Recent Kensington & Chelsea property reviews

  • Brilliant location in London

    "This is a lovely apartment well situated near public transportation and Portobello Road. It has many interesting architectural features, including a sensational second-floor bedroom with a cathedral ceiling, a well-equipped and laid-out kitchen, and comfortable living room with loads of light all around. To top it all off, there's a small garden out back framed by French doors. The owner was charming and well organized. She warned us about construction going on next door, which was not too much of an issue and mostly our stay was very quiet and pleasant. We had a wonderful week in the apartment and highly recommend it to all."

  • Perfect London Stay!

    "Our family of six (4 adults and 2 children) found Marina's "sunswept loft" to be the perfect home away from home while visiting London. The location of the house was perfect- next to a beautiful park, walking distance to the tube, Portabello Road (and iconic market), and interesting little neighborhood shops and restaurants. The #7 bus stopped right outside our door! The house itself was spacious with plenty of comfortable sleeping room and an open-concept first floor kitchen/dining/living area that was decorated nicely but was easy to relax in. All of the appliances were new and in good working order. The bathrooms were light and spacious and served us well for getting ready in the morning. In fact, the entire house was well ventilated and "sunswept" and even in the warm summer temperatures (80s), it was quite cool with just the occasional use of the fans provided. All in all, we decided that we would stay there again, if we came to London with a group. It was wonderful!"

  • Sisters USA

    "Having lived in England for over six years growing up, my sister and I were eager to make a trip back as a tribute to our parents and to walk down "Memory Lane". This apartment met all of our criteria and more. It had a wonderful traditional English decor and feel that took us back in time. The vase of fresh-cut yellow roses was a welcoming touch. While in a nice, quiet, lovely neighborhood, the apartment was in close walking distance to the Underground Railroad with great access to everywhere, including food markets and restaurants. The kitchen was well-equipped and the bathroom was roomy with a nice, deep, long tub. The Living/Dining area and bedroom were both spacious. A wonderful home-base for a memorable trip!"

  • Loved the location!

    "My family of four spent the last week of March here and loved it. Holly is wonderful--so easy to reserve through Paypal. She met us at the flat and spent time with us acclimating us to it and area. She sent an email midweek to be sure all was fine and she even sent us an email on Saturday to be sure we knew Daylight Savings Time started that night (weeks after the US!). The unit is a basement apartment but still bright during the day. There is no picture of the second bedroom--it is large with a queen bed and a twin with trundle underneath so 6 can sleep very comfortably in the flat. Living room has a door which came in handy when my kids watched a movie late at night--I couldn't hear it from bedroom. Kitchen also had a door to block out washing machine or dishwasher noise. Unit has fully equipped kitchen--I used electric pot to make my coffee every morning. Washer/dryer came in very handy--she now has the manual right there to figure out how to use it. She has a mobile phone you can borrow as well as umbrellas and many guide books. Location is great--Gloucester Road tube station less than 10 minutes away and large Waitrose Grocery at station. The unit is so quiet, you'd never know you were so close to main roads. Many great restaurants in area too as well as bus stops and stop for Hop On and Off Big Bus. We would definitely stay here again!"
