Hi guys! Welcome to Liam and Lacey's penthouse apartment in Shoreditch!!

The flat is a corner penthouse on the top (4th) floor of a 1930's building right in the heart of Shoreditch. You are a 2 minute walk away from Shoreditch High Street and a 3 minute walk from Hoxton Square!! You cannot be better positioned!!

The light in the flat is incredible thanks to floor to ceiling windows right the way along the property including in the main reception room and the two bedrooms. The reception room (lounge / kitchen combined) has two full size sets of sliding doors that lead out onto our great roof terrace. This is our favourite space as it houses our gas BBQ and plays host to our many evening gatherings to eat, drink and be merry as the sun sets! From the terrace you can see over East London's glorious skyline and feel the buzz from being right in the centre of everything cool and hip.

The lounge has a large corner sofa and a vintage reclining chair. There is a 46" HD TV, which come with Apple TV so you can connect your iPad/iPhone/iPod or connect to our computer to watch a vast array of movies or listen to music. We also have Netflix.

There is a dining table which comfortably seats 6 but you can sit more if needed (we have spare fold up tables and chairs) and its a great environment for a dinner party as even the chef is involved in proceedings due to the open layout of the flat! (chef not supplied!!!!)

The kitchen is fully stocked and loaded and pretty much anything you would need is here. There are 2 fridges, one for alcohol and one for food, a freezer, oven, 4 gas hobs, microwave, toaster, slow cooker, kettle and blender in case you fancy a smoothy!! You also have all of the crockery, cutlery, glasses etc that you could need. There are all the condiments and basics you would expect such as oils, sauces, herbs, spices etc. There is also a washing machine in case you don't pack enough clothes! We will provide washing liquid and conditioner for your use. There will also be fresh milk in the fridge. Basically, as far as we are concerned, anything that is in the flat you are welcome to use :)

The bathroom consists of toilet, sink and bath with shower. There is a shelving unit for you to store your toiletries. We will provide some toiletries (shampoo and shower gel) and towels.

There are 2 proper double bedrooms. Both bedrooms come with full floor to ceiling windows.

Bedroom Number 1 comes with king size bed, library wall with comfy chair to relax and read in, enormous mirror, hooks on the wall to hang your clothes and LOADS of space!!!

Bedroom Number 2 comes with a double bed, desk with computer that you are welcome to use, vintage dressing table, another massive mirror (on the front of wardrobe), more gorgeous hooks for hanging your clothes and loads more space!!!

Please note, there is not a lot of spare storage, but there will be space for you to unpack and hang your things.

The apartment comfortably sleeps 4 adults in the 2 bedrooms. But there is also the option for another 2 adults to sleep in the lounge on a blow up mattress. However, due to the vast amount of space, there is also room for extra little ones if you should be a family looking for somewhere suitable to stay.

The flat is lovely and warm due to full gas central heating and super high speed wifi is also included. The flat is on the 4th floor and there is NO LIFT, so if you have problems walking or climbing stairs this is not for you. If however, you wish to tone your calves whilst on holiday this is perfect!!

In terms of the local area, there is nothing you need that you can't find within 5 minutes walk of the flat. There are 2 major underground stations (Liverpool Street and Old Street) as well as Shoreditch High Street station which serves the East London Line. There are also buses that will take you to every corner of London. You really couldn't be more central. There are fantastic shops, bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants, markets, galleries, you name it, it's here. At our front door are the fantastic, eclectic mix of boutique stores and Shoreditch High Street which is a great place to relax and wander during the day or party and dance during the night. Spitalfields market, Columbia Road and Brick Lane are also a short (5-10 minute) walk away.

The last thing that I should point out is that this is our home that Lacey and I are offering to you. We love it and really want you to love it too. But because it's out home it contains our personal possessions too. I think that's important to point out in case you wonder why there are suits and dresses in the wardrobe when you arrive!

Lacey and I spend most of our time in and around the area so are more than happy to help with suggestions of anything that may take your fancy.

Finally, before you book, please email us your requested dates and a little bit about yourselves. The flat is not always available as it's dependent on our travel schedules, but if you ask nicely we may be able to accommodate you :)

Anything else that we may have forgotten please just ask. And hopefully you will get to come and enjoy all of the delights of East London very soon!!!

  • Liam is a fantastic host - can't recommend him high enough. Friendly, generous, and very easy to get hold of. The flat was immaculate, beautifully decorated & in the best location for Shoreditch. My 2 girlfriends & I had a great weekend, and a big part of that was hanging out in Liam's place and feeling so relaxed and at home. Thanks so much L!

  • Liam and Lacey's apartment is absolutely gorgeous. Liam met us at the apartment and showed us how everything worked, he was very friendly and made us feel at ease straight away. It was perfectly positioned for us as a small group of friends and we were even left a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge along with loads of lovely breads, muffins, eggs and juice. It's a quirky and very comfortable apartment with ample hanging space for all of our dresses! We were lucky with a beautiful sunny weekend so we could enjoy the outside terrace. If we were visiting the area again all of us would rebook 'The Original Shoreditch Penthouse!!' Thanks Liam and Lacey :)

  • I can't give high enough praise for this place and for our hosts. The flat is beautiful, it has everything you could possibly want (fast wifi, good shower, decent hair drier) and the location is great. The beds are so comfy and the flat was deliciously warm! The only things to note, and they are certainly not criticisms, are the stairs - if you have any mobility issues this is not for you - and that the windows don't keep out the noise of the street so if you're a light sleeper bring ear plugs and maybe an eye mask too as there are blinds rather than curtains. Or do as we did and enjoy everything London has to offer until you're so exhausted you could sleep through anything!! Don't debate about where to stay - you want it to be here :) Thanks Liam and Lacey!

  • My stay was wonderful. The apartment is very clean and nice.

  • I stayed with my partner, baby and mum. We really enjoyed staying in the flat. It's a great flat to stay in if you are a family or if are in London going out and partying. As a family, the flat has 2 decent sized bedrooms (which fit a cotbed comfortably), decent size lounge and kitchen and a washing machine. There are also lots of small supermarkets close by so it was very convenient to pick stuff up each day. As there are plenty of restaurants in the area, we could get our friends to come to old st rather than travel far each time. We were also close enough to the west end which was good. My partner and I are lawyers and we found the fact that there was a PC in the flat to be a big bonus (as remote access to the office via our laptops is slow). Liam was at all times very responsive and flexible. He kindly hung around at home to take delivery of some baby stuff that we hired and stayed at home when they were collected. We would definitely consider staying again.

  • Liam is a brilliant host and we had a splendid weekend in his flat.

    The penthouse is ace with a lovely view from the terrace over an area with good restaurants, clubs, shops and market all within a 10 min. walking distance.

    Would definitely recommend for anyone spending a great time in London.

  • Hi

    We just got back from our trip to London. Our first experience with Airbnb was wonderful. In the beginning I was a bit apprehensive, but everything went so smoothly.
    I love this way of travelling! Liam and Lacey's place is really wonderful. Very cosy and clean. I would recommend it to everybody.

    Thank you Liam & Lacey! We had such a nice time!

  • We stayed in Liam and Lacey's place in late October and had a wonderful stay. Liam was very friendly, responsive and easy to deal with and met us on arrival to talk through the flat. He left us with fresh food and a well stocked fridge and generously told us that we were welcome to treat the place like it was our home. Liam and Lacey have a fun aesthetic and the place looked great. The area was fun to explore and the flat is convenient to Old St underground station. As with any place in a busy area, there was some street noise, but we would definitely recommend this place.
