Overview

Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A charming and elegant 2 bedroom apartment conveniently situated steps away from world famous Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and all the Sloane Street and Brompton Road shops.

Thirty year London home of Hollywood composer. Perfect for one or two couples exploring London, and overlooking Basil Street with a perfect mixture of comfort and elegance. The flat is located on the first floor of Lincoln House (in the UK this is one floor up) and is accessible via steps or elevator. The closest tube stop is Knightsbridge, and the flat is located midway between the Sloane Street entrance and the Harrods entrance. Kings Road is a ten minute walk at the end of Sloane Street. The building has two porters which are available to assist with deliveries.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Not suitable for very young children.

The flat has a local phone, and also a US based phone with a New York (631) telephone number which can be used for unlimited free calls to and from the US.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Knightsbridge on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes and is a short train ride to Victoria Station, which is fifteen minutes away by cab - Bonnie Cacavas.

Excellent choice for independent travellers

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is a large and beautiful flat in a perfect central London location. The living areas and bedrooms are generously proportioned, beautifully presented and great for a family, or 4 people sharing. Easy walk to Knightsbridge tube station and buses (Sloane St or Brompton Rd).

The location is excellent, near Harrods, Harvey Nichols and supermarkets (M&S Food, Waitrose and Sainsburys), which made dining in and relaxing at home in the evenings very easy. Sale e Pepe restaurant across the road was very good and there are numerous places to eat in Sloane Square, a short bus ride or 15 minute walk down Sloane St.

Interaction with the owner, Bonnie, was smooth and the information provided in the flat was thorough and made the stay trouble free. Overall a fantastic place to stay in London. Can't wait to return.

Excellent flat in nice neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is just perfect for a group of 4 travelers to London. So close to Harrods, the tube, buses, restaurants. It was so nice to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen where we could prepare some of our own meals. There is a very good Italian restaurant right across the street: Sale e Pepe for a quick bite or a formal meal. Bonnie was very responsive before we left and also while we were there when the internet went down. For the most part it is a very quiet flat, but can be more noisy when the upstairs neighbors are home, so be prepared to hear upstairs footsteps, etc. All in all, highly recommend the flat. We primarily went to London at this time of year for the Chelsea Flower Show which was amazing! Also enjoyed the London SkyGarden (make a reservation), the Victoria and Albert Museum, and seeing Book of Mormon! We'll be back!!

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a delight to return to this beautiful accommodation and receive that welcoming call from Bonnie. We love the location: we would stroll to Hyde Park for a coffee and watch the horseguards in the exercise ring, or walk in the evening to the Royal Albert Hall for a concert. We would take bus or tube to Oxford Street, Covent Garden or Portobello Road, Kew Gardens or Richmond. Nights at home were a pleasure and we enjoyed takeout from the local Ottolenghi deli as well as supplies from Harrod's and the nearby supermarkets...Sainsbury's, Marks and Spenser's and Waitrose. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, bathrooms are lovely, and we appreciate the provision of pantry staples. It's easy to communicate with Bonnie if you have any questions. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in London!

Great Stay-Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two teenage boys) loved our stay. The location is great, 1/2 block to Knightsbridge tube station made the trip from Heathrow easy and cheap. Plenty of good restaurants in the area as well as food stores and of course Harrod's food court is right down the street. Kitchen was well stocked and washing machine was great to have as we pack light. Evenings in the front rooms can get a bit noisy when the supercars start revving their engines but our teen boys loved them. Bonnie was easy to deal with and everything was as presented. Highly recommend this apartment.

Lovely flat, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly lovely apartment in one of the best locations in London. It's less than a block from some of the best shopping in London, including Harrods, and equally close to the Kensington tube station. The apartment layout is perfect - 2 nice size bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large living room. The style is a mix of comfort and elegance that makes you feel both welcome and special. The owners have thought of every detail. There are clear instructions about everything (I.,e., how to use the washing machine, how to use the tv) and thoughtful details like a basket of London guide books in the living room. I know London well and this apartment is such a great find that I'm am already trying to figure out a reason to go back.

Perfect Flat with Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days in London and this was the perfect flat and location for 2 couples. The flat is exactly what the pictures show and there are no surprises. Very comfortable and would definitely stay here on another London visit. Easy access to all the sites either walking, taking the tube or catching one of the cabs that are always coming by, you do not wait very long. The area has great restaurants no matter your preference or taste. This is a hidden gem in a very busy city and dealing with Bonnie is a real joy.
