Our home

This is a simple two bedroom two story apartment situated on the ground and first floor. It is relatively small but comfortable and ideal for a couple with one or two children exploring London on holiday. We are relatively new in this property so it is still in a fairly basic condition but it will feel cosy and welcoming - like your own little place in the city. We have a small garden at the back which is south facing and great in summer. There is no tv but we can get one if necessary.

Who we are

  1. I am from Colombia and work as a choreographer, I make dance-theatre pieces collaborating with other artists in this work. I also work for the Royal Opera House designing and managing Projects that involve professional artists and schools working together. I am passionate about film, one of my favorite directors being Bergman. I also like traveling, meeting new people and learning about other ways to live. I love dancing Salsa and listening to music. Sim is my parter, he manages a bicycle shop and is obsessed with mountain bikes and anything to with them. We don't have a car but have 7 bikes. He also loves poetry and photography. We have two adorable children (5 and 6). Oleanna likes being busy writing or doing anything she can get her mind busy with and Saki loves drawing and bikes..of course. We have done home exchange before but without agencies and have had very good experiences. We feel this is the way to travel so would really want to give it a go. We are open to offers long or short term.
