About the Homestay
Hey I'm Jac and I own and live in a top floor maisonette in a converted Victorian property located in a quiet leafy suburb off Camden Square, near the trendy gastro pub the Lord Stanley. My home is a beautiful 3 bedroom sun shiny flat with 2 bathrooms and a roof terrace which has stunning views of north London and is great for sun bathing and evening meals.
The flat is light and airy with a large lounge and a separate dining room area to eat and work in. The kitchen, which you have full use of, has all appliances and microwave.
This is a female household and the downstairs bathroom is exclusively yours to use. There are house rules and 'leaving as you find it' is an important one. The flat is very clean and tidy and guest are required to keep it so.
I have no children or pets.
I work as a psychotherapist in London which can be stressful but is rewarding. I enjoy live comedy, watching TV, going to the cinema, having dinner parties, eating out, keeping fit, reading, holidays abroad and tennis.
This is a non-smoking household.
There are parking bays outside the property which you will have to pay for if you wish to park your car.

I found Jacqui to be a very warm and hospitable person and I was quickly made to feel at home. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, well-maintained and very comfortable. I absolutely loved staying here and would wholeheartedly recommend it to other travellers.
I had a great time at Jac´s house. I felt really confortable. The house was very clean, in a good place of Camden and has all facilities. Jac is lovely and pays attention to every detail.
Jacqui is a wonderful host, she is very helpful and generous. The flat is very nice, in a great part of Camden. It's within walking distance to the markets and King's Cross St. Pancras and close to public transport.
Me and my daughter stayed with Jacqui for a week in July 2014 and had a wonderful time there. The apartment is spotless, everything very clean and in order, the rooms lovely and nice, and Jacqui and her family (who came for a visit while we were there) are some of the most friendly, outgoing, nice and interesting people you will ever come across. In short, I can not recommend this Homestay enough. Thank you so much, Jacqui!
I had a lovely stay with Jacqui last weekend.I was in London for my course and she gave a homely environment feeling .I enjoyed staying with Jacqui.Will recommend staying with her.xx
My girlfriend and I stayed with Jacqui and were extremely happy with everything. The home is spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The location is only a short bus journey from Camden Town tube station - public transport is brilliant there. If you don't know London then it's very convenient to the city centre. Jacqui is lovely to talk and we'd highly recommend her as a host.
