Thoroughly recommend this property, the staff at Home From Home were very helpful and professional, we travelled to London via Amsterdam from Australia, arriving at Gatwick we were picked up by private car who had the keys to the property, the house was cosy and had everything we needed, as our stay was for 4 weeks we had arranged with Home From Home for a weekly clean in which they also brought in fresh towels and sheets, the house is in a cul de sac, but it does get a little busy with the two primary schools and a busy car repair across the street, but this is only during school beginning and end, and the Car repair shop is open Saturday mornings.
The property is a short walk to the Tube Station at Notting Hill Gate, Buses, shops, pubs, restaurants, Portabello Rd and Kensington Gardens.
The only draw back for us was no outside space, we presumed when initially viewing the photos of the property that the small courtyard seen in the pics was a part of the property, but soon realised upon arriving that it was part of a neighbouring property, but in all we enjoyed our stay and recommend it for couples or families.

We are a family of 4 which includes 2 adult children ages 21 and 23. We arrived in London after 5 days in Paris where we also stayed at an apartment. The Edge Street apartment in London was a wonderful place to come home to after a long day of walking, shopping and sightseeing. The apartment was very close (like step-out-your door-around-the-corner close) to the tube, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, markets, Kensington Palace, and Portobello Road and in a little street that was quiet and quaint. We pride ourselves in being "travelers not tourists" so living amongst the locals allowed us to really get immersed in the London culture. We loved watching the children in their little uniforms walking with their mums and dads to the school at the end of our street in the morning...taking the tube with the rest of London's commuters...enjoying the neighborhood pubs with the locals. The apartment was well appointed and clean (we had one issue upon our arrival with the kitchen counter and dead gnats in the living room window, but this was easily remedied, and the rest of the flat was immaculate). We took this flat on Faith that what we would get is what we saw on the internet, and we were glad we did. From beginning to end, HFH did an excellent job in assisting us with our housing and travel plans, and their quick response to any of our concerns or questions did much to boost our confidence. Transportation from the train station and to the airport was well organized by Home From Home management and made our visit to London so easy. We received our security deposit in a very timely manner. We were sad to leave and look forward to coming back!
