Comfortable and well located to see the sites of London.

  • 5 of 5

This flat was perfect for our group of four. It is well situated in a relatively quiet neighborhood and allows easy access to public transportation.

Yvonne was very accommodating and pleasant to work with.

The stairs were a bit challenging for heavier luggage but manageable.

Great flat in a great part of London

  • 5 of 5

There is only one Kensington and this apartment is right in the heart of it. My family of four had a terrific long Thanksgiving weekend and would love nothing more than to come back to the flat for a longer visit. Yvonne was particularly welcoming and went out of her way to help us plan our days and nights. The flat is spacious and bright and we loved having the two bathrooms for us and our two children.

Great little flat in Kensington

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised, perfect for our family of four with two teenagers. Convenient with underground station within a 10-15 min walk, and a pub around the corner. The Londis next door was also great for getting daily necessities. The only complaint I have is the washer/dryer combo, which could not dry our clothes without running the cycle 2-3 times.

Convenient and cute

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this property, and it did not disappoint again. The location, while not in central London, is extremely well situated - the bus, tube, and even walking are easy to manage. The flat itself has two nice bathrooms and two bedrooms. The first time I stayed with one other person and this time it was 4 people (adults) total. With 4 people, the space can feel a bit cramped but nothing too bad. I love this property and would recommend to anyone staying in a London. The property manager is also very communicative and friendly - which is very helpful.

A comfortable, well-equipped property in a nice neighborhood in Kensington.

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of a 30-something woman, her 60-something mother and their 60-something female cousin. We found the flat to have everything we needed, from hair dryers to fans and space heaters, an excellent satellite TV/DVD system, plenty of towels, even washcloths and bathmats, and we never ran out of hot water. Yvonne provided more clean bed and bath linens half way through our 2-week stay. The location was very convenient; it was about a 15-minute walk to the High Street Kensington Tube station, less if we caught the bus near the corner of Addison Road. There is a convenience store literally 15 steps from the front door which stays open until 10pm and provided almost everything we needed, even our Oyster cards for the Tube and buses. A larger Waitrose grocery store is on the way to the Tube station, and a fairly large Boots store and a nice Marks & Spencer are within the station. A large Whole Foods Market is just past the Tube station. There are lots of pubs, restaurants and fast food places within a 15- to 20-minute walk of the flat, but the flat's kitchen is equipped with a full-size fridge/freezer, microwave and regular range for meals in as needed, especially handy for breakfast. There is also a small dishwasher and combo washer-dryer for doing laundry, a clothes drying rack, iron and ironing board. There's a large patio/terrace outside the kitchen, but we were so busy being tourists we didn't have much time to enjoy it. We felt quite safe in the flat and everywhere we walked, even coming back from the Tube station or a restaurant at night. One thing to consider about the flat, which is true of many places in England, is the number of steps which you must climb. There is a staircase from the front door up to the "first floor" where the living room/lounge and kitchen are, then another one to the "second floor" where the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are. However, this would only be a problem for someone with mobility issues. There is some outdoor noise from traffic and sirens, but this is London after all; you might well encounter this anywhere in the city (or any city,) even in a pricy hotel. There was no through-the-walls or from-the-floor-above noise. We would definitely stay here again and can highly recommend this flat and Yvonne as a landlady.

Home base while visiting London

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a comfortable home base for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teens). We liked the deck as it gives you extra space if it's not raining (it is London). It was easy access to the bus, underground and overground systems. We were easily able to navigate our way around England from here. Wi-Fi worked well. The fresh bread and croissants and milk and cereal from the store next door came in handy for easy breakfast/snacks. We would stay here again. We highly recommend Pizzicotto on Kensington High St for a delicious, fun dinner. Very family friendly and also good for just adults.
