About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A charming and elegant 2 bedroom apartment conveniently situated steps away from world famous Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and all the Sloane Street and Brompton Road shops.

Thirty year London home of Hollywood composer. Perfect for one or two couples exploring London, and overlooking Basil Street with a perfect mixture of comfort and elegance. The flat is located on the first floor of Lincoln House (in the UK this is one floor up) and is accessible via steps or elevator. The closest tube stop is Knightsbridge, and the flat is located midway between the Sloane Street entrance and the Harrods entrance. Kings Road is a ten minute walk at the end of Sloane Street. The building has two porters which are available to assist with deliveries.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Not suitable for very young children.

The flat has a local phone, and also a US based phone with a New York (631) telephone number which can be used for unlimited free calls to and from the US.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Knightsbridge on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes and is a short train ride to Victoria Station, which is fifteen minutes away by cab - Bonnie Cacavas.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

I just spent two weeks in Bonnie's flat. While the photos are accurate, they fail to do justice to the proportions of the rooms--the living room and bedrooms are high-ceilinged and, thus, the windows, which are nearly floor to ceiling, are enormous. As a result, the rooms are filled with light. When you return to the flat after a day out, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy the beautiful living room. And while you're at it, have a look at John Cacavas's memoirs (there is a copy amongst the varied selection of books in the flat), he and Bonnie had properly glamorous careers composing music for film and television--I enjoyed reading it.

I would happily return to this flat. As other reviewers have mentioned, Bonnie is very organized so making arrangements for staying there are easy; the flat is ideally located for using public transportation; and the flat is attractive and comfortable. I will certainly be booking another stay here.

Lovely apartment in a fabulous part of London!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Bonnie's apartment and loved the convenience to shopping, dining, the Tube, and buses. My 2 teenage children enjoyed exploring the neighborhood on their own. It felt safe with activity even later into the evening. The accommodations were exactly as described. The rooms are large and well-furnished. The only draw back is there is no large table for dining. We made dinner several nights as we were too tired to go out. The apt is well-stocked with all the essential cookingware. Bonnie was pleasant and prompt in responding to questions. The directions were clear and we got right to the apt after a long flight. We would highly recommend this apartment.

Second stay even better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

We just used this flat for the second time with some friends. Both couples enjoyed having the two bathrooms and spacious bedrooms. Improvements since the last time included a new washer-dryer in the kitchen that worked wonderfully and improvements to the master bath. Love the location, ease of finding restaurants, grocery stores, and all the wonders of London. The decorated Christmas windows in all the department stores were revealed before we left on Nov. 9 and that was a special treat. We always enjoy The Metro restaurant just down the street and like Sale e Pepe across the street also. Good pubs nearby and of course, Harrods with all its wonderful shopping. Thanks to Bonnie for all the good information before the trip and help with small problems while we were there. All details were clearly explained and taken care of well before the trip. Would love to go back!

Excellent choice for independent travellers

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is a large and beautiful flat in a perfect central London location. The living areas and bedrooms are generously proportioned, beautifully presented and great for a family, or 4 people sharing. Easy walk to Knightsbridge tube station and buses (Sloane St or Brompton Rd).

The location is excellent, near Harrods, Harvey Nichols and supermarkets (M&S Food, Waitrose and Sainsburys), which made dining in and relaxing at home in the evenings very easy. Sale e Pepe restaurant across the road was very good and there are numerous places to eat in Sloane Square, a short bus ride or 15 minute walk down Sloane St.

Interaction with the owner, Bonnie, was smooth and the information provided in the flat was thorough and made the stay trouble free. Overall a fantastic place to stay in London. Can't wait to return.

Excellent flat in nice neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is just perfect for a group of 4 travelers to London. So close to Harrods, the tube, buses, restaurants. It was so nice to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen where we could prepare some of our own meals. There is a very good Italian restaurant right across the street: Sale e Pepe for a quick bite or a formal meal. Bonnie was very responsive before we left and also while we were there when the internet went down. For the most part it is a very quiet flat, but can be more noisy when the upstairs neighbors are home, so be prepared to hear upstairs footsteps, etc. All in all, highly recommend the flat. We primarily went to London at this time of year for the Chelsea Flower Show which was amazing! Also enjoyed the London SkyGarden (make a reservation), the Victoria and Albert Museum, and seeing Book of Mormon! We'll be back!!

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a delight to return to this beautiful accommodation and receive that welcoming call from Bonnie. We love the location: we would stroll to Hyde Park for a coffee and watch the horseguards in the exercise ring, or walk in the evening to the Royal Albert Hall for a concert. We would take bus or tube to Oxford Street, Covent Garden or Portobello Road, Kew Gardens or Richmond. Nights at home were a pleasure and we enjoyed takeout from the local Ottolenghi deli as well as supplies from Harrod's and the nearby supermarkets...Sainsbury's, Marks and Spenser's and Waitrose. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, bathrooms are lovely, and we appreciate the provision of pantry staples. It's easy to communicate with Bonnie if you have any questions. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in London!
