About listing

A home that has it all. Exceptional location, quiet road, outside space and tasteful interior. Rosary Gardens is a pretty road within an easy walk of South Kensington, Fulham Road, Kings Road and Earls Court. The flat is both sophisticated and quirky, a well equipped kitchen is open plan to the reception room. A great area to relax and recharge. Stylish plantation shutters dress the inside of the window. Comfortable beds and snowy white cotton sheets conjure sweet dreams of revelations tomorrow's exploring will bring. There are amazing places to eat locally, Cambio de Tercio is an award winning Spanish restaurant, Star of India is an Indian dining institution with a classic ceiling fresco. Start with a cocktail at Nam Long Le Shaker at 159 Old Brompton Road. Wander along to South Kensington there are lots of al fresco cafeterias where you can watch the world go by. Have a real ale at the Anglesea Arms pub, a favourite of Charles Dickens and D H Lawrence. It's even rumoured that the Great Train Robbery was planned here. Serves great gastro pub food and is packed every night, 15 Selwood Terrace. Cheers.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Rosary Gardens. It's a nice, clean, well maintained apartment in a very good location, easy walk to Gloucester Road tube and grocery stores and restaurants. We had awesome Indian food from Noor Jahan around the corner and cheap take away pizzas from Wildwood (only 5 each). The apartment is garden level but has still has good light, and is reasonably quiet. Kitchen was well stocked (olive oil, salt, etc.), appliances were easy to use. A few things in the apartment were a bit "rustic" (difficult radiator, dining table) but everything worked and it was definitely above average across the board. The second bedroom is pretty small. It was perfect for our three year old daughter but would be pretty tight with the trundle pulled out. Beds were nice though and the larger bedroom is a great size and there is available closet space if you are staying awhile. Note: there is no freezer that we could find (which is fine if you don't buy ice cream!) We are expats living in Europe, we travel a lot, and because we have a three year old we never get hotels - we always rent a place, and this is one of the better ones we have had. I would definitely stay there again. If you book it you should ask if a cleaning person will visit the apartment during your stay, and if so, on which day. With most rentals we have had no one comes in unless requested but at this one we came back one day to find the place tidied up. They did send an email but it came after we had left the apartment for the day. It was nice to have things tidied, but I would prefer to know ahead of time. The agency was generally very responsive and easy to work with, we had a problem with the heat and they were keen to make sure it had been resolved for us. We also used the car hire they require for late evening arrivals and the driver was very nice and made sure we were able to get into the apartment before leaving. 26 May 2016 - 12:58:27

    Great location. Apartment nothing special but had everything you'd need. Second bedroom very small - overall apartment better described as suitable for 2+1. Perhaps could've been a little cleaner - but nothing major and it is essentially someone's own "house" let out. Check in and check out well managed with very good communication. 11 June 2016 - 21:25:12

    Era la prima volta con Homelidays e siamo molto soddisfatti. Il responsabile dell'agenzia, Nick, sempre stato disponibile a rispondere ai miei quesiti ed anche Keren, che abbiamo incontrato al nostro arrivo, ci sembrata cordiale e pronta per eventuali necessit. L'appartamento proprio come si vede dalle foto: luminoso anche se al piano interrato, bella zona giorno con una cucina fornita, una camera matrimoniale calda ed accogliente, la seconda cameretta con una porta finestra per andare nel cortiletto ed infine un bel bagno con vasca e un box doccia nuovo e ben rifinito. Tutto pulito (addirittura a met settimana venuta la signora a fare le pulizie) e funzionante (tv con molti canali e wi-fi senza problemi). Il quartiere molto signorile (a pochi passi c' un concessionario Ferrari..) e tranquillo (a qualsiasi ora) e con tutti i servizi: la metro di Gloucester a neanche 5 minuti, tante possibilit per pranzo e cena (noi abbiamo apprezzato molto la cucina di Wildwood ma si puo' spaziare dall'indiano allo spagnolo passando per la Steak House...). C' anche un comodo market proprio di fronte alla Stazione Metro oltre a farmacia e tanti bar/caff. Torneremo a Londra, che davvero splendida, e con ogni probabilit cercher un altro appartamento sempre con questa struttura. 01 July 2016 - 08:11:00

    Perfect location for our small family to explore all the London has to offer. Flat is located in a charming neighborhood with easy access to several Tube stations, groceries, and restaurants. We enjoyed having a clean, comfortable "home base" when we returned from each busy day of sightseeing and exploration. The modern kitchen and bathroom, were much appreciated, as was the easy access to WiFi. Very professional staff helped with arrangements, advise, checkin and checkout on a timely basis. 13 July 2016 - 12:09:00

