I am a play therapist and my husband a teacher. We live with our 2 children and our graceful greyhound. We have hosted people from around the world and love welcoming the world to our home. We love cooking and eating, walking the hound, reading and watching films.

The space

Cosy, friendly and welcoming. Interested in the world and people who live in it, and we may be interesting for others. A fabulous exchange.

Valerie's place is a nice house in Sketty, pretty close to Singleton Park. Nearby there are a lot of small shops, and also a nice Anglican church with a very active community. What I really liked about Valerie's house is its atmoshpere: it is full of books and plants, and there is also a very sweet dog. Valerie is a great host, she always has something interesting to talk about, and she is very attentive to her guests' needs as well.

Valerie's is a warm, friendly family home, with beautiful original art and beautiful books, in the ideal Swansea location of Sketty. The hosts are kind and open/friendly and Val's husband Kevin recommended some excellent poetry by Welsh writer R. S. Thomas. Their lovely home is conveniently located right near/walking distance to Singleton Park, the breathtaking Swansea Botanical Gardens, the beach, Swansea University and Singleton Hospital and so much more. There is a terrific coffee shop (Square Peg Coffee House) with free WIFI and delicious coffees and herbal teas nearby. You'll also find Lloyds of London bank, a Tesco and a Sainsbury's market, a Royal post office, beauty salons, and more, every little shop you might need, as well as a pub, within walking distance. Staying with Val (and her family) was a bright spot for the start of my Swansea, Wales, UK adventure!

It was a pleasant surprise to find no TV, but instead lots of interesting books, which we could easily have spent the rest of our time reading! The space around the bookcase is a nice cosy area to relax in. There's a supermarket and other shops about 5 minutes' walk away.

Val and her partner were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They were friendly and willing to answer any questions. The location was very good and quiet allowing for a good nights sleep. The university is around a 20 minute walk whilst the town centre is around 20 mins bus.
