  1. Great property. Close to everything in London. 17 July 2017 - 18:43:00

    A little gem of a property, great use of space, well equipped and would highly recommend to others. It was like a home away from home! 18 July 2017 - 10:34:00

    Sarah Carter is a gracious and helpful property owner. For example, when she needed to enter the flat once to look at a drip outside a wall, she made sure she asked and came at a time when it was convenient for us. Another example was her sending me a SMS card to use when we arrived at Heathrow, trusting us to repay the cost. The flat has two bedrooms downstairs, both with bathrooms, one with a shower. Up the circular staircase is a sitting room that has a fold out sofabed, with a very nice shower room attached. We put my daughter, her husband, and my 20 month old granddaughter in this room and it was quite acceptable. My wife and I shared a room downstairs, next door to my 23 year old son. We all fit, but it was a little snug for my tastes. I think that for 4 people, the flat would be more than wonderful. On a near corner is an Italian Deli that is run by very nice and enjoyable people, and their prices are not only reasonable but to our way of thinking inexpensive. A Tesco's Express is across the street from that; just down the street is a bus stop, cleaners, and small variety shops, including a butchers. A larger Sainsbury's market is within walking distance, and there are nice Tapas, Indian, Pakistani, and Italian restaurants all with easy walking. Sarah will recommend Addison Lee, a car service, to occupants: she is right. They are great--get George, if you can, but all of the drivers were very accommodating. Farther away is Jamie's Italian (sustainable foods, owned by Jamie Oliver--a touch pricey to my thinking--150-200 GBPs for five adults trying to eat cheaply), the always enjoyable Wagamama's, and at the end of the 360 bus line is a massive Whole Foods (and the 360 moves through Sloane Square and all the shopping available there). The 24 bus would have been great except for construction and Brexit marches during our 6 weeks there. Short version is enjoy your stay with Sarah. Enjoy London. Enjoy eating well. 23 August 2016 - 16:51:00

    Loved staying at this flat in London. Sara was very accommodating and Lazlo was there to greet us, let us drop our bags, and gave us some great food and shopping recommendations. The beds were comfortable and we all really loved this beautiful place. 29 April 2017 - 08:42:00

    We loved this spot. Sarah was wonderfully helpful and available - she even called us a cab on our last day. The location was so non-touristy and neighborhood-y and close to great little inexpensive (!) restaurants, groceries, pharmacy, cafes, deli. We walked everywhere and never even took a bus or tube. Walked to Thames (five minutes), Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Harrods, Big Ben, Parliament buildings, Tate, Westminster Abbey, and lots more. If we had wanted to take the bus or tube, they were very close by. The house was impeccable and very comfortable. We are a 48-year-old and a 77-year-old ... but many other 77-year-olds might have trouble with the slippery, winding stairs. We would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended - we felt like real Londoners! 17 October 2013 - 14:48:18

    Our group of 6 enjoyed our stay at the Garden House. Good proximity to major attractions and transportation while being comfortably located in a nice neighborhood. The house is very well equipped with high quality items...added to the enjoyment of our stay. I would recommend this property and happily return if travels bring us back to London!! 19 October 2017 - 22:56:00

    Our family of 5 recently stayed at this wonderful flat in Central London. We especially loved the quiet, residential location, yet we were close to the Pimlico and Victoria stations and within walking distance of many of the major sites. My teenage children particularly liked the 3rd floor room with a couch, TV, and Wii, which provided ample space to unwind after busy days of sight seeing. When traveling internationally, we always look for rentals. What set this apart from the other wonderful places to stay was our most gracious and accommodating host. Sarah made us feel like we had a friend in London. She was accommodating with some challenging details of our stay, went above and beyond in answering questions, and provided groceries for our arrival. She even contacted me after we left to tell me that she had found my daughter's necklace and offered to mail it. When we return to London, we will definitely contact Sarah again! 09 July 2015 - 13:38:01

    We were a party of five -- two adults, two college students and one 12-year old. We found this place charming, clean and comfortable. The location was both convenient and quiet. It was great that we each had privacy as well as a place to hang out together. Booking, payment, check-in and checkout we're all seamless, and the owner, Sarah, was charming and helpful. Highly recommend. 19 August 2015 - 08:51:30

