- english, french, spanish
We manage eight 'home from home' apartments in the London Kensington Olympia area. We pride ourselves on our warm welcome and the fact that we will be on hand 24/7 for any information requests or to resolve any problems. We have a full time housekeeper on hand, the indomitable Ana, and we are always reachable by phone or email. Please note that all of these apartments are exclusive dedicated full time short let apartments, they are not people's homes just vacated! My husband works for the world's foremost upmarket travel magazine and he loves to pass on any hidden gems in London he has discovered. We look forward to hearing from you and it will be a pleasure to accommodate you during your trip to London. We love our little portfolio of apartments and we are sure you will too! Warm regards Lizzie
Elizabeth purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Elizabeth chose London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham
We always loved the fact Brook Green and Kensington Olympia have very cosy 'village' feels whilst still being in the heart of central London and with easy access to the rest of the city. There are two parks on our doorstep, Holland and Hyde parks, glorious in summer. You can walk to the heart of Kensington in 10 mins - so its very well positioned. It is fabulous for pubs and restaurants, very handy for tubes and trains ... and very easy for exiting London on the M4 or M40 motorways.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great for a getaway!
Our family of four were very comfortable in your apartment! Super check-in process and accommodating owners. Easy access to all things London and so close to Kensington Olympia Station! Thank you, Hugo and Lizzie for sharing your space with us. Next time we are in London, we’ll definitely want to stay here!
Dear Elizabeth ... thanks so much much for such a lovely review, we really appreciate it! You are welcome again any time. Thanks so much and happy rest of the summer to you! all best Lizzie
Great location for sightseeing in London
Great location, well equipped with tasteful decor. Plenty of space for 3-4 guests including dishwasher, washing machine and the all important wifi connection. Easy to get to London’s sights with Supermarkets, restaurants, shops and cinemas ( Westfield, Kensington Highstreet) nearby. For jogging fans, Holland and Kensington Park are in easy distance or alternatively we headed down to the Thames at Hammersmith. Several public transport options including underground, overground and buses. Big thanks to the owner, who was very responsive and helpful when we had queries.
The flat was clean, spacious, comfortable and easily accommodated 4 adults. It contains all of the amenities of home with a fully stocked kitchen, all you'll need to purchase is your own food (there are some neighborhood markets in walking distance or Uber to Tesco on Shepherds Bush Road if you want to do some serious grocery shopping). The flat is located in a quiet residential neighborhood yet close to all amenities. Hugo was gracious and always very responsive.
Dear Pamela ... thanks so much much for such a lovely review, we really appreciate it! You are welcome again any time. Thanks so much and happy onward travels to you! all best Lizzie & Hugo
Very comfortable flat!
This flat is very spacious and comfortable. Everything was in working order. Hugo and Liz are excellent communicators, and provide great information about the neighborhood. Beds are VERY comfortable. Shower is very good, but could benefit from some hand rails for safety. Would call out that this is on the 2nd (UK)/3rd (US) floor, and after sightseeing all day the stairs can be daunting. It is also quite a walk (10-15 min) from any Tube stations, but this is already called out on other reviews. There is no drying rack to be found in the flat, so if using the washing machine, you will need to make-do to get clothing dry. Also note that the Wifi does not work in the primary bedroom downstairs, so no streaming movies on your tablet or checking email in bed. This flat was a comfy respite from noise and very restful at the end of a busy day. Plenty of local restaurants nearby, and a Tesco Express is just the other side of Kensington Olympia.
Great location.Lots of room.
Loved our stay. Would recommend..
Comfortable and cosy flat. We would definitely stay here again.
We are a family of 4 so the flat was perfect for us. The beds were very comfortable and the flat had a cosy feel. The location was also good. It was nice to have a quiet retreat after a busy day touring.
