About the property

2 bedrooms, sleeps 5, separate kitchen and living room

A beautiful flat in the heart of historic and fashionable Hampstead Village, a neighbourhood associated with many artists, writers and celebrities. The flat is on the first floor up one flight of communal stairs, above a shop in a landmark period building with two other apartments in the building. The flat has beautiful, original fireplaces and wooden floors in the living areas, while the two bedrooms are carpeted. The master bedroom has a double bed and a closet. The second bedroom has two single beds, and one can be stored under the other if only one is needed. Please note that if both beds are used, they take up most of the space in the room and there is currently no storage. The large living room has a double sofa bed which expands the sleeping options.

The look of flat is modern, uncluttered and stylish. There are two comfortable sofas (one of which is also the sofa-bed) and leather chair in the spacious living room, and TV. The kitchen has a dining table and seating for six. It is fully fitted and well equipped with everything you might need to cook during your stay, and both regular and microwave ovens and a dishwasher. A washing machine/tumble dryer is also available in the flat for your use, as is high speed wi-fi internet. All bed linens and towels are provided.

The flat has wooden floors and large sash windows giving it lots of light and a great view onto the charming buzzy Hampstead High Street with its up-market shops, restaurants, patisseries and pubs. The view through the front windows onto the High Street is excellent for people watching! This is a very safe neighbourhood and the flat is one minute's walk to Hampstead Underground station from where you can be in Camden Town in under 10 minutes, and central London's West End in around 15-20 minutes. There are also bus connections right outside your front door to St Paul's in the City (the financial district). It is less than 10 minutes' walk from beautiful Hampstead Heath, London's largest wild open green space for fantastic walks, bathing in natural ponds (open all year round for the very brave) or an open air swimming pool at Parliament Hill, and breathtaking views across London. Hampstead is a very upmarket and select part of London which manages to be both villagey and charming, but at the same time cosmopolitan and trendy. If you want to step out of the front door into the heart of Hampstead and all it has to offer, then you really cannot better this location and flat.

I live nearby and am always on hand for any problems that I can help with or local advice I can offer. I can also arrange a driver to bring you to and from your airport, mid-stay cleaning, and babysitting with an excellent babysitter, all payable locally.

I am happy to be flexible about check in and check out times, wherever possible, if there is no other booking that day. Late check-ins -after 9pm during the week, and after 7pm at weekends (Friday - Sunday) - will be subject to a small additional fee. Please let me know at the time of booking if you plan to check in late.

Please note, the flat does not have a parking space, and parking long-term is problematic in Hampstead. We do not recommend you rent a car during your stay here - but a number of local driveways are rented privately on a daily basis and I can provide details if needed.

Very well equipped flat steps away from tube

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic flat! Gabrielle, the owner, is very kind and went above and beyond ensuring our stay was comfortable. This was the best equipped VRBO I have every stayed in. Any and all appliances, toiletries, etc you could possibly need are here. About a 30 second walk from Hampstead tube station allows for very convenient travel. Location itself quite nice too, steps away from a Tesco express and plenty of good restaurants and pubs. Quiet at night. If only all VRBOs were this good! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Absolutely fabulous stay in a great village.

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and spotless apartment does not disappoint from the moment you enter. Comfortable lounges with lovely views across to the period buildings. Gabrielle is a charming and helpful hostess who made us feel very welcome. Generously stocked with both cooking condiments, and bathroom products, this place saves the tourist the trouble of stocking up on surplus travel items. Surprisingly quiet with the double glazing on all windows and the bedrooms out the back are a real bonus. Neighbours were quiet and needless to say, good restaurants and cafes abound. This place is a real treat and we highly recommend it.

Fantastic flat in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a little more than a week here and loved every minute of it. Gabrielle graciously arranged for an early arrival, even though she herself was away on holiday. She even took the time to keep in touch during our stay. The flat is exactly as shown, with a spacious kitchen and front room, and worthy of the other excellent comments. The street noise was minimal, even as we had the front windows open with the nice weather. As others mentioned, the bedrooms are at the rear of the flat and are very quiet. The location is perfect with the bus stop is right outside the front door and the Tube station a quick walk up the street. And, of course, we loved the high street. Would definitely stay here again and encourage others to do so!

Lovely property in great location

  • 4 of 5

Cute 2-bed flat only a minute's walk from Hampstead tube, and very close to beautiful Hampstead Heath. Very much enjoyed our two-week stay and the host was incredibly helpful. On the high street, so slightly noisy at night if you don't close the windows (quiet if you do, as there are double windows). Would love to stay again.

Chic Flat in Hampstead

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in Gabrielle's flat. There was plenty of space for the 4 of us. The flat was clean and tidy...especially the kitchen and bathroom. The flat is in a great location..easy access via London Underground to central London. We also enjoyed 3 local restaurants in Hampstead. We enjoyed the crepes right across the street! Gabrielle was generous to let us into the place early, as we arrived in the early morning from the states. Highly recommend.

Lovely, lovely flat, perfectly situated to enjoy London

  • 5 of 5

Delightful stay for one week in this charming flat in picturesque Hampstead. Flat is very comfortable and well-equipped, completely as advertised, including the quiet bedrooms (with comfortable beds) away from the street. Gabrielle was very responsive and accommodating and we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, biscuits, milk and juice. The location very close to the Hampstead tube stop was convenient for exploring central London, and after spending the day in busy, congested central London, we loved returning to the neighborhood feeling of Hampstead, still lively but peaceful. Not to be missed in Hampstead are the Flask and Holly Bush pubs, the creperie stand across from the flat on the High Street, cream tea at The Buttery Cafe, and takeaway wood-fired pizza from L'Antica. Also be sure to spend time exploring Hampstead, it's quite beautiful. I would stay at this flat again in a heartbeat and intend to return the next time I come to London!
