SMOKING IS A NO NO both in the flat or in the common areas, IF you are a smoker, you need to go downstairs and outside or at the cafe across the with tables in the sun, it's a wonderful spot for your daily dose of caffeine and a local snap shot of life in Notting Hill.

I have lived in the area for over 23 years and love every day here, I am lucky enough to have a flat that is perfectly located for just about anything you want to do in London. I now value every day there as its so full of energy and interesting people. Originally from the USA I have lived in the UK for over 25 years and London is by far my favourite place to be. I am looking forward to sharing my flat to have others enjoy the area as much as I do.
My flat is known to my friends as the IVORY TOWER, its in the hustle and bustle of Notting Hill yet when the door opens you feel your in a tranquil space. Its quiet and calming and when my friends drop by they seem to melt in the couch. Could it be the linger of all the essential oils in the air? The flat has a happy light feeling with everything you could need.
I love hosting and taking care in preparing the flat for others. Everything is cleaned to a high standard and the sheets and towels I choose for my guests are top quality. I go over and above and leave you a gift basket to nibble on as well as a nice bottle of wine. I leave the flat with everything I would expect to have if I was arriving for a restful holiday.
I know you will be comfortable here as my reviews reflect the energy I put into making sure your stay is worth it.
Happy to help in any way I can!!!
