"Best views in London - Far exceeded expectations - Fab bedroom suite with glorious terrace - incredibly quiet but so central - Trendiest hood - Walk to Covent Garden..." share my home and have the best ever London experience.

The space
This is high-rise living at its most spectacular. Sunshine pours in from the triple aspect floor-to-ceiling windows, and with it, a view that takes in nigh on every major London landmark; St Paul’s Cathedral, The London Eye, The Gherkin, Tate Modern,The Telecom Tower, Canary Wharf… There's a 1500 (YES 1500) sq foot wrap around terrace to enjoy the views and outdoor dining throughout the summer

Even if splendid vistas were all that was on offer, you’d be moving in. But turn your back on the windows and you’ll find two very large double bedrooms, an enormous open plan living space equipped with beautiful leather furniture and an ultra-modern kitchen. Fully furnished, including large screen plasma TV, wifi and luxury finishings with lots of storage space. Kitchen is fully fitted - toaster, microwave, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven.

And when your feet touch the ground again, you’ll discover that you’re right in zone 1. A short walk can have you wandering in Piccadilly, Covent Garden or Trafalgar Square passing the British Museum, The National Gallery or the British Library on the way. Or Tate Modern, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, the SouthBank Centre, all the theatres and opera, the choice is entirely yours; take a Boris bike, or a bus from outside the door and the sights of London are all less than 10 minutes away.

Clerkenwell was where London’s watchmakers plied their trade, now, you can pick up some jewellery in nearby Hatton Garden, or pad over to historic Smithfield for a meal at the Michelin starred St John. Surprisingly serene for such a central location, Clerkenwell boasts a number of historic taverns and eateries, including London’s original gastropub, The Eagle. Pick up coffee and a cake on pretty Exmouth Market before browsing the book and record shops, and then, perhaps on to Angel to hang with the trendy Islingtonites?

Renting one out of 2 bedrooms to a single, 2 singles (air bed plus normal bed) or couple only, to share with me and very cute Cocker Spaniel

Where you’ll be

London, United Kingdom

I cycle everywhere - it's flat and takes 8 minutes to Covent Garden 15 minutes to Oxford Street, 15 minutes to Regents Park, 30 minutes to Hyde Park, 20 minutes to Buckingham Palace.

Islington, Clerkenwell and Exmouth Market (I sit on the corner of all three) are all really exciting areas to explore with abundant shopping, eating and drinking beyond your imagination

You're renting my beautiful home where I have lived for the past 15 years since it was newly built. I like to live simply without clutter. I spend a large part of the year travelling, spending much time at my home in Barcelona.
