Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Library, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This charming historic mews house was bought as our own home and therefore doesn't look or feel like a rental home at all . It is furnished with our own antique furniture , fine art and high quality furniture . We are now renting it because we have moved to the country but we still stay there when we are in london and it is not rented .

The house offers the best experience of staying in a prime London location . It is located in Belgravia ( close to the house Margaret Thatcher lived and the Sultan of Brunei ! ) and is excellently positioned for access to all of London's attractions . Two subway stations are within 5 minutes walk , Harrods is 10 minutes away on foot , Buckingham Palace is less and on a summers evening the theatre district is only a 25 minute stroll for those who want to take in the atmosphere or a 10 minute cab ride .

All the major museums and other attractions such as the houses of Parliament , the London Eye and many others including some of the world's most famous shopping are within easy reach . Imagine walking up to the Palace to see the famous changing of the guard and then being able to stroll back to the peace and quiet of your own house .

The house itself is a quiet oasis in the middle of the city . Set in a cobbled mews there is no through traffic and sometimes it is hard to believe that you are so central . The house comes fully equipped with a new kitchen including all the obvious facilities , there is cable TV , a Bang and Olufsen stereo system and a computer available although you are welcome to bring your own and connect to the Wi-Fi throughout the house . In addition , all phone calls both local and international are included in the rental ( provided the calls are kept below 59 minutes long ) so you can keep in touch with family and friends back home while you are away .

There are 2 large bedrooms both with modern en-suite bathrooms . The master bedroom has a beautiful four-poster queen sized bed in keeping with the traditional feel of the whole house . The second bedroom is configured with two single beds. In addition there is a surprisingly comfortable fold-away single bed in the study which can be used if required .

Belgravia , and London generally , is home to some excellent local restaurants and there are all the usual everyday shops (Grocery stores , pharmacies etc) all available within a very short walk and the cafes and bakeries on the next door Elizabeth street are charming and an excellent way to while away a morning in the sun ( hopefully ! ) and take in all the local atmosphere of one of the world's great cities .

So come and enjoy a stay in what can only be described as 'The Best of British' .

This is a charming, well-located and well-maintained small 2 bedroom home.

  • 5 of 5

We are a married couple who have visited London on multiple occasions. We decided to try renting a home instead of a hotel room this time. We were not disappointed. Property is close to Victoria underground station, Sloane Square and South Kensington shopping and a walkable 35 minutes to the West-End if you are catching a play or musical. We’d recommend this place.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in London and at this property. Very easy to launch from and lovely to come home to this fantastic neighborhood and this comfortable house. The added feature of having the owners driver pick us up from the airport was very appreciated and added to the whole experience.

Charming House - Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Three ladies on a girls' trip enjoyed this perfect central Mews House for a week. We could not have asked for a better location, well appointed and charming house. A quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of so much - local restaurants and shops, Victoria tube, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner and so much more. We truly felt like locals for 7 days!

Ted the owner's driver picked us up from the airport and transported us to the house, what a wonderful service after a long transatlantic flight. Ted was full of useful and interesting information and gave us a tour of the neighborhood so we could get our bearings ahead of time.

The house has everything one would need away from home, with both en-suite bathrooms having been very recently remodeled to a high standard.

There was indeed construction at the house next door, but as we were out all day it did not bother us at all, but if one had young children this may be something to consider.

Would most definitely recommend this lovely Belgravia property and we hope to return!

graduation gift for daughter

  • 5 of 5

frequent user of VRBO and I have to say this is one of my favorite places I have stayed. the owners were great on meeting us and arranging transportation from airport. great location. this was a trip that I brought my daughter and her boyfriend for their college graduation. he has never been out of states and I think this rental spoiled him. I would stay here again and highly recommend this rental to anyone thinking of traveling to London. thanks again for making this a great vacation.
