We can't think of enough lovely things to say about our visit. Everything about our visit was perfect. The place felt like home and Joe was careful to check on us regularly. Also, the incredibly detailed advice on everything from transport to local restaurants made settling in to the area very easy.
The flat itself is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. There is plenty to explore in the neighbourhood and excellent transport makes it fairly easy to get to other areas of the city. We were very sad to leave, and we miss being looked after by two beautiful cats ;)
Joe's apartment was wonderful and we truly enjoyed our stay. The apartment itself is lovely, with a great, very well equiped kitchen and a gorgeous garden and patio, as well as comfortable space for sleeping, dining, reading and relaxing. It is easily located close to the tube as well as buses, and we really enjoyed exploring the area, including turnpike lane and nearby crouch end and stoke newington. joe was a terrific host - providing all the information we needed and being extremely responsive and kind. would definitely stay again!
A charming flat, that is perfect for 2 persons if you want to stay a bit outside of the city centre with close connection to the tube. We enjoyed relaxing days due to its nice little garden and fell in love with the 2 cute cats :)
We loved our 5 day stay at Joe and Aurora's!!!
First of all, Joe was absolutely terrific about answering all my questions and responded to my every email.
Because of his excellent correspondence, when we flew in from Alaska, landing at Heathrow, we knew the easiest way to get to the flat. Get on the Tube's Piccadilly line and an hour or so later we were in Tottenham! An easy walk to Raleigh St.
Joe and Aurora were there to greet us and get us acquainted with the flat. Both of them are lovely people!
The flat is charming and has everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Very welcoming and homey. They had even put flowers on the dining room table.
Our son and his girlfriend joined us for a few days which is the reason we had chosen Joe's place. We took the bedroom (very comfy bed) and they took the living room with the fold out couch (no complaints). The flat does accommodate 4 adults but that will force you to be very efficient with the space. Fortunately we had been given drawer space in the bedroom so we were able to unpack the essentials and put our bags in the dining room as the bedroom is small.
The cats were very sweet and friendly but also very curious about food preparation so be aware and don't turn your back on the sandwich makings!
Getting to central London was a snap on the Tube so we were able to cruise around easily and see all the sites we wanted.
We found a wonderful Indian restaurant near the Tube station and ate there several times as it was delicious and affordable. I didn't write down the name of it but Joe knows. The owner's name is Baboo.
There is a Tesco close by for supplies. Joe and Aurora left us coffee and tea and milk etc for morning so we just added some toast and cereal and we were good to go.
All in all, our stay was terrific. The flat was comfortable, a little quirky in a London kind of way and had good vibes! The garden was a lovely place to sit and relax.
The neighborhood was colorful and we always felt safe there.
Thank you Joe and Aurora for making us feel at home and leaving such good directions and suggestions for restaurants etc.
We highly recommend!
We enjoyed every minute in Joe's flat! A lovely place, Joe's information helped us a lot not to get lost in London and finding everything in the flat. We felt home immediately, miss the cats already...
This truly is a beautiful, spacious and charming flat, with a lovely garden and gracious, charming, and solicitous hosts (who clear out for your stay). The tube is nearby and fast to central London, but there's a lot to explore within walking distance: a diverse high street; a little yuppie enclave with nice cafes and bakeries and such; and a neighbourhood that feels very like a residential neighbourhood in Istanbul. Highly recommended.
Joe's place was perfect! Very clean and close to the Tube. Check in and check out were very easy and Joe provided us with plenty of information on London. Would highly recommend.
Joe war ein sehr angenehmer, freundlicher und zuverlässiger Gast. Er ist jeder Zeit wieder herzlich willkommen.
Joe was a very pleasant guest! Very friendly, respectful and clean! Highly recommended!
Joe was a perfect guest! We had nice chats in the evening when both felt like, helped each other with a few things and had a good laugh. Joe was very well organised, Mr. Proper-like clean and is always welcome again in our house!
Joe was a great guest! Very polite and easy-going. We enjoyed having him and would welcome him back anytime.
Joe was super friendly, straightforward and open. It was a pleasure to have him as a guest!!
Joe Deville war 3 Tage Gast bei mir in Bern. Es war eine wirklich gute Zeit, Joe ist eine interessante Persönlichkeit, sehr nett und freundlich und zuvorkommend. Es war eine gute Begegnung mit interessanten Gesprächen. Ich kann Joe Deville wirklich weiter empfehlen.
it was a whistlestop trip to zurich, but the brief exchange we had was very pleasant and I can highly recommend joe as a guest!
Joe was a very friendly guest. He is an educated, interesting person. The communication with him was very polite, clear and quick. He came to Bern for some research and he was staying quite a while at our place. We can absolutely recommend him to the Airbnb community. Thanks for staying at our place, Joe!
Joe and Aurora where great guests! Very informative and flexible when I had to return to the flat a few hours before their original check out.
In addition they left the place just as spotless as they received it.
Joe was a guest just as you could wish. "Easy to handle" :) , nice and smart.
Please welcome him.
Joe & Aurora are lovely people and their place is absolutely delightful ! I doubt you can find a better deal in terms of quality, space and price ratio in London : the flat is light and spacious (truly accommodates 4), newly redecorated and benefits from a very nice garden. The location is also very convenient and the up and coming neighborhood totally safe and friendly. Joe and Aurora will be happy to help with your trip and will make sure you enjoy your stay. I have stayed at Joe's place myself and had a lovely time. I definitely recommend it !
