I have never tried homestay before. I would like more information. I need to have answers to the following:
(1) (a) HOW and WHEN do I make the first payment and subsequent payments (by credit card, cash, or what?)
(b) Will there be refund of unused stay beyond the committed notice period? or it will be credited for future stays?
(2) (a) Other than no smoking, what are the house rules to obey, what are the permissible times for going out and coming in? Is the guest given the key to the main door for access? Does the guest room have locks?
(b) Is the guest provided with the beddings, utensils for cooking etc that a hotel or hostel would normally provide their guests?
(c) Other than the host and the family as described, are there and how many other occupants in the property?
(d) Are the WiFi and heating systems of adequate quality?
