About John

Born in Portugal, lived in Chile, Indonesia and now living in London, I work to make my property the most accommodating in this city.

As a seasoned traveler myself, I understand the importance of the comfort of home as well as an adventurous experience in a new city. I combine both of these to ensure a positive, memorable experience for all of my guests.

I enjoy traveling, great food, and vibrant atmospheres and want to share that with others through our property locations. These locations are all minutes away from my friends and my favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping areas. We really love it here and know you will too!

I look forward to welcoming you to my city!

John purchased this apartment in 2012

Why John chose Hackney

The apartment is carefully decorated, very comfortable, sleeps 6-7 persons, spacious living room with a meal sitting area, free WIFl, cable TV, central heating. We provide clean towels and bedding and all cooking utensils you’ll need to cook at home.

The apartment is on a top floor penthouse on the 3rd floor with great views over London.

Convenient but Average

  • 3 of 5

I will keep it simple and give the readers of this review the pros and cons.

Pros:

1) Very conveniently located - bus stops are literally steps away from the front door. The nearest Tube station (Old Street) is no more than a 10-minute walk. There is an Asian supermarket right next door and a Tesco a 5-minute walk away.

2) Very spacious bedrooms with comfortable double beds. Having travelled in Europe, we know this was a bonus.

3) Fairly well equipped kitchen. Most utensils had to be cleaned before using, but the renter could hardly be faulted for the previous tenants' not cleaning the utensils properly, so no big deal there.

4) Reasonably quiet given the area. Being on Hackney Road, so close to the main drag of Shoreditch High Street, we slept reasonably well at night.

5) The price was very reasonable.

Cons:

1) The smell of marijuana that wafted up from the floors below and engulfed the flat every night. We understood that this was by no means the fault of the renter, but nonetheless offensive.

2) The overall cleanliness of the flat. This was not unbearable, but can be improved upon, in our opinion.

3) Communication with renter. We had told the renter we would arrive between 16:00 and 17:00. We were left waiting outside and not let in until after 17:00, even after we had rung him 30 minutes before our actual arrival and were told we would be.

4) The lack of a lift. The renter only advertised that the flat was 'wheelchair inaccessible' and not the fact that it was on the 3rd floor with no lift.

5) The 'bathroom' is very small, but that's Europe!

All in all, I would not recommend this flat for families with children or the elderly. I highly recommend this flat for thirty or forty (or younger) somethings who are tired of hostels but cannot afford to stay in a hotel in London.

Lovely Flat/Fun Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a month in January and really loved the apartment. There are multiple bus lines that I mastered that are right in front of the building and the Liverpool Street and Old Street Stations weren't too far a walk (about 10-15 mins). There was a lot to do and explore in this neighborhood along with fun bars, restaurants, and shopping. The flat itself was very cozy, had great lighting, and the master bedroom was very spacious. I thought John and his team were very accommodating and accessible in the event I had questions. It was a wonderful overall experience.

the East End rocks

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a pleasant apartment and welcome. The apartment is located in great part of town with fantastic food and bar options. Highlights are definitely the fantastic weekend markets at the Broadway Markets and Bricklane Markets. The Old Street tube is only 10 minutes walk, which is always bustling. The apartment was as described, though while located on the top floor the building stairwell is narrow (navigating suitcases is tricky), and little worse for wear (the stairwell and foyer), though I think it adds to the East End experience. The two beds are super super comfy. Given its on a main street, the perennial ambulance and police sirens wail, so if you are a light sleeper, ear plugs are recommended. Personally, I was comfortable with the noise -- hey its London after all! The bathroom is a little tight, as is the shower - but its a proper shower with electric-on-demand hot water!! Overall great place to stay, the East End rocks, and to get into West End, takes about 25 minutes from your doorstep. Oh and downstairs is a great coffee shop run by a cool Italian guy.

The apartment is spacious and with super cool design and features. Loved the film collection and large TV. We will definitely come back on our next business trip to Shoreditch.

Comfortable and affordable.

  • 5 of 5

Great location to see all the sights from. The neighborhood looks a bit rough but I found folks very friendly and the apartment itself is quiet nice and nicely appointed. The wifi and cable worked well and the host provided great instructions on how to operate everything. There are a couple of good grocery options and one Asian market immediately adjacent that had many tasty things and a Tesco just a bit farther down for everything else. The laundry in the apartment is fine but there is a laundry just a few short blocks walk if you, like us, had a larger load to do. They also offer a service and I had weeks worth of laundry done, dried and folded for a family of 4 for 16 pounds. Transportation is easy with two stops just outside the door and a couple of tube options Old Street and Liverpool just a bit farther walk or short bus ride away. Enjoy!!

The apartment is located in one of the most popular areas in London with the vibrant Shoreditch high street on the doorstep, which has some of the most stunning restaurants, bars, PUBs, coffee shops, cinemas, theatres, street markets and historical buildings and churches.

You will also find supermarkets, designer shops, cloth and shoe shops. Here you can feel how is to live like a real Londoner. We are also very close from the touristic West End with excellent transport links.
