The space

Welcome to my spacious split level home with a garden, 2 minutes walk from Regents Canal! I am delighted to share my space with fellow Air BnB travellers whilst I am away for work or holiday.

My home is both a place of inspiration and also my retreat from my hectic life working in the media industry. I work long hours often away from home so really appreciate a comfortable place to come back to. I love having vibrant Dalston and Hoxton right on my doorstep as well as the peaceful Regents Canal.

Guest access

The apartment has two double bedrooms upstairs. Both beds have super comfy mattresses and there is plenty of space for clothes.

Downstairs is a large open plan living room and kitchen and like the bedrooms it has large south-facing windows so even on dull winter days my apartment feels light and sunny.

My living room has two comfortable sofas, one of which opens out into a large double sofa bed. It’s very comfortable for a few nights for two people and I can vouch for that myself.

The kitchen is also very spacious and perfect for someone who wants to cook up a storm- if you come at the right time of year you can use herbs and sometimes vegetables from my garden! I love the fact that it's open plan because I can chat to my guests whilst I cook and they relax at the table with a glass of wine or laze on the sofas. If my guests want to join in the cooking then my 4 meter long work top means there is plenty of space for us to cook together. And when we're done the dishwasher takes care of the washing up!

The bathroom has a great shower and also a tub for a relaxing soak at the end of a hectic day. There are toilets both upstairs and downstairs.

Last but by no means least is my garden which was designed by a friend of mine. I love eating breakfast here, sunbathing, reading and taking care of my plants and vegetables.

Double glazing and central heating throughout means the flat always feels warm and cosy despite the open plan style and large windows.

There is off-street parking right outside the apartment.

I appreciate how great it is to be able pack lightly, and want to make my guests feel at home, so will leave clean linen, towels and a hairdryer as well as tea and coffee. I hope you enjoy!

No parties or events, no pets, no overnight guests apart from those who are booked in, no smoking in the house (but smoking in the garden is fine). Please take your shoes off in the house- it keeps the London grime outside where it belongs :). Please send me a message before/ when you book with a little about you/ your group and confirming that you are happy with the house rules. Apologies but I can only take bookings from people who have uploaded their photo/government ID with Air BnB- it's a requirement of my insurance. Thank you and look forward to welcoming you into my home.

Laura's home was an ideal spot for our family group to gather for my niece's wedding. The location was perfect for us with good transport options and the canal and trendy cafés etc close by. The surrounds are fairly ordinary but the home itself is very well presented with lovely garden, comfortable sofa bed, dish washer and washing machine. Laura was very clear with her written instructions and our communication was excellent. I would return if making another trip to London. Thankyou.

Laura was a great host, the flat was lovely. Clean, well equipped, beautiful garden at the back to relax in. Would definitely recommend Laura's place.

Laura has been an excellent host and the place is very clean. The location is very nice (near the canal) and well connected. The only surprise we had was the close neighborhood with the council houses and appartments all around. Except that, our stay was wonderful!

Response from Laura:
Hi Ben, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. My listing says "My apartment is in a six-storey 1960's block on a quiet estate". Like the majority of London estates it is a mixture of council and privately owned homes.

I work in media and live in vibrant East London by the Regents Canal, interests include film, art, theatre, climbing, cycling all over London and swimming in the open air Lido near my house. I love being nearby so much culture whilst at the same time near to open spaces such as the Regents Canal, London Fields and Victoria Park- they are great places to relax after a busy day in the city! I've traveled a fair bit, alone and with friends and enjoy meeting people from other cultures.
