Our stunning garden flat is bright, stylish, quirky and comfortable. An oasis of calm just 5 mins walk from Notting Hill or Kensington High St, surrounded by leafy streets, cafés, a farmer's market & Portobello Road is very close. Wifi. Wash/Dryer. Bath/shower.
A wonderful airy and bright space with huge glass garden doors and a skylight. Visitors often gasp in admiration at the original details and generous scale of the flat. Overall feel of the place is very friendly.
There's a 4-poster bed, seating area has plush huge sofa, chaise lounge and hanging wicker egg-style chair. Antique leather desk is framed by the funky modern glass and wood staircase. Kitchen all on raised platform.
Outdoor patio gives lots of natural light - and you can help yourself to the fresh herbs growing here. Also perfect to sit out for morning coffee or a nice spot for reading.
Horse shoe on the front door was found while renovating - it dates back 150 years to when this was stables.
We had a writer couple living and working here for months. An RCA graduate student who was completing projects and entertaining at dinner parties. A businessman whose kids stayed over a couple of times a week. Several young families. An academic couple who regularly visit their grandchild nearby. It appeals to all sorts - romantic / family / professional.
Wifi. Washing machine & dryer. Bath and shower. Moroccan tiled private garden patio.
WE PROVIDE towels, bed linen, kitchenware, and basic initial cleaning products. The apartment is professionally cleaned before all guests arrive.
Interaction with guests
None necessary (you have a separate entrance). But easy access if desired or required. We have a 5-year-old and are happy to advise on childcare or London child entertainment. We can also tell you about local restaurants, bars, a spa, entertainment, or other amenities.
We provide a guest manual with info about the apartment & local resources, as well as guidebooks, maps and suggestions for tourists and locals.
Other things to note
Please note 4 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY - we prefer at least ONE WEEK.
NOT just a couple of days. Thanks.
We may occasionally need to pass through your space in order to access the house fuses & boiler room for repair or maintenance. We will check with you in advance.
No smoking indoors.
Be considerate of late night noise.
At departure, remember this is a home, so please leave it clean and strip your bed when you leave - or pay our cleaning lady extra to clean up after you.
