About the Homestay
We are a family of 3, myself, my husband and my funny 7-year old son. We are musically inclined. My husband is a drummer and a bass player, I am a spa uniform designer and a newly-licensed Financial Advisor and my son goes to Montessori.
We love the outdoors and spending family time. We give respect to our homestay students and expect mutual respect. We love hosting and showing what Vancouver has to offer.

Friendly family, we enjoyed our stay
They are very nice people but there were three people at one time using the bathroom and it ran out of water hot water twice and it wasn't exactly what I was expecting in terms of trying to get around all the Clutter it was in the house and I felt like they were just trying to make some extra money
