North Kensington Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Fabulously funky basement apartment with its own entrance. Ideal for vacationing couple who want London on their doorstep. Complimentary welcome pack including wine, teas, coffee and snacks etc.

Ideal for business. Only a 10 min cab ride from Paddington with its express train to Heathrow airport.

Ladbroke Grove tube station is our nearest tube station and is a gentle 10 minute stroll away through a pretty local park with lots of flowers.

The studio apartment is small and compact, but has everything you could possibly need and is very, very comfortable. That's why it's "perfectly petite" - you'll love it!!

Keywords: Studio Apartment within a new basement, built by us 3 years ago. It is underground but very, very bright.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5
Selecting this rental was a fantastic choice for us. The two of us spent 10 nights at this location - and make no mistake this location was perfect. We did not want to stay in the heart of London - we wanted a quieter, safer location. Once Philip showed us a short cut out the back door (literally a 2 minute walk) to the #7 bus - London was our oyster. The #7 takes you to Ladbroke Grove station and from there you can get anywhere. To make your traveling by bus or tube easier I recommend going on line and pre-purchasing your visitor oyster card which is mailed to you pre-loaded. It was so great that when arrived we took the tube from Heathrow to Ladbroke Grove and walked from there to Philip's place. As advertised the rental is 'Perfectly Petite' - but it has everything. Working washer/dryer, fridge, tv, comfortable murphy bed, and excellent wifi. Because we had 10 full days in London we were out sightseeing most of the time - but happy to have a nice quiet place to return to each evening. Philip was fantastic - before I even got there if I had a question I could just phone him and he was happy to help. He has the rental full of maps and traveler books, transit information, restaurant recommendations, even an umbrella - which you will need. You will be within walking distance of the famous Portobello Market which is a great place to while away some time. Philip was always around to give a hand, he was even kind enough to help us out with booking a car service back to Heathrow for the end of our stay. By the way we can't thank him enough for his recommendation for the pub 'The Cow', we had a number of excellent meals, and excellent ales - and yes Philip we did have Guinness - and you were right it was delicious. This pub is the quintessential English pub - fantastic food and great people and only a 15/20 minute walk away. We were very pleased with the rental we selected, Philip made things very comfortable for us, our stay in London was amazing, and we recommend this rental and would stay there again ourselves.

Practically Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
2 of us stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved this studio apartment. The thoughtful welcome basket provided us with perfect late night snacks after our days on the town. The flat was small, but very neat and well stocked with all of the necessities for our stay. All of the utilities worked well and we were very happy with the convenient and speedy wifi connection. The area is very homey and not too far from the nearest underground, which we took advantage of every day. All in all, we had a great time in London and we would highly recommend Perfectly Petite to any future visitors.

Met All Our Needs

  • 5 of 5
Two of us were in London for Wimbledon but in the middle of a longer trip, so we needed somewhere to relax for a few days and to do laundry. Could not have found a better place or had better hosts. Philip greeted us warmly and helped us in many ways. The apartment was clean, everything worked properly, and the Murphy bed was comfortable. We took a local bus to Notting Hill Station to get the tube for Wimbledon; good connections. Great walking location - nearby park, Portobello Road, restaurants. Perfectly Petite deserves the 5-star ratings it receives.

Almost perfect at Perfectly Petite

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely week in June at Perfectly Petite-Name says it all, TINY but bright basement apartment clean and well maintained best for people who are petite and neat!
Adorable and graciously stocked kitchen, excellent shower, comfortable queens size pull out Murphy bed. The main critique of the creatively designed space would be the lack of adequate storage for our clothing which crowded the small space.
The unique washer dryer was a big plus, best for small daily loads. Ask your hosts for a quick tutorial on the appliances.
Located in a pretty quiet residential neighborhood on the fringe of Notting Hill. Easy ten minute stroll to the Circle line tube which connects you to most of the action. We felt very safe even coming back on the tube late at night. You definitely feel more like a resident than a tourist.

Phil and Cassie were excellent owners/host and very accessible to all our questions and concerns.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our trip to London and were surprised to read the previous review. Our experience was truly 5-star. The property is exactly as described - it is petite and it is absolutely perfect. The location is ideal for touring London without a car. We used the buses (only a half a block away) and tube station (a 10-minute walk or short bus ride) extensively and were able to get anywhere within London easily. The apartment is compact but has all the essentials and many extras. The washer-dryer was a big plus and worked beautifully (as long as we followed Philip's careful instructions). Both Philip and Cassie could not have been more helpful, accommodating, and responsive. We would happily stay there again without hesitation and highly recommend it to others.

Recent stay

  • 2 of 5
Stayed at this place recently on a trip to London.
Positives:
- clean, upgraded studio
- extras kindly provided by hosts to get you through the first day and highly appreciated
- accessible
Negatives
- inefficient communication by email with owner
- this location is a relatively out of the way
tiny basement apartment
- you can not count on getting laundry done, as machine is not working very well. Owner's response to the incident was sub-par. We ended up at our next destination with one change of clothes. Owner was apologetic, but never followed up afterwards.

Owner's Response: Dear Evgenia,
Thank you for taking time to write a review. I am delighted that you appreciated our complimentary welcome pack and the clean, comfortable accommodation.
Our guests normally value the safe, quiet neighbourhood which is only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Portobello road. Our map on the VRBO site is very detailed in order that travellers may choose the location most appropriate to their desires.
In regard to the washing machine failure I can only apologise again and I do feel for the inconvenience suffered.
Within ten minutes of your phone call alerting me to the problem I had someone with you to assist. Unfortunately, by that time, the machine door had been broken and it was not possible to give you your clothes as you were departing just a few minutes later.
Things happen that are outside everyone's control and I hope this incident did not spoil your vacation.
