Nice property in Battersea
We had a very nice stay at this home
In Battersea. The location is good, but a decent walk from Chelsea, etc... the house is quite nice but quite vertical. The kids rooms are pretty small and remote, so young kids might not want to be that far away. Anna, the property manager, is great and very responsive. Overall, we had a nice experience and would recommend the property.
Large, beautiful space
My wife and I visited London with our three children (6, 4 and 19 mos) and my wife’s mother. We arrived at Heathrow at 7:30a with everyone jet lagged. Anna was great to work with, getting us into the property a bit early so we could start to recover from the trip. (Anna had even picked up bread, butter and eggs for us.)
The home is in a renovated schoolhouse. The space is brilliantly laid out on multiple floors, with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen is large and modern and the den has a big, comfy L-shaped sofa, flat panel TV and video projector.
The bedrooms are on the upper floors. Two of them are for adults (with en suite bathrooms), the other three for children (two are very fun/cool loft beds and the third is a comfortable full bed). Our children loved the loft beds and the playroom. A pack and play is available for a slight up-charge. The property is child-proofed, with gates on the stairways. Beautiful contemporary art and photography is hung all through the home.
The location in Battersea is convenient. The neighborhood is relatively recently gentrified and had a family feel as we walked around. While not as outwardly posh as Chelsea and Kensington, it has gotten a reputation as “South Chelsea” and is continuing its upgrade as the Battersea Power Plant renovation project nears completion. There is a small Whole Foods a short Uber ride away. The Latchmere bus stop is a couple blocks from the property and will get you to Central London and Borough Market on the 344 and 44 buses in a snap. We went the other direction one day and caught a train from Clapham Junction to Windsor to tour Windsor Castle and Legoland. Battersea Park is a short walk or jog from the property. We didn’t spend a great deal of time in the park due to rain, but did jog thru early one morning and found it very nice and very safe-feeling.
In summary, we loved this property and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Many thanks to Anna and Shiati for their hospitality!
An amazing family house in Central London. Anna the house-keeper looked after us all so well. The house is even more amazing than the photographs. We had such a wonderful time and will definitely come again.
April 2019 Stay
Great property for a large family. Access to public transportation is very good and Battersea Park is a real plus for children. Several good pubs and restaurants within walking distance but supermarkets for food shopping are a bit of a walk. Presence of an onsite housekeeper was a bit of an annoyance.
We enjoyed the property
The home fit our family perfectly. We loved the location as it was near our daughter and the park. I would recommend it. The only thing that could been done is to provide more blankets.
Our group's experience in this home could not have been better. Our check-in process was super smooth and accommodating as we travelled a long ways to get to the UK from the states and getting through customs and such delayed us. We were concerned about timing but Anna was SUPER flexible and so helpful making our arrival as pain free as possible and was easily accessible if we needed anything; which we didn't because this house has everything you could ever want.
The pictures don't do it justice. It's incredibly spacious with plenty of congregating room in the media room and the enormous (biggest I've ever seen) kitchen. The layout is pretty hard to grasp from photos because it is built vertically as opposed to a traditional house but honestly its incredible. One thing to note-- don't be thrown off by the large space for children. While great for kids I'm sure we used that area for adults and the lofted beds were still comfortable and easy. Would highly recommend to any group, large or small. Though if small prepare to lose a few people in the house as it was more than big enough for 6 large guys to occupy and not even know who was home without giving a yell in the morning. I'd give it and Anna more stars if I could! Would love to come back.
Also, proximity to the city and the sights is great. It's tucked away in a quieter community but a $10 Uber ride gets you right in the mix with no problems.
Thank you Matt what lovely words, lovely boys! I hope you come again. I hope there’s too your trip was wonderful xx
Battersea is a wonderful leafy area. All the joys of Battersea Park are right on the doorstep. There is the children’s zoo, tennis courts, boating on the lake, playgrounds, Go Ape tree top adventure and Putt in The Park (crazy golf) and two lovely cafes one by the lake and the other next to the crazy golf. The vibrant new development at Battersea Power Station also offers cafes, restaurants and shops. Although it is a lovely leafy neighbourhood, it is central, so the main sights of London are close by. There is also wonderful shopping only a 10 minute walk to the famous King's Road and Sloane Square in Chelsea. Knightsbridge and Harrods are close by. Notting Hill is a 15 minute taxi ride.
