About Zoe Huang

As an interior designer, I am driven to make my home beautiful and comfortable. I love traveling and love to discover new ideas and get inspirations and experience other culture.

After living in 5 different countries for 12 years, I was so tired of moving around. I decided to settle in London, in 2010 I bought this apartment which was in very bad condition, I filled up with my beloved furniture, beautiful decoration collected around the world. Then after only 3 months living in this loving home,I meet the man of my life, he was very impressed with my beautiful and cozy home, but at the end insist that I moved to his house in the countryside to start our new family together.

Truly hope you find your comfort and love in this beautiful home.

Zoe Huang purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Zoe Huang chose Kensington and Chelsea

Centre located in a quiet residential and historic street, with great characters Victoria Apartment, excellent decoration plus super comfortable beds, and spacious bright and brand new kitchen and open living, new and very clean bathrooms.

What makes this townhome unique

A lot space for centre London, and having your own way of living at a wonderful apartment without paying huge hotel bills.

I do find quite annoying that I need to buy all the things that I only need small amount, such as salt, peppers, sugar, washing power/liquid, dishwasher tablets, etc when I stayed at holiday rental homes, hence here I stock all this necessary and basic items for the easy and comfortable stay.

A holiday is we pay for a happy time, comfortable beds with quality beds linens, and the powerful hair dryer for ladies make everything so different. I do my best to make you feel it is worth the experience and worth the money you pay for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My entire family enjoyed the stay at the apartment thoroughly. The apartment is well equipped with all the necessary items including a wii console + games. The location is excellent with a 24/7 Tesco, West Kensington Tube station and several restaurants within 10min walking distance. The neighbourhood, though quiet, comprises of several friendly families. The host, Zoe Huang, is un-doubtly one of the friendliest host I have came across and she is constantly in touch and ensuring that things are going well for me and my family throughout our stay. Highly recommended!

Great Stay in London

  • 5 out of 5
I am sorry to be writing this review so late. The year has gotten away from me! We had a great time staying in this flat. It was our first stop on our European vacation and it was a great place to spread out in while dealing with jet lag. We texted Zoe when we got on the tube at Heathrow and she was at the flat when got there. We loved how close it is to a great tube line that is convenient for many popular attractions. We also enjoyed how convenient the grocery store was for picking up food on our way home from sightseeing. The flat is comfortable, pleasant and clean. Zoe was very good to us. I would definitely stay in this flat again.

We stayed at Zoe's apartment as a group of 6 from New York City and it was lovely. We probably looked at 20 different options and so glad we chose this apartment.

A very charming street, super clean, cute furnishings and decor. Zoe was incredibly nice and let us into the apartment early with no extra charge (which was really a nice treat after getting in from a redeye). She was really friendly and responded to questions immediately. Very easy to deal with.

A grocery store and some cute cafes were a short walk away. The only downside is the bedrooms weren't perfect for 3 couples (one of the bedrooms is just a twin size bed, but one of the bedrooms has an additional futon), but the cost was really great and MUCH cheaper than the hotels in london.

A plus - fantastic high end sheets!

Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful apartment for a prefect Long weekend!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is beautiful! It had all the things we could need for a long weekend, and the beds were comfortable and the rooms well decorated. We met Zoe on the day we arrived and she was very welcoming and friendly. The apartment is walking distance to the tube station making it ideal for shooting into the centre. Really handy having a Sainsburys just down the road too.

It was a perfect stay!

New home in London, comfortable & excellent deco

New home in London, comfortable & excellent deco
  • 5 out of 5
I've just found my new London "home" Zoe's apartment was just as described and was the perfect base for our stay in London.

I've stayed in other airbnb places but to date this knocks the rest into a cocked hat - for those of you reviewing from abroad that means it's fantastic!

Luckily I'm free to book my own accommodation which means I can stay in a wide variety of places but here I felt at home and found myself picturing that this was my own place in London.

Zoe obviously has an eye for detail and every room is beautifully laid out with unique pieces of furniture and décor.

This apartment is perfectly placed for a stay in London; if you're working at Olympia it's a two minute walk, at Earls Court it's a 10 min commute and if your on holiday you're only a short tube ride from the main locations.

All amenities are available and I'll bring my tiger woods gold game next time to use on the Nintendo Wii; Sainsburys is just around the corner but unfortunately I can't comment on the local eateries as I preferred to stay in!

The Hand & Flower pub is up by Olympia tube - worth stopping en route either on the way back or in the morning as the do a good breakfast.

If you stop here and are disappointed I'll eat my hat and post the video on YouTube!

Family's great holiday home

Family's great holiday home
  • 5 out of 5
Great location- near Knights bridge, Hyde park, v&a museums etc. there are two tube stations nearby and bus is very convenient - took us to the White city shopping centre within 20 mins.

Delicate interior design- makes the flat a warm and sweet home

Flexible checking in/out time- thanks for manager Zoe's kind arrangement

Reliable cleaning service - cleaner Marsha is a really nice person, being very helpful

Very much like the second double bedroom with a study desk. Tidy, neat and cozy.

The living room has a big coach - enough for an extra person to sleep on.
