Hello!

I'm Elizabeth, I live with my husband in a residential area within the Olympic host city of Stratford.

Our home is minutes away from Stratford Underground Station and Maryland and Forest Gate rail station. Our local bus stops offer buses directly into central London.

We are about 30 minutes away from Oxford Street by tube (underground train).

East London University Stratford Campus is just down the road from our home, about 2 minutes away, so we are the perfect accommodation for students!

Westfield Shopping Centre with its array of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and bowling and much more is within easy reach from our home. We have local Tesco and Sainsbury's just minutes away also.

From our home, it's 15 minutes walk away from either Forest Gate Library or Stratford Library.

There is a large leisure centre opposite our house that includes swimming pools, cafes, play areas and many new gym facilities. Atherton Leisure Center welcomes all people and all ages to them.

Parking is available but you will need to pay for a parking permit from 8.30am to 6.30 pm from Monday to Friday. Saturday and Sunday parking is free.

****
Payment Method: Please note that we require our guests to pay 50% of the booking total to us in advance of the booking to hold your room (after the 15% booking fee is paid to Homestay.com)

The remaining 50% will be paid upon check-in.

    The experience that my sister and I spent with Elizabeth and Thomas was just incredible. It was like a second family. They were always there, asking us if everything was okay. They are trustworthy people and I will not hesitate to come back for a new experience in London with them. They are wonderful people and incredibly kind and so is their whole family. I would like to thank them once again for being so kind to us. You can go to their house without fear !

    I stayed with Elizabeth and Thomas for a week and they made me feel completely at home. The room was always toasty, their family were so lovely, and they made sure to chat with me when I got home from work. I would definitely recommend their home as a place to stay if you find yourself in London.

    My wife and our two sons 12 and 10 of age spent a week at this home. Connections to the city center were great and services were close by. Communication with the hosts was smooth our stay was pleasant. I would recommend it for families!

    Logement bien situé dans l’East End, accès rapide à la station de Stratford d’où partent plusieurs lignes de métro (centre de Londres à 20mn) et qui est au pied du parc olympique et d’un très grand centre commercial (westfield).
    Elizabeth et Thomas sont accueillants et sympathiques, le logement est d’un confort et d’une propreté correctes.
    We had a very nice and pleasant stay here.

    It has been to stay in your house during our visit to London. A very kindly and friendly family. Very well comunicated with the centre of London. The room perfect and very clean. My daugther and I have been very good. If I visit London another time I will choose this room again. I only have good words for this family. Thank you very much for all. NAIKE

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
