Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy's apartment is a really lovely place to stay in! It's 1 minute walk from West Kensington tube station and Barclays Cycle Rental station is just around the corner. Tesco Express is really close by. Everyday we used bicycles to get the center of London (Oxford street, Westminster etc.) - it's very easy, fast and cheap. Perfect for three persons - 2+1. Railroad is very quiet. And no one could hear trains during all night. Friendly and lovely people.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we needed to make our visit to London enjoyable. Everything positive stated by previous visitors was true. Although we had to Tube to all the normal tourist attractions, both lines are so convenient and easy to use it added to the excitement of being in a foreign city. The neighborhood is safe and had all the grocery and restaurants needed. Using a lock box made arrival easy. The owner quickly responded to our emails when we had questions. Wi-Fi was great. We have no reservations in recommending this apartment.

CLEAN, CONVENIENT, COZY AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5

I really can not say enough about how great this flat was. First, I am a fanatic about cleanliness; this was the first time I had a vacation rental and didn't clean anything before using it. This flat was spotless! The beds and bedding are super comfortable. The flat is very convenient for getting to the tourist attractions with 2 tube stations so close. Yes, you can hear the train but this didnt disrupt my sleep or quiet time at all! Wonderful stay! I would definitely return to this property on my next trip to London.

Great apartment for seeing the sights of London

  • 5 of 5

My 13 year old son and I very much enjoyed our stay in your 2 bedroom apartment. It is as described, clean, and in a great location, just minutes walk to Barons Court and West Kensington tube stations. Safe, quiet neighborhood to retire to after a day of sight seeing around London. Wi-fi worked great.

Since the apartment is close to the tube stations, the trains can be faintly heard in the evening and morning hours, but it was not a problem for us sleeping. Checking in and out was no problem and communications were great. Easy ride to and from Heathrow. If you are budget conscious or have a picky teen-age eater along for the trip, having the kitchen and frig is a big advantage over staying at a hotel, especially since the nearest grocery store is literally a block away. Several restaurants and pubs are also within walking distance. We most enjoyed the Albion Pub, a traditional-style pub with good food at reasonable prices. This place is great for a small family of no more than 2 adults and 2 kids. I would recommend this to friends and would consider staying at again.

A convenient, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is very handy for the tubes on the District and Piccadily lines and buses into town. We even walked up to Kensington one afternoon and it didn't take too long. Shops, street markets, pubs, cafes and restaurants (including a fantastic little Turkish restaurant) all nearby.

Nancy was very accommodating and answered all our query emails promptly.

The flat is warm and well equipped and provided a comfortable stay. The rail line does run behind the flat but with the double glazed windows, thick curtains and busy days, the early morning tubes didn't bother us too much.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

What a fabulous location!!!!! short 2 minutes to the tube, 3 minutes to lots of mini supermarkets and restaurants. For those a bit more keen a 15 minute walk to Fulham.

The apartment is well appointed. a little noisy being so close to the tube, but none the less still very comfortable and once we got use to the trains we loved it.
