Our stay at John's flat was a wonderful experience in every way. Flat is very comfortable, spacious (for London), and well-equipped. 10 minutes to the tube, close to convenient buses. Only a few doors down from a great park with playground, ping pong, and a cricket pitch. Close to good restaurants and shopping. And it's on a remarkably quiet street - there's so little traffic that we observed numerous driving schools taking student drivers on the street! Enjoyed having our meals in the private back garden. One of the most relaxing months that my family has spent in London.
John was a superb host - welcoming and accommodating of our requests and questions.
We had a wonderful time at Johns Garden Flat! We lived the quiet residential location and the park next door. The sunroom and outdoor space were perfect, we spent most of our time there. Lots of stuff nearby and convenient to tube as well. John was a fantastic host and we would definitely stay here again!
We stayed for 2 months with my husband and daughter. We enjoyed so much at John's flat. It is very nice and lovely place. Especially garden was awesome! It was very suitable for my daughter. There was a very nice park for children right near to the flat.
A few words for the owner of the house John! He is very kind and hospitable. He always answered whenever we had any question.
If we come back to London we would be glad to stay there again.
John's flat is lovely, in a quiet street and very comfortable. The conservatory is a lovely place to eat and relax, it's a great space and helps make the flat seem very spacious. The beds are extremely comfortable. The area is proper London and is very convenient for central London as well as a short bus ride away from great places like Hampstead Heath.
John is an exceptionally kind and considerate host, who did what it took to make sure that my stay was comfortable.
We had a great experience here. The house is wonderful , clean and absolutely big enough for four people . We can access the train station and supermarket very easy. it takes around 5-10 minute to go to supermarket and also 15 minute to train station by walking.
More important is , John is the gorgeous guy. He was waiting for us and provide us the milk in the first day . He is also available for us to answer the question when we need some helps. To summary , this is a great place to stay in London.
I spent more than 3 months at John's apartment with my family (my partner and our two children, aged 4 and 6), while I was working in London for a short period.
We really had a wonderful time in this amazing city and John's apartment has been one of the best ingredients of our experience.
The house is exactly as in the description: very comfortable and warm.
It has all that we needed, in particular for such a long stay. A real home away from home.
The dining room in the sunroom in the garden is definitely a plus that we have used really a lot. We ended up being in love also with the neighbourhood, which we always felt quiet and safe.
Finsbury Park station of the tube is 15 minutes walk, or 5 minutes by bus, and has both Piccadilly and Victoria lines.
John has been the perfect host right from the start, giving a lot of information before our booking. He's always replied very quickly in the (very) rare occasions in which we needed him.
Overall, we couldn't be more satisfied with this experience and John's apartment will certainly be our first choice whenever we'll go back to London.
We highly recommend it.
John is a very kind person and he has been looking after us from the first day. We arrived London very late in the evening and he had bought water and even milk for breskfast. The flat is perfect: very comfortable; very nice with a fantastic terrace and well located ( 12 minutes walking to the underground and even night buses ) . The neighborhoud is very quite and is plain of shops. We have enjoyed a lot and of course I will recommend John's flat to my friends.
We felt as if we were home! And we are happy for having met John and his flat.
