Wonderful Flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in Mia's flat in London. It was perfect for our short stay, and very close to two Tube stations. It's very easy to get to everything in London from the flat. Everything was very clean and well kept, and Mia kept in touch every step of the way. She was very timely at getting back to us when we had questions, and she checked in with us a few time during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We look forward to staying in her flat again sometime!

Excellent stay-Perfect Location- Amazing and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We were looking forward to reach the apartment and meet this really helpful and responsive person who contacted us and seemed willing to satisfy our needs. Mia had been offered to take care of our luggage in case we wouldn't have been able to have a late check out which was really helpful because many charge more for this service. The apartment was cute and cosy, as it seems, and although it is recommended for two people, we had no problem staying with my husband and my teen daughter too. The apartment was really clean and I didn't have to use my Dettol because Mia had hers around. The location is great, very close to two tube stations and there is unbelievably easy access to Heathrow airport. The neighbourhood is great and clean too. We loved being there and we hope we' ll have the chance to go again. It is fully recommended.

Thanks a million Mia!!

Great Flat close to Tube

  • 5 of 5

Mia's flat was a great base for my visit to London. She was always in touch and waiting for me when I arrived to let me in and show me around. The flat itself was comfortable and in a safe, residential neighbourhood though only a 4 min walk to Baron's Court tube station (Piccadilly and District lines). There was a good array of tourist info and pamphlets and i found the bed comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks Mia!

Long Weekend in London

  • 5 of 5

Right from the beginning it has been a wonderful experience staying at this location. The property owner was quick to respond to confirm our reservation and was helpful in assisting with routes from the airport to the apartment. The apartment is located in a charming neighbourhood on a quiet street with many shops and 2 tube stations close by. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything provided that you would need for a vacation stay. In addition to the expected items the owner has provided maps, coffee, international plug adapters, ect. Clearly the owner cares about her tenants and was in contact with us several times during our stay.

I would recommend this apartment to any couple or single person. We really enjoyed our experience and will stay there again next time we are in London.

Clean, comfortable and everything a guest needs--

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and spotless, quiet and in a nice neighborhood just a quick walk from two tube stations, grocery stores, great takeout and coffee shop where my husband walked to every morning...he and the people working there enjoyed getting to know one another. Appreciated Mia emailing us to make sure we continued to have everything we needed and to answer any/all questions on things to do. We did find the lighting a little challenging for reading our books @ night but still managed to turn a page or two. Will definitely stay there again on any/all return trips to London.

Queens Club - the famous tennis club, is only meters away from the apartment, perfect for the LTA Finals at Queens. Barons Court is a well heeled residential area of West London, with tube links into Central London only taking ten to twenty minutes depending on where you want to go.

Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earls Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (died 1806) and his English wife Elizabeth (the Margravine, the widow of the 6th Baron Craven).[4] They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The Margravine died in 1828 and is commemorated by a number of roads in the area (Margravine Road and Margravine Gardens) and the Margrave possibly by Barons Court Road although the approximate equivalent rank in the British peerage to Margrave is a Marquess.

The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family.

The platforms at Barons Court.

Perham Road - his wife

Charleville Road - his cousins, the Earls of Charleville

Gledstanes Road - his mother

Barton Road - his grandmother

Challoner Street - his great-grandmother

Fairholme Road - his married sister

Vereker Road - his married aunt, wife of Viscount Gort

Comeragh Road - after the family estate in Ireland

Castletown Road - after the Baronets Pallisers' estate in Ireland

Sir William's brother, John Palliser (the explorer) inherited the Comeragh estate in County Waterford. Sir William did not have an Irish estate of his own. Instead, he tried to develop this London estate. He died very suddenly on 4 February 1882, and the lawyers had a field day, selling everything off, including the 11 acres (45,000 m2) which would become the Queen's Club. Sir William was heavily in debt, though if he had not died so suddenly and had managed to sell many of the houses he could have been a wealthy man. As it was, the family ended up with nothing.
