Mike was really accommodating with my last-minute request and the flat was absolutely immaculate. Such a lovely and cosy alternative to a hotel. I really enjoyed the absolute peace and privacy away from an extremely busy two days of conferencing. The perfect hideaway. The flat is homely, lovely and really well provisioned. I'd definitely stay again if allowed!

Mike's place lived up to the billing 100%. Great kitchen and bath, cozy bedroom, excellent location a short walk from two major subway lines, plenty of shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. Mike was a truly attentive host.

The place was very convenient to get to places in central London and near to Heathrow airport as well. Mike was a great host, he waited up for me at the apartment as I was arriving on a late flight and even got delayed at the train station with no means for contact. Overall, the stay was pleasant and worth the money!

Sorry I comment late cause I just come back home. It was really lucky that I met Mike for my first reservation on airbnb! It was a lovely week. The apartment is exactly as Mike described on the website, which is tidy, cozy convenient and quiet! The neighborhood is friendly and the location is so great with 24-hour open supermarket and multiple subways and buses near around. It is also near the museums,such as V&A, the natural history museum...Mike is a nice guy. Everything was arranged so considerately that made me feel like at home. The most important thing is the place is safe! When I came back to London from Edinburgh, I booked a hotel near the railway station.However it was not safe enough and made me feel nervous. I wanted to call Mike at that time to ask him if he could rent me the apartment again. I didn't do that because it was so late and I didn't want to bother Mike. I flew back home the next (URL HIDDEN) compared with the last 2 days I spent in London, that week spent at Mike's was s(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) much more amazing! I've already recommended to my friend and I will book the apartment again if I go to London next time~~~

Great value for money as I could enjoy the whole flat, plus de roof-terrace on my own. The other tenant had totally different schedules and we hardly ever met. Beautiful park with trees and squirrels, which can be seen form the living room and kitchen windows, and all this, right in the middle of Earls-Court!
