Welcome home! Make our flat your home-away-from-home and enjoy a memorable stay in London.
Your room is spacious, cozy and sunny, ideal if it’s your first trip to London, or a local looking for a change of scenery. It's on the first floor of a huge, bi-level flat shared with an easygoing couple who keeps the place clean and tidy. We spend most of our time at our jobs, leaving the rest of the flat to you.
We live in Manor House, a 5 minute walk from the Manor House tube station (Piccadilly line) and 10 minutes by tube to Central London. It's a lovely, quiet neighbourhood, close to several beautiful parks (Finsbury Park and Clissold Park) and a huge assortment of unique restaurants, cafes, lounges and hangouts, both in the Finsbury Park and Green Lanes areas. Definitely the destination for those looking for the best of what London currently has to offer, especially the indie vibe of Northeast London.
Lets take a tour!
--Double bed ("full size" in American)
--Brand new mattress, moderately firm for a good night's sleep.
--Bed comes fully dressed with fresh linens and pillows. We provide four pillows but feel free to bring your own for a custom fit.
--The blinds can be drawn to make the room very dark, ideal if you are a light sleeper, and the neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet, so you’re always in for a good night’s sleep.
To safely store your stuff, there is a vintage dresser with plenty of room for two people. We'll be happy to store your luggage in one of the cupboards if you prefer.
The kitchen is wide, bright and cheery, fully stocked with all sorts of cooking supplies, kettles, coffee makers, teas, basically everything you need to make a five-star meal any time of day. Also in the kitchen is a washing machine and you're welcome to use our large drying rack.
We have a bright bathroom and a half bathroom, which are shared with us, but our guests always get priority. We are both out of the house pretty early for work anyway. The large bathroom features a bathtub and shower, perfect if you prefer a long, luxurious soak after travelling. Towels are provided in a variety of colours, so you don’t have to pack any in your suitcase to save room.
There is a large, brightly lit living room on the ground floor that is perfect for any activity--a night in sitting and relaxing, watching movies, having a drink with friends, etc. We even have a vintage vinyl player with tons of amazing records. We've kept the furniture small and mobile, so you can move it around to your liking and even open the room up to create space for yoga, meditation, or just hanging out.
There are a few parks very nearby, including the fantastic Finsbury Park, the East and West Reservoirs and Clissold Park, where you can find plenty of green area to run, let off some steam or sunbathe. There is also a weight set in the flat that you are welcome to use during your stay.
The house has a wonderfully lush private garden in the back with a pond, where you can enjoy a coffee in the sun, or sit relax watching the koi swim by.
We are minutes away from a variety of transport stations:
--Manor house Tube Station (connects straight to Heathrow Airport, King’s Cross/St. Pancras International Railway Station)
--Too many bus stations to count, all headed toward central London.
--A variety of night bus stops.
--High-speed wireless internet (Wi-Fi) is provided with excellent reception throughout the entire flat.
--There is a small off-licence market directly outside of the Tube stop that sells all the essentials as well as wine, beer and spirits, which is open pretty late. There are also a variety of larger supermarkets in the area.
--There are a number of personal spaces around the flat where you can stow your stuff, so you can feel completely at home. From your own cupboard in the kitchen to special space in the fridge and even a shelf in the bathroom, we want you to feel like you fit in from the moment you arrive.
Check out our full story in our profile, but here is the short version: we're two guys in our early 30s, one American and one Italian, and we have two amazing cat daughters: an Italian cat named Alò and her younger "sister," aptly named Trouble, who sometimes thinks she's a dog. Both cats are extremely friendly and get on with our guests rather quickly.
We both love travelling ourselves, so we know the importance of finding the perfect place to stay when you're in a new city. We've spent the last few years hosting hundreds--if not thousands--of guests, as well as family, friends, and friends-of-family-and-friends, so we know what makes a great host. We welcome all types of guests--whether you're after peace, quiet and privacy or want us to be your tour guides, we are happy to oblige to make your stay in London a memorable one.
The guest bedroom is completely private, so it's all yours! The rest of the house is shared with us, however we are gone from early in the morning to late at night working, meaning you pretty much have full run of the place.
Общение с гостями
We regard our guests as friends and family, so if you're up for a group dinner, we're in! However, we definitely know the value of quiet alone time, so if you just want some rest and relaxation on your own time, that's cool too.
Другие важные подробности
We welcome our guests as new friends, and love to share new customs, ideas, even recipes! If there is anything we can do to make your stay feel more at home, give us a shout.
Rules are for schools, and we want you to feel at home while you are staying with us, so we just ask a few things to keep the place prim and proper:
1: Please take off shoes upon entering.
2: No smoking inside. We welcome smokers to stay with us, just please keep all smoking outside.
3: No rush on check out day, but if our next guests are due on the same day, please help us by giving us access to the room from 10am.
