As an interior designer, I am driven to make my home beautiful and comfortable. I love traveling and love to discover new ideas and get inspirations and experience other cultures.

After living in 5 different countries for 12 years, I was so tired of moving around. I decided to settle in London, in 2010 I bought this apartment which was in very bad condition, I accommodated my beloved furniture, beautiful collected decor from around the world. Then after only 3 months living in this loving home, I meet the man of my life, he was very impressed with my beautiful and cozy home, but at the end insist that I moved to his house in the countryside to start our new family together.

Truly hope you find your comfort and love in this beautiful home.

Zoe purchased this townhome in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

My entire family enjoyed the stay at the apartment thoroughly. The apartment is well equipped with all the necessary items including a wii console + games. The location is excellent with a 24/7 Tesco, West Kensington Tube station and several restaurants within 10min walking distance. The neighbourhood, though quiet, comprises of several friendly families. The host, Zoe Huang, is un-doubtly one of the friendliest host I have came across and she is constantly in touch and ensuring that things are going well for me and my family throughout our stay. Highly recommended!

Great Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

I am sorry to be writing this review so late. The year has gotten away from me! We had a great time staying in this flat. It was our first stop on our European vacation and it was a great place to spread out in while dealing with jet lag. We texted Zoe when we got on the tube at Heathrow and she was at the flat when got there. We loved how close it is to a great tube line that is convenient for many popular attractions. We also enjoyed how convenient the grocery store was for picking up food on our way home from sightseeing. The flat is comfortable, pleasant and clean. Zoe was very good to us. I would definitely stay in this flat again.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three kids (12, 14 and 16) for a week, and it was exactly what we wanted. There was plenty of room to spread out, a washer and dryer, three bedrooms, and multiple bathrooms. We took the tube everywhere, and it was a short walk to the Kensington West station. Between the apartment and the station there were convenient grocery stores, pubs and carry out pizza. Zoe was great with communication, and we were met at the apartment upon our arrival. I would recommend to anyone!

Comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

L'abitazione è molto confortevole, ben arredata ed equipaggiata.

Qualche particolare potrebbe essere sistemato (il calorifero nella stanzetta singola non funzionava bene, il portone d'ingresso è vecchio, ci sono dei punti da stuccare sulle pareti), ma sono particolari secondari (a parte quello del calorifero, perché la stanzetta era piuttosto fredda).

L'appartamento si sviluppa su due piani e le scale sono strette, per cui non è adatto a persone anziane o con bambini piccoli e passeggini.

Le due camere matrimoniali sono molto spaziose e lo è anche il soggiorno-cucina.

Noi eravamo 6 adulti e ci siamo stati bene.

La pulizia è buona e, cosa molto importante per chi soffre di allergie, i pavimenti sono di legno e non con la moquette.

La zona è tranquilla e abbiamo dormito benissimo.

L'unica cosa che ci ha creato un po' di disagio è stato che una sera è andata in blocco la caldaia e non riuscivamo a contattare la proprietaria.

La mattina dopo abbiamo chiamato la housekeeper, Martha che ha avvisato Zoe, la quale ha provveduto rapidamente a far sistemare il problema in giornata..

Stranamente, mancano le tovaglie: ci siamo arrangiati comprando i tovaglioli e usandoli anche come tovagliette.

In ogni caso, consiglio questa proprietà, anche per il buon rapporto qualità-prezzo.

Warm, bright and comfortable for a bigger family

  • 5 of 5

The apartment felt like home, in a quiet neighborhood close to tube, trains, museums, market and restaurants. There was plenty of space to accommodate our family of 6. The apartment was well stocked with dishes, seasonings, and basic supplies. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely return.
