GRACIOUS 2 BR/BA FLAT WITH WORKING FIREPLACE IN NOTTING HILL

Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This traditional English flat is housed in a beautiful white period townhouse in Notting Hill and overlooks a charming garden square.

With a working fireplace and impressive oak furniture, the Portobello has a warm and inviting atmosphere. The living room is filled with light from tall windows making it an utterly delightful place to be.

The Portobello benefits from a central location and good transport links making it the perfect base for your London holiday.

This flat is situated on a pretty, private garden square in Notting Hill Gate. It is extremely quiet because there is almost no traffic, even though it is only moments from bustling Portobello Market.

This colourful, exciting area has many pubs, restaurants and trendy cafes. You will find traditional fish & chip shops alongside a huge variety of ethnic food. If you want to update your wardrobe, you can find the latest trends on the market stalls or browse in upscale boutiques.

Take a 10 minute stroll and you will be in the middle of leafy, green Kensington Gardens. Kensington Palace, home to generations of British Royals, is located within the park. A quick tube ride and you will be in the West End with its theatres, restaurants and glittering shops.

Hello. We decided to buy this flat on St. Stephens Gardens because of it's unique location on a private garden square in Notting Hill Gate. It's a lovely flat and has become one of our best rental flats in London. Families with teens love it because of the two bathrooms and spacious living area throughout the flat. We live in London and such are available to our guests 24/7. Two of our girls go to school in London and the oldest is taking her Masters in business in Pamplona, Spain.

Carl and Liz Risberg purchased this apartment in 2005

We chose to buy this particular flat because it was in Notting Hill Gate which is a very trendy area of London. Hollywood has filmed many movies in this area. The Portobello Market is less than 5 minutes away. The private garden square just outside the front door is lovely and can be used by our guests. It also has a play area for smaller children. The buses run 24/7 only one minute away.

The flat is quite large and spacious. It has a Victorian working gas fireplace in the living room. This flat is on the ground floor so there are no steps to maneuver. The garden square is lovely in the Spring and summer, our guests are more than welcome to use it. There are many trendy restaurants and pubs close by so one can walk to and from the restaurants. The buses are moments away which go in every direction of London. Notting Hill Gate Tube Station is less than 10 minutes walk. The Portobello Market is less than 5 minutes away. The streets are lined with handsome old Victorian period buildings.

SPRING BREAK IN LONDON

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and our 2 children, age 21 and 16 stayed here in April and found flat to be very comfortable and clean. The location was great-lovely area, quiet, walking distance to Portobello Market. Bus and tube very accessable. Loved the Italian restaurant right across the street, and The Cow pub around the corner. Especially liked having food stocked in our flat- a service that was offered. However, extra toilet paper and laundry soap not included, so buy or bring your own. The owners were very welcoming and prompt with answers to e-mails. Only downfall was dealing with money exchange: rate, wire transfer from US bank, finalizing payments. That was a real test of patience-probably on both sides. Heads up: be certain you know entire fee before signing rental agreement. Aside from that, the entire stay was comfortable and very enjoyable with owners being more than accomodating.

Cher Carl,
Je tenais à vous remercier de votre extrème gentillesse. Merci de nous avoir permis d'habiter dans votre bel appartement durant notre séjour à Londres. Quel bonheur de pouvoir s'y poser après une journée de shopping à Londres. L'endroit était très calme et Nottinghill un lieu magnifique avec le marché de Portobello juste à côté. Ma famille qui ne connaissait pas Londres en a gardé un souvenir très agréable Nelly nous a réservé un acceuil très chaleureux à notre arrivée et on ne manquera pas de revenir chez vous à notre prochaine visite à Londres. J'ai transmis vos coordonnées à mes amis qui sont intéressés.
Bien cordialement, Elizabeth&famille

VERY GOOD APARMENT IN A GREAT NEIGHBOURHOOD

  • 5 of 5
Me and two of my friends rented this apartment for a weekend trip to London. We got a very good service from the owners and staff, quick response to our e-mails before arrival and good services after our arrival. This apartment was very spacious for three of us and was very clean and tidy. It had all equipment needed, towels, soup, refrigerator, dishes, glasses etc. The best thing about the apartment was the location, it is situated in a very nice neighbourhood. There was a 2 – 5 min walk to everything needed, grocery store, restaurants, bars, the tube, bus stops and other stores. I will definitely check for the availability of this apartment when I visit London again.

VERY NICE FLAT IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our stay started out with a small glich but was effectively and efficiently sorted out by Carl and Liz. The flat is very nice and exactly as described. The location is a quiet neighborhood with a very nice adjoining park. There are several local, non-touristy, pubs within easy walking distance and the Tube station is an easy 15 min. walk or bus ride. I would definately recommend for anyone that desires something more than just a traditional hotel stay.

Liz, Carl and Nelly went out of their way to make a special stay for our first family trip abroad. Great location, comfortable and clean furnishings, easy check-in/out, super authentic neighborhood feel with a double plus for the driving, shopping and internet/phone service.

Can't wait to come back

REVIEW OF OUR STAY IN NOTTING HILL

  • 4 of 5
Our family of four stayed in the Notting Hill flat during our holiday in London in September. The flat was in line with our expectations based on the photos. We really appreciated the extra space that a flat provides over a hotel, and the kitchen was also really appreciated because we didn't want to eat out every meal. The flat is very clean and comfortable, and the location is great with proximity to buses, trains, restaurants, pubs, parks and shops. It is difficult to single out a particular restaurant - all that we tried in the local area were good. We met Nelly on our arrival, who was very helpful. The local mobile phones were also very useful.
