Welcome to our bright and airy London apartment, located on the buzzing Belsize Park high street with the conveniences of the tube, cafes, bakery, restaurants, cinema, local supermarkets right on your doorstep. We hope our home provides you with a comfortable and convenient base for exploring the joyful diversity of London!
Our bright, airy, comfortable home is located on the second floor of a terrace building overlooking Belsize Park high street (please note there is no lift). As such, you will hear plenty life going on outside our apartment, and from time to time ambulances heading to/from the local hospital. However the elevation provides a lovely cross breeze on a warm Summer's day, and even in more typical British weather natural daylight floods the windows on three sides of our property!
The bedroom is located at the back of the house away from the high street and is quite large by London standards. It features a very comfortable UK size super king bed (Australian/Canadian King) and feather pillows. Please be aware that our bed doesn't sit on a frame as we take a Montessori approach to floor beds for our young son.
Stepping past the entry way you will find the bathroom with basin, toilet and shower over the bath tub.
Our long narrow kitchen includes a toaster, kettle, electric oven, gas hotplates and nutribullet, but please note that we don't own a microwave. The combined washer/drier is also located in the kitchen.
Further on is the study which remains locked (we can provide you with additional linen when requested ahead of time).
Finally you reach the lounge room, featuring two large comfy sofas and a 58" TV with Sky Q subscription (including 4k and all sports inc. football). The largest sofa can be used as a comfortable bed for one, and we also have a single bed/frame which can be set up in either the lounge or bedroom.
Having a toddler ourselves, our home is very kid friendly (by London standards). We have a safety gate on the kitchen and child locks on the key cupboards throughout the house, though the power points are not covered. We can also provide a highchair and travel cot/sheets on prior request. Your pushchair/buggy can be left downstairs just inside the front door during the daytime (providing it doesn't block the door) but is best carried up at night to avoid inconveniencing our neighbours.
Our whole apartment will be available to your exclusive use, except the study which is locked.

Hi, we are Aussies living in London since 2008. We love to travel and experience different cultures and places. Recently our pace of travel slowed down but our pace of life picked up with the arrival of our young son! We love beaches, time outdoors, sunny days in parks, sailing and quality coffee.
