The house is located inside the famous Harrods Depository on the banks of the Thames in Barnes, one of London's most exclusive areas. The newly-refurbished house has 5 bedrooms, comfortably accommodating up to 10 people, and features a large designer kitchen with the latest professional appliances (a treat for any chef!), dining area & lounge, living room, and study area, as well as a secluded private garden, and a roof terrace with beautiful views on to the historic development.
Popular with celebrities looking to break away from the spotlight, this is also the perfect retreat for those looking to hold a special event or private meeting, or families who want to experience London as a local, away from the hustle & bustle of the city while being only minutes away from its centre!
Guests will have the full house to themselves, including the private garden and roof terrace. As well as use of everything in the house (e.g. fast WiFi, televisions, Nespresso machine, computer), guests will have access to the leisure centre, which features an indoor heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, sauna and steam room.
Interaction with Guests
Property Manager - Joselle
I am currently travelling and exploring the world, so the Joselle is helping to manage the property. She will be the one to respond to you, meet you upon arrival and look after you during your stay.
We can organise transportation for you to and from the house, as well as making any other travel arrangements throughout your stay.
We understand that many of our guests want to relax, so we try not to disturb you during your stay. But if you have any questions or issues, we are always just a phone call / message away, and are more than happy to help at any time.
And if you have any special requests - such as grocery shopping or even a fantastic private chef who cook up a sensational meal for a special occasion - please just ask! Most requests can be satisfied: we'll certainly do our best!
Barnes is one of London's best kept secrets. It feels like you're in the countryside, even though you are just minutes away from both the airport and Cental London!
The house is located in a gated development with plenty of green recreational areas. Upon passing through the main gates (just after a beautiful domed fountain), you will immediately appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the development, which has direct access on to the banks the Thames (perfect for a morning jog down to Hammersmith or Putney!). All the residents and staff are very friendly: there's a real sense of community here.
There are some lovely local delis, coffee shops, restaurants, a local grocery stors, hairdressers and even nail & beauty salons - all within a 5-minute walking distance of the house.
While Barnes is renowned for being one of the greenest and most peaceful parts of London, once you cross Hammersmith Bridge towards Hammersmith (a short walk from the house), London's famous bars, theatres, nightclubs and great parks such as Holland Park, Hyde Park and Kensington palace are only about 15-20 minutes via local transport.
There is also easy access to other Royal parks such as Richmond Park and Hampton Court, and of course Twickenham Stadium for the rugby, as well as The All England Lawn Tennis Club for Wimbledon. Chelsea and Fulham Football club are also less than 2 miles away.
On exiting the development, you can either take a bus (every 2 mins) over Hammersmith Bridge, from where you have access to 3 different underground (Tube) lines - the District, Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City underground - as well as buses, which go all over London.
The house is located about 25 minutes from Heathrow by taxi (we can organise transportation to and from the airport if required). Or if you're travelling with your own car, there is 1 available car parking space in front of the house.
We are Iliya and Dmitry - two brothers who would be delighted to welcome you to our stunning house! We are currently travelling and exploring the world, so Joselle is helping to manage the property. She will be the one to respond to you, meet you and look after you during your stay.
Barnes is a lovely part of London - minutes away from the city centre, yet it feels as though you're in the countryside. Wake up to the singing of birds and the smell of fresh-cut grass, before crossing Hammersmith Bridge to immerse yourself in the bustle of the one of London's best-kept secrets!
We are passionate about hospitality, and manage a number of real estate properties in London. We have access to some great houses, but take our advice: few are better than this one!
You will be staying in a gated, secure development, with a private leisure centre (gym, heated pool, jacuzzi, sauna & steam room), meeting room, recreational areas, and stunning views of the Thames.
The house itself is one of a limited few, with a private garden and roof terrace, as well as numerous balconies. It has just been refurbished and is simply incomparable to any of the other houses around.
about the house and back to us!
We grew up together, and enjoy playing tennis, watching football, travelling, going out with friends, exploring all that London has to offer, and, of course, spending time with family.
For us, the most exciting thing about about VRBO is meeting people from all corners of the world. Ultimately, our aim is to provide you with a memorable experience - if you're happy, then so are we!
We look forward to welcoming you in London.

Superb value. Everything you'd want for your stay
I stayed in this lovely home with 5 friends. We were all so pleased with the house and it suited us perfectly. The kitchen is such a great space for socialising, the comfy sofas in the first floor sitting room perfect for a quiet couple of hours and we all slept well as it is remarkably quiet for London.
The property was clean and well-maintained, the service provided excellent and I would certainly recommend - we are planning on booking again next year.
We spent 5 days here over new year and the house was very comfortable for 10 guests. Close to public transport yet private and peaceful...perfect London bolthole
We were a party of 9. A family of 5 from California who met up with both sets of the kids grandparents in London for 4 nights. Communication with Joselle was excellent and everything was taken care of easily before the trip so that check in would be simple. That it was!! Joselle arranged transport who picked us up from the airport earlier than booked because we were early and they were efficient....... Everyone was happy with the rooms that they chose.....My son and his girlfriend were spoiled because they got the "penthouse" room with the great views and walk out terrace.....(we were happy because it was one less flight of steps). We spent Christmas Day in London and then came home to make the grand Christmas meal. The kitchen was extremely well equipped so we managed to cook everything beautifully and there were enough pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc.......We had a lovely walk into Barnes Christmas Eve and spent the night in a friendly pub. Each other day we walked along the banks of the Thames, across the Hammersmith bridge to the nearby underground. Very pleasant walk, but we did have unseasonable warm weather. Not sure how the walk would be in the rain!!!! There was a small supermarket 2 minutes walk away for anything we forgot. All in all, we had a great time in this exclusive house and its complex. Very upscale - take a look at the makes of the cars in the car park. Very safe - we had no problems with letting the teenagers and more importantly the "grand-parents" wander around on their own. We really could not have found anywhere better.... Book this place, you will not be disappointed.
We had a great stay here. The house was large and very comfortable for our family group of my sister and me, and our young adult kids. Lots of room, and beds. Easy walk to the subway, and we easily connected to everywhere we wanted to go. Especially easy to get to and from Heathrow, since it's on the same subway line, and not far. A few nice pubs not far (kids liked that!). We didn't swim, but my nephew used the gym and said it was fine. Highly recommend this house.
