Welcome to our lovely spacious house with big sunny garden.
We are ideally located within a 10 min bus ride into town or a 5 min walk to the University. The Edgebaston cricket ground is also in walking distant and Canon Hill park is just around the corner.
The single room is nicely decorated and has a wardrobe, desk and chair and hospitality tray and a shared bathroom. Our guest can make full use of the big family kitchen to do their own cooking or just warm something up in the microwave.
In the summer you can also enjoy the sunny teras in the garden.
We are a very sociable couple who love to make you feel welcome in our home but also respect your privacy.

It was a really nice experience. The room and shower were nice and clean. Marijke and her husband were also very polite. I highly recommend them.
I stayed one night at Marijke & Jan's beautiful house, in a spacious and comfortable single room. I contacted Marijke beforehand about directions and various things because i had little time to prepare for the trip and she replied quickly with helpful advice.
The location is 10 minutes from Birmingham University, there is a 24-hour Tesco nearby too and the house is located on the main road. I walked from New Street station to have a feel for the city within the short time I had; it's very easy to find the house and it takes about 35-40 minutes on foot, probably 10 minutes tops by bus (also very straightforward). The room is clean, there is tea/ coffee, a desk, lamp and a comfortable bed. The bathroom is lovely as well and I had full use of the kitchen, should I have needed it. Jan and Marijke are lovely hosts, who leave you in privacy but very friendly and easy to chat to - thank you again!
You could not ask for a better place to stay! The location was fantastic, with regular buses into the city that only take 10 minutes. The room was clean, light and airy, with a very comfortable bed and two bathrooms for guests to use. Marijke and Jan are lovely, they made me feel very welcome and have set things out in the kitchen so that you feel confident about what you can use and so on.
I give it 5 stars!
I really like the room. It is better than what the pix have shown. The room is spacious and clean. The bed is comfy and cozy. The house location is very good. The bus stop is just in front of the house, about 10 min to the Birmingham city centre. The host & family are very welcoming, responsive and helpful. Thank you Marijke & family.
From the beginning I felt very comfortable in this very beautiful and spacious home. Marijke and Jan are friendly, helpful and respectful (when I had to work). They are thoughtful enough to provide tea and coffee in your room (with kettle). The room is spacious, comfortable, warm and has a good chair and desk. I will definitely be asking to stay again in the near future.
Marijke fue a buscarme en su coche y me llevo a su casa el dia de mi llegada. Desde el primer momento fue muy amable conmigo y me facilito todo lo necesario para que me sintiera comoda.
