Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kensington

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This traditional English flat is housed in a beautiful white period townhouse in Notting Hill and overlooks a charming garden square.

With a working fireplace and impressive oak furniture, the Portobello has a warm and inviting atmosphere. The living room is filled with light from tall windows making it an utterly delightful place to be.

The Portobello benefits from a central location and good transport links making it the perfect base for your London holiday.

This flat is situated on a pretty, private garden square in Notting Hill Gate. It is extremely quiet because there is almost no traffic, even though it is only moments from bustling Portobello Market.

This colourful, exciting area has many pubs, restaurants and trendy cafes. You will find traditional fish & chip shops alongside a huge variety of ethnic food. If you want to update your wardrobe, you can find the latest trends on the market stalls or browse in upscale boutiques.

Take a 10 minute stroll and you will be in the middle of leafy, green Kensington Gardens. Kensington Palace, home to generations of British Royals, is located within the park. A quick tube ride and you will be in the West End with its theatres, restaurants and glittering shops.

About Carl and Liz Risberg

Hello. We decided to buy this flat on St. Stephens Gardens because of it's unique location on a private garden square in Notting Hill Gate. It's a lovely flat and has become one of our best rental flats in London. Families with teens love it because of the two bathrooms and spacious living area throughout the flat. We live in London and such are available to our guests 24/7. Two of our girls go to school in London and the oldest is taking her Masters in business in Pamplona, Spain.

Carl and Liz Risberg purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Carl and Liz Risberg chose Kensington

We chose to buy this particular flat because it was in Notting Hill Gate which is a very trendy area of London. Hollywood has filmed many movies in this area. The Portobello Market is less than 5 minutes away. The private garden square just outside the front door is lovely and can be used by our guests. It also has a play area for smaller children. The buses run 24/7 only one minute away.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is quite large and spacious. It has a Victorian working gas fireplace in the living room. This flat is on the ground floor so there are no steps to maneuver. The garden square is lovely in the Spring and summer, our guests are more than welcome to use it. There are many trendy restaurants and pubs close by so one can walk to and from the restaurants. The buses are moments away which go in every direction of London. Notting Hill Gate Tube Station is less than 10 minutes walk. The Portobello Market is less than 5 minutes away. The streets are lined with handsome old Victorian period buildings.

Spring Break in London

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 children, age 21 and 16 stayed here in April and found flat to be very comfortable and clean. The location was great-lovely area, quiet, walking distance to Portobello Market. Bus and tube very accessable. Loved the Italian restaurant right across the street, and The Cow pub around the corner. Especially liked having food stocked in our flat- a service that was offered. However, extra toilet paper and laundry soap not included, so buy or bring your own. The owners were very welcoming and prompt with answers to e-mails. Only downfall was dealing with money exchange: rate, wire transfer from US bank, finalizing payments. That was a real test of patience-probably on both sides. Heads up: be certain you know entire fee before signing rental agreement. Aside from that, the entire stay was comfortable and very enjoyable with owners being more than accomodating.

Weekend stay at the Portobello

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend at the Portobello, using it as a home base for our sight-seeing activities before having to attend a week-long meeting in London. It's a good location on a quiet street. The house itself was fine, although we didn't spend much time there. It's not a luxury home but the beds were comfortable and the people who rent it were very responsive. If you're looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced flat, this is a good choice.

Birthday treat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Stephens Gardens. Location was ideal, quiet and peaceful yet very handy for tube stations and it felt very safe. Apartment was tastefully appointed and with two bathrooms ideal for our party. Good Wi-fi reception was a bonus. Would recommend and hopefully we will return.

OUR WEEK IN LONDON

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Notting Hill. Liz and Carl as well as their employees were most helpful and welcoming. Several buses run from the end of the street to Notting Hill Gate Tube Station from which point the Central ,Circle or District lines or buses give easy access to all points in London. The flat is comfortable, clean, quiet, well-equipped and in a very safe area of London with pubs and restaurants within walking distance. There is a playground area across the street for families with young children. We were all senior citizens and would have no hesitation in renting it again on our next visit to London or recommending it to future visitors.
