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:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

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.

LOVELY PLACE, VERY KIND HOSTS.

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here for nine days whilst sitting some very important exams. Philip and Cassie are very kind and welcoming people who were never far away to answer any questions and offer assistance. The flat is lovely and just as pictured. There was also a welcome basket and the fridge was stocked with essentials, which was much appreciated and went above and beyond what I had expected. The location is also wonderful as it is within walking distance of Portobello Market and not too far away from any other key sites in London by tube. I know London well, having lived there in the past, and have stayed in many places around London. I would highly recommend their flat to anyone, especially anyone new to London.

PERFECT HOME BASE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Perfectly Petite for two weeks and it was the perfect base for all of our sightseeing. It was spotlessly clean, everything worked well, the WiFi was fast, and the bed was really comfortable. It was a great help to have the washing machine so we didn't have to go out and find a laundromat. Although located in a residential area, the bus stop was a two minute walk away and the tube (both Ladbroke or Latimer road stations) was a twenty minute walk at the most. We could get everywhere we wanted to, no matter what time of day. There was a large Sainsburys not far from the flat, which was perfect for picking up what ever we needed for our meals. Phillip was so helpful the day we arrived, showing us around the area and providing some great tips as well. When we head back to London, we would stay here again without hesitation!
