About the Homestay
My home is in a quiet suburb a short distance from Bournemouth town centre. Hurn airport and the local travel interchange are both nearby and easily accesible by public transport from bus stops just a couple of minutes' walk away. We are within easy reach of beaches, the New Forest, leisure centres, shopping, cinemas, restaurants, Bournemouth International Centre, golf courses and the Jurassic coast. We have a cosy single guest room with comfortable bed and shared use of the bathroom, lounge, dining area, kitchen and garden. Iam a keen traveller and enjoy hiking and mountain climbing locally and abroad. I speak some French and Spanish, and a little German as well as my native English.

Jenny and Tom were super friendly, down to earth people. They go the extra mile in ensuring you are comfortable and content. They are extremely helpful in advise, local surrounding amenities, bus routes etc. I would certainly recommend them!!
Jenny is the greatest host I have ever seen. She is so lovely and exceptionally welcoming, available for any kind of queries about your stay and eager to help. Her house is in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood on top of offering all the comfort and making you feel even more than like home.
Not having a downstairs toilet I found a problem, but apart from that Jenny was a very nice host and very helpful.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
