About the Homestay
Large, light, and airy room with beautiful sea views across Bournemouth Bay. The flat is very centrally-located but in a quiet conservation area, and it's easy to walk to the centre (5 minutes) and Bournemouth's award-winning beaches.
The room rate includes the following services: breakfast, weekly cleaning, weekly bed-changing, and wifi internet. While here you have full access to the kitchen and washing machine. You can enjoy beautiful views of the sea from your bed with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning, and in the summer, you can enjoy your breakfast al fresco on the balcony, and watch the evening firework shows with a glass of wine - you'll have the best seats in town.
I'm very friendly and I love meeting new people from all over the world - I have previous experience hosting students (there are a lot of language schools nearby) and I also speak French, for any Francophone visitors. I am a CELTA-qualified English language teacher, so if desired we could include some lessons (at extra cost). I offer reduced rates for longer stays if you're here to study. Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to meeting you.

About the Area
The area is quiet but very central (0.5km from Bournemouth Square), only 5 minutes walk into the centre of Bournemouth and the Square's central bus hub (serving Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, and all surrounding areas e.g. the Jurassic Coast), and a 15-minute walk to the main seafront. In the other direction, it's a 10-minute walk to Bournemouth Travel Interchange (bus, national coach, and train), and the airport is only a 15-minute drive.
You'll have no problems finding the apartment block, but I will of course be available to help with directions. As I'm so close to the Travel Interchange I could even (work hours permitting) collect you.

Liz has a wonderful accommodation in a perfect location. The flat is amazing, very spacious and light. You can enjoy not only a sea view but also squirrels jumping on the pine trees while you're having your breakfast. All the shops are just 5 mins walk, 10 mins walk to the most popular seaside in the UK. Very good accommodation with a very friendly and welcoming host.
Liz's apartment is very close to the main centre and the beach. Very friendly host and comfortable room. I will definitely stay with her when I go to Bournemouth again.
Liz me facilitó mi estancia en Bournemouth y estuvo pendiente siempre que lo necesité, es agradable y su apartamento es tranquilo y cercano al centro. Muy bien.
