Guestbook comments from the manager

The property was absolutely amazing! It was beautiful, functional, and the epitome of what I would expect in a UK "South Kensington" experience. The owner has a keen sense for interior design which provided elegant yet comfortable surroundings. We stayed at the property for 5 nights and with 4 women, there was plenty of space. On tours we talked to other folks who were staying in tiny hotels and they were pretty envious of the pictures we showed of our spacious apartment. While the kitchen is small compared to U.S. standards, it was completely functional with everything we needed to make breakfast and lunches. There are however great pubs within walking distance for eating out anytime. I would definitely rent this flat again if traveling to this area.

The property was booked through a professional letting agency (Ivy Lettings) which added a huge sense of security to booking accommodations online. Their staff was great to work with!

Beautiful Flat

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many rental flats in London over the years. This was one of the nicest. The neighborhood is great. The bus on the corner takes you to the South Kensington Tube stop. Stores are close. The flat is light and airy with high ceilings and homey furniture. It feels like a real apartment rather than a rental. The furniture are quite old and not everything is overly comfortable, but the beds are nice, and the bedrooms are very quiet for sleeping. The kitchen is well equipped. Be prepared for a full flight of stairs but the private rooftop deck is worth it. I would stay here again.

Luxury Apartment for our Family of 4 Safe & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in June of 2014. This fancy little apartment located in the heart of Chelsea Kensington's $1.5 million plus residences (we looked into it...) was a great place for our family of 4 to stay! If cars are any indication to you cars from Bentleys, Lamborghinis to Maseratis line this street...Mercedes are like Hondas in Europe. We felt very safe in the neighborhood day or night and it was a short walk to the main bus line to get us everywhere we needed to go. The main bedroom had doors that opened onto a great outdoor patio. We kept those doors open every night for the great fresh air! The kids stayed in the other bedroom which was big enough for all their stuff and more. The kitchen was clean and the perfect size for everything we needed. The living room had very comfy furniture and we enjoyed the large front windows. Downstairs was a great Italian restaurant that was perfect for our night of arrival. The upscale bar across the street was loud on a Friday night, but after leaving that front room to the bedrooms-we could not hear the noise. There is a narrow zig zag of stairs going up-so I do not recommend this to anyone who cannot climb stairs. There is a small grocery store and great food options a short 5 minute walk away. I highly recommend this apartment!

Upmarket Chelsea forms a latticework of safe and quiet streets, peopled by monied Londoners, literary types and the native ‘Sloane Rangers’ who choose the area for its bustling cafes, independent businesses and artisan restaurants. The area’s main thoroughfare is the King’s Road, a delightful mix of chain stores and high-end boutiques. The area is home to the impressive exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery, the horticultural displays of the Chelsea Physics Garden and the splendor of Sir Christopher Wren’s Royal Hospital, which plays annual host to the Chelsea Flower Show. You take a hop over to the river's southern bank to reach charming Battersea, towered over by the decommissioned Power Station. Nearby sits Battersea Park, replete with fountains and boating lakes, delightful gardens, a small children’s zoo and the magnificent Peace Pagoda. Chelsea's wealth has slowly spread to its more southerly cousin, and today the area is home to luxury riverside apartments and posh eateries.
