About the Homestay
I live in a quiet street in South London with my mother. We live close to three train stations, parks and shops.
The house is a three bedroom end of terrace house, we have a bathroom with a bath and standalone shower and a downstairs toilet. We have two reception rooms a good sized garden where we often have BBQs in the summer.
Near to our house is a river walk where I have spotted grey herons and kingfishers!

I have a nice stay in Karis and her mother's house. They made me feel at home. I would highly recommenD them
Always very friendly and welcoming.
Always makes my stay relaxing and comfortable.
Could not have been made more welcome.
Made me feel completely at home.
Would definitely recommend
I really enjoyed my stay there! Karis and her mother had been very welcoming, warm-hearted and open minded. I really enjoyed the conversations with Karis and her mother, who (both) always had a positive attitude. For me it was a perfect stay, as I do often need a calm and peaceful place, when I come back from hours of exploring and a lot of social connections and chats - here I had it whenever I needed it. Shops are nearby, as well as the nice "riverview walk" and, since I became familiar with the bus routes, the transport to the city was easy. I have nothing to complain about! I'll definitely come back again!
