Guestbook comments from the manager

I booked this apartment as a surprise for my wife for our 10th wedding anniversary. We both loved the apartment and had the most amazing long weekend in London. The penthouse is on two levels and the top floor is a cool and contemporary open living space with a huge corner sofa, gorgeous open gas fireplace and a huge TV with surround sound for cosy romantic nights at home. The lower floor contains the three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is a lot of space and the master bedroom is really beautiful with a huge sleigh bed, lovely ensure bathroom with a wonderfully powerful walk in shower as well as a bath tub. The apartment feels brand new, with beautiful decor and fresh and modern furnishing. I wish I could afford to live in such an amazing apartment but it was great to treat ourselves for a few days.

Great Apartment in Covent Garden

  • 5 of 5

Title says it all. The location was perfect and the apartment was wonderful. We were three adult couples travelling and large penthouse apartment worked very well for us. The bedrooms and baths are all on the lower level and are quiet and private and the upper floor is one great room and kitchen that is perfect for socializing. Dealing with the owners was also a pleasure. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Large, quiet penthouse apartment in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

3 bedrooms and 3 baths worked great for our family of 6. Penthouse is located in quiet neighborhood near several restaurants, pubs and a grocery store. It's a short walk to Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and other shopping and sightseeing areas. Convent Garden Underground station is less than 4 blocks and Leicester Square station is not too far. This apartment was truly home-away-from-home and was a great retreat from the busy city. We liked opening the folding wall from the kitchen to the deck and enjoying the evening air and moonlight. Very modern and artsy design and furnishings. Communication with owners was very good and they easily accommodated our changes to arrival time due to flight issues.

Great flat/great location!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat central to shops, pubs, restaurants, theater. We were able to walk to most everything. Complete privacy in bustling Covent Gardens area. Entry through a secured gate into a cute courtyard. Fully modern with comfortable room for 6. We hope to stay here again on our next visit.

Great property in Covent Garden!

  • 5 of 5

Really couldn't ask for a better location. Covent Garden is our favorite area in London - so many cute shops, good restaurants, and close to theaters. The apartment is steps away from cobblestone streets with shopping and about a 5 minute walk to the Piccadilly train stop and British Museum. Yet, it is extremely quiet. The building is on a little side street; when you open the main door to the street, you enter a courtyard and the apartment is set to the back so you're really in the middle of a block which minimizes street noise.

The unit itself is quite large - especially for London! The 3 nice size bedrooms are on the first floor and all have their own bathroom. You walk up to the second floor to a large communal area with a great kitchen and dining room table. In addition, there is a great looking outdoor patio which we didn't use due to the time of year, but would definitely hang out there in warmer weather. Modern, comfortable decor. Very clean.

Easy to get around to other areas of London. Lots of taxis in the neighborhood and, as mentioned above, the train is close by.

Hosts were responsive and easy to deal with from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

Beautiful apartment in heart of Covent Garden

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this great apartment. The owners were easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions we had before, during , and after our vacation. We were able to take the Picadilly line from Heathrow straight to Covent Garden (about an hour) then a 5 min walk to the apartment. The apartment is located on a quiet commercial street with restaurants, pubs, a grocery store, and a health club on the same block. But once you go through the private gate, you find yourself in a serene quiet setting among other private homes and apartments. The apartment was perfect for our family of five. Having three bathrooms made it easy to get ready each morning before heading out to sight see. The outdoor terraces were a huge plus. We were able to open the retractable glass doors off the master bedroom at night for the wonderful breezes and opening the doors off of the kitchen and dining room each morning at breakfast with the sun shining in was great! The first morning there we went across the street to the grocery store to pick up items for breakfast. The kitchen was well equipped although we only had breakfast there each morning. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were hotel quality. We were a 5 minute walk to the theatres, 10 minute walk to Leicaster Square, and about a 15 min walk to the London Eye. Our second day there we were able to walk to the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Trafalagar Square! We did a day trip to Stonehenge, Bath, and Windsor Castle leaving from the Victoria train station and another day trip to Paris on the eurostar leaving from St. Pancras train station. Both stations were easy to get to by taxi or the tube. We were able to take the hop on hop off tour starting at Leicaster Square (a 10 min walk). Also, we took the tube to see the Arsenal Stadium and Kensington Palace. The neighborhood is very safe and friendly.There is a great sandwich shop right across the street. Great shopping all around! To summarize, wonderful apartment and great owners to work with :)
