1. In the words of our Guests…

Ambience:

“Your search is over!!”

“This home is a magical place”

“We were truly blessed to have stayed here.”

“… gem of a flat in the middle of Notting Hill… just absolutely phenomenal”

“absolutely incredible!”

“in a word, amazing “

“You get the hustle and bustle of London life with the peaceful, sanctuary feel of this home”

“has the most calming feeling inside.”

“It just felt like home.”

“i would only stay in this cozy flat which i feel completely at home at and never in a hotel ever again”

Guest Care:

“the homeowners are very friendly and attentive”

“Before we even entered the home, we were already being well taken care of by Darshi as she arranged our transportation from the airport.”

“We were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail from Darshi and her accessibility if we had any issues or questions. She even found a baby high chair for our son!”

“I can't say enough great things about the home and Darshi and her family. We were so welcomed and loved and I would stay there again in a heart beat!”

“It was a pleasure for me to know Darshita and her family. London is an amazing city, and staying in this place made the trip perfect”

Brief Description:

“It's so beautiful and spacious”

“The living room is simple with beautiful artwork, yet perfectly fit for a child. The bathroom is phenomenal and we all took many relaxing baths in the large, inviting tub. The kitchen has everything you need and we slept comfortably in the bedrooms. The garden is out of a story book and hold your horses! There is a meditation room just off the garden, along with a second bathroom. Some mornings my son and I would sit in the meditation room after breakfast and just enjoy the rain on its roof. The energy of the home is inviting and really helped us to have a great trip in London.”

“The apartment has everything you need including one of the most amazing book collections i have ever seen. New widescreen tv, comfy couch, beautiful bathroom. The list goes on.”

“the bedroom opens into a terrace of over 200 square feet & you have an entire bathroom with a stand up shower & a bathtub separately”

“… a beautiful internal garden which lights up at night”

“Each detail was thought through and it was decorated with sensitivity and good taste.”

“All appliances worked perfectly”

Location:

“It's in a fantastic location”

“this is super well located in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood, and very close to bus stops and tube.”

“All the modern amenities you'd want with an amazing location with great access to the buses and a 5 minute walk to two tube stations.”

“....all the best shopping & eateries are literally around the corner and i would highly highly highly recommend this place without a single doubt!!”

3. Location, Attractions & Famous Residents

Our home is in a residential area & benefits from being in the midst of popular London tourist attractions.

We list out some of those in-the-immediate-area attractions below (e.g. Portobello Market, Little Venice, Hyde Park etc)

However our personal favourite all-day “Circular Super-Tour of London” from home, is to walk or cycle from the apartment through Hyde Park, to Wellington Arch, into Green Park, to (see the Queen & the changing of the guards at) Buckingham Palace, down the Mall along St. James’ Park, to Trafalgar Square (and maybe popping by Piccadilly Circus to say hi to Anteros), looking up at the Horse Guards, strolling by the Prime Minister’s pad at No. 10 Downing Street, to the church of all the coronations of England’s kings and queens – Westminster Abbey – to the Houses of Parliament next door, and then across the mighty Thames into the London Aquarium and up on the wheel of The London Eye, and then continuing all along the south bank of the Thames from the Royal Festival Hall to Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Borough Market, and then crossing the Millenium Bridge into the square mile of the financial City of London, to attend the marvel of an evensong under the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral… before catching a tube directly back home to Notting Hill (possibly via dinner and theatre / musical in the West End) for a well deserved long soak in the heavenly bath tub… :-)

And here are some of the attractions in the immediate vicinity:

• Catching the quirky vibe of the famous Portobello Market (10 min walk away),

• At the corner of our road, enjoying a pint or two and great food in two of ‘London’s Pub of the Year,’ Conran’s - The Cow and The Westbourne, and in a plethora of hip & trendy and other diverse pubs, restaurants & nightclubs in Notting Hill, Bayswater & Queensway, etc (5-15 mins walk)

• Immersing yourself (10 min walk) into the enchanting canal world of Little Venice

• From where you can take quaint water-buses or kayaks to the scintillating market & attractions of Camden Lock, Regent’s Park, London Zoo (20 min)

