Amanda and Christine are great! The family is really easygoing, friendly, and flexible. The house is clean and the pets are an added bonus (especially Colin the cat).
Great, very comfortable place to stay with a lovely family. Nice and quiet away from the bustle of the city centre, but an easy bus ride into town. Thank you!

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.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
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.
