It wan my first experience of homestay.
Erkan's house is located in southern London, 30-40minuts from center of London by bus. Neighborhood is good and quiet. Rooms are pretty and enough space for us. British house is different from Japanese house. Especially bathroom is different so we had to have some attention about using bathroom but it's same thing other homestay in UK.
We stayed only 2nights so we couldn't have enough time with Erkan and Mandy unfortunately. They were kind and gave us many advice for trip.
I recommend Erkan's house if you want to explore London by bus because their house is very convenient for using bus.
We had a good stay with Erkan, his wife and his dog. The rooms were very clean and big enough. Erkan is very friendly and helpful.
Good food and nice home. Erkan and his wife were kind and very avaible to give information and help.
Un très bon séjour avec un couple d'hôte très agréable et très sympathique.
Erkan was a wonderful host who helped us in any way. We had a lot inspiring conversations and his English is easy understandable. The house is sited in a quiet area, just three minutes to walk to the next bus stop. The room and the house were tidy, clean and cosy. We just can recommend a stay with Erkan. Thanks a lot for that pleasant stay.

The picture says "good friends, good food, good stay ...". Everything is really true !
We've been staying with Mandy and Erkan for 5 days with my 2 kids (10 ans 12 years old). Our goal was to explore London by staying with a family to learn about their culture and speak English. We could not find a better place.
Erkan and Mandy were very welcoming and concerned about our well-being. We loved the nice english breakfast Erkan prepared "for a good start" each morning, and also the typical dinners Mandy cooked for us (as we requested in extra).
They also took some time to chat with us and it was a very pleasant experience. Their house is very clean and comfortable, the neighborhood is quiet. The house is located at 45 min from London Bridge by the overground or the train (including 15-20 min walking) and 1 hour from Victoria with a direct bus picking you up just down the street (n°185).
We'll keep great memories from there. I would definitely return there.
Mandy and Erkan are very kind people. We realy felt welcome. It was a pleasure to stay in their nice house. Everything was clean and comfotable. It was amazing to see the foxes. If we once come back to London we would stay with them again. Thank you for the wonderfull days we spend in London.
Erkan MOUTAFA est très sympathique serviable et attentionné, à 15 mn de la gare et 5 mn de l’arrêt de bus compter 30mn à 1 h de trajet pour être au cœur de Londres (victoria). à recommander
Accueil familial et sympathique, très bon esprit, maison et quartier agréable.
