The flat was awesome and Sam is very easy to work with. The main bedroom is very spacious and is completely separate from the rest of the apartment. All of the kitchen utensils are clean and the appliances are new. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone and would sta…

We generally had a good experience in the flat. Sam had made arrangements for smooth key pick-up/drop-off. The bed was very comfortable. Our only comment is that a few of the lightbulbs in the flat were broken, making it more difficult to navigate the flat after dark.

Perfect stay! It's really a home away from home. Sam and his sis Mary have been good help.

Sam is an absolutely charming and generous host. We had the privilege of meeting him on our check-in and he made us feel most welcome in his charming flat. He even made his home made beer and a portion of his liquor cabinet available to us (unfortunately we did not imbibe as we b…

Response from Sam:
Thanks for the review. We bought the flat as we wanted to live in a characterful property, and so, as you say, there are certain features that you wouldn't get in a new build, not least the fireplaces, large rooms and a sense of history. With the lighting, we have tried to adapt to create a sense of homeliness, for example by removing the central lights and using side lamps so that it feels cosy. We will leave more detailed instructions next time so that visitors know which lighting works best. We are having the bathroom done up in the next few months - being a lower ground-floor flat, without a window in the bathroom, it is natural that the lighting there is not the same as in the other rooms, but we would contest the 'dinginess' comment. We will add more photos once the work has been done. We would recommend the flat to people who would like to get a feel for historical London, by staying in an early Victoria stuccoed house with a garden in a well-connected area, and who appreciate the character that comes with antiquity.

Sam's flat was a really nice 'home away from home'. In contrast with some rental flats, his place is a real home, with cooking equipment (utensils, spices, etc) and well-stocked bookshelves - really wonderful! The flat was very clean and had fresh flowers in it when I arrived. It…

Fantastic flat, very cosy and comfortable, everything you could possibly need, lots of interesting books, a big bath and a lovely garden. Very quick into central London from the nearest tube, east walking distance to the numerous bars & restaurants on Upper St. Sam was very easy …
