The Space

Garden Flat in Upper Holloway. One bedroom, sitting room, kitchen, a newly renovated Victorian style bathroom and a garden!

The bed is super comfy (I know that, as we used to live downstairs and this was our bed) and the kitchen is fully equipped.

If you want to cook in your flat, you can. Everything works and should you need anything in particular you can ask us. We just don't have a coffee machine.

We have all the supermarkets in walking distance. Waitrose, Morrisons, M&S, Tesco and Sainsbury's. Also Corner Shops as well (email hidden) and an authentic Italian Restaurant which we can recommend.

There is enough space to fit in 3 people, but at the moment there is only one big double bed.
We do have an extra double airbed and a third person could always sleep on the sofa, if you are just staying for a couple of nights/ weekend. But it is not a real sleeping Sofa, therefore not the most comfortable option. If you visit with a little child, we don't charge extra.
In case you will be staying for a longer period and pay rent monthly, you are more than welcome to welcome a guest for a weekend. However, if your guest is staying for longer, we would charge extra. Please let us know in advance.
The Deposit is £120, if you are only planning to stay up to 10 nights. Due to the website we are limited to adjust the deposit, once an inquiry has been sent. If you wish to stay for a longer period we would need to discuss a safety deposit beforehand.

We are both collectors and love photos, books, paintings, old furniture, loads of random stuff. We'll be happy if you enjoy our flat as much as we do!

Guest Access

The Garden Flat, Internet and the Garden at the back

Interaction with Guests

You will have our phone numbers and email addresses, which we will check regularly. Unless we are not on a holiday we will be staying upstairs in our home and if you need anything you can always knock on the door and ask us.

The Neighborhood

London is a very big city, but we are still quite central and have great parks in walking distance. Such as Hampstead Heath.
Upper Street is only 15 minutes by bus, which means you have great restaurants nearby. We also have direct buses to Dalston, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington. If you wanted to head West the Piccadilly Line will get you there directly....or you could walk along the Canal. If you are good on foot you can also walk into the city center. It is about 4 miles or 15 minutes by tube (door to door, including walking 25-30 minutes). We always bike.

Getting around

We live off Holloway Road in Upper Holloway. Tube Stations are Holloway Road (Piccadilly Line, dark blue), Finsbury Park (Victoria Line, light blue) and Tufnell Park or Archway (Northern Line, black). There is also an Overground Station, Upper Holloway and Finsbury Park. There are always buses that stop in 2 min. walking distance. Very easy to find!

There is off street parking outside our house, but you need a permit, which you can purchase at the city council of Islington. However you can park for free between 6pm and 7am. Sundays are free of charge.

Other Things to Note

We live upstairs and you can always ask, if you need anything! We love to cook and go out to restaurants. I have really good books about London, get regular updates of museums and music venues and can suggest loads of good restaurants. We are not paying for a TV license at the moment, but we can provide a screen, which you could connect to your computer in order to watch movies. We also have a lot of DVDs and boardgames...in case London welcomes you with rain!

  • Lovely flat with fantastic vintage decor. The garden was especially nice, and stayed cool despite the warm weather. Coordination with check-out was a bit challenging, but everything worked out OK.

  • We stay one month at Jon & Anna's flat and it was great. Jon and Anna are very kind host, they welcomed us with flowers and chocolate !
    It's a cute, well designed appartment with a beautiful garden that we really appreciate. The location is really convenient you've got everything you need around. (buses / tube station / shops...)
    The street and the flat are quiet.
    We had a pleasant stay and I recommend the place.
    One detail : Don't forget to bring several adaptors as the lights have european plugs.

  • We had the best six weeks in London - felt like we were at home.
    We stayed couple of nights upstairs and over a month in the downstairs flat (with beautiful garden) and we loved loved loved! The location is superb, the flats both upstairs and downstairs are gorgeous, and the couple Jon and Anna are the greatest!
    Having traveled all over the world we have never before experienced this type of accommodation where you just don't want to leave! Our 5-year old son would have liked to move in with them, our dog fell in love not to mention us parents.
    This is the perfect feel-good, make yourself at home, fall in love with London place. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants high quality, cool surroundings, amazing interor design and the greatest hosts!

  • Beautiful flat on a nice neighborhood street in upper Islington. We stayed here for a month, and it was perfect. Good location, easy to walk to the Holloway Road tube stop which is on the Picadilly line (10/15 minute walk), and close Bus stops as well that take you pretty much anywhere in the city. Anna and Jon, who live upstairs were so sweet and helpful. Anna invited us up and gave us a great list of recommendations and was always very accessible to reach by phone or email if we ever needed. The flat was very clean and included everything you need- dish ware, pots & pans, etc. The garden in the backyard is so lovely. Felt very homely. Would definitely stay here again and again!

  • An absolutely beautiful flat, furnished to make you feel like you're living a five star London life! Very cool and chic and with everything you could want, including a gorgeous bathroom and perfect little garden. The lovely Anna and Jon live just upstairs, so they make sure they help out as soon as possible if there's anything you need. (email hidden) base for holiday or work. Thank you!
