The flat is also in the perfect location for you to begin exploring London. Notting Hill neighbourhood is a delight to walk around. Close to Portobello Road, where you can visit the famous vintage/antique market. The area is also packed with chic eclectic cafes and restaurants. The apartment is just a short walk form Notting Hill Tube Station (Central Line & Circle/District lines) and Westbourne Park Road Tube Station (Hammersmith & City lines).
The area is well served by tubes buses and taxi - all within minutes.

Tranquil Holland Park & Hyde Park around the corner - have morning walk or jog and breakfast in outdoor cafes.

The Heathrow Express train, 15 minutes to Heathrow Airport departs from Paddington Station - a 5 minute taxi journey from flat or 15 minutes by bus.
Coming from Gatwick, you can either take the Gatwick Express train (45min) or the National Express coach (1hr 35min) to Victoria station. The coach is cheaper than then train but comfortable - I suggest you check both out online and book in advance as cheaper. A taxi from Victoria station to the flat will take 15-20 mins.

My experience in Sally's house was amazing! The house was clean, resourceful and so convenient location wise for first time visitors.
Sally was available right away if/when we reached out and had a solution or answer for everything.
It was a pleasure to have stayed there and definitely recommend to other visitors.
My wife and I stayed at Sally's flat for 4 days and it was fantastic! It was exactly as described, clean and in a great location to visit Portobello St. and close to the Tube. Communication from Sally was excellent with check-in/ out a breeze. We would definitely stay here again!
Sally's place was absolutely perfect. It was just as pictured, and spotless. The area is quintessential London, with great restaurants and pubs near by. This is the place to be in London if you don't like the summer chaos. We can't wait to visit Sally's apartment again next time we are in London. Sally was extremely quick with her responses whenever we messaged her. Thank you for having us.
My fiancee and I enjoyed our time in Sally's flat. Her space was open and welcoming and the patio space is ideal for unwinding with a nice glass of wine. She is ideally located in Notting Hill, and we found it easy to get around London via tube or taxi from her flat.
I also appreciated that Sally makes "room" for her guests. She made space for our clothes in the closet, and space for our toiletries in the bathroom. This may seem like a small thing, but this makes me feel more like a guest, and less like an intruder.
I highly recommend her home!
My husband and I stayed in Sally's home for 18 days in April and mid May 2015.This was our first experience with airbnb. We had a very good experience there. Sally has been the perfect host. We had close communication with her from the very beginning till the end of our stay. She was reachable all the time; she explained to us how to get to Notting Hill from the airport and always made us feel at home.
The flat was as lofty, charming and cozy as it had been advertised on airbnb. It was well lit and had all the amenities and kitchen utensils to make you feel comfy as if it were your home. Amazing!!!
I don’t have words to describe the cool, quiet and special neighbourhood the flat was located. Notting Hill: a gorgeous place!! It was within reach of many tube, train stations and bus stops.
We had a grate time,
The vibe in the flat is very relaxing, in a very beautiful street.
sally was answering every question we had any time a day.
ill be happy to go back there again.
L'appartement de Sally est vraiment très agréable, bien décoré et conforme a la description faite sur le site
Tout est conçu pour rendre notre séjour incroyable et l'environnement est calme et charmant
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir chez Sally lors d'une prochaine visite à Londres
About the Host, Sally
Originally Irish, I have lived in London many years - I love London. It's a fantastic city...vibrant or tranquil depending on your mood. I have worked in the fashion business but have now retained as a psychotherapist; I enjoy both. I can't live without my friends, my dog Buckley, Hyde Park, work and play. I used to travel a lot and love Bali, Ibiza, LA, Stockholm and Tokyo. This year I'll be working in Belgium, where I've never been and always wanted to go. Notting Hill is wonderful, it has a lovely village atmosphere. My flat feels good; it's a little haven, bright and comfortable - easy to settle into. I hope you will enjoy the experience - I know I'm biased, but I think you will. I would like you to feel very welcome and hope you enjoy all that London has to offer.
