APARTMENT OVERVIEW Perfect for your stay in Central London! - This is a newly renovated and elegantly furnished two double bedroom two bathroom apartment of around 920 sq ft (85 sq m) in one of Kensington and Chelsea’s most beautiful and peaceful squares. - The apartment would comfortably accommodate 4 people (two people sharing each bedroom) or a family with 2 children (3 children, if one of the children is young enough to sleep in the cot). - Direct access to sunny roof terrace of ca. 80 sq m. I would be pleased to arrange access to the garden square (which is only open to the residents). - Fully equipped (two ovens, dishwasher, washer/dryer) - Very quiet square with limited traffic (both bedrooms are even more quiet enjoying location at the back facing an internal garden) - Nearest tube station is Earls Court (Piccadilly and District line) - only 30 min from Heathrow by car or 50-60 min on the tube THE APARTMENT The 42 sq m (21.5 ft by 21 ft) open plan living/dining room is south facing with three large windows offering beautiful uninterrupted views of the square. The bright living room has direct access to the large nearly 80 sq m sunny roof terrace. The custom-made kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances: gas hob, dishwasher, two ovens (conventional and combination/microwave oven), waste disposal system and fridge/freezer. The washer-dryer is discretely tucked into a built-in cupboard in the bathroom. Kitchenware, tableware and cooking essentials such as salt, sugar and oils are provided. Kettle, coffeemaker, toaster and Cuisinart kitchen processor are at your disposal as well. The dining area has a table for up to 8 people so perfect for family dinners at home. The sitting area has a new high-efficiency gas fireplace to keep you cosy and cheerful during the winter evenings!. If you need to do the laundry, the apartment has a new washer-dryer, steam iron and ironing board. You are welcome to enjoy the 50 inch smart TV, Netflix and Chromecast audio-based hifi, as well as Wifi (unlimited downloads).

The second bedroom has a guest bed which can be converted into a large king size bed or, upon request, two single beds, depending on your requirements. A double door wardrobe is at your disposal. Bed linen and towels are provided. There are two bathrooms decorated in a traditional art deco style. The en-suite bathroom has a designer bath/power shower mixer and the second bathroom room is also equipped with a power shower.

Last but not least, there is a roof access straight from the flat (up the stairs from the living room through a fully automated skylight) to a beautiful fully decked roof space.

Please keep the noise to the minimum as the house is located in a quiet residential area. - No spiky heels (eg stilettos) on the wooden floor in the living room. - No pets - No smoking in the apartment but please eel free to use the rooftop space THE NEIGHBOURHOOD The flat is very well located with Earls Court tube station (Piccadilly and District Line) only a few minutes away, which means you can get from or to Heathrow Airport in 40 min by direct underground (useful as traffic can be very busy in London during peak hours) or only 25 min by car. Piccadilly Circus, Covent Garden, and the West End are about 20 minutes by the underground. The apartment is also very close to landmarks such as the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, Royal Albert Hall, V&A Museum are a short distance away. High Street Kensington and Holland Park (great for a morning run!) are about 10 min walking distance and Hyde Park is about 20 min walk. There are a lots of shops in High Street Kensington, anything from designer and high street clothes and homeware brands to antiques. For large-scale grocery shopping, there is a very big Tesco in Cromwell Road (3 min walk from the flat) and Wholefoods in High Street Kensington (15 min walk). Earls Court Road is well served by a variety of shops such as Sainsbury’s Local, Coop, Marks &Spencer Food etc. GETTING AROUND The area is very well served by public transport (underground, overground, buses). There is an NCP car park on the other side of the Cromwell Road (3 min walk to the apartment) - happy to make an inquiry about the charges for you on request. Alternatively, it may be possible to arrange parking with one of the nearby hotels, but please do contact me in advance so I can check if this option is available for your dates. OTHER Please note that the apartment is in a period building in a conservation area and there is no lift access so the access is only by stairs to second and third floor. The apartment enjoys sole access for recreational purposes to the roof space, which also serves as emergency exit. Please exercise utmost caution and care if you need to use this space.

