There is a double bed, with plenty of cushions to use during the day as a day bed and at night as a very comfortable bed. The single guest bed can be used as a private area during the day as a sofa, all bedding is on the bed. The furnishings are a combination of contemporary and antique, with fine paintings and some interesting artefacts from around the world. There is WiFi access, TV with over 50 channels, . Washing machine. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, Gordon Ramsay china, wine glasses, serving dishes. Cotton bedding with duvets and towels. Soap, washing powder, washing up liquid, coffee, tea and sugar are all included. There is a travel cot. The beauty of staying here is it will be a home away from home, with an excellent library of books. Sky TV with masses of channels. There is a library of old books, some dusty from my parents and grandparents... The apartment is about 27Sq meters in size. This is my home in London, not part of a hotel group, so experience London like a local. The apartment comes with bed linen and towels. Spare lavatory paper is kept in the chest under the TV.

About Amanda Oliver

I spend my time between the apartment in London and Dorset, where I live in the oldest house in the county. It has a thatched roof and was built in 1500., set in the middle of farm land. So a total contrast

Amanda Oliver purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Amanda Oliver chose Kensington and Chelsea

I bought this apartment for my daughter who was studying in London at the time. I wanted somewhere centrally located with good transport links. Also an area where you can feel safe when walking home late at night.

What makes this apartment unique

A fantastic library of books, collected by my grandparents and parents.

Truly a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this adorable little flat. My daughter and I had plenty of room and it was set up nicely. It had most of the amenities that we needed except maybe a coffee maker but we used the instant hot water kettle (hob) and it worked out very well. We arrived a bit early and we were greeted by Amanda. She allowed us to store our bags until the normal check in time which was wonderful. The flat was only a short walk from the underground so that made it very convenient to get around. There were many restaurants near us if we chose to stay in Chelsea. I felt very safe walking around at night with my daughter. The flat is at basement level so we did have to shut the window at night so it was a bit warm. That's probably the only complaint I have. The only other thing might be the odd English locks which did take a while to get used to.

Overall it was a very nice place to stay. The apartment was clean and well cared for in addition to being in a great location. We had breakfast at the troupedor a couple blocks down and it was excellent. I did have to reach out to the owner and she was very responsive and accommodating. The pictures are exactly like what you will find when you check in. Be sure to buy an Oyster card and be sure to stay here next time you visit London.

Great Rental Property Centrally located in Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough positive things regarding my stay. I was there for one month and it is a perfect spot for anyone who would want to base in London. The location is clean and well maintained and has a modern feel with vaulted ceiling lights and hard word floors that give the whole place and open an airy feel. You have an awesome kitchen and variety in the choice of television stations to view. The Owner and Manager were readily available to answer any questions you have and were prompt in responding to any of your needs. It is within blocks of any entertainment you would want in Chelsea including walking distance from Fullham Broadway and Earls Court, both of which have loads of shops, restaurants, pubs and variety of places to shop for groceries. I would definitely stay there again in future visits to London and would highly recommend to family and friends.

Convenient, Clean, Great Value

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights. The location was outstanding! Close to all transportation! It was our first visit to London, so we spent our time visiting museums, galleries, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey....all the tourist sites. All were easily reached with public transportation, just a short walk from the flat. Kitchen was nicely equipped (even had coffee for we Americans!). Wonderful to have laundry facilities available. My husband is a rather large fellow, so the sofa bed wasn't big enough for two of us. No problem, we just used the additional bed available. The neighborhood is absolutely lovely. Katie, our property manager, was available for a question we had, and very friendly. We had a fabulous time. Not fancy, but a beautiful, convenient location and an excellent price. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice apartment close to tube stop

  • 4 of 5

We were able to find the apartment fairly quickly after getting off the tube. Amanda worked with us to allow us to check in earlier so we could shower and drop our bags since we landed in the morning. The street can be noisy from cars but not anything you can't sleep through. It was a nice place to stay for three people. The washer/dryer is an all in one unit and the condensation dryer is something I was not accustomed to using. It seemed it took about 3 hours for a load to be completely finished. We would stay here again if we ever make it back to London.
