About Stephen McQuillan

I work from home very close to where the apartment is located, running a small business, letting and managing properties for my clients.

Having worked in the business for some 15 years, I am quite familiar with this property, which belongs to one of my clients who lives abroad.

Why Stephen McQuillan chose Kensington & Chelsea

Quite simply, it's a home away from home!

Comfy apartment for two in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well furnished and comfy little apartment just two blocks from the Earl's Court underground stop (great for in/out to Heathrow as well as getting around the city). Overall it's a good size for two; might be a bit tight for more (except children). You do have to keep the windows closed at night due to Cromwell Road traffic, but they are very good at blocking sound. Everything functions well; the wifi is great. The neighborhood has great eating options.The rental agent, Stephen, is exceptionally courteous and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Always a pleasure to deal with the nice people I've welcomed to the little flat I use for holiday rentals! Blaise and his partner Virginia were exceptionally pleasant to deal with and I'll be more than happy to have them again!

Cozy apartment near Earl's court

  • 4 of 5

This is a good size one bedroom apt very close to Earl's court tube station, restaurants, grocery stores and parks. Kensinton Palace and park, Hyde Park and Holland Park are all just a short walk. We also walked to Harrod's in Knightsbridge. We enjoyed it very much and Stephen was great. Very welcoming. Definitely would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Very kind words! Many thanks indeed, although the location isn't anything to do with me, but you're quite right. I live in Earls Court myself and don't find much need to travel around London much for anything, other than by choice!

Excellent apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is well maintained, close to underground stations, restaurants and supermarkets. Kitchen is well equipped. Fast internet. If we can suggest removing one of the computer tables to provide a bit more room. Excellent and quick communication with the property manager who is exceptionally courteous and accommodating indeed, he met us at the underground station and led us to the apartment, while providing a lot of interesting and useful information about the area and London.Thank you so much for a great place to stay during our vacation. We would highly recommend this place to everyone who would visit this beautiful city.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words Peter! I'm not in the habit of following reviews for the sake of gaining such compliments. the job of providing a comfortable place for people to stay isn't exactly rocket science after all. But your words are much appreciated. I'll be happy to be of assistance to you again in the future if you visit London again!

Great option for an extended visit to London.

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely perfect location for sightseeing. Comfortable for a couple and one child. Close to Tube, near restaurants, groceries, bakeries and pubs. Quiet building, even on busy street. Lots of natural light. Bus service close by.

Only suggestion we had was to get rid of superfluous furniture that make apartment feel closed in. Who needs two computer desks and three empty bookcases?

Agent Steven McQuillan was great, full of information about the neighborhood. He even bought a French press for our coffee.

We and our thirteen year old grand-daughter enjoyed our stay and recommend it.

Great flat stay in Earls Court April 2017 - wonderful property manager

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about our experience on 21-28th April, 2017 with Stephen McQuillan, and the property he manages in Earls Court. Stephen is extremely responsive, helpful and very hands-on, but yet never intrusive in his efforts to make one’s stay a wonderful experience. For those new to the area, he is a wealth of knowledge, and conversely he stays in the background just a phone call away for the more experienced. We celebrated our 32nd anniversary here and found the flat to be perfectly sized, appointed, cleaned, equipped and located. Staying on the top floor of this wonderful former home (just one block from Alfred Hitchcocks’s former London residence) was an experience we will always remember fondly. Thank you Stephen! Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: How very kind of you to say so Mac & Jeanne! It's always been a pleasure dealing with people staying at Cromwell Rd in fact and is the best part of the work I do! I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed it so much! Thank you! Stephen

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in the flat, which is ideally located in the west end of London. Only five minutes from the Earl's Court Underground, we were easily able to get everywhere we wanted to go within London, and grocery stores, ATM's, and restaurants were all within easy walking distance. Best of all was working with Stephen, the leasing agent. I was a bit hesitant to book a rental through vrbo.com, but reading what others had to say about Stephen convinced me that he was someone to be trusted . . . and he was! Kind, knowledgeable, generous, and responsible, he did everything he could to make our stay a pleasant one, and he is a fond part of our newly-made London memories. We would stay again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Stephen!

Owner's Response: Laura Your kind words are somewhat overwhelming I have to say - thank you very much! As I think I said to you while you were here, there's not a lot involved in doing a job like this the right way. People who just chase money have no idea. If you do things the right way to begin with, the money just follows! It was a pleasure having you stay and I'm so pleased your holiday in London was made even better by your stay at Cromwell Rd! You'd be welcome again anytime! And with a discount too! Kindest regards and again, best wishes with your flood! Stephen
