A small flat with lots of windows and sunshine. Not much of a view, but St. Luke's Gardens are at the end of the block, and the river not too far the other way. Ten minutes walk if you go slowly. Buses to everywhere round the corner.

As previously arranged, we contacted Philippa when we arrived at the neighborhood Tube Station in London, and then met her in person at her flat just a few minutes later. She gave us a very thorough introduction to all aspects such as Kitchen, laundry, garbage, etc and welcomed any questions that we had. The flat and location were exactly as described in the listing, and, in fact, exceeded it.
Philippa is a lovely hostess and very accommodating. The flat was just as described, and was perfect for my 2-week venture in London. Philippa's flat is very comfortable and private, and close to all amenities. I would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay while exploring London.
A wonderful place to stay in London! It was easy to get to anywhere in London, situated between South Kensington and Sloane Square Tube stops. The first day we walked from the apartment to Westminister Abbey and Parliament. We loved the area, the walk along Kings Rd was one we did often and will miss. The flat was well appointed and Philippa gave us a thorough introduction to everything in the apartment before she left. Great food stores nearby, Waitrose and M&S. If we go back to London we would want to stay here again.
A small flat off the Kings Road in Chelsea which we took for a month. Probably a bit small for a full month. 15-20 minutes walk from Sloane Square it is a good position save for one glaring fault. It is on the corner of Hemus Place (see Google street view) which contains the loading docks and delivery areas for Habitat and Waitrose and the trucks can start form 6:00 AM some mornings and 7:00 AM most! A sleep in is not an option. A minor but inconvenient matter was the dish washer was non functional when we arrived and as the owner was overseas nothing could be done. Generally satisfactory!
I don't understand about a 6.00am start. They never start before 8.00am when I am there. As I like to sleep later than that, I close the double glazed windows and let the ceiling fan run slowly at night, and I hear nothing. Since the emissions zone came into force there are very few deliveries, the Royal Warrants glide past about 4 times a day for Waitrose, Habitat have a few deliveries, and rubbish is collected, but it is central London, and there is a fair amount of activity. You must have hit a very bad patch.
The dishwasher is a bit tricky, but fortunately for me, my housekeeper was able to use it both before and after your visit.
Philippa’s little apartment was perfect for my week’s stay in London. Very well located and very accessible to public transport, pubs and restaurants. All amenities were readily at hand. If only I had realised that there was an air conditioning unit above front door before my last days stay, especially as London probably experienced its hottest days of the summer during my stay! I would certainly recommend this apartment and hope to stay there on my next London trip. Mike
This was our first BnB experience and we were very pleased. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the owner was very friendly and helpful. A delightful lady from upstairs made our stay more enjoyable and managed a maintenance issue while we were out. Location was excellent, directly on the bus lines and short walks to two tube stations. Many food/pub choices minutes away and the Waitrose market was just around the corner. We felt totally comfortable with the neighborhood and although we were on a first floor, it was actually very quiet and we slept well. Starts to get a little noisy some mornings at 8, but we were well on on way to heading out for the morning. We appreciated the absolute absence of smoke in the apartment. I can easily recommend this apartment and location to anyone!

English, grandmother, I have travelled quite a lot. I love being in different countries, as long as they are warm!.
I enjoy preparing a clean comfortable flat with plenty of empty cupboards, as I would like to find things myself.
Nowadays I like to travel by sea so it is a challenge getting to where I would like to go. But that is the fun of it!
