WELCOME HOME:

Large West Shoreditch loft warehouse on the top floor with private rooftop patio. Juxtaposition of brickwork + stainless steel, vintage + new, very posh + hippy aesthetic.
Hardwood floors, high ceilings, painted brick, tiles, dimmer switches throughout. Your space is the only flat on the 3rd floor accessed by stairs only.Professionally cleaned for your stay. Playthings such as board games, books, puzzles and a large chalkboard. The ukeleles, tabla, guitar and bowls should keep any musician engaged. Multiple yoga mats, pilates equipment and numbers to an in house private trainer and a masseuse/spa services means you stay fit and spa at home if desired.

LIVING SPACE:

The open-plan living area is spacious and informal with fully a equipped kitchen.The large bare warehouse windows with double doors to open wide flood the space with natural light and city views. Skylight features in hall and stairs with unlimited sky on the 950 sqf roof top terrace. Raw edges and Original artwork ground the loft in its Shoreditch roots. With their love of art, music and living in the creative class, your hosts have no requirement for a TV but have set up a projector with speakers and a great white wall. Plug in your laptop and enjoy a collection of documentaries, art films and a couple of Hollywood productions.

DREAMTIME:

Your bedroom has a new Queen bed and you can hang your clothes up on the hangers.
Off the room is access to your ensuite bathroom for towels, soap, cupboard space, toilet, bath/ shower.

US:

Your hosts are in international friends artistic, scientific and philanthropic interests. BETTER THAN YOUR USUAL SHARE: The flat below lacks a kitchen so the upstairs flat is used by us when we want to do food prep (the one in this ad) is more private than most shares on this site. We are pleasant but private people who like to travel often to our residences out of the city.

Area:

Located on a quite street in Zone 1 you are minutes walk to the tube, Shoreditch house, Hoxton Square, White Cube Gallery,15, Tramshed, Le Trois Garcon and Banksy's.
Shoreditch is one of the trendiest parts of town. You are a short walk away to pop-up bars and galleries, and some of the capital’s best bars and resturants.If you want to hit the West End, the tube from Old Street to Oxford Circus takes around fifteen minutes.
Apparently the entire area has mouse problems. We ask that you do not leave out food. We are meticulous with the cleanliness of the place ...but there are mice in Shoreditch :(

  • Charisse was a warm and welcoming host. She is very responsive via email and phone and really flexible. The penthouse is a really special spot, with lots of light, furnished with thought and originality. The views from the rooftop patio are great. Located in Shoreditch, in the east end of London, this is a great spot for exploring the city. Independent shops, bars and restaurants (including some great spots for both cheap and fancy breakfast) are all over, and you're an easy walk to Old Street and Liverpool Street stations (tube) or Shoreditch High Street for overland (and lots of buses). But you could also make a day of walking through the financial district to St Pauls and along the Thames. A great find in a fab spot.

  • I helped out a friend recently, who is a PA for an A-list actress and needed to find a cracking last minute space in Shoreditch. Because of the discretion needed, her boss prefers not to stay in hotels and actually enjoys a local experience. The experience with this host was fantastic! On request and for a small additional financial contribution she provided so much more than asked for. The flat was covered in fresh flowers, fridge stocked with organic food, brand new linens and towels ready, a daily housekeeper, an evening cook and a nanny.
    When asking the mystery guest for her experience she relayed the following:
    “Whoa. Everything was perfect. The roof top terrace was a dream with views of sparkling city lights. The living space was perfect for my morning yoga. Light-filled, spacious and serene. Appreciated the vita mixer and juicer and open kitchen. I had the best sleeps of my life in this place. What is the secret. I actually would have loved to meet the host. I could see from her books that we are in the same industry. Also, this ended up being a real creative experience. Sleeping there was only a bonus. Please apologise for not watering the bonsai!”

  • Charisse was very responsive straight forward and honest in her dealings with me. Mark was very happy with his stay and reported that the description and pictures were quite accurate. We look forward to future relations with this fine lady - thanks Charisse

  • Great place to stay! Located in a great and trendy area, really close to Hoxton Square ans its coffe houses, pubs and nightlife! Really close to old street tube station (northern line), so very easy to go anywhere! Good places to eat around! The place is beautiful and cosy and the hostests really nice, helpfull and willing to make your stay pleasant! Watch out if you have big suitcases because of the stairs!!! But even so, not impossible to manage the problem! ;) I recommend!!

  • Our first experience with Airbnb couldn’t have been any better. The place was very beautiful, clean & peaceful and the location was great in a cool neighborhood.
    Me and my friends had lovely 3 days there. Thank you Char!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Char´s appartement really very much and everything worked perfectly - from the check in till we had to leave - Char is a very sensible person, most of the time we stayed in the app on our own, but when we met talking to her was always interesting, thanks for lots of gluten free tips - hope to come again one day! Besides: our kids fell in love with her baby Penelope!

  • We loved the apartment, the location and the great host! Char was very kind, generous and helpful, giving us lots of handy tips. Char & her family were very also very considerate in the shared space (we didn't see them much!!), but when we did overlap it was great to chat. The apartment was bright, light & spacious (for London!), with an updated bathroom & new kitchen. There are 3 train stations within easy walking distance. Most tourist sights were within 5-10 stops, very easy! Shoreditch is an up and coming area, full of warehouse conversions, cool cafes tucked away in side streets and little pubs on corners. Not many obvious tourists or kids in this part of Shoreditch, but still very family friendly! Highly recommended!!!! Many thanks & best wishes to Char & family!

  • Absolutely wonderful! The flat was gorgeous and Char was a very gracious host. Tiny criticism was that we had got some nibble foods (dips etc) to have before we went out but there wasn't really much room in the fridge.
    Such a small criticism, everything else was perfect :)

  • It was GREAT! The rooftop was awesome and Char (email hidden). We would definitely go here again!

About
As a host : Im interested in the utilization of underused space and of creating opportunities for collaborative consumption. As this is a not for profit offering we are discerning with choosing our guests. Had to make a cancellation as a host once which I really felt guilty about (avoiding parties) but other than that all the reviews are glowing... please take a look ! As a guest: Non-smoking, non-partying, discrete airbnb guest (don't mind saying Im your friend from out of town to neighbours. What I appreciate is a place that is cleaned to a hotel standard. x
