I come from a back-ground in the hospitality industry having designed and refurbished luxury hotels around the world over now nearly 25 years in the business. I love my job in Interior Design - to me it is not a job but a pleasure.
My ethos with my own property portfolio is to give my clients the same level of comfort and luxury enjoyed in the good hotels but in the more homely environment of a self-catering apartment. This apartment is stylish, clean and comfortable and I aim to provide everything you could possibly need. I want you to love the place, tell your friends and for them to tell their friends and spread the word.
I hope that you will feel that we have pushed the margins to give you more than you expected and enjoy every minute of your holiday.
Caroline Greengrow purchased this apartment in 1994
This property was originally my home in my twenties but then came the large family and much living and travelling abroad.
I came to notice that many holiday rentals can be sparse in furniture and comfort which is not something I personally enjoy when I am on holiday, so I was determined in changing this apartment to a holiday rental, it would be anything but.
I want you to feel that you will come and enjoy this property if you want a little bit more than a place to rest your head at night after a busy day out in London. I want you to be comfortable and feel well rested and looked after on your return home, feeling that all your needs were catered for and we thought of every detail.
The amazing location of this property gives you the perfect balance of proximity to Central London but in a leafy suburb where the birds sing in the trees when you get home from a crazy day sight-seeing. There are not many places that can say the same, or offer our amazing garden for your enjoyment when spending some quiet time at home.
This is a lovely location because you really feel like you are in a quiet leafy suburb and yet you are a 5 minute walk from the station that will take you in 4 stops to Bond Street and the centre of everything that London has to offer!
People never cease to be amazed at how well-located it is, don't be fooled by the fact that it lists in the automated system on this site as near Wembley because it is closer to Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus than there!
The garden here in the summer is amazing. You can 'Wow' yourself with sight-seeing in the city during the day and come back for a lovely BBQ in the evening. A garden this size in Central London is very rare, please enjoy and make the most of it!
Harry Potter World is now a short train ride or a car drive from here so you can enjoy a mixed variety of touristy pursuits and Wembley is close too for sport and music events. The far end of the Jubilee line will also take you directly to the O2 Venue so you can sit on the train from Kilburn all the way to there without getting off once!
It is also very close to Paddington Station where the Heathrow Express comes in, so once you are off the train from the airport, a 10 minute Taxi drive will have you at the door!
The many parks close by: Queens Park, Hampstead Heath, Regents Park, Gladstone Park, make it a lovely place for summer walks also, as well as having all the wealth of the excitement of London at your fingertips!
Your place was very nice and
I would recommend it to friends who are visiting
The UK. Thanks again for everything.
It was a nice place, very enjoyable neighborhood. New Years Eve was a little loud with fire works. The bedrooms were pleasant. The water pressure was pretty light. The bathrooms had a fan that ran for 15 minutes after the lights turned off, which was a bit disturbing for night time bathroom visitors!!!!
We liked the neighborhood, bars and restaurants were good. The North London Tavern was a favorite for the group of 6.
We would come back to this location again! Thank you very much for sharing your property with us.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The flat is located convenient to the tube, (Kilburn) groceries and some good restaurants. Upon arrival, hungry and tired we ventured out to Ariana II and on Christmas Day we had a warm welcome at MezzoRoma. Both are a short walk away. The flat was very clean, well provisioned and comfortable for our family of 5. Caroline was responsive and easy to work with. Very happy we found this flat and recommend highly.
Overall our stay was very nice. The flat is on a quiet street, and is very close ( 5 min walk) to the Kilburn tube station. The flat itself is in nice condition, and we would recommend anyone to stay here. The microwave does overheat, and stops working until it cools down, but that was the only issue we had. Very lovely place to stay!
It was exactly as advertised and worked out wonderfully for us. No hesitation at all in recommending it to anyone
The first impression was good and plenty big enough for 6 persons. There are a few bits that need attention, like the main bathroom could do with finishing off, the little front bedroom blind needs attention and the property gate was a little difficult to close.
The apartment as a modern well equipped kitchen and is more than comfortable with trendy furniture and plenty of it! And very clean. The garden was a super bonus and the transport links into London were second to none-- fab location.
Great leaflets for things to do and super instructions for how to use equipment.
The property is in a super area and we would defiantly recommend it.
We were three couples who rented this flat for four days in London. The flat is very conveniently located to the Jubilee Line on the Tube and to a variety of food shops and restaurants. The neighborhood was very nice and felt very safe. The flat itself was super clean and had all the items we needed for a comfortable stay. The owner's communications were very polite and easy to understand. Booking was a breeze as well. We definitely recommend this flat to anyone looking for a clean, safe and comfy stay with easy access to all of London.
