About Sarah Green

Ive been living in the area for 12 years now and we love it. We have two small children and the area is great for parks and for walking into the city via Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

Sarah Green purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sarah Green chose Kensington & Chelsea

Our place is perfect for a city break - it is easy to get into town via bus or tube but when you need to have some quiet time you can easily retreat back to W14 to enjoy the quiet leafy streets (beautiful in the spring when the cherry trees are out), the local pubs and restaurants or just put your feet up in the lounge, have the fire roaring to keep you toasty and read a book. The bedrooms are at the back so are extra quiet and great for a good nights sleep and the church bell gives it a real village feel even though you are only 7 minutes walk to the nearest tube station (shepherds bush central line).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was perfect for fall break. The kids loved the wifi! (so did mum and dad) Grandma loved having her own room. We will recommend this flat for its fantastic location and all the great extras.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this London apartment. It was clean, well-equipped, and the owners were very easy to deal with. Metros were a relatively easy walking distance and the neighborhood was quite lovely and felt very safe.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We (5 persons) had a very lovely week at the apartment! It is clean, at a nice location and has everything you need on a holiday. The Greens provided us with all information already before arrival, made us feel safe and welcome. Sarah responded quickly to our questions and gave us useful tips during our stay. The only slight minus someone might think is that you can hear the neighbours easily but hey! - that's the sound of life ;). Thank you once more!

good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Flat was comfortable, convenient to Tube, and well stocked. The neighborhood is pleasant, pubs nearby. Shops are a bit distant but within walking distance. A bit ppricey, but within range of typical London charges.

The hosts were available and helpful by phone.

There were some minor problems in using the facilities, because of differences in US-English devices, and in regulating the heat. More detailed instructions would be helpful. Because of the complicated street alignments in London, some more detail on reaching the flat would also be helpful.

Strongly recommend for 2-4 people.

Posto tranquillo ma vicino a metro e negozi

  • 4 of 5

Casa comoda per la posizione e per una piacevole vacanza. Zona residenziale tranquilla tipica inglese con villette a schiera ma vicinissima alla fermata metro Shepherd Bush e centro commerciale Westfield. Spazi ridotti ma adatti per una vacanza, consiglierei una pulizia più accurata in particolare per i tendaggi e la sostituzione della moquette con un pavimento più lavabile e igienico. La proprietaria Sarah disponibilissima. Grazie

W14 is a beautiful location in West London. You get the best of both worlds as it is a short journey to the hustle and bustle of Oxford Circus and Bond Street whilst being a short walk from the River Thames and the leafy spaces of Holland Park; you can jump on a bus to South Kensington to visit the Natural History Museum or Victoria and Albert Museum; or you can stroll down High Street Kensington to check out some shops and cafes which follows into Kensington Gardens and into Knightsbridge. Locally, there are some great restaurants and cafes for breakfast or a leisurely coffee or you can visit some of our well known local gastropubs. We are a 15 minute walk to the River Thames where you can enjoy a drink whilst watching the world pass by. The latest addition to the area is 'Westfield' which is 10 minutes walk towards Shepherds Bush - this is currently Europe's largest shopping centre.

Other Activities: Shopping, visiting the sights of London
