If you want to experience London at it's best then come to Camden. This area of London is central, safe, and packed full of cafes, bars, famous nightclubs, music venues and the world famous Camden Market along with beautiful parks and Primrose Hill.
I live in the heart of Camden Town, in a late Georgian terrace of houses within a Conservation area, right in the centre of London. My flat is richly decorated which reflects the work that I do as a Textile Artist. My walls are covered with my choice of vintage finds, antiques and objets d'art. **If your dates are showing as not available..please write anyway and ask since my plans are quite flexible for November to February 2019. My home is not available for Christmas and New Year. **Here is what Leanne from the US had to say when she stayed at Easter: ‘We absolutely loved everything about our stay. Your beautiful home was simply magical, we loved being surrounded with treasures from around the world. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience to make our first trip to London memorable’. My Flat on 1st and 2nd Floor 16 sq mtrs: SITTING ROOM/BEDROOM: You will be staying (with me) in my sitting room on a comfy sofa bed. You will get complete privacy during your stay in my sitting room. This large sunny room has two big windows with wooden shutters and a big fire place. There will be fresh bedlinen, a choice of pillows, towels, big duvets and hot water bottles. There is a hanger rail for your clothes. **I provide earplugs for you as I am on a main road. **1 extra small child can stay on AIR MATTRESSES or ONE EXTRA adult. This will be like CAMPING but is appreciated by families on a tight budget... or for a family for the weekend. You have free Wi Fi, TV, DVD and information about what is going on in London, with maps and guidebooks. KITCHEN: You can use my kitchen whilst staying with me. There is unlimited tea and coffee, a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, a fridge, iron and ironing board. I do not have an electric dryer - I hang clothes on a dryer in the hallway. **I don't supply breakfast but Arancini's ( 1 minute walk) has great food and Mario's is around the corner (with his own mini Art gallery). ** For 3 people to eat at the kitchen table is slightly tight... see the pictures. BATHROOM: You will be sharing the bathroom with me. I supply big towels, hairdryers and a few shampoos etc. GUEST WELCOME: I always try to welcome guests personally but if I am not around I make other arrangements for you as well as key access. I provide a welcome pack for you and answer all your questions. Then I leave you be. SIGHTS TO SEE: *8 min bus to Kings Place, a fantastic new music and culture venue at the back of Kings Cross. *20 min bus to the British Museum and 9 other Museums all within walking distance, in the heart of Bloomsbury *25 min bus to the Tate Modern and the South Bank area that includes the Royal Festival Hall and the National Theatre. *6 min bus to the British Library *10 min bus to Bloomsbury, for literary fans, see a monument to Gandhi, the University and the Welcome Trust building. *20 mins bus to the heart of Covent Garden for boutique shopping, the Opera House, and street performances. *20mins bus to Soho and China Town and Trafalgar Square. *20 min bus to Oxford and Regents St shopping, including Selfridges and the Apple store. *15min train to Brick Lane Market. * 25 min train to Kew Gardens. * 10min bus ride to Madam Tussaud's and the Planetarium.

Walks: around London are held on every subject you can think of including street art and early morning photography walks. Picnics: go up to Hampstead Heath 480 acres in the middle of London and listen to concerts or go on walks. Sight Seeing bus rides at night are well worth doing.

Football: Emirates Stadium is a 20 mins walk away. or Movie Fans; At the back of St Pancras Station ( Batman Begins 2005) is Somerstown, featured in the film of the same name. Chaplin 1992 and countless films were filmed by the canal there, which has now been opened up for visitors and has a new street food market and a brilliant music venue called Kings Place. The Spice Girls filmed in the now magnificent St Pancras Hotel -- well worth a visit. All 8 Harry Potter films were filmed at Kings Cross Station so fans will want to visit platform 9 and 3/4 - ask anyone where it is. Alfie, Breaking and Entering, Nanny Mcfee 2 were filming in that area as well as Regents Park, Primrose Hill, Regents Canal. Camden has been filmed in numerous times. And Robert Downey Jn had his photo taken right outside my front door for Sherlock Holmes. And I missed it... When you write to me please use the word 'Vintage' so that I know you have read the whole listing.
ROUND THE CORNER: I live on a main road just down from a small high street with basic shops and cafes in it. If you want West End stores then my local bus takes you right to Oxford St in 20 minutes.

  • My boyfriend and I only met Tessa briefly on the day we arrived, lovely lady! Really organized with notes around the room and kitchen reminding us where things are and what to do, which I thought was extremely helpful! Her home was BEAUTIFUL! Loved every inch of it! Definitely a place for someone who loves and appreciate art and decor! The location was really good too, close to Camden market and lots of yummy takeouts! Had such a great time staying in Tessa's lovely home!

