About the Homestay
Located within York city walls in a quiet street, our home was once a 1940's built Italian ice cream factory which we converted into a unique three-bed house. It's an interesting and spacious home, with a contemporary feel and we've tried to retain some of the special character of the original building.
On the ground floor is your own private mini kitchen with fridge, microwave oven, grill, toaster and kettle, plus a table for two. You get your own key, so come and go as you please. We are happy to chat if you need any help, but we also understand that you want your own space.
Fresh bed linen and towels are provided.
Your room is on the sunny 1st floor with a double bed, comfy chair, wardrobe, desk and 40 inch smart TV. On the same floor is the bathroom. There is unlimited fibre optic fast wifi throughout the house.
I live at the property which is a 3 bedroom residential house.

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 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
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.
