About this listing

Spacious and light double room, very central in a quiet residential street super well connected by buses (seconds away) and underground stations. Me or my mother Sylvia will take care of you. We are very easygoing and we want you to feel free and at home.

The space

Large double bedroom in a clean and cosy 3 bed/2 bath apartment. The room faces a quiet residential street (Manor Gardens), has a built-in wardrobe for your use, double glazed windows for complete silence and a very comfortable medium-soft bed.

The apartment is within a modern gated development just off Holloway Road. We are on the second floor with easy access from the street (without having to go through the main gate). There is no elevator but if you have lots of luggage I'll be happy to help out carry! There´s a large communal green space great for sunbathing in the summer.

There are two bedrooms available to rent via airbnb and I'm in the third one. I'm quite easygoing, friendly with normal working hours although I travel a lot for work. So when I'm not home, my mom Sylvia will be at your disposal.

Guest access

I'd like you to feel completely free and at home whether you stay for a night or a few weeks. You will get keys to the apartment so you can feel free to come in and out when you wish and use the kitchen and all appliances when you like - help yourself to tea & coffee and if you're cooking you can use the basics from our kitchen (salt, spices, olive oil, etc).

Interaction with guests

Happy to chat over a cup of tea at home and equally glad to respect your space and privacy. Do please communicate your needs. I'd also be glad to make any recommendations around town if its your first time visiting. I'm always available on my mobile if not at home.

Other things to note

We are flexible to offer you an early check-in or a late check-out depending on the guests staying before or after you. If not possible, then the standard 13:00 check-in and 12:00 check out policy will apply.

Healthy breakfast available for £7 per person. Freshly squeezed juice or smoothie, fruits, cereals, breads, marmalades, tea, coffee, eggs, etc. Just tell me what you like, whether any allergies or intolerance and it'll be waiting for you at the kitchen table in the morning ;)

Steve's place was in a great location, 1min walk to bus to get to tube, great access to London. Room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Sylvia was an amazing host, she went out of her way to make us comfortable and was happy to help in any way we needed. Everything in the home was clean, neat and tidy. Sylvia and Steve are very friendly and lovely to have a chat with too. We would stay again!

Was in London for a training course at the nearby hospital. Decided last minute to stay locally rather than traipse out to stay with family in Surrey. Wonderful response and room was made ready at very short notice! Good connections to Camden and local nightlife. Very comfortable and quiet room.

Steve's place is in a great location - in a residential area but close to central London with good public transport access. We really only needed a place to sleep- in late and out early so did not have a great deal of interaction with the host but both Steve and his Mum were very friendly.

I'm Mexican/German and have lived in London for 7 years now. I'm a wellness consultant and aquatic bodywork practitioner (a sort of dance-like/yoga/massage therapy in water) and travel a lot for work teaching and leading retreats apart from two treatment practices in London. Prior to London I studied theatre in Rome and music in Havana. When traveling I enjoy meeting local people, immersing into the culture and allowing the journey to happen somewhat unplanned.
