A beautiful peaceful oasis close to everything that the best of London offers. The courtyard was a delight for our week of sunny weather. We didn't cook at at all as so many good value places on your doorstep however the kitchen was well equipped and Chris left us plenty of supplies. Comfy bed and couch and place was exactly as described. Chris was helpful and always replied to our questions. A great airbnb experience.
great place, close to the tube and the huge variety of restaurants etc in islington / clerkenwell. kitchen and bath very modern and clean, spacious, well lit, and it was great to have the morning sun come in the four french doors that constitute the end wall of the living room. comfortable bed and couch.
one of my top airbnb experiences.
We had a fantastic months stay at the Garden flat in Clerkenwell.
Chris was and excellent host and made us feel very welcome. He is a really nice guy.
Apartment is in a great location and is warm and secure.
Would highly recommend.
The apartment looks exactly as on the pictures. It's really cosy, I felt I was at home. It is actually really the home of Chris, so don't expect a sterile serviced apartment. ;-) The location is perfect, you have underground and plenty of bus lines to go anywhere.
We were welcomed by one of Chris friends, Hollie, who was really nice although she didn't tell us to close the lower lock of the door which I found strange and asked Chris in an email.
The TV/ home movie system is a bit complex, but I figured it out with Chris via email.
Wifi was working well.
The bed is really comfortable, there is an ensuite bathroom and a separate toilet.
The only thing was that the apartment was not cleaned before our arrival, because the cleaning lady didn't show up. Can happen..
If you are a light sleeper, this place is not for you. Unfortunately the bedroom is looking at the street and not so well isolated.
All in all I can absolutely recommend this place and will surely come back next time when I'm in London.
Chris was a great host. He was an excellent communicator and everything went very smoothly even though he was out of London for the duration of our stay. Deftly handled!
The apartment was excellent, clean and well presented. Outdoor access was a real bonus. Great water pressure too!
The neighbourhood was exactly what we wanted, a great mixture of safe and interesting. Great access to good food, coffee and markets. And only 20 minutes to walk to Soho.
Chris' apartment has every requirement for a very comfortable stay. We would stay again without hesitation. The location is perfect for exploring London with many transport options within minutes to all locations.

Chris is a warm, generous host, who was extremely accommodating and flexible to my check in /out needs. The flat is exceptional in every way - fantastic location, superbly comfortable, with everything and anything one might need to feel like you're at home.
The natural light and large outdoor deck area make this a stand-out place to stay in London - creating a spacious, relaxed environment. The property, both indoor and outdoor, also gives a real sense of safety and security, which I personally found comforting on my travels.
I would - and will- highly recommend Chris and his flat to anyone, single or couple, looking for a place to call home for a short or longer stay, in a delightful and convenient part of London.
My wife and I stayed in Chris's apartment for three months over winter. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is exactly as in the photos - immaculately clean (also thanks to Chris's excellent cleaner), warm, quiet, secure, full of natural light, with very new fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms. The bed is a queen - very comfortable. We had no problems over the course of our stay. The kitchen had all we needed to cook regularly each week. There is no microwave - but this wasn't a problem for us as there are many eateries around. He has a great little book collection which we took advantage of.
The description of the location and nearby amenities on airbnb is also spot-on. There are large supermarkets 5-7 minutes walk away opposite Angel Station, and 5 minutes down St Johns St there is a Tesco and Waitrose. There are a host of good restaurants and cafes on Upper St, St Johns St, and particularly good fare and coffee in the pretty Exmouth Market - only 3-4 minutes walk from the apartment. In addition to nearby Angel Station, there are very handy bus routes on Buses 19 and 38 which can be caught from Saddler's Wells Theatre (2 mins walk) every 2-3 minutes and these can take you to the theatres along Shaftesbury Ave, past Chinatown, Soho and close to Covent Garden, the British Museum and much more.
Chris was a perfect host and lovely guy. Before our arrival we appreciated his swift responses and honest communication. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. During our stay he made contact every now and then to make sure we were not having any problems. We will definitely try to stay at Chris' place again next time we are in London! Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time at Chris's apartment. He worked closely with us before arriving and checked in regularly during our stay. Chris's apartment has everything you need: a comfortable bed, a fully stocked kitchen, a large living room and even an excellent grill. The location cannot be beat. We really enjoyed the area. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for an excellent home away from home in London.
The rental is tidy and clean and Chris is a great host. The communication was great and he was very accommodating. With a great location and close access to transportation the flat is perfect for exploring London. Also, if you get a little nice weather, the back deck is a great feature.
Chris was the ideal guest. Before leaving, he folded the bedding (even though not requested), and washed his dishes (also not requested). Upon meeting him, I was impressed with his politeness and generally pleasant, thoughtful demeanor. He also seemed trustworthy with a strong sense of respect for others. I have invited him back whenever he comes to the area!
Chris stayed at my place in Hakuba along with his family and they were all wonderful and friendly. They left the house nice and neat, and it was very easy to get the house cleaned up. Thanks for booking at my place!
Chris was a fantastic and great guest.
Chris just stayed in our apt with some friends for a couple of days - or at least they say the did, cause we can hardly see any sign of them staying here at all! The apartment was left nice and clean, bedlinen nicely stacked and cups and dishes washed up by hand (even though we have a dishwasher).
Communication prior to the stay was quick and seamless, and Chris and his friends were on time and very pleasant. I can highly recommend opening your home to Chris.
Chris was a lovely guest. His forthrightness combined with his warm personality made making arrangements easy. Both he and his partner were charming when we met. They treated my apartment and possessions with the utmost respect. I would gladly have them stay again.
I would rate Chris Turner 5 stars out of 5. He treated our apt as if it was his own...left it in perfect shape...and was easy to deal with...
