About this listing
Welcome to my home!
I am currently renting my lovely Victorian first floor apartment which has a sunny south facing garden. It has two double bedrooms and a bright and spacious loft room (accessed via a ladder from the master bedroom) which contains a double bed and has space for an additional double air mattress if required. The apartment therefore comfortably sleeps 6 and can accomodate up to 8... If you're not good with heights, there's also the option to have the air mattress in the lounge (instead of the loft) if you prefer.
There is also a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, plenty of hot water in the bathroom and of course the lovely garden. As well as free wifi, fresh linen and towels and endless tea and coffee.
Hopefully the photos will help you get a feel for the place.....all the rooms contain many of the original features, including victorian fireplaces and sash windows in each room.
The apartment is peacefully located just a 10 mins walk from the nearest tube station (Leyton on the central line), but only a stones throw from the heart of London and one stop from the Olympic Park and the brand new Westfield Stratford City, which has lots of shops, restaurants, and entertainment (multi-screen cinema, bowling, etc.). The apartment itself however is situated in a quiet residential street, with a small local parade of shops just opposite.
Main shops, shops, ATM, restaurants, pubs all within a 10 minute walk - having recently moved in myself, I'm in the process of exploring the local area so can recommend some great local shops, eateries and bars!
Fresh bed linen including towels
Oven and hob
Shower and Bath
Tea and coffee facilities
This apartment is my home, rather than a serviced apartment so it has a relaxed look and feel. Do let me know if you have any questions about the apartment, or about London in general - happy to help out in any way I can!
I try to welcome all my guests in person, but if this isn't possible, I have a keysafe which allows more flexibility for guests as they can let themselves in straightaway when they arrive and make themselves at home :)
Recycle where possible!
Strictly non-smoking inside
Please leave the apartment as you find it and clean as you go along :)
Please be respectful of the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum when coming and going and after 22:00 - many thanks!
From the moment we made contact it has been like speaking with a dear friend. Nikki has been so accommodating despite various unexpected changes to our plans. Her house is utterly gorgeous, all our needs were attended and we have had a glorious three days seeing friends in London. We were lucky enough to get to spend some time with Nikki, despite letting the entire flat and look forward very much to an opportunity where we might stay with Nikki around to hang out with!
As our first ever experience of Air bnb we have truly been spoilt. The bar has been set very high indeed! What a brilliant way to combine visits to new places and make a new friend all at once.
Five of us stayed and there was ample space for all. Amenities are close by, as is the overground and tube.
The Red Lion pub does an amazing roast on a Sunday, highly recommended!
We had a truly lovely time Nikki, thankyou so much for sharing your beautiful, cosy home (despite the cold November outside!) and your company with us. Planning our return at the earliest opportunity!
Thankyou heartily from us all xxx
Nikki´s apartment is very cozy and it was almost a shame to leave it for trips around the town :). Neighborhood was relatively quiet, we had absolutely no problem with the residents and the apartment was located within a reasonable distance from grocery stores, fast foods/restaurants, subway line and from bus stops.
It was a pleasure to communicate with Nikki, even prior our visit, she replied very quickly and she willingly answered all of our questions. Later I found out that everything was also described in detail in the instructions.
What is maybe important to say about apartment is that one of the bedrooms is accessed by a ladder and goes through another bedroom :). However this was not problem for us at all.
We recommend this place to stay, it is much nicer, more personal and more inspiring way of accommodation than in the hotel. In addition, Nikki is a great host, she communicates well, and the apartment is clean, nice and comforting to return after a busy day.
We had super holiday and we felt very welcomed :).
Nikki have been friendly from day 1 even before we even booked her place. She help plan my trip and check to find our needs before we even arrive.
She help prepared all the rooms and have them ready before we arrive.
The place was clean and cozy. it have a very nice garden but unfortunately we do not have the time to enjoy it. It is actually like a town house. An upper and lower residence and Nikki apartment is on the upper floor of the 2 floor "house".
It is ideal for a family of 4 persons, however it have enought bedding for up to 6 persons. It is near to 2 main supermarket and you could get almost everything you ever need from them.
The neighbourhood looks Ok and safe.
Unfortunately we are unable to meet Nikki but she left enough instruction to check us in and out. She also left some home made jams which we liked very much.
All in all, it was good. nice beds, airy and plenty of hot water. No issue and problem.
We will certainly come back.
Nous voilà ravis de notre séjour à Londres. La maison est charmante et cosy, la décoration réalisée avec goût et surtout très bien située , à peine à quelques stations de métro de St Paul !
Une bien jolie adresse!
Merci Nikki !
We had a wonderful time in London and at the Victorian garden flat. It is a nice place and you feel home at once. A little small for 8 people but 6 people can fit in the flat, I would say. Nikki is a nice host and she will do anything to help you during your trip.
Try it ... you won´t regret!
Nice and clean apartment. Nikki was very nice and helpful. We have a bit of problem with the main door lock but Nikki got it resolved very quickly for us. Will come back for my next visit to London.
Nikkis home is such a wonderful place to stay while visiting London. We felt so welcome and enjoyed staying in this lovely decorated flat. Charming and cozy! Such a shame it was winter when we visited, because there is a small romantic garden behind the house where you can sit, listen to the birds and watch squirrels jump about in the trees... Nikki was super helpful and very quick to respond to our messages. We would come back and stay here again anytime!
