Elegant Notting Hill 19th century house occupied by myself, the owner, and a whippet. For rent a large and elegant double room, en suite. It is a very clean and very quiet environment - guests can access the large L shaped living room, the kitchen, dining room and garden.

The space

The house is a beautiful 1840s typical white stuccoed Notting Hill Gate house. The room is spacious, en suite, with a super king size bed, it is a peaceful room, elegantly furnished. There is plenty of storage space and the en-suite bathroom has a large shower, a bath tub, twin basins, a washing machine, a dryer, and it is flooded with light. The bedroom has two windows and can be very light and also darkened completely at night time. There is a music system, books, and scented candles.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the kitchen on the ground floor and the garden. They will be able to use the washing machine and dryer is necessary. No problems with giving access to the fridge as well, if necessary. I can also provide breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee/tea/milk/juices, eggs, bread if required (£10 extra). We also have a piano in the living room, in case you play music!

Interaction with guests

I am happy to interact with guests as much as they would like to interact with me. Privacy is paramount, but happy to help with information on the area. Also, as a yoga teacher, I can also offer private Hatha yoga sessions at home for £25 per hr.

Other things to note

The house is on five floors and it is really marvellous, and we love being here. I have a housekeeper who takes care of tidying up and cleaning twice a week. So you will find it is elegant, clean, comfortable and very private on each floor. All features are original.

I expect the same quiet and respect we will offer our guests. I work full time, travel frequently and understand the needs of travellers around the world. I have a lovely dog, a whippet, called Maju, and guests should be respectful and affectionate with Maju, when they encounter him up and down the stairs, or on the living room sofa. He has his own space and his own bed. He is very quiet and well behaved, a joy to have around.

My mom and I stayed with Marina for a few days, and we had a very pleasant experience. It was refreshing to walk into the flat after a long day of travel and be greeted by such a welcoming and beautifully decorated place. It also smells nice... I almost felt like I was in a spa :) Marina was very nice, communicative, and accommodating. She even made sure I had almond milk, which was much appreciated since I have a dairy allergy. The flat is in a very nice location close to Notting hill shops, the Portobello Market, and restaurants. The bed is large, and the space was comfortable for the two of us. The street is a little noisy at night, but as long as you have earplugs, you should be good. Marina is a stellar host, and it was a pleasure meeting her and talking with her. I would definitely recommend staying there and would return again. Thank you!

Marina's place is wonderfull : The room is perfectly furnished, the ensuite bathroom very convenient and large. Marina gave us perfect indications to get to her place, and was there to welcome us... with a cup of coffee, which was great, since we had been up since 3am ! The neighborhood is very peaceful, it is very easy to get around, since the bus is right out of the door. We warmly recommended Marina's place : if we have a chance, we will stay there again. Thank you Marina ! La maison de Marina est magnifique, la chambre double immense et meublée avec goût. La salle de bain privative et attenante est très bien agencée également. Marina nous a fourni toutes les indications utiles avant notre arrivée et nous a accueillies avec un café ... ce qui était très bienvenu, puisque nous nous étions levées à l'aube ! Le quartier est très tranquille et c'est très facile de se déplacer, le bus étant devant la porte... Nous retournerons sans hésiter à cette belle adresse ... Merci Marina !

We had a wonderful stay at Marina's place. Location is perfect. The house is very 'nothing hill' and we really feel we were living in the middle of the action. Marina welcomed us in the best way and is always available for tips about the city. For those who could be worry about the dog, you should not ! She is quiet and lovely Will def come back Clem & Mae

I lead a busy international life and always enjoy meeting new people. I come from Italy originally and I strongly believe in hospitality. I treat my guests respectfully and with kindness. Guests should be dog lovers as I have a lovely whippet in the house. I am happy to help out with information on the area for anyone who may come from abroad and may not be familiar with wonderful Notting Hill Gate. Happy for guests to cook and use the kitchen in the house....For more details please use : wallace.marina y, a,h, o, o. c o u, k
