We live in a 5 bedroom home in Riverhead , so its semi rural . Buses are available also happy to provide some transport . We are a family of 4 . Mum , dad , son 24 , daughter just turned 18 . Husband and 2 kids are fully employed so its quiet with them gone during the day . We are very close to Restaurants and bars . So they are always looking for helping hands at the start of summer . Lots to do and see , also if you want peace and quiet . We enjoy family lunches , outings , travelling. At the moment my son is away overseas so we have that tendency to travel. We have a loving environment as any family should. We do have wine or 2 while gathered around for dinner etc . But overall we are well balanced family. So if you dig this kind of thing.

    Je remercie encore Minnie et toute sa famille, Cruz, Gina pour l'accueil de mon fils jean-baptiste, âgé de 19 ans, pour son stage de 2 mois. Il a été accueilli comme dans sa famille ! Il a été cocooné comme à la maison. Si vous voulez envoyé un jeune vous pouvez le faire en toute sécurité. je ne remercierai jamais assez toute Le Famille Simeki pour ce séjour. J'espère que nous pourrons nous revoir un jour ! Vous pouvez aller chez minnie, c'est parfait. gros bisous de France

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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
