WE'VE GOT AN AWARD!
Plum Guide Star is like the Michelin Star for Vacation Rentals. This home has been tested by hospitality experts against 150 criteria including: great location, great beds, great living room, great host, great restaurants, great bars, great vibes and great value. Only 1 in every 100 homes is given this award, so you can be confident that this is one of London's best holiday homes.
LOCATION - You will be right in the heart of zone 1. The apartment is situated in a beautiful tree lined Regency terrace in the heart of London's most exclusive Knightsbridge area with London's premier attractions only a short distance away. The world famous Harrods department store is just few steps away and Harvey Nichols leads onto the renowned Sloane Street where you will find all the world famous boutiques.
For culture and entertainment the Victoria & Albert, Science and Natural History Museum are just five minutes walk away. Beauchamp Place is just around the corner with its fabulous choice of restaurants and boutiques. Hyde park and Buckingham Palace are also within walking distance.
THE SPACE - I am an interior designer and have had great fun completely renovating this spacious (105 sq m) apartment. With regards to the design, we have tried to give the apartment as much personality as possible whilst appealing to a broad range of tastes. The design is bright and breezy, clean and uncluttered. It's eclectic, modern and Midcentury. I used to have an art gallery - so there are also plenty of interesting art works on display to capture your interest.
But it's not all about style, comfort is also key for our guests. So in the spacious living room there is a large comfy sofa in the lounge for guests to use - where you can put your feet up in the evenings, kick back and relax! The living area is also home to the dining area, which is the perfect spot to enjoy some local delicacies.
Top tip: try out the magnificent food halls in Harrods (steps away) - you will be sure to take home some edible goodies from here!
If cooking a gourmet meal at home is more your thing, then rest assured the kitchen will have everything you need in it including oven, induction hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and even a Nespresso coffee machine (a huge Nespresso boutique is just on your doorstep!).
We provide all the basic condiments, and as an added extra we make sure that there is also always plenty of tea and sugar so that you can make yourself a traditional British cuppa in the morning! And so you don't need to rush out to the shops after a long journey, we provide you with a welcome pack of essential snacks. We really want to ensure that you have a comfortable stay here in London!
There are two bedrooms in the house. The master bedroom has a super king sized bed (mattress size is W2m x L1.8m) and a stylish private conservatory space for enjoying tea, reading or dressing.
The second bedroom has a double bed (mattress size is W1.4m x L1.9m) and is located at the back of the flat with a luxurious walk-in shower. Both bedrooms are uniquely designed so you get a feeling of luxury staying here.
Block-out curtains and blinds ensure you don't get woken up too early by the light. There is also plenty of storage space for guests to store all their belongings. Guests using the rear bedroom may use the wardrobe in the hall.
The property also benefits from 2 ensuite bathrooms. Both bathrooms are bright and contemporary in style and one has a bath (which really is a real treat in central London!) and another a walk-in shower. The bathrooms will always come stocked with plenty of white fluffy towels and all the essential toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel and hand soap that you need to ensure that you have a comfortable stay in London.
The apartment has its own private entrance. The apartment is on the lower ground floor. Whilst I can definitely say that this is not your typical basement apartment as the rooms are so spacious and bright, there are a few outdoor stairs down to the apartment which may make it unsuitable for people with mobility issues.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

The closest tube station is Knightsbridge which is less than 2 minute walk away from the apartment. This is on the Piccadilly line. This means that on these lines you can get directly to famous London sights such as Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Buckingham Palace (get off at Green Park tube station to get here!) Travellers coming from far and wide will also be pleased to know that you can hop on the Piccadilly line straight to Kings Cross St Pancras station - for national and international trains, and hop on in the other direction and you arrive directly to Heathrow terminals 2, 3, 4 & 5. This is London’s busiest airport and living here means you are so conveniently located to it. Make the most of that extra time by shopping, sightseeing or sleeping!! There are also plenty of buses in the area, which are a great way of traveling if you like to have a peek at your surroundings as you travel.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT THE FLAT:
"Thank you for a wonderful stay! The hosts were exceptionally helpful and have provided a beautiful homely spot in a very central location. The place is so beautiful and very comfortable for a family of four. We loved that it was close to the underground, shops and restaurants. The apartment is equipped with everything you might possibly need and the guest manual is well detailed to help you find all the great places to see and to dine at. The kitchen was so well equipped which meant that having a night in with a home-cooked meal was possible (one thing we really miss when we stay in hotels). We are so grateful to have found this place and hope to come and stay again soon!"

"Thank you so much for having us at your lovely apartment--it was gorgeous and very clean and we enjoyed it so much. One of our best holiday stays! The apartment is exactly as pictured - bright (even for a downstairs apt), well decorated, modern and very clean. The location is super-central and only a 4 minute walk to the Knightsbridge tube station and close to much shopping and grocery stores as well. We would definitely recommend the apartment and would love to stay again in the future."
