About Myles Shevlane

I am a professional who has a number of properties in London, whilst I live in the country with my children I have lived in the area for a number of years and have grown to love Kensington and all it has to offer.

Myles Shevlane purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Myles Shevlane chose Kensington

The key to this property is the fantastic location in the heart of South Kensington, just moments away from all the restaurants and convenient local shops with excellent transport facilities and with Hyde Park just moments away at the top end of Queens Gate. It is an airy spacious one bedroom flat situated on the ground floor of a well maintained Kensington building it is close to Kensington Gardens, South Kensington and Gloucester road and all the amenities they have to offer.

Wonderful location for seeing central London

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice apartment directly across the street from the Natural History Museum. Just a few blocks from both the South Kensington and Gloucester Road underground stations. It is well equipped and there is convenient shopping nearby. The only warning is that the bed is a British King, which is just a few inches wider than a double, so you may be a bit cozy.

Outstanding appartment, ideally located, clean, clear, functional, very well equipped and furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We initially chose to stay at Emma's apartment because my daughter had a summer course at the imperial college. This apartment was absolutely perfect because of its proximity to the college. We were very happy with the cleanliness, functionality and location of the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped and very functional. There was great accessibility to public transports. Underground and bus stations were less than 5 minutes away by foot. Emma was always available to answer any questions we had and eventually assist to fix any minor issues. She made our stay in London all the more pleasant and we thank her for her kindness and help. This apartment was outstanding and far exceeded our expectations.

We warmly recommend this apartment to any of those who intend to have a happy stay in London and will certainly contact Emma and try to have it, if it is still available, for our next stay in London.

amazing London

  • 4 of 5

I booked this holiday to London during the period December 8 to 15. traveling for years with my two small children. I must say that Mr. Shevlane property is ideal for those traveling with children or teens in tow. the apartment is spacious and comfortable. Central and immersed in one of the most beautiful areas of London. close enough to the Natural History Museum and Hyde Park. the owner is a pretty helpful and even when we had a problem with the water supply in the apartment has been able to solve the problem quickly enough. It also offered me an additional discount for the inconvenience. apartment absolutely recommend for family travelers.near subway stations to supermarkets and a number of restaurants and fast food for every palate.
