Hi there and welcome to our flat. We’re looking for some awesome guests to keep our happy home while we’re out of town. It’s located in Central London's Islington neighbourhood on Oakley Road which is a beautifully tree lined street with Victorian conversions. It’s not a through street to busy roads so it's super quiet yet a short walk to Islington’s happening hub, Upper Street or to trendy Shoreditch/Hackney.
The inside is very spacious (especially for London standards) at just over 700sq ft with its own private entrance. We recently renovated the entire flat from the kitchen, floors, bathroom, and garden – all with new appliances for you to use including a new oven, washing machine, and dishwasher.
It’s classic London architecture updated for the 21st century. From our giant vintage map to the photos on the wall, the interior reflects our passion for travelling. Besides the design, one of our favourite things about the flat is the abundance of natural light we receive because of our south facing windows and skylights on the extension. Soak it in!
First stop on the tour is the bedroom – it’s very spacious. As avid travellers, we know that a bed can make or break a trip. That’s why we provide our guests with clean luxury linens on our double bed that are so comfortable you’ll probably want to bring them home with you!
There’s also a full sized pull out couch that sleeps an additional two people. We how important it is to have fresh clean and fluffy towels and linens so we source these from a professional company for each guest.
Next stop is our stunning outdoor garden perfect for a bottle of wine and an evening barbecue. Put your feet up. You’ll need to after an eventful day exploring the city. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances - everything you'd expect to cook at home is there: a Bosch refrigerator, new oven/stove, dishwasher, toaster, kettle to boil water, and a french press for coffee.
A few other bonuses we have to mention… we have fast wifi, there is private parking outside for bicycles and plug converters if you’re coming from abroad. We have a hair dryer for the ladies, shower gel and shampoo and clean fluffy towels for everyone. For your comfort and safety we have installed Nest thermostat and smoke alarm.
The full flat and private garden of course!
