single bedroom with ensuite bathroom in central London (Islington, N1) family house
secure offstreet parking available
My spacious semi-detached villa in a tree-lined quiet residential road in central London (Islington) is in a no-through road and set well back from the road. The single bedroom is on the first floor; it has a comfortable British standard single bed (190cm by 90 cm) so you may find it too small if you are particularly tall. It is a small room overlooking the back garden - very quiet. It has exclusive use of the adjoining ensuite large bathroom - access through a connecting door in the bedroom - no need to step out into the corridor! Please note that the bathroom has been redecorated since the photos were taken so it is not exactly as in the photos.
You will have exclusive use of the two rooms (bedroom and bathroom) but no use of the rest of the house, except for passage. If you want to cook for yourself, please enquire as this may be possible in certain circumstances.
Общение с гостями
Breakfast and dinner can be provided if requested in advance for an extra charge. I cook using fresh organic ingredients and make pretty much everything from scratch (including bread with my own mother yeast).
Другие важные подробности
You will be coming into a family home, so you may hear some noise, especially early in the morning and late afternoon early evening when the children are with me (they not always are) - otherwise my house is very quiet.
The rooms are nice and cosy in winter and cool in summer. In the unlikely event that it gets too hot (it is England after all!) I can supply a portable air-conditioning unit.
WHAT TO EXPECT - A MUCH LOVED FAMILY HOME, JUST LIKE STAYING AT A FRIEND'S
Although I have yet to disappoint anyone, I want to clarify that this property is my home, where I've lived with my family for almost 20 years. It is not a 5 star hotel: the decor is not perfect, nor standardised, nor luxurious, nor trendy, and the facilities reflect my tastes, preferences and foibles. I have a passion for vintage furniture and textiles and this is reflected in the decor, which as a result is not "brand new". The decor also tend to change as I trade in vintage and some pieces come and go, together with the art on the walls as my partner is an artist. There may be therefore variations from the photos on the website. However, the photos are not professionally done nor retouched in any way so they are less likely to disappoint than professionally styled photos that make every home look enormous and totally glamorous (been there, done that).
