    Josephines place is at a perfect location, very easy to get around with public transportation and walking distance to awesome bars and restaurants and beach. The place is great, very clean and has everything you need. Josephine and the hole family were also very helpful since the first contact, available at all times whenever I had any questions. Totally recommend it! I felt like home.

    We felt that he is the part of our family,too. He gave me the advice how to deal with our youngest son, 16 years old and he is really caring. Recently I noticed he tried studying hard.

    Josephine is a great host and more ! She picked me up at the airport and made everything super easy for me to settle in the city. Couldn't hope for a better place to stay.

    Josephine and her place was amazing from the first message I sent enquiring. She is always helpful, very kind and I have really enjoyed staying here. The Internet is slow some times but fast enough for webpage access and general browsing. Overall felt very safe and easily accessible place to public transport busses. You do really feel part of the extended family as if you are just visiting some relatives interstate. Would stay here again if available.

    Josephine is one of those rare genuinely kind-hearted ladies with a PhD and braincells that are underutilized her daughter would say, and I agree. This family is just the best, be prepared though that going to the bathroom at night is rather a challenge but do not let that bother you too much as Josephine and family are well worth it, go with the flow....

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 250 $£€ 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.
