Overview

Islington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Come and stay in this stunning one bedroom Victorian period apartment on a quiet, leafy residential street in beautiful Crouch End. As a base, it is ideal for those wishing to visit the sites of London. The great public transport links will take you to the heart of town in a mere 25 minutes. Yet the peaceful nature of Crouch End will ensure a calm place to retreat back to after a long day of sightseeing. Relax in these beautiful surroundings and experience what it is like to live as a true Londoner!

Homely, clean, spacious and carefully furnished, your stay here will be one of luxury. Warm and welcoming, the flat boasts high ceilings, oak flooring, and an array of classic Victorian architectural details. Large sash windows pour sunlight into the glorious reception room. Enjoy a meal at the dining table in the bay window overlooking the lush greenery of the front garden. Snuggle up on the sofa with a good book, or relax in front of a film from the choice of DVDs. On a cold winter’s night, enjoy the warmth and glow of the open fire.

The apartment is fully equipped with all the conveniences of the modern world! This includes a large digital plasma tv with Virgin Media cable tv service, DVD player with selection of films and box-sets, super-speed wifi internet, ipod or iphone docking station to charge your devices or play your favourite tracks, automatic central heating, washing machine and drying rack, steam iron and ironing board, and a fully equipped kitchen, complete with fridge, freezer, gas hob, oven, coffee machine and smoothie blender. Towels and bed linen are also provided, and for those longer stays, a complementary weekly cleaning service and bed linen change is offered.

The benefit of staying in a London ‘village’ such as Crouch End, is that you have all amenities collected in one area, and right on your doorstep too. A two minute stroll down the road from the apartment is an array of local supermarkets, independent restaurants, traditional Victorian pubs, quirky cafes and boutique shops, should you wish to unwind away from the city centre. The area is not short of green open spaces and woodlands too, and for a bit of culture there are fringe theatres close by, cinemas to catch the latest films, even a Palace (although not of royalty), not to mention one of the most famous comedy stores in the world right at the end of the road.

London is a huge city encompassing far more than just the historic central area of the West End and the City. Away from the heart of the capital many of the old villages engulfed by the tide of urban expansion have survived to form fascinating and attractive suburbs. Crouch End is one of these, and surrounding this is Muswell Hill to the north, Hampstead and Highgate to the west, and Islington to the south. A visit to these local areas can really complement a trip to London.

Arriving from abroad, Heathrow airport is a direct tube ride to Finsbury Park (local underground station), which makes it the easiest and cheapest to get here. Gatwick is also a quick train ride away with links to Kings Cross station, only two tube stops away from the apartment. City Airport and Stansted are also easily accessible.

Being only 20 minutes away from St Pancras International Railway Station, makes getting to and from Europe on the Eurostar super quick and easy. With train tickets from £69 return, you could even hop over to Paris for the day!

Well, if any of the above sounds like it could be exactly what you would like to get out of a trip to London, check my online calendar, see if the price is right for your budget, and get in touch. I look forward to having you stay at Haringey Park Apartment....

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

There are many reasons to love this beautiful apartment. First, the listing accurately portrays its many features, but it's even lovelier than the pictures can show. You will feel like you are living in an Architectural Digest photo shoot, rich with architectural detail and pitch-perfect style. Everything is sparkling clean and in excellent working order. The owner is helpful, very nice, and easy to contact. Crouch End is a lovely spot - quiet, yet lively and filled with its own charm. Weary from a full day of London fun, we'd ride the tube home, eagerly anticipating our return to our beautiful flat. Public transportation is a breeze. (Americans, you can't imagine how great the bus and tube work well together!) Local pubs are close by. The Blue Legume serves fine breakfasts and lunches, and it's right down the block. After renting many Homeaway apartments in six different countries, I feel confident to say this apartment is in the very top category of excellence. We cannot wait to return!

