About Bunty and Ian Ross

We have lived in the house for 25 years and now that our kids have grown up and moved to the USA, we use part of it as a vacation rental! We love the neighbourhood. It is so vibrant and fun and so accessible to every area. Once you've visited you won't want to be in any other part of town!

Bunty and Ian Ross purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Bunty and Ian Ross chose Kensington & Chelsea

We love the fact that you are minutes away from the hurly burly of the city with London on your doorstep, but in a friendly neighbourhood community.Buses and subway minutes away making it easy to get around.

What makes this apartment unique

We love being so close to parks and tree lined streets. So important when living in the city.

Excellent rental with a central but quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Great find - only 20 mins by tube to Oxford St & 10mins walk to Portobello Market but in a quiet residential street. Ideal for us and Ian and Bunty were very hospitable. Will definitely be back.

Beautiful spacious apartment in Kensington and Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a gem. In the heart of Kensington and Chelsea, a short walk from Portobello Road. Our place had a lovely bedroom with a modern up to date bathroom, an enormous sitting room, a convenient kitchen with all amenities including a washer and dryer and a bedroom and bath upstairs had we needed it. The owners are two of the most delightful and caring people you will ever meet. The apartment is close by a Tube station and convenient to all parts of London. Plus there are some wonderful restaurants nearby. We particularly liked an Indian and another Italian restaurant within walking distance of this home. What more can we say? This is a real find and we're coming back again as soon as we can.

Very pleasant stay in London

  • 5 of 5

In early June, my wife, our 2 sons (19 and 23) and I stayed at Bunty and Ian’s place for about a week. This was my first experience with this type of on-line rental and I was a bit apprehensive but everything turned out great and we had a very pleasant experience. The place is exactly as advertised in a quiet residential neighbourhood (café, bakery, convenience store at the end of the block) and a few minutes from two subway stations (and the tube goes everywhere in London). It is bright, spacious enough and clean. The master bedroom is beautiful and very comfortable. The first few days were unusually warm for London and the upstairs bedroom was hot with limited ventilation. Bunty provided a fan and one of our sons was OK with that but the other preferred to sleep on the couch in the airy living-room (he is an adaptable and experienced traveller-South America and Asia) so that was not a problem. The kitchen is small but well organized and fully equipped. We were able to do a few loads of laundry before moving on for the rest of our trip in England which was very convenient. On Saturday, we had a fun day at Portobello market (just a short walk away). We didn’t meet Ian as he was out of town but Bunty was lovely and very welcoming. I would definitely stay there again and recommend the place wholeheartedly.

A great place to stay - wonderful, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 college age children) stayed here in April. Ian and Bunty were wonderful owners. They had great suggestions and tips on how to find places. The apartment worked great for us. The two bedrooms and living room allowed us to stretch out after a long day of sightseeing. Kitchen allowed us to cook when we wanted. The neighborhood is fantastic. Great to walk around (get the morning coffee and bakery if needed); yet very quiet at night for sleeping. You don't feel like you are a quick trip to the center of London. (Tube station is within walking distance.) On Saturday, we went to Portobello Market, just around the corner. It was great to see! I would recommend this apartment if you want to see London and the surrounding areas. We hope to return1

Owner's Response: Susan and family were great tenants and enjoyed the apartment enormously, leaving it clean and tidy which is always much appreciated ,especially as they took their trash out! We very much hope that if they come to London in the future they will choose to stay with us again. ***** Tenants !

Quiet neighborhood with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this flat for two weeks in October. What a great impression fresh flowers on the table made on our arrival. This is a second story flat with stairs to a finished attic. Your genial host Ian lives in the flat below. The website pictures accurately show the flat's features, including modern bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a lovely view from the bay windows. We found sleeping in to be no problem in this quiet residential neighborhood. There is a good bakery at the end of the street with a deli serving hot food on the opposite corner. The Latimer Road tube station is about a fifteen minute walk. Many restaurants are available on Portobello Road which was another fifteen minute walk. We would highly recommend this rental and hope to visit here again.
