About Vivien lee

Hello my name is Vivien lee and I have two children and eight grandchildren so I know a little bit about kids. I have been with home away now for nearly Five years and they are a nice company to work with.

Why Vivien lee chose England

Beechwood Grove is a cosy little flat quite central to Kensington and Notting Hill Gate... 10 minutes. There are buses everywhere and the tube is 10 minutes walk. The flat sleeps three very comfortably. There is a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa in the sitting room which is huge and comfortable. Remove the back cushions and it is like a single bed.

What makes this apartment unique

A great bus outside the house which takes you all OVER WEST LONDON TO KENSINGTON. TUBE CENTRAL LINE ZONE 2 also train station to Kew Gardens and beyond ten min walk near park. Quiet unique area. SAFE!!

1 bedroom flat 7 minutes drive from Kensington (honestly) with private parking and lovely gardens. Out side the flat you have a bus that takes you straight to High street Kensington and Queensway. there are also buses trains and tubes ( all very close by) that take you anywhere in to central London, or you can get the train and go to Richmond Royal Park or Hampton Court just 10 minutes on the train. We are also only 3 bus stops away from the biggest and brand new shopping centre in Europe Westfield. There you have everything from designer wear to kitchen pots and pans. It is open until 12pm every night apart from Sunday when it closes at 10pm. so when you're bored (and you won't be ) you can browse the fabulous shops and restaurants. From there IF you have any energy left, you can cross the road and walk up Holland Park Avenue and visit the world famous Portobello Road which is open every day but, Saturday is the big day, where you can buy vintage clothes & antiques

Golf: If you want to play tennis for the weekend I can always arrange you a game in my club in Holland Park which is friendly and very good standard.

Not at all what we expected

  • 1 of 5

We chose this flat based on all of the 5 star reviews. It was not at all what we expected. The bathroom had no towel racks, only one command hook which fell down when we put a wet towel on it. We ended up draping our wet towels over the doors. There were only bath towels; no hand towels or wash clothes and one of the bath towels had holes in it. There was only two rolls of toilet paper and no facial tissues or paper towels. For three people who were staying 10 days that was clearly unacceptable. We had to go out and purchase our own paper products. The one smoke detector in the flat had no batteries and was hanging open. The mattress in the bedroom needs to be replaced; we could feel the springs when you slept. The sofa which my 18 year old son had to sleep on was extremely uncomfortable. He hardly slept our entire stay. The washer dryer combo was difficult to use and there was no owners manual to refer to for help. Plus, it was extremely small; we could only fit a few items of clothing in at a time. The clothes didn't always dry so we would have to go through the entire wash/dry cycle again in hopes of getting the clothes to dry. We did manage to find a drying rack in the kitchen which we used to dry our clothes. One of the lights in the kitchen had a bulb burned out and there was a distinctive musty door whenever we entered the flat (mold?). By the time we left, we were all sick. Since we were required to prepay when making the reservation, we stayed (reluctantly). Do yourselves a favor and stay far away from this flat. You will thank us later.

Excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the property and property condition, and Vivian was lovely. She answered all of our questions, assisted with transportation issues and was quite helpful in other ways, as well. The flat was clean and well stocked with linens and paper products, and was exactly as advertised. Should I ever have the opportunity to travel to London again, I would certainly stay at 14 Beechwood Grove again. Thanks, Vivian!

Great

  • 5 of 5

Hi my son and I stayed at Vivien's place. It worked great for us, we had cook-in breakfast in a.m., 10 min walk to subway/tube, then 20 minutes to downtown. And returned at night, safe walk back to apartment. Vivien also very accommodating on first day when we got lost and showed up an hour late. It was great doing a bit of laundry in the apartment as well. Ted

It's a Great flat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for RWC2015 watching games for 34 days.

It is 10 minutes to an underground station on foot

There is a bus stop of # 70 before a flat, and a very good condition of means of transportation has me.

Every condition to stay in a flat was set and was able to feel a heart errand of an owner.

In addition, it is the article which it wants to use by all means if there is an opportunity to go to London.
