Kensington & Chelsea apartment description

Large Beautiful Two Double Bedroom Apartment in charming South Kensington, London. Located in a grand Georgian House on one of the most sought after streets in the area, very quiet and safe. The beautifully maintained building is located in by far one of the most prestigious districts in London.

The west facing living space gives the large living room a very light and airy feel. The recently renovated apartment has a wonderful reception room with high ceilings and antique dark wood furniture. The kitchen with an Italian granite floor includes all the necessary integrated appliances (new dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave/oven, hob, washing machine (including dryer), as well as a toaster, kettle, cutlery, plates, pots/pans, etc). It has a superb master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with a queen sized double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, ideal for families. Both bedrooms have large floor to ceiling fitted closets with lots of hanging space and shelves. The apartment also has a beautiful large marble bathroom with designer Lefroy Brooks bathroom fittings and beautifully scented Baylis & Harding England bathroom toiletries for your stay. The living room has two beautiful sofas and the dining area has a new designer glass dinning table with seating for 6. The apartment has mod cons, including a 32'’ flatscreen TV, Iphone/Ipod speakers, and high-speed wireless internet. We also have a phone for local calls so you don't spend a fortune calling from an international cell/mobile. A fireplace gives the living area a very atmospheric feel. A romantic apartment for couples but also ideal for families.

The apartment is beautifully furnished with large handcrafted antique mirrors, large pillar candles and Fleur de lie period-style designer curtains.

The apartment also has recessed low voltage spot lighting with touch sensitive dimmable controls.

Cranley Gardens is located just a short walk away from the many restaurants, boutiques and bars in South Kensington, attractions such as the V&A, the Natural History Museum, etc and within easy reach at 10mins walk to the green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace.

The apartment is very close to transport links: 5 min walk to the nearest tube/underground and 2 min to the closest bus stop with direct lines to other major attractions.

                                        The property was nice, clean and well furnished. in addition, it is quiet, which a plus for hollydays. the owners were very helpful when needed. The neighborhood is very nice. Good supermakets, pubs et restaurants around. 10 min walks from de metro station. then 10 more minute to the very centre of London. I do recommand this place.

                                        As VRBO owners ourselves, we know what it takes to create a comfortable, home like environment, and Saphira & Tom has achieved that. We have a two week stay, and felt completely at ease. The unit is quiet, with lots of natural light. All of the appliances were in as described, and the gas fireplace is wonderful too. Beds were comfortable as well. The location is ideal with the flat centered between the Gloucester Rd and Kensington South tube stops. We did not take the bus, so we cannot comment on that. Lots of dining and grocery options close by. We would certainly recommend this to anyone asking about it. Not a problem for us, but for others that may have some physical limitations, there are a number of stairs that need to be climbed to get to the flat, so be aware of that. Thank you for making our two weeks here perfect. Tom & Debra

                                        We (3 adults) stayed at this nice and very comfortable apartment for 5 nights. It turned out to be a very good choice of accommodation. The apartment itself is quite spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable. The neighborhood is very peaceful, but near supermarkets (some of them are open 24/7), restaurants, pubs, cafe's etc. The tube has two stations nearby with connection to Heathrow (piccadilly line) and the circle and district lines. The owners, whom we did not actually meet, were very helpful with very good information about the apartment and anything else one may need, and were also available for further assistance when needed. The only reasons I did not rate it 5 stars are the stairs (it is a bit high, although we were informed about it and this was not a surprise), and the sofa in the living/dining room that was not very convenient; However, these two small things do not change the final conclusion: This is a great place. We highly recommend it, and intend to come back on our next visit to London.

                                        Owner response: Thanks so much for your feedback. We have now replaced our L shaped sofa with 2 new sofas, which I hope you would find more comfortable as they are of standard height. We hope to welcome you back on your next trip to London!

                                        Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys age 10,14) recently spent 6 nights at this apartment. I did lots of research on locations, price, suitability, convenience, etc and this apartment fit the bill on all fronts. Tom and Saphira responded quickly and thoroughly from the initial contact, the price was fair, the check in and check out routine were clear and seemless. The apartment was clean, and not full of clutter/wall hangings so I didn't have to worry about my sons damaging anything. Great location, walk to everything, great restaurants. Two notes, not problems: It is a few flights up, stairs only; there wasn't a table where we could all fit to eat together. I have already recommended this apartment; great for families.

                                        COMFY FLAT IN A GREAT LOCATION. My sister and I just spent a week in this South Kensington apartment. We had never been to London and didn't quite know what would be best location for us. Well, this was it! Perfect neighborhood, great restaurants, easy walk to tube and lots of sights including beautiful Hyde Park. The tube is super easy for getting around. The apartment had everything we needed and felt quite roomy. Comfortable beds, good shower, nice kitchen. Wifi worked perfectly. The flat itself is on a nice quiet street with pretty views out the windows. It is a walkup, so strong legs are required, but we got very used to it as the week went on. Check in and check out super smooth. Prompt refund of deposit. Saphira was very helpful. We would stay there again.

The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to London.

                                        In this apartment, we had a really nice week. Even before the start of our trip, but also during the trip Sarah and Thomas were always very helpful and gave us a list of recommended restaurants and supermarkets nearby . The apartment is located in a really nice area. The kitchen had everything you could need. The living room is bright and spacious. We especially liked the open gas fireplace, which was easy to use via remote control and donated a beautiful warmth.

                                        It was our first time in London. We loved it. Great apartment. We had a very comfortable stay. Really enjoyed our time here. Had a bit of trouble figuring out the coffee machine but otherwise perfect stay. The kids had a great time exploring the local area. The Science museum was very close and fun for them. Really an ideally located property. My wife cooked quite a bit as well and the kitchen has everything you need.

                                        What a pretty apartment. It was perfect for our London stay. Firstly, it is in an amazing location. We went to some nice restaurants locally that the owners recommended and we did some shopping too.The two bedrooms were very nice and the beds were comfortable. The living room is big and bright. Also, I loved all the beauty products in the bathroom! Could not recommend it more- will definitely come back on our next trip to London. Jenny

                                        We stayed in this stylish and tastefully furnished apartment for 5 days. We have previously rented apartments around London many times before but this has been the best so far. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and safe with close proximity to everything you might need; restaurants, pubs, tube station, grocery stores. The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with kitchen appliance, toiletries and everything you would need. There were even teabags, sugar, and biscuits which was great after a long journey! In addition it is well maintained, clean and bright with natural light. With Gloucester Road tube station just a few minutes’ walk away, getting to the apartment (especially from the airport) and around the city was easy. There are many attractions around the area that is within 7-10 minutes’ walk away, such as the Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum as well as the Science Museum. If you like a longer walk, Hyde Park and Harrods aren’t too far away either. Alternatively, buses from the Fulham Road/Beaufort Street bus stop that is less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment’s doorstep connect you well to various parts of London. We found Saphira and Tom very accommodating and helpful with regards to making our stay perfect. Well done! Definitely a place we’d be coming back to and would recommend it to our friends for a London getaway; a nice home away from home.
