Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We loved this apartment. It was bright and sunny, spacious and immaculate...we loved the little balcony, but wished the weather had been a little warmer so we could enjoy it more. I'm sure it would be fabulous in the summer! The location between South Kensington and Chelsea was wonderful as well as the proximity to the tube station. Your staff in London was friendly, helpful and provided great service. We are looking forward to our next trip to London!

London Perfect. Absolutely perfect week at the Cavendish flat!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with London Perfect was absolutely perfect! From the very first email, we were impressed with their communication, professionalism, and desire to ensure that our pre, during, and post experience was ideal. We would email the office and get a swift response each time. We had an exceptionally positive experience with them and would highly recommend them to others looking for quality accommodations in lovely neighborhoods. My family of four, with two children ages 14 and 11, spent a week in South Kensington at the Cavendish apartment. This neighborhood was ideal for us; we could walk in any direction to dozens of great shops, restaurants, and cafes. The Cavendish is less than a five-minute, flat walk to the South Kensington underground station. We always felt safe in this upscale, less-frenetic neighborhood. We gave a $100 deposit for the key to the private garden across the street; it was a very pretty park to stroll through and relax. The Cavendish is on the top floor of its building. You could either climb the stairs or take the tiny elevator. Upon entering the apartment, you're immediately greeted by a bright, charming, and inviting space. The living room is comfortable and cozy. London Perfect graciously allowed us to check in around 7:30 a.m.; we were fortunate there were no guests the night before we arrived. We used the recommended car service and were picked up at Heathrow. The friendly driver took us up to the apartment, where we were later met by Sax from London Perfect. Sax went through how to operate the appliances, unlock all the windows, etc. It was warm our first day and I thought it would be an uncomfortable week without air conditioning, but the fans and opened windows cooled it down nicely. Once the weather cooled down, the beautiful cross breeze kept the apartment at a perfect temperature. We loved relaxing on the little balcony at night, where, if you leaned just the right way, you could see what we think was the London Eye. We were happy to have a washer/dryer, and we appreciated the items provided by London Perfect to get us started. Please read my full review on Google. VRBO doesn't allow me enough characters to share just what a great experience we had!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank the London Perfect team for ensuring that every detail regarding our stay was addressed. You are a very professional team. The Cavendish apartment is bright and cheerful and was a perfect place to relax after a day touring London. The Cavendish is fully appointed and located within a very beautiful and well maintained (and clean) building. The neighborhood is also quite beautiful and located very close to the Tube Station. The London Tube system is an example of a near perfect transportation system. We were quite fortunate to have had great weather as well. We had a great time in London thanks in part to the London Perfect team. Lushi's limo service was also seamless (arrival and departure. Thanks again.

London Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely week's stay at the Cavendish for 2014 Thanksgiving Holiday. There were four of us there and plenty of space for everyone. The flat is located in a lovely part of South Kensington with several great views over the rooftops of London. Local grocery (Tesco) was crowded but convenient. Lots of local restaurants filled with both locals and tourist. A special THANK YOU to the London Perfect staff who had to make a special trip to the flat to help get the room safe open(totally our fault). We loved having this special place to come back to at the end of the day.”

Very comfortable and well located apartment in a great area. Close to the South Kensington tube station and lots of restaurants and stores - walk to Harrods department store.The bedrooms are very comfortable and both baths were nicely outfitted. The washer and dryer are a big plus. I would definitely stay here again. The information from LondonPerfect was very good. Their recommended driver picked us up at Heathrow and delivered us to the apartment with no problems.

Beautiful Apartment - South Kensington

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and spacious apartment with a homely feel and stunning London view. Breakfast on the balcony adds to your London experience. Very comfortable for four people. It is is a well appointed, conveniently located, spacious and inviting flat located close to the tube and bus stop with a number of restaurants and pubs, specialty shops, grocery stores, and a post office nearby. The staff at London Perfect welcomes you, are available to answer questions, and help with your luggage upon departure. They recommended a driver who was prompt and charged below market rates. The apt. was more than just stocked with "starter" supplies, with everything we needed available. This property, and the staff at London Perfect truly made our trip to London "perfect" and we look forward to staying at another one of their many properties on our next trip!

Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are packing with great sadness to leave this magnificent city of London! Our stay has been glorious in all aspects and a large part of that was the apartment. The perfect location, the perfect amenities and charm in the design and conveniences. And your wonderful attention to our every request. We have told many, many friends about this spot and do intend to return ourselves. We have many sensational memories! Thank you
