Fantastic location in a hip and culturally diverse area of London. In the immediate area is Roman road market and Victoria park. Take the no 8 bus towards Hoxton and the lively local street markets of Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Pettycoat Lane. Much loved by artists and city financiers alike the area offers vibrant restaurants, music venues, bars and night life as well as renowned galleries and museums - the Cube and Geffrye Museum being perhaps best known.
Alternatively take a leisurely stroll through the City to St Pauls, over the Millennium Bridge to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and have some lunch at The Tate Modern. Or head West and wonder around antique Bloomsbury, explore the wonderful treasures of the British Museum and pop in at one of the four Inns of Court to get a feel for medieval London. If you are feeling energetic there are many cycle paths along the canals which are great for poodling around on a lazy Sunday with a pit stop at the local pub.
Got to do some work? The apartment is just 20 minutes away from the financial district and Liverpool Street. There are excellent train connections plus 24hr bus links for easy access to Central London.
Your choices are endless as the area truly has something for everyone.
The area is multi-coloured - like the house! With a rich mix of culture, from the East-enders, English, Carribeans, Turkish, Greeks, Indians, Pakistani, Bengali, French, Spanish, Brazilian, Polish...the list goes on.....
Local shops - 30 seconds away! For a bigger shop I prefer to order on-line and have groceries delivered.
Neighbours - Make-up artists, Fashion designers, Graphic designers. Quiet

Interaction with Guests
I travel frequently so I have a housekeeper that takes care of the house. I'm always available on email or skype .
I've lived in the East End on and off for 20 years. I love the bargains you find in the Roman Road market, the friendly Eastenders, and the space and nature of Victoria Park and Regents Canal.
No 8 bus, straight through Shoreditch and the City to Oxford Street...or Mile End Tube. Very easy...my main preference is cycling on the 'Boris bikes'
Other Things to Note
2 days minimum booking just to fill up the gaps I have on the calendar.
Please respect my neighbours, no late parties.
Please no spray on orange tans as in the past it stains all my bed linen!!
The wood surface in the kitchen no candles or hot things directly onto the wood (can damage easily) -
I spent thousands installing the pebbled Balinese floors, please appreciate the reflexology and 'touching the earth' - please take off your shoes on the middle and top floor. You'll appreciate the space more as it will not have the energy of the streets of London in your sleeping areas. Internet code: 2d593782cd
