Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 2 bathroom. With garden.

My comfortable and warm flat is the ideal launch pad to explore London. Located in Kensington & Chelsea, it has outstanding transport links; arrive anywhere in London fast with no hassle. The garden offers extra depth and tranquility. Just installed solid oak floor. Enjoy!

Modern, Well Equipped, 3 Bedroom Flat in Central London - Sleeps up to 8. Half a block from Earls Court Tube, Zone 1.

The property itself is a recently modernised lower ground floor flat. Windows are all double glazed. It features a spacious master bedroom with a convenient en-suite shower room and a second double bedroom. We have also recently converted utility room to provide a quirky and cosy little single bedroom, ideal for a single guest or perhaps one of the kids! We also provide a 3-seater sofa-bed in the lounge, allowing the flat to sleep 2 extra if needs-be. The main bathroom is also recently refurbished, with both bath and shower available.

The main living area is a large open plan space, featuring a fully equipped, modern kitchen with washing machine, dining table & chairs, and a comfortable lounge area with sofas and television.

Outside is a lovely intimate garden (70 square meters), with table, chairs, parasol and even a barbecue - ideal for relaxing at the end of a long day in the city (provided the British weather behaves!). There are outdoor electrical sockets and lights in the garden.

Wifi broadband internet is also provided. Please note neither the flat nor garden is wheelchair accessible.

The area is well lit and well covered by CCTV. Walking alone late at night is commonplace.

The flat is located on a main road so you can expect some noise in the front bedrooms. We have mitigated this with double glazing in the small bedroom and triple glazing in the master bedroom. You soon become accustomed to the hustle and bustle of London life.

William is my site manager and he helps with the day to day running. He is very open and is ready and willing to answer your questions during your stay.

About Alex

I have spent many years in London and now spend my time between Lima, Peru and London. I am a stay-at-home Dad/entrepreneur.

I am married to a Peruvian and have two young children.

I like visiting new places and following cultural pursuits.

I treat others how I myself would expect to be treated. I offer guests at my flat what I would expect to be offered.

Why Alex chose Kensington and Chelsea

Earls Court is on the doorstep of quintissential Kensington yet still at reasonable prices. You can walk to the heart of Kensington and Chelsea in 15 mins. Classic London pubs are to hand as are many restaurants. Supermarkets and Pharmacies are 5 minutes away if you need to pop out or something. The apartment offers a practical, cosy retreat from the bustle of London life.

What makes this apartment unique

My favourite thing about this property is the fact that I minimise time wasted getting around London. The Tube station is so close and with both District and Picadilly Lines on hand.

In the summer I love the garden as it offers an escape from the hustle and bustle and gives outdoor space for the children to play. We have just installed a solid English Oak floor throughout the flat giving a truly classical feel.

Fantastic location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Alex's place was ideally suited and located for our stay in London. I was there for work, and brought along my boys (10yo) and parents so that we could intersperse some tourism. The layout was perfect for our needs. Boys loved the bunks, and the location of this room in the flat meant that it was quiet (and dark!) so they slept great (and late!). The master BR with ensuite for my parents suited well, and there were sufficient ways of darkening and quieting the room to counter the long summer days and the street noise. The 3rd bedroom is tucked away at the entrance and though cozy, allowed plenty of room for me and my things, and I too slept comfortably in the single bed. The main bath was spacious and had a great shower. There were convenient stores for provisions (Tesco express close by, full Tesco not much farther) and the Earls Court metro stop offered many restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The metro station has District, Circle, and Piccadilly lines which meant easy transport from Heathrow (express to Paddington, transfer to Earls Court) and also to my meetings near westminster. The patio allowed us to sip wine in the evening before dinner and again after kids were in bed, and enjoy the amazing weather that we experienced in London. Yes, as other reviewers have said, there is street noise. Don't let this deter you from staying here. Alex and William were very helpful and accommodating esp when I made an error with my reservation and needed to add an extra night - they helped us beyond expectation. I highly recommend!!!

