About this listing
Welcome to our home. We are a couple with an 10 year old son living in a very lively, friendly part of London in the North Eastern Borough of Hackney.
Spacious loft room with double bed.
Additional double futon mattress for second guest if required.
Private en suite bathroom with shower/WC
Fresh bed linen/towels.
Hair dryer and basic toiletries.
Kettle in room for tea and coffee.
We had our loft converted in our Victorian terrace around five years ago and it has created a fantastic opportunity for family and friends to come and stay with us. Along the way we've occasionally let it out to friends of friends with great success, so we're spreading the word here on airbnb.
It's a lovely light airy loft room with large windows spanning the rear of the house and a large velux to the front. There is a super comfortable double bed and we have a double futon mattress to lay out on the floor if you prefer separate beds (please request).
The private bathroom is on the same floor with a wc / shower and velux window to the front.
The loft with en-suite bathroom is entirely on its own floor so it's a very private part of the house. Having said this, you do have to walk right through and up the main stairs of our home to get there. For this reason the general rule is that we ask you to return home before midnight, or just try and be super quiet coming up the stairs if you do come home late at night. So if it's none stop partying you're after we aren't for you. But if you're here for sightseeing, on a work trip or just visiting friends and family and would like a welcome but private place to come back to at the end of a busy day, then we might be just what you are looking for.
We don't generally offer use of the rest of the house or kitchen facilities but there are plenty of great places to eat at locally for breakfast and beyond, which we will be happy to recommend.
There is a kettle in the room for tea/coffee making.
Interaction with guests
We will be here throughout your stay but pretty much keep to ourselves as a family, leaving you free to enjoy your own space and privacy.
We are happy to give you all the information you need about transport, sightseeing and everything that is available in the local area. Just ask!
Other things to note
Our house is a mix of modern and vintage style with an easy going atmosphere. It's not always tidy (apart from your room!) To be honest we are not an uber tidy sort of family! It's just a happy house with a nice feeling and a few toys hanging around here and there. Our son loves to meet new guests but won't infringe on your privacy and he's not an early, noisy riser by any means.
Parking is residents permit only - but we can offer guest parking permits should you wish to bring your car. (£3.50 a day Friday-Saturday)
Arrival time to be confirmed in advance.
As this is our family home and we have to get up early for school/work etc. we ask guests to return home by midnight during the week. We're a bit more flexible at the weekend!
We don't provide breakfast or use of the kitchen but there are loads of great places to eat at locally and we are happy to recommend our favourites.
