Everything in the house and garden. The garden is shared with our basement flat and has a BBQ and plenty of room for an outdoor supper or just lying about with a drink. Only the studio at the end of the garden is off-limits. It's where we put our own stuff, but there's a hammock strung across it to swing in.

We had an excellent stay. Lovely airy house with a garden and French doors and balcony off the kitchen. Perfect for London's heat . Ten minutes leisurely walk into Hackney. Two minutes walk to Violet's for morning coffee and excellent scones and cakes. Must be cat lovers, which we were.

Susan and Rolands place is altogether wonderful. One of the most beautiful houses we've ever stayed in with beautiful wooden floors, gorgeous kitchen and a very neat little shared garden. The area is very peaceful and family-friendly but close to transports, restaurants and cafes. We would strongly recommend this to anyone travelling to London and we will be sure to come back. Top marks!

I spent 5 nights at Dudab and Roland's place in Dalston with my mother and 5 year old. Although the house is quite far from all the main tourist attractions, it was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of London proper. The house had everything that one would need for a stay including bedding, towels, and a multitude of kitchen aids for cooking. If you don't feel like cooking, there are many restaurants nearby including some great suggestions from Susan and Roland. Susan and Roland were really accessible to answer any questions that we might have had. There were no major problems with our stay. The only complaint that we had is that there is a new pub only two doors down and it is quite loud on many nights, especially on the weekends. The cats are lovely and quite friendly, although never bothersome. They are out a lot. Overall, a nice stay.

Response from Susan And Roland:
Thanks Joelle, great to hear you had a good stay. Just to clarify, said pub is a small wine bar and is only open on Friday and Saturday nights. The rest of the time it's a hair salon, although there's only room for one customer at a time because it's so tiny. Serves coffee through a hatch in the morning. Nice place.

We were a group of 7, so a extra mattress was added, and we stayed in Susan and Roland' house for 5 nights. The position is great, only 3 minutes walk to the overground and less than 10 minutes train to Liverpool Street station. The house was modern, with beautiful forniture and well equipped. Towels and sheet available were very clean. The house was clean even if the floor is made by old wood and cannot be well cleaned. The two cats might be a problem but they only stay on the ground floor (in the kitchen or in the dining room). The third floor is a loft and it does not have heating therefore is quite cold but an electronic heater is provided. Even if we have not seen Susan she was very fine and hospitable. We suggest the house and the host!
