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!

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.

    Very comfortable and welcoming. Peaceful and homely atmosphere. Very big and silent bedroom. The next time I come to London, I will definitely come back to them.

    Mia figlia Matilde e la sua amica Chiara, entrambe di 17 anni, hanno trascorso 6 notti con questa splendida famiglia. Sono tornate felicissime in quanto sono accolte con gentilezza e hanno soggiornato nel migliore dei modi. La posizione della casa è ottimale e comoda ai mezzi. Elisabeth è sempre stata disponibile sia prima che durante il soggiorno. Ritorneremo non appena possibile!! Grazie infinite!!!

    Adorable famille, chez qui nous avons passé un super séjour en famille. Elisabeth et Thomas sont accueillants et prêts à vous conseiller et à vous rendre service. Elisabeth est, de plus, une très bonne cuisinière et vous concocte de bons repas équilibrés pour le repas du soir. A refaire !

    Io e mio figlio abbiamo trascorso 5 giorni ospiti da Elizabeth, ringraziamo per l'accoglienza, l'ospitalità e la cordialità. Un grazie particolare alla figlia Aleen con cui abbiamo avuto il piacere di trascorrere qualche giorno insieme. Davvero una bella esperienza.

    The stay was perfect and the family is really friendly. We enjoy our time in Stratford and we come again. We talk a lot and we can improve our English there. In the house is a lovely and familiar atmosphere every time.

    Elizabeth and all her family were very welcoming and friendly and the house was very clean. Beds were very comfortable, towels provided. It was a very authentic experience of living in East London and we felt very welcome.

    Elisabeth et sa famille sont des personnes adorables. Nous avons été très bien reçu. Géographiquement, à 15 minutes à pied (ou 5 min en bus) du métro et d'un grand centre commercial. C'est donc plutôt pratique.
    S'il fallait donné un point à améliorer, le logement et les installations sont un peu vétustes mais finalement cela fait également le charme de cette expérience.

    Pour conclure, nous nous sommes régalés.

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.

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.

When can I share my contact details?
