Fred and Iris were extremely communicative as the timeframe for our rental approached - even detailing some additional construction going on around the exterior of the apartment. The place is exactly as the photos appear and very accommodating. Fred provides a huge binder documenting all features of the apartment as well as recommendations for everything in the surrounding area (restaurants, attractions, travel suggestions). The apartment made an excellent home base for our travels and was conveniently located to everything we could possibly need.

“Fantastic London Apartment”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My wife and I stayed in London for Xmas 2015 with our adult children. We picked this apartment for its spacious interior and overall facilities to suit 5 adults. Whilst we had a good idea of what to expect, the apartment more than surpassed our expectations on just about every level.

The apartment had all the amenities for a great stay and was perfect for us to prepare a full Xmas dinner for the family which was really important for us. The apartment had everything we needed and more. We had a wonderful Xmas day there.

Otherwise, the location was ideal being only minutes from the Underground and close to major London attractions. There was also an abundance of restaurants and shops within close proximity so it made it very easy to get everything else we needed for the stay.

We would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to future stays.

“Warm and Comfortable”

person found this review helpful

Warm and Comfortable describe both the apartment and the hosts. Fred is a very decent and direct man, not given to flowery explanation, but extremely efficient in movement and actions. Iris is a sweetheart, radiating kindness, and a ready smile. Both of them exude warmth and honesty. In my opinion, excellent hosts.

It follows that their apartment is clean, fresh, cozy, and warm. Thanks to you both for framing our stay in London with a home base we thoroughly enjoyed.

“Perfect perfect perfect”
Reviewed October 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This gorgeous flat is just like being at home and is in a great location close to trains, buses, shops and lots of restaurants. The flat is not only beautifully furnished and the fridge and cupboards fully stocked, there are Oyster cards provided, free internet, cable television and about a zillion DVDs in case you want a night at home. This is the second time we have stayed here and I would not stay anywhere else. Excellent - ten out of ten!

“Outstanding Flat in a Perfect Location”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife, 2 children & I recently spent 2 weeks in Fred & Iris's lovely flat. We wanted a home base for our England Holiday and their place really fit the bill. Located in Bayswater , walking distance from Paddington Station, made this the perfect headquarters for our English Adventure. Fred was kind enough to meet us at Paddington, where we disembarked from The Heathrow Express. A quick walk to the flat and we were there. This Garden Apartment in a large building is spacious and comfortable. 3 Large bedrooms gave us all a little alone time and everyone was pleased there were 2 full baths. A large living room, dining area and full kitchen(with laundry facilities) complete the flat. In addition there is a lovely center garden(courtyard) with doors and windows facing it so every room in this lower level flat have natural light and fresh air. Fred & Iris thought of everything to make your visit easier & more comfortable.

From Oyster(travel) cards, to umbrella's to a stocked fridge & pantry(replace what you use please). With flat screen TV's, DVD players, Games & Books they have thought of everything to entertain you when you are in the flat.

As for the location, it is so convenient. It's proximity to Paddington insures you will wait no more than 30 seconds for a Taxi. There are restaurants & shops all within an easy walk. Some favorites, Bizzarro on Praed a 50+ year old fabulous Italian restaurant. The Gold Mine on Queensway(best duck in London) to Angelus(high end French) on Bathhurst St the choices abound. Another plus is Paddington Station. You can get to Heathrow, Bath, Windsor, Oxford and many other places all from here. We are so pleased that we found Fred & Iris and we endorse this property whole heartedly

“Fantastic Vacation !!”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The rental was as described. Fred was very professional and he is an example of what customer service should be. The apartment had all the comforts of home. It is really your home away from home. Great location with very access to everything you can think of.

Thanks Fred and Iris for making our vacation great!! Will definitely stay here next time.

“Five star accommodation in the heart of London”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment is centrally located and has direct links with Heathrow via Paddington station. The Heathrow Connect is well priced and fast. Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) found it very easy to navigate. Once at the apartment, the tube and buses are easy to navigate and take you directly to most of London's major attractions. Hyde park is only a short walk down the road. The apartment itself is very well appointed, exactly as described on Trip Advisor. The positive reviews are true! We took our time going down the stairs to the front door entry and exercised common sense. Every basement apartment in London has narrow stairs - a way of life that you just have to get used to in the UK. Once in the apartment it was very cosy and soundproof. We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night "home away from home" as it had everything you could possibly need plus more. Good WiFi connections and a landline phone with free numbers made it possible to keep in touch with Australia. A washing machine and dryer also came in handy and saved us plenty of time. Fred (the owner) was very attentive, greeting us on arrival and getting us settled in to the area. There are many good local places to eat and shop. We could not fault our stay and would definitely book again.
