    Deb is a gem of aperson, the first day when I was going to land in Thunder Bay my flight got delayed bythree hours - I landed at 1 a.m. I thought she won’t be able to come and pickme up this late, but when I told her that my flight got delayed she said "no problem" and shewill be there. This was really a great help as it is was a new country and a new place forme.

    Secondly staying at her place is enjoyable and comfortable. You get to meet new peoplemake new friends and understand the Canadian culture. Deb cooks really good sowhenever she is cooking don't miss the food it’s going to be delicious!! especiallychicken, pumpkin pie and beef balls Oh it was so good!!!

    She willalways offer you to go out with her to visit places around the city she is agreat host, she knows the city very well. During my stay within a month she tookme to many places like parks, shopping areas, museum, scenic points, open airmovies, theater and went to many other places.

    I got to meetsome wonderful people through Deb made new friends, she is very helpful and will alwaystry to suggest you the best. Even though I have moved out from her place we still meet, she is a good friend.

    I will suggest anyone coming to Thunder Bay to stay in her home stay to have an overall experience of the city and people here, you will not regret !!

    I highly recommend for all who want to live a true Canadian experience, and also for those people who want to improve their speaking in English.
    Debb and the other who live with her are very lovely and careful.

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.
