    Gnanaswary and Mohan were amazing host during my one month stay at their lovely home. They were warm, accommodating, maintained a very clean apartment and expect the same out of the guests too. If I consider homestay in the future, I would definitely come back.

    I had such a lovely stay at this homestay. I planned to stay for only 28 days but stayed for 3 months!!! Saras and her husband were very friendly and helpful and did everything they could to ensure my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The massive house is very clean and the rest of the occupants are very friendly. The rooms have ceiling fans and are quite spacious. Location wise, the homestay is within walking distance to markets, stores, banks, and has a convenience store on the main floor.
    I Totally recommend this homestay to everyone.
    Thank you, everyone, for everything!

    It's was one of the most beautiful days in my life, this was the first time I visit Canada, and I was in need of someone to help and guide me. when I found this family, I felt immediately like I am with my Mom and My Dad.

    Mrs Sarah is very polite women, she is dealing with me like I am her son, she was a teacher and a sister at the same time.

    Also, her Husband was a very cooperative person, he helped me a lot on how I can spend my first days in Canada,

    The house, in General, is good, you have the right to access to the kitchen for cooking and using the dishes.

    Just in one word: You feel like as in your house

    Gnanaswary was very pleasant from the get go.
    She was very polite, easy to talk to and helpful with all the necessary information.
    On a couple occasions I asked for some written confirmations from her (to submit to the visa officer) and she went out of her way to make them available for me at the required time (very important).
    I didn't have the chance to be her guest, but I do not have any doubt she would be the perfect host. I highly recommend her !

    Sorry Pedro, that you find my place not so clean and a bit noisy. Well I don't know what to say. First time I am getting a review like this, people who have stayed with me want to come back again. Its alright, opinion differs. Wish you the best.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

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.
