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.

Fabulous, conveniently located - a Real Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mia's quaint flat - she was an amazing hostess - helped us with everything ( from getting to the flat from Heathrow to bringing us a fan etc) Mia was always available ! Loved the location- easy to get too from the tube. We loved the coffee shops and esp The Curtains Up restaurant on the corner. 3 days in London is not enough - Mia we will be back !!

Great Location, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (late 60's) stayed here for six nights in May. It is a first floor one room studio that is nicely furnished with all the necessities. It was great having a washing machine. Very comfortable bed and it was quite at night as it is located out side the city, but a short 5 minuted walk to the tube and and in 20 minutes you are in the heart of London. We enjoyed the local bakery next to the tube and Latmers in Barons Court. Also enjoyed the Hansom Cab, The Blackbird, Little French Restaurant and LaPappardella in Earls Court. Tesco and CoOp grocery stores a short walk away. Mia was a fantastic host who was available by e-mail and lived a short distance away. She was very helpful before and during our stay. She stored our luggage at her place and met us at the tube so we could attend the changing of the guard on our last day in London. If we return to London Mia's studio would be our first choice. We highly recommend staying there.

Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfect for our stay! It was close to the Tube station and was easy to get to from Heathrow. We were only a handful of Tube stops away from London's famous attractions! It was clean and well-kept. We also enjoyed the coffee shop that was around the corner.

Mia was super helpful! She went out of her way to help us!

Spacious and well equipt, quiet street and very handy for tube. Wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed here for 5days in April as he was running the London Marathon..Mia was fantastic right from when we made our booking in 2016 and she kept in touch until we arrived.

We had an early flight so Mia was very kind and let us in the property at 10.30am which saved us carrying our luggage around.

The studio was very spacious with everything we required for our stay... the tube station is not even a 5 minute walk away which is very handy.

We visited the pub at the end of the street which was very nice and everyone was really friendly..

On our last day out flight was not till 8pm but we had to be out by 11am however Mia very kindly offered to keep our bags so we could go and enjoy our day.. she even met us at the tube station to make it easier for us which I thought was just amazing.

We would stay here again if we are traveling for the marathon next year.

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.
