    Maurice was a fabulous host. He was welcoming and very helpful with information and a great conversationalist. He made me and my daughter feel right at home. His home is clean and warm with a lovely little shopping village close by. Buses take you directly into Edinburgh. We really enjoyed our stay with Maurice.

    My stay with Maurice in his house has been a really pleasant experience. I stayed for a total of 4 nights, and spent a lot of time studying, in which his house has a perfect atmosphere as it is very quiet and calm. Maurice is a good host and he has a lot of interesting stories to tell about the UK and Edinburgh. Finally, I think that it is a very good price that you pay to stay in a room that is in the quality that Maurice offers. Would definitely recommend a stay with Maurice in his homestay!

    I have spent a great time at Maurice's house for sure.
    I have lived a very good Scottish experience thanks to him.
    Maurice is a great man, he is a "Chef".
    I really enjoyed his company and also his family, his neighbors and all the people I met during these six weeks.
    I would never have thought of living an experience like this and having a host as good as Maurice.
    Everything was perfect, the accommodation was pleasant, welcoming, warmy exactly like its host.
    I strongly recommend all travelers to come meet Maurice.
    It will be difficult for you to go home after this experience, trust me !

    I would like to thank you, Maurice, for everything.
    I will not forget you, and we will see eachother as soon as possible !
    (Special note for Anderson's family : I would like to see Ulla(la)pool and come to visit bully bully people :D) xoxo

    J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Maurice.
    J'ai réellement vécu une très bonne expérience à l'écossaise.
    Maurice est un homme formidable, c'est un excellent cuisinier.
    J'ai réellement apprécié sa compagnie ainsi que celle de ses proches, de ses voisins et de l'ensemble des personnes que j'ai rencontré durant ces six semaines.
    Je n'aurai jamais pensé vivre une expérience comme celle-ci et tomber sur un hôte tel que Maurice.
    Tout était parfait, le logement agréable, accueillant, chaleureux à l'image de son hôte.
    Je conseille fortement à l'ensemble des voyageurs de venir rencontrer Maurice.
    Croyez moi, il vous sera difficile de rentrer chez vous après cette rencontre.

    He was okay.
    He invited me Sunday roast
    Thank you

    However, he said to me he will provide me all the meals, but he provided me only some day.
    He promised me he will teach me English but he said ”search on Google”.
    I wasted time and money.
    I don't know why he could promise me to teach English.

    Sorry that Riu felt the way he did, but he expected 3 meals a day and English lessons as well. I did advise him that I may offer some meals as gesture of goodwill. There was complete lack of communication and Riu had problem understanding English also he spent most of his time in the kitchen and eating, was eating almost the amount he was paying me in food and rest of the time he spent on his mobile watching YOUTUBE and just wanted to stay in the house all the time. I did tell him that I am not a teacher and gave him some topics to research on Scottish Culture and then ask me questions. If he stayed full term he would have cost me more money Then he was paying me. Riu is very indecisive person and wanted everything for nothing.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

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.
