"We look forward to staying here again"
We had a thoroughly delightful stay at Cornwall Gardens, a sunny, attractively decorated apartment that soon felt like home. The place is furnished with everything you could need, including the wherewithal to dine in, and stayed toasty warm on chilly days. A few blocks from the Gloucester Tube station, the flat's location puts you within easy reach of most London cultural and tourist destinations, and nearby restaurants and shops offer most anything you could need. We look forward to staying here again on future trips to London.
"Christmas in London"
Pembridge Crescent - 2 bedroom is a great location, 100 meters from corner of Portobello Rd and Pembridge Villas, and a 5 min walk to the tube station and major bus routes. All the amenities, excellent WiFi, kitchen well equipped, perfect for four people, large enough living room to entertain guests. Top floor location (stairs) makes it less suitable for very young kids, but otherwise no downside. Lots of great eating places nearby, 7 min walk to Hyde Park, several grocery stores nearby, and in a very safe and quiet residential area. Great value, we would go back and stay there again in a heartbeat.
"A highly satisfactory stay in a lovely part of London"
Bishops Mansions - We had to cancel the airport transportation at the last minute and had no difficulty contacting the property administrators, who had arranged it for us in the first place. The maid was waiting for us upon arrival and gave us a comprehensive tour of the flat, explaining how the various artifacts worked and underlining the few regulations which had to be observed. On top of this, the owner had prepared a folder with a welcome letter, instructions for the boiler and heating, how to reach the local underground stations, a guide to the local pubs and restaurants and so on. The flat was clean, tastefully decorated and well supplied with amenities. The larder was well stocked and works on a "consume and replace" basis. It was simple to connect to the wi-fi link and it worked adequately. The walk through the park and along the river's edge to Putney Bridge station was invigorating. The neighbourhood is quiet, but a short walk away there is a good selection of highstreet shops. We visited various pubs and restaurants and would recommend The Brown Cow, The Eight Bells and La Pizzica (for Italian food cooked and served by Italians). I would most definitely recommend this property to friends and family (in fact it was recommended to me by family). All in all, a highly satisfactory stay in a lovely part of London.
The Onslow Square flat exceeded our expectations. From the pictures, one cannot appreciate just how spacious this flat is. The kitchen was handy for breakfast every morning. The beds were comfortable, the showers were hot, and it was just a very comfortable place to hang out when we were not out being tourists. The master bedroom was large and comfortable and the twin bedroom was perfect for our daughters. The neighborhood is quiet despite a lot of commuter foot traffic on weekdays. Sue and Emily responded to all of my questions leading up to our arrival. The drivers from the car service were on time and very courteous. Short, nice walks to bus stops and the South Kensington tube. As another reviewer mentioned, you can do laundry but only in small loads, and one unit both washes and dries. Highly recommended!
"Would definitely stay here again!"
We stayed at Park Close (Holland Park/Kensington) for eight days, right before the Olympics and loved every minute of it. Sue Rogers was a fabulous help and was incredibly responsive to my many questions! Our ten-year old son played in Holland Park daily (the playgrounds are a 3-4 minute walk away), we jogged through the park and neighborhood daily and we all loved how close we were to the various Tube stations (we used High Street Kensington and Holland Park most often). Though the flat could use some updating (happening soon, I believe), it was quite clean and gave us plenty of room to stretch out. It was wonderful to bring groceries home from Waitrose and actually be able to do laundry before heading home! We actually felt like locals the week we were there. The building itself was safe and very quiet but we did hear peacocks in the morning and the Holland Park opera at night, which was lovely. One highlight of staying there is that we saw Jimmy Page twice and actually had a chat with him once. Austin, Texas
"Very convenient location"
We arrived back in Sydney last night. We really enjoyed staying in Nottinghill at Pembridge Crescent. The flat was great. Very convenient location.
We have had a great time, can't believe it has been almost two weeks -- thank you for arranging this, we've really enjoyed staying in an apartment (Pembridge Crescent) rather than a hotel.
"We are thrilled."
We are thrilled with the apartment and are enjoying our stay enormously at Redburn Street. It is such a comfort to come "home" to your lovely flat every evening.
"It well exceeded our expectations."
I just wanted to write you a note to say how much we enjoyed staying at the Walton St. flat last week. It well exceeded our expectations, both in the flat as well as the location. The flat is just perfect for two people. It was clean, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Jackie M.
"We wished we had been able to stay longer."
Cornwall Gardens was wonderful. The flat was very comfortable and in such a great spot for us with transport and shops so close. We wished we had been able to stay longer. Maybe another trip in warmer weather as we would love to have used the back garden area. Our airport transfer also great. Sam was very nice and so good after such a long flight to have someone right there when we arrived.
“What a fantastic trip”
Well Glo … .what a fantastic trip and accommodation. Can’t thank you enough !!!! Everything was just perfect – the owner has wonderful taste in her décor.
“We all had a terrific time”
Dear Sue: We have returned from a wonderful holiday in London with many thanks
for recommending Onslow Square. It was perfect. The right configuration, great
bedrooms with wonderful privacy, and all the amenities. It was also wonderful
to be able to stroll around the garden in the evening - one of London's
beautiful garden squares. We all had a terrific time and I know that the
accommodations played a great part in the success of holiday.
“...a great flat for us!”
