Homestay message

Hello, we are a family of five:

Host mother and father and three sons ages 25, 21, 20.

My email: homestaysandiego(at)

Our beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is near a bus stop in University City/La Jolla area. A central location to major attractions, such as SeaWorld, Torrey Pines Golf Course, we are near many international markets, Beaches, Shopping Outlets, UCSD, SDSU, San Diego Mesa College, San Diego City College, Human International Academy, International Academy of English, Converse International School of Languages, LSI, Intrax, Parks, LegoLand, Tijuana Mexico, Wild Animal Park, San Diego Zoo, Soak City, Seaport Village and much more.

We are an active and fun family who have hosted exchange students for over 19 years. We have wireless internet access for you, a washer and dryer for laundry in a large home, in an excellent, quiet and safe family neighborhood. We are about 8 miles away from the ocean. The bus stop is only a 3 minute walk away. We have the best mild weather all year. We are very close to UCSD; you take bus #41.

*****Rent is $850 PER 4 WEEKS***** and includes, wireless internet access, and all utilities. Use of washer and dryer. International phone calls not included. Please bring your laptop/notebook. This price is for one student. We are a Christian family and I do not host to unmarried couples to share.

***Meals are optional and are $50 more per week and would include self serve breakfast and a home cooked healthy dinner I prepare**** (No meals:$850 for four weeks but with meals would be $1050 for four weeks)

Meals include continental breakfast and homecooked dinner only (no lunch/snacks). We have one room with a single size bed for students. I can change the room to two single size beds for two students to share (no boyfriend and girlfriend; we are a Christian family and don\\\\\\\'t allow that).Price will be different for sharing. You do NOT have to share the bathroom with the family. You have a private bathroom. My family and I have our own bathrooms. The room we provide is furnished with a bed (and bed linens), study desk/chair, desk lamp and closet. Siblings can share the room (at a different price).

We have a puppy: toy poodle. We don\\\\\\\'t drink or smoke.

We can assist you in finding the right school for you, or you can come just for sightseeing. I prefer a four week minimum, please.

By staying with us your English will improve dramatically and become familiar with American lifestyle and culture. All students and individuals will be in an environment where they can improve their English on a daily basis.

I do not accept students under the age of 18, sorry.

If you need someone to clean up after you and cannot clean up after yourself, then do not apply.

If your plans change or the dates of your stay change while here, I require a 30 day notice please.

Many of my students go to UCSD, SDSU, Intrax, CISL, International Academy of English or Human International Academy. Some are here for internships at the Scripps Institute or at UCSD. UCSD is a ten minute bus ride from our home.

Drugs or alcohol abuse are not allowed. We allow smoking outside.

I can provide airport pickup OR return for $30 USD from San Diego Airport.

Pictures of the room are readily available upon serious requests.

If you like being with a busy and loving family, then our home is right for you.

We look forward to having you. Come and learn English and have fun in a wonderful and exciting city.

Please do not hesitate to email me. I will respond to all your questions right away. Email me with information about yourself please or I will not respond. I know of other homestay families/relatives with no children if my home is not the right one for you. I would be happy to place you there free of charge.

Kind Regards, Nancy
