We are opening our home to international students for homestay to give our young children exposure to other cultures and to introduce the Canadian culture to international students - housing is also difficult to find in Vancouver. We have 2 young children, ages 2 months and 2 years, and have a dog, Izzy, who is 10 years old and very friendly and cuddly. We enjoy outdoor activities that include hiking, going to the beach, swimming, enjoying city parks, skiing/snowboarding and water sports. We also enjoy quiet time reading at home, going to the movies, and walking around the neighborhood. We have visited many different countries and enjoy experiencing other cultures - we have been to Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Laos, Japan, Germany and Netherlands.

We live in Mount Pleasant, which is central Vancouver, and close to many amenities, including restaurants, shopping, community centers, libraries, swimming pools, and is a short 15min bus ride to downtown Vancouver. We live within 1-5 blocks of 3 different transit stops that will take you anywhere in Vancouver (east/west, north/south, downtown Vancouver, Metrotown, skytrains).

We have 2 private rooms available in our home on the main floor, each with a double bed (with high end 'Endy' memory foam mattress), nightstand, desk, dresser, closet, and full length mirror. There is a shared bathroom, shared kitchen, and shared living space for the students that is separate from the family space upstairs.

Our expectation is that our homestay students will become a part of our family dynamic. We hope to hear from you!
