About Carol-anne Turner
Hi! I have lived in this lovely house for over 20 years and started The Black and White House holiday rentals over a year ago on the penthouse floor, this has been such a success, I have so enjoyed my year or so and have had such lovely visitors, that I have added the Middle Floor Suite, you can check out my reviews on VRBO # 373926, which also give more info. I have lived in this area all my life and am a real Londoner, I offer my wealth of knowledge to my visitors to help them get the most out of their vacation or business trip, I have even had both floors taken over by a wedding party, I helped oragnize the hair, make up, nails and drivers and all the things that help make a wedding special, including Champagne! I used to work in films, but now I run this business, I have a son who lives in Barcelona Spain and from next year, we will be expanding over there for those who would like to do a 2 center trip.
Carol-anne Turner purchased this Apartment in 1950
Why Carol-anne Turner chose Belsize Park
I really love this house, it was my grandfathers and I spent my childhood running over here for treats and pocket money, my grandpa always said one day it would be mine, and to my delight, he kept his word. Of course, over the years I have extensively modernized it. I brought up my son here, ran my make up business from here and now I live on the ground floor and travel a lot, but I am here to welcome my lovely guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
Having been here so long and lavished loving care and attention on this lovely house, it is my pleasure to open it for guests on holiday, business or a simple break. Welcome to The Black and White House! Carol-anne
Local Services & Businesses
Excellent comfortable apartment
Really enjoyed our stay in this large, bright, comfortable apartment. Our landlady was welcoming, flowers in our unit on arrival and assistance in carrying our luggage upstairs. She was extremely obliging immediately responding to any requests that we had. The apartment is conveniently situated 4 minutes from the local main street and the underground. We highly recommend this accommodation.
A great find!
A spacious apartment in a great area. Clean and sunny apartment. Enough room for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). Very close to tube stop. Carol Ann was a wonderful host- even dropping off umbrellas and rain coats on a rainy day in case we didn't have any. Mia was very helpful getting us settled in. We came from Chicago for a vacation. I would stay here again!
Gem in Camden
We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 nights stay in your lovely spacious apartment. Mia graciously met us upon our arrival and was helpful during our stay. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom faces the quiet side of the building. Since it was Christmas time we were fortunate to have lights hung from our front windows. We sampled a few restaurants in the neighborhood- would return to all of them. We look forward to staying here on our next trip to London. Thank you for sharing your home Carol Anne.
We had been given details of this place from someone who had stayed there and we were thoroughly delighted with it. Close to station and supermarket and restraunts and quiet, clean and well appointed. Carol is a most lovely and helpful owner and very easy going. The apartment has everything you would need including some things for cooking. You have to get the underground to get to all the tourist sights butmonce you master that it is really easy. We did have a plesant 35 minute walk to the famous Beatles Abbey road crossing. We would thoroughly recommend this place to others. Roomy, great bed, large living area and even a surprise balcony at the back! Enjoy London and enjoy this place and location
We stayed for 4 days and nights and it was great. Lovely quiet neighborhood with markets, wine shop, coffee shops and a few delicious and reasonable restaurants nearby. The flat was very spacious, clean, modern and comfortable. Loved the little deck outside in the courtyard. And free fast Wi-Fi. Our host Carol_Anne is delightful, informative, and available if you need anything. The Tube was a 5 minute walk and the line is so easy to go to various places in London. Would definitely stay again!
Thank you and hope to see you in the future!
This apartment is in the perfect location for exploring London, by tube. The tube station is super close, just down the street. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs and stores near the apartment to make it a good place to relax at the end of the day of London madness.
The flat is much larger than it appears. The bed was comfortable and the area was quiet at night. The kitchen was quite large and the whole place had a great comfort feel.
My only issue was with the bath/shower. The in-ceiling shower was not working, due to a leak in the floor. Thus, we only had the choice of the tub and that ended up overflowing as well. I understand this couldn't be fixed prior to our arrival, but it did put a damper on the stay. If this had worked fine, it would have been a 5 Star Rating easily. Carol Anne was very kind.
Shower is now fixed and working perfectly!
I would like to apologise for the shower problem in the Middle Floor Suite of The Black & White House.
The shower works fine, however the water is leaking into the room below, this is why we had to restrict usage.
Fixing the problem entails ripping up the floor, tanking underneath and relaying the floor. It's a job that will take 8 days and we didn't want to cancel guest stays at short notice to deal with this problem. So I made the decision to accept guests in the hope that this inconvenience would not be too much trouble. I see from the reviews that it is a nuisance, for that I'm really sorry. I strive for very high standards here and I have fallen short.
The shower issue happened suddenly and is now in the hands of our insurers and will be fixed as soon as possible.
Again, apologies and I hope you will see how lovely everything else is when you read our reviews.
Belsize Park, a hidden gem in Camden, known to locals, tourist free, but 20 mins to centre of attractions. Our lovely area boasts a stately home, Kenwood House, which has a lovely cafe for breakasts and lunch followed by a bracing walk on Hampstead Heath, the largest green space in London.
A ten minute walk, or one stop on the tube, takes you to Hampsead, with fabulous boutiques and eating houses. We have friendly pubs with blazing log fires in winter and sunny gardens in summer.
Primrose Hill is around the corner, an amazing view from the top of the hill of Vistas of London, home of celebrities which has attracted some lovely trendy cafes and restaurants to the area, eating out to attract all budgets, plus some cute indie boutiques and a walk in yoga centre; Tri Yoga.
Our local theatre; Hampstead Theatre, features some of the U.Ks foremost actors with innovative and exciting plays, ask for info from me, I can book tickets in advance of visits, as they are often sold out. We also have Keats House, where the famous poet used to live, you can tour the tiny treasure house and look at his bedroom and personal belongings. For a complete change, The Roundhouse is an amazing performance space with an eclectic mix of shows from top musicians to circus to performance art and kids shows. The area is so rich and varied, I am on hand to help. Please also see listing; 373926, for the other apartment in the house, in case you require both spaces for large families, weddings, etc. or for availability..
