    I spent one month at Audrey's house and since my first day there, I was very glad that I have choosen this really lovely and warm family. The room was cosy and comfortable - It gives you a nice view to the garden. The location of the house is very good - It takes only a few minutes to get to the local tube station in Leyton. Even some small shops, a gym and a pub are close to the accommodation. But you don't have to go out for dinner, because Audrey and especially her husband Piotrek cook very delicious meals. I really enjoyed the daily talks and discussions in the evening and if you have some luck, you will able to hear Audrey's daughter Rhiannon playing the piano (sounds great). If you need some useful tips they are glad to help you.

    I can really recommend this place.
    Hope to see them soon and we will stay in contact!

    I spent 6 weeks at Audrey's as part of an internship for my studies.
    The location of the house is perfect since it is 3 minute walk from Leyton tube station, near from many shops and from the Stratford Olympic parc and Westfield shopping centre.
    This family was very welcoming, kind and always aware of my well-being throughout the stay. I recommend them !
    I enjoyed the fact we discussed a lot together and shared our cultures.
    Hopefully we will stay in touch !

    Audrey and her family were all really lovely. The room was nice and warm and it was very easy and quick to get to Leyton underground. I enjoyed my time there and would definitely stay there again.

    I was 15 days at Audrey's home. I was studying an english course in London. It was an amazing experience! This family is absolutely lovely and they're an excelent hosts. I was living with Audrey, and also with Rhiannon, her lovely daughter.
    The firsts words that I could hear from them was "our home it's your home, so please, feel and do everything you need, like it were your home".
    I had every morning a very generous breakfast prepared at the table with bread, milk, croissants, pancakes, mermelade, etc.
    She gave me the house keys to come and go as wanted.
    We spent a lot of time talking, watching the TV, and I could learn a lot of things about the british culture. I also explained them some things about the spanish traditions, and I enjoyed teaching them some spanish words!
    They have a very beautiful house, clean, and tidy. The location is absolutelly perfect, it was a great choice!
    The house is located just only 3 minutes walking from the Underground (Leyton station) which takes you in 20 minutes to central London. As well as you can find also day and night buses who stops in the same street and can take you to London 24 hours a day (7/24).
    It was very useful to have a lot of big supermarkets and other kinds of shops near the house, as well as some supermarkets opened 24 hours a day.
    London is awsome!
    I was very sad to leave, it was difficult to don't cry :) because I only have good words for this family. Always in my heart :)

    Estuve 15 días en casa de Audrey. Fue una experiencia increíble! Esta familia es absolutamente encantadora, y unos grandes anfitriones. Viví con Audrey, y también con su simpática hija Rhiannon.
    Las primeras palabras que pude oír al llegar fueron "nuestra casa es tu casa, así que haz y siente lo mismo que si estuvieras en la tuya".
    Tuve cada mañana un generoso desayuno preparado en la mesa con pan, leche, cruasanes, tortitas, mermelada, etc.
    Me dieron las llaves de casa para que pudiera entrar o salir cuando me apeteciera.
    Pasamos largos ratos hablando, mirando la televisión, y pude aprender muchas cosas acerca de la cultura británica. Me encantó también poder enseñarles algunas palabras en español!
    Tienen una casa muy bonita, limpia, y ordenada. La localización es absolutamente perfecta, fue una gran elección!
    La vivienda se encuentra situada a tan solo 3 minutos andando del metro (estación de Leyton), el cual te lleva al centro de Londres en 20 minutos. También se encuentra una parada de bus en la misma calle que cuenta con autobuses las 24 horas del día para llevarte al centro de Londres.
    Fue muy útil disponer de grandes supermercados y otros tipos de tiendas cerca de la casa, así como algunos supermercados abiertos las 24 horas del día.
    Londres es una increíble!
    Fue muy triste tener que irme, y complicado evitar llorar :) porque solo tengo buenas palabras para esta familia. Siempre en mi corazón!

    I had a really pleasant stay at Audrey's place.
    I stayed there for two days, in a very neat and tidy room. The whole place is cosy and clean. The Hosts are very welcoming and helpful if you have any questions.
    The home is close to the Leyton tubestation and the High Street of Leyton, so everything from shops to transport is easily accessible.
    From my experience, I can definitely recommend this homestay.

    All I have to say about this family is good. I lived with them for eight months and all I have to say is thank you, thank you because I felt like one more in the family, you always carry in my heart and that is a friendship that never end. The lack of friends and family in Spain was more bearable to be with them. My room was my little corner in London, a very bright room with enough space. The house is beautiful but as I have treated them much better.
