About the Homestay
Welcome to our homestay! Our family loves to travel and host international guests. Our adult son, daughter and her husband live in San Diego.
Wes is a pastor at a local church and police chaplain. Aimee works from home as a certified Health Coach.
We love interacting with our homestay guests. If you are here to learn English, great! We watch TV with subtitles.
Our 5-bedroom 3-bath spacious home was recently remodeled, so all the carpet is new, the kitchen is upgraded, the back patio is renovated, and we added on a huge family room. Our dining room table seats 14, and we love to host special events. We have a game table to play chess, checkers, and cards. Actually, our family loves to play games. We'll teach you a few new ones :-)
You are responsible for your own meals. We have an extra refrigerator in the garage that you will share with our other homestay guests, and our kitchen is always available for you to cook for yourself (or for us - LOL).
We have a lovely backyard garden patio where we eat meals and relax when the weather is warm. My son has been working on creating a beautiful succulent/cactus garden in the backyard for two years.
You will find our home quiet and peaceful, yet full of energy with friends and family who like to visit.
There is a gym just 2 miles away that costs about $20 per month - Crunch Gym, plus a popular running path near our house around the Bonita Golf Course.
The public bus is a 10-minute walk, and the bus takes you to the trolley and into Downtown San Diego (centre city), Old Towne, Mission Valley, East County, and now La Jolla.
Citrus trees that produce fresh fruit all year long are scattered around our yard. You will enjoy fresh oranges, lemons, and limes plus a prolific passionfruit vine.
There is a reason San Diego is called America's Finest City, and showing off this fine city is something we do with our homestay guests. We have kayaks and enjoy the ocean and San Diego Bay. Hiking is one of our favorite things to do in and around San Diego. You can join us anytime for a hike or kayak trip.
We don't have any pets, nor do we accept any homestay guests with pets, even though we know they are part of your family. Both of our adult kids have dogs, and they come to visit on occasion.
Please reach out and ask us any questions you may have about our homestay, our family, or our fine city.
It would be our joy and delight to have you stay with us.

The bus stop is a 10-minute walk from the house, which connects to the trolley. There is a golf course down the street with a 3-mile exercise path that we use on a regular basis. A shopping mall is near our house just 2 miles away.

Since your bathroom is a shared bathroom plus the guest bathroom for our friends to use when they visit, we require you to keep that clean and picked up daily. You have free access to the kitchen, just clean up after yourself right away. You are responsible for your own food. We all share one washer and dryer, so be courteous. Your friends are allowed to visit but not spend the night.

super family he was very caring for me, we never lack for anything, aimee and wes often bring cookies to please if you go to san diego this is the family for you! I put a note of 5/5 it was perfect!
Where to start. Wes and Aimee are just simply Amazing. They are very welcoming and helpful in whatever situation you are in. They are easy going and very understanding. During my stay, they always made me feel like I was a part of the family and not just a "guest". They took us on a Thanksgiving vacation where we enjoyed a few days together and played a lot of games and ate some amazing food (yeah Aimee is a great cook). They always invited me to their family activities and took me as a part of the family. Also, one of the best things about living with them is the fact that whenever you see or interact with them, they always approach you with a smile! I highly recommend them for anyone who wants to be in a home away from home. I truly believe that they are the best you can find here or on any other website!
I sent a request of homestaying at the last minute but Aimee and Wes accepted me willingly!
House and rooms were very spacious,super cozy and clean.
Actually, it was first time to visit San diego but they guided me where I should go.
I spent great time in San diego and their house!!
I wanted to stay longer ....
They are so kind. They helped me with everything I needed. The house is so clean and pretty. Love you Aimee & Wes
The Andersons are very kind, nice, and cheerful people, I strongly recommend them if one is planing to stay in San Diego for whatever reason.
Aimee and Wes’s was truly a home away from home! The location is great and very safe, the home is quiet, and the room is very comfortable. I loved getting to know their sweet family while I was there and will hopefully return to visit in the future!
The family was extremely gracious and always available. The room was clean, comfortable and filled with considerate items like laundry basket, tissues, and towels.
I had the best time in San Diego at Aimee and Wes house. From day one I was a part of this wonderful family, and they took me in as their own daughter.
We have a lot of fun with playing and dancing as a family, and Aimee was the most amazing and crazy mom you can imagine.
I will definitely come back and visit my american family.
If you want the best stay in San Diego you should choose to stay with Aimee and Wes.
best Homestay ❤️
J'ai été accueillie comme une invitée faisant partie de la famille ! Chacun s'est occupé à rendre mon séjour formidable, en me donnant des conseils de visite, en m'invitant pour des sorties culturelles, sportives, familiales... Aimée a su rendre mon séjour unique par sa bonne humeur, son humour, sa patience (je parle peu l'anglais), sa gentillesse et sa grande générosité ! Aujourd'hui j'ai des nouveaux amis américains qui resteront dans mon cœur pour très longtemps...
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
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.
