Chelsea: exceptional 1BR w/views of the River Thames & Battersea Park

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with stunning views of the Thames and Battersea

1 bedroom flat with stunning views of the river Thames and Battersea Park from both the living room and bedroom. In the entrance hall you’ll notice the wooden panelled walls and hanging chandelier which set the sophisticated tone for the rest of the home. Step into the sitting room and feel your toes against the plush, red rug which lies before the large double sofa (it folds into a sofa bed for guests). Recline and admire the rose bouquet which sits on the fireplace, or the red brocade curtain drapes. Find the lever along the wood panelled wall until it slides to reveal a hidden kitchen, complete with super-slick chrome fixtures and modern appliances. Head into the master bedroom where a muted, teal wallpaper will lull you into a sense of calm. Relax on the king size bed beside the stylish, industrial radiator, and watch the wall-mounted television, or pamper yourself before the floor-ceiling mirrors. Next door in the brand new shower room, enjoy a luxurious power-shower while a fluffy towel heats on the shiny chrome rack.

Great London vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently got back from a trip to London and Scotland. This flat was the perfect place to stay during the London part of our trip. Beautiful view of the Thames, comfortable surroundings, close to Tube Station and restaurants. And great hospitality as well, with a bottle of wine to greet us on arrival. Would definitely recommend this location and will also plan on coming back!

Three Days in Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I leased this flat for 3 days on our return to the United States. The flat was well-appointed with a wonderful view to the Thames River and easy walk to Sloane Square Station, which connects with the Central and District lines. Our interactions with Diana in leasing the flat were flawless and the London property manager, Jose, was a responsive and charming host. The flat lived up to VRBO description and photographs as well as our expectations. Based on our experience, we can recommend this flat for any couple seeking a well-appointed flat in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to all that London has to offer.

Fabulous stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The flat at Embankment Gardens overlooking the Thames is a gem! Beautifully appointed & well equipped. Everything you could possibly need is provided & more: fresh flowers,wine, chocolates & coffee!!

The Chelsea area is a beautiful neighborhood. Grocery & bus stop 1 block away. Also 2 Gordon Ramsay restaurants & a wonderful pub around the corner. Maybe 15 minute walk to Sloan Square tube stop.

We found our stay to be one of the most relaxing ever.

A true gem, in so many ways

  • 5 of 5

This is a phenomenal property with great attention to detail that makes all the difference. It's on the Embankment, but overall very quiet (thanks to the triple paned window in the bedroom) and lets you live a little more like a local. The flat itself is bijou but smartly thought through and designed to get in all the amenities in a small space. They really have thought of everything for our comfort and convenience. Jose, who greeted us, blends professionalism and kindness, which is a rare and wonderful trait. We'll be back.

A lovely flat

  • 5 of 5

This Chelsea flat is beautifully located overlooking the Thames, and within 10 minutes walk of the King's Road and Sloane Square. The flat is ideal for a couple and is very comfortable and well equipped. It included small but important items like Nespresso pods, a range of teas, a complimentary bottle of wine, dishwasher tablets and laundry detergent. The flat was warm and quiet, both in terms of other residents and traffic noise. Overall it has exceeded our expectations.

Highly recommended and we will book it again when we're back in London.

Car: not necessary

Traditionally a haunt for the London bohemia, Chelsea is now one of the city’s most affluent areas, with wide, elegant boulevards of period properties. Take a trip to King’s Road and Sloane Square and Avenue, the crown jewel of London haute-couture. In times past it was also a haven to artists, scientists, and many other influential people.

Chelsea was originally known as the “village of palaces” in the 17th Century, the only residents being those in palatial manor houses. Residents included Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More, Elizabeth I, the Duke of Monmouth and the Duke of Beaufort.

On Embankment Gardens’ doorstep you’ll of course find the upscale Chelsea Embankment, with its wide view of the Thames and the elegant Ranelagh Gardens. Further north, explore the shopping delights of King’s Road, and the world famous museums of South Kensington. Central London is accessible in just 20 minutes via the nearby Sloane Square underground station.
