About the Homestay

Urban Stylish

I live in an substantial victorian house in an upmarket urban village, Moseley. Though only minutes from the town centre, Edgbaston Cricket Ground and next to Moseley Private park it is quiet, select and has parking. Moseley village served place for restaurants, cafes and wholefood venues in the whole of Birmingham.

We have 4 cats and love animals and farming.

The house has 6 bedrooms 4 with their own washing facilities plus two additional bathrooms and a separate toilet, but I only accept guests in a maximum of two of the bedrooms whilst my children are at university or on holiday with their friends.
I have a 1/2 well stocked garden which guests are welcome to use.

    Arrived in the daytime and the owner's soon let us in as owner was out. House was a complete mess and only one room was ready even though we'd booked 2. Cat hairs everywhere. No locks on the bedroom doors or bathroom door. Massive fight by the owners around midnight one evening. No mention of breakfast. Beautiful houses on the road and very quiet street but there's no way this house should be on homestay or any other accommodations website.

    Host reply
    Homestay Host Family Sally in ,

    I would like to respond that I informed the guest two weeks in advance that we would have 13 guests at my home as it was the Moseley festival. She confirmed she was attending the festival and did not wish to cancel. I also explained I was on holiday the week before but my son and daughter were there to let them in if they arrived early ie at lunch time when they were booked in for the night. It is true there was an argument when we had too much alcohol on the saturday but it was resolved in the morningand they continued to stay sunday night without any comment. We have no intention of having locks on doors in our home as it is a family house and not a hotel. I think that these guests and us are a total mismatch and not up to the normal responses of our homestayers many of whom are back several times so we are not free.

    A very convenient place to stay for matches at Edgabston cricket ground . The parents in the family were absent throughout my stay but the daughter was able to fill in without any trouble. The room was a bit unconvential as it apparently was normally used by one of the family and no attempt had been made to clear his belongings prior to my stay. The neighbourhood was quiet however and within easy reach of local shops, restaurants etc

    My stay with Sally and Chris was enjoyable as I was made to feel welcomed from the very moment the door opened to the time I left.

    The house was very homely and located in one of the nicer parts of Birmingham, a short trip to the shops, I was able to get everything I needed; and I needed everything
    The neighbourhood is very safe and quiet; it even had its own private park only accessible by key fob.

    I would definitely return if I have the chance.

    Thank you Sally for the great hospitality! I stayed in the house for one week and it exceeded my expectations. Sally went far beyond her duties to make me feel welcomed and at home. It was a pleasure to hear all the amazing life stories she has to tell. And at the end she even offered me a lift on her car, which was a huge help considering the amount of luggage I had. I couldn't be happier with my stay there. Cheers
