"Your three properties were the perfect base for my brother's wedding and so well-located. Everyone in my family kept commenting on the quality and comfort. It was nice to have homely accommodation while away especially during such a busy week".

"We were referred to Larkfield Apartments through the Richmond American International University website.
The rates were comparible if not better than local hotels considering the amenities and proximity to public transportation.
Arthur was very responsive and accommodating to our specific needs. We loved that the bus stop and Richmond train station were just a short walk from the apartment.
We had all the comforts of home, too: WiFi, kitchen, washer/dryer, etc.
We were offered a bigger apartment on the lower level but honestly our family of four was comfortable in the Studio Apartment.
There was more than enough space for us in this quaint and cozy space.
The pillows and mattresses were comfortable and the linen and towels were fresh and clean.
(I would recommend "fluffing" the towels in the dryer for a short time.) I was very grateful to be able to cook meals for my family everyday.
Thank you for providing the basic pots/pans and utensils.
All in all I know our family will choose to stay at Larkfield Apartments (Studio) again the next time we come to Richmond. Many thanks!! Brian and Therese".

"(5/5). The apartment is well situated on a quiet residential road just a few minutes walk to Richmond train station and the centre of Richmond and within easy walking
distance of Richmond Park and Kew Gardens. The apartment is roomy and well equipped. It is clean and Arthur has ensured that it is Covid compliant.
Arthur was very helpful and easily contactable. I would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment for a stay in Richmond".

"Amazing Flat Rental (5/5). Flat was clean, modern, and provided all we needed for our stay in Richmond. We had choice of cooking in the flat or enjoying nearby restaurants, and we did both. We utilized both bus and rail for our adventures around London. Arthur was tremendous in helping us move in".

The apartment had good facilities including Wi-Fi, a well equipped kitchen and was warm and sunny".

Walked to the Orange Tree Theatre for an excellent evening's entertainment. Only the squeaky floor boards in front of the bedrooms need fixing. Thanks again."
