About this listing
Ideal base for exploring London and the markets, shops and restaurants of the city's coolest neighbourhood
Welcome to your new home from home in Notting Hill!
There is one large living room with big sash windows, a comfy sofa, gas fire and flatscreen TV; one large and one smaller double bedroom; a pretty bathroom with bath and shower and a good-sized kitchen with gas hob, oven, fridge and washer dryer. The flat also has fold out dining tables in the living room and kitchen.
You'll find the flat clean and ready to go with fresh sheets on the beds and fresh towels. The flat comes with all services including WiFi (landline telephone not provided). It is fully furnished with all you'll need for your stay from linen, to a fully-equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room with flatscreen TV and Freeview channels.
We are a creative couple who have spent time designing and decorating the apartment to a high standard. The apartment has gorgeous large windows on all sides which flood the rooms with light and is located on the top floor of a period-conversion property which is shared with eight other flats. The building is quiet and well-kept. There is also the use of a shared terrace for sunny days.
We especially enjoy hosting families with children, although all groups are of course welcome. We have a travel cot available for those with young children.
Please be aware there a three flights of stairs from the street to the flat door so you you need to be able to climb stairs easily.
The street is extremely quiet with minimal traffic and no buses while also being within very short walking distance to the heart of the local market, shopping and dining areas. We have lived in the area for ten years and can also provide you with a guide to the best restaurants, shops and bars in the area and in London.
Our home has a lovely peaceful atmosphere and has always felt like a sanctuary to us in the heart of the city. We hope you'll enjoy it and even that you might come back and stay regularly with us - making this your very own Notting Hill Pad.
Guests can enjoy the whole apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Our guests are greeted on arrival by our property manager Cristina, who will also be available to help with anything during their stay. On check out Cristina will meet the guests to ensure everything is in order.
Located on a quiet street just two minutes from vibrant Portobello Road and close to both Ladbroke Grove and Holland Park tube stations this is the ideal place to spend some time in one of London's most exclusive areas.
With central London just ten minutes away by tube you can also dip into the best the capital has to offer. The nearest stations are Ladbroke Grove and Holland Park. There are several bus stops within a few minutes walk from the apartment. City bikes are also available for rental right outside our front door.
Other Things to Note
There is a cleaning and laundry fee of £60 (approx $100 or €70) added to the overall bill to cover the cleaning and laundry fee irrespective of the number of days booked.
We would ask our guests to treat our home with respect and care and leave it as they found it.
Absolutely no high heels on inside the house please - we have wooden floors which would be ruined.
No smoking please - guests can smoke on the roof terrace and discard any cigarette butts in the container provided.
No pets please.
We ask our guests to be polite and respectful to the residents in our building - absolutely no loud parties allowed and keeping noise to a considerate level throughout their stay.
Other than that please make yourselves at home.
The home was wonderful with plenty of room for my wife, myself, and our 24 year old daughter. The location was great with Portobello Street close by. Lots of nearby restaurants and two tube stations made it convenient. The neighborhood was quiet and seemed safe even late at night. WiFi was inconsistent, but overall we would highly recommend staying here!
We had a wonderful stay in Notting Hill. The flat is clean and cozy and looks just like in the pictures. We especially liked the living room, a place where you can relax after a busy day walking around London. I can highly recommend to stay there!
We felt very welcome. When we first arrived a lovely person called Cristina greeted us and because of her kindness, we felt instantly at home.The flat was clean,it had lovely light and every "mod con" we could hope for. The location is great. I highly recommend it.
Christina, who helps out managing the flat was great at making us feel completely at home. She showed us how everything worked and was always available on the phone if anything should have been a problem.
This was our first Airbnb experience...hope they're all as perfect. The flat was perfect as described: great location, beautifully decorated with everything we needed. We had a great time exploring London and then coming home to this restful place in a great neighborhood. Communication with Simone was great. Cristina was very helpful and very friendly. We highly recommend you stay here! Thanks for a great experience!
Perfect location! only a few blocks from the tube and lots of great restaurants. Make sure you try out the Turkish Restaurant on Ladbroke Grove, fantastic! Flat was great, beds were comfortable, everything was clean. We were there for a week and really appreciated the washer/dryer as we packed very light. There is no air conditioning but all the windows opened and there were fantastic breezes. The property manager Christina checked in on us a few times to make sure everything was going well. We had a great stay:)

About the Host, Simone
I'm a 35-year old designer who lived in Notting Hill for ten years and who grew up just outside London. I've worked all my life between the worlds of travel and design and my home is full of objects and books from my travels. It has been a great sanctuary for me and continues to be although I now divide my time between Andalusia and my place in Notting Hill.
