About the Homestay
I am a pediatric nurse on the north shore and have had students stay with me and my family for 10 + years. I enjoy having the students in my home. I have two beautiful rooms available with a shared bathroom. The bathroom would only be for the student or students. I would love to help with your studies and show you the beautiful town of Vancouver. I have one outside cat. the house is walking distance to grocery and other restaurants. Please let me know if you have questions.

It was very nice to share with Diana and her children ... they always made me feel very good and comfortable. The house also has a spectacular view of Vancouver and beautiful sunsets ... I hope to see Diana again and I recommend with a 10 hostess ☀️☀️
Here are my pros vs cons list. Please note i was staying friday-monday so it could be different during the week (?)
Pros: cute cat, big spacious room, nice bathroom, beautiful view, laundry available, offered to cook me dinners, gave me coffee in the am, just her in the house,
Cons: awaken at 3.30am to blasted Alanis Morissette goes out to see what's going on and meets guys from bars just chillin. Needed to run back to the house because i forgot my contacts that day and the house was locked, didnt have to code to the door and called her for hours with no answer, had people over every night and all hours. If you take too long in the shower you are notified (while you are in the shower still), the cat is an inside cat, the bedroom doors are made out of glass so if she's up partying guess what? YOU UP TOO! No “quiet time”. Told me she loved me when i went to bed, fell asleep at 7pm and is woken because of a party and when i went out i was asked to stay up because i went to bed early.
I think thats it.
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.
