Had an amazing homestay with Angeline and Herchell a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and went out their way to make our stay so amazing. A lovely spacious house with a beautiful garden. They really are a lovely couple very friendly and take great care of their guests. If im working in Brentwood again i will definitely contact Angeline again many thanks for a great stay xx
Firstly - what a wonderful family! Angeline-Camilia, Herschel and their daughter are all so welcoming, friendly and helpful. I really cannot recommend them enough!
This was my first Homestay experience I so was a little nervous and unsure what to expect, and whag a pleasant surprise it was.
I was only there a few days but was made to feel right at home, such a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
I briefly met other guests who had already been there a few weeks; 2 brothers who were working and studying, and a female student. It was clear that they were all very happy indeed and had a great relationship with their hosts.
The whole house was clean and tidy. My room had a double bed, loads of wardrobe space, full length mirror, bedside cabinet and a fan.
I would more than happily stay there again. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Angeline and Harshell were great host and hostess.We -3 ladies from Azerbaijan enjoyed a lot staying in their house.They are very nice people, very friendly.We sang songs,danced together,shared our culture.They took care of me when i felt sick.I recommend all the people their homestay.Any time i come to London will stay only in their house,because ,it is not easy to find such kind of hospitable and kindhearted people. I love you very much,dear Angie and Harshell! It is a pity that i must rate only from 1 to 5 heart, I would like to rate them with 10 hearts
An excellent place to live, friendly and loving host who is always available to share a conversation with her guest. A well organised host with neat and exciting homestay feelings. Wish to book again in the near future if feasible. WEill urge fellows to book and will never regret their bookings at Angeline's place. Really pleased and enjoyed every bit of my 5 nights.
Our family had a wonderful stay with this kind family, who went out of their way to make us feel at home. The room was very tidy and the environment was quite relaxed. Highly recommend!
We chose this option for getting a base camp to crisscross the country and sharing the different cultures and languages. We met a nice family and we were warmly welcome by all the members.
We have spent 3 days there and we visited Oxford and Bath.
Camilia is such a nice lady, she is very thoughtful, patient. Camilia and her family are really nice and made me feel at home. I would highly recommend Camilia's place to anyone who is visiting London or looking to stay in that area.
