COME TO LEARN ENGLISH OR JUST COME TO ENJOY A RELAXING/ FAMILY HOLIDAY NEAR THE SEA

We live in a 6 bedroom house, 5 minutes walking distance from Eastbourne's main shopping centre, train station and popular amenities.
Our family is a cosy foursome: Peter, my partner, is 43 years old and moved from Poland to England in 2004; Nicolas, our son, is 10 years old; Natalie, our daughter, is 8 years old and at last but not least there's myself, Lisa. I'm 39 years old, originally from Italy and moved to England in 2001.
Both my partner and I love cooking, especially BBQs. We also love outings and sports. Peter is fond of electronics...fixing mobile phones and computers is his favourite hobby as well as being the head chef at a local hotel!
I love spending my spare time with my kids and my students at home. I like discovering different cultures and trying food/ recipes from different countries. I cook a lot with our guests/ students.
We have experience of working as a host family/guest house since 2005 and really enjoy every bit of it! We also run English Language camps. Additionally, I run an education agency that helps parents, families and students choose a language school to study at or help finding voluntary or paid work.
PLEASE BE AWARE...WE HAVE A CAT...PEPSI is her name. You can see her among our pictures.
Thanks for checking out our profile. Get in touch if you would like to find out more....we hope to meet you in person soon!

    We've had the most wonderful stay. Exactly what I was after: sharing great moments with the family.
    The room was tidy and simple, nothing fancy but perfect for that purpose.
    Thank you Lisa and kids! We'll be back for sure!

    Very very nice place to stay for my 6 students staying in Eastbourne for 4 weeks. Thanks to Lisa, they felt like home in a safe and welcoming home. The house is very clean and very well located. Everything was perfect in terms of food, laundry, wifi, TV in each room etc etc.. Again, thank you for hosting my girls and for your patience and trust Lisa!
