About Me
Hi, I'm Meg & we (my family: husband Daz, 3yr old twin girls Romy & Bess + our medium sized dog, a lurcher called Jackson) live in a typical East London Victorian terraced townhouse in the very 'happening' borough of Hackney. We offer a perfect short to mid term rental for academics & their families visiting/working in London with great transport links to the central universities & libraries of around 30 mins. The space we are hosting is a 1-2 bed self contained apartment on the ground floor of our 3 storey house with its own entrance & access to a patio garden (see full description) & we live upstairs - you will find it very private & tranquil but do note there is the general 'burble' of family life from our quarters, as you would get in any apartment living and I want to be transparent about that. Our apartment offers all the home comforts for travellers in need of a warm & inviting place to relax while exploring or working in our wonderful city. We have lived here for over 15 years and can recommend many things locally & city wide if you need any help planning your itinerary. Daz & I travelled as much as we could in the years before we had our babies... and hope to do lots more as a family once we become a bit more mobile again. My parents were both academics (now retired) and I grew up in a home where we often let rooms to students & visiting lecturers. I trained & worked as an actress but am now a full time mamma, whilst managing our letting & trying to continue with renovating the rest of the house. Daz runs his own event production company specialising in outdoor music & art events. We are a very happy household who love meeting new people - do please come visit & stay with us!
