Welcome to my home! I am really excited to welcome travellers to my home.
The apartment is located in Earl's Court which is a lovely, green and safe neighbourhood in South West London, close to the super chic Chelsea & Kensington are. You only need to walk 5 mins from the Earl's Court station to get to the flat.
My street is lined with graceful Victorian conversions so typical of London. You will truly feel like a local here. The flat is on the first floor of a larger white stucco fronted home. You have to walk up a few stairs to get to the front door.
Once inside you will be wowed by the sense of space - the living and dining room includes a flat screen TV, comfy sofa and a dining table to seat up to 6.
The kitchen includes an oven, hob, fridge, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, ironing board and iron, so has everything you need to prepare delicious meals at home, or put a wash on if you need to. We like to keep our kitchen stocked with essentials such as tea, coffee and sugar for our guests. If you do fancy staying in and cooking, why not dine al fresco when the weather's nice? The terrace is spacious and is very rare for such a central London location - a real hidden oasis!
There are two double bedrooms in the property both with king beds. All the beds have freshly pressed, white, luxurious linen to give you the most comfortable nights sleep.
The master bedroom is spacious, with plenty of storage for you to unpack and feel at home. It has an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom has a huge wardrobe and bathroom next to it containing a bath to relax in after a busy day! This bedroom looks over the green and light of the garden so it's extremely quiet and peaceful.
We provide fluffy, white towels for our guests as well as toiletries such as shampoo and shower gel. We also have a hairdryer so no need to worry about bringing these things with you!
The apartment comes with a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board, so that you can look fresh for exploring the city or for any business meetings! A baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
The apartment is your own. Cleaned professionally with fresh luxury linens, it's prepared for each new visitor.

Earl's Court is a beautiful area with rich, grand architecture and plenty to do and see close by. There's loads of eateries, bars and cafes around the tube station as well as handy supermarkets so there's no shortage of convenient places in the area. It sits within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea which is one of London's most beautiful, affluent and exclusive areas due to its rich architecture, fancy shops and beautiful restaurants and bars.
If you are flying into Heathrow, then the flat is very easy to get to - just hop on the Piccadilly line at the airport and within 35 mins you will be at Barons Court station.
Looking for something to do in the daytime? It borders with South Kensington and Gloucester Road, with their world famous museums just a short walk, or an even shorter bus ride away! If shopping is your thing then here is a top tip - you can get some really really nice stuff at High Street Kensington and Knightsbridge and still beat the crowds that throng Oxford Circus and Bond Street. I would high recommend going to High Street Kensington as it is much less stressful.
If you are looking for the "big" sights such as the Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster Abbey then you are lucky. The flat is a great base to get to these places. Just hop on the underground and you will be there in 15 mins.
If you are after more cerebral matters then head to South Kensington for the museums such as the Natural History and V&A. The world famous Royal Albert Hall is located here and tickets can be bought on the day of a performance early in the morning. The area is residential but also close to London's two great exhibition centres - The Earl's Court Exhibition Centre and the Kensington Olympia, both walking distance from the flat.
You couldn’t be better located here! The apartment is located just a 4 minute walk away from Earl’s Court tube station and an 11 minute walk away from West Kensington station. Between them, these two stations are serviced by the Piccadilly line and District line. This means that on these lines you can get directly to famous London sights such as; Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Buckingham Palace (get off at Green Park tube station to get here!), Sloane Square (one of the best stops for getting to the heart of Chelsea). Travellers coming from far and wide will also be pleased to know that you can hop on the Piccadilly line straight to Kings Cross St Pancras station - for national and international trains, and hop on in the other direction and you arrive directly to Heathrow terminals 2, 3, 4 & 5. This is London’s busiest airport and living here means you are so conveniently located to it. Make the most of that extra time by shopping, sightseeing or sleeping!!
There are also plenty of buses in the area, which are a great way of travelling if you like to have a peek at your surroundings as you travel.
A great local tip is to download the Citymapper app. This free app will plan your journey for you efficiently and quickly. It gives you a variety of different transport options such as bike, rail, tube and Uber taxi. It will also take you step by step through your journey as you travel and notify you when you are nearing your destination.
Other things to note
We are located on the first floor, and like many other traditional London homes there is no lift access. This means there are a few steps but we think it is worth it for the lovely overlooking view of the garden.
