I have some house rules that need to be respected in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I much appreciate it if guests will be careful with the objects in my suite. Accidents are always possible, but damages need to be paid for. Please respect each other's well deserved sleep and try to be quiet should you come in at a late hour.
Rooms are ready after 3pm. Arrivals are possible at any moment during the day, however, only after deliberation with me. On the day of departure you have to check out before 11am. Please remember to lock the front door when leaving the house.
Animals are not allowed.
This is a NON SMOKING rental place. Smoking is therefore prohibited in the whole house. Yet you can smoke outside.
Illegal or improper use of the place is not permitted.
You are welcome to use the washer/ dryer during your stay.
Smoking is not allowed.
It was not really clean in the Bedroom/Bathroom/ Kitchen but Xia was friendly and uncomplicated.
Very comfortable stay in a very good area. Nice, clean and quiet. You will feel like at home. Host is very helpful. Recommend +++
How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
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.
