The location to tube and grocery was great. Property could use a deep cleaning in the shower or re caulking. Also needs wash cloths for showering. The towels are big and soft and the hand towels are nice but a bit cumbersome to use for washing Having a washer and dryer was so helpful during our stay with a little one who ends up wearing most of his meals. The garden was a great bonus to this flat. Weeds could be pulled up but we didn't mind. Also we left a box of ice making bags as there are no trays in the freezer. Since we were there during a heat wave we wanted to fill our thermos with ice water before setting out for the day. Overall it was a nice place to stay in a good location.

London in March
This flat was in a quieter residential neighborhood, however the #18 bus stopped at the end of the street and a block away were convenience stores and restaurants. The Tube was a 10 minute walk (Warrick station or Royal Oak station). The beds in the bedrooms were comfortable and we used the living room futon as a third bed since there were 6 of us. We pushed the futon into the corner alcove so that the bed could remain as a bed while we had 2 other sofas to sit on. So, if you need to utilize a living room sofa bed, this is an ideal set up to be able to still have living room seating.
The kitchen was well equipped - the flat is redone and modernized. There is a nice back patio which we would have used if the weather was warmer. There is a separate laundry room with clothes rack, iron an ironing board. Check-in was done in person with a representative of the management company - no problems there.
I have some suggestions for improvement (I will also email the mgmt company with these):
Washing machine and dryer could have used some instructions for those of us from outside the UK. We found that we could not run both at the same time (this would trip a fuse). Sometimes the dryer ran 'forever' and the clothes were still quite damp. I believe these issues probably occurred because of our infamiliarity of the two types of appliances. Also, no laundry soap or pods were provided (fyi).
There were only 5 dinner plates for this 6 person flat. Most likely an oversight after a tennant had broken a plate.
Someone who lives in the building leaves extra trash in front of this apartment. The trash was not entirely contained in bags and wasn't placed in the garbage cans, so when the garbage was picked up by the garbage company, only the bins were emptied and all of this trash remained. When walking home we would easily find our flat because of the garbage in the front. The trash out front would not keep me from staying again in this flat but I think whomever is dumping it is very inconsiderate of the other tenants and to the owner of this flat who are trying to rent it out. This is how a house looks dumpy and I hope the owner has an avenue of recourse to stop this behavior (I think that there was an earlier review about trash in front).
To summarize, there were 6 adults staying in this flat (parents and 4 young adult children) and it felt spacious and it was well laid out. The location was convenient by Tube to all of the tourist attractions.
Our trip to London
We absolutely loved our bright, clean apartment in London. Hostmaker/VRBO were fabulous to deal with. We would go back in a flash!
Great place to stay and excellent for Family. Kids really enjoyed it and the house was complete with all necessary accessories perfect for long break or even short vacation. I'd recommend this to my friends
Great flat with great location.
This flat is located perfectly to get around central London and explore the city. Everyone I came in contact with was very polite and helpful. The flat itself was clean and very well furnished. Would definitely stay here again.
I had a wonderful 5-day stay here with my husband and our two girls (ages 3 and 5). The place was clean and spacious with a reasonable walking distance to the Tube station. My sister and her husband also joined us for a couple days and stayed on the futon in the living room. A minor note for those cooking their own meals, the place was a bit light on dishes, utensils, and pots/pans. We did make a number of meals and there was enough to make it work, but if you are planning on cooking I would recommend checking what they have before committing to a specific meal. In all, the stay was wonderful and I would definitely stay here again.
