The Space

This is an elegant and compact apartment with high ceilings located in the popular area of Brook Green with funky gastropubs and shops and first class access to London’s bus and tube network.

A light and airy 603 square foot first floor flat, this property has a fabulous balcony that runs the entire width of the property. Used as a bolthole in the city by its artistic owners who live in the countryside, this property makes an ideal base from which to explore London.

The flat comprises a bright, light filled sitting room, a well-fitted eat-in kitchen, a double bedroom, a single bedroom with a solid, 3ft wide bunk bed, a bijoux bathroom with small bath and shower and a separate WC. The sitting room has a freeview TV and DVD player, radio and ipod player. The flat also has WiFi and a pay-as-you-go phone will be available to guests.

The bunk bed in the second bedroom makes this an ideal apartment for families or sharers. It is close to the shops and cafes in Brooke Green as well as a children’s playground and also within walking distance of the new Westfield Shopping centre and beautiful Holland Park.

Also within walking distance are several acclaimed gastropubs, bars and restaurants, cinema’s and the theatres and concert venues in Hammersmith.

  • Great apartment. My highlights: overall condition, clean, quiet, well connected, balcony, wifi. Would stay there always again.

    Being over monthly for work I would rate it higher than any 3-star hotel I have been in the UK. I always like to have some space and being in a kind of personalized environment rather than a standard sterile hotel room.

    The apartment is exactly as shown on the pictures. One big bedroom, one with bunk bed, living room, kitchen, bathroom & separate toilet. The balcony is a luxury add-on in case of good weather ... and it was ;-)

    The apartment is nicely decorated with high ceilings, nice paintings and functional furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped incl microwave and oven. The bathrooms worked well and are above standard.

    The bedrooms are directed to the street but it's a quiet one esp during nights you have low traffic. Surely, there is some noise when a taxi/car approaches but, hey, you are in the city!

    The apartment is very well connected ... 2 mins away from Underground/Overground and it's easy to get into the center when going northbound to Shepherd's Bush or southbound to West Brompton/Earl's Court. You can even take the busses from Hammersmith Road directly into Picadilly.

    We stayed there for 4 nights but could have easily loved to extend it ...

  • L'appartement est très agréable pour 4 personnes et proche de deux lignes de bus permettant d'aller directement au centre de Londres ( buckingham palace, trafalgar square) en 30 ou 40 minutes ainsi que d'une bouche d'upperground.

  • I must say that using THIS site was above and beyond other site. We had planned a multi-stop trip and used other sites along with this one and this sites programmers have the best interface out there. I had a perfect details page with all the information along with reminders and updates and even including to do a review of my host... In this case I had 2. ROWAN and PETER. First of all. GREAT HOME. Nothing to complain about at all. Well, except.. in the mornings and late at night I could easily hear people talking outside and I would think ...'wow, these windows are really thin...' well, on our last day when we re-opened the drapes in the main bedroom we realized that the small window above the door was open.. so... not really a complaint just a thing to point out. We loved everything about this place TOTALLY close to whatever you need. The Olympia station above ground has some really nice direct stops that help not having to walk too much. The hosts of the flat are wonderful I really had hoped to meet Rowan but never did. Peter was very accommodating even with our 2 hour delay on arrival at RUSH HOUR. Super nice fellow. The info he gave us was very helpful and we used it every day or our tour. Perfect place great people to rent from.....Thanks for a great stay !!!

  • Our family of 5 stayed at this apartment and it was a very fine experience. The apartment is exactly as described and shown. It was clean, had plenty of towels/bedding, was very quiet, great WIFI, and had all the necessary accessories (laundry machine, kitchen appliances, dishes, hairdryer, TV, etc.). It is just a couple minutes from Kensington Olympia train station and also a number of very convenient buses. Both of these allowed us to easily get to all the sights around London. The caretakers - Peter and Rowan were nice enough to let us check in at 10 am which was a big help since we arrived early to Heathrow. EMAIL communication before the trip was slow however phone calls to them were answered immediately. They were both kind and helpful.
    I would definitely recommend a stay here - it was a great base for our family trip to London.

  • This apartment is in an excellent location and is pretty much exactly as the pictures show. Lovely high ceilings, good decor and facilities. The beds are comfortable and the bunk beds are quite spacious. The kitchen is slightly bigger than I expected.

    The bathroom and toilet are separate rooms which is convenient but the toilet room is very small-for us it was fine but if you are very tall and broadIt might be a little awkward.

    The only annoying niggle with respect to the apartment was that the door knobs into and out of many of the rooms are awkward-circular door knobs with very little area to twist them and all three of us found them a little aannoying and hurt our hands a few times. I think a lever style door handle would be much better.

    Finally we were very grateful to be allowed to leave our bags well past the departure time so we didn't have to haul them around the conference we were attending.

    Access to the property is via a staircase but when we visited all the hall lights were out of order and it was very dark and difficult to see where we were going and what keys we were using! Thankfully we were able to use our mobile.phones for light but if were an older group it would have been difficult.

    This apartment is nice and much much better than staying in a hotel.

  • We zijn met een gezin van 4 (2 kinderen van 11 en 14) 6 dagen in dit appartement geweest. Het appartement zelf ligt prima ten opzichte van openbaar vervoer (bus), in een leuke buurt, en heeft veel voorzieningen (winkeltjes, cafe, restaurant). Verder is het appartement ruim, met een goed uitgeruste keuken, prima bedden en sanitair. De verhuurder Rowan was flexibel met in- en uitchecken. Kleine minpuntjes: Rowan reageerde vrij traag op mail, het appartement was niet zo schoon als je bv vergelijkt met een hotel. Maar ons totaal oordeel is zeer positief: deze plek was een prima uitvalsbasis om Londen te ontdekken.

About
(I'm the one with the moustache by the way) I love finding hidden gems in London... last weekend we discovered the best falafel wrap from a little stall on Golbourne road (close to Portobello).. Mouthwatering (and actually not at all un-healthy!). Whether its an off the wall indie coffee shop with a magical secret blend or a new exhibition at one of the museums, there is just so much going on here its a truly exciting place to be. If I'm not in London, I'm probably in the heart of mid-Wales, getting some mud on my boots and enjoying the lack of traffic and parking meters :) We have been hosting holiday-makers from all over the world for more than 5 years now and pride ourselves on the qualty of our homes and of our service (always with a smile and we like to think we are as accommodating as humanly possible). We live in the same area as all of our properties and are bringing up our 2 children here. We love what we do and the fact that it gives us more time together as a family is a huge bonus. Look forward to hearing from you! Onwards and upwards...
