Originally from Southern Europe, and now living in London, i strive to make my properties 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!

Why Paul chose Islington
Super location, great finishes and comfortable just like being at home.
What makes this apartment unique
Location close to attractions and transport, in a real London non-touristic trendy neighbourhood with all amenities from supermarket across the street to cafes, restaurants and even bars and pubs. The flat is very bright and airy, yet double glazed and with blackout blinds for comfort.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Whole experience was great. Paulo & partner were very friendly and responded quickly when we had questions. Excellent location. There were 4 of us (2 adults 2 kids) and the space was just right. Would definitely recommend
