    My sister and I spent an amazing 8 days early December 2012. The apartment was perfect bright, sunny and very comfortable. All the amenities of home! The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you needed to prepare meals. Very quiet, residential area we felt very safe no matter how late we came home. Great location the flat was within easy walking distance to Kensington High Street & Shepherds Bush tube stations and bus stops. There were lots of shops and restaurants within the area. Close to major attractions was able to walk to Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. The apartment is on the top floor of a house and you must climb 3 flights of stairs may be an issue if you have mobility problems. Maria was fantastic just an email away if you had any questions. She was in town for 3 days and we were very comfortable sharing the flat she is very warm and inviting and we felt as if we were visiting an old friend. The highest compliment I can give is that I felt as if I was staying in my own home. I will definitely come back! 13 December 2012 - 18:06:16

    It was a pleasure to stay at the nice, comfortable, and convenient flat. Located in a quiet neighborhood and also very close to the tube/bus. Communication with the owner was excellent as well. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone. Thanks!! 14 May 2013 - 15:44:23

    A clean and comfortable, modest apartment with all necessary fittings for a easy going and pleasant stay. Information supplied consistent with the property interior - exterior of block soon to undergo upgrade. Close to trains (3 - 15 minute walks depending on which of 5 subway lines required) and buses (5 minutes for 3 main routes). Plenty of good quality restaurants and pubs within 5 minute walk. Owner answered comments quickly - indeed may be present (share of property is a condition) at times. 18 June 2013 - 06:40:36

    My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and found the apartment to be perfect for our needs. The bedroom was spacious with lots of windows, and the bathroom was really clean and modern. The shower pressure was also awesome. Our only wish was that the bedroom had a fan because it would have been nice to get some sort of breeze while we were trying to sleep during the warm nights. The owner, Maria, was actually there during our entire stay which ended up being really nice because she could give us advice on restaurants and public transport and general London-stuff. You have full access to the kitchen and living room (which has a TV), and Maria is really good about making you feel comfortable and not making you feel obligated to chit-chat after a long day of seeing the sites. She generally stayed out of the way and we came and went as we pleased. This was our first time to London and we found the location to be great for us- out of the busy touristy areas- but within an easy walk of shopping, grocery stores, parks, and bus and train transport. There are also some tasty restaurants nearby- our favorite was the Hand and Flower for some quality pub food. Maria was really responsive to our emails and our questions which made booking the place so much more pleasant. We would definitely recommend this place! 28 July 2013 - 15:07:08

    Excellent place to stay. Our host very welcoming. We got used to the stairs, which were quite steep and narrow. 23 September 2013 - 07:56:41

    A wonderful apartment in an excellent neighborhood with everything you need. My daughter and I stayed here for a week and it was fabulous the trains, buses and tubes were only short distances away, enabling us to get everywhere we wanted to go with ease. Maria the owner is very sweet and accommodating, and the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The outside of the building and hallway/staircase was under construction while we were there, but once thats completed, itll be perfect. Wed stay here again in a heartbeat! 25 October 2013 - 04:31:15

    The flat is located a little far from the sights, theaters etc. It took about 30 to 40 minutes from a center of London. However, it is located in a safe neighborhood, so no problem walking back at 11:30 p.m. The interior is beautifully decorated and has all the facilities. I liked the room looks like a interior magazine very much, so sometimes I just wanted to stay there and read books. Although the neighborhood is quiet, the bed room faces on to a busy road. Light sleepers maybe disturbed by the traffic. However, I slept very well. The owner is a very kind person and quickly responded my inquiry. I recommend this apartment for women traveling alone. 31 July 2014 - 13:30:36

    We spent 8 days at this lovely location. Private room and Bath. Very friendly and accommodating Professional owner. Several local restaurants near the location and easy access with a short walk to several underground and bus stops. If the owner is there the week of your visit she is very helpful with local information and thoroughly familiar with London. One of our most memorable and fun vacations in Europe. 27 September 2014 - 15:33:48

    For my month-long visit to London, this modern, well-appointed flat with very comfortable en-suite bedroom proved to be excellent. Photos give a good idea of what it is like. Nice modern kitchen; great shower; clean and well-maintained with weekly cleaning included. West Ken location is fine with connections via the Olympia Overground (5 mins walk away) to West Brompton tube or to parts of North London. Convenient 49 or C1 buses are 2 mins away, the 49 to High St Ken tube, about a 15 min walk from the flat. 10 to 12 min walk to Shepherd's Bush tube or buses. Excellent local shop on the corner with a wide range of food etc at competitive prices; dry cleaner and laundry there too. Overall, highly recommended. If you have a smart phone, upload Citymapper app. It's an excellent means of getting bus and tube info and even gives bus departure times from Holland Rd stop. 12 November 2014 - 16:43:45

    I spent five nights in early April at the flat. Maria was there the first night and it was so nice to get to meet her, originally we didn't think we would overlap. The flat is in a perfect location, easy walk to Shepherd's Bush on the Circle Line and an easy walk to Kensington High Street. The apartment fronts on a very quiet residential street, but the bedroom overlooks a very busy road. If you like to sleep with the window open, like I do, you might want to think about ear plugs for the traffic noise. That was a very minor detail in an otherwise splendid situation. Traveling as a single woman I can highly recommend Maria's flat as safe, comfortable, well-appointed and convenient. 28 April 2015 - 14:14:17

