Welcome to my home and welcome to this amazing city! This is a beautifully modern 2 bedroom apartment with a nice garden in a fantastic location.
The apartment has a really spacious and minimalist living room with modern features. There is a large comfy sofa for guests to use where you can put your feet up in the evenings, kick back and relax! The sofa bed can sleep 1 adult comfortably, or 2 small children.
Fancy an evening off? Then sit back, relax and turn on the flat screen TV. There are plenty of channels for you to enjoy. The living area is also home to the laptop friendly workspace if you feel like doing some work! Top tip for your morning coffee, try out Cafe 42. It has a fantastic selection of pastries, coffee, breakfast, salads and home cooking.
If cooking a gourmet meal at home is more your thing, then rest assured the kitchen will have everything you need in it such as all the basic condiments, and as an added extra we make sure that there is also always plenty of tea, coffee and sugar so that you can make yourself a traditional British cuppa in the morning! There are also all the mod-cons such as toaster, kettle and dishwasher that you might expect. We really want to ensure that you have a comfortable stay here in London!
There are two bedrooms in the house. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, bedroom number two has a double and the there is a sofa bed in the living room for two more people. Both bedrooms are spacious with colourful homely touches. There is also plenty of storage space for guests to store all their belongings.
Finally, the property also benefits from 1 bathroom. The bathroom is bright and contemporary in style and has a bath (which really is a treat in central London)! The bathroom will always come stocked with plenty of white fluffy towels and all the essential toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel and hand soap that you need to ensure that you have a comfortable stay in London.
The apartment comes with an iron and ironing board so that you can look fresh for exploring the city or for any business meetings! There is a laundromat at the end of the street if you need any washing done. A baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
The apartment is your own. Cleaned professionally with fresh luxury linens, it's prepared for each new visitor.

I would recommend downloading an app called Around Me and putting in my postcode N1 7HR. A list of everything you need from a pharmacy to supermarkets and restaurants around the postcode will come up!

Moorefields Eye Hospital on City Road is a ten min walk away. For Homerton Hospital, take the 394 bus from the corner of Cropley and Shaftesbury Street for approx 15mins.
Other things to note
There is a washing machine but I would prefer this isn't used on short term lets. It is possible to use it but the water pressure is low for some reason so I have a garden watering can (green plastic) that I use to fill up the machine faster on first and second cycles which can be complicated to figure out. The washing machine is usable but there is a laundromat also at the end of the street. Turn Right onto Cropley Street then right on Murray Grove and the laundry is right there next to the cafe. This is a washer/dryer so the dryer controls are on the right of the dial displays. I don't mind if people want to use the dryer only. It works fine.

Bugs, pics not representative,
Upon check-in the place hadn't been cleaned yet..at 6pm. Long night/day traveling from the US and all we wanted to do was crash but we had to leave the apartment until they could clean it which took a couple hours. Told we would get cleaning fee refunded but didn't.
First night got up to get water in kitchen and there were bugs all over the counters and cabinets. Continued to see roaches and other bugs entire stay. Was told after we left they didn't see any bugs. I have pictures, sooo. Didn't feel comfortable cooking so had to go out to eat for all meals. Kind of defeated the purpose of getting a flat with a kitchen.
Pictures make the place look huge...it is not. Leather couch isn't there anymore. Replaced with smaller futon. Chair at desk replaced with a plastic stool. Kitchen is small but functional(I assume as we didn't use it b/c of bugs)
At one point a man buzzed continuously until we answered. He said someone has shown him the flat a couple weeks earlier and had rented it to him for a year starting the day after we got there. Not landlords fault but that means someone has keys to flat and isn't afraid to use them.
Was told we would get a refund of 50% off one night. Never received it. Was hoping for a clean pleasant experience but did not get one.
I would NOT recommend this place to anyone unless you like living with bugs in your kitchen.
We are terribly sorry once again for the issues which arose during your stay.
We were under the impression that the pest problem had been eradicated by pest control. It was truly unfortunate that they resurfaced during your trip. I can assure you that we are taking your constructive feedback extremely seriously and working hard to ensure that no future guests have the experiences as you did.
Regarding your refund. As discussed over email, your refund has indeed been issued. We apologise that it has taken time to reach you. It can sometimes take up to 15 working days for the transaction to be processed and for the money to reach your account due to the delay with international banking.
We do hope that you still managed to enjoy your time in London. Thank you again for being so co-operative throughout your stay. We still enjoyed hosting you!
Sehr gute Lage. Ruhige Ecke. Wohnung praktisch.
Nice guest to host and would love to host him again soon!
