About the Homestay
Madeleine & Gareth Hughes love to invite people into their home. With three grown sons they enjoy socialising, cooking, reading, history and music. They have two cats and a very friendly Golden Retriever and live in the Redhill Park area of Bournemouth, close to quiet walks but close enough to enjoy the amenities of Bournemouth centre.

We are 3km from the centre of town and only a 15 minute drive from the airport and a 15 minute walk down a small lane to the river. The bus stop is only a 5 minute walk from the house and there are lots of bus options using this stop.

How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
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) 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.
