1 double bed
This apartment is perfect for your London get-a-way, right in the heart of West London, it has fantastic transport links into central London as well as great local gems close to home.
The ground floor apartment will feel like your own little luxury pad, with grand 13ft high ceilings, big bay windows and plenty of natural light. The living room overlooks a lovely green garden and you even have your own outdoor terrace with seating for some breakfast in the sunshine, that is if you can pry yourself out of the comfy bed in the morning, with its fresh white 100% cotton linen.
Located just a 4 min walk from Westbourne Grove Station, you can lead the life of the Notting Hill set, enjoying the lovely local cafes, bars and restaurants and of course the grand daddy of all London markets- the Portobello Road! Notting Hill is home to the famous carnival, perhaps this is the perfect spot for you to rest your weary head after all of the excitement!
The bathroom is brand new and has a great shower and bath. Shampoo and shower gel will be provided along with white fluffy towels to snuggle up in after. Good news ladies (and perhaps some lads) - I have borrowed a hair dryer so you don't have to carry around your own.
The kitchen is very well equipped with an oven and cooker, dishwasher and all the utensils you need to cook up a storm.
Last but not least, there is a spacious terrace with a table, seating and lighting.
I hope you enjoy my home as much as I enjoy living here.
The entire apartment is available to guests.
Interaction with guests
My friends at Hostmaker are looking after my home while I am away.
The apartment is just off Portobello Road which by any measure if London's coolest and most enduring open air market. Known for its antiques, you can buy any number of knickknacks from there including some amazing vintage records.
After exhausting yourself walking up and down the market, pop into one of the lovely restaurants and pubs! The Cow is one of my favourites in the area so is Churchill Arms. Both serve great food and a nice selection of ales.
If you are looking for some live music action, the Mau Mau is the place to go to. It is unpretentious and doesn't look much from the outside but the last time I was there, I swear the band was the next Destiny's Child!
For more upmarket, date night type cocktails, try out Beach Blanket Babylon. It is hip and fully of pretty people on most nights.
For a relaxed cafe experience, stroll down to Westbourne Grove (not the station) and try some salads at Ottolenghi and Cafe 202. There are loads of lovely shops here!
There are three tube stations very nearby. Westbourne Park and Ladbroke Grove (Hammersmith and City / Circle Line) are 4 and 6 mins away respectively, Notting Hill Gate (Central / District Line) is less than 15 mins away.
There are also plenty of buses in the area, which are a great way of travelling if you like to have a peek at your surroundings as you travel.
A great local tip is to download the Citymapper app. This free app will plan your journey for you efficiently and quickly. It gives you a variety of different transport options such as bike, rail, tube and Uber taxi. It will also take you step by step through your journey as you travel and notify you when you are nearing your destination.Get the full listing »
