Apartment, 2 Bedrooms +Sofa bed + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

A beautiful and generously sized duplex maisonette with a large private south facing terrace in the heart of Fitzrovia, Central London.The street is free of any traffic allowing our guests to enjoy a quiet relaxing stay in the middle of London!

Arranged over the second and top floors of a well maintained Victorian building in the heart of fashionable Fitzrovia, this beautiful large two bedroom maisonette offers bright, modern interiors/whilst keeping its period charm and has a superb south facing private roof terrace.

The property comprises reception room with ample dining space and contemporary open-plan kitchen,with divine corian worktops, two good-sized double bedrooms and bathroom suite with separate walk-in shower and separate bath with additional hand held shower.Please see our floor plan.

The flat comes fully equipped to make your stay in Central London most enjoyable. No corners are cut on towels or linens/and there are plenty spare for those who don't wish to wash and dry on holiday.

Apartment Features: We're happy to arrange our cleaner to come in if this is requested.

The living room has a flat LCD TV and DVD player with a selection of DVD's to watch during your stay. .A WI game console is also provided.

The flat was fully refurbished less than three years ago and features solid oak flooring throughout, provencial stonework in the bathroom and integrated kitchen appliances.There's a dishwasher/fridge/freezer,ceramic glass hob and plenty of pots and pans for those wishing to cook meals at home. A water filter is also supplied.There's a filter coffee maker, a French Press and an espresso machine. There's an excellent choice of shops that sell fresh ground coffee.

We Just added a new sofa bed.

Our lovely terrace has plenty of room for outdoor dining(London weather permitting...) and also has a barbecue.The terrace is such a wonderful place to relax after a day out in London.

The kitchen has all mod cons and also a selection of cookery books should you wish to experiment at home.

There's a selection of grocery shops within a five minute walk of the flat, Sainsbury's, Marks and Spencer, Tesco and Waitrose will have all you need for your stay.

There's the independent Villandry on Great Portland St for the more special culinary treat...and also the simply fantastic La Fromagerie for cheese.This is one of the best cheese shops in London.

The bathroom has very good water pressure and constant hot water ,so there will be no worries for larger groups staying at the flat.The flat benefits from independent central heating for the somewhat cold British winters.

Both bedrooms have wardrobes with hanging space and suitcases can easily be put to the side of these.

Cleveland Street is home to a number of local shops, cafe's and restaurants and is well positioned close to Charlotte Street and Oxford Street.

Fitzrovia is a neighbourhood in central London, near London's West End lying partly in the London Borough of Camden (in the east) and partly in the City of Westminster (in the west); and situated between Marylebone and Bloomsbury and north of Soho.

More about Fitzrovia: This historically bohemian area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud, Bob Dylan played one of his first shows just down the road.

A few minutes away is Fitzroy Sq...a piece of Georgian design that has aged beautifully.A few more blocks away and one can view the architecture of Nash and his row of terrace houses near Regents Park.

For those traveling with young children a visit to Pollocks Toy Museum on nearby Whitfield St will be sure to delight them.The perfect place to pick up gifts for those back home! I have to admit even I go in there and I'm always in awe of the treasures of childhoods past that they have on display.Next door is their theatre print shop...again...well worth a visit. Whilst on the subject of theatre there's the Theatre Bookshop on Conway St with its numerous books on all theatre related matters.

The number of restaurants on nearby Charlotte St really is amazing.There's something to cater to every taste and budget! We can assure you that you'll love this street.This street is less than 5 minutes from the flat.

The London Zoo is nearby and this should delight all ages.

The nearby shopping on Oxford St will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans are simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.

Cozy and comfy

  • 4 of 5

Booked to stay here as I was running the London marathon. I had 5 people with me so this apartment was ideal and more affordable than a hotel. Also it's more sociable. The area around is full of bars and restaurants also a couple of supermarkets. Easy access to tube aswell. Stairs where a little steep especially after 26 miles would stay here again

Great location, amazing hosts, comfortable space

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite VRBO experience to date. James went above and beyond host duties - allowing us to drop our bags early so we could make a soccer game as soon as we landed, printing out our boarding passes and delivering them to our apartment, and allowing us to leave our bags past checkout time so we could do one last guided walk, unencumbered by luggage. Plus he was super responsive on email, answering my questions within minutes.

The space looked exactly as it did in the pictures (sometimes a problem). Just minutes walk from 3 tube stations and with several restaurants steps away, this was a great base for an action-packed vacation. The shower had great heat and water pressure and the option of the bathtub was lovely. Towels were good size and there was plenty of extra bedding, if needed. Having the separate upstairs sitting room was lovely. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment, so spacious and comfortable. The flat is in a nice neighborhood, lots of pubs nearby and a grocery store just a few blocks away. The master bed is extremely plush, we slept better than any rental in recent memory and our son enjoyed his choice of beds in the second bedroom. Flat is loaded with books, travel guides, movies, video games, and full cable tv for in house entertainment. We highly recommend this apartment for families.

très bien placé, conforme à la description

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement est très sympa, dans un quartier central, calme et authentique. Nous y étions en février et le chauffage marchait parfaitement. Il est également très bien équipé. Un seul tout petit bémol : l'eau chaude est capricieuse.

Very nice stay in a cosy appartment and neighborhood! Recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been in London in the Last december (four adult and one child). Our stay in the appartment was very pleasant. The house is fully equipped, warm, clean and quiet (the only remark is about the shower, warm water goes and comes all the time but the bathroom is Also equipped with a bathtub). We had a very good location, few minutes walk from Oxford street and M.me Tousseaud Museum. The neighborhood is very nice with pubs, restaurants and a supermarket just out of the door. Charlene and James are really kind and well organized. I really recommend this accomodation and hope to come back again.

Situated in Central London ,a few minutes walk to Oxford Steet. There are so many attractions close by that public transport or a car won't be necessary!

Fitzrovia is home to several traditional English pubs. We suggest that you have at least one drink in one.If you're staying on a Sunday, a pub Sunday Roast with all the trimmings is a great way to spend an afternoon.Most pubs have lovely outside space,so for those coming to London in the summer months this is a must.We have a selection of good pubs in our guidebook.

Art is the word in Fitzrovia. There are numerous Art Galleries in the area. The owners are friendly and don't mind people popping in for a look.

Escape the pressure of everyday life as you loosen up within one of London’s finest spas, Spa illuminata. It has been said to give out one of the best massages that you could possibly imagine. Apart from that, it does not give an all female vibe, as it has been a place for the secret male spa-goer. One of the best treatments that it offers is the Decleor Harmonie facial, with scalp, hand and head massage. Spa Illuminata is located in Mayfair.This is about 10 minutes from the flat..

Berkeley Spa would surely help you unwind from the stress of the city as it lets you unwind with certain therapies such as facials and calming massages. Clients swear the results such as soft and rejuvenated skin afterwards a treatment. The Berkeley Spa is located near Hyde Park.15 min from the flat.

If you're coming to London with some of your closest girlfriends then a vist to the women's only Sanctuary in nearby Covent Garden is a great day to spend a full day or early evening.This is 7 minutes from the flat.

For those wishing to keep fit whilst on holiday one will find that walking around Central London should do the trick.However, a number of gyms now offer daily memberships at a good rate.Good Vibes is an excellent yoga/spinning studio located 5 minutes from the flat.A run in Regent's Park is also a lovely way of getting some fresh air.
