North Kensington House Rental Photos and Description

Stunning artists Mews House

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Notting Hill home is a slick and stylish retreat wooden floors throughout with wooden shutters in a super cute and very quiet Mews

An exciting idea on a grand scale… Golborne Mews fuses the old with the new to exhilarating effect. London living turned on its head, this is a stunning newly restored Mews house that’s a bit rustic, a bit modern and very, very cool. The top floor has 2 large double bedrooms and a newly fitted bathroom, creating a living space that’s more akin to a loft than a Victorian house, while downstairs, the large reception room is bright and airy and unfussy. You’re a 2 second walk from Portobello Road Market and the sweet temptations of the Golborne Road with all its lovely bars and restaurants. Stay out late in Notting Hill’s restaurants and bars, then come home to perfect peace and relax.

When not in London, your host is an Englishman in New York. An executive for a music and arts production company, he’s constantly seeking inspiration, and his UK home reflects his creative, playful nature. A Notting Hill native, when it came to setting down roots in the capital, nowhere else would do.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here! Location was fabulous. Close to tube station so very easy to get everywhere. Fun neighborhood with lots of cafes and shops. We were a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 kids ages 17, 15, and 12. Nice to come 'home' each day and be able to spread out and relax rather than being in a hotel. Jonathon was a wonderful host. Very quick to respond to any questions. We were here for 6 nights and were sad to leave.

Funky little house in fun neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Funky little bachelor pad house in Victorian muse. Very lively, friendly area with loads of great cafes and restaurants. (Celeb-spotting is a local sport.) We loved walking along Portobello Road, having coffee outside a cafe, listening to buskers and watching the market punters. Classic "Notting Hill". Close to Tube station; direct line on Tube to Paddington and Kings Cross St Pancras. Lovely beauty salon right next door to get your nails or face done. Very helpful dry-cleaners around the corner for pressing clothes. Large comfy beds; good tv and comfy sofa. Owner super friendly and very helpful. Immediate response to any questions. House cosier than appears in the photos and the vibe is much more "staying at a friend's place" than sterile serviced apartment. You have to work around owners stuff, with some quirks such as no rubbish bins at all, very little china or cooking equipment - but with so many fun eating options nearby why bother cooking at home? Some agility needed to enter and exit shower over bath, and curly staircase. We had a really enjoyable week here and would recommend to younger, active friends rather than tea pot and ironing board set.

Did not quite live up to expectations

  • 3 of 5

We had high hopes for this place, but it fell short of our expectations in a few ways:

- We were surprised to discover that charges were deducted from our deposit due to our flight delays, since that had not been spelled out in the Ts and Cs

- There were many fragile pieces of art and personal items placed on the floors, which were tricky to safely navigate around

- A steep spiral staircase to the second floor makes it unsuitable for those with small kids or those with mobility issues

- We could not close one of the bedroom doors more than halfway because the large bed frame was in the way

- In one of the bedrooms, there was nowhere to put our stuff other than the floor, and no place for our personal items in the bathroom, as all of the shelves were occupied

This flat is situated in an excellent location on a lovely cobblestoned street. It had a good shower and reliable wireless access.

Owner's Response: Sadly this was possibly the worst group of guests we have had so far I'm afraid to say and I'll explain why Firstly the arranged check in was for midday which was earlier than regular check in but I always ensure our guests are accommodated however nobody arrived nor even bothered to call us which was not helpful as I ensured I was at the house on time to greet them as we do with all of our guests over the years I then finally got a call some 3 hours later to advise they were delayed and would now be checking in at 11pm?! This was not ideal and I explained I had other commitments being a dinner that evening I would have to miss but assured them I would be there at that new time. Once again 11pm came and went with no arrival no phone call no text message no email nothing at all leaving me not knowing what to do as one might expect. They then finally show up at 2am so extremely late leaving me with no public transport to get home outside of ruining my own long planned evening, the part I least appreciated was that neither of the women even thought to apologise at any point?! I explained to them I would need to take a taxi due to the extremely late time and that they would need to cover this which anyone would understand, so I deducted £10 from their deposit although my actual taxi cost me £13:21 as I showed them the Uber receipt One of the ladies began complaining very rudely at this claiming that I should pay for the taxi which I thought was appalling poor manners and decency so I am not surprised by this review although saddened as we tend to always have lovely kind respectful guests so this really is a strange one I shall put down to experience as not everyone is so kind decent and respectful in life which is a shame Regards the other points I shall respond accordingly We have ample wardrobe space in one of the bedrooms for more then 5 guests which you can in fact see in our images and there is also bedside tables with further drawers and cupboard space We do indeed have a spiral staircase and have never in some 11 years of renting experienced any issues or complaints in this regard and we regularly have both elderly and young children as guests in fact we currently have a family with an 86 year old grandmother and 2 young children aged 3 and 6 There is no art on the floors I'm unsure why this is stated as our art is hung on walls? All doors in the house including the door to the main king size bedroom close completely so again quite odd?

Great house, good location, really helpful host

  • 4 of 5

2 adults and a 6 year old we had a great time. The house was really comfortable lots of interesting things to look at and had everything we needed. Really comfortable beds. After full on days doing all the tourist things great to come back and relax. Lots of good food places right on the doorstep. The pizza restaurant which is nearly opposite was good and the cafe that also had all the vinyl in did a great breakfast.

Jon was really helpful helping out with directions and local knowledge and it was comforting to know he was very easy to get hold off if we needed him. Such as the pin for the child lock on the virgin box about 9.30 one evening! We did the museums, hamleys and Shrek adventure by the London eye which was really good highly recommend. All my daughter has talked of is Shrek since we got back.

Constructive comments for Jon a bin upstairs would be helpful I certainly worked my leg muscles!! Also a microwave would be useful.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review it was our pleasure having you as guests and I'm glad you all had such a lovely trip especially your daughter who I thought was hilarious how she really couldn't stop her excitement over the Shrek show, so cute!! So sorry as yes it seemed the cleaner had forgot to put the bathroom bin back upstairs after washing it, I'll ensure she remembers next time and regards microwave we really aren't so fond of using them so do not have them in our homes being more on the organic approach but I hope the other items like the Vitamix blender and hot soup maker made up for it Please come again sometime you are always welcome :)

perfect location and accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

First, what an excellent location! Right on Portobello Road which is a great location in itself with easy access to other parts of London. Jonathan was an excellent and accommodating host and went out of his way to make our stay perfect. In fact he even provided a pack and play for our daughter. It was the perfect stay for our family, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone!

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, it was ideal.

You could not ask for a better location. Just off Portobello Road, you had all the bars and eats you could ask for. But the property was also perfectly hidden away, so it gave you an un-interrupted night's sleep.

House itself was spotless, and all of the furniture made it incredibly comfortable - family adored the sofa.

Jon was great. Made it easy. And his knowledge of the area was impressive.

Just great all round. Property ticked all the boxes. The owner was helpful and very approachable. I've stayed in London many times, but never have I been so upset to leave. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.

Thanks again Jon!
