We recently stayed at the apartment in Barnet. The pre-arrival communications via email with Nadia were excellent---she always provided rapid and clear responses to questions. She met us at the apartment at the pre-arranged time and quickly explained the various workings of the apartment, electricity, shower/bath, washing machine, TV. There is also a binder in the apartment explaining these various operations. The Wi-Fi was not available due to an ISP problem, but this has now been fixed. The hot water system is on a timer, but hot water from the shower (with a separate heater) is always available.
The apartment was clean, but small (by North American standards), consisting of a living room, kitchen and one bedroom (double bed); a mattress was also available for use on the floor in the living room, if needed. The apartment was fine for 2 people, and 3 would work as well, but 4 would be a bit tight.
The apartment is about 30 min from central London. However travel is very easy by taking the nearby bus to the tube station (Arnos Grove) and taking the Piccadilly line to central London (or to Heathrow for that matter, about 75 min). Nearby are a grocery store (Tesco express, open till 11 pm), several pubs, and an excellent Indian take away.
In general, we would highly recommend the apartment to anyone. It meets all criteria for enjoying a wonderful stay in London.
Nice place to relax and get away. Nadia was helpful too.
Nadia was a pleasure to work with. Honest and upfront...no hidden fees like some of the other owners listed on this site. The apartment was immaculate. Well stocked and the view of the adjacent walking path/soccer field is charming. This apartment is about a mile walk from the Piccadilly tube line. The location is approximately five miles outside of the heart of London; perfect for us as we had a car and took day trips to other areas in the UK. The building has free parking which was a plus. The neighborhood was quiet and safe.
Only negative aspect of this apartment was the walls seem thin; we could hear the water running in other units and muffled voices. But the price was right, the owner wonderful, the unit clean and well stocked. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
Nadia, the owner, is very very considerate and responsive. The apartment is in a peaceful vicinity, and the suburb has good access to central London.
My family stayed there for a month and they really enjoy the quietness and surrounding verdure. The flat is immaculate and has everything needed from linen to kitchenware. Nadia, the owner is very friendly and understanding regarding the wear and tear. We will definitely use her services again should we need another holiday rental. Thank you Nadia!
We are very glad we stayed with this friendly and helpful owner. Also, the flat was very clean, tidy and bright. Everything was provided for us and we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay in North London as the flat is also close to amenities. We would recommend this place to anyone and we will stay there again especially that we got our deposit in full even after I clumsily broke a wine glass!!!!
