London, United Kingdom
Austen, Kensington London
Perfectly located 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom vacation home fully equipped and centrally located in genteel Kensington.
A fantastic base to explore London - a short walk from the green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Holland Park.
While the Austen is located on a small residential street, it's just a few blocks away from a host of prestigious pubs, restaurants, shops and attractions.
Kensington Palace and Gardens, and neighbouring Hyde Park, are located just a 5-10 minute stroll away, as are a collection of top London shops and boutiques along the stylish High Street Kensington.
Austen guests will also enjoy easy access to the world famous Portobello Road Market, as well as iconic sites including Buckingham Palace, Victoria & Albert Museum, the Museum of Natural History and virtually all of London's most beloved icons.
Austen is fully equipped for a most comfortable stay with a master bedroom with ensuite shower room, second bedroom with twin beds (which can be converted to a king) and a sofa bed that can be used as two singles or a king as well. There are TVs and DVD players in all the rooms (note TV in 2nd bedroom is for DVDs only), satellite TV, two high-speed internet channels, Nespresso machine and a fully stocked kitchen.
Please note the apartment is on the 2nd floor (3rd floor American) with no elevator so please take this into consideration if you have mobility issues.

Fantastic location, charming apartment
We LOVED our stay in this quaint little 2-bed room apartment in the heart of Kensington. Owner Melissa was very helpful in her communication pre-arrival and was there to help us settle in to her apartment with tips about the neighborhood and London things-to-do. The apartment is super-centrally located and we loved walking from there to take a bus (100 yards away from bus-stop), tube (5 min walking to Notting Hill station) and of course Uber from our out door-steps. The apartment is small but well appointed and has everything we needed for our London stay. Karthik”
Perfect Home for 4 guests!
We are loving our stay here in this amazing apartment. Well furnished and full equipped, deeply cleaned, near Notting Hill Gate! Just make sure you are fine with steps, because you would have to do 2 floors steps with no elevator. For us is fine! Fantastic place in London center. We appreciated a lot Melissa's welcome! Best Host! ;) Barbara & Leonardo”
