About Marina Mazur

I have been running holiday rentals for over 9 years. It's been a great experience and our homes have hosted many wonderful travelers throughout the years. Through this long experience, I have the benefit of knowing what works and what does not, and we have a fine-tuned system that makes happy, satisified guests. I am always on the lookout to improve. My style of hosting can be defined as highly responsive with a thoroughness of information during pre-arrival, stay and post stay.

Italy is my numero uno travel destination - I am half Italian, I also love California - I grew up in Santa Barbara, I love to cook and I have teenage son. When I am traveling, I like to seek 'off the tourist track' places to experience a more authentic experience.

Marina Mazur purchased this house in 2008

Why Marina Mazur chose North Kensington

I love Notting Hill. There’s a reason why so many films are set in here. The neighborhood’s cobblestoned streets weave through scrunched alleyways and richly furnished Victorian townhomes, and its stylish shops and passionate antique vendors satiate design-driven appetites: Notting Hill’s famed Portobello Road Market is a rummager’s delight. Celebrated as much for its idyllic streetscapes as it is for its cafe lifestyle and ephemeral fancies, it’s easy to understand Notting Hill's cinematic celebrity.

A 10-minute walk will take guests into the fashionable, hip areas of Portobello Road, and Golbourne Road markets. Adjacent Westbourne Grove boasts high- end designer shopping.

The home backs onto Kensington Memorial Park affording lovely open sky views and wide open space. The park has tennis courts and a fantastic kids playground.

What makes this house unique

I do provide a series of pre-arrival pdf's detailing how to get to the home from the major airports, what to expect in the home and other important transit info to/from the home to planning your sightseeing.

Open Plan loft style lateral ground floor is pretty unique in London. Please view floor plan in the photographs to see the layout.

Hotel quality beds/linen and towels and fully equipped for a most comfortable stay.

Adjacent park and playground is a huge bonus for kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The loft house provided a perfect escape at Christmas time, offering an ideal home away from home for our 8 night stay. Eclectic design and a chef's kitchen, with fantastic delicatessens and other produce nearby, resulted in a warm, welcoming, relaxing and culinary experience. Close enough to London but with a small neighbourhood feel, the location and transport options were ideal for our family's needs.

Wonderful London Stay in this Fantastic Loft House

  • 5 of 5

Great space. Perfect for families. We are a family of 5 and the size was perfect. Clean, stylish, comfortable, much attention to detail - everything a family could need and more. Great location, walking distance to many shops, markets and restaurants in the Portobello area. Easy transportation to sites in London proper. We would highly recommend this Loft.

Loved Staying at This Beautiful Flat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great stay at Marina's Notting Hill flat. We loved the location and the park next door was great for our two kids, who loved spending time there at the end of each day. The flat is beautiful, super clean, light and bright and homey. It is well equipped with everything needed and Marina was very helpful, responsive and accommodating in helping to ensure a great stay. Would love to stay here again someday the next time we visit London. Highly recommend!

Business travel done right!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home as a place where my colleagues and I could have a comfortable stay during our brief work trip to London - it was definitely the right choice! The home was spacious and suited our needs just right. Marina was attentive, responded very quickly to any questions and was proactive in planning the meet up for the hand-off of the keys. Barbara was over and hour late but the flight was delayed so it caused some issues getting access to the house. The area the home was in was very safe and quiet.

Successful Christmas and New Year Family Gathering in London

  • 5 of 5

We came to London to spend Christmas with our daughter and her husband, and attend their wedding, and to christen our granddaughter, their firstborn - so it was a an action packed 2 weeks. Myself, my husband, our son and further son and wife all stayed at Sunswept Loft house. The home was a lovely backdrop to all our family gatherings, Christmas day and lunch replete with tree and ornaments (we had originally intended to stay in their new home close by, but it was delayed with building works). The house is very private and quiet, it felt like being in the country backing up onto the park outside, with open views and wonderful natural winter light streaming in through the windows. The bedrooms were cosy, with top quality linen and thick white towels and comfortable beds to ensure a good nights sleep. The kitchen is well equipped, we cooked for 12 for Christmas lunch. The two seating areas provided us with lots of space to spread out, with 12 in the house on Christmas day, there was plenty of room in the large open plan downstairs. Our host was very attentive and ensured we had all that we needed. The home is spotless and very well cared for. It is an elegant home and thus treated with care as the furniture and furnishing are all of a high standard. Notting Hill, which we knew well, is very vibrant and full of wonderful places to eat out and shop. A great experience.

Charming loft as photos and great to be next to a park

  • 3 of 5

Marina's home is lovely! We had a nice week in london with our 2 children! The kitchen especially is so well equipped.

The neighbourhood is very charming and just situated right next not even a few minutes walk to the Kensington memorial park.

There are also some feedbacks regarding this lovely home:

- the home is very tastefully decorated as it is the owners' primary home. There are many vintage and expensive furnitures and sensitive material use around the house in different areas and we have to constantly remind our young children to stay away.

- Although is all friendly reminder notes around the house but at the same time, we feel like we have to take care of the house rather than to enjoy the house we rent.

- the bedrooms are all upstairs and the roof ceiling is angle and very low, although the bedrooms are very nice and clean, is not too comfortable to bend down the head to go into bed. It could get very hot in the summer under the low ceiling, even with fan on.

- The location of the home from nearest tube station is about 15 mins walk and not major tube line! Therefore the transportation access is not as convenient if one likes to explore other areas during the day (but there is direct parking and bus route right Infront of the home)

Marina is a very lovely lady and very helpful! The home is spotless cleaned and she made great attention to details! But If to rent out to family, may be not too suitable for young kids below 8 years old as we always have to keep an eye on them not to touch or be in certain areas. This is a vacation home and would be nice to be more carefree and relax.

Owner's Response: We did enjoy having the lovely Joyce and her immaculate family stay in our home, it is unfortunate her stay coincided with a heatwave - a rare occurrence in London. The bedrooms are in the eaves and even with fans, it was not ideal. Fortunately it only lasted for 2 days.
