Response from Maria:

Hi Peter, Thanks for your review.
Please let me specify to other possible guests that the nearest tube station, West Kensington Station is 3-4 minutes walk from the front door and not 10 minutes as you say in your review as it is literally 350 meters from the front door. I imagine you can even take 30 minutes if you are a slow walker though. I feel it is important that if anyone else reads your review won't get deterred that they have to walk for such a long time.
There are two other tube stations within walking distance, those are Olympia at 500 metres and Barons Court under 700 metres. There are plenty of buses nearby which are fun to ride as it goes through one of the nicest neighbourhoods of London, that is Kensington, to get you to the very centre of town or other areas of interest within 30 minutes or less.
On the other hand the house is spacious, more than any London and/or big city houses. It is not a mansion as you would have to pay much more for that, but all is in good proportions. So even a big group won't feel cramped up.
Then there is a shower room with a double sink where two people can brush their teeth at the same time. I imagine if you are all happy even a third person can shower at the same time. :) The second bathroom is smaller but is a complete bathroom, then again if you are close enough, one can use the toilet or brush teeth while the other showers... There is separate toilet which is big enough for only one person, I don't think it should be any bigger. Then there is a sink in one of the "small rooms", the one that is 16 square metres without counting the wardrobe and sink space... There is a king size bed in that bedroom too.
Even the study room is spacious enough to have an extra single bed on the floor area and still have space to dress, place your clothes in the wardrobe provided and sit on a chair.
However and whenever you are travelling with a big group, you have to organise yourselves in a way that you can minimise the time of getting ready so nobody has to wait for too long for the others to be on time. The entrance is big enough for one person at the time, I'm afraid, but I can't possibly change that. If I could, I would.
Finally, I want to thank you for smoking in the terrace area. I do appreciate it. the house did not smell as bad as other times when smokers who have left the place smelling like an ashtray although they know that smoking is not allowed in the house. But yet again, smokers don't realise how much their habit smells either... :)

You are more than welcome back.

Thanks Sophie!

I know the toilet needs to be changed at some stage. It needs to be flush with determination :) I say, but it works. Little by little I am improving the house. Thanks for letting me know. You are all more than welcome back. It was nice to have met you all! Good luck with the baby, babies!

    A great central place to explore the city while staying in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. Live like a Londoner. Great for all categories. Great for corporate groups as well as families/friends.
