Property description

We live in Florida, this is our London home. We visit it at least once per year. We have come to know this area very well and truly enjoy its many attractions as well as the excellent access to the West End and the major tourist sites.

The flat is bright, cheerful, and spacious. All rooms have large windows. The kitchen and the two bedrooms have a Western exposure. The living room, bathroom and toilet (which are separate rooms) have an Eastern exposure. The large master bedroom has a very comfortable USA king-size bed and ample wardrobe and drawer space. The second bedroom has two large single beds and ample wardrobe space. For the 'fifth' person we use an air mattress in the living room.

The living room has comfortable seating for four people as well as a large 37' flat screen TV (with Freeview and SKY TV), radio, CD/tape player, and a DVD player. Free broadband internet connection (wireless or cable) is available. A printer may be connected to your laptop. International phone calls are free to landlines in many (36) countries. The kitchen is large enough that four people can eat around the table and not impede someone preparing food. It is fully-equipped to service six people.

The flat is located on the second floor (third floor by USA definition) of a picturesque Mansion block built in 1896. It does not have a lift. Access to the stair well to the flat is by a key or by remotely unlocking the door after verifying the caller’s identity via TV cameras. The mansion block is located at the end of a cul-de-sac and road noise is almost non-existent.

West Kensington Underground station is a seven minute walk from the building. It is on the District line and is three stops from the Knightsbridge shopping district and seven stops from Westminster Abbey/Houses of Parliament.

A five minute walk to Hammersmith High Street will give you access to multiple bus routes taking you up Kensington High Street, through Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner into the West End of London.

There are half a dozen restaurants and the same number of 'take outs' that can be reached in under ten minutes. The large, superb Tesco Supermarket is a ten minute walk. There are green-grocers and smaller supermarket shops on the way to the Underground station, which are closer to the flat. There is a dry cleaner, video rental store, liquor store, news-agent, and 3 eating places all within five minutes of the flat.

There is a large multi-screen cinema at the bottom of Kensington High Street - a 12-15 minute walk. For tennis fans, the Queen’s Club tennis facility is a 15 minute walk and Earl’s Court Underground station (a 12 minute walk) offers a direct (six stops) connection to Wimbledon. The flat is less than a 10 minute walk to the Olympia and Earl's Court exhibition halls. Holland Park - peaceful and relaxing - is a 15 minute walk.

If our flat is of interest, please check our calendar for availability. If the first or last day of your visit period is unavailable, we have an arrangement with a local hotel to accommodate you for this night, possibly at no additional cost.
