We are Lynne, Mark and our 2 daughters aged 14 and 11 and our cat Zarkon and we are English speakers.
Our family has been hosting homestays for almost 10 years now and we enjoy meeting new people. We offer a good sized bedroom on the lower level which has it's own bathroom attached.
the room does have a small bar fridge for some small items but cooking has to happen upstairs.
Our house is on a quiet street but 5 minutes walk from a shopping plaza, a great fish and chips restaurant, bubble tea and a Starbucks and many other restaurants and coffee shops.
We are also 5 minutes walk from the buses you need to get to the skytrain or downtown.
It is our great joy that we are also right beside a skating rink in Winter and an outdoor pool which opens June through end of August. Also close by there is also a running track at the local high school and many hikes up Burnaby Mountain.

    It was amazing and priceless experience. They were really kind and took care of me very much.
    There is private bathroom for student, and small fridge. And I could have complementally breakfast every day. I completely felt myself at home. I will never forget this experience.
    I highly recommend it.

    Thank you, Lynne and Mark, for being helpful and friendly when I arrived in Canada.
    It was great meeting and chatting with you. I also enjoyed attending church with our neighbour; it was a unique experience for me.
    It's my pleasure to meet you and your family. : )
    If you are coming to Canada for the first time, I would highly recommend a homestay as your stay option. It is a safe and convenient place.

    They were so welcoming to me that the entire stay was comfortable even though I was a newcomer in Vancouver. I can not appreciate their support too much.
    The room was spacious and clean with a small fridge, a desk, and a chair. There was a large grocery store, a bank, restaurants, bus stops, etc. nearby, which made life convenient. Additionally, I could save money thanks to a free light breakfast and access to the kitchen.
    I highly recommend a homestay there. Thank you, Lynne and family.

    I recently had the pleasure of staying at the homestay with Lynne and her family, and I must say it was a truly fantastic experience. From the moment I arrived until the day of departure, everything exceeded my expectations and left a lasting impression.

    Firstly, the family is warm and welcoming nature instantly made me feel at home. They greeted me with a friendly smile and took the time to show me around the property, ensuring that I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. Their genuine hospitality and willingness to assist with any queries or concerns made a significant difference in creating a positive environment.

    The room I stayed in was cozy, with a comfortable bed, ample storage space, and a desk for my convenience. I appreciated the thoughtful touches like white board, and some local guide templates. They also provided me water heater. The bathroom was spotless and equipped with all the necessary amenities and towels. If you cook, then the best part is you get access to kitchen in this homestay.

    One of the highlights of my stay was the Lynne and Mark's knowledge and enthusiasm for the local area. They were more than happy to recommend popular attractions, and the best local eateries. Thanks to their valuable insights. Honestly, Lynne, Mark and kids are awesome and jovial, and they will always care for you.

    Lastly, the location of the homestay was perfect. It was situated in a safe and convenient neighborhood, close to public transportation and within walking distance of several landmarks. I felt at ease exploring the surroundings and taking in the local culture. Additionally, the landlord provided detailed directions and useful tips for getting around, which made navigating the city hassle-free.

    Lynne and Mark were amazing hosts! Being in their house was very comfortable, the family is super calm and friendly, the room is quite spacious and I never lacked for anything. Being here you will be close to everything you need, there are supermarkets, cafeterias, banks and a thousand other things. Lynne was very helpful in helping me find everything I needed, guiding me through the basics of the city, and including me in her family. Thank you so much! I definitely recommend this room and would go back
