Guest access

Open plan living room-kitchen with leafy views. I can provide a shelf in the fridge for snacks and whatever you have for breakfast and you are welcome to cook one or two light meals during your stay, but NO frying. Microwave. The kitchen has a round dining table. (There are numerous good cafes and restaurants in the area.) A private roof terrace with a small table and chairs is lovely if you like having breakfast in the open air.

Please note that large gatherings or dinner parties are a no-no, and noise must be minimal in the evening and at night. Suitable for creatives, academics, visitors wanting to explore London. If you want to stay indoors and not go out this is not the place for you, please book elsewhere.

Sainsbury and Tesco are on Ladbroke Grove. A bus stop is a 1 minute walk away with 24/7 bus routes to Kensington and the West End.

Fornasetti-themed bathroom sometimes shared with guest in single room downstairs.

Please take a look at my other listing for comments.

Interaction with guests

I will meet and greet you when you arrive. Arrival and check out times to be confirmed preferably when booking as I have a busy diary.

Arrival time between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., & check out by 2 p.m.

Though I work freelance from home and am generally pretty tied up, or out at meetings, but we will find an opportunity to meet and have a chat.
Me and my partner are not hoteliers, so we are unable to provide extras such as newspapers and room service; and we do not accommodate children.

Other things to note

If you have a pre-existing medical condition, or a medical condition you are aware of but for which you have not had a diagnosis, please ensure you have full insurance cover and be up front and honest about it when asking to book the room.

I have stayed at this location before and it's close to Portabello road and close to the tube station. Hostess is great and I highly recommend this airbnb to anyone coming to stay in London.

A friendly welcoming host. Beautifully decorated flat with a nice atmosphere. Clean, tidy and well organized. I stayed in the room with the small double bed, so could accommodate a couple. The other single room looked delightful too. A sunny terrace for a morning coffee. The area has everything a wonderful selection of cafes and restaurants, a market, interesting shops and so easy to get anywhere else. The quintessential Airbnb experience and I look forward to returning.

Georgia is soooooo nice and the house is better than described. The first day when I arrived, I had my mac display cracked, then Georgia helped me a lot to find a appropriate place to fix it. She even printed out a map and a shop view picture. I am so grateful. Besides, every day she will give us some tips on the traveling plan when we enquire. If I come back next time, I surely will bring nice oolong tea for Georgia!

Georgia's home is really cozy and comfortable and clean, and beautifully decorated to boot! The location is just great; a couple minutes walk to Ladbroke Grove Tube stop, several buses right there, and the Portobello Road / Market just a few steps literally around the next corner. Georgia herself is lovely and friendly and happy to have a chat, but there is also a sense of privacy if you just want to do your own thing - so a nice balance. Check in and check out were very relaxed and easy to arrange. I also enjoyed the presence of her beautiful cat. I would definitely stay here again.

Georgia's is where I stay at whenever I travel to London. It is such a treat to have found a place that feels at home while abroad!
