We had a wonderful stay in this property. We were ideally located for visiting the museums, The Royal Albert Hall and to eat out at the many wonderful local restaurants. The apartment itself can not be faulted. It was clean and was just how it was described when booking. We will be trying more of your properties in the future.- Allan New Zealand

We had secured a home in June, for a fall trip. In July the owner became ill. We had to find a substitute quickly as I was taking 2 other trips in the interim. Home from Home helped us relocate to a quiet neighborhood in Chelsea--Clareville Grove--with trees and a wonderful little pub at the end of the street. It was 5-15 minutes from our favorite restaurants. We could tell it has been a family home for many years. Everything is exactly where it should be--nothing missing. The kitchen is a dream of function, comfort and elegance. The books, magazines, suggestions for going out, and a comprehensive binder with the instructions to every feature of the house in the little entry office was complete. I cooked a little, enjoyed espresso every morning and spent some time in the garden as well. We met and had conversations with a few of the neighbors. We want to stay here again. Thank you, HFH!- Susan, United States
