I decided NOT to go ballistic (unusual) ans in a matter of an hour Timothy Derville and his team found us another flat with a equally good location and better features. No was no up charge and our arrival, stay and departure was most memorable. I was VERY happy I utilized Timothy and his team at Home Away. His father Phillipe even came over on his way home to help me with the TV. Good location near high st. And Chelsea, a great whole foods store. Flat was clean and well appointed . Nice people and very well organized. Thank you again, Timothy !! Mark Shevory

It was our first time celebrating Christmas in London and I would definitely do it again. Lovely experience. The place is very clean, modern and well-maintained. The hosts were great! Craig and Tom provided us with information of many places to visit nearby. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. Thank you so much!
