Originally from England, have lived in New York for over 10 years, but maintain a home in London for my regular work trips.
This is a comfortable and roomy flat in a great location. It's convenient to South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Kathryn and Ray are very good to deal with. Would definitely recommend.
We stayed in Kathryn's apartment for five nights over Christmas 2013. We arrived quite late in the day and were very grateful that Ray was there to let us in and show us where everything was and how things worked. The apartment was beautifully clean, modern and comfortable. My daughter slept on the sofa-bed and said it was really comfortable. The apartment was warm and quiet and very handy to the tube, the museums and Harrods. We would definitely consider staying there again.
I have just spent a week in Kathryn's beautiful flat in South Kensington. By the time I got to London, I'd been on the road in the UK for 4 weeks, staying in some 5 Star hotels. But Kathryn's had the best of everything for me: best bed, best shower, best location, best ambience. A beautifully appointed flat in the finest area of London. Superbly close to the Tube and all the restaurants you could want right around the corner. Also there was always a stream of black cabs (and a taxi rank) at the end of the street. Ray met me in the evening, handed over keys and showed me the lay of the land - it was great to know that he was only a phone call away should anything arise. Perhaps best of all (for me) was just how accommodating Kathryn and Ray were with my check in and check out times - it made such a difference! I cannot wait for my next trip to the UK, so I can get in touch with Kathryn and rent her wonderful flat again.
Was a really lovely apartment and I would definitely stay there again. Kathryn and Ray were so friendly and accommodating too, even though we arrived later than expected due to commute times. Loved the location and surrounding area, perfect for a long or short stay. There is even a gym (Fitness First) literally around the corner if you want that convenience. Perfect London flat.
Our stay at Kathryn's flat in South Ken was one of the best parts of our trip. We felt like we were living in London, if only for 6 days. Ray (keeper of the keys) met us promptly and showed us around. The flat is extremely clean, uncluttered and spacious. Looking at the pictures, I miss it already! Great location from South Ken tube station, 2 minutes to local pubs and restaurants, and close to parks. Extremely quiet and dark - perfect for a great rest after long traveling days! Can't wait to come back.
O apartamento da Kathryn é maravilhoso e super bem localizado. Realmente supera as expectativas em relação às fotos. É perto de 2 metros e do Hyde Park. Muito bem equipado. Tem 2 banheiros, sendo um lavabo, algo muito positivo tb. A decoração é de bom gosto e muito aconchegante. O Ray, amigo de Kathryn que ajuda na locação nos recepcionou muito gentilmente, deu todas as orientações e ainda nos deixou ficar por mais tempo no ultimo dia, ja que não haviam novos hospedes.
We loved this place!!!Thank you Kathryn and Ray!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kathryn's flat. It was tastefully decorated, spacious, and conveniently located. Even on the hottest days, we were able to get good cross-ventilation by opening the doors to the private courtyard. My recommendation to future guests would be to try the sidewalk cafes and bistros on Exhibition Road--just a few blocks away and close to the tube station. All in all, it was a terrific place to stay and I would wholeheartedly recommend it!
Fantastic apartment!!! Thanks so much we had a great stay. The apartment is lovely and large for central London. It was close to the tube, restaurants and supermarket. Was met at apartment and shown through. Highly recommended. Thanks
My husband and I are 61 and were in London for only 4 days and stayed at Kathryn's flat. It was perfect. First off the flat is beautifully done and spacious in my experiences for Europe. Near everything. So easy to get around and some wonderful French, Italian, Indian and other ethnic restaurants around the corner. Saw all the tourist sites and came back in the evening with wine and cheese to relax in this wonderful space before going out in the neighborhood that offered everything we needed. London is very expensive but with using the flat and the neighborhood restaurants it helped.

Kathryn has an awesome ground floor flat in South Kensington that is 5 minutes from the Tube and has numerous restaurants and museums within a 10 minute walk. Check in and out was easy with Kathryn's friend Ray there to orientate us. The apartment is furnished well, clean, and convenient. The bed and sofabed were comfortable and the central patio kept the area ventilated, though there was some noise from the upstairs neighbors. We would definitely stay here again.
