Recent Kensington & Chelsea reviews

  • A lovely place to stay

    "We have rented flats in London often, and this was perhaps the nicest. It is comfortable, very attractive, and has a fully-equipped kitchen for those who, like us, enjoy cooking in. The location is exceptional, with access to just about anything. The major museums are a fifteen-minute walk (and the Saatchi is closer), the Thames is nearby, and (unusual for us in London), there is easy access to a first-rate supermarket. Actually, Kings Road, two blocks or so away, offers just about anything one might need. In addition, Sue and Emily, who manage the rental of the flat, are unusually caring and attentive and a pleasure to work with. This was a wonderful experience for us, and we fully intend to return."

  • Perfection

    "We were greeted warmly by Sophia at the door and introduced to the beautifully maintained apartment. She gave us a succinct but thorough run-through of all the amenities and systems in the flat and the surrounding area. The kitchen was well equipped; the bathroom beautifully appointed with a great shower and the living/dining area warm and comfortable. Access to the internet and free phone calls to UK landlines made our daily planning easy. The flat is in an exceptional location, close to great transportation and many amenities including several grocery stores within a few minutes walk and the busses and tubes are just a couple of minutes away. The flat is situated in a most exclusive area of London with a very short walk to Holland Park, which is a beautiful reprieve from the hustle bustle of town. We enjoyed the shops and the numerous restaurants in the area, including the Abingdon Pub and the lovely Vietnamese restaurant across the street. We didn't have time to try the others - but they looked wonderful. I cannot thank Sophia and Mark enough for the most fabulous stay and the most delightful flat."

  • Great apartment in a great location

    "My family of four (2 adult daughters) stayed at this flat for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The flat isn’t huge, but is more than ample enough to accommodate the family. Each bedroom comfortably held us, with good beds (a pushed together king in one room and a trundle bed in the other) and plenty of closet space to hang things up. The primary bathroom was fine, with a shower over the tub, and the second half-bathroom was a help getting all 4 of us ready in the morning. The kitchen was fully stocked, with a full-size refrigerator, a stove and a dishwasher. There was also ample flatware, silverware and glasses. The kitchen also has a European-style washer/dryer, which got the job done although not quite to American standards (the landlord was kind enough to keep a drying rack in the closet though). The living/dining room was big enough to seat our whole family comfortably, and allow us to watch the World Cup in the evenings. Wireless internet was also provided, and was strong enough to handle all of my family’s various devices concurrently. That was much appreciated. The flat was not air-conditioned, but the London weather was thankfully very accommodating to leaving windows open. An upper floor provided plenty of security, beyond the key to get in the building and well-locked door to the flat. The flat is just off of Kensington High Street which provided easy access to 3 different tube stops. High Street Kensington was closest, but Earl’s Court is just a bit further as is the Holland Park stop. Of course, once you’re in London and on the Tube, you can get ANYWHERE. A Waitrose grocery was just down the block, and we were able to find a number of good pubs and restaurants within a short walk. Kensington Palace and Hyde Park are also fairly close, certainly within walking distance. The photos provided with the listing are very representative of what the flat is like. Communicating with the owner was wonderful. We had a number of emails back and forth with the owner very responsive and truly wanting to help make our visit pleasant. We’re very appreciative of the care we were given. Lastly, while London is obviously an expensive city to visit, we found this property to be a very good value versus an extensive review of other properties. We would highly recommend this property to those considering it!"

  • Spring Break in a wonderful family friendly flat in a perfect location

    "Our three boys, age 14, 12 and 10, loved this rental and as a result, loved this spring break. Jenny the owner was very responsive and knowledgeable. Her property manager met us at the flat and was very nice and attentive. The flat is well appointed, with a wonderful walk out deck overseeing Cromwell Place. All of this plus the BEST neighborhood for families. You have museum row right down the street, Kensington Square with great restaurants and people watching AND a primary tube station right across the street. This area is very diverse, with fabulous French bakeries within 1 minute walking and great ethnic food. Grocery store is also right down the street. And, not to forget, a classic pub right across the street from the flat so you can sit outside with your pint and keep an eye out for the kids. What more could you want?"
