1783 four storey terraced family home, for 2-6.
Double bed (Bed 1) & bathroom: top floor.
Sitting room (1st floor) & double sofa-bed (Bed 2) - doors for privacy.
The Cabin: ground floor 2-tier ADULT bunks (Small-Bed 3), ideal for 2 kids - or my 6 foot son-in-law.
Ground floor loo/shower, next to Cabin.
Kitchen/diner semi-basement, TV sitting room.
Not nosey, but I like to know who you are & Expected Time of Arrival (most important). Calendar often flexible.
This is my lovely 1780s two/three bedroom terraced town house, on four floors. In fine shape, well furnished and in a (usually) quiet street with good neighbours. My home has been rented out by EasyRental via Aibnb and One Fine Stay for several years and has had excellent reviews, but I prefer direct contact with the guests.
This is an ideal house for a couple with two children. Six people are squash if it's for long, but quite possible. I often have a houseful overnight when I'm here.
Top (second) Floor: main bedroom (double bed) + bathtub, shower & loo + store cupboards for clothes and luggage.
First Floor: sitting room, TV, hi-fi + sofa bedroom (double bed).
Ground Floor: The Cabin - tiny bedroom but with adult size bunk beds (for two), loo, shower + my study/your luggage storeroom - see Guest Access.
Semi-basement: kitchen/dining room &c.
Basement/semi-cellar/utility room: washing machine & dryer.
Garden: paved, table &c and BBQ.
Guests have access everywhere: My Study (Ground Floor) is not for use by guests, except for storage. See Floor Plan photo.
Interaction with guests
You'll receive a warm welcome, and we can sort keys &c, and either I or my staff will have the place clean and ready for use. I'm unlikely to be in London while guests are here - I'll either be in Anglesey, sailing or on holiday. But I'll usually be available by phone or email.
Sheets (Egyptian cotton, quality stuff), towels &c provided: you simply move in.
Other things to note
Cleaning and help (Laura, first language Spanish), washing & ironing &c: all available.
Parking: at meters, or local carparks, but best to use public transport.
You should find the place clean, and please leave it clean.
There is a full house manual that explains how things work.
Rubbish disposal: Islington is keen on recycling. So am I! Instructions easy to follow. Collections on Friday mornings.

I am a neurologist with wide interests - high altitude climbing, exploration and sailing. I live in London (house in Islington via Airbnb) and North Wales - see Cwm y Wrach (cottage in Snowdonia, via Airbnb) and Bryn Mel Garden House (country house with pool, via Menai Holidays).
I speak some Spanish - my partner Marcela is from Chile.
I love food, wine, old books, nice old things and writing - see Everest The Unclimbed Ridge (1983), Tibet's Secret Mountain (1998) and Neurology A Queen Square Textbook (2009/2016) .
