com

Darian Day purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Darian Day chose Hammersmith & Fulham

Having seen my girls through school and on their way into the big wide world, I decided I would really like a little bolt hole in London. I have lived in Chelsea, Chiswick, and Holland Park at different stages of my life, but have unreservably absolutely fallen in love with Hammersmith Grove. It is SO accessible, close to multiple transport links, the bedrooms so peaceful,yet it is so central and I have made friends with local restaurants etc in no time because of the village like atmosphere. Not being able to afford the luxury of a flat just for us, I decided to let it out on a short term basis, so my family and I get to stay in it ourselves when it is empty, but in the meantime the rentals mean it pays for itself !

What makes this apartment unique

The huge windows let in so much light, the flat is bright and airy. It is not a 'home', it is a sexy little London 'pad'.....it always feels like being on holiday in the City, an escape, a treat!

Very quiet and lovely flat

  • 5 of 5

The grove flat is an excellent place to stay in London, quite close to busy central places but in a very quiet neighbourhood.

The flat is at ground floor, hopefully the neighbours above are very quiet since the noise insulation between the flats is so so.

We were 5 of us, together with 3 kids from 6 to 11 years old, what amazed us the most is the quietness during the night with the two bedroom on the garden side of the building.

The flat, even if quite small, is very well equiped and nicely decorated. We were welcomed by Darian and her husband with good explanation and tips and a full basket of nice fruit.

There is a good internet Wifi connection and Darian even propose two mobile phones with prepayed option that you can charge if you want to split the group and communicate together in London.

They are as well a good collection of London guide books and maps.

The flat is very close food stores (Tesco, Salisbury,....) and some good restaurant options.

It is 15 minutes walk to hammersmith station which is 5 to 6 stations from Victoria and Westminster, but 5 minutes from Goldenhawk tube station from which the 94 bus line is straight to central London with a double decker from which your kids will enjoy the scenery.

The flat kitchen has all equipment you need to prepare simple meals as well as prepare your own english breakfast.

The bedroom bed matress are new and very confortable.

The bathroom is small but if you don't plan to be five in it at the same time it is okey.

In Conclusion Darian flat is a well recommanded option to spend good and relaxed time in London, it is nice and quiet, well equiped and Darian is helpful with tips and advices, but bare in mind that this is in zone 2 and even if not far from Central London places it is a good 30 to 40 minutes in total each way (from Soho for instance).

Thanks again Darian for your nice flat

Fantastic flat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights at Darian's flat. We have done numerous vacation rentals like these in various cities, but this is only one of a very small handful where I would be happy to stay again! Our trip was last minute but Darian was very flexible and accommodating, as well as prompt and professional in our communication. The flat itself is well laid out, cheerfully and cosily decorated, and very functional. Great lighting all throughout the flat. Plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure in the shower room. Kitchen is well-equipped and appliances worked perfectly. Bedroom is very quiet - broken only by birdsong - and looks out on a little courtyard. The flat is conveniently located between two tube stations (Hammersmith and Goldhawk) and very close to buses and to several grocery stores. This is a fantastic flat and an excellent value and we highly recommend it!

bright and cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in the apartment.

It is sunny, the beddings are good and there is a luxury bathroom.

The bedrooms are at the back, so the only noice you hear are the birds.

Kitchen well equipped.

Shops nearby and at walking distance of the Lyric Theatre.

Ample public transport, but do try al Boris bike!

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this lovely apartment with my husband and daugther over the Christmas period. The apartment was tastefully furnished, well maintained and very cosy, just like what it looked in the photos. The location was great, about 10 min walk to 2 tube stations and bus stops which brought us to the major attractions. There were some nice shops and restaurants in Hammersmith (including a wonderful Christmas fair) and the huge Westfield shopping mall was just a 15-min walk. Darian was a lovely host who gave us good recommendations on where to go and made us feel right at home. WIll definitely stay here again when I next visit London.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review Audrey, but particularly for both following up and making the effort to write a second one when the first didn't appear! I wasn't going to bother you so it was a nice suprise! I hope very much you do return, and look forward to meeting you again.

Fantastic flat, definitely would return

  • 5 of 5

This was our first flat on our trip and it was fantastic for us. Darian had extra bedding available, which meant it was easy for one of my daughters to sleep in the lounge area and for my other daughter to sleep in the smaller bedroom. There is a real comfortable feel about the flat which was warm and inviting (especially as it was quite cold outside). The flat was really well appointed with enough cutlery, plates, glasses, pans and trays etc even when my partner and his son and girlfriend joined us for breakfast. This was the only apartment that had items such as tin foil, bread knife, egg lifter, those sort of things you take for granted in your own house, but feel lost without when trying to cook on the road.

There was nothing negative I could really say about the house except the back main bedroom was a little noisy on the Saturday night as the people above were having a party. But such is life. The street is quiet, it is a nice easy walk to Hammersmith and just around the corner to the other tube. The dry cleaners recommended were great with our washing. We did a lot of shopping at the Marks and Spencer in Hammersmith for our dinners and breakfasts.

Best of all the kids loved returning to this flat after a long day and lazing on the couch. Perfect.

Fabulous 2 bedroom apartment in Central London. Situated on a tree lined avenue with a selection of eateries just a minute away, this is a perfect London getaway. The flat is wonderfully located for various tube lines, with Goldhawk road and Hammersmith just a short walk away, and it has easy access to M4 motorway, Heathrow and the West.

Located on the raised ground floor of an imposing terraced house, it offers 2 double bedrooms, a well designed shower room and a kitchen living room.

It sleeps 4 comfortably, and has a everyday use sofa bed in the sitting room for short stays.

The Hammersmith Apollo, The Lyric Theatre and the Shepherds Bush Empire are a walk away. And Earls Court and Olympia, and Westfield shopping Mall, a short journey.

The Grove restaurant is offering a 15% discount off their A La Carte menu for guests of the apartment and the Italian Gelato cafe has a loyalty card.

There is a beauty salon which offers facials and massage, details can be found in the folder in the apartment.
