About the Homestay
This is a new house with minimal use so far and is therefore fresh and clean. I am well travelled with experience of staying in over 40 countries from budget homestays to luxury hotels so I know what makes a good experience.
The house is quiet and uncluttered for a minimalist unfussy feel, with oak flooring and white walls. There are two double rooms with their own private bathrooms (toilet, shower and sink) plus a single room with use of a shared bathroom. The shared bathroom has a bath, shower, toilet and sink. There is also a separate downstairs toilet and sink. All rooms have wifi and are double glazed and well insulated with adjustable central heating radiator for the winter.
Each shower has a main head or an optional removable second head. They are very easy to use and have good water pressure and consistent temperature.
There is a shared kitchen with a table, TV, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, electric oven, gas hob, kettle, patio doors to outside decking and rear garden. Breakfast is self-serve cereals or toast, help yourself to tea or coffee throughout the day. There is cupboard space for your own food, there are several shops nearby.
The shared lounge has two sofas, a TV, quality music system, books on subjects such as art, photography, design, travel, local interest, psychology, architecture, science.
There is a secure garage for motorcycle storage and a lockable shed for bicycle storage. Cars are parked on the street (Tenth Avenue) which always has lots of spaces and is in a safe neighbourhood.
If you need to leave luggage because you want to arrive before your room is free or leave after your check out time then I have space, just let me know. You can take a shower too if you need to freshen up.
There is a table outside on the decking, if you're a smoker then you can sit and smoke there.
In choosing this house I used sound measuring equipment to try and find the quietest place possible and this was the best I found. There is a choice of down or polyester monofibre pillows depending on your preference.
The flooring is oak so reducing dust and mites that are found in carpets. Similarly there are blackout blinds instead of curtains.
LGBT friendly, everyone of any race or gender is equally welcome here.

I booked this homestay for my daughter. She had an enjoyable time there although it was the first time she had tried homestay. Dylan was kind and extremely helpful and the accommodation was excellent. Thank you for sharing your home with her
