Cynthia says... Beautiful duplex on a lovely quiet street in London's fashionable Notting Hill! Notting Hill is an area in West London, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The area is most well-known for Portobello Market (on Portobello Road, unsurprisingly), which runs every day except Sundays, and the Notting Hill Carnival, held every year on the last weekend in August. Two of my favourite smaller London museums are both within walking distance of Notting Hill. Leighton House and Linley Sambourne House are excellent examples of everyday life in the 1890's in London. Any fan of the Victorian Aesthetics Movement in art/books/lifestyle should make one of these museums a must visit!!! Of course, we couldn't talk about Notting Hill without mentioning the film and the BLUE DOOR Released in 1999 and starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, the film did much to promote and raise interest in the area.It was the reason so many shops relocated here and why other long standing ones had to close as the area became more expensive.It really has changed so much in the last 20 years.The area has so many shops and it's a foodie heaven with delis,coffee shops,tea rooms galore! About the Flat: The flat offers our guests plenty of space. The fact that it's split level allows a spacious environment to relax in.The kitchen is fully stocked with all the bits and pieces you'll need to ensure that cooking here will be a delight! Please take the shopping trolley out and stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables for your stay. The market is the place to head for this. There are also some excellent deli's within a few minutes walk. The closest large supermarket is 5 minutes away. After a day out shopping one can simply enjoy the garden and a glass of wine and unwind. The flat also has a power shower within a roomy bathroom. Notting Hill is a great place to visit, from its cafes and restaurants, its market and boutique shops, to its many pubs and bars. It holds much in the way of entertainment, whatever your interest - be it shopping, dining, film, drinking, clubbing or more! Things to do: Notting Hill still has three excellent independent cinemas and I would suggest visiting at least one of them on your visit. The Electric Cinema is closet to the flat and is a must see for any film lover. If you're a lover of music than a visit to the original Rough Trade shop on nearby Talbot Road is a must see! You'll find a vast array of recorded music and their walls of plastered with posters/handbills from the past 50 years of music in London.If Jazz is more up your street than a trip to Honest Jon's on Portobello Road. Books Books Books...yes this area still has some independent shops left. I mentioned that the Travel Bookshop is up for sale..but still trading(This is due to close Sept/2011)(now closed Dec 11). There's the excellent Books For Cooks on Blenheim Cres. Yes, it's all about food here and they also have special cookery evenings and plenty of authors signing their latest cookbook. One can really walk to several places of interest. I walked the entire way into the West End last week...passing several wonderful attractions. The walk did take about one hour and 10 minutes but on a lovely day it made us realise why we love London so much! You can walk via Hyde Park and pass the Royal Albert Hall and the Albert Memorial...and head up to Wellington Arch and straight down Piccadilly into Soho/Covent Garden.One needs to remember to wear comfortable shoes though! If you're booking during the summer season than an open air concert should be on the list of things to do. The flat is very close to Holland Park where one can listen and see Opera in the Park. This park is a pure delight...not as big as the other Royal Parks but it has a lovely Japanese Garden...not to mention the Peacocks and other wildlife. PLEASE NOTE-WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR CALENDAR UP TO DATE.WE ALSO HAVE OTHER FLATS THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

    I highly recommend this Notting Hill apartment. My family of 5 (3 kids ages 10, 13, 15) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The three bedrooms gave us the space we needed to spread out. We did not cook, but the kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed for our take-away dinners, tea/coffee, cold drinks, etc. The dishwasher and washer/dryer were a plus. There is only one bathroom, but it is quite spacious with ample counter space and the shower is excellent. The location suited us perfectly. With Portobello Rd. only a block away, we were walking distance to cafes, grocery stores, shops, bus stops and the Underground station. We could easily get to all the London sites, but felt like we had a quiet retreat to return to at the end of the day. We were only there for 4 nights, but I could have made myself at home and stayed much longer. 09 July 2016 - 23:17:00

    It provided the perfect spot from which to explore, close to public transport links and the vibrancy of the local area yet in a quiter residential street. Although the bedrooms provided enough space for 6 adults, we did feel the living area was a little smaller than expected with limited seating/dining for everyone. 03 January 2017 - 08:56:00

