North Kensington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This super stylish loft style home boasts wonderful lateral space, the rarest of features in London housing. On your doorstep are the uber fashionable areas of Portobello and Golbourne Road markets and Westbourne Grove. Breezy transport links can have you in bustling Oxford Street, the soothing Royal Parks, major museums and other landmarks within 1/2 hour.

Contemporary in style, accented by key family antiques, modern collector pieces and exquisite soft furnishings, a well stocked library and three extremely well appointed double bedrooms with 2 luxurious hotel like bathrooms, this impeccably furnished home, owned by an Anglo American family, has a 'right on' mix of American comfort and quirky Britishness.

A balanced fusion of original modern art and large scale colourful abstract textiles adorn the expansive white walls, mixed in with personal touches and objects trouve’, give this home an undeniable aura of elegance with a twist of spirited bohemian style.

After a busy day out in the capital, stretch out in the open plan 45 foot room spanning 2 super spacious reception areas with 2 deep plush sofas and enjoy the unique experience of cooking a meal in the cutting edge German bulthaup b3 kitchen. Or head out to a family dinner at Pizza East or any of the other great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.

Privacy and quiet are another key feature of Sunswept Loft which is tucked away, through a gate and down a ferny landscaped path. As if that was not enough, open blue sky views onto the park in front allow the sun to spill in unobstructed through all six windows, ensuring this home earns its reputable name.


You cannot get any more high end than the state of the art ultramodern German bulthaup b3 kitchen ( A fully integrated Gaggenau fridge/freezer (akin to Subzero), dishwasher and a stainless steel freestanding Viking Professional 4 burner stove will delight the serious foodie.

Watch, Listen and Work (if you have to)

WIFI is of course standard. There's a Bowers and Wilkins A7 wireless Airplay dock for your tunes and a top of the range 40' Samsung D8000 HD 3D TV, Lovefilm streaming movies and full cable with premium channels for those quieter evenings in.

Sleeping Quarters

A short flight of stairs takes you to three well appointed double bedrooms all with luxurious sprung mattresses and five star sheets. The sumptuous master bedroom has a super king size bed and there are a further 2 double bedrooms each with 2 single/twins sleeping four more people. Large velux pivoting windows let in lots of natural light which can be subdued with awning shades when a dark atmosphere is desired.

Pamper Zone

To soak away the effects of tramping around London, a steaming hot bath can be had in the oversized old fashioned cast iron tub in the roomy family style bathroom, while the 2nd bathroom has a spacious walk in shower with a large rain effect shower head, a delightful way to start or end your carefree London day.

All this nestled within the highly sought after area of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Jump on the bus which stops right outside the front door and start your London adventure!

The American owner has been living in London for 20 years having grown up in the sunny climes of Santa Barbara, CA where they spend their vacations. This home has been hosting guests for several years now attested by the 5 start feedback rating of contented families who have made life long memories of their holidays here.

Marina Mazur purchased this house in 2008

Notting Hill and the life blood that is Portobello Market is inspiring to be a part of each day. It is a real neighbourhood in the old fashioned sense. Daily trips to Portobello Road for your morning capp, procuring of vegetables & fruit from old fashioned greengrocer stalls in the market itself and generally soaking up the wonderful atmosphere make this area very special. It still retains it's individual feel and there is a wonderful mix of ethnic races which add to the local flavour. Leafy streets, great architecture and the wonderful open green space of Kensington Memorial Park literally next door are wonderful amenities. The tennis courts in the park and the playground area is a real godsend for kids!

This unique home has a wonderful sense of space and light which it gets from it's windows on three sides. The sun rises through the kitchen window and sets through the sitting room windows while during the day it travels around the 3 windows on the side of the house. This home has great flow and can absorb a family comfortably so everyone can be doing their own thing without bumping into each other such as in more typical terraced housing where the houses are vertical versus horizontal.

A peaceful and beautiful sanctuary within Central London

This is one of those houses, where the photos are splendid, but the real thing is even better! The house manages to balance being state of the art while also being very comfortable and relaxing.

We stayed for an entire month with our two teenagers and really appreciated the location. We had easy access to the amazing bus system right outside the door and of course the underground. We could go anywhere -- and did! But it was always so nice to go HOME.

The house is beautiful, roomy and so peaceful. It sits back off the street - you enter through a garden and then find yourself in a gorgeous home surrounded by a park. So while you are still very much in London, you can retreat to your own sanctuary.

I couldn't recommend it more highly!

We highly recommend Marina's lovely, well-appointed and restful flat. For the most part, it's location offered a welcome retreat at the end of our busy days in other areas of London. Marina is attentive to every detail and takes excellent care of her guests. Unfortunately, our first few days there were interrupted by the chaos and commotion of the Notting Hill Carnival. While we would book with Marina again, we would avoid booking anything in Notting Hill the last weekend in August.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Sunswept loft. The pictures and description were accurate and we had no surprises upon arrival. The home was clean, beautifully decorated and the kitchen well stocked with everything that you would need. We are a family of 5 with 2 teenage children and a 9 year old and we were very comfortable in this home. Having a park right next door with fields to play football was an added bonus! Whenever we had any questions, the owner was helpful and prompt with her responses.

Enjoyed our time immensely at the loft

We had a wonderful stay at the loft. Everything was exactly as described, and beautifully appointed. We are a family of four, two adults and two kids, ages 10 and 13. The home was very comfortable for us, especially the beds. Our kids had the use of a park right next door, which was great for both them and us. We would let them go play there alone and didn't worry. There is a convenient bus that stops just up the block, and a tube stop nearby. We easily got around London from this location, which is near Portobello Rd and some very cute neighborhood areas that offer good places to eat and shop. It is quiet, and away from the bustle of Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, which was a relief at the end of a busy day. I would say this is a perfect place for families with older children, such as ours, because the place is filled with beautiful things, and care needs to be taken. All in all, a great trip, and I highly recommend Marina's loft for your next trip to London. We would love to return.

My family (4 adults, 2 small children) had a very enjoyable stay at this property. From the initial contact with Marina to the final check out, the experience was everything we hoped it would be.

The house itself is a gem. After spending the day sightseeing on the busy streets of London the property was a tranquil space that we looked forward to returning to every night. The kitchen is well equipped and the appliances are all top notch. The living space is large with enough room for the kids to play in one area while the adults prepare dinner. The bedrooms are all comfortably equipped and large enough. No issues with the shower or bathtub. Everything was exactly as advertised. One word of caution – the countertop is very sensitive to acidic foods and liquids. It will etch and there was adequate warning from the property manager about this. We did our food prep on the secondary stainless steel counter and had no issues.

Marina went over and above to make us feel welcome. She left age appropriate toys for our 2 kids (2 & 5) and made sure there was a crib and high chair out and available for use. The kids loved the house but loved the park next door even more. This was ideal for the girls and they enjoyed running around and playing with new friends at the end of each day.

The house is located in a beautiful area and the nearby Portobello Market is a great place to buy everything from fresh produce to antiques. Getting downtown to the major sights does take about half an hour on the tube but is very easy to navigate. In a taxi you’re looking at about 16 pounds each way.

We absolutely recommend this property and very much appreciate Marina’s hospitality and attention to detail.
