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 a separate suite for homestay guests, on the main floor that includes a shared bathroom, shared kitchen, and shared living space for the students - you would be sharing with 1 other student. Our homestay suite is separate from the family space upstairs. Your private room includes a double bed (with high end 'Endy' memory foam mattress), nightstand, desk, dresser, closet, and full length mirror. Your monthly fee of $1300 includes daily dinner, wireless internet, and in-suite laundry. THIS ROOM IS AVAILABLE JANUARY 1 2021.
We have 2 young children, ages 2 years and 4 years, and have a dog (Boxer), Izzy, who is 12 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!
