We absolutely loved our time in James and Kate's beautiful apartment. We stayed there with our two adult kids for three nights.I wish we could have stayed longer. It was cozy, spacious and located in a great neighborhood. We walked to pubs, shops and the tube stations easily! All London historical attractions were quickly and easily accessed. Their book of directions and advice was very detailed and incredibly helpful. The kitchen was stocked with coffe and delicious breakfast items. The kitchen was very well organized and easy to work in. We couldn't have imagined more thoughtful and hospitable hosts. We worried at first about sharing the one bathroom with our kids, but it turned out to be no problem whatsoever! The apartment quickly became our home away from home! We highly recommend staying at James and Kate's apartment!
James and Kate's place is among the best apartments I have ever stayed at. It’s very conveniently located for exploring London and the apartment is beautifully finished with high-quality furniture and fixtures including wood floors, marble counter tops, high-quality appliances, heated marble floors in the bathroom, a working fireplace etc. The apartment felt like a home, not a rental property. James was very attentive and accommodating from the moment we booked and throughout our stay. The apartment is exactly as in the pictures: the kitchen is well-equipped with both the basics and the "extras" you associate with home, but wouldn't always find at a rental (e.g. tea and coffee, robes, etc.) and they have a lovely "welcoming pack" ready for you upon arrival. Check-in is very straightforward with easy access to two sets of keys. We also appreciated James and Kate taking the time to set out a large stack of guides to London which were great resources. We especially enjoyed the beautiful kitchen as we love to cook - it’s very well stocked with a beautiful cooker/oven. The apartment is very warm, comfortable and cosy when we were there in winter and I'm guessing in spring/summer/fall the courtyard garden would be an amazing place to relax and dine outside. The "tube" station is just 5 mins walk away, making it super-easy to get wherever you need quickly, and then you have a beautiful place of your own to retreat back to. Could not recommend more highly!
James and Kate are wonderful hosts, and their property was fantastic. They were available to help if needed, all while leaving us to ourselves. Perfect hosts. The property felt like a home away from home, and it was the perfect base for a week in London. Access to public transportation was easy and close, and Paddington Station (after a Heathrow Express ride... a GREAT way to get into London from LHR) was a 6 pound Uber ride away. As far as local amenities, there's a Tesco Express right down the street for basic needs, and other options a short distance further. For dining, you've got fantastic fish and chips at Sea Shell as well as the best pizza I've had outside of Italy at Firebrand - both a couple hundred feet down the road. All in all, we enjoyed every moment of our stay with James and Kate. Thank you both!
We so enjoyed our recent stay in James and Kate's charming flat. It's exactly as pictured: beautifully decorated, immaculate, and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, with high-quality bedding. The lovely bathroom has a large soaking tub and very nice rainfall showerhead. It's a pleasure to cook in their kitchen, which has high-end appliances and every convenience (the coffee grinder, electronic teakettle, and French press meant excellent coffee in a snap each morning). Having breakfast and suppers in the secret garden was an added bonus. The washer and dryer allowed us to pack less. We especially enjoyed the welcome basket (wonderful granola and other treats). The flat's excellent location is a 5-minute walk to the Marylebone Tube Station and 10 minutes from Regents Park and the buzzy Marylebone Village. Staying here contributed greatly to our enjoyment of our trip, giving us space and a pleasant retreat after even the longest days of sightseeing. We'd stay here again without hesitation, and hope to have another chance to do that!
The apartment was in a great location, super close to the tube and really close to Regent's park which was so pretty, we loved walking home that way. The apartment itself was fantastic! Super roomy and stylish. The rooms were a great size and the bathroom was gorgeous. The kitchen was a good size and they had everything we needed to cook. Also their couch was so comfy and we loved watching T.V on it after a long day out! They have satellite TV and Apple TV. Kate and James were super helpful and quick to respond to any emails we sent. They also had a welcome basket and left a guidebook with great suggestions. We loved staying here and would totally come back!
