Perfect Location!

by Robin Andrew

The Shelley is the perfect London home away from home. Nestled between lovely Holland Park and Kensington Gardens it’s a walker’s paradise. The flat has all the amenities for a comfortable stay in a neighborhood that is conveniently located near food shopping, restaurants and the underground. We will definitely come back on a future trip to London when we can enjoy the outdoor patio.

A Charming Apartment

by Amy Jordan

The Shelley is a lovely, cozy apartment in a location that can’t be beat. My husband walked in Kensington Gardens every day and hated to part with it. I love to cook and having so many choices for grocery shopping on Kensington High Street was wonderful, as was having the modern kitchen to work in. Being within walking distance of two different tube lines was very convenient, allowing easy access to all of London. The staff of London Perfect was very helpful at every step. We look forward to working with them again.

Great Stay at the Shelley

by Amy

First time using London Perfect and no pun intended but it was perfect. The apartment was wonderful! We wanted for nothing. On a wonderful little side street so while quiet it was close to shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We loved being close to Bayley & Sage as well as Whole Foods. And having the High St. tube so close was an excellent perk. I would definitely book through London Perfect again!

Ideal London Base

by Keith Mowatt

The Shelley was perfect for our stay of two weeks. It is a very well appointed flat with an incredible location, steps to the High St and tube. We loved the neighbourhood with shops and restaurants so close by as well as a charming little pub across the street. Opening the window blinds every morning to see the spire of St Mary's Church was just lovely, and listening to the church bells ring on Sunday mornings was so nice too! The flat has lots of storage space for guests clothes, the shower is spacious and had great water pressure, the kitchen is stocked with all the required needs to cook in the flat. We would happily stay in the Shelley again!

Delightful flat and ideal location

by Anne Dilley

My husband stayed in the Shelly for six nights in August/September and found the apartment and location to be ideal. The flat is small but cozy and well appointed - modern kitchen and bathroom, pleasing furnishings, very comfortable bed. The location is charming and quiet, yet only a 5 minute walk to high street with all the shops, restaurants, and groceries (Whole Foods!). As usual, London Perfect was as their name states - Perfect! We are repeat London Perfect guests and in fact have another upcoming trip to London, staying in a London Perfect rental, always our first choice.

Nice Apartment in a Great Neighborhood

by Emory & Laura Boyd

This apartment was perfect for a week-long stay in London; plenty of room for 2 and well-appointed. Great location - plenty of shops/restaurants nearby and only a 5 minute walk to the High Street Kensington Tube station.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful neighborhood!

by Michael Moore

Shelley is a charming little apartment in an equally charming neighborhood. We loved the nearby shops and the church walk down to Kensington High Street. Kensington Palace and Gardens were beautiful and memorable. We loved the Ivy and Castle and Elephant pub so close by. We didn't take advantage of the outdoor dining area due to bad weather, but the rest of the kitchen and apartment were great. I need that espresso machine - wow! Thanks to all of the London Perfect staff for being there for us, and for the lovely birthday gift for Jackie.

London Love at the Shelley!

by Allyson Slee

We were extremely pleased with the Shelley! The location is central to just about everything. The tube station is just around the corner if you need it. The flat is in a lovely residential neighborhood, which made us feel like locals. I have used Paris Perfect and now London Perfect and the service, communication and accommodations are exceptional!
