Welcome to my apartment, located just moments from Highbury & Islington tube station & the wonders of Upper Street. It's located in an unassuming yet historic building (John Lennon stayed here!) & has a generously sized, south facing roof garden. It's been recently renovated (apart from the bathroom - I'm getting there!) so it has a nice light & airy feel. There is a bedroom with a double bed & an optional wall bed (small double in the living area.

The space
Recently renovated, I hope you'll find my apartment to your liking with it's neutral tones & natural, warm feel. I've tried to make it as homely & comfortable as possible for your stay, you are welcome to use the tea, coffee & groceries in the cupboards & use the kitchen ware & utensils on offer.

The entire apartment overlooks a south facing roof garden, so even though you're on the hustle & bustle of Holloway Road, you don't hear any traffic.

Guest access
You have full access to the whole apartment & garden at all times. My daughter & I live in the apartment so our belongings will be discreet but there in the wardrobes etc... luckily we're pretty minimal!

Other things to note
You DO sometimes hear the bar downstairs on the occasional busy weekend night.

The roof terrace does have an edgy feel to it, it's not perfectly landscaped but it IS a work in progress, has a comfy sofa & is a south facing sun trap!

The 2nd bed is in the living area which currently doesn't have any blinds, so the sun will be your alarm clock!

The bathroom is a little tired but bear with, I'm a single mama just trying her best! It's perfectly functional & clean, it just needs a little facelift.

The apartment doesn't have an iron.... or an ironing board. My mother said ironing was a waste of your life so I've never ironed a thing. Maybe that's why I'm single.

Location

Islington, Islington, England

Islington is a gorgeous borough with the jewel of the crown being Upper Street with it's plethora of bars & restaurants. The immediate area we're in is called LoHo & has a variety of amenities within 1 minute of the flat. Immediately downstairs is House of Hammerton, famous for its craft ales. We have a fun concept store called Provisions which do wine & cheese tastings & the North London Buddhist Centre is just 30 seconds away with a full yoga & meditation schedule, open to all. If it's coffee & breakfast you're after - Vagabond N7 is the one, just 3 doors along. Need a little fix-up after your journey? The N7 Collective is Islington's premier hair & beauty salon and is just 14 doors away. If you want to book in just let me know for a special Air BNB discount, I know the owner (spoiler, it's me).

I'm a 33 year old professional. My daughter & I live in our home but visit family in the country two weekends a month, so am looking to rent it out for regular long weekends. I am a non-smoker and rarely (ok, never!) cook so the apartment is well looked after. I study part time at St Martin's College and enjoy photography and filmmaking. I first used Air B&B on a road trip around Australia and have been passionate about sharing my home with travellers ever since. I enjoy living in the Loho area of London due to the green spaces, quirky shopping, local Buddhist centre, great bars, cafes and restaurants. It is also one of the best locations in London for quick and easy transport. I hope you love it as much as I do!
