About the Homestay
I live in Bournemouth with my partner Martin. Our house is located in the Redhill area of Bournemouth, with plenty of busses into the town centre. We moved into our home, in November 2016. We are able to provide our guest a double bedroom within a friendly and welcoming environment. The room is perfect for one person or a couple (please contact me for a price if you are a couple who would like to stay with us). We have recently installed a brand new kitchen. Our house has off road parking and a large back garden, perfect for the lazy summer days. We have 1 cat, Russ and 2 house rabbits, Thumper and Martha so it goes without saying that our guests must have a love and respect of animals.
Bournemouth is a really lovely town with award winning beaches, great restaurants and night life.
We have 2 double bedrooms available for rent although at the moment we can only accept short term guests in the "grey" coloured bedroom. Longer term guests are welcome in the other room, however only for single occupancy.

Kelly und Martin haben mir den besten Aufenthalt in England während meiner Reise ermöglicht. Ein super freundliches Paar in einem schönem, großen Haus, welches ruhig gelegen ist. Außerdem haben die beiden 2 Katzen. Der Aufenthalt war wirklich toll, ich habe überhaupt nichts auszusetzen. Immer wieder gerne!
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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
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.
