About the Homestay
We're a friendly family that have been hosting students for over 20 years. We have a 3 level townhouse near Capilano University. It's walking distance to the university, Superstore and many parks and trails. The bus stop is a two minute walk. There are two homestay bedrooms on the upper floor with a shared bathroom nearby. There is an outdoor pool for use in summer months. We have a large friendly dog named Kobe.
Patrice works at a private high school and Randy is a bus driver. We have 3 grown daughters. Danica, age 25 lives with us. She attends Douglas College and works part time. The other two girls visit often.
Homestay students can prepare their food in the kitchen. We just ask that everyone clean up after themselves in the kitchen. Dirty dishes can go in the dishwasher. :)

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) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
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.
