About the Homestay
We are a family with 3 daughters (20, 10 & 8), one dog and a cat. We live in a nice 7 bedroom home in a great area. We are located close to ocean beaches, parks, lakes, schools, recreational areas, library, shopping, restaurants and more. The bus route to downtown is a 5 minute walk from our house and then a 20 minute bus ride to get to downtown. There is a bus exchange close by that allows riders to get to many locations, easily.
