A spacious and bright double bedroom and private bathroom in a newly built development set alongside London's most prized and prestigious waterway: the Regent's canal.
Your hosts pride themselves in offering bespoke guidance to ensure a memorable visit to London and their home.
We offer a spacious, modern and quiet room with a very comfortable double bed, wardrobe and writing desk. There’s a window seat overlooking the Regent’s canal in the room.
We can set up a comfortable foldable futon single mattress that we can put on the floor, next to the bed. It works well for a couple and one young child or very close family or friends ☺
Be lulled asleep by the sound of water falling over Johnson lock and wake up to homemade jam and crumpets.

Interaction with Guests
This is a friendly household and it is our wish that you feel at home when you stay with us. We will leave you to do your own thing but also we are happy to give any directions/info you may need to ensure your stay is perfect.
We live in a new development on the first floor with open plan living space, two bedrooms (one will be yours), two bathrooms (one will be yours), a fully fitted kitchen to which you’ll have total access and a balcony overlooking the canal. We have a privileged view of Canary Wharf, the Regent’s canal and that of the communal gardens. We’re located in Stepney, a multicultural part of London that has seen a lot of regeneration thanks to its proximity to the Olympic site.
We are a three minute walk away from Mile End Park and a 10-minute walk from the nearest Tube station, offering great transport links on the Central, Hammersmith & City and the District lines.
There are also good 24-hour transport connections to central London, with the #25 and the # 205 buses taking you there in about thirty minutes through fascinating neighbourhoods.
You could also explore the wide network of canals by walking or cycling to see a different side of London. To roam along East London’s historic canal network is to unlock a tranquil world only yards from the bustle of this fantastic city.

Bernard was the perfect host; very warm, cheerful, and ready to provide advice! My girlfriend and I felt he supplied just the right balance of fun conversation and personal space, not to mention a fantastic apartment. The location is in a nice neighborhood, just a brief walk through a lovely park to get to the Mile End station. The bedroom has a decent amount of space and the entire home is kept clean yet welcoming. We definitely recommend it!
A fantastic host.
It was my first staying as a guest.
I learned a lot from him.
Thank you very much!
What a wonderful stay I had with Bernard and michael!! Such good people, really enjoyed their company, the room was immaculate and Felt completely at home would have loved to stay longer, you also have you're own bathroom which is a nice touch, they really do go that extra mile, so helpful, fun, yet totally chilled.. Made my stay in London for work a relaxing enjoyable one I'll def be back :) xx
Oh, where to begin.. I picked this area because i had a concert to go to at Troxy, at my last night of the stay. That was great for sure. But the extra joy came from the nice room/the view/the pleasant house and.. Bernard and Michael! To share time and stories with them is the other highlight of my Londontrip! Recommended!
Bernard e Michael sono veramente gentili e ospitali, ci hanno messo subito a nostro agio facendoci sentire a casa. La casa era esattamente come descritta e veramente deliziosa.
Le indicazioni per raggiungerla chiare ed efficaci.
La zona assolutamente sicura e pulita.
Fantastic hosts who couldn't have been more welcoming. Bernard manages to get just the perfect balance between making you welcome and offering you privacy. Relaxed friendly and charming. Location was ideal for me especially with parking. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Will be particularly useful for visitors new to London.
Très bel appartement, dans un quartier calme et agréable, proche du centre, bus et métro directs. Bernard nous a donné de bons conseils pour nos visites journalières. Nous sommes ravis de leur acceuil chaleureux et encore un grand remerciement pour Louis.
