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!
What a delightful part of London to spend time in, and what delightful hosts are Michael and Nicola (not to mention Conor). The room was as described and we really enjoyed Victoria Park and the village. It was great to be so close to the action in London with a quiet and peaceful "home" to come back to.
Nicola and her family gave my sister and her boyfriend a comfortable feeling!
It was a pleasure for them to stay with them in their wonderful house.
All was like described and even better =)
Thanks a lot. We totally recommend the stay with Nicola!
best wishes, Nicole
Nicola and Michael are truly amazing hosts. They were friendly, welcoming, and flexible about my arrival time. In every way, they really went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.
Located as it is in London, Nicola and Michael's place is a magnificent value. The room and private bathroom are both larger than they appeared to me in the photos, and there were a thousand little touches that I really appreciated: very soft sheets and towels, a great mattress, a bolt added to the bedroom door, closet space, everything sparkling clean... I felt like I was getting the best of both worlds: all the comfort and privacy of a hotel plus the friendly local hosts you get on airbnb.
Really, one of the best airbnb stays I've ever had (and I've had a lot!).
Nicola has been a lovely and patient host. Even before I moved in she helped answer all of my questions over airbnb and taught me how to get around and to my workplace. She even fetched me to her home from the tube station on my first day as the sun has set. Her house is really BEAUTIFUL and clean, she also gave me new towels as I stayed for more than a week. I had to learn how to live and get around London if I relocate and Nicola has helped make my trip an insightful and fulfiling one. Thank u Nicola and family!
We stayed for four days and we had a really good time. The location is perfect, quiet and well connected to everything. The bedroom is big and confortable and the ensuite bathroom is nice and clean.
Nicola and Michael are great hosts, always ready to help and suggest places to visit or where to go for a nice breakfast or dinner but always respectful of our privacy.
Nicola and Michael were awesome hosts. Everything worked smooth and Nicola provided detailed infos to get to their house.
The home was wonderfull and super clean, easy to get there with public tranportation and a really nice area.
Thanks Nicola for the lovely stay! :)
My staying with Nicola, Michael and the lovely little Conan was great. They’re very nice and helpful and the house is beautiful, new and clean. It’s located along the Canal, which makes it quiet and special. theres a park in front of, where we can easy exercise. I’d recommend the place and the hosts are very kind and try to make your staying better given you advices. Theres always guides and magazines around with informations about London and the access to either Nicola and Michael is very easy, you can always call or text them, they really try to make your time in London great.

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!
