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.

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.

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!

Amazing stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

Our best decision was to rent Peter's apartment for our 10-day holidays in London, UK. Peter was nice and helpful from the moment we have chosen the apartment to the end. The apartment was very beautiful, clean, and perfect for our family. It had absolutely everything we needed! We really loved the view to the canal! Getting to central London couldn't be easier: the bus stop is really a 1 minute walk from the building, and it brings to all of the top attractions. Without any doubt, Peter's apartment will be our home in London. Thank you for this wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Guys, thank you for your kind words and delighted that you and your family enjoyed your 10 day stay at the apartment. The view of the canal is quite special and a great place to hang out of an afternoon/evening - seeing the canal boats and the ducks go by. Very much look forward to welcoming you guys back in the near future. Thanks for being great guests.

My husband & I stayed in this flat for 2 weeks while visiting our daughter & it was perfect in so many ways! The location is great for either the buses or walking to nearby restaurants! The flat is extremely clean & well maintained! The owners take pride in the property & it shows. Peter answered all of our questions before our arrival & Roberto's transfers both to & from the airport were a great way to see the city! What a warm welcome to London!! The waterway that the flat overlooks provides a lot of things to watch-from houseboats to kayakers to a family of ducks-there is always something to admire while you enjoy the relaxation of sitting out on the patio! It was our favorite place to spend our mornings while having some coffee & again in the evening with a bottle of wine!! The building also has the co-op store on the ground floor which was very convenient on more than one occasion. They have just about anything you need! Having a home to come back to after a full day of sightseeing was the best part of our trip! Being able to cook some meals, go to a bedroom to read, sit outside, or watch a movie allowed us to "unwind" each day! Having the security in the lobby to greet us was an additional sense of security as well! I do not have anything negative to say about this property or the owners-they helped us enjoy a trip of a lifetime!!

Wonderful spot to call home while you explore

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot to call home for our holiday. Conveniently located, easy to access transit and with all of the amenities. Beautiful views and walks along the canal. Great restaurants within walking distance. The flat is well appointed, scrupulously clean and Peter shared a massive amount of details to make sure we could find our way around easily. Highly recommended.
