Perfect for Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sister and I had a wonderful time! The apartment is as described and Yvonne went out of her way to assist us with collecting our bags upon our arrival (which was hours before check in time) and even provided us with a lift to Notting Hill where we had lunch and shopped until the apartment was ready for us. Having 2 full bathrooms was great! Location of apartment was wonderful and we always felt safe. Public transportation is easily accessible and the Londis store located downstairs was very convenient. Would highly recommend this property!

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

First let me begin by thanking our hostess Yvonne for such a warm welcome to the apartment in Kensington. Her friendliness made us feel as though we had known her for years. She familiarized us with apt, WIFI & TV & water pressure pump. There is a flight of stairs up as you come through the front door, then opens to living area & adjacent kitchen & terrace. There is a 2nd set of stairs leading to the 2 bedrooms (1 ensuite bath) the other down the hall near 2nd bedroom. Rooms are bright and airy, beds comfortable,. Yvonne gave us suggestions on nearby grocery stores on Kensington High St, and Londis next door (very convenient) and found they carried dairy free products. The Crown & Sceptre pub on the corner serves up a delicious Fish & Chips and variety of beer and has an exceptional staff. The apt is fully equipped and exceptionally clean. Our party of 3 enjoyed the living room sofas as we melted into them at the end of our daily adventures around London. The terrace doors open out to give a wonderful cross breeze from kitchen thru living area (great for the summer hot days) Apt location & neighborhood is quiet in the evenings & is a 5 min walk to bus routes off of KHS. Take it to KHS tube station or even walk if you want. Holland Park is nearby & a little further Hyde Park & Kensington Palace Gardens, We enjoyed our 1 week holiday in London & took a day trip to Windsor Castle via Paddington Station train, and used Paddington in & out of London from Heathrow (take Heathrow Express) We were extremely happy with our stay in this lovely apartment & hope to return again in future, & will recommend this property to family and friends. Thank you Yvonne for making the rental process so easy and for your welcoming smile and good cheer.

Loved this flat!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful spot and we are so grateful to have found it. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the property manager could not have been nicer! While there were more stairs than we'd realized (to get up to the flat and then up to the bedrooms), this was not a problem for our family and we loved that the back patio was raised up a floor and private. I enjoyed my coffee there each morning before a packed day in London, and it was a real treat to spend a week in this lovely part of Kensington. We LOVED getting to know Holland Park and the beautiful streets around it, and once we got the bus routes down we found this location to be absolutely ideal! We hope to return in the near future!

exactly as advertised. Great family property

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, we were a family of four and were very comfortable. Great outdoor space. Walking distance to Holland Park which was beautiful. Pub at the corner was excellent. Convenience store a lifesaver. Flat was exactly as advertised. Wonderful trip!

great location and overall good deal

  • 4 of 5

Kensington is a great location near Holland Park, shopping on Kensington High Street and Kensington Palace and Gardens. The apartment was quiet at night (no noise from neighbors and minimal street noise). The apartment was clean (for most part), inviting and provided enough room to spread out. It also has the deck/outdoor area which is a definite plus. The only downside was some deferred maintenance in the bathrooms. One bathroom has the wooden window sill butting into the shower. It is rotted out on the end with black mold growing on it. Black mold on the ceiling of the other shower. Clean up the black (and some pink) mold that looks a wee bit unhealthy to be around and this place is the cats meow . With the mold, you're like "eh good deal overall but, darn, I wish I wasn't hanging out in a place with mold".

Owner's Response: I am so sorry. This should never have been - I just wish you had pointed this out at the time and I would have immediately attended to the problems. The mould is being fixed now as i write and a new sill is on its way! Back to the Cats Miow! I am so happy you loved the location and other aspects of the flat and hope one day you will return .
