About this listing
We have a private double room to let in our East London loft situated on a cobbled courtyard in Stoke Newington, only a few streets north of Dalston, and merely a 20min bus ride to Liverpool Street or Kings Cross.
Please note that at the moment we can't take bookings more than 30 days in advance, so if you are looking for accommodation within the next month, please carry on reading.
Stoke Newington is a great area with many bohemian cafés, bars, pubs and international restaurants all within a short walk. Take a 5min walk North and you hit Church street, a 'village like' street full of restaurants, deli's, independent shops, boutiques and a beautiful park (Clissold), as well as one of the ‘magnificent seven’ Victorian garden cemeteries of London (Abney Park).
We are within walking distance of the exceptionally hip area, Dalston, and its many clubs and bars, and a quick bus/train ride to Shoreditch, Hoxton and Brick Lane, famous for their street art scene and creative industries.
We have organic food shops nearby, 24hrs open corner shop, and the Saturday farmers market is 2 min. away.
5min. walk to either...
- 24hr bus that goes directly to Shoreditch/Brick lane, the City, Central London, Kings Cross and Victoria.
- Overground train (Rectory Road) which takes you to Liverpool Street Station in 15mins, from where you can connect to Central & West London.
15 min walk to...
- Dalston Kingsland overground train.
We also have a private car park lot available at the back of the building at no extra cost.
We take pride on our characterful home, which is within an old warehouse building and has high ceilings, large windows and exposed wood beams. We have two bedrooms and open plan living room/kitchen. Stuart works with many internationally renowned graffiti artists, and so our flat is its own mini gallery, with many original pieces hanging (and some painted directly) on the walls.
We have a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, and wifi internet; we can even offer you the use of a computer if you need.
The apartment is on the first floor and is reached by a wide staircase, however there is no lift.
Your room has a double bed, a roll top antique desk, storage and hanging space. It also features some fine examples of contemporary British street art, including pieces by artists whose work has made it into the hands of the US president.
Clean lining and towels are provided and the bathroom is just next to your room.
I am currently traveling, so you will be sharing the flat with Stuart and our two cats, who freely wonder around the flat.
Stuart is Scottish/Caribbean and I am Mexican/ Chilean, we both work in creative fields and love good food!
We are very sociable and relaxed, the area is full of artists and musicians, and so consequently, there's quite often someone popping by for a cup of tea so meeting new friends during your stay is almost guaranteed. But we also respect privacy and quiet times.
Our kitchen is always well stocked, with a vast array of exotic spices and sauces from our travels, and we are both avid cooks, so there's always something interesting at hand, any specifics can be bought within a short walking distance. As we mentioned before, we are also surrounded by a fantastic variety of restaurants, catering for everything from meat-lovers to vegans and everything in between.

The host was great - very welcoming and made us feel at home and suggested some great things to do!
The apartment is as unique as it looks in the photographs and is an experience in itself.
Stuart was an awesome host who made me feel welcome and gave me a lot of tips for traveling around and exploring the city. The space has tonnes of character and the neighbourhood has loads of restaurants and other amenities to try out.
Hemos estado cinco días y es un sitio muy agradable. Stuart es una persona encantadora y amigable. Por la noche es un poquito largo el camino de vuelta a su casa pero por todo lo demás merece la pena alojarse allí. Repetiremos...
Being with Chu is always like being with family! We've been there for the third time and we'll come again more times. At least once a year for Teamas :D All the other guests and neighbours and friends are awesome as well, it's really a great time all around! cheers!

Hi there, I'm Stuart,
