I rent my second bedroom in this sophisticated flat in leafy Canonbury - Islington's hidden Georgian 'village'. Ideal for working, studying or exploring in London, with fast direct transport links to the West End, City, Hackney or Hampstead. It's like country living in the heart of London.
The flat has two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom, a large living room filled with great art and furniture, and a separate kitchen. Everything looks out onto gardens and mature trees.
Although I do list the entire flat when I am away for long periods, this listing is for the second bedroom. You will share the rest of the flat with me while you're here - but I am clean, tidy and very friendly!
The flat is ideal if you're in London for work or business. Or as a base from which to explore the city. Either way, it's a beautiful retreat to come back to at the end of the day. In this quiet neighbourhood all you hear day or night are the birds (and the foxes).
Fast, direct trains from Highbury & Islington station (5 mins walk) to the City, West End, Hackney and Hampstead.
Upper Street (shops, bars and restaurants) is minutes away and there are great places to eat in the neighbourhood which I'd be happy to recommend.
Interaction with guests
I've travelled a lot myself so I hope I know what it takes to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible - including basics in the kitchen (tea, coffee, milk, etc), an 'honesty' wine rack to which you can help yourself and leave some money, and some nice things in the bathroom. Anything else you require, you just have to ask.
I'll also give you some recommendations for favourite local bars, restaurants and cafes or some broader London knowledge if that's required!
