Great friendly and respectful postgraduate housemates (3 women, 1 boy). In a quiet, trendy, clean, green and charming street 3 blocks away from amenities such as restaurants, coffee, shops, parks, woods, pubs, and cinema. The room is the only one in the 1st floor.

The space

Double room in a big new house in East Finchley. Viewings available!
Perfect if you need time to settle a bit and find a long term place in London without rush, bt also available for longer lets upon requests. Any reservation 3 days or longer is welcomed.

5 minutes to the tube (Northern Line - East Finchley)
20 minutes in tube to Kings Cross (no changing lines)

It is in a quiet, trendy, clean and charming street with lovely neighbors with amenities, such as shops, restaurants, pubs, parks and cinemas, 3 blocks away.

The room is the only one in the ground floor and it is very big, with drawers, sofa, wooden floor, decorative chimney, double bed (now a wooden bed and new memory foam/bamboo fabric mattress) and a toilet room across the hall. *please try to keep the mattress protector on :)*
The room comes with bed linen and pillows, The room has a huge window and I've installed curtains that block the sun for a better sleep. Otherwise, the room is quite light and sunny.

The house has, clothes washer, drying racks, one shower/bathtub, two separate w/c (one next to the room), kitchen, free parking space inside the house property, back garden, and living room.

You will be sharing the house with 4 phd students (sociology, computer science, gender studies, theatre) 27-34 who are easy going, chilled, neat and will give you a very warm welcome so you will feel at home. We respect the privacy of our guests but are all very open to give advice on London adventures, or to hang sometimes, etc.

I usually rent my room because I do a research visits or because I visit my family in Mexico. This time I am preferably looking for long term lets but also open to short-lets.

Please message me if you have any questions or need more information! :)

The room is really comfortable, I felt like Home in Lupita's house. It is well located, quite and peaceful area, around twenty five minutes to king cross st. through tube. I didn't have the chance to meet Lupita, however, her housemates are really nice, helpful and friendly people. And she continued giving me advices through phone. Definitely Lupita's house will be my home in every-time I will be in London

Everything was perfect! The room is huge and comfy, a lovely living room and a fully equipped kitchen. All the house is very well decorated and holds very good vibes. Location is very good, short walking distance from the tube - 20mins to Kings Cross. Lupita and all the flat mates are super friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended!

I am from Mexico and yes! I do love good tacos. Moved to London five years ago to do a master's degree in Public Policy and stayed fora PHD in Sociology nd Gender Studies.
I love skating and running. Back home I had two pups, two cats, a green/yellow parrot that sang children's songs thanks to my neighbour's kids and that cursed a bit thanks to my pa, oh and I had a turtle too. I miss so much the warm weather of Mexico and the sun that if I'm travelling I will usually seek for sunny latinlike places like Italy or Greece.
I try and go back home as often as my work allows, that´s why my room is in airbnb. I hope you love my room as much as I do! :)
