Great spacious architectural feel, close to canal and bars.
THE FLAT I x double bedroom (There is also an extra single put up bed in lounge if required)
My home is spacious, new and has a really cool architectural feel It's full of beautiful Art by artists and ceramicists living and working in the the iconic Shoreditch and London City area. Prices are available on request.
Courtyard entrance- and secure bike parking.. Car parking on street is free at weekends.
The flat has a separate double bedroom, bathroom (with shower and bath), spacious open plan sitting room with full high spec kitchen including; Bosh cooker and hob, dishwasher, washing machine and ample cupboards.
There is also password protected internet but you will probably want to spend your time in the garden at Dukes sampling their amazing real ale and tapas menu or strolling/biking along the canal at the end of my road where you will find the Proud Archivist restaurant.
You can walk/ bike along the canal east to Broadway Market ( 15 mins) to the fabulous street market on Saturdays and London Fields Lido and park. Or a bit further to east to Victoria park which has a great village with lots of out door eating and individual shops. If you go west along the canal for 20 mins you get to the famous Islington Upper St where you can shop, party, eat and visit the Almedia Theatre which has some fine productions.
You can't ever get bored here!!!
Going north there is a great little jazz club called the Vortex and the Rio Cinema - in Dalston now ( 5 min) north up the Kingsland road with a fringe theatre as well as many trendy bars and clubs.
South is the coolest place - Shoreditch with all types of eating and clubs see the street art on Rivington St , plus Spitalfields market, Columbia Road market and you can head into the city and see the great Gerkin, lloyds and Ledenhall market, the oldest most cute place on cobbled streets!!
Even if you still want to visit St Pauls - its only a bus ride on the 242 which stops outside tesco near our station ( Hagerston ) and shopping has never been so calm and stylish as in One New Change, right next to St Pauls. There is even a great champagne bar on the roof !!!
Oxford st is a bus 242 ( also outside our tesco ) and this goes past St Pauls and Holborn and goes right the way to Tottenham Court road.
Westminster is a district line from Monument or a simple change onto the jubilee line at Canada water, from our station Haggerston. Whilst on the over line, don't forget to see Wapping and the famous Captain Kid and Prospect of Whitby some of the oldest inns in London.
Trafalgar sq and Piccadilly are only a short tube change from Liverpool St.
Conveniently located in trendy Shoreditch 2 mins from Haggerston and Dalston Overground for travelling to the heart of the east end! Bus stops are on Kingsland road close to Tesco.
Also one bus to Islington Upper st. This is a really cool area full of fun alternative bars. It's the perfect place to head out on the town in London. Or walk along the canal - 15 mins
5 mins from Liverpool Street station, and on numerous short bus routes, (phone number hidden) the city and Islington Upper St.

Interaction with Guests
I will meet you to check you in and show you around. I can make this any time to suit you.
I usually ask you to text me about half an hour before arrival so that I can get out of work in time to meet you.
Really friendly and residential with a touch of cool.
Bus, over line, tube from Liverpool st
No smoking please.
Please be careful with our blinds as they are a little delicate.
Ask me before altering the heating or water controls.
We have our own bin located in a bin cupboard outside next to our outer door.
Mostly people treat the flat as if it were theirs and are very careful with everything, so thank you in advance.
Teresa was extremely helpful from my initial enquiry right through to the end of our booking.
We used the apartment to film an interview in for the afternoon and the space was perfect, clean and tidy.
We would definitely use the space again.
The reservation was canceled 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The flat is a beautiful as the pictures. Teresa was a very welcoming host. I would definately stay again.
The apartment looks exactly as it is shown on the photo: very clean and nicely decorated. It is in a good location, quiet street and the basics are there (toilet paper, shower gel). I was delayed in London airport due to luggage problem however the owner waited to greet me with a warm welcome and showed me the apartment and how to feed her cat. There is no internet/WIFI, it would have been great to have that service but otherwise everything else was perfect.
The apartment was very clean and nice. Teresa introduced us to the place and was a great host. The bar below, Dukes, is a great place for dinner and beers. No noise from the bar at all. Alfie the cat was amazing. Superb place to rent.
Very cosy flat, just like in the picture. Shoreditch is a very nice neighborhood. The apartment is easy to reach by bus, but we didn't really need to move far... we spent almost all the weekend around Shoreditch. Lot to see, drink and eat there and Teresa shared useful tips when we arrived.
I booked Teresa's flat for my parents. They said Teresa was great, very accommodating and the location was great. Unfortunately the flat is directly above a noisy pub, the bed was incredibly firm and the lounge smelt unpleasant when the windows were closed (presumably of the resident cat). The people upstairs also had a party until 04:30 one night.
I had burned a scented joss stick before you arrived but I assure you there was no residue of cat smell because everything is washed and clean.
I can't answer for the people above except that they rarely have parties and I regret you were unlucky to be here then.
My bed is brand new.