    Wonderful place to stay and the owner (Maria) couldn't have been nicer. The recently updated apartment is bright and cheerful and was the perfect place to stay with our 5 1/2 year old. We liked the quiet street with garden views, but also how close it was to everything. The Earl's Court Tube stop is 4 blocks away. Many museums and Hyde Park are just 2 or 3 Tube stops away. There is a large supermarket (Tesco) just a three minute walk from the flat. It was very helpful to have the washer/dryer. Great communication from the owner who suggested a quicker and less expensive way to get there from the airport. We had been planning to take the Heathrow Express, transfer to the Tube and make our way to Earl's Court. For about the same time, less suitcase hassle and 1/3 the cost, we were able to take the Picadilly line directly from Heathrow to Earl's Court. Would definitely come back. 16 May 2017 - 14:41:00

    The flat was a perfect location from which to explore London, conveniently located a five minute walk from the tube. Our host couldn't have been more helpful, answering our many questions and offering restaurant and excursion recommendations. The flat was lovely, quiet, and had everything needed to make our stay in London wonderful. Upon our arrival, our host met us to assure that we settled in comfortably. I hope to return to this great city and stay here again. I highly recommend it! 07 May 2017 - 10:16:00

    It's hard to judge the quality of a vacation rental without previous reviews, but this turned out to be a good experience. The flat was extremely spacious and clean. Plus there was the bonus of a roof-top patio that wasn't even advertised. The flat is a mix of very high quality kitchen appliances, mattresses, bathroom needs, and extras in every cabinet for your needs. This unit has been thought through completely and lacks for nothing. The only issue that was incongruous was the ordinary quality of the kitchen tables, chairs and second bedroom beds. The younger of my guests had no problem with the third bed, but the adult found it unsatisfactory. The master bedroom mattress was exceptional. I liked the airiness of the flat and many amenities. I would definitely stay again. The 3-stair climb is a bit of a grind depending on the person, yet a very safe and quiet location. 05 June 2017 - 22:18:00

    This flat is perfect (once you get used to a few steps up to the unit). Nice south facing windows overlooking pretty green park. Great layout, nice kitchen & well stocked, the roof deck was a very nice feature for viewing and provided a break in the unusual warm weather we had during our stay. Great neighborhood, Tesco large market 2-3 blocks away, nice restaurants close by. FYI we had planned on using the Tube for transport but Uber in London is excellent, front door service, was cheaper than tube for our family of four. Looking forward to recommending this unit/owner to our family and friends. Cheers 21 June 2017 - 16:15:00

    I spent 5 days in this gorgeous apartment with my 8 year old son and my parents, and it was wonderful in every way. My son described it as "perfect for relaxing, very kid friendly, and has everything you could want!" The apartment itself is elegant yet comfortable and practical - a comfy living room area, a dining table for 6, and a beautiful, well-equipped kitchen (well stocked with cooking basics and condiments of all kinds), all in one lovely, airy, open space. The high ceilings and big windows meant that it was flooded with light, and it looks out over the quiet residential square and private garden in the middle - it felt like a little haven of peace in the city. Both the bedrooms were nicely decorated, and we found the beds very comfortable. It was great to have two full bathrooms, and a washer/dryer. We loved the easy-to-access roof deck, with table and chairs, and we enjoyed wine and cheese there before dinner looking out over the rooftops, as the sun set. Maria, the owner, welcomed us with cold drinks when we arrived, showed us around, and was incredibly helpful and friendly. It was fantastic to have the key to the private garden in the square, which was like a small, exclusive park, with swings/climbing equipment for children, and picnic tables, and a lovely grassy expanse with lots of shade, which made for a wonderful picnic on a hot summer day. The location couldn't be better - just a 5 minute walk from the Earls Court tube, and from excellent grocery stores and all kinds of restaurants. It was just a short tube ride or a nice walk to the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the V&A in South Kensington, and easy to get to the center of town. I would highly recommend this apartment - we loved our time there, and hope we can stay again next time we come to London! 27 June 2017 - 01:19:00

    We spent 2 days in this beautiful flat on occasion of our daughter's graduation. The flat is cosy, clean, bright and recently refurbished. There is a wonderful terrace on the roof that we enjoyed a lot in spite of the variable weather. The Landlord is very kind and we found all what we needed. The location is quiet and very convenient, just a little walk to shops and underground station. The only remark is about the fourth bed, which is a bit unstable, but our daughter could sleep very well, anyway! and last you have not to be scared about stairs! We would definitively stay there again in case we'll have a chance to come back to London. 29 July 2017 - 14:29:00

    My daughter and two teen-age granddaughters stayed for four days and the apartment met all of our expectations. Maria was very responsive and easy to work with and generally quite lovely. A good value for the price. We especially appreciated how light and bright the apt. was as well as the roof-top deck where we ate dinner several nights. The master suite (with full bathroom) is very private. Second bedroom with two separate beds and second full bathroom was perfect. Our fourth person slept on a portable single bed and found it easier to get rid of the frame and simply sleep on the mattress on the floor. The 65 steps could be challenging, but at 78, I found them pretty easy to do. We liked the neighborhood and the five minute walk to the Tube. 01 August 2017 - 04:58:00

