THE LOCAL AREA
THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE LONDON AT ITS BEST!!!
OXFORD STREET, the premier shopping street in Europe is under a mile(1km) walk from the apartment. It is one and a half miles(2km) from end to end and is a shoppers paradise. Most shops open 10am until 6 or 7pm. Many also open on Sunday from 12 to 6pm with late nights on Thursday. Oxford Street is best known for Selfridges and the other big department stores which are all found in the section from Marble Arch to Oxford Circus, along with most of the big-name multinationals such as Nike, Primark, Topshop, Apple, etc. It's more of the same towards Tottenham Court Road, but generally on a smaller scale. Oxford Street is said to be the busiest shopping street in Europe.
The section of Edgware Road near to Marble Arch is famous for its distinctive Middle-Eastern character. Lebanese restaurants, shisha cafes and clubs line both sides of the road, with some staying open late into the night. Marble Arch station is a few minutes walk from the southern end of Edgware Road.
Just a short step away from the tourist hordes, the apartment still has the feel of a real neighbourhood, the wealthy residents are becoming ever more attractive as Harley Street, the traditional home of England's best doctors, has recently become the heart of the UK's flourishing plastic surgery industry.
The beautiful architecture (the Wallace Collection is a must) and the open spaces of Regent's Park and Hyde Park make this a fine area to have a wander, when the sun's out there are fewer places in London as scenic and special as Hyde Park.
While Marylebone High Street is absolutely charming, lined with traditional pubs, beautiful boutiques and shops (including the flagship Daunt Books) and excellent local restaurants as well as an impressive mix of hotels - and a farmer's market every Saturday.
A short walk from Marylebone is the home of the most famous fictional detective in the world 'Sherlock Holmes' bachelor flat at 221B Baker Street and the popular waxworks at Madame Tussauds.

Our staying in Carrie's flat was great. The flat is located very much in central London so easy access to everywhere. Overall flat was clen and tidy and the best thing is that the master key lock system. We didn't have to meet or wait anyone to get keys when we arrive. Carrie was great host since we had a
problem with door lock she sent someone right away. I will stay her flaf again when I visit London. Thanks Carrie
Would not book there again!
We didn´t mind that its small.
What we do mind is that the apartment needs care, paint, better linen.-
This apartment sleeps only 3 - there is a sleeping sofa in the livingroom and there is an extra mattress that you pull out and it´s so thin you sleep on the timber (uncomfortable). The keybox outside is most difficult to open to get the key has to struugle a long time. Then it´s there door to the apartment, it locked us inside 2 times,and we had to clime out the window and open from the outside. Then both the TV´s are not working as they should.
And in the bathroom there are insects.
L'appartement est parfaitement conforme à la description. Très bien placé dans le centre de Londres, il permet de visiter cette ville très facilement et, de plus, situé dans un quartier extremmement calme, il permet un repos parfait.
L'appartement est très bien situé pour visiter Londres et idéal pour j'en famille de 4. Malheureusement il n'est pas bien entretenu et nous avons dû le quitter au bout de 2 nuits: le canapé lit était cassé (plusieurs lattes manquantes) et la propriétaire (que nous n'avons jamais rencontrée) n'as pas fait les réparations demandées par nous et Airbnb. Inacceptable!
The apartment is close to the centre of London. This is its most important quality.
For the price, the quality is good. It is small for 4 adults, but we were there with our 2 kids (12 and 5 years old). I recommend this option, 4 adults will be difficult to live in for more than 2/3 days, especially because the bed in the living room is broken, so if you are a normal guy in the bed, it can be complicated to have a good night. For the rest, everything is working well and there is everything in the apartment except a dishwater. But for the price, it is still a good deal.
Concerning commodities, there is a system forgetting the keys without Carrie to be there. It is very convenient, because it allows flexibility. When the apartment is available, you can get there and when you leave, you don't have to wait for Carrie.
So, we have never seen Carrie.
Hope this comment will be useful.
The apartment is bright and friendly, clean and very well situated. The system to get the keys is well done. The place is perfect for two persons. Since there is no storage in the street-sided room, 4 people have difficulties to get along with rather limited space and a tiny (email hidden)e apartment was very well described, except for one crucial detail. In March 2014 one guest complained about the broken slated frame of the 2nd bed. Since we were 4 people, I explicitly asked if that was fixed and pointed out that this was of importance to us. Carrie answered immediately by reassuring that this had been fixed - which was NOT the case. Two of the slides were missing and one other could not be fixed, so that it constantly dropped. Thus we only had 3 beds, which caused a severe inconvenience. So my advice would be to rather rent the place for 2 to 3 people. For 2 people we would rent it again.
Nice appartment! Easy to get keys, other information and to get in contact with the host. We had water coming down from the ceiling in the kitchen, where we had to call. The kitchen equipment could use an upgrade, and the bed in the living room was not the best. The apartment is located very close to the tube and Tesco shops.
