Upstairs are two more double bedrooms and one bedroom furnished with bunk beds. The upstairs floors are hardwood. All bedrooms come equipped with clock/radios and hairdryers. Also, upstairs, is a utility cupboard where the boiler lives and there you will find the washer/dryer/iron & ironing board.

Floors are of black & white tiles. The upper floor is where the 3 bedrooms are located (2 doubles/one room with bunk beds) and here the floors are all wooden. Utility cupboard contains the washer/dryer, boiler and iron & ironing board.

About Maria Barry

My family have owned house for three generations. I spent many happy summers here with my nonna and even went to school in Barga for a while (which is how I come to speak Italian!)

We are only in residence over the summer months and in the Easter holidays as we have our main residence in London. We will always be 'on site'' to help with any queries as we live on the ground floor or the villa, above the Taverna.

We have been renting to holiday makers for over 10 years now and love opening up our beautiful home to visitors.

Having worked extensively in the Travel Business both in the USA and England I am uniquely qualified for this task! We also have two properties in London, UK (Paddington) which are also listed with Owners Direct and which we rent out all the year round!

Maria Barry purchased this apartment in 1949

Why Maria Barry chose Paddington

Paddington has changed a great deal over the years. It used to be quite run down but now is virtually trendy!

What makes this apartment unique

Close to everything: Tube, Train, Buses, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Portobello Road, Oxford Street etc etc. Also right across the street from St. Mary's Hospital where our latest member of the Royal Family was born!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Here is what our most recent guest had to say:

Myself, wife and six year old daughter along with my sister, her husband and their two young children all stayed in this walk-up. The flat was spacious and very accommodating along with being located in a perfect location within walking distance to Hyde Park, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and even the London Eye if you are adventuresome. The owners are very nice and make you feel welcome.

Convenient and pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! The best thing about this place is the 200 yard walk from Paddington station. Relatively spacious for a London flat. Clean and tidy, and Maria, the housekeeper very helpful. A great place to stay for a family gathering (4 children, 6 adults).

Lovely flat with lots of space. Updated baths and comfy beds.

  • 5 of 5

There was a group of 8 of us that stayed in the flat. It was unusually hot in London during our stay and although it did not have air conditioning the housekeeper was gracious enough to keep us as cool as possible with lots of fans. We had a wonderful experience and would definetly rent from them again in the future.

Lovely, bright apartment with lots of restaurants around.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment fit our 2 families quite well (9pp). It was bright and clean with newly renovated bathrooms. Maria was very helpful with any questions with had. The proximity of Paddington station was very convenient (direct train to Heathrow). There is also a tube station and taxis come around quite often. Lots of options for groceries, restaurants and pubs, as well as a really good bakery next door!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It is a nice and spacious apartment for a large group like us, 6 adults and 2 kids. The location is very good, close to train station. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. The only thing we don't like is the noises from the street as the apartment is facing the main road and the hospital is opposite the apartment. Apart from that, everything is perfect. We will definitely come back in the future. What's more, the housekeep, Maria is very friendly and helpful. Thanks, Maria!

The maisonette was wonderful. The listed description of the maisonette is accurate.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect and the flat was perfect. It is easy to arrive from the Heathrow. Acces to the main tube lines and buses is also easy. You have to walk only couple of minutes. The maisonette was clean and well-maintained and Maria gave us enough information how to use all the equipments.

We had a great time and we can really recommend the place to our friends. Everything was fine and our next time visit to London this maisonette might be our choice again.

Car: not necessary


We are only 15 minutes from Heathrow Airport using the Heathrow Express or Heathrow Connect Trains to Paddington. Car use is not recommended since we are located very close the Congestion Charge area of London and parking meters are hard to find and expensive! However, if you do decide to bring a car we can arrange very reasonable rates at a nearby open air garage. (10 mins walk from maisonette) Rates are around £20 per day, per vehicle which is very cheap for Central London!


The property is located centrally and most London attractions are within walking distance. Paddington tube (and main line) station is only one minute away and many buses stop right outside the door! Satisfied rentors always comment on how convenient the location is.

Further Details:

There are shops and restaurants galore and Oxford Street is only a short walk away. A small supermarket (Tesco Express) is only a few minute's walk from the maisonette and the larger Waitrose is a 5 minute walk away. There is a very good fish & chip shop (Mikey's) almost directly next door, on Norfolk Place.
