Overview

Islington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Delicious Central London one bedroom apartment.

Midway between King's Cross St Pancras and Angel stations, a traditional Georgian residential neighbourhood awaits your visit. For over twenty years this home has been a convenient pad for music and film industry creatives. A perfect place from which to explore London and visit the well known sights and attractions. Close to superb Islington eateries such as Ottolenghi and Jamie Oliver's Italian - as well as many others - this comfortable first floor flat is brilliant as a base for a taste of authentic London.

This is vibrant Islington, on the northern edge of Central London with its eclectic mix of bars and pubs, shops and antiques, theatres and cinemas. A Sainsbury's supermarket - open til midnight on weekdays and late at the weekends - will allow you to stock up on your essentials, whatever time you arrive. In the apartment you will find all you need for your stay, from fluffy towels to broadband and wifi.

This is modern metropolitan living as convenient as you need it to be.

The great thing about not staying in a hotel is that *you* get to decide when to get up! No set breakfast times to share with all those other tourists. You can just wallow at leisure in luxurious bedding, waking to your own music using the integrated iPhone charger or find local radio stations to set your mood.

Indulge in energising hot water for a shower or bath with fluffy Clarissa Hulse towels to completely relax. The salon style hairdryer and iron with ironing board (if you must!) will complete your look whilst your partner is out getting the fresh stuff.

Around the corner Chapel Market is bustling 7 days a week, brimming with good value London necessities. Get that freshly baked bread, enjoy some healthy fruits or just go for that full english breakfast! In the green park opposite the flat, you can join energetic types for a morning jog or catch some sunshine (when available!). At the bottom of the hill, go to Cally Pool for a quick swim.

Meantime, why not plan the rest of your day? Some useful guidebooks are yours to use at the flat. Broadband internet and wifi are always on, because we understand you want to stay connected.

If you are staying a bit longer, feel free to use the efficient AEG washer dryer. The 30 degree time saving wash gets things done in just over an hour. If there are more than two of you, the sofa in the lounge converts to a double bed and there are two single quilts to get comfortable. Plenty of towels for four but remember this 35 square metre apartment is bijou rather than palatial. We do find it comfortable for ourselves and our two teenage children. There is another iPod/iPhone charger with speakers to enjoy your music in the lounge.

And because we know that a good coffee or tea *whenever you want* can be essential, we have made sure that the kitchen comes fully kitted out for that perfect crema espresso or that fragrant cuppa.

In the kitchen you will find the best pans ever, if you want to make your own meal. Easy to clean hob and combination oven microwave makes cooking a pleasure. Elegant wine glasses with plenty of modern dishes will quickly make your meal at your London home taste yum! Don't want to cook? Just order a takeaway for delivery within the hour. Atmospheric lighting gets you in the mood to just crash out in your own London hideaway. Digital TV and on demand films (these do cost a bit extra!) are easily chosen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Our family of Mum, Dad and two teenage boys had a very comfortable stay in this very conveniently located apartment. It lived up to the owner's description. Booking was very straightforward, professional and friendly. The accommodation was very comfortable and although small, it contained everything you need and certainly is much better equipped than most accommodation available for holiday lets. There was an umbrella for rainy days and shopping bags too! Islington is a great base from which to explore London, lots and lots of cafes, shops and great transport links. Would recommend this apartment for a couple or a family of 4.”

Great stay, and wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

I was sending my 19 year old daughter and her friend on their first trip overseas on their own. I feel so fortunate and blessed to have found Maryke and her flat. The girls were delayed on their trip there, with an unexpected layover in NYC. Maryke and Daniel kept in touch with us throughout, and took such wonderful care of the girls when they arrived. Daniel stocked the kitchen prior to their arrival, and was there to greet them, so the girls would had food and a kind welcome when they arrived on Boxing Day. It was like having family waiting for our girls, and made even the unexpected changes in travel plans go smoothly. The flat was wonderful, with a great location, but the owner is really what made the experience outstanding.

Owner's Response: Hello Debra, thank you so much for your kind words. We were very happy to accommodate the girls and make sure they were settled, particularly with the unscheduled stay over in NYC. It can be a little daunting when sending youngsters off travelling but it is just such a great way of them getting a different perspective. If the opportunity is there, travelling can really contribute to working out what you want to do with your own life, and so it is so good to encourage this whenever possible. So, we are very glad that we were able to help out and we were really pleased to hear that the girls enjoyed the Islington vibe and their London experience! All the best, Maryke

Friendly flat

  • 5 of 5

Very nice little flat - everything is there for a minor vacation - and everything worked just OK. Really nice area, quite and next to a park. Ten minutes away a lot of shops, restaurants and pubs.

Very friendly velcome although we arrive rather late. Really good service.

We have recommended the flat to all our friend that eventually would go to London.

Loved the Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Good location in a nice neighborhood. Clean, comfortable and modern. The washer/dryer was a big convenience. Two large windows face the street corner, great for people watching in the summer. The grocery two blocks away had everything - crumpets, English muffins (which they just call muffins) bangers, etc. Nice bakery around the corner at Chapel Market. Hot water in the shower was a bit sporadic, a minor inconvenience. We would definitely recommend this flat, a good value and a great place to live like the locals.

Owner's Response: Hello Matt, It sounds like you really did live London like a local during your stay, enjoying the Islington vibe! We recently had the hot water supply checked so hopefully this is fine now. Thanks for looking after our apartment and see you again! All the best, Maryke

A Small yet Efficient Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location--away from the main tourist traps but easily accessible by metro. Maryke and Eti were nothing but gracious during our booking process. The flat had everything our family needed. Just minor critiques including the locks, which were a bit screwy and some of the furnishings were not the greatest quality. Overall, though, the flat was fully functional and added to the pleasure of our London stay.

Owner's Response: Hello Michael, Just want to assure you that the screwy locks have been replaced! Naturally there is wear and tear on the furniture which we replace when necessary. We have new dining room chairs for example. Glad that you enjoyed the Central London Islington location and that you had a pleasant stay! Hopefully see you again!
