About Paul

Originally from Southern Europe, and now living in London, I strive to make my properties the most accommodating in this city. My team is international and super dedicated and demanding professionals from housekeeping to maintenance and guest managers.

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!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Located amongst many many restaurants and pubs. Easy access to both Angel and Islington stations. Very small bedroom and space for suitcases but I guess that's London .

Comfortable, trendy apartment. Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing stay at Paulo's apartment. I was met on arrival and everything went very smoothly. The apartment is really comfortable, with a brand new kitchen and furniture. The entire place is spotless from top to bottom. Paulo has provided a very detailed instructions manual for anything that I might have needed - Instructions for the appliances, contact information and directions to the nearby attractions. I had some computer work to do and the two wifi connections were very speedy.

The location is amazing - I was one step away from a bunch of great restaurants, shops, cafes and supermarkets.

Highly recommend this apartment to anybody who may be traveling through London and need a great, clean, comfortable apartment in the heart of trendy Islington.

Great Location really convenient

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is in a nice neighbourhood and very convenient to get around. This apartment is suitable for people with a small amount of luggage and capable to climb stairs. You have everything you need at the apartment including a washing machine which works quite well once you know how to use it.

The photos shown here aren't exactly what the room looks like with different pieces of furniture in the apartment. For my standards in Australia this apartment was very small for 3 people with it being more like a converted studio.

When we arrived there was a staff member waiting who was friendly and welcoming.

The only other thing was the processing of our deposit took more than 1 month to be returned and I was told this is due to processing issues. This is rather odd but the owner has since returned those funds. Overall, this stay is simple and cost effective but not suitable for more than 2 people.

Owner's Response: The apartment is presented exactly as in the description and pictures, moreover it comes with a floorplan and surface area detailed for clarity.I appreciate not everyone reads the description in detail, but we only have satisfied guests to date. We do offer bigger 2 bedroom units also to choose from for bigger groups, it's up to the guests desire and budget, and in the same building too. Incidentally on this reservation and review i must clarify: - The security deposit is refunded automatically within a week - that's the new system on Homeaway. Im not aware of this one taking one month, because you only checked out 2 weeks ago from writing this review, so no way you waited 1 month, sorry this is not fair and i don't understand the reason for your frustration but wish you well, but have to clarify for our future guests; - The apartment has stairs and is presented precisely like that, on a second floor, with stairs- i don't understand the surprise with this fact which is presented clearly, as most properties in Central London have stairs; moreover we reminded several times about the stairs before arrival- precisely to avoid anyone with knee injuries overlooking- we remind this several many times; - The guest was even offered an alternative apartment in the same area, bigger and with a massive garden, and offered the chance to go view it and decide to move for a FREE UPGRADE. This effort was not mentioned in the review, but i have to say. I only want happy satisfied guests, and even when i don't have to move to bigger apartment, i offer that possibility, to please and serve; We present the units with utmost precision to avoid these situations, and recommend our guests to read and see the pictures and floorplans to best plan their holidays. I felt a bit of a constant complaining effort from the beginning and did everything i could to please as did my team. I appreciate that moving house or relocating with a lot of luggage is probably not ideal in a junior 1 bedroom apartment for longer stays and will certainly advise future guests to take bigger apartments. We seek to improve our information and service with every feedback. I wish you had accepted my offer to move for FREE to a bigger apartment, when i came forward, there was no need for this. The location here is indeed excelent as the apartment is perfectly and carefully decorated. I'm sorry its' much smaller than what big family home you might have back home but it's a fine unit.

Awesome flat in Islington near Angel

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well localized, between two tube stations. The kitchen has all appliances you could need and everything was clean when we arrived. Paulo is always available and brought us what we needed, for example, the cellfone device was not ok, so he change it for us. We definitly recomend this apartment to whom like to cook at home. Pera restaurant just downstairs serves a very good mediterranean meal and the pizza next door is also good and fast.

Very good, quite small

  • 4 of 5

Good position, very clean. Too small for more than 3 person, perfect for 2. There's no real way to reach the little garden...but a window.

Owner's Response: The apartment size is presented on the advert even with a floor plan for our guests to choose Big or small depends where you come from. Our Japanese guests find the apartment very big and some guests who live in big houses in the country may find it cosy. It's cosy but ideal for short stays indeed. The terrace garden is accessible via a French door as we call them in England, it's not a window and I'm sure this comment is unintended or English language barrier. We do present pictures and description of everything so our guests can choose well and I'm glad to also offer bigger apartments even in the same building including a 2 bedroom duplex for bigger groups or family. Thank you for the 4 star review.

The Grade-II listed church in Compton Street, Islington, beat competition from Brixton Academy and the Royal Albert Hall to take the top spot in Time Out magazine’s poll.
