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, Newari me (of the dialect of Nepal), English, French and Hindi.
We are here to help you discover the different cultures, the tradition of Nepal.
We have a small trekking agency "Sunshine Trekking" so we would assist you in organizing trip, trek, tour in Nepal if you like.
I studied hotel management and Master of Tourism, I had also worked in French Embassy in Nepal

Our destination is at heart of Kathmandu, it is at the best location for the tourist who wants to stay nearby Thamel; the touristic area which is harldy 10 min walk. As it is centrally located one should not be worried about shopping, restaurant, bus station, taxi etc.
We have a guest kitchen too, where they can prepare their meal. 

Namaste,
We are a small family of 5, my mother-in-law, my husband, our two daughters and myself. We (both) speak fluent French, English, Hindi, Nepali and Newari (dialect of Nepal). In fact, our family is a mixture of two ethnic groups (culture). I can meet you from two different cultures and also the other cultures of Nepal.

We work in the field of tourism, we have a small trekking agency "Sunshine Trekking" so we can also organize trekking, tour, stay etc.

Holder of hospitality and tourism, I also worked at the Embassy of France in Nepal

Our apartment is big. We are in the vicinity of Thamel (the tourist district) it is only 10 min walk. As we are in the center then for the shops, restaurant there is no problem.

    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

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.
