Other things to note
Please note that we can provide access to the exclusive Edwardes Square garden:
"One of London's prettiest secluded garden squares. 3½ acres laid out differently from other squares, with serpentine paths by Agostino Agliothe, Italian artist and decorator who lived at no.15 from 1814-1820, and a beautiful Grecian temple which is traditionally the home of the head gardener. Romantic rose tunnel winds through the middle of the garden. Good displays of bulbs and blossom."
This will have an extra cost of £20 per day as it is an exclusive private garden consistently rated on of the best in London - please note it the rate will have to cover the whole stay. This is negotiable for longer term stays.
Please note that we provide shampoo, shower gel, soap and loo roll for the beginning of your stay and not for the entire duration.
Please keep in mind that each home is unique – as you are staying at someone else’s home and not a hotel, the space and amenities will be different at each place.

For brunch why not try Balans Soho Society (7 min) where you will find delicious pancakes and perfectly poach eggs. A tip, they also serve delicious lunches and dinners.
We love the recently refurbished Princess Victoria pub, just 2 minutes from the house. It is the perfect place to get some tapas as it is now under the management of a lovely Spanish lady. But if you are looking for a traditional English pub you have the Scarsdale Tavern (5 min), where you will find the good food and generous portions that have built its reputation as a great place to eat in Kensington and The Hansom Cab, a traditional pub with a weekly quiz night, named after the replacement for the Hackney carriage. For a contemporary gastropub with wood-panelled walls, leather armchairs and a conservatory dining room we recommend The Britannia (5 min).
You will find a Waitrose just a minute away, a Marks & Spencer and a Sainsbury's both under 10 minutes from the flat.
