“Excellent - feels like home”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Mark's flat near Pimlico.

The three bedrooms were comfortable, large, private, and had great closets to store items for the week. The bedding was clean and soft, the mattresses great after a long day of sightseeing.

The downstairs TV area was great for a group of five watching the World Cup. The remote was easy to operate, and it was really nice to be able to play music while playing games, too.

The bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The automatic lighting and flush system were very modern and convenient. The hot water was plentiful and the water pressure was substantial. And the towels supplied were so large and lush!

The kitchen is bigger than what the picture indicates. It was very clean and nice. Everything we needed for cooking was included. The dishwasher was an especially nice bonus for our larger group. The freezer was unfortunately already full so we couldn't utilize that space, but we reconfigured some items and made some space. It would have been optimal to sit outside on the front porch for dinners, but we couldn't due to construction (maybe next time!).

The surrounding area is safe and very fun. The daily food market down the street (towards Victoria Station) offers delicious, cheap food. We had lunch for 3 pounds a person on our first day in London. The Tesco Metro is not far from the flat, and the pharmacy next door is really convenient. There is also a bakery and pub next door. The area has a very local feel, which we really enjoyed.

Mark was very attentive each time we needed assistance or had a question. He was very kind in making sure we felt at home. The giant map of London in the kitchen and the giant Tube map in the hall were really useful in planning our days.

Overall, we really enjoyed our time in the Pimlico flat and would highly recommend it to anymore visiting London! It felt just like home.

“Ideal~ great place to stay in London”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The condo/apartment was perfect for a short stay to London. Very easy access to the underground and easy walking distance to multiple sites Several shops and restaurants close by. Nice and quiet and very comfortable with all the amenities necessary. Mark was great, as was Tom, his son who met us on arrival. Quickly responsive to emails and phone calls. We spent 3 nights and were very comfortable.... almost home away from home. There is some scaffolding and road work going on which was unexpected but will probably improve the stay in the future. Overall would highly recommend the rental for anyone looking for a relaxing stay in London with a great friendly but involved owner!!

Overall is excellent and Mark has been very helpful. The scaffolding outside the house doesn't look pleasant but it doesn't affect our stay. The house inside is good afterall

“Great Place, just like home!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A great place to stay- very central, easy for transport, easy to walk to destinations ( Tate National, Houses of Parliament etc). The flat is recently renovated, well appointed and had everything we needed for a great stay. Mark was very easy to deal with and it was very helpful to meet his son on arrival and get a few tips on local eating places, supermarkets, etc.
A great base to explore London. would have loved to stay longer and would definitely recommend to friends.

Thanks for your great review, we are delighted you had a great trip to London.
All the windows (except the kitchen) have Venetian blinds for privacy and to keep the majority of the light out when required. Due to the odd configuration of the windows these do not keep out all the light, in response to this we shall be ordering black out blinds to attach to the windows of the bedrooms.

Mark has welcomed us warm fully with some delicious cakes and ...wine and champagne in the fridge;-) He was helpful and gave good advices.
The apartment is very well located, pleasantly renovated and practical; we found 2 large maps (London and its subway) on the wall and a lot of details and explanations in the guest book.
The kitchen is fully equipped, like the bathrooms; the bedrooms have new beds (very comfortable) and luxury linen, a lot of space in the cupboards too. The living room is nice and has a special touch!
We would stay again in Mark's apartment!
Only one point: the bedrooms would need curtains: it's too bright in the morning!
