About Lorna Bourke

I have been letting the apartment successfully for several years and have plenty of good reviews to share. It has been highly rated by Trip Advisor. Notting Hill London is very convenient and fashionable and the apartment is very near public transport and Portobello Road antiques market.

Lorna Bourke purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Lorna Bourke chose Kensington & Chelsea

I originally bought the apartment for my younger daughter and I lived nearby elsewhere in Notting Hill.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment in fashionable Notting Hill is completely self contained with a pretty garden and is only a few hundred yards from public transport (Ladbroke Grove tube which is on the Hammersmith & City line - convenient for Heathrow and Heathrow express from nearby Paddington). Buses, taxis, local restaurants and shops (Tesco and Sainsbury's local which are both open until midnight) are only a hundred yards away. The famous Portobello Road antiques market is just one minute's walk and West End theatres and restaurants are no more than a 15 minute tube journey.

The apartment has a wide screen smart TV with Sky Sport HD as well as broadband, Bose CD player and Ipod dock. The kitchen is fully equipped with a separate dining room and a small study. All linen and cleaning is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lorna

We have just arrived back in Cornwall. Your apartment was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We seem to have had a hectic time-we went to the opera at Covent Garden (wonderful), the PRB exhibition at the Tate Britain and saw a film at the most luxurious cinema we have ever been to, the Electric Cinema on the Portobello Road! And thankyou for the bottle of wine

Best regards

Mike (Wild)

Dear Lorna,

We wanted to tell you it was a real privilege to stay in your well-appointed apartment! It was exactly 'us', from the lovely dining area to the bath, the artworks, the light! The kitchen was such fun - it had absolutely everything we needed - we may have used all your plates! Best regards Meg (Nowack)

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this flat was excellent.

It was totally furnished with comfortable furniture, had all the kitchen appliances and utensils anyone would ever need, the shower was good, and the flat was beautiful in a very homey way. Believe the pictures!

The location was great, a short block to the tube and busses and two small superettes open until late at night, when it actually did feel safe walking around, half a block in the other direction to the Portobello market and within walking distance of several very good restaurants (try 108 Garage and Anar Persian Kitchen in the Golborne area, and Daylesford on Westbourne Grove—less than a mile walk—for breakfasts and lunches and a very good supply of everything you'll want for the kitchen, meats, cheeses, baked goods, etc., along with Ottolenghi for good takeout, just around the corner from Dalyesford on Ledbury Street).

Waking in the morning to have breakfast in the light-filled dining room next to the sheltered outside garden and coming home to the comfort of this flat were both lovely, relaxed parts of my otherwise strenuous week in very busy London.

Great property, great location, very comfortable and airy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Very close to Portabello Market, the tube station, and all of Notting Hill. Very fair pricing and comfortable. Wonderful experience with the property owner who couldn't have been easier to work with. Added features worth noting are the glass roofed eating area and the cute garden out the back. We would without a doubt recommend this VRBO and will try to use it again on our next trip to London.

  • 5 of 5

5-night stay Dec/Jan. Lovely flat, clean, well furnished, modern bathroom, well equipped kitchen and the books and music make it a home from home. The garden would be lovely in summer. Location is excellent with shops, restaurants, Portobello Rd and the tube station on the doorstep. Also convenient bus to city centre sights and shopping. The owner was very helpful and the arrangements for the key make the flat accessible whatever the time of arrival
