About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This studio apartment is perfectly located in Onslow Gardens which is in South Kensington. There are many nearby museums including the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum. There is also excellent shopping nearby and it is about a ten minute walk to Harrods. Transportation is excellent. There are many restaurants nearby as well as shops for groceries.

The apartment is fully furnished and includes bed and bath linens and all kitchen equipment. There is a king sized bed (American Queen) which can be separated to provide twin beds. There is also excellent storage space.

There is a dressing area adjoining the studio room leading to the bathroom, which is very private.

The apartment benefits from a private entrance and the use of beautiful communal gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have already recommended the apartment to several of my personal

friends after our most pleasant stay there. It is thoughtfully laid out and well

equipped, the hostess is extremely helpful and last but not least, it is

location, location that counts! Lovely neighbourhood, only a few minutes'

walk to two underground stations. From there you are at Piccadilliy Circus in

12 minutes.

Excellent Location & Friendly/Helpful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days in October 2016. The location is excellent and a short walk to either the South Kensington or Gloucester tube stop (Piccadilly Line, also the direct line from Heathrow). The flat is fully equipped and clean. The kitchen has everything that you will need a stay. The flat has ample storage and the bathroom (with tub) works well. The bed was comfortable and the WIFI had a strong signal. Holly was always available to help out and offered excellent eating recommendations. Overall, a great stay and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Cheers Holly.

Terrific flat, terrific owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 weeks and were delighted with everything. The location can't be beat, 3 blocks from South Kensington tube, a bus a few meters away that takes you right to the tube-we took the 7 day travel pass and rode busses & the tube everywhere, so convenient. Near the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum.

The flat has a nice little kitchentte where we cooked breakfast each morning and occasionally made dinner.

Bed comfortable, couch & chairs great for reading & research. Bathroom very nice. The owners were very helpful and suggested things we might do and how to get there. Highly recommended!!

Perfect 5-Star Ratings For a Reason

  • 5 of 5

After researching properties on this website, I chose this one based on its stellar rating. Now that I'm back after a week+ stay, I can only echo what has been written before. Don't hesitate! You'll be hard-pressed to find anything that trumps this value. It's clean, well-equipped, and has a very comfortable bed/pillows (slept better there than on my TempurPedic at home!) The neighborhood is quite upscale; it's safe and, for being in the city, quiet. The two nearby Tube stations are a huge bonus, as is the grocery store located 5 minutes away on foot. The owners set this unit apart, though. They are wonderful hosts, providing presence and hospitality without meddling. The whole experience was very classy. I highly recommend it.

Lovely, cozy and covenient flat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this location and thoroughly enjoyed it! It is a lovely space, very well maintained and clean and comfortable. The location of the flat can’t be beat. It is within a ten minute walk to two tube stations (South Kensington or Gloucester) which both connect to multiple tube lines as well as bus routes. The neighborhood itself is very scenic and there are lots of restaurants as well as groceries, pharmacies, pubs, post office and more on the walk to the tube stations. There are museums also within a short walking distance, just by S Kensington station. The flat contains all you need for cooking and more. Holly is a very gracious host, helpful and thorough but gives you space to enjoy the flat. Highly recommended! And I look forward to staying again on future visits.

Great flat, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to London, if we are fortunate enough to return we will definitely stay. The flat was very comfortable and in a great location, within an easy walk to several restaurants and stores. South Kensington Tube is only a 5 minute walk. From there we could easily get to anywhere we wanted to go in London, most times without even transferring to another line--even Heathrow! We never took a taxi or bus. Holly was wonderful, very helpful and right upstairs if we needed her. Highly recommend this flat.

Great flat for London

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to enjoy another stay here! Holly goes the extra mile to provide all the amenities for a pleasant stay and worked with our arrival and departure times. We were comfortable and cozy and it was easy to connect to wherever we wanted to travel.

We are indebted to the Holm- Schuhmachers for sharing their flat in lovely Onsllow Gardens. It made our trip to London very enjoyable.
