We could not have chosen a better place to live during our six month stay in London.

30 Hampstead High Street is a very secure 2nd floor walk up. The flat is clean, with beautiful natural light from several large windows. The open floor plan has beautiful hard wood floors, two large bedrooms, with comfortable beds. It is an efficient, well-appointed flat. It is very tastefully and minimally decorated, which we really enjoyed, preferring that to times when we’ve stayed in someone’s place filled with personal mementos, making it difficult to feel it was “ours.”

The kitchen was small but well appointed, with well-functioning appliances and thegas hob was easy to operate. The clothes washer is reliable and small, but adequate. We air dried the clothing on a sturdy rack provided. The weekly cleaning service was a wonderful extra. Y. did a lovely job and left the flat sparkling each Monday. We just planned to be out of the flat during her visit so we wouldn’t be in the way.

Gerry and Mark are great! They were very responsive and helpful landlords. All of the negotiations were clear and transparent. They made our return deposit very promptly after our stay. Cost of the rental was extremely fair considering London’s skyrocketing real estate. Though they reside in Australia they have good contacts in Hampstead if any problems arise. There is a book of detailed instructions which was very helpful and answered most of our questions.

We were pleased to find a lot of travel guides, a selection of movies, books & CD’s. The internet service was extremely reliable. It was a wonderful convenience to have a printer available for work.

Living on the High St offered easy access to bookstores, stationers, hardware store, Tesco Express, great bakeries--Paul, Gail’s, a number of great pubs (The Flask is highly recommended and right around the corner!) and most importantly the Underground—the Northern Line. This means a quick trip to Central London and easy access to all rail services out of the city. There is a bus stop right outside the flat, but it is not noisy. We were never bothered by street noise except for the typical city sounds of ambulance sirens, etc.

We joined the Keats Community Library which is just a short walk away, and each Sunday walked down the High Street to the Unitarian Chapel to attend services.

There is a real village feel to Hampstead. So much to discover and revel in, right in the neighborhood. Hampstead is a wonderful place to live! Our biggest joy was the easy access to the Hampstead Heath with its wonderful walking paths, hiking, and the beautiful ponds.

Again, we could not have asked for more!

My family stayed in this flat Aug - Dec, 2016 and had the perfect stay. The flat is spacious and has EVERYTHING you need. It is convenient to the bus and the tube. The weekly cleanings are a nice bonus. My family always felt very comfortable walking around and exploring Hampstead. I must say that during the warmer months, it is a bit noisy with the windows open because of how close you are to the bus stop.

Gerry was always very responsive when we had questions. You should not hesitate, if you are considering this flat.

We stayed in Gerry's flat in June of 2014 and had a fantastic time. Myself, my husband, and my two year old greatly enjoyed our stay in the flat. It is a spacious, tastefully decorated place and has all of the necessities but is not cluttered. The location is excellent. It is within walking distance of the tube (2/3 minutes), excellent cafes, shops, and fifteen minutes away from Hampstead Heath (and the Hampstead Heath overground). I had no trouble shuffling between archives in Central London and the National Archives in Kew.

Gerry has been excellent at communicating the expectations of the place and the lease to us. There are no surprises. While Gerry is offsite, she has people in the city who can assist if there are any problems. We had a minor one with the washing machine but apart from that, our stay in this flat was most enjoyable.

I stayed at this beautiful flat for 2 months in spring 2014. The flat is spacious, bright, extremely clean, and well equipped. The neighborhood (right in the center of Hampstead village) couldn't be better - bus stop to London literally under the front window with buses every 5-10 minutes; tube a few minutes walk; easy walking distance to two groceries (M&S Simply Food, and a Tesco Metro), Boots chemist, pubs, restaurants etc. Despite being so central, the flat is very quiet (one neighbor upstairs, one down). I have been planning how to return ever since - thank you Gerry! Excellent Pamela 6/17/2014 3:17:00 PM
This flat was a dream. Windows allow wonderful natural light and it is excellently located with easy bus and tube line and multiple grocery store options within easy walking distance. Hampstead is a beautiful area and the flat is situated within easy walking distance of Hampstead Heath. It is carefully maintained and managed coming fully furnished and the owners kindly allow use of dishes, sheets and all daily living needs. All the furnishings and appliances are of high quality and the full wood floors throughout is ideal for those who prefer to avoid carpets. I stayed 4 months with my daughter and it was an ideal place to work - quiet (the windows are double pained so no noise from the high street) and very comfortably furnished with desks and work space. I wish we could have stayed on! We give it our highest recommendation. Excellent Maria Masucci 12/23/2013 3:13:00 PM
