I've travelled a lot in my time. I've stayed with families in Nepal and India where I return to frequently. My home is very light, and easy. it's situated in the south of Bristol with a view of the skyline. My garden is a great little oasis from the hassle and bustle of the city. A chimania on the deck for warmth, and plenty of cushions for comfortable launching, reading, meditation, yoga. It's easy to get into the city with direct bus connections.My household, is mainly vegetarian, but not seeking to convert or impose my preferences. I'm happy to take turns to share and cook evening meals from time to time. But that's a bonus rather then a constant. Breakfast of course is provided and there are several things to choose from.

Additional Info

Parking is free, right outside my house. I understand a bit of french, italian and speak german.

    It's been a pleasure to host Kiki. So considerate, tidy. Just wish I'd had a bit more time talking when he was staying with me. Such an interesting man. I'd be more then happy to host Kiki again sometime in the future. Thank you for choosing to book your stay in Bristol with me. Wishing you all the very best in every way. :)

    Sonja is an amazing host. I'm not sure how anyone could do better. She is very kind and understanding. The house is relaxing and the bedroom that I stayed in was lovely. The bed is very very very comfortable! It is such good value.There is a bus stop just a short distance from the house and it takes you straight into the city centre. I couldn't recommend staying here enough! Absolutely fab! Perfect host!

    Precious experience. Sonja has been a great support to me in my adventure in Birstol. She's very respectful, loving and caring person. She has become someone very special in my life, a great friend. I will never forget my stay at Sonja's house with all the amenities. A lovely room and a lovely home. Very happy to have been so lucky and have spent with her in her house three weeks !. A real home with a wonderful woman!

    Sonja is a very good host. If you would like to share the daily life of a person in Bristol, you have to choose Sonja ;)
    She is a kind and warm person. She is respectful of your privacy and available if you have any problem or question. It was really good to chat with her during the meals which were delicious.
    The environment is really quiet, you can hear the birds singing and watch a beautiful sunset from the kitchen. The house is charming, the room is cosy and the bed very comfortable.
    Everything is perfect, you will not regret the time spent with her.
    Thank you Sonja :)
