Interaction with Guests
We like to talk, but will respect your space if that's what you want!
We both speak fluent French, German (and English!) with a little bit of Italian (my wife)
This is a really lovely area to live in - there's a primary school playing field behind the house with beautiful trees and two recreation parks 5 minutes away, free tennis. It's very quiet at night, but by day there's fashionable Wimbledon Village, and beautiful Wimbledon Common both within easy walking distance.
We're within 12 minutes walking distance of Wimbledon town centre, with District Line Underground to Southfields (nearest for tennis), mainline rail connections to central London (20 minutes) and airport connection to Heathrow (approximately 1 hour).
No smoking in the house, please.
Everything was great. Katrin and Oliver are very nice people, who made me feel welcome from the very first day. The room is excellent, and location is a brief walk to Wimbledon station, bringing you to center of London in under 20 minutes. I recommend.
Host was away, but the house was in very good order. Very well organised and communicative in the period leading up to my stay. Overall a very positive experience.
I loved staying with Katrin and Oliver. Their home was beautiful, room was clean, household was warm and welcoming, and the neighborhood was great as well. I especially enjoyed chatting with Katrin in the evenings; both she and her husband are really interesting people in addition to being very kind and friendly. Thanks so much for providing a comfy home away from home!
The Sterland family is the best host that anyone could ask for, especially after a long and tiring flight. They not only offered me their warm hospitality, but also some really useful advice for a first-timer in London. Thank you!
My stay with Oliver and Katrin was excellent.
Their house is beautiful, and the room itself was beautiful too. Oliver and Katrin are kind, intelligent and friendly hosts who made me feel at home and were there for me for anything or any questions I had. Wouldn't hesitate to use and/or recommend them again!
Katrin and Oliver couldn't have made me feel more welcome! They're a fun loving family of five, all extremely friendly, helpful, polite and considerate.
I had my own space whenever I needed it but I also enjoyed a few chats by the log fire with Katrin and Oliver who are genuinely lovely, fascinating people!
The house was great and the room I stayed in was really big with a comfy sofa in front of the TV. The single bed was very comfortable. It was a 15 minute walk from Wimbledon station but had it's own local shops with everything I needed.
I highly recommend this home from home.

My wife (German) and I are both teachers in Higher and Further Education, both in super multicultural environments. We're used to hosting and after living in Germany and France there's been a steady stream of family and visitors over the years. We have three great kids and a Jackie Bichon dog called Fred with a placid temperament.
We enjoy having people and will fit around you as best as we can. We love to chat, but if you want your own space, that's fine too!
