It is large, airy and bright house(2500 sq ft) with high ceilings.

This looks onto the garden though ceiling to floor French windows that can be opened to the full width of the house. On the first floor the sitting room has windows which face to front and rear of the house making it an exceptionally light room. The three bedrooms are double and each has an ensuite bathroom.

The top bedroom is particularly large looking onto the front and rear of the house, with a large double bed. All the linen provided is good quality (cotton and linen sheets for instance). The other two bedrooms both have double beds (in one room the bed can be split to make two singles). Our housekeeper comes twice a week and will welcome you. She will clean the house during your stay and after your departure. It is a non smoking house.

About The Owner

David is a Londoner, born and bred, and has been a international executive. Joelle is French. We both love this city and make the most of the museums, galleries, theatres, music and films. We often take advantage of the parks as we are both keen walkers.

Why The Owner chose Bayswater

We bought this family house where we brought up our three children who are no longer living with us. We don't use it all the time because we have a house in France.

What makes this townhome unique

We benefit from everything that London has to offer!

Lovely comfortable home in a superb London neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four friends shared this lovely comfortable house for a week recently. There was plenty of room for all of us, spread out over four levels. We did especially enjoy the lower level kitchen/living room with its glass doors opening into a leafy city garden. The kitchen was very well equipped and all appliances and devices worked fine. Several things in particular cause me to recommend this property to others looking to have a great London experience. First, the three bedrooms are fairly equal in size and comfort with en suite amenities. This makes the house a good choice for adults travelling together. Second, the location and Notting Hill neighbourhood are absolutely smashing. The well-furnished house is on a very quiet street but close to Ledbury and Portobello Roads for shopping and restaurants. A great local pub was 80 paces from the front door -- we counted!! Local transportation by bus, tube and Uber was easy to sort out. Finally, the owners are very easy to deal with, responsive and welcoming. A winner!!

A REAL London home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the lovely British home last August. We loved being in this neighborhood and such an authentic home. We were just three blocks from buses going almost everywhere, great restaurants, Portabello Market, and the great Notting Hill shops. WE each had our own bathroom and bedroom. Because is in a row house there are many stairs to be aware of. We spent most of our time on the ground level in the lovely kitchen, dining, family room with the large glass garden doors open. Everything worked and when a question about the internet connections upstairs was in question someone was sent immediately. We were met upon our arrival and shown through the house. I loved the church across the way and we were entertained by foxes playing in the street and garden at night. This is such a spacious home, rooms for all. We loved our walking tour of the area. Very convenient home. I would always book their home if I needed 3 bedrooms. We felt like real Londoners.

Outstanding house in wonderful Notting Hill

  • 5 of 5

My son, daughter-in-law, and three grand children (ages 8 to 12) stayed with me in this absolutely lovely home in London's Notting Hill district. The pictures we saw before deciding on the rental 'described' the property perfectly; in fact it was better than we imagined. The spacious rooms were clean, the bed linens fresh and beautiful, the bathrooms remarkable. The kitchen/garden area was spectacular, particularly an appropriate place for the children. The owners were helpful every step of the way as we were making our rather complicated arrangements. The location was superb. We tended to walk to either the Bayswater or Notting Hill underground when we visited other parts of London; the grocery shopping close by was excellent. All in all, a truly wonderful visit and we would recommend it highly.

We want to express our may thanks for making our Olympic visit so wonderful. Your home was as stated in the profile and the location was perfect for London. Easy walks to transportation, food, pubs and great shoppig. Being in a residential neighborhood was nice. We hope to visit again soon.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the end of August 2011 (couple in our 40s, kids 9&7 and 80 year old granny).

The pictures were very accurate and the house was lovely with books and art. It was very spacious and clean with a great kitchen and modern bathroom facilities. The family room was amazing with a full wall of windows that opened fully to a lovely garden (felt like we were outside). The location could not be better with wonderful stores & restaurants all within a very easy walking distance. It was on a quiet residential street where we felt very safe. The Tube stations were about a 10 minute healthy walk ... but we actually enjoyed the neighborhood so much, we found much more to do than expected in a 5 minute walking radius!

The owners were very good at communicating details in advance. The reservation process was simple and the house had everything we expected ... and more. The kitchen had lots of unexpected benefits and the owners provided a lot of little conveniences within their house. The wireless access was very convenient and there was a large modern entertainment center in the famly room. We were very very pleased with the experience.

If I had to find something negative about the place ... the only comment I can make was that there was a lot of stairs. This was not a problem for myself, husband or two kids. It was a bit challenging for my 80 year old mom who walks with a cane. The living room is on the main floor ... and you must go down a flight of steep stairs to get to the kitchen/family room. You need to go up one or two flights of steep stairs depending on what bedroom you are heading to. This would not be a good rental for anyone with balance or walking issues. We knew about the stairs in advance from the owners, but thought it was worth mentioning here.
