Great Flat with a Great Host!
This is our second time staying at Flat 13 and it did not disappoint. Christian's flat has everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed! Christian was welcoming and helpful from the moment that we booked the stay right to the end of our trip. When you are booking a place to stay in another country, it can be very worrying. Christian answers your emails quickly and is very trustworthy. We have had a lot of VRBO hosts and Christian is the best! Best things about Flat 13: -About 3 minute walk from Earl's Court tube station that takes you to a lot of wonderful places in London via two very popular tube lines - Piccadilly and District -About 5 minute walk to a very large Tesco grocery store -About 7 minute walk to Earls Court Road with a lot of bars and restaurants plus a great Marks and Spencer Food Hall -The bed is the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on -Great/interesting decor (go there and you will know what I mean) including that the flat is in a historic mansion -You get access to the park behind the building -Great host with a lot of recommendations on where to go in London Thanks Christian!

Perfect flat, great location in Kensington
Terrific flat near Kensington just 3 blocks from Earls Court Station - Christian was just an absolutely superb host, made sure we got settled in and provided us with everything we could've asked for. Cannot recommend highly enough, we enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return next year. Thanks, Christian!

A true gem!!!!!
I don’t know where to begin. I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience we had with Christian. The day before we left the States the owner of the place we had originally rented emailed me and said her place had flooded. Luckily Christians place was available and how lucky we feel that it was. We have never had such a responsive owner in all the VRBOs we have stayed in over the years. He not only met us on the curb but checked in on us several times throughout our stay. The apartment was very comfortable and very well appointed. He provided cereal and coffee, Jam and bread as well as water and even a bottle of wine. It was so nice to get in after a long flight and not have to rush to the grocery store. I highly, highly, higlhy recommend this place. You are less than 300 yards from the tube and can get anywhere in London very easily. Thank you again Christian. We will for sure be back!!!!!

Well appointed and great location with great host
Wonderful week stay in this well stocked and comfortable flat that's only an easy 5 min walk to Earls Court underground. Appreciated all of Christian's attention to detail and his thoughtfulness. It made our visit to London very relaxing.

South Kensington/Earl's Court Gem!
Christian greeted us at the apartment and went over everything (i.e. heat, internet, TV, coffee maker, shower, etc.). The apartment was very nicely furnished with many extra touches. He had the kitchen stocked with several breakfast items which we took advantage of and the bottle of wine in the fridge was enjoyed. Nice, quiet bedroom with black out curtains and exceptional bedding made for a great nights sleep. Two minute walk to Earl's Court tube (serving Piccadilly and District lines) which was nice to have a short walk after walking all over the city each day. Many good restaurants within a short walking distance. We also had access to a little park/courtyard area, however, it was a bit to chilly for us to use, but I would imagine in warmer weather we would have taken advantage of it. It was nice having a washer and separate dryer to use after traveling for a few days too. Upon our return home Christian notified me that I left a scarf at his apartment and offered to mail it back to me - thank you! Would definitely recommend Christian's place and stay again upon our next visit to London. Thank you for everything Christian! Warm regards, Madeline & John (November 2018)

Good location. Convenient to transportation & food suppliers. Christian was there to greet us & kept in contact throughout our stay. Best supplied pantry ever. No complaints & everything you could need was supplied - even groceries & a bottle of wine. Definitely on our A list since we come every year. Thank you, Christian.

Very comfortable and centrally located.
Christian is a gracious host and has thought of every little detail to make a travelers stay hassle-free. He has compiled a book of transportation choices, food stores, restaurants, sights, shopping, attractions, etc which made our stay so much more enjoyable! His apt. is equipped with everything anyone might need. We highly recommend Christian's apt!

Christian and Bertrand are superb hosts and their flat is truly amazing! The apartment is very well appointed. It is very stylish, comfortable and pristinely clean. It has all the modern conveniences. The apartment is spacious and the space is used very smartly throughout. There is ample storage and there is a work area where one can do a bit of work without disturbing one’s companions. The kitchen, the bathroom and the entertainment appliances and systems are excellent. The bed is very large and very comfortable and the linens of highest quality. The location is excellent. The entrance to a tube station is only two minutes away and a number of busses running through central London stop nearby. There is a score of shops and restaurants within five minute walking radius, including a number of groceries where one can buy all one needs to take advantage of Christian and Bernard’s chef’s kitchen. Upon our arrival we were met by Christian, who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He helped us settle in and gave a quick informative tour of the apartment. We could always reach him during our stay and he was most helpful. Finally, Christian and Bertrand know and love the city. They have a wealth of knowledge and provide a very detailed and most excellent city guide with list of local attraction and restaurants. Cannot recommend Christian and Bertrand’s flat enough.

WOW, where do I start......First of all, the location of the flat in Earls Court is phenomenal. You literally walk 2 minutes and you arrive @ the tube station which will take you anywhere you want to go. Just a quick walk down the side street and you're on Earl's Court Rd. Here, you'll find an extensive selection of restaurants and pubs to choose from. Just go to any of the restaurants or pubs that Christian recommends in his big white binder and you'll be happy! On that note, Christian & Bertrand spent a great deal of time putting together a binder that gives you an excellent selection and run down of places to go, eat and shop in the beautiful city of London. I can't thank them enough for spending the time to put this together. This was invaluable as it was our first visit to London. Second, the flat itself is remarkable. The flat is located @ Nevern Mansions. This is a historic building in existence since 1890. Talk about charm the moment you arrive....Inside the flat, you'll find the kind of warmth and charm that you imagined and then some once you first laid eyes on the photos from AirBNB. Everything is just splendid from the layout to the finishes of the flat. My wife and I immediately felt like we were at our home away from home. Last but certainly not least, is the fantastic communication we received from Christian prior to arrival. He gave us excellent information and directions that made us feel at ease with traveling to London and arriving at the flat. Once we arrived, Christian greeted us outside the building and gave us a hand with our luggage. Once inside the flat, he went over the operation of the major appliances and offered us a nice cup of coffee from their gourmet bean to cup Delonghi machine. He then answered any questions we had about London, the flat and where to find the best beer in town! As others have mentioned, Christian even went grocery shopping for us prior to our arrival and bought us the essentials and then some for an awesome stay. We are extremely picky people and couldn't have felt more blessed to have found such a beautiful property in a fantastic location. In fact, if I were to purchase a second home, I would definitely look to purchase in Earls Court. I could literally write a book about everything we love about this flat and the location within the London area. If you're reading this and debating about where to stay, your look is over!! We can't wait to return to London and stay in this flat again!

Christian and Bertrand's gracious apartment stands above all others we have stayed in around the world. It's location steps away from a major metro hub, fantastic grocery shopping and good restaurants are only the starters. Their place is extremely comfortable, quiet, and more than well-appointed. We loved being able to experience the good taste of the owners? The bed is extremely comfortable, with luxurious linens and pillows, great storage areas and blackout drapes enabled us to sleep in. The living/dining/kitchen area is filled with quality accessories and appliances, comfortable seating,interesting books and art. The bathroom/laundry area was compact and very comfortable, and the shower was quite good. We didn't expect, and were delighted to be left with tasty goodies and staples of all sorts, and with lovely flowers. Our communication with Christian couldn't have been smoother, and he inquired to make sure we were settled in comfortably. I would ask potential guests only one thing: why wouldn't you want to stay here?! Staying here made our week-long visit to London more than memorable. We'll be back, for sure!

Beautiful flat in great location!
It was nice to retreat to a comfy, well-decorated and spacious home away from home after a long work week in London. Everything was as pictured - clean and modern. And only a block away from Earl's Court station, making it easy to get everywhere on foot.
