About Ray Ackrim

I am from Hong Kong. I settled in London in 1999. I bought this apartment with my husband in 2001.

I used to work as an accountant and now am a full time mother.

I have two lovely boys (7 and 10). They are a handful.

I love London. I grew up in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a great city, but it does not have the sense of space and the variety of night-life you get in London.

We bought the flat for quite a few reasons;

1. The area is great, its very central, it's so close to many great sites in London. Hyde Park is only 5 minutes walk away.

Hyde Park is an enormous park, its got a a lovely lake called the Serpentine.

2. Food. We love Chinese food. Queensway, in Bayswater has got some amazing restaurants in it. It also has a huge range of other types of foods there (Greek, Thai, Lebanese).

3. Transport. Its so easy to get around London. The underground is just 5 minutes away. London Heathrow is only 15 minutes away by train, to Paddington railway.

4. Shopping. The great shops on Oxford street (the West End), Marble Arch

5. Finally, the flat is lovely. It's really big and bright. It's very spacious and it has a small patio garden.

We lived there for many happy years.

We had our two children there.

We now live about 5 minutes drive away.

Ray Ackrim purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Ray Ackrim chose Bayswater

I bought this property as I had always dreamed of living in central London.

Bayswater is as central as you want. It has a great vibe and is located in urban Bo Ho chic of Portobello and the wide open spaces of Hyde Park.

What makes this apartment unique

Great Central location, very close to Hyde Park

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ray

Sorry it has taken me the last few days to catch up on emails.

We had a wonderful stay at your place Paddington is a fabulous area so easy to get around and the architecture as well as being able to walk to Kensington gardens was great

Having the little courtyard to sit in was a bonus.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your place for staying in London

Regards

John

Excellent location and great accommodations

  • 5 out of 5
The flat's proximity to Paddington station gave us the freedom to travel around the city as well as beyond. Not only did we use the metro system, but we also traveled by train out to Windsor Castle and Oxford. At Paddington, we also visited the grocery store to purchase food and supplies for the week. In addition, the area had plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. I also loved the fact that Hyde Park was just a few blocks away. Since I'm a runner and in training, it was so easy to walk to the park and go for a run on several occasions.
The flat itself was clean and spacious. Everything worked well including the Wi-Fi. There were five of us, and we had more than enough room to sleep comfortably. When we couldn't figure out how to use the oven, I emailed Ray. Not only did he respond immediately, but he helped me figure out the problem. Ray also recommended we use a car service for our travel to and from the airport. It worked out well since we had several large suitcases.
We spent 7 days in London, and loved everything about the city as well as the flat. If we ever travel to London again, we will definitely want to stay at this flat.

Flat was very clean; close proximity to Paddington Station and the Hop On / Hop Off buses. Nice hot shower after a long day of touring London. Bed were made ahead of time! Great Wi-Fi. We had 5 adults and it exceeded our expectations.
Thanks.

Fantastic central London location! Enjoyed stay!

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment was VERY comfortable for four adults, plenty of room to store gear and spread out. We appreciated the washer, and the full kitchen. Couldn't figure out how to make the oven work, a manual would have been helpful. The location was perfect - Paddington station let us get all over town without relying on taxicabs. Nearby market was walkable and convenient as well to keep the fridge stocked. The one thing that could use some improvement is the musty air - wouldn't recommend flat to anyone with sensitivity to that.

Owner's Response: Hi thanks for the honest review.
In terms of the musty air comment.
I had left 2 air coolers, in the property. I don't know if you were using them.
I would also add that the weather in London has been exceptionally warm recently.
I believe that the musty air could have been caused by that.
If you had mentioned to me then I would have popped by to help.
Anyway I am glad you enjoyed your vacation.