One of the three bedrooms is rather small and there is a lot of "walking around noise" from the tenants above - neither of these were a concern to us as we weren't in the apartment much except to sleep and the noises stopped early. We actually met the folks from upstairs and they were friendly and welcoming so no issues with them at all.
Anyone looking for a flat to rent ought to think about selecting this one. I can't imagine you'd find any reason to not completely enjoy your stay!
This Apartment is on a wonderfully quiet tree lined street in a leafy suburb of London.This area is more like a village than you would think being so close to the heart of London.Transport links are great wherever you want to travel. The Tube station is a very short walk (Kilburn Jubilee Line - Straight to Bond Street in Central London (4 Stops), a straight journey on one line to Stratford City and the 02 Venue and very convenient for anywhere you want to go. The start of the M1 motorway is 4kms away. This is the perfect apartment for families as young children will love the garden and BBQ's in good weather are a delight for all! Make the most of the garden if you can, gardens the size of this one are very rare in London so you have Central London on your doorstep as well as a lovely garden - the very best of both worlds!
The local High Street - Kilburn High Road, has a Sainsburys walking distance and has late night shops and many restaurants,Bars,Pubs and Cafes. West Hampstead (2Km) is full of lovely eateries and bars too. Hampstead itself (2 miles) is a wonderful village in the heart of London, with all the shops, restaurants, bars etc etc you could ever wish to find and right next to the lovely Hampstead Heath which is a gorgeous green parkland for kite flying, picnics, walks, and amazing views over London. This glamorous part of London is the home of many famous people so it is not unusual to pass Gwyneth Paltrow or Chris Martin out for a stroll on Primrose Hill which is also close and the views of London are amazing there as well. Notting Hill is also a short drive by car and Queens Park is walking distance and a lovely place for young children to enjoy the park and play facilities.
This area is close to many other wonderful areas: Just a short journey to Regents Park (London Zoo),Highgate, Hampstead, Notting Hill, Edgeware Road, Primrose Hill, Camden Market, Westfield Shopping Centre, Kensington, Knightsbridge, Oxford Street to name a few. Wembley Stadium if you have any planned trips there is only 4 stops on the train going Northwards so the location is perfect for so many different plans you may have.
For somewhere lovely to stay in London,this is the place to be! Enjoy the lovely garden in a quiet part of town away from busy streets further into town, yet close to everything!
Other Activities: Hampstead Heath, Queens Park, Regents Park, Tricycle Theatre, Camden Arts Centre, O2 Centre (Cinema and Restaurants) Finchley Road, Screen on the Hill and Screen on the Green Cinemas, Saatchi Gallery, Lords Cricket Ground, Wembley Stadium and many others. If you fancy a little amble on the Underground, you can sit on the train all the way from Kilburn Station to Westfield Shopping Centre at Stratford City and happily pass away many an hour in there!
Golf: Hampstead Golf Course is a great course and only 5 kms away. There are many golf Academys in the area - the best is probably the Holland Park Golf Academy which is only 3 kms away!
Head into the centre of London and you will have everything you have ever dreamt of at your fingertips. A four station stop from Kilburn (500m down the road) on the Jubilee Line will take you to Bond Street and from there you can walk to many different places to enjoy the food, the shopping and the ambiance of London. Regents Street is worth a slow stroll to enjoy the wonderful Libertys building (and the shop as well), Hamley's, The Apple Store and many others. Round the back of Libertys is Carnaby Street which is full of fun trendy shops and down towards Piccadilly Circus (M and M World and the Trocadero Centre), is Shaftesbury Avenue (all the theatres around here), Covent Garden, Soho, Chinatown and Leicester Square. For sightseeing in the centre don't forget to check out Buckingham Palace, Pall Mall, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Harrods, Selfridges, Princess Diana Memorial, Serpentine Gallery, Chelsea, Kings Road..........the list is almost endless.
There is so much to enjoy in London it is hard to give you a flavour of all that is available but whatever you enjoy is here. Museums such as: The V & A, The Science, Imperial War, Natural History, Geffrye, The Wallace Collection, are all worth a visit and so are the many shows on at the moment: Matilda, Stomp, Les Miserables, The Lion King are some of the top ones at the moment and a fantastic experience.
You will never run out of things to do in London and if you do, give us a ring, we will fill you full of new ideas!
As an aside, if you are tempted to drive to come here but perhaps may not want to use your car for the rest of your stay, there is a wonderful website (independent of here) called www.parkatmyhouse.co.uk. You can park your car at a close location for the duration of your stay and need not worry about it again!
If you fancy getting out of town for the day, a short train ride away from London will take you to the new Harry Potter World in Watford for HP fans
