The Space

This charming 1 bedroom with en-suite bathroom apartment is set within a whole self-contained house in the heart of trendy Notting Hill Gate.

With its own terrace, perfect for spring/summer breakfasts or dinner with friends - this charming but casual apartment is split across 3 levels with a separate kitchen. Let furnished. All mod cons with excellent wifi access. The Notting Hill Gate tube station is within 1 minute walk.

There are provisions in the kitchen for guests to enjoy if they arrive hungry after their trip: fresh milk, chocolates or cookies and some breakfast options. Guests are welcome to use all in the flat - home away from home.

Ideas for attractions in London can be provided at request. The host can be contacted any time for help if necessary.

The flat has had a variety of wonderful visitors, most have come from overseas for work or leisure. All guests have clean bedding, towels and bathroom stocked with necessary bits. Guests have frequently commented on the delightful location of the apartment especially the excellent travel links to any destination in this wonderful city.

The closeness to famous Portobello Road automatically results in a large variety of restaurants, bars, shops and the market to suit all tastes.

Apartment is modern but has those typically bohemian Notting Hill traces underlining the age of the house (built circa 150 years ago) and has a relaxed nature about it, like most of Notting Hill, it is quirky but comfortable - please note that the apartment is not a hotel room but a home. The apartment benefits from its own entrance from the famous and bustling street. The walls of the apartment are decorated with owner's art collection.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

  • We went to London to see Monty Python live, and stayed at the apartment for five great days. As promised, the location is terrific, a minute from Notting Hill Gate tube station, and close to many pubs and restaurants. The neighborhood can be a bit crowded with tourists over the weekend but once you get inside and sit on the terrace, you feel like a local watching the crowds go by.

    Chil was a great host, and left cookies and wine for us. The kitchen is well equipped and the entire apartment is charming. The only con we can think of is that the living room can be a bit noisy, as double decker buses pass by. But despite this, we highly recommend the place.

  • This June we have stayed for a second time already at this apartment. It is every bit as adorable and comfortable as you see in the pictures. Vestalia is friendly, kind, responsive and hospitable, she made sure we had what we needed. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
    Thank you very much, Vestalia. Hope to stay with you again soon.

  • Chil was the best! great communication leading up to and during our stay, she responds so quickly and that is much appreciated when travelling! the apartment and location is the best, you have Notting Hill and Portobello Road literally on your doorstep, also the tube, Tesco and off licences are all close by. Lots of great pubs/bars/restaurants around - so many in fact we didn’t get to enjoy the lovely bottle of wine that Chil left for us on our arrival! The Terrace is awesome as well! Next time we travel to London we would love to stay here again.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed Chil's kind hospitality in Notting Hill. We did not want for anything, including regular updates and responses from our host. Just a skip from the Notting Hill tube, this charming flat is a perfect spot for exploring the area or other parts of London, or just relaxing in the midst of a dynamic neighborhood.

  • Joli appartement dans Notting Hill. Idéalement placé a deux pas de la station Notting Hill gate. L'appartement est fonctionnel et lumineux. Un peu arty et doté d'une belle terrasse. La chambre est calme et le quartier aussi. Le salon donnant sur une rue passante c'est un plus bruyant. Notre hôte a été très réactive. L'appartement était propre et bien équipé. Il manquait peut être une télé pour se reposer le soir des longues marches quotidiennes.

  • Chil's trendy/cosy flat is right in the heart of Notting Hill with Portobello Market just down the road and the tube a couple of minute's walk. Shops, a fabulous fish and chippery, cafes and a pub were less than 100 metres away. The flat was light, bright and very clean and having the fabulous terrace overlooking the street behind was a bonus even though the weather did not allow us to use it. A bottle of wine, pack of biscuits, milk, basics and helpful maps welcomed us and was a lovely surprise. The wi-fi worked well, the fantastic heating was great and the bed very comfy. Chil was very helpful and communication very easy. When we stepped out of the door and onto the street each day we felt like locals and just loved the whole atmosphere. We couldn't have wished for a better start to our 5 month trip to the UK and Europe.

  • Chil was very responsive. She was thoughtful by leaving things which allowed you to relax on arrival without immediately searching out markets. The Notting Hill neighborhood is great with shops, upscale markets and nice pubs and restaurants. We found the flat warm, welcoming and comfortable. During our two week stay, we spent many hours on our feet being tourists and the flat felt relaxing when we returned to it each evening. One special part of the flat is the terrace and we spent as much time as possible when were at the flat. We also enjoyed Chil's art collection including the pieces she did herself.

  • Great location in Notting Hill. The host was very friendly and communicated often to make sure we had a good stay.
