About this listing
A much loved spacious one-bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor of a period building in the very heart of London can be yours on your next stay in London!
The apartment has been beautifully furnished and is very functional. It is south facing and is flooded with sun light during the day and is well proportioned throughout with a large living room, spacious bedroom and well sized bathroom.
The apartment can comfortably accommodate four people. The bedroom has one queen size bed with the most incredible mattress, a recent purchase I will never regret. I will provide a set of towels and bed linen.
The living room has a dining table, which sits six and a large plasma TV with a good selection of channels. A spare bed comfortably sleeps two without too much of a squish, I can vouch for it as have slept on it myself on more than one occasion. It can be wheeled about the flat and placed in either a bedroom or living room depending on your requirements.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need from pots and pans and cookery books (about 60 of them) to Nespresso coffee machine to give you that boost! There is also a washing machine/dryer, toaster and a kettle and, of course, a well tested oven.
The bathroom has been recently renovated and has a well sized shower cabin.
Please, note that I give preference to longer stays, a week and over.
If you are looking for accommodation of one month and over email me directly with possible dates of your stay. I will be working abroad in 2014 between one and four months and would be interested in renting the apartment out to one person/family during that time.

Great host who delivered on her promises. Everything was as described. Lovely apartment and would highly recommend.
Great apartment, great location, great host. Will definitely stay again!
What a great apartment. Sara was in contact with us during our trip. She met us at the apartment and explained all that was required. The apartment is exactly as in the photos. Very clean, very nicely furnished and very comfortable. Great location with several tube stations and bus stops in walking distance. Close to Marylebone High St with supermarkets and lots of restaurants. Short walk to Oxford Street. Would definitely stay there again.
The location is unbeatable. Everything is close by, and we've enjoyed the ample options of restaurants, cafés and grocery shopping.
The flat itself is also welcoming. My wife and I were traveling with a baby, and the space was very comfortable, with more than enough room to set up our travel crib and move about. As it was our first experience abroad with the little chap, relying on that space was valuable.
Sara was incredibly welcoming and easy to reach. We haven't met in person, but she had everything ready for us when we arrived, and there was a family member waiting to show us around.
If you're thinking about some other options, don't: you'll hardly do better than this.
Sara met us on time as planned at the flat and gave us a guided tour of her apartment. Flat was spotless and has a simple layout with large lounge and bedroom.The flat seems larger than the photos suggest. The campbed is perfect for small kids, our 5yo was delighted as Sara had some toys ( lego) + a box of bears :)
The king size bed is so comfy- fresh linen etc.....a sound nights sleep is guaranteed. Handy to have a kitchen to do a spot of cooking.
The location is perfect, 5 min walk to MLB High St and a 3 min walk to various bus stops ( 453 is perfect ), takes you to Regent St, Trafalgar Sq and on to Westminster etc. If you ever need a taxi there will be one on the street within about 2 mins of waiting.
I would definitly use Saras flat when back in London as its a very safe area, with good shopping/eating and travel options.
Many Thanks Sara. Px
