    Murray and Marion are friendly, kind and helpful hosts.
    The room I stayed in was large , comfortable and quiet and allowed me to be as independent as I wanted but with easy access to my hosts when needed.
    The house is in a lovely neighborhood and there was a nice view from my room.
    Highly recommended.

    My stay with Marion was great, the house was as shown on the site and the host was pleasant. I had to extend my stay and when I checked with them they said it was . Would stay there again.

    It was a pleasure to host Robert. He enjoyed a chat and was very interested in finding places to explore. He was very respectful and tidy. Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to meeting up again

    Appartamento molto spazioso,pulito,fresco. Peccato il bagno che non è nell'appartamento,ma si deve scendere a piano terra passando in casa dell'host. Proprietari molto disponibili,ci hanno anche invitato al loro party in famiglia.

    Marion and Murray have a beautiful home, a huge, comfortable and private space for homestay guests and are easy, friendly, hospitable, helpful and funny people, a joy with whom to interact. Any guest not fully enjoying their stay here has some serious problems!

    Cheers Marion, Murray!

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.
