Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kensington - Kensington apartment

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, air-conditioned, in central London

Our apartment on Iverna Gardens is located on a beautiful, garden square in a residential area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is very quiet, yet only a 2 minutes walk to Kensington High St, with the Tube (Underground), buses, shops, restaurants and cafes.

The apartment has been recently refurbished to an American standard with air-conditioning in every room. It is modern, spacious and light and very well equipped. The kitchen has a washing machine, separate tumble dryer, dishwasher, garbage disposal and all appliances. The master bedroom has an American king size bed (6' X 6'6') with ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has 2 twin (single) beds which can be zipped together to form another king size bed if required, plus a separate bathroom.

Kensington is a district of central London, England within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. An affluent and densely-populated area, its commercial heart is Kensington High Street, and it contains the well-known museum district of South Kensington.

Kensington High Street is one of western London's most popular shopping streets, with upmarket shops serving a wealthy area. It also has Europe's largest roof garden area (1.5 acres (6,100 m2)), consisting of three different gardens with 500 species of plants, fountains, a stream, ducks, flamingos and a restaurant - said to serve the best high tea in Kensington.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so thrilled with this apartment. The location could not be more convenient and the flat is is outfitted better than most villas, houses, flats, condos I've rented. Also I've stayed in many places in London and this is the cleanest and most well-equipped by far. Thanks for sharing it with us! Lois, USA

Perfect! Such a gem of a place! Excellent value!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here in October 2009 for a week - everything about this apartment, our stay and booking was perfect. Genuinely, there was nothing we could fault that we would book again without any hesitation. The owner was a delight to deal with when we booked the apartment - very accommodating and helpful. When we arrived at the apartment, arrangments were made for keys to be given to us by the local property manager and the apartment was immaculately clean. There were clear instructions in the apartment but nothing too formal or prescriptive that you did not automatically feel at home.
The apartment is very well furnished to an excellent standard - the layout & size of the apartment is particularly good for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (not to be taken for granted in London esp in new developments) and the availability of WIFI broadband access is excellent. As for location, this was perfect for us and our young son - so close to High St Ken yet so private overlooking a beautiful and quiet Victorian square and church - all shops are within a few minutes walk - Boots, M&S, Tesco Metro, Wholefoods, Waitrose.and minutes from Kensington Gardens, Princess Diana Memorial Playground & museums so our son had plenty of space to run around! We brought our nanny to London with us and she had never been to London before so the location, local sights and convenience of local amenities was perfect for her! She loved it too. Thank you for making our stay in London so pleasant and welcoming! Cannot recommend this property more highly!

Perfect location and apartment

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is perfect in every way. It is exactly what you see in the photos, only a couple of minutes walk to High Street Kensington where there is some wonderful shops and supermarkets, and a couple of minutes walk to the tube station. It is located in a very quiet area and is in a fully secured building. We received wonderful customer service from the owner, Lynne and it was very easy on check-in day. We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to London and would not hesitate to stay here again. It really is a wonderful apartment.

Home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
What a spacious and welcoming flat to come back to after a full day of London sight-seeing. As our base, it was convenient to so many London attractions being so close to Kensington High Street, but yet tucked away on a quiet square. A quick walk to Marks and Spencer's made it easy to pick up quality, fresh and prepared meals so we could have lots of time to relax. We appreciated having all the comforts of home (very well-equipped and clean) as well as the lovely comfortable beds. We had good, clear communication with the owners and I would highly recommend this flat.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 out of 5
This was a fabulous place. Location is wonderfully central. Apartment is very well equipped and very comfortable. Easy to get around London either by very nearby public transport (Underground & bus) or taxi (many available).
Listings accurate, owners very helpful and knowledgable.
Apartment itself was very clean.
There were so many restaurants and shops within walking distance, this is the perfect place to stay while visiting London and it myriad of attractions.
I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Book it if you can!

Wonderful location, beautiful apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this apartment for four days in late August. The location of the apartment is perfect. It is a five minute walk from the underground through a shopping mall that houses a Marks & Spencer store with a grocery/take-out department, and within easy walking distance to a Tesco's and many other shops and restaurants.

The apartment is well appointed and very nicely laid out to provide privacy. There are two full bathrooms that work well for four people. The balcony overlooks a pretty square that is also available for use by the apartment building tenants. Although quite close to the High Street it was very quiet and the beds were comfortable for sleeping. Lynn and Karen were very pleasant and helpful and everything was as good or better than described. I would recommend this apartment highly and hope to use it again for our next trip to London.

Great London Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We just spent a week at this lovely apartment and had a wonderful time. There are 4 of us (2 small children, 2 adults) and there was plenty of space with nice, but comfortable furnishings. The location is perfect for sightseeing, as it is close to easy transportation or just a great starting point for a long walk through some of the most beautiful parts of London. If you have younger children, this apartment is just 15 minutes walk to the Princess Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Gardens which is a great place to get some energy out. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in the Kensington area, and we hope to stay there again on our next trip to London.

The wonderful sites of London are within easy access as we are so central. Hyde Park and Kensington gardens are a ten-minute walk in one direction. Holland Park is a ten-minute walk in the other direction. We are within a short distance of the Royal Albert Hall, the museums and Harrods. The theatre district is just a short hop away. There are 2 gyms within 5 minutes walk. One of which has a swimming pool and both welcome short term members.

From Heathrow you can take the Heathrow express to Paddington and then tube or taxi - or we would be happy to arrange a taxi pick-up for you with our own driver.
