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

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.
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.
My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Stephens Gardens. Location was ideal, quiet and peaceful yet very handy for tube stations and it felt very safe. Apartment was tastefully appointed and with two bathrooms ideal for our party. Good Wi-fi reception was a bonus. Would recommend and hopefully we will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Notting Hill. Liz and Carl as well as their employees were most helpful and welcoming. Several buses run from the end of the street to Notting Hill Gate Tube Station from which point the Central ,Circle or District lines or buses give easy access to all points in London. The flat is comfortable, clean, quiet, well-equipped and in a very safe area of London with pubs and restaurants within walking distance. There is a playground area across the street for families with young children. We were all senior citizens and would have no hesitation in renting it again on our next visit to London or recommending it to future visitors.
This is the perfect Flat for a Family. It has everything what you need for your Trip to London: a perfect Location, cleanness, comfortable and high end furniture, big living room with wide Window to the quiet street and Play Ground. I would recommend this Flat to Friends.
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
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.