  • Charming artistic home with shared kitchen and bath. Sleep on pull out couch in small living room. Close walk to Camden central.

  • Tessa is so warm and welcoming and so is her lovely home. It was a real treat to stay there - so much so that I will definitely book again. It is thankfully a world away from an anonymous beige hotel room and I only wish that I could have stayed longer. The location was superb and breakfast at nearby Arancini's was delicious. It cannot be faulted in any way!

  • Great room in Kentish Town, a fascinating, fun neighborhood in London. Tessa had lots of good information and suggestions about London and the specifically about Kentish Town. I enjoyed my stay and getting to know Tessa.

  • Ze had een goede beschrijving gegeven van hoe er te komen en binnen te komen. Ze had een welkomst info pakket klaar liggen. Het bed was mooi op gemaakt en alles zag er netjes uit. We werden warm welkom geheten toen we elkaar ontmoeten.

  • Tessa was a great!! Very welcoming and loads of info and tips for my stay. Location is great and flat is very nice! Thanks again Tessa and I'm sure I'll see you again!

  • Tessa is a thoughful and considerate host and her home is very comfortable, providing a good nights sleep and London on the doorstep in the morning at a very reasonable price. Don't miss out meeting this special woman.

  • Tessa's place was charming and quaint but it was the warm welcome after a long day that really made the stay special. After that she left me to my privacy. I heartily recommend this lodging! Sonja

  • This was a lovely studio flat that had everything we needed for our stay. The bed was comfy and everywhere was spotless. It was easy to find and near to Gants Hill tube station so we were able to go into central London easily. Many thanks.

L'endroit est calme et tres facile d'accès pour se rendre au centre de Londres en métro ! Une chose est sûre ,nous reviendrons !!

  • Very nice and clean place. I'll be back!

  • Brilliant use of space and so clean. Small touches make it such a pleasure to stay there.

  • This apartment is very modern, comfortable and really nicely furnished. A lot of thought was put into this flat. It is exactly as described. Carl greeted us personally and made us feel very welcome. He even provided some food provisions and chocolates! He was very helpful with information about restaurants and shopping malls in the area. It is also very close to the underground and about 30 minutes away from central London. Good place to stay when visiting London.

  • We only stayed for a night, but the place was really amazing and the description of the loft is completely accurate. We were welcomed by Carl's wife who was very nice. Don't hesitate to book a few nights there !

  • Carl and his family were very nice and friendly, which made us felt very welcome. We had some accident on the way and delayed our arrival time, thanks Carl for waiting us.

    • • Shoreditch is arguably London's trendiest neighbourhood. It's London answer to NYC's east village/tribeca. • The area benefits from great restaurants, cafes, galleries, hipsters and is probably the global epicentre for street art. It's just east of the city of london, home to evil bankers, so still very central. • Great access to central London
  • Hugh is a wonderful host and made it super easy for us to feel settled in his gorgeous apt. His list of insider tips for enjoying London were invaluable, and the attention to detail in the apartment meant we had everything we needed and could possibly want. Great area, will be back for sure.

  • Hugh is a great communicator, excellent host!

  • Hugh was an incredibly gracious host, and even welcomed us to his fantastically appointed flat with a basket of food, fresh, high-end shampoos and soaps. His recommendations for food were spot on as well. Truly a great experience!

  • Hugh helped my friends and I when our previous booking was cancelled on the day of check in, getting us into his apartment in less than an hour. Hugh was also really helpful over the phone and there was a constant communication channel which made getting in contact with him very easy.

  • Brilliant place brilliant location and very atentitive host

  • Hugh was very communicative and made the key pick up process easy to accommodate our late arrival time. The apartment was very clean and he had nice amenities in the bathroom for our stay.

  • Over the past few years I've stayed at 30+ Airbnb rentals - this was one of my best experiences. First, the location - if you want to be in or around Shoreditch it would be difficult to find a better spot. You're in Arnold Circus, which is quiet and full of character yet only a 2-3 minute walk from the very center of the neighborhood. Because the Circus has streets radiating in all directions, it's easy to go anywhere quickly. There are several nice cafés within a two-block radius of the apartment, and good restaurants as well as slightly offbeat shopping on both Redchurch and Boundary street. Second, the apartment - I liked it when I first walked in and kept liking it more the longer I was there (4 nights). It takes up the third floor of the small building, around 900 square feet/80-90 square meters, and thus has light on all four sides. In fact each room is actually a corner room, with windows on two sides. As promised the kitchen is fully stocked and as is clear from the photos connects openly with the living/seating area. It's especially nice in the morning with the light coming in from the east. The master bedroom is bigger than it appears in the photos and feels both cozy and spacious. Then there's the bed ... As an Airbnb host, I know that a comfortable bed and bedding are almost always appreciated, and this Tempurpedic certainly was. I'm a light sleeper and occasionally woke up from a bit of street noise - this bed sent me right back into deep sleep every time. Third, Hugh - As the reviews indicate, he's quick to communicate and gracious in a subtle way. He's there if you need him and leaves you alone if not. He knows the city and neighborhood very well of course, and his recommendations are spot on. Just as important, he is/was flexible on my arrival and checkout plans and made things very easy on that front. Overall - although the excellent late summer weather certainly contributed to my happiness, there's an overall vibe Hugh has created here which is even better than the sum of its very good parts. If you want to feel really at home and comfortable in a part of the city that's arrived and lively but still getting better, this is a great choice.

