Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This was a comfortable apartment, stocked with everything a family could need and in a great location. Public transport was accessible and inexpensive. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. Eve was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend the property!

Wonderful home base for our London vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in March with our two teenagers. A wonderful place in a convenient location. Yvonne met us upon arrival to familiarize us with the flat. When we discovered we were short tea towels for the kitchen and soap for the bathrooms, she had them delivered within an hour! It was very easy to access public transportation via the buses and the tube. We bought an Oystercard loaded with a 7-day Travelcard at the Londis store next door. We used both the (more frequently) High Street Kensington and (less frequently) Kensington (Olympia) stations nearby. Buses 9 and C1 were especially useful, with stops less than a 5-minute walk away. We shopped several times at the Whole Foods (near High Street Kensington station) and the Waitrose (a couple bus stops closer) grocery stores. The kitchen was well-equipped for the cooking we did. Having on-site laundry was wonderful as well. Thank you, Yvonne, for such a great place to stay at for spring break in London!

Satisfied all our needs

  • 5 of 5

Yvonne was a perfect host. She met us at the apartment when we arrived (very early on the morning of our first day) and not only stored our luggage until we could get into the apartment, but she drove us to a wonderful cafe for breakfast. Even though the nearest underground was a brisk 15 minute walk, our children laughed about ending a sightseeing day in London with the walk home. Convenient to restaurants and grocery shopping.

Great place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (with teenagers) and had a wonderful stay over Christmas in this lovely apartment. It's easy to get anywhere in London and is walking distance to Kensington High Street and Notting Hill, Holland Park and Kensington Palace. Yvonne was a great host - providing all the supplies we needed. Great place to stay for a family and would highly recommend!

Well located and equipped apartment in London

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with three friends. Yvonne was there to greet us and nothing was too much trouble.

Apartment was clean and very well equipped. We even managed to sit outdoors on the sun terrace for a short while on a sunny winter morning.

We very much liked the location and well served by buses. Tube station short walk away too.

Great cafes ( Phillies in Fillimore Gardens was fab)and we ate in local pub which we enjoyed.

Would highly recommend staying here and we hope to return.

Cozy rental in Kensington

  • 3 of 5

We liked the unit, but probably would not rent again as the nearest usable Underground was at least 20 minutes away, and the real issue was the terrible noise from the water tank any time water was used.

Owner's Response: I am sorry about the water pump noise. It is possible to eliminate this by means of a switch, which should have been explained to you on arrival. It is there to give you extra water pressure whilst showering, it is not a constant noise and only audible when using the bathroom. There are actually 2 underground stations, one is Olympia which is a 5 minute walk and the other is Kensington High St. which is 10 mins. The bus stop is 2mins away. I will be sure to tell future guests the sometimes quirky features of the property. Never had a complaint before about this.

In the heart of Kensington. Local shops on your doorstep including Supermarket (which bakes its own fresh bread and croissants every morning), Dry cleaners and Pub! Kensington High Street is 500 yards away where you will find many large clothes stores and a wide range of shops, including the largest organic food store in London. Bus stop just yards away, which can take you to Oxford St. or Knightsbridge (for Harrods) . High St Kensington tube station (circle line) is just a pleasant 10 minute stroll down the High St. The museums and galleries of South Kensington are just a short bus ride away. Holland Park with its open-air cafes, adventure playground and wildlife is just 5 minutes walk away, perfect for the children - also a summer open-air opera season - take a picnic. The apartment and location gives you everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The large terrace with sun loungers and bar-b-que, to add to your enjoyment whilst vacationing in London.
