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.

The space

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).

Guest access

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!

We enjoyed staying with Damian and loved the comfort of his flat! The description of the place is very accurate. The tube (Victoria line) and Overground, a train and some grocery shopping places are in walking distance. The room is small and very nice. Damian is an aspiring art expert with remarkable knowledge and interest in arts and the fine things in life. We immediately felt comfortable thanks to his very friendly and helpful character. Due to his busy schedule he was out very often but did everything to make us feel welcome and at home at his place. His flat is a reflection of good taste and proof of his eye for detail. Thanks for hosting us Damian!
