Our 1 bedroom apartment is set over a boutique in the heart of Primrose Hill. It is spread over two floors and has its own (very big) roof terrace that gets the sun from mid morning until it goes down. Tastfully decorated, it's modern and fresh - the big bay windows in the main room let light in all day long and the sky lights on the top floor keep the apartment airy.
There is a second bedroom but we use it for our clothes, so think of it as extra storage. There's a sofa bed in the living room and it's quite comfortable for 4.
The bathroom is modern with a bath/shower (great water pressure) and a separate WC.
Location-wise, you couldn't do better (honestly!). We are literally a stone's throw from Primrose Hill itself, which spills across the canal into Regents Park (with a 4 mile perimeter passing London Zoo - great for runners!). People watch in this famous celeb hood from the bay windows in the living room or hang out in the village's many cute cafes and restaurants. You're a half hour walk from the West End and half an hour in the other direction from beautiful Hampstead; great for long walks, cozy pub lunches and a swim in the outdoor ponds or lido (do it!). Oh, and you're a 4 min walk (exactly) from the tube - we're on the Northern Line which runs into the middle of town in 15 mins.
We are a professional couple working in advertising. We are often abroad shooting or visiting our families who are not in the UK. We have friends in New York who we like to visit a couple of times a year and I love Paris, so always open to long weekends in either of these cities.
We will be away over Christmas & New Year, so open to swaps for then.
This Summer, we have are looking to swap for 2/3/4 weeks from 13th July. Somewhere hot would be great, near the water (beach, pool or lake will do). Open to all suggestions.
We have not done a home exchange before but can assure you we will treat your home with the utmost respect.
Thanks for visiting!
