Victoria

The Victoria is an impeccable four bedroom home with a storybook setting in London's exclusive Kensington neighbourhood. Imagine the very best of London living and it's yours at the Victoria. Walk along a charming and quiet residential street lined with beautiful front gardens to reach the Victoria, with its classic London wrought iron railing bedecked with wisteria vines.

Step through the front door to find a soaring entry leading to a large and sunny living room and a gorgeous open plan dining room and gourmet kitchen lined with windows overlooking a lush garden setting. Surrounded by handsome gardens and with the added feature of an outdoor terrace with dining table, it's truly a pleasure to spend leisurely time at home during your holiday in London at the Victoria.

On the first floor you'll find a sumptuous master bedroom with dual king bed and a large en suite bathroom. Next to the master bedroom is the second bedroom with twin bunk beds and a full en suite bathroom. One more level up on the second floor you'll find two welcoming bedrooms, one with a dual king bed and the other with an extra wide queen bed, and between the bedrooms a bathroom with large walk-in shower.

With every comfort of home, your stay at the Victoria will be a highlight of your trip to London! Set in a picturesque spot in Kensington, the neighbourhood is said to have been originally built for Queen Victoria's ladies in waiting. Victoria was born and grew up in the nearby Kensington Palace, which was once the home of Lady Diana and is now the official residence of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

We named the Victoria vacation rental after this illustrious heritage. This was home to a famous English painter, Albert Chevallier Tayle one of whose cricket paintings broke a record selling for over $1mm. His portraits of players were the first of their kind as they actually showed the individual players -- many hang in the National Portrait Gallery. The most remarkable thing is he played cricket with several notable writers including, Arthur Conan Doyle, PG Wodehouse and JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan! You can imagine them gathering at his home to talk about cricket and enjoy each other's company!

You'll be just a short stroll from the gorgeous and expansive Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park in one direction and Museum Row lined with some of the best museums in London in the other direction. Walk to fabulous shopping along High Street Kensington or stroll through Kensington Gardens to Notting Hill or Harrods in Knightsbridge. The Victoria is very near the Tube and tons of bus lines crisscrossing London. Spend your days exploring London and look forward to returning to a gorgeous home setting at Victoria - London living at its very best!
