Clayton was the perfect host and made me feel very welcome from the minute I arrived. The flat was even better than the photographs with a stunning garden and beautiful Christmas decorations.
Also really quiet for being on quite a busy road.
This was my first Air B&B experience so wasn't quite sure what to expect. As it turned out I needn't have worried, everything from the original enquiry through to checking out was managed like clockwork. Clay and Jorge were the perfect hosts, always there to help and offer assistance as needed but never overbearing. I had no real expectations re breakfast so when offered the option of a full cooked meal every morning I was very pleasantly surprised. Not being a huge breakfast eater Jorge's porridge was the perfect way to begin the day.
For what I needed the location was just right, 15 minutes walk to Kensington High Street tube and only 10 minutes walk to Shepherds Bush. Plenty of places to eat locally so unless you really feel the need to go further there's no need to travel far for dinner.
All in all an excellent experience with the perfect hosts, highly recommended.
Well what can I say about Clay and Jorge's apartment except FAB. My room was quiet, and at the back of the apartment and over looked a lovely garden. I also had sole use a good size bathroom. As it was the week end on Saturday and Sunday morning I had breakfast cooked for me, and on Monday, the day I left, I had some food left, for just to heat up. At the end of the road I could get a No 9 or No 10 bus, straight into the West end. Or 2 mins round the corner I could get a tube, and with only one change I was also in the West end. As I was attending a show at Olympia so the location couldn't have been any better, only 2 mins walk around the corner. Next time I'm in London I will definitely be in contact with them!!!
To anyone reading this…
Paul typed, 'Well the description wasn't right, it was even better!' And then he went on to explain why. Unfortunately it only posted the first line of his review. So it's a bit mis-leading.
And he left us a lovely bunch of lilies, which was very kind of him.
See you next year Paul!
I felt really spoiled at Clay's place, even got to enjoy Jorge's home-made Sunday breakfast after a long flight!
Awesome garden suite with glass door and large windows to let the green view in. Amazingly quiet and tranquil sleeping spot (mostly that's what I did, working lonnnggg days during my stay). Definitely recommend.
Clayton and Jorge were the most amazing hosts. They make me feel right and home and nothing was too much trouble for them. They provided me with the quintessential London experience akin to staying at a 5-star hotel, but with a fantastic personal touch. The location in Holland Park is perfect and only a short walk to the bus stop to Shepherd’s Bush Westfield (for all those last minute shopping needs). I have no hesitation in recommending this property and would definitely stay here again next time I visit London (can’t wait!)
It was a wonderful experience to stay in the most beautiful garden flat.
Clayton and his partner are excellent hosts..........
I wish I could have stayed for more longer............
Clayton and Jorge made feel welcome from the moment I stepped into their wonderful garden apartment. The place is as beautiful as the pictures on Airbnb site show- with an added warmth that can only be discovered when meeting Clayton and Jorge in person. The location is excellent for anyone wanting to explore London by public transport or on foot and the breakfast Jorge makes is magnificent. Book this place before someone else does!
