About the Area
My house is situated on the West side of London, and is conveniently situated in Queens Park. The local station is a 1 minute walk from the front door, and the bus stop is directly opposite the house with a choice of four routes. It is in a shopping parade, and therefore convenient for quick access of provisions, restaurants and take aways!

I felt like home staying with Stephen!
Nice English gentlemen!
It was the first time for me using Homestay app, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
Stephen is such an English gentleman, I really felt at ease and comfortable, it really gives you the idea of home away from home.
The house is clean and warm, the bedroom spacious and the bed very comfortable. The location is very convenient and it’s just 3 minutes away from Queen’s Park station.
I highly recommend the stay, especially if you appreciate the human contact with a local.
O Stephen, a musica, a localização. Tudo isso faz essa casa ser maravilhosa. Vá com o coração aberto, aproveite seus dias em Londres com tudo a um passo de você. O ambiente é calmo, o homestay é amigavel e, se ele não puder te ajudar, por sua elegancia, jamais te causará algum incomodo. Obrigada Stephen, fui muito feliz hospedada em sua casa.
Stephen is very nice and friendly. The room has plenty of space and bed is comfortable. Couldn’t ask for more!
The house is very ready for renovation and Stephen is getting that done this autumn. His warm personality and hospitality made up for that. I can honestly say it was my best homestay ever! We had so much fun sitting in the garden every evening sharing our life stores. Also very well located to get to the London sites and a nice neighbourhood. Thanks Stephen! You are one of the reasons I prefer homestay instead of an anonymous hotel when I am travelling solo; a real home to get back to each evening. It has been fantastic!!!
Very helpful, communication excellent, thank you Stephen.
Stephen was very kind and welcoming. I had a wonderful time staying there- a lot of space, too. Was easy to get around London with the tube a 2 minute walk from the front door. Stephen was always keen to chat and help with any concerns I had as a solo traveller. I highly recommend staying with him and will be staying there next time!
Will definitely try to stay here again next time I’m in London. It’s been less than two weeks since my stay and I’m already missing it and wanting to return. Stephen is a great bloke, the bed is large and comfortable, and the house is conveniently situated
Very neat and hygienic bedroom and bathroom.Very cooperative host with flexible check out time.
I really enjoyed my stay at Stephen's house! Stephen is an excellent host, always ready to help and as we are both fans of opera and classical music, we had lots to talk about. The room was quiet, clean, cozy and comfortable, the big bed with snow-white, professionally cleaned and ironed bedlinen, so I had a good night sleep. There is even a little private kitchen to use for the guest! I think that especially fans of opera and classical music will appreciate the stay at Stephen's. They can even have the music in the loudspeakers in the big bathroom! The underground station Queen's Park is less than 2 minutes walk and there is a bus stop of many bus lines just in front of the door.
