My lovely home is a chic 1bed apartment with a private balcony, located in leafy yet central Highbury It is less than 30 minutes from Central London and you can walk to trendy Islington, hip Dalston and beautiful Stoke Newington.
Whether you're in London for sightseeing, studying, shopping, or people-watching, my home is an ideal base for getting around with excellent transport links. The local area has plenty of great cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as some of London's prettiest parks.
My home is on the first floor of a 2 story block of flats in a quiet, friendly estate with lots of green space, tucked away from the main road.
The living area is spacious and bright with natural light flooding in through the large windows. The quirky style and eclectic decor make this a unique space. I have taken a lot of care in decorating my home, which includes contemporary artwork by popular local artists as well as souvenirs from my extensive travels to give my home a personality. I also love music and film, which is reflected in the decor and the analogue amenities which you will have access to. There is a working record player and a selection of vinyl for you to unwind to, as well as a wide range of VHS and DVDs that you can play in both the living room and bedroom if you don't feel like going out. You can relax on my beautiful Laura Ashley sofa or my vintage rocking chair, and there is also a small table and chairs to eat at. My cute private balcony has soft astro turf underfoot so you can enjoy some fresh air.
My kitchen is fitted with all essential amenities so you can whip up a home cooked meal, chill your beers or re-heat your take-away as well as starting your day with a tea or coffee, which are provided. There are also laundry facilities, should you require them.
My cosy double bedroom is small but comfortable, and there is space to unpack and hang your clothes. The bed has an electric blanket with individual temperature adjustment on either side for those chilly winter nights, and the cleaners place fresh, hotel-quality linen on the bed before your arrival.
The bathroom has both a shower and a bath, and will be stocked with essential toiletries for your convenience.
Guests will have access to the entire property during their stay.
Unfortunately, I won't be there to show you around, but will be contactable by email or telephone during your stay, and will also provide a local 'guide book' of great places to go, and a short video introduction to the apartment to help you feel at home.
The neighbours have a cat who may sit outside and miaow.