WOW! How exceptional

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to chose the right superlatives to describe this flat. Interior furnishings impressive, lighting and fireplace make this a designers welcome home when you return from the busy city center via easy, fast tube/ bus combo.The place is impeccable, highly polished and furnished with everything you forgot and wish you had. Fine linens, robes; lots of thoughtful details abound.Crouch End is friendly and local. Our hosts were always available for every strange question. We travel a lot and this is our highest recommendation.

Very Special Apartment and Host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I LOVED staying in this apartment for two weeks. We were sad to leave. It's even nicer than it looks in the photos. Very comfortable and well stocked. We loved the neighborhood Crouch End. Very charming with many locally owned shops and cafes. Very responsive and helpful owner/host.

A few things to be aware of. There is no tube stop in Crouch End. You have to take a bus to Finsbury Park or Archway. Bus rides take about 20 minutes and the buses run late and frequently. The apartment is in a building with two or three other apartments. We could hear neighbors moving around but nothing disturbing. If you sleep lightly (like me) you might want to bring ear plugs though. It is on a very quiet neighborhood street.

There is no clothes dryer which is common. There is a huge drying rack. There is also no dishwasher but the kitchen is very pleasant to cook in which we enjoyed a few nights bc there is a great fishmonger and butcher in Crouch End as well as goodies that we bought on farther afield excursions in London like Borough Market. The kitchen is very well stocked and the host even bought us some things for us that we suggested.

Lastly, if you're an American (again, like me) you're not going to find an American king-size bed very often in London. And this bed really is king-size. And very comfy.

I hope to stay here again on my next visit and recommend it 100%.

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an enjoyable time in this lovely apartment in Crouch End! It was spacious and so beautifully renovated as well as spotlessly clean. Sarah was a very gracious hostess who was most attentive to our needs. When a hot water tap stopped working, it was replaced the same day. Transportation to downtown London was easy with a bus stop at the end of the street and a short ride to the tube station. Crouch End was a close by and offered restaurants, shops and grocery stores. I would highly recommend this property!

Adorable apartment in lovely neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for a visit to London. The neighborhood is awesome- very charming and accessible. There are several stores within a five minute walk. The kitchen is well-stocked with the basics (cutlery, pans, oils, spices) for cooking. With such a great cooking space and access to stores, we were able to really save and eat-in several times.

The apartment is well represented with the pictures shared in the profile. The proximity to the bus-line is easily walkable and it is a short bus-ride to the tube.

There are many great stores and restaurants in Crouch End. My favorite was at the end of the street the apartment is on and it is called The Blue Legume.

Sarah was extremely helpful at every turn and paid close attention to stock the apartment with high-quality items like really nice sheets, good cutlery, thick towels, candles- everything was top-notch.

My only complaint and the ONLY reason I did not give the apartment five stars is the noise from the neighbors. For city-dwellers, used to apartment living, this may not be an issue. However, if you are not used to that, it can be a bit off-putting. The downstairs neighbors have a very loud family and the upstairs neighbor is somewhat loud. The noise never kept me from sleeping, but was unpleasant at times when I wanted to unwind, away from the noise of the city. I would not let this deter you (I will certainly be happy to visit the apartment again)... I just wanted to share, so you have all the information- good and bad. I think it is just the nature of apartment being in such an old building- the thin walls probably cannot be avoided.

Overall, my stay here was extremely pleasant and I highly recommend this apartment.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, beautifully decorated and in a lovely area, could not have asked for more. Really enjoyed our stay here, Sarah met us at the flat and was friendly and helpful. Crouch End is a great area to stay in with its many cafes, restaurants, bars and independent shops. Plus its easy to get into central London, either take the 91 bus or catch the tube from Finsbury Park on the Victoria line (its 5 mins to the tube station on the W7 bus from Crouch End or a 20 minute walk down Crouch Hill). The apartment itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is beautifully decorated throughout, as you can see from the photos. A lovely cosy place to come back to after a day out in London. Would definitely stay here again.
