Great check-in experience
90% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
My home is a perfect base for work or sightseeing (where possible) but not a party house. Midway between Camden Town and Islington Upper Street. In normal circumstances these are two buzzing areas of north London. Good selection of takeaway food and coffee within minutes of my house. Kentish Town’s great pubs and restaurants are starting to open again. The regenerated Kings Cross and Coal Drop Yard areas are within 30 mins walk or a short bus ride. For peace and fresh air, try Hampstead Heath.

The space
My place is great for solo travellers as I have two cheerful rooms with double beds, desks and storage, both single occupancy. I DON'T OFFER KITCHEN FACILITIES, but you can make drinks in your room and keep your snacks in the fridge. My paved garden is lovely if the weather's good. You'll share the recently renovated shower/WC room with another Airbnb guest, who might not be of the same gender. Please use headphones if you listen to music or similar. Come and go as you please of course, but please no guests without permission and no smoking in the house or garden. If you’re travelling with someone else, why not check out my other listing and have a room each? https://abnb.me/Pj3EOXlmYZ

Guest access
You are welcome to make yourself hot drinks (I provide tea and coffee), keep your snacks in the fridge and use the washing machine (I don’t have a dryer but there is a drying rack in your room). I DON'T OFFER COOKING FACILITIES, but can supply any dishes etc that you need. My rooms upstairs are private.

Other things to note
I have two AirBnB guest rooms on the ground floor, with a shared shower room. If the room next door is booked, please be considerate about noise. For this reason the rooms are only single occupancy. I'm new to hosting and appreciate any feedback.

Greater London, England, United Kingdom

There are many good local food options. Within five minutes there is an Italian Deli, an excellent bakery, a South Indian vegan restaurant and a wholefood shop with a takeaway counter. Although lots of fun areas of London are within easy reach, I'm in a quiet residential street with a lot of trees and a communal open space behind my garden.

I've travelled a lot and enjoy welcoming solo travellers to my home near Kentish Town in London. I'm happy to chat about all that this great city has to offer. I state below that I speak French, but it's not fluent. I can also try with Italian.

During your stay
I work mostly from home (I'm an actor and freelance editor) so I'm around a lot, especially in the daytime. I'm happy to chat, though I'll respect your privacy and can social distance. I love sharing my experience of London, where I've lived for 30 years. On the rare occasions I'm away, I'm usually in the UK and I'll be able to deal with any issues quickly.
