Thank you Sarah

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciate you meeting us upon arrival. It is a great apartment and a great location. Victoria station one direction and Pimlico tube the other. We were very comfortable in the apt. It was VERY quiet at night. A lovely neighborhood. The apartment was clean and everything worked. I loved it and would stay here again.

Thank you, Sarah, for great accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Garden House! Very central. Many iconic London sights within walking distance which was wonderful. The Pimlico tube station only a short distance from the house can whisk you off to anywhere the tube goes and is extremely efficient. Get that Oyster card as this makes transit travel absolutely fool proof. Having a basic pantry at the house was very helpful and we used the kitchen every day. We had a great time and enjoyed our visit immensely. Thank you Sarah! Two thumbs up!

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This ladies trip included three generations of women: my mother, my daughter and I. We had a wonderful time reconnecting and exploring the city. This is a great place to stay in London - safe neighborhood, close to the underground, centrally located. There was a supermarket and great deli just a half a block away. Sarah was great! Very accommodating to our needs both arriving and departing. I would highly recommend that you rent this flat for you next London trip. You won't regret it!!

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sarah for sharing your lovely home with us. The location of this rental is fantastic, close to transportation and within walking distance of many popular sites. We were a group of four women and we felt very safe even the nights we arrived home quite late I felt safe walking in the neighbourhood. There was plenty of room (we each had our own space) and loved having 3.5 bathrooms. Sarah was prompt to answer my many questions and was so kind to get us started by supplying milk and juice for our first breakfast. Thank you, I hope to return.

Perfect little house

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. The house is located on a beautiful street. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and it was perfect how it was split over 3 floor.

This is somewhere we will definitely come back to and stay again. Thank you very much

A unique house in the Conservation area of Pimlico, close to Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the West End. The Tate Britain and the Thames are both five minutes walk away.

Although most of the house is 150 years old, it has been sympathetically refurbished to combine modern appliances with original features. At the heart of the house is a handmade kitchen with exposed brick fireplace, corniced ceilings and modern appliances, including a dishwasher. The kitchen is equipped with seating for six.

There is a luxurious double reception room with Philippe Stark furnishings and Bang & Olufsen appliances, including a TV and CD player. For those wishing to entertain, porcelain, silver cutlery and Irish and Venetian crystal are provided. Access to caterers, cleaners and dry clean collection/drop-off can be arranged.

Sleeping accommodation comprises two smart double bedrooms each with access to a charming patio terrace, and a bathroom and shower room respectively. The rear terrace has extensive seating and a working water fountain. In addition, there is a top floor studio with a luxurious sofa bed, an ensuite shower room and an outside balcony with seating. The studio space is equipped with TV, extensive DVD collection and a Wii console.

There is both a cafe and a famous delicatessen within metres of the house. On the adjacent street, there is a full range of amenities, small but well stocked supermarket, dry cleaners, laundrette, Indian restaurant, friendly pub and colourful Tapas bar. There is a fantastic variety of shops, bars and restaurants near Victoria Station. Across the River Thames is Battersea Park, ideal for running, walking and tennis. Tennis raquets and balls are provided. Guest membership of a nearby gym can be arranged for £5 per day.

Victoria train, coach and bus stations are all within ten minutes' walk and Pimlico tube station is on the adjacent street. There is a row of 'Boris' bikes available for hire metres from the house.

The house is exceptionally quiet, yet moments away from the sights and sounds of Central London and all the city has to offer.
