                                                      A fabulous home-like base for London

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) loved the flat as a base for our week stay in London. The listing was an accurate representation of the flat itself, and was very clean on arrival. It had plenty of space for us all. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was adequately equipped so we could cook some nights, and we could do some much needed washing after 3 weeks travelling prior to London. The bus and tube were no more than 10-15 mins walk away (depending on the stop or station needed), and on the weekend only 2 mins to Olympia overground. We could walk to some very nice areas such as Notting Hill and Holland Park. There are good take aways nearby, pubs, and a comprehensive supermarket. The owners were very responsive to our queries in the lead-up to our visit. They were very forthcoming with information and provided us with a detailed map and other documents after we booked, as well as offering further assistance. They were also very helpful with a couple of small things after our arrival, even late at night. As we spent most days out touring, it was a great place to come "home" to and relax. We would stay here again and recommend it to others. Thanks, Hugo and Lizzie!

                                                      Modern and cosy home away from home

                                                      4 of 5
                                                      The hammersmith apartment looked nice from the pictures and did not disappoint us when we entered the apartment the first time. The apartment was clean, nicely decorated and had everything we wanted. And the location was a perfect match for us. The owner responded very quick to questions. Next trip to London we will certainly try to stay here again.

                                                      The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat on Sinclair Gardens met every expectation

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      The ground floor flat on Sinclair Gardens, West Kensington was excellent and set the tone for a wonderful holiday in London and points beyond in England. Communication with the owner, Georgia, was always prompt, and all my pesky questions were answered without hesitation. Check-in information was detailed and provided early enough to preclude arrival anxiety. The owner's agent, George, was courteous, welcoming, and explained much about the apartment and the neighborhood. He was also invaluable in arranging livery service from the airport to and from Heathrow airport. The flat was perfect for 2 couples. With 2 bathrooms, there was never an issue. Living room was plenty comfortable for all to relax after a full day of touring. Kitchen and amenities were perfectly suited for our needs. The flat was clean and well maintained. The flat is only 1/4 mile from the Shepherds Bush underground station/transportation station, which makes it super convenient to get to any point in London. Two excellent pubs(Havelock Tavern and Bird in the Hand) are also only a 1/4 mile walk from the flat. Grocery shopping is also convenient at the nearby Morrison's. My wife and I, and her parents were completely satisfied with the flat itself, the location and the entire booking process. No hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a good value in London.
