About the Homestay
Hello and thanks for checking out our room. I work mainly in property management and development. Philip is in retail management. I will be around to help or advice you about your visit to Liverpool.
We love to travel around the world mostly to warm countries. I love to read and watch movies.
As our guest, you will enjoy our lovely Victorian home situated just opposite Newsham park. You will enjoy the unique original structure of this old British design without any doubt.
Our motto in life is to treat others the way we wish to be treated, no need to be rude, no need to be judgemental, no need to be disrespectful, be upfront and honest, therefore, when we use the services of other Airbnb hosts, we always treat their houses as if it was our home and the people as human beings. We expect the same from all our guests.
*** My guest's rooms have stairs which some people might find difficult to manage.***
We hope to welcome you soon.
Taiwo and Philip

About the Area
Lovely huge park just in front of the house. This is a very quiet and safe neighbourhood, with limited parking space in front of the house. If you are visiting as a group, please limit the number of cars to just a couple. Also, you might have to park a couple of streets away sometimes. Parking is free. Guest parking area is on the pavement on the side of the Park. Do not park in front of neighbours houses. It is very important that all guests respect the neighborhood and do not make noise at any point in time, especially at night.
Getting around is very simple. You can either walk to the city centre (20 mins) , take the bus which is a few meters from the house or catch a taxi which will cost around £5. You can also catch buses 8,9,10 near the house to the city centre. There are plenty of restaurants in the city centre, however, if you wish to avoid the busy crowded area, the house is not far to the famous Lark Lane where you can find restaurants in a quiet setting. The famous Sefton park is also next to Lark Lane. Both locations are just a bus ride away.

Very fine, big and clean room.
Taiwo very friendly.
They might not shut off the warm in the daytime (stayed in november) + put a lock on the door to the room
Turned up and the hostess was in bed despite phoning ahead saying we would be late as flight not arriving until 10pm.Breakfast Lidl cereal room very basic no lock on the door for privacy when we left no goodbye from the hostess totally ignored and unfriendly disinterested in how stay was
Defo would not recommend staying there
Taiwo made us very welcome. The house (and the park opposite) is lovely, with plenty of safe on street parking. Everything very neat and clean. Basic furnishings in room, but warm and comfy, good value for the price. Rules in place to keep things nice, like shoes off on entry, so take your slippers, and no food / drink in rooms, which is understandable, and we were able to use the dining room for a snack when we arrived as well as the breakfast Taiwo provided. Shared bathroom, but right next door to our room, and very stylish and spacious as well as very clean.
Took a bit of finding as we don't use Satnav, but the A-Z got us there after a couple of wrong turns. Great location for us as we were going to The Olympia for a concert. We planned to use the bus, but it was raining, so Taiwo phoned for a taxi, which only cost £3! If it had been better weather we'd have had a walk round the park. Would definitely go again when visiting Liverpool.
Wonderful couple. They were very supportive. I enjoyed my stay there. I will recommend them to anyone coming to Liverpool.
When asked for a slightly earlier check in due to business arrangements I was told no. The room was clean but had no TV or mirror and was quite cold with no extra blankets. The details stated wifi however there was none due to no signal in the house. The check out time was before 10am which I felt was extremely early. No drinks or snacks were allowed in the room and I needed this for health reasons. The dos and don'ts came across as quite abrupt and patronising in the information sheets. It stated we were not allowed to have a bath and had to be quick when using the bathroom. I feared for the safety of my car as when pulling up to the property there was police patrolling the area and youths setting fireworks off. Overall you get what you pay for but the advert is misleading
Accueil sympa, chambre correcte, petit déjeuné convenable. Salle de bain propre et partagée avec les autres personnes ayant loué en même temps. Petits bémols : logement loin du centre (45 min à pied) et peu de commerces autour (seulement certains de type kebab pizza ou autre) et pas d'accès à un micro-onde ou frigo (seulement une bouilloire dans la chambre).
