Angel was kind enough to show me to the local bus stop and take aways. She very kindly invited me along to church with her and as a Christian I really appreciate this. She also cooked a traditional Jamaican breakfast on the Sunday morning, which was the only morning I was offered breakfast.
I do not recall reading on Angel's profile that they are a Jamaican family so was not expecting this. My intention was to stay with an American family and to experience that way of life. Making it clear on the profile would be a good idea.
However, it should be noted that I did not feel safe in the area although there were police everywhere I went. The neighbours stay up late and are quite noisey so is not good for those wanting to go to bed early. Some information on the area is advisable so that guests can make an informed choice.
The bed was very uncomfortable and needs a new mattress which added to me not getting a good night's sleep. And in addition the light in the bedroom is not working and I did not get the chance to inform Angel.
This was my first Homestay and was quite an experience.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
The host cancelled the booking 191 days before the arrival date.
Angel has a lovely home and her family is very welcoming but you also have lots of privacy. The rooms and bathroom are set up so you have a place to work and store your things. The kitchen has space for all staying to store their food and plenty of dishes and appliances to prepare food. So long as other guests clean their dishes, the space is clean and comfortable. Location is great, various buses pass within a block and Dudley station is about a 10-15 minute walk away.
My room was spacious and clean. The tenants rooms are located on the third floor of the large house. That floor has its own bathroom and kitchen, which is very convenient. Angel is a very nice person and a very good host. She is open to questions and asks. She was so kind to get me the ride to the supermarket at the first day of my stay, and then showed me the area around the house. All members of her family are friendly and kind. Many thanks to all of them.
Estuve en la casa de Angel y su familia, 10 días. Mi estadía fue sin sobresaltos, muy amable y confortable. Angel es una muy buena anfitriona.
Angel is truly an angel. Felt at home from the moment I entered. My room was wonderful. She was so helpful...I felt like I had known her all my life.
Would love to stay with her next time I visit Boston.
It was a nice experience. Angel is a really good host. I had access to a kitchen and a separate washroom and the sense of privacy was the best part of my stay.
well,i had a good time there.I have no complaints and they are good people .Her and her husband were really good.I will sleep there again if I get a chance and I WILL recommend it to anyone else.
