Hi my name is Rachel Kim, I am 36 years old. I live with my brother who is 33 years old. He is a Japanese cook, so he stays in restaurant for so many hours every day and you guys can barely see him at home. We both like home party and go to fun party places in Gangnam and Itaewon area whenever time allows!
If you like to experience Korean culture, I have many places to show you around :-)

My job is an English interpreter so I am fluent in English and a bit of Chinese. But my Chinese is really bad. Since I have many experiences to guide foreigners in Seoul area, if you come and stay in my apartment, I also can show you around some good places in Seoul or other cities if time allows! But as I told you earlier, my job is very changeable depending on my work schedules. I only can hang out or offer you to go out when my work is not so busy. Please understand this. :)

You can stay a few days or few weeks as you like. Please send me a message!!! Many thanks!!!

    If I could, I would love to give more than 5 hearts as a rating! I had the most amazing two week stay with Rachel and Colin. My stay in Korea would not have been the same without them! They are both so warm, wonderful, and so much fun! I felt at home. Rachel, thank you so much for taking the time to show me around Seoul and for the amazing nights out. I have such amazing memories.

    Personne très gentille, malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu beaucoup nous voir. L'appartement est correct, et bien situé.

    I am glad to have chosen Rachel’s family as the host! This is my first time to visit Korea and I can feel I am welcomed. We had meal together and I have learnt a lot about Korean culture and language (indeed she is more willing to share with you, and her English is excellent) .

    These days are memorable and I have really good impression on Korea. Thanks Rachel for your care and hospitality! 고마워요, 마음에 또 만나요!

    Rachel’s house was very comfortbale and lovely to stay in! Although she wasn’t there during our stay, Rachel’s brother Collin was there to look after us instead which was great! At the end of our trip, even after we had left the Homestay, we met up with Rachel and she took us out on a day trip wich was amazing! Highly reccomend staying with Rachel!

    Rachel and Collin are great hosts. Always willing to help and make you feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute with them! Thank you so much for all your help and kindness.

    The apartment is located in a nice area, well connected by metro and bus. It really is a perfect place to explore the city.

    I've stayed at Rachel's place for one week. It was by far the best decison I made when I planned my trip to Seoul.
    Rachel is a great host. She makes you feel confortable and at home in a minute (which is a great deal when you're a shy person like me). She's always caring and proposing funny things to do.
    Really, I highly recommand her as an host !!
    Can't wait to travel back to Seoul to meet again !

    Thank you Anne, how are you? I felt so bad when I couldn't spend much time with you when you were here. I hope we can meet again next time and have more fun together. Once again I was glad to have you in my home. Take care.

How do I book?

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.
