Really good I advice you Chris she is very kind and helpful person
It was really wonderful experience and Christina was really helpful and the place wa extremely quit and I suggested to book in her house
Christina is a really lovely person who tries to do her better to make you feel at easy. the house is little but clean and tidy. The area is very quiet and travelling to the centre of London is simple. There's a bus stop near the house (no W4) and two tube stations ( Turnpike Lane station, Piccadilly line, at 15 minutes on foot and Seven Sisters station, Victoria line, at 20 minutes on foot). There are also some overground stations at about 30 minutes on foot (Tottenham Hale station, connected to Stanted airport, and Bruce Grove station). Thereare also cheap and good restaurants and shops in the area.

I had a great time. Christina is very nice and the flat is clean and tidy and I think there is everything you could possibly need. I commuted daily to central London (Holborn) and that was no problem at all. It may take almost 15 minutes to the tube station, but it's a nice walk and if you don't like walking, there is a bus too. Tubes are very frequent. I highly recommend it.
very nice experience
I had a very good time at Christina's house, she is really nice: she has been very helpful with me and offered me help when he saw me in trouble! The house is really nice and clean. Very recommended.
Mi experiencia en la casa de Cristina ha sido buena. Ella te ayuda en todo. La habitación era amplia, luminosa y estaba bien. En general, la casa es modesta, tal vez necesita una reforma. Tranquilidad por la inexistencia de ruidos.
Christina was a very lovely person and I enjoyed my stay there. It's only a few minutes by foot to the next tube station and if you don't want to walk you can take the bus which stops about 100 metres away from the house. Quiet area but also close to a shopping street (Turnpike Lane Station to Wood Green Station), nice area to discover with nice parks and also close to the City centre by tube. I loved to stay there. Thank you! :o)
