I live in bournemouth (Southbourne) 5 minutes from the sandy beach, five minutes from the train station and I minute from the bus stop. The river and beautiful Christchurch are near by and the new forest is ten minutes by train.
Lovely rooms, double or single, if required for a small extra cost I can provide good quality food. We always spend time at dinner chatting with students about our days etc and helping to learn English. We have dogs who are very friendly but not allowed upstairs! We have many students that return again and again. Southbourne is a trendy area with nice bars and quirky shops, on the whole we have everything here.
All people here are CRB checked ! Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms fitted .............OUR RULES.........Please please Don't slam doors and be quiet when coming home! We don't like people we don't know in our home and therefore ask you meet your friends in the nearby bars or coffee shops, this is to protect you and us. We want you to have a great time with us so
We have no silly rules and you get your own key . Come and go as you please we just ask for mutual respect xx

    We had a great time in Karen's house. She was very helpful, kind and she has a good sense of humour as well.She was our second teacher. We learned from her a lot. We really enjoyed our stay

    I came to stay at the house 1 month but I was so nice I stayed 5 months. The house is clean and friendly. Karen will always help if you have a problem but gives you plenty of privacy. The dogs are very friendly. The beach and the buses and the shops are close.
    Highly reccomended

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) 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.
