  • Home Away from Home

    "My husband and I just returned after staying at this London flat for the past week. The flat was amazing; centrally located in the heart of London, mere steps from the tube and absolutely perfect. The accomodations were lovely. Plenty of room, every amenity possible (washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc) and very comfortable. We came to spend a week to visit all the museums we rushed through the last two times we were in London. A 10 minute walk, and were at the V & A, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. A few tube stops away, we were at the National Gallery, the Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, the Wallace Collection, the Cortauld Gallery and the Tate Britain. In the evening, we were just a few tube stops from Covent Garden and all the wonderful musicals. Not only was the flat beautifully decorated, the floor plan would be great for a family with young children or teenagers or two couples with its two bedrooms and two bathrooms. And the bathrooms are totally modern with wonderful "hot" water and terrific water pressure (which is not the case in a lot of places). It was fabulous to have the use of the kitchen to stay in or to enjoy all the restaurants that are close. Love the freezer that made superlative ice cubes for beverages after a day of sights. A lovely "gem" and we hope to stay at the flat when we come back to London next time. There are not enough superlatives to describe this extraordinary flat. Bonnie, the owner, is delightful to correspond with and definitely wants her guests to enjoy her London home. She has this amazing informational packet that is so helpful. As other guests mentioned, Harrod's is nearby and just walking the food halls is a must attraction with its delicious food and tantalizing sights. Plus, where in the world would you get to see a gold plated Ferrari and a crystal encrusted Mercedes parked outside Harrod's if you weren't staying down the street....? We had spectacular weather with minimal cold and no rain in March. The flat was a bit "warm" but cooled with open windows. You could fall asleep quickly and be totally refreshed for another day of fun in London~Frankly, there is no other place to stay in London except this phenomenal property on Basil Street!"

  • Travel Agent's Perspective

    "As a long-term travel agent in the US, I recently worked with the owners of this flat for a one-week stay in London for my clients. They offer several unusual amenities that make this a good fit for anyone looking for flats: First, they have several properties to choose between, so that offers you choices to fit your clients' budget. Second, they include a transfer from Heathrow to the flat which is always well received after an overnight flight from the U.S. Once clients have found their way around London, they can easily make their own return to the airport for their flight home at the end of the stay. Third, the owners are very happy to assist their guests with any required information that may help them find their way around the city. They are even willing to stock groceries in advance for their guests for just the cost of the groceries to allow their guests to make the maximum use of their time in London. In 35 years in this business, this is the first time I have seen this offer. I was happy to find this option and will hope to send further clients their way! Thanks, Liz and Carl!"

  • Wonderful stay at Handel Street apartment

    "My wife and I stayed at the Handel Street flat for three weeks from late November to early December, 2014. It was perfect for us, comfortable, well-appointed, and well-maintained. Bob met us when we arrived and gave us a good briefing on the heating, appliances, and Internet. The WiFi is great—it let us check hours/locations of sites, the weather forecast, Transport for London and rail websites including Underground/bus delays, and e-mail family. The location of the flat is extremely convenient, on a quiet street close to main bus routes and tube stations including Russell Square, St. Pancras/Kings Cross, and Euston. The Oyster travel card (tube, bus, overground, and some rail) is a must. There are restaurants, pubs, and shopping close-by at the Brunswick Square center and on Marchmont, Woburn, and Hunter Streets, including a Waitrose supermarket which provided many convenient and inexpensive meals. The location is close to the British Museum, British Library, Dickens Museum and the many squares and small parks of Bloomsbury. The area feels very secure with many students and residents out during the day and evening. This flat very quickly became our home-away-from home. Bob and Sue were very thoughtful and provided us with some starter food items and their communication emails were professional and timely. We are anticipating a return visit!"
