The apartment was exactly what it looked like in pictures. The location could not have been more convenient and Paulo was helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend this place!
The apt was very clean and easy to find. It was very close to the tube and very convenient location/neighborhood. Paulo was also very responsive. Thank you!
These comments are about another apt: we were upgraded because this apt wasn't available.
We had a wonderful stay at Paulo's apt: very well located, many good restaurants, pubs, lively neighbourhood! Bus stop at the door, metro station at 5 min.
The apt itself is nice, clean, well equipped. We arrived early from an oversea/overnignt flight and Paulo accomodated us so we could get the apt earlier, which was very appreciated.
The flat is very nice and efficient equiped for a good stay. The livingroom and the bedroom are enought separated to not disturb the person that go to the bed. The place is excellent. Upper street is a great zone with bus in front the house door and it is very close a Victoria lane tube station which is one of the fastest lanes to reach the city center. Owing to the bars and restaurants, it is some noisy during weekend but we always be tired because we visit many places and thats was not a trouble for us. Also the Paul´s team did a great job because we had a trouble with other dirty flat and they made a quick check in during saturday night. I will book it again if I would return to london next year.
Paulo was clear, accommodating, warm and straightforward. We had an excellent stay in the flat, which was clean, spacious, colourfully decorated, equipped with towels and kitchen essentials. The bed was comfortable, the sofa bed also. The location is excellent and we really felt at home. I would definitely recommend Paulo and be delighted to stay there again.
There's a bunch of reviews for this place already that list detailed pros and cons, so I had a fair idea of what to expect and thankfully I had no nasty surprises and just a very comfortable stay. Paul and his team keep the place maintained well, and are quick to respond to anything you may enquire about.
This rental was exactly what we wanted. We are a couple in our sixties who love to travel to foreign places and live in local residences that can integrate us well into the life of the area. This rental could not have been better suited for us -- many cosy amenities in the apartment such as a Nespresso coffee maker, mobile phone for local usage, good quality linens, light-obscuring window treatments, a very well stocked kitchenette, a washing machine for light laundry, reliable Wifi service, and a hairdryer. The apartment was great for visits from our two grown sons and their friends, who came in more than once for coffee and card playing before dinner.
The locale is perfect -- excellent access to London transport, and a multitude of shops, restaurants and pubs in a young, thriving community. We left wishing that we owned a flat in the area.
A hearty thank-you to Paul and his team for giving such an apt description of the rental and for being so accommodating during our stay. I definitely want to rent from them again.

Originally from Southern Europe, and now living between London and Bali, i strive to make my properties the most accommodating.
As a seasoned traveler myself, i understand the importance of the comfort of home as well as an adventurous experience in a new city. I combine both of these to ensure a positive, memorable experience for all of my guests.
I enjoy traveling, great food, and vibrant atmospheres and want to share that with others through our property locations. These locations are all minutes away from my friends and my favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping areas. We really love it here and know you will too!
I look forward to welcoming you !
