Lovely home in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and two teenage children for the week before Easter and we were more than pleased with this home. First off, the location is amazing. Victoria Station is a 5 minute walk away - our city exploration and bus tours all started from there. There are a bunch of restaurants and grocery stores close by. Other major sites are also walkable - we comfortably walked back loaded with shopping bags from Sloan Square on a couple of occasions, as an example.

The home itself is warm, comfortable and well-equipped. We really appreciated having the extra space - so much better than an expensive and cramped hotel room! The linens were clean, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the house is in great shape. It was a perfect retreat after touring the city and crowds. We had a wonderful family vacation to London, and staying in this home was a significant part of our experience.

The owners were helpful and responsive and very easy to work with. I highly recommend this home!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here and highly recommend it. Two best features of the house are (1) the lovely private back garden, and (2) the very central location. You can walk to Westminster Abbey, Hyde Park, the West End, Chelsea. Excellent food shopping and restaurants are close by.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This lovely home is located a short walk from Victoria station, blocks away from 2 grocery stores. There are lots of pubs and restaurants nearby.

We had nice weather so we were able to take advantage of the lovely flower-filled garden equipped with table and chairs.

The kitchen is well equipped and we made use of the convenient washer and dryer. The beds and sleeping areas were quite comfortable.

One problem we had was that the third floor shower never really worked. After letting it run for about 10 minutes we never got more than a cold drip, leaving us with just one shower for our entire group. We worked that out by staggering our showers times and there were ample toilets and sinks. Also, the house is very dated but clean and comfortable.

We were met by Ana who was extremely friendly and accommodating (we arrived late, about 6pm). Colin made us feel comfortable with the arrangements and he was in close contact prior to our arrival.

Owner's Response: We are glad you liked the house and location but are terribly sorry you had trouble with one of the showers. I have used it and it is working well now. We think it must have been an airlock. We have arranged for a plumber to check it and will ask him to fit a pump to avoid this happening again. Many thanks for letting us know about it.
