Loved this flat!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful spot and we are so grateful to have found it. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the property manager could not have been nicer! While there were more stairs than we'd realized (to get up to the flat and then up to the bedrooms), this was not a problem for our family and we loved that the back patio was raised up a floor and private. I enjoyed my coffee there each morning before a packed day in London, and it was a real treat to spend a week in this lovely part of Kensington. We LOVED getting to know Holland Park and the beautiful streets around it, and once we got the bus routes down we found this location to be absolutely ideal! We hope to return in the near future!

exactly as advertised. Great family property

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, we were a family of four and were very comfortable. Great outdoor space. Walking distance to Holland Park which was beautiful. Pub at the corner was excellent. Convenience store a lifesaver. Flat was exactly as advertised. Wonderful trip!

great location and overall good deal

  • 4 of 5

Kensington is a great location near Holland Park, shopping on Kensington High Street and Kensington Palace and Gardens. The apartment was quiet at night (no noise from neighbors and minimal street noise). The apartment was clean (for most part), inviting and provided enough room to spread out. It also has the deck/outdoor area which is a definite plus. The only downside was some deferred maintenance in the bathrooms. One bathroom has the wooden window sill butting into the shower. It is rotted out on the end with black mold growing on it. Black mold on the ceiling of the other shower. Clean up the black (and some pink) mold that looks a wee bit unhealthy to be around and this place is the cats meow . With the mold, you're like "eh good deal overall but, darn, I wish I wasn't hanging out in a place with mold".

Owner's Response: I am so sorry. This should never have been - I just wish you had pointed this out at the time and I would have immediately attended to the problems. The mould is being fixed now as i write and a new sill is on its way! Back to the Cats Miow! I am so happy you loved the location and other aspects of the flat and hope one day you will return .

Three of us shared. Beds were comfortable and two very nice bathrooms. Kitchen super well stocked and the outdoor deck was perfect with sunny weather we had. Nice hang out living room too. We could not have been luckier, thanks so much Yvonne! Deborah, Barbara and Terry

Great location and owner

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place. The location can't be beat. It is walking distance from Kensington Palace and close to several amazing museums. The apartment itself is quite charming and comes with cable TV and WiFi. We used both in the evenings. It's also located literally next door to a nice little market where we purchased a lot of food, wine, etc. If you plan on eating a lot there (we didn't), it has a 4 burner stove and an outdoor barbeque. Please note that there are 2 bathrooms in the place so 2 couples can stay without fighting for shower time in the morning.
