"The Things they say"

Dear Sally & Nigel,
We spent the last week at the flat in Highbury place in London. On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you both, and Warren Price, for the very enjoyable stay we had at your flat. We really felt at home away from home from all aspects. The actual layout of the flat and all the appliances, exactly as in the web site, the bottle of wine, the games for the kids, the first aid kit (which came into use), the electrical socket adapters, the book & maps about London, the local shopping guide we found in the flat booklet, etc.
All in all your attention to the small details really made our stay very enjoyable in London. We will recommend to family & friends to rent the flat next time they are
in London. Again, thank you very much ! Please feel free to post this in the web site about the flat.
Regards, Paul S. Israel April 08

Dear Nick and Warren,  Thank you for making our recent visit to London the best ever! We appreciated Warren's help, getting us to and from the flat and especially your assistance in helping us host a tea party for a multitude of relatives. We'll be back again! Sincerely, Jane, Joyce and Sophia A. April 06 Balcombe St.

Hi Nick, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the flat! It was so nice it was hard to leave it to sightsee. And of course the location was extremely convenient. If we ever do a similar trip we will check with you first about a flat. Thanks again, Amy W. Mar06 Regent Square, Bloomsbury.

Nick, Many thanks for the flat. We thoroughly enjoyed it and know that some of our friends will also. We hope to be back in Jan 07. PC Feb 06

Hi Nick!

Just a quick note to thank you and Warren for providing us with a great home base for our fun London vacation. It's obvious that you take great pride in your properties and in making your clients feel welcome.  
It's always a gamble when you book things via the Internet but I think what made us feel most comfortable was reading the detailed and down-to-earth information on your website. The "other"rental companies--while I'm sure very good businesses--just don't provide that kind of "personal touch." 
We were happy when we booked with you in 2001 and we remain happy after our latest visit. We hope to see you again soon but if we keep having children, it may be longer than we'd like! My parents along with my sister (who stayed with us last week) will be staying on the 1st floor in March. I'm sure they'll be just as pleased with your service.  Thanks again, Jim and Jodi W. Feb 06

London is good, but your place made it so good, we loved to stay at home. Regards- Irit and Avi E. Nov 05

Dear Warren, Thank you so much for everything ! The apartment was exactly as we was so close to all the stations and the underground. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we could ever need in the way of utensils and appliances.
I was always happy and grateful with your quick email replies to any question I posed to you. Thank you for that Warren .
We had a good trip home... mind you with travelling 20 hours straight with only a 5 hour stopover in Japan we collapsed in a heap on arrival in
Brisbane at 8am. It took us over an hour and a half to get through customs at this end. They are very thorough with checking the baggage and sniffer
dogs everywhere. Luckily they didn't find anything on the J's!!!
Once again Warren thanks so much for making our stay so much more enjoyable. We would thoroughly recommend your apartments to all our friends when they decide to visit London. Regards Annette J. Oct 05

On our last night in London, my 14-year old son said to me, "I've never bonded like this to a place we've stayed in for a vacation before. I'm really going to miss this apartment. Do you think if we return to London we can stay in this same apartment again?" I thought you might like to know that your flat received this rave review! Eleanor B. Aug 04

I was looking for an alternative to a hotel, and was searching online for a short term apartment rental, when I came across Price Apartments. two things struck me right away; It appeared that they had been in business for quite a few years, and they weren't an anonymous corporation. So I started emailing Nick Price to get more information.

From the first few emails, I knew my search was over. Mr. Price answered all of my questions in a timely fashion. I sent him at least half a dozen different messages, and could always expect a answer within 24 hours. We worked together to find an apartment I would be comfortable with, which he offered at a fair and reasonable price. I also opted for the airport
pickup, and everything was all set for our London arrival. It almost seemed too easy, but I was still a little unsure of what to expect.

As soon as we left customs in Heathrow, we were met by Nick's son Warren, who brought us straight to our apartment. On the car ride from the airport, Warren gave us more information about the neighborhood we would be staying in, and pointed out some of the necessary conveniences (super market, internet cafe, local pub) which were all within a 2 minute walk. Any remaining hesitations I had were squashed.

