    Eva, Eva, Eva, que dire. C'est une première expérience aux Usa, mon fils a eu son bac en plus de ses 18 ans, je voulais lui offrir un cadeau, un voyage à New York. Après plusieurs recherches, je tombe sur l'annonce d'Eva.
    Premier contact génial, elle m'a tout de suite rassuré, savoir si mon fils avait des allergies alimentaires, ce qu'il aimait, elle a demandé qu'il lui fasse la liste de ce qu'il souhaiterait visiter comme site.
    Un séjour magique, mon fils est ravi. Eva est allé le chercher à l'aéroport, l'a accompagné prendre son ticket de métro. Des son arrivée dans le studio il a trouvé un bon plat qui l'attendait Première journée, elle lui a préparé un bon petit déjeuner, l'a accompagnée visiter l'Empire state building, mon fils n'aime pas les photos, mais j'avais demandé a Eva si elle pouvait lui en prendre quelques unes.
    C'était une 2e maman pour mon bébé. J'étais rassuré. Elle lui a fait des bons petits déjeuners et offert des dîners. Mon fils m'a dit qu'elle l'a invité à une fête de son quartier il était comme à la maison. Elle a eu la gentillesse de le déposer à l'aéroport.
    Merci Eva, merci à votre mari , merci à votre voisine qui a échangé avec mon fils en français.
    Oooo Eva je ne saurez jamais comment vous remercier vous êtes formidable. Des mercis et un milier de bisous pour vous et votre famille.

    Eva is the kindest host that I've ever met. She always cares about her guest and actually my first visit to NY became unforgettable one thanks to her. Thanks a million Eva!

    Words cant begin to describe the lovely week i had with this family! As a young 21 year old i was scared about travelling to a brand new country all alone from the uk! But my worries went away! Firstly Eva and her daughter picked me up from the airport and soon as i arrived dinner was waiting for me! Eva was the perfect host she showed me around manhatten times square we spent two whole days sightseeing together! Eva showed me everywhere and told me everything i needed to know her lovely family was so welcoming and i enjoyed all the beautiful meals! The littlest things she did for me like making me porridge before she went to work was amazing! The love and care she shows for people is indescriable! In one week they are my second family! Most definatley i will be returning! 'My room mates up in the apartment was lovely and it was just like being at home! Book book book Eva! I can promise you , you will not be dissapointed! Thank you for everything Eva! Tiyana

    Staying with Eva was the best decision I made. She and her family made me feel very welcome and went out of their way to ensure my experience of New York was a memorable one. I would definitely stay with Eva again.

    Eva and her family were absolutely wonderful. They made me feel very welcome from the moment I made contact with them. Eva went above and beyond to accommodate my needs. For example, I ended up missing my bus the next morning to Virginia and she was extremely helpful and calm while I was stressing out. She put me at ease and even waited with me after work to make sure I was safely on the my way after entertaining me for a further 12 hours after I missed my bus. I would absolutely recommend this family for international travelers and I would definitely not hesitate to stay with them again! Absolutely wonderful people <3

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.
