Perfectly located this property is in the Heart of South Kensington with all the amenities you could wish for.
A significantly larger than London average one bed room flat it boasts a large living dining area and an additional separate shower room.
The flat was just as advertised and we enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent for shopping and sightseeing. And the church next door rang its bells only on Sunday. We had a bit of trouble with the cooktop/hob in the kitchen because we had not used an induction hob before and never really got the hang of it. Maybe it just hated me. But other appliances worked, and there was lots of hot water. We would be happy to stay here again.
This property in South Kensington is in a wonderful location. Walk to museums, the tube station, restaurants. The apartment has everything you would want; comfortable bed and pull out sofa, two bathrooms, washer/dryer, equipped kitchen etc. Everything was as advertised. We would certainly stay again. The owners were very easy to work with.
We just returned from our vacation and I wanted to be sure to get this review in. The flat in Kensington was just about perfect. The pictures accurately reflect the apartment. We loved the neighborhood. It was not touristy at all. The apartment is clean and 2 bathrooms are a real bonus. I agree with another reviewer, a bed this size is very rare. My husband and I have a king bed at home and the small queens in Europe are not comfortable for us. We are 67 and 70 but travel in Europe a lot so the stairs were not unexpected. Just be aware and be careful if you're a bit older. The door lock: on the introduction paper it says it is a Mortise lock. Being from the SW part of the US we were not familiar with what that means. It means you will lock yourself into the apartment if you don't reset the lock. Maybe a small explanation would help. It's a funny story now but when we couldn't get out the first morning we were a bit worried. We called Emma and she responded immediately with directions so it was all fine. The South Kensington tube station is a short walk and it will easily get you where you need to be. A tip: Buy an Oyster card immediately upon arriving for all public transportation. Muriel's Kitchen by the tube stop is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. If you like to play poker or casino games there is a lovely casino about 2 blocks from this apartment. It was fun to go there when we got home in the evenings. You can easily walk to Hyde park, Harrods, great London museums and the tube for everything else. I would stay again and absolutely recommend this lovely apartment to everyone. Thank you Emma and Myles
We stayed with our 2 young daughters for a week. The flat is in an ideal location - close to the underground, Hyde Park, restaurants and grocery. It is a spacious flat with lots of light - and having 2 bathrooms is a big bonus. The key drop off/pick up was very close and convenient. Having the Wi Fi and the washer/dryer was great. The owners were always very responsive to inquiries. I would recommend booking/paying through the site rather than directly to make the process more straightforward. While we had no issue with the stairs - If you have mobility issues - you should note that there are stairs outside leading down to the flat. Overall, we would definitely recommend.
My family of four (two adults and two kids, ages 6 & 8) had a great stay in this flat. Myles and Emma were very responsive if we needed anything (which we didn't often). The two bathrooms were very helpful. The location was perfect for our needs - a residential area with plenty of cute restaurants in walking distance, and only a few tube stops from many tourist attractions.
A short walk from Hyde Park, the amenities and shopping of Kensington High Street and Knightsbridge and the local village feel of South Kensington the flat is a couple of tube stops from the Heart of the West End

Regarding the front door - it is a little unusual for non UK guests - place key in lock - turn clockwise to open once open turn key to 'noon' / neutral to remove - don't turn key anti clockwise or it sets the mortice lock which may result in difficulty exiting once the door has been closed - it is a very strong lock so there is no need to set the mortice from inside ( ie don't engage the mortice using the little button on the back of the door lock )
