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.

    Very welcoming family, lies in the lively Stratford area, their home is close to Stratford centre with cosmopolitan shops and public transport connections to all London.
    They tried to make me enjoy my stay. I hope I can visit them again in the future.

    It was undoubtedly a great stay. They are very nice and friendly people. There is literally nothing to complain about. Unfortunately, Elizabeth was not present at my check out, but I sent her a message via her daughter that I will stay in their house in the future again for sure once I come back to London if I find a free room there..

    Thank you a lot and best wishes,

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
