About Me
My wife and I use the apartment as a second home when we are in London, and we know the area intimately. The apartment was completely refurbished in 2016, with a new bathroom, kitchen, carpets and decoration.

I stayed in Ash’s lovely flat for five weeks in October, 2019, and the entire experience was wonderful. The flat is everything Ash notes: clean, well appointed, comfortable, filled with natural light from huge windows, and it is in a great neighborhood. Paddington Station is only blocks away, yet the flat is on the quiet end of the road, close to markets and restaurants. Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are just around the corner, as are multiple tube and bus stops. I was in London alone this visit and always felt safe in the neighborhood and in the flat. Ash is a great landlord, attentive and quick to respond to questions. I highly recommend getting in touch with him if you are looking for a comfortable flat in London with all the amenities.

This is a comfy, quiet flat whose location cannot be beat! It's on the first (second, in the US) floor, with high ceilings and tall windows overlooking a leafy, and quiet (no buses), street. Several tube stops are with a ten-minute walk away, as are large grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, and Paddington Station (with Regent's Canal access just behind that). There is a bikeshare stand on the corner, and Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park is also a short walk away. The flat has been recently renovated, and features a very clean kitchen and bath. I am a writer and enjoyed working here, and my six-year-old son loved being so close to the park's playgrounds. The landlord is attentive and responsive. We loved staying here and will do so again!

I rented this flat from January 15 to April 15, 2018 and I can't recommend it highly enough. It is bright, spacious, extremely well-maintained, and beautifully decorated. It has a full kitchen as well as a washer/dryer. The location is also ideal. It is situated on a quiet, residential street but is only a five minute walk to Paddington Station, Hyde Park, Lancaster Gate, and the Queensway (which has lots of great shops and restaurants). Ash was the perfect host. He was amazing to deal with, and he even provided a comprehensive welcome guide with all the necessary details for the flat as well as recommendations for nearby shopping and restaurants! If I ever have the opportunity to return to London for an extended stay, I will without question look to rent this flat again. Excellent James W 5/10/2018 5:44:00 PM
I highly recommend renting from Ash. We stayed in his flat for 4 weeks in March 2017 and absolutely LOVED everything about it. Ash is kind, and great landlord (will help you with anything you need). It's perfect for a couple or 3 people, for any length of visit. It feels much bigger than its actual size, because it has a lot of light coming from the hugh windows, and the ceilings are very high. It has everything you need—a fully equipped kitchen (the fridge, dishwasher, microwave and clothes washer/dryer are all tucked in there!); wifi; tv; a landline phone, a safe; plenty of storage space everywhere you need it. Though it's on the front of the building , is a quiet street. Light pours in during the day and blackout curtains keep it dark and quiet at night. It has a small working/studying room with a futon bed-sofa (if you ever have guests), very convenient if you want your independence. I also really appreciated the fact of having a separate kitchen (to avoid noises of washingmachine, and smells during cooking).And the location cannot be beat! 5 minutes walk to Hyde Park, 15 minutes to Notting Hill and 20-25 to South Kensington and all the Museums there. And in so easy reach of city centre London and everywhere else you might need to be (thanks to several Underground stations close to it and many bus lines), you could even walk to Oxford Street in 20 minutes. My "commute" to the British Library took about 20-25 minutes door-to-door. And everything you need is an easy walk from the flat: grocery stores (including Marks&Spencer, Tesco and Sainsbury's stores), pharmacies, restaurants, cafes, delis, French bakery, dry cleaners, cinemas, and so on. Honestly, I can't recommend this flat highly enough! If I make another long trip to London, I'll be contacting Ash again. Excellent Karmele 4/3/2017 2:57:00 AM
