We are away from 17th May until 7th June so you will have the flat to yourself- with help nearby should you need it!
We would prefer stays of 4 nights or more...

We are 2 mins walk from lots of buses to Waterloo, London Bridge, the City, Kings Cross and most central locations.
We are 12 min walk form Archway underground station (Northern Line- 15 mins to Leicester Square) and 15 min walk to Piccadilly Line (Holloway Road station- 15 mins to Covent Garden/Piccadilly Circus). There are also lots of shops and an Odeon cinema less than 10 minutes walk away.
We are a young married creative couple who both grew up in London so can offer lots of advice and suggestions should you need any! I speak Italian and we both speak some French.
Private double bedroom. Open plan kitchen/living room and bathroom all shared with guests.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as the guests enjoy.
No Smoking, no pets (although it's worth asking- you never know!) and we would prefer you not to bring friends back without arranging with us first... There are no other rules that I can think of except things like being respectful etc which (almost) all our guests have always been! Basically the only strict rule is no smoking and we have a garden for that!
You are very welcome to make use of the communal areas, relax and work in the living room etc. but please leave any personal belongings in your room when you are out.
We had an amazing time in Jess and Phil's house!!! Although we didn't meet them Margaret, phil's mom, was waiting for us at the house and showed and explained everything to us!!! Thank you very much for letting us stay at your house!!! Hope we could come.back soon!!! Noe and Nico!!!
Jess and Phil were very easy to talk with from the start from booking to staying at their beautiful apartment. I asked them if it would be ok if I could wait a week before booking and this was no problem. Although we didn't get to meet jess and Phil they were there the entire time we needed them with any help. We met Phil's mother at the apartment and she was so nice and helpful. It was a stressfree stay. Great location for the flat 10 minutes from piccadilly line and we had a great time in pubs and bars on collodian road and Holloway Road. Newaagents and shops around the corner from the flat.
They even let us keep our bags at the flat until late 4/5pm on the day of leaving which was a big help. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Although we didn't get the chance to meet Jess and Phil, staying at their flat was a dream. It is a beautiful apartment with everything you might need for your stay in London. It is located about 10 minutes walk from the tube station which is very convenient. They provided lots of maps and suggestions of things to do while in the city. If you're looking for a quiet place to call home during your stop in London, definitely consider Phil and Jess.
Jessica y Phil nos dejaron con la boca abierta de lo guapa que estaba la casa, limpia y completa !!
Fue maravilloso pasar allí los ocho días que pasamos, el barrio era realmente tranquilo y tenias todo cerca.
Nos dejaron comida y eso fue una gran detalle.
La casa esta totalmente equipada y funciona todo genial.
We were lovely welcomed by the hosts mother. She introduced us to the location. The house is warm and nicely shaped, lot of books, paintings, a piano, and a small but very marvelous garden. Sorry, Jess and Phil, we didn't maw the lawn :-).
You cannot image, how quiet you can sleep in this place. Even if Islington is still London city, there is nothing to hear in the lovely guest room with the window towards the garden.
The hosts prepared a binder with all information, even with hints for some nice places to visit nearby. Thanks a lot.
We really enjoyed our stay at Phil's and Jessica's, the apartment is beautiful and the location is easy to travel around from. Phil and Jessica are very nice, overall we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely stay with them again :)
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour ( 4 nuits) chez Jessica et Phil. La situation de l'appartement est parfaite car facilement accessible par les transports en commun (surtout le bus). Si vous souhaitez visiter à pieds Londres, la maison est à 30mn de Camden Town et à moins d'une heure des sites touristiques ... sinon il y a bus et métro à disposition.
L'accueil a été parfait. La maison est typiquement anglaise et arrangée avec beaucoup de goût ( très propre aussi).
Nous recommandons vraiment cette adresse.
