Spend your well-earned vacation in a smart, spacious, bright and newly refurbished studio apartment housed within the traditional London Town house, just moments away from the most famous market in the world! Its modern styling with a retro twist echoes the wonderful sights and sounds of the fabulous & funky Portobello market, which resides no more than 10 minutes away!

Complete with traditional Georgian sash windows, washer/dryer, shower room and an extra fold-down double bed, it can sleep up to four easily.

On your arrival, the second main bed will be pulled down and set up ready for sleeping, but you are very welcome to push it back up and remake it into the sofa! Being on the 3rd floor offers a wonderful view of London life, although having no lift will certainly keep you fit!

Perfectly positioned, Kensington Palace & Gardens is a short walk away, (the other side of which is the one and only Harrods); the nearest tube station is only 7 minutes walk away and the fabulous tea rooms, cafés and restaurants of Westbourne Grove are only one street away!

Check out is at 10am, and check in time runs from 12 noon; Fortunately, the key collection can be accessed at anytime during the day or night, so late travellers need not worry!

I can potentially be flexible about the 10am check out time, provided the apartment has no other guests checking in on the day you leave, just drop me a line to discuss. In which case, should any potential guests wishing to book have their travel itinerary handy at the time of enquiry, I'd be most grateful!

If I might also kindly stress to any potential guest that once you and i have arranged your booking, it is really quite essential that you let me know at least an approximate time by which you expect to arrive. It's also really very important that if you are running late, you do keep me informed; So please do ensure that you travel with a mobile phone from which you can call, text or e-mail me!

****Please also note guys, although wifi is indeed available, however it is not free of charge.****

Any questions, please do ask, I'm always very happy to do my best to accommodate!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sophie's apartment was very nicely decorated and clean. My friends and I enjoyed our stay in London. The location was very good, really close to tube station and all the shops. The neighborhood was nice and we felt safe walking back late at night. Sophie was helpful and flexible regarding our last minute change. I would definitely recommend Sophie's place for anyone looking for a place to stay in London!

  • Lovely flat, terrific neighborhood. Sophia was very accommodating.

    March 2014
  • Sophia's apartment was perfect! We loved our stay in Notting Hill...we really didn't want to leave! The flat felt like our home away from home for the two nights we were there. It was clean and pretty, and within walking distance of some great areas of London. I would highly recommend staying at Sophia's place, and would definitely use the apartment again! Thank you Sophia!

  • A cozy place with to double beds in one room located in a very nice part of London! We stayed here for three nights in february at a low cost, but if you have to pay full prize, make sure, that the bedlights/reading lamps are working, and that the oven can be switched on. Neither of these things were working while we were there.

    February 2014
  • We had a great stay at Sophie's place. The apartment is beautifully decorated, a decent size and in a great location. Notting Hill is a great area, with a ton of great bars/restaurants.

    The apartment is up quite alot of stairs, but if like us that's not a problem for you, then i heartily recommend Sophie's place.

    February 2014
  • We had a lovely stay at Sophie's place. There are quite a few stairs to get into the apartment, but it wasn't a problem for us as we are New yorkers and used to walk ups. The apartment is in a great location and was perfect for our needs.

    February 2014
  • Nice, comfortable and fully equipped flat. Good and quiet location, shops and restaurants just a few minutes walk. Excellent connection (busses, tube) to other parts of London. Friendly and helpful host.

    January 2014
  • Clean and specious. We had a very good time. Location was not ideal but was good enough.

    January 2014
  • The studio was perfect for our trip and Sophie made us feel at home. Perfect stay for two good friends or a couple. I can honestly recommand it. It´s quiet although pubs, cafès, etc. are around. Well locatedt... thanks a lot !

    January 2014
  • Good location, quite close to Westbourne Grove and for that reason it is good value. It is not very clean, just a look in a corner or behind a bed and there's about an inch of dirt/dust and other peoples products are left in the bathroom. The apartment is also completely choc-a-bloc with the owner possessions, there is not a cupboard/shelf/surface that is clear enough to put anything on.

    However it has a nice feeling and the owner was very helpful. It's at the top of the building and would be very hot in summer, but an inexpensive place to stay if you know you won't be in the apartment much. I wouldn't stay there again, only because I'd prefer to pay more and have a cleaner place and some space to hang clothes.

I'm a 33 year old market trader, spending my weekends at the famous Portobello Market sourcing and selling vintage clothing, homeware and interiors. I've always loved antiques and vintage finds and so, am very lucky to do what I love, in a place that I love. London is my real home and a place that I can't see myself leaving, I thrive on everything that it has to offer! I also massively enjoy being a homemaker; creating the perfect atmosphere in the place where one is to stay is very important to me, and my aim above all is to give family and guests a " home from home" experience, where they feel welcome and at ease.
