    Crisela is just the nicest person. She was welcoming and the room was big and spacious. It was really a good decision to book this homestay during my first month in Vancouver. The location is great because you have all what you need in Richmond really close and you can walk to the sky train in 10 minutes to go downtown in 50 minutes.

    The apartment is nice and clean and I had freedom to cook my meals and really felt at home. Thanks!!!

    It was absolutely amazing
    When I came to Vancouver, the first days where difficult for me, of course, I came to a big new city all by myself. But actually I wasn’t alone.
    Crisela and Maila cordially received me, whenever I had a problem they helped me and I felt a bit like home.
    Thank you for hosting me, cooking for me ( the thanksgiving dinner was fabulous ), laughing with me and for showing me around.
    I really enjoyed staying with you and I would definitely stay again.

    This was my first time to stay with Homestay, and it's really an unbeatable experience. The home is clean and cozy, Crisela is a warm and caring lady. It likes that I was staying with my family instead of staying with host.

    My stay was truly a home away from home. My hosts were easy to get along with, welcoming, helpful and very attentive. I left now having two Canada Aunties

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 250 $£€ 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.
