Lovely, lively area the house is situated on a quiet road with a park at the end of it. Loads of shops and restaurants nearby and finsbury park station within a five minute walk.

Im a mother of a young 3 year old boy and sometimes life can be quite messy for us! Hahaha butttt if you don't mind staying with a little quiet family and are just looking for a home (not a hotel) to stay in then we are for you!

House Rules

Hello! Welcome to my profile :) I've been doing this for over a year and there's a few things that's happened because I haven't set the rules out. Firstly please clean up after yourself, dishes or mess in the bathroom. Guys! Please put the seat back down when you used the toilet and wipe the seat. Ladies please dispose of your sanitry towels/tampons outside in the bins. Please also take bedding off the bed as it helps me for the next arrival :)

Smoking is allowed indoors and outdoors.

    Perfect in every aspect! It looks exactly like it does on the pictures. The location is great, very easy to get around with public transportation and walking distance to lots of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. The wifi is the fastest I have ever used and Shaleskia is extremely polite. Totally recommend it!

    Leider war das Badezimmer recht dreckig und man konnte die Tür nicht abschließen, ebenso wie das Schlafzimmer, das mir zudem mehr wie ein Durchgangszimmer vorkam, weil durch diesen Raum Möbel von der Gastfamilie nach draußen in den Garten getragen wurden. Außerdem konnte man auch hierdie Tür nicht verschließen, weil es keinen Schlüssel zur Tür gab und der Teppich im Raum zu hoch dafür ist. Die Eingangstür steht auch immer auf, solange die Familie zu Hause ist, da aber die ganze Zeit der Fernseher sehr laut läuft, kriegen diese nicht einmal mit ob man unterwegs oder im Haus ist...
    Auch wenn man die Küche benutzen möchte, muss man erst mal das Geschirr der Gastfamilie spülen, da es nicht genügend davon gibt und diese das Geschirr erstmal in die Spüle stellen, um es dann später zu spülen.

    Im sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The room is the only exit to the garden so it has to be used when needed. You can close the bathroom door and lock it, as for the bedroom door im rectifying the problem. Apologies for all other problems you found with the house.

    First time in London and it was great. Shaleksia and his son are very nice people. The house is in zone 2 near the underground and from there you can go to any part of London you want. The price was affordable and I would stay there again

    I booked this is for my daughter I have asked her for feedback 3 times I know she is under a great deal of stress so haven't received reply yet.
    However knowing my daughter I would imagine if anything had been not to her liking she would have told me straightaway. So on that basis I would say she must have been content and happy . I know from my experience in contacting Shaleskia she was very very helpful and responded very quickly. My daughter saw the description of property , area and photo etc and area was a plus for her uni and both of us myself and daughter were happy before I booked it..

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. 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.
