Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 15 minutes to the West End

Live like a Londoner. The flat has its own entrance as originally it was a corner shop.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen is at ground level with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, if you wish. It has an oven, microwave, gas hob with extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge, freezer. There are two stools for eating at a counter.

A few steps down to the two bedrooms and shower room (with toilet and basin) and en suite bathroom (Shower over tub, basin, toilet and bidet).

The master bedroom, with en suite, can be arranged as a King bed (6ft wide) or as two extra long twin beds. It opens onto a small patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a evening drink. Smoking is allowed on the patio.

The other bedroom has a Queen bed (5 1/2 ft wide bed).

The living room has two sofas, one of which has a small double sofa bed.

The dining room seats 6.

The entire flat is about 900 ft 2 (80 square meters).

This is a non-smoking, non-pet flat.

We provide some items for your arrival but you will probably have to get more, especially for stays of more than a few days. Items include shower gel, hand wash, toilet paper, paper towel, dishwasher tabs, dishwashing liquid, tea, coffee, oil & vinegar.

We have a crib and high chair for use at no charge, upon request. Due to the nature of the decoration, the flat is okay for 2-5 year olds only if they are well behaved. It'll save you from constantly running after them.

About Joel Schweitzer

An American living in London for more than 17 years.

Joel Schweitzer purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Joel Schweitzer chose Little Venice

The flat used to be a corner shop. It still has the stained glass windows with farm scenes. As I grew up on a dairy farm there was some resonance for me.

I was looking for a project and this house had to be completely redone. I have enjoyed doing it up, while learning the history of the area and the type of construction typical to London in the mid-19th century.

What makes this apartment unique

You'll like the location as it is central to the best parts of London. The area is quiet and residential but close to shops and restaurants.

We hope you, like other guests, will feel very comfortable in a flat that is like a home, much more than a rental flat or a hotel room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED this flat! It was exactly as pictured and described in all previous photos and reviews. Perfect for 2 couples with a busy London sightseeing schedule. It's a very quiet street and only a 10 minute walk to Paddington Station (train and tube). We were so busy that we didn't get to spend much time here - our only regret! And our hosts - Joel and Nacho were WONDERFUL! Friendly, helpful, available and FUN! I will return to this flat in a heartbeat the next time we visit London. And I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to visit London and have a clean, quiet place to come "home" to at night.

Great London flat for our family of 4! Easy access to Paddington station and lots of restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, neatly kept apartment. Easy to access. Hosts were so nice to meet us early and keep our luggage. Welcome binder was useful! We were happy to be able to do laundry after a long week of traveling! Note: if you’re staying for more then a few days, plan on shopping for toiliet paper, paper towels, soap, etc. No big deal, just good to know because some of the stores close early!

Wonderful apartment near Paddington station

  • 5 of 5

Joel and Nacho were both very kind and eager to help. They even lent us their own portable air-conditioning unit. The Apartment is a short 5 minute walk to Paddington Station making transportation very convenient! The apartment was very clean and comfortable!

Cute flat, great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay here. Joel was easy to communicate with. A couple minor things went wrong but nothing hugely notable, except the early morning doorbell from owner and plumber letting us know we couldn’t use the hot water for a bit while owners flat was being worked on. The plumber then visited a few more times having to access the bathroom and the room our boys were asleep in which was very awkward. They then had to come back again later in the day when the boys were alone in the apartment. I understand these type of maintenance issues are unexpected/unplanned, but still affected the overall experience for me. Best part was location though. Close to restaurants and transportation. I would suggest that Joel enhance his binder at the property to include small things like how to run the washer/dryer, to let folks know they need to provide their own tp and paper towels and tips on how to open the door where the recycling and trash bins are. Obviously we figured everything out, but it’s nice to have something in the flat to refer to for advise. I would recommend and would stay again should we return to London.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place. There were three of us and it worked perfectly for our needs. We all got to do laundry when we needed to. The location was so convenient to Paddington Station, we were able to get everywhere we wanted to go. Also, there were lots of restaurants close and a couple of grocery stores. I would highly recommend this location.

Beautiful flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, beautiful flat, a short walk from Paddington. We liked the proximity of cool restaurants and were very appreciative of Joel’s hospitality and help navigating things. I’d stay here again any day.
