Comfortable basement suite in a 100-year-old recently renovated house for females.
Quiet, safe neighborhood, a fifteen-minute drive, or twenty-minute bus ride from the city center. Friendly family with a small and cute pet dog.
Presently, we have Bedrooms 2 and 3 available to female homestay students only. Bedroom one is currently occupied by a long-term female tenant, and we do not want to let Bedroom 2 to a male because our female tenant may have privacy issues if she shared a bathroom with a male.
Sorry guys!

The suite is separated from the main house so you can have 'me time' and privacy whenever you want.
The suite has a well-equipped kitchen, a front room with 60 + channel TV and Netflix, two bedrooms, so you could be living with another student, a bathroom with shower (no bathtub), and a study area.
The suite is a pet free zone - sorry, we have had too many problems with guest pets and our territorial dog!
We offer a significant discount for guests who want to pay in advance via electronic banking.

    Robert took really great care of us, and made every effort to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as it can get (and it certainly was!). The location was also very convenient, being nearby to a major street with good eateries and plenty of shops, and to two major bus routes into town, including a direct bus route all the way to Stanley Park. Would strongly recommend!

    Had a lovely 4 week stay here! It's an decently sized basement flat attached to the main house with all the amenities you'll need. The only issue I had at the start was the height; I'm 6ft 2 so my head swept the ceiling on more than a few occasions, but it's very much minor and didn't detract from my experience.

    The hosts are also lovely. It was a pleasure getting to know Rob and Yvette. I highly recommend staying here.

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) 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.
