Hello! Welcome to my profile :) I've been doing this for over a year and there's a few things that's happened because I haven't set the rules out. Firstly please clean up after yourself, dishes or mess in the bathroom. Guys! Please put the seat back down when you used the toilet and wipe the seat. Ladies please dispose of your sanitry towels/tampons outside in the bins. Please also take bedding off the bed as it helps me for the next arrival :)
Smoking is allowed indoors and outdoors.
Warm and welcoming would have given and extra heart if could have parked outside. Would deffo book again
She is very friendly, polite and respectful. I really enjoyed my stay.
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Lovely host and place to stay :)
Great Location and price. Room is fine. Shaleskia is helpful.
The stay was fun and enjoyable. Very nice host.
Leider war das Badezimmer recht dreckig und man konnte die Tür nicht abschließen, ebenso wie das Schlafzimmer, das mir zudem mehr wie ein Durchgangszimmer vorkam, weil durch diesen Raum Möbel von der Gastfamilie nach draußen in den Garten getragen wurden. Außerdem konnte man auch hierdie Tür nicht verschließen, weil es keinen Schlüssel zur Tür gab und der Teppich im Raum zu hoch dafür ist. Die Eingangstür steht auch immer auf, solange die Familie zu Hause ist, da aber die ganze Zeit der Fernseher sehr laut läuft, kriegen diese nicht einmal mit ob man unterwegs oder im Haus ist...
Auch wenn man die Küche benutzen möchte, muss man erst mal das Geschirr der Gastfamilie spülen, da es nicht genügend davon gibt und diese das Geschirr erstmal in die Spüle stellen, um es dann später zu spülen.
First time in London and it was great. Shaleksia and his son are very nice people. The house is in zone 2 near the underground and from there you can go to any part of London you want. The price was affordable and I would stay there again
I booked this is for my daughter I have asked her for feedback 3 times I know she is under a great deal of stress so haven't received reply yet.
However knowing my daughter I would imagine if anything had been not to her liking she would have told me straightaway. So on that basis I would say she must have been content and happy . I know from my experience in contacting Shaleskia she was very very helpful and responded very quickly. My daughter saw the description of property , area and photo etc and area was a plus for her uni and both of us myself and daughter were happy before I booked it..
I got the quietness and privacy during my stays at her home , and I will definitely stay at her home second time in London.
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.