The apartment was exactly as advertised. The pictures and descriptions on the website were 100% accurate. It was clean, comfortable, and totally what we were looking for. I'm very pleased with my whole experience with Nick Price apartments, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone interested in accommodation in London. Nick and Warren run a professional service with a personal touch and they are always available for any questions or requests. I can't wait to plan my next trip!!! Greg B, Providence RI Jan 04

Dear Nick
Thank you for the use of your Putney apartment for the last three weeks. We had a wonderful holiday and really appreciated your most comfortable, well appointed unit, in a convenient location and wonderful views of the Thames.
(With Don's interest in boats and having held a commercial pilots licence you can imagine the views were perfect!)
This third visit to London left us with a much greater appreciation of city life, and we will certainly recommend the advantages of apartment over hotel living.
We also appreciated being able to have Kim spend time with us, and cook her a 'real' meal away from her crowded flat.
Thank you for your honest advertising, it was exactly as you portrayed it!
Very best wishes, Jean and Don J. Jan 04

Dear Nick and Warren,
I am writing to thank you for all of your help in making our trip to London a wonderful lifetime memory for my family. Your kind help in getting the airport pick-up was such a relief and being met by Warren at the flat made us feel so welcome. I truly cannot say enough about how happy we were at 31 Balcombe Street. The flat surpassed my expectations. It could not have been more perfect for our family: we found the flat to be warm, cozy, and comfortable and I appreciated the thoughtful attention to the decor. It gave the girls room to stretch out in the evening and do their homework, talk, write in their journals and play. We used the kitchen every day; it was well outfitted and met all of our needs for breakfasts and evening snacks.

After a long day of sightseeing, or a late night out to a play, we so appreciated the short walk from Marylebone to the flat. I found the neighborhood to be lovely and I felt safe; I liked walking to the market in the morning and found a number of favorite shops. The street was also so quiet and this is such a luxury in London.

Please know that I will be passing on your name to several friends who will be visiting London this summer as well as my relatives who return to England for visits on a regular basis. I also will go on the travel website I used for research to sing your praises.

I have a few housekeeping details. I first wanted to thank you for the mid week clean-up. I did not know it was scheduled, but it was a nice surprise to come home to on Monday. I apologize for the mess in my nieces' room; their teenage habits of dropping anything on the floor must have made it hard to pick up. I trust you found the second set of keys; I had both of them on the table and then in the last minute rush one pair got moved. Let me know if you don't have them. We used the phone for 3 brief local calls; let me know how much they are when the bill comes in. My three nieces used it fairly often to call California and talk to their parents; I used an MCI calling card. I am assuming there won't be local charges for this, but please let me know if I owe you local charges for these calls.

Thank you again for all of your kind help and your lovely flat. Warmly, Julie L. Nov 03

Dear Nick,
Thanks again for your accommodations. The place was great. And I hope to see you next year sometime. There were some minutes on the telephone and I assume you will bill those to my credit card.
Regards, John C. Nov 03

Cheers, Nick...wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed staying in No. 13 at Dalmeny Court.  Loved the "feel" of the flat; it was quite homey and very comfortable.  I have to share a story about the stay there:  one afternoon I was taking a bit of a nap when I heard an older man say through the door, "have you just used the loo?"  I went to the door and said "no, I haven't."  Soon after I hear this man and another man talking somewhat animatedly in the hall.  Turns out that the man was really asking, "have you just used the lift?"  He lives on the top floor and had had to walk up four flights of stairs to discover that someone on our floor had left the lift unclosed.  The young man he was talking to was the culprit.  Just a bit of "flat humor."  Regards, Donna M Oct 03

Dear Nick,

 Well we are back in South Africa and this is just a short note to thank you and Michael da Sancha for having made our holiday in London such a wonderful success.
I have to admit I was very nervous about the accommodation as it was done online, but I was pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely apartment. (Notting Hill)  It was close to everything and unlike here where we live the bus service was great.  Your directions were on the mark and it made it very easy to find.
We had a lovely time in London and as the weather was so great it made it perfect.  We were all expecting the weather to have changed when we arrived but it stayed magnificent the entire month we were in Britian, even Scotland although not as hot as England.
Once again thank you and I will definitely recommend your company to anyone here in South Africa who is looking for accommodation in London. My mother, brother & sister-in-law have asked that I extend their thanks as well.
 Yours sincerely,
Heather M.  Aug 03

