3.Location, Attractions & Famous Residents

Our home is in a residential area & benefits from being in the midst of popular London tourist attractions.

We list out some of those in-the-immediate-area attractions below (e.g. Portobello Market, Little Venice, Hyde Park etc)

However our personal favourite all-day “Circular Super-Tour of London” from home, is to walk or cycle from the apartment through Hyde Park, to Wellington Arch, into Green Park, to (see the Queen & the changing of the guards at) Buckingham Palace, down the Mall along St. James’ Park, to Trafalgar Square (and maybe popping by Piccadilly Circus to say hi to Anteros), looking up at the Horse Guards, strolling by the Prime Minister’s pad at No. 10 Downing Street, to the church of all the coronations of England’s kings and queens – Westminster Abbey – to the Houses of Parliament next door, and then across the mighty Thames into the London Aquarium and up on the wheel of The London Eye, and then continuing all along the south bank of the Thames from the Royal Festival Hall to Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Borough Market, and then crossing the Millenium Bridge into the square mile of the financial City of London, to attend the marvel of an evensong under the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral… before catching a tube directly back home to Notting Hill (possibly via dinner and theatre / musical in the West End) for a well deserved long soak in the heavenly bath tub… :-)

And here are some of the attractions in the immediate vicinity:

•Catching the quirky vibe of the famous Portobello Market (10 min walk away),

•At the corner of our road, enjoying a pint or two and great food in two of ‘London’s Pub of the Year,’ Conran’s - The Cow and The Westbourne, and in a plethora of hip & trendy and other diverse pubs, restaurants & nightclubs in Notting Hill, Bayswater & Queensway, etc (5-15 mins walk)

•Immersing yourself (10 min walk) into the enchanting canal world of Little Venice

•From where you can take quaint water-buses or kayaks to the scintillating market & attractions of Camden Lock, Regent’s Park, London Zoo (20 min)

•Running, roller-blading, cycling, boating or horse-riding in Hyde Park, Central London’s largest green space hosting the late Princess Diana’s home at Kensington Palace, the Kensington Gardens, the waterways of the Serpentine, Speakers’ Corner, various outdoor art installations / sculptures & the Serpentine Gallery (20 min walk or 10 min bus / cycle ride away), as well as visiting the nearby Royal Albert Hall for the music enthusiasts, shopping attractions of High Street Kensington, the V&A, Natural History and Science museums (20-25 min bus ride away)

Beware too! You might just run into famous celebrity residents such as supermodels Claudia Schiffer & Elle Macpherson, singers Robbie Williams & Madonna, or walk to the book-shop where Hugh Grant meets Julia Roberts in the movie Notting Hill!!

  • We had a great stay at Darshita's place. Everything was professional, clean and had a nice vibe to it.

    October 2013
  • This apt is in a great location. Its a very charming place, that was exactly as advertised. The owners were very accommodating and easily accessible.

    October 2013
  • We found the Nothing Hill apartment to be comfortable and well appointed. The location was excellent. We had easy walking access to the tube stations as well as Portolbello Rd and WestBourne Grove. So many excellent shops and restaurants to chose from. We also enjoyed eating some meals in the apartment. Do realize that this is a basement apartment ans as such you should expect noise from above. There was quite a bit of foot noise, but we were out sightseeing most hours of the day.

  • This home is a magical place. You get the hustle and bustle of London life with the peaceful, sanctuary feel of this home. It's so beautiful and spacious. All the modern amenities you'd want with an amazing location with great access to the buses and a 5 minute walk to two tube stations. My husband, baby and I stayed here for a little under two weeks and were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail from Darshi and her accessibility if we had any issues or questions. She even found a baby high chair for our son! The living room is simple with beautiful artwork, yet perfectly fit for a child. The bathroom is phenomenal and we all took many relaxing baths in the large, inviting tub. The kitchen has everything you need and we slept comfortably in the bedrooms. The garden is out of a story book and hold your horses! There is a meditation room just off the garden, along with a second bathroom. Some mornings my son and I would sit in the meditation room after breakfast and just enjoy the rain on its roof. The energy of the home is inviting and really helped us to have a great trip in London.

I can't say enough great things about the home and Darshi and her family. We were so welcomed and loved and I would stay there again in a heart beat! Thank you so much.

  • Quite simply, a great place to stay. In terms of location it's a three minute walk to Westbourne Grove, and the bus stop is 30 seconds away which can take you to the centre of town asap.

    The flat is very child friendly - we were there with our two year old - and well kitted out. Because it's a basement flat there isn't a huge amount of natural light, but the internal lighting brightens the place up. The flat felt secure and was wonderfully quiet.

    Darshita was very accommodating and flexible and i'd thoroughly recommend her as a hostess.

There is an internal garden which lights up at night. All appliances worked perfectly. The apartment has everything you need including one of the most amazing book collections i have ever seen. New widescreen tv, comfy couch, beautiful bathroom. The list goes on. We were truly blessed to have stayed here.
