Hi there
Thanks for taking the time to read my advert. I am a seasoned traveller and have used home stays to travel the world. I have met so many awesome people and now I have my own home I want to share that with fellow travellers needing a place to stay. I know how expensive it can get and how stressful travelling to a new city and country can sometimes be. My aim is simple... make your stay as simple as possible.
About the home: the room you will stay in has a double bed. Drawers for your clothes and tv with netflix. There is a bathroom with shower and bath, toilet and sink (shared with me) A utility room so if you need some laundry done this can be arranged for a small charge. Fully fitted kitchen. You will also get to meet joey my little dog =) WiFi is available to use and I will also have a home stay box full of essential items you may need. Toiletries. Phone chargers. Pens. Notepads. First aid items etc
As I have only moved in recently I'm still in the process of making it home but it's come along way from a concrete shell!
The Location: the bus stop is right across the road and is a straight ride ride into the city of Manchester. Can take from 15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on traffic. There is a retail park a 2 minute walk away with large supermarket, Costa coffee, a gym, shoe shops and a few other shops. Lots of takeaways on the main road. If you are coming for a football event the ethiad stadium of Manchester City is close by. Various ways to get there.

Would be suitable for single person or couple.
No children or pets please.
Any questions feel free to get in touch.

About the Area

The house is located in a quiet suburb of Manchester, 15 minute drive from the centre of Manchester. Bus stop is across the road from the house and runs every 10 minutes through the day and on Friday and Saturdays there is a night bus that runs till about 2am. Bus will take you right to picadilly station before it goes into the city centre. So if you are arriving via train to Manchester you haven't got far to go to get the bus here. There is also a taxi rank at the station should you prefer that.

    Kelly is a very welcoming easygoing host. She also is a nice person to chat with. She has an adorable dog called Joey. Her house is ridiculously beautiful and well tidy. My stay with her with exciting and comfy. I loved every bit of it. I definitely recommend her for anyone who is interested in a relaxing accommodation in Manchester.

    Kelly was a lovely host, kindly picked me up at the station, friendly and helpful, but busy with her own life and left me to get on with mine - she had the balance just right.
    The room was basic but comfortable, warm and bright, had everything I needed (including Netflix), and the shared bathroom worked just fine.

    Kelly was really nice with me. She helped me a lot with useful tips, she came to pick me up at the station when I arrived, saving me getting the bus and she made me feel very comfortable at her house. She has also a lovely dog, Joey. Besides the room is cozy and clean. I really enjoyed my staying with Kelly and Joey and I can strongly recommend this accomodation
