I have 2 double bedrooms to let in my home in south Birmingham. The house is well kept and of modern decoration. 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.
There is a golf course to the rear of the property and a country park 100 yards from the house. There is also a canal located close by.

    Sean is a very hospitable host, and made me feel comfortable and welcome, sharing the comforts of his home. The other guests also treated me with respect. The house is at the far end of the road, one mile from the main road, and from there a frequent bus service goes into the city centre. The locality is quiet, with a golf course at the end of the garden. My visit went well.

    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!

    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.

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.
