About the Homestay
I live here with my little dog called honey, she just loves it when people are around because she gets all the fuss. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen-dinner, there is a back garden which you can sit out if the weather allows you. There is a nearby park, hospital, and doctors. Buses and a train station are within walking distance, however, you can catch the bus, to the train. station, if need be. It's about 2 miles to Birmingham city center. All within a bus ride.
There are two universities within the area of Birmingham city center
there is the use of the internet. I have two grown-up children, who do not live with me, also six grandchildren. All I'd like is that you all feel welcomed and at home. Smoking is allowed but only at the back of the house, thank you.
there will be a light breakfast, in the mornings, and all other meals incur at an additional cost. I dont speak any other languages, but i do speak good English, and can help if need be.

This homestay is the most beautiful place you could wish for in Birmingham. I was a little bit nervous about being abroad but thanks to Sonia I always felt secure and didn't miss my family as much because we had so many warm and great conversations. I learned lots about the British culture and Sonia always takes great care of the guests and is very kind and helpful. (Beware!) Most certainly you are at risk of falling in love with the little dog.
Sonia is an enthusiastic conversationalist, and although I am much less talkative, it is often found that people of different personalities get on well. So it was with Sonia and me, and I found her a very hospitable and friendly host. Also her dog was very affectionate, liked to be petted, and added a lot to the pleasure of my stay.
Sonia is a super host, she's one in a million, I enjoyed every bit of stay with her. Her home is welcoming and clean
I will recommend her over and over again.
Sonia was very welcoming and easy to live with, and her home was clean and comfortable. And a very friendly little dog!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Sonia and her dog Honey are wonderful! It was really nice to be her guest
I had such a splendid peaceful time with Sonia, though didnt give her time to show me around as i had my own programe, highly recomended and hope she will host me on my next visit.
Sonia is a very helpfull person. Respectfull. Her house is very clean. Although i've stayed there only 3 nights, but it was a wonderfull experience to have many discussions with Sonia.
Ms.Sonia has an awesome personality she is the best!
Very beautiful house and great location.
I had the best time with her and would recommend to anyone!!
Sonia was wonderful with me because it was my first long trip in b'ham and she help me with a lot of small tricks.
The position was perfect because you are 15 min walk from a train station and 15 min by car from B'ham center.
I'll always suggest Sonia to everybody.
