Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our homely 1 bed flat is situated on the 18th floor of a new build with day time concierge and security system, in East London. Neighbouring with Canary Wharf, a well-developed financial district in London, our home has access to London’s stunning skyline and 24/7 view of docks and skyscrapers, conveniently.


The development is so well located that it takes literally 30seconds from our door to the nearest public transportation - a DLR station (London’s railway system) & a bus stop that can take you to pretty much everywhere in London.

Luckily enough, we have lift access, bike storage and concierge on site - not so common in London.

We have a Vietnamese cafe and a bubble tea shop right at our doorstep. How cool?! Besides, there are also a barbershop, a nail salon and more. Plus, they are all closer than the bus and train stations mentioned above!

We are currently seeking a similar home in or near Paris where my boyfriend and I can celebrate Christmas this year, together with his family. If you have something suitable to offer, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

*We’ll be away in August for 9 days too so the swap doesn’t have to be simultaneous*

I’m working towards taking pictures of the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Please message for more photos or even a video tour if interested.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

"Although known as a business and finance area, Canary Wharf is one of those places where you can get that dreamy apartment with one of the most perfect views ever. While it may not be a popular tourist attraction, it’s definitely a place to come when you’re in need of some extraordinary sights of the city. And, of course, being surrounded by water doesn’t hurt either." - SPOTAHOME

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Buzzy restaurants:
Plenty of options here, ranging from French and Italian to Sushi and Chinese (we have a large Chinese/Asian community here so it can only be a heaven for foodies!)

Retail therapy:
Canary Wharf has a ton of shopping centres - it makes us confused or lost sometimes as they all are insanely huge.

Bit of culture:
Want to learn about the capital’s story from the beginning to modern times? This is the place to be! Although Canary Wharf might feature modern buildings, you can definitely get an entire history lesson of London from the Museum of London Docklands.

Walks in the park:
You'll discover a variety of monuments and parks and it’s definitely an area where you can take a relaxing walk on the walkway and admire the stunning views of the River Thames.

Spot of exercise:
Literally everywhere! Take a morning jog by the dock - it's super common here. Seagulls, water, boats,... it's a perfect place to relax!

Day tripping:
The Mudchute park is known as London’s city farm and a place where you can visit over 100 animals which include British rare breeds. The 32 acre site is open to the public and it’s been around since 1977!
