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

Earls Court is a great area in Kensington which I am very familiar with. I love transmitting to my guest the desire to explore this great neighbourhood whilst enjoying this great cosmopolita city of London. The apartment is a great secluded hide out to return after a long day out and unwind with its clever layout where all the modern features of a modern apartment 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.

A Real Gem, Location, Location, Location...

  • 5 of 5

As has been written the location of this apartment is a strong point in a couple of ways: Just across the street from the Earl's Court Underground Station makes it very convenient to reach the West End theatre as well as other major tourist spots. And the apartment is very quiet-for me it is great to get away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the big city.

Fabio is a gracious host and has great suggestions for dining in the area-which there are a plentiful selection. Minor problems were dealt with quickly.

A couple of suggestions: Yes, the kitchen could be outfitted a bit better. Why no microwave when that is the main way for us tourists to heat up quick and easy meals from M&S or Sainsbury's? As mentioned wine glasses would make evening relaxing a bit more elegant, another floor mat in the bathroom. But these are all small issues in the big scheme of things. You good value and it is a very comfortable place

Great week in London

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great! Our family of four stayed there a week, and it was perfect for us. It is exactly as it looks in the pictures. The location couldn’t be better. It’s across the street from the Earl’s Court Station. We rode the underground, the District line in particular, every day. Very convenient. There are a few small groceries, coffee shops, a bakery, and several restaurants within a few blocks of the apartment. The apartment was clean and just the right size for 2 adults and 2 kids. Even though Earl’s Court Road is very busy, the apartment is very quiet. Fabio was very helpful. We were able to store our luggage early in the apartment on the day we arrived, and he answered our questions very promptly. I highly recommend this property.

Quiet and convenient.

Clean, quiet, couldn't be more convenient to the tube. Great for 2, a little small for more than that.

Perfect location, quiet, spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had great communication with Fabio - We loved the flat and the amenities.

Walk in 2 mn to Earl's Court. Very luminous flat. Close to many grocery stores. COOP has best prices.

The one comment i would make is replacing the bed it 's way too soft. We ended up putting our children in it, and slept on the sofa.

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 with free access, 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.
