A great and modern apartment in a quintessentially English part of town. A very safe neighbourhood, enjoy local pubs, restaurants and shops with great connections to central London by bus or tube.
I have a spare double bedroom in a luxury apartment with it's OWN private bathroom located in a very trendy part of London. The room is fully furnished with a desk and chair, double bed, (there is an extra single bed available as well), builtin wardrobes, chest of drawers, it's own telephone (free international and national phonecalls), and comes with its own brand new bathroom with a glass walkin shower.
The rest of the flat is modern, newly refurbished and renovated with entirely wooden parquet flooring, a large modern kitchen, a large living room with a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable/sky plus satellite and large, new couches to chill out on after a hectic day in London! And of course there is high speed internet access with unlimited downloads.
The location is awesome - a trendy part of London with a lot of actors and musicians living around here. James McAvoy, David Tennant (Dr Who) etc. The apartment is a 5 min walk from loads of bars, awesome restaurants, clubs, shops (you can get some cool bargains here at non-tourist prices), and the major supermarkets. It is also a 5 min walk from the bus stop that takes you directly to the West End, Trafalgar Square King's Cross/St Pancras, Euston and many central tube stations. If you prefer, Highgate station is a 15 min walk away, but the bus is awesome and quick with loudspeakers announcing the stops - and a great way to experience the city. The buses are 24 hours so you can come and go from Leicester Square and the West End at any time of the day or night! Also take a stroll to Hampstead Heath, Waterlow Park or Highgate Cemetery to see the gothic tombs of famous people - from Karl Marx to the Dickens family.
This would suit anyone travelling through London who wants to see a bit of authentic London life with its pubs, bars, people and local living, and still have wicked access to the west end and all the sights. Basically this is where Londoners live!
So to recap, included is:
High speed internet
Cable/Sky plus Satellite TV
Breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits
A huge English Garden to enjoy complete with foxes, owls and squirrels - your bedroom looks onto it.
Plenty of maps, tour information for other parts of the UK, Stonehenge, Bath etc as well as info on London's best attractions.
There is a washer dryer available for laundry at a cost of £6 per load.
I'm a 27 year old professional actor. I'm often around to give some tips on London, what's hot to see in the theatre - where to go etc - I can also get discounts on top seats in some shows so be sure to ask me.
If you're interested, please let me know a bit about yourself and when and how long you would like the room for. Please note there are three flights of stairs to the apartment.
Look forward to hearing from you.
The whole apartment!
I may not be around as I am often away for work, but always on the end of an email or phone line.
Great restaurants, pubs, incredibly safe and quintessentially English!
Buses are 5 minutes from the front door - buses to central London! Also the tube (subway station) is a 16 minute walk away and the b
I was super happy with my stay at Rowan's place. It lived up to his description perfectly. And the private bath is new and great! Couldn't have been happier.

Great place, clean, good location to buses which take you to straight to central london. Didn't meet Rowan but checking in / out was straight forward.
Rowans place was ideal., very spacious, has all the amenities you need, very clean, with good wifi. A great location, close to the broadway and the near buses are very frequent, every 2-3 minutes most times, short journey to the tube. Crouch End though is a great discovery of a London borough, all you need in food, drink and entertainment. I would highly recommend Crouch End and Rowans place.
Das Apt. ist wunderbar!
Grün grün und nochmals (website hidden)ühmorgens kann man Füchse im Garten beobachten - eine Oase der Ruhe nach dem Trubel in der Stadt.
Die Entfernung ist moderat - die Anbindung phantastisch - das Viertel ist freundlich, angenehm und lebenswert.
Alle Formalitäten regelten sich einwandfrei und die Kommunikation mit Rowan war bestens.
Was will man mehr!
P.S.: Raucher sollten sich allerdings überlegen ob sie sich dem Stess aussetzen wollen GANZ OFFENSICHTLICH IM GANZEN HAUS und selbst auf der Strasse, unerwünscht zu sein!
Das hat mit durchaus zu schaffen gemacht.
Quiet and green surroundigs. Very nice appartement in a nice neighberhood.
Our stay in the apartment of Rowan was great.
The apartment is big, really great and clean.
The bathroom and the room are very comfortable too.
We could't see the neighborhood very well. And the only negative point is that respect is far from the sights, which complicates if you have just a few days.
But in general it was really nice.
Hermoso depto, ubicado en una zona residencial increíble (aunque un poco alejado del centro). Es un depto muy cómodo y limpio.
A Rowan practicamente no lo vimos, pero siempre estuvo presente y bien predispuesto cuando lo necesitamos.
We had a very nice time staying in this apartment. The apartment was in a great location a little bit outside the main city chaos and included a very nice little town within 5 minutes walking full of second hand shops, markets, and local eateries. Rowan was never even there we saw him the first day to get the keys and after that it was our own full apartment. Easy access to the tube and buses and if you are coming back from the city late night the 24 hour bus is very close too. Would recommend to others. Only negative I can think of was the shower was a bit uncomfortable and we were unable to switch the temperature from HOT to warm.
Enjoy the location and place, feels like a really safe neighborhood, we actually always went back late at night. The tube station is most accessible to the places we need travel to. We had a few mishaps with the bathroom and shower temperature as well, as we accidentally adjusted the room temperature while trying to fix the shower temperature! The pressure flush in the toilet is not very strong as well, try not to stuff too much paper in it! Mysterious light in Rowan's bathroom. Helped throw some expired products until we realized we shouldn't have touch them! Overall, Rowan is helpful and patience to clarify and settle any problems and questions. First Airbnb experience and a good one! Thanks once again! =)
