Looking for an awesome place to live while studying in Vancouver? You've come to the right place. We'd love to host you in our beautiful brand new home.
We're a fun, easy going and friendly family of four. Three out of four of us were born in Vancouver and we only speak English at home.
We have been hosting since June 2014 and have met so many wonderful people, learned about their cultures and taught them about Canadian culture. So far we've hosted students from India, Brazil, China, Taiwan, Korean, Switzerland, Ghana, Chile and Mexico, ranging from 10-65 years old!
My husband is a great cook! We offer quality meals....not cheap or frozen microwave meals, and/or we don't feed you separate food like some homestay families! We eat dinner together and take time to interact and speak with our students. We treat you like family. You eat the same food we eat! Be ready to try many different types of cuisines!
I am the unofficial English tutor. When we chat, often you will find that I correct your English, as that is how you will improve!!! =)
My kids are the lively, sometimes noisy, entertainment of the house. There may be requests to play wii, board games, play outside, etc. We hope you'll join them once in a while.
Our guest rooms are on the ground level with a large window. They are furnished with a twin/single bed, night table, desk and dresser/closet for clothes.
We offer a home phone with free calls within Canada, free high speed wifi access and laundry once a week. We have satellite TV, netflix, wii and a dvd player. Breakfast and dinner are included in the room price.
We have a large backyard and plan to start a garden come spring, so if you have a green thumb, awesome!
Our home is smoke and pet free.
Convenient location and easy transit. It's a 5 minute walk to Sperling skytrain station or 1 minute walk to the bus that takes you to skytrain or SFU/FIC.
By Transit: 25 min to downtown, 17 min to Simon Fraser University (SFU) or Fraser International College (FIC), 20 min to British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) & 28 min to Douglas College (New Westminster Campus).
There are several malls accessible along the Skytrain Route (Brentwood, Lougheed, Metrotown, Crystal Mall & Pacific Centre).
Whether you decide to stay with us or not we hope you love our beautiful city as it truely is the best place in the world!
