The Space

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 an en suite bathroom with a full sized shower, toilet and compact sink. The bedroom 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.

The area is safe, social and the house is on a gated, secure road. Private on-site parking space is available at no extra charge - a real bonus for London!

You'll be provided with your own 'beeper' to access the secure road which the house is situated on.

Guest Access

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 Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

Transport:
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 and Hammersmith & City lines from Mile End (0.7 mile, 10 mins walk)
- Multiple local bus 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 9 month old baby in the house - he is quiet (most of the time!) and sleeps all night. 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. This is the reason the room is such good value as we're just getting back into hosting now after taking time out when he was born!

Thanks for looking, and we hope to welcome you to our home soon.

  • 100% as described, more then we have expected. We loved it.
    Nicola and her husband Michael are wonderful hosts. Warm, welcoming and very helpful.
    Baby Conor was a real sunshine. :-)

    The house is close to a wonderful park, where to have breakfast in the sun is a pleasure.
    Easy enough to go to central London.

    We slept like stones in that comfortable bed.
    Everything there you´ll need.

    In short: There was nothing we have missed!

    Thanks a lot!!!
    Would love to come back...

  • Nicola's place is (email hidden) to stay in London. Although it is a little bit far from the touristic attractions and 10-15 min away from a tube station, there are a lot of attractions nearby: an excellent park (Victoria Park) nearby and a lot of restaurants and pubs nearby. Nicola also gave us a lot of tips of where to go and where to not go. Also, the bed is really comfortable and there is an excellent shower. She also made sure that we feel comfortable there. I strongly recommend her place to stay on your visit to London.

  • My husband and I have nothing but the highest praise about Nicola's and Michael's lovely home, welcoming atmosphere and fantastic location. We loved our stay in the spacious room with en suite. Nicola even put fresh flowers in the room. I celebrated my birthday while there and the family surprised me with a party banner and card and even shared birthday pastries.

    The room was lovely, clean and bright. The house was exactly as portrayed. The location was between Mile End and Bethnal Green Underground stations and easy access to buses. It is very close to the financial districts near Canary Wharf if any one has to travel on banking business.

    Nicola and Michael shared their wealth of knowledge of the city, transportation, sights to see, restaurants and more....They were very generous with their time and sharing information.

    They, with baby Conner, truly made our visit to London memorable. Leaving a hotel is easy; leaving new friends is very difficult. This was an amazing experience.

  • Nicola and Michael were outstanding hosts. They were very helpful, kind and understanding. The information that was proved us made our stay in London very memorable. This was our first Airbnb experience and I can say without hesitation a most positive one. We cannot recommend more highly this lovely home by the canal in Bow.

    June 2014
  • This beautiful home is exactly as described. Michael and Nicola were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The property is a secure haven in the busyness of London with a picturesque outlook and yet, within walking distance of the centre. I cannot recommend this home more highly.

  • Fantastic, fantastic, Nicola and Michael were wonderful hosts, helpful, considerate and a total pleasure to meet.

    May 2014
  • Meeting Nicola and Michael was stunningly pleasant. They are marvellous hosts and made us feel at home. Moreover, as a result of their extensive experience in dealing with people from different nationalities, they apply their cultural awareness to make their guests feel completely at ease.
    The house is beautiful and warm and excellently located – by the canal and seconds from Victoria Park (and minutes away from the City!). The room is very spacious, quiet, bright and clean.

    My husband and I strongly recommend Nicola’s room – great value for money and superb atmosphere!

  • Nicola and Michael were the perfect host's, the attention and generosity they offered us was more than we could have expected the location is perfect and a first rate base to discover London, Michael even gave us a lift to the other side of town when an underground strike almost stalled our plans, we would highly recommend them to anybody
    thank you Nicola, Michael and little Conner.

  • Nicola and Michael (email hidden), and they are extremely friendly, enjoyable to hang out with, and helpful with things to do in the area. I stayed for five nights on a business trip, was very comfortable and had a great time as well. Victoria Park is right across the street, (email hidden) for breakfast right on the lake, and there are restaurants on the other side. The closest tubes are Mile End and Bethnal Green both of which are an easy 10-15 minute walk (along a great canal to Mile End) and on the Central Line so it's relatively quick to get into central London. The East End--Brick Lane, Shoreditch, etc. where lots is happening--are also very close, maybe a 20 or 25 minute walk. My first experience with airbnb and a very good one.

About
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.
