Welcome to my home and to this amazing city! This is a beautiful 2 bed 2 bath in the exclusive Knightsbridge area.
The apartment is really spacious at 140 sq metres (1,500 sq ft) and has its own front door. The colourful living room has a traditional family feel to it. There are two comfy sofas for guests to use where you can put your feet up in the evenings, kick back and relax! Make sure you chill out one evening and enjoy the flat screen TV and the DVDs we have there for guests. The living area is also home to the dining area, which is the perfect spot to enjoy some local delicacies. Top tip, try out the nearby Duke of York Square international food market on a Saturday with its wide array of edible goodies from duck confit to vegan cakes and delicious rainbow wraps. You will not leave empty handed!
If cooking a gourmet meal at home is more your thing, then rest assured the kitchen will have everything you need such as all the basic condiments, and as an added extra we make sure that there is also always plenty of tea, coffee and sugar so that you can make yourself a traditional British cup of tea in the morning! There are also all the mod-cons such as toaster, kettle, microwave and dishwasher that you might expect. We really want to ensure that you have a comfortable stay here in London!
There are two bedrooms in the apartment. The master bedroom has a king sized bed whilst bedroom number two has two single beds which can be zipped together to create a super king sized bed (as you can see in the photos). Both bedrooms are spacious with colourful homely touches. There is also plenty of storage space for guests to store all their belongings.
Finally, the property also benefits from two full bathrooms. The set up is slightly different and by that I mean there is one main bathroom, one shower room and one separate toilet. The bathrooms will always come stocked with plenty of white fluffy towels and all the essential toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel and hand soap to ensure that you have a comfortable stay in London.
The apartment comes with a combination washer/dryer, iron and ironing board, so that you can look fresh for exploring the city or for any business meetings!
The apartment is your own. Cleaned professionally with fresh luxury linens, it's prepared for each new visitor.
