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 or if you like to cycle, you can borrow a very good bike to do so. 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.

    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 :)

    Some people you just cannot tell how much beautiful, kind and lovely they are. Sonja is one of those people who is difficult to find someone like.

    I stayed one of two weeks that I have ever been experienced before in my entire life. During my stay I stretched my perception, physical body through nice worm massage and way of thinking. I also have fixed up some of the accumulated broken parts in my soul and spirit through sets of deep discussions with Sonja.

    If you are looking for a cozy place, quiet and comfortable, Sonja's house should be your first choice. If you are looking for someone to practice your english with, talk with about positive energy and learn from about psychology, Sonja will be the right host.

    After reading all my positive feedback, I do not think that you have an excuse now for not choosing Sonja.

    Thank you Sonja for everything!!

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.
