ABOUT THE FLAT:
This sunny flat has been completely refurbished to a high specification and includes all the mod cons you would expect from a boutique hotel!
It is on the ground floor of a classic red brick mansion block on a quiet street moment off Hackney’s main street known as Mare Street.
The lounge, which overlooks the private garden, is spacious and sunny with two sofas, a couple of sidetables and a rug. The flat has cable TV and fast speed wifi throughout.
The kitchen is a proper dine-in kitchen with table and chairs for six people. There are additional chairs in the flat for larger dinner parties. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay including a built in oven, fridge freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster and kettle.
There are plenty of pot and pans, cooking utensils, glasses, crockery and cutlery for you to use. There is a restfully decorated bathroom with heated towel rail, full size bath and shower overhead.
I am more than happy to make any recommendations or offer advice for places to eat and drink!
I have also put together a little personal guide listing my top things to do, favourite places to visit and what I think are some of the best places to eat and drink....feel free to ignore and explore yourself or ask for more advice!!
I live only 20 minutes away by bike and work from home so am pretty much on hand should you need any help. I will organise cleaning the flat during longer stays on arrangement with guests and their needs.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home! Please feel free to message with any questions!

Hackney is a very vibrant, diverse and fashionable area with a thriving arts scene and amazing independents shops, restaurants & gastropubs serving fabulous food.
In good weather, there are some great green spaces to relax or picnic in including London Fields park which also has one of London's remaining outdoor heated lido swimming pools.
The flat is also a few minutes walk away to Broadway Market which is famous for its Saturday food market and antique stalls.
On Sundays, you can walk to London's famous Columbia Road Flower Market which is perfect for coffee and people watching before heading to Spitalfield's famous covered market for a spot of shopping and lunch from one of the many restaurants.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!!
Debbie was a great host, although we didn't actually meet. Answered all questions really quickly, whether by email or text. Sorted parking for us and dealt with queries quickly. The flat was as stated, easy to find from directions, although we thought from photo, lounge would be a little bigger but it was adequate; a little full when there was 8 of us for 1 night! Flat in a really easy to get to location via bus or train, the bus service was great from central London. Lovely local markets a stroll away. My only criticism would be the pots and pans could be a little nicer (we ate in a couple times) and an 8th chair for the dining table would have been good. Overall a nice flat. Thanks
This is the second time I've had the pleasure staying at Debbie's homes in London.
As always it was clean and organised, without any issues.
Amazing location, never a problem staying here.
Would strongly recommend for a small family or a group of friends.
The flat was great and just as described. Well located, everything we needed and the three bedrooms plus living room is superb.
Great communication from Debbie.
Thanks for having us!
Great apartment, had everything we needed! We stayed overnight due to the perfect location and we would definitely stay there again!
This is a nice apartment in a very good location. Very good connection to the center. In the kitchen is everything you need. We had a great time and will definitely go again.
Todo lo que puedo decir es bueno.Las condiciones del apartamento sobresalientes y el barrio nos encanto.Muy bien situado para poder desplazarte al centro.En definitiva nuestra experiencia ha sido excepcional
Great flat, great location & Debbie left lots of great tips of where to go out.

I am a property renovator and design enthusiastic who loves taking unloved homes and making them look and feel beautiful!
I live with my husband Tim in East London and in my free time I like rummaging round markets and junk shops, eating tasty food with my friends and cycling in the sunshine.
We are both huge travel addicts and recently returned from an extended trip around the world where we were lucky enough to visit some amazing places and make some great friends along the way!
Now I am looking forward to meeting more new people and letting them discover what I love about London!
