About the property

Interior designed 2 double bedroom raised ground floor flat. Close to tubes.

This is a very bright and airy 2 bedroom flat. On the raised ground floor of an imposing terraced house, the flat has high ceilings and large windows. It offers 2 double bedrooms (one with queen sized bed and the other a small double) and a modern shower room. It has an extremely well equipped open plan kitchen/living room, which has an everyday use comfortable sofa bed for an extra short term guest. It is beautifully presented and very well located. Clean and quiet. I think It is really suitable for 2 to 4 people, as both the beds and the sofa bed are doubles, NOT twins, so the beds do need to be shared.(there is no charge if the 4th person prefers to use the sofa bed). The flat is a wonderful comfortable modern apartment for this number, but at 4+, it is a bit tight for space, so I would say only suitable for very short stays for larger groups.

It is conveniently situated within easy walking distance of various tube lines,(Piccadilly, metropolitan, circle, hammersmith and city) and is within striking distance of the M4 and Heathrow airport. On my personal site you will find links to a cab company which does airport pick up and drop off (£36 for collection, £26 for drop off), and for those driving, a link to car parking.

There is a lovely village feel to the avenue,sitting in the Brackenbury Village area of London, with a small selection of quality restaurants a short walk down the road, as well as a Deli, and local convenience stores for groceries. The Grove Bar and Restaurant offers a 15% discount off its A La Carte menu to guests of the apartment.(vouchers in the Welcome Folder.)

The Hammersmith Apollo, the Westfield shopping center and the Shepherds Bush Empire are all close by, as well as The Vue cinema.

There is a £50 surcharge for use of the sofa bed for parties of more than 4 people.

If the apartment is empty we are happy to negotiate discounts for last minute bookings, and discounts for one couple.

There is also a £60 end of stay cleaning charge, to be included in balance of payment.

£200 damages deposit payable which can be a Euro or Sterling cheque.

I am able to accept payment by card or bank transfer.

We ask 25% of total rental fee to secure dates, with the balance payable 4 weeks before arrival.

About Darian Day

I am mother to two grown up daughters. I grew up in London, but have lived in the Berkshire Downs for the last 20 years or so, bringing up family. I two beautiful rental houses in the South of France and a flat in Portugal....I am building up a little site of privately owned special places to stay throughout Europe. Visit my site, shortstaysat,com

Darian Day purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Darian Day chose London

Having seen my girls through school and on their way into the big wide world, I decided I would really like a little bolt hole in London. I have lived in Chelsea, Chiswick, and Holland Park at different stages of my life, but have unreservably absolutely fallen in love with Hammersmith Grove. It is SO accessible, close to multiple transport links, the bedrooms so peaceful,yet it is so central and I have made friends with local restaurants etc in no time because of the village like atmosphere. Not being able to afford the luxury of a flat just for us, I decided to let it out on a short term basis, so my family and I get to stay in it ourselves when it is empty, but in the meantime the rentals mean it pays for itself !

What makes this apartment unique

The huge windows let in so much light, the flat is bright and airy. It is not a 'home', it is a sexy little London 'pad' always feels like being on holiday in the City, an escape, a treat!

Great apartment and owner

  • 5 of 5

This rental apartment in Hammersmith was perfect for our week in London. The apartment is well appointed and very clean. The size was adequate for a family of 4 with two teenage boys. You will not have much extra room but it was big enough to be comfortable. The location is worth every penny. We walked to the Hammersmith tube stop every day and the district line stops at almost every location you would need. The Tubes Oyster Card payment system is easy to use and makes travel effortless. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. Most of them also deliver if you want. Darian was very helpful and answered emails within minutes most of the time. The only issue we had is that the Wi-Fi was slow and we needed to keep resetting the router to make it work. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark, thank you for the glowing review. I’m so happy you and your family had a great stay in London, and more so that you loved my flat! I’m sorry, and very surprised about the internet issues you encountered.... generally it’s super fast and efficient... I’ve never had any problems in the past so I can only think Sky had a gremlin wandering about over Easter. I am sorry about that. Anyway glad you’re home safe and hope to welcome you to Hammersmith Grove again in the future. Best Darian

Nice flat in a peaceful neighborhood.

Very nice neighborhood with easy Underground access to all the London spots. Mostly residential but a great wine bar just down the street and groceries and restaurants just a bit further away. Overall a very nice place.

A wonderful three days in Hammersmith...

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Hammersmith...just outside the hustle and bustle of central London but located on a lovely tree-lined street, very quiet, a short walk (5 minute) walk from the Hammersmith tube station...with easy access on two tube lines to Paddington, Kew Gardens, and all that central London has to offer. The apartment was well equipped...really everything we could need...and two actual bedrooms (as opposed to some apartments with a couch-bed). Would definitely return.

Very comfortable and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Location is the key here. Hammersmith station is 5 mins and there are a number of reasonably priced places to eat and drink. Caught the World Cup semis at nearby Hops and Poles which was awesome

Flat is very comfy and clean. Would totally stay there again.

We loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very neat, clean and comfortable. All amenities were included, with extras. We were aware of restaurants, laundry facilities and cleaning poducts and procedures. Our only complaint was the spotty internet service, which we related to Darian and she tried to remedy several times. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone. Wonderful apartment!!!

Owner's Response: Wenzl hello! Thank you for the lovely review above... especially given the annoyance of the internet issue. It was, as you know, a fault on the main telephone line .... a one off problem... outside the control of my providers... but I thank you for your patience and help while we got it addressed. It would be great to welcome you to London again should you return. Best Darian.
