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 London

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.

Great location, excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I recently stayed at this apartment while we were visiting London, and really enjoyed our stay. The location is ideal. It's adjacent to the Earl's Court tube station, which gave us easy access all over the city. The apartment was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Fabio was very helpful and friendly. We would happily stay here again the next time we're in London.

30 footsteps from the tube

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 2 week comfortable stay in one of the most convenient places in London. Directly across from Earls' Court tube station, you can get anywhere within London very quickly. Fabio was a gracious and helpful host. This flat will definitely be our choice for future trips.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great location - opposite the underground station with loads of shops and restaurants all around. Situated at the back of a building, so very quiet at night. Very spacious, clean and bright. Tastefully decorated. Full kitchen (although we didnt use it!), large TV, Free Wifi, loads of storage. Underfloor heating very effective (although not working in the bedroom - reported) and a large air conditioner/fan heater in both the lounge area and bedroom were also very effective. No plug in the bathroom sink though, which I did find odd - but not a problem! Fabio (owner), very attentive and spent some time telling us about whats good to do/see and how to go about doing it. There is also a comprehensive information folder kept in the apartment. Need to be aware though that the apartment is on the second floor of a building with no lift, so be careful how much you pack/buy!

All in all, we found it to be a very pleasant, comfortable stay. We would definitely consider doing it again and will also have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family. Thank you Fabio!

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.
