Welcome! I know you are going to love it here. My place is a cosy one bedroom apartment which feels bright, spacious and modern. I have tried to create a contemporary farmhouse vibe for my guests. However, the interiors are not all that is on offer! If you stay here, you will be located in the heart of Notting Hill. This is know as a great area, and for good reason :) There are lots of quirky shops and stalls on Portobello Road and cool events going on like the Notting Hill Carnival in summer.
Welcome to my home and welcome to this amazing city! This is a beautiful cosy yet modern chic 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment. But don't take my word for it... let me walk you through it a little more!
The apartment has a really spacious and contemporary living room which has a real family feel to it. There is a comfy sofa for guests to use where you can put your feet up in the evenings, kick back and relax! This sofa is also a sofa bed which can comfortably sleep another person. Fancy an evening off? Then sit back, relax and turn on the flat screen TV. There are plenty of channels for you to enjoy. The living area is also home to the dining area, which is the perfect spot to enjoy some local delicacies. Top tip, take a stroll down Portobello Road where you will find lots of street food vendors - you will be sure to take home some edible goodies from here!
If cooking a gourmet meal at home is more your thing, then rest assured the kitchen will have everything you need in it such as all the basic condiments, and as an added extra we make sure that there is also always plenty of tea, coffee and sugar so that you can make yourself a traditional British cuppa in the morning! There are also all the mod-cons such as toaster, kettle and dishwasher that you might expect. We really want to ensure that you have a comfortable stay here in London!
The bedroom has a double bed and is spacious with colourful homely touches. There is also plenty of storage space for guests to store all their belongings.
Finally, the bathroom will always come stocked with plenty of white fluffy towels and all the essential toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel and hand soap that you need to ensure that you have a comfortable stay in London.
The apartment comes with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, iron and ironing board, so that you can look fresh for exploring the city or for any business meetings! A baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
The apartment is your own. Cleaned professionally with fresh luxury linens, it's prepared for each new visitor.

There’s a reason why so many films are set in Notting Hill. The neighborhood’s cobblestoned streets weave through scrunched alleyways and richly furnished Victorian town homes, and its stylish shops and passionate antique vendors satiate design-driven appetites—Notting Hill’s famed Portobello Road Market is a rummager’s delight. Make sure you look out for the best doorknob shop in London. Celebrated as much for its idyllic streetscapes as it is for its cafe lifestyle and ephemeral fancies, it’s easy to understand Notting Hill's cinematic celebrity. As you can see, there is so much more to Notting Hill than the famous movie which was filmed here! There are also plenty of bars and restaurants which are busy throughout the week with young professionals and families alike. Take a trip to Portobello Road for the best selection of unique shops - including the best doorknob shop in London!
The closest tube is 100 metres away at Westbourne Park. Which takes you into central London. Notting hill gate tube is a 10 min walk. There is a super convenient bus service 1 street away that pretty much takes you in any direction.
A great local tip is to download the Citymapper app. This free app will plan your journey for you efficiently and quickly. It gives you a variety of different transport options such as bike, rail, tube and Uber taxi. It will also take you step by step through your journey as you travel and notify you when you are nearing your destination.
Other things to note
My place is located within a traditional British building on the first floor. Like most old and traditional London properties, there is no lift. Although this means you can give your legs a nice stretch, my place may be unsuitable for people with mobility issues.