    We just returned from visiting London and have stayed in this appartment for two weeks. We were greated profesionally bij Caroline who was waiting when we arrived. The appartment is really comfortable. Beds are very good in the big bedroom. The small bedroom with trundle we think is only usable for kids. when the trundle bed is out you cannot close the door anymore. the trundle bed is also a bit wobbly (think thats the correct word) so we could only let the youngest one sleep there...the oldest one could not turn and twist because then it would flip! There is a washer dryer combi available. As you arrive you get 4 huge towels. though very comfortable the dryer can only have 1,5 kg of laudry so drying two of these big towels takes a long time.....we asked for more so we did not have to wash every day...especially with small kids daily and sometimes twice daily showers are mandatory ;) Nick and Ed from a place like home are great! we had some trouble with flushing the toilet and informed them in the morning. In the evening when we arrived home everything was repaired! Chapeau! we do had some frustrations regarding the owners cleaning lady....she suddenly showed up early in the morning and we were not even dressed yet. she only speaks spanish so we were pretty was she....on the day of departure we had an agreement with nick to leave around 11 oclock. surprise surprise the cleaning lady showed up again...we contacted nick and decided to leave an hour early but it was really uneasy again. we advise future guest to aks for date an time regarding the cleaning lady's visits!! The whole situation was definitely not Nick's mistake!!The location is really great!! Lots of perfect restaurants! A very nice italian restaurant is on old brompton road (5 minute walk) and is called cacciari's. The owner is really friendly and everything is possible!! Indian Thali was also very good as was the tapas restaurant on brompton or the steak and Co on gloucester. We would definitely visit this appartment again. Thanks Nick and Ed for all you help and the really pleasant contact. You guy did a great job!! 09 August 2016 - 08:49:29

    Todo estaba tal y como se describa en el anuncio. Tanto las instalaciones como el trato de las personas que nos han atendido muy correcto. Sin duda muy recomendable. 01 September 2016 - 16:08:00

    The apartment was exactly as described and reviewed. The apartment is spotless, the beds are comfortable (the second bedroom small but fine), the kitchen well-supplied, the living room cozy, the water hot. The washer-dryer is a welcome addition. There are ample closets and storage space. A 5-7 minute walk through a charming neighborhood brings you to the Gloucester Road Tube station. We came to London for museum shows and got where we wanted to go quickly. Supermarkets, pubs, and restaurants are nearby. We were two friends but the apartment would work well for a small family. We would certainly stay there again. 25 November 2016 - 18:13:00

    Great location easy access to 2 tube stations Gloucester Road or South Kensington Station and 2 bus lines (C1 and the 430). Several grocery stores and restaurants within 2 blocks of the flat. The apartment is garden level but has still has good light, and is reasonably quiet. The neighborhood is a very quite location with lots of nice cars to look at BMW, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini,etc. Master bedroom has a king size bed, a bit firm for our liking but gets the job done, there is available closet space if you are staying awhile. The second bedroom is pretty small, perfect for one person. There is a wash/dryer combination that is very convenient. Wifi and cable TV for those that have kids/teenagers worked perfectly. Nick was (A Place Like Home rental company) was very responsive and easy to work with. Check-in was very smooth, meet Karen at the flat. 18 June 2016 - 01:36:20

    No es una casa, es un stano. Cuando reservamos el anuncio indicaba dos baos, pero solo hay uno. Limpieza, lo que ve la suegra. Haba muchsimos pececillos de plata. Pelusas para aburrir. Se podrian esmerar ms teniendo en cuenta el precio por da. El barrio bien. Muy tranquilo. 07 May 2016 - 17:41:00

    A cosy property conveniently located in S Kensington, with easy access to both S Kensington and Gloucester Rd tube stations. Convenient restaurants and markets just around the corner. Booking was efficient and our greeter was welcoming and informative 05 January 2017 - 01:48:00

    The flat was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well laid out, and well equipped (one small complaint). We love the area around the Gloucester Road tube station! Places to eat, buy groceries and can walk to Royal Albert Hall, Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. The agent on check in met us on time and was quite helpful. Check out was supposed to be self check out, but an agent showed up unannounced and unidentified. Damage deposit was high for a 3 day stay and the refund was slow coming back. The picture of the building is misleading (centered on the 2nd floor window when the flat is below ground). The Nespresso machine was either broken, plugged or requires specific training to make it work (several coffee places on the way to the tube station, so London was spared any ugly caffeine withdrawal incidents) The flat was well laid out, roomy and convenient. Love the area and will be back. 27 February 2017 - 12:46:00

    We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was perfectly located between South Kensington and Gloucester Road stations. Plenty of room and very well appointed. 25 March 2017 - 19:47:00

