Positive: Property was really close to Westfield in Shepherds Bush, and across the street from the Tube. Overall very convenient location. Grocery store was close too!
Opportunities: It would be useful to know that the apartment is in a residential apartment complex. (The complex itself was very old in comparison to the new buildings being built in White City.) It was very confusing to locate it, and residents had to help us find it. It would have been helpful to get the email with the property details (ie, gate code) the day before.
Also, there’s no AC. Typically for London, you don’t need it, but there was an actual heat wave in the mid 90s. So that was painful at night. I think the heater was on the entire time too without us turning it on.
Lastly, the stairs. There were stairs up the stoop to get to the door. Then steep stairs up to the living room/kitchen. Then more steep stairs up to the bedroom/bathroom. My Achilles problem definitely made it burdensome to get into a comfortable situation in the house.
