We have a spacious Maisonette on a quiet street. It is a comfortable flat with an eclectic Vintage mix of furniture and random things and a nice little balcony, where you can enjoy some afternoon sun.
Hello! We are Jon and Anna and we would like to let out our home while we are on holidays.
We love to spend weekends in the countryside and if you give us some time to get everything ready, we could always make a plan so that you can come and stay at our home over a weekend.
There is a large bed and two big sofas, one of them is extremely comfortable and considered our personal holiday home. The flat can easily accommodate a family of 3.
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, as we are both tea drinkers.
We have all the supermarkets in walking distance. Waitrose, Morrisons, M&S, Tesco and Sainsbury's. Also Corner Shops as well as a Kebap Place and an authentic Italian Restaurant which we can recommend.
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. In our office you'll find a projector. If you bring your computer you can screen movies onto the wall and watch them in x-large. We also have a lot of DVDs and boardgames...in case London welcomes you with rain!
We are both collectors and love photos, books, paintings, old furniture, flowers and loads of random stuff. We'll be happy if you enjoy our flat as much as we do!

Interaction with Guests
You will have our phone numbers and email addresses, which we will check regularly.
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.
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.
You are welcome in our home, just please respect it and take good care of it!

Jon and Anna's flat is charming, beautiful and very photogenic! It is full of stories and character. I only visited it for a day to locate a photo shoot, however it is so cosy that I am sure it can be a great place to stay for a longer period of time. I have only met Anna - she was very welcoming, kind and inspiring. The chocolate she offered was yummy too! Thank you so much.
I had a wonderful stay and Jon and Anna's flat. The flat was very clean and comfortable on a beautiful road.
Thank you very much Anna and Jon! Your apartment is very good, and it has everything we needed! Best Wishes!!
The 3 days we stayed at Jon and Anna's flat were fantastic. We felt straight away at home. It's a very cosy and spacious flat. Our two year old boy loved it. Thanks especially to Anna for welcoming us and being so helpful.
