Spectacular sun-filled, south-facing luxury canal-side triplex, overlooking Notting Hill and far beyond. Includes a wonderful, 20-foot-high, penthouse loft with floating bedroom platform.

Owned and built by a Scandinavian designer, this ultra-stylish but quiet and very cozy and romantic apartment has been crafted with wit and love and has never previously been rented except for the occasional fashion shoot. Sleeping up to eight people, the apartment has great transport links, free WiFi and unlimited telephone calls to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.

A private entrance and mural-decorated staircase leads up to the higher floors of a red brick Victorian house. On the lower floor there is one bedroom with its own south-facing balcony overlooking the canal and Meanwhile Gardens (a small nature reserve), a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and another bathroom. Both bathrooms have showers and jetted tubs.

Continuing up a further short flight of stairs, you emerge firstly into the fully-fitted kitchen with another balcony and a wonderfully positioned breakfast table from where you can lazily sip your coffee and enjoy the south-facing view over Notting Hill and the magnificent London skyline. Turn another corner and you are in the triplex's huge double-leveled penthouse loft with twin fireplaces. Seeing is believing. Part of it leads up to the roof terrace which is well lit and fitted with outdoor heater (for al fresco night-time winter reading?).

A further part leads up to the gravity-defying floating bed and study in the attic space, from where you can laze and gaze forever, over your friends downstairs or the birds and boats on the canal, or just out over the amazing view. All nine windows are fitted with blinds, but seem to be rarely used - no wonder!

Facilities in the Condominium:
Dishwasher, Air Conditioning, Cable or Satellite Television, Cooking Utensils, Tumble Dryer, DVD Player, Kitchen, Linen Service, Microwave, Open Fire, Refrigerator, Stereo, TV, Washing Machine, additional Ipod docking station to connect any Ipod into the high quality sound system.

Balconies overlooking the canal from both the kitchen and the guest bedroom. The living room and floating bedroom platform, guest bedroom and kitchen all over look the Grand Union, England's longest and most beautiful canal, and onwards over Notting Hill and the whole city.


The house is located on a quiet Victorian street, some of whose houses, almost in secret back, onto the Grand Union canal. It is perfectly positioned for explorations all over the capital. A delightful short stroll along the canal takes you to the quaint café’s, antique and junk shops and market of the Golborne Road and Portobello Road that leads you in turn to Notting Hill.

Activities near Chelsea
Cinema, Night Club, Restaurant, Shopping, Tennis, Theatre, Zoo/Wildlife Park

A five minute bus trip will get you to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, and a fifteen minute journey will take you to either the theatres of the West End or to Camden Market, arguably the only genuine competitor to Portobello road for multicultural people-watching and wild street fashion.

Paddington station, two stops by tube or a few minutes by taxi has the non-stop Heathrow Express which takes twenty minutes to get to any terminal. By arrangement ‘a mini-cab’ can be sent to meet you at any of London’s four airports.

Sehr geehrtes Team von Wimdu,
zuerst: wir sind sehr zufrieden mit Rowan und seinem Team. Allerdings sind wir verstimmt über das Verhalten des Besitzers des von uns am 01.01.2014!!! gebuchten Appartements 12a Hormead Road. Offensichtlich hat dieser das Appartement selber vermietet, so dass uns Rowan im Mai das Haus in St. Charles Square anbieten musste:
(My name is Rowan and I am managing this property on behalf of the owner. I must first thank you kindly for choosing to book with us, however, I must apologise as I am writing with mixed news regarding your booking with us. Unfortunately we now have an issue with this property and we will not be able to accommodate your stay at 12a Hormead Road, London. This is due to the owner having booked the use of the apartment for themselves without our knowledge.

I have tried everything in my power to resolve this with the owners but sadly I cannot change their decision to keep the house for their own use. As such, I have now found another of our properties which is still available for your dates as a possible replacement. Please see the link below to view this house....).
Noch einmal, wir sind mit Rowan und seinem Team (insbesondere Peter) sehr zufrieden, aber sie sollten überlegen, ob sie den Besitzer des Appartementes in der Hormead Road weiter in ihrem Bestand behalten wollen.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen!
Ihr J. Schabronath

Unfortunately, our beautiful London trip is over. Rowan took care of everything perfectly and easily, again many thanks. The apartment offers ample space for eight women. The kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, microwave, oven, kettle etc, and very cozy. All true very clean and tidy but in need of renovation. It has been a good experience and we would the apartment (rent again after renovation) at any time.

A cozy and artistic house in a less nice neighborhood. We were nine people, but there are good beds for up to 8 people.

Hello we were 3 middle aged couples and found the apartment over 3 levels great. The rooms were clean and ordentlich.Der view of the Kanl is very pleasant. The contact is very good and straightforward. Negative, and here the owner should invest once something is this: The upper terrace should be revoviert once, then it's also fun to sit outside in good weather. Please check once the kettle and replace the coffee maker, and a refrigerator and a dishwasher. Was not so great, they were leftovers from the previous tenant still in the coffee maker and kettle. Whom it is addressed, it is perfect. Gladly again. Andreas Wy.

Very uniquely decorated apartment. Has capacity for 8 people. Travel time to the underground 5min. The windows are not very tight but otherwise a great stay. We have felt ourselves very well and have our dinner plans for the next day with WiFi planned the large dining table.

We had good communication with the tenant before we went there and got the keys as agreed when we arrived. The apartment was tidy and in good condition. It also included bedding, which we had not expected! Most things in the apartment worked well. It was just a few small things that could be worked better example coffee machine. It took about 40 minutes to brew a pot of coffee! But it did not matter so much, we could hang out longer at breakfast! The windows were not sealed but they are probably not in any English house! Now we were there in May and it was pretty hot out so it went well anyway. But blowing it out so it draws a lot. The apartment is located in a good area with a short distance to both the underground / bus, shops and restaurants / pubs. Overall we thought it was five good days and the apartment suited us two families with ten really good.

We had a very nice time in London. It is a nice house. The beds are good. Everyting you need for self catering is available . For London standards the house had much space. Realy nice for a groep or big family. Nice pubs and grocery shops in the neighbourhood.
