This luxury apartment is situated in a pretty gated, landscaped courtyard with a private garden in the heart of London. It is extremely central and within walking distance of the British Museum, London University and the new British Library. Public transport (busses and metro) to all parts of London is just a short walk away. A large large children's playground incorporating a small zoo (Coram Fields) is a 5 minute walk away. We are also just minutes away from the recently renovated award winng Brunswick Center which includes London's best supermarket, cafes, and boutique shops and an art cinema. This is a family owned apartment, available at reasonable rates, and is suitable for visitors who would enjoy living in the comfort of somewhere like home in central London. Please note the property is available for a minimum stay of 5 nights.
This apartment did not dissappoint in any way. The owner were so welcoming and helpful, and the standard of the flat superb. I highly recommend staying here.
I visited London for a two week vacation with my 3 adult children, and we all agreed that we'd made the right choice for our London flat. The flat is comfortable, roomy, well-equipped, filled with beautiful art, and we loved returning home to it each night after a busy day in London. The location can't be beat: It's part of a quiet, interesting neighborhood with only a 5 minute walk to a large grocery store and miscellaneous shops and restaurants, and another 5 minute walk to the subway/train station. The owners promptly answered all of our many pre-visit questions, and personally met us at the flat on our day of arrival. Very kind and considerate. I look forward to my next visit to London, and will definitely try to book this flat again!
Reviews of this rental are spot on: Apartment is well-maintained, centrally located and quiet. We had a wonderful experience with the Anleys and were so appreciative of the warm welcome we received on arrival. Our party of five (two adults and three children under 10) had plenty of room in the two-story flat to spread out and relax after a day of sightseeing. Rooms were cozy and outdoor garden was a nice urban eascape. The only problem we had was getting the kids to leave! We all loved the flat and would definitely stay here again.
Once again, a lovely stay in this very comfortable, cozy house. We stayed here four years ago, and wanted to come back as it is so centrally located for us. It's just a few blocks from Kings Cross/St. Pancras. Olga was there to make sure when we arrived that we knew where everything was, how things worked, and her husband got our laptop working! This house is so well maintained, the kitchen is a joy to either make breakfast, have snacks at the ready, keep our white wine cold, etc. And t's so nice to have two bathrooms! Plus a third powder room downstairs. We ate French pastries at the Deux Amis Patisserie, the North Sea Fish Restaurant (best fish and chips ever), the Chinese restaurant just a few blocks away, and Harrison's (I think that was the name - just around the corner) for Sunday roast dinner. I can't even imagine staying in a hotel when we can stay in our own place, living like the locals, in absolutely comfort. Thank you to the Anleys!!
If you are debating among VRBO properties in central London, look no further - you will love staying here! This spacious, beautifully furnished townhome is in a perfect location very close to Kings Cross/St Pancras, yet it is SO quiet and serene, both inside and outside in the Asian-inspired garden. The large picture window and the French doors in the living room bring the garden ambience inside. The photos (while nice) do not do it justice. The master bed is very comfortable and the re-modeled insuite bath is a dream; the heated bathroom floor was an extra nice touch on chilly mornings. The modern kitchen is great, and the refrigerator was stocked for us with some basic food items. The townhome is immaculately clean. Vases filled with daffodils added an extra nice touch. What a wonderful place to come home to, especially after long work days (it was a business trip for me). Olga and Vernon welcomed my husband and me upon our arrival and they are a delight. We enjoyed 18 marvelous days in late April to mid-May 2015 at this "home away from home." Highly recommend!
The home is a duplex with an enclosed garden off the living room and a well-appointed kitchen where 6 can share a meal. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and well-designed. The living room and 3 bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished and decorated. Most of all, the home has an instantly comfortable feel. The host is very gracious and thoughtful.
The home is located on a short quiet residential street a convenient and short walk from St. Pancras Station and King's Cross Station and a few blocks' walk to Russell Square tube.
There are quite good restaurants nearby and good pubs.
The place is a gem.
The flat is in Bloomsbury, within walking distance of the British Museum, galleries and exhibition centers. The area was populated by artists and writers, e.g. Hogarth, Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf, and retains many of the buildings of the period. There is now an interesting mix of commercial and residential life with garden squares and parks, restaurants and health food shops. Saddlers Wells, RADA, and other theatres are very nearby.
The flat is excellently located for public transport. It is 5 minutes walk to Kings Cross station (trains to Scotland), St Pancreas (Eurostar) and Euston. The nearest tube stations are King's Cross, Russell Square and Euston. Bus stops are within 3 minutes walk, from where buses take you to all parts of London.
