I love my flat. I have lived here for ten years (in between living in New York and New Zealand) - and am constantly delighted by the area and what it has to offer.
I am a road away from Portobello Road, home of that blue-door from the film 'Notting Hill,' and I can see Ladbroke Grove tube from my window which provides a quick and easy connection to London and the rest of the world.
A stone's throw away from excellent restaurants (Turkish, Ethiopian, Japanese, Thai, Italian...) - a fishmongers has recently opened opposite who does amazing (cheap!) sashimi and the furthest supermarket is a minute's walk away.
It takes 40 minutes to walk to Oxford Street and the route takes you through Hyde Park....
At Christmas I had a friend from New York staying and he encouraged me to put my flat up here as it's his favourite place to stay when he's in London (and supply teaching doesn't pay as well as animation..!)
Please just leave the flat as you find it!
Sophie was a superb host, arranging a friend to meet us at the flat for a late arrival from the airport and organising welcome wine, chocolates, fruit, bagels, milk & juice - really thoughtful ! The location of the flat was perfect for exploring and experiencing Notting Hill. We thoroughly recommend staying here.
Sophie, même sans l'avoir vue, est un amour. Elle a pensé à nous souhaiter la bienvenue avec quelques attentions: bouteille de vin, corbeille de fruits, chocolats et un frigo prêt à nous dépanner pour un copieux petit déjeuner. Elle a aussi veillé à nous laisser un plan avec ses bonnes adresses de restos. C'était vraiment super et la localisation, à un jet de pierre du marché de Portobello Road, idéale pour découvrir Notting Hill. Coup de foudre, oui oui.
We had a great Time in this flat. It is perfectly located in west London near a subway station. The flat is very easy and Sophie helped us with a very clear communication. I will highly recommend it.
This was our second stay at Sophie's lovely apartment. Once again Sophie made us feel like family. The apartment has everything we require including a great location. We hope that this will always be our London home.
Our stay in Sophie's apt was very pleasant. She had a bottle of wine on the table upon our arrival. The apt is accurate to the photos...lots of natural light and in a great location just 2 mins from the tube and a short stroll to portobello markets. I would recommend this apt for convenience. Sophie was very flexible with our check out time also.
Sophie's apartment was just as described! We found it it very cosy and neat, just perfect for our stay in London. The location couldn't have been better with nice restaurants and shops around and the tube station just around the corner. Sophie was a very good host and made us feel welcome to her house and we got some good tips about the neighborhood.
