This really is a lovely house! The interiors are stunning and the master/ensuite bedroom in particular is one of the coolest we have ever stayed in!
The kitchen is beautiful and has all the appliances you could ever need to cook a nice dinner, while the attached dining area can easily accommodate 10 people. Great if you are organising a family get-together.
All the bedrooms are spacious and nicely and neutrally decorated. The living room/TV room is nice and cosy and the huge selection of DVDs is a nice bonus for those days when it's too wet to stay out and you are tired after a long day. We ended up spending more time in the kitchen/dining room rather than the living room. This has huge glass doors into the garden and half of its roof is made of glass, so it is very bright and pleasant.
Another bonus is the study/office area. I had to do a bit of work while I stayed in the house, so having this secluded space was god-sent!
We stayed during a very cold and wet week and never felt cold - we even had to switch off the radiators at times as the house was a bit too warm!
The area is great, as you get easy access to the centre through the nearby overground station (20-22 minutes with one change) or, if you prefer, buses. The house is around 2 miles away from Notting Hill and also about 2 miles away from Little Venice, both lovely spots to spend a sunny afternoon walking around. The overground station also means that getting to Richmond or Kew Gardens is also hassle-free. Finally, although the house is in the west, getting to the east-end bars and clubs is easy enough, as the overground will take you to Dalston in 30 minutes and Shoreditch in 40 minutes.
Last but not least, Nathan and Juliette are wonderful, exceptionally well organised and supportive. They replied to all emails promptly with good information and guidance. They left a detailed guide to using the house, useful post-it notes at all the appliances/fittings that needed them and a detailed guide to the surrounding area. Finally, they returned the deposit promptly, a week earlier than they had to.
