About the Homestay
Living with American Family is the best way to practice your English. Come to our Homestay and feel like part of our family! We started hosting ESL students in July 2004. We mainly accept long term ESL female students, (minimum 1 week stay required). We are married and do not have children or pets living with us. We offer a private bedroom with shared bathroom and also host a private bedroom with private bathroom that can fit a maximum of two people in our home. Our family is very close and we love to celebrate birthdays and holidays together! We love to share culture, traditions and learn about others. It is a blessing to meet such wonderful people and to make long lasting memories and friendships! We still keep in contact with most all that have honored us by Homestaying here. We hope to see you soon!
