The Space

Our quiet and airy flat is on a friendly tree-lined street in Walthamstow, East London. It's a ten minute walk from Walthamstow Market -- the longest daily outdoor market in Europe. There's a nearby overground train that takes 15 minutes to go to Liverpool Street Station, and underground stations (Victoria Line and Central Line) are a short bus ride away. The Olympic Park is also a very short bus ride away.

The front room is filled with light in the morning -- it's on the top floor of a small building with only two flats in it -- and it's very comfortably furnished and spacious. You can have breakfast on tiled dining table, curl up on the sofa with a book, or chill out after a long day on the cushy chairs.

The back bedroom (email hidden) and has a big double bed with a feather duvet. There's also a cozy, book-lined study with a pull out sofa bed.

The kitchen is small and basic, but pretty charming too, with an old-fashioned ceramic sink. We've put a mosaic-tiled shower into the Victorian bathroom.

If you want some place to come back to where you can take a break at the end of the day, this would be a very good place to stay. It's perfect for someone travelling on their own, or for a couple, or for a family travelling with children.

Walthamstow is a safe, friendly neighbourhood in London's ZONE 3. It is not near Central London. It's very close to the Olympic Park and East London and there are many shops and restaurants nearby. It will take you about 45 minutes to get to Central London by bus and Underground (15 minutes by bus to Walthamstow Central, 30 minutes by Victoria Line to Oxford Circus). There is free on street parking nearby.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Linda was very helpful answering millions of questions. Unfortunaltely she was not in London during our vacation, but we stayed in contact during our days in London. From the outside the house looks a bit old, but who wants to live outside the house. Inside the house steep stairs directed us to a very nice flat with many wooden furniture. The flat is really nice and cozy. So many beautiful details.
    The nights were quiet and we had a good sleep every night. There are many shops on the main street nearby the house. We detected the bakery the day we left London.
    Internet worked fine and even our daughter didn't miss the TV.
    It was a very nice stay in London without any problems.

  • Linda was amazing! She was quick to reply, so very helpful and friendly when I had questions and gave us all the info on the flat and area we could ever need. The flat is so lovely, homely and relaxing and its is bigger than it looks in the pictures. I can't praise Linda and the flat highly enough. We had a wonderful stay! Thank you Linda!

  • Stayed her for a week whilst moving flats ourselves. The flat was clean and comfortable and the front room was lovely and sunny. Linda was very accommodating and let us drop our bags off the night before. Would recommend this place.

  • Thanks to Linda for the very comfotable accomodation. We were all very glad to stay there. And Linda was very patient in the beginning with my then uncomplete profile.
    The flat is really nice and suitable even for a family of five like ours. It is situated in a residential area which is quiet at night, so you can get some relief after long days in the city.
    Everything was fine and I really can recommend this flat to you!

  • Great place, spacious, sunny, well equipped house to stay in. We liked our stay in Linda's apartment and would recommend. 20 minutes by bus to stratford (from wich you take the metro to the center) or 5 minutes from walthamstow. It'll take a while before you get in the center of london (30-45 minutes) but you (email hidden) and relaxed area in return. A small shop is just outside, a few internet cafe's nearby, and wifi in the apt. My gf felt the toilet window needed a curtain, but a towel fixed that easily. We had a great time in london!

  • Beautiful flat! Great host. The area was a bit away from central London but didn't take too long to travel in on the bus and tube. Great stay!

  • I really enjoyed staying at Linda's, away from the mad rush of the city center. It did take a little walking and tubing to get to central London, but it was worth it to be able to retire to a quiet cozy place at the end of the day. It was my first airbnb trip and Linda was a communicative, helpful and gracious host.

  • Linda's flat was absolutely perfect for us! It's spacious, inviting, and offereed everything we needed. The neighborhood is very charming and diverse. The streets were alive with markets on the weekend and it was a quick walk to just about anything we needed. In fact, we all enjoyed aimlessly walking in different directions to see what we would find. And it was a quick ride into Central London.

    May 2012
  • My partner and I were looking for a place to stay to explore a local area Linda's lovely Victorian east London flat couldn't have been more perfect. Its located in a good transport position with buses and trains close at hand to get to any London hot spot but quiet enough to enjoy some respite from the world. Linda, although was away on travels, was a gracious and communicative host giving us all the info we needed to make our stay silky smooth. Perfect! Thanks Linda!

I'm a writer who travels a lot. This flat is my home base and I've decided to start letting it out when I'm away. I've stayed in so many other people's houses when I've been traveling that I like the idea of someone staying in my place while they're visiting London. There are books everywhere in my flat, and for a place in London it gets quite a lot of light. Maybe you'll like sitting in a splash of sun in the front room, reading while the sounds of the city move on by. I grew up in New York, and my neighbourhood reminds me of Brooklyn in the 1990s -- kids playing on the street and a dozen languages being spoken in the markets. It'(email hidden) to hide out when you want to come home from the touristy bits of London.
