Our place is a light-filled, spacious, elegant three bed apartment on Green Lanes in Harringay (best foodie street in London IMHO). It's within ten minutes' walk of Manor House Tube as well as Harringay/Harringay Green Lanes stations (so very easy to get around London). The neighbourhood is fun, vibrant and family-oriented, w/ great cheap restaurants and lots of green space nearby. It would be perfect for couples, academics on long-stay, and families w/ small children

The space

The flat is a family home on the second floor at the end of a terrace on Green Lanes, a vibrant high street. It's full of south-facing windows so it gets a lot of light. And while the street is fairly busy, it's all double-glazed so the street noise shouldn't bother you too much; and also, the 24-hour groceries and super-fast transport links are more than adequate compensation. The rooms are all linked by a long corridor:
* Three decent sized bedrooms: two doubles with large beds and one single (currently a nursery, so good for a child!)
* A kitchen: I love to cook so it's well-equipped w/ gas hob/electric cooker/microwave/dishwasher/washing machine/Nutribullet/juicer etc
* Bathroom: bath and dual shower, loo, sink as you'd expect...
* Front room: this is a lovely space w/ L-shaped sofa, TV w/ Netflix etc, hi-fi, jack lead and vinyl player, booze cabinet etc.

We stayed in Richard's wonderful flat for three months and were very happy, comfortable, and felt totally integrated into central London and the local neighbourhood of Harringay. They have set up their flat in such a way that it feels welcoming, warm, and truly like a home from the minute you walk in. This is to be commended, since after staying in many Airbnbs we know from experience that other properties sadly feel like they have only been set up to rent to strangers, not as a home to receive guests. As a host, Richard is fast to respond, understanding, and very accommodating. He was nice enough to lend us his son's cot that he brought in from storage for our extended stay. The apartment is blessed with an incredible amount of light throughout the day, and you can watch the setting sun beyond the hills of Crouch End from the living room. It has a well-equipped kitchen, with a fantastic stove and double oven that we used daily for all our meals. Richard left a large selection of pots, pans, plates, good knives, coffee maker, mixer, etc.--here, we had everything we needed and then some. The kids room was ideal for our son, and this property would perfectly suit a young family. That said, I don't see why it couldn't equally accommodate different groups, as the separation between rooms makes for good privacy if it were a group of friends instead, for example. The neighbours were helpful if needed but mostly kept to themselves. We never really heard much from either above or below. The home is stocked with an outstanding selection of books that should keep any guest happy and entertained. From PG Wodehouse in the bathroom, Zadie Smith in the lounge, David Harvey in the back, and classic paperbacks littered throughout, we never tired of browsing through the quality titles. The heating was efficient and more than sufficient to keep the house cosy during the colder months. There was plenty of linen and towels, and the beds were comfortable and warm. The only thing I think could be improved is the range of the wifi, which has trouble reaching the end rooms. But then again, being surrounded by such good books makes one glad to spend a little time away from the distractions of our online devices. Living above Green Lanes made life so convenient. There are multiple 24 hour supermarkets at your doorstep that somehow manage to match and often undercut prices at Sainsbury's. Their selection of fruit and veg is excellent, and we almost never had to shop anywhere else. Lining the street are a cool selection of bars, new hipster cafes halfway to Turnpike Lane, and smaller shops that cater for whatever you could possibly need during your stay (e.g. butcher, hairdresser, restaurants, takeaway pizza, and so on). The Salisbury Hotel was the standout for us, a vintage pub that is full of local families, and stocks plenty of good beer on tap. Green...

We had a great week at Richard's place. The apartment is very nicely furnished and has everything one might need as a family: spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, wifi, games and books, several 24/7-shops, take-aways and restaurants just a few steps away, buses to central london in front of the house. Richard was very easy to reach, flexible and provided us with all the information needed to get there and get around. We can recommend the place without hesitation.
