This flat is fabulous! It was our first time booking a vacation rental and it was a completely stress-free process. The rental agency was great with their attentive contact beforehand and also when our greeter Anna met us at the flat upon our arrival. *** Thank you Anna, you were awesome! *** The agency provides an informative welcome packet and the thoughtful flat owners provide all of their appliance manuals. This was very appreciated as the appliances in the UK are quite different than those in the US. Do yourself a favor and just take a few minutes to read the manuals before tackling any cooking or washing chores :-) Having a washer/dryer inside the flat was especially nice!
The location of the flat is great. Pimlico Station is a 2-minute walk. You can see the station from the living room's floor-to-ceiling windows. It's a gorgeous view day and night! There are lots of restaurant choices right on the same block. Pret A Manger is very close as well. They have ready-made fresh sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts, coffee, and tea. It was helpful to have a small grocery/convenience store a few doors away. A full-service grocery store, Sainsbury's, is a quick 1/4 mile walk. It was one of the nicest grocery stores we've been to. I wish we had Sainsbury's and Pret A Manger in California! So many places are walk-able from the flat but Black Taxi's and UBER are also readily available.
The flat itself is modern and efficient. It's much bigger than the photos show. It has great natural light and also has nice, bright lighting for nighttime. The windows and balcony open for wonderful breezes. The water pressure in both showers was strong. My husband is very particular about water pressure whenever we travel :-) He said it was perfect! Having a lift/elevator was a lifesaver.
Don't hesitate to ask the concierge in the building's lobby for any assistance. The two gentlemen that we saw during our 8-day stay were very nice and great to talk with. Thanks to you both!
A very big thank you to CHR for such a positive vacation rental experience. We fully recommend this flat to everyone! We will definitely book through you again on our next journey. Thank you to the flat owners as well. We had a beautiful family vacation thanks to you all!
Sometimes the photos of places to rent for holidays overseas look too good to be true - and generally are! However, that is not the case with this flat - what you see is what you get! By Australian standards it is small, but it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Well-fitted out kitchen, great bathrooms, comfortable beds, air-con in main living space and master bedroom, plenty of hanging space for clothes, clean, windows that open, fantastic location - just a great place to stay. Louise, our meeter/greeter, had supplied some very welcome basics to get us through the first night, and was very welcoming, with great ideas and good advice. Our only very small gripe - it was quite warm, even at night, and there were doonas on the beds which were too warm to sleep under, as we did. It like to run the aircon at night. We’d suggest providing top sheets to accommodate the summer temperatures. But, if we return to London, we would certainly hope to stay there again. Many thanks to Anne-Marie and Louise at Coach House Rentals and to the owners.
This is a perfect place for a week in London. A short walk to Victoria Station, Sainsburys,Tesco, and many Restaurants!
The apartment has all the amenities, comfortable beds.
We wanted a home-away-from-home for our stay in London. This flat was the perfect choice! The view from the 7th floor was lovely. The beds were clean and comfortable. The living area was modern and cozy after a long day of sightseeing. But what I liked best was the well-outfitted kitchen that had everything we needed to provide intimate family meals for our daughter - who had been living in a dormitory for the school semester. The location was just right - quiet at night, but a quick few blocks to Victoria Station, and all of the Westminster sights. Anne Marie could not have been nicer or more thorough in her welcome and necessary instructions. We hope to be back again soon!
