Perfect Vacation Stay for our Family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for ten nights at the end of July/beginning of August with my husband and our three kids ages 11-18, and it was great! Even though we arrived late from the U.S. on a Monday night, around 10:30 pm, Genie was there to give us a warm and friendly welcome. We told her beforehand that one daughter has celiac, and she very kindly asked if we needed her to buy anything special to eat or drink beforehand. We declined, but she did have bottled water, milk, and fruit anyway. She also directed us to a couple restaurants right at the corner that would still be open so that we could quickly go grab a bite to eat.

Another reviewer complained about the size of the apartment, and yes, it is small in size, but that is to be expected in a big city. And yes, the bedroom at the front over the restaurant is a little noisy at times, and the blinds in that one bedroom are not of the room-darkening variety, but this did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay. All homes have their quirks, and you simply adjust as needed.

Two of the bedrooms have a double bed, and one has a twin. There are two bathrooms with good showers; no bathtub. There is a washing machine for clothes but no dryer. However, Genie has racks in the apartment that you can use to hang wet towels or clothes for drying. There are three fans in the apartment, which we used to help dry the clothes that we hung. We rarely needed to turn on the air conditioner unit since the temps in London remained in the 70s during the day. On occasion we would turn on the AC, but only for about 30 minutes or so, just to take the edge off. Otherwise, the fans were fine to use.

The location of the apartment can't be beat. Just within a couple blocks you will find restaurants, pastry shops, cafes, a mini Tesco market, gelato place, a Starbucks, and the Holland Park Underground tube stop. You can even keep going and walk down to the next tube stop, at Notting Hill, which has more restaurants and shops. If you go one tube stop the other direction, to Shepherd's Bush, there is a huge Westfield shopping mall with many other stores and restaurants. And it was so easy to go downtown and to all the major London attractions from this location, usually only taking about 20-30 minutes. We used the Tube Map London Underground app to help us.

We enjoyed our stay here so much! Genie is so delightful and made us feel like family staying at home! Would definitely recommend this apartment to other visitors and families

Not what it seems

  • 2 of 5

This apartment is much smaller than it appears in the pictures. The whole place could have been cleaner. The kitchen has supplies but there is no space to actually cook in it. There was no coffee, sugar etc. as stated in the description and only one small bowl of fruit in the refrigerator which is located in a closet in the next room. The balcony is about 24 inches wide and the wall is about 5 feet high so - it isn't a usable balcony at all. The TV is hung on a wall where it can only be seen if you sit on one side of the table you see in the picture. A couch was squeezed into the bedroom as if stored there, making it necessary to turn sideways to get to the other side of the bed. It was too tight to sit on it. The area is wonderful and we enjoyed that aspect and still enjoyed our London visit but this apartment is not at all what it appears to be.

Owner's Response: Barbara & her groups, retired teachers in their 80's are pleasant guests to have in my apartment.I made particular attention to them because of their needs;such as 6 towels for each person, extra hand wash lotions & helped them carry their luggage.The TV was placed on the wall for everybody can see fr. the sofa bed or at the dining table. I put 2 sitter sofa in one bedroom for some to sit down w /privacy. There was a welcome pact of fruits, coffees, teas. cereals, milk, water for them but not for whole week. Kitchen is comfortable to cook but not for parties.The terrace is 4 ' 2 as required by health & safety. Thank you for **

Location is within 3 minutes walk to Holland Park Tube Station and is accessible to restaurants, supermarkets, coffee shops yet it is quiet and good neighbourhood. This Apartment is clean, well equip kitchen, bathrooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are comfortable to sleep on combined with fresh bed linens. Genie is a good Hosts and made us feel at home. My family with 3 children will certainly be back and highly recommend this Apartment.

Great location, well prepared apartment with friendly, attentive owner - Needs one critical update

  • 3 of 5

The owner, Genie, was very friendly and had prepared the apartment with good basics - paper products, bread/milk/coffee/cereal/fruit, well-equipped modern kitchen & baths, very neat and clean. The location is fantastic - 3 minute walk to the tube with coffee shops, mini-market & local pub in a beautiful neighborhood. The ONLY major drawback were the beds - they need to be replaced (springs coming thru, extremely uncomfortable) and the 'single' bed is not really a bed at all but hard as a rock 'futon' type of material. IF the mattresses were replaced, I would definitely rent this place again.

Owner's Response: Dear Liza, Thank you for your feedback. Although the mattress (semi -orthophaedic ) are only 1 year old I will definitely change them. Kind regards, Genie
