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.

    Elizabeth and Thomas are really nice and it was great pleasure to be their guests. The accomodation was good but people were the most important. :)

    Very welcoming couple. They are very friendly. They offer you complementary coffee for the morning or anytime you want to have. Mini fridge in the room is very convenient. Room is clean and bed is very comfortable. I will definitely stay again.

    Elizabeth & Thomas are really friendly and helpful persons. I can only recommend this homestay for others. The house is just 2 mins walk from the bus stop and is about 15 mins walk from bus station which is near to the tube.

    Elisabeth et Thomas sont très gentils et attentionnés.
    Leur quartier est tranquille et il y a un arrêt de bus tout proche, bien pratique.
    Il y a également des commerces à proximité.

    I spent 4 months in London for my school. I didn't know where I was going to go during this stay. For me today fostering is the best solution and this family is amazing. They are very kind and helpful. I stayed in this family with my friend Amelia. You should also know that Elizabeth cooks extremely well. Just thank you for your welcome and see you soon :))

    Elizabeth and Thomas were very welcoming and they made me feel at ease in their home. They were lovely friendly people and I would stay again. The room they provided was nice and comfortable and their home was clean and tidy. I give them 5 stars as their accommodation was comfortable and they were helpful and caring. I'm glad I had the pleasure of meeting them both and I'm grateful they let me stay with them. I was there for 3 nights. Yasmin.

    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 !

    Garance and Nicholas are such lovely people. I will love to host them anytime.

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.
