We had 2 Spanish students staying with Andrea and her family and as their teacher, we were totally confident at all times that they were being cared for really well
Communication was excellent with her.
Both students told me unreservadly they would reconmend this experience for youngsters away from home for the first time.
I stayed three months in this house as a French Erasmus Student. I really enjoyed the area (a lot of parks and golf courses, Kingston upon Thames and Wimbledon at about 25 min by bus, and London Downtown, easily accessible from Raynes Park station).
The family is very nice and cooks very well ! The bedroom is very good, quite big and confortable.
I really enjoyed the time I spent here. That is the perfect place to stay in London, either if you want to study or to visit the area !
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
This is the first time we have tried Homestay (or anything like it), and having tried it, we will certainly use it again.
Andrea and her immediate family were away during our stay, but she ensured that her aunt (Gilly) took good care of us. Our rooms and bathroom were perfect and we were spoilt rotten at breakfast! It certainly was home from home.
Many thanks Andrea and Gilly.
Excellent. A lovely warm and caring family who went out of their way to help
A deeply religious family with a lovely house. The room was cosy and warm. Nice welcoming atmosphere. The hosts provided everything i need including evening chats and a lift to the airport. I'm not a great fan of dogs but Oscar is quiet and friendly. Everything was very good
Lovely stay. Andrea made me a cuppa on arrival. Bed was comfy with a shower room right next door. Breakfast available even when I got up late one day. And that included a boiled egg as well! Would thoroughly recommend a stay here. And Oscar the dog was lovely.
It was nice family and very clear house .
Lovely nice family
Delightful family - most welcoming. Comfortable home, good location for transportation into London by bus or train. Simply excellent.