Charming flat in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This flat served our family of 5 very well. The location is the biggest advantage. The Earls Court Tube station is a block away, a bus stop is right outside, and shops, pubs and at least one bank are a block and a half away. There is a Tesco Express only a block away, and a large Tesco only a half mile away. We easily walked to the Kensington High Street in about 10-15 minutes. We often took the bus to get to our destination of the day, and it provided a lot of sightseeing opportunities, and we took the Tube home at night when we were tired and wanted to travel more quickly. The site manager, William, was very sweet and accommodating, and waited up for us when our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 1am. He even brought us a couple bottles of wine and snacks so we could unwind for the night without having to go out to a shop! The flat is decorated in a very charming manner, and there is ample seating on couches and chairs around a dining table. The terrace is lovely, and we breakfasted out there one morning. The water pressure is amazing!

I'll list out my complaints, which are minor, only to give information. There is no A/C, which is stated. Even though the weather was pleasant during our stay, and cool at night, we were a little warm at night. We used the fans. Had the temperature been much warmer, we would have been quite uncomfortable. We could open the windows, but there are no screens so I wasn't comfortable leaving them open after we went to bed. If you do sleep with the windows open, especially in the front bedroom, the city noise is quite loud; this is also stated. It didn't bother us, since we used to live in NYC and actually like the city noises. The towels are rather flimsy, but they are clean and not torn. There are no washcloths provided. The bathrooms are clean, but the smaller bathroom had a lot of mold spores in the corners of the shower. The kitchen also had mold spores in the tile grout. The larger bathroom had a shower/tub, but the curtain didn't wrap around the entire shower, and the water sprayed all over (great water pressure!) so we just decided to stop using it because of the mess. There is no top sheet on the beds. Finally, this is a "garden" flat, remember, so if you have any trouble with stairs, be cautious about staying here. The stairs leading down to the flat are quite steep.

Again, the complaints are really just for informational purposes. I would likely stay here again.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was located in a wonderful location! It was definitely not frequented by tourists so we felt like part of the neighborhood. The flat was perfect for our family of 5. My kids loved the bunk beds & we loved that they had somewhere to hangout after a long day! The traffic was noisy out front but we were well aware of that to begin with & it just felt like we were really in London. We have been 2other times before & stayed in various parts & it was just as noisy. It didn't bother us or my kids at all. The neighborhood was great - just down the road were restaurants, shops & a grocery store. Everything we needed was right there. The tube station was very convenient too with a direct train to Heathrow (very handy with kids & luggage). William, the caretaker, was fantastic. He gave us lots of suggestions on places to eat and was very friendly. Thanks for a great trip!

Comfortable convenient flat

  • 4 of 5

Clean and well stocked flat. Great water pressure for showers and plent of hot water. Sofas a bit worn but fairly comfortable. Noisy busy street at all hours but nothing to be done about that! Steps away from tube and shopping. Overall a very good experience and would stay there again.

Lovely place , enjoyed the patioand so close to Earls court tube ( warwick rd entrance)Needs fan !

  • 4 of 5

Great place great location

Front room noisy - street noise but we wore ear plugs - also weather was warm and due to noise we coukdnt keep the windows open in front so a fan to keep it cooler would be a huge help.

The patio was so nice to make use of and everything was clean and easy to find what we needed !

Great location, but small for 6 people!

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, but apartment a bit small and the street is very loud in the evenings. The special windows help, but if you want any cool air in the evenings of summer or air circulation, not very accommodating in the two front bedrooms especially, because you need to close window for quite and in turn makes it very warm for sleeping in summer. And no fans or air conditioning.Towels and bed linens are a bit worn and would have appreciated face cloth and a top sheet as to warm to cover up with quilt/comforter and also some kitchen towels would be helpful. Also apartment could use a good deep clean, A few spider webs and such and mold spores in the bathrooms which poses an issue for me especially, as I do actually have an allergy and caused nasal and head congestion for me. House manager seemed friendly and accommodating, but never actually came to introduce himself or go over anything. Owner was very attentive thru email prior to our arrival and gave some good suggestions for local establishments and such.

Owner's Response: Good to have some feedback. We have just repainted the flat - so sadly you just missed out! I just stayed in the flat myself and had not been aware of the bathroom problem. The extractor fan has been repaired and the bathroom painted, so should be good as new now. You are the first to have asked for air conditioning and or fans. If I get some more feedback akin to this then certainly fans are an easy fix. We do renew bed linen periodically. Air conditioning is not at all common in London in traditional apartments. The bustling noise of London life is hard to avoid and I do mention this in the description.
