  • 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!"

  • Charming Sloane Square Apartment

    "The Wellesley apartment is a charming and comfortable cottage located in a very private and quiet mews just off Sloane Square. It was exactly "as advertised" on the VRBO website. It is well appointed in terms of both overall decor and furnishings (furniture and everyday needs). My girlfriend and I were there from December 29 thru January 5 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My only suggestion for future guests who are there in colder weather is to make sure there space heaters available for use on each of the first and second levels to ensure that the apartment is comfortably warm. London Perfect provided a second space heater to supplement the one already in place on our first night and we never had a heating issue thereafter. Both my girlfriend and I have been to London many, many times and we would not hesitate to stay at the Wellesley apartment again."

  • Great place

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this most interesting flat! Six of us fit quite comfortably using all 4 of the beds. Being on the canal was just about the best part of the trip - almost felt like we were at the beach and still within 5 min of the nearest tube station. Good restaurants including Bumpkin in Notting Hill and The Oak were about 10 minute walks. While not in Notting Hill, the flat was very close and totally enjoyable. I would rent again!"

  • Outstanding house in wonderful Notting Hill

    "My son, daughter-in-law, and three grand children (ages 8 to 12) stayed with me in this absolutely lovely home in London's Notting Hill district. The pictures we saw before deciding on the rental 'described' the property perfectly; in fact it was better than we imagined. The spacious rooms were clean, the bed linens fresh and beautiful, the bathrooms remarkable. The kitchen/garden area was spectacular, particularly an appropriate place for the children. The owners were helpful every step of the way as we were making our rather complicated arrangements. The location was superb. We tended to walk to either the Bayswater or Notting Hill underground when we visited other parts of London; the grocery shopping close by was excellent. All in all, a truly wonderful visit and we would recommend it highly."
