Large room to let in shared house. Private room with lock and key in house with very clean shared kitchen and bathroom.
I have available a very large, clean and comfortable room with fast WIFI and cable TV, all included.
The home is located in travel zone 2, so you'll have easy access to all London has to offer. You'll be close to all transport links and many shops and markets.
Myself and partner Les will be happy to give you any insider tips on how to enjoy your time here.
We have two very cheeky cats and a tankful of happy fish, who are forever adding to our household.
The garden is south facing and wonderful for a relaxing time on a hot sunny day.
I also have a smaller double room to let in the house, which may be more reasonable if you are travelling on a budget. Please feel free to check advailability on that also and get in touch if you have any questions.
Guest with have access to their own private lockable room and a shared kitchen and bathroom, which are accessible at all times. However, I do ask that guests only cook and shower between the hours of 7am and 11pm
Interaction with Guests
I tend to work very long hours, so only normally around early in the morn and late in the evening and most weekends when I do all the cleaning! However, I'm contactable 24/7....
The street that we live is nice and peaceful. However, I love the fact that at the end of the street there's an abundance of shops of every kind and it's so easy to get around and about in London from here.
Finsbury Park is the closest tube station. There's also so many buses that stop at the end of the street and will take you direct to the West End and all it's attractions
I do have a list of house rules. All mainly common sense things, nothing too drastic! Main one is NO SMOKING. The rest are all pretty flexible.
It's a really great experience living in Alison's house. The position is close to subway station within 15 mins walking distance. Alison is warm hearted and helped me a lot. Really miss two adorable cats in Alison's house.
Alison and Les were very friendly and welcoming. The room was very spacious and comfortable with large TV, sofa and comfy bed.
Location is ideal for both tube and buses and took less than 30 minutes to West End.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Alison qui a été très gentille et accueillante. La petite maison est magnifique avec un petit jardin très agréable. La salle de bain est commune mais cela ne nous a pas du tout gêné. Tout est très propre et bien aménagé. La chambre est très spacieuse, conforme aux photos. La maison est très bien située car finsbury est une station située sur deux des principales lignes de métro, donc très pratique. Plein de commerces aux alentours. Je conseille fortement ce bnb.
Merci à Alison pour son accueil!
We loved it here!!!
We got to Alison and Les' place after a LONG flight from Los Angeles. It was lovely to collapse into the huge comfortable bed in an extremely clean and homey room. We quickly made friends with their two adorable cats. Although I never met Alison personally, she was lovely over the phone. Jesse and I spent a long time talking to Les - he was great and very interesting to talk to!
The neighborhood is diverse and interesting with a lot of buses around. About 10-15 minute walk to the nearest tube station but we figured out the buses pretty quickly. An all-night Tesco is nearby which came in handy when I was jet-lagged and starving at random hours of the night.
Some notes: Alison takes a bit longer to respond via email but always picks up her phone. There are a few rooms of other guests staying there so you might be sharing a bathroom. We had no problem with this and bonded with the other guests, but it's just good to know.
Overall. we loved our stay here. Would stay again anytime!
My stay at Alison's place was fantastic. The room is huge and clean and the bed is great. Getting to Finsbury Park St. from there is just a 10 minute walk. Top choice. Totally recommended!!!
Our hosts made us feel welcome and gave us a tour upon arrival. The room was large and comfortable with plenty of storage and a place to work. The surrounding neighbourhood was filled with shops, cafes and restaurants and was very vibrant. We enjoyed our stay with Alison and Les.
All aspects of the description were accurate. However, when we read about the shared bathroom, we had imagined that we might be sharing a bathroom with those who had rented the smaller room next to ours. We were surprised to discover that the one bathroom was to be shared by the home owners as well as the guests in three rented bedrooms.
Alison's place was easy to find and made to feel welcome on arrival.
I was quickly shown around the usual (bedroom, kitchen & bathroom) amenities which were all very clean and tidy. The room was a great size and the bed was really comfortable. Alison was a lovely host. I would definitely visit again.
