Homestay message

My husband and I are retired. We live in a historic 4 bedroom, 2 bath 2-story house located in a culturally diverse neighborhood. We are just blocks from the trolley station and bus stops. Transportation by bus or trolley is easy from our house to the language schools in Downtown San Diego and San Diego State University.

We have hosted international students for many years. Our students came from Spain, France, Germany, Mexico, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Libya, Brazil, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Sweden and Russia. We had a lot of fun and learned so much from them.

Cost for staying at the Damberger Family Homestay is $850 for a private room. These rooms include a shared bathroom, three meals a day, cable television, high speed wireless Internet access, laundry facilities, off-street parking space, bicycle availability. All bedrooms have a twin bed, desk, lamps, dresser and clothes closet.

Our evening family meals include lots of lively conversation and interaction with you. Dinner includes an entree of meat, fish or pasta, a vegetables dish including a green salad, fruit and a beverage. The dessert is either ice cream, sherbet, pie or cake. After dinner is the time we reserve to help you with your language homework.

In our neighborhood, you will find a post office, banks, cleaners, two parks, lots of churches, clothes shops, public library, grocery stores, fast food restaurants, a bakery, drug stores, ethnic restaurants and a Starbucks all within an easy walking distance.

To get to know us better, see the photos we have on Facebook (Marge Damberger). In the photo section are pictures of students that stayed with us in the past and how much they enjoyed being part of our family. If you have any questions, or need further information about us, please contact us at or call

Thank you again,
