The space

This is a lovely detached family house over 2 floors right in Sutton town centre.

Downstairs has one bedroom with a double bed, a spacious lounge/dining area (can comfortably seat 8 ppl), fully equipped kitchen, a separate shower room and separate WC, off-road parking for up to 3 cars, then through the patio door a good sized garden with BBQ facilities.

Upstairs has 4 bedrooms, one with a kingsize bed and a single blowup bed, the other 3 are all double beds. (We do have another double blow-up and a travel cot if needed, please just let us know in advance.) Then there's a family bathroom with a bathtub and a walk-in shower.

It's a detached house with solid, thick walls so you can get a good night's sleep.

Guest access

You will have the entire house and garden to yourselves for the duration of your stay - occasionally we may be living 'next door' in a converted garage flat, but generally we are out of the country exploring the world (check with us if you need to), however we will be available via phone/email 24/7.

The lounge features two sofas including a large corner leather sofa, with HD Samsung Smart Tv with Netflix which allows you to watch all the films/programs you want.

Kitchen is FULLY equipped with dishwasher, range cooker / oven, halogen cooker, microwave, kettle and toasters, blender, juicer, plus multiple fridges and freezers etc. Feel free to help yourself with tea/coffee/hot choc, cereals/milk/juice or any food in the cupboards. We do have a good selection of spices for cooking too.

Each room accommodates at least 2 persons. All fully furnished with a double bed (the one in blue room is king-size) and a wardrobe.

For families travelling with small child we do have a travel cot on request, and there's a high chair and some toys in the house too.

There are numerous gyms / swimming pools both municipal and private in the local vicinity.

If you'd like to hire our Ford S-Max 7-seater car for your trip, it's on the driveway. So you can do this easily through a choice of Airbnb-style car rental services - just ask for details of price and how to book!

We'll be there to meet you and hand over keys, show you around and welcome you to the property and area. Then we'll leave you until you depart, but will be on hand via phone or email throughout if you should need anything.

Very disappointed by the disrepair and general dirt in the house. The electrical wiring in most rooms is a fire waiting to happen.

Response from Seth & Joe:
Hi. Thanks for the feedback - I'm very sorry to hear you think the house is in any way unclean or in disrepair, especially since it has literally just been repainted, new carpets etc throughout and is always thoroughly cleaned for at least 4 hours before arrivals. After your early arrival which we accommodated, we checked up (as always) and were told that you were happy. Other guests have consistently told us that the house is cleaner and even more impressive and enjoyable than the photos. With regard to the electrical wiring, I believe you have confused internet cables for electrical wires. Almost the entire house is wired up for high-speed broadband, and therefore there are two sockets you can plug your laptop into. In some of the rooms, these cables can be pulled out from the sockets to give a little extra slack. We have no electrical wiring that is faulty or problematic, anywhere in the house, and I'm concerned that this feedback could put people off staying here!

Absolutely loved staying at this house. It was perfect for a group of friends who don't get to see each other often. Large bedrooms and big dining room table with lots of seating. Everything was clean and lovely. It's a very short walk into see the sights or have a meal at the numerous restaurants. Just perfect!

Stayed at Seth and Joe's place in Sutton Coldfield for a family wedding over a weekend. Lovely warm home that suited our extended family much better than a hotel so we could spend down time relaxing with each other. The property has loads of character but the location is a standout feature and we would highly recommend!

Lovely good sized house for our two families and had everything we needed. Great communication from the host and the supply of a few groceries was much appreciated. Thank you!

There was a group of us staying at Seth & Joe's place (adults & kids) and also our first time in Sutton Coldfield. The place was a perfect size to accommodate everyone and large enough that we had our own space but also the shared space to spend time with each other. Seth & Joe were responsive and easy to communicate with. The location is convenient to the train station, which is about a 15 minutes walk & gets you to Birmingham. There are several markets and restaurants close by that you can easily walk to as well. Since the house is on a corner, you can easily miss the driveway and have to go around. Also, the driveway is ideal for a max of 3 small to mid size cars as the space is a bit tight. Since this is their family home, there were also plenty of toys for the kids to play with, along with a lovely garden in the back. We enjoyed our stay & thank you for being flexible with our check in/out time!

We're Seth, Joe and little Imogen. Seth is a film-maker,web-designer and business incubator, Joe(she has a boy's name) is a photographer, artist and video editor. We'd like to describe ourselves as vagabonds, or gypsies haha, because most of the times we're travelling in different countries as part of little Imogen's homeschooling education.

Seth is from Sutton Coldfield, a Brummie, also lived in London for a long time. Joe's from China and been in UK for nearly 8 years. Seth loves Sydney and LA, Joe loves Paris. But Iceland is by far our favourite country, oh, and Lisbon too!

Occasionally Seth is an ultra marathon runner and Iron Man (although without the training), Joe's the lazy one she barely exercise lol. We're both massive foodies, vegetarians, love a good Indian curry and nice wine.

We'd love to welcome guests from all over the world to our lovely home!! :)
