About Fabio Leiva

Fellow Colombian who moved to London in 1996 and make it home. Used mainly by academics and scholars in town.

Fabio Leiva purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Fabio Leiva chose Kensington and Chelsea

Earls Court is a great area in Kensington which I am very familiar with. I would love transmitting to my guest the desire to explore this great cosmopolitan area whilst enjoying the comfort of a safe and modern place where all facilities are to the guest's disposition.

What makes this apartment unique

Great location at just a stone's throw away from the station connecting anywhere in the city.

I like the late night facilities and abundant selection of restaurants to cater for in the area.

A quiet space facing the rear of the building and overlooking the neighbour's gardens.

The modern apartment flooded with natural light and fully equipped with comfortable furnishing will offer a great place to relax after your long days out in town. I particularly believe this apartment is ideal for large families with kids or gorps of friends -four max - where the benefits of having the whole apartment outweigh those of a hotel.

No Hot Water, owner did not refund any portion of stay

  • 1 of 5

Property was nice but there was no hot water for over 2/3 of our stay. Owner said he would refund one night but never would unless I provided my personal bank account. I do not provide those details to strangers. I spent countless hours and emails and the owner never provided a refund.

Clean, well-equipped apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The location directly across the street from the Earl's Court tube stop was perfect - lots of great restaurants in the neighborhood. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The apartment was quiet as well because it is located at the back of the building. The landlord was easily reachable by text. I would highly recommend.

Great apartment for two couples

  • 5 of 5

Great location, right across street from tube station for District and Piccadilly lines. The apartment is new and comfortable for two couples. The couch bed was comfortable and doors provide privacy for each couple. The washing machine is a plus for a longer stay. Earl's Court has many amenities, plus great connections to all of London.

Quiet and Beautiful apartment ideally located across the street from London Underground station

  • 5 of 5

We had a FANTASTIC time in this lovely apartment and would recommend it to anyone traveling to London especially if you are good with taking the underground into London. Up two flights of stairs (no lift) and in the rear of the building, the apartment has loads of light from the windows that look out onto the roofs and patios of adjoining buildings. My family of 4 (parents plus 2 teenage daughters) stayed for a full week. Exactly as pictured, and very clean, the owner, Fabio, met with us promptly and showed us around the apartment with information concerning WiFi (free and essential for us all), TV (with Netflix), nearby restaurants, and markets. Grocery stores, wine shops, chemist, bank/atm and pubs all within a block of the apartment. Right out of the front door it was easy to catch a cab, tube, or bus and we felt perfectly safe. For the 4 of us, Uber cost about 9 Pounds English Sterling to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards - less than underground. Simply GREAT! Thanks Fabio!

Es un alojamiento muy comodo, agradable, moderno y estaba en muy buenas condiciones de limpieza. Los dueños son muy amables, estuvieron atentos a todos nuestros requerimientos para que nuestra estadia sea de lo mejor!!! Nos facilitaron guardar el equipaje hasta el momento de partir . Flavio fue muy amable en reservarnos un taxi para que nos lleve al aeropuerto. Volveríamos a alojarnos en el mismo lugar. Esra cerca de todo lo necesario para pasar lindas vacaciones... habia muchos comercios, mercados , restaurantes, farmacias, y la ubicacion frente al metro tambien favorece muchisimo. La zona es muy linda!!! Muchas gracias Favio y Yolanda !!!

The location for London is the very best.

  • 5 of 5

Fabio was very accommodating and made us feel welcome. When I return I would like to stay here again. Getting from Heathrow is a snap. A straight shot to the apartment. It could not be easier. And great supermarkets all close by. A favorite is Tesco. Earl's Court tube is about 1/2 block away.

Besides its placement in one of the most well-known neighbourhoods - and not far from London's centre - you'll stay close to several famous sites, such as Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Science Museum all free, not to mention the shopping districts at Kings Road and Harrods in Knightbridge.

Open areas of woodland are located just a short walk away with Holland Park offering 22.5 hectares of gardens, children’s play facilities, sports areas, a cafeteria and large areas of woodland abundant with wildlife, a great place to keep kids entertained. Contained within the park is the beautiful Kyoto Garden; a Japanese garden donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991.

The river Thames is within easy reach where its promenade and Thames path will take you through some of the most picturesque sights as well as some of the best pubs and restaurants in town.
