  • Great location, easy access by tube

    "This was the perfect location for us as my daughter is living at Highbury Stadium. Staying at the Highbury Stadium is a unique experience in and of itself. James was great about contacting us and being available before arrival. We took the tube from Heathrow and he met us at the station. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. There were also various converter plugs around which was very convenient because we didn't bring any from the US. It was easy to hop on the tube and go sightseeing all around London. We were so tired at night that we didn't really have any trouble sleeping, but the bed was definitely very hard. The window shades don't block out any light from the early summer sunrise. There is a Tesco Express nearby for daily groceries. Blackstock Road is a great street with local shops, restaurants and pubs. The Beach Hut has the best fish and chips and very friendly service. When we left we had a flight out of Gatwick. In hindsight Heathrow would have been a better choice due to a direct line with the metro."

  • Reasonably priced quiet flat in a great location for exploring London

    "This is a clean quit flat in a great location close to Kings Cross station with all the amenities that you need very close by. We enjoyed our 4 night stay and found that Debbie was very responsive to all of our needs. I would recommend this location."

  • Quaint Charming Home Away from Home

    "We stayed in this flat over Christmas 2016 for 8 days. There were 5 of us and the bedroom configuration didn't really suit out group. That didn't matter - Emily and John looked after us with another mattress which was able to be put into one of the rooms. The flat is quaint and charming from your arrival. The top floor flat is situated over 3 floors - 1 has the bedrooms, one has the bathroom and the other the living room. There is a terrace off the Living Room and it has a view to die for!!! There's a few flights of stairs to get to with heavy baggage - worth the walk though. The location is set about equidistance from the Angel tube station and the St Pancras / Kings Cross tube, national rail and International Rail lines. Upper Street at the Angel is a mini shopping mecca and the surrounds have plenty to offer in terms of pubs and restaurants. The flat is well furnished, keeping a lovely charm about it with old style iron beds (which was the best I slept on in my entire 1 month stay in Europe) and other rustic furniture. The living area is large enough to accommodate a large group and is a tasteful mixture of new, funky and old. It's VERY well equipped - le creuset cookware and other good quality (as I think because the owners are chefs who run a catering and cooking class company. The wifi works well with no glitches and the tv is well equipped with channels if that's what you like at the end of a big day sightseeing. There is also a USB reader on the tv so if you bring a USB with preloaded movies, you're set. There were a couple of light bulbs blown which didn't get fixed before the owners left for their Christmas trip but that was the only down side. We brought our own Christmas tree, lights and Christmas hats as well as some tinsel and other decorations. We've left them in a box for the next visitors who happen to be there in the flat over Christmas. You're welcome :) This property is so worth the money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with a group who needs an apartment of this size. Thanks Emily and John."

  • Great Flat, Perfect Location!

    "My family stayed in London for just over a week in early August. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and as described by Debbie. The bedrooms were well suited to our family of 4 and we appreciated the convenience of having both a dishwasher and a washer and dryer for laundry. The location couldn't be better! A very short walk for groceries at the nearby Tesco and less than 10 minutes walk to Kings Cross and St. Pancras stations. Be aware that there are a lot of stairs to get to the flat on the fourth floor. This was only a problem for us when arriving with our luggage, but anyone with knee or mobility issues would probably prefer a lower floor. The wifi was not consistent, but seemed to work best in the master bedroom. Overall, we loved the flat and would definitely book with Debbie again if we come back to London!"
