About the Homestay
We live in a quiet cul de sac in a leafy suburb near Crystal Palace Park in South East London with easy access to public transport and shops.
There are 3 bedrooms in total, 1 bathroom, a spacious living room and dining area adjacent to a small but functional kitchen. A small conservatory opens into a decked patio overlooking a secluded and evergreen garden where there is also my Studio/workshop where I spend most of my time restoring oil paintings. I am also a tour manager and enjoy travelling around the world.
We have two spare bicycles, which our guests are welcome to borrow during their stay. I share my house with my teenage son, a cute cat and a couple of small tropical fish. Between the two of us, we speak English, Italian, French, Spanish and basic Japanese and we love food from all over the world.

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) 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.
