Apex named Money magazine’s No. 1 place to live in USA!!!!! My oldest boy is currently in Germany doing a study abroad. And during this process we have been introduced to his host family and friends. It has been a wonderful adventure for my son and we would love to be a homestay for someone traveling to the United States. We will welcome you to our home and family. As well, we offer any of the activities or trips we participate in to you. We are a family that enjoys being active, playing sports, soccer, basketball, bike riding, fishing, swimming, etc.. During the summer we enjoy going to our neighborhood pool with a lazy river and a water slide, includes year round access to a basketball court, tennis courts, and a clubhouse with a gym. We try to have dinner together most nights and especially like dining on our screened in porch where you can hear the birds chirping and see the occasional glow of fireflies. We just got a puppy, Portuguese Water Dog, she is hypoallergenic and does not cause allergies, she is a lot of fun! My kids play competitive soccer and if you are interested in playing I can help arrange it. We just bought a brand new home, the bottom floor of the house is for the homestay, a very large room (1,000 square feet) with a private entrance door and private bathroom. You will even have your own patio porch area. Parking is available. Apex is a wonderful friendly neighborhood. Very close access to 540 and highway 1. Short drive to Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Durham. We live in Apex, North Carolina part of Research Triangle: Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham, Duke UNC Chapel Hill and N.C. State. Apex, NC ranked #1 for best place to live in the United States by Money magazine, "APEX is the best place to live." Apex is only a few hours drive from the beaches with warm water and soft sand. I am a stay at home mom and if needed for a fee, will be able to help with school, classes, language, activities, paperwork, and friends. Pictures show a few things you can do in or near Apex: Jordan Lake - 15 minutes, river float tubing, Koka Booth Amphitheater, Greenway Trails. You can catch some fish just a short walk from the house. If there is something you would like to do in North Carolina let me know and I will try to make it happen.