• Running, roller-blading, cycling, boating or horse-riding in Hyde Park, Central London’s largest green space hosting the late Princess Diana’s home at Kensington Palace, the Kensington Gardens, the waterways of the Serpentine, Speakers’ Corner, various outdoor art installations / sculptures & the Serpentine Gallery (20 min walk or 10 min bus / cycle ride away), as well as visiting the nearby Royal Albert Hall for the music enthusiasts, shopping attractions of High Street Kensington, the V&A, Natural History and Science museums (20-25 min bus ride away)

Beware too! You might just run into famous celebrity residents such as supermodels Claudia Schiffer & Elle Macpherson, singers Robbie Williams & Madonna, or walk to the book-shop where Hugh Grant meets Julia Roberts in the movie Notting Hill!!

Why Darshita chose Notting Hill

London is a charming city, and to be immersed in the charm makes London even more a beautiful place to visit.

My first 2 years of being in & exploring London were an absolute delight and i attribute it to the location of the apartment. The proximity to key attractions, the shops and convenience stores around, the easy transport links, and of course not to miss the saturday walks to Portobello Market & the annual Notting Hill carnival that passes right outside the street... are all very good reasons to say that this is indeed the very best place to base from in London.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You get the hustle and bustle of London life with the peaceful, sanctuary feel of this home. It's so beautiful and spacious. All the modern amenities you'd want with an amazing location with great access to the buses and a 5 minute walk to two tube stations. My husband, baby and I stayed here for a little under two weeks and were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail from Darshi and her accessibility if we had any issues or questions. She even found a baby high chair for our son! The living room is simple with beautiful artwork, yet perfectly fit for a child. The bathroom is phenomenal and we all took many relaxing baths in the large, inviting tub. The kitchen has everything you need and we slept comfortably in the bedrooms. The garden is out of a story book and hold your horses! There is a meditation room just off the garden, along with a second bathroom.

The energy of the home is inviting and really helped us to have a great trip in London. Before we even entered the home, we were already being well taken care of by Darshi as she arranged our transportation from the airport. I can't say enough great things about the home and Darshi and her family. We were so welcomed and loved and I would stay there again in a heart beat! Thank you so much.

This was our first experience with VRBO. We were very pleased with the flat, the location and the convenience of renting compared to lodging in a hotel. The manager was accessible for questions and greeted us upon arrival. Traveling with teens can be hard but because they had their own space our trip was a pleasure. I especially enjoyed the courtyard. It was nice to be able to step outside and enjoy the greenery. Excellent location! There are some great pubs and restaurants in short walking distance. It was so nice to be in an attractive neighborhood after touring all day.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this fully-equipped oasis for nearly two weeks, and found it to be convenient, well-appointed and totally comfortable. It was like living at home, but nicer! Everything you need is within walking distance, including several markets, pastry shops, restaurants, etc. Great location and easy access to Tube and buses.

Divya provided all useful maps, and guidance, including great restaurant recommendations. Also, we discovered Little Venice -- a hidden treasure very close by.

Waking up to the gorgeous tropical garden was a big plus!

We would stay in this flat again and again! Thanks, Darshi, Rowan, (Tara) and Divya

Wonderful property and outstanding service

  • 5 of 5
This vacation rental is absolutely wonderful. It's located in a quite neighborhood, but close to a tube line and extremely close to multiple bus stops. It took us a few days to figure out the best routes to specific destinations, but both the bus routes and tube routes can get you anywhere in a reasonable amount of time (like the heart of London about 30 minutes). And there are multiple restaurants/pubs and markets within short walking distance.

The flat itself is excellent. My family consists of 4, including two teenage daughters. The two bedrooms were comfortable, and my oldest daughter slept on the over-sized sofa in the living room which she thought was very comfortable. The two bathrooms came in very handy during the morning rush to begin our day. The full sized kitchen was great for breakfast meals, and we even did a few dinners, given that the supermarket was very close by. And everything was very clean.

Communication with the owner & manager was excellent. Before our trip I emailed multiple times with questions, and they were very prompt and friendly answering all of my questions. They even arranged transportation from/to the airport for us. Divya, the property manager meet us upon arrival and was very friendly. She gave us a tour of the apartment and informed us of the transportation options and local shops & stores, along with answering email questions we had throughout our stay.

We stayed for 7 days and I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting London.
