Property description


15 mins by tube to West End. This is a bright and cheerful ground floor 1 bedroom and 1 living room flat, sharing a nice private patio and garden with the next door flat.
It is situated in a lovely Victorian building and is furnished and fitted out to a high standard with a double bedroom and a living/dining room incorporating an open-plan kitchen. There is a small European-size shower in a small washroom positioned between the 2 main rooms so that it can be entered from either room.
If you want to visit London, this is a warm, cosy, safe place to stay.


The apartment has a high-quality mobile/cell phone signal booster with roof aerial to enhance reception and prevent cut-offs.
Wifi is provided with office quality connection. Both services are free.


Although older children are welcome we regret we do not accept children under 10 years of age. One child sharing the apartment with one adult only, goes free.
If there are 2 adults, each child of 13 or younger is charged at £10 per night. From 14, children are charged at £20 per night.


Please refer to the rate card in this listing. The rates quoted are for up to 2 adults. Additional adults are charged £20 per night.


There is a high quality king-size bed in the bedroom that can be split into twins if necessary, and a good quality double sofa-bed in the main living room.
The sofa-bed is slightly smaller than a standard British double bed. A standard double bed is 54 inches (135 cms) wide. But our sofa-bed is only 45 inches (115 cms) wide. Please ensure other members of your group are aware of these details.
All new, with cotton sheets and top-quality bedding.


The shower is a small Euoropean sized cubicle. The entrance door is a mere 40cms wide (=16inches) and the inside measures only 70cms ( =2ft.4 inches), so make sure your waistline can manage these small sizes. Europeans are slim!


Only three minutes around the corner to Willesden Green tube station, which is on the famous Jubilee line, zone 2, which means it is just 15 mins to the West End in Central London (Bond St/Oxford St). Trains run all day at a very high frequency with arrivals every 2 or 3 minutes.


The flat is just off the high street, where there is a Sainsbury supermarket, lovely pub/restaurant, Costa coffee bar, Italian and Indian restaurants including many more restaurants and cafes nearby. There is of course a typical English fish-and-chip shop as well, very nearby. Just around the corner there is also a handy 24 hour supermarket open 7 days a week.


There is a Nat West Bank just round the corner; a Lloyds, Barclays and HSBC bank also nearby. There are plenty of shops in the high street and also two chemists. Gladstone Park, only a 10-15 minute walk away, has been awarded the coveted Green Flag Award.


For your arrival we provide fresh towels, fresh bed linen, duvets, sheets, covers and pillows. All bills are included with high-speed, continuous, good connection to our Wi-Fi and also a strong, reliable cellnet/mobile phone connection - often lacking in cheaper apartments in the London suburbs!
Street parking is available: I can provide virtual Residents Parking permits, £2 per day, with your first day free of charge.


On arrival you will find a nice welcome pack so you will have some basic food supplies saving you having to shop for things such as cooking oil, salt, sugar, milk, tea, coffee, pasta and pasta sauce, and 2 small packs of cereal for breakfast next morning.


This is open plan in the living room and is not in the bedroom, like so many other flats! Apart from the usual things like a cooker, a large fridge and microwave oven, there is a kettle, a cafetiere, an iron and a nice fat cat, no I was joking! There´s no cat.


A deposit of £200 in cash upon arrival will be required against damage or missing items from the property, repayable on your departure. If it helps, you can pay with US$ or Euros, but the rest must be paid in Pounds Sterling for the cleaning charge, mentioned next.


The cleaning and laundry charge is £40 if only the double bed was used. If the sofa-bed was used as well, there is an additional laundry charge of £20, making a total of £60. This is payable upon your departure.


Check-in is after 12pm, but before 7pm.
Check-out is before 10am.
These times can vary by prior arrangement.

A very late check-in after 10pm is not available, as neither I nor my assistants live at the property. We understand that flight delays can result in a very late arrival at the airport; in such cases we cannot give you access to the apartment until the next morning after 9am. We can only suggest you stay at a reasonably priced hotel near the airport for the night at your expense and try to recover the cost from the airline or your insurers.


Guests are required to sign a holiday letting agreement on arrival specifying special terms including the identity of your host, being a limited company by the name of Grosvenor Gardens Holiday Lets Ltd., and insurance in the event of personal injury. Full details available upon request.


Non smoking and no pets, sorry. This is a quiet and peaceful place, so a few friends over for a drink is OK. Friends or family staying over will be charged the going rate per night.

The area is unusually leafy and quiet for Central London, with a lovely pub /restaurant across the road and a 24-hour ethnic food supermarket around the corner. The flat is only 3 minutes walk from Willesden Green station which is in Zone 2 of the London Underground system, which means Bond Street/Oxford Street is a mere 15 minutes away. Trains run every 2 minutes!

Around the corner there is a very popular Italian restaurant, an Indian restaurant, 'Spice', and a handy chemist shop and launderette. Also a useful Bank with an ATM across the road from the station.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1989

About: School: London, England Work: Retired lawyer About: I have been renting out rooms and flats in London for 25 years but now I am retired I have a little more time to be more of a host than a 'landlord' and like to make sure my guests are comfortable and have what they need. I don't offer luxury accommodation - that's in Mayfair and costs a lot more - but I can offer my friendship and guidance whilst you are over here. I'm a born and bred Londoner after all.

Why Brent:
Although this apartment is just inside the central core of the city, it is very convenient and quick to get to the West End (the central shopping district) from the house, being a mere 3 minutes walk to the train station, where fast commuter trains arrive every 2 minutes. It takes 15 minutes to arrive at Bond Street tube station. This is a high quality apartment, as can be seen from the photos. The internet wifi and cell phone connections are reliable and fast. Finally, the beds are top quality, and very comfortable. This is a 'Chelsea' apartment in Willesden Green! A safe and very quiet area.
