About this listing
Available!! 1 of 2 rooms with single bed, desk, wardrobe, chest of drawers, clean, comfortable. Communal bathroom with shower, overlooking gardens, in 3 bed semi detached property in safe suburb 8 miles from the city centre, close to Trafford Centre
It is a welcoming family home ( note family home means a bit of mess not hotel standards!) in a safe neighbourhood with all facilities available and good transport links, as a single full time mum, I am social work trained and have taught English as a foreign language abroad and in the UK and been hosting for around 8 years, we have 2 friendly cats, breakfast is tea/coffee and toast and cereal, but feel free to store food for other meals and use cooking facilities - please also note that there is an unusual smell locally sometimes referred to as the 'eau de urmston' from local sewers - locals are immune to this and it has not affected house prices but some people are sensitive to smell which varies in intensity - this is totally beyond my control and nothing to do with my animals lol!!
All areas living room, kitchen, gardens and bathroom with shower, use of washing machine
Interaction with guests
We often spent time together socialising at home, watching films chatting and on day trips to local parks, museums and other attractions locally of which there are many including the Trafford centre, chill factor and sea life
Other things to note
House rules available on arrival, just sensible things about respecting family home and vice versa e.g. yr responsibility to keep cats our of room not mine
If someone wants to stay longer term 3 months plus, prices can be reduced by private arrangement
If self catering I have had to introduce an extra charge for fridge storage, electricity and gas usage and rubbish management and the extra cleaning this creates of £10 per week, also key deposit of £5 as too many people have left with the key - payable on arrival in cash please , if people bring lots of take outs and do not self cater (i.e. store and cook food here) the charge will be £5 for extra rubbish management, other house rules available on arrival or by email beforehand
