We live in the former Olympic Village in Stratford London. Our home was built for the Olympics and athletes lived here in 2012. Our home is spacious and bright with floor-to-ceiling windows. We have a small front patio, a larger back patio and a giant green shared garden. This is an excellent place to relax and a place for children to play safely.
We have a lot of indoor and outdoor toys for small children (DUPLO, LEGO, wooden toys, play kitchen, play store and arts and crafts materials). We also have a variety of board games. We also have bikes that you can use, but we might bring bikes with us if we go on a trip ourselves.
We do not have a television.
We have quite a few plants and would appreciate it if you could water them while you're staying here.
Summer 2020: we are interested in local exchanges in the UK. We're open for short stays nearby (max a few hours drive), but also for those a little further away if it's for a bit longer. We're flexible and open to last minute exchanges. We're not planning too far ahead at this point.
We have a lovely cleaner who will clean our home before every exchange. We can also ask her to come after an exchange. Let us know if you're interested.
We have been exchanging when we lived in the SF Bay Area, in the Netherlands and are excited to continue exchanging while living in London!
We have three bedrooms, although one is currently used as storage for our many bikes ;). The living room has a comfortable sleeper sofa. The main bedroom has a double bed. The children's bedroom has a crib and a children's bed. We can provide an air mattress if people are interested.
Our kitchen is fully equipped as we love cooking, baking and good food (e.g. KitchenAid, MagiMix, Nutribullet, JURA coffee machine and wide selection of spices and other ingredients for cooking).

East Village is the former Olympic Village, which was built for the 2012 London Olympics. It's a lively, green neighborhood set up for pedestrians with playgrounds, parks and independent stores, restaurants and cafes.
Parks nearby are: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Epping Forest, Wanstead Flats, Victoria Park.
It is easy to get into Central London from our place.
We live really close to the Westfield Shopping Mall and public transport: Stratford International Station (Tube, DLR and trains).
We have a dedicated parking space which we can offer if we take our own vehicle. Otherwise there is parking nearby in the Stratford International parking.
