Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please?
A: Yes to both!
Q: I see I'm renting a "Private Room". How much privacy do I have?
A: Quite a lot. The room is situated on the second floor of the house, with access to a shared bathroom.
Q: How much will I see of you?
A: Hopefully as much or as little as you like! If you'd rather your privacy we completely understand. If you want to come downstairs for a chat, to use the kitchen, or to watch TV we would be delighted to see you, hear about your trip and to answer any questions you may have about the area. We both work full time, so are likely to be out in the day, but should be around first thing in the morning and most evenings.
Q: Do I have a private bathroom?
A: Unfortunately not for this room. The other room available in our property has, so if you would prefer an en suite room please contact us about this room.
Q: What's my total booking price?
A: We don't know! With fees included, Airbnb only shows the total amount payable to the person booking. This figure should be visible after you enter your dates to check availability.
Q: Can I cook/use the kitchen?
A: Of course! You're welcome to leave stuff in the fridge too.
Q: Is breakfast included? What kind of breakfast is it?
A: We usually lay out breakfast for our guests and you're welcome to help yourselves to this. Breakfast will usually be what a mixture of what we've got in the house and what we're eating (typically a mixture of cereals, muselis, toast, etc). If you're staying with us at the weekend this might stretch to something cooked as well! If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.
We hope this helps to answer any questions you may have - should you think of anything else though please do ask.
Please let us know your arrival time. It's a good idea to take our mobile numbers in case of delay. We try and be as flexible as possible, but both have full time jobs which we have to try and work around. We have always been able to work things out so far though!
We are quite relaxed and don't insist on too many rules. We would however ask you to remember that the property is our home, so please take care of it! The inside of the property is non smoking; we would just ask you to remove any outside shoes before going upstairs; and not to remove any books or personal belongings when it is time for you to leave us.
Emma & Martyn were excellent hosts from the time of booking. Lovely quiet and comfortable room which contained very useful maps and guides for the house and the area. Very helpful with directions (we were attending the cricket at Edgbaston). Breakfast was very substantial and tasty. Thanks for a problem-free stay.
Really nice and clean place in a nice area of Birmingham. Super communication prior to our stay and Martyn and Emma were great hosts providing us a solid breakfast in the most cosy kitchen! Sweet cats! Will recommend this place at any time :)
I stayed with Emma and Martyn for two weeks when I was in Birmingham with work and they were the perfect hosts. They made me feel really welcome and at home in their beautiful house. They were really helpful and kind and it was great to chat to them in the evenings when I got home. In the mornings, they provided a lovely breakfast complete with fruit from their allotment!
The location is great; it's really easy to get in and out of town on the bus from Kings Heath.
I would highly recommend staying at Emma and Martyn's.
I was in Birmingham for two days for a conference. Emma and Martyn are very relaxed and helpful. The place is very cosy and the room sunny and comfortable as advertised. It was nice to find breakfast waiting for me! The neighborhood has convenient bus connections to the centre and the university and a nice park right across the street. Did not have time to explore the area more. I certainly recommend the place!
I had a lovely stay with Emma and Martyn. The house is huge and well-appointed, and is literally around the corner from buses to the city centre and the University of Birmingham. Very much enjoyed my time here!
The location was nice, not that far from the town, the room was nice and clean.Emma and Martyn were very helpful in everything i can say, since the night we arrived to the day we left. They really helped us a lot and i will definitely come again to stay at their place if i have the chance. Thank u for everything emma and martyn. We had a great time staying with you guys. :)

About the Host, Emma And Martyn
We are a young, married, professional couple. Relaxed and friendly hosts.
Emma: reading (recent kindle convert), travel, cookery (burgeoning jam and chutney empire), and planning how to decorate our home.
Martyn: most sports, listening to the radio (preferably BBC6 Music or Test Match Special), film, gardening, and cycling to work.
The property's other permanent residents are baby Sid (born in September 2014) and two cats, Hamble & Chubbs. Each of the three take turns at waking us up, but generally leave our guests alone!
