Two rooms have double beds and the two children's are four 3/4's - will sleep two or more small children in each bed. In total sleeps 8 to 10 (2 kids per bed), including a pull-out couch in the TV room. Twenty minutes to get to most places in central London by bus or tube. Excellent gourmet pubs on doorstep, a wonderful Italian and the best fish and chips in town. A park with tennis courts and a playground at the end of our very pretty road. Safe and leafy residential neighbourhood centrally located.

Beautifully eclectic, very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent four great days and four very comfortable & cosy nights in this gorgeous home, some of the best night’s sleep we had in ages actually!

It's located in a residential neighborhood just up the street from a lovely park, which our three children really enjoyed. The house itself was bright, welcoming, clean, spacious and wonderfully eclectic. It was perfect for us and a super house to rent.

It has a big open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room. The kitchen leads out onto a balcony which has access to a super patio garden (would be great in the summer) and it was remarkably quiet, considering the location.

The house is ideally located for quick access to central London on the Tube or bus, which we used frequently, and good access to roads exiting London. Nearby there were various shops, pubs & restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the Fish & Chips!!

Lovely home ,great location--perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend this property for a homey get away. The home is clean, well-maintained, and beautifully decorated. It has a bright, airy feel to it. We usually stay in hotels, but this was a much better experience and my children and I felt more at home in the city.

The owner is a lovely person and amazing hostess who met with me twice before I brought my children over for our London vacation in August. I am happy to say she has become a dear friend. Prior to our arrival, she sent emails regarding local events during our stay, good restaurants, markets and the like. She was there to greet us and even prepared a lovely meal for us. She also had lists of take out places, goings on in the city, telephone numbers to local places we may have needed--nearest, hospital, doctor, plumber, lots of useful information.

Really above and beyond anything I expected. So a 10 out of 10 on all fronts!

thankyou for a great stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend for the Jubillee celebrations and loved it. The house is wonderfully eclectic, stylish but comfy, colourful, light and friendly. The kitchen was relaxed and had everything we needed. There were plenty of lovely handpicked china dishes that were a delight to use. We loved the vintage style. My teenage daughter was constantly taking photos to show her friends. There is lots of space to spread out; the rooms are all generous sized and the beds very comfy - although you cannot fit more than one adult in the kids beds. The garden is charming with nice spots to sit in the afternoon sun and there is also a park at the bottom of the road which we used. The house is remarkably quiet for London and the street was very peaceful and full of flowery front gardens. Also its got pretty good transport links and really quick on the bus to High St Kensington, a great shopping area that my teenagers really enjoyed. I would really recommend a visit to Leighton House, an extraordinary, decorative treasure trove full of pre raphaelite paintings which is only a 5 minute drive away. We were delighted with the house and Joanne was a very relaxed and accommodating host. Oh, and we were able to park for free the whole weekend - which was a real bonus.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much Sue. Yes, its true that the kids bed are just 3/4 and can easily fit two children under 10 but not it would be tight for two adults - although it has happened.

Estupenda estancia en Londres

  • 4 of 5
La casa se encontraba muy bien situada, cerca de tren y metro, tenia varios supermercados cercanos, dos mas pequeños y otro más grande.En cuanto a la propietaria fue muy hospitalaria y se preocupo en todo momento por nuestra estancia.
La casa se encontraba bien equipada, puntos a mejorar serían los colchones y algo la limpieza.Por lo demás estaba bien y la zona es muy tranquila.
Si volvierámos y fuéramos el grupo numeroso que hemos ido seguramente repetiríamos.
Gracias Joanne
