Overview

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

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment in London Centre- Sleeps 6

Large Beautiful Two Double Bedroom Apartment in charming South Kensington, London. Located in a grand Georgian House on one of the most sought after streets in London, very quiet and safe. The beautifully maintained building is located in by far one of the most prestigious districts in London.

The west facing living space gives the large living room a very light and airy feel. The recently renovated apartment has a wonderful reception room with high ceilings and antique dark wood furniture. The kitchen with an Italian granite floor includes all the necessary integrated appliances (new dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave/oven, hob, washing machine (including dryer), as well as a toaster, kettle, cutlery, plates, pots/pans, etc). It has a superb master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with a queen sized double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, ideal for families. Both bedrooms have large floor to ceiling fitted closets with lots of hanging space and shelves. The apartment also has a beautiful large marble bathroom with designer Lefroy Brooks bathroom fittings and beautifully scented Baylis & Harding England bathroom toiletries for your stay. The living room has two beautiful sofas and the dining area has a new designer glass dinning table with seating for 6. The apartment has all mod cons, including a 32'’ flatscreen TV, Iphone/Ipod speakers, and high-speed wireless internet. There is a landline for local calls so you don't need to spend a fortune calling from an international cell/mobile. A fireplace gives the living area a very atmospheric feel. A romantic apartment for couples but also ideal for families.

The apartment is beautifully furnished with large handcrafted antique mirrors, large pillar candles and Fleur de lie period-style designer curtains.

The apartment also has recessed low voltage spot lighting with touch sensitive dimmable controls.

Cranley Gardens is located just a short walk away from the many restaurants, boutiques and bars in South Kensington, attractions such as the V&A, the Natural History Museum, etc and within easy reach at 10mins walk to the green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace.

The apartment is very close to transport links: 5 min walk to the nearest tube/underground and 2 min to the closest bus stop with direct lines to other major attractions.

Fantastic location and flat

  • 5 out of 5
My family of 4, including 2 children, recently stayed at this wonderful apartment in the posh South Kensington area of London. We loved the flat and the neighborhood. The owners were a joy to deal with, especially given a flight issue that resulted in us arriving much later than expected. The apartment description was spot on. Given the location of the flat we were able to open the windows and catch the night breezes which made for terrific sleeping.

The neighborhood was convenient to multiple tube stops and had a variety of food choices and groceries just down the street. We love to walk and regularly walked from the flat to Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, etc.

A great experience overall.

Comfortable flat, convenient location

  • 5 out of 5
The flat was very conveniently located for both the Gloucester Road and South Kensington Tube stops. On arrival we found the flat to be very clean and comfortable with thoughtful touches like welcoming chocolates and the use of toiletries for our stay. The owner was extremely helpful and responded promptly to our queries. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. As a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children) we all managed to fit in without feeling too cramped - although we were out for the majority of every day seeing all the local sights. We would happily recommend this flat to any friends travelling to London.

Comfortable Kensington

  • 5 out of 5
As VRBO owners ourselves, we know what it takes to create a comfortable, home like environment, and Saphira & Tom has achieved that. We have a two week stay, and felt completely at ease. The unit is quiet, with lots of natural light. All of the appliances were in as described, and the gas fireplace is wonderful too. Beds were comfortable as well. The location is ideal with the flat centered between the Gloucester Rd and Kensington South tube stops. We did not take the bus, so we cannot comment on that. Lots of dining and grocery options close by. We would certainly recommend this to anyone asking about it. Not a problem for us, but for others that may have some physical limitations, there are a number of stairs that need to be climbed to get to the flat, so be aware of that.

Thank you for making our two weeks here perfect.

Tom & Debra

Lovely and highly recommended

  • 4 out of 5
We (3 adults) stayed at this nice and very comfortable apartment for 5 nights. It turned out to be a very good choice of accommodation. The apartment itself is quite spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable. The neighborhood is very peaceful, but near supermarkets (some of them are open 24/7), restaurants, pubs, cafe's etc. The tube has two stations nearby with connection to Heathrow (piccadilly line) and the circle and district lines.
The owners, whom we did not actually meet, were very helpful with very good information about the apartment and anything else one may need, and were also available for further assistance when needed.
The only reasons I did not rate it 5 stars are the stairs (it is a bit high, although we were informed about it and this was not a surprise), and the sofa in the living/dining room that was not very convenient;
However, these two small things do not change the final conclusion: This is a great place. We highly recommend it, and intend to come back on our next visit to London.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. We have now replaced our L shaped sofa with 2 new sofas, which I hope you would find more comfortable as they are of standard height. We hope to welcome you back on your next trip to London!

Perfect apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys age 10,14) recently spent 6 nights at this apartment. I did lots of research on locations, price, suitability, convenience, etc and this apartment fit the bill on all fronts. Tom and Saphira responded quickly and thoroughly from the initial contact, the price was fair, the check in and check out routine were clear and seemless. The apartment was clean, and not full of clutter/wall hangings so I didn't have to worry about my sons damaging anything. Great location, walk to everything, great restaurants. Two notes, not problems: It is a few flights up, stairs only; there wasn't a table where we could all fit to eat together. I have already recommended this apartment; great for families.

Located in one of the most beautiful areas of London- in the heart of the city. The apartment is close to the most popular attractions including the V&A Museum, Science Museum and Natural History Museum only a short walk away (10 minutes). London's most famous department store Harrods is only a 5 minute drive away. In this area you are spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants and shops with the renowned King's Road less than a 10 min walk away. Even Kensington Palace is a leisurely 15 min walk away!
