About the Homestay
I live in a residential area within the Olympic host city of Stratford. I live with my husband.
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.
Westfield Shopping Centre with its array of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and bowling and much more is within easy reach from our home.
From our home it's a 15 minutes walk away from either Forest Gate Library or Stratford Library.
There is a large leisure center 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.
We hope you come, stay and enjoy yourself!

Elizabeth and her husband Thomas are a very warm and caring couple. When we arrived we explained we needed to get to the Olympic stadium. Thomas showed us a short-cut from the main road to their home and also took us in his car to the Westfield shopping centre. The room was clean and warm and the beds were comfy.
Elizabeth and her family were very friendly and inviting, her husband even dropped us off at the tube station in the morning. We would stay here again as it was quiet and comfortable.
It was my first experience with Homestay.com. and it was great! It was simple, but cozy family home in a unbelievably quiet street (it is not so far from the center of Stratford!). We slept so well! Guest rooms are on the 2nd floor apart from hostesses rooms. Elizabeth and her husband are very, very kind, hearty, friendly and helpful. As well as other family members we met (but they don't live there). The price is very good, because it is London transport zone 3, and there is a very good transport connection with London's center, Kew garden, Greenwich. Not very far from underground station (10-15 minutes walk), bus is near the house. The only thing I would suggest, call Elizabeth to meet You, because the house is very hard to find - especially if You arrive late. But if you get to know where is the right way, it is very easy to find. Stratford is a nice place, too. We were very pleased staying here.
Wonderful people, friendly. Nice comfortable rooms. Great stay. Thanks
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We stayed with Elizabeth and her husband for 5 days over New Year's Eve. We had a great time. They are a very lovely and welcoming couple who helped us whenever we had a question. The room was comfortable and warm. Breakfast had everything you need for starting in the day. There is a bus station very close to the accommodation and Stratford station within a 10 minute walk. We would really recommend this Homestay to everyone and definitely stay there another time if we are in London again.

It was a very pleasant stay with Elizabeth, Thomas and all his family. Thank you for the laughters, the discussions and this warm welcome. Take care of you. Odile
Staying at Elizabeth's house was very great experience. The atmosphere was amazing. Everyone was so nice ,lovely and very helpful. The breakfasts included everything what u need -tea,coffee, milk,bread,jam,cornflakes.
The house is just three stops from Stratford station so u can easily get the city center and the main attractions.
I really recommend u to stay at Elizabeth's house.
I had booked for three nights but I ended up staying only two because I had received a last-minute invitation to a concert in Clare College, Cambridge, on the Monday and was offered to stay the night in College rather than travel back to London late at night.
However, I very much enjoyed the time spent with Elisabeth and Thomas and their family. They are all truly lovely people, genuine and warm-hearted. The house is clean, the room I stayed in was nice and warm, and whatever your requests are, they are always willing to help (I have a bit of an unusual breakfast routine and that was no issue at all). The Stratford train and Underground station is a good 15 mins walk away but you can also take the bus very near to their house, and it is 4 stops to the station (and the buses run very regularly). All in all, it was a really pleasant experience staying with the Saibu family, and I would certainly consider booking with them again on a next trip to London.
Etudiant pendant 2 mois, j'ai adoré le temps passé à Londres chez Elizabeth. Une grande famille accueillante et chaleureuse.
