  • Wonderful Location for Touring London

    "A small but efficient and stylish apartment in a wonderful locations steps away from great shopping streets, yet in a quiet residential area. Close to the underground, beautiful parks, museums, great restaurants, and takeaway food shops. Would love to stay there again!"

  • Lovely flat!

    "Beautiful flat! We stayed here for a week in mid/late April 2014. We were visiting London with our 1 & 3 yr old children, and aside from needing to be cautious with the stairs -- we found the flat to be quite well setup for small children, complete with (if needed) a high chair, pack&play, and children's toys. Bunty was always super welcoming and helpful. They even made room in the entranceway for our huge stroller. There's a playground just a short walk away, and a small grocery store just down at the corner. And don't miss St. Helen's cafe, a half-block away for amazing breakfast, brunch and pastries. The flat is also a short 5-10 min walk to the tube station. The kitchen was small, but definitely sufficient for our needs. We loved the neighborhood, loved the flat, and would definitely stay here again!"

  • 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!"

  • Best place for women traveling alone

    "The flat is located a little far from the sights, theaters etc. It took about 30 to 40 minutes from a center of London. However, it is located in a safe neighborhood, so no problem walking back at 11:30 p.m. The interior is beautifully decorated and has all the facilities. I liked the room looks like a interior magazine very much, so sometimes I just wanted to stay there and read books. Although the neighborhood is quiet, the bed room faces on to a busy road. Light sleepers maybe disturbed by the traffic. However, I slept very well. The owner is a very kind person and quickly responded my inquiry. I recommend this apartment for women traveling alone."
