About the property

Top quality London apartment, beautifully furnished, for discerning guests

This wonderful London apartment has a light, sunny and airy atmosphere. It is fitted with high quality furnishings so it would suit guests looking for a very central location, a quiet residential area, and expecting luxury accommodation standards.

There is excellent and reliable internet and we offer free wifi.

It doesn't have aircon, but does have a large free-standing room fan.

There is a spacious bedroom with a king-size French-style bed, wonderful mattress and beautiful linen. Along one wall are fitted cupboards and wardrobe, and there is a full-size mirror, chairs, bedside tables and lamps.

In the sitting room there are two large comfy sofas - one turns into a double sofabed (please note extra charge) - and there are coffee tables, lamps and a plasma wall TV. To one side of the sitting room is a dining table and chairs - to seat up to four.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the shower-room is excellent with a good strong shower.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a small apartment block which has no lift but this gives interesting views over the rooftops of central London, towards Oxford Street and Marble Arch. You will need to climb 4 flights of stairs, so the apartment is not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties.

The apartment belongs to us (we are a well travelled English couple and not a rental company) and we can promise you we spared no expense in fitting and furnishing the interior - to our own tastes. We use the apartment sometimes, so everything is of the highest standard of comfort, and everything you could possibly need is there - from a powerful hairdryer to a high-tech potato peeler! We have tried to think of everything. For example... we put blinds on all the windows as well as pretty curtains so that you won't be woken by the sunshine... we put plenty of hangers in the wardrobe... we put loads of cutlery and utensils in the kitchen drawers... we put pleasing wine glasses in the cupboard rather than the cheapest... we put goosedown pillows on the beds as well as providing a choice of polyester filled for allergy sufferers... We want our guests to have a fantastic time in London and we've done our very best to make sure the accommodation exceeds everyone's expectations.

About Jan Stewart

We are a semi retired couple, lucky enough to have three houses in the world. This is our lovely central London flat, and we rent it when we are away. Our daughter is on hand for any queries.

Why Jan Stewart chose London

It's a lovely airy sunny flat with great views over the rooftops. And it's so central you can walk to anywhere. We adore it.

Fabulous Marleybone Flat!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely and charming flat in the heart of Marleybone is quite simply ideal for visiting the city. It is comfortable and cozy with many amenities, including a well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, TV with many channels to choose from, Bluetooth speaker for listening to music, not to mention the lovely view over the surrounding roof tops. It could not be more conveniently located, being only a five minute walk to Marleybone station with both rail and Tube connections. A slightly longer walk brings you to Baker Street Tube and Marleybone Road. Along the way, you will find many shops and some very nice pubs. There are many places to shop for groceries within an easy walk as well. Regents Park is minutes away, as is the lovely area surrounding Marleybone High Street with its many chic boutiques and eateries. Oxford Street is easily accessible by Tube, bus, or a 20 minute walk.

There are so many special things to say about this flat, but the most special thing about it are its owners, Jan and Mike Stewart. From the moment they greeted us on arrival, making us feel so welcome and right at home, we knew our stay on Ivor Place would be wonderful, and that we had found new friends in London.

Long weekend in London

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early on Friday and were greeted by a very friendly woman who showed us up to the flat. It was exactly as we expected - small but spacious, stylish and comfortable = perfect!

It is walking distance from Marylebone and Baker Street tube stations which is ideal for visiting the rest of the city but we spent most of our time walking in regents park which is just a short walk (5mins) away! There are some lovely little pubs and restaurants nearby too. All in all a great weekend, would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you loved Marylebone - we think it's a really special place too. And thankyou for pointing out how close the apartment is to Regent's Park. We don't really mention that much in our details as we imagine everyone visiting wants to see the tourist sites which are so easy to reach from the flat. But I agree that Regent's Park is very beautiful, perfect for romantic strolling, or for amusing the children, and it's right on our doorstep. I look forward to welcoming you back to the apartment again.

9 "top" days

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 people (with two kids) we really enjoyed the apartment. Clean, tidy, cosy, pretty spacious (real 50 m²), it's got two separate rooms, 2 big beds, kitchenette and bathroom in perfect order and with all the facilities of modern comfort. In the sitting room you also get one more big sofa and an enlargeable table, large enough to have a comfortable breakfast.

It's located in a very quiet area, at the 4th floor (no lift, though) with a very nice wiev across the rooftops, just 2 minutes walking from Marylebone Underground/Railway Station and a few more from Baker Street Tube Station, at easy reach to many grocery shops, pubs, restaurants, etc.

Definitely an excellent choice.

4 days in London (French tourist)

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in. A very quiet area (I was surprised to hear so little noise in the morning). Close to the train station (Marylebone). Close to 2 tube stations (Baker St and Marylebone). You can also have a 20mn walk to Oxford Street.

The flat is very confortable with everything you need. The bed is very comfy. It's big enough for 4. You can also easily find a place to eat or have a drink in the area.

Nice stay in this flat.

20min à pieds d'Oxford Street, mais sinon proche de deux stations de métro et de la gare Marylebone. A qq pas de là, rue animée avec pubs, supérettes, restaurants, (on a pu manger à 23h30 un soir alors qu'il n'y avait plus rien d'ouvert après un spectacle dans le centre).

L'appartement a tout: frigo, micro-onde, plaques, bouilloire, couverts, télé, canapé +canapé-lit. Les photos reflètent l'appartement. Lit confortable et couette chaude!

Très bon séjour. A renouveler!

Owner's Response: We don't encourage four people to sleep in the bed (!) but yes it is king size. I'm glad you agree that Marylebone is such a surprising area - so close to transport links and the centre, and yet so quiet and residential. Glad you had a great time.

Our luxury apartment is in Marylebone, which is an upmarket residential area right in the very heart of central London. All the main tourist sites - Marble Arch, Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, Hyde Park etc are within walking distance. The main shopping locations of Oxford Street and Regent Street are just down the road and are easily walkable. Similarly, if you want to see Mayfair, Park Lane or Soho you can easily walk. Madame Tussauds (London's famous waxworks), the Sherlock Holmes Museum, London Zoo and Regent's Park (rowing boats) are just around the corner from the apartment (great for children). If you prefer not to walk, you have Baker Street tube station (a main 'hub' station on London's underground rail) just four minutes' walk away and Marylebone tube station even closer, just three minutes' walk away.

Marylebone is a small but distinct part of London with its own very special historic atmosphere. It is known as a 'village' because of its concentration of beautiful Georgian houses. It's a place you'll love if you've never been before - and it's certainly a place where you'll feel safe.
