About the Homestay
Small room, in a decent flat ready for occasional use. Close to the bus stop for the city centre 30mins ride away, and not far to the route to to Bath. Most likely ideal for those coming to Bristol for a short period, possibly on a regular basis, or for those wanting access to travel to see Bristol and Bath as there is good access to both.
I live alone, and have a single room, simply furnished, which at a push can become a double, but it becomes cosy at this point. All newly decorated and a brand new bathroom for shared use. Living room, kitchen and bathroom are shared, but I have an armchair for the room if you prefer to relax there alone. No garden but very close to the park, pubs, and a couple of high streets.
I work office hours 9-5 as a community nurse, doing a combination of home and office hours, but often this is unpredictable, so I cannot have guests during work hours due to confidentiality. Checkout needs to be before 9am during the week for the same reason.

About the Area
I am in east Bristol, around 3 miles from the centre. There is good bus access close by to Bristol, Bath, Keynsham and beyond. It takes about 30mins to reach central Bristol by bus.
There are several high streets and supermarkets nearby where you can normally get what you want. There are decent pubs, restaurants and takeaways all within a short distance.

Included in the stay
- Complimentary Light Breakfast
- Use of Kitchen
It's just me at home, and although not houseproud, I do expect respect for the house, and myself, and that guests clean up after themselves.
This is not a party house, so would appreciate not throwing all-nighters, especially when I need to be up for work, unless the reason you're coming here demands it, in which case just let me know. That said, I'm known to go out for the odd drink nearby, and would like it to be a relaxed, welcoming environment.
People come to Bristol looking for a particular 'scene' or some kind of trendy vibe, but coming to me for this means you'll be disappointed.
Check out needs to be no later than 9am due to the confidential nature of my work.
Smoking is not allowed.
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 250 $£€ 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.
