We offer the best full service homestay in Canada, because your stay in Vancouver should be as fantastic as the city itself.
Our home is amazing, and our services and support for elementary and high school kids are on a much higher level than other homestays. I have been working with international students and kids for 14 years. I was disappointed with the level of care that many agencies and homestays give to international students, so I decided to do it better. Homework help, 24-hour unrestricted access to food, high-quality meals, group activities, laundry service, driving to and from school, academic counseling, teacher follow-up, medical and dental support and more. I work from home, taking care of my homestay students and managing my businesses online.
Steve is a 38-year-old white, English-speaking Canadian born and raised in Vancouver. Michelle is my beautiful 3-year-old daughter. I owned and operated ESL schools in both Vancouver and Seoul for 10 years. English is the language of the house and we all encourage our students to speak in English as much as possible. I work from home, full time focused on the students, so I am always available for you.
