About this listing
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.

Ho alloggiato da Marijke per sei giorni, la sua casa è molto grande, luminosa e pulita e la cucina è ben fornita di tutti gli utensili per cucinare. Marjike è una persona molto socievole, mi ha subito messa a mio agio e si è resa disponibile per consigli e indicazioni, dandomi anche un passaggio in macchina al momento della partenza. Esperienza positivissima!
It was wonderful staying with Marijke and Jan for 4 nights. The room was spacious and comfortable (especially the bed), with lots of natural light. The house itself is beautiful, and the location is ideal if you need to be at or near the University. All the amenities are there - fast and reliable wi-fi, full use of the kitchen and back yard, etc. But undoubtedly the best part of the experience was getting to know the family, who were exceptionally kind and welcoming. I really felt like home, and would definitely stay again. Highly recommended!
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.