Dear Nick,
Just a belated thank you for thr nice holiday we were able to spend using your apartment. Warren was helpful on ther few occasions we had to revert to him for help.  You can rest asured that if we come to London again in the not too distant future we will avail ourselves of your facilities. In addition, if we know of anybody here who could be interested in this type of holiday we will not hesitate in recommending them to contact you. Sorry we did not get the chance to meet you personally, but hopefull;y the next time.
Yours sincerely, Malcolm K. Jul 03

Dear Sally,
It's been a bit hectic since we got back (not to mention me having to cope with reaching my half centaury!) but I just wanted to let you how much we had enjoyed our stay at Highbury Fields. The flat was wonderful - I hope we'll get a chance to spend some time there again soon. Many thanks, Rosemary M. July 2003

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at the Covent Garden flat.  It was very nice.  The flat was clean, comfortable, and it had everything we needed, we felt safe there, and we just generally felt at home.  It was also fun getting to explore a new neighborhood this trip.  I knew lodging would not be an issue & would be one less thing to worry about -- by using your service.  Thanks again.  I'll definitely be in touch the next time I plan a trip to London. - Carey P. Jun 03

I just wanted to let you know that we found The Covent garden flat to be a very pretty and comfortable spot.  We had a really wonderful time in London.
Thanks for your help in organizing the rental.   Regards, Nancy & Don R. may 2003

Dear Nick:

 We have returned to the US and recovered from the all the time changes.  Not only did we get to experience the moving forward of the clocks in the UK when we were there, we arrived back home in time to participate in the annual ritual here as well. 
We had a wonderful time on our vacation to London.  The flat in Bermondsey is really very nice, and provides a beautiful view of the Tower Bridge.  Our family was most comfortable there...with the exception of having to walk up and down the 6 flights of stairs.  The lift was out....taking the luggage down was quite a feat!  The neighborhood is quiet, pleasant, and safe.  We will be contacting you again in the near future to rent the flat again.  It is a perfect base for launching busy vacation days in London. 
Thank you to Warren as well for all his assistance.  You both were considerate, and always answered my never ending questions with useful information. 
Should you desire to use us for a reference, please feel free. 
Dr. and Mrs. Michael P. H. April 2003

Dear Warren:
I expect this message will get to you through your father, but I just wanted to let you know how pleased we ewere with the way everything went with our rentals last week. Our colleagues were pleased with their flat and Barbara and I continue our attachment for the top floor, in spite of the last part of the climb. As for useful information, we found the Heathrow Express train to be a marvelous way to get back and forth, and well worth the cost. In fact, on the trip out we were able to check our bags and get our boarding passes at Paddington, thus avoiding the delays and long lines at Heathrow. I think you should recommend it to your customers.
Thanks again for everything. Until the next time. Donald S. mar 2003

Dear Nick and Warren:

 Thank you so much for your hospitality and use of the Balcombe St. apartment.  It is a great location and all of us enjoyed our stay.  We look forward to staying with you again.  Sincerely,   Chris and Susan C. Nov 2002

Nick, Angela,
Thank you for a very pleasant stay at 48a. In case you want to use me as a reference I would have no hesitation recommending this immaculately-kept studio to anyone wanting a comfortable and convenient place in Highbury.
- Max B Nov 2002

Warren,   We thoroughly enjoyed the Bermondsey apartment. Incredible area, and we actually got to be recognized by the staff at the Underground station, and the local shops. Thanks for all your assistance. I will recommend your company to any other Canadians traveling to London, and rest assured that for my next trip to the UK, I will contact you first for a place to stay! Best wishes, Trudy B. July/Aug 2002

