great location, close to many top areas of London, very nice building and apartment, we strongly recommend this place
Athena has a delightful flat in one of the best locations in Central London and is an impeccable hostess. We cannot recommend it more highly.

This is a lovely flat in the best neighborhood in London, two blocks from Sloane Square. What a find. We spent 8 nights here and were very pleased.
It’s a very nice building with lifts, and a friendly doorman present at all times. You’re on the sixth floor overlooking The King’s Road, facing NW. (However, the road noise didn’t bother me much.)
The flat has hardwood floors. You’ve got a living room with fold-out double bed, (but not much extra room when it’s open.) There’s also an armchair and a dining table. The roomy bedroom has a double bed, and lots of drawers and closet space. The bathroom has a tub/shower, and there’s a perfectly fine kitchen. It’s handy having a clothes washing machine. And bring your sheet music along, as there is an electric piano.
Dealing with your host, Athena, is a very pleasant experience. She is thoughtful and very responsive. It feels as though you’re staying as a guest in the home of a family member, only she’s not in at the moment. (This is different from the many flats rented-out full time by agencies.)
The Sloane Square area is filled with nicer retail stores. We felt safe at all times.
The neighborhood features multiple artisan bakeries and espresso shops, as well as a variety of restaurants. (For breakfast items/coffee, I recommend Paul’s french bakery, a bit west on The King’s Road, but Gail’s Bakery is most definitely worth the longer walk to the west.)
The Sloane Square tube stop is on the District Line, which is extremely convenient to most any tourist activities you will want to do in central London.
Although not inexpensive, the price seems reasonable to me for the location and what you get. (You will be living in a neighborhood of homes that sell in the millions of pounds.)
You cannot go wrong renting this place!
Athena's flat is well located in a safe and secure building close to the tube and to plentiful bus services. It is very comfortable and well appointed. Athena responded rapidly to my last minute search for lodgings and, although I never met her or talked with her, we effectively liaised via the airbnb messaging system. Picking up the key was very easy.
My trip was for business and I needed a good wifi connection which this apartment has - far superior to the hotel I was in previously.
The flat would be excellent for holidaymakers due to its great location and the flat does have excellent views down the the Kings Road (which has some road noise which sensitive types may wish to consider).
From my experience I have no hesitation in recommending Athena and her apartment.
Con mi familia nos sentimos realmente muy bien en la casa de Athena en Londres. Ella había dejado su casa como quien se la deja a un amigo, totalmente llena de detalles que nos hicieron sentir muy cómodos en seguida. Muy confortable y luminoso! Athena un lujo como anfitriona!
I highly recommend Athena's place. Great location, great house, great hostess. We booked the villa for 8 days for a family vacation. The house offers privacy in a beautiful setting, surrounded by pine trees yet it sits very close to Sani resort and benefits from everything the resort has to offer. Athena was a superb hostess, even though we didn't have the chance to meet in person. She was very responsive to any request and really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. We're definitely coming back.
Hello everybody! We were there in august and it was very nice! For children is great and for adults it's relaxing. The house was amazing. We liked it very much. The area is also great. Atena is very friendly. You can go there and it will be a great holiday!
Fabulous location! Although we didn't meet Athena in person, she was a very responsive and helpful host. The real bed in the bedroom is very comfortable and the view is good. One or two minor details need attention but are being sorted, and in our case it was a shame the piano had been replaced by a keyboard. However this is a very convenient place to stay. Recommended!
This apartment is definitely the crown jewel of London’s Chelsea neighborhood – it is literally a few steps to the famous King’s Road shopping district. The Whitelands House building is quiet and peaceful. The apartment has a light and airy feel and we found it to be very clean and well organized. The bedroom is extraordinarily spacious. The bed had pretty floral bed linens and (importantly for us) the mattress quality was excellent.
I would like to mention a few of our favourite discoveries on King’s Road. Our favourite grocery store was Waitrose and we visited Pizza Express more than once for their Margherita Pizzas and Raspberry Sorbet! Our favourite bakery? Definitely Paul’s Patisserie! Their Tartelette Chocolat and Tarte Abricot are still fresh in our memories.
We would highly recommend this apartment to guests who want a quiet, safe, and well cared for environment. Thanks so much again for everything Athena!
Athena will go totally out of her way to make sure guests enjoy their stay, from top linen and immaculate housekeeping service to lovely touches like quality teas and soap. She's just a really lovely and friendly person - I have yet to meet someone as hospitable as she is, and this shows in the level of care she puts in her flat for guests. To top it all off her place is gorgeous, in one of the best areas in London and in a famous portered block, making everything very easy and convenient. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
