I am a musician and composer, I live most of the time in the countryside in Suffolk, and the flat is my London getaway pad.
We had a wonderful time in Francie's flat! Francie has thought about every detail and she's still quite available in case you need help. The flat is so cute and handy, very well located near Nothing Hill and the Portobello Market. And you have a piano and some small speakers for a musical atmosphere.
=> All good, just enjoy!
I wish I could have met Francie, our host, but her daughter was very patient when our arrival was delayed and she came to the flat to be sure we got in ok. The flat is exactly like the pictures except a piano has replaced the long table. I slept in the bay window and was very comfortable, my nephew was the one who climbed to the loft bed. The flat is clean and had everything we needed for our stay May 21-27, 2014. Her internet connection is great. Location is about 3 blocks walk from the underground station. Felt safe in the well lit neighborhood. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance. We didn't cook but did keep items in the refrigerator and use the washer/dryer. Francie was very good to keep in touch with me before the reservation was confirmed, when I booked, before our arrival and during our stay. She always answered any questions promptly. Book any rental Francie offers, she's the best!
Fantastic experience, my first with Airbnb.
Hi we stayed here 2-7 may and it was a neat little place. 5 min walk to westbourne park tube station and close to portebello road and markets. We enjoyed our stay as we were out for most of the day and really wanted a place to crash at the evenings. Great as it had a washing machine so we could wash out clothes and dry it. I would recommend this place :) close to nicr little food places like Gails and Lowry & Baker! enjoy London! :)
Very clean, cosy and comfortable apartment in a nice area. And communication with Francie was very kind. I really felt at home right from the beginning. Highly recommended :-)
Our stay at Francie's flat was amazing! The location was absolutely perfect and the flat was cute and clean. We would definitely stay there again if we had the chance to go back to London.
Flat has a really comfortable and homey vibe. Bathroom was very clean and it was a great touch to provide milk and biscuits upon my arrival - cup of tea after my flight was just what I needed :) Both double and sofa beds were very comfortable.
(email hidden) to stay for my 3 day exploration of London with many cafes, and restaurants nearby. Thanks Francie!
The studio is great and conveniently located. Francie, the host, was also great --- everything worked out very well.
My stay in Fracie s place was amazing. Everything worked perfectly. It is clean, well equipped, the w shower is great, wifi very fast, the tube is pretty close, - bus stop too, quiet, portobelo road is nearby, grocery stores and good restaurants around. I would stay there again for sure. Furthermore, Francie is very nice and Im sure she would give us support if anything that was not in the plans had happened.
Nice and cosy flat well located. The apartment was clean and well presented and Francie precise and polite in communication
Very sweet and cozy apartment in an area of London which I really love. A quick 10mins walk to Portobello Road with lots of restaurants and shops along the way.
The apartment was very clean and tidy, we had some really good night sleeps. Frances was a great, helpful and quick communicator. Unfortunately we didnt meet in person. Everything, including the hand-over of the keys went perfectly and was very well organized!! Thanks a lot for having us!!
I have stayed at both of Frances' places in London, as well as her house in Suffolk. She is so lovely and all her houses are completely gorgeous! This particular flat is the perfect location for hanging out in London. We had such a great time here and it was so much nicer than staying in a hotel. I will definitely come back!
Frances is an one of the most charming, cultured and fascinating people you could hope to meet. Her lovely studio apartment in the heart of Notting Hill, London's most exclusive bohemian enclave, is literally the perfect base for anyone exploring London. You will not be disappointed.
