About Minnie & Guy

We love living in London - there's so much to do - you'll always have something exciting to plan for! We also love travelling ourselves and meeting new people and we try to get away as often as we can with our two boys (school holidays are the only limiting factor!). We hope you'll come to London and discover just how amazing this great city really is!

Minnie & Guy purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Minnie & Guy chose London

We decided to buy our apartment in Kingston-Upon Thames as we think it has the best of both worlds! An oasis on the edge of the City! Situated just a 5 minute walk from Thames river and parks (Close to open spaces of Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Home Park and Hampton Court Palace), The apartment is located moments from the banks of the River as well as walking distance from extensive shopping and entertainment facilities including the Bentalls Centre. Kingston bars and shops are on the doorstep. Some of London’s best Theme Parks are only a short train ride away! Central London is only 25 minutes by train bringing the buzz and excitement of the shops, theatres, clubs and cinemas to you in less than half and hour!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was very modern, very comfortable, and is very cozy. The nearest train station (Kingston) is just a 3 minute walk and travel to London is very convenient. The shopping in Kingston is amongst some of the best we have seen in London. The apartment is situated a short walk to the River Thames and stunning Richmond Park. We loved Kingston and didn’t want to leave at the end of our trip.

An unexpected oasis in the City! Thank you Maggie & Giovanni for a wonderful stay in your lovely apartment – we felt very welcome and very safe. The apartment is based in a luxury gated complex situated around two large and beautifully maintained landscaped gardens. The biggest benefit for us was the great shopping on the doorstep!

We had a great vacation in your apartment and are very pleased to have met you, we are very grateful for your kind attention and for allowing us to enjoy your property and we hope to return next year.

Great location close to town centre and public transport

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is really well located just 5mins walk from Kingston station and just a few minutes from buses, shops, restaurants and river. It is well furnished and has everything you need including car parking on site. It's on the first floor and mainly looks out onto other apartments but it does have access to shared gardens. It was really helpful to have a few essentials such as tea and milk provided on arrival.

Comfortable, convenient, warm

  • 4 of 5

The flat was very comfortable and I found the location convenient - close to shops, railway station, supermarket, park. It was clean and all in good working order. It is not the easiest place to find at first, and you need a key to get into the complex, so wouldn't be ideal if you wanted visitors. On the other hand it feels very safe. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. It was very cold during my stay but the apartment was always warm and needed minimal heating.

We were very impressed with the apartment. It had everything our small family required and the location was fantastic. We were within walking distance to everything, and in the heart of Kingston. Maggie and Giovanni were lovely.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place, very well kitted out and in the best location. Minutes walk from shopping, the river Thames, bus stops and the train station, with buses from Heathrow stopping literally outside the door. The flat itself is very secure, with a good gym and it has everything that you need in it.

We are a family of 4 (2 kids under the age of 6) and the flat was perfect.

We will be back!
