                                                                                                      We stayed in this wonderful apartment for 26 nights (24/12/16 - 19/01/17). A real home away from home. Great location only a few minutes walk to either Earls Court or Gloucester Rd stations. Walking distance to a big & cheap Sainsbury's Supermarket plus a little M & S Simply Food right next to Earl's Court tube for a more expensive top up shop. Boots Chemist, Paul's Bakery/café & Pret A Manger, also close by to Earls Court tube. Very spacious apartment with a great kitchen (fantastic electric oven), but the small 'Smeg' fridge is in a difficult position to open the door, but no alternative. Living room - so comfortable to have two couches to stretch out on & watch the enormous tv. A smaller tv is in the bedroom too. Comfy queen size bed just needs something to stop the bed rolling away from the wall on the floor boards. Lots of bedroom wardrobe space, big bathroom with separate shower (not over a bath), with lots of mirrors. Large rain shower head - very nice but probably just needs a lime scale clean out to build up pressure again. Also, initially disconcerting that the apartment looks straight out on to the street but the windows have been cleverly tinted so no one can see in. Just pull the curtains before turning on the lights at night! Perhaps sheer curtains could be installed? Compact laundry cupboard with a very efficient washer/dryer combo unit. Laundry pods supplied & a clothes airer to hang wet washing. Seems the management have thought of everything. Only a couple of tiny niggles but when is anything, even in your own home perfect! Thanks to Alex for his fantastic management, we peppered him with so many questions pre arrival. Would totally recommend this apartment & we definitely plan to return next year. The best place we have stayed in London in years. Lisa & Anthony - Melbourne Australia.

The property was very well equipped, warm, comfortable and perfectly suited to our family of six. I would definitely recommend the property. South Kensington underground stop has minimal stairs so travelling with suitcases was no hassle.

The location could not be better...really!!!! Near the subway station, with many shops around, 7m walk to Hyde Park for walks, 15m walk down to the Thames (Chelsea Embankment) for more walks... As for the apartment, it was a breeze of fresh air. Bright and sunny, very comfortable and extremely clean. The owner was very helpful with any questions I might have asked prior to the stay and Ms. Roces, although very discreet, was always at hand should anything be needed. Thank you for a wonderful London experience Ms. Nassif. I would definitely rent your apartment again.
