Beautiful duplex on a lovely quiet street in London's fashionable Notting Hill!

Notting Hill is an area in West London, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The area is most well-known for Portobello Market (on Portobello Road, unsurprisingly), which runs every day except Sundays, and the Notting Hill Carnival, held every year on the last weekend in August.

Two of my favourite smaller London museums are both within walking distance of Notting Hill. Leighton House and Linley Sambourne House are excellent examples of everyday life in the 1890's in London. Any fan of the Victorian Aesthetics Movement in art/books/lifestyle should make one of these museums a must visit!!!

Of course, we couldn't talk about Notting Hill without mentioning the film and the BLUE DOOR Released in 1999 and starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, the film did much to promote and raise interest in the area.It was the reason so many shops relocated here and why other long standing ones had to close as the area became more expensive.It really has changed so much in the last 20 years.The area has so many shops and it's a foodie heaven with delis,coffee shops,tea rooms galore!

About the Flat: The flat offers our guests plenty of space. The fact that it's split level allows a spacious environment to relax in.The kitchen is fully stocked with all the bits and pieces you'll need to ensure that cooking here will be a delight! Please take the shopping trolley out and stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables for your stay. The market is the place to head for this. There are also some excellent deli's within a few minutes walk. The closest large supermarket is 5 minutes away.

After a day out shopping one can simply enjoy the garden and a glass of wine and unwind.

The flat also has a power shower within a roomy bathroom.

Notting Hill is a great place to visit, from its cafes and restaurants, its market and boutique shops, to its many pubs and bars. It holds much in the way of entertainment, whatever your interest - be it shopping, dining, film, drinking, clubbing or more!

Things to do: Notting Hill still has three excellent independent cinemas and I would suggest visiting at least one of them on your visit. The Electric Cinema is closet to the flat and is a must see for any film lover.

If you're a lover of music than a visit to the original Rough Trade shop on nearby Talbot Road is a must see! You'll find a vast array of recorded music and their walls of plastered with posters/handbills from the past 50 years of music in London.If Jazz is more up your street than a trip to Honest Jon's on Portobello Road.

Books Books Books...yes this area still has some independent shops left. I mentioned that the Travel Bookshop is up for sale..but still trading(This is due to close Sept/2011)(now closed Dec 11). There's the excellent Books For Cooks on Blenheim Cres. Yes, it's all about food here and they also have special cookery evenings and plenty of authors signing their latest cookbook.

One can really walk to several places of interest. I walked the entire way into the West End last week...passing several wonderful attractions. The walk did take about one hour and 10 minutes but on a lovely day it made us realise why we love London so much! You can walk via Hyde Park and pass the Royal Albert Hall and the Albert Memorial...and head up to Wellington Arch and straight down Piccadilly into Soho/Covent Garden.One needs to remember to wear comfortable shoes though!

If you're booking during the summer season than an open air concert should be on the list of things to do. The flat is very close to Holland Park where one can listen and see Opera in the Park. This park is a pure delight...not as big as the other Royal Parks but it has a lovely Japanese Garden...not to mention the Peacocks and other wildlife.

PLEASE NOTE-WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR CALENDAR UP TO DATE.WE ALSO HAVE OTHER FLATS THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

Hello! My name is James and I manage this property for my friend Cynthia.

The short stroll to the world famous Portobello Market is one of the numerous highlights of staying in Notting Hill.There are numerous cafes and restaurants just a short walk from the flat that cover all tastes and budgets.Every Friday and Saturday walk 4 mins from the flat and browse the stalls of the markets selling everything from vintage clothing,antiques,records,books and just about anything else one can think of.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Charlene and James,





Thanks for your e-mail.

We are now back in Sweden. The trip home was ok, but we had some unexpected stops on the way to Gatwick so we were very late, but finally managed to catch the plane in time.





We had a great stay at your flat and enjoyed our London holiday very much. After being in London City for many hours we apreciated to get "home" and walk the peaceful streets down to your flat. The location couldn´t be better and the flat was really great!



Unfortunately we didn´t get the oportunity to visit your record store. We save that for next time.

We would be happy to come back again someday to live in your nice flat.





Kind regards,





Björn with family

Great location, lovely property, fab service.

  • 5 of 5

Really good location for exploring locally but also very handy for getting right into the centre too. The kids loved it (especially the pink house down the road). Property was really spacious and well equipped and Benedicte the lady who met us was really friendly and accommodating and even posted back my little girls teddy she'd managed to drop behind the bed! Would definitely recommend for either families or not as it would work well for both due to being on a surprisingly quiet street but very close to busier ones.

Great location, lots of rooms and beds for large families/groups

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home, convenient location for shopping and transit. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each, plus a downstairs bedroom with queen bed. It's so nice to have all the beds for larger families. The upper bedroom fronting the street can be a bit noisy, so put your heavy sleepers or earplug wearers in that one. Washer and dryer is great for traveling light. We cooked meals in, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Greeter Benedicte was friendly and very personable, plus great communication with the owners. Everything was clean and tidy, the towels and linens smelled great too! Plenty of travel books available in the home.

Great location for exploring london.

  • 3 of 5

It provided the perfect spot from which to explore, close to public transport links and the vibrancy of the local area yet in a quiter residential street. Although the bedrooms provided enough space for 6 adults, we did feel the living area was a little smaller than expected with limited seating/dining for everyone.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location in Notting Hill. Portobello Road, with its shops and street market, is only a block away. It's also only a short walk to a couple of the Tube lines, so a good launching pad to explore the city. The flat itself had enough room to cmfortably sleep our family of five. And having a usable kitchen and table allowed us to eat a few meals in, which saves a lot of money in London.

Brian and Lindy, who were our greeters, were extremely kind and helpful. When we come back to London we will definitely try to stay at this flat again!

Great Location!

I stayed here with three of my daughters and we had a lovely time. The apartment was a fine size and it was in a great location. We loved the outdoor market just a few blocks away. We would stay there again!
