Double bed in trendy Islington!

The Space

*Hi there. Just to let any prospective bookers know, I am actually in the process of selling my flat. So good news, if you decide to stay, the cleaner will be in twice a week instead of the usual once ;) but I will be looking for extra considerate guests who don't mind potentially having strangers have a look around their bedroom/the flat, during their visit. Any questions or concerns, just message me! Thanks*

Double bedroom in a ground floor garden flat, one minutes walk from busy Upper Street, Islington. The flat has exposed brick walls, wooden floors and a fireplace. It has its own front door and private south facing back garden, so there's lots of natural light.

The bedroom has a small double bed (not king-size). There is a large kitchen and open plan living room, which you are very welcome to use. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower (no bath). I have a snow white cat called Apple who is extremely friendly and sweet. She is fluffy and indoor only so expect some cat hairs.

Bed linen, towels, hair dryer and GHD's with heat resistant mat are provided.

The flat is located halfway between Angel and Highbury & Islington stations. It's close to bars, restaurants, theatres, cafes, boutiques, gyms, yoga and pilates studios, art galleries, cinemas, pubs, live music, shopping centre, parks.

There is ample public transport: Buses, tubes, overground, cabs. It's 10 minutes on the tube to Oxford Circus, 12 minutes to Victoria station and Gatwick Express. 3 minutes on the tube to Kings Cross and Eurostar to Paris.

I work in Soho, usually 8-7 but always do my best to leave a bit late, get home a bit early so as to welcome you and give you a key

  • We stayed with Jude the second week of the London 2012 Olympics and enjoyed it a lot!

    Unfortunately Jude had a major leakage in her appartement the week before we came and as all the floors had to be removed, she couldn't offer us the original room. But through a friend she arranged a different appartement just 1 street from her place and we got to stay there.
    During our stay we were out a lot ofcourse, going to the Olympic events, but Jude was very friendly when we saw her. She helped us with our washing and brought us some nice croissants for Sunday breakfast.

    In all : a very pleasent stay which we can recomment to everyone.

  • Found flat directly and Jude was waiting for us. Very nice and easy flat. There had been water damage issues from the extreme rain the prior weeks and Jude was in the process of renovation and gave up her bedroom to us. Even though she was in the process of packing to get the flat ready for the work ,everything was smooth and pleasant. We are sorry we didn't have more time to spend with her as she is interesting and we hit it off well, great, quite location and we plan on making this our London place from now on.

  • What a host! Jude was there for me all way from the moment I arrive in London. Her communication was the best. Her house is in an amazing location. Islington is such a trendy neighbourhood, filled with plenty of artisan shops from home styling, antiques to food, Islington has got it all. What a neighbourhood and the architecture is beautiful. The world famous Ottolenghi is here. You all have to experience to food, the display and the style. And of course , Camden Passage for the antiques lovers. Jude's home is immaculate and spotless. Perfect for the occasion. Jude is a gracious host, knows London like the back her hand and her recommendations were excellent. I will be back.

  • Once again a wonderful stay with Jude & Apple. I thoroughly recommend staying here - it's a lovely apartment in a great location and the hostess is so lovely and accommodating.

Hi I work in marketing in the tech world. Worked for the worlds largest search engine for a long time, Dublin, London and California and now am with an up-and-coming start-up in Soho London. I love living in Islington with all the bars, cafes, shops and things to do. I have one cat, Apple who is snow white and who I got from the ISPCA in Dublin. Been living in London for 3 years and recently bought my flat hence renting out the guest room to help with the mortgage :) I love all things tech, design, architecture and music.
