Guest access

There are a variety of local shops and pubs around 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.

Interaction with guests

We will be on hand for any information that the guests require, we work in the travel media so are happy to share our local knowledge with guests. Any problems, Andy the faithful handyman will also be on hand.

Other things to note

Check in is at 3pm. Check out is at 11am. We try to be flexible with this wherever possible, but it is frequently not possible due to other bookings. To guarantee an early checkin, guests would need to also book the night the before so that we can block that date out on the calendar. Or you can use the fabulous AirPortr bag delivery service ((URL HIDDEN) to get your bags delivered later in the day. And there is also a handy left luggage facility just up the road at Westfield shopping mall anyway which we can give you the address for.

Please note: Check in is at 3pm. Check out is at 11am. We try to be flexible with this wherever possible, but it is frequently not possible due to other bookings. To guarantee an early check in, guests would need to also book the night the before so that we can block that date out on the calendar.

And there are also handy left luggage facilities around London which we can give you the details of.

Please also note: We do not have a 24 hour reception desk for keys and arrivals. It is therefore VERY important that guests communicate any delays in arrival or flight times, either while en route or before that time, so that we can facilitate your arrival and collection of keys. We will NOT be responsible if the keys are not collected at the arranged time, and this will result in guests having to pick up keys from a third party location in Acton. (Hence also why it is very important that we have guests’ flight numbers so we can track the flight online.)

The living room was very clean, big and comfortable, very good idea putting the sofa bed there.The kitchen was also very big, had everything we needed and many things similar to our regular house.The master bedroom was clean and bathroom was big.The table in the living room is a wonderful idea because it gives a great view of the street, the flat is on the perfect side and the height was just right.We loved staying there!

Everything was great, we had an amazing stay at Lizzie's apartment. We liked the location, close to tube and lots of bus stops. The bed was so comfortable, kitchen was perfect, felt like at home. Thanks to Sophie, easy check in. Highly recommend and hope to book again.

Very comfortable and well equipped apartment exactly as described. Great location less than 10 minute walk to public transport, shops and restaurants. The kids, my wife and I would definitely recommend Elizabeth's place and would return.

The apartment is very comfortable and the traffic is very convenient. Nearby are residential areas, so very quiet at night. They provided all the kitchen supplies and daily necessities Let us live like our own home.

This is a beautiful clean and fresh feeling apartment. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. A couple of things to note: the bed is what Americans would call a queen rather than a king, and the shower in the bathroom is a hand held type so if you love standing under the water to wake up this one isn't for you. But it is an excellent home base for exploring west London with two lines in close walking distance as well as a good bus line. Check in and out was very easy even as we booked last minute.

The apartment is a good size and in a good location. Other than the items listed the stay was mostly pleasant.

We manage seven 'home from home' apartments in the London Kensington Olympia area. We pride ourselves on our warm welcome and the fact that we will be on hand 24/7 for any information requests or to resolve any problems. We have a full time housekeeper on hand, the indomitable Ana, and we are always reachable by phone or email. Please note that all of these apartments are exclusive dedicated full time short let apartments, they are not people's homes just vacated! My husband works for the world's foremost upmarket travel magazine and he loves to pass on any hidden gems in London he has discovered. We look forward to hearing from you and it will be a pleasure to accommodate you during your trip to London. We love our little portfolio of apartments and we are sure you will too!
Warm regards
