About this listing
Chilled out, cosy and friendly London pad. Converted Victorian terrace gives a real London feel and with all mod cons. Great cafes, restaurants, shops and excellent transport links from Finsbury Park station, all just five minutes away.
Pleasant, good size, light and airy double room perfect to retire to after a day at work, study or being out and about. Oxford Circus is a tube ride away! The apartment is on split-levels with the two bedrooms on the top floor; and the kitchen, bathroom and living room on the second floor. I love art so there are prints, posters and paintings around the place. There is access to a desk space in the apartment (please ask).
Cosy and spacious living room, hygienic bathroom, the kitchen for light cooking (inc. microwave), also use of the washer and dryer. Then of course the bedroom pictured, with the (memory foam mattress, i.e. very comfy) double bed. A good night's sleep is important after sightseeing in Piccadilly Circus or Trafalgar Square. There is also a TV in the room. Bonus!
Interaction with guests
The flat is occupied by the host and two friendly cats and the room is available immediately for a single female or male (no couples). Professional, student or traveller. Ideally, friendly, independent, tidy and respectful. If coming from abroad as a tourist there's lots to do in London and the local area for all budgets - Buckingham Palace to Brick Lane Market!
We have great, urban-village-like local amenities. There are excellent cafes, restaurants, and pubs in the nearby vicinity. A supermarket and independent greengrocers for food shopping and also hair salons, barbers and the long standing New Beacon Bookshop all located along Stroud Green Road. Crouch End, Primrose Hill, Regents Park, Hampstead Heath and Angel Islington with the Sunday Farmer's Market are all 20 minutes away by bus, half that by car. Please click on the Guidebook link below to get started.
The flat is located 5-7 minutes from Finsbury Park tube and train station - 15 mins to Oxford Circus, 10 mins from Kings Cross St Pancras on the Victoria and Piccadilly lines; also the London Overground from Highbury. Excellent transport links for getting around London (personally, I love it)!
Other things to note
~ Please get in touch with bookings shorter than 3 days. I'm happy to consider a long weekend.
~ You airbnb profile photo and bio (even if just a short one) is appreciated. I cannot guarantee to confirm your booking otherwise.
Friendly, respectful and full of information about the local area and London. I'm a chilled out host who lets guests get on with their holiday or stay in peace, but always available for a chat or a local pick up from station or info on getting around town or the area. Two cats live here too. Nice cats.
Five things I cannot live without are my MacBook Pro, my iPhone, poetry books and novels, fresh fruit and veg for juicing. I like the sights and sounds of London, particularly South Bank, theatre and spoken word poetry nights, the cinema and the parks. I love Kenya, Nairobi, Mombasa and the Masai Mara. I like Spain such as Barcelona, Madrid, Granada, the mountains of Andalusia and the Alpujarras. Ibiza's fun, even without the clubbing as the beaches are brilliant. I also like St Lucia, Guyana and New Zealand. Would love to travel to Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, New York, LA, maybe Miami, Tanzania, Thailand.
