Enjoy a bright and spacious double room with a private bathroom in the heart of Portobello.

As in the film Notting Hill "Spend your days, in this small village in the middle of a city, in a house with a grey door."

The space

My penthouse maisonette is a little quirky. You climb the stairs to the top floor and enter on the bedroom floor. You then take a short windy flight up to the open living area, with soft sofas, large dining space, open fire and access to the large balcony - all with a chic Bohemian vibe. The generous double room comfortably accommodates 2 people. There is a large double wardrobe with plenty of hanging and storage space and a lovely Barcelona chair to sit and watch the world go by. During your stay, browse through the collection of travel guides and plan your next trip.

There are lots of little touches to make your stay more homely:
•600 thread count soft cotton sheets
•Fluffy towels and robes
•Cowshed bath & body products
•An incredibly well equipped kitchen

There is also access to the private communal garden and in the summer months, is a lovely place to relax with a blanket and a bottle of wine on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Guest access

Feel free to unwind on the balcony with a glass of wine overlooking the famous gardens - and in the distance to can see swanky shopping stop Westfield, handy but only if you're able to tear yourself away from Portobello

We always choose Emily's place when we are in town for business - it's convenient to everywhere in terms of transport links, plus in a great neighbourhood for those rare moments of leisure! Emily is a top-notch host and always makes us feel welcome in her very stylish home.

As a first time Airbnb user, with a fear and loathing of all things WordWideWeb based, I was a tad unnerved at the thought of staying in a stranger’s home. However, the moment I met Emily I realised that I had no reason for alarm. Emily is a brilliant host, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable who generously shared space, time, information and wine. Her perfectly situated flat is ideal for all transport links, and has a balcony that is perfect for drinking tea on, and watching the world go by. The level of comfort provided by beautiful bathroom products and the six hundred thread count bed linen surpassed experiences I have had in some allegedly high-end hotels. I cannot recommend Emily’s Luxe Double Portobello Balcony Flat enough. Well, actually I can. It’s fab. So go. I will definitely be recommending to all my friends and followers of which there are few because I neither Face or Tweet. -LPB

Emily's place is AMAZING - a classic Notting Hill townhouse. The interior is very funky - the coolest argyle wallpaper I have ever seen! And a super comfortable room and bathroom. Worth every penny. We'll be back!

Very nice stay. Emily is a great host. Room very clean and comfortable the private bathroom is more than adequate. The road noise outside is a little loud but not too bad and to be expected in London. Overall a great stay I would definitely go back.

Emily was really welcoming! Check in time was really flexible and communication was brilliant! When we met she showed me around her lovely apartment and we had a nice conversation about...pretty much everything! She was really accommodating and helpful whenever I had a query. The room was excellent and was recently renovated, it was beauts! The entire apartment was really warm and friend with an excellent balcony room and an incredible kitchen! I'd give her a 6 stars out of 6! :)

I'm a Londoner born and bred! I've lived in my flat over 20 years, because I know that nowhere else could make me feel this comfortable. I'm very happy to tip you off with my insider knowledge - from the bargain, excellent Portuguese cafes on Golborne Road to the Michelin star restaurants near Notting Hill Gate, from vintage market shopping to hip local London boutiques. I am also a dedicated home chef and local foodie and run my own supperclub in the flat so I can give you an insider run-down on the best delis, wine stops, street food and great market stalls.
