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!

Cheers from London,


Paul purchased this apartment in 2008

Guestbook comments from the manager

Location, location, location! We loved this area of London. It had everything. There are small markets to grocery stores, restaurants, shops, pubs, you name it, it was there. The flat is only 8 minute walk to the Highbury and Islington Underground and Overground lines. Very convenient to get anywhere in London or England. This was our hub. Even when we returned late at night there was always something open to get food or supplies. The bedroom is quiet and easy to sleep. The new sofa converts into a very comfortable bed as well. My son was the first to try it and loved it! The satelite TV gets a lot of channels so when you just want to chill in the apartment, it is a good pasttime. The kitchen is well stocked with the essentials for cooking; we primarily made breakfast. There are a number of local, excellent pastry shops which we patronized to supplement our breakfast. For us though, it all came down to the location. We also loved being within walking distance of Emirates Stadium, as we took in an Arsenal match. We highly recommend this flat and Paul was an excellent host.Chuck S

Had an Amazing London Experience

  • 5 of 5

Paulo is the best host you could ask for when renting a flat for a vacation. Great communicator and helped on the front end, during and even helped us with advice that saved us money after we departed for Ireland.

The rental is located in a great area of Islington with amenities galore in walking distance; pubs, restaurants of every kind and markets right next door!

Everything worked as promised; speedy Wi-Fi, full kitchen, bathroom. Everything was clean and comfortable. We slept great and the beds were super cozy.

We felt safe and secure and just really don't have anything bad to say. There are quite a few stairs to navigate if you have elderly or infants.

We went to a music festival about a quarter mile away and walked there. There was so much to see and do we only took the tube once, but there are two stations each about a quarter mile away.

Paulo helped us with transport to and from the airport, gave us restaurant recommendations and was just a pleasure to work with. If we come again, we will for sure stay at his rental. 5 stars!

Thanks Paulo! Cheers!

Well situated apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dear Paul

We spent a very nice week in your apartment. It was well furnished and very clean. The bus station and the underground are not far away.

The beds are very confortable.

The only problem was the water pressure in the badroom that was not strong enough. Otherwise it was perfect. We would come back.

Thanks a lot.

Lovely and spacious apartment in the best location

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better experience during my first time in London! Paulo is pro, very courteous and the communication with him was very efficient. He was accommodating to our needs and wanted to ensure we enjoyed our stay at his apartment. The apartment is very spacious and extremely well maintained. The location is PERFECT - close to anything you need! The bus stops and train station are very close and getting to anywhere in London a piece of cake. The back terrace is lovely and quaint. The WIFI is speedy and the beds are really comfortable. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anybody :) Lovely stay.

Very spacious & clean

  • 5 of 5

I was recommended this apartment by a girlfriend of mine who has stayed there a few times and I was not disappointed... What a great apartment!

Two bedrooms, two stories - VERY comfortable for a short or long-term stay. Each room is clean with all new furnishings. The beds in both bedrooms are really comfortable. The two stories give this apartment a lot of breathing room for each guest. The living room is large as well, well-decorated and a great couch to lounge on.

Wifi is speedy and efficient. The kitchen is fully furnished and is easy to cook in. There is also an Nespresso machine - Perfect for those cold London mornings.
