About The Owner

Working in the financial markets in the City of London, I bought this apartment in 2001 as it was one of the highest quality apartment buildings in a great location that has stood the test of time. I wanted a place that enabled me to walk to work, or a short cab ride home. I travel a great deal and to have a building with 24 hour porterage was essential to ensure safety and security while I was away. With a great waterside view and offering such a sense of space, when an opportunity arose to buy a larger loft in Shoreditch, this apartment was just too good to let go. I love the area and still live, work and socialise here.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Why The Owner chose City of London Financial District

Hoxton & Shoreditch is such a vibrant neighbourhood, crammed full of exciting bars, amazing restaurants, cool galleries, vintage boutique shops and is complete with a very cool vibe. There are plenty of live music venues, specialist lighting, clothing, book and furniture shops. There are cutting edge hairdressers, live comedy shows, parks and squares to hang out in. It is a neighbourhood with photographers, designers, artist galleries, loft apartments, juice bars and just so much more for any visitor to handle! Staying at my apartment offers you the opportunity to live in a very cool and hip neighbour that just doesn't stand still. If you are creative and enjoy being part of a vibe that is away from the common and popular regular tourist traps - but close enough to visit them, take the photo and tick the box, then this is the perfect spot for you!

With my personal created walking tour guides that will be waiting for you in the apartment, you cannot fail but to make the most of what the area has to offer - and it is huge!

What makes this apartment unique

After a busy day exploring just how cool and trendy the area is, it is a wonderful to return home, sitting on the balcony with a refreshing drink, watching Londoners go about their everyday business on and along the Regent's Canal from a private and secluded spot. If you enjoy jogging, you can jog for miles and miles along the waters edge, not crossing any roads and avoiding all the traffic. The apartment is located in a very happening and creative area with so much to offer to all tastes.

Seven, comfortable, beautiful days!

  • 5 out of 5
Peter, everything was exactly as described and your lovely place exceeded our expectations.
We were greeted at the airport very early by Roberto who was so pleasant and a good driver. Having you say goodbye to the previous occupants and turn around and freshen a room to accomodate our 86 year mother for a rest was beyond kind. The care and effort you put into the flat is obvious everywhere from equipped kitchen to info on all the sights
and local neighborhood treasues. The 76 bus just a two minute walk took us to central
London with ease. Loved the neighborhood with canal and great shops, markets and
restaurants. We had to go back to Sweet Thursday's twice for the fennel, sausage pizza and terrific salads. The De Beauvoir Deli is the place to get Scotch Eggs and Scones and is an easy walk. Sunday flower market and Sunday Pub Roast at Albion's also not to
be missed. We are so grateful our first London experience was spent here and will be
back. Thank you Peter for everything.

Fantastic time in London!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Peter we wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful flat. We found it to be so convenient when catching the bus or tube into the center of London. Unfortunately, we were only in London for four days and wished we had been able to stay longer. We have it on our agenda for next year's vacation; we will stay a full week.

The flat has everything you can imagine and more. The supermarket on the street level has everything you need and has fresh bread every morning. We rented bikes and rode them to the Saturday farmer's market near the canal, it was the best market with everything you could possible imagine and more.
It was nostalgic to part from such a beautiful area but it has left us with many memories to cherish for years to come.
Thank you again to Peter and Roberto both extremely professional and helpful. We hope to return in the near future. God Bless!!

Great Time in London!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Our six-day stay in London could not have been more perfect! A 100% rating is the LEAST we can give the overall experience. This was our first time in London. We are a family of four (20 year old son and 16 year old daughter).

Every picture and every 5 star review for this property is spot on. Peter was helpful from the moment we enquired about this rental. I loved that he met us upon arrival to show us around the flat and answer our questions.

The bus is right at your front door - which was great after our exhausting days. I loved having my coffee on the balcony and a short walk up the canal was Broadway Market which we enjoyed at the recommendation of Peter.

To put it simply .... it was perfect, and we would highly recommend this flat.

Thank you Peter!!

Yet another 5 star review for this flat and its owner

  • 5 out of 5
As a mobility-challenged person, finding a great accessible apartment is not a trivial endeavor. But this is not the main criterion which makes this flat so wonderful. The flat is very well appointed and really comfortable. Good bedding, plenty storage, full kitchen with a good-sized fridge, goo wi-fi. The balcony is an added bonus. Sitting there with coffee or favorite tipple and watching the world go by whether on the canal or the towpath is entertaining and soothing.
Whether for shopping, sightseeing, entertainement, public transportation is very close by and the owner, Peter, provides helpful and precise instructions whether for the bus, the tube, or a minicab. There is a small supermarket as well as a coffehouse in the building.
Many readers of this review will have stayed in excellent flats with all necessities, but what puts this flat in the more than superlative category is its owner, Peter, who just goes above and beyond what is expected. My family and I will return!

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family could not have been happier with staying at Peter's flat. The linens were of high quality, the place was spotless, the view of the canal was fun and delightful, and Peter couldn't have been a more gracious and accommodating host. He went above and beyond in making sure we had everything we needed and had incredibly thoughtful extras--like tube cards ready to use & guidebooks to borrow. It was a quiet haven after our busy London days allowing us to get the proper rest we needed. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Stay - 5 Stars

  • 5 out of 5
Hallo, wir waren über Pfingsten in London und verbrachten den Aufenthalt in diesem Appartment. Das Appartment ist perfekt. Gut gelegen im Zentrum von London bietet es perfekte Busverbindungen an. Die Nachbarschaft ist toll. Auf dem Kanal direkt vor dem Appartmenthaus befinden sich Hausboote und man kann in das englilsche Leben abseits des Tourísmus eintauchen. Das Appartment ist voll und hochwertig ausgestattet. Besonders betonen möchte ich die Hilfe der Vermieter. Wir durften einen Shuttleservie in Anspruch nehmen und bekamen Tips, Hilfestellungen sodass unser Aufenthalt perfekt war! Wenn ich wieder komme nur in dieses Appartment! Wir waren 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder (16, 11 Jahre). Danke an Peter und Roberto!
Liebe Grüße aus Österreich
Hi, we were from 6th of June to 10th of June in London and spent our stay in this wonderful apartment. The apartment is perfect. It is perfectly located in the center of London and offers very good public transport opportunities directly in front of the door. The neighborhood is very interesting we were never afraid and had English breakfast and some eating around there. Even in the night we felt safe. On the canal in front of the apartment house there are houseboats and you can immerse yourself in the English life off the beaten track. The apartment comes fully and tastefully equiped. I would particularly like to emphasize the help of the landlord. We were allowed to take a Shuttle Servie in claim and received tips, help so that our stay was perfect! When I come back then I will stay only in this apartment!
We were 2 adults and 2 children (16, 11 years). Thanks to Peter and Roberto – it was wonderful to be your guests!
