    Gary and Joe, where do I begin...
    This was my first experience with Homestay, and my first experience with living abroad altogether, so needless to say that I had a lot of apprehension and fears about it. I wasn't sure about whether renting a room would be a good idea or not, because I was afraid of having to deal potentially problematic landlords. But Gary and Joe made my fears and apprehensions disappear overnight.

    From the moment I arrived, they did everything they could to make me feel at home. They joyfully welcomed me, took the time to show me the premises as well as my room, they told me about the city, what bus to take to go where I needed, they even gave me map ! They answered all of my questions, took the time to chat, let me know about the house rules and told me to not hesitate to ask them if I needed to now anything.

    The bedroom was comfortable, perfectly big enough to accommodate all my needs (and it had a great bed), the living room was very pleasant and being able to cook in a fully functional kitchen was very satisfying. On top of being comfortable, the house was always very clean and tidy, so even the two weeks I spent in isolation when I first arrived were pleasant.

    I let them know early on that I was not really the most sociable guy and could go for several days without really talking to anyone and they told me not to worry and very much respected that ! Sometimes we wouldn't run each other for several days, some other we would spend an hour or two chatting, but they never insisted on talking or anything when I didn't feel like chatting. They were also patient and did not hesitate to repeat or speak slower when I was struggling to understand a sentence because I wasn't used to the accent yet.

    All in al, this was a wonderful experience, and I was delighted I chose to stay with Joe

    I want to give you 10 hearts, but I can only give you 5 hearts. Perfect house, perfect people. They are so warm and grateful. They always smiled and welcomed and responded warmly to everything. They are so kind and nice people. If I go back to Korea, I will always miss here so much. I strongly recommend this place.

    Gary and Joe are the most lovely people to live with! Always there to help, to chat and for a laugh. Joe even showed me my route to my workplace by car, so that I could already familiarize the route. It was a pleasure to stay with them - unfortunately, it was only for six weeks. :(
    Wish you all the best and take care, Gary and Joe!

    I loved my stay at Joe and Gary's house! They are super friendly and we often had great laughs. For sure there was a very nice atmosphere in the house also with the other two guests. The house is very clean and in very good conditions. Very nice kitchen and large living room. Bus 40 stops nearby and connects directly to the city center. I would definitely recommend a stay with Joe and Gary! Alessio

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.