Dear Mr. Price,   I would like to thank you & your organisation for providing us with such a convenient accomodation during our stay in London. Apartment No. 18 at Bray House is very well equipped, comfortable, nicely looked after, oustandingly located (either for strolls in Green Park of to get the tube in Picadilly Circus), and in a safe area. Needless is to say that it has been a key element to an unforgettable vacation in London. Please transmit our thanks also to your father, to Ms. May and to Robbie, the cleaning lady. It has also been a pleasure dealing with you. Yours sinceresly,  Mauro V M St James Aug 2002

Mr Price - Here are the flat keys and the balance of the phone bill. We had a lovely time, the flat is perfect for a family. Charles and Elizabeth D Oct 2001 (31 Ground floor)

Regent Square:- I just wanted to tell you how much my daughter, Sandra K, my grandson, Drew K and I enjoyed our recent stay in your flat.  We have stayed in a number of self-catering places in the U. K. and your flat was by far the best, I am afraid that you have set the bar so high that we may never find its equal! Jack R. N. April 2001

Hi Nick - just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful stay at the flat in London. The flat was spacious, clean and very comfortable. An added bonus was that it was very well situated, being close to stores and the Underground. I honestly think a flat is the only way to travel when you have 2 young adults, 1 teenage boy, and 1 middle-aged woman (me) struggling to keep up with them! It was really nice to come "home" after a busy day to a place where we could all find our own personal corners and not get in each other's hair! Doing that in a hotel would have been difficult at best. Hope we left the place in good condition for you. Give my regards to Patrick for his excellent transportation. Thanks again for the lovely flat. Hope to be back soon. Alice W Mar 2001

Nick- I am sorry that it has taken me so long to send you this e-mail but returning from vacation is always very hectic. My entire family thoroughly enjoyed staying at your apartments last February. They were spacious, comfortable and so convenient. Warren greeted us warmly and was always available if we had questions. Staying with you made our vacation a wonderful experience. My mother had a great 75th birthday and we had the space and ambience to enjoy each other. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Sincerely, Marcie A. Feb 2001

Dear Nick, The accommodation was wonderful as usual, the students, Janice and I had a wonderful time during our stay. Thanks again, Leo & Janice F Dec 2000

Dear Nick - 
The flat was terrific! Great location and perfect for the four of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in London [despite the surprisingly cold weather! We are fairly used to that!] Hope you found everyting in good order. We would have swept up a bit but there was no broom. Thanks for everything! I hope we can rent from you again sometime! Jeanne P Dec 2000

We returned to the USA yesterday (Friday) after a very nice time in Florence and Rome. This brief note is to thank you and Freddie for a wonderful stay in London. We had a terrific time.  The apartment was very nice, Freddie a big help and the location is excellent. If you ever need a recommendation, please feel free to use us. We hope to return in 2001. Thanks again. JohnS Oct 2000

Dear Nick - Now that I'm back in Mobile and my Cinderella's coach has turned back into a pumpkin (I always feel this way when a trip is over), I wanted to write to thank you for making my visit to London so enjoyable. It was grand to be met and returned to the airport, and the apartment was very comfortable. I've always stayed in Pimlico, and this location was so much more convenient to so many underground lines - which we used extensively! Your web page was very honest - my flat was simple, comfortable, and most of all, CLEAN. And Balcombe Street is so quiet. Carol B. Oct 2000

Dear Nick:
My wife and I recently rented John Odea's Dewsbury Ct. flat for three plus weeks and found it to be all it was advertised. The flat was clean and very well located. We feel that we received very good value for our money and would have no hesitantly to rent the flat again should the opportunity arise. Thanks for including it on your very good web site.
Harold H. Jan 2000

Dear Nick, very many thanks for your so kind support, what you gave us in time of our visit to London! We are very happy from London, from X-mas celebration, from staying in your flat! Wish you and your family very happy New Year,
look for our next visits, Vladimir and Valentina K Jan 2000

Nick, Thanks so much for the use of your apartment! My stay in this wonderful city was great. This location to store my things was so convenient to everything I wanted to see and do! I know Iíll be back to visit-you can expect a call from me! Mechiel L, Jan 99

