Chic one bedroom Victorian terraced apartment on quiet street, home from home feel, very close to Olympia Exhibition Hall, Holland Park, Kensington High Street. Heathrow in 25 mins. Central line access to central London. Free wifi, and a warm welcome. Maclise Road is a beautiful, light-filled first floor apartment forming part of an impressive Victorian house in the very popular ‘village’ of Brook Green in Kensington Olympia, within easy walking distance of High Street Kensington. The apartment features a beautiful sitting room with unusually high ceilings and windows– giving the apartment an impressively spacious feeling – beautiful cornicing, a lovely south facing balcony and wonderful old wooden floors. This property is a dedicated, professionally run holiday full-time rental business, and not someone's home. Though we have made it extremely homely! The accommodation comprises of an open plan living room/kitchen with exceptionally high ceilings, bathroom and double bedroom. There is a private balcony to the front which is accessed through double doors from the living room. Maclise Road is a quiet residential street very close to the Olympia Exhibition Hall. This spacious apartment has a large living room and separate kitchen area with additional seating. There is a well equipped modern kitchen with fridge, oven & hob, brand new cutlery and crockery, and full cooking equipment. There is a new TV in the sitting room with all freeview channels, and DVD. Also a Bowers & Wilkins ‘Zeppelin’ docking station and Wi-Fi broadband access. Maclise Road has a beautifully proportioned bedroom with high ceilings and a king size bed (made by Loaf, one of the comfiest beds you will ever sleep on!) and plenty of storage space. The bathroom has modern bath and shower, and plenty of hot water. Beautiful White Company towels, and 400 thread count Egyptian bed linen are provided There is security intercom access from the street below. The property is cleaned before and after your arrival and Ana the housekeeper cleaner is available for additional cleaning if required. There is also a washing machine, ironing board, and bicycle available at a Boris Bike stand just 40 yards away. There is a plethora of local shops and pubs in Brook Green, and also a short walk away on High Street Kensington you will find a huge array of world class restaurants and big-name shops. The new mega-mall at Westfield (the biggest in Europe) with its extensive retail, restaurant, leisure and transport facilities is also within easy walking distance. This area of West London is within easy reach of Heathrow Airport (20 mins by car or taxi). There are many nearby Tube stations for access to central London, and one of the best gastro pubs in London, the Havelock Tavern, is in close proximity. We look forward to welcoming you to your home from home...

    This flat was a perfect place for us in this beautiful city. It is situated in a little street, very silence! But there is all you need: nice flat, supermarkets, restaurants (Indian, Pubs or Fish and Chips - very good!), Bus stops and Underground stations. You need only 20 minutes to Heathrow and 30 minutes to Trafalgar Square. It was perfect! Thank you for all! 27 April 2017 - 09:59:00

    My husband and I had a wonderful one week stay at Maclise Rd.The home was spacious and tastefully decorated. Elizabeth and Hugo were very helpful and accommodating. On arrival we were welcomed by the lovely Ana ( housekeeper) and given instructions plus helpful tips regarding local shops etc .Getting to know this neighbourhood was a real treat for us , and returning to apartment at the end of day was like being at home .Cant thank our hosts enough. We plan to be back . 27 April 2017 - 21:29:00

    This apartment has undergone an amazing redevelopment. New kitchen, bathroom, really lovely sitting room. One thing that attracted me as opposed to many other listings was the fact that this felt like home. The owner was there when we arrived and she was lovely! There was a detailed booklet letting us know instructions for everything and we didn't have to guess. All the beds were super comfortable with the king size bed and sofa bed, and beautiful bathroom) Around the corner is a great little general store and a fantastic wine shop and also a cafe and deli. Olympia is minutes away. We stumbled on a restaurant that had been open only a couple of days and wow, the food was stunning it's called the Havelock Tavern. The flat is really well located and it's easy to get around no matter if you use the tube, bus, Uber or Black cabs. 10 May 2017 - 14:21:00

    Tiny ants in the kitchen on the floor and counter.More comfortable seating for the living room. Difficult to take a shower without getting the floor wet. Bathroom needs a shower curtain! 2 sets of keys for when occupants separate. Dead bolt for the door-someone tried to get in.(wrong apt.) 26 April 2017 - 11:01:00

    The apartment had just recently been decorated and looked amazing. Very high standard of finish and it was immaculate. Tastefully presented and close to some good bars and restaurants. Good communication with owners and would certainly recommend. 24 May 2017 - 07:58:00

    We wanted a quaint, typical-looking English flat to stay in and that's what we got! Walking down the street we expected Mary Poppins or Dick Van Dyke to appear! This flat was really clean, had all we needed, was in a great location - about a five-minute walk to one Tube station and about a fifteen-minute walk to another, grocery stores and restaurants all around. Hugo was great to deal with and very responsive to our needs. We would definitely recommend staying here! 01 June 2017 - 15:05:00

    Highly recommend this property that is in a great location by bus, tub or taxi to all London attractions. On the same block there are restaurants, mini-grocery stores, and even a dry cleaner. An additional plus is the bike rental rack less than a block from the flat which you simply use a credit card to use at your leisure. It is an easy tub ride from the airport combined with either a short bus or taxi ride to the flat. Windows at both sides of the flat allow great air-flow and cool temperatures through-out the day. Kitchen is very well supplied with any cooking a guest would like to do. We had a great stay and will keep this property in mind for future visits to London. 31 July 2017 - 14:26:00
