About the Homestay
We live in a townhouse located in central North Vancouver close to all amenities. I work full time, and my son is enrolled in university studies. We love going fishing on sunny days. There are no pets in the house. My house is kept clean and tidy and we treat you like family.
The room fee includes a light self-serve breakfast, and I provide meals upon request. The daily rate for a warm meal which is called "dinner" is $10 and optional. This can be requested prior to arrival. My dinners are home-cooked and well balanced. Shortened stays are non-refundable.
I am looking to host a guest who is independent between the ages 18 to 30 years and will be enrolled in an English Study program or doing an internship during their visit.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house.

Maria and her son were a lovely guest family for my 2 month stay in Vancouver. They were incredibly nice and helpful with everything I needed. The dinners were lovely and I really enjoyed my time with them. I'd highly recommend this homestay
I had a wonderful stay at Maria`s home. Maria is very kind, amiable and helpful; she became a good friend. Her home is cosy, clean and perfect to feel at home. The location is very convenient, close to bus stops (including night bus from downtown) and shopping facilities. Highly recommended!

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.
