Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four -- including two (2) small children ages 3 and 8 -- had a wonderful stay at this absolutely charming walkup in South Kensington. Perfect location. Walkable to 3 tube stations with only a 10 minute ride to downtown sites, great neighborhood restaurants, close to national history and science museums and Royal Albert Hall and probably 5 minute walk to large Waitrose with wonderful groceries.

The apartment itself was very large. Spacious living and dining areas. Very high end kitchen and furnishings. Tastefully decorated throughout. Plus, as an added bonus, access to a private green or garden behind the building, with lovely seating areas and small playground perfect for our two little ones.

Tanya, the owner, was warm and helpful throughout -- timely with her responses to questions prior to our booking and timely in meeting us at the property upon our arrival. Special thanks to her for accommodating our early arrival. The Noon check-in was particularly appreciated given our two younger children.

We hope to make it back again someday soon! Great great week in London.

Wonderful, spacious, safe, apartment with very comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed in this apartment, along with our two young adult sons, for one week. We were very comfortable throughout our stay, and impressed with the amount of space, the location, and the classy appearance of the apartment. The neighborhood is very safe and there are lots of restaurants and stores nearby. A few other points worth noting:

1. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had. The owner greeted us upon arrival and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment, including how to work the dishwasher and washing machine/drier, which was very helpful.

2. During our stay, we had a few unusually warm days. The apartment has four very large windows, and it was great to open them up and get some cool air and wonderful breezes in the apartment.

3. The apartment has two large beds. The beds were super comfortable. They also set up a rollaway bed for us, at our request, which was great for us. Since the living room is so large, we were able to tuck the rollaway bed into a corner of the living room, turning the apartment essentially into "three" bedrooms, and giving our sons privacy. (With the pocket door and the curtains, the living room can be completely closed off from the rest of the apartment).

4. The large windows allow for some very nice street views, and garden views.

5. The WiFi worked great, dishwasher/washing machines worked fine, plenty of hot water for showers.

5. The only caution I would give, for anyone with health or mobility issues, is that there are several steps to get from the street level into the building, and then 42 steps up a sort of spiral-type staircase, to get to the apartment itself.

In summary, we were very happy and comfortable in this beautiful apartment, whether we were sitting around the kitchen table enjoying a meal, or sitting around the large living room watching a game on the television. I was sad to leave!

Highly recommended flat - comfortable, spacious, and very convenient to tube

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay in London at this flat. We stayed for one week - two adults, and two kids (ages 8 and 11) - and the flat made the trip feel like we were living in London for the week. The flat is absolutely perfectly situated - it is close to the tube and a short walk from fantastic restaurants and lovely strolls through beautiful residential neighborhoods. The accessibility to three lines made it easy to get around London very efficiently. The apartment itself was spacious, well-equipped, and very comfortable. Most important, our hosts helped answer all questions, and provided assistance throughout our stay - with recommendations, helping book cars, and anything else we needed. We would highly recommend this flat to travelers, including those with families.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 great days with my husband and our two daughters in this great apartment. We know London and the area well. As it is said in the description, the location is very practical. You are close to the tube, restaurants, a great pub and shops for groceries. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and very nicely decorated. Cherry on the cake the owners are extremely nice and helpful.

We will be back for sure.

Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 days in London with my daughter and 2 granddaughters. Tanya arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport which was wonderful. The apartment was well located and very comfortable. There were great restaurants nearby and we felt very safe walking home in the evening. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting London. It was great!

Lovely London!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious apartment, perfectly located super close to Gloucester Road tube station. Close to many shops and restaurants and pubs and easy walking distance to mid-town attractions or very easily connectable with public transport. Having multiple key sets was really appreciated---make comings and goings easy, even when our family group split up. The Home Away process was easy, the flat was just as advertised, and we will definitely come back for another fabulous London get-away!

This flat does provide the privilege to our guests with staying at a real luxury home in the heart of the city at the most elite neighbourhood with access to its own private garden rather than a 'skeleton' flat/hotel. The flat is located a street away from SW7 which is the most prestigious area code in UK! It is a short 7 minutes walk to Gloucester Road Station which is amazing as it hosts 3 major lines (Circle, District and Piccadilly). The flat has absolutely 0 exposure to underground noise and/or vibrations so please do not be concerned in that respect.

Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum are only about a 12 min. walking distance away from the flat making it indisputably the perfect location for a visitor.

Similarly, Hyde Park and for shopping Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Sloane Square (Saatchi gallery!) are extremely near both walkable or a very short bus ride as well as the famous style and fashion hub King's Road being only 10 mins walking distance away from this quiet residential flat.

If you like we can also assist in arranging a taxi to pick you up / drop you to the airport should you wish. (it will cost about half of what it would cost to get a regular black cab from/to the airport)
