It has a large kitchen, with a dining area, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etx. There is a shared living room, and the bathroom is shared between the tenants only as I have my own.

My stay at Sean has been brilliant. It was my first experience as a guest with Homestay and my first time ever in Birmingham and I truly enjoyed both! The room I stayed in was comfortable and the area was very quiet at night, allowing me to have a very good night rest. The bus stops were just a couple of minutes away from Sean's house, buses to B'ham Centre were frequent and it was very easy to get to B'ham's NEC due to an excellent bus and train network. I also have been very surprised and delighted to see how helpful and open minded the people in B'ham are, even with a foreign tourist struggling with the local accent... Sean and little Seamus (Sean's adorable wee dog) have been the perfect hosts and their place will be my first choice should I go back one day to B'ham! On the meantime, I wish them both all the best!

Clean comfortable room, friendly, helpful host who didn't mind staying up late to check us in. Don't worry about the dog, he's small and friendly!
Very decent and most friendly host. Stayed in his home for 6 weeks. Sean was always on hand to assist with any requests. A little more attention to detail in kitchen is required , my room was excellent, just more attention to kitchen in all aspects and same in bathroom.
Estuve varios meses alojado en la casa de Sean. La habitacion es muy acogedora y confortable, la casa esta rodeada de reservas naturales, lo que es de agradecer en plena ciudad. Sean me ayudó en todo lo que pudo durante mi estancia en Birminghan, una gran persona.
The host was very friendly and the bed was comfortable, unfortunately, the house, in general, was not very cosy. It would do with some new interior fittings such as carpets or even better wooden or vinyl floor to get rid of mould, and more ventilating is necessary for a fresher atmosphere. Storing away a lot of unnecessary stuff around the kitchen area would also create a homestay feel to the house.
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 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
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.
