Namaste,
My family consist of 5 members, my mother in law, my husband, 2 kids and myself. At home we speak, Nepali our mother tongue, me newari (one of the dialect of Nepal), English, French and hindi.
We assist you to discover the different cultures, tradition of Nepal as already we are mix of two ethnic groups.
We have a small trekking agency "Sunshine Trekking" thus we would assist you in organizing trip, trek, tour, rafting in Nepal if you like.
I studied hotel management and did Master in Tourism. I work in my own homestay, my trekking agency and also working as a lecturer of French in colleges. I had also worked in French Embassy in Nepal. I am yoga lover and can teach you yoga too.
Our home is at heart of Kathmandu, it is at the best location for the tourist who want to stay nearby Thamel; the touristic hub which is hardly 10 min walk, tourist bus park (just 5-6 minutes walk), Swambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, old market Ason are in walking distance. As it is centrally located one should not be worry for the shopping, restaurant, bus station, taxi etc.
We have a sharing guest kitchen too, where long stay or short stay guest could prepare their meal but you support us by providing operational cost.

We have also 2BHK apartment, if you are travelling with a family or friends this is one good option.

Namaste,
Nous sommes une petite famille de 5 personnes, ma belle-mère, mon mari, nos deux filles et moi-même. Nous (tous les deux) parlons couramment français, anglais, hindi, népalais et néwari (dialecte du Népal). En fait notre famille est mélange de deux ethnies (culture). Je peux vous faire la connaissance de deux cultures différentes et aussi les autres cultures du Népal.

Nous travaillons dans le domaine de tourisme, nous avons une petite agence de trekking "Sunshine Trekking" alors nous pouvons aussi organiser du trek, tour, séjour, visite guidée, rafting etc.

Titulaire de l'hôtellerie et Master de tourisme, je travaille comme la secrétaire pour mon agence, je m'occupe de chambre d'hôtes et aussi je donne du cours de français aux universités. J'ai aussi travaillé à l'ambassade de France au Népal. J'aime beaucoup yoga et je peux vous donner le cours de yoga si vous voulez!

Notre maison est à la proximité de Thamel (le quartier touristique) c'est à peine 10 minutes à pied. Nous sommes près de l'arrêt de bus touristique pour aller à Pokhara et Chitwan également pas loin de la station de bus. Les sites héritages comme le temple du singe "Swambhunath", le Durbar Square, le vieux quartier "Ason" sont faisable à pied.
Comme on est bien situé il n'y a pas de problème pour les magasins, le supermarché, le restaurant etc
Nous avons une cuisine partagée, surtout c'est bien pour les clients qui sont pour longtemps. Vous pouvez nous donner une petite somme de l'opération.
Si quelqu'un veut la cuisine privée avec un salon, vous pouvez réserver un appartement. Nous avons un appartement avec deux chambres. Il y a la cuisine privée, un salon et deux toilettes, les équipements nécessaires (comme poêle, riz civière, des tasses, des assiettes etc)

    Wunderbar herzliche Gastfamilie, die sowohl perfekt englisch als auch französisch spricht. Die Zimmer und die Dachterrasse sind ein Traum, die Lage ist perfekt direkt am Thamel. Ich war einen Monat für ein Praktikum dort und hätte mir keine bessere Bleibe für die Zeit vorstellen können! Liebe Grüße und bis zum nächsten Mal

    Shine Homestay was really amazing. I stayed there for a month. The hosts Rabina and rishi became familly. They treated me as if I always knew them,always willing to go out of their way. I ended up in hospital because of a chronic condition and they made sure everything was taken care of. The rooms are very comfortable with the bathroom also amazing and new. The food was also very delecious. I would recommend anyone to stay here and you would be guarenteed the best,most comfortable stay.

    Homestay très très accueillante, neuve et très propre. Rabina et son mari parlent français et en plus ont une agence de trekking ! Ils sont toujours à l'écoute et prennent grand soin de leurs invités. La literie est très confortable. La maison est située au calme à 1km du centre de Thamel. J'y suis restée 5 jours à mon arrivée et 5 jours avant mon départ, je recommande vivement.

    We had a great time staying with Rabina and her family. The room was lovely with a great view, everything was very clean and tidy and the location is amazing. Right in the centre of Kathmandu and a short walk away from most attractions. The light breakfasts and tea she served were delicious. We would definitely recommend this lovely happy household

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 250 $£€ 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.
