Due to several incidents recently, we have decided to add a cancellation policy. If you have booked our Homestay and do not arrive on the check in date, for whatever reason, we still expect to be paid the full amount for the stay. If you give us at least one week's notice, we do not expect to be paid. If you give us 48 hours' notice, then we will accept 50% of the fee.
We would like to be paid the full balance of your stay on the day of your arrival in cash or beforehand if you are going to use a bank transfer.

It was an excellent stay, Michelle and husband were quite hospitable and accommodating. Good food, pleasant reception and the house is close to bus stop for easy transport.
I had a wonderful experience at Michelle and Cooper's home.
They are a lovely couple who are always available to help and give advice.
My bedroom was excellent! I slept wonderfully.
Cooper is a great cook! I love his salads and his very interesting conversations about life.
I really would like to visit them again.
Their neighborhood is very nice and safe.
Thank you very much!!
My cousin and I stayed at Michelle's home and she and her husband were wonderful hosts! They were very welcoming, easy going and helpful in every way. The home is located near public transportation and we had no problems getting where we needed to go. We took the evening meal a couple of times and the food was nutritious and delicious! This was my first homestay experience and it could not have been better. Michelle treated us like family and we really appreciated it.
Very relaxing stay with a welcoming couple close to major transit routes. Easy to get in touch with, comfortable accommodations, make you feel at home. Would recommend this bed-and-breakfast to anyone.
Michelle and Mr Cooper were amazing host going above and beyond to ensure both my husband and I were comfortable and had everything we could possibly want . From the get go, we felt at home and welcomed, with a feeling like we were just visiting close friends we haven't seen in ages and I loved their friendly disposition and will surely be my home away from home in London . The meals were scrumptious and divine ,I must say Mr Cooper is quite a chef and treated us as though we were in a five star establishment in some fancy hotel making our stay most pleasurable . The house is really stunning and spotless and wish I could take them back to mines . The stay was worth every penny and more than what We expected for the price . It was in a very quiet street with free parking on the road and a stones throw away from all amenities ie shops, restaurants, bus and train stations in the heart of everything really . Missing them already Will be back soon.
Me and my sister have been in London for two weeks and we lived with Michelle and her husband in their lovely house, which was very clean and comfortable and they cook very well. Michelle and his husband are wonderful people and I hope to come back there as soon as possible.
Mr and Mrs Cooper are lovely couple. The room is nice and clean. We enjoy our stay and the home cooked dinner specially prepared by Mr Cooper. It was very good! Thank you Mr and Mrs Cooper.
Michelle et Cooper sont vraiment adorable et formidable, je recommande vivement cette adresse vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés! Merci beaucoup à tous les deux.
From all homes, hotels, hostels or b&b in London I've been so far, the stay at Michelle's with her Husband has been the greatest. Unfortunately the trip itself didn't go quite the way it was planned for me & my friend. But staying with this "easy going couple" made it a fortune either way. They are open and happy for conversations, they help you out, take their time for you, show interest - but they still leave you in peace and not follow every of your steps. They give you plenty of freedom and trust - as long as you don't abuse it. I've had light breakfast during the week and a lovely stomach-filling english breakfast on the weekend (I didn't even know, neither expect it to be included). They had one Oyster card for guests to use while staying, which saved me from buying a new one or paying high ticket prices. And even an adapter so I could load my phone there. They provide you with towels, a flat TV and a radio in your room, clean beds when you arrive, a hairdryer, big cabinets for your clothing and stuff and two comfortable beds. You get a key for the house too, for when you're one of them night prowlers. The whole house, guest-room and the bathroom are all on a modern standard, are clean and hygienically totally fine. No mold, no spidernets, no porous walls and as for my case not even one crumb on the floor. Overall the house is not far away from bus and tube stations, you can get into the city relatively fast & cheap when you know how. There are fish & chips shops or pizza shops which some of you can reach by foot or bus in just a few mins when ur hungry (most open till midnight and have delivery aswell).
Would I go there again?: YES
Do I recommend it?: YES 100%
I had a fantastic time!
We really enjoyed our stay at Michelles House. They were very nice and kind hosts. It was very nice and I think we might come back.
