About John

Born in Portugal, Lisbon, then lived in Chile, Indonesia and now London, I work to make my property the most accommodating in this city.

As a seasoned traveler myself, I understand the importance of the comfort of home as well as an adventurous experience in a new city. I combine both of these to ensure a positive, memorable experience for all of my guests.

I enjoy traveling, great food and vibrant atmospheres and want to share that with others through our property locations. These locations are all minutes away from my friends and my favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping areas. We really love it here and know you will too!

I look forward to welcoming you to my city!

Beautiful apartment and incredible location!

The apartment was just as described and perfectly clean and set up.

Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to London.

Small, but convenient

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very clean and in a safe neighborhood. It is only 6 blocks from the Ladbroke Grove tube station, which is very convenient. It is also just 2 blocks from a grocery store.

It is as represented - small, but sufficient for 2 adults and 2 same-sex children. I don't think it would be comfortable for 4 adults.

The street can be a little noisy at night, but nothing you wouldn't expect in any big city. Usually quieted down after 10pm.

A few things I'd call out - no fan for hot nights. Also no top sheet - we used the duvet cover. It would be nice to have a top sheet or very light blanket. There were many heavier blankets for cool nights.

We did run into a problem with the hot water, as someone else did. It was immediately fixed, but I would suggest testing it on arrival, so that is handled right away.

Also - there is no 'housekeeping' during your stay, which is mentioned in the information provided. I did not understand this to mean that we would not get any clean towels or have any extra towels available. We were provided just 4 bath and 4 hand towels for 4 people. Staying 9 nights, we needed to wash them (in the provided machine) and hang them to dry. This worked fine, but I think this should be understood - in the past, staying at other properties, we had extra towels, so washing was not necessary.

Overall, a good spot for a family or couple who just need a place to sleep, shower and maybe eat some breakfast before getting out on the tube to see all the great sites London has to offer!

Thank you

The flat was fine, the circumstances were not.

  • 3 of 5

The flat was well situated in Notting Hill and a block away from Portobello Road. There are many pubs; grocery stores; restaurants; and cafes near the premises. There is also a municipal bike rental kiosk next to the premises, which was very convenient. The premises was clean and well maintained.

As others have mentioned, the washroom is a very tight space due to the placement of the hot water heater. I am 6'3" and using the facilities was a significant challenge. I had full disclosure of this issue from the listing description, but I underestimated the challenge.

There was a significant negative aspect of our stay at the flat. The flat was adjacent to a flat that was being completely renovated. Construction/demolition noise started at 0730 every morning and was non-stop throughout the day. This was very frustrating after late nights at the theatre or long days of sight-seeing. We emailed our contact and while he was responsive, he was unable to affect any change.

It was a case of bad timing; however, we did not receive "quiet enjoyment" of the premises, which is unfortunate when the cost of the rental was significant.

The pull out sofa bed is absolutely horrible. It's so hard and uncomfortable. The flat is super tiny also. It should be advertised as a flat for two adults and one or two children. Way to small for four adults.

Great Introduction to London!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment in Notting Hill on our first visit to London. The convenient location made it easy to get around by Tube and on foot - there are 3 Tube stations within a 10 minute walk. Several buses also run through the neighborhood, and were a great way to see more of the surrounding area.

The first floor apartment was clean, welcoming and nicely appointed (although - as noted by other reviewers - the narrow bathroom might be snug for some larger guests). King size bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, although it was a bit awkward to reach the plates and cups which were in a cabinet above the corner sink. (I was also somewhat surprised that there was no real "teapot" provided among the dishes to brew a pot of tea - I improvised using a French press coffee pot, which worked but wasn't what I expected in London!)

We walked quite a lot in the neighborhood to the shops and pubs (Sainsbury's Local for groceries/wine, Granier for bread, Whittard's for tea, the Earl of Lonsdale and the Duke of Wellington for pub lunches) but also headed out to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park on foot. Lovely way to see and get a feel for the area! We also had a very enjoyable dinner at a restaurant called Hereford Road not far away - great food and wonderful service! The Portobello Road Market on the weekend was great fun.

This property is on a quiet residential street, but it is a multi-unit building so some noise from other tenants is to be expected. Unfortunately, during our stay apparently someone was doing late-night renovations in a flat on the floor above, starting several nights around 10:30 PM and running until the early hours of the morning.

John and his team were very helpful and accommodated our request to drop off our luggage early on the day we arrived; they also provided very clear and useful information both before our arrival and in the flat. Everything was well explained and easy to understand.

Thank you for making our first trip to London so enjoyable!

Perfect for a Business traveler

  • 4 of 5

The team was extremely professional, responsive and patient as I arrived later than expected. The flat was clean and had everything I needed. Hopefully, now Mac users can easily connect to the wifi since that was a struggle for a couple of days (Note: This is not anything to do with the owners or the rental, and with their guidance I was able to implement a fix). The flat is reasonably close to Whole Foods. The proximity to the Portabello Market was fantastic. I loved strolling through the market. As advertised just a 10-minute stroll to a Tube station. Thanks for having me and being great hosts.
