    Marcus and Emily are wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful clean home in a quiet, safe part of London, near public transport. If you love the excitement and cultural wonders of London, it's close enough. If you love a good nights' sleep and a comfortable place to rest you can have that too. I spent a few weeks with them and it was a very happy and stress free experience. I could not recommend it more highly. Thank you Marcus and Emily

    I was staying at Emily and Marcus for some days and New Year's eve they were so great and warm-hearted. They are definitely the best host family you can imagine. It is a beautiful flat and you have a really great room, it is very clean and comfortable :) They are very kind and they give you a great support.

    I am going there again for sure and i can recommend them to everyone. Please be very friendly and kind to them :)

    Thank you for this great holiday Emily and Marcus!!! :)

    Those two are friendly and helpful!
    The flat is clean and there's everything you'll need. I slept very quiet there.. no noise at night.
    I'd come again.

    Excellent. The flat is in a nice well kept building in a safe neighbourhood. Very easy to take transit (10 min walk / 5 min by bus / Essex Road South Busstop from Leytonstone). Marcus was very nice, friendly and welcoming, also the lovely cat. The room and bathroom are beautiful and clean, the bed is comfortable. Very nice, helpful, quiet couple. Highly recommended.

    My first cousin and I spend almost two weeks with Emily and Marcus. They are just amazing, I am so grateful that I met them and also for their hospitality and for their kindness. They give you the feeling to be in your own home and they helped us for everything. If I could spend much time with them I would but the time I spent with them were enough to see that I actually did the right choice when I choose them as a host family.

    If visiting London, you will surely find yourself happy staying with Marcus and Emily.
    A couple of two really friendly and generous people, who helped us a lot during our visit (for example in terms of breakfast, questions about the capital city or washing machines).
    Small and cosy apartment (not too small, everything alright!), from which it takes you about half an hour to the centre of London. Also a really well-behaved cat ^^.
    Thank you, M & E. All the best.

    Very welcoming hosts, we built a strong rapport immediately. Gave us a tour of their home and very open, allowing us to use their kitchen if we needed. They even have a guestbook with wifi details etc.

    Clean home, comfortable bedroom and cosy bed. 5 star service! Not like staying at a hotel or hostel, felt at home.

    Thanks Marcus and Emily, you have a great place, will hopefully come back

    We only stayed one night but we are really glad we chose to spent it at Marcus and Emily's home!
    They offered us everything we needed and gave us great tips!
    We had a lovely chat at the breakfast table and Emily even got her relatives dog so our dog could have a playmate!

    We have never stayed at such a friendly home before and it would definitely be our first pick if we chose to stay in London again!

    Thank you so much for the amazing experience!!
