Awesome experience in London !

5 of 5
My family and I stayed for 10 days in London at flat located in Earls Court. The location is just perfect as it is 3 minutes away from the tube, bus stop and TESCO. The flat was as described in the listing, very clean and comfy with everything that we needed. It is a quiet section of town but there are plenty of restaurants and places to see right around the corner. When we arrived , 4 hours late as our plane was delayed, Peter the owner , was there to greet us. He was exceptional and answered all our questions. A quick tour of the flat and he had a book that described everything in the flat and all listed restaurants and other places to go. Thank you Peter and we will certainly stay in the same place when we visit London again.

A charming flat in the most convenient part of South Kensington.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Hereford Square. SO CONVENIENT to Gloucester Road tube station, the buses, the museums on Cromwell Road. The 49 bus will take you to South Kensington Station or on down to Kings Road in Chelsea. From there the 11 bus will take you to Victoria Station, Westminster, and St. Paul's Cathedral. So many nice restaurants close by: try Cafe Forum for breakfast and coffee; Wildwood is a chain but quite good; the Star of India on Old Brompton Road is upscale Indian and very good; Bumpkins just a couple of blocks away is great for Sunday roast. The flat has everything you need, just move in and make yourself at home. Everything works, everything is modern. Even though it's a basement flat, the front room--sitting room, kitchen--is full of light from the window. The bedroom is quiet and roomy, plenty of storage and closet space. The bed is big and comfortable. Jeannie is a most gracious, kind, helpful host. We just fell in love with her, really. We will stay there again if at all possible.
