Our comfortable and relaxed home is a two story home with big back yard and garden. I love flowers and animals. You will see flowers in our front and back yard, and hear bird-chirping all year long.
We have been renting out one of our rooms for about nine years. (We are new to homestay.com.) We have experienced as a host-family to many foreign students. We enjoy meeting new people. So far we hosted over eighty people.
We wish you relax and enjoy your stay at our home, and we respect your privacy.
See you soon!

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 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.
