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 building 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 bicycles available at a Boris Bike stand less than 40 yards away.
We look forward to welcoming you to your home from home...

Other things to note
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 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.
Smoking allowed strictly on balcony only

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.)
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!
