About the Homestay
I live in a 4 bed detached house 2 miles from the city centre with excellent transport links to the airport and centre.
There is a beautiful Victorian Park over the road, with tennis and basketball courts, a pond and boot camp every weekend (if you want!). There is a good range of local shops and other amenities.
The house is lively and sociable. We're into music, gigs, art, camping, travelling, yoga, gym, cinema and more.

- Use of Kitchen
This is a laid back house, but it's important that we all clean up after ourselves, especially in the bathroom and kitchen. I don't mind you having visitors but would appreciate you letting me know beforehand.
Please make sure you double lock the front door when leaving the house and at night, and always check that the back door is locked when you leave.
As with most UK homes, we recycle, and I would appreciate you following this, using the glass, paper and general rubbish bins appropriately.
Thank you and have a great time in our house!
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
She’s an amazing host, the house is perfect and she is very kind and helpful.
The time that I spend with Lara in her house was fantastic. She help me a lot and I felt very welcome. The house is well communicated with the city center and with the airport. The atmosphere of the house is really nice. Near to the house is the Alexandra Park where you can take a walk and relax. Thanks for all, Lara.
It was an amazing experience. I visited Manchester for a short period of 3 days and was very happy staying at Lara's place.
Although she was away for the period we were visiting, she made special arrangements for us and the atmosphere in general was very welcoming. It was really sweet of her to let us check in at 5 in the morning.
She has an amazing place hardly 2 miles from the city centre, I would recommend her place to anyone visiting Manchester and would myself love to be back if I visit again.
On a passer un chouette week-end dans un petit maison bien placé. Malgré un manque de confort et une fête “surprise” en plein milieu de la nuit (qui a été très bruyant) l’accueille et la bonne humeur de l’hôte était agréable et plaisante !

Great stay with Lara and Chia. Highly recommended for those who want to experience the real mancunian lifestyle.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Lovely house very clean nice people would recomend this homestay 10 out of 10
I had a really good time staying with lara and her family in Manchester. She was really helpful in every way and I felt welcome from the first second. The room is lovely. ❤️
Spent five days at Laras house and felt welcome from day one. Very helpful and nice. Can defininitely recommend this place and experience
I spent three wonderful weeks with Lara and Chia in a nice and warm house. What I might say is that I arrived here by myself and I felt like part of the family! We shared our interests, included typical meals, and went out together both for visit the city and enjoy the evenings! They are really kind and available but mostly..funny! The best company for your days. I'm gonna miss them.
