Lovely stay near Earls Court
Nice ground floor flat on a mostly quiet cobblestone street, less than 10 minute walk to 2 tube stops. Very close to a few small shops and restaurants, as well as grocery. Well appointed and a great location for exploring various places in London.
A few minor concerns were the windows did not open (so got stuffy, though there was a fan) and one day there was no hot water. I did not contact the property manager about water, since it was our last day, so can’t say whether it would have been resolved. Although there was a sofa bed in living room, as well as a queen bed in bedroom, it may not be comfortable for 4 people (we were 2). It was necessary to walk through bedroom and kitchen to get to bathroom. Fine for a couple and 1-2 young kids, but may be uncomfortable for 4 adults.
Overall a great place to call home during our week visiting London.
Kensington One Bedroom
This our second time we have stayed at this property. It is located in neighborhood surrounded by bakeries, restaurants, shopping, groceries and easy access to several tube stations. The condo is well designed for comfort with many amenities. This is the place to stay when visiting London. We would highly recommend this property.
Quiet, Lovely, Convenient Location - Strict Policies
I was very disappointed with the inflexibility of the rental company in not allowing us to store our carry-on luggage prior to checking in without a significant cost. We asked if we could store two rolling carry-on bags for 3 hours and were told that we would have to pay an early check-in rate of 40 pounds if we wanted to store for 2 hours and 60 pounds for 3 hours. This seemed very unreasonable especially since they could have been easily tucked into a closet while the cleaning person cleaned after the prior tenant. Every other hotel or accommodation we stayed in was understanding of our requests and allowed us to leave luggage either before or after check-in for a few hours while we were waiting for our flights. For a VBRO this seems too restrictive a policy.
Also, we were without hot water for our first day and evening, which after looking at prior reviews had been an issue in past experiences. This was fixed by a very nice person who came in the next morning who said that he had made several trips in the past. It appears that they are cutting costs to fix this but not afraid to charge for storing luggage. I believe we should be given some monetary refund for this inconvenience.
The property is lovely, clean and very quiet. It is a small apartment suitable for a couple but would be tight for more than two people. It is on a quaint street in a great part of London. Easily walkable to many sites and transportation services. If the company was more accommodating to its temporary tenants then I would recommend this place to a couple.
Thank you for your review.
See below the guests note thanking me for giving them a refund due to no hot water.
So we most surprised that the guest states no compensation was given.
This was reported at 8 pm and resolved at their request 8 am the next morning.
We do our best to keep all our guests happy but we run on a tight schedule for our team and we need the apartments empty.
Ok thank you for that gesture. ****
Live like a local!
The location and neighborhood are superb! My daughter and I stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. Made regular stops at the local pub and the various local shops. Quick walk to high street Kensington station which is smaller than most and easily manageable for those new to the tube. We never cooked but did use the laundry (the dryer works differently than in USA- ask for instructions about the water reservoir). I didn’t find the bed comfortable but that was the only negative. Plenty of pillows, towels etc. Absolutely wonderful trip. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
This is a lovely property well located in Kensington. It is well appointed. With everything you need. There are shops around the corner to buy groceries, a pharmacy, lovely pub, great Italian bakery cafe and a wine store. Two underground stations make transport around London very easy. The area is safe for late night walking. It was great to sit out in the late afternoon and enjoy a glass of wine in the sun.
Great stay in London
Very nice apartment in a quiet area with use a 15-20 minute walk to the subway and grocery. Tastefully appointed, with a very comfortable bed and a beautiful bathroom. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated.
Some of the most charming and quintessentially English parts of London are the little mews streets dotted about the capital. Typically set aback from busier main roads with pretty houses, London’s mews houses provided a secluded and elegant haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. At Radley Mews, you can enjoy the peace and seclusion of one of London’s prettiest mews streets whilst being close to a wealth of attractions by being based in the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Close by your holiday home are both Kensington high street with gorgeous shops, bars, pubs and restaurants as well as South Kensington, London’s museum quarter. You’ll find a rich world of cultural heritage here with the capitals best cluster of free museums alongside iconic buildings like Kensington Palace Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall.
The world famous Natural History Museum is a short 15 minute walk or 8 minute bus ride from the Mews House. The museum is one of London’s real gems, a world renowned centre for research into the natural world as well as being a fantastic day out. You can come face-to-face with a T-Rex skeleton or take a journey through the Earth sculpture as you explore the Red Zone. In the summer months the grounds play host to the ‘Sensational Butterflies’ experience. Here you can get close up with giant butterflies and moths as they fly around and land on you. In winter the museum also hosts a ice rink.
Across the street is another icon museum, the Science Museum. The Science Museum caters to people of all ages and can keep both young and old enthralled. There are interactive displays, galleries and attractions as well as the 3D Imax cinema showing fantastic science related documentaries and films.
Finally we come to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, it is one of many monuments in the area to the Royal couple. Explore exhibitions of art, jewellery, design and clothing from the past 3000 years. Highlights include furniture, sculptures, fine ceramics and textiles.
Kensington high street seamlessly blends Victorian and modern architecture to create an area which emotes real elegance. You’ll get a feel of polished refinement and perfect finishing. Don’t worry, behind this Kensington has a genuinely inviting nature. High street highlights include Urban Outfitters and Whole Foods Market. Stop by the large organic food store and market set in a former department store. Find a delicious, healthy and reasonably priced lunch or dinner to eat in store or on the go.
Above the busy Kensington High Street you can find the hidden oasis of Kensington Roof Gardens. Sitting atop fabulous old buildings, the area is home to the award winning restaurant, Babylon. There are also beautiful gardens, four resident flamingos and fantastic bars to boot.
Kensington is home to some of London’s largest and most beautiful green spaces. At one end of Kensington High Street you’ll find Kensington Palace, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in their London residence before exploring the palace museum.
Explore the beautifully kept Kensington gardens which lead into another Royal Park and one of London’s most instantly recognisable landmarks, Hyde Park. The two parks cover a vast swath of West London and are home to numerous cafe’s as well as the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine and Long Water lakes. Enjoy them on a sunny day by hiring a pedal boat or by taking a relaxing and cooling dip in the water. Or just relax and enjoy the beautiful green oasis.
The Mews House is under 10 minutes walk from Earls Court tube station. From here you can travel directly to St Pancras station in 22 minutes, connecting with services across the UK and international services via Eurostar. You can also reach Heathrow terminals 1,2 & 3 in 25 minutes. Both are accessible via the Piccadilly line.
