About the property

South Kensington. Superb light bright two double bedroom lower ground floor apartment. Key access to gated Gardens opposite the apartment.

WHEN BOOKING APARTMENT ALWAYS CHECK TUBE LINES. PICCADILLY FOR ALL THEATERS, DISTRICT AND CIRCLE FOR SHOPPING & SIGHTSEEING.

SO IMPORTANT!

49 BUS (4 min walk) TAKES YOU TO WESTFIELD'S MULTIMILLION POUND SHOPPING CENTRE PASSING KENSINGTON HIGH ST & HYDE PARK ON THE WAY

KITCHEN WITH OVEN AND CERAMIC HOB PLUS A NEW WET ROOM/WALK-IN SHOWER

ONLY 5 MINUTES WALK TO GLOUCESTER RD TUBE!!

SUPERB SAFE AREA WITH PRETTY GATED GARDEN OPPOSITE

WIFI IS INCLUDED AS WELL AS ALL THE UTILITY BILLS!!

ALL INCLUSIVE - NO EXTRAS

£500 damage deposit, returned on day of departure.

This quiet light bright two double bedroom property is located on the lower ground floor of a Victorian conversion.

The apartment consists of a comfortable spacious living room with feature skylights, MODERISED kitchen with integrated appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, clothes-dryer, microwave, fridge oven & ceramic hob, toaster, kettle, cutlery, central heating etc.

There is also a TV and DVD player with miscellaneous CDs and DVDS as well as its own book collection, so you can curl up with a novel on cosy sofas after a day’s sight-seeing.

*The rental price is inclusive of all electricity and heating charges, council tax, towels, sheets and linen and also staples in the kitchen (tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper)*

Indeed this inclusive rate is unusual for a London apartment as most charge extra for taxes etc.

There are two compact double bedrooms with comfortable double beds. The wet room is new and it's fantastic!

The second bedroom is the bedroom I was using when the photographer came (hence slightly creased bedclothes!!) It also has a small TV in this bedroom.

This room has a door leading to outside space. The outside space is small, but very useful for laundry purposes.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Gloucester Road on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes to Victoria station which is fifteen minutes away by cab to the flat or 3 straight tube stops to Gloucester Rd tube.

Or we have a driver who will pick you up from Heathrow. His charges are:- £48 pick up from any terminal. £38 to drop off.

Location can not be beaten (check my reviews) with just a few minutes walking distance to Natural History Museum, V&A or catch a concert at the Albert Hall home to the Proms, the world’s great classical music festival.

Most important is the closeness to the tube with West-end theaters 15 mins tube ride. It's only a 5 minute walk to Hyde Park as well as Kensington High St.

I must stress that when staying in London, location, location and location is of the utmost importance and having 3 central tube lines will get you anywhere you need to get to in London without having to change lines.

Knightsbridge is close by with the famous Harrods, it's only a 5 minutes walk to Gloucester Rd tube.

The 49 bus (3 mins walk from the flat) takes you to the new billion pound shopping complex Westfield, passing Kensington High St on the way.

There are many international restaurants and bars in the area. Quality shopping at Waitrose and nearby Sainsburys supermarkets.

Check in 4pm - checkout 10am.

We will be on hand to meet and show you how everything works in the apartment. We will happily answer your questions and fulfil you requests in any way we can and can also hire you a car and driver to take you to and from the airport if required.

Our property manager, David lives in London and he will share his knowledge with you.

About Julie

I live in N. Ireland with my husband and have been letting property since 1976. I lived in London before I married so it's always a good excuse to come back when reletting the apartment.

I have twin girls of 32 - Claire is married and teaches A level maths. Kate is also married and is a primary school teacher. Prior to this she pioneered a charity in Uganda for the last 5 years sponsoring street children called Tomorow's Heros now renamed Freedom Heroes.

Julie purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Julie chose Kensington

I love this property because of the location as it is just so close to everything and has a real buzz to the area.

It feels very light and airy.

I also still have friends in this area.

What makes this apartment unique

It is much quieter than most London flats as it's a REAR lower ground floor flat and not underneath the building. That is why it's so light because it is not in the basement as such. This can be seen in the photos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! Would love to come back as soon as we can- please send the link and I'll write a nice review - we had a fabulous time in London!

Best,

Great location and a very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay in London! It's close Hyde Park, and the Glouster tube station; and biking distance to just about everything. The flat is very clean and comfortable, and the owner is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Great Location and very reasonable price for London

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 days in the flat. The location of the flat is exceptional. 10 minute walk to V&A, natural history and science museum as well as Hyde Park. Also the tube station is a 5 minute walk away which will take you to all major attractions. The beds were very comfortable and kitchen was well stocked. The only minor suggestion I would have is that the television should be on a slightly taller table for better viewing, otherwise I would not hesitate recommending this flat, felt like home when we came back from sightseeing. Awesome place Julie!!!!

Kensington address

Very bright, clean and cool. Convenient to restaurants and some small shops. Having two bedrooms was important for us. I would recommend this property.

Quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We happened to be staying here during a record breaking heat wave. As people from the U.S. used to air conditioning, we were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the flat’s temperature stayed by keeping the two windows open and leaving a floor fan on. The kitchen has a little mini fridge and enough supplies for us to save money by eating in for all breakfasts and several other meals over the two week stay. It’s about an 8-10 minute walk to the underground which conveniently has multiple tube lines to get us anywhere we needed. The Waitrose right next to the tube also made picking up supplies for dinner easy on our way home. It’s a 10 minute walk north to get to Hyde Park and we used the bus stops up there frequently. We used Raza to get to and from the airport which made everything very simple. We loved having a quiet, local area to come back to after dealing with the hustle and bustle all day.

Wonderful flat, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Cornwall Gardens! The flat is bright and modern, with a really nice walk-in shower. We found the bedrooms comfortable and private and the living area perfect for relaxing after long days of sightseeing. The owner, Julie, is very prompt and helpful with her communication. The flat’s location is wonderful - such a pretty and quiet neighborhood with a delightful private garden across the street. The Gloucester Road tube station is an easy five-minute walk away, and its lines went directly to pretty much everywhere we wanted to go.

We were extremely sad to leave and hope to return soon! Thank you, Julie!

Comfy quiet and stylish flat close to Underground

  • 5 of 5

Only a stone’s throw from the Gloucester Road Underground station, Julie’s flat is perfect for easy travel throughout London as well as to the countryside. With skylights in every room, the flat is bright, stylish, and comfortable. We look forward to returning soon!
