What is a Homestay?
In simple terms, a homestay is a stay in a spare room of a private family home which is offering short to long term accommodation to paying Guests. Quite a straightforward concept really but there is so much more to it!
Guests will have their own bedroom and generally have shared access to other areas around the house like the living and dining rooms or the garden or kitchen.
These spaces will be shared with the Host or Hosts who will be living in the home with the Guests.
The Hosts may be a whole family, a couple – young or old or perhaps a single person, in any case, they will be the ones welcoming you to their home and on hand to introduce you to your new surroundings.
