A spacious tastefully furnished apartment with a contemporary twist. Perfect for visitors who love the idea of central London living but want a quiet safe and comfortable residential base to relax in at the end of the day. The main living area has 2 comfortable sofas – one of which converts to a double sofa bed with the facility to be screened off for further privacy at night.

Clean, convenient, beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to London for the Christmas holidays (two weeks). We absolutely loved our stay in Caroline's flat. The flat itself is very convenient to the Pimlico tube stop, as well as Victoria Station (major tube stop). Caroline has all the little things you would ever need, down to dish soap and Kleenex, and had stocked the small fridge with items for our stay to get us started. She was very quick to respond to questions, and when we had a small issue with the shower drain, the maintenance man came over right away to fix it. Overall, I can't recommend her flat more - we had such a good time and enjoyed the flat very much. Thank you, Caroline!

Perfect Location and lovely flat

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Pimlico. The flat is - as advertised - sophisticated yet cozy, the location offers walking access to countless stores and restaurants and a it's short walk to the tube. Caroline was very responsive, responded to any questions I had before arrival, and John greeted us and showed us around right when we arrived.

Great apartment! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated and well stocked apartment. Caroline even had a supply of snacks, fruit, eggs and bacon for our first breakfast in London. We really appreciated that! The beds were comfortable and having two bathrooms was a plus. It is an easy walk to either the Pimlico or Victoria Station tube stops, Victoria Station for trains, or Victoria Coach Station. It’s easy to either walk or take the tube to any site in the city. There is a grocery store and plenty of pubs/restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. Caroline checked in on us several times to make sure we were doing ok. Had a minor problem with the heat, which was corrected that same day. Loved this apartment!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Great experience. Location was ideal..easy walk to tube stations. Nice quiet and safe neighborhood with conveniences all around (restaurants, grocery store, etc). Accommodations very nice - perfect for our family of four (including two kids ages 12 and 13). Owner very attentive and responsive. Would definitely book again for our next visit.

A quaint cozy home in a beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was indeed a cozy, comfortable place! We were made very welcome upon our arrival, with little extras thrown in to make us feel at home (a bottle of wine, snacks, fruit, etc.). We were given directions to the nearest shopping districts, restaurants, and tube stations, and the bookcases in the flat were packed with guidebooks for London and light reading material for those days when our feet were tired and we came back early. There were two couples traveling together, and it was just the right size.

It was a great location, in a very pretty, pleasant neighborhood, and WHEN we go back to London, we will definitely book this same apartment. We highly recommend it!
