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). Schools that are close by transit include UBC, Langara College, Douglas College, BCIT, SFU Downtown, Vancouver Community College, and many international schools located Downtown Vancouver.

We have 1 private room available in our home on the main floor for homestay guests, with a double bed (with high end 'Endy' memory foam mattress), nightstand, desk, dresser, closet, and full length mirror. There are 2 student rooms in a private suite that includes a shared bathroom, shared kitchen, and shared living space for the students that is separate from the family space upstairs. ONLY ONE ROOM AVAILABLE AS OF OCTOBER 1 2019.

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 Mexico, Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Laos, Japan, Germany and Netherlands.

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