A light-filled and spacious 2 bedroom apartment in beautiful, historic Hampstead

We can now offer more dates for rental in 2020 - 2021. If interested please contact me. Our lovely fully-furnished, light-filled 2 bedroom apartment is available at this stage for the end of 2020 and parts of 2021. Please note availability for 2021 is potentially a little more flexible because we have a number of people waiting to confirm due to COVID restrictions in their own countries. During the time of COVID19, we have been renovating our kitchen and other parts of the flat.
There is one (UK/ USA) King-sized bed in each bedroom (In Australia, this is equivalent to a Queen-sized bed - ie larger than double). the flat therefore easily accommodates 3 people (1 couple and 1 adult/older child) or 2 couples.
The flat is situated in beautiful, historical Hampstead village, London. Centrally located with several Tube lines (Northern Line - 300 yards; the Jubilee/ Metropolitan lines is a 10 minute walk or bus ride) so also very close by. Close to University of London and its many colleges , surrounded by shops, restaurants, cinemas. Everything is at your door step - including the wonderful Hampstead Heath!
The front room has secondary-glazing, the back bedroom has double glazing so temperature and external noises are well controlled. Rent £650 GBP per week (usually the minimum rental period is 6 weeks) plus exit cleaning fee, £80. Please note between Nov 1st - March 30th there is an additional £10 GBP weekly for heating. Otherwise, rent includes council rates and taxes and all utilities, except telephone calls. Inside keeping you cosy on cold days there is central heating, a new smart TV and super fast Wifi throughout the flat.
We supply a regular clean by our own professional cleaner every fortnight to carry out surface cleaning, vacuuming and dusting.
No car space but visitor parking permits are available for purchase from the council. Car clubs such as ZIP, ENTERPRISE or GOGET cars are also available very close by.
Reservation / security deposit and references is required to confirm booking our apartment.
We are always very happy to answer any questions.

We stayed in the flat from 1 September to 15th December 2019. The flat is just as shown in the pictures. It bright, clean and extremely functional. The location is fantastic! Easy access to the Underground and lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. YOU can get almost anywhere within London in 30-40 minutes. Perfect!

Also, our dealings with Gerry (the owner) were great. She was extremely attentive to our emails.

Staying here couldn't have been a better experience!

We stayed at Gerry and Mark's flat for three and a half months, from February - May 2019. We could not have been happier. The flat is just as described on the site and in the other reviews: light, clean, airy, with everything you need to cook at home and live comfortably. Gerry and Mark were prompt to answer any questions, and having Yasmeen come every two weeks to clean was a special treat. The location simply could not be better. We bought fish, meat, and wonderful French and Spanish cheeses at the local market across the street (the cheese ladies only come on Saturdays), and used Tesco and M&S for everything else. The Flask is the best local pub ever: great selection of beers, perfectly kept, and a relaxed atmosphere. (I'm missing my Meantime Yakima Red right now.) Plus the Heath. For exercise, I regularly took a four mile-walk there, a giant isosceles triangle: first slanted up to Kenwood House, popped in to say hi to one of the greatest Rembrandt self-portraits in the world, then slanted down to Parliament Hill, with a few detours along the way, and then traveled the base line home, with perhaps a stop by the Flask to restore any calories I might have lost. I was teaching in Bloomsbury, and my daily commute (via the Northern line) was under half an hour door-to-door, plus when I came home at night everything was so quiet and calm, especially as compared to Central London. If all that I've mentioned has any appeal, then this would be an excellent choice for you, quite possibly unbeatable. Excellent Mark Rasmussen 8/28/2019 6:15:00 AM
We stayed for a month over Christmas and New Year. The flat is in great condition and really comfortable. The location is excellent, a minute from Hampstead underground station and a few minute's walk from Hampstead Heath. The flat is on the second floor, looking onto the high street. The double glazed windows keep the flat warm and quiet. The hosts were helpful and attentive with any questions. Highly recommended. Excellent SJM 1/21/2019 7:38:00 PM
We could not have chosen a better place to live during our six month stay in London.

30 Hampstead High Street is a very secure 2nd floor walk up. The flat is clean, with beautiful natural light from several large windows. The open floor plan has beautiful hard wood floors, two large bedrooms, with comfortable beds. It is an efficient, well-appointed flat. It is very tastefully and minimally decorated, which we really enjoyed, preferring that to times when we’ve stayed in someone’s place filled with personal mementos, making it difficult to feel it was “ours.”

The kitchen was small but well appointed, with well-functioning appliances and thegas hob was easy to operate. The clothes washer is reliable and small, but adequate. We air dried the clothing on a sturdy rack provided. The weekly cleaning service was a wonderful extra. Y. did a lovely job and left the flat sparkling each Monday. We just planned to be out of the flat during her visit so we wouldn’t be in the way.

Gerry and Mark are great! They were very responsive and helpful landlords. All of the negotiations were clear and transparent. They made our return deposit very promptly after our stay. Cost of the rental was extremely fair considering London’s skyrocketing real estate. Though they reside in Australia they have good contacts in Hampstead if any problems arise. There is a book of detailed instructions which was very helpful and answered most of our questions.

We were pleased to find a lot of travel guides, a selection of movies, books & CD’s. The internet service was extremely reliable. It was a wonderful convenience to have a printer available for work.

Living on the High St offered easy access to bookstores, stationers, hardware store, Tesco Express, great bakeries--Paul, Gail’s, a number of great pubs (The Flask is highly recommended and right around the corner!) and most importantly the Underground—the Northern Line. This means a quick trip to Central London and easy access to all rail services out of the city. There is a bus stop right outside the flat, but it is not noisy. We were never bothered by street noise except for the typical city sounds of ambulance sirens, etc.

We joined the Keats Community Library which is just a short walk away, and each Sunday walked down the High Street to the Unitarian Chapel to attend services.

There is a real village feel to Hampstead. So much to discover and revel in, right in the neighborhood. Hampstead is a wonderful place to live! Our biggest joy was the easy access to the Hampstead Heath with its wonderful walking paths, hiking, and the beautiful ponds.

Again, we could not have asked for more!

My family stayed in this flat Aug - Dec, 2016 and had the perfect stay. The flat is spacious and has EVERYTHING you need. It is convenient to the bus and the tube. The weekly cleanings are a nice bonus. My family always felt very comfortable walking around and exploring Hampstead. I must say that during the warmer months, it is a bit noisy with the windows open because of how close you are to the bus stop.

Gerry was always very responsive when we had questions. You should not hesitate, if you are considering this flat.
