The studio comprises a large living room / bedroom with an additional 'Master Bedroom' area separated by a partition. The large window is facing the front garden of the house with greenery, and a fabulous view of the beautiful Georgian architecture of Belsize Park. In the bedroom area you will also find a large wardrobe for your clothes and an extra sofa which opens up into another sofa bed which sleeps one.
A desk and chair facing the window is great for catching up on some work if you need to.
In the 'living room' area there's an enormous corner sofa which also opens up as a double bed. It's ideal for lounging on at the end of long days out and about in London.
The flat screen TV in the living room is connected to Virgin TV, giving you access to hundreds of channels.
A vintage 1950's coffee table and a 100% wool Habitat rug adds to the comfort and cosiness of the apartment.
The bathroom is a white shower room with white ceramic tiles, a shower cubicle and toilet and sink. Lots of white luxurious cotton towels are provided for your comfort. Hot water is constant and the pressure is good.
The kitchen, which is in a separate space from the living room has a full set of pots and pans, an electric hob, a microwave oven, a toaster, a fridge and an electric kettle. It is large enough to also contain a small dining table and chairs which is helpful for breakfast or for feeding the children. This table can be brought out of the kitchen and opened up to allow more comfortable dining if required.
Close to the entrance is a small but clean and functional shower room where there's always plenty of hot running water.
The apartment is all yours to enjoy, any food in the apartment is there for your use.
Your bedding and towels will be put out for you, unless absolutely necessary, I appreciate it if guests do not use the extra bedding and / or towels in the cupboards as this is for us to use when preparing the flat for our nest guests.
Interaction with guests
I've been an Airbnb host for over five years now. I always try to meet my guests on arrival or shortly after, making sure you are happy with everything. I live close by and am available in minutes if any problem develops - very hands on.
A few days before your arrival I will send through to you a PDF document with all the information you need to access the apartment easily and independently. Unless there are problems or you would like to meet me, I do not always meet you but I am very present, communicating via Airbnb or to check that all is well and find out if there's anything I can do to ensure your visit is a perfect experience.
I look forward to hearing from you, and to hosting you in my flat.
On your doorstep you will find Belsize Park village, with it's great selection of fabulous shops, world class restaurants and lovely and friendly local cafes. You are also minutes away (walking) from the buzzing Finchley Road home to shops, food shops, the O2 entertainment centre (with a wonderful cinema). The Finchley Road is also where the buses from Luton Airport and Stansted Airport stop so if you are flying in from either of those airports, just take the Nationwide bus and make sure you get off at Finchley Road, you are then only 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
Slightly further afield, but still within easy and delightful walking distance is the world famous Hampstead Heath, a unique and historical urban park. It is also close to the historical neighbourhood of Hampstead and only a short bus ride away from Camden Town, with it's famous weekend markets.
It really is a five star area, it is one of the most desirable London neighbourhoods.

The flat is located in the ground floor of a very upmarket Georgian building. We ask that you do not smoke in the apartment or on the door step because the people living in the flats above are super sensitive.

An Airbnb host for over six years, I love having new people come and stay at my fabulous flat in Belsize Park, Archway and the City of London. My guests are always delighted with the accomodation and I enjoy seeing their faces as they come into the flat and see the standard of accommodation for their holiday. Many of my guests come again and again. Make sure you book early because I have nearly full occupancy all year round.
