Overview

About the property

3 bedroom mews house sleeps up to 6 located in Central London

This exclusive mews house was originally where the Victorians housed their horse and carriages, at the other end of their garden from the main large terrace houses; in the early 1930’s these were converted into quaint homes. The property is decorated to a very high standard and is tucked away in a quiet leafy mews.3 bedrooms each with their own facilities make living here vey easy and it is only a 3 minute walk to buses and a 5 minute walk to the underground railway system. Within a 10 minute underground train ride or a 20 minute bus ride you will be in the heart of the west end of London where department stores, theatres and restaurants are in abundance; there is even a bus that takes you direct to Harrods. Little Venice has its own restaurants, a fringe theatre and a lovely selection of old pubs. It boasts every amenity, from a fully equipped eat in kitchen, Satellite TV, DVD player and ADSL line. The office/library and TV/family area will satisfy your business and entertainment needs. Facing south the property feels bright and airy; a housekeeper attends once a week or more frequently if required.

NOTE THAT ALL TOILET ROLLS, TISSUES, SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER AND SOAP ARE INCLUDED AS ARE WASHING UP LIQUID ETC - YOU JUST MOVE IN AND ENJOY YOUR STAY FROM THE VERY START

SITE SEEING: London is one of the most enjoyable and attractive cities in the world. Its history is rich and the cosmopolitan life style intoxicating. Theatre's are close to the property and first class, as are globally renowned museums and libraries. All of what London has to offer is within easy reach from the house, with most underground trips only taking 15 minutes and most bus trips just 30 minutes. For example the underground station, within 400 metres of the house, takes you to the heart of the West End in 15 minutes. Further Harrods, the worlds greatest department store, is only a 25 minute bus ride away (the bus stop is 100 metres from the house).

Why Robert Drew chose Maida Vale

The area has all that one needs to enjoy traditional English pubs, and many restaurants all within walking distance, plus the Little Venice basin where two canals meet that provides an idyllic place to live and experience London life

What makes this house unique

You will really enjoy the quality of the house, the quality of furnishings and the wonderful location, together being in a leafy environment so close to the West End.

A lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Every bit the London gem! From the great location in Little Venice, to the comfortable surroundings it was the perfect place from which to explore London. Everything one needs is provided and after a long day out it was great to feel "at home" as opposed to just being a visitor.

Lovely home with easy access to central London

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this lovely Mews home for 8 days. The home is extremely well cared for, clean, comfortable and offers easy access to the sights of London. There were also several very good options for eating nearby for the evenings we returned early. The Red Pepper was a favorite. Their pizza is amazing! It also offers very close access (< 5 minute walk) to underground as well as a convenience store for grocery items on the corner.

The owner is very gracious and responsive to work with and anticipates his guests needs. There is an initial supply of breakfast items for your first morning as well as a lovely bottle of wine. We particularly enjoyed the food items left for us so we could enjoy breakfast and then get our bearings in the village.

There is a selection of books to enjoy, movies, television, computer/printer, etc for time spent relaxing at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would love an opportunity to stay again!!

Lovely townhouse in a good location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully furnished spacious townhouse in a quiet location residential location only a short walk to the tube station (Bakerloo line). While nearby pubs and restaurants were not numerous there were several which were quite good. The home is completely furnished with every amenity. We were 6 adults and the dining area off the kitchen could get crowded, especially at breakfast, the other areas were quite spacious. I highly recommend this place.

Traditional English Mews House in Central London

  • 5 of 5

Our two adult surrogate children, their spouses, and the two of us had the most wonderful 10 days in London. I was born in Oxford so have been back and forth to England umpteen times but not our children. What made this trip exceptional was the darling Mews house, so English and perfectly located. The host provided the most detailed information prior to our arrival so our plans were all laid out ahead of time. We used Empire Chauffeur service for longer trips to Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon, plus airport pickups. We become "part of the local scene" at the nearby Prince Alfred Pub, the bakery and grocery shop. All recommended by the host. The house was beautifully furnished and many personal photos made it feel just like home. Lots of hot water and plenty of storage for suitcases. Lots of coat hangers. We always pack a few extra but we really didn't need to do so this time. Even the neighbors were friendly and so inviting. I will highly recommend this darling house to others.

Perfect Home in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family had the privilege of staying in this beautiful home during our 7 day visit to London. The home is bright, tastefully decorated and located in an ideal spot within a 5 minute walk to the Underground station. The area of Little Venice was charming with its canal and good pubs and restaurants. We were able to access all the sights of London by using the underground which was very easy and economical to use.

It is obvious the owners take pride in their home and have thought of everything to help make your visit a pleasant one. There was even some food and wine waiting for us when we arrived.

We highly recommend this property to anyone travelling to London. It is a comfortable, charming, convenient property and helped to make our London holiday a wonderful experience. In addition, the owner is a pleasure to work with and is most accommodating. We will certainly stay here again when we return to the UK.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had lived in London twice -- in the early 90's and late-00's. Our 17 day visit did not disappoint. As previous visitors have written, the house was great for location, ease of transportation (buses were plentiful and went just about every direction), ease of grocery shopping, access to lovely pubs and restaurants within walking distance, etc. Bombay Take-Away will deliver and their food was delicious. You can order Italian takeaway from D-Daniela very close by -- it is a lovely small restaurant for in-house dining. Bring your own wine - small corkage fee.

The housekeeper, Dorianna, was very helpful and the place was clean and well stocked. It was especially comfortable to relax in the evenings -- it was also easy to prepare meals when we elected to do so.

Our 10 month old grandson was with us on this trip and a travel cot and high chair were provided for him. It was relatively easy to have him there and to our delight, he was content to play with his own toys and not go after the many lovely items located in the living room and library.

We would definitely rent the house again on any future visit and we have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and other family members.
