Hello!

I'm Velrose, I live at home with my dog and would like to meet and share my home with international visitors.

There are three bedrooms at the property, open plan living for relaxing, a kitchen and dining room. Well kept garden with mature shrubs/plants

I live in a quiet, residential suburb of London. My home is very central, with easy access to Central London, Kingston, Croydon. The area is served by two parks, gym, many shops, restaurants and cinema.

I am 30 to 40 minutes to the centre, well served by bus and underground. The closest underground station is Tooting Broadway, but Streatham Common, and Tooting stations are close-by also.

If you live in my home you will get to know London - you will be able to walk around the city to get a real feel for it.

Gatwick Airport is about 46 minutes away from my home. You have the choice of train, or a coach that goes directly from Gatwick to Micham Lane, which is minutes away from my home.
Heathrow Airport is about 1 hour and 30 minutes away.

There are also shops and parks all around the area.

I look forward to hearing from you!

**The balance to be paid directly into my account with cleared fund before arrival or the balance of payment in cash on arrival whilst checking in.**

Additional Info

Please can you provide your own toilet tissues and towels.

    Velrose gave me a warm welcome and she was a nice host. She has always been kind and helpful during my stay, she takes care of guests well and she has a nice dog. The location is good to access to London, the bus stop is very close. A very good homestay experience.

    Velrose is a very lovely host. Just the right mix of making one feel at home and leaving one to their own devices. She was also very helpful with directions and whatnot when the internet insisted on two completely different routes for me to use to get to her place!

    Velrose was a good host. I had a great welcome and was offered a drink. Though my stay was for one night it was worth it. Will definitely return again.

    Homestay at Velrose is wonderful. A real welcome . Velrose is very much interested in health and sharing knowledge about health and is a joy by just being herself.

    Velrose's little dog is so sweet and he looks after everyone in the house too. A combination of home and bed and breakfast.

    I have a large room, everything I could want. Cooking facilities, fridge, own cupboard for dried goods. Washing machine available t use plus use of the washing line in her garden.

    Free wifi. It is very relaxed and you get the feeling you are appreciated as a person. Velrose takes an interest in her guests always asking how you are. It is a mutual, social thing. Time to restore your batteries and time to do the things you have always promised yourself but did not have time to do in a space for you. Privacy of course, when you want it and also a sociable place to be.

    Ideal for a holiday, time to relocate, plan for the future and feel that you have both been given to as well as to contribute in your own way what ever that may be .

    A positive experience all round.

    Marian :)

    My stay with Velrose was simply fantastic. She's a wonderful person, I felt at home and still feel like a family member, I'm sure I couldn't have made a better choice. Velrose is a good friend. ❤

    Velrose was very welcoming and we got on very well. The location was great a short walk and a bus journey from work. So just perfect for me.

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.

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) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.
