About Carol-anne Turner

Hello and welcome to my world! As a young school leaver, I fell into the restaurant business, which I did for 12 years and really loved it, I worked my way up to managing a local restaurant, where my son was practically born, luckily I made it to hospital in time, he is now 28 and has presented me with my first grandchild, they live in Barcelona where I hope to add another apartment to the 'stable'. Bringing up my son meant a career change, I became a food stylist, then a stylist, which led to a very low rung of costume design in movies, as I got older I decided to take a risk and switch to Make Up Artist as I always loved that side of the business, also I noticed they left the set hours before I did! and I was getting a little long in the tooth to stand for hours on end on a shoot... Well I inherited this property from my lovely grandpa who came to this country from Poland with just the clothes on his back, and made good as the saying goes. He always said this house would be mine one day, but I never realized he meant it, but he made good on his word, so when my son was six, we moved into the ground floor. There were seven tenants on the two floors above, it was noisy! as the years went by and the tenants left, I didn't replace them, but started converting the house into the 3 lovely apartments they are today. I live on the ground floor and always here to help. Though these days I am a frequent traveller to Barcelona to see my darling Clementine, then I will leave you in the capable hands of my second in command Mia..

Carol-anne Turner purchased this apartment in 1940

Why Carol-anne Turner chose Belsize Park

Its a beautiful Edwardian house, with large windows that let in a lot of light, its what I love most about it. I have lavished a lot of love and care on this place over the years. I really treasure this place and I hope you will too.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay in this Belsize park space. It is gorgeous, extremely comfortable and in the perfect location. We stayed with our two kids and the the size was perfect! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. Carol-Anne has thought of every detail to make guests comfortable! The owner is such a sweet and incredible woman, my daughter loved her so much that she was hoping Carol-Anne was home to have dinner with us one of the evenings we were there. We will stay again in a heartbeat if we make it back to London. It is truly a gem and I highly recommend this place! You will not be disappointed.

Great stay - couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO and it couldn't have been better. Our flight was delayed by 10 hours, and Mia was there to greet us even after 10 PM at night. She even offered to shop for groceries for us because of late arrival. The apartment was as it was in the pictures: elegant, neat and clean with enough sleeping space for two adults and two children. It was just a short walk away from a couple of bakeries/coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and the Belsize Park Underground station to get to London sights. It was also great to meet Carol Ann (the owner) in person, and our daughter even got to exchange notes on college with her niece who was visiting at that time. We made use of Mia's offer to arrange transportation to and from Heathrow, and Carol Ann even paid for the car to the airport due to a small mix-up, even though we offered to pay for it.

Beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

A lovely bright flat that's beautifully decorated. The milk, biscuits, tea and coffee (Nespresso!) were very much appreciated when we arrived. Grocery stores nearby and the Belsize Park tube station just up the street. Just one important thing to note: the flat is on the top floor and there is no lift, so those with heavy bags or limited mobility may have difficulty.

Great stay close to all the action!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome find!! I'm so glad I chose this rental for 11 days. The flat was exactly as described top floor, very spacious and bright. All modern amenities of home the milk,coffee tea and biscuits were a great touch out of the gate. Only minor complaint would be maybe another set of bath towels. Overall I would absolutely recommend this flat hands down!

A Wonderful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Whenever I stay in London in the past I always stay in Bloomsbury. I was a little concerned when I booked this apartment in Belsize Park. How foolish was I. The location of this apartment was wonderful. It was less than a block away from the tube station, a great supermarket, bakeries and restaurants. My cousin and I couldn't want for anything in the area. It was a lovely walk away from Hampstead and Camden Town. You not only had access to the tube but also a number of bus lines that could take you to various parts of London.

The apartment was comfortable with enough space for the two of us. It was light and airy sitting on the top floor of the house. There was a washing machine and a dryer which I love to have.

Carol Anne and Mia were very easy to work with. Carol Anne was responsive to any questions we had and helped us throughout the visit. We stayed for 8 nights and we would happily have stayed for another week. It was very hard to leave this apartment. I would without a doubt stay in this apartment again.

Perfect location, stylish space.

  • 5 of 5

After a frenetic day of sightseeing in London central, it was wonderful to return to the tranquility of Belsize Park and our stylish apartment, a five minute walk from the tube.The apartment was very well appointed and thoughtfully stocked with necessities. Carol is a friendly and helpful owner who was there to meet us and show us through the apartment. The apartment is situated in a lovely street with a convenient choice of restaurants, coffee shops and a supermarket.

Nearest Airport
18 Miles
Car: not necessary

As mentioned before, unique movie house with cosy sofas for 2 and waitress service. Our very own local stately home; Kenwood House. Keats house, home of the poet, open to the public. Burgh House, another original historical property rarely found in the guide books. Local swimming baths, gym with day pass options for the more sporty minded, plus acres of open space for joggers, yet the heart of the city is only a short tube ride, this area is pretty unique, you will be delighted to have discovered it, urban not suburban, yet green and eclectic, as a long time resident, i hope to pass on my love of London and particularly Belsize park.
