Overview

About the property

Live the real Notting Hill lifestyle. Just off the famous Portobello Road in the heart of Notting Hill this is a terrific, funky pad from which to explore one of London's grooviest districts. It is only four minutes away from Ladbroke Grove tube station which connects you to the rest of London and there is a 24 hour bus stop to the West End right out the door.

Furnished with twentieth century antique furniture throughout, the apartment has double height ceilings and huge windows front and rear which means it floods with natural light. There is a completely separate raised double mezzanine sleeping area. (NB this is accessed by climbing 5 vertical steps so if you have any mobility issues please check with me for suitability) The kitchen is brilliantly equipped with a six ring stove, microwave oven, dishwasher and washer. There is super fast wifi and satellite TV and sound system with docking for your ipod so you can play own tunes. There is also a sofa bed in the living so a third person can be accommodated.

Close by are some of the best bars, restaurants and shopping that London has to offer. Buy fresh produce on the daily food market or vintage clothes in the numerous small boutiques. Browse the endless antique and bric-a-brac stalls which stretch from Golbourne Road to Notting Hill Gate at weekends. Max out your credit card at the many designer shops on nearby Westbourne Grove, where you will find branches of Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Joseph and numerous other high end retailers. The apartment is also within walking distance of Europe's biggest indoor shopping mall Westfield. And if all that doesn't tire you out the beautiful Holland Park and Hyde Parks are both within walking distance. There's also a great gym on the next street. A rack of bikes for hire, supplied by the London Cycle hire scheme, are one minute from the door!

Oh and just in case you fancy a cosy romantic night in, the apartment comes with its very own copy of the sound track to the film Notting Hill!

Notting Hill is a vibrant, cosmopolitan district. It has fantastic restaurants, shops, vintage shops and the world famous Portobello market. The apartment is on a street which leads directly onto Portobello Road so you will be right in the heart of it all.

The apartment is a four minute walk from Ladbroke Grove tube station. Buses to the West End stop just round the corner from the apartment and run 24 hours a day.

You will have sole use of the entire apartment for the duration of your stay.

It's vibrant, cosmopolitan, architecturally stunning, and has the historic market on Portobello Road!

Ladbroke Grove Tube station is a 4 minute walk away. 24 Hour bus to the West End goes from a stop a minute away.

My Calendar is up to date so please if it says dates are available then they are. If you want to know the total cost of your stay simply go through the booking process and you will find out - at that stage you can always decide not to book.

NB the mezzanine sleeping pod is accessed via five vertical steps. Please ask before booking if you have mobility issues.

Fabulous Funky Notting Hill Flat

  • 5 of 5

If your a hip and happening couple, single or even small family.

Then this is your Notting Hill hotspot. Great location, fabulous amenities, a stones throw from funky, hip and hot Portobello Road. Fantastic period flat in a quiet tree lined neighbourhood, where you can kick back and enjoy the city of London like a local.

We had a fantastic time and enjoyed our stay in this beautiful flat, truly.

One of a great many trips we've made to London and definitely one of the best.

You'll love it!

An amazing little gem in an awesome neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect flat for a few days in London. The location is ideal. It is very near multiple forms of transportation (Tube, buses) and it takes 15 minutes to get downtown. The neighborhood is quiet and bohemian. Portobello Road is nearby featuring great restaurants and shops. There is a grocery around the corner near the Tube stop to grab what you need. The flat's kitchen is adorable. There is a sleeping loft and a couch that opens open into a serviceable bed. The climb is steep up to the loft, but any able-bodied person could handle it.

My teenage daughter and I stayed for 5 nights in June. It was perfect for our needs. We loved walking around the neighborhood and dining at the nearby restaurants. The instructions for getting in and out of the flat were perfect. The tile work in the foyer is lovely and the decorations are very whimsical. The bathroom shower is great -- albeit small -- but that is to be expected in a flat.

Check out the Portobello street market -- a must. Also, we dined at The Chipping Forecast which was quite good and reasonably priced.

We'd definitely stay again. 5 stars.

Fabulous break in groovy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tim’s apartment. It’s brilliantly located on a lovely street just off the famous Portobello Road market and just four minutes from the tube station so you can get anywhere in London. The apartment has everything you need and it’s very stylish with a great shower. We loved the loft bed, it was so unique and cozy up there. Thanks Tim, we’ll be back for sure.

Beware Misleading Description

  • 2 of 5

This flat was advertised as a one bedroom, but it was only a studio with one room. It said it sleeps four. It can only hold two people at the most and they better like being very cozy. It says there is a separate raised sleeping area. What that means is you must hoist yourself up shelves (not even steps or a ladder) while using grab bars. We considered this too dangerous. The space up there just under the ceiling is like being in a coffin. The ad said a sofa bed. It's a very hard futon. One of us had to put cushions on the floor to make a camp bed. The ad said a clothes dryer. Not true. The only two good things we can say is we liked the quiet and the location. If this place had been honestly advertised I would not have rented it because it was not adequate for us, and we are not fussy people! We paid a lot of money to sleep on a futon as hard as a board and on the floor. This is my first and only bad experience with VRBO.

Unique apt in Cambridge Gardens!

  • 5 of 5

Very unique apt in the Cambridge garden- Notting Hill area! We loved the location - very close to the underground station. It’s also convenient for grabbing local produce and groceries at the corner market. I travelled with my 13 year old daughter and she loved the climb in the loft every night. Would highly recommend for 2 people to stay comfortably. Would definitely rent again!

Quirky & Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. It was super easy to get into the centre of London with just a 5min walk to the nearest Tube station. Portobello Rd shops & restaurants as well as supermarkets are all very close, no car required.

The flat itself is very compact & always lovely & warm to come home to, as we had cold weather during our stay. The stove/ oven is amazing, it was great to have a dishwasher & washing machine too.

The loft bed is a little tricky at first but we soon got used to it.

A fun & comfortable home away from home!
