Robin’s flat could not be lovelier. It was clean, welcoming, and has everything you’d need for a comfortable stay. Robin is a great host, responded promptly to emails, took the time to show me how me how everything worked when I arrived, and has great tips for her wonderful neighborhood and the city. I had a perfect week here. Thanks Robin!
Robin a été très disponible pour remettre les clés à notre fille, afin de faciliter notre arrivée.
endroit très central, tel que décrit
Possibilités de rayonner partout dans Londres.
cuisine très fonctionnelle qui nous permis de faire repas facilement.
We had a great time staying at Robin's perfectly located and lovely furnished place - it truly made the week unforgettable and we will for sure be back!
We really enjoyed staying at Robin's house. The property was ideally located in the centre of Upper St, Islington. Easy walking distance to Angel and Highbury & Islington tube stations and the best of Upper Streets restaurants and shops. The house easily accommodated the four of us and Robin was more than happy for one extra to stay as well. The fully equipped kitchen made it easy for us to make a meal in. The only downfall would be the street noise on the weekends, as there is a bar right on the corner of the lane. Lovely tidy and clean apartment, would highly recommend to anyone looking for a home away from home.
We had a wonderful stay here in London! My husband and 2 daughters (10 and 6 years) loved Robin's house - it is centrally located close to Tube (underground) and the Islington area is full of places to eat, shop, wander and supermarkets if you want to cook for yourself. We had 8 nights and could have stayed longer! The house is well equipped with everything you need, and Robin gave us detailed information about places to go and everything about the house. The sofa bed was great for 1 child and the blow up mattress for the other. The master bed was very comfortable and the heating was fabulous on chilly mornings. The water was hot, the kitchen was great, and we felt safe, secure and at home. We would highly recommend Robin and her beautiful home. Thank you so much Robin!!!
What I should write here?? I would say any words can not describe how nice this place it and how happy we are to stay here in Robin's house. As I saw all the positive review before I would love to say that I totally agree with every words the guest had been written. From my own opinion, the most important part that we have to admire is the owner. Robin s very nice and kind person even my English s not fluent enough, she s also try to understand and answer every question. Her delightful n cheerful personality makes us feel happy and feeling like being at home at the relatives house. Second of all, the place 's location and furniture design plus decorations are extremely beautiful. From her lifestyle as being an artist make us enjoy this house the most. You can fine any chic n hip stuff decorate around in every corner. The quality of electronic stuffs r the best my mom love it and the most significant thing s is located in very nice area , safe place and we love all the restaurant bars coffee shop their.We stayed there for a week and visited more than 8 shops n still have a lot more to go. I think I should stay for a months to finish all the restaurant around here. It located near Islington town-hall, underground and bus stop very convenience to go to any area in London or downtown. If I get a chance to buy a house in London I definitely find place in this area. 7 days in Robin s house r nice and wonderful my mom n dad have a very nice sleep in the master bedroom. As my mom she s not use to cold weather, the heater here just work so perfect to keep her warm all the trip. Nothing can compare to this place, I would be disappoint if I chose another place to stay but luckily I chose here ^________^
Thank you again Robin
From me (Som) Mandy mom n dad
Ps. It would be better if Mandy can write some comment but she s now quite busy with the legal work but don't forget to let s us know if you come to Thailand. You can stay over at our house or at least let have a nice meal together. With love n kind regards Som
I didn't think that perhaps one of the most stressful weeks ever would have been also perhaps one of my loveliest, and luckiest. Robin was such a gracious and attentive host, and I was indeed very fortunate to have had the pleasure of staying in her beautiful home. It was tastefully decorated, not unlike how I would like my own home to be furnished! I instantly felt at ease.
Tucked away off one of the main roads in Islington, it was a charming retreat from the hustle and bustle, yet conveniently located, with easy access on foot and public transit. Cabs were easily hailed, and there were great shops and restaurants right around the corner. Couldn't have asked for a lovelier property or better location.
I enjoyed my stay very much, and would highly recommend Robin and her charming home to anyone looking for a wonderful experience in London.
About the Host, Robin
I love London - and this house is in a great position as a base to explore its many delights.
Being a freelance Director means I work away quite often and would prefer the house was being enjoyed by guests as much as I love living in it....
