Our luxury apartment is RIGHT IN THE VERY CENTRE of London yet is situated in a quiet, pretty street of lovely Georgian houses, so you have a peaceful residential location with a lovely historic atmosphere yet you are just a short walk to the supermarkets, restaurants, and the city centre.
This apartment is extremely popular because of its location, quality and very low price. However we limit our guests to small groups (three people or fewer). Also, there is a minimum one-week stay in May/June and a minimum one-month stay at all other times of the year. I'm afraid there are no exceptions to this, sorry.
The flat has TWO PROPER BEDROOMS, comfortable KING-SIZE and QUEEN-SIZE beds, (or we can arrange the Queen bed as TWO SINGLE beds), a separate SITTING ROOM with DINING AREA, separate HUGE KITCHEN with everything you could want for self-catering, and a spectacular LARGE ROOF TERRACE. No small studio rooms or hard sofa beds here !!! It is very well equipped, has an excellent heating/aircon system, and includes FREE WIFI which is superfast and very reliable. The mattresses, comforters, pillows, linen and towels are all high quality because we believe in making sure you have the most comfortable stay possible. We can also provide non-allergenic pillows if you wish.

I run this apartment with the help of my husband and I think we make a very good team. We are both professional people, who ran our own companies before, but now we are semi retired.
We were both born in England, and now live close to London, so we're on hand for any queries and help guests may have or need.
My husband has an expert knowledge of English history, and has specialised in the history and sights of London, so he's full of ideas for places to go and things to do. He's also really good for tips on things like how to beat the queues!
I'm the organiser, the one who makes sure the flat is perfect for guests and that they are always met on time. I've always been a very good organiser (even though I say it myself) and our guests have always been really complimentary about the flat...which always gives me a glow.
At first we lived there ourselves, because we ran our separate companies in Marylebone. Then we both semi-retired from our companies, so now we rent the flat to long-term guests.
We always loved the flat. It's laid out like a small house, with the living rooms and kitchen downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs. Then there's the roof terrace which is really stunning.
It's also very cosy, with a ducted air system which puts warm air in all the rooms in winter and cool air everywhere in summer, Having lived there I can vouch for its efficiency.

The apartment is tucked away in a beautiful 200-year-old residential street in upmarket Marylebone village. It’s a quiet, friendly and very safe area. This is the perfect combination of a pretty location, with history all around you, which is truly in the heart of central London.
There are food shops and supermarkets within a few minutes of the apartment, and numerous restaurants and cafe's to choose from. It's also just around the corner from Madame Tussauds and the Sherlock Holmes museum (at 221b Baker Street of course!).
Marylebone is a very special residential district which has an atmosphere all of its own. The reason is the beautiful Georgian architecture, 200+ years old, which makes the streets very attractive...and so very upmarket. Yet this lovely district is also within walking distance of most of the main tourist sites (see below) And if you're not a keen walker then there are two tube stations - Marylebone tube is just 3 minutes' walk away and Baker Street tube (a main 'hub' station) is just 4 minutes' walk. You can reach all the tourist sites easily from either of these tube stations and most are just within two or three stops.
