    I had an amazing homestay experience! Kevin and Patty were incredibly kind and welcoming, such a lovely couple! From the moment I arrived, they made me feel right at home.

    Kevin and Patti are great hosts. They took us in for 3 weeks, and were amazing. From bringing us up to Canadian tyre to buy pots and pans for our new home, to having a chat with a cup of tea they were the perfect hosts. Thank you both

    Great neighborhood, very comfy stay.

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.
