About the Homestay
I am a former chef and teacher of English as a foreign language. Everybody is welcome, professionals, holiday-makers, international students etc. The advertised prices include a light breakfast of toast, cereals, fruit, tea or coffee. You may use the kitchen amenities, but I can also provide meals and packed lunches for a small fee. The house is in a quiet residential street in Edgeley, Stockport. It is five minutes from Stockport town centre, a three minute walk from the train station, with a twenty minute ride into the centre of Manchester. Bus links as well as National Express coaches nearby. I also offer private airport transfers, ask me for details. Hablo español / Je parle le français.

Giles is a sweet and wonderful person. He is very attentive to the details and comfort of the guest. I am fully satisfied with the care and cleaning of the house. The location of the house is the good combination of tranquility and comfort for access to services. (The station is a few minutes walk). What else to say? I had a great time! Highly recommended!
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.
