Charming little home, cozy and convenient
We stayed here for about 10 days - it is so very convenient, only a couple of minutes from the tube stop, so we were able to get into the city easily and quickly. The apt. is so nicely decorated, and the kitchen is well appointed, too.
Joan was a wonderful tenant and left the place immaculate. I'm so glad that the apartment lived up to her expectations.
A charming place for a get away
The apartment is plenty big for two people. Any more and it will get crowded fast. Everything is comfy, artsy, shabby chic. The kitchen is well equipped. The bed and s firm and comfortable. The bathroom has sufficient counter space and water pressure. The tub is long enough to really relax into it.
The garden was charming even during chilly February. The entry is a little tricky with narrow, steep stairs that should be a serious consideration for older or physically challenged guests.
The area has good amenities and it is super easy to catch a cab or hop on the Tube. The apartment is on the edge of Nottinghill and a bit of a transitional area. We felt totally safe at all times. That said, there was a fight on the street late Saturday night and the police were right out front with lights flashing for 30 minutes as the searched for the combatants.
Portobello Road is half a block away which made for excellent shopping with ease of bring arm loads of treasures back to the apartment.
We would absolutely stay here again. Oh, and Lorna is great to work with.
Very glad that my visitor enjoyed his stay - another satified holidaymaker.
Lovely Flat in Notting Hill/North Kensington
We would highly recommend Lorna’s apartment while staying in London. We arrived to find a lovely welcome note from Lorna, the heat had been turned on and was just right, there was fresh milk in the frig, and tea and coffee were available for brewing. The apartment was filled with books, music, art, and comfortable furniture. We felt right at home. The kitchen is adequately stocked for all your cooking needs, including a washer/dry and dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, and a microwave. The electric teakettle made brewing tea and coffee easy in the morning. The bathroom has a lovely shower and a separate deep tub for soaking those tired muscles after a long day of walking around the city! Plenty of plush towels are provided. My favorite room was the dining room – it felt as if I were sitting in the garden even though I was inside. The apartment is quiet despite it’s proximity to a busy road. There are several grocery stores (Tesco and Sainsbury) and restaurants within walking distance. Portobello Road Market is only a block away. The neighborhood is very walkable. The Tube station (Ladbroke Grove) and bus stop (52, 452) are 1-2 short blocks away. We used the Underground to/from Heathrow and the trip takes less than an hour with only 1 transfer. We recommend the 7-day Oyster Card with unlimited travel. We would highly recommend this little gem in Notting Hill/North Kensington and would stay here again without hesitation.
So glad that the holidaymakers enjoyed their stay and clearly loved the apartment. It is everything they say it is and people can book with confidence.
Charming and cosy
Good communication with Lorna. Close to the tube
A model tenant could not have been better.
