Canberra Homestay

Come join our family in our all-inclusive homestay.

About your hosts...
Liz, your homestay mother, is a lawyer working for the government in the public service and a mother to our 10-month-old baby Leo.
Kal is a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and owns his own clinic in Canberra city.
Our son Leo is a gorgeous, quiet baby. Our room is separate from student’s rooms, so your study will not be disturbed by noise from the baby.
We are friendly, down to earth people. We both love gardening, spending time with our son, cooking beautiful homemade food and learning about other cultures.

Location...
Our home is located in Latham, a quiet suburb in Belconnen, close to the University of Canberra and Australian Institute of Sport. Our street is made up of established free-standing homes with long term residents.
The bus stop is located 200 metres from the house and Kippax shopping centre is 1 km away. The major shopping centre, Westfield, is 10 minutes from our home.

Rooms...
We have 2 rooms available. All rooms have a single bed, desk, wardrobe, chest of drawers, lamp and all the furniture you need to feel comfortable. The second room has its own ensuite.

What we offer...
We offer a home away from home. You’re welcome to come join in with family activities, or do your own thing. We provide all the food you can eat, plus unlimited internet, a comfortable light filled room with ducted heating and new soft carpet, new linen, laundry facilities and off-street parking.
Liz and Kal will help you settle in to life in Canberra. We’re happy to show you how to use the bus, find out what is on in Canberra and recommend places to go and things to do.
You are welcome to enjoy family life with us and our son, including practicing English, cooking, board game nights, gardening, BBQs, trips to see the Canberra sites, or just do your own thing.

    I had an amazing experience here! I always felt welcomed and comfortable, and never that I was imposing or intruding. The food was delicious and there was heaps to go around. The suburb is surrounded by quite a few good walking/biking paths and green spaces, which I really enjoyed. I'm very glad I got to stay here!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
