About the property

A beautiful flat within a short walk of Portobello Road and Royal Kensington Palace, the property occupies the first floor of a unique Victorian building on a quiet Kensington road.

The flat is very close to three Underground stations; Notting Hill Gate, Queensway and Bayswater. There is also a bus stop at the end of the street which gives quick and direct access to London hotspots like; Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square

The immediate area has a large choice of quality restaurants, cosy pubs and lively bars.

About Andrew

I run a small video production company in London, which was set up in 2003. I'm an editor by trade, but also enjoy dabbling in property development.

My wife, Isabelle, is a photographer and loves meeting people. She can also speak several different languages (including Dutch, French and Spanish), which proves very useful when we travel!

Andrew purchased this apartment in 2015

Great Apartment, Great Location, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in a great neighborhood in London. It was very clean, well maintained and equipped with all the essentials (especially the kitchen). It is not on a busy street and the building was surprisingly quiet.

Notting Hill is a great location with tons to do (Kensington Gardens, Portobello Market etc). The neighborhood has a lot of great restaurants/pubs. The underground station is pretty close (approx. 6 mins walk) which makes it easy to get around.

Andrew communicates very well. He reached out to us prior to our trip and on the day of our arrival. We enjoyed our stay at the apartment and had a great time in London. I would book this apartment again the next time we are in London.

Professionally Run In London

  • 5 of 5

Great flat in Notting Hill with good access to major public transit stations, attractions of the area, and several nice pubs plus a bevy of restaurants. The place was clean, well cared for, and in a really nice neighborhood. The shower was good and there was even a washer/dryer for us to make use of. However, it was our host who really made the place memorable. Andrew was communicative, very flexible and treats the rental/lodging as a professional business and not just a side internet venture. This isn't someone who happens to have a spare bedroom looking to make some quick cash as the host runs things more like an inn; most notably by including a full guide for the flat and its appliances (it was even more thorough than the info books you find in most fancy hotels!!). I suppose if it's your first time in London and all you want to do is see stuff like Big Ben, Westminster, etc. Notting Hill may be a wee bit out of the way, but if you want to see more of the true city while staying in a pleasant and quaint area, this is definitely recommended for you.

Lovely well thought out & appointed flat, spotlessly clean, light & bright feeling larger than it is

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend stay here & was greeted by a very helpful host, Andrew, who has great attention to detail and is very responsive to queries etc. Although the flat is not large it did not feel small at all due to high ceilings, carefull layout during the recent refurb and light colours used throughout. The flat had everything you might need in all the rooms and even has a bath which was an added bonus. Andrew had left a welcome basket which was great and showed me how everything worked etc. Its an easy walk from the flat to the tube, Kensington gardens, Royal Albert Hall and the lovely back streets of Notting Hill including Portabello Rd Market. It was actually only 20mins walk to Paddington station too. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Andrew 😀

Location and wonderful Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Andrews flat. The location was absolutely perfect! The flat itself is complete, impeccably clean and very comfortable. Great shower!! Walking distance to so many places made our first trip to London a real pleasure. The owner was so helpful to work with, made us feel very welcome and gave great tips on where to go and how best to get there. I hope I get the opportunity to go back to London and would rent the flat again in a heartbeat. Thank you Andrew!
