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.

During our short stay at Bernard & Michael's home we found them to be most helpful, and they made us feel very comfortable in their home.
Bernard provided excellent advice on what to see and do in London the two days we were there.
Their home is lovely, and the room was just as described in the website. You will have a good amount of privacy at their home as Bernard and Michael are very considerate hosts. Everything you could need & more was provided!
Super, ruhige Lage mit Blick auf den Kanal und nur wenige Minuten zur Tube. Haben uns bei Bernard und Michael sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit gerne wieder bei ihnen übernachten.
Vor allem die Tipps, was man sich wie, wo, wann am besten ansehen soll haben uns sehr weitergeholfen und uns trotz regnerischen Wetters einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt in London beschert.
Bernard and Michael made us feel completely at home. Very relaxed, very open and friendly. Bernard greeted us and gave us all the information we might need to have a great stay in London. He provided us with links before we arrived and maps upon our arrival. He has many useful recommendations of where to eat and visit based on our interests. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and has a lovely view. There are many restaurants close by and an underground station only about 10 minutes away by feet. I will definitely try to stay there again the next time I am in London.
Tout était parfait! Super accueil de Bernard : flexible pour nos heures d'arrivée et de départ, bon plan pour notre itinéraire. Petit déjeuné compris et très varié. Nous avons pu déjeuné sur la petite terrasse qui a une très chouette vue sur le canal.
Pas trop excentré et très calme: que demander de plus!
Je recommande totalement!
My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Bernard and Micheals home ,we were made to feel at home straight away nothing was a problem or to much trouble, we certainly shopped till we dropped and sleep so well in such a lovely home.
Fabulous canal and Canary Wharf views and fabulous coffee, will defiantly return , just fabulous :)
Bernard and Michael were flawless and accommodating hosts. Bernard met with my girlfriend and me every morning to help us plan our day in London to the fullest. Our breakfast of crumpets, fruit, cereal, breads, and beverages kept us going every day. Our room overlooked the local canal and the subtle sound of flowing water helped us sleep every night. Our private restroom had plentiful and quick-heating hot water. The place is about a 10-minute walk to Mile End tube station and about 5 minutes to a bus stop with direct service to central London. It's walking distance to a few small grocery stores if you need anything. Thanks again so much for everything, guys!
Lovely views of canal during day and skyline at night. Very friendly hosts and a relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed our stay there.
Only a few minutes from mile end underground and plenty of public transport options. Everything nice and clean with a nice vibe. Would totally recommend.