Dear Mr. Price:
This is just a short note to say thank you for our accommodation at King Edward Mansions. The location of the flat was perfect and the flat itself was just right for our family. Also please thank Michael de Sancha for the ride from Gatwick to the flat. We enjoyed visiting with him. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to London for Christmas and hope to return soon. Again, thanks.
Sincerely, Charles B. Dec98

We thoroughly enjoyed "our" London flat. Itís cozy, comfortable, clean Quiet and perfectly located to get us where we want to go. Thanks for making our holiday so much more enjoyable than it would have been cramped into a 2 very expensive hotel rooms! Iíll be back soon! Thanks again, Carol H, May 98

Dear Nick,
Thanks for all that you did to help make our trip to London very enjoyable. We found the apartment very pleasant and wonderfully convenient. Our only real problem was that the stay was too short. We will certainly look forward to our next trip to London and to our next stay in the Price Apartments. Cordially, Phil H, March 98

Hi Nick,
Just a quick note to say thanks for the work you did in arranging our Dalmeny Court apartment and ride from the airport.
We had a perfect holiday and really enjoyed the great location and comfortable accommodations. When it's time to return to London, I won't do so without contacting Price Apartments first!
Thanks again. Sincerely,-Steven B, March 98

Dear Nick,
We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit to London. It was our first time there, but it surely won't be the last.
Your flat was just lovely, and you made us feel like at home. We told all our friends, and you should hear about some of them in the future.
Best regards, Gabriel K & Family Jan 98

Hi Nick,
We loved the flat. It was perfect for our needs. It was clean and spacious and the neighborhood was very nice. It was convenient to everything. Our friends from Bristol were very impressed with the Spode china. Tea tastes better in a Spode pot.
Ann L Feb 98

Nick!!!! Happy 1998. I am just now getting a chance to write and say how delighted we were with the flat. It was perfect. In fact, if I had gone ahead to London to scout the territory, I couldn't have discovered anything any better. We will definitely refer anyone to you for an extended stay or to Valerie for a shorter visit. And speaking of Valerie, please relay our thanks to her. Let her know that we had our anniversary dinner at The English Garden and enjoyed it very much. Once again, thank you so much. Please, feel free to use us for a reference. Regards, Carol and Don R December 97

Hello there Nick!
We just wanted to tell you how much fun we had in London in December and how we enjoyed staying at your apartment on Balcombe Street!
You were such a nice and courteous host. It was so thoughtful of you to have given us a Christmas card as well. London and your Balcombe Street apartment will always have a special place in our travel memories.
Take care! Sincerely, Douglas and Deborah A, Dec 97

Dear Nick Price,
We moved in and decided to be Londoners for a month (w/o worrying about making a living. Your place in its delightful, safe, quiet neighborhood was all we hoped for and more. The proximity to transportation, pubs and food makes your place ideal for Americans looking for a bit of England.
Thank you , Jim J Dec 97

Thanks for everything. The flat was great Ė very comfortable and nice and centrally located. Sincerely, Marguerite C Sep 97

Dear Mr. Price,
Your flat has been most comfortable. It's clean, convenient & has made our visit far more than it would have been had we rented a hotel room. We've taken a brochure as we fully intend to recommend your flats to our travelling friends. We thank you again. Most sincerely
Carl & Roberta B June 96

We've really enjoyed our stay, the flat is perfect.
Dale & Lisa W May 96

Mr. Price,
I enjoyed very much staying in your flat - truly began to feel like home!
Craig H April 96

Dear Mr. Price,
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The flat met and in many cases exceeded our expectations. I will be sure to recommend it to anyone I know, travelling to London.
Sincerely, Donnie E April 96

Thanks again Nick, we enjoyed staying here.
Sue & David L April 96

Nicholas, Thanks much for the apartment -- It worked out just fine! I'll surely pass on to friends your name and number! Gary W June 95

Thanks - It was great!
The P's May 95

Thank you! It has been really pleasant here, and you've made it cosy and comfortable. We look forward to staying here again soon.
Sid and Bob W, Apr 95, Ferndale, Wa.

Dear Nick,
-----We will probably become annual visitors to the UK & would hope we could return to the Price flats for those visits. We have mentioned your flats to a number of friends & believe one or two have already stayed there.
