Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

For most of the year we live in Hawaii and during that time we rent out our beautiful, comfortable, light and spacious 2 bedroom maisonette, which is available for weekly rental in the heart of charming and picturesque Primrose Hill Village, London. We find that its private and quiet location - whilst having direct access to all that London has to offer - is proving to be a real oasis in buzzing Central London.

Our property is only a minute’s walk from a multitude of charming local shops, gastro-pubs, cafes and restaurants on England’s Lane and Primrose Hill Road. The weekly Organic Farmer’s Market is just a stone’s throw away. The affluent and fashionable neighborhood of Primrose Hill and Hampstead has an impressive historical track record of attracting prominent people in the Sciences, Literature, Arts, Media and Financial Sectors. Residents of this area enjoy the friendly, local shops and restaurants, however just as easily venture out further to enjoy world renowned Opera, Theater, Symphony Concerts, Museums, parks, restaurants and nightlife.

The location is very green and quiet, yet the bus, the Tube (underground) and taxis are all very easily accessible.

About Anouk de Jonge

We are a professional couple, based in Hawaii. Our family, friends, and business connections take us to London and Europe on a regular basis. Since the trips settled into a regular rhythm, in 2012 we decided to buy a property in London, and make it into a second home. Choosing the area and flat carefully, we then remodeled and furnished it to our taste. There is comfortable furniture in a modern style; art work; excellent appliances; inviting beds… in other words, the comforts of home.

Since we only get to London a few times a year, for a few weeks at a time, we decided to rent it out when not there. Our daughter has her full-time residence in London, close by. She introduces renters to the home, makes sure they are comfortable, and handles any issues promptly.

We take personal cheques, bank transfers and Paypal payments. We will be able to take credit card payments in the near future.

Anouk de Jonge purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Anouk de Jonge chose Westminster & West End

We fell in love with the village feel that the Primrose Hill area has to offer, while also being so close to the parks, and having easy access to our favourite London activities, whether musical, artistic, gastronomic or touristic.

Whether one prefers the Starbucks around the corner, fancies something tasty from the local English bakery, or looks forward to Tea & Scones near the Thames; it can all be enjoyed from here.

All the main attractions are near from this location. Here are a few options:

- Seven minute walk to the famous Primrose Hill Park, which connects directly to Regents Park (which connects to South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Harrods, etc).

- Five minute walk to Swiss Cottage Tube Station (Jubilee Line). Seven minute walk to Belsize Park Station (Northern Line).

- Ten minutes Tube ride to Bond Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Square, Covent Garden (National Gallery, Tate Modern, Royal Opera House).

From going shopping in famous Covent Garden, New Bond Street or Westfield (Europe's Largest Luxury shopping Center), to visiting world famous Ballet, Opera and Broadway Shows, everything is just a short walk, tube or taxi ride away. The area boosts a wealth of historically important buildings, has many old statuesque trees, green open spaces, and old Victorian buildings.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is one of our homes, and we treat it as such - a special place with all the amenities and comforts that one would like. This means that you will experience an extra level of care, attention to detail and charm during your stay.

Location: Central London at your doorstep.

Tranquil: Get your well needed rest after exploring all London has to offer in the quiet, friendly neighborhood of Primrose Hill.

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay here. The flat is cozy but very well arranged, with lovely furniture and good light. The location was perfect for us—Primrose Hill is a very nice neighborhood, and going into central London was quite easy with a 7-8 minute walk to the Northern Line tube. We were traveling with our 2 year old and Anouk was very kind in offering a crib for her, and in offering a couple of boxes of toys for us to use as well—when traveling with a child, such details really make a difference. We would absolutely recommend the flat and would stay here again as well.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a real find. Absolutely as shown in the photos on the website and well equipped for a perfect stay. Very comfortable bed in the main bedroom. I was concerned about heating as we stayed for nearly three weeks in December/January but we were cosy even during some really cold snaps. I was a bit put off when we first arrived as this is an ex housing commission property and the block of maisonettes is obviously still partly used for public housing which creates a downmarket impression in the entrance area and stairs, and some of the gardens at the rear (which can be seen from the apartment) are run down. However all the neighbors we met were charming and we never felt unsafe in the area. Be aware that there are four flights of stairs to negotiate to get to the front door, which is hard with heavy suitcases. It's worth finding out the Street number of the building in advance as well. We just had the name of the building, which has no Street number displayed, and cab drivers found it difficult to locate. These were all minor issues though, and I would certainly recommend the property without hesitation, and will stay here again if in London. Its location is far enough from the tourist nightmare of central London, but still quite convenient for theatres etc. we walked to the Camden Roundhouse and Camden markets. If the Swiss Cottage Tube is too far to walk there is a frequent bus to Swiss Cottage from the corner of the road. Tesco Express in Primrose Hill is open long hours and has a good range of grocery essentials. Many thanks Anouk for letting us rent your lovely home.

arrival and departure were well coordinated and we would happily stay again.

What a thoroughly pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Close to the tube, close to shopping, quiet, fully equipped, clean, close to Primrose Hill.. Listen, I am reluctant to go poetically beyond the facts because then you will all want to come and where will that leave us when we want to come back? It is surprisingly wonderful because the first impression down stairs is not the best. And Anouk is very helpful. Rent it, but not when we want it again.

Fantastic stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week in London, thanks in big part to our stay in this homey flat. The location could not have been better; on a quiet/lovely side street but just a few blocks in either direction of great restaurants and shops. The short walk to the tube and bus stops made getting around greater London a breeze. Our host was very accommodating throughout our stay and the flat had all the necessities and felt like a 2nd home. If you are looking for a cozy and relaxed homebase for your London travels, this is it!

A very nice flat at an excellent location in Primrose Hill.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Primrose Hill flat for five nights in early June 2016. We found the advertised description of the flat and amenities to be reflective of what we encountered upon arrival. The flat is two levels with the bedroom and bathroom(s) upstairs and the flat entry, kitchen and living room downstairs. From street level, you enter the foyer through the building's locked front door and then climb two floors (four flights of stairs) and access the flat from an outside walkway - something to consider if you have several suitcases. We were very busy each day in the neighbourhood or walking to Regent's Park or Camden Town or tubing to London. The location was excellent with short walking access to Belsize Park, Chalk Farm and Swiss Cottage tube stations. On our first evening after arriving we walked to Primrose Hill which has an amazing view of the London skyline. This really helped orient us for our outings the next number of days. Many locals were at the park that evening enjoying the views and having a picnic or glass of wine. We had breakfast in and when not having dinner out in London we tried several restaurants near to the flat - on Primrose Hill Road and Regent's Park Road. There is a small TESCO Express nearby for groceries and drinks. and it is open late. The Starbucks was handy too and busy on weekday mornings with people on the way to work or families on the way to school. The neighbourhood was quiet and safe and everyone we chatted with were very friendly and helpful. We particularly wish to thank Anouk for her communication before arriving and upon our arrival as our flight was late arriving and we got caught up in bad traffic. Through a few phone calls and texts, we figured out a creative plan to have the keys safely passed on to us so we could access the flat. We would love to return another time and hope this flat will be available for our consideration. We would highly recommend it.
