    Response from Luke & Mischa:

    We already had a private room booking which coincided with this booking for the whole flat. Helene was made aware of this within 5 minutes of making her booking and was immediately fully refunded. This will not happen again! :)

  • We had a great week at Luke and Mischa's flat in Shoreditch. It's in a fantastic location right next to Brick Lane which was lots of fun and never dull. There are an abundance of cafés, restaurants, quirky shops and pubs (we whiled away several evenings at "The Owl and Pussycat" - super friendly staff and great spot to relax) within a five-minute walk. It is also within easy reach of Liverpool St and Bethnal Green stations as well as the bus, which made it incredibly easy to get to all the spots we wanted to explore all over London. The flat is lovely and relaxed and had a really nice vibe. There was heaps of room for all of us (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and we enjoyed every moment of our stay! It was a great place to come home to after long days exploring London. Luke kept in touch in the lead up to our stay and, despite being overseas himself, made everything really easy. We would unequivocally recommend Luke and Mischa's unit to anyone thinking of spending time in London - it was fantastic!

  • Luke and Mischa have a lovely flat in a convenient and safe area of East London. The flat itself is tastefully decorated and the 3 of us especially appreciated the kitchen and dining area which was spacious and charming. There are 2 TVs and a washing machine and dryer which are a luxury when travelling. Although we didn't get to meet Mischa, Luke was helpful and available to answer all our questions.
    Shoreditch itself is a very happening place especially on weekends and makes a good base from which to explore London from. It is very close to Shoreditch Overground Station, Columbia Rd Flower Market and Brick Lane (markets and delicious bagel stores!). The kitchen is well stocked with spices and utensils to make cooking at home a dream. The 3 of us really enjoyed our stay here and will certainly miss the flat!
    Thanks Luke and Mischa!

  • We had a bit of a mixed stay at Luke & Mischa's by no fault of their own. First of all, the place is immaculate but not sterile. It was tastefully and lovingly decorated, obviously by people who love life and are conscientious. We were four adults visiting London for the first time. There are two bathrooms, one has a bathtub (which we didn't use). The other had a shower, which was small by American standards, but functional. The beds were comfortable and warm. There was a plumbing issue in the kitchen during our stay, which was resolved immediately.

    The apartment was a 10-15 minute walk from the Old Street tube station, which was probably too far for us in hindsight because we were only there a few days and it was far from the touristy stuff we were obliged to see for our first visit. But the area was very cool, very urban and trendy. We walked a few blocks just looking at the fantastic graffiti, including a Banksy! Just really great energy. We'd love to come back again and really explore Shoreditch, and when we do, it is likely we will be staying with Luke & Mischa. Thanks for the experience!

  • Nice apartment in a very cool area of London. Luke was very helpful and friendly. Everything you need is in apartment which feels very comfortable. Good beds and fairly quiet .

    January 2013
  • Nice flat, great location close to a lot of nice bars and places to eat. Brick lane is really cool and only about 30 seconds walk from the front door. Didn't meet Mischa in person, but we chatted via email and she was very helpful.

About
Hi, I'm Mischa, 29, and I live my boyfriend Luke, also 29. I studied History of Art at Edinburgh University and I currently work in marketing for Virgin Galactic. I am also studying naturopathy, nutrition and about to start my yoga teacher training. Luke is a Londoner born and bred. He studied Philosophy at Bristol and now divides his time working on various web projects. We generally have busy lives but always find time to relax and enjoy London and when we can travel abroad to experience new places. We love living in our area as it always has something new, fun and interesting going on. We love eating out and never tire of the weekend markets. We hope that you can feel totally relaxed and at home during your stay and we look forward to welcoming you as our guest. Luke & Mischa [Mischa will be abroad furthering her yoga training from September to November 2013.]
