An entire two double bedroom flat in an award winning 1972 ex-council tower block with stunning panoramic views across the East End, City of London and the West End. The flat is ideal for musicians as it has a piano, guitar - although I don't have these regularly tuned.

There is a large open plan living room/kitchen with 180 degree double glazed windows and balcony, bespoke kitchen with washing machine. There is a day bed in the living room - just larger than a single bed which can be used for additional guests. There is also a spare single mattress which can be set up in any room.
There is also a huge aquarium in which resides my 25 year old terrapin! In case you stay more than a few days we ask if you could feed her a little - in case you don't want to do that we will drop round to do it though.
Most of the furniture and furnishings are high-end designer or handmade by local artisans or designers.

The two bedrooms have large windows looking onto the stunning city view with large wardrobes. One of the bedrooms also has a desk.
The rest of flat has beautiful laminated floors with custom made digital tiles in the custom-made bathroom.

The flat has been used for films and magazine photoshoots. A feature film called 'Panic' was shot almost entirely in the flat and can be rented on iTunes.

If the flat is booked on the dates you want, I have an almost identical flat in the same block - take a look at my other listings!

Other things to note

Please note that the flat isn't suitable for parties or large gatherings and noise must be minimal in the evening and at night.

Check out is 11am.
Luggage may be left until 1pm for an extra charge of £10 per case. If luggage is still there beyond 1pm we will need to charge for an extra night.


House Rules
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 3PM

The most important rule is no music above laptop volume after 9pm. I have had many complaints from the neighbours about parties and it's come to the point where I may not be able to continue to rent the flat via airbnb if I get another complaint. For this reason there is a £100 fine if I receive any complaints from neighbours. Apologies to be so strict about this.

Check out is 11am.
Luggage may be left until 1pm for an extra charge of £10 per case. If luggage is still there beyond 1pm we will need to charge for an extra night.

Please keep the room and living spaces exactly how they were found and report any breaks or accidents as soon as possible.

Lock both front doors when leaving the flat and lock the main door behind you when entering.

Please keep the kitchen clean and tidy.

Please leave a reference after your stay!

The flat is very warm and welcoming, Claire gives attention to slight details to make you feel comfortable. One of the most amazing view of London as well. I strongly recommend (as I will probably book there again in the future!)
