About Maurice

My wife and I are frequent travelers so we know very well what is important in a house : the location, the light, the comfort, the quietness, the accessibility. Passionate with music, architecture, design, art and gastronomy, we are keen to share our taste and experience with other travelers.

Maurice purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Maurice chose Westminster and West End

We love London. We have seen at least 150 flats before buying this one. A lot were terrible although quite expensive.

We fall in love with this one and the privacy that separate rooms offers. We love the quietness of the place which is really unusual in London, a very hectic and noisy city. The garden is fairly big compared to what we have seen.

What makes this apartment unique

Porchester is so ideally located that you can access everywhere very conveniently. Heathrow is at 15 minutes. All sorts of shops and restaurants are available day and nights the all week long, elegant or casual.

Charming and well located apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for 6 nights just before Christmas 2016. It is very well-maintained, comfortable, quiet and clean. Convenient access to the London subway is just a 5-10 minute walk away. A very short trip to and from Heathrow from Paddington station which is a short drive away or even walking distance depending on how much luggage you have. There is a large grocery store and some very good restaurants nearby. We particularly enjoyed Guste Remo, an Italian restaurant just a few blocks away with very good food and great service. The perfect place to unwind after a busy day exploring London.

Beautiful flat in charming Notting Hill

  • 5 of 5

Maurice - We loved our stay at Boutique Gardens! The flat is lovely and was very clean. Suwanna and Jonathan were very helpful with advice about navigating London. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and staples and the rooms most comfortable. Great location with interesting shops and restaurants nearby! We hope to return next year. Thank you, Meredyth

Lovely and cozy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this flat for three full weeks in November. Over that span of time we made good use of all the features, including the fully equipped kitchen, with laundry and dishwasher. After all the excitement and activity of a day out in London, coming home to 11 Porchester Square was a pleasure, warm, pleasant and very comfortable. The neighborhood, as others have said, has most every resource and convenience just a few minutes walk away. A highlight is Guste Remo, the charming Italian restaurant just around the corner. The route 23 bus (stop on Bishops Bridge Rd just in front of the Waitrose supermarket) became a favorite way to get to central London (Trafalgar Square, etc) - the Christmas lights on Oxford and Regent Streets were spectacular, particularly if you could land the front seats on the upper level. We enjoyed museums, the theatre and galleries, all within easy reach from the flat via the Tube and/or bus. We liked it so much, we hope to return someday and would certainly recommend it to others.

Authentic London Experience in Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at Maurice's lovely apartment at the end of October, and really enjoyed it. The apartment is exactly as pictured - beautifully decorated with a modern kitchen and bathroom, and good/fast wifi, which we really appreciated! The garden was very pretty, and we would have loved to sit out there in better weather, so I can only assume those who stay in summer will really enjoy that rare piece of outdoor real estate. The location was great - there were about 3 or 4 underground stations within an easy walk of the apartment, and we could get to any of the main tourist areas within a very quick ride. Also, the neighborhood itself was very interesting - very residential and local so we really felt like we were living in London and not just seeing tourist sites. There were also some pretty good restaurants within a quick walk of the apartment, as well as a very good grocery store. This is a great apartment to set up a base to see the city, and a far better value than any hotel room for the same price. We would love to stay in Maurice's apartment again when we return to London!

Charming Bayswater/Notting Hill Flat

  • 5 of 5

This ground level spacious flat is ideal for a couple. It is wonderfully located in a quite charming neighbourhood... yet all the London sights and attractions are readily accessible by foot, bus or Underground. We found the flat to be immaculate and well equipped. The walk-out to a private garden makes it truly special. Highly recommended.
