About Ian French and John Busher

John and I enjoy travelling around the world and as such have been critical of many properties we have stayed in over the years. Hence we run our holiday let as we would expect others to run theirs. When we advertise no hidden extras we mean it. We also try and keep the booking and payment process as simple as possible - again with no hidden additional charges.

Ian French and John Busher purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ian French and John Busher chose Kensington & Chelsea

Our apartment is in a quiet tree lined street in West Kensington and is surprisingly quiet considering its location. It is ideal for visiting all of the London sites which are only 15 minutes away by the underground/metro system.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in a Victorian House built in the 1880's

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ian and John, we had an excellent stay in your apartment. So quiet and yet so convenient . You have thought of everything that one might need during a stay. It was very homely and comfortable and well-maintained!. We will definitely be back when next in London and will recommend the apartment to friends. Thank you to your mother for a lovely welcome.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the flat and were very impressed! It was exactly as listed and central to everything, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Right from the get go Ian and John were great at answering all my questions (I asked a lot and they never complained!) they supplied lots of extra info on pubs, restaurants etc.

We arrived about an hour before we said we would...7am on a Saturday morning and even though we woke them we were greeted and shown our flat.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay in London, would recommend to anyone for it's location, comfort and great landlords, don't hesitate to rent this flat.

Great, Comfortable London Apartment near Hammersmith

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful apartment in July. Ian and John were very friendly and helpful. The apartment is in a great location, in a quiet neighborhood near Hammersmith, and a short walk to the Baron's Court tube station. Ian gave us some great recommendations on where to eat and how to get around town. The apartment was very clean, well-equipped and cozy! We will definitely consider staying here again when we return to London!! Thanks Ian and John!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very well located for arrivals from Heathrow. It was perfect for the short 4 day stay we had in London. It is in a character street which was not noisy or too busy, but as the tube station is close by it was easy to get around. The apartment was very quiet, comfortable and practical. We appreciated the personable approach of the owners and will definitely consider staying again if the chance to visit London comes up again. Gary

A Perfect Spot to See London

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to London was made all the more comfortable by staying at Ian and John's apartment. We were greeted upon arrival with ease, and recommendations for local food and shopping were spot-on for us. We enjoyed ease of access to bus routes and tube stops to explore the city. We took advantage of the quiet getaway to take a break after early mornings out and about -- and then getting back out into the nighttime action was easy. We loved exploring the neighborhood, and excellent local restaurants added to the charm of the community. We had a fantastic visit!

Excellent accommodations for a family

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Ian and John, for a wonderful stay. The apartment was more than roomy for our family and the location could not be beat - close to tube, on the direct line from Heathrow, near major bus stops, and within walking distance of a Tesco grocery store. We couldn't have asked for better! It was great to be in a residential area, given that we were there for 5 days.
