We couldn't meet up in person because he was out of town on our arrival day but we were able to contact him frequently through emails, phone calls and SMS: that caused no problem at all.

We traveled with a baby, so "safety" was one of the issues. Therefore, we chose this flat in Highgate, that is known as a wealthy, safe area similar to Hampstead. The entrance of the flat is facing a big road, so it's very safe even when you back home very late. Besides, it takes only 2 min from the nearest bust stop (24-hour service available), so you could come home anytime.
Highgate village is about 10-min walk away but you need to walk up the hill, which was a bit tough for us with a small baby... but it's worth a visit. Charming shops and decent pubs like the ones you find in Primrose Hill are there.
At the timing of our arrival, washing machine (for clothes) was broken and it was the only disappointment, really. But the launderette is just a few doors away, so it didn't cause a big problem.
The host is very reliable and friendly. This flat is very clean and convenient. So if you want to stay a little away from central London and enjoy relaxed, peaceful time like those living in there do, this is the right place!!
Thank James for everything and we hope to return to London some day sooner! (but never know when it will be...)
I really enjoyed my stay. The flat is in a great location, not far from two tube stations (be aware that it is on a flat area in the middle of two hills/inclines). The property is on a noisy street but the upside is there are always buses running. James was very accommodating when dropping off and picking up the keys. He was also always available to answer our questions. Great host! The property is very bright and airy, well decorated with a lot of space. It was also great to have an outside patio off the kitchen. Overall, I had a very positive experience.
It's a great one-bed apartment located in a great area. James is very nice.
Only downside is the living room is facing to a super big and busy road so it can be noisy, but bedroom is facing to a very quite street though. I enjoyed my stay very much overall.
James was super at taking our initial booking, arranging flexible key pick up and easy to follow descriptions of the flat itself - he also kindly gave us local eatery tips, which was great. We wanted a " locals experience" of london- and thats exactly what we got! We loved the ease of transport getting to Euston and the lovely cafes and shops in highgate. Great flat as well - lovely having an outdoor space in the city as well as the luxury of TV in the bedroom! Great shower too! Loved our first airbnb experience :-)
