This gorgeous, sun filled property sits in a quiet cul-de-sac behind A beautiful communal garden. The interior is a great combination of period cottage features and sleek modern fittings and has a wonderfully child friendly design. With 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this property is perfectly suited for families large and small.

The loft bedroom is a large space with en-suite shower room and bunk beds and comfortably sleeps 2 children and 2 adults. Outside the house is the enclosed communal garden which is open to guests all year round and is a lovely place to relax and let the kids run free (without having to worry about traffic).

There is a large play house in the patio along with some toys and bikes for the little ones. If extra space is needed, there is always the larger St Marks Park which is just 5 minutes walk away. This park has some amazing activities and play areas which will keep the little ones busy for hours. There is also an ultra modern water play-park with changing facilities which is open spring and summer.

A short walk from the property lies Goldborne Road and Portobello Road leading to Notting Hill Gate, an are packed with wonderful boutique shops, and antiques stalls not to mention the vast array of coffee houses, bars and restaurants.

Reviews of this property

NO RENTING THIS APARTMENT!!! The host doesn't tell the truth in the announcement. He wasn't concerned about their guests at all. He promised that the house was for 8 guests and had oven, dishwasher and internet, but they didn't work.

Unfortunately, the problems started when we arrived at the airport where we had held in passport control for an hour due to a computer problem. We explained to Rowan what happened and he said he would wait until we got. But later, he said he had left the keys hidden in the garden and come the next day to explain the functioning of the facilities. Our surprise came when we came into the house and we found that there were only four beds (three singles and a king) and we were seven adults. So we went to see how sofa beds were and the surprise was even greater since none of them had one mattress and was unable. For this reason, two of us had to sleep on the floor and others shared bed. However, this was not the only incident: the oven did not work (and we were forced to throw away the meal of the day), the dishwasher was broken, the room controller radiator was loose and smelled heavily of gas, the host did not provide us the password for the WIFI network, the hot water faucet basin of the first floor was broken, etc..

Therefore, I sent a text message to the host but neither phoned nor presented in the following days. Finally, I called back and came in the house one day before our departure and he was able to see what you just explained. He was apologetic and told us that, at least, the problem of the beds would solve the same day. However, we didn't see him again. He also assured us that the next day, before we ended our stay, would come to collect the keys and he did not appear, so we left them in the same place that we picked. The morning of our departure we received an email from Rowan in which he apologized again and offered us £ 100 for the inconvenience that had caused us, but after two months he hasn't refunded this money (I rewrote him again and I gave my bank details but I have not received any income).

Wimdu has not done anything about it and we felt cheated by the host and by Wimdu.

Bokningsprocessen gick bra och vi fick bra återkopplingar med Rowan. När vi kom till huset mötte Peter upp och gav en trevlig introduktion. Huset var mysigt och hade all tänkbar utrustning och vi 6 personer hade gott om plats. Det var nära till tunnelbana och bussar, liksom matställen och supermarkets. Vi hade en mycket trevlig vistelse i London och kan verkligen rekommendera detta hus om man är många som ska bo tillsammans.

Even though we have not seen Rowan, it was a very good weekend!
We were very well guided by telephone, and the house is really well-located, just a few meters from a regular bus, subway and 15min.
Thank you!

Also this year my family (6 adults + 1 child) enjoyed the stay in one of Rowan´s properties! First the original booked house was not available on the confirmed date. But Rowan provided us a much better house in the same location - a really nice surprise! Peter and Rowan gave us a very good assistance before and during the stay. When you are looking for a good restaurant nearby the house you can ask Peter because he knows well about delicious places to eat! And of course the property was very clean.

The house is a delight, full of love and very convenient for us as we traveled with children aged 6 to 9 years. Nice and quiet neighborhood, and very well served by public transport that are very efficient. The only drawback the relationship with those who run it until the day before my departure had never responded to my emails and even in London we were never able to see it even though I need your assistance and having called on the phone multiple times!! !

the house is fine and has everything, but no one was there to open the door when we arrived (on schedule) so we had to call and wait for instructions. NO appeared anyone for accommodation. At

we had a perfect stay in this lovely and quiet house ideally located (5 minutes walk to portobello , 10 minutes form tube station , lots of bus stop at 100 meters, supermarkets) . We were 5 adults and a 5 year old child who highly appreciate all the toys, DVDs, ... Highly recommended !

We had a lovely time in London, and the house was lovely too, it was so much more relaxing staying in a house than a hotel, the children loved the playhouse in the garden and reading the books before bed. We couldn't have picked a better time to come as the weather was glorious, the house was clean and had everything we needed.