    It's a great place to stay, and Maria was a wonderful hostess. The flat is convenient to both bus and tube transit, great places to eat, grocery shopping, etc. The neighborhood is very friendly and easy to get around, and not far from a couple of nice parks. Maria is full of information on what to see and do, and the flat has a very well laid out kitchen,bed and bath, and really nice living area. We had a great time, and absolutely no problems. 09 July 2015 - 11:45:46

    I absolutely loved my stay for 2 weeks at this apartment. It was exactly as advertised with tube and bus stations within short walking distance. There is also a huge mall right next to the tube station. It is a very safe area with two locked doors. The apartment was great but what was even better was the owner, Maria. She was there with me for a few days in the beginning and a few days at the end of my stay. She was very helpful to me and very generous. She even took me on a car tour around London one afternoon. She was fabulous. I can't say enough good things about the place. I was very lucky as this was my first choice. If you want to explore London this is the place for you. 12 July 2015 - 17:01:35

    My daughter and I stayed at Maria's flat for four nights while we toured London and surrounding area. Maria happened to be home, which added to our delightful stay as she is beautiful inside and out. The flat is well kept, peaceful, and comfortable. It's walking distance to Holland Park, Kensington Palace, and other wonderful places to visit. Nice restaurants and lots of shopping nearby, too. The flat is also at walking distance to the tube's Shepherd's Bush station, which gets you anywhere in London you want to go. (If you're new to London, get the tube app or city mapper app on your phone. Very helpful!) Altogether, Julie and I thought the flat and its location were perfect for our stay. Hope you enjoy it as well. 26 October 2015 - 15:09:37

    This cosy and very bright first floor well managed apartment was the perfect hotel replacement during our stay in London. A beautiful residential street on the edge of the greatest neighbourhood in London (Holland Park), a stone's throw away from High Street Kensington and Notting Hill and with super quick access to the Westfield Mall and the roads that lead to the A40 and North London. Pay parking on the street for rental cars is available. The owner is a very knowledge wonderful professional lady. She was there for one night in her own separate room and bath and was a pleasure to deal with her. The apartment is super clean, new, basic but modern and tastefully furnished. There are everything one need in a comfortable home. Perfect for women travelling alone, couples and retired. 22 February 2016 - 15:10:30

    Excellent location in an amazing part of London! Half way between Kensington high street and Notting hill UG stations. Sheppard bush station Kensington Olympia stations, both are 3 to 5 minute walk, Lots of upscale Caffey and restaurant, both on Holland Park Avenue on one side, on Kensington High Street on the other side. Holland Park itself is a must see hidden park just few block away. We also took the Hop on Hop off bust just around the corner. Apartment itself is very clean, safe and is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Kitchen, shower, living room all worked very well for me and my husband. We had a lovely 2 weeks stay in this property. The owner was there for only for 2 nights but we had seen her only once, she is very kind and helpful. Would recommend to friends and would stay again. Everything was great thank you Maria 11 April 2016 - 04:21:38

    I was there for 3 weeks Loved the Apartment, Great location, very safe, 10 to 15 minutes walk to vibrant shopping area of High street Kensington as well as Nothing Hill. There are plenty of places to eat in the area. The flat was extremely well presented, clean & tidy with fast wifi which is important for me. Although I was on my own, the flat will comfortably accommodate 3. I spent most nights eating out, however I did eat in a few times & found the flat is well equipped with all cutlery, crockery etc. Maria was there for only 2 night but I wish she was there more. She is very kind, quid and helpful. Maria made me feel welcome & her local knowledge is impressive. I usually pay significantly more for a small hotel room when I need to be in this part of London, but was pleased I tried this service. recommend this property especially for woman travelling alone. But very suitable for Couple too. I think I found my home in London . Than you Maria 15 February 2017 - 14:00:00

    Me and my husband booked the flat because of the location and price. We were a little worried at the but turned out to be Perfect for our need. The flat has been nicely furnished very clean and feels like home. We had a great stay with all the facilities in the heart of London. Really close to all amenities and well connected by public transport to go everywhere. The Maria was not there when we arrived. Maria's assistant, lovely Lucy checked us in. But we were able to contact maria via whats up and email any time. She is really kind and helpful so I would recommend it to everybody.. 15 February 2017 - 13:03:00

    This is a wonderful place to stay. I stayed here for 2 weeks with a friend and couldn't have asked for more. There are at least 4 grocery stores within walking distance on Kensington High Street and Kensington High Street was the Underground station we used daily. Maria was a friendly and gracious host. Allowed us cupboard and refrigerator space and we could cook and wash our clothes as we pleased. She was not there for a few days, but was around for the rest of our stay. She is so kind and quiet we didn't mind her being there at all. I was worried about sharing a flat with a stranger, but this was a great experience and I would stay here again on any future visit to London! 05 November 2014 - 22:38:47
