I'm a freelance journalist. I tend to travel a fair bit for work, and I want to rent my flat out while I'm away.
Our second stay at Patrick's proved as good as the first. Patrick is easy to contact, extremely helpful and location is excellent.
Excellent flat in a great location :) Patrick was very friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend to others :)
Patrick's a great host. Flat is cute and comfortable. Nice east side location. Great London option.
Patrick's appartment was great and we truly felt welcome, Just like home!
The neighbourhood is the coolest, lots of happening, plenty of good places to dine+ Patrick has left us an excellent recommendations in his very useful House Manuel and of course in the city guides he writes [you'll find plenty of those], he was very attentive to our needs and easy to contact with.
Thanks Patrick for a great vacation.
I stayed here for three weeks on a business trip to London with my partner. It was great -- the canal is very nice and there are TONS of little coffee shops to work from in every direction.
The apartment was nice and cozy, well designed and felt like home. By the time we left we forgot that we didn't live there. I'd love to come back!
We enjoyed our stay at Patrick's comfy place.
Conveniently located for our needs it ticked all our boxes well.
Patrick was easily contactable for the few questions we had on arrival.
We hope to get the opportunity to stay here again next year.
This is a great place to stay if you want to enjoy London. The area is alive with great cafes, restaurants, bars and weekend markets and it's only a short journey to central London and the museums, galleries, theatre etc.
Patrick is a great host. He responded quickly and was helpful while arranging our visit and also while we were there, though he was actually out of the country.The flat has a good feel the minute you walk in. It's bright and welcoming, well laid out, comfortable and clean and has all the facilities you need.The kitchen is well equipped and everything in the bathroom works well and it's also a nice bright space. The private terrace off the living room is another nice space to be in. Two of us stayed for five nights and we really enjoyed it. We'd highly recommend it to anyone.
Patrick was a wonderful host and even better at communication. He replied instantly to our questions and was even kind enough to leave us a bottle of red after our disastrous day at the airport.
The apartment was cosy and in a great location - we didn't have to wander far to be near great bars/pubs and restaurants. I would recommend this apartment for anyone looking to be in the Hackney area!
We had a most enjoyable vacation which was enhanced by the lovely place we stayed at. A cosy and comfortable place with a very friendly and extremely helpful host.
We we a little worried to be staying out side the "center", but in retrospect, it actually added to our wonderful experience - giving us a chance to get to know the quaint neighborhoods and markets near by.
I stayed at Patrick's flat for just under a month, and the pictures are pretty accurate!
The flat was located within walking distance of some great markets, pubs and independent shops. It was also very short walking distance to public transit and was one quick bus or metro ride to central London.
The flat itself was bright, clean, and quiet. The bed was very comfortable, and the WiFi and appliances worked perfectly. The washroom had a large tub, great water pressure, and I never ran out of hot water! Overall, the flat felt very homey!
The neighbourhood was good - I walked to places every day (early morning, noon and night) by myself and always felt safe.
Arranging the booking with Patrick was very easy - he's friendly and easy going, and he was at the flat to give me a quick orientation upon arrival. Even though he was out of the country for most of my stay, Patrick was still very accessible, responding to e-mails and texts very quickly, and he left several contact numbers in case of any emergencies. The check-in/check-out process was also very quick and painless!
Patrick was a pleasure to host. So nice to communicate with left my place quite tidy. I give him 2 thumbs up
Great Guest. Totally recommend.
I've known Patrick for 12 years now, and quite simply he is the best Londoner I know! In fact his actual job is to go around telling people how incredible London, and a bunch of other amazing cities are.
Patrick is very easy going and kind, you can't possibly not get along with him - and if you want to know a little or a lot more about London he's the best person you could ask. His house is beautiful and in one of the trendiest parts of London right now!
