Because the flat is peaceful and tranquill I don't allow parties.
I LOVE my neighbours and the people in the building, everyone knows each other and its a very friendly environment, most people will interact with each other. Please be kind to them , especially my neighbour who is 92, he loves to say hello, and I treasure him and the others around me. It makes the space even more pleasurable.
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.

There are not enough words allowed here for me, for us, to describe just how amazing our stay in CJ's gorgeous home was. so i'm going to bullet point it an hope some justice is done. *Magnificent host...end of! *Open and honest contact from before I even booked *Prompt & Friendly responses *Informative *Flexibility and consideration for my circumstances - a genuinely caring lady - (good vibes even via email!! :) *Easy key access - met be the lovely Sophia even though we were an hour beyond the time promised she was there with a lovely smile to welcome us *Fresh flowers, cinnamon spicy fragrances to welcome the weariest traveler and make them feel at home. *Superb welcome pack including a very nice Chardonnay (I drink red but this was lovely) *Clear in instructions for absolutely everything - even a dummy like me felt technically adept after reading this. *The flat...Ohhh the flat. Beautiful. Clearly loved home of a well traveled lady - she leaves her calming aura in every room. *Amazing raised king size bed *A bathroom to put many 5* plus hotels to shame....salts, lotions and potions all for the use of - Luxurious towels, massive deep bath - My husband is 6'6 and he was able to really stretch out in it......devils own getting him out of there!!! *Birds eye view of Notting Hill carnival was an unexpected perk (especially as it rained on Monday!) *There was NOTHING not to like about this place which is an extension of the host and there's definitely nothing not to like about her. Away doing good deeds at the time of out visit we will stay again, if she'll have us if only to meet her in the flesh. We were sad to leave and of all the lovely breaks we've had over the last couple of years (10 years married and only started holidaying last year!) This, including Newquay which is an experience in itself, is head and shoulders above. So yes the apartment is amazing but it reflects the host and she is exceptional. This place is not cheap BUT it's worth every single penny and more - there are some things you just can't buy class and a beautiful aura are just two of them Thanks CJ - you know what this meant to me and made sure it was special

CJ is a wonderful person who made sure to call all the way from america to make sure i was happy and okay. The flat was beautiful and exactly what we needed for our photo shoot for Lush Cosmetics. The area is lovely and safe and i highly recommend taking a trip to portabello market.

A great apartment in a fantastic location! From the moment we entered the apartment, we were greeted with the smell of fresh flowers and one of the most beautiful apartment in Notting Hill. CJ was extremely attentive with our needs and made us feel at home in an instant with the basket of food she left for us and the welcome note! The flat is in a great neigbourhood in Notting Hill and was very spacious and extremely clean. There are all of the shops and restaurants nearby and Central London is only a stones throw away. I can't thank CJ enough for our most enjoyable stay and we will definitely be returning to her apartment on our next visit to London.

*Wonderful stay* It was my first time to use Airbnb, but I am very glad I used it. l have stayed at many hotels all over the world but Carla's flat was definitely a five star if not more. The location is top notch, probably on the best street in London with lovely shops and delicious restaurants. Hyde park is 10 minutes away, the tube and buses are very convenient. The flat is beautiful in and out. Stylish and cozy with a heavenly bath, feels like a spa. Time flows quitely and you feel so relaxed after a long day in London. Carla is such a wondeful host, notices small details and is very generous and layed back. Also her driver Cy is great as well, better than other taxis we've used before so highly recommend as well. I will definitely return again when visiting London. Thank you for the great stay!!

5 *****star treatment in the heart of the city!! We recently stayed at CJ's and from the moment we arrived it was an absolute pleasure. It was the first time I was traveling overseas with my 6 month old daughter and after emailing with CJ to confirm the apartment was suitable for children she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She prepared the house with items such as, baby wipes, bathing toys, towels, lotion and even offered to babysit!! She was contactable throughout our stay and any questions about the neighborhood or home we're met with prompt responses. The apartment pictures are true and honest, it's obvious this is her home and she takes exceptional care of it. I'm not sure if CJ mentions this in the overview but there is a TV in the living room and bedroom, which is nice for a lazy lie in or jet lag and is rare in London.

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!!!
