Room with a comfortable king-size bed in this, quiet two-bedroom apt. where you will have a warm welcome.
It is a short walk to Kentish Town Tube on the Northern Line. Overground trains go directly to Gatwick and Luton Airports (about 1 hour) & the Eurostar International Station (5 mins).
There are many and frequent bus routes nearby to cover all parts of London. The Underground is less than 10 mins to the West End.
A great variety of local Shops, Banks and Restaurants in the High Street.
Your room is bright and airy with a very comfortable king-size bed with fresh bed linen, wardrobe, chest of drawers, TV and hair dryer. Guests describe my home as full of charm and I have collected some artefacts and interesting pieces over the years that always keep guests entertained and intrigued. This promises to make your stay here both engaging and memorable. There is a shared living room, kitchen, bathroom and separate toilet which are always clean and tidy.
The apartment is on the ground floor in a very peaceful and quiet setting yet extremely close to public transport.
Should you need another bedroom, I also rent out another room with king-size bed which provides exactly the same facilities: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/3097567
You will collect your key from a Key Box on your arrival and you have access to the kitchen and appliances as well as the lounge area in which to relax and unwind. You will share the bathroom, shower and toilet, but I am a considerate hostess who respects your privacy and needs.
Interaction with guests
Most of the time I will be present during your stay to offer a friendly face and any advice you may need during your stay here in London. However, I am also aware, should you need space to yourself.
For many years I was a registered Tourist Guide in London and the British Isles. I have a large collection of books and maps which guests are welcome to use.
Other things to note
Your key is to the front door which requires locking (so you cannot accidentally lock yourself out!). Because this is a private home, the bedroom doors do not have keys.
There is always a supply of things like yoghurt, muesli, porridge oats, eggs, bread and fruit for your breakfast needs.
I am pretty easy-going. All I ask is that you are considerate of the space and leave it as you find it.
Smoking on the balcony is allowed.
Pets are welcome if kept under control.

Just an ordinary woman who loves life. But I LOVE London and am a retired Registered London Tourist Guide. I only retired because life offers more than just work. Therefore I travel quite often to other countries or just thoroughly enjoy what London presents. I am knowledgeable about what things there are to see and do in London or the rest of the British Isles which you might not have heard about.
When visitors book with enough warning, there are things which might interest them and which I can arrange for them. You simply have to take my word for it! Theatre and concert venues are always on my list, as well as museums and exhibitions.
Otherwise I am happy to let you use my apartment with freedom to cook/wash clothes/chill out....
There is no AirBnB space for my other fluent language, which is Afrikaans. Yes, my original country is South Africa. When you have finished visiting the British Isles, do go there! Lovely!
Hosts are asked to state a life motto: If I can put my head on my pillow at night with a smile on my face, knowing I have not hurt anybody that day, I am happy.
