Very cool 2 bedroom flat in lovely Islington just off Essex Rd. It is located on the top floor of a converted Victorian schoolhouse and has loads of character including 20ft cathedral ceilings, spectacular windows and 2 full bathrooms.

El lugar

There are two large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a large living and dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. The flat also has a large entrance staircase area which I have never quite figured out what to do with – except hang art – but suggestions welcome!

The flat is very quiet and is located near to Essex Rd. Highbury/Islington and Angel tube stations are about 12min away and there are many buses traveling down Essex Rd to central London.

I travel quite a lot so the entire flat is often available. However, if I am in London, I will also rent out one of the rooms. Feel free to check with me.

There are 2 bedrooms which accommodate 4 guests nicely. If there is a 5th guest, you can draw straws for who gets the couch in the living room (although it is a very nice B&B Italia sofa and is as wide as a single bed so he/she may be the luckiest of the group).

Disponible para huéspedes

A few perks:
Wifi, Sonos, Apple TV, Sky+, Nespresso machine – although great coffee located just down the road. And if you are a runner, I can recommend a few routes that will take you along the canal or Shoreditch park.
I also have Oystercards available so if you arrive from the airport by taxi, I can help you get started with public transportation when you leave the flat for the first time.

The entrance is via a gated and secure courtyard – always a welcome asset in central London.

The flat is on the 3rd floor of a converted Victorian schoolhouse. There is no lift as it is a listed building.

Una casa espectacular, sorprendente, muy bien diseñada, no le falta ningún detalle. A nosotras nos gustó especialmente el sistema de música que daba a toda la casa una sensación de bienestar increíble. Gord es un Host atento, detallista y muy amigable que te deja a mano una muy buena selección de libros de fotografía. Otro detalle a destacar, la vista de la ciudad desde el hall de la casa... Imprescindible disfrutarla de noche! Ha sido una muy buena experiencia, diferente, de disfrutar Londres. Altamente recomendable.

Gord is a great host, wonderful with communication and making sure we had everything we needed. The flat is gorgeous and easy to feel at home, very comfortable and spacious as well. The bus stop is just around the corner as well as a couple of grocery stores and restaurants. The tube station is a pleasant walk from the flat and doesn't take long, with shops, cafes, and etc. along the way. If my family and I come back to London any time soon, this place would be our first choice hands down!

This is my first experience using Airbnb and I was skeptical. I emailed Gord with questions about cleanliness, amenities, distance to public transportation etc and Gord will reply within 24 hours everytime. He even offered different options on how to get to his place from the airport and we used his recommendation and loved it. Overall, our stay at Gord's apartment was fantastic. Location: Is safe as we were out till late most nights. It's conveniently situated from a bus stop about 2 blocks away. You can take most of the buses to the nearest subway or there's a bus that goes to Piccadilly, Soho, Chinatown area. For those who are travelling with huge suitcases like us (family of 4 on a 16-day trip) need to be prepared to walk up the flight of steps to the 3rd floor. Well, it's only one-time. Cleanliness: All rooms, bathrooms, bed sheets and linens were clean. Amenities: It's equipped with almost everything you have at home, even apple TV. I will definitely recommend Gord's apartment to anyone who is looking for a place to feel like home - comfortable and clean.

Great apartment! True to the pictures. Great location if you are doing things in Shoreditch. Excellent restaurants and bars nearby. We really enjoyed our stay! Gord was very nice and helpful, he reached out to us a couple times to make sure everything was going smoothly and asked if we needed any help. Nearest tube is about a 15 minute walk. Very convenient! Would definitely stay again!

Gord's place is as advertised. Inviting and comfortable. Although I never met him in person, he was a great host. He made everything easy. We walked right in and made ourselves at home. The neighborhood is quiet and the bus stop is one block away, which will take you to stations and locations throughout the city. He also has oyster cards ready to use upon your arrival. There is a washer and dryer, which came in very handy with four women. As most of you airbnbers know, staying in a home is preferable to a hotel experience. And Gord's place was no exception. I would recommend it.

Gord is an awesome host! Although I did not meet him in person, I could tell that he is also an amazing person. He has a great taste on all the decorations and details (the lights, the arts, the furniture, the magazines, the fishes, etc.) in this flat. I highly recommend his place if you are traveling to London.

I'm originally from Canada and have been living and working in various European countries for the past 17 years. I am happy to have now made London my home. I'm the publisher of a design, interiors and fashion magazine and travel frequently.
Love sharing insider travel tips - my specialty is where to get the best coffee or latte to start your day. I have recommendations as far reaching as Swakopmund, Namibia to Porthleven, Cornwall - and of course, the perfect location around the corner from my flat in Islington.
