Guestbook comments from the owner

I took my family with me on a business trip to London (November 21st – 30th 2012.) We had an amazing time and a big factor was choosing this apartment was. Firstly we had pre-arranged to check-in very late at night (arriving from Gatwick) & were still welcomed warmly. The apartment was comfortable, really clean, and looked like the website photos. The location was excellent: close to two tube stations with bus stops everywhere. Round the corner are grocery stores & numerous restaurants & pubs. There was even a gym near the tube station. It was close to everything we needed (including Starbucks!) We'll be back next year. Thanks Caroline! 5/5

This flat is amazing: wonderful location, meticulously clean, loaded with conveniences (washer/dryer, dishwasher), and attractively decorated. The bedrooms, which face a pretty garden area, are dead quiet, and the beds are so, so comfortable. Caroline was great, too. She was very responsive to emails, met us at the flat to orient us, and provided detailed instructions and helpful information. We could not have picked a better place to stay in London.

Convenience and comfort

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was ideal for our family of four - a clean, decent sized, well located base for seeing London. Despite central location, we slept well with no noise at night as rooms are located at back. Bonuses were having information and maps provided, Caroline greeting us promptly on arrival, and a Nespresso which helped us wake up each day!

Highly satisfied

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed in this flat for a week over our spring break. Caroline was quick to answer emails and helpful with questions. She was there to show us the flat upon our arrival and left detailed descriptions and expectations. The flat was close (short walk) to restaurants, small grocery stores and Earl's Court Tube station. We had a great time exploring London and this flat was a great home base. Thank you!

Clean, nice and quite central

  • 5 of 5

First of all, those two quiet and very well equipped bedrooms provided us with excellent chance to "recharge" ourselves after a long day in the city. Beds are large and comfortable, lining and duvets are of high quality. The sitting room is big enough, and the fully equipped kitchen was fantastic. Especially for non pub-food-fans, the kitchen and the supermarkets nearby provide a very good basis for a culinary diversity. The pub on a nearby the street is a must-visit, they have the best craft-beers on tap in the neighborhood. Bus stations 328 and 14, as well as tube station Earl's Court, are within 10 minutes of walk, you can also choose to walk to the museums in South Kensington. Landlord is a careful and lovely Londoner. All in all, it was a very nice stay worth repeating.

Fantastic flat!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at this fantastic flat in mid-June for a week. It was a great location in a wonderful area of London. The flat was spacious and so clean! My daughter had her own room and my son happily slept in the sofa bed in the main room. While he was in the room facing the street, the traffic noise was more like white noise and he slept very soundly! The back bedrooms were peaceful and spacious. There was plenty of closet space!

The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved having the washer/dryer.

The flat was a pleasant 12 minute walk to Earl's Court tube station (I recommend walking down Coleherne Road to Old Brompton's a quiet residential walk). There were plenty of convenient places to pick up fruit and breakfast foods...and coffee shops as well.

We enjoyed having pizza from across the street one evening when we wanted a quieter evening - so convenient! My husband and I also enjoyed a pint at the friendly pub across the street.

Caroline was great with her communication and she made sure our stay was perfect! THANK YOU!!!

I highly recommend this flat - it fit our needs perfectly!!
