Guestbook comments from the manager

We were absolutely delighted with our stay, thanks to the efficiency of the team at Ivy Lettings. We had booked another place, with a different company, a few weeks before we were to travel. Four days before departure we were advised the flat was not yet ready for occupancy! Left in the lurch, we were rescued by Ivy Lettings who set us up in a wonderful house a short walk from the Baker Street tube station. They were incredibly helpful and professional (and prompt) throughout and went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome in London, We would definitely recommend them to anyone travelinig to London.

I could not have been more pleased.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very nice. Some of the little things when you travel and use VBRO stand out. I've always brought my own shampoo and soap. It's not a hotel and you need to be prepared. They had all of that in every bathroom. I didn't use it but it was a great gesture. Additionally, the location was perfect for us. I've stayed in many other locations but not next to Regent's Park. It's really close to the London Zoo, right around the corner is a fabulous pub (I didn't go to it but the crowd was always vibrant). The Sherlock Holmes museum was, again, right around the corner. We didn't attend that either but probably should have. Nicely furnished, beautiful patios. Was great!! Now, things to consider if you haven't traveled to this area of London. There is no AC. I personally don't care about that. Fans were all around the house. Also, apartments in London are usually several floors. If you have a special needs child or an elderly guest you need to take that into consideration. Otherwise...that was great exercise for me. I took my triplets, age 12 and my oldest daughter and her friend. More room than needed for sure! Close markets also, so we stocked up the important items. As of writing this, there is construction out front. We needed to instruct Uber to collect us at the Sherlock Holmes museum. That worked out really well because all the drivers knew where to go. I learned how to use a coffee press, probably should have known how to do that but didn't. The washer and dryer is a combination appliance. It will take more time to wash clothes if you are accustom to the appliances in the US. You are down wind from that great sitting on the patio is going to make you hungry :) All and all, you can't go wrong with this place. Nice decor, great history and location, wonderful owners!!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during a Spring Vacation for 5 days with 4 teenagers. The location was perfect - local stores and restaurants for easy dinners and grocery shopping. The area was busy and safe. The Baker Street tube station is less than two blocks away and has a tourist bus stop right out front. This made getting around London very convenient. The rental was clean and contained everything we needed. You do need to be prepared for the large number of steps but the kids had no issues with these. The house has essentially four bedrooms with a mini-apt on the top floor. This made it easy for everyone to have their own space and the multiple bathrooms cut down on arguments and saved time getting ready. I would highly recommend the space and would love to stay there again!

What fun! Great place great location

  • 4 of 5

We have a large family and so the multiple bedrooms/bathrooms and good sized kitchen/dining/living rooms were ideal for us all getting together. The apartment is well-appointed, with great amenities, and incredible location near the tube. Only 2 minor issues we had were that the internet went out for a long period of time during our last day (but no trouble as we should be enjoying the city and was only for 24 hours) and that there are a lots of stairs to climb. I would definitely stay in this location again given its size and location. Thanks!

Beautiful and centrally located home

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideal for our stay. Four adults, two teenage girls and a 7 year old had plenty of space in this well-appointed, comfortable home across from Regents Park and a short walk to the Baker street tube. The house is charming and well-decorated (someone is an artist!). There are many stairs so this is not a place for someone who is handicapped nor is it ideal for those with very small children. There are really 5 floors so it's a haul to the top where my daughter and her cousin shared a cool "mini studio" with its own kitchen and lounge area! Thanks to the owner and Ivy Lettings for providing a home that exceeded our expectations. Loved the proximity to everything- walking and underground. Perfect for a London stay where you need to sleep 6 or more comfortably.
