Virginia Yee, Chinese American living in Hong Kong, former banker:
"It is so economical having this set-up. There is very little capital commitment. The whole fractional concept is very appealing, very progressive. It offers the utmost flexibility. It is similar to owning a debenture in Hong Kong. It is convenient and practical, it means I can enjoy London as a home.
Residences like this make you feel absolutely secure that you can come on your own. The staff know you by name and there is only one entry point. This really is a house.
Many of my friends have second homes; one has spent 18 months redecorating hers; another always has something falling apart. ‘I should just do what you do', they say."
Adam Farkas, banker in Budapest
"My main motivation for this purchase was the flexibility. I had been thinking about buying in London, but didn't want full ownership. I didn't want to deal with the problems of letting a property and, as a banker, I know that financially, it would be a bad investment if the property is left vacant for most of the year. I also didn't like the idea of the hassle of maintenance and the like. I've stayed in lots of hotels in London and I can tell you that it's very hard to find the right kind of place when you need it. There's such a varied standard of quality and the availability of high-end hotel accommodation can be limited at times."
Peter and Pauline Hennessey, executives from Essex
"We rent out lots of property already in the UK, and we were looking for something different. With 47 Park Street we have a place in London that gives us a bit of comfort, luxury and pampering, without the hassle of home ownership. And once it comes down to it, our children will be faced with less inheritance tax.
"After years of working in London and finally moving to the country, who would have thought that we would come to central London for our time off? But it is a totally different way of life for us here now. We come to London socially and see a whole different side of London. It's wonderful."
Frederik and Natasha Ohldieck, retired couple from Norway
"The service is the best part of our stay, it is impeccable. We tend to use our kitchen for breakfast and perhaps a light supper. We book our tables for dinner and our tickets for the opera through Peter the concierge and also leave behind some of our personal effects such as toiletries for our next visit."
Richard Peck, award-winning author from New York
"For me, a hotel visit does not equate to a holiday so I try to spend as little time in them as possible. Before finding out about 47 Park Street, I used to rent flats in Chelsea but found this sometimes stressful and time consuming."
Richard loves the familiarity and discreet service that is afforded by 47 Park Street. ‘The staff are like family to me'.
Felicia Cleper Borkovi, architect based in US and UK
"47 Park Street has the feeling of a home, a cocoon in the heart of London. Seeing 47 Park Street for the first time was like love at first sight, and opting for a Membership there was certainly a decision made by the heart. The fact that I can leave personal items here, like my books, is very convenient and gives me a much-needed illusion of stability and continuity while living in London.."
Daniela de Simone, solicitor based in Milan
"I decided to opt for fractional ownership after much consideration. You can have all the benefits of home ownership without the hassle and at a fraction of the cost. It is perfect for me also because I only need the house just for a couple of weeks every year.
I'm very glad of the fact that I when I come to Park Street I don't have to worry about setting up the suite or any such preoccupations. Every single time I come to London I am treated like a queen. The fridge is full all the time from the minute I step into the suite, with all what I have previously asked.
The Butler Service is amazing, I don't have to pre-order my items as they already do it for me. On my arrival I also can find the pictures of my sons in their frames on the wall. The room is always clean and tidy.
I really can't be more pleased about this purchase, it is simply amazing. I'm very happy with the security, concierge and room service. The staff are highly professional all the time. If there is anything at all I need I have just to ask."
