Stokes Bay is a beautiful coastal area with beaches, cafes, village shops, bike paths, footpaths and only two miles to the Portsmouth ferry. The house is nicely done out, warm and comfortable. It's just me here, and I let my spare room to language students. I'm 34, a professional, at work during the day, but around briefly in the evenings, and weekends. I like having students to stay, and encourage you to make yourself at home.
I like to chat, and am particularly patient and kind when it comes to understanding students, gentle prompting and encouraging. I have a CELTA qualification, and find it comes in handy. I spend most of my free time climbing, running, cycling and swimming. I love introducing students to sports, so you'll be welcome to join me/us (whatever your ability) if you choose to. My brother and family live a short walk away, and they also like meeting new people.
The homestay would be most suited to someone 18-35, either studying or working during the day, but looking for some company in the evenings and some weekends.
