You might be sharing the communal areas of the flat with either another airbnb guest or me and my super cute toy poodle! During March, April and May 2013 there is a guest in the second bedroom who is an art teacher staying between Monday - Friday with two small dogs.

I work in my nearby art studio and live nearby. I have lived in London all my life and in the block for 9 years. I love London and I particularly love this area. If you want any advice about cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries or other things to do I would be more than happy.

  • thank you Claire. My son and I loved the cozy feeling of your place, the light AND of course the view. Great location too. All the best to you. Gisele

  • It was a delight visiting Claire's fantastic sky-high flat with an all-London view once more. Claire is a great host, and the location of her place is perfect for anyone who prefers East London to the boring old West End with its tedious Leicester Square and Oxford Circus and all the same-old, same-old places (although you can get to the West End easily enough if you really want to…). The flat has everything you need and is a great base for a stay in London.

  • Amazing flat, very hip location :-). Had a wonderful stay and can easily recommend it to everyone. Claire was easy-going and very helpful. And the view from the apartment was spectacular!

  • Claire was really friendly and easy to get in contact with. I needed a place last minute and she saved my bacon with her quick responses and friendly and flexible attitude. The place is stunning, inside the views are probably some of the best of the entire city with a wrap around 280° view of the city. Being unfamiliar with the area I was a bit iffy at first about the exterior of the building but the apartment was very clean and super cool and funky with great giant canvases on the walls and a lovely room with plenty of storage space and more spectacular views on London. The area is very hip with tons of great restaurants and shops literally around the corner and just a couple of minutes walk to the really fun and hip Hoxton and Brick Lane! Some of the best meals of my entire trip were in this area! Claire also provided a website with lots of local recommendations and was quick to offer suggestions of places to go nearby! Highly recommended and I will be looking for this place again when I visit!

  • I must confess i'm a repeat offender - this is my third stay at Claire's flat and always a great pleasure! Although the building doesn't look great at first, the flat is really charming, very clean, and the view is astounding! There is a park nearby if you like to jog, and Hoxton Square is not far. Claire is always cheerful and considerate. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

  • I was here for 2 nights and it was great. The living room had a great view and was spacious. Claire also gave us tips on where to go, what to do and how to get there so we had no problems and had a great time exploring East London and other areas.

About
I'm a London born artist working with drawing, performance and sound. My favourite part of London is where the flat is: Hoxton in Central East London. I have a studio close to the flat in Hoxton so I'm usually nearby unless I'm out of town - I do travel quite a lot but have some people to help with the flats while I'm abroad. I run super long distances and usually do a marathon every few months, so let me know if you want any advice on running routes. It's possible to run for 20 or 30 miles from my flat with only being on a road for a couple of minutes.. I enjoy welcoming guests and hope to show off the best of London!