    Excellent location, spacious, comfortable 13 November 2011 - 15:28:09

    Great location, lovely ambiance to the apartment - a little warm on the second floor so I would not recommend renting in hot weaather, but excellent for any other time. Place was a tad shabby, but comfortable enough. Suggestions - changing the bottom skeleton key lock to a more user friendly one. I had a heart attack the first time leaving the flat when it took me 10 minutes to get in.........an extractor fan for the bathroom......an A/C unit would cool the whole place.......TV was not a flat screen, not a fuzzy picture but not crisp like British TV is.....I think they may have left the front entrance really unkempt with grody plants in pots so noone would break in.....back courtyard was also awful.... If you stay there make sure you try Bumpkin, one of the best "English" restaurants in London on Westbourne Park Road. Rating - overall decent value, wonderful for shortish stays but could be really charming......just needs a bit of investment and upgrading to be really wonderful..... 02 June 2012 - 22:25:54
  5. Great location - very tidy and quiet - After 10 days of travel, it was lovely to have a "home" base and not be in a Hotel or Hostel. Just a short walk to Portabello Street. Where there are great resturants and quaint shops. The owners have done a lovely job of stocking the kitchen with all the right appliances to whip up a meal - but why should you when you could walk to resturants, bakeries and coffee shops. Felt like a true Londoner for 4 days. Would recommend this to family and friends for a great UK experience! 30 September 2012 - 23:07:01

    This is a cosy, three-bedroom flat on two levels a stone's throw from Portobello Markets. It provided four of us with a comfortable holiday in London over Christmas. The flat is close to many restaurants and cafes, as well as the Notting Hill Gate Tube station. It's even walkable from the West End. There is a Tesco's in Portobello Road for comestibles too. We set up the flat with two single beds in the back upstairs bedroom and one in the front, as well as the double bedroom downstairs. 09 January 2013 - 00:56:07
  7. The apartment in Notting Hill is very clean. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood, very pleasant, very easy to access. It is close to the bus, and a 15-mn walk to the underground. We stayed there with two children, and the flat was great. We stayed there in the winter, and the place was adequately warm. I would have only two comments. First, a minor thing: the addition of a teapot in a British flat is a must! ;) Second, the second bed in the bedroom is an inflatable bed. The ad says a convertible bed, which to me sounds like an armchair that can be converted into a bed. An inflatable bed is rather uncomfortable, and hard to sleep on. Given the price of the rental, I thought that an inflatable bed was not appropriate. 24 February 2013 - 20:49:50

    Just stayed at this adorable property last week and we could not have been happier. It is just as cute as the pictures online and so well equipped, we needed nothing. The kitchen is compact but perfect for doing everything. We did not cook, but the gas stove was impressive. GREAT WiFi (which was a big deal for us because although we were "off" work, we had to check email frequently. Beds are very comfortable, shower is powerful and has plenty of hot water. I had a damn cold and was able to feel very cozy sleeping upstairs and I never touched the heat settings. They were perfect. My colleague prefers a bit cooler temp, so she stayed in the bedroom downstairs and was very happy. The location is incomparable. Steps to everything and so many super shops and restaurants. The Tube is maybe 10 minutes, Literally around the corner from Portobello Road and the market. Our greeter, Helen, was friendly and professional and patiently showed us every knob, switch, door, etc. I cannot imagine ever wanting to stay anyplace in London but this cute flat. I felt like Twiggy/Jean Shrimpton/Julie Christie living the swinging London scene in the 60's--BUT--with modern conveniences! I used 247 radio cab to get to Heathrow Sunday morning, by the way, and they were great -30 BP. Yeah, going to Paddington and taking the Express is way cheaper but I had a lot of luggage and I did not feel like ruining my "holiday" by going through that effort. Highest recommendation--from a very picky, American frequent traveler! 23 October 2013 - 14:15:56

    Who doesn't want to stay in the swanky part of London? This was the perfect location for our family during our Spring Break trip. The flat was a great set up for our family of 4 including 2 teen sons. They each chose their room. It was nice to have space to spread out and relax. Our greeter, Helen, couldn't have been more cheerful and helpful when we arrived a little late in the evening from Copenhagen. She filled us in on everything we needed to know. The location is perfect. We spent Saturday morning wandering the Portobello Road Market which is just a couple of blocks away. There's a grocery store with friendly staff just a few blocks the other direction. We felt completely safe walking there quite late our first night. The Tube Station is about a 10 minute walk but it's a walk full of fun shops, beautiful homes and great places to eat so it may take you longer! The only downside was the neighbors we shared the building with - which can't be controlled. Our first night and day were very quiet, but then they must have returned late Sunday night. Our last couple of days we had at least one time where it sounded like they were dragging furniture around their flat while performing River Dance in tap shoes. The next night they had their music on quite late at night. I suggest some earplugs for night time. I assume this is just the nature of these old row houses and the way they have been broken up in to flats. We called it our "unique London experience". It didn't ruin the stay but I it was a annoyance after a long day of sight-seeing. I think we got even when we took showers at 4:30 the morning we left. The shower pump makes a lot of noise. :-) 31 May 2014 - 23:29:19

