Hello, welcome to Vancouver!
The location is ideal for new visitors. Just 15 minutes to downtown on the train. We live on a quiet, green street that's close to everything. Buses, trains and Oakridge mall are just a few minutes walk. Direct public transportation to UBC, Langara College, downtown schools and the airport.
My home is bright, cheerful and our neighbourhood is clean and safe to walk at any time. The back garden is a park like setting, green, private and very relaxing.
We live in a 5 bedroom home with my international family and I have 3 homestay rooms available for guests.
I have met so many amazing, adventurous people from all over the world, I know that I will continue to meet and look forward to many more.
You would be welcome to join us, short stays, long stays and full semesters are welcome!
I hope to meet you soon,
Thank you,
Dianne

    Dianne and her roommate are so nice. They are passionate people! The room was spacious and clean, and the cat was adorable. I had a great time during my stay. I already miss you!

    You will be happy to welcome Yoon into your home. Yoon is a delightful, warm person and we are so happy to have met her.
    We are sad to see her leave and welcome her back to visit anytime.
    We miss you too Yoon!
    Please stay in touch with us.
    All the best for your year in Vancouver.

    We stayed at Dianne house for 2 weeks. The house is very beautiful and big. Walking 11 minutes to Canada line Langara-49th Avenue Station. The nearest supermarket is call T&T, take Canada line for 1 station. There are Cereal for breakfast. No banana in the house because Dianne allergy about banana. Can not cook after 6pm. Can not use kitchen, if you have a cold. Prepare shampoo and body soap by yourself. There are two toilet that we can use, if the toilet is occupied, we can us the other one. Dianne share her pie for us, it's delicious. Dianne's housemate Svea give us chocolate as a Easter gift, she is very nice!
    我們待在Dianne 家兩週,房子很大很漂亮。從她家走11分鐘會 到Canada line 的Langara 49th Avenue 那站。最近的超市叫做T&T,搭Canada line 一站會到。早餐有提供cereal 跟牛奶。香蕉不能出現在房子裡任何角落,因為Dianne 會對香蕉過敏。晚上6點後不能用廚房。如果感冒也不能用廚房。要自己準備沐浴乳跟洗髮精。如果原本的那間廁所有人在用,還可以用另一間廁所上廁所。Dianne 有給我們吃她做的派,蠻好吃的。Dianne 的室友Svea 給我們復活節禮物,是兔子形狀的巧克力,Svea她人很好,平常也喜歡跟我們講話。住在這邊就是要遵守一些她的規則,像是吃飯一定要用餐桌墊、回到家第一件事是洗手、只要會發出聲音的塑膠袋都要回收,很小的也要...等。冰箱的空間沒有說很大,所以我們必須每天去買東西,煮東西,但晚上6點後就不能用廚房,所以比較趕。隔壁間有住別的客人。整體來說CP值還算可以。

    The stay with Diane was great! she is lovely and helps you with everything and gives you a lot of freedom, makes you feel at home. The rooms are great, they all have their own window. The house is close to the subway, 25 minutes from downtown, you also have a shopping center close by. She always has some things for breakfast and she always gives you advice of places of interest and things to do. We recommend her 100%!! she was our mom in Vancouver :)
