Being an Aussie living in London for 6 years now I have a fairly good understanding of what travellers like and what makes your experience that much more unique. My mums Spanish and my dads Scottish so naturally I know good food and partying, and can recommend well in both of these areas. E1 is coolest postcode in London right now as you're walking distance to Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Spitalfields Markets, Borough Markets, Broadway Markets, Tower Bridge, Tower of London + the Hop On Hop Off bus tour routes.
Aldgate East tube - 5 min walk.
Scenic double decker buses into the West End - 3 min walk.
Supermarket - 100m.
Fitness First and Virgin Active gyms are local.
Privacy is unique to Mears Close as it's situated in the centre of the block, fully gated off from the hustle bustle of the tasty restaurants and grills. The basement level has the master bedroom (19sm) with a super king size bed + a single bed, air conditioning, en suite, laundry + entrance to the courtyard. Street level has the main entrance, second bedroom (14sm) with a king size bed, bathroom/shower + kitchen so it´s suitable for elderly and less mobile people. The top level has the lounge/dining room and terrace, which overlook Mears Close and the 3 shared car spaces which are always empty.
The house has a Danish fit out, and housekeepers give you the 5 star treatment preparing everything before you arrive. There is a travel cot with bed linen if you need it, and there are hair dryers, fresh towels, toiletries, washing powder etc. to save you organising that yourself. There is a washing machine/dryer, and if it suits you you're welcome to use my basement en suite if it helps you at shower time. You will always have exclusive use of the lounge room and well equipped kitchen, and you are welcome to use anything on the shelves, dry store and pantry.
I will consider 2 night stays if there is an exact 2 day gap between existing bookings or you would like to use the whole house.
WiFi and the full Sky sports package is free.
Pre book a minicab and you can bargain a pre arranged price (much cheaper than getting a black cab at the airport). Once you secure the booking I'll be able to email you 3 minicab numbers to call & find the best price.
Heathrow - Minicab £40 - £48 or tube to Aldgate East £4/person.
Stansted - Minicab £47 - £55 or Stansted Express 'bus' £8/person (Whitechapel stop + 6 minute walk).
Gatwick - Minicab £55 or Gatwick Express to Victoria + tube to Aldgate East £22/person.

*Stansted bus to Micks Mansion is easy but the return route is different so best to get a minicab to Stansted airport.
For groups of 2 or more its £31 - £58 / person / night.
