Private king-bed room with PRIVATE EN SUITE BATHROOM in for up to 2 people in a large, beautiful, modern, canal side 4 bedroom house by Bethnal Green & Victoria Park, Hackney, E3; very well connected to the City and the West End. Relaxed living with plenty of space, and not feeling cramped as you can do in a flat share, the house offers a large kitchen/diner, living room and outside space facing onto the canal to have a coffee and watch the world go by.
If this room is booked for your desired dates check out our other listing for a Double en Suite with great shower!
Make the most of your stay in London by renting our bright and airy king-sized bedroom, with a compact en suite bathroom with a full sized shower, toilet and compact sink (see photos to see layout). The bedroom is large, has a very comfortable king sized bed and plenty of wardrobe space.
We provide fresh towels, linen and flowers in the room, and a ladies bathrobe. If you are staying for a week or more these will be changed and the room cleaned weekly.
Please note: We do have a little 2 year boy! He is lovely and is generally quiet, and sleeps through the night, but he is a toddler and so can have his moments. Our bedrooms are on the next floor up so you generally won't be able to hear him, and many guests really enjoy having him around as he is lovely and great fun with guests, but we like to make it very clear he is here before you book :)
In the kitchen/diner you'll find tea, coffee and milk for hot drinks and there's space in the fridge for you to store juice or food. You are welcome to use all of the house amenities, kitchen/diner and lounge and outside spaces by the canal and balcony - we want you to have a relaxed, enjoyable stay as if you were home.
The house has WIFI, Satellite TV with pay movies in the main living room, LCD TV, underfloor heating in key rooms, and a sunny balcony looking out over the canal.
Interaction with Guests
We love London and are always happy to help guests make the most of their stay. There's always a copy of TimeOut London on the kitchen table and we can help guests organise what to do, where to go and how to get there if need be. Check out our reviews for previous guests' feedback!
We've had guests stay for dinner parties, join us down the pub and hook up for breakfast - it's not mandatory but we're always happy to hang out and chat.
The house is on the Hertford Union Canal and is peaceful and quiet. Victoria Park, one of the biggest in London, is right across the road.
The area is fabulous; we're a 5 minute walk across the park from Victoria Park Village and a wide range of independent shops, bars, restaurants and pubs. Trendy London Fields & Broadway Market are 15 minutes walk away along the canal, and we're only a short distance from Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston and Hackney if you'd like to immerse yourself in some of the coolest, most creative areas of London.
3 nearby underground lines get you all over London in minimal time:
- Central Line from Bethnal Green (0.8 mile, 12 mins walk) - 1 stop to Liverpool Street (City/Shoreditch), 6 stops to the West End/Soho
- District, Central and Hammersmith & City lines from Mile End (0.7 mile, 10 mins walk or 5 minute bus)
- 30 minutes walk to Shoreditch or Brick Lane
- Multiple local bus routes including 24 hour routes
- 'Boris bike' local hiring hub is 100m away
We are right on the inside edge of zone 2 so transport is cheap, quick and very efficient!
Other Things to Note
Laundry can be done at a fixed rate of £6 per wash (ironing not included!). We will be staying in the house throughout the rental period and can provide information on local amenities, transport, restaurants and more.
Please note there is a 1.5 year old baby in the house - he is generally quiet and usually sleeps all night; no guests have had any issues so far :) Our accommodation is on a separate floor and we do not expect him to cause any disruption to our guests and you certainly won't disturb him.
Thanks for looking, and we hope to welcome you to our home soon.
No smoking inside please, no outside shoes anywhere except the kitchen/dining area. I think that's about it - we are generally relaxed and want to ensure our guests have a good time here. We will trust that you will respect our property and likewise we respect you and work very hard to make sure that you have a great time here!
When you check out we will clean the room spotlessly for the next guests however it is greatly appreciated if you can bear in mind this is a house and not a hotel :) Most people are considerate and rinse down the shower and clean up any mess in the bathroom so that I can then clean it effectively, and that's always very much appreciated!
Nicola and Michael were absolutely fantastic. They were so accommodating and so kind. They were incredibly helpful. The house is gorgeous and the neighbourhood is lovely. We felt like home and we were free to move around the house and use the kitchen. Coming back to such a comfortable room and atmosphere made the week even greater!