    Thanks Maria. You accommodated us above and beyond with my daughter's need to access the apartment early. The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs that seemed endless, so be prepared to huff. Once opening the door the pleasantness of the flat outweighed the stair climb. This flat pays close attention to lighting and comfort. There is recessed lighting in each room and the open window availability made the cool days and nights wonderful. As a bonus, there is a really cool roof terrace where sitting with a glass of wine/coffee is available. The beds and linens are comfortable. The home is quiet and sleeps are deep. Maria gave us coffee and water which was so sweet. The TV was also simple to use and Netflix was easily available. My kids and I really enjoyed this apartment and would definitely recommend it. 06 August 2017 - 12:44:00

    This was our favorite place to stay during our two week trip! Newly renovated with excellent quality. Perfect location for the metro/subway and beautiful park across the street. Good restaurants nearby, as well as markets and groceries. The kitchen was well equipped and the 2 bathrooms were appreciated. Even a rooftop space to enjoy. Maria was a wonderful hostess and even carried my bag up the stairs; which were a little daunting. We highly recommend this apartment!! 04 September 2017 - 15:12:00

    Perfect for our family of 4 with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms! Tube stop, groceries and a variety of restaurants are all within walking distance. Maria was very helpful with restaurant recommendations. 27 August 2017 - 19:56:00

    The apartment is fully equipped and very convenient for seeing London. It's a two block walk to the tube with easy access to all major sights. The apartment is charming and very clean. Great find for London! 06 September 2017 - 11:57:00
  13. We really didn't know where to stay - so we looked online and just guessed. Turns out we guessed right! Kensington is a really fun and interesting place to stay - with plenty there. It's away from the crush of downtown - but easy enough to get to the important places. And the apartment was very new and in great shape. Maria met us when we arrived and arranged everything perfectly. 28 September 2017 - 12:52:00

    Our family of 4 enjoyed a wonderful stay in Earl's Court. Maria was a wonderful host, meeting us when we arrived and responding to all queries immediately. The roof terrace is an amazing bonus. We would definitely stay here again. 16 September 2017 - 05:43:00
  15. Molly C.
    We loved this flat! It was perfect for our family, 2 adults and 2 children. It is very close to many grocery stores and the tube stop. There are many nice restaurants close. We loved the croissants at Paul. The flat has access to a garden across the street, and our children loved playing there and meeting other children. We had a great experience, and Maria was nice and helpful. 13 August 2017 - 14:14:00

    Had a terrific stay at Marias flat we loved it! It was well located (just two blocks from the Tube) and situated overlooking a lovely private park. The bedrooms face the back of the apartment so they were nice and quiet in the morning. The dcor was tasteful and simple and the apartment had loads of natural light. It had all we needed from dishwasher to microwave (which required a bit of a learning curve for us Americans but we got it going). Beds were comfy enough with warm duvets and plenty of pillows. Side note that the one of the twin beds is an air bed/mattress. There is a terrific roof deck that, had it been warmer, we absolutely would have taken advantage of. Maria was a delightful and friendly host. She reached out to us ahead of our trip for our travel info and to see if we needed anything special and/or had questions prior to arriving and then met and greeted us when we arrived. We have a serious food allergy in the family and she helped to identify some safe places to eat. She also made herself readily available for any questions or concerns during our stay. We very comfortably stayed as a family of four and will definitely be back! While this was not an issue at all for us, just be aware that its a third floor flat so there are quite a few steps (60 to be exact - counted by our kids!). Very manageable, in our opinion, though! Thank you Maria for a terrific London experience. Can't wait to visit again :) 16 November 2017 - 02:55:00

    We had a lovely 9 nights in this comfortable apartment. Property looks exactly as depicted in the pictures. The apartment was clean and well appointed. Beds were very comfortable. It was nice to have a washer/dryer for our long stay in London. The apartment is close to the tube, restaurants and shopping. The area is safe and we felt very comfortable walking around even late at night. Maria was wonderful to deal with and gave us some nice restaurant recommendations. There are a LOT of stairs involved with this rental, (which Maria is up front about) but the third floor views and access to the roof deck are certainly worth it. Would stay again! 28 November 2017 - 23:40:00

    Beautifully appointed accommodation. Definitely a wonderful home away from home. Our host was terrific and went the extra mile to be welcoming. Central location - shops, restaurants, the underground were all minutes away. Will definitely stay here again! 19 January 2018 - 19:49:00
