About the Homestay
My two boys 11 and 16 and I living in multicultural Charminster in a 3bedroom semi detached house.
We live about 5 minutes walk from the buzzing Charminster Road with all its lush food, pubs, various bars, cafes and several shisha cafes.
The beach is a 5-10minutes drive or bike ride away.
We are located quite central - in a quite road.
The house is bright with a good size kitchen and dinning room.
I have hosted foreign students for many years and we all enjoy to hear about the different countries and cultures. We are very familiar with hosting Arabic students, especially from Saudi Arabia and have made many Saudi friends over the last few years. With the summer being so close - we get booked up very quickly.
Many thanks for looking at our profile and we are hoping to hear from you :D
We now have a new addiction to our family- Sandy a little Bichon Frise cross, she is a rescue dog and very tiny. She will be most of the times with me and I mean literally with me, she had a very bad start in her little life so we are trying to give her the best life.
She is not allowed in your room.

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.

This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
