About the property

Newly decorated spacious studio in quiet street perfectly located for West End

This studio flat would suit a single or couple. It has its own entrance from the street, but is part of a large private house. It is quiet and brilliantly located for the park, shopping and sightseeing. The flat is maintained to a very high standard and has been newly refurbished and decorated. It has a large double bed with new mattress and feather pillows. New 100% cotton sheets. There is a clothes washer and dryer. Separate kitchen (separate room) with microwave, cooker, coffee maker (nespresso) etc. The Studio room has lots of cupboard space, a TV, WIFI and a small sofa. There is a small shower off the bedroom and between the bedroom and kitchen there is a small table for eating. This is a really sweet studio and it isn't that small. It is warm with underfloor heating. There are all mod cons and up to date guide books for your use.

About Ann

This home is owned by an English family who live in the building but have a separate entrance. We have two grown up children. We have restored the building to a high standard and are one of the few remaining original houses in the area.

Ann purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Ann chose Westminster and West End

This is a really beautiful house of grand proportions and lovingly restored. The area is just wonderful and we really love living here. It is both quiet and vibrant and centrally located plus perfect for the park.

What makes this apartment unique

It is quiet and self contained and excellently located for transport, park and sightseeing. Close to supermarkets and restaurants. The flat is spotlessly clean and new with modern amenities, such as clothes washer, cooker and underfloor heating.

Fabulous trip

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at the flat the end of March. All was as advertised. The flat was clean, well-appointed, and in a good location. Basic provisions (coffee, tea, milk) were there ready for us. There is easy walking distance to supermarkets and the underground (Baywater and Queensway). Anne-Mari was at the flat to greet us and orient us to the flat. She checked in with us during the week to make certain that everything was okay. All in all an excellent stay. We will stay there again given the opportunity.

Friendly, clean, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying here. Not only were two underground stations very close by, but from the apartment we also walked to Hyde Park, Kensington Palace, and Buckingham Palace. Coming home at night dog tired from and aching, we were perfectly comfortable in this apartment with the comfy bed and pillows and hot shower. We didn't use the TV but it was conveniently there. The kitchen was stocked and had everything we needed. Walk down towards Hyde Park to eat breakfast at the Cafe (recommended on their info sheet) or go to Old Mary's a few blocks away for really great cocktails. Ann was very sweet and although I never met her she was kind enough to check in on us and made sure we were okay after the attack at Westminster. Her husband was also very kind and showed us around the flat. Overall a perfect stay!

Perfect flat for two, in the heart of London.

  • 5 of 5

If I could give 6 stars I would! This adorable little flat located in the heart of central London was the perfect vacation rental for two. Aside from being in an ideal location (close to tube stations, great restaurants, grocery store, park) it was clean and stocked with everything you might need away from home. Fully functioning kitchen with laundry machine/dryer. TV. As well as other amenities (Hair dryer, umbrella, guide books, tube map). Upon arrival there was fresh bread, milk, coffee and shortbread cookies. Communication with the owner was great. She responded to email immediately and was extremely helpful with all questions about flat and London in general. Highly recommend!!

Fantastic Spot.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Ann's flat. It was cosy, comfortable and in a great location. It was a little home away from home. We had everything we needed. It was lovely and clean. The bed was comfortable and the washing/dryer machine meant we could continue on our travels with lovely clean clothes. Ann and her husband were welcoming but not intrusive. Bus stop a short stroll away. Kensington Gardens just opposite. Great location, lovely flat so would highly recommend.

Comfy and handy

  • 5 of 5

This flat was a great base; handy to Paddington, two tube stops and buses. It was well-appointed and comfortable. Our hosts thoughtfully provided us neighborhood recommendations and safety information and contacts on a laminated page. We loved that the front of the house was planted with calla lilies, hydrangea, hollyhock, and wisteria; including sightings of an English robin. Thank you Ann-Mari, Ivo and Maria.

Location

From the Owner

This is a really beautiful house of grand proportions and lovingly restored. The area is just wonderful and we really love living here. It is both quiet and vibrant and centrally located plus perfect for the park.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

This flat is located in between Lancaster Gate and Bayswater. 1 minute from Kensington Gardens. The street is quiet and safe, but the area is vibrant and fun, with shops, bars and restaurants nearby. It is close to all public transport (tubes & buses) so for a base it is excellent. Oxford Street is just 4 minutes by bus, Kensington Gardens 1 minute walk from the front door and it's a 5 minutes bus ride to Portobello Road Market. Round the corner is Whiteleys Department Store, which has lots of shops cinemas and restaurants. Queensway is a few minutes walk away & is full of ethnic restaurants and great fun. It is in a brilliant location for sightseeing as well as shopping and eating. Paddington Station is 5 minutes walk from the flat making it very easy to get to from from Heathrow airport - you take the Heathrow Express from Heathrow to Paddington, which takes 15 minutes.
