Prestige apartment in one of Kensington's finest streets

Our apartment is located in one of the finest streets of Kensington, within easy walking distance of Kensington Gardens, Notting Hill and Portobello market. In the spring, the cherry blossom trees are amazingly beautiful and you can enjoy them from the balcony whilst sipping a glass of wine and having a few nibbles . Sitting out on the balcony is a great way to unwind after a hard day's site seeing or shopping with much to see and do on your doorstep and a number of Tube stations only a few minutes away. We have tried to both keep the original features of the apartment ( cornices, fireplace, window shutters ) and create a relaxing, modern feel to the place through our choice of colours, furniture and pictures. TV, Wifi, and a selection of books, CDs and DVDs will hopefully also help you relax and unwind in the evening. The main bedroom has a large double bed which can be converted into two single beds if required. A comfortable sofa bed in the lounge can be quickly prepared and the apartment can therefore accommodate four people without difficulty.

Two streets away from Kensington palace and with 2 tube stations very close by with many shops and restaurants to choose from I have found this to have been my home away from home!Sunny and bright with even my own little terrace to enjoy an evening glass of wine , my husband and I have had a wonderful week in London . Our host , Patricia , is always close by to help with introducing you to the apartment and any queries you may have . Thank you Patricia for such a pleasant set up, and although we live in Sydney ,we also enjoy thinking of our lovely home in Brunswick gardens .Many thanks and we hope to visit again soon ! Diana and Peter .

                                                              VERY COMFORTABLE STAY IN GREAT LOCATION

                                                              We spent nine nights at this comfortable, well furnished, contemporary apartment on a quiet tree filled street off Kensington Church Street. The apartment has been updated with a totally new bath and kitchen, not a cosmetic treatment of old fixtures. There’s a Euro-style walk-in shower and heated towel rack in the bath, while the kitchen has granite counters and up-to date appliances that made our stay easier. A washer/dryer combo machine gave us an opportunity to do loads of clothes that needed washing after three weeks in Italy. Electricals have also been up-graded with new lightning in all rooms and accessible outlets. We ate breakfast there almost every morning and had take-away several evenings from the many food possibilities in the neighborhood: Whole Foods, Fortnum and Masons, and even Sainsbury’s, a short walk away, along with many varieties of restaurants and bakeries. Access to London’s excellent transportation is easy: Notting Hill Gate Underground station is ten minutes’ walk away and Kensington High Street, 15 minutes. The #70 bus on Kensington Church takes you directly to the museums, an example of the numerous bus possibilities available. Patricia, our host, though I never met her, was very helpful, making sure our stay was comfortable through phone calls and emails. She’ll arrange such things as chauffeured cars to and from airports. Our stay was lengthy because we were visiting my son and his family now living in London. The apartment was comfortable enough for the four of them to visit and for us to feed them with take-out pizza. All and all an excellent place to stay, long or short term, during a visit to London.

                                                              A wonderful place to rest during an amazing trip....

                                                              Patricia and Gerard's home was spotless, beautifully styled, and in an amazing location of London, which is perfect to see all that can be seen in one of the world's finest cities. The bed was wonderfully soft with fresh linens. The living room has a small deck overlooking the street and it was great to come home and relax there. The kitchen is spacious, though we didn't use it much. The tube system in London was immensely simple and a joy to use, with Notting Hill Gate tube station being right nearby. We enjoyed staying right near Hyde Park and spent a few wonderful moments there. The Churchill War Rooms were spectacular, as were other sights. We ate at 'Core by Clare Smyth', which opened up recently near the flat, and it was a top level meal from a top level chef and her team. We saw Stonehenge and the city of Bath. And at the end of every jam-packed and fun-filled day, we loved each minute of rest and relaxation at our Kensington home. Thank you Gerard and Patricia!! Will definitely use you guys again when we come back to London.

                                                              Clean, well appointed, great location

                                                              This was a great apartment for us. Nice views from the windows, modern, bed very comfortable. The one thing I would have liked to have, and it is a small thing, is a drain board in the kitchen. Otherwise, they had everything we needed.

It is totally my fault about the drain board in the kitchen. I never showed you where it was. In fact, it was sitting on the top shelf above the dustbin. I will make sure I mention it next time.
