    I recently stayed at a charming homestay in Maylands where the hosts truly exceeded expectations. Their warm hospitality transformed the experience into a delightful living. Engaging in lively board games and meaningful conversations created a homely atmosphere for me. Personally, the hosts seamlessly transitioned from being accommodating hosts to becoming genuine and dear friends, enhancing the overall stay. Their attentiveness, coupled with joyous moments shared, made this homestay a standout choice. I highly recommend this haven for those seeking not just a comfortable lodging but a memorable and enriching connection with amiable hosts.

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.
