    We absolutely loved our stay at Marcus and Emily's place. From the moment we arrived, Marcus has been a really caring and attentive host, providing us a lot of information and made sure we were okay. He even offered us a ride to the airport since our flight was very early in the morning. Me and my boyfriend would totally recommend staying with them. Again Marcus and Emily, thank you for being great hosts.

    We have had a really nice time at Marcus's flat. Small, cozy room for 2 people. Most of the time we had the flat only for us. 12 minutes to the Leytonstone underground station connected directly with the city centre. THANKS Marcus!

    I would highly recommend staying with Marcus & Emily, both are very welcoming and make you feel very much at home. Lovely, comfortable and clean flat with everything you could ask for whilst working away from home. Good communication with both hosts which is always helpful. Nice quiet neighbourhood and easy accessible transport links. If needed I would definitely stay again. Thanks a lot Marcus and Emily :-)

    My plane was 2 hours late arriving at Heathrow, the Tube ran very erratically - I arrived at Marcus's place at midnight (instead of 10:00 PM as expected), fearing he'd give up on me and go to sleep. But no, he waited - he was very gracious and welcoming, the room was pristine, comfy and quiet... Everything was great. Very happy with the homestay concept. Will use again when I need it. Cheers.

    Loved Emily and Marcus. Young couple was very friendly and helpful. When the bedroom got hot, they rustled up a fan. When we needed space for a laptop, they brought us a table. Breakfast is whenever you like, and you're welcome to use the kitchen to cook meals. The only negative was that the room is on the ground floor, and we weren't comfortable leaving the window open all night. This would be an ideal situation for a single guy who's traveling and wants access to the central train / tube line. Liked the location, and there's a fabulous Turkish restaurant called Olive on the other side of the train station that'd delicious and reasonably priced.

    My hosts were amazing and caring people that made my solo trip across Europe one to remember. They were so interactive with me, guided me to wherever I wanted to go, and had a lovely home to make my stay beyond what I expected. Whenever I return to London again one day, I hope I can visit them again. Such a beautiful and outgoing young couple that I wish nothing but success and love! Thank you!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