    This home is perfect. We had a wonderful week staying here. A nice small Market, street market, restaurants, bus stops, trains are all walking distance. We loved this home. Sarah welcomed us, explained everything about the home and where to go. The kitchen and baths were nicely stocked. There were 6 of us on a family trip. We would definitely stay here again! 23 October 2017 - 15:23:00

    Thank you Sarah for sharing your lovely home with us. The location of this rental is fantastic, close to transportation and within walking distance of many popular sites. We were a group of four women and we felt very safe even the nights we arrived home quite late I felt safe walking in the neighbourhood. There was plenty of room (we each had our own space) and loved having 3.5 bathrooms. Sarah was prompt to answer my many questions and was so kind to get us started by supplying milk and juice for our first breakfast. Thank you, I hope to return. 01 September 2016 - 01:49:17
  13. The Garden house was LOVELY! It is centrally located in Pimlico, with the underground and bus stops, shops and restaurants all within walking distance. (Try the cafe and the deli, right around the corners, and the take out curry place nearby! We have 3 kids (11, 8, and 2) and we had ample space and Sarah and Laszlo made sure the house had everything we needed! She made sure we had a baby car seat, pack and play, extra blankets, plenty of clean towels, toilet paper, and even provided us with some milk and juice. (There is a Tesco and Sainsburys nearby for when you run out). We slept on wonderfully fluffy and clean beds. We were also able to eat breakfast at home half our stay there, made tea and coffee and had plenty of plates/utensils. We were even able to do a load of laundry. The house is clean, quiet, and had lots of amenities. It was very easy to communicate with Sarah, and we cant wait to stay here again!!! 28 October 2017 - 06:35:00

    This lovely apartment was very comfortable for our 5 person group - three bedrooms including the upstairs loft, three bathrooms, a wonderful common area and kitchen, clothes washer/dryer. It is a little off the beaten path but very walkable to major attractions and public transport and there are lovely restaurants in the neighborhood. Everything we needed and more! Sarah was a wonderful host and very accommodating of our needs. Thank you, Sarah! 23 July 2017 - 15:23:00

    A spectacular home in a wonderful location. Couldn't have been better. 30 November 2017 - 20:36:00

    We truly enjoyed our stay here. The house is immaculate! Sarah has thought of everything and is furnished wonderfully! The beds are super comfy and the kitchen was had everything you need. We were surprised at how quiet the area was and great shops and restaurants and everything you need within walking distance. Highly recommend this charming accomodation. Thanks Sarah for everything! 05 December 2017 - 13:43:00

    Veramente una bella casa, dietro il centro di Londra ( Victoria ), comodissima per muoversi in metro e non. Casa con 4 BAGNI!! 3 piani di casa con tutti i comfort che uno possa immaginare, addirittura c'era netflix in ogni tv!! Padroni di casa gentili e disponibili. Uno dei miei pi piacevoli pernottamenti in giro per il mondo. Consiglio vivamente questa casa a tutti. 02 December 2017 - 11:50:00

    Prime location, close to everything: bus stops, tube station, restaurants, all within 5-10min range. You can go to major attractions within 1 bus/tube connections, or even walk if you are up to it, should take no more than 30 min. House is also loaded with everything, enough to make your stay comfortable. We were staying throughout the christmas weekend and make a good use of the kitchen provided. Space is adequate for 7, but i think 4 adult and 2 kids are the limit to have a nice and comfortable space for all. I would not hesitate to book the property, Sarah was quite helpful and patience to answer all of our questions and together with the property, they will leave you a memorable experience! 31 December 2017 - 03:47:00

    A very convenient and unexpectedly tranquil location at walking distance to Victoria Station and Tate Britain with a neighborhood supermarket just around the corner AND a very nice and clean apartment over 3 floors with 2 large beds and a comfortable sleeping couch, a very nice and fully equipped kitchen and enough bathrooms to eliminate any morning or evening queues (time is a precious good in London with so many things to do and places to see) AND a very kind landlady made this apartment the cozy base camp for an extended pre-Christmas weekend in London. Thank you 03 January 2018 - 20:56:00
