This property is a beautifully renovated flat, with lots of character, in a REALLY convenient location. The nearest shops and restaurants are a two minute walk away, Kew Parade which is a very cute, old fashioned shopping parade, containing over 30 shops, cafes and restaurants, is a five minute walk away.
Kew Gardens tube station and Overground station is a five minute walk which will you with Central London in 25 minutes or Covent Garden in 35 minutes.
The area of Kew Gardens is in West London and is regarded as one of the nicest, prettiest and most genteel.
There are plenty of tourist attractions nearby including: Kew Botanical Gardens, The National Archieves, Syon Park, Chiswick House and Park, The River Thames (you can walk along the tow path or take a boat ride along the river), Hampton Court Palace, Ham House (view the house or watch the Polo matches there in the summer) and Richmond Park the largest park in any European captial city.
I stayed for two nights in this apartment- everything was as described. The owner was friendly and accomodating, the apartment itself very comfortable. No hesitation in recommending it.
This flat was in a perfect location for us, about four blocks from Kew Village, and only 2 blocks from our daughter's house. Christopher was the perfect host with great communication both before, during and after our stay. The flat was perfect for a couple, very comfortable and warm enough.
There were modern appliances (dishwasher, washer/dryer) at our disposal, lots of towels, and, the bedroom had a power strip (not sure what that is called in England), so we were able to charge all our various devices.
And in addition, in a really nice touch for an arrival on 12/22, a decorated small Christmas tree. What a nice touch.
We recently returned from a short stay at this lovely apartment. The owner was very communicative which ensured our stay ran smoothly.
The apartment is located just a short walk from Kew village with a few boutique shops, cafes and even a Michelin-starred restaurant.
It is then a further short walk to the Victoria Gate entrance of Kew Gardens. My sister lives here so it was useful to be so close, but equally if you were visiting Kew or even sight-seeing in London, the flat is very central and well-connected with transport links. We drove from Manchester in just 3.5 hours and it's a short drive from M4 J2. Literally straight off the motorway and you're there.
We were visiting Christmas at Kew Gardens (which was spectacular) and also took advantage of Kew Sparkle the night before which is a local celebration in the village with mulled wine, carol singers and market stalls.
The apartment was clean and spacious. Even though the cost worked out more expensive than staying in the nearby hotel, for us having the extra space was invaluable. The super comfortable lounge meant we could stay up and watch a film while our young son slept in the bedroom and the kitchen was perfect for family meals. Which don't get chance to sit and eat together much so this was particularly special.
Staying here is like living as a local and as it is such a desirable location this is a real treat! We would definitely return if Christopher would have us. It's not easy travelling with a family but having this apartment made it such a nicer experience. Would highly recommend.
We are a family with 2 young children and the apartment was perfect for our stay. The decor is tasteful and elegant, the bedroom is quiet and comfortable, the kitchen is well laid out, and the bathroom has a walk-in shower and underfloor heating! It is just a short walk to Kew Gardens and to the Underground station with its parade of shops, bars and restaurants.
Christopher was a very helpful host and he provided us with parking vouchers for the street. We certainly hope to stay again.
Nice comfortable neighborhood in Kew Gardens. Close to the Train station, restaurants and shops. Nice ground level apartment. A little dated with minor upgrades needed, but everything worked out well. For my wife and I, this is a keeper. Far enough from the hustle and bustle of London for peace and quiet, but close enough by public train to enjoy the attractions of London. Save your money and the hastle of driving a rental car. Get Oyster cards for your family members and make getting around in London enjoyable.
A comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment exactly as described in a pleasant area with lots of restaurants near by.
Ideal location especially for the Rugby but equally for visits to all parts of London especially with an Oyster Card. The bus stops and station were all within easy walking distance even for someone like myself who has walking difficulties.
We had no problems with communication, information or administration.
We would definitely stay there again and will recommend this flat to all our friends. Thanks Chris for a great stay.
