This delightful large, affordable self contained & self catering double studio on the ground floor of this period Victorian house in Barons Court (W14). An ideal base for exploring London, situated close to Barons Court Tube (District & Piccadilly line-great for Heathrow), meters from Queens Club (LTA Tennis Championships). You can enjoy all the comforts of home, we are an ideal establishment for both leisure and business breaks, where privacy and comfort are a number one priority and free Wi Fi comes as standard. Perfect for 1 to 2 people can sleep 3.

The large studio is fully self contained and as such you will have 'free reign' over the place.There is a fully fitted kitchen including oven, hob, and a washing machine. The area is quite large considering, with a area for dining table, and chairs, as well as two bedside tables, and wardrobe.

It is close to the River Thames (with a 17th century River Pub), the Queen’s Club is only 70 to 80 meters away which holds the annual LTA Tennis Championship before Wimbledon.

Cozy studio with easy access to public transportation

  • 5 of 5

Mia greeted us at the door, showed us around the studio, and gave us some nice tips on daytime activities. She remained available when needed by text. The studio itself was clean, in a nice location (minutes walk away from the tube station), and had any necessary accommodations. Would highly recommend this location and hostess!

Perfect location for a quick getaway to London!!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to head to London to attend the NFL game at Wembley in early October. This was the final leg of our vacation that started with stops in Iceland and France. We arrived Saturday afternoon by train, and contacted Mia to let her know we were on our way to the flat. When we arrived, she was there and walked us through the flat and how to connect to the wifi. She also gave us directions to the local shops for anything we would need. Mia was very attentive and helpful during our stay.

The flat itself was perfect for the two of us. It is a studio with a full size bed, fully stocked kitchen, washing machine and a nice bathroom. We were out sightseeing for most of our trip, so we didn't spend a lot of time in the flat, however we did find time to run to the store and cook dinner one night during our stay. This was a nice option with the hustle of London.

The location of the flat is also perfect for those wanting to have a true London experience. It is nicely located between Barons Court and South Kensington Underground stops. This puts you in the middle of Piccadilly Circus in just a few stops, and a quick change on the tube and you can see all of London's "greatest hits" tourist stops.

We were able to find a couple of local pubs in the area and meet some very nice people from the neighborhood. This is my favorite part of traveling....meeting new people and hearing their stories. I have been to London over a dozen times and this ranks as one of my favorite experiences when it comes to accommodations.

Trust me...you cannot go wrong with booking this flat for your stay!! Thanks again Mia for allowing us to stay and finishing off an execelent vacation at your flat!!

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mia's studio was perfect! Her communication and helpfulness prior to our trip was outstanding! She met us at the tube even though we weren't able to communicate with her that we were on our way! She took care of everything and answered all our questions and went above and beyond! We had our 9 year old daughter with us and she slept in the pullout bed which worked perfectly for us. It was a short walk to the Tube stop which took us anywhere we wanted to go in London. Perfect location, perfect hostess, wonderful city! We hope you like the Canadian Maple syrup we left you! Thank-you Mia!

Pleasant Stay in West Kensington Studio

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in London in part due to having a comfortable place to stay. From the lead up to our arrival and during our stay, Mia was most attentive and helpful! She met us at the studio and tried to ensure that we had everything we needed. When the temperature dropped a bit lower than expected, she contacted us to make sure we were comfortable. The studio is in a nice little neighbourhood with great access to the tube and some great local amenities. The cafe around the corner was a great place to enjoy coffee and a pastry in the morning. (The staff there was terrific with the exception of the manager/proprietress who had a most unpleasant way about her.) The butcher shop, as mentioned in other reviews, was fantastic and made me wish that we'd made more use of the well equipped kitchen in the studio. The pictures on the studio's profile are very representative of the studio and its furnishings, etc... It was relatively spacious and certainly comfortable for 2 people. The only thing I would have wished had been different would be the towels. I think a slightly higher quality would be nice but I have often found that vrbo's don't go all out on towels; a small thing overall. I would certainly look forward to staying at the studio again on a future trip to London and would encourage others to do the same. Thanks, Mia, for your kind hospitality!

Lovely stay in studio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Mia's studio apartment. This was our 3rd trip to London. We previously stayed near the OXO tower and near New Scotland Yard. Mia met us at the tube stop. The flat is just a few minutes walk from Baron's Court and from West Kensington. Mia contacted us several times during our stay to make sure everything was going well. We made use of the kitchen by eating breakfast and a few dinners in. There is a lovely pub, Curtains Up, just down the street where we had Sunday roast. We liked the butchers near the Barons Court tube stop. A Tesco express was just a few minutes walk away. It was approx a 25 minute tube ride to downtown London. Also, convenient tube stop for returning to Heathrow. I would recommend the apartment.

Queens Club - the famous tennis club, is only meters away from the apartment, perfect for the LTA Finals at Queens. Barons Court is a well heeled residential area of West London, with tube links into Central London only taking ten to twenty minutes depending on where you want to go.

Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earls Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (died 1806) and his English wife Elizabeth (the Margravine, the widow of the 6th Baron Craven).[4] They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The Margravine died in 1828 and is commemorated by a number of roads in the area (Margravine Road and Margravine Gardens) and the Margrave possibly by Barons Court Road although the approximate equivalent rank in the British peerage to Margrave is a Marquess.

The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family.

The platforms at Barons Court.

Perham Road - his wife

Charleville Road - his cousins, the Earls of Charleville

Gledstanes Road - his mother

Barton Road - his grandmother

Challoner Street - his great-grandmother

Fairholme Road - his married sister

Vereker Road - his married aunt, wife of Viscount Gort

Comeragh Road - after the family estate in Ireland

Castletown Road - after the Baronets Pallisers' estate in Ireland

Sir William's brother, John Palliser (the explorer) inherited the Comeragh estate in County Waterford. Sir William did not have an Irish estate of his own. Instead, he tried to develop this London estate. He died very suddenly on 4 February 1882, and the lawyers had a field day, selling everything off, including the 11 acres (45,000 m2) which would become the Queen's Club. Sir William was heavily in debt, though if he had not died so suddenly and had managed to sell many of the houses he could have been a wealthy man. As it was, the family ended up with nothing.
