Late twenties London - girl ; working in PR and trying to travel the world ;-)
Tara's apartment is situated in a very cosy and quiet area just a couple of minutes from lively Islington. It was perfect. When we arrived she left us a lot of very useful Information.
Thank you so much! We enjoyed our stay in London a lot!
Tara's flat is lovely and very comfortable, on a quiet residential street with quick access to transit (several different bus lines) and great coffee shops nearby.Tara responds immediately to emails and is superhelpful with suggestions and ideas for your stay. I highly recommend booking with her and will definitely be back on my next trip to London! A very positive experience!
My colleague and I spend a great week-end in Tara's nice flat. Everything worked well and Tara answered all questions quickly. I recommend :-)
Tara's Place was an amazing place place to stay!! Spotless, cosy and boasting an impressive (and most of all) interesting book collection!! The house was close to the bus and rail network making it easy to go anywhere in London you please.
Tara was a brilliant host who put great effort into making my stay as hassle free as possible!
The perfect place for a weekend visit to London
Great apartment, great location ! The neighborhood is safe and not too far from the center thanks to the underground and the buses that run day and night. Tara is really nice and always ready to help. We enjoyed our stay very much. We will come back for sure !
Tara is a kind and flexible host. She was extremely helpful with tips about things to do both in the neighborhood and in London, in general. All of the things she recommended that we actually got to were great. The apartment worked well for two adults and a teenager. The two bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the apartment, which would also give privacy to two couples. A few things to know about the place: it is located in what I would consider the north-east end of Islington in a "mixed partially gentrified" neighborhood (to quote wikipedia), not the superslick hipster part of Islington. I found this to be a good thing, in that the neighborhood has character and lots of different kids of people and shops. There are sweet restaurants, cafes and markets within a block or two. It is in Zone 2 when you are taking the tube, which adds a bit of cost and travel time and also made us less likely to come home between activities. We found it fastest to walk to the Islington tube station (15-20 minutes) then to take the overground and switch to the underground. Sometimes the wait for the overground can be 20 minutes, so you might as well walk unless you time it just so at the right time of day. Another thing that is helpful for us Americans to know about the apartment is that there is only a tub with a hand shower, not a stand-up shower. Using said hand shower is an art, which we mastered in about two days.
This is a comfortable, pleasingly organised and well-equipped flat. Its two bedrooms have good double beds, the kitchen we cooked in without hardship, and the sitting-room is fine and adjacent to a roomy dining space under a glass roof.
Whoever brought together the two or three hundred books on the shelves has an interesting mind, so no guest will be under-stimulated.
we had a woderfull stay at Tara's place. just like she says it's in a quite area yet close to public transport and you're only a few stops away from the centre of London.
everything was well arranged. we drove up there by car and Tara arranged parkig permits for us.
just a great place to dicover London!
This was a great place to stay during our visit to London. First, Tara and her fiance were very helpful in giving us tips on where to go in the neighbourhood and we felt very welcome. The flat is in a great location, in a leafy area of London and away from the bustle of the city centre. It's just a few trains away from all the main attractions.
The flat itself was well equipped, cozy and a good size for the 3 of us to be comfortable. Would highly recommend!
The apt it's really nice, very clean and comfortable and is located in a great area where you'll find all you need.
Tara was very kind with us, I recommend to check this out if you want to spend a great holiday in London!
Awesome guest! Tara is a very easy-going and friendly person. She treated my place with great care and respect. It was a pleasure hosting her. I would recommend her as a guest to all! Thanks, Tara... would love to host you again next time you're in New York!
