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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nicola and Michael's place. The location was excellent (easy access to transit, groceries, restaurants, etc.), the room was spotless, and the hosts went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend a stay here!
Lovely hosts; made us feel welcome & supplied us with helpful local Information.
Nicola was terrific. She was not at home when I arrived due to a work meeting. She left very clear directions about how to access entry to her home which worked quite smoothly.
She had asked in advance whether there was anything she could pick up at the store for my visit. I asked for yogurt and fresh fruit and these were awaiting me in the fridge. She answered all my questions with clear information.
The room and ensuite bathroom were lovely and I felt very comfortable to enter and leave at any time.
Cet endroit est idéal pour séjourner à Londres !
La chambre avec salle de bain/wc privatif est confortable et agréable, les pièces partagées également. La maison est très sympa et dans un cadre privilégié : le long d'un canal, tranquillité assurée et petits canards en prime ! Juste à côté, le parc Victoria est super agréable également, et le Pavillon pour se restaurer à ne pas manquer, au dessus du parc plein de petits restaurants également.
Proximité métro (Bethnal Green et Mile End) et plusieurs bus dont notre favori le 8 qui vous amène à Bethnal Green, Shoreditch, la City, et enfin Tottenham court road en passant près du British Museum...
Mais surtout et avant tout : les hôtes, Nicola et son mari sont très gentils, de très bons conseils, très accueillants, et feront tout pour que votre séjour soit réussi ! Ils savent aussi se montrer discret (nous aimions discuter avec eux mais ce n'est pas une obligation !) et vous laissent profiter de la cuisine, du salon, des extérieurs, et c'est très appréciable, de plus vous avez votre clé et vous êtes libre d'aller et venir quand vous voulez.
Bref tout pour plaire ! Nous avons pu nous reposer de nos journées à marcher et visiter... Un véritable petit coin de paradis londonien... Et de formidables hôtes ! Chaudement conseillé !!!
Nicola & Michael were wonderfully accommodating hosts for my father on an extended trip to London - the location was directly behind my flat, and Dad felt happy and comfortable coming and going as necessary throughout the week he was sleeping in their Airbnb room...
Dad was particularly pleased with the bed and convenience of the en suite, and commented how peaceful and quiet the room was to stay in. The resident two year old was perfectly charming and had a lovely time showing Dad all of his favourite toys one morning! Nicola and Michael were super helpful on the last day where we got a bit muddled with communication on when Dad would check out, and were flexible and accommodating to our extended period of not being able to get hold of each other! Thanks so much for making my father so welcome and at ease throughout his time in London with me and my partner.
Nicola and her family were very welcoming and helpful with all the information you could need. They live in a lovely part of London, well served by tube and bus routes. The room and bathroom were very nice.
We had the best week staying with Nicola, Michael and Conor! Their home is in a perfect location with a beautiful big park across the road, right on a nice canal with many nice restaurants and cafes in walking distance. Someone was always available to help us out with navigating London or suggesting things to do. There are underground stations and bus stops nearby that made it super easy to get around London. Check in was easy (even when we arrived late at night) with spot on directions and it is a safe neighbourhood. The room was clean, big and bright and had everything we needed. We felt very at home staying with Nicola and Michael, and Conor is an absolute little gem! We don't think we could have picked a better place to stay in London! Be sure to check out the local area (on a 'boris bike' is great!) because some of our best times in London were around the home. Thanks guys :)

About the Host, Nicola
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.
