About This Listing
Welcome to the family home of my son and I, a bright first floor flat with high ceilings, in a quiet road with a friendly local community and a small park just opposite. The double bedroom is light and airy at the back of the house. Quiet with a view of gardens and trees out the window, it is a peaceful place to rest up after a day in London. You can use the kitchen and living room.
CLOSE TO ALL OF LONDON
We are a 5 minute walk from the local tube station Caledonian Road (Zone 2) on the Piccadilly line and its fabulous quick and easy access to all of central London.
Covent Garden is 15 minutes away by tube.
Camden 15 minutes by bus.
Oxford Street, Tower of London and The City, all 20 minutes by tube.
You will get to most other places in Central London within 30 minutes.
If you haven't found out about Oyster Travel cards (see 'Transport for London' website) I can advise, as it offers the most economic way of travelling by public transport around London. I have a very good knowledge of London and how to get around, so happy to help you plan your day.
ARRIVING IN LONDON
We are easily and quickly reached from Eurostar, just one tube station from Kings Cross St Pancras at Caledonian Road.
GETTING HERE is just as easy from the airports.
Heathrow: Direct on the Piccadilly Line to Caledonian Road.
Gatwick: Train direct to Kings Cross then one stop on the tube to Caledonian Road.
Stansted: Train to Liverpool Street, 4 stops on the tube to Kings Cross, change then one stop to Caledonian Road.

I will supply bedding and towels, plus continental breakfast. Help yourself anytime to tea and coffee. WiFi connection plus reasonable computer access if you require, easy parking with priced vouchers.
Guests have use of the kitchen to make a lunch for their day out, as well as offer an alternative to eating out in the evening. This can help people with specific dietary requirements.
There is a good standard of local restaurants within walking distance offering Italian, Spanish or Indian food. Holloway Road, the local shopping street, is 5 minutes walk and has a reasonable selection of food shops, supermarkets and a small department store.
I have lived here for 20 years or so and work from home as a graphic designer. We have a close community and look after a local Gardens just across from the house, where we put on an annual summer party.
My aim is to help you enjoy your stay in London by making you as welcome as I can.
I am very relaxed so don't have many rules the only major one is no smoking in the flat please. This is my home, so treat it as your own home.
We enjoyed our stay at Keith’s house very much. He’s a great host, always ready to give you good tips on where to go and what to visit in London.
Keith’s place met our expectations, as the description on the website is faithful.
The neighborhood was very quiet, nice and relaxing to walk through. It’s well serviced by buses, a nearby tube station and small shops all around the area. We would go back to Keith’s place for sure! He prepared a good breakfast every morning which we enjoyed a lot!
Keith's home is cosy and well-maintained. The rooms are very clean and the bed is superbly comfortable. Keith is also a friendly and welcoming host. The location (Caledonian Road) is excellent as it makes it easy to get to several locations via the tube.

We spent 2 amazing days in London and enjoyed very much staying in Kieth's appartment. Keith welcomed us very well in his lovely home and let us enjoy the place as if it was our home too. He helped a lot with our arrival and explain how and where to go from the flat. We definitely recommend to stay here! Thanks again! Melanie&Robin

About the Host, Keith
I am a South Londoner by birth and moved to north London about twenty five years ago now. I've lived here for over twenty years with my son Jake and am involved in the local street community. I know London very well and enjoy living in this vibrant city. I work as a graphic designer from home, producing a variety of work for print along with websites. I play tennis and cricket, and go for long country walks at weekends outside of the cricket season. I try to stay fit and healthy and cook using fresh ingredients, but I do enjoy a glass or two some evenings. I come from a large family with many cousins in and around London.
