My stay was better than I ever imagined. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. If you want to, you’ll find a family abroad from home here! Thanks Heather and Steve for everything!
We had a wonderful stay in their place. They are very welcoming and accepts us wholeheartedly for quarantine purposes. We are so glad that we did not feel as any other person, but also part of their family. It is a great way to start our journey here in Canada. The room that we stayed was very clean and cozy, got everything that we needed, can cook whatever that is available in their kitchen and the backyard has a very nice view. They also have 2 lovely cats and cute dog which is friendly as well. Their kids are very energetic, lovely and kind.
To Heather and Steve, thank you for treating us not just a guest but as a family. We will never forget your kind and warm welcome to us since day 1. God bless more your family and your wonderful children. Hope to pay visit someday again -Richelle and Gestine :)
LaRoy Family ( My family, my home) I stayed with them for 8 months, when I just came to Canada. they helped me, supported me, and were so kind to me.
My love, gratitude, respect for them can not be expressed in words or the number of hearts.
they are a gift to those around them, their kindness is a balm to all who encounter it.
Thank you for being there for me.
They were so nice and kind. Everything I need, such as towels, plates, and soaps was provided. Unfortunately, I was not able to talk and know them well because of self-isolation, but the homestay was great.
Great family! Children had a lot of energy and creativity. Location is perfect! Close to public transport and grocery stores. They were kind enough to let me extend my stay by a few days. The room had a lovely decor, very neat and tidy. I would recommend them to anyone looking to stay in New Westminster.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Stephen, Heather and the kids are a great family! The rooms are so lovely and beautifully furnished. You are close to public transport, shops, gym and everything you need.
Its a really lovely place to stay. Highly recommended!!!
My stay with the family was super awesome.they did everything to make me feel comfortable. They always have the time to listen to my conversations and they are very helpful and kind. My room was warm and cozy and the area is always clean. The food!!!! Oh gosh,the meals they cook are awesome. Coming from a country that doesn't have these kind of "Canadian cooked" meals, Heather sought out recipes that would make the homestay guests feel at home. Their kids are wonderful and active and full of joy and that reminds me of Jamaica alot. Plus if you love cats like I do, Sheiba can come cuddle with you. I truly miss this family already.
They are a really nice friendly family! I would like to have more time with them! Thank you for all
Stephen and Heather are the best hosts you could possibly be with, I only stayed with them for 6 days, but they were angels, the kids are very friendly and the cats are very cute and cuddly. It's only because if them that my first few days in Vancouver went by smoothly. This place is just perfect. ♥️
