Great apartment and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Yvonne was so welcoming. She greated us when we arrived and was extremely helpful. The place was homely and in a perfect location for access to the whole of London. It didn’t take long to get use to the transport around there. The number 9 bus which only costs 1.50 pounds takes you right into town. Kensington High street station was a 10 min lovely walk and 2 min walk to Kensington (Olympia) station. We also loved the fact that there was a local shop 2 doors away for essentials! Next time we are in London, we will be staying there. Thank you Yvonne.

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Tiffany, thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in my apartment. Apologies regarding the washing machine/dryer. I will have an engineer come and see what the problem is straight away. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

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.
