Great Kensington location
We lucked out with a great London location, just around the block from the tube, close to great restaurants and the grocery store. The mews where it's located is shared with the back door of several restaurants and a (fabulous) bakery, so the lane has delivery motorbikes in front most of the day with lots of lively conversation among the drivers. We chose to think of it as "atmosphere" but those looking for quiet may be bothered by it.
We shared the house with another couple. We got the bedroom on the middle floor and it was lovely and spacious, although half the glass shower door was missing, making for a breezy experience.
The small lower bedroom where our friends stayed had a couple issues they had to deal with, including missing drawer pulls on the wardrobe that had to be pried open with their fingernails.
We had water, milk and biscuits when we arrived and they tracked down the coffee pods we needed later that day. The owner and management company were very nice and responsive when we had questions. I wish I had known to ask what the water tray was in the dryer! I had no idea it had to be emptied in order for the clothes to dry!
As a kindness to weary travelers, it would be a great help to have electrical adapters that come with the rental instead of having to go out and hunt for them as soon as we arrived. If they accidentally get taken, then they can be deducted from the deposit. Or, send a photo of the adapter needed to guests before they arrive so they can purchase them before they travel.
As I said, the location is great...a beautiful neighborhood where we walked to several great restaurants and the Gloucester tube stop that took us everywhere we wanted to go. Don't miss Paul's bakery for breakfast!
Our pre booked apartment became unavailable 1 week before our arrival. Rachel promptly advised of alternatives & we selected another apartment. At such short notice it just wasnt up to the standard or in as good a location as our original booking but we accepted the alternative & managed. For the inconvenience caused to our stay they then gave us 1 free nights accomodation which was a fantastic goodwill gesture. The new apartment was very modern , clean & tidy & pretty well located although it didnt have the 2 bathrooms we really needed for 2 adult couples. I cannot speak more highly of Homeaway & Rachel in particular for assisting us in what was a difficult circumstance outside of their control. I have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective clients. Thank you for everything.
convenient, tidy. bright, and comfortable
This is a very nice flat, just 200 yards from the Gloucester St tube station, off Cromwell road. There is an entry level bedroom, a mid level master suite, and an upstairs living space with kitchen. It is a dedicated rental unit and fully equipped. It has been recently refurbished and the paint and floors are new. It does have some city noise and smells (Byron's burgers) from nearby businesses but that is a trade off for its convenient location. The Victoria and Albert museum complex is 4 blocks away. There has been some recent water damage from the rains, and scaffolding adorns the front of the flat, but I expect this to be gone soon. It did not interfere with the views, because, frankly, there are none. Craig left us 2 contact numbers for problems, but we never needed to call. We got a our full damage deposit back promptly.
I would recommend the flat as it is suitable for 2 couples. I hope to return for a longer stay next year.
Fantastic location and luxurious lodging
I spent nearly one week at this property with my 3 kids aged 17, 13 and 12. It was our first time in London and this was a perfect place to stay and enjoy highlights of the city.
Very beautiful and spacious
I traveled to London from the Netherland and had an amazing trip. So much memories were made. The apartment is true to its description on HomeAway. The hosts were great, made me and my family feel very welcomed and safe. I would recommend this property to everyone!