  • Hugh was a fantastic and considerate host. Fast answer to any question, everything was really well organised. The flat is as nice as the pictures, and beds are really comfortable. The neighbourhood (shoreditch) is great with shops, restaurants and bars all around.

    Get cosy in this stylish and central apartment, with its overlarge sofa, modern decor, and wooden floors throughout. Windows overlook trendy Bermondsey Street, and the kitchen is well-stocked with updated appliances.
    This is Zone 1 London and situated on trendy Bermondsey St, SE1, which is packed with restaurants, bars, life and the latest Zone 1 hub of London! Originally a local authority apartment but this large block of flats is now 75% privately owned with beautifully maintained gardens. It’s light and airy, very safe with entry from the outdoor covered balcony, recently updated with fresh coat of paint. Located on the South bank with easy access (walking or by tube or bus) to Gastro pubs, restaurants and all the main attractions London offers. You’ll love my place because of the neighbourhood, and the comfy bed. It's great for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
    The apartment is located in Zone 1, between the South Bank and Shad Thames, near brilliant restaurants and bars on the River Thames. It's within walking distance of Tower Bridge and the Tate Modern, and many London attractions are within easy reach.
  • Jen's apartment was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay for our first international trip together. It was a short walk from the London Bridge Underground Station, only two connections from Heathrow airport or a train ride from Gatwick if you choose to travel through there. The neighborhood was quiet and felt secluded while still having nightlife nearby. So close to the Thames, we walked there almost every day! The apartment is beautiful and kept very clean. We were especially impressed by the giant couch we could flop onto after a long day of walking. Jen was a wonderful hostess, she was available as soon as we arrived to the apartment, showed us around, and explained how to use the dish and clothes washers as well as sharing what we should visit. We were staying in her apartment during the London Bridge/Borough Market attacks and felt so safe in this apartment and Jen messaged us to check in, I don't know if we would have had the same s secure feeling anywhere else. Thank you Jen!

  • Fantastic unit & great location. Very easy to find & very comfortable. Will be back again.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Jennifer’s flat in Borough. The location was terrific: very close to London Bridge station, the Shard (we highly recommend a night out at Hutong on the 33rd floor for a special occasion - the view at night is spectacular!), Tate Modern/Southbank and Borough market as well as lively local cafes and pubs. A very hip area. The flat was exactly as Jen described it - comfortable and well appointed. She was overseas when we arrived but her stand-in Ryan was very helpful and Jen was only a phone message away despite the time difference and always responded quickly. It was fantastic to have a cosy flat to return to after exciting days of walking and sightseeing in mid-winter London. And there were plenty of excellent eateries with a range of prices when we didn’t feel like self-catering in the well appointed kitchen.

  • Ottima accoglienza, Jennifer disponibile. Tutto quanto descritto corrisponde, siamo stati molto bene. Lo raccomando

  • We had a great stay at Jen's for a month. We were looking for temporary accommodation and the apartment had all the amenities for a comfortable stay of a month. The apartment building was slightly older, however the furnishing was great. Jen ensured that we had a comfortable stay. Our bedding and linen was changed every week and the house was cleaned too. The latch on the bathroom door did not work, but we didn't mind that since we are a couple. I am sure Jen would have that fixed in no time. All in all, great stay and great host. Thank you Jen for your hospitality. Gurpreet and Amrita

  • Jen is the best host on Air BnB I've had, and that's saying alot. Her authentic hospitality and support and communication is what Air BnB and community is all about. This is why I value Air BnB. You won't be disappointed. And the fresh-cut flowers are a nice touch!

  • Great flat and good location. Jennifer is a helpful and thoughtful host

  • Jen's place was great, the perfect location. Me and my boyfriend stayed here for the weekend and found Jen's place great, it's was very clean, had all the things you needed, Jen was a great host, very helpful! We'll be back for sure.
