I am a professional and a company director. Having run my own business for the last 15 years, which is actually renting out villas in the South of France and Morocco, I know how important holidays are! I have a family and share my time between the South of France and the UK.
I love London and the Highbury area which I hope my guests will enjoy as much as I do - with so many new lovely shops and restaurants on your doorstep, and the Arsenal station less than 2 minutes away you really are getting the very best of the London experience.
Alissa Knight purchased this apartment in 2010
I love London, and especially Islington which has undergone a transformation in the last decade, from trendy but slightly 'studentie' in feel to a vibrant and fashionable area it is today. Restaurants like Ottolenghi in Upper street, the 'Everyman' cinema, where you can order a glass of champagne to be brought directly to your plush leather sofa, make exploring it a real delight.
Most importantly the flat is literally 5 minutes from King's Cross station so you could be on euro-star and in Paris in 2 and a half hours. Picadilly circus is less than 10 minutes away and so is Covent Garden, so the flat is ideally located to be in central London within minutes. The fact that is less than a 100 meters from the Arsenal tube station makes getting on a train a quick and unstressful experienc
100 per cent convenience, best London shopping, proximity to restaurants and a feeling of 'community' in the Stadium
. The flat was ideal and we'll certainly use it again because it's so close to our daughter's home and well located for transport, shops and restaurants, not that we needed to eat out over Christmas! The car parking arrangement worked well and meant that we didn't have to worry about parking tickets and could pack the car the night before we left. Maureen was lovely and so helpful in explaining everything.
Great place to stay when in London. Highly recommended
Beautiful apartment that houses history. Great location. Glad we didn't stay in Kensington; because it forced us to explore public transit- buses and underground.... What a wonderful adventure because we explored boroughs that were not touristy but authentically local! Great restaurants , pubs and cafés... Also some bad ones, but the gems stood out. Good value for your money. Highly recommended.Wonderful and kind owner.
We were greeted by a caretaker and shown to the flat. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Alissa was very accommodating with our arrival and departure times for which we are very appreciative!
The location was great. It was very close to the Arsenal station on the Piccadilly Line. My boyfriend is a huge Arsenal fan and loved being able to experience the history of Highbury and the excitement of an Arsenal game at Emirates Stadium only blocks away. Enjoyed morning walks in Gillespie Park which is also very close to the flat. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
We stayed in this flat for a week, and it gave us a true experience of spending time in a London neighborhood where school children in uniforms walk to past our bedroom window in the morning and adults hustle to the Arsenal Tube Station to get to work. Getting to the London sights was very easy because the Arsenal Tube station is literally right out the back gates of this complex. This flat had EVERYTHING we could have imagined we might need. We walked to one of the small markets close by and cooked all our dinners and had breakfast items on hand before we would set out to sightsee in London. Returning to the flat after a day full of activity was relaxing and the perfect place to recharge our batteries and plan the next day. Alissa was so helpful to us before our arrival. We had never been to England, and she took the time to answer all of our questions before we arrived and continued to be available for us to contact should we have needed anything. We were sad to leave this property and would love to return to London one day and rent this same flat again if it were available. We would highly recommend this place to our family and friends.
Our second time in this property in the Arsenal Stadium - we would certainly have returned earlier if the apartment had not been booked when we would have liked to stay. This shows the attraction of the flat: extremely well kept, spotlessly clean, spacious, very quiet, a marvellous view into the former football grounds. You can still feel the Gunners' spirit in the historic East Stand, where the flat is located. Exchanging the keys was very easy, and we did not have any problems whatsoever during our week in the Stadium.
The proximity to Arsenal tube Station is very handy, the restaurants .in Highbury and on Blackstock Road most likely suit every palate. We also enjoyed strolls down Upper Street in Islington.
We were very sad to leave, but look forward to returning later this year.

We rented this apartment for our visit to London and we couldn't have chosen a better place. It was even better than the pictures, spotless, new and soooo quiet you wouldn't believe you are in London, just 20 minutes away from Piccadilly Circus on the Piccadilly Line.
Alissa is a fantastic host, she managed to make us feel welcome and took care of every need, even if she wasn't able to meet us personally.
There are no words really to fully describe how much we enjoyed our stay, I will recommend it to all my friends going to London and will certainly try to be back next year.
Thanks Alissa for your kindness, see you soon
