Atención a los huéspedes
We love chatting to fellow travellers, but obviously understand if you are here for work, need a bit of privacy, or anything. We are happy to share our knowledge of London's best spots and have some tourist books you are welcome to borrow.
Do not hesitate to tell us what you are here for, and we'll accommodate your preferences. Becky is Australian and Stephane is French - house languages include English, French, Spanish and German.
Otros aspectos destacables
Couples very welcome obviously (there is a small extra charge for this however). No bias of any sorts (nationality, gender, sexual orientations, etc.)
The house is set up for young kids with cots, high chair and toys.
We are very happy to help with tourist or local tips for things to do and fun places to visit.
We always trust guests to behave like they would in their own homes. We are clean, friendly and respectful and expect the same.
We are both professionals who work quite hard, like our peace during the week when we are home, and having fun on weekends. We have a baby who sleeps well during the night (usually!). We have adapted the room (large combined lounge and bedroom) and the pricing (lowered) so it's good value for money considering the situation.
We have a cat. Smoking on the patio is ok.
We are an Australian-French couple, Becky is from Brisbane, living in the UK for 9 years, Stéphane is from Avignon, SE of France, 6 years in London. We have a one year old daughter.
We are closet geeks who enjoy culture, music, history, docs, movies, and travelling. Becky studied environmental science, Stephane administration and journalism. Becky travels all over the world for her work, and Stephane lived in Guinea / Senegal / Spain / Hong Kong / Japan / Canada / Germany / the UAE, so the odds are we'll always find something to talk about!
If you are looking to stay at ours, Walthamstow is well connected for central London, by tube / overground / British Rail. It is a cosmopolitan area, with a great market, an old village, plenty of greenery, a massive lake-park next door, etc. Our house is quiet and clean, at the end of a small cul-de-sac, with a cute shaded little garden, bird chirping sounds in the summer. We speak English / French / and some Spanish.
We have a cat called Stompy, very cute. She is obsessed with food, getting petted, and purring happily.
We get on well with our 2 neighbours, so if for whatever reason we should not be around when you arrive, we can always leave the keys to them for you to pick up.
