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!!!
The whole apartment and terrace. Treat our home like your own and make the most of it :)
Interaction with Guests
We interact as much or as little as our guests want! We live, work and spend our time in Shoreditch so anything you need, you've got it!
Its so vibrant and fun, you have to be interested in Urban living as Shoreditch and Hackney is nothing if not urban, but around every corner there is another treat whether street art, cafe, restaurant, shop, gallery or bar....
3 stations within 5 minutes walk and more buses than you could every use!! You cannot be better connected!!
Other Things to Note

Liam's flat is lovely, bright and perfectly located. Had a brilliant time there.
Personally, this was my second stay in London and by far the best! Liam is an incredibly welcoming and helpful host. The six of us greatly enjoyed our stay at his place, which started with a funny encounter with friends of his that helped cleaning the apartment (because i was the first to arrive and that happened way too early..). The exceptionally well equipped attic apartment is as advertised: clean, relatively quiet and very, very comfy. It truly felt like a second home to the six of us and even presented us with the opportunity to grab a beer in the lively neighbourhood after returning to our home base towards the end of a busy sightseeing day. All of us look foward to revisit Liam's place down the road...! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I've booked Liam's apartment for two colleagues of mine arriving to London for two weeks on a business trip. The location was great getting to the office and getting around London sightseeing. They have enjoyed their time in the apartment and found it comfortable and clean. The communication was prompt, frequent and on point.
Will definitely book again if the need arises.
Wow... Liam was brilliant. Flexible when we had to push back our check-in at last minute. Left us milk in the fridge and lots of lovely bread, muffins and cookies. Blown away by his hospitality!
We will definitely be returning sometime soon... The flat was stunning, amazing decor, comfy beds and an easy blow up bed, all amenities covered eg. Hair Dryer, Towels, TV, some booze & bubbly too ;-)
Brilliant location - a stones throw from Shoreditch and Brick Lane with plenty of bars and restaurants within reach.
Couldn't recommend more!!!! Thank you Liam :-) Love the team @ Diadora xx
It was a very pleasant stay at the apartment ! I will be sure to return . Liam was an extensional host . Thanks again .
Was a perfect experience, from the first contact until the check-out. You get a guide of surrpunding area in advance, there is a lot of space (we were a group of 5) and there were even fresh flowers! I absolutely recommend to stay at this magnificent place.
This was my first time utilizing Airbnb and my first trip to London. Boy did I luck out with such an amazing place to stay and an equally amazing host. I flew in later than expected but Liam was very flexible with when to check me in. He personally went through everything about the flat with me and was available to reach out to during my stay if I had any questions. I was in town for an interview and he left an encouraging note on the chalkboard in the hall for me :) Overall my stay was above and beyond expectations.

About the Host, Liam
Hey, I'm Liam and my girlfriend is Lacey. We absolutely LOVE airbnb, have been hosting for about 18 months and travelling and staying in some other host's great apartments for a few years now.
We have made great friends, learnt loads, had great experiences and picked up great ideas that we have added into our own home.
We try and make our home a wonderful place for people to enjoy East London and all that it has to offer.
We hope to meet you soon :)