    Die Lage dieser Kellerwohnung ist wirklich gut, damit hrt das Positive aber schon auf. Obwohl wir in unserer Anfrage eindeutig von 4 Mnnern gesprochen haben, wurde uns nicht gesagt, dass das vierte Bett ein sehr wackeliges Beistellbett ist. Wir mussten erst Mbel aus dem kleinen Zimmer rumen um es berhaupt aufstellen zu knnen. Auch sonst sieht die Wohnung auf den Fotos besser aus als sie ist. In der Beschreibung ist von zwei Bdern die Rede, anscheinend ist damit aber lediglich Dusche und Badewanne in einem Bad gemeint, wir haben auf alle Flle kein zweites Bad gefunden. Es gab im Bad aber auch noch feuchtigkeitsliebende Mitbewohner und richtig sauber war es auch nicht. Zu dem Mitbewohnern sei noch zu erwhnen, dass es im Mllraum vor der Haustre unter der Treppe zu dieser Kellerwohnung leider auch noch Ratten gab. Interessant war auch die Heizung im Kleiderschrank im Hauptschlafzimmer, aber die hrt man wirklich kaum. In der Kche war alles was man fr die Zubereitung des Frhstcks brauchte, mehr will man ja wohl auch nicht bei einer Stdtetour. Alles in allem haben wir ein tolles Wochenende in London verbracht, es ist ja eine tolle Stadt. 12 May 2017 - 12:15:00

    Die Deutschen jammern bekanntlich auf sehr hohem Niveau....! Das wissen wir auch, weil hohes Niveau fr uns Standard ist. Aber Spel - die Wohnung ist im Souterrain ( also im Keller ), was fr London gar nicht ungewhnlich ist....Wir haben sehr viele dieser Wohnungsarten gesehen. JEDER hat eine Treppe in den Keller ! Es ist nicht vergleichbar mit unserer Art zu wohnen. Aber wer nach London geht, wei in der Regel worauf er sich einlsst. Wir hatten eine schne, saubere kleine Wohnung, die mehr geboten hat als ein Hotel dieser Preisklasse. Und auerdem hatten wir viel mehr Platz, als in einem engen Hotelzimmer. Ich wrde sagen : empfehlenswert - tu ich aber nicht, damit mir keiner den Termin fr das nchste Jahr wegnimmt..... 09 July 2017 - 00:11:00

    Our Rosary Gardens lower floor flat was very well-situated and had all the amenities we required. Nick was very accommodating and was able to arrange early access to the flat for us which really helped us make the most of our 3 short days in London. We enjoyed exploring the area and access to the Tube was a short walk away. There are many shops & food stores quite close - including a Ferrari dealership up the road (as we came to England to take in the 25th anniversary Goodwood Festival of Speed, finding this was a nice, unexpected surprise). The flat was a nice, clean, relaxing and comfortable home base when we finished our explorations at the end of the day - also very good for a quick rest stop between trips out. Recommend you check it out! 29 July 2017 - 01:29:00

    Very nice apartment, comfortable beds and good shower, with all we needed to enjoy our stay. The description in the app is rather misleading because it says 2 bathrooms but there is 1 bathroom with 2 showers. Anyway the apartment is lovely and the location is great. 03 October 2017 - 10:43:00

    This is a charming 2-bedroom flat located in the heart of upscale South Kensington and is close to numerous pubs, restaurants, museums, and grocery stores, as well as two tube stations, Gloucester Road and South Kensington. We could walk or take the tube everywhere. No need for a cab whatsoever. The flat itself was very comfortable. It is important to note, however, that it is located below the street level, so one must carry luggage up and down a narrow flight of stairs to reach the front door. Despite being located below ground, the flat still receives plenty of natural light that flows through the windows, and once inside, it does not feel apparent that the flat is garden level. The kitchen, which is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, hob, dishwasher and under-counter fridge (no freezer), opens to the living room where there is a sofa, loveseat, ottoman, television, and dining room table with 6 chairs. While the seating in the living room is very comfortable, it is in need of a good cleaning. The master bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. The second bedroom is smaller and contains a twin bed with a trundle. Unfortunately, the room is so small that the door must be kept wide open in order for one to use the trundle. The second bedroom has sliders that open to an outside private terrace. The bathroom contains a very large stall shower, a separate oversized tub, as well as a sink and toilet. There is also a small clothes washer/dryer unit in the front closet, as well as an iron, ironing board, and hairdryer. The flat is also equipped with wifi, which worked very well. Nick and Ed were extremely helpful, communicative, and accommodating throughout the entire booking process. We had to change our vacation dates after booking the flat due to a change in flight plans, and this did not create a problem at all. Also, I accidentally left behind our wedding album in the flat, which I had taken along with us to show to friends in London whom we had met on our honeymoon 23 years ago, and Ed went the extra mile and retrieved it for us. Fortunately, our daughter, who was studying abroad in London at the time was able to pick it up at their office and bring it home to us when she returned after the semester. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in London, and the flat made our stay extremely comfortable. If we ever get the opportunity to travel to London again, we will definitely contact Nick and Ed. 27 December 2016 - 19:03:31

    There were a couple of minor maintenance issues which were dealt with promptly and professionally by the managing agent, Nick. 05 January 2018 - 15:21:00
