Westminster townhome description

A quiet historic family house - perfectly located for visitors to London, filled with art, books, music and antiques, fully equipped with everything you will need, and furnished for a comfortable stay.

If you’re new to vacation renting in London, you may be bewildered by all the places on offer at VRBO and the price differences between them. London values are determined by four things: location, space, comfort and services.

Location:
Notting Hill is one of the best districts of central London, not in the suburbs. In ten minutes, you can walk from our house to the famous Portobello antique market, to Kensington Gardens, or to any one of four Tube stations and fifteen bus stops. Time Out lists 97 restaurants within one mile of our postcode (zip code), and people come to this neighborhood from all over London to visit the fashionable antique dealers and designer clothes stores nearby. You can stroll from here across the Royal Parks to Buckingham Palace, the South Kensington museums, and Trafalgar Square. Yet our street is a quiet cul-de-sac of 19th century houses, with a pretty public garden at the end and no through traffic. Our web site (see link at bottom of page) has a large-scale Google map, and more details about our location, including public transport.

Space:
When you evaluate houses on VRBO, it's important to look much more closely than the headline number of people the place is supposed to sleep. Our house has over 3,100 square feet of space. Like other historic buildings from the 1800s, it has a sense of coolness, light and space. The ceilings on the main floors are over 10ft high. In addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms listed, the house has a big kitchen with a dining table seating eight; two sitting-rooms (each with a pair of high sash windows); a playroom; gardens at the front and back with climbing frame; two barbecues; and an outdoor dining table and benches for six. With its two double and three further bedrooms, three bathrooms and a cloakroom, it can sleep a total of four adults and four children in beds, and one more can sleep comfortably on a pull-out sofa. Even the front door is over four feet wide. Our web site (see link at foot of page) offers a room-by-room tour.

Comfort:
Combining comfortable sofas, halogen lighting, Oriental rugs and East Asian antiques, the house is painted mostly white, and hung with paintings, drawings and prints. It has light wooden flooring in the main rooms and master bedroom, with second double bedroom floored with sea-grass matting. Bathrooms, often a weak point in London houses, are spacious and well equipped with good lighting, power showers, and smart new white fixtures. We provide fluffy white towels, fine toiletries, cotton sheets and quilts. Our housekeeper will welcome you on your arrival, visit Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to keep the house clean and do your personal laundry, and will change the linens and clean up when you leave. The entire house is non-smoking. See our web site (link below) for more about accommodation and facilities.

Services:
Included in the rental cost are free broadband, use of an internet-connected PC, an hour of free calls back to the US, and a phone number your friends and family can use, champagne in the fridge awaiting your arrival, home cinema using our DVD projector and stereo sound system, and the use of all store-cupboard essentials and consumables in the well-equipped kitchen. Our housekeeper will clean and change linens and towels as needed, and you are welcome to sample our thousands of books, and our extensive collections of CDs and movies. There is no hidden cleaning fee or charge for preparing the house. We can also help arrange cars to pick you up from the airport, cell phones to keep in touch with each other during your visit, and the services of a private chef.

We usually rent for full weeks, Saturday to Saturday. To check availability dates, please click on the CALENDAR next to the EMAIL button below. To check which date are high and low season, and see details of deposits, etc, please follow the link below to our web site.
