About the Homestay
We have a double room available at our house in South London. At the moment there are 3 of us living here. I'm a Baker, my partner Hugh is a Graphic Designer + Illustrator and our lovely Musician friend Amy is staying with us for the next couple of months. We are currently looking to house International Students on a long term or short term basis.
We would be more than happy to offer a safe, comfortable space for someone new to London who has come here to learn about our culture! We have a shared open plan living room and dining room and a small garden if you're a smoker or just crave some outdoor space!
We are hoping to find someone who we could trust and we are happy to socialise and help people settle in but understand the need for privacy at the same time.
For any students that speak French as their first language- my parents are fluent!
If you are interested in viewing please let us know as the room will be available from mid March.
We look forward to hearing from you!
