    I'm indebted for a long time.
    Thank you for welcoming me who can't speak English.
    It was good to see you.
    The dinner made by Liz was very delicious.
    I would like to eat it every day.

    I will do my best to study English from now on.
    I'm really thankful to you.

    Kind people, very receptive. It was the right choice to have a first adaptation with a different country.

    John and Liz are the perfect hosts. They invited me into their warm and beautiful house, provided breakfast and gave me tips and advise on places to visit during my stay. I would definitely recommend staying here and if I come back to Brisbane, this is where I book first

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
