A little Gem in a Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. Though the kitchen is small we found it adequate. The closet in the bedroom is huge which is unusual but a real bonus as many rental places have poor storage. The Living Room is a decent size with a Dining Table capable of seating 4.

The bedroom faces on to a very quiet street at the rear of the property and is very quiet both during the day as well as at night.

We had a small problem with the DVD player but Fay and her husband fixed it straight away. They were a delight to deal with and made us feel most welcome. We hope they will have availability when next we come as its hard to find somewhere which 'ticks' all our boxes!

My wife and I love the Chelsea area and this property is perfectly located to enjoy the best Chelsea has to offer.

Within 5 minutes walk are 4 Cafe Bakeries in the Kings Road, all of which are excellent. There are 2 Cinemas just a little further away and recently opened, the Ivy Chelsea Garden Restaurant which is now one of our favorites.The Food is very good there and it has a terrific 'buzz'. We couldn't get in the first time we wanted to (Its always very busy) but learnt later that this was the night George Clooney and Robert deNiro were there!

There are loads of buses to get you where you want and both Sloane Sq and South Kensington Tube Stations walkable.

Warm, and cosy flat

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here in late April for a week. The flat is in Chelsea, just off King's Road. It has everything you need for being your home while in London. Clean, safe and quiet. Faye and Kat were terrific and went above and beyond to provide info on the area for a wonderful visit. We ended up taking buses everywhere because it allowed us to see more of the city and get our bearings faster. I would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to London.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home after spending the Christmas holidays in London. We are a family of 3 (2 adults/1 teen) & the space was perfect for us. Clean, comfortable & affordable. The Chelsea area had restaurants & shopping in walking distance. Easy access to buses & the Underground. Enjoyed the best gelato at Amorino on Kings Road. Hope to go back again someday when the weather is warmer. Highly recommend the property. Thank you Fay & Kat.

Wonderful stay in Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Chelsea flat. The property is in a great location; within walking distance of shops, transportation, parks, and museums. The bedroom is quiet and the flat gets plenty of light. Fay and Kathlira were really great to deal with throughout our entire stay. Fay was very responsive to emails. The pullout sofa worked out very well for our daughter and there was plenty of storage space for our clothes.. Overall, we had a fantastic stay in this property and would definitely stay there again in the future.

Brilliant location,good value apartment

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as described and depicted for the apartment. It is located in a very good area with transport links very close.

Although an older style apartment it was clean and well equipped. The bedroom was on the small side, but the bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of storage.

The lounge room was spacious and the wi-fi connection was very good.

The manager, Fay Williams, was easy to deal with and together with her daughter-in-law Kat was there to meet us when we arrived.

I would have no hesitation recommending this property to others.

We also had lunch at Medlar Restaurant further down King's Road (at 438) and would recommend it.

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in this flat while we explored London and surroundings. Overall, the flat was perfectly lovely - it was clean and bright, had all the amenities we needed, and was very conveniently located. The pictures do a pretty good job of reflecting what there is. There are only a couple of things that one should be aware of. Firstly, the bedroom is small and really only has room for the bed and a small dresser - don't expect to put anything extra like a crib in here. (However, the living/dining room is a good size and does have an extra pull-out bed.) Secondly the flat can only be reached by going up a couple of flights of fairly steep stairs so people with mobility issues might want to take this into account.

The biggest benefit of this flat however, is its location. It is about a block off Kings Road where we found lots of small cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops. A couple of grocery stores are close by. The neighborhood itself is lovely and very walkable. Its also about midway between two tube stations - South Kensington and Sloane Square. Either can be reached in a 15-20 minute walk from the flat. Because South Kensington is on the Piccadilly line, we found that getting to the flat from Heathrow via the tube was very easy. Basically, we had absolutely no trouble getting around London from where this flat is located. Lastly, thank you to Fay who handled all our questions quickly and efficiently. It was a great experience.

Within a stone's thrown can be found bars and restaurants galore, prestige shopping (Harrods, etc.), history (Buckingham Palace, House of Parliament, Museums and Art Galleries galore, Tower of London, London Eye ect ect). The King's Road became famous as the 'in' place in the 60s with many pop starts and other celebrities making it their home, and to this day retains its special character. Every which way are to be found historic buildings, museums and art galleries.

Chelsea has its own Theatre (the Royal Court Theatre) and live music venue (Cadogan Hall, both at Sloane Square, let alone the score-plus theatres in the West End. Just a 10 minute underground journey brings you to Leicester Square and the West End. The apartment is the ideal location for both tourists and business people alike. There are supermarkets, banks, boutiques, bars and restaurants galore along the Kings Road. On Saturdays there is a delightful farmers' market in Duke of York Square. Further out are wonderful outings to Kew Gardens, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, Royal Greenwich etc.

The West End of London, Soho and Bloomsbury boast 30 plus theatres so you could watch a new show every night for a month and still have some left over!

Access to all places is easy with the very comprehensive and regular London Transport bus and subway system - even better, walk!

South East England is jam-packed full of history and culture. There are national heritage sites such as Windsor Castle and Hampton Court. There is the Thames with a wide variety of journeys along its meandering course; within an hour's journey is Oxford, Stratford upon Avon (Shakespeare and all that), Brighton it’s flamboyant Pavilion, to name a few. Although we don't have a Mediterranean climate, the weather is generally mild.