There is also a great vegan restaurant just down the road from the house that sells great breakfasts.
I missed the window to leave a public response as I was travelling (sorry, Michelle!) so wanted to leave a review here that she is a brilliant guest - great fun, lovely company, perfect communication - what more could a host ask for :) We would welcome her back any time and wish her all the very best for the future.
I can just highly recommend this place!! It was such a good choice being there in Nicola's house. All the time we spent there was full of comfort and ease. House is modern and well equipped. Our room, the bed the shower ,opening from the room, makes your stay really comfortable. Her family is so friendly and kind with a very very cute toddler :). They gave us all the information we needed. Neighborhood is very still as well with one of the beautiest park (including a high class place for having breakfast) in London next to the house. It takes really no time getting there. On top of it bus stations and undergound transport are very close. If you want to exchange silence with fun and entertainment, the very centre of the city is in 30minutes in the worst case.
I stayed over a week at nicolas house in london. I went with my mom and my toddler which was very nice since she has a toddler too and they could play together, sooo cute s2 nicolas and michaels place is above expectations, everything is very well organized, clean, spacious and very very confortable. I would definitely stay there again and I will when i go back. Also the area is pretty nice as there is a park, many restaurants and easy transport connections. Nicola and Michael are definitely super hosts, you will love tour stay there s2
After one year i returned to my welcoming oasis between Victoria park and the canal.
I felt home again immediately. Nicola and Michael have been as hospitable and charming as before. Little Connor (a bit taller now) is a great fellow. I will be back soon.
Thanks again for a perfect stay and Merry X-Mas to all of you.
We stayed 3 nights in Nicola's home early December and would highly recommend to anyone visiting London. The house is in a beautiful, peaceful area but still close to central London. The room was just as described, clean and the bed was very comfy. Nicola and her family were great: making sure that we had everything we needed, had lots of suggestions for things to do. I really hope to be back one day
My boyfriend and I just got back from a fantastic long weekend in London which we enjoyed very much, and our choosing to stay with Nicola and Michael played a great part in that. They were so friendly from the first email on. They couldn’t help us enough, making sure we knew how to get there, what to do and even helped us plan a day to day itinerary, to make sure we made the most out of our stay. They are lovely people and baby Connor is the cutest! Being experienced Airbnb hosts, we found them to have a great balance between professional and genuine friendliness. We had a very early morning flight and had some trouble figuring out how to get to Gatwick at that hour, but Nicola checked out all opportunities for us, booked us the cheapest mean of transportation and offered to get us our deposits from our oystercards back and paypal it to us since we’d leave before office hours.
The description and pictures are very accurate. The en suite room is nice, clean, spacey with a very big, comfy bed. The bathroom is nice and clean too.
Staying here is great for exploring London in general, but great for exploring East London especially! This is the part of London where we found all the great markets to be, such as the Brick Lane, Spitalfields, Colombia Flower Market and Broadway Market, as well as the neighbourhood Shoreditch, which is packed with cafes, restaurants, bars and life every day of the week. The house is just on the opposite side of the street from lovely Victoria Park, which has the best place for breakfast and on the other side of the park is a lovely street with restaurants and shops. It is far enough from the city centre to be calm, authentic and charming, but the tube station is a 12-15 minutes walk away and it gets you on the central line which takes you to Tottenham Court Road and Oxford circus, so it is easy to get practically anywhere.
We are so very thankful for the friendliness we were met with and all the help we received during our stay, it really wouldn’t have been the same without it!
This was our second stay with Nicola & Michael! We started and ended our European trip in London, and it was a great way to finish our travels! We love the location, and Nicola, Michael and family are really friendly with lots of suggestions for things to do in London. We had plenty of space and privacy. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting London, and we hope to be back one day! Thank you again!

Hi! We are Nicola and Michael and are lucky enough to live in a beautiful 4 bedroom house on the canal, right by Victoria Park in Hackney.
We love London (especially East London) and all that it has to offer - and will look to help anyone else make the most of it too - we're happy to give insight into cultural, culinary and cocktail experiences!
We've travelled pretty extensively and love meeting people from around the world.
