We have a mid sized, open plan house with a large garden. It's an artistically designed house and is ideal to chill. It's close enough to the beach and my husband and I will be happy to take guests to visit interesting places in and around our home town, during weekends and holidays.
We have one spare airconditioned room with a toilet which we are happy to offer for a home stay guest / couple. We have a good library of books and a collection of DVD's. The guest can basically merge with us as a part of the family. It's just me and my husband who live at home.
I have a great cook who can make sumptuous local food!

    This couple is amazing. They entertained us with authentic food at no extra cost. The food is well prepared. We tasted the best fish and hoppers. They even provided us with International whiskeys at no extra cost. The property is well taken care of. Rooms are cleaned daily. They provided us with local knowledge.We felt like locals knowing that we woukld not be ripped off as 'tourists' which is usually the case with overseas travel. We were introduced to a local guide with extensive knowledge and very reasonably priced. They introduced us to the best value shopping. What an incredible stay. We loved it.

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.
