The Space

Get a great night’s sleep on this comfortable double bed in a calm restful apartment that is Architect designed and freshly renovated. The room sleeps two people in a double bed. The apartment is located on the 2nd and 3rd floor (accessible by stairs) in a small safe and secure building. There is a guest bathroom (bath with shower) and a separate toilet room. The bathroom is for exclusive use by guests.

We provide fresh towels, bed sheets, hair dryer and essential bathroom items. Steam iron and ironing board are available on request.

We also provide local area guide, central London maps, tube maps and your more than welcome to browse through our many guide books of London. We also have lots of great tips and tricks for London and are always on hand to help out with planning your time in London.

We also provide a simple self - serve breakfast, tea and coffee.

When we are home on the weekends we like to start the day with a yummy breakfast and you are very welcome to join us. We’ve spent many weekend mornings enjoying breakfast and coffee with our guests sharing travel stories, life experiences and or helping our guests plan their day or stay in London.

Guest Access

We are on the second floor (access by stairs) of a small secure building in a safe area.

Guests have access to the guest bedroom, bathroom (exclusive for guests), living room, kitchen and balcony.

If you would like to cook please keep it simple and relatively odourless : ). Please note we do not have a microwave.

The balcony is perfectly oriented to enjoy the sun during every season. The balcony faces a lovely big tree and during summer we enjoy the subtle scent of star jasmine that lines the balconies. The space is perfect to enjoy a morning coffee or light meal.

Interaction with Guests

We love talking to our guests but if you prefer a quiet evening we also respect that!

While you are staying with us you are a member of the household so do not feel that you have to stay in your room. We are available should you have any questions and are happy to assist you in making the most of your stay in London whether that is to assist you with directions or helping put together an itinerary.

Upon arrival we will show you around, provide you information about the local area including the extensive transport options available to you. We will also give you maps for the immediate area and the city so you can make the most of your trip to London. We begin the weekend with breakfast and you are welcome to join us.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located on a quiet tree lined North London street close to local amenities and public transport. This is a residential area in (zone 2) London, it is a quiet location surrounded by nice local areas like Tufnell Park, Crouch End, Finsbury park and Highgate.

We can recommend many good places to eat, shop and see in the area. It is a great place to stay after a long days sightseeing, working or studying. I recommend our apartment to those that would like to get a locals perspective on living in London that is 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of this amazing city (centre of London).

There are interesting and beautiful places to visit in the area that are off the ‘beaten track’ such as Woodland Trail, Emirates stadium, Highgate cemetery, Camden Markets, Finsbury Park, gorgeous Crouch End and the green spaces of Highgate and Hampstead heath.

Getting Around

There are great transport links including the Tube, Overground train and many bus routes. We are in zone 2 and travel time to Central London is under 30 minutes.
Underground lines:
Northern Line: Archway Station - 8 Minutes walk
Victoria Line: Finsbury Park -13 minutes walk or 8 minutes by bus
Piccadilly line: Finsbury Park.
Overground: Upper Holloway - 6 minutes walk
Buses: (phone number hidden)

For more travel information please use the TFL website and I highly recommend the citymapper app for planning travel routes.

We are easily reachable from all London airports.

The guest bathroom is for sole use by guests.
