Hey I'm Jac and I own and live in a top floor maisonette in a converted Victorian property near the trendy gastro pub the Lord Stanley.
There are 13 steps leading from the street level to the main front door. The steps are quite steep and there is no hand rail. There are a further 37 steps from the ground floor to the entrance of my flat. The property is located on two floors and the small guest bedroom and guest bathroom is on the main floor. There are an additional 13 steps leading to the large guest bedroom which is located next door to my bedroom - which has a roof terrace with stunning views of north London. It is a great place for sun bathing, relaxing, and evening meals but please ask before entering my room.
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 including a microwave.
This is a female only household and the main floor 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 a friendly indoor cat called 'Kitchen' so if you are allergic, this may not be a good fit.
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.

Additional Info

There are parking bays outside the property which you will have to pay for if you wish to park your car.

    I really enjoyed my stay with Jacqui. The location is very convenient, with shops and bus stops very close by, while still being in a peaceful neighbourhood. Jacqui was very welcoming and very accommodating, creating an easy and comfortable accommodation experience.

    During the first days, everything was perfect. Jacqui welcomed me, and the room was super cozy and the bathroom super clean. On the sixth day of my stay, there was a misunderstanding. I felt humiliated and uncomfortable with the situation. In my country, it is customary and cultural for you to throw the garbage you clean in the intimate areas in the wastebasket and not on the toilet seat, as it can clog and generate other problems. However, Londoners have different customs, which is understandable as it differs entirely from Brazil. But on the sixth day, I went through an embarrassment that I found unnecessary and disrespectful. I felt treated like a teenager. Without any notice, I was called to speak with her and the cleaning lady. The subject would be where I should dispose of my tampons. I understood, but I didn't understand the reason for the scene. I said it was ok, but I wasn't on my period. However, unhappy with the answer, she made the clerk open the trash to “prove” she was right—an embarrassment I did not expect to have in such a special moment. The house, place, and neighborhood are wonderful, but I started to avoid contact because I did not accept the treatment.

    It greatly saddens me that Karoline experienced this and was unable to speak to me directly. It was never my intention that she would be humiliated.
    I had noticed a strong smell coming from the guest bathroom but did not know exactly where from until my cleaner discovered the bin and notified me of this. Of course, I called Karoline and pointed out that there were sanitary bags to dispose of intimate waste. When she said that this was not the case, this coincided with my cleaner opening the bag (which I did not and would NEVER have asked her to do. It was bad enough that she then had to dispose of this). Karoline then explained the cultural difference of disposing of toilet waste.
    Prior to this occurring, Karoline did not say anything to me about the smell in her bathroom or ask me what she should do about emptying the bin as it was very full when my cleaner emptied it.
    This is a sad outcome from which I have taken the learning.

    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.

    If Amelia contacts you asking to stay in your home, do not hesitate to accomodate her. She was a very clean and tidy guest. She can 'read the room', thus blending into my home like a chameleon. Amelia is a cultured and well seasoned traveller whose stories of adventures made me want to buy a ticket! A great guest who will be welcome in my home anytime.

    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!

    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.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
