          • The master bedroom has been beautifully furnished with a top quality king size brass bed and excellent mattress. We even provide goose-down pillows for your total sleeping comfort. Non-allergenic pillows are available. There is a warm duvet, or quilt, or both! The room has a spacious wardrobe, two bedside tables, with bedside lamps, and a chair, and there's a pretty window looking out onto our quiet residential street. The second bedroom is small, we admit, as we've put in a good zip and link bed so that it can be a queen-size or two singles. However, because the room is long and narrow the beds don't part by much so it's best to leave it as a queen size double. However, in the longer part of the room there is plenty of space for a wardrobe, and place to put your things. Bedrooms are on the second floor, living rooms on first floor....moreless

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          The apartment is tucked away in a beautiful 200-year-old residential street in upmarket Marylebone village. It’s a quiet, friendly and very safe area. This is the perfect combination of a pretty location, with history all around you, which is truly in the heart of central London.

                          There are food shops and supermarkets within a few minutes of the apartment, and numerous restaurants and cafe's to choose from. It's also just around the corner from Madame Tussauds and the Sherlock Holmes museum (at 221b Baker Street of course!).

                          Marylebone is a very special residential district which has an atmosphere all of its own. The reason is the beautiful Georgian architecture, 200+ years old, which makes the streets very attractive...and so very upmarket. Yet this lovely district is also within walking distance of most of the main tourist sites (see below) And if you're not a keen walker then there are two tube stations - Marylebone tube is just 3 minutes' walk away and Baker Street tube (a main 'hub' station) is just 4 minutes' walk. You can reach all the tourist sites easily from either of these tube stations and most are just within two or three stops.

                          CLOSE TO TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

                          Our London apartment has a brilliant location, close to many tourist sites in London, and will appeal to all types of visitors – families, couples, shoppers, Shakespeare fans, lovers of good food, cricket followers, and of course, Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: I run this apartment with the help of my husband and I think we make a very good team. We are both professional people, who ran our own companies before, but now we are semi retired. We were both born in England, and now live close to London, so we're on hand for any queries and help guests may have or need. My husband has an expert knowledge of English history, and has specialised in the history and sights of London, so he's full of ideas for places to go and things to do. He's also really good for tips on things like how to beat the queues! I'm the organiser, the one who makes sure the flat is perfect for guests and that they are always met on time. I've always been a very good organiser (even though I say it myself) and our guests have always been really complimentary about the flat...which always gives me a glow.

                          Why the Owner Chose Westminster:
                          At first we lived there ourselves, because we ran our separate companies in Marylebone. Then we both semi-retired from our companies, so now we rent the flat to guests. We always loved the flat. It's laid out like a small house, with the living rooms and kitchen downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs. Then there's the roof terrace which is really stunning. It's also very cosy, with a ducted air system which puts warm air in all the rooms in winter and cool air everywhere in summer, Having lived there I can vouch for its efficiency.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          - incredible location, in the heart of central London and easy to reach - close to two Tube stations - Marylebone and Baker Street - pretty street which is very quiet - safe upmarket neighbourhood - loads of space in the apartment - really comfortable high-quality beds and bedding - well equipped with the right number of everything - cutlery, glasses, crockery etc - has a washing machine, tumble dryer and a dishwasher - has a large roof terrace with dining table, as well as a dining table inside
