Glorious, comfortable and funky setting for our overnight stay in London on a return leg of a trip home to Perth. Wonderful location close to parks, shops and transport links. Loved the top floor apartment!
We had an amazing stay in Victoria's apartment. It was extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated, and spotless. A great blend of modern convenience and old fashioned character. Victoria was a lovely host, making sure there was a well stocked kitchen for breakfast and snacks, and clear instructions for both the apartment and navigating the charming neighborhood. The location is perfect for a London visit! We hope to be back.
Great place, quiet area in London and, in the same time really close to center. Confortable appartment, really cosy... Was really nice!!!
Victoria is a lovely host, very insightful and extremely helpful. She named sites to see and how to get there. Using the Tube for the first time was a breeze thanks to her, as she provided a variety of maps and tips on how to get the most out of it (eg. Oyster cards).
The apartment is very clean and quaint, the perfect size for just my boyfriend and myself. She provided a stocked fridge, which made breakfast much easier when we were on the go. The best thing about the flat is that it's situated in the center of London, in between multiple Tube stations and bus stops, and yet it is on a very quiet street.
After our experience, my boyfriend and I would stay with Victoria again.
Logement très bien situé, accueil sympathique. L'endroit est très calme et la chambre sur le jardin très agréable. Il est prévu aussi, ce qui est vraiment commode, de quoi prendre le premier petit déjeuner. L'équipement est correct, on trouve tout ce qui est nécessaire dans les placards ! Le contact avec Victoria, quoique virtuel, a été très suivi et elle s'est vraiment préoccupé de la réussite de notre séjour.
Tout est donc parfait. Simple remarque : juste pour ne pas être surpris en arrivant : la photo est fidèle mais prise avec un très grand angle, elle fait imaginer la pièce à vivre comme étant plus grande. Mais ce n'est qu'une information, pas une réserve !!
I had a fantastic stay at this sweet place. Very clean and homely. Extremely convenient location for shops and eating out but very quiet room. Vickie was an excellent host with attention to detail and useful local advice
Lovely little flat perfectly set up for a central London stay. We really appreciated the ample cupboard space which allowed us to unpack all our clothes and stow suitcases out of the way. Vickie was a lovely host and we enjoyed our chats and suggestions of local shops even if I did find Primark terrifying!
We like to sleep with the window open and the bedroom has a lovely big elevated window that opens over a quiet garden so had no concerns about sleeping with it open even though the flat is on the ground floor.
About five minutes walk to a couple of tube stations and close to the bus stop too.

Hi I 'm Vicky, an international entrepreneur in film/music, food, fashion, restoration, antiques and garden design.
I have known and loved the area intimately over the past 35 years
I enjoy travelling and having guests who can also enjoy the fresh air of the Royal Parks, street markets, museums, art galleries, music and all that London has to offer.