    Our family of 5 (3 kids between the ages of 7 and 12) had a wonderful stay in this well-equipped flat. It was quiet, easy to get to everywhere: shopping, restaurants, and tube. We felt very safe walking around the neighborhood throughout the day and evening. The bathroom is huge! We had everything we needed during our 5 night stay. And being so close to Portabello Rd. made shopping for food or dinner a breeze. Our greeter was friendly and extremely helpful. We had a lovely stay! 23 June 2016 - 22:57:13

    This is a lovely home, convenient location for shopping and transit. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each, plus a downstairs bedroom with queen bed. It's so nice to have all the beds for larger families. The upper bedroom fronting the street can be a bit noisy, so put your heavy sleepers or earplug wearers in that one. Washer and dryer is great for traveling light. We cooked meals in, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Greeter Benedicte was friendly and very personable, plus great communication with the owners. Everything was clean and tidy, the towels and linens smelled great too! Plenty of travel books available in the home. 03 April 2017 - 15:40:00

    Great location and perfect for our family's needs. Benedicte was lovely and very helpful, gave us lots of info about the local area. Fantastic break! 28 July 2017 - 23:22:00
  13. Elizabeth L.
    Really good location for exploring locally but also very handy for getting right into the centre too. The kids loved it (especially the pink house down the road). Property was really spacious and well equipped and Benedicte the lady who met us was really friendly and accommodating and even posted back my little girls teddy she'd managed to drop behind the bed! Would definitely recommend for either families or not as it would work well for both due to being on a surprisingly quiet street but very close to busier ones. 04 August 2017 - 09:22:00
  14. Elsa M.
    Your flat is in a prime location, so many good eats and shopping. The close proximity to the tube and bus made excursions easy. The flat was just big enough for us (2 adults and 4 teens), it is tidy, and Benedicte was extremely helpful and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely introduction to England! 12 August 2017 - 02:08:00
  15. Ilana B.
    We stayed for 2 nights, when we came there was some one waiting for us with the house ready and clean. Its very close to the underground so very easy to go any where in london area. The house itself is very comfort, with beds for 6-7 ppl, a great solution for family with kids/ groups. Hot water all day and night, clean bathroom and toilets, wish fresh towels and all you need. There is also a kitchen with electrinics and all, though we didnt cock or used it. GREAT value for money with prime location! 15 October 2017 - 15:04:00
  16. Philippe D.
    Maisonnette cosy, bien adapte pour un couple avec enfants, fonctionnelle, bien quipe. Emplacement idal, calme mais deux pas du march de portobello, et 1/2 heure du centre de Londres par la ligne de bus 23 ou par le mtro. Seuls bmols : la pice de vie est assez sombre et le jardinet pas vraiment utilisable 01 November 2017 - 06:56:00

    Casa acogedora en un sitio muy bueno. Tranquila por la noche y a un paso de Portobello as que si quieres tomar algo o un super ests a nada. A unos diez minutos de la parada de metro ms prxima y con paradas de autobs cerca tambin. James, muy atento en todo momento y la persona que nos recibi al llegar muy simptica y nos explico todo muy bien. Respecto a la casa, yo repetira sin duda porque hemos estado cuatro personas adultas muy a gusto. Es ms pequea de lo que parece en las fotos pero como he dicho anteriormente muy acogedora, de esas casas que nada ms llegar ya te sientes a gusto. Solo le pongo un pero y es que le falta una vuelta de mantenimiento y de cario. Nada que no se pueda solucionar sustituyendo algunas bombillas que no encienden o poniendo un poco ms de orden en las habitaciones. Por lo dems nos ha encantado. 16 October 2017 - 23:01:00

    Its not fancy, but it is very functional! Had all the little things we needed which made it much better than a hotel. A great location, easy to get around, close to the grocery stores, and an easy 15 min walk to the underground. Loved having multiple bedrooms so our teens had some space. Worked great for us! 04 November 2017 - 13:30:00
  19. Glynnis R.
    Finding a 3 bedroom apartment in this part of London was really helpful for our family of 5. The location of the apartment was utterly tremendous - a minute away from excellent Gail's bakery and all the great cafes, restaurants and shops on Portobello rd, and a really easy 5 min walk to the Notting Hill Gate tube. One day we even strolled from the apartment through Hyde Park, St James park into central London - fantastic! The apartment itself is really well equipped - having a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier was really useful. That said, we felt the apartment could benefit from a really good springclean and an upgrade of some of the old and tired furniture and carpeting. Despite the run down feeling, we still had a very good week here. 30 December 2017 - 10:32:00

    This is a very spacious flat in a great neighborhood with shopping, restaurants, outdoor market and transportation hubs all very convenient. Washer and dryer as well as basics for cooking and plenty of beds for larger groups. Property manager was easily accessible and responsive when we had an issue with hot water not working. Wonderful place for families to stay to spread out and have space. 04 January 2018 - 20:07:00
