About the Homestay
I live alone in a large 3 bedroomed mid terraced house. It is located in Woking, Surrey which is convenient for all of the South East of England and is only 20 minutes by train to London. My house consists of a large living room, dining room and kitchen, upstairs are 3 double bedrooms and a luxury fully tiled bathroom. I have a well maintained private garden with patio furniture.
I am a 2 minute walk to a large lake with wooded areas and there are numerous local walks.
Woking is a very safe area and has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.
I am well traveled after working for many years as cabin crew and am approachable and friendly. I am a smoker but this is confined to the garden (and dining room in inclement weather.)

Woking town centre is a 7 minute drive by car or there is a bus stop at the end of my road with regular buses into the town centre. London is easily accessible with most trains taking 20 mins into Waterloo.

There are some fabulous local restaurants and the centre of Woking hosts numerous bars and wine bars.

Included in the stay
- Complimentary Light Breakfast
- Use of Kitchen
Guests are requested to remove shoes on entering the house due to the open plan layout and cream coloured carpets throughout. The integral garage can be used for storing shoes and coats. It is also possible to store any bikes in here.
Smoking is not allowed in the house. You are welcome to smoke in the garden and in very inclement weather, I do allow smoking in the garage.
As I only have one bathroom I would ask that you are mindful of the time you spend in here. I work from home most days so can be flexible with my morning routine.
The kitchen is available for light food preparation. Unless your surname is Blumenthal I would kindly ask that you refrain from using the oven and hob! There is a microwave, toaster and kettle which you are welcome to use. I have ample fridge space for any food storage.
I do include a light help yourself breakfast, consisting of cereal, toast and tea or coffee in the nightly rate. I can also provide an evening meal for an additional cost if this is required. Please feel free to help yourself to tea and coffee as and when you wish.
The price reflects the limited use of the kitchen, please be aware of this.
The guest room has a clock radio and TV with DVD player. It is only the DVD player working at the current time as I do not yet have an ariel for the TV in the room. I have a selection of DVD's that you can freely choose to watch. I can also supply iPhone chargers and hairdryers on request.
Smoking is not allowed.
Everything was perfect. Mandy is so hospitable, friendly, and kind. Everywhere was tidy and clean. That’s why I decided to meet her again next time with my family.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Mandy is a great host, always happy to see her. Safe off-road parking. She is my first choice.
Mandy will always make you welcome and make your stay pleasant. Off-road parking is also provided, and thats like gold. Looking forward to visiting Mandy again soon.
Mandy could not have been more pleasant and helpful especially as I have a mobility problem.
Mandy was a bit poorly when I stayed but was still very welcoming. House was very clean and tidy and bed comfortable. No complaints whatsoever
