Overview

About the property

US based London Connection 4 bedroom 3 bath Mews House

Sloane Square is one of the most desirable areas in central London. This reputation is due to the fine restaurants, shopping, excellent transportation, and fine houses and flats. Sloane Square Tube Station has both the Central and District lines which offer excellent transportation throughout the city. But there is one real benefit to living in the residential areas around Sloane Square: it is quiet. The property the London Connection is offering is a mews house in a very quiet location very near Lower Sloane Street, just across the street from the Sloane Club. The location is amazing. The accommodation is a three-minute walk to the tube station, 5 minutes to the Duke of York Plaza on the King's Road, and ten minutes to Harrods. Carafini, a very famous Italian restaurant, is just on the corner, and along Lower Sloane Street a visitor will fine an Italian market, a small food market, a tailor, and wonderful antique shops--some of the finest in London. Some of London's finest antique shops and designer shops are along Pimlico Road and Holbein Place including Lord Linley's retail store. The historic Royal Hospital of Charles II is around the corner, and a lovely walk through Eaton Square is five minutes distance. It is perfect. I love the walk up Sloane Street past Cadogan Square and the old Cadogan Hotel. Lilly Langtree lived on Pont Street, just up the way.

The property we are offering in located in one of the quiet mews streets in this desirable area. It is a house on three floors with all the charm and beauty one would expect in this affluent area. On the ground floor, there are two double bedrooms--one with two twins, and one with a double bed. A full bathroom with shower over the tub, wash hand basin, and loo is attached to these two bedrooms. Up a very small flight of original period stairs one will find an elegant living room filled with beautiful paintings, 18th century furniture, and fine bronze sculptures including a large pair of bronze polo ponies and riders. The dining table in a separate eating area will seat six/seven persons. The kitchen has all machines including microwave, oven and hob, dishwasher. A washer/dryer is located in a hidden cupboard in the bedroom on the ground floor. On the top floor of this lovely mews are two double bedroom, both with queen size beds, good storage, and large windows. Each bedroom on this floor has its own en suite bathroom, one with a shower stall, sink, loo and the other bathroom with tub, shower, and loo. The bedrooms are filled with beautiful decorative items. A mews property of this size and quality is a very rare offering for short-let visitors to London. They are such desirable properties, and a visit to London in this accommodation is fantastic. Imagine, four bedrooms and three bathrooms in a mews house just off Sloane Square in Belgravia. Fantastic indeed. If you are in this budget, this is a first rate property. Visitors to this property must be aware of the fabulous collection of artwork and 18th century furniture in the house and are willing enjoy being careful in these surroundings. This is a far cry from a casual beach house in Florida. You will love staying here. It is really fabulous. By the way, my favorite restaurant in London is just around the corner on Holbein Place. Check out my blog by Googling, London Connection Blog. Where I write about the two excellent restaurants near this accommodation. There are two televisions--one in the master bedroom and one in the lounge and Internet is installed in the house Perfect! HIGH-SPEED INTERNET with wireless router (802.llb/g) has been installed for those traveling with computers. Property is designated non-smoking.

Keywords: A very quiet location very near Lower Sloane Street, just across the street from the Sloane Club. The accommodation is a three-minute walk to the tube station, 5 minutes to the Duke of York Plaza on the King's Road, and ten minutes to Harrods.

5 night minimum for most reservations. 3 nights considered within 30 days of arrival.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The flat was, quite simply, perfect. We were seven adults (three married couples + me) in London to celebrate my 40th birthday and the flat could not have been a better fit. The space was just right, enough so that we could spread out, but cozy enough that we felt like we were in a proper English Mew house. Especially impressive was the amount of hot water! I don't know how big the hot water heater must be, but to provide for seven hot showers every morning! The convenience also could not be beat, we made great use of the neighborhood itself as well as access to the Tube. I have been singing the praises of the flat and, will be a repeat customer!

Perfect location and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of eight (six adults and two kids, ages 10 and 12) staying in this home for a week. Location cannot be beat - a 3-minute walk to the Sloane Square tube, where both the District and Circle lines run, and just three stops to Westminster Abbey. The home is very well-appointed, and the beds were comfortable. No real complaints at all. If I were to be extremely nit-picky, the door to the first-floor bedroom with the two single beds has a hard time staying propped open (there is a doorstop provided for this purpose but it struggles a bit), which you will want to do since otherwise the room will heat up when the lights are on. I think this room was converted from an old garage since the windows are very high up the wall and do not open. In July or August, you might want to use a portable fan in this room. Other nit-picks: no half-bath on the 2nd level, which is where one would entertain any guests (kitchen, living room, etc.). But really, if those are the biggest issues? It's more than fine. The neighborhood feels extremely safe and there are plenty of choices for cafes and restaurants nearby. All in all a great option for a large party looking to be centrally located in something a bit nicer and homier than your typical sterile hotel. One word of caution: the home is FULL of art (see the picture of the bust in the front entrance) so if you have kids under the age of 5 who think everything is a makeshift jungle gym, this might be a bit risky. I can't imagine the replacement cost for some of these items if they were broken. :)

Lovely flat, but...

  • 4 of 5

Four couples stayed here for a week in October 2014. We were delighted with the location of the flat and it’s proximity to the tube, shopping and restaurants. Everything others have said about the location is true. The style and furnishings of the flat are as represented in the listing; the downstairs bathroom was wonderful. However, the flat is not big enough for 8 adults. The main living/dining area is lovely but there is not enough seating area for all 8 people to sit comfortably. We were tripping over each other when we were all together on the main floor. More significantly, the 4th bedroom (not pictured in the listing) has 2 very uncomfortable twin beds and is located in the same room as the washer and dryer, making it both undesirable as a bedroom and inconvenient as a laundry. In addition, there was no hot water in one of the upstairs bathrooms and water that was sometimes there and sometimes not in the other, although, to be fair, this may have been fixable if we had taken the time to tell the property manager about this. Both of the bedrooms at the front of the flat had considerable road noise. On the plus side, internet was great!

Perfect Mews

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect London Mews property. We were 6 adults and needed to have private bathrooms for each of the 3 bedrooms. There are 2 stall showers, although the one on the top, third, floor is small. The appointments throughout made us feel as if we were visiting someone's home, rather than a commercial space. The beds, linens, kitchen supplies were all excellent. We had a slight water problem and it was rectified in very short order. The location is ideal: very quiet but only a few streets from Sloan Square with its tube station, bus stops, shops and restaurants. All in all HomeAway came through once again. This was our 3rd time using their properties. I recommend them highly.

Great Location, Great Accomodation,

  • 5 of 5

This home was extremely well appointed, looked just like the pictures, had everything one needed and the location was great. All the beds were very comfortable and sheets/pillows were nice. The area is full of great restaurants as well as high end shopping. The TUBE was less than a five minute walk as were buses to all the sights and areas of interest. Climate control worked well and kept us cosy the whole time.

Management was very attentive to our every need.

The pick up at airport and back was efficient and easy.

As a VRBO landlord, interior decorator and frequent traveler, I would recommend this property without reservation!
