A lot of positive vibes and happiness. Staying with Marcus and Emily was not only a great option for housing, but also a lot of support from them, care, understanding and overall they are a great young couple. I will miss by Harrison. Don't worry, Harrison is very friendly and will always be happy to see you :)
Since I stayed there for two months, for me it was an unusual, but fortunately a positive experience. Anyone traveling for a short or long term - I ADVICE THEM.
Thank you very much for everything, I will recommend you to all!
Marcus and Emily are a really nice couple who helped us with everything we needed and made us feel like at home. You wouldn't notice they are in the house and the neighbourhood is very quiet, so you won't have troubles with noise at all when sleeping. It is all clean and feels cosy. The only thing to bear in mind specially if you have back problems like me, is the mattress, as it's too soft and not great quality. Maybe something to improve for the owners in the near future, but the rest is great!
Thanks for your hospitality :)
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!
The best ! They are an amazing couple, their cat is the cutest thing in this world, I definitely recommend.
I will come back ❤️
It was a great time by Marcus and Emily! Harrison is a lovely and cute cat. Thanks for hosting us!

Me and my friend had a great time staying with Emily, Marcus and their lovely cat! They were absolutely charming and helpful!
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.
