Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca is a star! From pre-booking questions to aftercare (returning our deposit and even cash that we had left behind) Rebecca dealt with everything swiftly and often went the extra mile ensuring that our stay was extremely comfortable and stress free.

The house itself is exactly as seen in the photos, very spacious, modern and stylish with all home comforts provided as well as luxury linens/towels and appliances. On arrival the house had been spotlessly cleaned and was warm and inviting.

The location is perfect with every amenity close by. Despite its central location the house is in a private courtyard and therefore extremely quiet and peaceful, with free off-street parking, a definite bonus in a central London location.

In all our stay was just perfect, so much so that we are looking to re-book soon. Many Thanks Rebecca for such a wonderful service.

a quiet oasis in a hectic city

  • 5 of 5

We just spent ten days in this beautiful house. We regularly come to London and we have stayed in many hotels and apartments in different parts of our favourite city.

Honestly, this house was simply the best!

The location is perfect if you arrive by Eurostar. During your stay you can either opt for public transport or you can easily walk. Islington is a very nice part of London. It's pleasant to walk along the canal and this in both directions (towards Camden and Regent's park or towards Shoreditch).

Everything that has been said in the earlier reviews is true.

It is impossible to mention something negative about the house.

Above all, the way the booking was treated and the way the practical arrangements were made, ensured a pleasant feeling.

We can only hope that the house is available the next time we come to London!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our property! Really glad you enjoyed your time at our house and the local area - we also enjoy walking along the canal up to Camden and love Islington with all the shops/restaurants etc it has to offer. It is really pleasing to receive such a positive review about our house and the booking and we would love to have you back again next time you visit London.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our property - much appreciated! We are glad you found everything comfortable and clean and that your grandson enjoyed the toys and books. It is nice to hear that you would recommend our property. Sorry to hear that some of the kitchen appliances took time to work out. We do appreciate some appliances can be a little unclear and we would like to reassure you, and any future guests, that the care-taker on site, who works Monday to Friday mornings, is familiar with all of the appliances at our property and is happy to show guests how to operate any of the appliances.

Ideal base - convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Unlike many guests our visit was work-related and this was a perfect base. The location was perfect: convenient for King's Cross, within walking distance of Business Design Centre and had its own parking space. We had to take young children with us and all the toys were a godsend - they occupied and amused the children for hours. There are play parks close by and walks along the canal (feeding the ducks) were a source of delight. Rebecca was very helpful and replied by return to our query re stair gate. (The toddler soon learned to negotiate the stairs safely). We would recommend this property for a comfortable and convenient stay in London. It is spacious and well equipped.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our property. We're pleased to hear that our house was the perfect base for you! Having a young son ourselves, we can appreciate toys/DVD's help to keep young children amused. The local play park (Barnard Park in Islington) is only a short walk away and is great for young and older children. Thanks for your recommendation and we hope to welcome you back again, should work bring you back to London.

Wonderful apartment in North London

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very good located near by King´s Cross/St. Pancras, only five minutes by foot.

The description is accurate and the property was clean. We can recommend this apartment without reservation.

It was very quiet so that you can sleep as well as you if you were in the country.

King´s Cross/St. Pancras is ideal for traveling around with the underground because several lines cross.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our property. Its good to receive such positive feedback and that you would recommend our apartment without reservation! We are lucky to have excellent transport links close by at Kings Cross and as our property is in a development set back from the main road, it is quite peaceful for central London. If you and your family ever wish to return to London for a holiday - we would love to have you back again.

Parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine parfaite à Londres pour 6 personnes. L'appartement est très bien situé, à 5 mn à pied de Kings Cross, ce qui permet de se déplacer très facilement dans Londres que ce soit à bus ou en métro. Il est au calme, l'équipement est très complet (il y a même des adaptateurs de prises pour ceux qui n'en n'aurait pas assez...). Il est très propre et très agréable. Il y a un supermarché juste à côté et un thé excellent!

N'hésitez plus, foncez!

Merci encore à Rebecca qui a été très présente et attentive à nos moindres questions, la caution nous a été rendue immédiatement dès notre retour en France. Ce fut un plaisir ;-)
