1 bedroom apartment
Lovely 1 bedroom apartment located in the heart of Chelsea. The apartment is light, spacious and very airy and, being on the 2nd Floor (top floor), it is therefore also very private. There is only one other apartment (below mine) in the building. Excellent WiFi connection and landline telephone are provided.
My guests enjoy the best of both worlds here, being so close by the River Thames with The Physic Garden on one side of my home and The Royal Hospital Chelsea on the other. The hustle & bustle of Kings Road for great shops, bars and restaurants are only a few minutes stroll away.
Additionally, there are some wonderful local restaurants and pubs tucked away in the side streets close to my apartment.
London's best museums including The Natural History, The Science and The Victoria & Albert Museums are close by. If guests don't want to walk to them, excellent means of public transport are available.
My closest tube station is Sloane Square and, being in Zone 1 of the London Transport System, the fares are the lowest. Numerous buses are also a few minutes stroll away with one being less than a 2 minute walk away from me.
A Local Tesco store, open 7 days a week between 7 am to 11 pm, is only a minute from the apartment and there are larger supermarkets close by, including Marks & Spencer & Waitrose.
Most importantly, I pride myself on ensuring the highest standard of cleanliness for my guests and always ensure there is coffee, tea, milk etc here on their arrival.
I can also arrange cab meet & greet my guests from any airport via a company I have used for years. As a result, I am able to secure very competitive fares for my guests (almost 50% less than a normal taxi) with the added benefit of the driver carrying luggage into the apartment.

Really a home away from home
When I was researching a place to stay in Chelsea, I saw Eileen’s apartment. A king size bed and shower meant it met my 6’4” (1.96 meter) husband’s requirements. I saw a kitchen with a washer/dryer and dishwasher so I was happy too. I read the reviews and they were all five stars. This sounded too good to be true. I booked the apartment but I thought I bet it will only rate four stars in my review.
I am pleased to say that Eileen’s apartment rates five stars. It was perfect for our stay in London. The location is great. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Sloane Square tube station. There is a Tesco Express nearby for that emergency pint of milk. For a larger shop, a Marks and Spencer is a 10 minute walk away. Their 2 for £10 meal deal (with wine!) is ideal for eating in without the hassle of prepping a meal. If you did want to cook a meal from scratch, however, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need.
The best part of the apartment is the space. After three weeks of being cramped in small bedrooms, it was lovely to spread out. The bedroom has plenty of space to stash the suitcases in the wardrobe and put the clothes in the dresser. The bathroom has a tub and a separate shower cubicle that was large enough to fit the husband. There is enough counter space along with a shelving unit to store the toiletries. It was nice to relax in the sitting room and watch some TV after a long day of sightseeing and tennis.
The only niggle about the apartment is the noise from the traffic. We aren’t used to hearing traffic so it took us a couple of nights to get accustomed to it. For some people that won’t be an issue and It certainly wouldn’t dissuade us from staying here again.
I would highly recommend Eileen’s apartment. It is spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable. Even though Eileen wasn’t able to meet us when we arrived, she phoned to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. I think the best compliment I can make about staying at Eileen’s is it felt like home.
Dear Heather & Perry,
I'm so pleased to have met you before you lef even tho I missed welcoming you on your arrival . I have to admit that the current roadworks in Kings Road means entails a traffic diversion down Royal Hospital Road. That aside, thank you for "finding" my home to stay...I couldn't have had more lovely guests. My home was so clean that it looked as though you hadn't even stayed here. Thank you & hope you can return. Best wishes always. Eileen
Perfect for us!
Eileen’s flat is in a beautiful neighborhood, with easy access to bus and tube stations. There is a small market just a block away and all sorts of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We felt quite at home there, and very welcomed by Eileen, who greeted us upon arrival. We had everything we needed, and put the amenities such as the washing machine and WiFi to good use! Eileen kept in touch before, during, and after our stay to ensure we were well taken care of and were having fun. Thank you Eileen!!
Fantastic property and fantastic host!
We loved the location and our stay at Eileen's beautiful Chelsea property. It was a perfect and quiet location for our family during our London vacation. Easy short walk to subway transportation. A little store on the corner just a few steps away made it easy to eat breakfast first before heading off for our adventures. Taking a short walk to the river in the evening to see the lights on the bridges - should be on everyone's list! Thank you Eileen!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here and Eileen was very helpful with my questions and the arrangements. Chelsea was our destination so the location was perfect, and we were happy to take long walks or take the tube to get to other locations. We were also pleased to find the nearby Royal Hospital and the Physic Garden so nice, and enjoy some nearby restaurants.
Lovely to know that Marilynn & Dan enjoyed their stay here & especially pleased that Marilynn was so successful at the London Art Biennale. Her work is both beautiful & unique. See some for yourself on: marilynngottleib.com
Perfect place for couple. Centrally located, Eileen very helpful. Would come again.
Many thanks Michael for your great review; much appreciated.
Lovely, quiet apartment - home away from home
My two teenagers and I spent a week at this wonderful home. It is located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood close to the Thames. The owner is an absolute delight who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Thank you!
Another wonderful family staying in my home and leaving it so clean to come back to! As a home owner who rents out her home from time to time, I maintain contact with my future guests before their visit. I arrange cabs for those that need them (using a good, reliable company whose fares are really competitive). Also tea, coffee, etc is always here. Rather than simply hand over keys, a welcome introduction to the flat is given to everyone, including details about the local area and readily answer any questions my guests have.
I also have to add that my intuition as to who I should accept as my guests has only let me down once to date.
A lovely one bedroom apartment in the heart of Chelsea close by the River Thames. London's best museums on your doorstep and the bustle of Kings Road with great shops,bars and restaurants is only a stroll away. Transport, both bus and tube also nearby. WiFi and all mod cons in the apartment.
