|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This charming historic mews house was bought as our own home and therefore doesn't look or feel like a rental home at all . It is furnished with our own antique furniture , fine art and high quality furniture . We are now renting it because we have moved to the country but we still stay there when we are in london and it is not rented .
The house offers the best experience of staying in a prime London location . It is located in Belgravia ( close to Margaret Thatcher and the Sultan of Brunei ! ) and is excellently positioned for access to all of London's attractions . Two subway stations are within 5 minutes walk , Harrods is 10 minutes away on foot , Buckingham Palace is less and on a summers evening the theatre district is only a 25 minute stroll for those who want to take in the atmosphere or a 10 minute cab ride .
All the major museums and other attractions such as the houses of Parliament , the London Eye and many others including some of the world's most famous shopping are within easy reach . Imagine walking up to the Palace to see the famous changing of the guard and then being able to stroll back to the peace and quiet of your own house .
The house itself is a quiet oasis in the middle of the city . Set in a cobbled mews there is no through traffic and sometimes it is hard to believe that you are so central . The house comes fully equipped with a new kitchen including all the obvious facilities , there is cable TV , a Bang and Olufsen stereo system and a computer available although you are welcome to bring your own and connect to the Wi-Fi throughout the house . In addition , all phone calls both local and international are included in the rental ( provided the calls are kept below 59 minutes long ) so you can keep in touch with family and friends back home while you are away .
There are 2 large bedrooms both with modern en-suite bathrooms . The master bedroom has a beautiful four-poster queen sized bed in keeping with the traditional feel of the whole house . The second bedroom is configured with two single beds. In addition there is a surprisingly comfortable fold-away single bed in the study which can be used if required .
Belgravia , and London generally , is home to some excellent local restaurants and there are all the usual everyday shops (Grocery stores , pharmacies etc) all available within a very short walk and the cafes and bakeries on the next door Elizabeth street are charming and an excellent way to while away a morning in the sun ( hopefully ! ) and take in all the local atmosphere of one of the world's great cities .
So come and enjoy a stay in what can only be described as 'The Best of British' .

Maison très bien placée dans belgravia ,le transport depuis l'aéroport est assuré par Ted Phillips qui est super sympathique ,convient parfaitement à une famille avec trois enfants comme nous.
Three ladies on a girls' trip enjoyed this perfect central Mews House for a week. We could not have asked for a better location, well appointed and charming house. A quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of so much - local restaurants and shops, Victoria tube, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner and so much more. We truly felt like locals for 7 days!
Ted the owner's driver picked us up from the airport and transported us to the house, what a wonderful service after a long transatlantic flight. Ted was full of useful and interesting information and gave us a tour of the neighborhood so we could get our bearings ahead of time.
The house has everything one would need away from home, with both en-suite bathrooms having been very recently remodeled to a high standard.
There was indeed construction at the house next door, but as we were out all day it did not bother us at all, but if one had young children this may be something to consider.
Would most definitely recommend this lovely Belgravia property and we hope to return!
frequent user of VRBO and I have to say this is one of my favorite places I have stayed. the owners were great on meeting us and arranging transportation from airport. great location. this was a trip that I brought my daughter and her boyfriend for their college graduation. he has never been out of states and I think this rental spoiled him. I would stay here again and highly recommend this rental to anyone thinking of traveling to London. thanks again for making this a great vacation.
What a wonderful extra to have Ted meet us at the airport with such enthusiasm and knowledge. When we arrived at the house we were also welcomed with a very nice basket of snacks, fresh flowers, milk, coffee, tea and other basics. The house was very comfortable, beautifully decorated, perfectly appointed kitchen, and located in a very quiet neighborhood filled with lots of green spaces and good restaurants. We even managed to use the roof outdoor space on a couple of sunny afternoons in London! The only problem we had was with a brand new shower which the owner did everything humanly possible to address. The one drawback was having to do a bank transfer to pay for the rental (from the USA). This was time consuming (2 trips to the bank for deposit and balance), expensive, and a challenge to coordinate the correct exchange rate. While we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mews, as a personal preference, I will not rent property in the future that does not take a credit card, check, or PayPal.
We are frequent users of VRBO and this was clearly one of our all-time favorites. The location is superb making most of London's sites available by foot. The two bedrooms, both with newly updated ensuite baths, make traveling with another couple or family very comfortable.
The home itself is charming and comes equipped with everything you need. You get a real sense that you are staying in someone's home not just a rental and I cannot say enough about our hosts. There were so many small touches that added to the magic of the place. Window boxes and planters were filled with spring flowers. Easter candy and snacks were strategically placed and the refrigerator was stocked with a few essentials. After a long flight I particularly enjoyed my very British gin and tonic.
The roof-top patio would be wonderful in the summer; and while we had sunny Spring weather, the temperatures really didn't allow us to make full use of its potential. Guess we'll just have to go back....and we will!
My friend and I rented this house to go and visit our children who are staying in London. The house is in a great location and is a quick walk to Victoria station or sloane square tube. We preferred the walk to Sloan square as it was charming and that station is much smaller. The driver ,Ted , who picked us up at the airport was charming. He drove us around the area before he dropped us off and was so kind and even showed me the house in Kensington where my daughter was staying while was studying abroad.
The house was lovely and well taken care of. The bedrooms were comfortable, new bathrooms, roof top deck was great for morning yoga and coffee and the living room was comfortable and cozy. The house is on four levels so lots of stairs but that just added to the charm. The owners were very thoughtful and responded when we had a problem turning on the hot water. The location is great and we could walk to so many places . Restaurants, coffee shops and the market are all very close and we felt like real Londoners during our stay as we were in a great residential neighborhood.
The only word of caution is on our second to last day construction began on the house next door. This did not bother us as we were up and out early. However, if you like to sleep in or have young children that nap I would inquire about the status of this construction project.
We had a wonderful trip and would rent this home again without hesitation!
