Guestbook comments from the owner
When I first enquired about this property it was new to the market so did not have reviews. But when you look online you tend to 'get a feeling" about the people you deal with. I had a very good feeling about dealing with Ian. So I went ahead and booked 15 nights here. We loved staying in this apartment and this area of London. The local "village' is so friendly. local restaurants and "off licence" ( wine shop) are great. The walk to the Tube station is pretty, through the park, complete with squirrels! We don't have squirrels where we live so loved seeing them and loved having them live across the road in the trees opposite the apartment. Warren, who met us here, was lovely to deal with and he is a definite asset to Ian and this apartment. We stayed her as a family of four and the space was good for that. Everthing is here for you, washing machine and dryer, iron, hairdryer. All has been thought of. This apartment was so good that if we were to go to Italy we would definitely put Ians' place there on our list of places to stay.
