Overview

Pimlico House Rental Photos and Description

4-star, 4-floor, 6 bedrooms, sleeps 12 - short walk to top tourist attractions

Share a postcode with the Queen! This spectacular house, built in 1846 and quietly situated in a friendly and beautiful London terrace just 10 minutes' WALK from Buckingham Palace, boasts 6 bedrooms (great beds!), 2 sitting rooms (one with fold-out bed-chairs), a kitchen-dining room, a conservatory-study, 4 bath/shower/WCs (great showers!) & free wi-fi throughout. The lower ground floor (just one flight of stairs down) has its own kitchenette & walk-in shower, and can be separated off – perhaps for an older couple. Being laid out on four floors (and some mezzanine floors), the house works well for larger and smaller groups. There are 5 single beds, 2 king beds (150cm, 5'6' wide), 1 double bed & 2 bed-chairs (in the second sitting room). The main rooms have ornate ceilings, marble fireplaces, chandeliers & working window-shutters yet the house is fitted with with every modern convenience: washing machine/dryer, microwaves, dishwasher, hair-dryers, irons, SMART TVs (internet access, Netflix), gas-log open fire, digital radio/sound systems with iPad, iPhone/MP3 'docks', linen/towels, books, toys, DVDs, 2 x cots and highchairs. Cozy and warm in winter, an efficient air-cooling system keeps the top floors cool in summer. Outside there’s a suntrap terrace leading from the kitchen, plus a delightful patio garden wreathed in jasmine and wisteria. You also have key-access to an exclusive nearby ‘gated’ London garden square - a real 'secret garden' with wonderful plants and shrubs, a children’s play area and tennis courts. A great sports centre with public-access gym and swimming pools is a two minute walk from the house. Quality in Tourism 4-star rating.

We have been advised not to go for a 5-star rating as that involves incredible luxury such as marble bathrooms and antique furniture throughout - and is less comfortable for families.

We keep the house in the best condition, constantly re-painting to remove scuff marks and renewing furniture and accessories regularly. Guests frequently comment on our stratospheric level of cleanliness and attention to detail. A welcome pack of groceries greets you on arrival.

We pride ourselves on the fact that the house is imaginatively decorated and laid out in such a way that there are great opportunities for privacy, as well as for 'getting together' in larger groups.

The house is suitable, as part of a longer let, for entertaining up to 40 people in a buffet-style reception.

This house is also a great venue for team meetings and other business requirements. The six bedrooms and the (second) sitting room with fold-out furniture means individuals can sleep in 7 separate areas; and there's a great table in the kitchen/dining room for team meetings.(seats 12)

This spectacular house is brilliantly located for special annual London events, including - within WALKING distance - the Chelsea Flower Show , the London marathon (finishing line), the New Year's Day Parade, the Lord Mayor's Procession & Show, the Russian Winter Festival, outdoor skating ,the Chinese New Year celebrations, Trooping of the Colour, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Thames Festival, the Chelsea Antiques Fair, the State Opening of Parliament, the London Film Festival, Guy Fawkes Night, the main New Year Celebrations, Christmas Lighting Celebrations and Westminster Abbey for Christmas Carols and all Royal Family celebrations.

Within a short tube/bus ride you'll reach the London International Boat Show, the Olympia Fine Art & Antique Fair, Wimbledon, the Holiday and Travel Show, Party in the Park, the Proms at the Albert Hall, the Covent Garden Festival of Street Theatre, the Notting Hill Carnival - and many others!

About Adrienne Burgess

We are a couple who have worked mainly in the theatre and the arts, although Adrienne is now a writer/researcher specialising in fatherhood and Martin enjoys new-age ideas, while also working in the City of London as a communications coach. We have been renting out properties for almost 40 years (two small apartments originally), and first tried holiday rentals with our country cottage in Churt www.guildford-cottage-surrey.co.uk

Adrienne Burgess purchased this house in 1985

Why Adrienne Burgess chose Pimlico

We purchased our central London home in 1985 and lived there until 2008. The moment we opened the door we loved it. It felt then, and feels now, as if only happy things have happened here - which can't possibly be true, since it's more than 150 years since it was built! We wanted to live right in the heart of London, and you can't get much closer to the heart than this! We also wanted a spacious house, with high ceilings and a sense of generations upon generations of people living there before us And that is exactly what we got! We raised our family here, working from home, so the house has always been busy and full of people - lots of them children. When we left it, to 'downshift' to another part of London, we rejoiced that we didn't have to sell it, and that other people could now enjoy it too.

What makes this house unique

The remarkable thing about 'Pimlico' (the area in which our house is), is that it is quite like a village, and yet it is right in the heart of perhaps the greatest city in the world. Neighbours know each other; our quiet street contains many family houses and has an active residents' association, the people in the shops are friendly, and yet it's cosmopolitan and fast-paced. In Pimlico you can be peaceful, yet never feel that life is passing you by. . .

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have travelled from Australia and New Zealand for our daughter’s wedding – three generations. We had a wonderful time. The weather was great and the wedding went off without a hitch. The house of course made it all so easy. Just right for all our family and so wonderfully well equipped! We loved Pimlico (the local area – Owner) – so handy to everything!

By Far the Best Rental I have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5
Great job! I would say, even if you have to stretch your budget a bit, you won't go wrong with this rental. I have rented quite a few places over the past few years, in Rome, Amsterdam, and Washington, DC and this was by far the best yet. You always wonder how close to the description your house will be and paying in advance sometimes can be a bit unnerving. These ladies went beyond in helping me and my 9 other travel companions to feel comfortable with the entire process. We all hope to be able to return in the future!

Thoroughly delighted family

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for an unforgettable vacation! Our extended family gathered for a week in London, and we were delighted for part of our group to stay in this charming, spacious home, which offered ample space and true comfort. Our children were so sad to leave yesterday--in part because they had so enjoyed the home's toys, hidden play spaces, and gorgeously inviting private garden. In the middle of the bustling city of London, we could not have imagined a more idyllic family retreat. We will cherish the memories of delicious food (prepared by a hired chef in the home's well-appointed kitchen) and warm family time around the dining table at this beautiful family home. Adrienne and Carole did so much to provide extensive information and assistance and all the comforts of home. We are very grateful to them; they offered our family a perfect vacation. Many thanks!

Awesome stay in London

  • 5 of 5
I am late in listing my review as I stayed with 10 women (Ladies trip celebrating a big birthday) back April 26 - May 1st. 2013. All of my dealings with both Carole and Adreinne were terrific. They helped us every step of the way and went way beyond the call of duty when one of us left a shoe at the house and they made sure it was returned to California! Everything was as described. It was a perfect location. We were able to walk to pubs (a local told us "Cask" right down the street, was the best pub in all of London. Restaurants and stores also steps away.
Everything was clean, comfortable and exceeded our needs. I would definately recommend this to any large group going to London. We have wonderful memories of all the gracious and lovely people and places of London.

Perfect place for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for the reunion of our far-flung family. Everyone had their own space as well as wonderful gathering places for meals. The house was very well equipped and in a great location for seeing London, as well as transportation to airports and train stations. We highly recommend it!

'The house is wonderful and we have very much enjoyed our stay here. We will definitely recommend it.' 'The house has excellent equipment and facilities..The location is perfect to explore London.'
