"We had a wonderful stay over Christmas at this well-positioned property. We booked over a year in advance and throughout that time the communication with London Perfect, the team that manages this property, was excellent. They were very professional, courteous, and comprehensive.
The house is in South Kensington, a very upscale, understated, quiet area where a lot of embassies are located. It's an easy 10 minute walk to the Gloucester tube station.
The home was well appointed and very comfortable. The beds were a bit hard but the linens were nice. There was a problem with the TV that took a day to fix and also a drainage issue with the shower that we reported so it could be addressed. There was lots of hot water and the space was well designed. Even though there was the 3rd bedroom with twin beds for our 12 year old, he loved sleeping in the perch up on the 3rd floor. It's not a full room per se, but more like a comfy cubby that he loved and felt was his own hideaway.
The space looks larger in the photos and I have found this to be true of most HomeAway/Air BnB rentals. There was a small Christmas tree (very sweet and really helped set the holiday ambiance) and cozy blankets. The dishwasher worked well but the washer and dryer took longer to complete cycles than we were accustomed to.
The pub next door, The Queen's Arms, is not to be missed! The manager and employees are incredibly friendly and the pub itself is as authentic and off the tourist path as you can get. Also, the noise from the pub quiets down early and didn't interfere with our rest.
We did use Lushi, the driver recommended through London Perfect, and we were very pleased that we did. Like London Perfect itself, Lushi was easy to communicate with, prompt, and very professional. It was so nice after getting in from a trans-Atlantic flight to have someone meet us and bring us to the house. Also, the prices were comparable to a cab and there was so much more provided in service in terms of meeting us at the arrival area.
London Perfect emailed us with a neighborhood guide that was *very* comprehensive and helpful. Definitely take the time to study this before you go.
This was a fabulous trip that was successfully facilitated by this lovely home and London Perfect. Although there were some quirks as mentioned above, they were more than made up for by positives. We are glad we stayed at the Middleton."
