Located in the fashionable Hoxton/Shoreditch area, this cool-style London apartment makes a perfect spot to explore London.

It has 2 excellent large and clean double bedrooms, a modern bathroom with bath and power shower and a superb modern fully fitted kitchen and an incredible private outdoor balcony looking directly onto the peaceful canal.

Old Street underground tube station is a short walk away. Red double decker buses to St Paul’s Cathedral, Covent Garden (shopping and theatre), Waterloo (London Eye), Westminster (Houses of Parliament) and London Bridge (Tower of London & Tower Bridge) all depart 200 yards from the apartment building entrance every 3-4 minutes. Hailing a London black cab outside the building is just as easy.

The Master Bedroom and the Guest Bedroom both feature a truly superb and comfortable double bed with an excellent memory foam mattress and the finest of crisp clean linens ensuring a wonderful nights sleep. All rooms in the apartment have commanding views of the canal. The master bedroom also has the added flexibility of having an inflatable single mattress made up for a young adult if required, for a small additional fee.

The Bathroom has been designed with beautiful clean limestone tiles on the floor and around the bath/shower area.

Off the sitting room is a wonderful sheltered and protected outdoor balcony with comfortable and relaxing outdoor furniture directly overlooking the Regent’s Canal.

Within the building complex there is a Health & Fitness centre, which for a small fee offers a fully equipped managed gym complete with a full range of beauty/spa treatments.

About Peter Win

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.

Why Peter Win chose London

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.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable apartment. We visited with three children for 8 nights and managed delightfully. The grocery downstairs was so convenient and the kids played in the nearby parks after sightseeing. The access to downtown London was simple on the buses and trains. The balcony overlooking the canal was a great place to relax and to watch people and animals go by.

Overall, a great place to stay.

Cool, clean and trendy

  • 5 of 5

The flat was left in pristine condition for us. It was exceptionally clean and very well appointed. The owner had done everything possible to make our stay better, including bringing us a second fan in uncharacteristicly hot London weather. Peter was great with questions as well and giving advice for getting around.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is immaculate and well stocked. E-mails get answered immediately. There is a grocery store in the same building. Balcony is lovely overlooking the canal. We watched some swans. An FYI for Americans is that the dryer is a clothes drying rack which worked well with the fan blowing on the laundry. I would definitely go back to this great place in London.

Great flat in London!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in this very lovely flat in Shoreditch/Hackney. All was as advertised, and the owner was very flexible when we had a death in the family and need to slightly alter our dates (the airlines? not quite so flexible). He answered all questions promptly, and provided a super place to land for a week in London.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this flat and it's surroundings. The flat is very well decorated and extremely clean and modern. The outdoor balcony overlooks the canal. I'm a people watcher, so having bikers, joggers, dog walkers and barges (boats) sail by was fabulous for me. The beds and the linen were first class. For me this was a biggie as I'm a bed snob! Having the park across the street was great for me to take my grandson so he could let off steam, and it was a bonus having a key-entry front door with a porter adds to the security factor. I will definitely keep this flat on my list for my next visit to London. One thing to remember though - if you have a car be sure to ask Peter (the owner) for a parking voucher, otherwise you are out of luck for places to park. All in all I throughly enjoyed my time there.

Wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a lovely 4-night stay in Peter's flat. The flat itself was great---comfortable, clean and well-decorated. Peter has thought of all the details to make your stay convenient and feel like home. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, the bathroom had shampoo and soap and plenty of towels were provided. The wifi worked great our entire stay and the view of the canal and the balcony are divine. The mini supermarket located below is super convenient. We also thoroughly appreciated the Oyster cards that were left for us so we could jump right into touring! The location was great if you wanted to stay a little bit out of downtown and get more of a local experience and the bus stop right outside was super easy to use to head in to town. Our family loved our time in London and can't wait to come back. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
