A 3 bedroom house located in a quiet picturesque mews in Pimlico London, just a 10 to 20 minute walk from key London attractions (Buckingham Palace, Tate Britain, Houses of Parliament, Sloane Square). Pimlico tube station is 2 minutes walk away.
This charming and quintessential mews property is located in a quiet residential area in Pimlico. It is located east of St Georges Square and is accessed via Aylsford Street. The mews was home to a very prominent British politician.
St. George's Square Garden and Pimlico Garden and Shrubbery are just around the corner, and the River Thames is nearby.
Guests have full access to the house and its facilities.
Please note that the house is spaced over 3 floors. Bedrooms, toilets and showers/bath are based on the upper 2 floors. This means that the house does not really cater for the elderly, disabled and infirm as the upper floors can only be accessed by a tight spiral staircase.
Families with well-behaved children are very welcome. However if you do decide to bring very young children you are responsible for supervising them on the spiral staircase.
The house accommodates up to 5 guests with 3 bedrooms: The master bedroom has a super-king sized bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a small balcony overlooking the mews. The second bedroom has 2 single beds. A third bedroom can accommodate a fifth guest in a single bed.
The base price is for 4 people; an additional guest costs £50 per night.
A travel cot and high chair can be provided on request. A child less than 1 years old can be accommodated for free, and does not count as an additional guest. However please discuss this in advance as the cot we provide is quite substantial and cannot be located in the master bedroom without difficulty.
A Nespresso coffee machine with complementary capsules is provided
The house has a large fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer which guests are welcome to use. The freezer has an ice-making unit.
Towels and basic toiletries and cleaning products are provided. If you desire them to be changed regularly or require a make up service please inform the host before you arrive as this will need to be arranged and some requests attract an additional cost. An up to date house information document detailing additional services will be provided once a confirmed booking has been received.
Interakcija s gostima
The host is available to answer any questions at any time, day or night and would like to provide a first class service, as far as any airbnb property can offer it. He can recommend local restaurants and take-aways, book cars for you and help you plan journeys and navigate around local attractions. Whilst the host recognises this is not a hotel, nor a BnB in the normal sense, the host manager will endeavour to provide the best service he can. The host recognises that guests needs and requirements are multiple and varied and would like to accommodate them hospitably. For additional fees the following services are offered via the host manager:
1. House cleaning and make up service.
The host manager can arrange for the house to be cleaned and made up as required with bed linen and towels changed if soiled or requested, between 10:00 and 14:00. One weeks notice is usually required for this service, but a *one-off clean may be possible to arrange.
There is a charge of £30 per day for this service inclusive of service charge.
2. *Hair, Nail and Beauty treatments
These can be arranged with therapists coming to the house and providing products and equipment. If you have a special request for a particular treatment or option please state it at the time of booking, so that it can be accommodated. Prices provided on request.
It is essential that guests give at least 2 weeks advance notice of the date and time they require a treatment to avoid disappointment. A list of Treatments and Therapies with prices will be provided at the time of booking, depending on availability. Short notice appointments may be possible to arrange, but guests should call the host to check availability.

There is an additional charge of £20 for this service, payable at check out.

6. Car Parking Space Reservation.
There is very limited availability for car parking immediately outside the property so please check well in advance (see Other Things To Note below). If a car parking space is available the cost is £20 per day. This is a convenience charge which reflects the cost of parking in the nearby car parks.
7. Check-in and Check-out
The host manager requests that check-out is strictly before 11am on the day of departure. *A late check-out up to 6pm may be requested at an additional half day charge, but this must be agreed on the day of booking, and depends on availability.
Check-in is usually after 1pm. Depending on availability an early check-in may be possible.
Please note that payments for additional services can be taken on check-in / check-out via debit or credit card,american express or apple-pay.
8. Premium Business Service
There is an option to request a more exclusive hotel-style business service which will attract an additional charge which is payable in advance or on check-in, and includes a daily cleaning and make up service, provision of a mini-bar restocked daily (consisting of a range of spirit miniatures and mixers, wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks), change of towels daily or as required, luxury branded toiletries, scented products, and other items. This is charged at £80 per adult per day which is inclusive of service charge.
*An additional 12.5% service charge will be added for items asterisked, or if requests are made on or after check-in. Appointments may be cancelled up to 1 week before check-in but will incur a 25% refund surcharge to cover time and credit card charges.
Please note that booked therapist appointments cancelled within 7 days before check-in are non-refundable.
Please be sure that you are able to manage stairs by yourself as the property has a spiral staircase which need to be climbed to access the bedrooms/toilets.
Parking in Central London can be a nightmare. There is no parking in the mews for non-residents, although loading and unloading is permitted.