Dear Sue, I wanted to let you know what a great choice Merlins Eyot turned out to be for a family with teenagers. I had been a little bit concerned about not being right by a tube stop, but riding the buses to Sloane Square worked out great. Also, my kids felt so safe and comfortable in the area they became very independent, going out shopping alone and getting the papers for us every morning. My husband really enjoyed jogging along the Thames Embankment in the morning. It turned out to be a great flat for us! Thank you.
“Great location close to shops and restaurants”
Just returned from London on Saturday - and must say that we enjoyed the Merlins Eyot apartment tremendously - great location close to shops and restaurants on Kings Rd., the apartment was tastefully furnished and beds were comfy. We would love to rent it again the next time we're in London. Regards, T.C.
“Thanks for arranging another super accommodation in the very best part of London.”
Thanks for arranging another super accommodation in the very best part of London. I traveled this May to the Chelsea Flower Show with a friend, and we enjoyed the apartment at Cornwall Gardens - a lot. The location of this particular apartment cannot be topped--the outstanding neighborhood, proximity to excellent shops and restaurants, and particularly to the convenient Gloucester Tube. Can't wait to go back, with all the best to you, Sandy F
“The apartment was like being at home”
Just a quick note to say how much Brenda and I enjoyed staying in Cheval Place.
It was close to many attractions and heaps of restaurants nearby. The apartment
was like being at home and everything we needed was supplied. Thanks once
“A relaxing, comfortable experience”
Our stay at Eardley Crescent was a relaxing, comfortable experience. We quickly felt at home, so we treated the place as our own and we didn’t want to leave. We loved the quiet garden patio behind the bedroom. We had no trouble cooking, doing laundry, or figuring out the appliances and heating. The easy access to the tube, buses, shops, and restaurants was a blessing. We found Londoners to be wonderful and helpful. Even though we read up on the tube, buses, and currency exchange, situations came up and many wonderful people offered us help when we got confused. Thank you for the experience of learning how Londoners live. Phil T
“The location was excellent and the flat was lovely.”
I wanted to thank you for recommending Eardley Crescent. The location was
excellent and the flat was lovely. Thank you again. Marina B
“We would definitely like to return.”
We had been having a very stressful time, so to come back to a very comfortable and quiet apartment was just what we needed. The location was great and having the use of a garden was certainly an added bonus. We would definitely like to return. CLP
".. a tremendous success”
Hi! We are just back. We spent a week in Paris after London. The London apartment was a tremendous success! Thank you for your help with such last minute notification! We had to make an emergency call to Canada while we were there, so wanted to let you know that that call will be on the owner's bill. I guess it can come out of the deposit, but let us know. We were amazed at the convenience and, of course, the beautiful setting on the river. Anne & Doug
"Thanks for your organization and good service”
The flat was excellent and the flowers on the table a lovely welcoming touch.
Everything was absolutely fine and we all enjoyed the visit so much. Again,
thanks for your organization and good service once again. We love being back in
London. Warmest regards, Faye
“What a delight to open the French doors every morning to the crisp Thames air”
What a delight to open the French doors every morning to the crisp Thames air
and watch the cormorants fish and the terns forage twenty feet away! Access was
easy: six-minute walk to never-crowded Vauxhall tube and then 15 minutes to
King’s Cross. Less than a half hour after we closed our front door, we were at
our desks in the British Library. Walk-by Tesco is good for quick (even has
produce), but the mega-Sainsbury four blocks away has dozens of choices on
everything. The cheese counter is huge and provided several nights’ meals
(cheese, crackers, sparkling wine) as we sat around the table and enjoyed the
evening river traffic. As much as we like to try a new flat each time, we may
break the rule for Elm Quay. P+M, San Francisco
“Thank you for making our vacation so memorable”
Dear Sue, We would like to thank you for our wonderful stay at the Gordon Place flat last month. This note is a bit late but we just got caught up in work piled up during our vacation and also more travel upon our return. Your flat is really quite a delightful place and we hope to return again next year. Thank you once again for making our vacation so memorable. Best Regards, Shrikant
“We shall return!”
Dear Sue, First of all, thank you for returning our security deposit so promptly, we appreciate your attentiveness. I apologize for not responding sooner to your note, but as soon as we returned home, we were off on another 8 day unplanned vacation. We loved the location of Gordon Place. We enjoyed living with the residents, watching them go to work in the morning, escorting their children to school or simply out walking with their dogs. Having Marks and Spencer virtually next door meant that we never went hungry or ran out of wine. The proximity to the tube and bus stops, made getting around easily. We also walked to Kensington Park with ease. We really felt a part of the community, especially the corner pub. We found the apartment spacious and bright and well furnished. We could hear the rumble from the tube, but after awhile could ignore it. There is no doubt that the place is a hidden jewel. We absolutely loved London and were out to the theatre, opera or concerts 11 of the 13 nights that we were there. We felt safe everywhere and found the locals very helpful. We found London expensive, but worth every penny. We shall return!
“You made the process of renting a London flat so easy and we really appreciated it.”
We loved the Bourne Street flat. It was bright, comfortable, cozy & quite spacious. And the location was absolutely ideal both for the tube and the bus. I am really glad that we waited all those weeks ago to see if it was available because it was perfect for us. The whole trip was great - the weather co-operated and London was a beguiling as I remembered from my last trip. And our travel both there and back was pretty much hassle-free (a rarity these days!) Thank you for all your assistance in getting the flat for us and answering my tons of questions. You made the process of renting a London flat so easy and we really appreciated it. I have recommended to friends & colleagues thinking of going to London to think about getting a flat rather than a hotel and referred them to your website. So you may get an influx of inquiries from Canadians in the future! KM
