About the Homestay
My daughter, and I live in a comfortable family 3 bedroom condo. The room has a comfortable queen bed.
We have a large living room where we mostly hang out, surf the internet or watch movies. There is also a small patio to lounge on and enjoy the fresh air. We have no dogs or cats But we do have fish and a bunny (outside).
We live near public transportation so it is easy to get around from our place.
My daughter plays sports and I like to hike and spend time with friends. I speak Spanish fluently.

Thank you Rose for being the best hostess! The home is always clean and cozy. Highly recommend!
I enjoyed my stay with Rose in San Marcos a lot! Rose is such a welcoming, helpful and kind host, you can definitely feel at home right away! I recommend everybody who looks for a room in a great and safe area to stay with her. The usage of the kitchen and access to the pool is a great feature, too. Roses house is located close to grocery stores and restaurants and the beach is not far from her house either! There is a bus route for CalState San Marcos students and the bus stop is located really close to the house. I'll definitely stay there whenever I'm around the area again! It was a great experience!
Rose is very nice, friendly and family oriented. She made me feel welcome and I had a wonderful nights sleep. Everything in her home was clean and comfortable.
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 199 $£€ 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.
