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.
La casa è deliziosa, perfetta per un soggiorno di 4 persone, abbiamo trovato tutto ciò che ci serviva e John è stato davvero disponibile! Carinissimo il giardino d'inverno e lo stile tipicamente inglese dell'appartamento! John ci ha dato le istruzioni adeguate per raggiungere la casa dalla stazione metro di finsbury park e comunque è facile da trovare. Unico neo è il quarto d'ora di strada a piedi che bisogna percorrere per arrivare alla metro.. Vi consigliamo di armarvi di scarpe comode e tanta voglia di passeggiare anche perché Londra è immensa ed il tempo per visitarla non è mai abbastanza!
John, our host, was extremely responsive to our inquiries and coordinating a special request to exchange keys in advance of our visit with in-town family. The layout of the flat and accommodations more than met our needs -- the sunroom and garden are excellent features, not likely found elsewhere. The flat did require a bit of cleaning to make the stay enjoyable. The location also was perfect for our needs.
Its a well equipped appartment with tastefull decor. The patio was definately a winner as it was 26°c when we were there. Its in walking distance of Finsbury st. with both piccadilly and victoria line. The neighbourhood is quiet and supermaket + restaurants are 3 min. away. John is a helpfull and friendly host.
