No matter which homestay you choose to stay in, your host will be there to welcome you and offer their hospitality and assistance during your stay. Your host lives in the homestay with you while you're staying there. This is what makes a homestay so unique – they're not empty apartments or hotel rooms, they're real homes with real local people that offer accommodation to guests.

These range from European countries such as Spain, Ireland and Croatia as well as Canada in North America, Singapore in Asia, South Africa in Africa and Australia in Oceania (to search all our homestays check out the booking engine on our homepage). All our homestays are unique, so too are our hosts. They come from all walks of life, all ages, and are all looking forward to welcoming you into their homestays.

Boston host Lisa, is an active person who enjoys running, skiing and snowboarding. She also loves her city and the panoramic view of its skyline which she can enjoy anytime from the rooftop of her home.
