A wonderful way to experience London!
Review Submitted: 07 November 2011

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time. After a long flight, we were both delighted to see how clean and inviting the apartment was. The apartment was just as the listing had described and had been cleaned thoroughly as guests had just left earlier in the day. With the owners living upstairs, any time we had a question or concern it was taken care of immediately and they were lovely folks. Not only was the apartment wonderful, but the area was just about the perfect location for staying in London. Right off the Kensington High Street and a two minute walk from a quiet tube stop, you can experience the busiest parts of London while escaping to the quieter area just the same.
If you stay here, I recommend walking around the corner to the Crown and Scepter for a pint and a great dinner. The chef is only in for a few hours a night and has created a terrific menu. It was a hidden, quiet pub that felt like home with a wonderful staff. And when you need a break from sight-seeing, take the overground train (same tube stop just down the block) one stop up and you're in Shephard's Bush, a less touristy area with wonderful shops, a great Waitrose for groceries, good restaurants and you'll even save a few pounds on most things as the "tourist mark up" is gone.
The only warning I have is if you're tall, be ready to feel a little cramped in the shower. But I'm 6'7" and wife who's tall didn't have any problem. There were no problems at all with the apartment and we knew if there was, Daniel and his wife would be more than helpful. I cannot stress how wonderful our stay was.
If you have the chance, this is a great choice for a lovely London stay. My wife and I will absolutely be contacting Daniel the second we decide to take another trip to London.
