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 centre. All within a bus ride.
There are two universities within the area of Birmingham city centre
there is the use of the internet. I have two grown-up children, whom no longer with me, also six grandchildren. I'd like that you all feel welcomed, and have a good stay with honey and me in my home. Smoking is allowed but only at the back of the house, thank you.

Additional Info

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.

    I appreciate Sonia for hosting me, even though it was short term but she was very kind and friendly. I felt like I am with my family. Thank you once again.

    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 was very welcoming and easy to live with, and her home was clean and comfortable. And a very friendly little dog!

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.
